This is the grammar of anarchy that Dr B R Ambedkar warned us about. Unfortunately, the opposition is repeatedly stoking the fire.
At some point, it is not the BJP, but the country that will suffer.
The tragic deaths of some farmers and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers at Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh two days ago exposes – once again – the strategy being used to oust Yogi Adityanath and Narendra Modi from power in 2022 and 2024 respectively.
The idea is to use passive aggressive protests in public spaces, coupled with violence, to defeat two democratically elected leaders. The deaths of some farmers happened because an automobile convoy linked to a BJP Minister of State ran them over (the minister himself was not part of the convoy), and the lynchings of BJP workers and a journalist are reported to be the result of mob fury after the automobile tragedy.
