Insulting a customer and then hoping to retain him is strategy only in a fool’s domain!
This is exactly what Arvind Kejriwal tried to accomplish in Rajouri, Delhi – ejecting the sitting MLA and then planting him as a candidate in the Punjab Assembly elections.
The result: humiliating defeats in both. Needless byelections are a criminal waste of money. Such political misdemeanour must be outlawed.
That aside, if you don’t show loyalty to a constituency that elected you and ditch it for an imaginary paradise elsewhere, voters are not fools to give you a lifeline.
This reminds me of a Tamil adage which loosely translated into English means “lust for King can cost you the Husband.”
