“Discovered check” in chess happens when a player moves a piece to reveal a hidden piece behind it which has a direct line of attack on the opponent’s king. A discovered check can be deadly when the piece moved can threaten checkmate in a few moves if the opponent is not careful. In the political scenario today, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma is equivalent to a “discovered check” and how and why is that important – well, lets find out.
In 2019 – 2020, concerned citizens uploaded videos of Uighur Muslims congregating in large numbers in parts of Bihar. Bihar Police and NIA swung into action immediately to determine how these people had entered Indian territory. Though the entire extent of investigation can be termed as “ongoing”, it didn’t take long for authorities to conclude that they had made their way through West Bengal. The agenda behind their presence has raised many questions – is it because of persecution by Chinese authorities or is there a larger plot that needs to be unraveled? Why did they not choose to make their way to Bangladesh which has a large population of Muslims?
It became increasingly clear after these videos surfaced that the infiltration by the Chinese was aided by a free-for-all policy adopted by Didi. The return of NDA in Bihar in 2020 was of utmost importance, for the next plan of action was already formulated.
The Chinese mischief at Galwan Valley, Himachal Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim exposed their expansionist ambitions and it became imperative that a strong personality was needed to secure the fate of North East India and the important international borders of Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.
The defection of Suvendu Adhikari to the BJP before the crucial Bengal elections was the shot in the arm that the NDA was looking for. BJP was never expected to win Bengal but they made their presence felt and won important seats that increased their tally in the Rajya Sabha. It was also necessary to show the country the true picture of Bengal – unprecedented post-poll violence, rising crimes against women and children, unimaginable poverty and illiteracy and alarming clusters of Rohingyas who actively took part in instigating violence at the behest of the stooges of the Bengal tigress.
Though Didi scored a thumping victory over her sworn rivals, her position was reduced from the undisputed queen of Bengal to a wounded tigress after her loss in Nandigram to Suvendu. Her mercurial temperament has been a matter of great amusement for both the citizens and political parties since 2011. She has managed to embarrass herself, the state and its people in each and every political, state and national function since 2011 – an unenviable record indeed!
Suvendu’s elevation to LOP can be deemed as placing the rook in the seventh rank (in chess) with a very clear intent (powerful move that will check her movements to a great extent). Suvendu’s rise to power will definitely see the Bengal tigress grinding her teeth at night but it is the move to make Himanta as the Assam CM (discovered check) that will give her sleepless nights.
Himanta’s rise to fame came off a much-publicized affront by an elite pseudo crown prince namely Rahul Gandhi and his dog Pidi which will be a defining moment for Indians in the years to come. He has gone from strength to strength after joining the BJP and Indians should rejoice his promotion to the position of CM.
Himanta’s tough stance on terror, illegals, drugs, anti-nationals and mischief-makers with vested interests to create communal disharmony and civil unrest is well-known. He is loved by the public and feared by extremists and those who are always on the wrong side of the law.
It is important for India to be self-sufficient as it is unlikely to get any support from the weakest President ever seen in history of the US namely Joe Biden – a point well-advertised when the country refused to lift the embargo on raw materials for the production of vaccine. However, isn’t it curious that only after a dossier was presented to Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the first CDS of India and a phone call was made by NSA to his counterpart in the US that they jolted into activity? What work does the NSA have in a pandemic unless there is irrefutable evidence to prove that the Chinese virus is a form of biological warfare and that second wave that came like a tsunami and died as quickly was engineered by imported elements?
The allegiance of the new US intelligence chief to China and organizations run by billionaires like George Soros and Bill Gates with ample resources on hand that actively works to destabilize economies is more than just a murmur. It is highly unlikely that the role of USA in creating the Chinese virus in a Wuhan lab can be kept a secret any longer.
It is therefore an excellent decision by the NDA Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to appoint Himanta to a position of immense strategic importance – to observe, report and act decisively against the evil machinations of China on North East India and to keep an eagle eye on Didi and her affinity for imported elements (illegals, anti-nationals and extremist and radical outfits).
Our allies in this fight against China are France, Israel, Russia, Japan, Taiwan, Australia and UAE among others. However, there are many in our own country who don’t want India to safeguard its borders and win the war against China’s multitude of attacks.
The Gandhi dynasty along with the usual suspects (AAP and Arvind Kejriwal, elite pseudo crown princes, kingmakers and bureaucrats) are unleashing misinformation at an astonishing regularity through various channels like civil servants, newspapers, social media outlets, TV channels and messaging apps trying to create widespread panic and unrest.
The need of the hour is to not allow these plots to take a definitive shape to divide India, defame the Prime Minister and derail the economy.
