Congress leader Kapil Sibal lent further weight to the open and shut case of a cock-and-bull story about the rigging of the Electronic Voting Machines ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha poll. The most idiotic and laughable charge by one Syed Shuja, a so-called US-based cyber expert, was made worse by the presence of the Zero-Loss-In-The-2G-Scam Sibal at a press conference in London on Monday.
The paymaster and the piper together at the same place showed even a lack of pretence that it was a desperate conspiracy in this election season. It did not occur to the Supreme Court lawyer that by questioning Modi’s spectacular win in 2014, he was publicly undermining peoples’ faith in the democratic system. To suggest that Gopinath Munde, the late BJP leader, was party to the large-scale hacking operation too was a reflection of sheer dumbness.
It is doubtful if aside from Sibal there is anyone else who remotely trusts the harebrained story. And they did not find anyone else other than Syed Shuja to mouth these lies? Why not get Shyam-turned- Sam Pitroda to frontally abuse the Election Commission of India, why leave it to his underlings who reflect their ingrained hatred of the saffron parivaar in general and Modi in particular.
Grow up, Sibal and Shuja! We know you believe Rahul Gandhi will be pleased with your huge contribution to the party by this open affront to ordinary Indians’ intelligence, but, in the process, you have pulled down our democratic system in the eyes of the global community. Your flimsy and false case, Sibal and Shuja, is dismissed with contempt in the court of the people of India.
