Even BJP Leaders have Links with the Nation’s Scamsters –from Lalit Modi to Vijay Mallya to Sanjay Bhandari
It looks like all of the political leaders of mainstream parties such as the Congress and the BJP in India are closely acquainted with the country’s biggest crooks.
So from those in the Gandhi household to the BJP’s holier-than-thou pretenders none is above board.
It has emerged that it is not just Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra who maintains links with arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari but also senior BJP leaders like Siddharth Nath Singh. This report in Outlook is worth a read.
Not too long ago the friendships among External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, BJP’s Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia and fugitive Lalit Modi were out in the open with not even Prime Minister Narendra Modi above suspicion.
Recently, the BJP government even allowed another economic offender Vijay Mallya to flee India.
So the BJP has no moral authority to bring the Gandhis and the Vadras to book. It just wants to take political mileage out of it. They will continue to needle them but will not take any meaningful action against them! Making them appear as corrupt in the eyes of the public is what they want! And that is what will pay them electoral dividends! So the BJP is playing its cards right.
What is even more interesting is that London is at the centre of all scams coming out of India. It is home to all rich scoundrels from India as I had argued in several of my posts in the past.
