War against corruption
PM Modi has declared an open-war against corruption. Corruption and price rise of essential commodities are going hand in hand. Sky-rocketing prices of essential commodities have come as an excuse for rising corruption. Crores of rupees are looted by the top-echelons to sustain their wealth for future generations. Politicians and top bureaucrats are notable examples for this. Unfortunately rise in income is not commensurate with rise in prices of essential commodities and services. Meanwhile, Modi should bring back the black-money stashed abroad. Modi’s statement that he does not take the nation to wrong path even if some tasks remain undone is appreciated. At least if a good chunk of black-money finds its way back to India, Modi’s stock with people will increase by leaps and bounds. On the other hand, Robert Vadra’s purchase of property in UK for
Rs 19 crore bears testimony to the fact that he is unfazed by the criticism against land dealings in Haryana and Rajasthan. A thorough probe for property purchased in the UK will unravel the truth. But Sonia Gandhi has lost no time to come to the rescue of her son-in-law. The law must be allowed to take its course.
