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.
Details on Ottavio Quattrocchi,bofors scam and Congress government’s alleged involvement in the scam.
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.
May you all agree that blaming only our government does not help. We are to a great extent responsible for the ills in the country. When we count corruption we target straight at the government but do we not do our share of corruption too? And if we do not do so, do we stop people from doing the same ?
