Adhir question to Modi: How come Sonia, Rahul in Parliament (not in jail)?

Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury cited some accusations against his party's heads to question the authenticity of PM Modi's election-time allegations


New Delhi: Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Monday asked Prime Minister whether he has been able to get any of the accused in 2G and coal scam punished legally. Chowdhury said, “Could you send Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi behind the bars? You came to power saying that they were corrupt. How are they sitting in Parliament?”

Since the 2014 Lok Sabha election, then prime ministerial candidate of the BJP Modi has consistently linked the names of the Nehru-Gandhi family with financial scandals. Modi would link the amount calculated by the CAG in the 2G spectrum scam to Sonia Gandhi’s residence 10 Janpath. He would say during the election rallies that there was so much scam in the 2G case that “if one were to count the zeroes in the sum, one would reach from the venue of the rally to the gate of 10 Janpath”.

Similarly, Chowdhury said, in the coal scam, Modi used to target then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. But in the last five years, no charge has been proved against one leader in these cases.

In the 2G scam case, DMK leader Kanimozhi and were acquitted. The special court of the CBI in Delhi found no evidence against either of them while it also rebuked the investigation agency of preparing a weak case of the prosecution. This was an embarrassment for the Modi government, which many accused of building a nexus with M Karunanidhi and MK Stalin whom the prime minister had then met with some days prior to the verdict. The government and the BJP had said back then that it was a courtesy call necessitated by the declining health of Karunanidhi who was then alive.

However, the land scam cases against Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra’s husband are proceeding fast, with agencies busy in gathering evidence and witnesses. Vadra is out on a bail from the court.

In the case of INX Media, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram are the prime accused. They are out on bail, too.

In the National Herald case, Sonia and Rahul Gandhi are out on bail even as the trial is going on.

Suresh Kalmadi is the only politician who was pushed to oblivion after his name figured most prominently in the Commonwealth Games’ extravaganza scandal and he was jailed. He was in news in January when he was admitted to the Ruby Hall Clinic in Pune for a shoulder fracture.

In the Lok Sabha today, Congress leader Chowdhury cited some of these examples to question how authentic the charges levelled against his party’s leaders were. However, what made headlines was his urge to declare the style of moustache of pilot Abhinandan Varthaman the national moustache style!
