//Endemic protests could lead to flirting with chaos //
: Pranab Mukarjee - The president of India.
Mincing no words in underlining the dangers in undermining institutions like Parliament, he said legislation cannot be wrenched away from legislature or justice from judiciary.
He described Parliament as "the soul of the people, the 'Atma' of India".
The President's comments against the backdrop of anti-corruption protests of Anna Hazare and Ramdev came in his maiden address to the nation on the eve of 66th Independence Day.
In a speech that covered India's emergence as a stable democracy and its economic growth post-Independence, the new President also warned that if progress fell behind rising aspirations of the youth "rage will manifest".
Earlier last month in his acceptance speech after his election to the post, Mukherjee had said that trickledown theories do not address the legitimate aspirations of the poor.
In today's address, he said if Indian economy has achieved critical mass, then it must become a launching pad for the next leap. "We need a second freedom struggle; this time to ensure that India is free for ever from hunger, disease and poverty."
Pranab Mukherjee even after being the President of India, you are still towing the Italian waitress's line. Don't behave like a poodle like MMS, and stand up. Anna and Ramdev's protests are being carried out with public support against UPA corruption and plunder. Instead of facing the charges, UPA is using police and CBI to suppress the facts, and fool the people of the country.
Head comes down between both legs on reading these words of his speech. Mr President you made us to feel ashamed of you. Till now no President has delivered such a party based address to nation. You were to address to the nation and not to Baba and Anna. Now it is very clear that up to Mr Kalam all was fine and there after from Pratibha it would be all reversed.
Sonia Gandhi has planted these incompetent and shameless puppets in two most powerful posts of our country,PM & President, so that she remains the Queen with ultimate power.If at all India ever needed a freedom,it is now & from these Congressi's.15th August should be treated as a slavery day for Indians instead of independence day as sice then, Congress is treating the ordinary citizens of India as slaves and unabashedly looting the country!
We know that Parliament is supreme. All actions taken by Parliament has taken to date has not ended corruption. In today's India corruption is rampant and it involves parliamentarians and senior statesmen of the country. People are confused and are taking to streets because it is hurting them. People with black money are enjoying and rich whereas most people with white money are struggling to make ends meet. It is very difficult to stop anti corruption movement. People will use their power and so congress can use their power to support corruption. Next elections will answer by selecting right people in the parliament. Concerned citizen.

Why no words on ELECTORAL REFORMS(Right to Reject and Recall of elected legislative members) ,Lokpal , Policy reforms etc ... plz understand pulse of people ..we don't want speeches and vote politics .. we need solutions ...
