It's never too late...

Hanging of Ajmal Kasab and Afzal Guru is definitely a good news for the people of India. It took several years for the Government to actually take the step, but I would say it is never too late to do the right thing.

I am highly inclined to believe this is purely a politically motivated decision. INC has been under fire from almost every corner of the society for various reason and there was no respite for the party in last several months. Azmal Kasab's hanging did bring is some controversy and I wonder if INC could reap anything out of it. At least this time it doesn't seem so. Our new president Pranabda is looking very much in mood of clearing the backlog, albeit with the permission, one would guess.

Should we see some more such decisions in coming days? It is about 18 months for the general elections (May 2014) and every political party is getting ready for the big battle. By taking such decisions, INC surely is removing weapons for BJP's arsenal and soon BJP would be found to struggle for issues. BJP might be tempted to go on backfoot and rely on the old gimmicks of 90's era, which would be disastrous for the country.

Let's see how BJP handles this.
