Politicians know how to reap rich dividends and at what time. On saturday when two civilians in Jeora farms area lost their lives in Pak firing politicians of every hue,shape and color holding flags of different parties converged at the venue of the burial ceremony to score brownie points over each other.
The animosity was too visible on the surface.
In one corner Congress leader RS Chib sat on the foot steps of Govt school building and in opposite corner sardar TS Tony of National Conference occupied chairs with his group of followers and media friends.
The PDP leaders also arrived at the scene with party flag fitted on the SUV. Not to be left behind the BJP leaders were expected to arrive ahead of the burial ceremony.
The state govt was also swift in its response.
