Morally Dead – All of them

20 Apr

BJP MP Babubhai Katara tried to sneak a woman out of the country. He tried to do it using his wife’s diplomatic passport.

Now the Congress is calling the BJP morally defunct. Its like the pot calling the kettle black. I think the whole political system sucks. It has nothing to do with party, these morons will do anything for money.

Should we be issuing diplomatic passports to MP’s? After all a large percentage of them have crimimal records.

As the Deccan Herald says in its editorial today:

Corruption and involvement in crime are qualities that cut across political lines.

36% of BSP candidates have a criminal record. The SP, BJP, and Congress account for 31%, 20% and 25% respectively of people from a criminal background.

    Shame on our whole political set up.
    When will these morons understand that 75% of India is no more illiterates, as used to be in the past?

    These people are just doing mud-thrashing excercise, in which all of them are going to be in the filth.

    Whether its BJP or Congress, doesnt matter, all that matters is..we need more responsible and respectable representation for this country.

    But explain this to me… this MP has risked so much for just 30 lakhs? It must either be a case of
    a) 30 lakhs still represents a significant value in terms of money for national level politicians. In which case I am glad that money involved in corruption situations are not that mind-numbing as I imagined.
    b) or Sheer Greed – that the temptation of a mere 30 lakhs is too hard to resist for this pathetic man and his ilk
    c) or Unimaginable stupidity. He probably overestimated his invincibility and/or underestimated the risk involved.

    Adi: Diplomatic Passport allows you easy access through immigration locally. It also gives you some kind of diplomatic immunity (sometimes)… Heres a Wikipedia extract:

    Diplomatic Passports are issued to diplomats and diplomatic representatives of a home country, and other state employees according to the rules of a particular country. Having a Diplomatic passport does not necessarily accord the bearer diplomatic immunity. Some countries’ visa requirements may have different requirements for Diplomatic and non-Diplomatic passports.

    MP: As Vinay says money is money… remember that “Money for Questions” scandal.. these guys sell themselves for as little as Rs. 15,000.

    These kind of news from India puts us in a more shameful position for people like me who are outside India , this news was showing in the TV in the bus I couldnt help putting my head down in shame when other passengers (not Indians) seemed amused. The question is will there be punishment for the offence? so it never occurs again or will it be the same old story?

    @Sudip: I guess you have put up with it… like we do.. I lived outside India for 10 years..
    @Neel3: Wow !! That is anger…

    for those blaming ‘our politicians’ and hanging their heads in shame, don’t think that the grass is greener on the other side! politicians are a breed apart.

    you talk of corruption at the political level.I am sick of the corruption in government offices.There no such thing as receiving money ‘under’ the table.it is all over the table these days.And to top it a man’s worth in the marriage market is judged by the ‘oopar ki kamai’ that his job fetches him.Sickening.BTW thanks for dropping at my blogspace.looking forward to more comments.

    Padma: It is indeed sickening…the problem here is no one in govt can point a finger at another. ALL of them are “dirty”… thanks for dropping by…

    really sick of the dirty politicians few of them make country and country men bow their head in shame
    all for money what they are going to do with this money can they carry it when they depart from this land. stooping to this level is toomuch. electorate should wake up and teach them a lesson but no option you have to elect another politician only what a sad state of affairs.
