Misbehaviour of the Congress
|by Ravinder Malhotra|
The day Pranab Mukerjee was sworn in as the Finance Minister, I had remarked in one of my writings that the intent of the Congress will now be to find ways and means to scuttle the demand of the nation to come clean on the ill gotten wealth of the Gandhi family and others.
Pranab Mukerjee is the oldest member of the inner circle from Indira Gandhi's era and a scycophant to the core. A former diplomat, a sweet talking schemer, Pranab is in the know of the stashed away wealth of the gandhi family.
As events unfolded and budgets presented, it became obvious that Pranab was at it. The grapevine alluded to the wealth of the gandh's being moved from known locations to unknown locations.
When Baba Ramdev launched his agitation, Pranab stayed in the background, preferring to let Kapil and others negotiate.
When realisation set in that Baba Ramdev was adamant about his demands, Kapil and others went into a huddle with Pranab again.
The congress was left with no option but to unleash state power on innocent people at Ramlila Maidan.
History is witness to such behaviour. When dictators are confronted they too misuse state power. Arrogance drives them during such times.
The language of the uncouth Digvijay Singh is testimony to the mindset of arrogance. But then, as a wag commented, what can one expect from a 'Dasiputra'.
