If you do not know the truth just do not insult a sincere person saying corrupt politician. He is not a corrupt politician, he has not done rackets, or lived with public money. Foolish people just say what come to their tongue without really knowing the facts of a person. He never misused his position or office for corrupt things, but you people shield the real culprits and corrupt politicians. Do not tarnish the image of a Gentleman Politician.

He is not a corrupt Politicians but he was opportunist, to safe guard his position he will do anything. When Muslims are attached he said to the International Community that it is rumour and Katta Katha.

WE respect the dead person, but the fact remains that what these people have done to this country except they enjoy their life at the cost of the poor man on the street. This is the truth how ever much it is bitter.

He would have been a better person if he had remained as a Teacher. Hope the Almighty forgive him.

We must respect the dead. But, how unethically they behaved to curry favour and score browny points will not be forgotten. May he rest in peace !

He is no more. Please therefore do not say any negative comments which should said during his living era. What is whole purpose of saying to contrast than to say RIP.
