Rahul Gandhi Says PM Narendra Modi Is Corrupt. So What?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not the only politician in Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who is facing corruption charges.

Today, top Congress leader Rahul Gandhi leveled corruption charges on India’s Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi. Should you be surprised? No, because you should be surprised if a politician is honest.

There is hardly any surprise element in the news that a politician is corrupt. In fact, you are not eligible to be a politician in India if you are not corrupt.

Rahul Gandhi alleged that when Modi was chief minister of Gujarat in 2013-14 just before he became the PM, he recieved Rs. 40 crore as corruption money from a company. He also said that it was revealed by the documents of Income Tax department when it raided the company during that period.

Rahul Gandhi further said that the Tax department had asked to hold an inquiry on the payment to Modi, but the inquiry was not carried out because immediately after that Modi had become the PM.

Last week, Rahul Gandhi had said that Modi claims he is against corruption, but he has information on personal corruption of Modi. He also said that he is not being allowed to reveal the information in Parliament.

But Modi is not the only politician in Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who is facing corruption charges. Among the BJP leaders and Modi’s friends who are facing serious corruption charges include:

But the Modi government did not hold any proper inquiry in all these cases and these politicians are having a ball with public money.

In the present case also, opposition parties like Congress will keep shouting, but there will be no effect on Modi. Worse, as it has happened in other cases of political corruption, people of India will never know the truth.
