The Debate on Lalith Modi in the Parliament


The monsoon session of the Indian Parliament for the year 2015 was more or less a washout.   The opposition is up in arms and has been demanding the resignation of  Smt. Sushma Swaraj ji  and Smt. Vasundhara Raje Scindia ji.   Since the Smt. Vasundhara Raje Scindia is the chief minister of a state the focus was on Sushma ji alone.  For all these days, the government was willing to have a debate, the opposition was demanding a resignation.  Finally, when the debate did happen today, the argument from the government side was direct blow on the face to the opposition.

Here is what Sushmaji said about the allegations against her.  She refuted the allegations on her family.  She then went on to say as to how there was no Quid-pro-quo in this matter.   The most interesting part of her reply was when she pointed out the hollowness of the letters written by the previous government to the British government.  The British were saying that they cannot deport the person as their law does not let them do so.   They were asking for a formal request for extradition of Lalith Modi and the previous government was not requesting the extradition.

In reply to the political attack on her and the party, Sushmaji came up with the anecdotes from Shri Arjun Singh’s autobiography where he recounted the escape of Anderson from India.  Sushmaji makes serious allegation on Rajiv Gandhi when she quotes this . Watch the video for further understanding in this regard.

Politics apart, what is the real case on Lalith Modi ? What is the crime that he committed ? What was the investigation that happened ? What did the previous government do ? What is the present government doing ? The finance minister Shri Arun Jaitley sums this up in an awesome way in his 28 minute speech. Do watch the speech, he switched between Hindi and English and drove home the point wonderfully.  Please do listen to the speech .

Members from the Congress party were disrupting both of them when they were making their speeches.  This is not correct.   They should have the decency and patience to listen as to what the other party says.
