Just see how badly the level and character of politics has gone down these days. Though everybody know that its usualley called the last game of a scoundrels. People of the country are constantly reducing their faith in politicians as their character and style of functioning is not only allegedly uncalled for but dubious as well. It’s not that all politicians are bad, immoral or corrupt.
There are good, ethical and principled politicians as well but their number is negligible or comparitively less as compared to those with allegedly dubious nature or character these days and there is literally abundance of those politicians who can be counted in the dubious catagory. This speaks of the degrading standards of principled, transparent, honest and morally oriented politicians right from the top echelons of power to the lowest ebb. There is no dearth of politicians with criminal backgrounds, having number of FIRs registered against them in cases pertaining to murders, corruption, involvement in sexual scandals, riots, scams, communal flare ups and so on and so forth. And what is more worrisome is the fact that they are are decorating the prestige of our state and central legislatures as well to a certain percentage.
Anyways, what is being said here is nothing unusual, the entire nation knows about it. But what would we say when our such future KARNDHAARS, our inspirational leaders laugh and smile while paying homage to the deadly victims of riots in the country. This seems to be very interesting though shocking and anguishing too.
The news pertains to the incident of homage paying to one of the deceased of Kasganj riots and is carried in several newspapers of UP including one of the best selling Hindi Daily called Dainik Jagran. The title of the news is: The shamlessness has crossed limits: Even in the meeting to pay heartfelt tributes, the BJPites kept laughing.
This is the incident of Meerut where a SHRADHANJALI SABHA , meeting to pay respectful tributes to a young man who unfortunately died in Kasganj riots was organised . In the meeting organised by the lical unit of BJP, a demand for sanctioning 50 lakh Rupees of compensation for the family of the deceased was made from the state government led by chief minister Yogi Aditya Nath. The condolense meeting was organised at Chipi Tank Shiv Park in Meerut.
Those who joined this condolense meeting prominently included the Meerut Cantt MLA Satya Prakash Aggrawal, President of the Meerut Sanyukt Vyapar Sangh Navin Gupta, Vijendra Aggrawal, Arun Vashisht and Neeraj Tyagi etc.
But to the utter dismay, surprise and shock of all those present : these responsible leaders were literally laughing while paying their so called heartfelt tributes to the deceased died in the Kasganj riots. Instead of exhibiting their genuine shock, grief and anguish being the responsible citizen and an elected representative the lawmaker alongwith the other local leaders were seen laughing as if its not a condolense meeting but an ocsssion of celebration. What a shocking mockery.
Not only this but to keep a two minutes silence in honour of the deceased the organisers have to do tremendous efforts. This is the fate of the deceased in the eyes of these politicians belonging to the ruling political party at the centre and in the largest state of the country Uttar Pradesh.
What a hypocrisy. Shocking to say so. The Dainik Jagran picture unambiguously shows these leaders in laughing posture while lightening the lamp in honour of the deceased to express their grief and tributes towards a dead man. Is this the decency and culture we are inculcating in us ? Shame.
