Cops and robbers: Will the real police please stand up?

Will the real police please stand up?

Volte face: Will the real police please stand up?

So, finally, after dragging its feet long enough to leave unpleasant skid marks all over its poll prospects, the BJP government in Karnataka has reacted to the Sri Rama Sene’s threat to disrupt Valentine’s Day revellers from celebrating.

Police Commissioner Shankar M Bidari told media yesterday that the police will take “stringent action” against those who prevent couples from observing Valentine’s Day. Whether the police action will continue after February 14 we do not know. Interesting volte-face from the keepers of the law who, just last year, had clamped the shutters on Bangalore’s night life by banning dancing, live music performances, drinking after 11 pm, et cetera, et cetera.

Now, will the real moral police please stand up?
