UPA II turn two:Is it in crisis?

Congress headed by United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government's plan 100 days of reports cards coming to power is in state of shambles with scam and scams spill the beans in their term and inflation is still remains out of control and oil price rise with no plan to control the rise in price.The ugly scene of nexus of corporate and governance confined to administrative strategy.With the scene of daily protests from all parts of the country on questions and matters of growth has put the common man in dire hardship.Development work unable to reach to last man of the nation has given rise to movements of Mao's and Naxal with state protest for finance not adequate has put the balance growth of the nation in jeopardy.Never in the history of parliamentary democracy has lost parliamentary complete session on one pretext or the other and ugly debates that follow puts the nation in shame.

Non-political organization taking benefit of inefficiency of the administration and government is coming out with their involvement in governing the nation.Health and social security with laws for Food Security,education for all,women reservation bill and land acquisition needs look and attention of all political parties.

Central Vigilance Commissioner P. J. Thomas’s appointment to the prime post has too brought stigma to MMS government.International standards infrastructure lacking in our nation has retarded the growth with tourist and important cities lack International structures such airports,high speed train,guides and transports with minimum level of co-operation from the government puts brakes for innovation in field of employment generating business thus revenue loss to the nation.

New CM holding on to the States which are taking part in development of their industries business activities are finding their way for better growth.
UP election next year will help dissect the performance of a government whose Litmus Test for the Congress and will tell its tale of its grip on the nation's governance and policy formation.

What their opponents say about Congress led UPA II,Congress-led UPA-II the "most corrupt" government in the country's history,the BJP said the Central government has not even a single achievement to celebrate the completion of two years in power."The UPA government is going to complete two years in power but it has not even a single achievement to celebrate the occasion," BJP national spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters.He alleged that scams and scandals were coming out to light under regime of the UPA-II and "it will be remembered only for the corruption cases".The BJP spokesperson alleged that the Central government was "protecting" corrupt people."The Congress-led government is neck-deep in corruption.Prices of essential commodities were increasing day by day, he said.
"The PM had assured to control price rise in 100 days of the government. But even after 720 days nothing has been done. There is a disappointment among the people against the government," the BJP leader added.

Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan said today and hoped that Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh would summon courage and wisdom to undertake a midcourse correction.
In a media statement, Dr. JP warned that the country would face a disaster if the UPA continued its lame-duck governance for another three years.Dr. JP said that the volume of corruption witnessed at the highest level during the last two years of UPA II rule seems to be the largest in post- Second World War history. Dithering characterized UPA’s policies in the education and health care sectors. Although it adopted the Right to Education Act and promised higher investments in health care, it has totally failed in delivering on its promises. Policy failures have marked the agriculture sector. Despite excellent monsoons and record harvests, the Government has not liberalized the farm sector, rid the public distribution system of leakages or help farmers improve their incomes.

Dr. JP recalled that UPA II came into office with a stronger mandate and roused great expectations among people. It has merely succeeded in dashing their hopes.

Jill McGivering BBC News said that Attempts by the Indian government to combat poverty are not working, according to the World Bank.The governing coalition spends billions of dollars - more than 2% of its gross domestic product - on helping the poor.But a new World Bank report says aid programmes are beset by corruption, bad administration and under-payments.One report cites grain: only 40% of grain handed out for the poor reaches its intended target. India's coalition government is spending massively on programmes to reduce poverty.

'US to deploy troops if Pak nukes come under threat'

LONDON: US troops will be deployed in Pakistan if the nation's nuclear installations come under threat from terrorists out to avenge the killing of Osama bin Laden, the Sunday Express can reveal on Sunday.The plan, which would be activated without President Asif Ali Zardari's consent, provoked an angry reaction from Pakistan officials last night. Barack Obama would order troops to parachute in to protect key nuclear missile sites. These include the air force's central Sargodha HQ, home base for nuclear-capable F-16 combat aircraft and at least 80 ballistic missiles.

A US source told the Sunday Express: "The plan is green lit and the president has already shown he is wiling to deploy troops in Pakistan if he feels it is important for national security." However, news of the plan has further increased tension between the US and Pakistan with relations already at an all-time low after the Operation Geronimo raid by the US Navy Seal special forces team that killed bin Laden at the house where he had been hiding in Abbottabad, near to a Pakistan military academy.

An angry Pakistani official said: "Pakistan has an elaborate command and control structure and is fully capable of defending its strategic assets under any circumstances and does not need any assistance from any country, including the US, to safeguard its nuclear installations."

The plan reflects growing concern over reprisals for the al-Qaeda terror leader's death. More than 80 people were killed and 140 injured when two Taliban suicide bombers struck at a military academy in the north-western town of Charsadda on Friday.Media Agencies Geo TV

Strauss-Kahn released from jail

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who has been indicted on all seven counts of sexual assault charges, was released from the jail on Saturday, a day after being granted a USD 1 million cash bail.After he left Rikers Island jail in, New York, Strauss-Kahn, 62, was taken to a building with rental apartments in Lower Manhattan where he will live temporarily with his wife Anne Sinclair, a television journalist.

Strauss-Kahn, who was widely expected to run in the 2012 presidential race in France, will have to wear an electronic monitoring device. He will be allowed to leave the house only on medical emergency.

The US media reported that Sinclair had tried to rent an apartment at the posh Bristol Plaza but was turned down once it was discovered that Strauss-Kahn would be living there."It doesn't seem quite right for him to be put here with the rest of us, enjoy our hospitality, after what he's been accused of doing," said Sandra Pohutsky, of San Francisco, who was staying in the Bristol with a friend, The New York Times reported."The discrepancy between Rikers and here is probably very great, and it doesn't seem quite right," she said."I think it's an inconvenience for all of us," a resident, Michele Smith, said.

Strauss-Kahn was granted a USD I million bail yesterday after he was formally indicted on all seven counts of sexually assaulting a chambermaid at Sofitel hotel in Manhattan.The former IMF chief was also asked to pay an additional bond of USD 5 million.He will also shell out 200,000 for armed guards.Strauss-Kahn, who has claimed innocence, was locked up in a New York prison since last week, when he was bundled out of a Paris-bound flight and taken into custody on charges of sexually assaulting the maid.Strauss-Kahn has been charged with a criminal sex act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment.He allegedly forced the maid, who is a native of Guinea, to perform oral sex and submit to anal sex.Meanwhile, on Friday, a law enforcement official reportedly said at least two other Sofitel employees told investigators that Strauss-Kahn made advances toward them during his stay.
