Rajnath’s rhetoric

September 27 2015

Central Home Minister Rajnath Singh was attending a meeting with CRPF commandos, and the context was Bihar’s Assembly elections. The meeting was also to decide how many CRPF troops were to be freed for the Bihar elections, be they in Jammu and Kashmir or Chattisgarh. Addressing the commandos, Singh rightly told them to ask their jawans to carry out their duties without any fear, so that the elections can be carried out in a fearless manner – but that they didn’t need to be over-excited about it either. It is worth mentioning here that on the polling day, it is these Central Reserve Police Force jawans who have control over the polling booths rather than Bihar Police, who may have a significant role to play in setting voting trends.
