What Bofors? Don’t they have anything else to talk about? asks Sonia

via HK Correspondent published on January 20, 2006

NEW DELHI: “These people don’t have anything else to do other than reciting Bofors.. Bofors..Quattrocchhi? Well, enough is enough. This case has to come to a conclusion,” said Sonia Gandhi, the Italian born Congress President. No, she was not addressing a party meet or the ever obliging media. Sonia was having a one-to-one meet with the CPM glamour boy Sitaram Yechuri, who is acting the role of the swan in the Congress-CPM relations. Yechuri met Sonia to convey the views of the CPM in the Quattrocchi bank account defreezing issue. He came back convinced that the Signora is very much right in ordering Bharadwaj and other lesser mortals to pay obeisance to her friend and philosopher Ottavio Quattrocchhi whom the lesser mortals describe as a wheeler dealer of the Nehru-Gandhi clan.


The other day the Chief Vigilance Commissioner P Shankar expressed surprise over the action of the CBI and the union government to ask the London court to defreeze the Quattrocchhi account which was frozen as per the directive of the then NDA government under AB Vajpayee. Now that the CPM has extended silent support to Sonia Gandhi on whatever she plans to do in the Bofors case, the billion dollar kickback case is all set to be consigned to the dustbins of history.
