End of India?

USSR was a superpower. It split into 15 countries in 1991.

What was once Yugoslavia is now seven countries.

India can end up like USSR and Yugoslavia.

Large parts of India are not under government control. There is trouble in Kashmir. Different groups extort money in North-East. They call it taxes. Muivah who wants sovereignty for Nagalim is given z plus security. Many districts are under Naxal control. Separatists are active in Punjab.

CRPF men have died repeatedly in Chhattisgarh. Paramilitary forces are unable to tackle Naxal menace.

Central government is unable to take a firm stand. It agreed to statehood for Telangana. When MPs and MLAs from other parts of Andhra Pradesh objected and resigned it went back on its word and appointed a commission. The problem of Telangana is not solved and occasionally there are violent incidents.

Those who cut off water supply were not punished. They got an assurance that their grievance will be looked into.

Since 1989 elections no party had absolute majority in Lok Sabha. That had resulted in weak governments. For strong governments India has to switch over to presidential system.

If India has to remain one country there is need to deal firmly with people who want sovereignty for some region and who indulge in blockades. Reservations in government jobs, institutions and legislatures are to be abolished.
