Brothers and sisters of India, Namaste
The 2024 election season has commenced across the world, here in America and certainly in India. Election seasons present an opportunity for change, to put an end to outdated policies and non progressive people, replaced with voices and values that inspire and truly align with all citizens, their convictions, and what is best for the collective future of a nation. Many people ask why I support Prime Minister
and follow India affairs so closely. The answer is simple. I love India and the Indian people globally. And I believe the Prime Minister is the best leader for India and the progress of Indian citizens. He’s the best leader for the U.S.-India relationship, and for the global economic stability of the world. Moreover, he is a leader who believes in the empowerment of women. From paving the way for President Murmu’s historic election, to appointing women in key cabinet positions, to encouraging Indian #women athletes and their achievements, the Prime Minister stands for women.
Today, India faces a defining moment. Right in Bihar. Where the value of women is being challenged. And I believe there is only one answer to this challenge. After Chief Minister #NitishKumar Ji’s comments, I believe a courageous woman needs to step up and declare her candidacy to run for Chief Minister of Bihar. If I were a citizen of #India, I would move to Bihar and run for Chief Minister.
In the holy scriptures, Queen Esther was admonished by her cousin Mordecai to boldly approach her husband, the King, to help save her Jewish people. It was Mordecai who challenged Esther to see her place as Queen, her place and time in the kingdom, as a defining moment to save her Jewish people. Mordecai said to Esther, “who knows but that you Esther have come to the kingdom, made Queen, for such a time as this?”
I believe the time is now for Nitish Kumar to resign and for an Esther to arise in Bihar.
I believe the #BJP should empower a woman to lead in Bihar. This would be the true sentiment of women empowerment and development in response. Or #Bihar, do as #SRK admonished in the film #Jawan, “vote” and bring change. You the people of Bihar, of India, have the power to vote in a woman, to vote in change…for such a time as this. Namaste
Mary Millben, through a video posted on her ex-Twitter account, addressed the controversy surrounding Nitish Kumar’s comments on women. She stated that many people ask her why she praises Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to which she responded that her affection for India and its people is the primary reason. She believes Modi is the best leader for the progress of India and its citizens globally, highlighting his vital role in achieving global economic stability. Millben criticized Nitish Kumar’s comments, stating that they challenge the value of women in Bihar.
Mention of Shah Rukh Khan’s Movie “Jawaan”
Expressing her opinion on Nitish Kumar’s statements, Mary Millben suggested that he should resign. She believes that Bihar, with the influence of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), could foster a genuine sentiment for women’s empowerment and development. Drawing a parallel, she mentioned Shah Rukh Khan’s movie “Jawaan,” where the importance of voting was highlighted. She urged the people of Bihar to understand the power of their vote and emphasized the need for change. The singer appealed to the people, especially women, to use their voting rights to bring about a positive transformation in society.
