A new political culture in Tamil NaduWhen one of the best economists in the world, Dr ManMohan Singh, wrote a letter to the PM, his health minister wrote back a horrible reply, defending all the blunders made and virtually blaming the opposition. It is another story that within the next few days, the Union Govt did only most of the things suggested by the ex-PM.
However, it does not make any sense to keep on shifting the blame on others and talk about "positivity". Here is the fabulous example of one of the best or possibly the best CMs of India. Daily cases have just reduced by a few hundreds. He does not want to hide any data or any action.
His latest MS Dhoni six is centred around an inclusive action plan. He has included a prominent member from each of the major parties of Tamil Nadu and this team will explore ways and means of getting things done. Someone has been appointed to keep a tab on his social media following. A person narrated his agony when a policeman asked for Rs 500 bribe on Twitter. He was on his way to treat his son, on the outskirts of the Chennai metropolis. He merely tagged his tweet to that of the CM. Within one hour, the money was refunded and the policeman was forced to apologise. This is called action. Yes. This is "positivity". Not utterly useless television monologues.
