Double standards

Double standards

Chidambaram's remarks about Mayavati wasting crores on statues which would otherwise have been used for poverty allievation is quite reasonable.

But, his boasting of good show by Congress in UP due to it's so called casteless approach, scathing attack on caste based PMK in Tamil Nadu and chiding of Mulayam in UP for following caste politics are questionable.

Mr.Chidambaram seems to have forgotten about his party's normal tactics of dividing people on various counts especially caste for it's vote gathering. Did he think that his recent apology to victims of Kandamal violence in Orissa without extending the same courtesy for the death of a Hindu saint is casteless act? Or did he think that his party's inaction over the humiliation of a Bangladeshi lady journalist by fanatic religious elements is true secularism?

It is better if Chidambaram sincerely tries to make his party follow an impartial approach in the matters concerning people in general without giving undue credence to minorities' sentiments even overlooking the law of the land, security of the nation and public ethics.
