This refers to your editorial, “Dangerous allegation” (December 12, 2017). Aiyar’s neech jibe at the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi was in bad taste. At the same time, constant pappu jibe at the then Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi and the Pakistan jibe at the former Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh are no less unfortunate. In the present atmosphere of free-for-all mud-slinging, what is really appreciable is Rahul Gandhi’s prompt and positive action against Aiyar. Such action should be set as a model of what is to be done to rescue politics from the quicksand on dangerous dirty-game ground. It is also time to take action against those who are in the habit of using filthy language in the social media.
