Of that Twelfth June

Shruti has great piece in the today's Livemint newspaper on Indira Gandhi and her polity of drama in Indian democracy. Shruti concludes with the following para:

  • "Remembering this verdict, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley should pause to reconsider their role as the incumbent leaders of opposition in Parliament. In the spate of corruption scandals that have been exposed in the last three years, they have not been successful in making the Prime Minister testify before a joint parliamentary committee, let alone in a court of law. It is particularly disappointing as both started their political careers opposing the emergency with Jayaprakash Narayan as their inspiration."
