The more I read about Niira Radia the more my admiration for her grows. Boy, can she get things done. I vote for Julian assange as Time Man of the Year and Radia as Indian Person of the Year. Both, for better or worse, have well and truly shaken the polity.
Can we have her as Foreign Minister please.
The tape's revelation of Radia is holding the sway and determining who the Telecom minister should be show how morally bankrupt the Congress has becomine to go to bed with the DMK and its leader, Karunanidhi, who is the Godfather of Indian venality, for convenience: to forming a government at the centre.
recently in madras ,shasthri bhavan where the passport office functions the tamilnadu police arrested some brokers on the charges of fleecing the passport applicants in order to get passports and connected services. poor fellows they are making their livelihood and doing a small service. but radia and co who were brokering for minister appointment s are scot free . why this double standard. poor passport brokers arrested and power brokers spared.Manmohansingh if he runs a proper and open government he need not for the dnager to democracy. whee is your mum sonia ans prince rahul .find them they will be save democracy
