The problem was coming for an year why did they not plan it?
The way things were going for an year now, it was quite expected that we had to act. And the way they were armed they were not going to go down tamely. They had already terrorised the populations and subdued them by killings and murders and blowing up over 300 schools and police stations. Not to forecast events and take precautionary measures is the height of mismanagement and poor governance.
The State Government had to be dismissed for bad governance, Governor's rule promulgated, emergency declared and forces moved in quickly under cover of darkness and people secured well in advance. The mass movement was expected. Contingency plans demanded alternative residences to be created in advance. The way it was done smacks of apathy at the state of affairs in the affected areas. If we had a more imaginative administration there was no way this catastrophe would have taken place.
Instead of making contingency plans they were wasting their time in negotiating with the devil who was not at all representative of the people. Who do you make peace with? With shadows weilding sophisticated weapons defying all laws? Why was so much luxury afforded to the terrorists? On top of it the powerless Sufi Mohammed addresses people and declares every thing illegal, even our constitution. Precious time was lost which is the main cause of todays tragedy afflicting three million people.
