    I read so many reactions from Indians in India always blaming the govt for everything. It's like you want to see them wear their underwear on the outside and fly round w/ a cape being omnipotent like superman.


    • Mumbai police boats laying around - boo hoo the central Indian govt sucks
    • China builds a dam - boo hoo the central Indian govt sucks
    • same mumbai locations hit 3 times and no protection- boo hoo the central Indian govt sucks

    How many of you know what the role of the central govt is vs. say a state's responsibility or the responsibility of another local arm?

    Mumbai Police is Govt. of Maharashtra's headache, both India and Bangladesh should head to UN with the China dam issue, government of India needs to provide better intelligence assistance to government of Maharashtra as far as terror emenating from Pakistan goes.

    I am sorry. I didnt get the intention of this thread. Is it supposed to open eyes of members here? or is it hinting to shift the blame of recent events away from GOI?

    it is to understand how many know the role and function of the central govt, its powers and limitations. if there is a change in the weather, not to blame it on the central govt. there is no shifting of any blame as mumbai attacks is the fault of the state govt and the police - not central govt. central govt provides resources ( cash, arms , intelligence if at all on a national level). mumbai govt knew that these places were hit not once but multiple times and for the life of me I don't know why central govt gets blamed for the local govt screw ups.

    beyond that, it is my observation that Indians tend to point fingers too much at the govt. where it becomes dangerous to be so reliant- this finger pointing in india leads to attacks because the public goes about with blinders on expecting the central govt to be superman

    Why do the local business merchants not be the eyes and ears of what happens on their street daily? the time square bomber in the US was discovered because of the local merchants / vendors were aware and vigilant.- the govt did not discover that bomber or have intelligence on it. .

    Its a GOI's responsibility to obtain every sort of intelligence input through its various instrumental organizations. Central Government is responsible & so is state government.

    Yeah maybe Indians tend to point fingers at government. They pay govt to keep them safe & when same mistakes are repeated every time, they have every right to point fingers. Comparing US & India on level of local public support is ridiculous. US has experienced far less attacks than India. They do not have comparable population density nor demographic relevance.

    Security is state govt's responsibility.

    So, if GOI thinks the state govt is unable to stop the attacks on a particular state or city they should invoke article 356 on the said state. in this case Maharashtra.

    If it is GOI's responsibility, they should introspect where and why they were unable to stop the attack? just by shooting from mouth and blaming everyone from IM to RSS will not solve the problem and it will expose our govt's inability to deal with such situation..
