Anger against political class: Martyr Unnikrishnan's father snubs Kerala CM

Slain NSG commando Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan's father drove out Kerala Chief Minister K Achuthanandan who had come to the martyr's house in Bangalore.

The incident not just reflects the frustration and anger of the citizens with the political class but also shows the contempt with which they are being viewed after the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Unnikrishnan's father didn't allow Achuthanandan and the Home Minister to enter the house.

This is the latest manifesation of the society's anger with the politicians. Earlier the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Vilasrao Deshmukh landed in controversy for touring the Tajmahal Hotel site on Sunday and taking along his son and director Ram Gopal Verma.

His home minister RR Patil had caused outrage by terming the terror strikes as a 'small incident in a big city'. The first man to go was Home Minister Shivraj Patil. Amid mounting anger more heads may roll in days to come. The surge of anger was such that across the nation, citizens spoke in the same voice.
