New Delhi: With the BJP alleging that Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson could not have left the country without the knowledge of the Rajiv Gandhi-led government at the Centre, the Congress on Tuesday said such allegations were not patriotic.

“There are some who are in the business of lampooning Mr (Rajiv) Gandhi, who had lost his mother for the sake of national integration barely months ago and six years later lost his life for the country. To claim that such a person would have buckled under the pressure is not only baseless but cheap insinuation. Whosoever is doing so is out of sync with the national ethos of the Congress Party. In fact, to that extent their patriotic credentials also remain suspect,” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said.

what has patriotism to do with asking for the truth?
greek philosopher Socrates once said, “Patriotism does not require one to agree with everything that his country does, and would actually promote analytical questioning in a quest to make the country the best it possibly can be.

a Patriot
