It seems our “old” politicians have now become modern and westernized. Our Indian tradition speaks of long tasting relationships, but the way the BSP and BJP are uniting and splitting with each other in recent years only reminds us of the modern ways of marrying, divorcing and then remarrying, as is the practice in the West. Politics has dipped to such a low that each exponent is only focusing on how to maximize his or her own profits. These politicians are not concerned about the voters’ plight at all. We, as voters, should now think twice before casting our precious votes for such candidates.
