BJP leader Subramanian Swamy Tuesday hailed the Supreme Court verdict convicting AIADMK General Secretary V K Sasikala in disproportionate assets case, saying the 20-year-old wait has yielded results and it does not matter which party does corruption but the courts will take a tough stand. Swamy, who had filed the first complaint in 1996 as the then Janata Party chief, said “we have fought for this for 20 years.” On the verdict passed by Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy, he said “we knew that this bench will study the case properly and pass a detailed order.”

Swamy, who has been filing cases against his political opponents, said “this is a huge encouragement for me from the highest court of the land.”

“This judgement shows that it does not matter which party does corruption, the courts will take a tough stand against them,” he said.

The BJP leader said, “I am gratified by the extra note by Justice Roy in placing that corruption is a menace to the society.” Justice Roy, in a separate but concurring judgement, said, “We have expressed deep concern about escalating menace of corruption in the society.”

    Swamy deserves credit but court failed. It took court 20 years speaks in itself. Seems seems to be instance of giving up on high and mighty when they are around, but swift verdict when they p away ( jayalalitha recent demise). Court had to close case as no bigwig was around trying to block case.lt;br/gt;Similarly, bofors verdict will come when Sonia pes away.
