“SHINZO ABE’S GESTURE.

Early on Sunday morning Head Constable Virender Singh Yadav of the Delhi Police attached to Palam Police Station and deployed on the departure route of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was mowed down at about 3 am by, an as yet unknown, speeding vehicle near Metro pillar 139. He was on his police motorbike and was to take over charge of the cavalcade’s movement. He was killed on the spot and lay on the road when a passerby informed the Delhi Police.

The incident barely got a passing mention in this mornings newspapers. But no sooner the word got back to Tokyo, in a touching gesture the Japanese Prime Minister decided to send a bouquet of flowers and a letter of condolence to Yadav’s family.

For our VIP’s it would be just another little man dying doing his duty and not worth a second thought.”
Mohan Guruswamy

This is such a selfless act that very few politicians in the whole world are capable of. This act won’t get mentioned anywhere and that is why it is important. Even in India if a politician does these kind of acts, rarely it happens that it is not done for media coverage.
