Angry Delhi police told be extra nice to politicians

Came across this news:

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Policemen in the Indian capital, widely perceived as rude to ordinary people, have been told to be brush up their manners when dealing with politicians.

The Home Ministry has asked New Delhi's police to "listen patiently" to politicians, rise to their feet when they arrive or leave, and ensure they get comfortable seats at public functions, the Hindustan Times reported on Wednesday.

The directive, which came after lawmakers complained that officers were not adhering to "basic courtesies", has already run into criticism.

"Everyone should be treated equally," lawyer Kamini Jaiswal was quoted in the paper as saying. "Why should extra respect be given to MPs?"

But police defended the new guidelines. "It is required, since in a democracy MPs are people's representatives," New Delhi Police spokesman Deependra Pathak told the Hindustan Times.

In an Indian democracy, the politician is always more equal than others - he and his relatives get the plush bungalows, the livery and servants, the free tickets on rail and air, free this and free that ( of course you and I are paying those bills).

There's no hope for India unless we find a way to make these b**s accountable for all the evil they do, and when we do find a way we will really see this nation shine and stand tall in the world.

Cops are already extra extra polite to politicians thats why the mantri's and their chamcha's get away with murder in this country. Remember Manu Sharma? Ideally, the cops should be told to be polite to ordinary Indians but expecting that from our neta's is expecting the stars and more.
