State of democracy in India
… a glimpse from the article columns
During the recent spate of farmer agitation in India, the way in which the government has gone about and after protesters and those who dissent is unprecedented in a functioning democracy: they cut off internet access, water supply, electricity supply, erected fences and ditches. You would wonder that the farmers are residents of a free democratic country and therefore would have rights to dissent and protest. Seems that the present government of India takes a very different stand.
