She meets so many people. That does not mean that she does what all those people do

every society and sugar factory in Maharashtra started with a loan and hers was not an exception

Seventy-six societies of a similar kind are sick in Maharashtraso many institutions fail

so many banks and co-operatives fail

Twenty-six of them have notices issued on normal cause

She meets so many people. That does not mean that she does what all those people do

she was the chairperson only for a certain period

was not linked to the bank in any official capacity

No single notice to her and no personal guarantee

she has never been in charge of loan-disbursement

She has been associated with an entity that entity is in the process of dealing on a securitisation notice. What is the moral issue here

she was the chairperson only for a certain period

It’s neither corruption nor nepotism

in a co-operative bank, if members of the family are there, what is there so surprising

only two of her relatives were to re-pay a loan of just Rs 32 lakhs

It’s her family members. How does it indict her?

It’s neither corruption nor nepotism

Many wrong things, mistaken things have been said and done by other parties

all those people who are guilty of that are now holding high posts

The people who are leveling charges now never blinked an eye when one would-be prime minister was charged and tried in court

Our moral authority is demonstrated in the fact that we insisted that no communal person or belonging to a communal party, should be nominated

Many wrong things, mistaken things have been said and done by other parties

Offstumped Bottomline: 

This is not about Patil versus Shekhawat.

This is not about the UPA versus the BJP.

This is not even about the Left versus the Right.

 It is about the Right versus the Wrong.

When public conscience is reduced to a moral vaccum, politics becomes a bottomless pit inhabited by politicians aspiring for the least common moral denominator.

Point to Ponder for Pratibha Patil and her most voluble defenders – the verbal gymnast Abhishek Manu Singhvi and the electile dysfunctional A.B. Bardhan.
