NDTV reflects public opinion?!!!
are you naive or pretending to be one? I am asking this based on your posts across the threads.
Anyway, ever heard of Barkha Dutt, Vir Sanghvi and Nira Radia? Anybody with an iota of common sense can see past the thin veneer of neutrality and objectiveness of the media in India. Infact, there is a raging perception that media is in cahoots with corrupt politicians. This has directly led to the increase of people depending on internet to get the news and express their opinions. This has given rise to takleef in Govt which wants to control all the forums of public discourse.
From your various posts, I infer that you believe or want others to believe that you believe, "Indian political, Media, Executive and judicial system to be perfect. And the ruling regime to be fairly good." Sadly, your confidence in the Indian political and judicial system, especially the present ruling regime is not shared by most Indians. It is reflected in the public reaction to Anna Hazare.
There are so many blogs that are exposing the media personalities and their shenanigans. The corruption of the Govt is there for all to see. As for judicial system, well, remember KGB. About EC, remember Naveen Chawla. I am not saying that all of them are corrupt. I cant say that because I cant prove it. But it is quite clear that atleast some of them(if not most) are corrupt and dishonest. In this scenario, they cannot be given a clean chit.
Now, I am quite intrigued that you are quite tolerant and lenient of these institutions. Infact, you even spring to their defence. While on the other hand, you are quick to jump the gun on Army and judge them by completely different standards.
Why should an Army chief 'work within the system'? Instead of openly coming out and fighting a legal battle? particularly since the present Govt is corrupt to the core. The Govt has no sympathy from any quarter on any issue.
I am not saying the Army chief is right or wrong. But I find it strange that you suggest he should not have come out in open. Why? By coming out in open, the issue has got publicity. Just because he lost the case does not mean people think he was wrong. Do remember that people may or may not agree with the perception of court.
