NewsX seen the political discourse - Hit new lows this poll season with campaigning getting extremely vituperative with each passing phase - but today there was a breath of fresh air After his electrifying campaign in Varanasi - the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a welcome change asked his party cadres to Respect their opponents and not treat them as foes. The PM advised his supporters to maintain a level of dignity and not hit their political rivals below the belt Batting for a political 'bhai-chara' or brotherhood - the prime minister gave his own example claiming that he never gets affected by the criticism coming his way. Interesting this mid poll peace offer comes after PM's a-political interview with Akshay Kumar where he spoke about his bonhomie with Didi (Mamata Banerjee) and Ghulam Nabi azad. While the narrative about respecting your political opponents sounds ideal. The big question is if it's too much to expect a basic cordiality in a heated political environment.
