ACHUTHANANDAN’S REMARKS — My Last Post on this issue

Posted on: December 7, 2008

I wasn’t interested in continuing to write against the controversial remarks by Kerala CM VS Achuthanandan. But Few Responses to my previous posts and few comments  by the VS supporters prompted me to write about this issue again.

First of all let me make it clear i’m not an anti VS  supporter. i supports  him for his initiative in the action against real estate mafia, and other actions he has initiated in his run as CM of kerala.

My only concern is focused on Kerala CM’s attitude and words he use following mumbai terror attacks.

let me pin point it out.

1) Political secretary of Kerala CM went for the Funeral of Sandeep Unnikrishnan. But did the Political secretary or anybody try to speek it out till VS made his controversial remark.??

2) Kerala Media Complained that the kerala Govt ignored Sandeeps unnikrishanan.  wasnt it true?  VS and Kodiyeri was at party meeting and as described in a polpular malayalam daily another minister was busy inagurating tourist boat.  I didnt hear any statement from the part of govt or CM expressing their condolence officialy to martyrs family.

3) Mr Unnikrishnan Had made it clear he dont want to see any politicians and he didnt even attend call from Indian defence minister. So was it necassery for the  CM tro visit sandeeps house on his way back fromthe party meeting.?

4)  Wasn’t it possible for CM to make a statement to press   and express his condolence to Martyr even between the party meeting? it sounds ridiculious to go to a martyr’s house to express condolence  3 days after the death and i day after the funeral.

5) I’m not arguing that unnikrishnan’s actions were right. He wasnt right. At the same time his reaction could be seen as a reaction from a father who has lost his only son  and the  initial ignorance from Kerala Govt mighthave made him say that.

6) Now to the controversial remark by CM.  the reporter did ask whats the comments about unnikrishnanas words.  But was it appropriate for the CM to say what he said.

The media later reported that some family member of the martyr saying “reply by the chief minister as quite natural and pointed out that there would have been no controversy had such a question not been raised”.

quite natural !!!!  My question is–> Is it appropriate for a Chief Minister To reply in a non dignified manner ??

And  about the journalist who asked the question… what is wrong in the question?  the question was a simple one.  CM could have ignored the question or could have replied using some better words.  but he stick to the words that hurts any dignified man or family in the country

7) No regarding his reactions later. He said he wont say sorry and he never did. One o my previous Posts (Atlast he said sorry) wad based on the media reports which said he said sorry. But later when i reviewd his press conference remarks i found that he never said sorry.  he just expressed his regret on the issue.

8 ) Is regret and sorry the same. ?   i havnt learnt so.  I still demand VS should say sorry rather than just expresing his regret.  Or else in future  we might have to see similar or worse remarks from politicians or others and we will have to see them escaping without saying sorry.

9) Is it sandeeps family alone who should say they have forgiven kerala CM.??

NO. sandeeps didnt die for his family he died for the entire country. i belive it is the country which has to forgive Achuthanandan and not Sandeeps family alone. But the Media found it interesting in defining the issue with just sandeeps family on the scene.

Well here are the answers you might not need:

1. What is the purpose of speaking it out? Do we need to show up before everyone that we have done this. Is it doing that unless we have a controversy around? But I am not saying that Mr. Political Secretary was right, he might have had the same intention as everyone in the opposite team.

2. You can not say all media’s in Kerala…in fact they were the one who wanted this issue to be a controversial one. Would you have praised Mr. CM if he had expressed his condolences officially? Yes, we always have a hankering towards picking up the bad things out of a person.

3. Mr. Unnikrishnan might have been just showing up his anger (I don’t know why) of a father. But Sandeep was a soldier, he died for his country. So any Indian can go there and consolidate the family at any time without any permission. I guess that is the right of any Indian.

There were a lot of people who were complaining what the CM had done was not correct. Why didn’t anyone from this group go there to take part in Sandeep’s funeral?

4. Were you in a position of a political leader ever before to say this? Do you think that being a CM of a state, is a very silly thing? Was it not appropriate that CM sent his PS to martyrs family to let them know that he’d be visiting them in the coming days? Which is better, is it calling a press meet to let everyone know that we have done our duty by consolidating the family of the victim, or is it sending someone close directly to the victims home and letting them know about the difficulty to make in at the right time?

If Mr. Unnikrishnan knew that he could not afford to loose his son’s life for the country, he should not have dared to let his son to have a military life.

The very next day the issue had happened, Kerala Govt. decided to give Sandeep’s family a sum of Rs. 150,000. Why not Mr. Unnikrishnan refused the offer?

