'Diversionary press conference by INC' - Only court cases in 'lalitgate' will get justice to people of India. By Hem Raj Jain
17 Jun 2015
Out of ~ 68 years (except for ~ 11 years) the political party Indian National Congress (INC) remained in power as government of India (GOI) hence INC is an asset to India in the sense that it has maximum experience of running the government. But INC is a liability also for India because it considers people of India at the rudimentary level of political knowledge & Intelligence as it was in 1947.
This letter (http://pakistanchristianpost.com/viewarticles.php?editorialid=2434 ) in addition to media was sent to all national office bearers of INC before noon but INC in its afternoon press conference indulged only in diversion as explained below:-
(1)- (i)- Where was the need for INC to demand new SIT to probe ‘lalitgate’ (as is popularly called in media) when the Supreme Court of India (SCI) has appointed the Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by former apex court judge Justice M B Shah for black-money probe. Hence by this time INC should have petitioned SCI (this SIT) to probe this lalitgate case also (regarding black money)
(ii)- SCI (this SIT) will entertain NIC petition for probe into lalitgate for the simple reason as mentioned by INC at Tuesday press conference that the decision of not to appeal (against August 27, 2014 order of Delhi High Court, restoring passport of Lalit Modi) cannot be of merely Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj but of Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley hence of entire GOI including PM Modi. Therefore GOI cannot be trusted about any investigation in lalitgate hence need for SIT probe under SCI.
(iii)- Because under Article 142 (1) of the Constitution SCI in the exercise of its jurisdiction may pass such decree or make such order as is necessary for doing complete justice in any cause or matter (in this case SIT for black money) pending before it, hence SCI can include lalitgate matter too in black money matter already sub-judice.
(iv)- If SCI (its SIT probing black money) does not accept the petition and directs NIC to demand another SIT for lalitgate then only INC should have demanded another SIT (and that too first through SCI).
(v)- Therefore by demanding new SIT in press conference and not moving SCI ( Black money related SIT), the NIC is diverting the issue and denying people of India justice in lalitgate.
(2)- In this Tuesday press conference INC did not raise the said issue of Criminal Contempt proceedings against Sushma Swaraj under section 2 ( C) (ii) (iii) of Contempt of Court Act. Like other political parties INC is also responsible (rather mainly responsible as has been in power most of the time at Centre and in States) for not allowing political culture of ‘Rule-of-Law’ to develop in India . Entire Indian Judiciary (Lower Courts, District Courts, High Courts and Supreme Court) simply do not bother about criminal contempts committed by citizens and presiding officers of the courts (to be tried under section 15 and 16 of Contempt of Court Act) and this condonance of crimes by Indian Judiciary has not only made ‘ease of doing business in India’ a joke but has also made justice illusory especially for general public of India (because these criminal contempts are mostly done by and at the behest of economically powerful people). It is hoped that INC, without any further delay, will make course correction and will take this matter of Criminal Contempt by Sushma Swaraj, seriously.
(3)- (i)- It seems in Tuesday press conference the INC did not raise the issue of black money used by BJP because INC also must be using black money for its party and election purpose. If INC is really serious about the interest of the people of India then it should, without any further delay, highlight the reason behind GOI protecting (as mentioned above) the black money accused Lalit Modi, for the simple reason that Narendra Modi (through Amit Shah) must be arranging funds out of black money from people like Lalit Modi.
(ii)- In a nutshell all the political parties (especially INC) should not dilute the matter of lalitgate by merely discussing & highlighting conflict-of-interest of Sushma Swaraj but of entire GOI headed by PM Modi.
As far Rajasthan Chief Minister of BJP Vasundhara Raje’s involvement in lalitgate (as reported in media Tuesday evening that in August, 2011 Raje backed Lalit Modi’s UK immigration application on the condition that her support was not made known to the Indian Authorities) it is expected that INC will move Rajasthan High Court to ensure that Raje (then the Leader Of Opposition in Rajasthan, a Cabinet Minister rank) is prosecuted for helping and abetting fugitive from law.
