Tehelka - another successful sting

The sting, aired on TV, showed several Sangh Parivar members involved in the Gujarat riots admitting to mass murder and rape.

''Whatever has happened can be called state-sponsored terrorism. The sting operation shows that the chief minister had a role to play in the incident,'' said B K Hariprasad, General Secretary, Congress.

IMO: sounds like yet another successful Tehelka sting. I well recall the George Fernandes BJP sting, which nearly put paid to Tehelka, because it apparently showed Fernandes riffling through a (quite small) bribe.

Uddhav Thackeray has come forward to defend his tainted chief minister, Narendra Modi. Terming the activists, who are demanding Modi’s arrest, as pseudo-secularists, Thackeray said, “They are mum about the execution of Afzal Guru, a convict in the Parliament attack case. They won’t talk about the Godhra train fire that killed over 100 ramsevaks.” Responding to SP leader Abu Asim Azmi’s demand for Modi’s resignation, Thackeray said, “Azmi should also have demanded Mulayam Singh Yadav’s resignation under whose tenure as the UP chief minister sadhus were gunned down during the Ram temple agitation.”

IMO: It all makes you want to despair about the state of Indian politics. I have to continually remind myself that it could be worse. e.g. In Pakistan, Musharaff and Aziz are believed to have engineered the Kashmir disputes in the 1990s. Just because Indian politics is not brilliantly moral, for incompetence, lies and immorality it is seemingly not a patch on Pakistan (Punjabistan), which is still run, extremely badly and corruptly, by the three A's. Maybe India needs 123, but it should still watch for corruption. UK's present tactic is still the three C's (corruption, corruption and corruption) everywhere, and it shows. It nearly showed on my grave a little while ago, where I narrowly escaped death, and I do not even figure in these bent politico matters.
