Cronyism Ki Jai; Hail the Nexus

The hullaballoo over Vijay Mallya, the billionaire ‘King of Good Times’, resembles the script for a stand-up comedy show on TV. It is like the police allowing a criminal to escape on a motorbike well before starting the drama of chasing him on foot and then indulging in self-praise for their efforts to nab him. After letting Mallya fly out to London with a virtually plane-load of luggage on March 2, the government has now enacted another farce. The ‘diplomatic passport’ of Mallya, a member of the Rajya Sabha, was ‘suspended’ on April 15 for four weeks! The threat that the passport can be revoked later only accentuates the drama.
