@prashantgarg_ I think LC is justified if you announce to the people to leave (on genuine grounds) and they don’t give a damn.

@prashantgarg_ Well, I was not at the scene? Were you there? If yes, I’d like to know more.

@prashantgarg_ While I am against corruption/black money, I am indifferent towards the protests/fasts. Intricacies of d demands r beyond me.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to prashantgarg_

@prashantgarg_ I wont categorise lathi charge as violence or war. It is just a mechanism of executives to uphold the law.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to prashantgarg_

@aroradush Then there are people with weak backs/spine or weak bones. Even a normal blow can be dangerous, but you can’t blame the police.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush On a side note, I like the difference of opinion we share. :)

@aroradush LCs will definitely result in some accidents. Unavoidable. I would expect a much worse if police went on in a harsh manner.

via Twitter for Mac

@aroradush Also I feel that the police really has not been very harsh. Just 4 got critically injured out of about a lakh who were dispersed.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush If they announce you to disperse (& I assume, they have a good reason for dat)& crowd doesn’t give a damn, what to do? @prernao2

@aroradush I don’t think that lc is wrong as long as it is justified. I’d say expect lc if you r driven by blind faith on a baba. @prernao2

@aroradush Even women lines at ticket counters make sense, but there should be a method to attend both lines simultaneously in d right order

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush Yes, I won’t mind that. Have it in a proportional frequency though.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush Reserving seats don’t help in that respect. Reserving a coach (like they did in metro) makes sense.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush I whole heartedly support “Please offer this seat to someone who needs it more than you.”

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush Same reason I do not like reservation of seats in the bus for women. Having less physical strength, does’t mean they can’t stand.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush I say their physical strength is proportional to their requirements. I don’t buy that they experience a greater degree of pain.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to aroradush

@aroradush Well that was not intended at you actually :p. Just sick of the tone of accusation by all non-UPA entities.
