Father's folly

Father Frazer Mascarenhas, Principal of the prestigious Xavier's College, Mumbai has advised the students that the Gujarat model of development is not good for the nation and this must be kept in view while exercising their voting rights. This is obviously an advisory against voting for Narendra Modi's party.

The Principal has disingenuously claimed that he is not canvassing for or against anyone or any party. Such a claim is nothing short of intellectual dishonesty, not expected of this erudite Father. Oh, Lord! Forgive the Father for he claims he knows not what he is doing.

It is stated that Xavier's College gets financial aid from the government. Therefore the legitimacy of its Principal expressing a political view officially is open to question. Resignation can  be the only moral atonement for Mascarenhas' misadventure.
