The Modi team, during the 2014 election campaign, promised "minimum government, maximum governance". But in the last three years, we have seen a combination of judicial and executive action at state and central levels, many of which have been accused of infringing people's personal liberty. Elements of the government are trying to control what we eat, drink, watch and even speak. After BJP's recent victory in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, the re-emergence of anti-Romeo squads and increased brazenness of 'gau-rakshaks' or cow vigilantes have raised many questions. On this edition of We The People, we ask: Is India now a state of prohibition? Has the government gone too far by dictating how the free citizen of India should behave? Is the state playing a bigger role in our lives than we would like?
