BJP President Nitin Gadkari had likened Lalu Prasad, chief of the Rashtriya Janata Dal, and Mulayam Singh Yadav, who leads the Samajwadi Party, to "dogs who lick the feet of the Congress" at a public rally in Chandigarh on Wednesday night. He later issued an apology, saying he didn't mean to be offensive. In a separate incident, the Speaker of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly Ishwardas Rohani broke down and cried in the House on Wednesday after learning that Congress MLAs had allegedly taunted a BJP woman MLA. Is courtesy dying among Indian politicians?
