There needs to be a constitutional amendment banning the "Communists".
I agree. The "communists" need a ban because the moment they come to power with a majority they will suspend democracy for good. Yeah, sure, they will call it the peoples democracy or some such lunatic phrase but "democracy" as we know it will be gone. The minimum pledge these jokers need to make is under no circumstance will they ever suspend democracy, which they will never make. I don't know whether there can be a trace established to their sources of funding (should inevitably lead to China) besides man-handling ordinary folks for the Durga Puja donation scam.
Meanwhile ...Indo-US deal cannot be renegotiated: Indian Americans
Leaders of Indian-American community expressing concerns over the stand taken by the political parties in India on the Indo-US civil nuclear said the deal cannot be renegotiated as it may not get approved by the US Congress or the next President cannot get it passed as the chances are virtually zero.
"Parties opposing it are placing their political interest over national interest. If this Bill comes back for any reason, the present Congress or the next President cannot get it passed as the chances are virtually zero," chairman of the US-India Political Forum Ashok Mago.
Terming Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as a man of integrity, Mago said, "For any one to think for a second that Prime Minster Manmohan Singh will agree to sign an agreement which is not in the national interest of India should be unthinkable.
Mago, expressing his surprise over the late reaction of the parties on the deal said, "why political parties in India waited this long to oppose it now so strongly as to want to kill it, when everyone knew the terms of the Hyde Act."
"This bill should be looked as an energy bill to provide India the clean energy it desperately needs to keep up with the pace of its economic growth," he said.
Found this on Japan' Abe impending Kolkata visit:
The Left has looked askance at India developing a strategic and security partnership with Japan. But Abe has also planned a visit to Kolkata where he is expected to unfold an economic agenda that is bound to disarm the Buddhadeb government. In any case Japan's Mitsubishi Chemicals is believed to be the most successful foreign investment in Bengal, and Abe would certainly like to use that as a model for the India-Japan partnership as a whole. Abe will visit Netaji Bhavan, pay homage to Rabindranath Tagore and inaugurate a new Japanese cultural centre at Kolkata. The Japanese have an old link with Bengal: they are grateful for the role played by Justice Radha Binodbihari Pal in helping the country emerge with its honour intact after the Second World War. Abe is likely to convey Japan's gratitude to the Kolkatans.
Hope the Japanese send a clear message to the CPI&M goons as to where their butter is coming from and to shape up on the India-Japan alliance ergo against China.
