Possibility of a Coup in India

They say its impossible right? I don't agree. It was only some two years back that Indian Government went into panic over a false alarm.

Before we talk about the possibility of a coup d'état. Lets talk about a "Self-Coup". As per the ever (not so much) reliable wikipedia

A self-coup (or autocoup) is a form of putsch or coup d'état in which a nation's leader, despite having come to power through legal means, dissolves or renders powerless the national legislature and unlawfully assumes extraordinary powers, not granted under normal circumstances. Other measures taken may include annulling the nation's constitution and suspending civil courts. In most cases the head of government becomes a dictator.

What do you need to become a Hitler? Or a Mussolini? You need a strong right wing(check), an uninterested military(check), corrupt leaders who only care about themselves(check), ultra nationalists(check), an ideology written from scratch(almost), or highly distorted one(check), racism(check), propaganda machinery(check), world domination complex(check), a leader with complex unresolved issues and a potential psychopathic personality traits who is in power(check), enemy or perception of one(check), discredited previous government(check), a population deprived of their due rights(check), superpower level ability to sell dreams(check).

 Then there is Indian argument that India is too big for a coup to be staged. Is it? do we all not know what happened after Stalin and before Brezhnev in Soviet Union? What exactly would state Governments do in scenario of a coup? Rebel? Declare Independence? Refuse to recognise Central Government? They don't actually have a military or paramilitary force(states in India).

It is a reality that a coupe (soft coup at best) may be underway in world's most unstable nuclear power where some attest 40% of population lives without access to electricity and at least 50% of population is without toilets.

Recently their minister claimed their GDP Growth was 10.5% when another Hindu extremist, Bajpaee was in power. When the fact is, it was 6.5% when he assumed power(1998), at max it was 8.5% and at its lowest it was 3.8% during his rule.

Their Defense Minister has recently applauded the use of terror as a state policy. The Coup is already underway. Its time to stop the rise of another Hitler..This time in India
