I am happy that this is being debated now, said Kejriwal. I am happy that this is being debated now, said Kejriwal.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said Republic Day speech of President Pranab Mukherjee, who indirectly took a dig at his two-day dharna, had generated a debate whether staging a protest by Chief Minister was constitutional or unconstitutional.

“I am happy that this is being debated now,” said Kejriwal who was cornered by journalists and other invitees in Mughal Garden where he was attending his first ‘At Home’ function after taking over as the Chief Minister.

He was asked about his reaction on the President’s Republic Day eve speech where he had made a veiled attack on Kejriwal’s street protests, saying the government is not a “charity shop” and “populist anarchy” cannot be a substitute for governance.

“The government is not a charity shop. Populist anarchy cannot be a substitute for governance. False promises lead to disillusionment, which gives birth to rage, and that rage has one legitimate target: those in power,” Mukherjee had said on Sunday evening in his address to the nation.

Kejriwal said it was the President’s or the Centre’s point of view but “I am happy that at least a debate has kicked off on whether a dharna by Chief Minister leads to a constitutional crisis or not.” “Please look at the newspapers. Some are in favour and some are critical and a healthy debate is always very good in a democracy,” Kejriwal said.

As Kejriwal was speaking, German Ambassador to India Michael Steiner walked upto him and said that their President Joachim Gauck was visiting India next month and their request for a meeting had been turned down by the Chief Minister’s office.

“Mr Chief Minister, since both of you came into prominence after a civil rights movement, we wanted a meeting between you two. However, your office has turned down the request. So I was wondering if their could be any rethinking on this,” the envoy told the Chief Minister.

Kejriwal prompted replied that he would definitely reschedule some of his appointments and work out the possibility of calling on the visiting President.

    AAP is the cleanest and most transparent party, and it is doing a brave battle to eradicate corruption from this country, fighting the muscle and financial powers of BJP and Congress.AAP is not like BJP or Congress or these regional parties, who are only taking money from big corporate houses under the table, by awarding new contracts and land at very low rate by their state/central governments, and filling their coffer with crores of rupees. So beware and vote for cleanest party in India, i.e. AAP.

