Center drops Snooping probe- Sibal and Shinde putting boot in their mouth!
The problem with some of Congress leader is that they never learn a lesson. They always in a hurry to issue statements throw barbs and sometimes threaten opponents without estimating the merit of the issues they are dealing with. On would recall the incident when Manish Tewari issued harsh and insulting statements to against Anna Hazare only to beg apologize latter.

Kpail Sibal and Shushil Shinde are repeated offenders of such tactic. Sushil Shinde’s rematk on ‘Saffron terror’ became boomerang to him to which he had to put his boot in his mouth saying that terror has no colour. Kapil Sibal’s ‘zero loss theory’ in 2G case still hounding him whenever the issue surfaces. Recently he stated that, he has clinching evidence against Amit Shah and Modi on Isharat fake encounter case. He simply went hiding when CBI gave clean chit to Amit Shah in that fake encounter case.

Now let’s come to the snoop-gate issue. When Jayanti Natarajan led women leaders of Congress blamed Modi government on this snoop gate on 17th November during a high profile exclusive press-conference, within couple of days the victim and her father immediately denounced this attempt citing breaching of their privacy guaranteed by the Constitution as fundamental right. My article ‘With Snooping Scanadal, Congress stooping too low’ was published on 19th November 2013 in this platform detailing everything. In fact the press conference on this snooping scandal was intended for election mileage during assembly election which was back fired seriously.

Then just a routine arrangement there was a cabinet decision to constitute a probe panel headed by a Supreme Court justice. Although it’s said that no judge was ready to head the panel but I thing UPA government didn’t push the matter knowing very well, lack of merit in this particular case.

However, when Vadra case was taken up by BJP, both Sushil Shinde and Kapil Sibal became sycophant to the family and publicly declared that the probe panel will be constituted by 16th May 2014, knowing very well that the general election is going on. However they perhaps knew that this has no merit, but they have to show their loyalty to the first family. Result as usual; they have put their boot in their mouth!

First allies and media asked why the urgency on this probe panel. Then father of alleged victim knocked the door of the Supreme Court, where in day one itself Solicitor General straight away said that they are not going to constitute any probe panel. Case is closed.

But now question arises as to why Union Home Minister and Union Law Minister raised such a high voltage announcement along with repeated statements? Do they indulge in cheap politics? If yes why don’t they resign right now owning responsibility of degrading the stature of Union Ministers? If they aren’t doing cheap politics, who don’t they come out and talk to people why Solicitor General gone against their line?

Point is simple, old habit dies hard, for Sibal and Shinde it’s really hard. If they play with the privacy of a girl, what would they be doing for rest of the nation! God save from such ministers!
