“Modi ji You spend Rs. 200 crores on ads, but you don’t have money to pay minimum wages to workers”

4

Modi ji,

The country won’t change by changing the meat or the video. The nation will be transformed when the condition of its people are improved.

Under your regime, things have only gone from bad to worse. Youth and students elected you with high hopes. The poor and disposed chose you because you promised to solve their problems and remove their hurdles to progress.

Had you delivered development in the last two years, you would not have to spend crores of rupees to advertise it.

The apparent reality is that you have done nothing to improve our lives. I question you here as a student. You spend Rs. 200 crores on advertisements, but you don’t have Rs. 99 crores for non-NET scholarships for the research scholars.

You have thousands of crore of rupees to buy battle tanks, but you don’t have money to pay minimum wages to workers?

You have thousands of crores of rupees for air trips but you can’t give farmers fair minimum support prices for their crop?

Modi ji, to say the least, you are the Prime Minister of this country but your policies seem like a series of misfortune for the common masses.

Brilliant students are forced to hang themselves from fans. Or else they are raped and/or murdered. And if by some miracle they manage to save themselves from such vile acts then their fellowships are stopped in order to deter them from pursuing higher studies.

Now, We stand face to face with you. I use the word ‘We’ not just for students, but for all those, among our 125 crore fellow citizens, who don’t have the means to improve their lives. No new jobs have been created; farmers are killing themselves in desperation and terror of moneylenders; the poor are increasingly becoming poorer; students can’t afford to study, those who do make it to the various universities face caste-based humiliation and discrimination.

Brilliant students are forced to hang themselves from fans. Or else they are raped and/or murdered. And if by some miracle they manage to save themselves from such vile acts then their fellowships are stopped in order to deter them from pursuing higher studies.

Even the constitutional rights of the reserved classes which were granted to ensure their development are being questioned. Not just students, even the basic rights of teachers and workers have been targeted so much so that they have been forced to come out on the streets and protest against the system.

I remember that one of the taglines of your election campaign said – ”Bahut hui mahangai ki maar, Abki baar Modi Sarkar’’. But now you don’t utter a single word on the issue of price rise and inflation in the Indian economy. You mocked Manmohan Singh for his silence

News flashes concerning the arrest of students and teachers protesting to safeguard their rights are becoming a common reality. It seems that a situation of emergency has been created in every university.

Is this the situation that you were promising when you were chanting the slogans of “Achche Din” across the length and breadth of the nation?

You have handed the reins of our temples of learning into the hands of those who are not just averse to knowledge, but also determined and proven opponents of history, art, culture and logic.

It is obvious that you are returning the favors of those who financially paved your assent to power. But remember Modi ji, we also survive on the funds of the impoverished working classes—the people who contributed their hard earned wages as taxes to run this country. We are indebted to those hard working people.

We have been brought up on their hard earned money, and we are true to their salt. You may have repaid your creditors, we will also repay our generous citizens. The next generation will certainly ask you why you were silent when one of your ministers was spreading hatred against a particular community.

You will be asked why you were silent when another one of your ministers was framing false cases on students on the basis of fake tweets. Why were you silent when meat samples were switched and communal venom was being spread. The main question is– whether you have been elected to bring development or to strengthen those who spread hatred and violence?

I remember that one of the taglines of your election campaign said – ”Bahut hui mahangai ki maar, Abki baar Modi Sarkar’’. But now you don’t utter a single word on the issue of price rise and inflation in the Indian economy. You mocked Manmohan Singh for his silence.

But neither do you speak for us. And when you do speak, it is not for the impoverished masses of this country, but for America, where lawmakers give you a standing ovation. When you speak, it is in favour of ‘corporate loot’.

You don’t speak on the issue of starvation; you don’t speak on the issue of exploitation and discrimination against the Dalits and minorities; you don’t speak a word when farmers commit suicide; you don’t speak a word on the issues concerning students. You are silent about our issues; but remember, this silence won’t last. Your silence will be broken soon. The silence of the people is already breaking down. Do what you may with our varsities.

But remember, if you don’t keep your election promises, then whether this country changes or not, the government will certainly change. You had said that toilets are more important than temples in this country. You had talked about development, employment and education.

But this was just talk; words, that you don’t value. Please stop playing around with words, stop playing around with empty rhetoric and try to make a real effort to work for the masses of the country. This is our polite appeal to you.

Yours,
Kanhaiya Kumar
