This is how cheap we can get – to fool the masses with empty words, and score brownie points by sheer flattery.
Our respected Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known for citing false records and facts and figures; of using wrong quotations for wrong referents. But he never seems to learn. This is another glaring blunder.
He compares Punjab’s Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal to South Africa’s national icon and freedom fighter Nelson Mandela.
Now tell me, what are the similarities? Just being jailed for two decades or more? Or is there is a just cause behind it?
Well, none questions Nelson Mandela’s cause and fight. His life is his message. The late leader has done everything for his nation and the world. All in non-violent ways. But Badal, the politician? For whose sake did he go to jail and whom did he liberate? It could not be more ridiculous.
