Sunil Gavaskar Opens Up On Student Protests

“India has overcome many crises in the past and it will overcome this one as well.” Sunil Gavaskar equated the ongoing protests in India with the crisis of war it faced in 1965. The cricket great was speaking at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Memorial Lecture.

    Gavaskar is another scared bhakt of Modi. He should speak of the economy, unemployment, looting of funds from independent institutions, destroying the Aam admi’s hard earned money by making public institutions in buying defunct and worthless companies like the IDBI and many more instead of exposing his alliance to the ruling dispensation through his verbosity. He can be frank to say he wants to save his back at the cost of the common man.

    His speech is not as blunt as his cricket commentary. His speech was diplomatically hypocrite.

    Mr. Gavaskar your speech is like all famous people in these days that you are speaking very diplomatically.There was a time I admired you so much when at the time of the Mumbai riots,early in the morning you saw a person of a certain community being attacked you walked down from your house and rescued that person. Today you have everything and you stand to loose.So after knowing what all is going on you choose to take the safe out by looking the other way and not saying what has to be said.Its really sad.
