In serious trouble

One has to feel sorry for P Chidambaram (PC). The Home Minister is dealing simultaneously with –

  1. Telengana agitation, with a raging students agitation in campuses where self-immolation is being used as a pressure tactic yet again
  2. Maoists in eastern India, who have been attacking the state machinery with impugnity
  3. Bomb blast in the German bakery in Pune, where the death toll just rose to 13

Of course, anti-insurgency operations in Kashmir continue as before, and every now and then, thousands of police personnel are busy securing cinemas, cricket grounds and the like, attempting to douse or control violent, vitriolic and competitive populist politics. As I said, one has to feel sorry for PC.
