Who Should be Sacked, Mr. Prime Minister?
|by Dr. Rajinder Puri|
The Prime Minister has publicly claimed that he and his senior cabinet colleagues were unaware of the CBI raid against DMK leader MK Stalin. The CBI has stated: “The operation was strictly in accordance with procedure.” The CBI functions under the Prime Minister. It is directly overlooked by Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) V Narayanasamy.
In other words if the CBI is not lying it must have informed at least Mr. Narayanasamy about the decision to raid Mr. Stalin. The importance of the individual raided would make it imperative that clearance for sanction should have been granted after due consideration at the highest level.
Does that imply that before seeking information from Mr. Sinha about the case Mr. Narayanasamy was unaware of details pertaining to a raid against such an important leader? Does it mean that Mr. Sinha did not seek his sanction before conducting the raid?
If the CBI has lied about observing due procedures Mr. Ranjit Sinha must be dismissed.
If CBI spoke the truth Mr. Narayanasamy must inform the public why he did not inform the cabinet about the decision to conduct a raid against an important leader. Did he take a singular decision or was he directed by any extra-constitutional authority? If he granted sanction for the raid without informing the cabinet he must be dismissed. If he informed the cabinet the PM as well as Mr. Chidambaram was privy to the decision on the raid and their disclaimer about knowledge of the raid is a lie.
The public has the right to know who is speaking the truth and who is lying. The public has the right to know who is accountable and deserves dismissal.
Mr. Ranjit Sinha, Mr. Narayanasamy or the Prime Minister must resign.
Governance based on such brazen contradictions raises fundamental questions about the future of this nation.
It raises questions about who in truth is charting this nation’s future.
