BJP and the Bofors scandal

Have you ever thought why the then NDA government did not pursue the Bofors pay offs and let the Italian friend of the Family live in peace? Read Vinod Mehta’s well written memoirs [Lucnow Boy]. The proximity of Hinduja brothers to Atal Behari Vajpayee is highlighted in this book.Vinod Mehta was privy to many of the murky episodes that took place and still taking place in India’s corridors of power. He has spared none and though the BJP [Bharatiya Janata Party] comes second worst compared to the congress, the clean image it tries to present to the people of the country is exposed very well as false by Mr. Mehta with facts and figures in this book. The horrifying wheeling dealing that went on behind the scenes in the G2 scandal spearheaded by Niira Radia is also there in the book. Our TV queen Bharkha Dutt too has been brought down from her high pedestal.

A must read book for all of us Indians
