One who fought her panchayat election on the platform for anti-corruption is now fighting for a corrupt. There is a reason why people vote for someone to lead the town, but, once they come to power, all they worry about retaining their powerful presence. Thank you Mrs Abida for teaching us a lesson. Thanks for proving us being idiots for supporting you.
None has moral rights to speak about corruption if they support a corrupt. Jayalaitha is proven beyond any doubt that she amassed wealth beyond her income. She may be fool that she couldn't out-beat Karunanithi in corruption, but a corrupt is a corrupt is a corrupt.
What are we asked to compromise? Should we let small corrupts to go? Should we encourage those who take 5 rupees, 1000 rupees grease money? Irony - on one side we talk about corruption and here we support a corrupt who is proven beyond all doubts and with evidences. Would it be ok to allow in future the corrupts to come into power as long as they give freebies??
Where do you think the money for governments to give freebies? It comes directly out of your pockets in the form of tax and inflation!!! Jeyalalitha or Karunanithi give nothing out of their personal wealth!!!
