Mr Prime Minister has recently faced a lot of criticism for coming forth only for “Mann ki baat” and no “Kaam ki baat”. Jokes, memes, hash tags, news hour debates, newspapers, all have been flooding the public domain pointing towards the Prime Minister’s silence over several issues that need more contemplation.
Involvement of the Foreign Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj and the CM of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje for projecting impropriety and helping the IPL fugitive Lalit Modi, has been choked with inarticulate agony.
As has been the trend of the Indian polity for decades now, when the news breaks, it attracts heaps and loads of attention. With all possible revelations that could have been bought out in the open, the news began to die and the politicians indubitably pushed the issue away and maintained their silence over the same.
The frenzy and brouhaha of the nexus between Lalit Modi and the BJP leaders had not even hushed down that the Vyapam Scam picked up momentum.
The mysterious deaths of the accused in the admission and recruitment scam simmering for nearly a decade now called for an immediate probe into the matter which was in accordance to the NaMo cadre not required. The autopsy reports of Namrata Damor had witnessed some foul play. The murder was projected as a suicide attempt.
BJP has in fact shown support to Shivraj Singh Chouhan for not intervening in the Vyapam scam.
Mr Narendra Modi has continued to show the Manmohan Singh-like silence despite so much going on in his tenure of rule. He has evidently not been vocal enough to speak out in situations where his own party stands accountable on many fronts.
Well, it didn’t surprise anyone much. BJP in the past has failed in fulfilling promises it had vociferously been talking about during the elections held in 2014. Whether it was the fake degree issue surrounding the HRD Minister, Mrs Smriti Zubin Irani or the nonchalant efforts in getting justice for martyr Saurabh Kalia, the hydra-headed BJP has been a disappointment for many.
However, Mr Narendra Modi has been making foreign trips and has been focusing on Make in India extensively, he somehow seems to have forgotten the core issues that need a lot of time and consideration from him at present. The V VIPs wearing the BJP cloak who have been crusaders of corruption need to be checked on.
Mr Narendra Modi must now acquiesce the bigotry of his leaders and take responsibility for the same before the ebullient PM’s stoic image is besmirched and sullied.
