Re: Raju Brothers did nothing compared to Indian Politicians
I largely agree with Ms Anjali Deshpande. I, however, want to bring to your notice that Satyam episode has nothing novel about it. The nexus of business and politics has been highlighted several times since Independence. Please recall Mundhara episode and the debates in Parliament, books on and inquiries into the affairs of the Birla House and the Vivian Bose Commission's huge report on Dalmia-Jain affairs, in which there is a chapter "Outside Witnesses", which is very instructive to read. It says JP, who later became Lok Nayak and a "symbol" of all that is good in our polity, tendered evidence to help Damia-Jain and this evidence was unceremoniously rejected by Justice Bose as worthless. Almost all political parties survive on the money coming from corporate sector, which in return gets more than adequate compensation. This reduces public accountability of political parties and their leaders. Take the case of UP, Sanjay Dalmia, Jayant Malhotra, Anil Ambani, etc. were sent to Rajya Sabha by paries that are supposed to be committed to Lohiaite and Ambedkarite ideologies. Girish Mishra
