Meira Kumar As Speaker To Silence Bihar!
By Manuwant Choudhary
In politics everything is a political move...even appointments of Speakers...but in the case of Meira Kumar's appointment..it has little to do with her being a woman or a dalit....she has been appointed only to silence Bihar.
Just like Somnath Chatterjee was appointed Speaker to keep the 60 Communist MPs in place.
Meira Kumar was only a few days ago made a minister for water resources - Bihar's lone minister.
And with all Bihar's MPs being in the opposition Bihar's issues like floods and Special Status was expected to be raised `noisily'.
Now Bihar's MPs will have to sit quietly for the next five years.
Forget jumping into the well of the house and forget fighting for Bihar.
