Save our souls first...

'Save our souls when the odds are against us' is the religion strictly followed by the political society. Any recommendation or report putting a big question mark on credentials of one political group, particularly the one which rules, is shown the door that opens to a stinking dumping ground.

The report on 2G by Public Accounts Committee has been dumped citing it as being partisan. The ruling United Progressive Alliance has left no stone unturned to doubt the intentions influenced during preparing the report.

After Murli Manohar Joshi circulated the report, the Congress defending team has taken its position. The report might have been given the same fate if the BJP was in power. It's crystal clear as to why UPA would think twice to put the report to force. PM Manmohan Singh and former FM P Chidambaram have been criticised in the report.

If the stakes are high and those who face charges boast huge political stature, hardly anything goes against them. Here too the precedents speak out. Till the time the PAC report on 2G gets its share of treatment, fingers need to be kept crossed. The UPA presently indulging in 'save our souls' tactic.
