Commenced in 1938 by Jawaharlal Nehru, the National Herald newspaper got popularity not only because of its English writing but also from its associated scandals. Indian National Congress was and still involved with all its spoiled activities.
The newspaper was brought down twice in 1977 when Indira Gandhi was defeated in the election. That created the Emergency situation. The long history of this case makes it even a big concerning factor for Indian society. Hard-earned money of poor Indians have been used for self-motives by politicians. On top of it Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are raising fingers on PM Modi for doing the political vendetta. Instead of targeting Subramanian Swamy who has registered the National Herald case against Gandhi family, Congressi are after Modi to politicize the issue.
We have seen family drama TV serial ‘Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ for many years that depicted so many ups and downs in Shanti Niketan family. The chemistry of Saas Bahu in Indian politics is also very popular but its meanings have slightly changed. Even corruption charges are also passed onto the family tree in Indian politics. For one family the whole India is suffering because its associated members are not allowing parliament to run properly wherein several main bills like GST (Goods and Services Tax) are pending.
Those days are gone when kings and queens used to pass on their throne to their kin. In democratic country like India a leader should be elected by seeing his talent and enthusiasm to do something for the nation in place of his family background.
The drama and dharna (a non-violent sit-in protest with vicious aims) are the agenda of political parties like Congress and AAP. And now criticizing the center government for their role in weakening opposition is not digestible. Leaders of NDA are also involved in corruption cases and they should also go through the judiciary process.
Subramanian Swamy is not only a politician but remained as the chief Indian economist and professor in the world’s most popular universities like Harvard. His charges and observations are taken after deep thoughts. So his charges against Gandhis in National Herald case a strong point to provide in court.
