Mr. Bhola Singh, 77 year old BJP Member of Parliament from Begu Sarai Constituency, Bihar, looks like a courageous person. By virtue of his age, or by virtue of his Seniority (8 times M.L.A., and Former Home Minister of Bihar), or by virtue of his Educational Qualifications (A Ph.D), he might have picked up this courage. Mr. Narendra Modi might not have had a prior knowledge of his courage or outspokenness. Else, he might have dumped Mr. Bhola Singh also to the Old Age Home, like other Seniors and Stalvarts like Shri L.K. Advani and Shri Murali Manohar Joshi. Here is a DeccanChronicle.Com webpage dated 26th Apr. 2016 reporting how Mr. Bhola Singh spoke in Lok Sabha, pointing out the seriousness of our trade deficit with China, and questioning the Govt. why we could not ban imports from China.Click to go to Deccan Chronicle.com.
"...That country (China) is the reason for all of our problems, and, yet, the government is pursuing good friendly relations. Trade deficit is mounting, while our industries have been destroyed. ..."
"...Why India should not ban Chinese imports? ...".
This is not the first time that Mr. Bhola Singh is showing his courage. We can compare Lok Sabha-outspoken Mr. Bhola Singh to the Kaurava Prince Vikarna, who raised his voice in Kaurava Court, when PanDava Queen Draupadi was dragged and derobed in Dhritaqrashtra's court, after Yudhishthira lost in the deceptive Game of Dice.
We shall take up some golden sayings of Mr. Bhola Singh, reported to have been said by him in Nov. 2015, after the loss of BJP in Bihar Assembly elections. For those who wish to see the full report, here is the link: Click to go to indileak.com. .
"...Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “unparliamentary language” during the election campaign was one of the reasons why the BJP lost the Bihar battle..."
"...Top party leaders including Modi are responsible for it (defeat)...".
"...The BJP was not defeated in Bihar, it committed suicide. ...".
"...During the campaign, local BJP leaders were sidelined and ignored...".
"...There was no logic to raise issues such as beef and that firecrackers would be burst in Pakistan if the BJP loses. All this resulted in our defeat...".
"...party failed to make ‘roti-rozi’ the main campaign issue though it spoke of economic development as its top agenda...".
ybrao-a-donkey's humble comments. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र राय . వైబీరావ్ గాడిద వినమ్ర వాణి. You have every right to differ with me. I respect your right. आपको मेरे मत से भिन्न राय रखने के संपूर्ण हक है। मै उस अधिकार को परिपूर्ण रूप से गौरव देता हुँ. మీకు, మీ భిన్నమైన అభిప్రాయాన్ని కలిగిఉండే సంపూర్ణ హక్కు ఉంది. దానిని ఎంతో నేను గౌరవిస్తాను. However, pl. examine this donkey's views also. परन्तु एस गधे के दृष्टिकोण को भी अनुशीलन कीजिये. కానీ ఈ గాడిద దృష్టికోణాన్ని కూడ ఓర చూపుతో కంటజూడుమీ, క్రీగంట జూడమీ.
For his qualifications (Ph.D.), experience (8 times elected MLA, and former Home Minister of Bihar), Mr. Bhola Singh should have been made the HRD Minister of India. What Ms. Smriti Irani is doing now? Though Duryodhana trusted Karna as his dearest friend, he made Bhishma the Supreme Commander of the Kaurava Forces. But, Mr. Narendra Modi does not seem to know such courtesies. If Ms. Smriti Irani is performing better than Mr. Bhola Singh, we need not grudge. It is not happening.
About Mr. Bhola Singh's comment that we should ban impors from China:
We should do this coolly, without trumpeting.
Mr. Bhola Singh may not get his BJP ticket in 2019.
Shall finish shortly.
