It is not correct to say that all knaves and scoundrels in India are Congressmen. At the same time it cannot also be doubted that most of the Congressmen today are generally scoundrels and knaves. Why is it so? Why should it be so? The answer is simple. The Congress High Command by convention extends its full support and patronage only to knaves and scoundrels.
The whole of India owes a deep debt of gratitude to the CNN-IBN TV Channel for having boldly and fearlessly exposed the dubious and criminal antecedents of one Moni Kumar Subba, Lok Sabha Congress MP from Tezpur in Assam.
For at least 16 years, Congress MP Moni Kumar Subba has brazenly snubbed allegations that he is not an Indian.
The shocking news is that he is not an Indian national.
He is reported to be a Nepali national and he has so far successfully lied about his age, education and place of birth to the Election Commission and Parliament. If one is to go by official records of Congress MP Moni Kumar Subba, he was born thrice and at three places. The Congress MP from Tezpur and an escaped criminal in Nepal have many things common between them!
M K Subba claims to have studied in the Gandhi Vidhyalaya in Assam in 1972. But the school didn't even exist at that time.
The cruel joke is that all the so called law enforcement agencies of the Government of India and the State Governments have totally failed to identify the glorious background of this great son of India (?) that is not Bharat!
When the CNN-IBN's Investigation Team confronted Moni Kumar Subba with these cold facts, he spoke imperiously on a hidden camera and said: 'We are supreme. I have been an MLA from Assam twice and then an MP and you are talking of citizenship'. I have no doubt that such an arrogance may not impress the Supreme Court as it has been reported that Subba simply has no document to prove that he is an Indian by birth.
In this context we should not forget the fact that Nazi criminals like Ribbentrop (1893-1946), Goebbels (1897-1945) etc. also spoke imperiously during the Nuremberg trials in 1945-46 before they were hanged for war crimes.
I have been writing consistently about the criminal antecedents of many of the MPs in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha during the last several years. The great poet of American democracy, Walt Witman (1819 - 1892) had versatile Congress criminals like Moni Kumar Subba in view when he paid a special tribute to the US Congressmen of his time in the following explosive words in 1880:
'The members who composed it (any Democratic Party National Convention prior to the Civil War) were, seven-eighths of them, the meanest kind of bawling and blowing officeholders, office-seekers, pimps, malignants, conspirators, murderers, fancy-men, custom-house clerks, contractors, kept-editors, spaniels well-trained to carry and fetch, jobbers, infidels, dis-unionists, terrorists, mail-riflers, slave-catchers, pushers of slavery, creatures of the President, creatures of would-be Presidents, spies, bribers, compromisers, lobbyers, sponges, ruined sports, expelled gamblers, policy-backers, monte-dealers, duellists, carriers of concealed weapons, deaf men, pimpled men, scarred inside with vile disease, gaudy outside with gold chains made from the people's money and harlots' money twisted together; crawling, serpentine men, the lousy combinings and born freedom-sellers of the earth'.
In today's Indian context and in this instant case in question, the word 'President' in the above quotation would mean only Congress President, the de facto Prime Minister of India.
M K Subba has clearly proved that nothing succeeds like excess. In the Congress Party under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi, the working philosophy today of most Congressmen is 'Nothing succeeds like criminal excess!' Daniel Webster probably had liars like M K Subba in view when he wrote: 'falsehoods not only disagree with truths but usually quarrel among themselves'. The CNN-IBN has clearly brought out the following conflicting and disturbing facts in a graphic manner about M K Subba ' a great Congress son of India!
The matter relating to the citizenship status of this Nepali criminal is now pending before the Supreme Court. The Central Government is supposed to file a reply in the apex court about Subba's nationality by the coming weekend. What is shocking is that the CBI had in the past carried out a 'thorough probe' and given a clean chit to Moni Kumar Subba, citing lack of evidence as the reason.
It has been publicly reported that for 16 years, India's law enforcement agencies have failed to confirm that Congress MP M K Subba is an escaped murder convict from Nepal called Maniraj Limbo. This is what the Supreme Court told Subba when his case was heard: 'It is highly suspicious how you came to India and how you got Indian citizenship. We take a very serious view of it. For instance, the CBI says: 'MK Subba states he was born in Dabgram, but we have no evidence to confirm or refute his claim'. The Supreme Court has also pulled up the CBI for making a total mess of the Subba investigation.
The BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad has stated: 'As a Parliamentarian and a political activist, I am embarrassed and hang my head in shame over the quality of Parliamentarians. In light of the present provisions, Moni Kumar Subba must be sacked. We will raise it in Parliament'. One of the Congress leaders has said: 'The CBI must be pulled up for this kind of shoddy job'.
A BJP delegation has met the Speaker and demanded that a separate Committee be formed to investigate the M K Subba case. The BJP MPs have pointed out that the SC has already upheld Parliament's right to act against MPs in the cash-for-query scam. They have therefore demanded that a similar Committee should be set up now to investigate the M K Subba case.
I wanted to ascertain the views of Dr Subramanian Swamy, former Union Law Minister, on this controversial issue of the nature of dubious citizenship of Congress MP M K Subba from Tezpur in Assam. He gave me this sharp, categorical and characteristically brilliant reply: 'I am not surprised by the revelation that Congress MP M K Subba is a foreigner and a proclaimed offender in a murder case in Nepal, because after all he is a Congress leader. The Congress Party's credentials for national integrity was completely eroded when it became known that the Party President Ms Sonia Gandhi had falsely claimed in an affidavit and in the Lok Sabha's Who's Who publication, that she had got a degree from the University of Cambridge, UK when in fact as the University informed the Lok Sabha that 'there was never any student by name Sonia Maino or Antonia Maino'.
More revelations like these will spill out soon, and hence do not be surprised. 'Yatha Raja thatha Praja'.
Very few politicians in India can match Dr Subramanian Swamy's intellect, sagacity, broad outlook and unmatched civic courage, rare qualities which have maintained him at the highest eminence in public life in India. In my view he ought to be the Prime Minister of India in these turbulent days and not the kind of hollow and stuffed surrogate non-men who are neutral between the fire brigade and the fire and between good and evil.
What kind of legal action can be initiated against this illegally exceptional (!!) Congress MP from Tezpur in Assam is the moot question? There is no doubt whatsoever that he is guilty of violation of Article 102 (1) (d) of the Constitution, Rule 4 of the Conduct of the election rules and Section 181 of Indian Penal Code.
It should be borne in mind that Justice Ibrahim Kalifullah of the Madras High Court was not the first Judge to permit invocation of Writ Jurisdiction under Article 226 of the constitution in an election case. When one Venkatachalam impersonated and swore a false affidavit as if he was an elector of Lalgudy constituency in the 1984 Tamil Nadu Assembly Election, the Madras High Court unseated him in Writ Proceedings. Is filing an election petition the only remedy or a Writ could be filed was the issue before the Supreme Court, when Venkatachalam appealed against the orders of the Madras High Court.
The Supreme Court, while dismissing the appeal, asked, 'Consider the case where the person elected is not the Citizen of India. Would the court allow a foreign citizen to sit and vote in the legislative Assembly and not exercise Jurisdiction under Article 226 of Constitution?'
The Supreme Court at that time was only asking a rhetorical or pedagogical question. The illegal Congress MP from Tezpur and the Congress Party have succeeded in making the imaginary fears expressed by the Supreme Court in 1985 completely true and well-founded today!
In Congress Politics under the stranglehold of Sonia Gandhi, there can be no honor. In her style of politics, nothing is contemptible. The working principle of Congress High Command is 'a scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel'.
