Politicians should mind their tonguesWe have seen many stalwarts in Indian politics. Leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Sastry, Jai Prakash Narayan, Vajpayee etc. set examples and they taught the country how a dignified politician should talk and behave. Those leaders struggled for the country and never criticised the opposition leaders. They always said that the differences are between the ideologies of the parties but not individuals.
But what we see and hear these days is entirely different. They never talk about issues. They talk about individuals only. They never talk about the ideologies of the parties but always criticise the people in the opposition only.
A person who is in the capacity of a Chief Minister of a State refers to the Prime Minister of the country and talks in a very cheap way in a public meeting. What they are teaching to the coming generations about decency in politics? One should mind their tongue. They should set an example to the coming generations so that the country will remember them as good politicians.
