Respected President of the function Raman Pillai sir,dignitaries honoring the dais and hall ,respected Govindhachariya , Jagadheesh ji, Dr Puthezhatthu Rama Chandran and respected friends,
Let me name two books one by the President of this convention Raman Pilla sir ,other is the celebrated book “SWARAJ by Arvind Kejriwal, the founder of Amm Admi Party , please read both and note the harmony of thoughts and words . Same is getting reflected in the discussions here .
Every epoch needs its text relevant to the context. These books together with other similar books ,articles and speeches provide the same , just like Mahatmaji' s 'HIND SWARAJ' ,and His life ,provides the text relevant to the context of freedom struggle thanks to the great leaders of Indian renaissance and freedom movement .It demands the required 'Paradigm shift ' for the alternate politics "Paradigm shift" is a term fathered,defined and popularized by great American Philosopher and Physicist Thomas Kuhn in his book “The Structure of Scientific Revolution,” (p.10).it has a lock from inside demands the change in our mind set .
Quoting Jegadeeshji and Govindhacharia from their logical presentations “Corruption has graduated from few hundred thousands to millions of millions . Unholy nexus spreads its web to every aspects of human life .Let me suggest that the anti-thesis to the same –need for clean politics ,based on values of renaissance and swaraj ,now gathering momentum. Thanks to the historical movement initiated by respected Anna Hazare and his committed disciple Arvind Kejriwal . Anti-corruption movement ,The jana-lokpal bill ,formation of the new political party all are going to change the chemistry of politics for a new India .
Social thinking gradually changing to a new level of optimism. But we should not under estimate the stock of dirty tricks at the disposal of the corrupted echelons of power .
Yesterday the 'Yuvaraja ' of the ruling dynasty in his own style rushed to the press with strong demand for 'clean politics' and to throw away the pro-criminal ordinance .Media is celebrating the crowning preparations. Now the polemic between Narandra Modi's Development and Rahul Gandhi's 'Clean politics ' flickering the prime time National channels . Trick of escaping from the public anger against corruption and deviating from real need of the people .'Yuvaraja is trying to play the inherited 'Mr .Clean ' image , but we cannot refrain from remembering – Bofors and Quattrocchi . We don't know the understanding between junior partners of U.P.A ,Congress and the leading opposition . And we will never know the proposed closed door discussions between 'Yuvaraja' and the Prime Minister after his return from U.S The ordinance was introduced for wrong reasons morally ,ethically and constitutionally ,its withdrawal is equally shameful . Real victory is that of the civil society and smaller parties yet to make its presence in the parliament .Congress and B.J.P competing with allegations of double talk to grab the credit of withdrawing the infamous ordinance .How quickly the senior Ministers changed their stand on the 'criminals -ordinance' . As Prof. Yogendra in a channel discussion put it “Yuvaraja after waiting long for getting crowned is launching the rescue boat from the sinking ship “.
I am fully agreeing with the the words and thoughts expressed here in different tone and style . This reverberates the contention of informed citizens of our country. Very purpose of formation of The Amm Aadmi Party is to clean up the whole system .Please visit http://www.aamaadmiparty.org/ . for further details.
