Q. I really find strange the under-qualified minister deciding the fate of Students of the Nation and Education comparing with the Leadership..The Nation witnessed non-qualified people occupying decisive placement and ruined the nation. If the Ex-Def. Minister had some knowledge of India's defense, we wud hv had better border securities.Do you think there should be National Debate on the qualification of the Education Minister to structure the Student's fate?? At least, I as a citizen wud like to have person with knowledge and vision in HRD Ministry. Your views

Q. In the coming year.. we are heading to War similar to Kargil under NDA.. The destruction of warships was a strategy towards that.The over-enthusiasm of V.K. Singh and his joining in BJP and pro-Modi is an indicator. This is SEZ strategy. This will not be a War between Pakistan and India.. but the SEZ against STATE.. and Pakistan tribal population will be used against it.How equipped we are to face this internal and cross border challenge?
Sharmila Bose:  A. I am almost sure that he will not be made Minister for Defence. He may be made a junior minister in some ministry or may not even get any position in the ministry. more
