Opinion | Converting valour to votes is simply not done

“Dedicate the votes to the air force and to jawans”? Did they perform their duty, lay down their lives for someone to ask someone for votes? That sentence meant – who will deny it? – “dedicate your vote to me”. “Not done”, I said to myself. “Simply, simply not done”. Here are brave hearts laying their lives on the line for our country and their daring, their training, their striving, is used to seek votes.
