Funny Cartoon on Court asking CBI why former PM Manmohan Singh not questioned in Hindalco coal block allocation case
funny cartoon image on Prime Minister Singh declaring CBI can question him on Coal Scam and that he had nothing to hide.
Italian businessman Ottavio Quattrocchi, a suspect in the Bofors scam,that gave Congress real tough time for decades, has died of a heart attack in Milan.in 2011, CBI had dropped the cases against him declaring lack of evidence however the former CBI chief ,Joginder Singh,claimed the investigating body was in tremendous pressure from the government while probing the bofors scam. Quattrocchi allegedly acted as a middleman in the scam and his closeness to the Gandhi family and success in evading trial in India have long raised questions on whether he was shielded by the Congress.
While officially, he was no more threat to the Congress after CBI dropped the cases against him,still, the unofficial chance of knowing the exact truth of Bofors Scam seem to have been buried with the death of Quattrocchi.
Govt can use CBI and put one in jail says Mulayam Singh and probably that is the only reason he yells out poison against Congress and yet never leaves UPA ! 😉

YSR Congress Party with 17 MLAs and 2 MPs and headed by Jagan Mohan Reddy who is not in good terms with Congress after CBI has arrested him on charges of disproportionate assets case has decided to support UPA candidate Pranab Mukherjee !
Though the party has declared their decision in favour of national interest and above politics and tered abstaining from voting for Presidential Election as against ethics. But, as they say, in politics favors are bond to be returned with counter-favors,it is likely that after the Presidential Election things will start easing out for Jagan for his loyalty and support to the ruling UPA government’s Candidate.
Team Anna member, Arvind Kejriwal says not the CBI but an independent body should investigate coal scam as CBI would surely give Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh, a clean chit.
