Police leadership has failed India

Police leaders continue to display abject incompetence in leading the police from front. The working and living conditions of policemen remain subhuman in most states. Their training and lack of camaraderie is apparent from the shameful manner in which the murdered Inspector, Subodh Kumar Singh, was abandoned by his subordinates when surrounded by murderous crowd in the Bulandshahr incident.

It’s time for anyone but Modi

Recent interview of PM Modi with ANI has once again proved that he is no visionary. Nor did he say anything reassuring for poor farmer and unemployed youth. He tried to paint a rosy picture by projecting data with one-sided interpretation. He came out as a spokesperson for the party rather than as the prime minister of this great nation. His refusal to take responsibility for the recent electoral losses also puts him in poor light.

Too many killings at the border

Grandstanding about surgical strikes could have been avoided. Public pronouncement of the strikes and resultant aggressive retaliatory actions by the Pakistanis has in fact put authorities under more pressure. On one hand expectations of masses have been raised and on the other the locals living along the border are finding their daily life totally disrupted due to daily exchange of fire.

Jungle raj in UP: What next for our cops?

Muslims get no succor from the law enforcement agencies too because most of the police personnel too are polarised on communal lines. Perhaps the heinous murder of one of their own will spur them into action like it did once to Punjab Police in controlling militancy when the militants started attacking police personnel and their families.
