Opinion: Is The BJP Authorities's Marketing campaign Towards Crime And Corruption Selective?

The latest mountain of money and bullion discovered within the houses of an in depth affiliate of Partha Chatterjee, a senior chief of the Trinamool Congress (TMC), has shocked the nation and embarrassed the celebration. Mamata Banerjee has dropped the minister from the cupboard, and suspended him from all celebration posts. The legislation should punish all of the responsible on this sordid rip-off.

Nevertheless, such a big hoarding of money is however a tip of the iceberg of the quantity of unaccounted money that pervades the working of our democracy. All political events know this. However the laudable factor in regards to the BJP is that it has zero tolerance for corruption for its political opponents. It’s also a celebration, which by its inherent integrity, ‘morally transforms’ these accused of crimes amongst its personal members, and people who take the ‘smart’ determination of becoming a member of it.

The details bear this out. Since 2014, central investigative companies have reportedly focused 609 political rivals, their relations, and critics of the federal government. Of this, it appears solely 39 are from the BJP, and 570 are towards these against it, a 340 per cent improve towards political opponents when in comparison with the UPA-2 authorities. Clearly then, corruption and wrongdoing are occurring largely within the BJP’s adversaries, and never within the BJP.

Simply earlier than the 2022 Meeting elections, the central companies carried out raids towards aides of Akhilesh Yadav, chief of the Samajwadi Occasion. Within the lead as much as the 2021 West Bengal Meeting elections, 14 leaders, associates and kinfolk of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) had been focused. Within the Tamil Nadu Meeting election in the identical yr, eight members of the DMK had been investigated, together with celebration chief MK Stalin’s son and daughter-in-law, simply 4 days earlier than the polls.

Coincidentally, all these events had been the BJP’s principal political opponents of their respective states.
