Side-lining Oppn-leaders by government not good for ruling party

Dear Editor,

Various TV-channels including those considered to be pro-government have rightly criticised giving Congress President seat in sixth row for Republic Day parade on 26.01.2018 rather than usual practice of placing in first row during first three Republic Days in BJP-regime. Even if argument of BJP Presidents not given place in first row during UPA regime is true, even then healthy tradition started by BJP if been maintained would have saved central government and ruling party from criticism even including from BJP-admirers. However it was good that Prime Minister was seen exchanging sweet notes with Congress President at At-Home held later at Rashtrapati Bhawan.

It was not the first time that the central government at the centre side-lines its opponents like was done by not inviting Delhi Chief Minister at inaugural of metro-line between Botanical Garden (Noida-UP) and Kalkaji (Delhi) even though Delhi government is partner in the project.

Even if argument of the function having been organised by UP government is considered, same was repeated by not making Delhi Chief Minister part of foundation-stone laying ceremony presided by Delhi Lt Governor on 23.01.2018 for flyover and roads to be built by central agency CPWD at Mahipalpur (Delhi).

Such things are not only bad for healthy democratic traditions, but make ruling party face unnecessary criticism for petty issues like of protocol giving public-sympathy to opposition.
