While Sanjay Dutt has been cleared of being involved in any terrorist plotting and/or activities related to the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts incident , he has been found guilty of possessing AK 56 rifle in his house and this ammunition belonged to the consignment which was a part of arms and ammunition which was illegally smuggled to India for conducting the bomb blast! Amid, former police commissioner who had investigated the bomb blast says dropping Sanjay Dutt off TADA (on request of Sunil Dutt to the police department and the government to show mercy)charges was department’s biggest mistake.
Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to serve 5 years for keeping illegal arms and as he has already served 1 and 1/2 years previously , he has to serve another 3 and 1/2 years to complete his sentence. Meanwhile, there are voices which are rising in favour of him sighting he has already suffered a lot since last 20 years . Influential voices from the government, keepers of law,other politicians and Bollywood wanting Sanju Baba to be spared has been rising !
Justice Markandey Katju,Film Director, Mahesh Bhatt,Jaya Bachchan and many big names want Sanju Baba be spared and there are indeed provisions in law which may ease things for ‘Munna Bhai’ of Bollywood !
Well, being his fan, it would be great to see him out of the mess but is it fair to be favouring him just because he is a celebrity ? There are hundreds of cases sited by the media where commoners suffering jail terms are eligible to be excused of serving jail any further !
what do you say ?
Beni Prasad Verma , the much controversial Union Steel Minister,who once belonged to the SP(now in Congress) had previously accused SP supremo ,Mulayam Singh of having ‘terrorist connections’ in a rally. This had created a big chaos in the House as well where Mulayam and Beni,attacked each other verbally. Beni did not seem being sorry about his statement while SP demanded his resignation from his post as a compensation of their supremo’s insult from the government. Meanwhile,DMK(an ally of current government) quit the government over the Sri Lanka issue which could cripple the government if SP (which is supporting the UPA government from outside) takes its hands off due to Beni’s statement !
While Beni Prasad went to meet Manmohan Singh , the Prime Minister, Sonia met Mulayam Singh (probably to convince him to calm down on Beni Prasad’s issue). Sooner than later, Beni Prasad stated he regretted if his remarks (on Mulayam) hurt sentiments and that he apologizes for the same . 😀
Well, this is what we call politics . Nobody is a permanent friend or foe ! 😀
Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh, has sent a strong warning to Italy to send the two Italian marines back to India who are facing charges of killing two Indian fishermen . With orders from Supreme Court of India the two marines were allowed to go back to Italy for attending elections and were scheduled to be coming back within 22nd of March’13. While the Italian Foreign Ministry has declared that the marines won’t be sent back to India for trial, all the pre-assurance from the officials of the country to the Supreme Court of India stood void. With the opposition targeting the government for being ‘soft’ on the issue because it has to do with Italy , PM Singh probably had to warn Italy of ‘consequences’ if the marines are not returned !
Looks like,the issue is bound to take up a big shape soon. Till then India should be celebrating that our PM has broken his silence at last and its a clear message -” Don’t Angry Me” . 🙂
