For the first time, Sharad Pawar has admitted, on record, that he had “deliberately misled” people following the 1993 Mumbai blasts by saying there were 12 and not 11 explosions, adding the name of a Muslim-dominated locality to show that people from both communities had been affected [source].

He says, he did it to maintain peace and to keep Hindus from retaliating. But does that make it right? If this is one lie he is willing to admit, how many other lies are politicians concealing?
