      Deny it. She is trying to get her position in the party back. Husband is just an excuse. There are doctorts who can take care of her husband. She can rot in jail. Her husband can visit her.

        At this stage do not give any parole. Only if her is being being operated, then a parole of just 5 days is more than enough. Politicians make medical cases, they do not occur on their own. Treat her just like any other jailed citizen.

          Under our rotten system she will get parole after parole. Laloo is free man, Omprakash Chautala is enjoying 5 star hospital. Raju of Satyam is a free man. The court cases against politicians and powerful is a waste in india.

            so true. A bullet is probably the best verdict from a local policeman. No need to waste time and money.
