    Indian political scennario is stormy nowadays.
    1.The communists and other left parties have withdrawn support from the UPA led quallition government on the issue of nuclear agreement with USA. The left has 59 MPs.
    2.The minority government is supported by the Samajwadi party which has 39 MPs.
    3.There is hue and cry that Samajwadi party is lobbying for Anil Ambani of Relliance.
    4. The Govt has to prove its majority on the floor of Loksabha.
    5.The Prime Minister went to G8 summit and come back.
    6. The Govt. moved to IAEA to clear the atomic deal with USA.
    7.According to opposition parties the Govt has no legitimate right to go there.

    Every time a coalition party withdraws support, and every time some unusual thing happens, the Govt. need not resign. Is there any other alternative ready to take over at the central government at this time?  Without a credible alternative, nothing should be done, which will affect every aspect of people's life. If the present government has no legitimacy, then any other party has legitimacy?

    What does Jyothi Kothari wish to say ?
    1. It is better to keep away from Communists, who were giving continuous trouble to the Government.  They would have become happy if the same agreement was done with China.
    2. How can a government be called "minority" when more than half of the MPs supported it. Constitution does not say which party members should support the government and who oppose it. It is only a number game.
    3. Anil Ambani's Reliance is not a foreign company and Ambani is not a foreigner. They may approach the Govt. for some tasks, through the MPs.
    4. Govt. should always prove its majority in the house whenever a party withdraws support.
    5. Is there any ban on the PM not to go to G8 summit?
    6. It is only a formality.
    7.The opposition parties have no legitimate right to restrict the movement of a legitimate government.

    These are not storms for Indian politics.

    May be. No wrong in reviving a 4 month-old message... I joined HP last month and saw this messages only now.  Indian politics is being hijacked since a long time back.  One politician speaks of awarding the highest honour to a person who desecrated the statue of the father of our Nation, a few years ago.  Another politician sabotaged the industrialisation of a whole state, by staging dharnas and leading protest marches,  just for 400 acres owned by a handful of farmers. Another politician stood witness to the demolition of a national monument and shouted "just one more pull".  One more politician speaks of workers being harassed by the present government while her/his government dismissed thousands and thousands of workers and employees during his/her rule.  No one to question them. Indian politics is really being hijacked.
