Why is the government saying that the Law Minister can influence the CBI? Didn't the same government during the Lokpal debate say that the CBI is completely independent and does not depend on the whims and fancies of the government?
How long will people like Salman Khurshid and Soli Sorabjee wait to indict the Law Minister as well as the Prime Minister. This shows that people like Salman Khurshid have no sense of propriety and are hanging on to power.
Justice JS Verma's stint as the NHRC Chairman laid the foundations for the later rulings of the Supreme Court on the Gujarat riots. It also set a precedent for the way investigative cases were to be dealt in future.
Under the new Lokayukta passed in the state of Gujarat the Chief Minister will have the last say in matters of appointment and functioning. This is a further dilution of the already weak Lokayukta in the state.
Raid on the DMK leader Stalin clearly shows that the CBI can be held hostage to the ruling party. Not just that calling off the raid only goes to confirm that CBI has become a slave to the wishes of the Congress.
The government can easily invoke the UN Convention against Transnational Organised Crime to extract information about AgustaWestland deal from Italy, yet Salman Khurshid pleads helplessness much like his predecessor Solanki in the Bofors case.
Unless there is huge push from the top echelons of the government, there cannot be such brazen collusion in the 2G case between the accused and the CBI public prosecutor, on a case that was monitored almost everyday by the Supreme Court.
