It is known that justice is best served cold, but it is frozen for the former ruling party ‘Congress’. The last tenure of the Congress was the tenure of scams and indeed they are very proud of this. That’s why the ever defending party spokespersons are always ready to face the media and there will be a day when they will be appointed as the criminal lawyer in the courts (due to their defending abilities). The corruption scams in India left the country deprived of the resources.
The former Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has been summoned finally in the Coal Scam India case by the CBI in the special court and he has been accused of several charges that include criminal conspiracy, corruption and breach of trust by a public servant. Actually, he should not be accused of the last charge because of two reasons
- First of all he was not the servant of public rather he was serving the Congress high command Mrs. Gandhi.
- And secondly, he never breached their trust he always kept his mouth shut never commenting and responding to anything at all.
The Coalgate scam is not the only scam that was held during the reign of UPA but it is the one that affected the Prime Minister of the country directly as being an economist Dr. Manmohan was directly involved in the allocation of the coal blocks to the different companies. And what comes to the surprise is the trial that was held regarding this case during the tenure of the UPA was totally under the influence and this is really a brow raising issue. This can be said because no question were raised or asked both by the judges and the investigating agencies about the involvement of the former prime minister.
The opposition congress had faced a huge embarrassment during the UPA II regime with an investigation into the coal scam directly implicating the then Prime Minister’s office. But still, in the today’s report against the summoning of former PM the spokesperson of the Indian Congress Party Manish Tewari said “the former Prime minister and the former government conducted itself with utmost transparency”. Now at this point making this kind of lame statements is just so absurd on the All India Congress Party’s part.
In a major setback to the government, the Supreme Court in September last year had cancelled 214 of the 218 coal blocks allocated by the successive governments since 1993 and gave the companies awarded coal licenses six months to wind up their operations.
