While at the national level one sees a complete lack of decorum in the exchanges between the Congress Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party when the entire country is in mourning over the tragic loss of lives in this state a fortnight ago, the people have also come face to face with an obnoxious form of regionalism that poses a grave danger to the national unity and the feeling of oneness.
