Is Congress VP Rahul Gandhi on a wild goose chase?

        The main reason for  his criticism is that he was not the first person to make this kind of allegation. The charge of corruption was first made by an advocate-activist Prashant Bhushan a few months ago. It was followed up by a chief minster who is known more for all the wrong reasons.
         The issue was also  raised in the apex court, the  Supreme Court. The Court described the charge as ” non-authentic” and fictitious” and refused to entertain it not once but twice. Still,  it was not given a nice burial. The likes of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal,  who is already facing a defamation case filed by union finance minister Arun Jaitley, made the same accusation again and again.
         It is in this light that a TV anchor asked:  should any serious charge like this without concrete evidence levelled against a man who holds the highest political office of the land ? ” It is falling politically very low”, some other commented.
         The problem, perhaps ,is that there is no public outcry against this kind of  wild allegation and the courts take a very long time to wind up the defamation cases. It’s time we gave another thought to this kind of low-level political utterances against any public figure without proper evidence.
