Shri Rajan Vichare forced the catering supervisor to eat the Chapati in order to show him the bad quality of the chapatti. This act was seen by many on TV news channels. Even if the act was done just to show the quality of the food, the act itself is despicable, and should be unequivocally condemned. This amounts to manhandling of a person and trespassing personal freedom. It also amounts to insult of the individual and trying to hurt that catering supervisors self-esteem.
In a society, people judge a person on his external acts rather than on his intentions and thinking. Our image is built by our deeds and not by our intentions. This is more applicable to public figures and even more to elected members. Even if there was a need of taking corrective action for the quality of food was not good, this is not the way to do. To trespass other persons freedom amounts to showing extreme arrogance. Mr Rajan Vichare’s actions amounts to just that. Arrogance of power. As an elected member of parliament he had all the power to take executive action against faltering catering supervisor instead without thinking Mr Rajan Vichare displayed his arrogance of power and immaturity.
In this context the only way is Mr Rajan Vichare should publicly apologize to catering supervisor. Also other political parties should not give this act a Hindu Muslim colour and should show some maturity of thought and action.
