The Susashan Babu Nitish Kumar’s image has taken a hit, after the MLC Manorama Devi’s son allegedly shot and killed a 19 year old Aditya, for speeding past his Range Rover in Gaya town. Rocky, was arrested after 48 hours of the shocking incident!
These are crimes of ego, wherein a politician’s son or daughter, demand to be treated with more respect than mere mortals command, for they are the true heirs of satta (power).
The attitude of killing with impunity is not new to the sons of the high and mighty political class of the country. The very public murder of Jessica Lal by Manu Sharma, the son of a Haryana MP, was shocking by virtue of the fact that Jessica, who was the bar tender, was shot for refusing to serve a drink!
So, the logic is, if you should get a challan for over speeding, you should get shot at, for overtaking a politician’s car! To top it all, in a display of insensitivity and irresponsibility, the deputy CM of Bihar, Tejaswi Yadav has made the following remark, “I would like to ask the PM: if terrorists attack the most secure air base in India, is that not jungle raj”.
Well, the two events, as horrific as they both are independently, are incomparable. So stop your display of ego, which Rocky Yadav’s shooting act is all about, in the first place. If the JD(U) has to preserve its image of susashan, it must reprimand this politicians-son- defends-politician’s- son effort of Tejaswi Yadav! As of now, the road ahead, looks rocky indeed!
