This is where Congress trumps BJP hands-down. Congress NEVER dumps it members for bribery or corruption. Sex escapades - however - are unpardonable. No wonder they are always cash-rich, but bereft of smart people.
In contrast, BJP continues to tangle itself to protect its 'party with difference' image. It is good that the judgement was finally passed. One less in the long list of backlogs. One can only wonder what took our lousy judges so long.
I think the BJP is making a huge mistake in forsaking their dalit poster boy in his hour of need. Bangaru laxman at best is gui;lty of being naieve and behaved in a senseless manner. The Prevention of Corruption Act clearly draws a link between illegal gratification and a "public interest". In this case there was none as the Thelka outfit entrapped him. This judgement will be thrown out in the appeal stage and the BJP must not abandon its poster boy now as it will prove very costly. Unfortunatley the faction ridden BJP is being pulled in different direction by Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley and the party is behaving in an irrespobsible manner.
Where have Arun Jetley, Arun Shourie, Sushma Swaraj, Jaya Jetley, and the top Brahminical guns fled? Poor poster boy Shahnawaz Hussain has been put to disgrace the disgraced Bangaru. A minority gunning at a dalit. Dear Shahnawaz! your days will end in the same, if not worse manner. Don't feel elated. Ask Omar Abdullah who was minister of state in MEA. He was despatched to Durban to tell lies to the world conference in 2002. After that he was thrown out.
The face of the Hindu Party is now exposed over Bangaru.
