In recent weeks, the BJP had started acquiring the reputation of being a 'compliant' (even compromised) opposition party. Instead of demanding an investigation into the dubious dealings of Vadra, the party was busy trying to convince the Congress that it had nothing to do with the entire episode.
While the Congress expects that its princelings will not be touched, fingering princelings from other parties is perfectly legitimate and acceptable. Come to think of it, the Congress was quite blase about targeting Sukhbir Badal, the Chautalas and other such princelings, but suffers paroxysm of rage when it comes to its own princelings.
While Jaganmohan Reddy was a Congress princeling, he was given a free hand to become a billionaire. Not a single eyebrow was raised over the method and manner in which he made his pile. But no sooner than he started challenging the party high command, his corruption suddenly became visible.
