Dear Readers,

Greetings for the Vaisakhi!!!

Vaisakhi, also known as Baisakhi is a historical and harvest festival in Sikhism and Hinduism. This harvest celebration takes place annually and harvesters celebrate and rejoice about the New Year and the harvested crops. Vaisakhi has special significance for Sikhs as on this day in 1699, their tenth Guru Gobind Singh Ji organized the order of the Khalsa. It is regionally known by many names, like Bihu in Assam, Pongal in Tamil Nadu and New Year in other parts of the country.

The country is shocked to see the leakage of CBSE paper. The Education system supposed to promote responsibility and help develop a responsible Society. The leakage of CBSE Examination Papers from the CBSE Examination conducting offices was unthinkable earlier. Today, it sees the Governance of Education System has been too irresponsible not to develop adequate checks and control systems to ensure a leak proof examination. In the past the central board was considered more respectable and free from leakage. Now, CBSE has lost that respect. But this is happening at a time, when all the opposition parties are ganging against the ruling party and the PM Modi. They are busy trying to use every opportunity including CBSE exam paper leakage or the alleged "dilution of SC/STs (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989 to create noise even at the cost of the nation for defaming BJP and PM Modi. They have called for Bharat bandh on Dalit Issue, even if, it is the act of Supreme court not the Govt. of India. It is an irresponsible act of the opposition parties, but it is said that "everything is fair in love and war ". The political war is on. Like 2014, the unprecedented political history created by BJP & Narendra Modi, 2019 is expected to be an unprecedented political fight, where all political parties are trying to unite against BJP and PM Modi, to block him from winning again.

Though, there are too many cracks in opposition groups, starting with Bengal CM, Mamta Banarjee not accepting Rahul Gandhi the party President and meeting Sonia Gandhi. Congress is the oldest political party which ruled India for most part of independent India stands isolated today, making opposition groups confused with too many tall leaders aspiring to be PM, but not a single one is tall enough to be accepted by all other leaders as the PM. This is the biggest problem of the opposition groups; the killing of unprecedented number of terrorists in Kashmir valley has unnerved Pakistan who never saw such failures of its Anti India Strategy, the surgical strikes or the gunning down of terrorists by Indian Army. Pakistan is shamelessly expressing its desire to support the anti Modi, Anti BJP Forces in India. The Congress weakness for Pakistan is well known. The Shameless utterances of a veteran Congress leader, Mani Shankar Aiyar in Pakistan may be remembered, when he invited the support from Pakistan to help Modi be out of power in Delhi.

Modi magic is obviously bothering all enemies of India, be it the Pakistan or political parties, who care for themselves more than the country.

These developments make 2019 Elections historic, and the preparations have already started almost by all the political Parties.

Let’s pray God, this Election Gives a Result, which is good for India and help India emerge as a superpower in the highly competitive international political scenario, which is going through a process of regrouping in front of a possible third world war. Indian voters have a huge responsibility to vote responsibly.
