Today is Rajnath Singh's birthday.

Let me tell you a little known episode about how Rajnath Singh fought for the future of our country (and lost an election because of it)

And how Indian secularists won an election by promising to let students cheat in exams.

Cheating had become rampant in UP Board Exams.

When Kalyan Singh came to power, Rajnath Singh was education minister.

He brought a strict law against cheating in exams

At the time, cheating was so rampant that pass % crashed from 80% to 30% immediately.

Sadly, so pathetic is our politics that govt acting against cheating was unpopular.

In UP elections, Mulayam made it a huge promise to remove anti-cheating measures.

BJP lost the election. Mulayam Singh Yadav became CM.

As soon as Mulayam came to power, he removed the law against cheating.

And immediately, pass % rose to 73%!

Now tell me, Indian secularism won the election.

But who lost? Along with BJP, did we the people also not lose?
