========================================

As a true citizen of this country, you should share this information with ALL NOW, only few days remaining for voting!

Vote 4 Change!

[Corroborated by credible sources – Indian Express, Economic Times, IBN 7, Wikipedia, Official Government websites, etc. For email clients that do not support embedded links, please check the bottom of the email – we have all the links for you.]

1) Is common Indian on the street really safe?

a) Check this shocking video clip from IBN 7: Become a terrorist and get paid by the Indian Government.

b) Taliban is not just at our doorsteps, it has infiltrated into Kashmir [news article]. Is the present Govt really concerned about the security of the nation?

c) Every major city in India has been attacked consistently over the last two years. In the last five years, 3850 Indians have died in Terror attacks [news article] in over 3000 incidents [stats from Wikipedia]. In 2008 alone, 12 major terror attacks have rocked the country.

2) What is the present government doing with all our money?

a) As revealed in 2008, Rs 70 lakh crores of money from India is lying in swiss bank accounts [news article]. Even though the German government is ready to reveal the details of account holders, the government is least bothered to ask for it.

b) On the day of Mumbai train blasts, the present government gave Rs 150 crore for earthquake-relief in Pakistan. In 2008, the government has given Rs 3000 crores to Afghanistan for Infrastructure development. Developing our own country’s infrastructure did not cross our governments mind!

c) Rs 87153.12 crores missing [Official website of Comptroller and Auditor General of India] from Universal service funds, infrastructure development fund and money allocated for centrally sponsored scheme.

d) In the Rs 10000 crores, medium-range surface-to-air missile (MR SAM) deal with Israel, the government has suspiciously agreed to pay 6% [news article] as “business charges” which comes to whooping Rs 600 crores. According to defence experts, this is simply inflated and illegitimate.

3) Is this Government really secular?

a) When Madrasas are being shut down in Pakistan, the Indian Government is giving them CBSE status [news article]!! Is it not discouraging Muslim children in getting secular education?

b) Andhra Pradesh government under the direction from central government has closed down 28000 temples out of 36000 temples in last 5 years.

c) Our Government has given 25 lakh scholarships ONLY to minority students [news article]. What sin have the majority done not to deserve these? Why cannot poor students of all communities be given scholarships instead of only Muslim children?

4) Is this Government really pro-poor?

a) The number of people living below the poverty line has increased by a horrifying 20 per cent. India had some 270 million people below the poverty line in 2004-2005, when the present Government took office. That number has gone up to 325 million, which is 20 per cent increase.

Do you want the same government to continue?

The time for politically correct statements is past.

We have just a handful of days before we cast our precious vote. Let’s vote for change!!

[Your immediate participation needed! Just hit the forward button my friend. And no kidding, this time you would’ve done service to your nation]
