It is a common refrain among the masses that many Indian politicians are arrogant and senior BJP leader LK Advani seems to share the view.

According to Advani, many politicians in the country are "arrogant" and this attitude is not seen in other democratic countries.

The reason Advani feels is that Indian politicians enjoy a very powerful position.

"We have come to occupy a place, enjoy a clout far in excess of our inherent merit," he said after releasing a book on late Jan Sangh leader Deen Dayal Upadhyay.

Advani cited the example of Upadhyay noting that he used to say that one should not think about oneself and instead should think about the party and its larger goals.
