A statement credited to a national leader of one of the political parties in our country while responding to questions from journalists on his party’s preparedness towards future elections, that the party members will do what they know how to do best is inciting, unfortunate and not healthy for our political landscape.
Our leaders should eschew desperation and imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship during elections and if dissatisfied with the conduct of the polls, election petition tribunals are there to address the issue(s). Making sensitive statements like the one referred to above is suggestive to every rational person and is capable of plunging our dear country into another crisis even when we are still battling with our security challenges. The earlier we stopped do-or-die politics, the better for everyone, and the better for our land.
