    PMK's Ramadoss wants an "indefinite" bandh in Tamil Nadu

    In a brazen attempt at terrorizing Tamil Nadu, the PMK's founder & president, S Ramadoss has proposed an "indefinite" bandh in Tamil Nadu in protest against the Sri Lankan army's attacks on the LTTE.

    Thankfully, he is charitable enough to exclude ambulances and the supply of milk from the scope of the bandh. Of course he isn't going to be impacted. He and his goons will court arrest and be released in an hour, probably escorted home by the DGP.

    The ones who suffer are the general populace, without the ability to go to work, run their business, buy vegetables & fruits at affordable rates, etc.

    Given that the Supreme Court had ruled, a decade ago in 1998, that bandhs were illegal and unconstitutional, Ramadoss' demand for an "indefinite" bandh is an indicator of how important adherence to laws and the Constitution is for him and others of his ilk. Although I don't foresee it happening, the Tamil Nadu government should throw Ramadoss & the rest of the gangs into jail for threatening to breach the law and order of the state.
