No major media coverage, No comments by politicians, No discussion by public when military men killed in a terrorist attack! or When a farmer commits suicide, who are the backbone of a country.
One saves a country from enemies; one produces food to feed the country. It is impossible to survive or leave peacefully without those two people.
Unfortunately, youth and politicians are interested in them.
A lot of discussions, debate, media attention and protest by young people and politicians when a student, especially with a tag of Dalit, commit suicide. The story of so-called Dalit student Rohit Vemula’s death is creating waves in Hyderabad, which has already reached Delhi. Opposition party leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal, etc. met Rohit’s family and supported the protest. His death has already become a national news.
If youth and politicians do the same type of movement for farmers, probably, no farmer would commit suicide again.
Why is this difference?
Probably military men losing their life is part of their duty. That’s why no politician will react to it. Whereas farmers committing suicide is a boring news to youth, media and politicians. So they are not interested.
Whereas a committing suicide by a Dalit student is an excellent opportunity for politicians to put pressure or blame the government. Probably, this is called Dalit Student Power !!!
