The slip shod manner Vilasrao Deshmukh and his deputy handled the entire episode is still fresh in people's memory. His visit to Taj with his son and another film personality is something that shows his immaturity and utter callousness. This is second time the public is witnessing that he is indispensable for Congress. They need him due to his capacity to attract votes in the region and not because of any other quality. His incompetence and ignorance will catch up with him some day and congress and him both will learn a lesson of their life time.

When you comes down to assess the cause you will find that the voting and non voting public are the real cause.When they have the weapon to cut away such weeds and do not use that weapon and lament what is the use. Vilasrao Deshmuk has handled the pressure of NCP well and broke the Shivsena into 2 and was able to collect huge election fund and for that he was rewarded.

It is not only Mr. Vilasrao Deshmukh but many other POLITICIANS are held in HIGH ESTEEM. Look at former CM of Maharshtra, Rane's track record. A murder case is hanging on his head. Another Minister spends 20 CRORES on his son's Wedding in AP. The Chief Minister also attends this Wedding. Mayawati has amassed CRORES of Rupees. Shouldn't they all be SENT to in JAIL for all this FRAUD. A former Telecom. Minister, Mr. Sukhram's house raided and a vast amount of CASH was recovered. He stated that the MONEY did not belong to HIM. After several years he is sentenced to 3 years but is he in jail right now? Oh the LIST is endless. Should we not RISE UP and PROTEST at this type of BEHAVIOUR i selecting past MINISTERS to PRESENT HIGH Posts in the Central Govt. Last but not the least, Shibu Soren former CM - is also charged for MURDER. He was inducted into the Central Govt. as Cabinet Minister. This is what is INDIAN POLITICS about!!! Jai Ho!!!

Let me answer this question with a joke : Three persons are discussing about their countrys greatness in medicine. The first is a Russian telling about what his nation achieved recently; Russian: we replaced the artificial kidneys instead of original and still those are working fine he is living with that.

The second person, an American is telling about what his nation achieved recently; American: we replaced the artificial heart instead of original and still he is living with that replaced.

The third person, an Indian is telling about his nation's achievement; Indian: we recently replaced the coconut (mindless) instead of original head, still he is living and ruling has one of the cabinet ministers in our nation.

So, this is fun on dirty Indian politics. The issue is not just of a single leader or a single party. More or less they are the same. With several communal aspects emerging all over India, it is certain that its citizens are getting intolerant, and the leaders of t ...more

Even that is better, Sumati- inefficiency! But in the beginning Congress refused to include in the cabinet RAJA, previous IT & Comn, minister. The plea was there are pending corruption inquiries against him with CBI & Vigilance. Ironicaaly, Raja is not only taken in the cabinet, but given the same ministry. Memory is just two days old- none can forget. Attitude is JANTA, WHAT YOU CAN DO!

Dear Sumati,
Politics is a game of number. What the citizens feel is totallt is turned down by the Citizen elected groups.So, rather than blaming any party or any individual, we, the citizens should foresee the things or take a leaf out of the happenings with concrete evidence and ask the canduidate who is contesting that what is the use of selecting you to power when you are making a mess out of it with your party in bringing back the in-efficient/ black listed person back to centre stage!
The day on which every citizen make this, the present system will remain unchanged we go on lodging complain after complain and grumble for long....

Indian political parties are not free from playing at any level. As far as the terror attack are concerned, it is a big mistake in our security. Now a days people are thinking that is if it was 8-10 years back there would have been a riot in mumbai. When india is being attacked, no party shouls take advantage off it. In mumbai terror attack people keep peace envionment. That attitude should be appreciated. I dont understand why Mr. Vilas Rao was terminated for Terror attack. He could not prevent the attack as a CM. he could not prevent attack on non Maratis by MNS also. It is not the short memory of the people but the unity that helpedus from a big riot,. We people will not forget and forgive any attack to India. Wheather it is Indo- Pak war, india- china war, Cargil, Kandahar Hijack drama, mumabi attack, serial bom blast happened all over india.. will not fort by any Indian. Also we cant forget attack from inside.. Jai Hind

Dear friend. In todaysPolitics, we just cant imagine what is happeningNobody cares the previous track record of Honorouable ministers.
A gentleman(?) who was arrested for firing train in metro city railway station was given a post of Honorouable Minister role.
Wife of a wellknown rowdy and who was dead in enclounter was given the post of
Minister of stae for HOME MINISTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who has attended and attedning CBI case for scams is Honourable minister.So We the people have to decide irrespective of political party and Ideaology we shd not select this Gentlemen(!!!!) to even the post of ward councillor.
Minister post is only for mysterious crime back grounded People is reality now a days
This V Desmukh shd not be allowed to take this post becoz he visited the Mumbai Taj with RG Varma-Sad and Insult to Indian democracy
