PNB Fraud: Blame Game hangs on

18, Feb 2018 By shakeel ahmad

The PNB fraud is hitting at the nervousness of both the political parties viz., the BJP and the Congress Party. One blames another and another blames the preceding. Is not this a dull clutter they have slipped into? They pose imitating Oliver Hardy’s constant refrain to Stan Laurel. But the illusion has lost now as the reality is out. The blame game has been continuing for the past several days while the scam master Neerav or Nirav ____ enjoys the lavish life in supposed to be American posh hotel, as the news goes.

Wacky as what we learnt so deceptive in the Gujarati businessman. His name in the Hindi language means silence and stillness yet, he has brought all the hue and cry in the country’s political circle. His fraudulent ways are being discussed with much queerness.

Neither the BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain was accepting the CBI’s reports nor was the Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi prepared to speak on the resignation of ex-MD, Allahabad Bank, Dinesh Dubey. The Central Bureau of Investigation in its FIR says that a majority of Letters of Understanding in the huge scam were either issued or renewed in the Punjab National Bank in 2017-18.

The BJP says it is busy in cleaning the muck widely spread out by the UPA government while the Congress considers Chowkidaar turning Wafadaar or Bhagidaar in ways of Lalit Modi, Vijay Mallya and Neerva Modi. Press conferences by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi or Finance Minister Arun Jaitley are yet to come.

But the key persons have not shown promptness in holding the press-meet on this ticklish issue, asserted the critics adding that the properties seized so far do not match with the enormous money cheated fraudulently. Rahul Gandhi says Narendra Modi gives to 1.5 hours on Parikchha Pe Charcha but has no time to talk about the scam.
