A PDP minister has made a revelation about the role of Village Defence Committees having been ended with the end of militancy threat, notwithstanding huge Central sums being spent on security related drill and deployment of multi-tier security to ministers, political workers, bureaucrats and other vulnerable segments. The BJP, partner in the ministry, however, does not buy this argument and says the VDCs should continue.
Is it a matter of pride or shame for the two coalition partners to play to galleries and to continue in the government despite having divergence on key issues of governance?
