    These elected representatives should keep up the respect they get from the officials and people.
    They should not think this is the power they can enjoy.

    People will respect even an ordinary person for his good deeds.

    Politiy elected him as their representative in a democratic set up . Police on its part pays due regard to the People through through their elected representative. Each one understands and attends to their respective station and duties with changing times. Neither the police officer had gone below his dignity nor the people's representative took undue advantage. Unless one has authentic evidence on hand, it is not fair to speak I'll of an elected representative. Negative gossips tend to damage the System evolved over the years.

    This is not protocol this is the culture developed by our own criminal and uneducated politicians. When they claim that they're public servants do they need salutes??

    There is nothing in the protocol where it says an M P has to be saluted.
