First weekend of the New Year and the last thing one would imagine is to hear violence happening under the vigil of the State – in the capital of the country.
Affiliates of the ruling party allegedly unleashed uninhibited mayhem in the campus of a university. Let that just sink in. Violence inside a campus, going unchecked despite requesting state to restore law and order.
The last couple of years bore witness to the power tussle in the Union Territory capital of India, where the ruling local regime has no power over law and order. And it was evident yet again, how hapless the State remained while the Law and Order was denigrated.
Accountability is one thing that is non existent in Indian Polity nowadays. Who takes responsibility for any of the things that happen? Where do we go from here? How do parents who send kids to colleges be assured of their safety. This is something that would be unimaginable in any other ruling regime in India.
Who would have imagined that in 2020, beginning of a new decade, India would be in as deep trouble as we are right now. Economy, polity, international diplomacy, militia inside the country, crime against women, We Shall Rise Above All.
