‘Family comes first’! Well, we don’t know where the adage was procreated, but we surely know a few of the politicians who lived by it.

These ‘brave’ people gave away their power, position and didn’t care how history was going to judge them for their tireless efforts.

Yes, the politics and discourse in Bihar is a clear reference but not the only one.

No surprises, the first name that would be striking your mind would be Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief, Lalu Prasad Yadav who recently gave away the mandate because he did not wanted his elder son – Tejashwi Yadav, who currently faces corruption charges – to be sacked from the position of Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar.

Interestingly, the nation which has almost been declared as the ‘Terror State’ – Pakistan, faces some same situation, where a corrupt leader was sacked from his post while trying to safeguard his children from facing the same fortune.

Yes, you guessed it right.

Nawaz Sharif was dismissed from the post of Prime Minister of Pakistan on Friday over corruption charges.

In the ruling, Pakistan’s apex court announced the verdict asking the accountability court to collect all the documents pertaining to the case and file a case against Sharif, making him the only serving PM of the country to be discharged in a corruption case.

On the other part of the border, Lalu Prasad Yadav is currently under the ire of the Opposition leaders for favouring corruption over the development of the State.

While tendering the resignation, Nitish Kumar took to his twitter handle and made it clear that he ‘cannot work under such circumstances’ (corrupt).

Even though the tables turned in Bihar and Nitish reclaimed his post after allying with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and winning the floor test on Friday; Pakistan has become a country without the Prime Minister and also Finance Minister, Ishaq Dar after he held guilty by the JIT under corruption and money laundering charges.

Even though the situations can’t be compared totally as one this side of the border it is a State – Bihar and on that side of the border it is a country, Pakistan. But, the grounds on which both the places face ruckus remain same.
