Economist Carried an article immediately of the July 2008 vote of confidence in the Loksaha by Manmohan Singh has a tarnished victory http://econ.st/ecEjiz . when the BJP displayed the money in the loksabha for the alleged pay off for the votes , the media called it Murder of Democracry by BJP and was liberally used in its evening Prime time disussions..
Murder of Democracy ? by whom? To begin with ever since the UPA govt came to power it has blatantly used every institution at its disposal for its survival, after Wikileaks, I have no hesitation in saying that the 2009 vote for UPA II and congress was beause of the favors showered on it by the election comission, by the CJI, and of course the media. We the People were conveniently made Fools and made us believe that UPA II won because of Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh because of Honesty and his impeccable integrity.

When Vajpayee lost his vote of confidence by one vote.. he ensured that the Democracy and the Post of the PM as an institution is upheld. but actively indulging in bribery and ensuring victory neither is Chanakya Politics and is not the Victory of the PM. It is the Murder of the Democracy on the Floor of the Loksabha aided by the Media and Rajdeep Sardesai in Particular.
Satish Sharma claims to have paid upwards of 10 Crores for every MP bought and had over 60 crores in Chests. Where did this money come from? It was sure black money, who funded the operation Buy out of MP’s. Is this money accounted for by the congress party. Will there be an independent inquiry and will the PM pass of the blame claiming not to be aware. or by merely issuing an apology. Where does the buck stop…
