An absolutely useless government, not willing to stop violence

Today is the day of the Gujjar called jam in Delhi, and watching it makes me mad with rage against thus useless incompetent government that we have. How can we have a government that is so spineless; this is a public forum so I am controlling my language, but I no longer believe that the Congress party is fit or has the ability to provide any form of governance.
There are widespread reports and visual information on the TV, with so many news channels, about various routes in Delhi getting blocked. These have been blocked for now atleast 4-5 hours with a massive number of commuters getting stuck everywhere. They are starting to burn buses, and break private vehicles for most of the routes to and fro from Delhi. So, for example, routes to Ghaziabad, Noida, Faridabad, Gurgaon, etc are blocked, and people are apprehensive with fear.
And what do we see ? We see these hooligans burning buses, standing in the middle of the road, and the useless inept police standing at the side. Police in many cases are letting buses burn, and are just warning people to avoid these troublesome scenes. Water cannons are used to put out the fires, and on the demonstrators, but that is the extent of police action, no more. No lathicharge, no action to control these thugs, no action to protect public and private property. Mostly, the police are adopting a watch and watch action, letting them maybe burn out. Channels are reporting that police have been told to take minimum action.
Is this the government and authorities to whom we trust to ensure safety? Yes, but one can see this absolutely useless government maybe trying not to take too much action against these thugs because they are a big community, and would not want to face political heat. This is not hard to believe, and a large number of people would easily accept that this .... government can take any action as long as it does not affect them politically.
This is the national capital, the center of a country that wants to be accepted as a rapidly advancing country, and it is an absolute shame that we buckle down to such crass mass action, instead of ensuring the maintenance of law and order, the primary responsibility of the government. What sort of message does this pass? If you are a big community, you can do what you want since the govt will be fearful of getting hurt politically. No matter that in this case, the aam admi definitely gets hurt, farmers produce rots because transport is blocked, people have to spend day and nights in this heat at bus and railway stations because transport is blocked. God help this country if we have such useless politicans. Shame on you Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi, is this the form of politics that you trying to advocate?
