DO STREET DEMONSTRATIONS REFLECT PUBLIC OPINION ?
There are around 7 crore people in Tamil Nadu and very very few people participate in these demonstrations. Even in the case of government staff or bank staff or teachers, only a few people demonstrate on the street and many of them stay indoor perhaps, enjoying the “holiday”.
In some cases, it is also said that the demonstrators leave the place after the media photographers leave.
It is naïve to think that these street demonstrations reflect public opinion. Most of the people silently and helplessly watch as the demonstrators block the roads or stone the buses.
Are we getting into a state of mob rule where a few politicians and activists are the main players.
