The responsible citizen:

Spreading rumours and false news, just for the sake of criticizing the opposite person is not encouraged. Common people if had done this would be a black spot on the civic duty and responsibility. But this coming from the elected, representative leaders, is a shame on them. Be it any person, from any origin.
