Sansad TV
In this episode of the Perspective Prog. Based on ‘Dealing with the Mandate’. Supporters of Brazil’s far-right former President Jair Bolsonaro invaded and defaced the country’s Congress, presidential palace and Supreme Court on Sunday in a similar maaner as U.S. Capitol invasion two years ago by supporters of former US President Donald Trump. Rioters in Brazil left a trail of destruction, throwing furniture through the smashed windows of the presidential palace, flooding parts of Congress with a sprinkler system and ransacking ceremonial rooms in the Supreme Court. Bolsonaro had lost the Presidential election to Lula da Silva in October last year. Following Sunday’s violence Lula has announced a federal security intervention in Brasilia till 31st Jan. The former president, who has rarely spoken in public since losing the election refuted allegations and said peaceful demonstrations are part of democracy but invading and damaging public buildings crosses the line.
