Father of Nation belittled:

Be it any person or some particular forum, they are known the way they behave. Their conduct is their face. Supporters of Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party staged a dharna at Phool Bagh, Kanpur (U.P.,India) coinciding it with the dharna and demonstration conducted by Kejriwal himself the Chief Minister of Delhi at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, against the policies of the Government of India. The venue chosen for the purpose at Kanpur was the platform of Mahatma Gandhi’s large statue at Phool Bagh. As a mark of respect for the father of Nation, people visiting there invariably go barefooted. They too removed their shoes as a ritual but the very huge heap of theirs fully encircled the statue itself. When pointed out by the media persons present there, the supporters of AAP did realise the lapse on their part denying that there was any intention to show any disrespect to Bapu, the father of Nation. That is how people in politics behave. The damage was already caused and no amount of any kind of realisation could undo it. There is a large number of political parties in the country and they quite often select Gandhi’s statue as the convenient ground for staging their dharnas and rallies with an attempt to spread a message to the public as if they were in the same spirit as Gandhi’s satyagrah was. Imitation of the type like this is a sheer hypocrisy as a Messiah of his stature is born once in thousands of years and is much beyond any copying. Even a slightest possible attempt to show him any disrespect is not pardonable and must be condemned outright
