The photo lie up of Congress Leaders at the podium of AICC Session appeared to be a challenge to the nation and the media against its cries about corruption and corrupt leaders. It was as if they were shamelessly telling the citizens of the country
" Iss Hamam mein sab Nange hain. What can you do". The cult of fearless corruption gained grounds with Bofors deal and has continued to flourish since then. The Oil for food scandal,2 G Spectrum scam, CWG scam and now Adarsh Housing Society scam, the rot seems to be never ending.
These scams have been going on because it is now established that the culprits are assured that they will not be punished under this regime and that the law of land is for common man and not for political leaders.
2. The podium looked like a theatre of absurd with Suresh Kalamadi, Ashok Chavan,Vilas Rao Deshmukh, Sheila Dixit, Kripa Shankar Singh posing with with broad smiles before the cameras. Sonia Gandhi never appeared bothered about these Scams but had the time to launch a tirade agains RSS and BJP.
3. Further probe into the Adarsh Scam has not been entrusted to the appropriate Investigating agency viz. CBI but to a group of Congress leaders as if it is an internal party matter. It is setting a dangerous precedent in corruption cases. Now, any party in power will institute a ministerial enquiry instead of the CBI acting upon it. This culture of covering corruption is extremely detrimental to the nation.What we need urgently now is another Jaiprakash Narain. God help the nation.
