Omnishambles

For those who all wondering what the title means, let me first tell that this is the “word of the year” chosen by Oxford Dictionary considering the the current situation in Britain. Oxford University Press on Tuesday crowned the word – defined as “a situation that has been comprehensively mismanaged, characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations” – its top term of 2012.

I find it amazing the word fits perfectly to situation in my country. Take example of UPA govt. in India.The govt has been battling issues of corruption since almost 1 year.The fight against corruption started with anna hazare in the lead has taken a whole new dimension with Kejriwal’s political outfit.And to make things worse,Congress always keeps mum.Is the party in omnishambles?

Totally mismanaged,everything and anything that party does is subject of severe scrutiny and criticism.Talking about blunders and miscalculations,there’s no better example than Mr.Rahul Gandhi who comes once in a blue moon with strange facts and controversies.

 “We were also in the Opposition. Then the Kargil war happened. We were all together. Congress stands together in the interest of the country whether we are in government or not. “- Rahul Gandhi

The congress has perfected the art of drawing criticism upon itself.Wrong speech made at the wrong time. We’ve had many shambles this year,the last being “Sandy” and “Neelam”.  However I feel “Omnishambles” could be often used in political terms.I am not anti congress and these are just my thoughts.Long live “Omnishambles”.

ImageWith almost 2 lakh people around, it’s nice to see Congress in agressive mode. batting like sehwag. fearless against opposition. doing their stipulated work. good luck to them if they remain in the same mode and do some constructive work for the common man.

This is written over my fury over the wild allegations by the IAC and specifically the damage that it creates to India Inc in the international scene. Mr.Kejriwal & the IAC have come out with stunning exposes over the last two months starting from that of Sonia Gandhi’s son in law, Robert Vadra to BJP president, Nitin Gadkari. Between they also made a pathetic attempt to expose Salman Khurshid, Foreign Affairs Minister for alleged misuse of funds, which in my opinion was hardly based on any evidence provided by the IAC.

The whole issue of Salman Khurshid was bought out by the India Today news team and I don’t understand what role the IAC played other than attacking Mr. Khurshid personally. It seems that IAC is using issues that were in the public domain for a while for its political standoff against the BJP and Congress. IAC, which started off as a noble idea against corruption in the political system is now a political party. I wouldn’t be surprised if they make such sweeping allegations against the ruling party and the main opposition.IAC is critical of the political system in India, the judiciary and the people who voted Congress into power.
