I have linked the speech above. It's a pdf.
The president claims an 'upsurge' in the economy. I have yet to research this data. I have asked the writer at billu.net to perhaps shed some light. Have we made reforms that will better the nation? Is their really democratic governance at the grass root level? Do we even need, or require democratic governence at this crucial juncture? That can perhaps be a title for another post.
