Why We Need An Effective Opposition

Frankly, it is more than a disgrace. It is digusting. The only -- very dim, barely visible -- silver lining is that media pressure is forcing politicians to -- however mildly -- murmur words of disagreement even if it is merely to save face.

"I personally believe that perhaps more diligence should have been made before issuing these orders [for grant of parole to Manu Sharma]. The fact that he has already gone back (to jail) does not make a difference now," Congress leader Sachin Pilot said while participating in a TV programme.

Asked whether it was a mistake for the Delhi government to have recommended parole for Sharma, Pilot said, "Well I am not Delhi chief minister. From whatever I know of the case, if I was the chief minister I would probably not have given the parole".

And what is really sobering in all this is that even the news of Manu Sharma being out on parole would have gone totally unreported had he not got into another brawl in a nightclub -- and that too with none other than the son of the Delhi Police Commissioner himself.
