What else can be more shocking than this news appearing in the press. The way things are going on in relation to corruption in the country, this one is a major addition to it. True, it is not that any news has to be taken on its face value, but the very context and the sequence do matter. It’s a Raja, or a Kalmadi, the culprits are safely out from their jail term roaming free like any man in the gallery. Priyanka Gandhi has all the time been talking of remaining away from politics giving an impression as if she is the one who wants to remain above board, but her husband, Robert Vadera, whose interest of joining politics is well known, is taking full advantage of his mother-in-law, Sonia Gandhi, being in a top position in the country. I read a blog post describing the situation on corruption in India as an indication of another scam being in the offing. It appears that what he has tried to foresee is more or less already in the pipe line. Any jump in fortune from 50 lakh to 300 crore is unthinkable if viewed from a normality angle, but this is what the media has brought out, and this, on the face of the things as they are obtaining in the country, appears to be true. Earning such a huge amount merely in a period of simply 3 years is only denotative of the fact that there is something which is not possible in a normal manner. Prashant Bhushan and Arvind Kejriwal, both being members of India against Corruption (IAC), who brought the matter to light through a press conference called for the purpose, can be branded by the Congress Party or even by the Government, as those belonging to the opposition, but this, in no measure, can brush aside the allegations. If they are honest, or they pose to behave as such, why they don’t come out openly for an independent enquiry in the matter.
