Natwar got this right …. atleast!!

Concentrate on this list:

  • DR. MANMOHAN SINGH Prime Minister
  • SHRI ARJUN SINGH Minister of Human Resource Development
  • DR. ANBUMANI RAMADOSS Minister of Health & Family Welfare
  • SMT. AMBIKA SONI Minister of Tourism and Minister of Culture.

All of them are Rajya Sabha Members. And we call India a democracy. Ironic?

I have just listed people who have made major policy decisions and who have been seen defending the government. Also, this is not an argument against Rajya Sabha. But these are not the people who have been elected by ‘We the People’. Is this right? I don’t know, but I don’t like it.

As far as Manmohan Singh is considered, he must be knowing that even Indra Kumar Gujral got elected for Lok Sabha. I don't know what is holding him back even after having the blessings of Madam. If spirit of Democracy is not important enough then atleast having a upper hand over people like Natwar and Arjun should drive to get elected for the upper house.
