Why is the PM Silent on Violent Incidents?
Recently violent incidents took place in many parts of the country. Why processions were allowed through sensitive areas, namely where mosques were situated? Such incidents took place in Hubli in Karnataka and Jahangirpuri in Delhi. Actually there were no permissions from the police department. Processionists raised provocative slogans. This is unacceptable. There are many questions pertaining to these incidents. Why were these violent processions allowed without prior permission? Why were the processionists allowed to carry weapons? Why did the police remove the names of VHP and Bajrang Dal after mentioning them in a statement? These violent incidents were manufactured and well-planned. These were not spontaneous communal clashes, but politically inspired communal incidents. All these raise the questions, why is the PM silent all through?

BJP MLA’s Threat to Bureaucrats
In the BJP-ruled States, MLAs, and even bureaucrats and the party’s cadre more often than not behave in a brash, cocky and arrogant manner. Recently at least 30 officers of the Cachar district administration have signed a memorandum and submitted it to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, complaining against the behaviour of a BJP MLA. The officers accused the ruling party MLA of misbehaving, insulting, threatening and abusing officers on duty. The memorandum said the MLA had questioned the integrity of the entire Assam Civil Services, or ACS, cadre.
“We, the Civil Services Officers of Cachar district, having confidence in your able leadership, would like to bring to your esteemed notice, the very shameful incident of gross misbehaviour by MLA Lakhipur towards the civil servants engaged in relief duty in Sonal Revenue Circle Dr. Dipankar Nath, ACS, Circle officer, Sonal Revenue Circle and Sri Bikash Chetri, ALRS, Circle officer (A), Sonal Revenue Circle, Sri. Hussain Mohammad Mobin, ALRS, BDO, Sonai in presence of Sri, Ashok Singhal, Guardian Minister, Cachar, who were reviewing the flood situation, who being accompanied by the District President, BJP, Cachar, Ex-MLA, Sonal, the Panchayat representatives along with several party workers and their associates,” the memorandum said.
The officers of Cachar also complained that, “while visiting the designated relief camps at Govindanagar Shivbari High School, the MLA, Lakhipur remarked that BDO of Sonai, Hussain Mohammad Mobin, ALRS should be beaten up in the same manner as he was once manhandled at block office by various party workers on 10th March, 2022.”
The Chief Minister should take stringent action against the erring MLA. If not, the party will have to pay during the next Assembly elections.
Sri Lanka Crisis and Tamil Nadu
Sri Lanka Prime Minister Ranil Wickreme Singhe recently thanked Mr. Stalin, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu after a fresh consignment of essential supplies to the suffering people of Sri Lanka. “A friend in need is a friend indeed” Our closest neighbour Sri Lanka was passing through a critical period. The former authoritarian regime has reduced it to a failed state. Let us hope that Indian and Sri Lankan citizens will come close to each other and set an example of good neighbourly relationship and promote world peace and fundamental human rights.
