According to report, Katju in his blog, Gandhi---A British Agent, said that Gandhi did great harm to India by injecting religion into politics.

In a sarcastic comment on politicians who blabbers a lot during election time but does nothing after winning the polls, the blog further said, "This is because politicians will promise the moon, but not do anything for the public welfare. So since you must have someone, why not vote for a beautiful face ? At least you will get some momentary happiness looking at her face in the media. Otherwise you will get nothing at all".
