Why is BJP silent on Arnab Goswami?
Many years ago a prominent BJP person told me – if you stand up for the Gandhi family, one thing you can be assured is that they will safeguard and protect you, even if you are looting the nation; however, that cannot be said for BJP, because you will end up having to fend for yourselves if you are in trouble. One should not paint a broad brush as can be seen just recently how protection was provided to Kangana Ranaut. But what is inexplicable is why BJP is silent on the “potential-daylight-murder” of Arnab Goswami? How can a country explain a revengeful State Government, one that simply yanks away on dubious charges on the most popular anchor in the country followed by millions of people not just from India but across from the world and then torture him? Can any journalists take on any political corruption in the future? Then what is the fate of a common man? Is this new India where investors can invest with a transparent rule of law?
Arnab is a national icon; a true nationalist and he has taken on issues that no journalist in India dares to but when he was subjected to this there does not seem to be any remedy in sight. Even if the thuggish State Government does not physically kill him, they can tremendously intimidate him so that he will never be able to function as he did before, or they could hurt his health to such an extent that he will never be able to work.

If this happens to a leftist media house like NDTV, the news media across the world would be screaming and the Indian Government at all levels would step in to address it. Many of them such as Pranoy Roy, Rajdeep Sardesai, Shekhar Gupta, Barkha Dutt, have vilified, lied and character assassinated Narendra Modi for decades but they are today minting money and will come with double the force the minute Modi and BJP government falters. But Arnab who stood for the nation and BJP today – stands vitiated and has to scream for help.
Do logical or peaceful methods work with thugs?
Any delay in action could result in most grievous damage. Dr. Subramanian Swamy has been offering his suggestions on how the Centre can handle this by using Article 256, 257, and if that doesn’t work use Article 356.
Tweet of Dr. Subramanian Swamy:
Goswami has BJP Union Ministers raising their voices for him. What extra value will be there if I raise my voice now? If BJP govt wants it can send under Article 256 and 257 a direction to Maharashtra Govt.. If they don’t listen then use 356 as per Constitution

I am also mentioning below the hundreds of crores of assets of Uddhav Thackeray and his family posted on social media. How did they make all this money? What are Shiv Sena’s connections to the underworld? How many billions have Sharad Pawar and family looted and perhaps involved in many criminal activities? Sonia Gandhi’s (Antonia Maino) family is out on bail for years now and we even can’t begin to list their family crimes. P Chidambaram is roaming around freely after the national plunder he facilitated for the Gandhi family and for his own family while hundreds of millions of kids today cannot get a full meal each day. Is the Centre so helpless that it cannot stop this murder and book them?
I hope the Centre takes an action before it’s too late, it is probably late. We cannot create an Atma Nirbhar Bharat and hold our head high if we are silent in the face of this daylight murder. If we do not act swiftly against these sickening thugs that are still in the political elite of India, the consequences will be hazardous for all.
List of many crores of the Thackeray family? Where did they get all that money?
