The cat is coming out of the box. The UPA Ministers, one after another is coming in support of Kumaramangalam Birla, who is facing CBI enquiry on the charges of criminal conspiracy and corruption charges in allotment of coal fields, along with former Coal Secretary P.C.Parakh.
What these Cabinet Ministers are saying?
“I can not fathom how a case of impropriety can be made against business icon Kumaramangalam Birla?” – Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma.
“Recent incidents will dampen business confidence and investment” – Minister of state Corporate Affairs Sachin Pilot.
“I do not agree with the way people’s names are dragged in to controversies” – Minister of State Telecom and Shipping Milind Deora
“We seem to have set out to turn the clock back to an era where profit was dirty word” – Minister Information and BroadcasTing Manish Tewari.
These are real threatening words to the CBI. The above are Ministers in the UPA government who have got maximum influence in the party and the government.This is a warning to the CBI not to prove the case further. Further they very well know that as in the case of 2G scam, this coal scam also will move towards the Prime Minister.
Another aspect of the sayings is that it is not wrong to use any method to maximise the profits of the corporates; it is their right to increase their profits in any way and nobody can question them.
These are all known to the people; but now it has openly been admitted by the top leaders of the UPA government themselves. Have they forgotten the often said words – ” Justice will take its own Course”.
Post Script: The Coal secretary P.C.Parakh has openly stated that ” If CBI thinks I am wrong, then PM is also equally responsible” ” That there is the approval of the PM is on file. It is not oral”. But has the CBI got the guts to question PM?
