Safe India ???

18 - that is the age when we are eligible to vote in INDIA. Now the question arises why should we vote? Why it is necessary to elect a political party to form the so-called Government which vows to act as the father figure of the country? Being in that position what has the government provided us with? The government cannot even give us the basic protection; forget about a better life, an improved economy. Every time a terrorist attack happens, waves of fury blow throughout the country; allegations, counter allegations take place. Political figures visit the sites, giving assurances that such things would not happen again. News channels host several shows discussing the issue. But what happens ultimately?  After some days we forget and move on with our regular life. All the assurances are dumped in the trash bin. And the leaders move on with their high profile life.

Do we realise that every time a terrorist attack take place, it is the common people who are dying. If we have to die like this every other day, then why vote for such WORTHLESS government? Why vote and make those leaders enjoy a high profile life for five years?

If the government cannot take the responsibility why doesn’t it step down? It does not even learn from the tragedies. The coastal areas have not been secured even today after the tragic 26/11. In the news channels they come up with the words that things will be settled down soon. When questioned they say,” one cannot opt for ‘Bullet for Bullet' policy. We need to strategise. India is a diverse country and the government cannot suddenly provide security to every citizen overnight.”  Who asked them to give security overnight? What were they doing in the last 63 years? 

We want a SOLUTION to this. We are fed up with the assurances, political allegations and every other thing they come up with after such an incident. We don’t want to listen to anything. All we want to see is that people can walk safely in the streets. That fathers don’t have to warn their children not to use the Metro Railway or visit a Mall on 26th of January.  All that we ask for is a SAFE INDIA.
