Bandh for Belgaum
Today is a state-wide bandh in Karnataka in support of the state's claim over Belgaum. Coming as it does barely a week after a legislature session was held in Belgaum and a decision taken to make it a second capital, it reeks of nothing but political one-upmanship.
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.A state government that cannot take a tough stand against a needless bandh is unfit to be in power. A judicial system which continues to be mocked by parties of all hues in spite of its earlier pronouncements on strikes, bandhs and hartals, needs to wake up and seriously re-evaluate itself.
