Kerala is the hub of harthals. Harthal is imposed on flimsy grounds and on ridiculous reasoning forcing people into undue hardships and inflicting great loss and damage to the country. It serves no purpose other than personal gain for a minority but retards the economic growth of the nation.
People irrespective of their political affiliations despise and hate harthals. They vociferously fight against it but their voice is drowned by the organized might of its sponsors. Adding insult to injury, the people are asked to cooperate to get them harassed! The arrogance and contempt for the people reaching its pinnacle!
The only way to extirpate this evil before it exterminates us is to ostracize the persons calling harthals. Boycott all the functions attended by them. Show the power of people in the only place they can, in elections, and defeat them ruthlessly.
Responsible media have a lot to do. Black out all their functions and statements. Indian Express has spearheaded the fight against harthal and they can lead the lot.
Remember our fight is for our survival
