Withdraw security to corrupt politicos: RSS

via TOI published on January 6, 2007

NEW DELHI: In the midst of much pro-Saddam sentiment, the RSS has struck out at “corrupt Indian politicians” describing them as “desi Saddam Husseins” and demanded that they be made accountable for the nation’s woes now and not after 27 years, the way the Iraqi dictator was.

The Sangh is particularly irked that at time when incidents like the Noida killings are taking place and citizens are threatened and exposed, politicians get heavy security cover at public expense. An editorial in the weekly Panchjanya said the Nithari episode had exposed the police-politician nexus and hence all the security provided to politicians should be withdrawn. Let the political parties spend on private security arrangements or deposit the money spent on security in the government account, it suggested.

Security personnel, it said, were paid with public money and should first be responsible for protecting citizens, who faced the brunt of any “jihad assault or criminal attack”. But ironically, after every such incident, it was the politicians who got enhanced security cover and not the citizen, who was the victim.

The editorial said jihadis had killed more than 60,000 people and Naxals too had killed tens of thousands. Yet, there was no security policy for the common citizen. The corrupt politician, it said, “who would not be noticed even by a crow, demands and gets a huge security cover and drives the busy city roads with sirens and gun-toting black cats.”

The Sangh weekly said people when they saw such politicians, hated them and soon a day would come when none of the security arrangements would be able to help them. These “desi Saddams” will have to face the day of reckoning soon, it added.
