Shaktiman police mount dies at 14, invoking horse sense of BJP, Cong leaders

Thu, Apr 21, 2016, 12:38 PM
Uttarakhand Police horse, Shaktiman, which became a legend for the wrong reasons, died on Thursday. The horse was allegedly flogged by a BJP legislator, Ganesh Joshi, as a result of which it lost a leg.

Shktiman had since been nursed back to health, but it had succumbed to its age at the age of 14, one month after the flogging.

Shaktiman had since become as famous as Maharana Pratap of Chittour's Chetak, not fighting a single battle, but by virtue of all other parties heaping blame on the BJP MLA for his alleged cruelty to the horse.

That the people show a lot of horse sense is evident from Shaktiman.

Ganesh Joshi too is endowed with a lot of horse sense. Fighting off the blame, he owed to cut his leg off, like Shaktiman's leg had to be amputated owing to the flogging, if he were proved guilty of beating Shaktiman badly. He said `I'm not at fault' for Shaktiman's death.

The Congress government in limbo in Uttarakhand would leave no stone to beat the BJP with. Its spokesman Randeep Surjewala indeed shows the height of horse sense, when he tweets, `Like Modiji murdered democracy, a BJP MLA made fatal attack on Shaktiman. Unfortunate.'
