I do think Modi is a danger to our democratic rights but I still have a right to call him what I want without having full state security come down on me.
Well, as we speak, the Kerala journalist Siddique Kappan who had gone to BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh state to report on the case of the gang rape and murder of a Dalit girl in Hathras, that journalist was kept jailed despite ill health. He was jailed just for daring to report on that case. From this article :
Kappan’s medical reports, submitted at the Supreme Court, claimed that he tested covid-19 positive on April 21. He sustained injuries after slipping in the jail bathroom. When he was admitted at a private hospital in Mathura, doctors attending on him disclosed that he was also suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes and heart ailments.

His lawyer Wills Mathews and the Kerala working Journalists’ Union had moved an application to the apex court seeking an order to shift him to any good hospital in Delhi for better treatment.

His wife Riahana Kappan had alleged that he was chained at the hospital and not being allowed to go to the washroom. She had also written a letter to the Supreme Court Chief Justice requesting his immediate release on medical grounds.

Kappan was arrested in October last year along with three others when they were on way to Hathras after gang-rape and murder of a 19-year-old dalit girl. He has been lodged in Mathura jail since then.

The UP STF has filed a chargesheet against Kappan and seven other PFI agents in Mathura Court slapping sedition and other charges under Sections 124 A, 153 A, 295 A of the IPC along with UAPA and IT Act.

I read that in a article arundhati Roy wrote in the guardian the other day that's why I think modi a danger. But overall he will not be able to turn india into a one part dictatorship . Congress no saints i remember a neighbour of ours was locked up during indira Gandhi's attempt to rule uninterrupted in the 70s it failed and if modi try the same he will fail. This nothing new during my younger days the crackdown in my state I saw so many undemocratic events but democracy is not going to lose. They all try and the left now has to wake up and put forward policies that will attract the middle class . Shit will hit the fan before people see the danger I think and it is a worry

He's been shifted to AIIMS Delhi but still under detention.

It's all relative. Last great orator India had was Vajpayee.
Yet he wasn't able to use his oratory to guide the Indian masses towards progressive social, economic and political change. :)

Manmohan, Rajiv were rubbish as orators.
Manmohan yes was rubbish. And I will take your word for Rajiv since I have never heard his speeches.

Also about Manmohan, he did two wrong things as PM : (a). Strengthen the hands of the new, technology industry managements to prevent formation of employee unions, (b). Call the militant Left as the country's most serious internal problem instead of the Right.

Also, like Trump - Modi connects with the audience by using cheap language - "Didi o Didi" is a recent example.
Trump I suppose looked at governing a country the same way that he ran his business - in the most capitalist way.

About Modi, most of his voters are middle class I think and that really shows the intellect level of a lot of our countrymen. Watch the two vids in this post of mine. About Modi's "Didi O Didi", that was cruder than some of Kapil Sharma's jokes.

and the left now has to wake up and put forward policies that will attract the middle class .
Yes, for a start, Kanhaiya, Shehla and Coms have to organize further.

And it you Indian who constantly mocking of China lacking free press and free media. Chinese never claim we have free press and we never deny controlling the media. But at least, we do not slap our face unlike Indian who brag to have free press and media but sanction twitter post and expect them to post selective news to suit their agenda.

Your India media is no different from China controlling post. Why ride on the high horse and humiliate yourself only? :enjoy:

Your system is not different from China but at least our authority government knows how to manage country properly unlike chaotic India.

When you yourself accept that you don't have the free press and media, then why do you come here to lecture others? why you don't keep your mouth shut and ask the the Dictator Xi to allow free media into the China ? you guys are third rate hypocrite. It is compulsory for you guys too see the propaganda movie of Dictator Xi and you come here ear and lacture others on freedom of speech and all this nonsense. we have to remove certain content as many Anti National people takes the advantage of our liberal policies and freedom of speech. If we do you like what China does , then we may not have to Ban them even ones in a year. All provocative pictures you post here and the article on failure of Indian government and Modi in personal by Indian media is because of free media only. Show me a single chinese article showing how Xi failed China? can you? This is a difference between the slave populaion called Chinese and free people like Indians.
