Every person has right to crack jokes. However, a person like Vajpayee should think twice before ‘joking’. After losing the post of PM, it seems that he has lost his sense of humour. He is giving contradictory statements everyday whether it is on Modi or his retirement. He is fast losing credibility. The most irritating thing is that precious national time is lost in debates because one tends to believe his statements.
