Unfortunately, ethics has ceased to be the language of losers in Indian politics.
TRS, the winner, claims this very acting of poaching fish in neighbour’s pond as democratic. Congress denounces it as ‘Operation Aakarsh’ and puts the entire blame on the Chief Minister, K.Chandrasekhara Rao.
Gone are the days, when TRS played the loser and cried foul. Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy too played the same trick when he was the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. He wooed legislators from TRS. Leaving ethics aside, defection is nothing but reversing the peoples’ mandate.
