It is all well & good arresting all these various officials.

However the real truth of the matter, is that the families of these Corrupt Officials will now be driving in their Sedans,BMW`s & Limousines to the various MLA`s & Police officials , with money-bags , hoping to dilute the case or better still find means to quash it.

Currently any of these corrupt officials, contributing to the BJP Party funds or coffers, will be treated with leniency.

The road to their salvation has begun. Their families are running amok, seeking favours.And money rather than the Law will be the deciding factor.

Forget Parrikars empty promise of Zero Tolerance. It will be "Money Tolerance.
