The Muhammad bin Tughlaq of Lakshadweep
The Administrator of Lakshadweep, Praful Patel, has made many proposals relating to the Islands.
There is wide opposition to these proposals by the islanders and others
Before any proposal is implemented there should be wide consultation with the people of Lakshadweep. That is the democratic way.
In a democracy the peoples wishes must be taken into account, but it seems the Administrator is ignoring them, and behaving like an autocratic Mohammed bin Tughluq.
