Aftermath of the 11th December

The intensity of this violence is too big. I look forward to a future where we won’t such eruptions. I envision a responsive govt to the needs of its citizens, not just the Panchayat Issue but other essential services – the road connection, telecommunication, on-spot govt staffs and infrastructures.

The govt is still to bring this situation to a normalcy and those involved in this incident are being arrested and under investigation. The unfolding developments.
