Truth becomes a victim of sycophancy

The PTI report filed on chindu website reports a complete shutdown.
The Hindu News Update Service
Khannabal (J&K) (PTI) A complete shutdown was observed in Anantnag and Pulwama districts of Kashmir on Monday in protest against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's election rallies there in support of party ally National Conference's candidate from Anantnag parliamentary constituency.

Shops and business establishments, educational institutions and some of the government offices remained closed in the two south Kashmir districts in response to the call given by Chairman of hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

Public and private transport also remained off the roads in the districts where tight security was in place in view of Mr. Gandhi's visit.
The mandatory report eulogizing Rahul Gandhi says the call for bandh was a total failure.

People in general ignored the strike called by hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani to protest against Mr. Gandhi’s visit. Though in some areas shops were closed, normal life was largely unaffected with vehicles plying on the roads, and shops and business establishments remaining open.

We, who have been following chindu for long enough, know which report to trust.

"We don't have to be palanquin-bearers for anyone..."

Thus spake comrade Karat.

Oh, boy. That's the ultimate in self-respect declaration, if ever there was need for one.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) foresees a realignment of political forces after the Lok Sabha elections in favour of the Third Front and rules out its supporting the Congress in government formation as it does not want to be that party's "palanquin-bearer."

With great pride and deemed-privilege our comrades played "palanquin-bearers", that too bearing a phoren palanquin.
Suddenly now, some native wisdom has revealed itself!
