Lalit Modi now trying to divert attention by taking names of Robert Vadra and Priyanka Gandhi?
"I had run into Robert and Priyanka separately in a restaurant - they were with Timmy Sarna. He has my number. They can call me. Will tell them what I feel about them exactly. Will mince no words. Will make no deal. But tell them witch hunt will now make them realize I was. If I remember correctly it was last year and the year before. Doubt either reported it to anyone. They were in power then (sic)," That goes in the series of tweets of Lalit Moti.

Timmy Sarna, who was mentioned in the above tweet, is the managing director of DLF Brands. Lalit Modi's tweets came on a day when it was reported that Vasundhara Raje has conveyed to BJP leaders that she had testified on Modi's immigration application document.

The Indians these days are experiencing the uneasy times of fantasies with awe and wonder as the tallest leaders of BJP are now found in league with a person who is a declared offender and absconder. The large arm of law is looking for him. Despite the arrogant and obdurate defense made by RSS / BJP to shield these leaders who had showered the favors upon Lalit Modi, the public would not be hoodwinked this time. The cases are almost defenseless and no amount of chicanery would suffice to exonerate or absolve these leaders from the moral offence they have committed against the nation.  

However, I have no hesitation to accept that Congress Party is also not club of honest and pious tribunes. All sorts of crimes, blunders and offenses were committed by Congressmen during their Raj. But the nemesis and recompense has followed. They are out of power with the Sickening Formula 44. We know that Prime Minister Nehru had some weakness and the major one was his trust in wrong people. His trust in Chinese leadership was the grave misjudgment; Indiraji imposed Emergency and Rajeev Gandhi was more of a Technocrat than a politician. He was the one responsible for the mess and confusion created in Shah Bano's Case. He had failed to play fair in Babri Masjid complications and his policy of Sri Lanka was faulty.

However the present NDA is becoming rather a joke than a serious ruling entity. And the latest volley of scandals has brought the reality of their duplicity before the nation.

From Sushma, Vasundhara, Smriti, Munde, Tawde and now the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. All are waist deep in the sluggish putrid stream of corrupt practices. Lalit Modi who has given them the first tulip of sorrow and ignominy is back with a balm of Priynaka-Vadra story. A proper song can be added to this line that gives BJP some hope - 'Ghum jis ne diye hain wahi ghum door karega' (The one who had inflicted these miseries would also lift them up).  

So the short encounter of Robert Vadra and Lalit Modi has come as blessing for BJP in the time of extreme distress. It is like the proverbial straw that a drowning man will clutch.  

The RSS family is hoping that this disclosure will turn the tables on the Congress. They are asking to explain the meeting claimed by Modi without explaining why the Prime Minister has been silent all along. "The Congress must explain. Why Mrs Gandhi is silent?" asked BJP's Sambit Patra.

He is the man ready with all the answers asked about RSS and BJP. It doesn't matter if most of his answers are never corroborated on logic and fact. The BJP is trying to pull the wool over the public eyes by drawing parallels between the meetings of BJP stalwarts and Vadra Modi gate-crash. The fact of the matter is that neither Priyanka nor her husband had ever interacted socially with the former IPL boss and running into anybody in a restaurant was not a crime.

Priyanka Vadra has no official position and can't help Modi which is a known bete noire of Congress. Lalit Modi has been shrewd enough to create some photo opportunities that could have helped him in his plight. There is no point to perorate what relationship flourished between Foreign Minister, Chief Minister of Rajasthan, her husband, her son and Lalit Modi. It is all shown on TV screen 24 / 7.

The BJP is trying to take refuge behind the non-issues of Vadra-Modi ran in. It is a brilliant effort by Lalit Modi at the behest of BJP to divert attention. But, it won't work. Indians are intelligent enough to distinguish between the facts and fiction.

The gist of the story is - You can fool some people all the time; you can fool all the people for some times; you can't fool all the people all the time.
