Congress Saturday said the BJP government’s decision to allot a bungalow to Subramanian Swamy, the petitioner in National Herald case, was an “award for dragging the Congress leadership to court”. “He has been given Z-category security and allotted a government bungalow. He is not an MP nor from a border state. He is not facing any threat from any terrorist organisation…The bungalow was given as an award for dragging the Congress leadership to court,” said Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, “Swamy is a stooge of PM Narendra Modi, he is a mask that Modi and BJP is using to unleash malicious political vendetta.”He also defended the decision to convert Associated Journals Ltd (AJL) into a Section 8 non-profit company, asserting that the move wasn’t related to the case. “The plan was to convert AJL into a non-profit company so that no one can use it assets, no one can make a single rupee of financial benefit,” he said. “The conversion was part of the 2011 revival plan for National Herald. It was decided much before Swamy’s complaint,” he added.

    The present Indian central government has lost all respect from governments and people around the world. 31% of Indian voters have elected a bunch of uneducated, uncultured rogues to run the country (true, the uncultured and anti-democratic Jaitley lost the elections, but was put there by his photoshopped master with primary level education). This uncultured Jaitley has disgraced India by most likely getting the CBI to do something against what the law provides. CBI likes to claim that the raid was against the corrupt. But CBI is not police. A state government must make an official request with the competent authority to get the CBI to conduct any investigations. This was not done in the present case. It is the central government which miserably failed on the political front with AAP is now haring the elected Government of Delhi. Why? Because, the AAP government is not siding with the business houses. The central government is all about being friendly with the business houses. Billionaires. Hence the harment. Mr Kejriwal must take this case to the Supreme Court. Note that the CBI is carefully avoiding to investigate any of the corrupt politicians from the BJP. The world is watching.

            Why not? If a criminal can enjoy tax payer paid benefits, it is worth providing some one who has spent his entire life bringing out these criminals to account. Infact this gentleman deserves to be awarded Bharat Ratna. He never aspired to hold a public office just for the sake of enjoying perks and public glare. Instead he chose to dedicate his life getting high cl criminals who flout around our generosity with money power to account. It is not pretty job any one wants to do. For his capacity as top cl legal mind in the country, he is worth priceless lifestyle but his humble upbringing has made him dedicate his life for this country. He deserves every bit that can help him serve this country without intimidation from thugs and foreign mafia who have hijacked our national icon and using it to bring down this country. This is our second freedom fight and hope it is our last.
