Consensus of politics in India
Idealism AND ethics/norms of democracy
Politics of opportunism and immorality

sacrifice idealism, value based politics for their vested interests
superseding all ethics/norms of democracy.
Parties join hands for some profit
Might is right: the Indian politicians message to citizens
collectively and individually by their arbitrary acts

of profit issue

"In a poem Vajpee ji penned on his birthday in 1993, he wrote:
‘‘Mujhe door ka dikhayi deta hai/ Main deewar par likha padh sakta
hoon/ Magar haath ki rekhayen nahin padhta (I cannot read the palm,
but I can see distant events, I can read the writing on the
wall).’’ The consequences are likely to repeat for BJP

the statement, Anil Ambani said, ‘‘ It is my firm view that in
public life one must uphold the highest standards of transparency,
propriety and ethics and avoid any possibility of controversy,

NEW DELHI: Congress President Sonia Gandhi has said that party MPs
should not get emotional over her resignation from the Lok Sabha and
means that others need to follow high moral grounds and politics of
sacrifice except her (Sonia ji)-IS IT NOT A DRAMA?
The apprehensions expressed by many, including Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh, notwithstanding, this was to be BJP president
Rajnath Singh’s glory hour. Set to board the rath for his yatra
along with L K Advani on April 6, he was looking to turn a corner in
his own political journey. But Sonia Gandhi’s resignation has turned
the spotlight away. Talking to Pradeep Kaushal, however, Rajnath
insists people can tell a phoney sacrifice from a real one:
party is clean when it comes to office of profit. Why so much fuss
First asking that Sonia must resign then criticizing for the
same-What a double standard?
NEW DELHI: BJP on Thursday slammed Congress President Sonia Gandhi's
decision to resign as MP and chairperson of National Advisory
Council on CMP as a "desperate attempt to save her face after being
caught red handed trying to subvert Constitution and Parliament".
"Politics of revenge has recoiled back and Sonia Gandhi has become a
victim of her own conspiracy. This grand standing will not help,"
party General Secretary Arun Jaitley said.
Besides Chatterjee, nine other CPM MPs face petitions for
disqualification. The issue assumed importance in the light of
petitions against Sonia Gandhi, who, however, stole the Opposition
thunder by resigning from both her Lok Sabha seat and
Chairpersonship of National Advisory Council.
