Re: Kargil, Bofors and BJP
- It is no secret that there was a secret deal as commission paid to the tune of 64 corores (650 corores in today's valuation). Ex director CBI, Mr Joginder says that there were ample evidences against OQ-the Italian friend of Italian lady Mrs Sonia.
My learned friend has, conveniently, mixed the issue with the quality of the BOFORS and the folly of BJP, forgetting the role played by Mr Solanki and the relief given to OQ from time to time by allowing him to escape from India, defreezing his A/c and now removing his name from the list of wanted fugitives.
It is true that public memory is short but not so short as the learned friend appears to think. The stinking character of those who allowed OQ to go scot free shall be forgotten by the nation, as it has of those who brought the misery by succumbing to the communal demand of Pakistan and later created Kashmir embraglio or brought shameful debacle in 62.
I am thankful to God that the learned analyst did not attribute the invasions during meadiveal times, partition of India, invasion on Kashmir and the wars of 65, 71 to the atomic explosions of 1998.

In an attempt to defuse the situation, both countries signed the Lahore Declaration in February 1999, promising to provide a peaceful and bilateral solution to the Kashmir conflict.
> During the winter of 1998 -1999, some elements of the Military of Pakistan were covertly training and sending Pakistani troops and paramilitary forces, some allegedly in the guise of mujahideen, into territory on the Indian side of the LOC. The infiltration was code named "Operation Badr"; its aim was to sever the link between Kashmir and Ladakh, and cause Indian forces to withdraw from the Siachen Glacier, thus forcing India to negotiate a settlement of the broader Kashmir dispute.
