What is Political Vandetta? The literal meaning of Vandetta is “an often prolonged series of retaliatory, vengeful, or hostile acts or exchange of such acts”. Most of the biggies in India or in any country support one or more political parties. These political parties could be in and out of power based on the elections and they are either ruling party or opposition. If anyone is indicted with corruption, CBI will take it up for investigation and it doesn’t matter which party they belong to.
Regarding Jr and Sr Chidambaram, the case and the proofs are quite clear. Many TV anchors are understanding and explaining on TV channels. Then why is it referred as Political Vandetta? It is quite evident that Karti Chidambaram used his father’s power in the cabinet as Finance Minister and got many approvals. The Conflict of interest is very clear and he is not supposed to be doing such favors.
CBI raided every house and every office related to Karti Chidambaram and his friends/partners in business. Many from TN believe that the father and son are corrupt, or son is more corrupt, but father helped the son. People can see that these two are not saying they are innocent or answering any specific questions. They both are just making general statements against the raid and diverting the topic is well know tactic by politicians. Chidambaram says BJP is taking revenge because he is being critical in his writing against the ruling government. But as Piyush Goyal says, no one even reads his book or his articles and it is true. Even Congress supporters might not be reading his articles in newspapers as they publish them because of his status.
If every case filed against political opponents is claimed to be Political Vandetta, then it should be ignored. Otherwise, the politicians take this as immunity and continue their corruption. It becomes never ending saga. In Israel, many ex-ministers are in jails because of their corrupt actions while ruling the country. Subramanian Swamy filed cases against many politicians including Chidambaram and the CBI took it’s own time to act on them. Indians can only hope for justice as India is a democratic country.
