On #ConstitutionDay2020, let's go back to Constituent Assembly Debates when fiscal provisions of the Constitution were debated. Last 5 minutes of the day were remaining & the President asked if anyone wants to speak. One Mr. K. Santhanam seized the opportunity. (1/n)
He made an important point on the financial relation b/w Centre & States. As if having a premonition, he made the famous "beggars at the door of the Centre" remark. Of course, the context was different but the concerns remain relevant even today - GST, tax devolution, etc. (2/n)
Recent difficulties faced by States are actually forcing the States to be "beggars at the door of the Centre". Santhanam's prophecy has been fulfilled. What was opposed during the debates has been made part of the working of the constitution now.

So on this #ConstitutionDay what do we see :
1. Nearly 10 lakh people in JK denied rights to access 4G internet despite SC pronouncements on proportionality principle.
2. Discussions about bringing State monitoring over citizens' decisions to choose life partner and religion.
3. A Supreme Court which is getting increasingly wary of holding the executive to account to the constitution.
4. Increased state intolerance towards citizen movements and protests. Use of sedition, NSA, UAPA to crack down dissent.
5. Parliament which acts like a rubber stamp passing laws without effective discussions.
6. Increased impunity for hate speech against minorities.
7. Election Commission not doing anything to control brazen communal propaganda in elections.

I am listening to the White House Conference on American History and it is batshit crazy. This is absolutely nuts.
A taste from Peter Wood on the protests: “Riots appear to be planned, staffed, scheduled for nights on end. These are not spontaneous, … but well staged … they run according to a well-rehearsed script. Who rights that script? The answer is obvious.” Then he blamed professors.
Quotes are not exact, sorry. Double check them all.

The moderator is Larry Arn, who runs Hillsdale College.
