Dogviyay singh

It was most interesting to read the interview with Digvijay Singh on NDTV. Just in case the article gets deleted or expires, I am pasting an extract from the article here. Read the full article at http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/never-attack-family-digvijaya-singh-s-lesson-on-political-ethics-to-arvind-kejriwal-280101?pfrom=home-lateststories Mr Singh, speaking to NDTV said, "There are ethics in politics. Never attack family. The Congress never attacked (former PM) Atal Bihar Vajpayee's son-in-law Ranjan Bhattacharya or (senior BJP leader) L K Advani's son and daughter. Have we ever said a word against them? They have a private life of their own." When asked if the Congress brought their names up because there was nothing to ask of them, Mr Singh said, "We had enough evidence, but we never attacked them. Don't make me open my mouth about Ranjan Bhattacharya." During the prime ministership of Mr Vajpayee, it was often said that Mr Bhattacharya had a lot of influence over the prime minister's office and in government, despite having no official position. Most enlightening Mr. Singh. So basically what you are saying is "I will scratch your back, you scratch mine". It is shameful that political niceties and necessities have taken over the need to do good for the country. Not only is this minister and spokesman accepting that they condone corruption by bigwigs, they actually expect the same in return from other parties. God save India.
