So many P.M.s
Yesterday every news channel was airing the news that Mayawati has considered herself to be the best and the only alternative to Dr. Manmohan Singh. Its not only Mayawati but there are many others who have already shown their interest for the chair of P.M. My opinion is not about Mayawati or anybody in particular. Its the greatest gift as well as curse to Indian democracy that anybody willing can hold any post though he or she may or may not have the required credentials. India needs such a P.M., who can march India to new heights, solve all the economic crisis that is prevailing, uplift the condition of farmers, provide better basic amenities to the people and parallely put India into the global forum and take an active part in the global decision making. We can't think of a prime minister who wins on the basis of caste based politics. If I have to say my opinion then I see only a few leaders who can lead India namely Dr. Manmohan Singh, L.K. Advani, Pranab Mukherjee(a person India must see as a P.M.), and among the young leaders mainly P. Chidambaram, Sushma Swaraj and there may be few others. Its not bad to think of becoming prime minister but saying one should introspect as to whether he or she would be a good match to the prestige and dignity attached to the post. Its definitely not a child's play job. A decision may affect crores of people. And we perhaps don't require a prime minister to remain within the shackles of caste or any other matter as it may be. So my friends while voting its a duty of ours to think and then vote the right person as each one of our vote will count and we should make it count.
