These politicians never understand that economic offences are committed by businessmen in collusion with corrupt bankers under the able advice of ‘financial and legal wizards’ and politics doesn’t have much of a role. Though sometimes bankers listen to their ‘advices‘. The system should be cable of early detection of misuse and diversion. Politicians come to play only when there is wilful default and the looter scoots: that is when ‘horse has bolted the stable’. It is a well known fact that they run out of the country ‘with their blessings’ before the scam breaks out in the open.
Thus the politicians should be held responsible only when ‘the law doesn’t take its own course’. Look at the bedlam unveiled when Mallya and Nirav ran out of the country. The whole opposition mischievously ganged up to blame the present regime though the scams date back to the earlier dispensation. The opposition could probably succeed in convincing the public that the present regime has not only a role in the scam but also responsible for the letting them out of the country. The later part might well be answered by the ‘systems and procedures in place!’
It is ironic that Mamta retorts from the roof top that the credit for the attest of the fugitive jeweller Nirav modi should go to the daily Telegraph reporter and NOT TO BJP? The other joker and the ‘family’ stooge Gulam Nabi Azad declares that the fugitive will be returned back to London ‘after the elections’.
Mamta reacted almost in the same way when Balakot retaliation took place: congratulated specifically ‘IAF’! Hilarious, isn’t it? With the queuing up many extraditions such as of Michel and the likes, they fear that the ‘chowkidhar’ status to Modi might well sell. If the fugitives flee the country, Narendra Modi is responsible but when they are extradited it is due to Scotland Yard! Obviously, the opposition leaders are extremely nervous of getting ‘decimated’.
But, apart from Nirav’s arrest being a clear sign that this is not the same India which will allow economic offenders to loot the country & evade the long arm of law, Some questions linger in the minds:
How for almost a year or so he was able to conduct business incognito and also travel in out of UK inspite of Interpol’s ‘red alert notice’?
Even after days of his being spotted in busy London street by a news reporter, why was he not arrested?
When the likes of Mallya could get easily bail even without a day of life in jail, why he couldn’t?
It is very difficult to understand not only who is accountable for the white collar crimes but also when to arrest the culprits. With Nirav not getting the bail and spending ‘Holi‘ day at prison, It is even more difficult to predict who would jump the bail!
