And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame?Well, certainly, there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if ...

Demonetisation is fundamentally an act of economic terrorism, आर्थिक आतंकवाद.

In Ryan International murder case, Bus Conductor was arrested. Public wanted instant justice. Lawyers refused to take his case. Later turned out he was innocent. Cops had tortured him to confess. Thankfully he wasnt shot in encounter before and case closed with people cheering

By the time Supreme Court begins to hear the stay against #ElectoralBonds another tranche of bonds would have been sold in January 2020. Just reminding.

BJP is donating billions of dollars to Russia, Bhutan, Mongolia, Srilanka, Maldives etc.,

What is the BJP's "nation"? It doesn't seem to be India.

2. Who is to say that a Buddhist from Nepal is actually from Nepal ? Could well be from China. Already Chinese goods have invaded India, now why invite their people over as well?

Look forward to articles on the economic pivot ; there may be more pivots.

All in all, I think we should focus on pivots that people can immediately relate to, and evoke a threat-response.

With NRC/CAB on us, it is clear that our much-vaunted constitutional values aren't directly invoking the necessary response from the public.

Thus, I'd ask that we broaden the coverage of the scope of the impact to cover the current economic scenario.

No lies, just truths.

1. Why give an open invitation for neighbouring countries to send illegal immigrants to India? Does it make any difference if your job is stolen by a Bangladeshi or Nepali Hindu , vs a Bangladeshi Muslim?

2. Who is ..

With Dec'19, completed 5 years of monthly donations to AAP.

Missed 2 months due to flood donations to TN & Kerala, but made up elsewhere.

Hope AAP helps build a nation that works for all of us, starting with Delhi.

Have you taken the yet?

Retd. Justice Ganguly of the Supreme Court of , along with @sanjayuvacha , are unable to see how the conclusions reached in the verdict match the reasons therein.

@musafir Of course, did you not know that... it is so fragile that a single negative thought tho ne'er express'd can unhinge it from its tracks and send it careening down an unending slope to disaster of unmitigated proportions... (Sarcasm intended)

A must-read panoramic view of the electoral bonds scam by @nit_set ; thanks are due to Nitin, @poonamjourno , Anjali Bharadwaj, Cmde Lokesh Batra, Venkatesh Nayak and several others, named and unnamed, for exposing this.

Going forward, I would like to see more articles with greater emphasis on how foreign donations and shell companies have been given "right to life".

Modi’s rhetorical messaging is now aimed at shifting constitutional responsibility from the State to the citizen. ‘Democratic rights, but also duties’ implies that ‘If you fail to do your duty, we can withhold your rights’. My column for @DeccanHerald@twitter.com. deccanherald.com/opinion/ask-w

Mahua Moitra is very eloquent on what the challenge facing today, and how parties are coming together despite differences in ideology to save the nation.
