Cash for bail exposes weakness of desire
Is there a price tag for every thing in our country...can anyone be bought... where are are we heading too...has democracy helped us... common man is pondering over many more questions which on itself, questions the mode of the society. On one side we have the pathetic plight of the ever struggling farmers, artisans, labour and ofcourse not the least are the middle class burdens that even make them default the EMI payments. All this on one side and on another side we have the rich elite who have misused their power for personal gains. And even go the extent of bribing Rs 100 Cr for getting out unscathed.
OMG! The disparity seems like a mighty ocean that can never be scaled up, till the corrupt exist. And the recent cash for bail has exposed the weakness of desire, involving educated men in power. The miserable situation only depicts that anybody is buy-able in this democratic country. The bail for sale saga of mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy has all ingredients of a masala movie, with betrayals, bluff and twists. Three judges in Andhra Pradesh have been arrested for allegedly offering or accepting bribes in exchange for bail for Gali.
The desperacy of Gali to breathe-in free air has led to the escalation in the bid says sources, As per the version given by recently arrested, Dasarath Rami Reddy, a relative of the incarcerated Karnataka Minister in the illegal mining case, Gali was desperate. To the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), Dasarath Rami Reddy named that the former judge Lakshmi Narasimha Rao had traded the bail for Rs 100 Cr. But as per the earlier statement the former judge stated that he had been offered Rs 100 Cr. Well the difference is the ask and the offer, but the figure seems to be correct.
As per the ACB authorities, Dasarath and Janardhan Reddy's brother Gali Somasekhar Reddy, an MLA from Bellary (urban) constituency, had approached Lakshminarasimha on April 13 through a realtor P Krishna Prasad to secure bail for the mining baron. They told the judge that they were ready to spend even up to Rs.100 Cr for the bail and even promised him to arrange the cash immediately. Lured by the amount Lakshminarasimha invited Justice B Naga Maruthi Sharma, who was earlier the first CBI special court judge probing the sensational case of alleged illegal mining case of Gali. The discussion between the two judges was on April 18, when Justice Sharma firmly rejected the offer of Rs 40 Cr offered for Gali's bail. Any one else in his shoes would not have dared such a refusal. But righteousness always wins.
Subsequent to his refusal the proposal shifted to the Special CBI Judge T Pattabhiramaa Rao. This time also it was a vain bid by Lakshminarasimha. But surprisingly Gali was granted bail on May 11 in the OMC illegal mining case, when Justice Sharma was on leave then. On inquiry it was found out that Gali's kin approached rowdy-sheeter-turned-realtor P Yadagiri Rao and through retired judge T V Chalapathi Rao, struck the deal for a lesser amount of Rs.5 Cr. CBI authorities exposed the scam and handed over the case to the ACB. Now, all those involved in the scam, Pattabhi, his son Ravichandra, Chalapathi Rao, Yadagiri, Lakshminarasimha Rao, Prabhakar Rao, Dasarath Ram Reddy and junior advocate Aditya who has been arguing the illegal mining case, are now in the jail on judicial remand.
Eventually the bail to the incarcerated former Karnataka Minister was scrapped by the AP High Court. But Gali is right now on trail in another mining scam in Bengaluru. He is lodged in the Bengaluru prison. The story only exposes the weakness of desire. It also proves that some succomb under dire crisis while others remain as at tall as the great wall of China. Long live such stalwarts who are worth remembering, as they have become a rare tribe... (With inputs from internet-AW AarKay)
