BJP's Yashwant Sinha Speaks
BJP's Yashwant Sinha alleged a “big scam” and said Chidambaram's son picked up a 5% stake in Maxis, ahead of the takeover by Indian telecom firm Aircel.
BJP is gunning for Chidambaram as it is a right of opposition to put govt at back foot and we can only say that people who are holding such high positions including their family members should not get into anything which can cause damage to their reputation as they live in glass houses with a number of watch dogs watching them with preying eyes to nail them. Just remember that smoke occurs when some where fire has erupted and with this as a note we only ask officials not to misuse their position for their personal interests as interests of the nations comes first and always time and lets make India a force to reckon with and our generations will be proud of our work.
