The choice to secede too acknowledged!
Finally, Scotland voted to remain a part of the United Kingdom. I am impressed by the maturity with which the politicians and public of Scotland and the mainland Britain have conducted themselves during this time. British PM is on record for having ‘begged. the Scottish people for not leaving the United Kingdom. Similar requests were made by the opposition leader. There were no branding of the people wanting to separate as being anti national. It was taken as their right to decide what they wanted. This is what a democracy is and should be!
In India all hell would have broken and entire electronic media, led by official media, would have started a war on the state wanting seceding, there leaders would have been arrested and put behind bar in some other state far apart and state put under President’s rule with the approval of the Parliament! What a difference!
