The nation witnessed a never before situation with elected representatives of a state protesting against the government of the day.
It evoked responses that spanned the entire range of emotions from the dismissive to outrage.
The ways of public discourse and the methods and strategies of venting protest seem to be under great transformation. The old rules of the game have been thrown out of the arena.
The powers that be have been shaken out of their comfort zones by these unconventional methods.
‘Anarchy’ was a term much bandied about. ‘Unconstitutional’ was this form of protest dubbed.
Notwithstanding what terminology is attributed to this situation or the legitimacy of this strategy, the one thing that stands out is that public acceptance of the morass that governance has set into is wearing thin.
What is being demanded is visible tangible change in the system that touches the man on the street in his daily life.
