#StopTerrorPolitics

It is important to ask tough questions of the government of the day. But when we will learn that as elected representatives of the people the responsibility does not end with merely asking questions and running away scoring a few brownie points. Indian politicians lack the culture of offering solutions in larger interest and rarely are able to rise above petty predictable party lines. Post 9/11, the US was able to stitch a formidable national response to the terror curse. This happened primarily because the response did not become a victim of narrow politicking. It is incumbent upon the government of the day to be able to evolve a unified strategy to thwart terror from raising its ugly head again and again. All party meeting business is at best a photo-op. Mitigating a terror threat calls for some serious and sincere behind-the-scene work.  Any takers?
