The writing was on the wall, everybody had anticipated that the fake farmers would go on a rampage, come January 26, and with textbook accuracy, they did what they had set out to do – holding the capital to a siege, instigating riots, violence, and causing overall destruction to life and property. The Government of India (GOI) which indulged the Khalistani’s in-peace talks for several months, finally paid the price for their leniency and failing to call the bluff of the mobsters.
“Farmer leader” Gurnam Singh Chadhuni laid out their plans openly, before the media. The government failed to foresee this violence despite clear indications and many journalists are still defending and romanticising the unfortunate event.

The domino effect leading up to yesterday’s event was set in motion by the esteemed Supreme Court which blurred the line of Legislature and Judiciary. The highest court of law in the country needlessly poked around and issued a stay on the law passed in the parliament through proper channels. Furthermore, the court permitted the fake farmers to undertake the ‘tractor rally’ based on the assurance of one ‘Prashant Bhushan’ who the SC had a few months back adjudged convict in contempt of court case.
While the SC gave a booster shot of confidence to the fake farmers, the Modi government sat idly and allowed them to organise themselves and plot the entire rendezvous of chaos. The so-called farmers were never going to stick to the planned route of the protests and yet our state machinery failed in anticipating the events.
Some are saying that the violence was allowed to perpetuate so that the Government can have an upper hand or leverage in the negotiations as the perception of farmers has taken a severe beating in the public eye.

But the common man asks, since when it became the policy of the GOI to negotiate with the fake farmers? The same protestors masquerading as farmers tried to rail down police personnel using tractors, wielded swords and guns on point-blank at them, and injured more than 150 officers who did not fire a single bullet because their hands were tied by the Modi regime.
We all saw the horror of Police officers jumping off a cliff into the gorge just outside the rampart of Red Fort, to save their lives. We all saw the photo of two policemen cornered by a violent mob, begging and pleading for their lives.

Nothing justifies the government’s meek stance of playing on the neutral ground. A majority government that can succumb to the violence of anti-national activists so easily with an alarming frequency surely needs to take a good, hard look at its policies. Off late, it has become a pattern for all anti-national protests to snowball into a violent, anarchist protest but the GOI so far hasn’t been able to find a solution to keep such events in check. And that is a tragedy of epic proportions.
