In addition to the strong protests of the political parties, democratic movements,intellectuals, social activists etc. , the Supreme Court also made stringent remarks on the midnight attack of the police on the people in the Ramlila grounds. It asked the government to explain its behaviour in the matter.

The Prime Minister was compelled to state openly that the incident was unfortunate. But his justification that it was inevitable will not be accepted by any body. The Prime Minister who is supposed to defend the rights of the people, should have condemned the attack on the people. But leading a government fully immersed in corruption, the Prime Minister is unable to tolerate the protest against corruption. How unfortunate!
