On Saturday, the fourth of December 2021, in Nagaland’s Mon district, a group of eight coal miners, returning home on a pick-out truck after days of mining suddenly came under indiscriminate firing, killing six on the spot, including the driver and seriously injuring two others. Indian Army’s elite unit, the 21st Para Special Forces Regiment, mistook the civilian miners for armed militants of NSCN (K) and ambushed them on the road between Oting and the nearby village of Tiru, near the international Indo-Myanmar border. The Army later claimed that they had laid the ambush for armed militants, acting on intelligence inputs of movement of NSCN (K) cadres in the district.

It was the vision and concept of Modi to make the Kashi Vishwanath temple more splendid and grand. Addressing mammoth gathering on the historic occasion, the Prime Minister urged Indians to make three resolutions for the sake of the country: Swachhta (cleanliness), Srijan (creation), and continuous efforts for Aatmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India).

Does the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement on repealing all three farm reform laws with a profound apology to the farmers would pose a setback to the Central Government’s subsequent reforms? In India, where a large number of farmers are either small or marginal, what the nation needed was breathing time to allow farms to consolidate and provide the rest of the economy adequate time to generate employment to absorb excess farm labour.  Interestingly, the Prime Minister chose the birthday of Guru Gobind Singh to make his announcement. Does that look like a tactical retreat or a meek surrender and could there be any snowballing effect on his decision, politically, as well as economically?
