Teekhi Toon: Government’s Misplaced Priorities

When a government puts all its weight to suppress dissenting voices, you know you're living in an authoritarian rule that has misplaced priorities.

When a government puts all its weight, all its authority and powers to suppress dissenting voices, rather than tackling actual problems being faced by its citizens, you know you’re living in an authoritarian rule that has its priorities misplaced…you know that, rather than fighting actual threats of lawlessness, poverty, unemployment etc., government is trying to shoot the messenger.

Here is cartoonist Kanika’s take on government’s attitude of confrontation with students who’re questioning its wrongdoings and failures:

They are dangerous for the country, keep an eye on them, cut their supplies... Sir, I guess you're talking about ISI, CIA, MI6 and MSS. No, He's talking about JNU, HCU, AMU, AU, JU, IIT, IIM and FTII...
