External Affairs Minister Yashwant Sinha has said decency should be maintained by leaders of political parties while attacking the leader of the opposition camp.

Talking to newsmen here, Sinha, who was in the steel city to address an election meeting of BJP, said irrespective of party affiliation, the leaders should avoid from personal attack or derogatory remarks on the opposition camp.

Advocating to check such trend, Sinha said this would only encourage the political parties unless a rein was put on the leaders who indulged in using such derogatory remarks or personal attack.

Sinha, who is the chairman of Jharkhand state election steering committee, expressed confidence that BJP would win all the 14 seats in the state as a pro-incumbency factor was sweeping across the state.

"I do not see any anti-incumbency factor in Jharkhand but rather there was a pro-incumbency wave across the state," Sinha claimed.

About the recent development in his home constituency in Hazaribagh over his nomination, Sinha said the incident was unfortunate as a handful of party activists wanted to create a problem but failed in their mission.

The minister said the party has been getting an overwhelming response from the Muslim community in this poll probably because the community has realised that the opposition camp had been exploiting it for political gain.
