A common man is dismayed at the way ethics in politics have nose-dived in the country in the name of democracy.  H.D. Deve Gowda, who was once India’s Prime Minister, heads a splinter group in Karnataka and claims his party to be ‘secular’.  It is an open secret how shamelessly he had made his son H.D. Kumaraswamy Chief Minister with the support of BJP, a party wedded to divisive policy. When the time of handing over the power to the BJP came, he announced that his son has now realised the mistake of joining hands with BJP.  Then, after a lot of slanderous language between the JD (Secular) and BJP, Gowda makes a volte-face and offers to support the BJP to help its man become the first Chief Minister from a Hindutva party.  He says he is doing it to save his own party from getting split.  What a supreme sacrifice to save the ‘secular’ party!  What shame it is that the political parties are ditching their avowed principles and making bedfellows to anyone for the sake of power! Should we not be ashamed of electing our representatives who are feared to be prone to the lures of positions and money?
