Mystery of the Missing Opposition!
|by Dr. Rajinder Puri|
The Government has claimed that over 200 files related to the Coalgate scam are missing. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has stated that some of the missing files seriously impede the agency’s investigation. Among such crucial files is the one related to AMR Iron & Steel Private Limited with its headquarters in Nagpur. This firm has close ties with Congress MP Mr. Vijay Darda whose close relative is a director of the firm. The opposition parties in parliament rightly criticized the government for the missing files and charged it with deliberately covering up the truth to protect important leaders.
Should not the questions posed earlier to Mrs. Gandhi be renewed since the file is missing? Did Mr. Darda misuse her name in his letter of recommendation to the government? It is well known that mere mention of her name can make Congress ministers perspire. Surely it is in Mrs. Gandhi’s own interest to check such possible misuse of her name if it exists. However, at this point of time the writer is not concerned with Mrs. Gandhi’s naiveté or her lack of concern.
The popular explanation would be that they are themselves so compromised and vulnerable to investigation that they cannot genuinely pursue corruption cases. Therefore the first need now is not to question Mrs. Gandhi about her silence. Rather it is to question opposition leaders over their silence.
