My last post was an interview with an Elected Representative of the people of India, where the REP dismissed all allegations and charges against him as baseless and politically motivated – “by my enemies”. Strangely enough, I read this morning that one of these politicians (our guiding lights!) actually made a statement like that to the press. Read on.

I am sure a lot of us are happy to hear that the Yadav brothers have been convicted in the Nitish Katara murder case. But Daddy Dearest, also known as DP Yadav, a powerful UP politician, called a press conference, alleging that this verdict was a conspiracy to politically destroy him. Read that hilarious statement here.

Really now, Daddy? And I suppose the fact that your son is already serving a sentence for tampering with evidence in the Jessica Lal case was another conspiracy to destroy you politically. It seems to me that it is your son who is your political enemy. Isn’t it amazing, the lengths he goes to just to screw you over? What did you do to make him so angry?

Well, sad as it may be, your son and nephew have been convicted. You have other options open to you now to set aside this judgement – you can appeal, you can bribe your way through the system, you can intimidate the deceased’s family to withdraw the charges, you can tamper with evidence, you can browbeat the system. We’ll see how that goes. It’s not going to be easy for Neelam Katara – you’ll ensure that. But hopefully, this time, one of the little people you lot have been so used to squishing underfoot will win. And to hell with the fact that it’s afternoon – I’ll drink to that!
