All are equal but Vadra is more equal
In India most of the politicians and kith and kin of politicians are corrupt. But who wants a probe? If probe orders for disproportionate assets of politicians are executed, then the country will have to establish a thousand more courts - just to prosecute corrupt politicians. Only God can save this country.

THERE IS a well-known proverb - ‘All are equal but some are more equal’ - which is perfectly applicable to some politicians of India. Now, Mr. Arvind Kejriwall the leader of India Against Corruption has made some serious allegations against the son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi Robert Vadra regarding dealings with builder DLF.

Whether it is correct or not will be known later if a probe takes place. Soon after the disclosure of allegations, the Congress party leaders including Sonia Gandhi flared up and asked the leaders of Congress party to condemn Kejriwal and company.

Already we have a leader in Congress party Mr. Chidambaram who is holding the key portfolio of Finance, saying that there is no question of checking out the allegations levelled by Kejriwal.

What is this? Is it proper for anybody talking like this? If a person whose honesty is at stake, he/she straight away can ask for a legitimate probe to prove hi/she credentials.

Since the movement of Independence, the people of India love the family of Pandit Nehru. They strived hard to attain Independence for the country. There was a tale that they had invested their whole property to India’s Independence. But nobody knows how far this is correct? Anyhow, the family had got the best regard among people.

The first time the family got a bad name was when the ‘Bofors’ gun deal was done, and their image took a great beating. After that Congress was not the earlier Congress party, and not sure of winning elections. After the death of Rajiv Gandhi the Nehru family image has been going downhill.

One thing we can observe - that Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were not power-hungry people. They ruled when Congress got the majority otherwise remained calm.

But Sonia Gandhi’s intention right from the beginning was quite opposite. She wants power by hook or crook. She said at the beginning that she never come into politics. Later, she took charge of the Congress party while supporting Manmohan. Sonia did not get on well with PV Narasimha Rao who protected the country from downfall through economic reforms.

Sonia Gandhi knows how wealthy his son-in-law was when he married her daughter Priyanka Gandhi. He was a small-time businessman. How does he have crores of rupees now? A website called ‘Celebrity Net worth’ has already disclosed the worth of Robert Vadra - 2.1 billion dollars.

Already, there is a case going on in the court filed by the CBI on Jagan Mohan Reddy that the worth of his properties in the last 10 years have risen exponentially. Why can't CBI probe Reddy?

Chandrababu, a top political leader, always gets stay orders from a Court whenever there is a case coming up. But he always says he is the only honest leader. Already, Tehalka, a web magazine, has reported that he was the most corrupt leader in the country.

If I continue to add to this list, then almost 75 percent of our political leaders are corrupt. Everyone needs a probe. So, AICC President Sonia Gandhi should think of her son-in-law and should suggest a CBI probe to clear his name.
