Et tu Brute

The 2G Spectrum scam stops at the Prime Minister’s desk. That the BJP is hypocritical and uses double standard in corruption is the argument of the Congress. This in reference to the allegations made against the CM-of Karnataka, de-notifying government lands and his sons becoming beneficiaries.. Is Yeddyurappa the Prime Minister of the country and is Karnataka India? What a comparison. Here the revelation of the letter written by Dayanidhi Maran the former minister for Communication and IT and the continuation of the PM’s succumbing to the DMK’s arm twisting during Raja’s tenure is four years old. The national interest has been sacrificed by the Prime Minister-he had given a blank check to Maran and A.Raja to fleece the exchequer. What does one call this? To bring in Yeddurappa on the same level is beyond one’s comprehension. Yeddurappa’s alleged nepotism, and corruption will not shake India but will shake the faith of the people of Karnataka in their CM. But the betrayal of the PM of the national interest of this country has shaken the faith of the whole of India. The sheen of integrity and honesty which Mr Manmohman Singh had painted himself with, has been washed off. All the time he had for the sake of power, for the love of the PM’s gaddi given in to the DMK. The request of Maran was totally unacceptable and yet the PM accepted the conditions. No interference in the Communication and IT ministry was what Maran requested the PM so readily accepted that. If this is not betrayal of the country then what is it.? Now the silence of the PM is eloquent. The Prime Minister cannot get away with this betrayal of national interest. How can one trust the PM with the nation’s security and citizens’ safety? It is but shocking that Mr Manmohan Singh was capable of stooping to such a level for power. The Prime Minister has not just abetted corruption and brought such colossal loss to the exchequer but he has actively participated in it. This is too much for the nation to accept when it is raining scams all over the country-here comes the PM also within the scanner et tu Brute? What would have been the alternative-to down right reject Dayanidhi Maran/A Raja’s request? The department of Communication and IT cannot become the private corporation of the DMK. It was already stated that the Marans is in the business of communication and IT and hence the ministry should not be given to the DMK. This is simple logic and probity in public life. The Prime Minister failed-failed miserably, in doing his duty and upholding his prerogative in selecting his council of ministers. Are the various ministries just channels to siphon off colossal amounts into private kitties, and fleece the nation? The refusal of the PM to toe the line of the DMK and to stand by his oath and obligation to the nation may have resulted in the DMK withdrawing its support. So what? The nation will realize the true color of the DMK and the extraction by it of the pound of flesh. Mrs Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh must realize that the public exchequer is not the Congress’s bank. It belongs to the nation-the blood and sweat of the hardworking citizens of this country. Both did not hesitate to yield to the ransom demanded by the DMK because both Mrs Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh were anxious to put the UPA2 government in place and sit in their respective power positions. Towards this both were prepared to sacrifice the nation’s interest. This is dangerous trend-because the UPA then would sacrifice even the country. We see in the unfolding of events the same kind of betrayal of the country and its sovereignty. No action against secessionists-no action against terrorists (except exchange of dossiers),no action against Afzal Guru and Kasab, no action against J&K Azadi rallyists who burned the national flag and shouted anti-India slogans, no action against China when it started building a dam across Bharamaputra, the list goes on. Now with this 2G Spectrum scam all the other scams fall in place. The whole lot of the UPA 2 government and governance is corrupt.. The whole UPA is stinking and sinking- it has failed on all fronts- there is no national interest to safe guarding the territorial boundaries, -safeguarding the citizens’ security, in these it has failed. A class of politicians submerged in corruption and scams-is what we see. The biggest scam in Independent India has the Prime Minister’s seal on it. No wonder his silence and no wonder the Supreme Court has requested the PM to reply The Congress in general and the PM in particular was hurt by the remarks of the Opposition that the PM is weak. This 2G Spectrum scam goes to prove that he is more than weak. He buckled to the DMK simply because he wanted to be please Mrs Sonia Gandhi. Now the drama of renunciation is becoming clearer. Mrs Sonia Gandhi handpicked Manmohan Singh because she knew his weakness and because she knew that he will be a willing puppet. Why had she not chosen Pranab Mukherjee? The nation cannot go on with Manmohan Singh as the Prime Minister and the UPA 2 in power- the 2G spectrum is the Bofors of the UPA2. The least the PM can do now is to lay down his office without becoming a victim to his anxiety to sit tight in the gaddi.and FIRs must be filed against ARaja and Maran Dr Mrs Hilda Raja Vadodara

    If MM Singh goes away, the Congress President will look for another puppet or with the entusiastic support of her yes-men instal Rahul as PM straightaway. MM Singh’s resignation is no solution to the problem; the public shoul wake up to the dangers the country is facing because of the Congress ‘s non-governance and see that the Party and its allies are shown the door in every election from now on.

    M’M,
    Once again a hard hitting article and congrats ! I too feel in similar way and wish to share my views.
    It is getting murkier and murkier day by day – I mean la affaire 2 G.
    The Congress party is claiming moral high ground and seem to be saying that since they have forced Telecom Minister A.Raja to resign the matter should end there.
    In fact the real matter has started only now. It is obvious that the Minister was not the only one involved in this humongous scam creating a new bench mark in corruption – in terms of the loot involved.
    If he had the temerity to overlook/ignore the recommendations/advice/suggestions given by some of his cabinet colleagues /depts and going ahead with granting licences left right and centre to any Tom,Dick and Harry, just on first come first served basis, there must be some strong clout for him to fall back upon if there were this sort of outcry.

    “Coalition Dharma” is a much maligned word now a days and in reality means that a tail can wag the dog since the dog is made to feel as though it cannot exist without it.

    Was the support of the DMK party so important/indispensible that the P.M. – whose personal integrity is impeccable- could do nothing to tame the Minister to follow his recommendation of taking the auction route to award licences?

    Whatever be the personal integrity/unimpeachable incorrupibility etc of Dr.M.M.Singh, he is being seen as a weak P.M. having to bow to every other pressure from his coalition partners and sometime even his own party colleagues for the sake of running the Govt.
    Such a sensitive person that he is, what prevented him from putting his foot down saying he will not tolerate any misdeeds of his cabinet colleagues come what may, even losing his power? Is he also clinging to power at any cost?
    Or is it the case of the TINA factor? (There Is No other Alternative)

    If he was afraid of losing the support of DMK there is always the unconditional support of Lalu, Mulayam,Mayawati et al.

    Therefore it is sad that such an honourable man is perceived to be forced to look the other way when so many scams are happening around him – all in thousands of crores-the CWG scam, The Adarsh Scam to name a few.

    We saw a different MMS when the nuclear bill was being taken up but now what we see is a pale shadow of the same person- weak, helpless- almost like the Bhishma Pitamah with so many arrows on his body.

    There is more than meets the eye in these sordid episodes and the can of worms have started to come out in swarms and one wonders how many skeletons are going to come out of the cup boards.

    It is not good for the image of our country esp when we are fighting for a place in the security council at the U.N.

    God save our country!

    If MMS-puppet goes away, Antonia will win. Consider the following equation:

    In a chessboard, you have a pawn in a front-square (mms). The opposing players force the removal of this pawn, it will be replaced with antonio’s ambitious / favorite piece (raul vinci).

    The best way is to play this game of chess by keeping pressure on the pawn, but not actually taking it.

    Dr.Swamy understood this very well.

    @Shankar,

    I am not sure whether MMS is bheeshma or not, but for me he looks more like Dhrithraashtra pithaashree.
