It speaks volumes about the economic illiteracy of educated Indians that they believe that a bunch of hard Leftists will reduce corruption. Corruption is the first and inescapable consequence of Socialism. And they have been so blinded by their own faith that they are not able to notice that their saviour is promising freebies left and right, like a worst kind of power hungry politician from hinterland. And now we also know why messiahs and godmen succeed so fabulously. Once men come to invest faith in a man, every evidence of his wrongdoing is actually taken by them as a proof of his righteousness: “He is right. That is why he is being attacked.”
And folks here used to wonder why Asaram’s followers are not deserting him.
