The devil’s alternative

From a Hartosh Singh Bal think piece in Caravan, this:

The danger of the current liberal consensus is that it seeks to speak against a new establishment without looking within. The compromises and corruption that liberals participated in during the UPA’s rule are what led us to Modi in the first place. These failings have not been addressed even though the UPA has been out of power for the past two years. The path away from Modi cannot lead us back to the Congress, the path away from Arnab Goswami cannot lead us back to Barkha Dutt.
