    Rahul warns against globalisation: 'Excludes as much as it includes'

    Posted: Thu Oct 20 2011

    Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday advocated measures like UID and inculcation of the Buddhist idea of “compassion” to meet challenges posed by globalisation, which, he said, “excludes as much as it includes”.

    “There are millions left out of the process, millions who do not benefit from globalisation and millions more damaged by its asymmetrical application of power. The local networks that protected them no longer exist,” he said at the 20th anniversary lecture of Rajiv Gandhi Institute for Contemporary Studies.

    While he sought to red-flag concerns about globalisation citing the examples of a Vidarbha farmer who drinks pesticide “as global cotton prices tumble” and a tribal boy who walks past a housing colony “built on top of his home never to set foot in it again”, Rahul steered clear of a sweeping judgement on globalisation, which came in for sharp criticism from Yale Professor Thomas Pogge.
    Invited by the institute to speak on ‘Globalisation, Justice and Rights’, Pogge attributed to globalisation the emergence of “supranational law and regulations”, dominated by alliances like G7, G8 and G20, from which the general public and even the majority of weaker governments are effectively excluded.

    Noting that migration is converting India from a static, village-based society into a mobile urban one, Rahul said the process “leaves people bereft of justice and rights”. “It is a process that involves fathers sleeping on footpaths in new cities... women being sold silently in the shadows...Our concepts of justice and rights have been structured for static societies,” he said.

    Rahul Baba - suggest an alternative!!

    If you ask me, life in the cities is still better for those who migrate from villages. If it wasn't the case, there wouldn't have been any migration!!

    High time the people woke up.
    The CONgress enjoyed support from the educated class in the past, but I'm sure that they're fed up to the teeth now.
    The Hindu working class hates them, the middle class hates them, I just wish the Muslims would sign up.

    Well Rahul can start his "protest" against globalization by dumping his "phoren" girlfriend and go swadesi.

    Just today Pronob asked for support from the BJP for next set of reforms which includes FDI in retail that will get the walmarts and carrefours into India.

    Pronob for PM, Rahul hai hai!!

    May be he got carried away having being invited. He took it as a for or against competition of school and decided to speak against it. Sadly he may just give another push to the markets going down big time.

    From 2004 - 2009, congress carried out very little economic liberalisation, but they conveniently blamed the communist for that, saying its because of coalition compulsion. But now the real face of Congress is beginning to come out, even the 90s liberalisation was done because they had no other choice, not because they actually wanted a liberal economy.

    I am very much anti-Rahul but I think One day He would become PM , May be 2019 or 2023. He has age in his hand + Top leader of congress in making. It's not possible that Congress won't win election in next 30 years also His surname is Gandhi.

    Yesterday i was at dinner party and there was one astrologer who said he has read his patri in depth and said it was the worst he has read and claimed that he will not become prime minister. The best patri he had read was of akbar and queen elizabeth 1.

    Now i dont believe in astrology but i thought to share what i heard.

    This guy is a Dumna%# moron and congrasiyas want this dimwit son of a corrupt Italian to be the PM of the this godforsaken nation of bigger fools and illiterates . I say why not? We have seen the consequences of a weak spineless PM (our very own shameless MMS) i.e. it's free for all loot for anyone and everyone in congress. Raul will be one step ahead of MMS, i.e spineless-shameless and at the same time brainless!! I seriously petty this guy's speech writers, they ought to be from some rag-tag commie shit-pant organization, hired by that demented idiot diggy raja the bafoon!
