Why Scandinavian Lemmings are being referenced in India ?

Yesterday I was reading the Blog of Sri. L.K.Advani where he mentioned that '....there is a rodent in Scandinavian countries known as “lemming” about which it is said that this species is unique: for no explicable reason, these ‘lemmings’ commit mass suicide.....'.
Not only this but Last week, the Hindu correspondents, P. Sainath, articled “The lurch of the Lemmings”( about the 2G, Radia, illicit funds, and a stubborn CVC, the U.P.A. Government’s scams in general).

So what is this Lemming suicide ?
I read the wiki and found that fact is - lemmins do not suicide but their
lemming suicide is a frequently used metaphor in reference to people who go along unquestioningly with popular opinion, with potentially dangerous or fatal consequences. So Mr. Advani was not describing the fact but metaphor.

So as per these people Scams are
multiplying faster than Lemmings and U.P.A. Government is in suicidal mood !!!
