Are we living in a banana republic?
Vobert Radra - A full citizen of what he called a banana republic and a SIL (Son in Law) of an Italian-cum-BRC (Banana Republic Citizen) and the BIL (Brother in law) of half BRC and half Italian was probably very very right in calling his country - a big country - with a big 1.4 Billion population of which 70% are under BPL and 86% would benefit from the Food Security Bill according to his MIL (Mother in Law) Mantonio Aino aka Gonia Sandhi.
He must definitely know because he is in the Inner Circle of the First Ruling Family of the BRC.

May be he has other reasons too…

In which other country would the SIL of the Chairman of the Ruling Party be allowed into an airport upto the aircraft and without any normal frisking and security check?

In which other country would the SIL of the Chairman of the Ruling Party become a multi-billionaire within ten years and all the Revenue Departments, CBDT, ED, CBI et al, turn a blind eye and when an IAS Officer investigates and declares a particular transaction against public interest he will be the one hounded and threatened and not the SIL?

In which other country can you see the party functionaries of a Con and Crass party seeking votes on their own so called leaders, (one who subverted the Constitution to remain in power and brought in the only emergency in the 66 years of Independence and the other accused of Bofors Scam and who presided over the massacre of over 30000 sikhs in 1984) long dead in 1984 and 1991?

In which other country can the PM say that he and his FM are not involved but only the Telecom Minister and his party are involved in the famous 2G Scam costing the country an estimated 1,76,000 Crores?

In which other country can the PM say that he is the (only?) honest guy and a clean guy and therefore he has the right to continue in his post despite all others looting the country!

In which other country can the PM comment on incidents like the Nirbhaya's case only after a full 12 days and get away with it?

In which other country can you see the President and the Vice President of the ruling party totally silent either on incidents like Nirbhaya, Coal Scam, 2G Scam, Augusta Westland Coptergate Scam etc?

In which other country can you see an Ordinance cleared by the highest committee of the party and the alliance partners and approved by the Union Cabinet be withdrawn on a mere outburst of the Vice Chairman of the party thus undermining the entire Union Cabinet and the highest policy making body of the Government and still remain a member of Parliament?

In which other country would all the Senior Ministers of the Ruling Alliance maintain a deafening silence on the outburst of the Vice Chairman (incidentally he is not known to have held even a position of a chowkidar in any organization) on the Ordinance and fall flat to accept his version and withdraw the Ordinance?

In which other country can you see the PM continue to remain in office even after he has been continuously insulted, humiliated and rendered impotent as the Power Centre in the Government?

In which other country can you see the PM continue to remain in office even after tampering with the reports of the CBI on scams under investigation?

In which other country can you seem the PM continue to remain in office even after he is likely to be questioned by the CBI?

In which other country can you see 67% of the elected representatives to the highest law making body slapped with cases of murders, attempts to murder, rape, extortion and what not?

In which other country can you see a CM of a State being sent to jail under a Corruption, Misappropriation charge after 17 long years and yet the loot remains with the gang?

In which other country can you see the Vice-Chairman of the political party running after such a jailed CM for an alliance for the next elections?

Yes Vobert Radra, you were right…we are living in a truly Big Banana Republic!!

Mere Desh Mahaan (My nation is great)!!!
