  • The Midnight Drama

    Bravo , Somnath Bharati

    Bravo for that brush with the Delhi Police at midnight , yesterday

    You managed to conclusively establish , what people of Delhi suspected all along , viz :,

    > If Delhi Police cannot care a hoot , even for a Minister , the poor stand no
    chance to get them to act on their complaints

    > Delhi Police are hand-in-glove with the drug mafia / pimps / rapists /
    swindlers / murderers / smugglers / all anti-social elements

    > Delhi Police are the most corrupt department


    Next time you conduct such a ” surprise raid ” ,

    > do it in daytime

    > under the glare of 100 TV cameras

    > in the presence of the people of Delhi

    > telecast LIVE on news channels

    TV editors will be too glad to oblige !

    That is the only way to expose Police-Mafia nexus !

    Forget the proper procedures – which only succeed in alerting the Mafia !

    But don’t expect things to change much till AAP manages to get FULL STATEHOOD status for Delhi , and make the Police report to the Delhi government , instead of the Central Home Minister

    Of course , the Centre will do everything to prevent this !

    In the meantime , a word of caution to the Delhi Police :

    Remember ,

    > Somnath is only a symbol of people’s anger / frustration

    > If you don’t mend your ways fast , this anger will boil over

    > At that time , your lathis / tear gas / water cannons will not be able to
    control the people

    > People have witnessed what happened in Arab countries recently

    > They are desperate to try anything that they think , will get them justice

    > Do not stretch your luck

    > Next time you fail to act on their complaints – or a complaint of any
    Minister of Delhi government , you will run out of luck !

    > With 2014 elections approaching fast , Congress Home Minister will not
    come to your aid – for fear of an ” ANTI – CONGRESS ” wave over ”

    Remember , Ram Lila Maidan in 2011 ?
