Right-Left polarization in India

One of the obvious fallout of right-wing government in India is the legitimacy of right-wing ideas. This has forced many to take clear stance on right and left wing ideas and support or oppose hypocrites who tend to fall in those two categories.

The Times Now TV presenter, Arnab Goswami, was nothing more than a cacophonous joker on Indian TV but now he has gained more weight-age as a spokesperson of right-wingers. Instead of laughing at him, it has become necessary to oppose him. On the other hand, Barkha Dutt, a nuisance from feudal liberals (privileged with a sense of entitlement but not a bigot), is championing the leftist cause. It's just frustrating.
