With the attack on Jaya Prakahs narayana by TRS MLAs and remebering some of the other cases in the recent past, the Question that comes to my mind is “How much value intellectuals have in India?”
The personal attack on JP brought the Indian legislature system to shame. If a law maker is attacked on personal prejudice by some so called “Telangana Protogonaists” what is the status of common man on the road? Well, they have their own side of the story for the attack, can’t the persons even open the mouths to express their opinion. This is very sad situation that stoping and attacking respected Governor and respected MLA. Most of the people are not yet realizing the responsibility towards their duties and towards the growth of the country as a whole.
When Metro man E Sreedharan suggested that a “big political scandal” was brewing in the Hyderabad Metro project, then the Andhra Pradesh government lead by YSR threatened him with defamation. But, with Satyam chairman Ramalinga Raju confessing to defrauding his own company of over Rs 7,000 crore and accepting the charge that the aborted buyout of Maytas was also part of this fraud, Sreedharan’s apprehensions has been justified. Ultimately govt couldnt do any thing as every aspect pointed out by Sreedharan was found to be valid. His views have been vindicated with the fall of Satyam.
Honest persons are seldom are respected by top officials and political leaders who are not interested in national welfare as much as it suits their persoal interest or pleasing higher ups.
