Literally it means closure. But today in our country's scenario it means burn buses, throw stones at buildings, loot shops, burn tyres and scare the hapless common man in the name of protests.
I am angry, frustrated and above all helpless. I am a law abiding citizen, do my duties promptly; yet why do I have face inconvenience? The state sponsored agitation in the form of "bandh" today in Karnataka has crippled the lives of common man. In this nation of largest democracy; the common man who is the majority is not cared nor considered.
Order to prosecute CM by our state's governor has resulted in this protests. Is this not a form of terrorism by the political parties on the people who trust them and brought them to power? The ruling party want to protest. Let them do it legally; but why force it on the public? The sight this morning was disturbing. City buses one by one; alighted commuters mid way and returned to the bus depot. What about those people who want to commute to work? School children who were waiting to go to school? Office goers? Travelers stuck on National Highway? No one had any prior intimation as the bandh was declared middle of the night.
We dont have time for all this nonsense, we have our own personal issues. Why jeopardize our life? Loss of crores of money due to closure of business. Would the ruling party pay up for this loss? Would they take up responsibility for the damages to life and property? No one has the right to destroy public property; but these thugs have been ransacking and shamelessly declaring it with pomp. The television clips show them dancing, merry making and laughing away. The opposition are making hay while the sun shines; condemning the acts as if they are all saviors!
All this while, our honorable CM is hiding somewhere. Since last week, major IT companies like Infosys and Wipro want to move out of Karnataka due to lack of support and infrastructure while lands are given at throw away prices and as freebies to kins and relatives of politicians.
What use are the infrastructure and economic development ; when the country is inhabited by rogues and beasts who are not considerate towards fellow human beings.
Appalling and shameful.
