Sonia gets back at George
This must rate as one of the most unkindest cut of all, since probably Indira Gandhi's emergency times. The witchhunt intended by the Congress Govt is very obvious in the George Fernandes case.
The article by Vishweshwara Bhat in the Kannada daily Vijaya Karnataka on Oct 19 is very appropriate. Bhat wonders how a man who virtually has no personal wealth and doesnt even use a Rs.2 comb can be accused of taking a Rs.2 crore bribe. He exposes how the Congress Govt has systematically hatched the conspiracy to fix George Fernandes.
I'm not a big fan of George Fernandes' policies and his socialist tendencies. He can be held responsible for the flight of IBM from India, for all the misadventures of Morarji Deasi's Govt on the economic front, and more. However something that no one can accuse him of is corruption. Itz probably an indication of the times that a leader of integrity like him is today not needed by any body....deserted by his friends and hunted by his enemies.
Fie on you Congress for the witchhunt on a hero when he is susceptible. Fie on you Dr.Manmohan Singh for being a mute spectator while Madam runs amuck with her hate campaign.
Since we cannot know all that is to be known of everything, we ought to know a little about everything.