5. Is it the right way to show the pain, a father of a Major has. Why did he allow other political leaders to take part in his son’s funeral?

6. No, it is not the appropriate way for a chief minister to answer that question. But my dear friend, try to analyze his answer. If he called somebody a dog, he was referring to himself. Think about it. It makes no sense saying he could have avoided answering this question. Why don’t you say that that media person could have avoided asking this question?

7. Friend, you reviewed his remarks desperately to know that if the CM had said sorry… Why don’t you try to review the motive of the person who asked the question before you went out writing this?

8. Will you say sorry for anything happened from you and that is still correct to your mind?

9. No, Sandeeps family should not forgive the CM unless and until CM has done some bad things. He didn’t insult the father of a normal man Sandeep. He was trying to say that it should never have happened from the father of Major Sandeep.

I can’t understand something, if we are doing something bad, the media will find it out and will make it public before everyone. Who should be there to point out the mistakes of the media?

I have some questions to put forward before you. But I am not doing it since I think that I already know what your answers will be. Dude, by doing so you are not only helping some bloody people who try to improve their business out of it but also letting ourself down before everyone. Think man… think well before you are going on with the arguments for this comment.

സുഹൃത്തെ …
താങ്കളുടെ ആശയങ്ങള്‍ വായിച്ചു. പക്ഷെ കാര്യങ്ങള്‍ പൂര്‍ണ്ണമായി മനസ്സിലാക്കിയിട്ടില്ല എന്നു തോന്നുന്നു.
മുഖ്യമന്ത്രിയുടെ പൊളിറ്റിക്കല്‍ സെക്രട്ടറി ചടങ്ങില്‍ പങ്കെടുത്തു,പക്ഷെ എന്തിനാണ് കൂട്ടുകാരാ അത് മാധ്യമങ്ങള്‍ക്കു മുമ്പില്‍ വിളിച്ചുപറയുന്നു ? മറ്റൊന്ന് ചടങ്ങു നടന്ന അന്ന് തന്നെ മുഖ്യമന്ത്രി ഉണ്ണികൃഷ്ണനെ ഫോണില്‍ ബന്ധപ്പെട്ടിരുന്നു അന്ന് അദ്ദേഹം സൌഹാര്‍ദ്ദപരമായാണ് സംസാരിച്ചത്. ഒരു വ്യക്തിയുടെ ഏക മകന്‍ നഷ്ടപ്പെട്ട ദുഖം നമുക്ക് മനസ്സിലാക്കാം,അദ്ദേഹം വീരമൃത്യു തന്നെയാണ് തിരഞ്ഞെടുത്തത്. ഒരു മകന്‍ നഷ്ടപ്പെട്ടതില്‍ ഉള്ള സങ്കടമാണോ വലുത് പങ്കെടക്കാത്ത മന്ത്രിമാരെ ചൊല്ലിയുള്ള വേദനയാണോ ? ഇതെല്ലാം വി.എസ്. എന്ന വ്യക്തിയുടെ രാഷ്ട്രീയ ഭാവി തകര്‍ക്കാനുള്ള കെട്ട്മാറാപ്പു മാത്രമാണ്. അതിനു പുട്ടിനു പീര പോലെ കാരാട്ടും,പിണറായിയും. മാധ്യമങ്ങള്‍ യൂറോപ്പിലെ പോലെ പപ്പരാസികള്‍ ആയി മാറിക്കൊണ്ടിരിക്കുകയാണ്. ചോര കിട്ടല്ല എന്നു വ്യക്തമായപ്പോള്‍ തന്നെ ആ ചെന്നായ്ക്കൂട്ടം മറ്റ് ഇരകളെ തേടി പൊയ്ക്കഴിഞ്ഞു. വി. എസ് ആണ് ശരി.
ഉണ്ണികൃഷ്ണന്‍ അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ പ്രായത്തെയും,സ്ഥാനത്തെയും ബഹുമാനിക്കേണ്ടതായിരുന്നു. വി.എസ് ടൈംസ് ലേഖകനാണ് മറുപടി പറഞ്ഞത്, സന്ദീപിന്റെ മാതാപിതാക്കളോടല്ല.

We are helping underprivileged children by providing them quality education since 2001 in Bangalore.We think that these children should get exposure to patriotic thoughts and should learn about our heroes.
Can it be possible for us to go to Major Sandeep’s house with some of these children to pay our tribute.If yes,then can it be possible for you to give his residential address to me?
Thanks & regards
