The Union minister of state for external affairs and ex Chief of army staff feels disgusted having attended Pakistan National day functiong even though considering this his duty. A Congress leader commented that if disgusted, the minister should have resigned.
However, it is not understandable why should somebody be disgusted for performing duty. India has diplomatic relation with Pakistan and so it is okay for a minister to attend the function. Rather expressing disgust itself is failure in performing duty. Moreover, cabinet has joint responsibility. It is improper for a minister to make such comments. The minister should not have resigned as the living and thoughtful persons can always have different views. Ultimately the collective majority based decision has to be implemented and there must be no expression of disgust.
