As an independent man without any political affiliation even now also he can approach the PM and make him to hear his voice. Why he had not attempted for that.
Is it correct for a man of that stature to talk like this that too in an educational institution where all young and enthusiastic people were present? Is it not going to raise the tempers of the students when a big man is talking about caste and religion. But he never cared to give even a single incident happened as an evidence for his feelings.
I take them as baseless and unnecessary remarks to get his image as a noble man spoiled.
Differences in political ideology and religions are responsible for hate, intolerance and conflicts in our country. "Ideology" is a dangerous word. It hurts many.
Protection of minority community is the responsibility of the majority community, at the same time appeasement of minorities at the expense of majority community is not at all accepted.
"Sabka saath Sabka Vikas" should be the programme.
It is ridiculous to say today that a particular group is suffering. In fact all the groups are enjoying with the money given by their supporters.
If we say that an orphan is suffering or a handicapped person is suffering or a begger is suffering then there is some essence in that statement.
As on today I do not see any minority in this country. Even the reserved class is not a minority as they are having some priviledges in getting service and job so actually they are the majority. So when there are no minority groups in this country the question of suffering does not arise.

However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has replied in an excellent and dignified manner. He said that the former Vice-President had worked in middle-eastern countries as a member of IFS. After retirement, his work was confined to a particular group or community. However, during last ten years, he had to work as per Constitution and so he (the former Vice-President) faced some difficulty. Now he would again go back to the group whom he served for such a long time. Dignified reply with sarcasm.
Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.
Now it is amply clear that he was not deserving the position he was holding and got it only because of the compulsions of choice under permutation and combinations of religion,geography etc.
He could have laid down office in a more befitting manner worthy of respect to the position he held. Now he has belittled himself and will remain so in the history and in people's minds.

Even this challenging situation would ease
