It was the birthday of the great revolutionary and freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on the last 23rd January. Lok Sabha secretariat ritually organises the commemoration ceremony of the legendary freedom fighters in the Central Hall of the Parliament, New Delhi, and so was done to observe the birthday of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. As a matter of utter chagrin, none of the celebrities except L.K. Advani turned up on the occasion. Taken together there are 775 Members of Parliament from Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha out of which only four including L.K. Advani attended the function. Where were others? They, excepting a few who might have been on serious national business, were either enjoying their life or were busy in some political manipulation or the other caring three hoots for those who brought freedom to them sacrificing their life. Such a conduct is rather a colossal disrespect to the leaders who laid down their lives fighting for a free India. No amount of words is enough to condemn such a propensity on the part of those who defaulted. If those who launched and fought for freedom of India can’t be given due respect and honour, the current generation of leadership has no right to continue in their positions. Conduct of a type like this on the part of the parliamentarians and other dignitaries deserves nothing but an all out condemnation. These very parliamentarians are the same who are never absent when there is some matter relating to their direct interest like their wages, allowances and perks, being discussed in the Parliament. It’s a shame.
