Another Home for Home Minister?

The internal security situation of the country is continuing to deteriorate.

aiming in the dark - at no one

Apart from the rising incidents of blasts in various cities across the country, the J&K situation also continues to boil due to a completely insensitive approach and the absence of any serious attempt on the part of the Govt. to bring peace to the troubled State where conditions are going from bad to worse.

One of the clear options before the Prime Minister, if at all he is half as serious about the internal security as about the Nuclear Deal, is to find another home for the present Home Minister. He is one of the three Ministers for whom the Prime Minister needs to find suitable positions urgently as suggested earlier.

This single action by the Prime Minister will show to the country that he is indeed serious about preventing a further downhill slide.

And incidentally, it will also show that he is capable of taking action in respect of a Minister who happens to be in the good books of his party boss.


The ruling of the Tribunal of the Delhi High Court on 5th August 2008, in the SIMI matter that the Govt. had failed to provide sufficient evidence to justify the continued curbs on this known fundamentalist group is yet another indication that the Ministry of Home Affairs cannot be relied upon to ensure the safety and security of the people of the country and that anti-national elements will continue to have a free run to do what they please to tear the fabric of the country apart.

सारे जहाँ से अच्छा, हिंदोस्ताँ हमारा
