Tonight on The Buck Stops Here:
Iron Lady vs 'draconian' Army law
40 hours of freedom is all Manipuri activist Irom Sharmila got before she was picked up by police women, kicking and shouting, and incarcerated in the same room that has been her home for more than a decade. The state government says she was trying to commit suicide by returning to her fast. We ask, is it time to bite the bullet on Armed Forces Special Powers Act or AFSPA?
Prohibiting alcohol - futile exercise?
Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy announced today that nearly 300 bars in non-five-star hotels will have to close down straight away with the government deciding to revoke their licenses. Kerala has India's highest annual per-capita alcohol consumption: 8.3 litres, according to some estimate. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: Can prohibition realistically be enforced?
