Seven policemen are now in trouble for hugging Sanjay Dutt after his release from the Yerrawada jail.
That is a little strange. If you want to sack govt employees for this kind of thing, maybe you want to see what should be done about people like Priya Dutt and Kapil Sibbal (both MPs, mind you)…story here:
Priya Dutt said her family was exploring the possibilities of getting relief for Sanjay, who was sentenced to rigorous imprisonment for six years by a special court in Mumbai after being convicted for illegally possessing an AK-56 rifle and a 9mm pistol.
“We are seeing what could be the best legal recourse for him. Our main focus is to see what we can do to get relief for him,” Priya told reporters.
Union Minister for Science and Technology Kapil Sibal said the Congress party should stand by the Dutt family at this time of “stress and trouble.”
“Sunil Dutt, Sanjay’s father, was a staunch Congressman and he symbolised and epitomised what Congress stands for. The party should stand by the Dutt family,” he said on the sidelines of a function in Delhi.
Sibal said he would not comment on the merit of the case and there was no difference in the party regarding the support to be given to the Dutt family.
That is what we Indians need: MPs who are more bothered about getting convicts out of jail than getting them arrested.
Yes. That is surely in the national interest !
Did you say double-standards ? What double-standards ? Shouldn’t you be dead in a bomb-blast somewhere ?
