You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
– Abraham Lincoln
Congress’s stance that the National Herald Case is one of political vendetta by the BJP does not hold water for the following reasons:
This was a private criminal case filed by Dr Swamy in 2012 in Delhi Court during the UPA regime. At that time, Dr. Swamy was not in the BJP but he was the President of Janata Party.
The case took its own time and on June 26, 2014 the Judge Ms. Gomati Manocha, the Metropolitan Magistrate-02, Patiala House Courts, New Delhi summoned the office bearers of Young Indian to the court.
It took several months before every officer of the company could be served the summons. One such individual, Satyen (Sam) Pitroda had to be located in the USA before being served!
Congress then moved the Delhi High Court to quash the summons issued. They used every trick in the book to delay the case in the High Court.
All the work in this case was done by Dr. Swamy’s team. As far as we know, there was no involvement of any significant BJP leader in this effort.
BJP in fact, let the law of the land dictate the course of events. How is that Political vendetta?
News has just emerged that the Metropolitan Judge for this case has been changed from Ms. Gomati Manocha to Sh. Lovleen. Is Congress going to say that they had nothing to do with this change? It has been done before, in the Delhi High Court!
Abraham Lincoln once said that “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” It is time the Congress Party faces up to the realities of their actions. Surely if there was no impropriety, they could have said that at the trial! Why delay it?
