Subscribe to Oneindia News

Muzaffarnagar, Sept 16: As Congress President Sonia Gandhi, vice president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister landed in Muzaffarnagar to meet the riot affected people in Uttar Pradesh, there were a lot of complaints and tear shedding. But to no avail, Manmohan Singh's placid presence with an expressionless face did not give away what was going on his mind.

However, there was one emotional moment, where even he could not restrain himself from wiping the tears of a common man. But sir, is that enough? In your 9 years of career as the PM of India, don't you think you should have wiped many more tears.

Of course, we are not drawing direct references, but there are political incidents that have indirectly affected our lives.

Some of them are:

Coal scam (2012)

The government meted out a loss of Rs 1.86 lakhs crore to the exchequer due to the irregularities in the auctioning of 194 coal blocks. The government had decided not to auction these blocks between 2004 and 2011, which meant huge loss for the country.

Chopper scam (2012)

Probably the most shameful of all scams, it was alleged that Former Indian Air Force Chief Air Chief Marshal S P Tyagi was paid bribes to swing a Rs 3,600 crore deal for procuring 12 choppers from Italian firm Finmeccanica to ferry VVIPS.

Cash for vote scam (2011)

The real face of Congress was exposed on July 22, 2011, when three BJP members - Ashok Argal, Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Bhagora - flashed Rs 1 crore cash in Lok Sabha, alleging that it was given to them by floor managers of the UPA government to secure their support during the no-confidence motion. This was allegedly done after the Left parties withdrew their support over the Indo-US nuclear deal.

Rajya Sabha MP,Amar Singh's home was the place from where the money was allegedly disbursed to willing MPs.

2G Spectrum scam (2008)

In 2008, the country incurred losses of RS 1.76 lakh crore as 122 new telecom licences were issued to ineligible domestic companies that had little or no experience in the telecom sector, that too at a price set in 2001.

So, Manmohanji, its high time that the wiping of the tears and the dirt in Indian politics is finally done, but by others.
