Political Drama or Realism!

| Sunday, February 13, 2011
I am not an analyzer but the recent statement given by telecom minister Kapil Sibal in favour of Ex-Telecom Minister A Raja after he was arrested with his two aids -S Behuria and RK Chandolia is dim-witted. Whether this detention is done to castigate the masterminds of the spectrum scam or to lower the pressure of the opposition in the coming Budget session it is tuff to comprehend.

After the arrest yesterday all the senior political forecaster of south said that DMK will sideline Raja. But I am unable to understand why in spite of coming state election DMK is favouring Raja.

Now it is assumed to extent the pressure and breaking the unity of the opposition government will be ready for JPC also. If Government of India is really 'serious' about corruption they should agree to a JPC. Democracy has been degenerated into this perpetual war between political groups its true ends are no where in the picture and no one to care for. Media act like bout managers for the game, romanticizing and increasing its thrill value!

The most attention-grabbing thing I discovered on most of the news channels is enlightening the minute to minute facet of Raja in CBI office. In fact the food he eat was also put in the picture.

President of BJP Gadkari said in the press conference that Raja or Kalmadi are only the small fish in the scam of big sea. He was in a roundabout way targeting the Prime Minister. DMK is divided in two parts where Union Minister Alagiri is against Raja others are firm on supporting him.

Discussing the same issue with my close pal Shaljm she said corrupt politicians are more treacherous than even the terrorists. In fact this point is very apt. On one hand terrorists attack our country unswervingly but corrupts do it circuitously. After the Radia tapes came into public domain it seems Raja will had to run on a rocky terrain now.

Kalmadi can be next to lesser the pressure of the opposition. The big thing which CBI is investigating is where the black money is. Let witness what happens in the approaching days I anticipate that this time authoritarian action must be taken so that corrupts should not next instant even imagine of doing such big scams. If this case also goes like other cases in which no gigantic action has been taken not in favour of the politicians then what is the need of a democratic nation.
