The youth wing of Congress party Indian Youth Congress is holding today a massive protest in Delhi. The protest is supposed to be against the anti-people policies of the Narendra Modi government.

Called “भारत बचाओ जन आंदोलन,” the protest started in Delhi at 10:00 a.m. today.

Youth Congress claimed that a large number of its workers were arrested by Delhi Police when they were demonstrating against the Modi government.

However, the leaders of Youth Congress asserted that they are not scared of the blows on them; they will keep fighting.

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but it will never break my spirit to serve my country! Dear friends, make an oath, a pledge to yourselves to help become the change India deserves. Your country needs you,” said a Youth Congress leader.

Banana Republic

The sorry plight of Indians indicates that India has already become a politically unstable banana republic with rampant lawlessness, corruption, and exploitation of the ordinary citizens.

During the past 4 years of Modi government, India has gone back by almost 40 years as Indians are facing umpteen problems such as joblessness, dwindling economy, worsening foreign relations, human rights violations, extreme poverty, and so on.

Bureaucratic and political corruption has become pain in the neck for commoners in India. A new “Freedom in the World 2017” report – released by Freedom House, a Washington-based independent watchdog organization – highlights rampant political and bureaucratic corruption in India. It reveals that corruption has a negative effect on government efficiency and economic performance.

“Though politicians and civil servants at all levels are regularly caught accepting bribes or engaging in other corrupt behavior, a great deal of corruption goes unnoticed and unpunished,” the report said in its findings.

Similarly, global anti-corruption organization Transparency International has lowered India’s rank from last year’s position of 79 to 81 this year. According to the Transparency data, India with a poor score of 40 is more corrupt than countries such as China, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Mauritius.

If the situation is not controlled immediately, it is expected that soon international sanctions will be imposed on India because of Modi government’s failure to stop increasing crime and corruption.
