Argument welcome, but rhetoric serves hardly any purpose
Mr Shahid Shabir’s (Not on right track – GK 16-02-2011) response to my opinion (He is on right track – GK 11-02-2011) is welcome. I thank him for his keen interest and the counter-argument.
For making internet and social networking popular and allowing people to voice their opinion for or against is allowing participation of people directly without having any intermediary between the government and the people. This must be encouraged and it needs courage to hear criticism on an open platform that whole world can witness. This is one of the primary reasons for me appreciating the techno-savvy Omer. In 16th February issue of a Delhi based newspaper the leader of the PDP Mehbooba Mufti went on record that she is not tech savvy. Would this augur well for youth of the state to know this? Let youth of state decide for themselves. Mr Shabir wants us to look at history and blame NC for keeping people unaware of world happenings? Which history has he looked at? What world happenings have been referred to? And if he claims using a measuring tape contribution of political parties being responsible for and more so by their incidental presence for internet revolution and other developmental works that have happened, he must again stand corrected. The government and opposition both are same sides of coin. One complements other. And together are responsible and accountable for welfare and betterment of people. What one political party does is carried forward by next which comes to power. And they both go to people with their respective progress reports.
The Water Resources Bill, LOC Relaxation and Generating Employment paragraphs written by Mr. Shabir is rhetoric. People of our times are no longer swayed by these emotional outbursts. From long we have been used to such utterances.
