    This is just a tip of the iceberg. If the investigating agencies are given independence you will see thousands of such BJP corruption cases all over India. If you total it up, it will be more than double the earlier scams of the UPA ! If there is a Non-BJP government at the center in 2019, you will see all these BJP corruption specialists being exposed.
