Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan Mohan Reddy’s use of brute majority in the assembly to pass a resolution to dissolve the Legislative Council is outlandish and autocratic. The TDP-dominated Council blocked his ill-conceived idea of three capitals, justifying the checks and balances that bicameral legislatures bring. Parliament shouldn’t entertain such resolutions.

Union minister Anurag Thakur has crossed a dangerous line with his veiled incitement of violence during the Delhi election campaign.

  1. Don’t hold your breath. We know what happened to Shri Lavasa when he decided to call out the poll code violations. The institutions have been trampled over, either filled in with yes men, or few remaining upright officers targeted in different ways.

    Another key question: where is the opposition? Shouldn’t the whole opposition be now protesting against such language and threats outside the parliament?

  2. No one is going to pick up a gun and actually shoot somebody. Nor are these crazy statements going to win the Delhi election. However, it is sad that that these statements are being made by responsible functionaries, who have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution. Our institutions are now on an Odd – Even mode, some days they drive, other days they walk. In a democracy, it ultimately comes down to the people, as Shri Umar Khaled explains in his fine column. It is now for ordinary Indians to make their judgment calls.
