An Open letter to my Country Men
Oppose the Opposition: Come what may! The Nuclear Deal should be done!!
We do not have to listen to Prakash Karat. We do not have to listen to L. K. Advani. The documents are there, guiding the Nuclear Deal.
We, the people of Indian Republic, can take our own decisions.
Here is the list of the documents
1. The 123 Agreement- http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2007/aug/90050.htm
2. The Safeguards -http://www.dae.gov.in/press/IaeaIndiaSGADrft.pdf
The Hyde Act - http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=109_cong_bills&docid=f:h5682enr.txt.pdf
It is funny to think, that somebody can even question our sovereignty .We have crossed those days of 1960 – 1970’s, when we are weak. The world says that we are one of the four great economic powers. We are as par with European Union, China and US .
Hyde act is something, which is internal regulation of US, and has nothing to do with us .The US parliament can wish, that, we will support them on their foreign policy. There can be an expectation, on this line, by Condoleezza Rice. However, we have not committed something on it. There is no obligation, that, we have, to follow them. Infact, there is an advantage. In earlier case, whenever we have done a nuclear test, we have faced bans in our sanctions. After signing the deal, we will not face a ban straight away. We will have opportunities to discuss and do diplomatic exercise, which if we do properly, we can avoid the banning altogether.
The Nuclear Deal is one of the greatest successes of Indian Foreign Policy after the dramatic shift in foreign policy, due to disintegration of Soviet Union. We are getting the Nuclear Fuel without signing a NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty). We are free to do our strategic nuclear program. Our civil nuclear program would be different from that. This is itself, a sign that India is a powerful country now, who is dictating its own terms. The question of sovereignty is useless and a more emotional question, than a practical one.
The Nuclear Energy would be a great help to our economic prosperity as the other energy sources goes down. If, we can import coal and oil ! Why cannot we import Uranium? In addition, this is just for transition period. This will not be a barrier on becoming ourselves self-sufficient. We can stop importing once we become self-sufficient.
This is one of the greatest achievements until date by our diplomats. Our neighboring countries are jealous about our clinching such a deal. Nothing, like this is going to happen in next 30 years. That’s why …Oppose the Opposition: Come what may !! The Nuclear Deal should be done !!
Who am I, to tell you all this? I, am just a citizen of India, like you. I, want my India, to grow and become more prosperous. I want, that we have adequate power, in all forms, that we can move in our path of progress smoothly.
Some politicians do not want so. They are ready to comprise the interest of the Nation, for there own parties agenda. Let us remind them, that a Nation interest is bigger, then the political parties. The progress of the nation makes them survive and become powerful. These people forget that, we have put them into power to take decision on the interest of the nation. They are just our representatives. In a representative democracy, if they do not work for the interest of the nation, we have the right to throw them out from power. Today, in the age of cyber-democracy, we do not have to wait for that, up to next election. We can do it right now.
We have done it repeatedly. We have done it in the time of French revolution. We have done it on the time of our own independence.
It is the time to do it again, for our energy Independence.
We have to oppose the opposition, to vote against the Nuclear Deal.
Oppose the Opposition: Come what may !! The Nuclear Deal should be done !!
We will use new system, new process to do that. Yes! We will use the tools of cyber-democracy, as every age has its own way to practice, democracy.
French revolution did it in a violent way, Indians in Independence movement, did it in a non-violent way.
Representing, technologically rich India, we will do it in a cyber way.
We will vote for the nuclear deal, using the following blog, where we have the voting panel in the right corner.
That result of this vote will be automatically available to all the people after voting. We will then circulate it, to as many people we know, to make sure that the opposition leader gets our message. This will make them; think twice before voting against the nuclear deal.
It is a simple process. We all can participate in it. We can also circulate this mail, that there is more voting supporting on our resolution to -
Oppose the Opposition: Come what may ! The Nuclear Deal should be done!
