A matter of great concern!

Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s towering 18-feet bronze statue in the Parliament looked lonely today, with just one MP turning up to pay floral tributes at it on the occasion of Martyrs’ Day. The Parliament gave them a miss. No official commemoration of the same was held and no intimation published in the bulletin for parliamentarians.And all this happened on the day when Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh, lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, BJP leader L K Adwani, Sushma Swaraj visited the parliament house to pay homage to Mr Ram Manohar Lohia on his birth anniversary. On Lohia's portrait which hangs in the same place where on 8th April 1929 Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt threw bomb to make deaf Britishers listen to their demand of complete independence (pooran sawaraj), the visiting dignitaries offered flowers to Lohia's portrait while the Bhagat singh's statue just yards away got flowers from only one dignitary visitor our Sports Minister Mr. M S Gill. This is a matter of great concern and shame that our leaders has forgotten the heroes of our history who kissed the gallows with ease and our leaders today are just money and power hungry. Do they really deserve to be our leaders? Have we got the right group of people to take India forward? Are we represented by the right people.
