How low can politics get ?

Was shocked to read about this incident in Hyderabad on NDTV.com :

As an ambulance came to a halt outside Union Minister A Narendra's official residence in Hyderabad, Congress workers, some of them even dressed in medical attire, emerged shouting slogans.

They claimed they had come to admit Narendra to a mental asylum for his statements against the Congress leadership.With a week to go for the municipal elections in the state, friends have turned foes and the Congress and the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) are training their guns on each other.Politics in Andhra Pradesh has truly hit a new low.

As I read this report , I remembered French philosopher Voltaire's famous quote , "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"
Perhaps , I am expecting too much .........


  • Why only AP? Look at all the states..eveywhere it sucks.!

    Take TN - Today Mr. Karunanidhi has said that to stop Naxalism one should improve the living conditions of those people. Wonder what he was doing while he was on power?
