A lifetime of achievements

This year NDTV presented its Indian of the year awards which was decided by a jury which consisted of people like Shashi Tharoor and I tend to agree with their selections for most of the categories except for the lifetime achievement award which was presented to Lal Krishna Advani. This was the worst selection the jury could have made. What kind of achievements were these people thinking about? Here is a person who came to limelight on only one plank…communism, divisive politics, hatred against one particular community or is it just a simple (safest) case of selecting the senior most politician that we have in active politics now that Atal Behari Vajpayee has retired (not that even he deserved this award).

Let us list out few of his events in his political life… The most important one is his Somnath to Ayodhya rath yatra which resulted in the demolition of Babri Masjid and the subsequent communal riots in rest of the country and his party came to power solely on the election promise that his party will build the Ram mandir and when they did occupy the treasury benches then they conveniently forgot about it to remain in power saying they were following coalition dharma but in fact were being following the dharma of hypocrisy.

Now when he was in power first as a home minister and then as the deputy prime minister there was a genocide committed by his party in Gujarat and what did he do to prevent it ? ZILCH.

Also Mr.Advani never gets tired of calling names to prime minister Mr.Manmohan Singh accusing him of being soft of terror and it was his government whose mishandling of the Kandahar resulted in the release of so many dreaded terrorists from India and it was during his tenure as home minister that terrorists attacked our parliament and the Akshardham Temple in Gujarat…

Indeed it has been a lifetime of achievements……. Mr. Pranoy Roy hope you do a good job next time….

Perfect power statement.The choice of advani's name is unsolicited.I believe NDTV had to succumb to the pressure of having L K Advani as one of the nominees.It would be embarrassing to have a prospective prime ministerial turn up for the award ceremony and get nothing.
