Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today took a holier than thou stand and tweeted how he wishes elections were fought on agenda of education rather than caste and religion.

Twitter, of course, is an unforgiving place for the odd-even politician who changes his stand as per flavour of the season. He was soon reminded of his own promises and statements he had made during earlier elections where he and his leaders made caste-based and religion-based comments to woo voters.

Not only him, but his other associates, too, have indulged in divisive caste-based politics.

This just goes out to show that the white elephant of Indian politics has different teeth to show and different to chew.
