In Assam, the then Prime Minister Mrs Indira Gandhi was in Nellie inside hours of the authorities informing her of the massacres. She was hugging survivors to her bosom and promising them succour and help, issuing stern directions to state authorities to take motion. In Mumbai, even the growing old and doddering prime minister PV Naraimha Rao hit the streets speaking about figuring out the brains that brought about the bloodshed aside from punishing the fingers that executed the duty.
In Latur in 1993, then chief minister Sharad Pawar slept in a bullock cart all evening to be shut at hand to spice up the morale of his officers pressed into earthquake reduction. In Tamil Nadu in 2004, prime minister Manmohan Singh had pulled the perfect bureaucrats out of retirement and pressed them to deliver reduction to the individuals after the tsunami, reporting to a particular cell in his workplace. That is the form of Indian authorities I reported on over time, even when tottering in components, each chief and each bureaucrat fiercely decided to reduce the ache of the individuals.
It is just now that I discover the present dispensation abdicating its accountability and lacking in motion. Neither the chief ministers of Uttar Pradesh or Bihar, nor the prime minister or the house minister of the nation have been seen wherever close to hospitals or the shores of the Ganga and Yamuna as our bodies washed up on land.
