    Maybe pretty soon you will find out about the court
    case against him in Karnataka. He is better out of there.
    He is not leaving to let younger people in, politics is the last
    place you get young people especially in the higher jobs.He has been accused of a scam and the verdict is not out.

    THAT is big news, 'Cos in our part of the land it does not happen. If it does there is a catch in it.

    Nice of him to resign before getting kicked out. If only our MPs could also emulate.

    It is always better to go on your own when you know that you are about to be kicked out anyway. But, our politicians are made of stener stuff and they wait until kicked out and even then refuse to move. Typical frogs.

    Indian constitutional and judicial discipline is of the highest order, though their politicians attempt to break rules all the time. Right now, Ministers and MPs are on the mat as exposed by NDTV the powereful independent TV channel 24/7 of land scams etc, all with documented proof. If only we had a similar channel it will expose malpractices but above all unite people of different languages and cultures as they doo in their public fora and discussions when one can talk in any language.
