The government might have changed in Jammu and Kashmir but not the attitude of the ruling elite, which continues to remain the same. A forester has become the latest victim of ‘arrogance of power’ when an aide of a powerful minister bestowed him ‘honour’ in terms of a slap. His sin was to fence the forest land to save it from chronic grabbers.
Is it a matter of pride or shame for all those unscrupulous elements, donning the mantle of governance, to treat the common people including hapless public servants as second class citizens, who are required to act as per their whims and fancies?
