Doublespeak !!!

The sordid political drama enacted in Karnataka by the so called "humble farmer" Mr.H.D.Devegowda is a pointer to the depths to which politics has sunk.In a nation where people refer to the age old saying of "pran jaye par vachan na jaye" in everyday conversation ,the kind of political somersaults done by Dewegowda and company leaves one speechless.One day the father and son say something and the very next day they contradict themselves.One just hopes that the electorate teaches the humble farmer a lesson to remember in the upcoming elections.It is the widespread illiteracy and apathy of voters towards democracy which allows leaders like them to get away with murder and make a virtue out of necesity.For Mr.Devegowda BJP was not communal till it was extending support to them and his son Kumaraswamy was CM but as soon as it was their turn to do the same ,suddenly BJP became communal and what not.
