Letter to BS: Let SC's verdict be duly respected by all concerned

While the government ought to come clean in this regard, such a sensitive matter should not have been made a prestige issue either by the ruling party or the main Opposition party

This is with reference to Archis Mohan’s “calls SC verdict on a victory of truth, asks Rahul to apologise” (December 15). It goes without saying that the Supreme Court order must have come as a music to the ears of the top leadership of the Narendra and the (BJP). What else explains the immediate attack it launched on President for indulging in “falsehoods” on the issue?

Meanwhile, Rahul has pointed out some “inconsistencies” in the judgment by claiming that there was no Comptroller and Auditor General or Public Accounts Committee as stated in the SC judgment. While the government ought to come clean in this regard, such a sensitive matter should not have been made a prestige issue either by the ruling party or the main Opposition party.

Let the SC's verdict be duly respected by all concerned in the larger national interest, more so, when the constitution of the much sought after Joint Parliamentary Committee itself may not truly serve the real purpose.
