Gentlemen ,
Each of India's 1.1 Billion wishes to see all regions pull together as a willing Union . 
And to become a paradise on Earth.
Nothing Happens!
You have to build it up that way.
Neither  the 1950 Constitution,nor Kalam's fond wish of a two-party system within the same Constitution can fulfill above wishes. 
Something of a Catastrophy is in the works.
There was an opportunity to avoid the Catastrophy. This was :to thrash out a co-operation in talks with ULFA -from which the Leaderless Regime Shied away at the last moment. 
As leader of PCG ,the undersigned told "Liberate Us -and we will liberate You". Probably there is nobody in the regime capable of thinking into the future.
Kalam is supposed to be the pinnacle of High Tech (even if you write off the rest as Imbeciles and Babus).
And he should have  known what he was talking about.
Now look at this:< PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS AT THE INAUGURATION OF THE CONFERENCE ON DEVELOPMENT OF EAST & NORTH EAST INDIA - STRATEGIC ISSUES IN A NATIONAL PERSPECTIVE: Convergence of Core Competencies for Regional Prosperity"Great missions born out of great minds">
#1 Doesn't he /they do these 24x365 at Delhi? Why "Region" eulogized now-  when you split Assam into 7 to divide and rule EASIER? Will Jharkhand ever yield to  Nagas?. Or W. Bengal to Orissa?
#2  Is it out of a guilty feeling-when everything India Concentrates are going to his TN?
#3 He says:Assam is endowed with petroleum, natural gas, coal, limestone and many other mineral like magnetic quartzite.Anybody heard of THIS?
#4 Not once did he ask " Is every one of our 1.1 Billion usefully employed for  Society's  common welfare?" 
"Is there a system in place to ensure  that every one  gets  total security,protection,  and future  is being-planned-for  and nobody ever has to take his own life because the STATE forgot  about him?"
Think ,all of you. You can reserve your opinion for/against Kalam-Sonia-Mayawati.
And I have a message for their Excellencies--The President--The PM..
TALK as equals should."

Dear all,I have been a spectator on this subject and felt that I needed to contribute with my views as I felt that the discussion was going off-course. The issue is not about 2 party or multi-party systems to govern India, but the real issue is to get strong parties to contribute to the growth of this nation. Today, politics are led more on an individual level. The charisma of the individual leads to the election or defeat of a party. Look at all the parties and the individuals behind them and this is quite evident. Sonia Gandhi cannot assume a powerful seat and hope that Congress will emerge as a powerful organization. It can never happen. The same goes for all others. So, my first point is that the PARTY and not the individual should be powerful in order to deliver results.These leaders use every dirty trick possible to win votes, which more often than not leads to a hung parliament. The more the number of parties, the more the number of cooks (crooks!) to spoil the broth. Initiatives are often stalled in the name of Social Justice or some stupid idea as a result. The past 2-3 years are proof enough of this. A single party in majority has no alibi to not deliver if they are in clear majority. This can happen more likely in a 2 party system than so many parties with different agendas.I agree with the Honourable President on this one.Regards,Sanjay Aggarwal> DEAR ALL,>           THE EMERGENCE OF MAYAWATI IN U.P.
