Law Minister Salman Khurshid is bashed by supreme court on his controversial statement in which he said putting businessmen and industrialists in prison will affect the investments in the nation, and it seems that his party and government also agrees with such remarks as no one within the UPA including P.M has objected or questioned his statement.
Most ironic thing here is that such comments have come from none other than but the Law Minister himself, and if we try to analyze his statement it appears that he is proposing different law for corrupt businessmen and industrialists, and he expects judiciary to go soft on the cases against such corrupt businessmen, another perspective of his views is that Law Minister of the world’s largest democracy wants to impose different set of rules for different people, and is actually willing and suggesting to compromise with corruption, and just like government he wants judiciary to turn a blind eye on the corruption spread by industrialists and businessmen, and it’s evident that Khurshid believes that investors have the moral right to spread corruption.
But here I would also like to point out that there is a large group of Industrialists and businessmen in our country who are concerned about the corruption spread by the nexus of Industrialists, Politicians and Bureaucrats, and few days back we saw that 14 businessmen along with some eminent citizens of our country wrote letter to P.M expressing their concerns on this nexus.
So it’s clear that Industrialists and businessmen don’t agree with statement of Law Minister Salman Khurshid and as far as common man is concerned he has already cleared his stand by coming on the street and supporting Lokpal Movement.
Now if we take a look at the entire picture we realize that this government is neither concerned about the views of Industrialists nor it's concerned about the views of common man, and it figures that all they are concerned about is the corrupt people, and there is not even an iota of doubt left that UPA government is trying to protect these corrupt people so that the nexus between these corrupt businessmen, politicians and bureaucrats doesn’t get exposed and UPA doesn’t gets to face further embarrassment.
It really becomes a matter of deep concern when a Law Minister of a democratic country has such bizarre views on such serious issue, and especially at the time when entire nation is fed up of the rampant corruption spread everywhere, and instead of ensuring that justice is done and law isn't misused by powerful people, if law minister himself believes in double standards how come he is going to help and eradicate corruption? And in my view a person with such ideology neither deserve nor has a right to be a part of government in any possible way.
