Had to write this letter to the editor to get some of the irritation caused by the photographs of our political leaders speaking at the rally in support of anti corruption movement, out of my system.
It was disgusting to see our BJP leaders taking part in the anti corruption rally at Azad Maidan. What hypocrisy! I appreciate their guts making long speeches and promises against corruption while being part of the party which is famous for providing one of the most corrupt governments Karnataka has seen.
If they are sincere to the movement, they should participate only as citizens without mentioning their party. If they are sincere to the party they should issue a disclaimer stating that they are doing their best to get as much political mileage as possible out of the popular movement, and that their words should not be taken at face value.
