Advocated rule

July 03 2011

Be it the BJP or the Congress, both parties have several lawyers. While the Congress has Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, Jayanthi Natarajan, Salman Khurshid and so on, the BJP has Arun Jaitely, Ravi Shankar Prasad and Ram Jethmalani. While the BJP has created a storm in the Parliament about the 2G scam, BJP’s Rajya Sabha member and Advani-aide Jethmalani is the lawyer for Kanhimozhi in the 2G scam and is saying in the court that the 2G matter isn’t a scam at all. Jaswant Singh also refuses to call it a scam. Which means lawyers from both parties are being allowed to take a line of thinking on the contrary to the party stance. Mahatma Gandhi had also amply promoted a lawyer Jawahar Lal Nehru but it is worth mentioning that Nehru was a non-practising lawyer. Times have changed and so have politics and its rules. So today parties give full freedom to its lawyer party members to fight a case in the court, and also thumb its nose at the party.
