Who should own responsibility for this?Not in a mood to join in any of the discussions these days due to personal reasons but one scrolling on the TV news channels made me to return to this Forum. Felt a lot and shocked to know that the Environmental activist G D Agarwal died of cardiac failure at AIIMS Roorkee. He was on a 'Hunger strike' for 111 days in favour of a movement for the 'Clean Ganga' operation. The great man sacrificed his life for a cause and may his soul rest in peace!
But who should own responsibility for this? Who allowed him to continue the Hunger strike for such a long period? Why none of the great Indian politicians got involved to end his fast? Had he been a leader belonging to a Party or a religion or a community, did the things have been different? What the Government machinery was doing? Can the bureaucrats escape from the responsibility by simply throwing the ball into the court of the ruling party or the opposition? What is happening?
