It is very rare to find the government in a state acting in a manner which seems to be aligned with the drug mafia. But it is all too apparent in Maharashtra.
Many months ago I had pointed out that a war had broken out in Maharashtra between the central government and the drug lord named as DALDA in a fictional work. According to this fictional work the dalda is also a prominent politician. I’m not sure if this politician is from Maharashtra but the DALDA has tremendous influence over the Government of Maharashtra. Look at the recent sequence of events.
Finally it has happened. Maharashtra Police entered the house of Arnab Goswami, Editor of Republic TV and arrested him to early morning. He was allegedly assaulted too. Everything was executed in the inhuman manner forewarned by Supreme Court not to be resorted. But Governments are evil. All Governments are inherently evil. With monopoly of violence a Government Machinery when not in check can be brutal. With an editor like Arnab who was openly challenging the Government and Police Commissioner in his daily TV show, it was bound to happen. It had to happen as Rule of Law is as good as the human being, guardians of it. Rule of law is threatened by left leaning riots even in USA.
Hurt Egos and an incompetent Chief Minister:
Maharashtra is being ruled by three party coalition of people of hurt egos. Their egos is hurt by formation of Government itself as it is compromise between fire and ice. The Congress Party is now ideologically extreme Leftist and Islamist Party and it is in power in Maharashtra. The Government of Maharashtra is headed by a Chief Minister who has never held any administrative post including that of a Class Monitor. His time in office highlights that there must be a provision in the Constitution in which a person who has never held administrative positions must not be permitted to be appointed as head of Government directly.
Maharashtra is making a new low in governance and has already hit bottom in upholding rule of law. When Police and Municipal Authorities act like hooligans of purpose rather than enforcers of law, it is anarchy written all over it.
Maharashtra’s inability to tackle Corona is old news.
Republic TV today stirred another sting at 10 am. This comes a the sting of Congress spokesperson Raghavendra Shukla, who affirmed that Maharashtra Government will ensure that republic tv is shut down.
Another sting by Republic TV:
Now the Republic TV has staged Nawab Malik, a minister in the Mahaghadi government of Maharashtra. He too is from Congress Party. In the sting, the Nawab is seen saying about the conspiracy against its owner Arnab Goswami.
Mumbai has reported 23,000 fresh infections in past 24 hours, the highest in any state of India on any single day. But switch on any TV channel for past one week, the Government is busy protecting Rhea Chakraborty from arrest or bad mouthing Kangana Ranaut.
Kangana Ranaut had reached Mumbai and the ruling party Shiv Sena could only demolish one floor of her office in her absence in open defiance of rule of law, natural justice or common sense or politics. It also violates the general embargo on all demolitions due to Corona. Later Shiv Sena proclaimed it’s achievement:
The headline above smacks not just arrogance but also a lack of sobriety expected from a publication. The alterations made in the apartment of Kangana are very common and exist in every household including that of prime minister of India. If such demolitions are permitted no building in India would be legal enough to stand on ground.
On top of it a reporter of Republic TV has been arrested from the farm house of the Chief Minister (??) and is being kept in custody of police for several days. Why TV has not filed habeas corpus petition in High Court? Why it has not approached the concerned Magistrate?
