Contradictions and lies

Smriti Irani lays out the BJP's stand on reservations:
BJP totally stands by reservations for women in parliament. The only thing it objects to is reservations on the basis of religion. In our country, everyone should be equal under the law. One should not encourage division on the basis of religion, region, caste or creed.
I shall offer no comment on that.

In other news, the Supreme Court calls Zaheera Shaikh a liar. Well, she kept contradicting herself, so she was clearly lying at least part of the time. Now they'll fight over which parts of her testimonies were truthful. What a mess.