      (Jan 26 ‘14) Far from canceling military exercises with the United States, the traitors in New Delhi are going ahead with Malabar naval exercises and have invited an to join in. You do not hold exercises with a country you have to destroy coast-to-coast. The first step is the simultaneous destruction of Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block by India’s nuclear forces.(Jan. 22 ‘14) RAW murdered Sunanda Pushkar on Manmohan Singh’s order: she said she took the “crimes” of Shashi Tharoor in IPL upon herself and she will not put up with it and was about to reveal the crimes which would have been a blow to the scandal-ridden UPA government and so RAW was ordered to murder her. The BJP is silent because of its former president (the fat guy) killing a young girl after raping her and every one covering it up like Sunanda Pushkar’s murder and everyone covering up the crimes of CIA-RAW, with the help of 24-satellite surveillance for the past 37 years, against Satish Chandra to keep India poor, weak and enslaved, to continue their rape of Mother India.(Jan. 20 ‘14) Re the “successful” test of the Agni IV missile today: I have been saying for many years ( IndianAirFircePilotsMurderDOTblogspotDOTcom ) that the U.S. can control the digital circuitry in any equipment, even if it is not connected to the outside world via the Internet, etc., by microwave signals from satellites. Now others are also saying that (“NSA can spy on offline computers wirelessly, says security expert”, CBS News, Dec 30 2013). The U.S. can make India’s missiles crash whenever it wants to. India’s only defence is exploding the nuclear warheads I have had India’s nuclear forces emplace in Washington and New York, with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destro if there any retaliation or sign of retaliation.(Jan. 19 ‘14) Neither Agni I nor Agni II or Agni III or Agni IV or Agni V make India dominant over the U.S.; only exploding India’s nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York, with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destro if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation, does. Missiles will be useful after dominance has been established. But missile tests must not become a subsute for exploding India’s nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York; without exploding those warheads, they will remain inferior Indian s and slaves of the white mandians as a rule are inferior Indian s unfit to talk about strategic matters, especially if it involves the White Master in any way, which it always does. That is why in his 'Mein Kampf' Adolf Hitler said "As for India, I would rather see India under the British than under any one else". It is not just that a handful of the British from half way around the world ruled India for centuries; a lot of other people from various countries did that for a thousand years before that.A modern day Babar will start each day by killing a million Indians before breakfast every morning, though some think three million will be better (this number can be herded into fairly small extermination circles and then a neutron bomb exploded over them). The British killed over ten million Indians (by gun and sword not famine) in just the ten years after 1857 in just Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Bihar and the killings continued right up to 1947 as seen in the example of a Sikh body guard riding in a jeep with the British viceroy gunning down any Indian, man woman or child, that came in view on either side of the road. For the slavery of present day Indians, see their behavior toward the greatest Indian of all time in the final paragraph and for the CIA Director’s and K. Subrahmanyam’s offer to him of one crore rupees combined with threats, see HaydenSubrahmanyamDOTblogspotDOTcom .I am an Indian, but as far above the other Indians as they may be above roaches.(Jan 8 ‘14) A professor of philosophy at New York’s Baruch College once sat down opposite me in Au Bon Pain café in Harvard Square and the first words he said to me were “Maybe you are an Avatar”. Was there something so extra-ordinary in my appearance that made him say that? Others have said similar things. In view of the paragraph below, what they say seems to have some merit. Let us take what they say seriously. Let the word go out that Satish Chandra is an Avatar (Incarnation) and India’s legitimate ruler. (Jan 9 ‘14) A couple hours after I sent the above, a post on Bharat-Rakshak said “There is indeed a God looking after India”. Well, you have to obey God, sing his praises and celebrate the life of an Avatar. This Avatar has already said that Americans deserve to be killed as ruthlessly as fecal bacteria; you are yet to arrest American consular staff -- and ambador -- who helped someone with criminal charges against him flee Indian justice. Immediately upon my reference to arresting the American ambador, the Americans gave diplomatic immunity to the Indian diplomat and let her fly home the same day (Jan 9 ‘14). Now let us deal with the Americans’ crimes against this Avatar (paragraph below).The U.S. has successfully dela by about thirty years the development of India’s cryogenic engine -- a tiny example of incomparably greater sabotage: ""India's greatest scientist and greatest living Indian publicly tortured in Harvard seminar, systematically and totally starved for up to 3 weeks at a time, made semi-starved and homeless and even blind for years, kept under 24-hour audio and video surveillance as well as surveillance of [and interference with] communications and electrical typewriter and computer use, doent creation and photocopying, etc., by satellite for more than past 3 decades, systematically hared and in poverty and neutralised and robbed of his work at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars per year, robbed of crores in his money and property in India by C.I.A.-RAW, forced back into exile in the U.S., all with full cooperation and partition of India's RAW and India's C.I.A.-RAW-controlled prime ministers, politicians and media -- to keep India poor, weak and enslaved" and how this means the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S.; see my blog led 'Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.' which can be found by a Yahoo/Google search with the le; my biography can be found in Marquis' Who's Who in the World, 2014 and earlier editions." One nuclear explosion on Ramlila Grounds where the uninformed mes gather by the hundreds of thousands at the rallies of Kejriwal, Modi, etc. will take care of their por support but, instead, one nuclear explosion on RAW headquarters and one on South Block - North Block will destroy traitors, including Kejriwal, sponsored by CIA-RAW while it suppresses Satish Chandra who can make India the supreme military and economic power in the world immediately by destroying Washington and New York simultaneously with RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destro if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation; his proposal about money will make India the most prosperous nation in the world within about ten years but it will be militarily dominant immediately on the destruction of Washington and New York and will be able to dictate in economic matters also immediately on the destruction of Washington and New York such as by having Americans work as slave labor for India -- although the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States will take precedence over having Americans work as slave labor; I have shown that Americans deserve to be killed as ruthlessly as fecal bacteria. With its nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities, India has the means right now to make all U.S. presidents -- past and present -- present themselves in India to be whipped and hanged, by warning that Washington and New York will be destro if the U.S. fails to obey and additional U.S. cities will be destro if there is any retaliation. Filthy s of the Indian government such as the Commerce and Industry Minister and the Foreign Minister insist on putting “the extremely valuable partnership” with the United States above all else; they have a partnership with the United States in raping Mother India -- they pull apart and hold open the entrances to the cavities of Mother India which the United States then rapes. They deserve death even more than Ratan Tata about whom I wrote: “Ratan Tata should be whipped and hanged for giving $50 million to Harvard University where the world’s greatest scientist was publicly tortured for being an Indian and to keep India poor, weak and enslaved”. I have described -- IndiasLegitimateRulerSatishChandraDOTblogspotDOTcom -- the war waged with the help of 24-hour satellite surveillance for the past 37 years against the only Indian who is an obstacle to the Americans’ rape of India.Satish Chandra
