If I were to maintain a list of “Brain-dead Ideas advocated by Indian Ministers”, Renuka Chowdhary’s call for “Pub Bharo“ would end up right at the top. Here’s why:
- Let us start off with the premise that the call was made to deter the so called moral police from creating trouble on Valentines Day. since that’s the only sensible premise I have got here.
- Now, since I cannot deterministically predict what the moral police is going to do, and neither do I think Ms Chowdhary can, there is a possibility that the moral police does decide to create trouble.
- Does Ms Chowdhary, a Union minister, have some plan B regarding the security of all these people who have “Bharo”ed the pubs? As, in, can she assure it? In my opinion, NO.
- So is she hinting the following?
- “All ye young boys and girls. Go fill up the pubs. That should deter the moral police. If it doesn’t, then I am sorry, I cannot assure your security and safety. But since you have “bharo”ed the pubs, you have higher numbers on your side. So take law into your own hands and teach these moral police a good lesson.”
Responsible thoughts to come from a union minister, no?
