Panelists observe that the noose must tighten against errant politicians

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav batted in support of party colleague Azam Khan who is facing several cases and termed the allegations against the Rampur lawmaker as “political”. APN’s popular debate Mudda discussed the issue. Anchorperson Akshay Dubey posed the questions to panelists including the BJP’s Shivam Tyagi, political expert Fazil Ahmed, noted scribe Piyush Pant and APN consultant Govind Pant Raju.

Tyagi said: “There are many cases against him Azam Khan. The government is doing its work. The administration and investigative process is working to weed out corruption.”

Pant said: “Those in power lose all sense. Azam Khan has been an influential politician. At one time, the entire government machinery went looking for his buffalo that had gone missing. Government is being over-cautious and over-sensitive on this matter.”

Ahmed said: “This is gang politics. Every party is doing that. Azam Khan must never have expected to see such a day. This is like a cat and dog game. This is only show baazi.”

Raju said: “Akhilesh has to stand by Azam Khan, there is no choice for him. Azam has been highly influential. It is Akhilesh’s compulsion.”

Tyagi: “This is the last attempt by the Samajwadi Party to save face. The party is already decimated. Now, this nation wants development.”

Pant said: “There is no hurry, the government is doing its work. But I won’t deny that there might be a political angle to it. Before the general elections, the government had raised so many cases against the Samajwadi Party, but all these fell silent after the polls. Political vendetta is part of politics.”

Ahmed said: “If the intentions of the government were always clear, the problem would have been nipped in the bud. How can someone be both the accused and the judge? However, fast track courts are a good step for people to regain confidence in the official machinery.”

Tyagi said: “The BJP has zero tolerance policy against corruption.”

Raju said: “It is not that cases are not going on against the BJP leaders. In Azam Khan case, it is not that there has been victimisation or political vendetta. The Uttar Pradesh Police has registered an FIR against Azam Khan’s wife, Tajeen Fatima, accusing her of electricity theft at her Rampur resort.”
Ahmed said: “Azam Khan’s sister is also in jail. When officials go to jail, it sounds out a clear signal that the government is doing its job, even if it is due to political animosity. Azam Khan been hugely boastful, power has gone to his head.”

Tyagi said: “Some pEople have been thinking of politics as a private limited company, like Gandhi limited company, Mulayam limited company. People have given a clear mandate to the BJP because of all this.”

Raju said: “Politicians have a way of ignoring small transgressions. However, this might come to an end. Corruption is nothing but corruption, and such cases must be taken to the logical end.”
