Congress has decided to boycott television debates for next 30 days. In a healthy democracy, healthy public discourse is crucial. Without that, there is no democracy.
After huge defeat in recent Lok Sabha Elections, Congress party is going through big challenges within and outside the party and therefore it is understandable that party may initiate certain reforms but boycotting media cannot be the step in a democracy. Congress party is a political party and not private organisation and therefore it is duty of political parties to involve themselves into public discourse.
In my opinion, congress shall reconsider this decision at least for the sake of healthy democracy and to become a responsible opposition.
