Re: 2021 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

Central intelligence agencies reportedly track plan hatched by three leaders of Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) from Belgium, UK to assassinate a farmer leader currently protesting at Delhi's border. Is this also a plan to make Shri. R Tikait run for cover? ;). Or give an excuse for GoI to get a foo...

It is possible you are right. There is so much uncertainty here. However, the following facts seem obvious even to me (and I admit I am not usually well versed with local politics even though I am from Haryana). 1. Tikait was pro-farm bill initially. 2. He then turned completely against it - no rea...
