Silent Ram Jethmalani

video poses problems

ramjeth-malaniONCE upon a time, Rajni Patel, President Bombay Pradesh Congress Committee, Justice YV Chandrachud and Ram Jethmalani were considered the Trimurti in Mumbai. Those in the know recall the trio’s influence and how they virtually ruled Bombay. The 93-year-old eminent lawyer Jethmalani has travelled a long way since. He is a fiery speaker within and outside the courts. People are scared for his frank opinions. Jethmalani speaks his mind without worrying about the consequences. As a result, he has been in trouble many times. Recently, there was a video in circulation on social media, in which he explains the fight against the black money. He alleged that friendly countries are eager to disclose the names of those Indians who have stacked black money abroad, but nobody in the government is ready to ask for the list. During a conversation with journalists, he condemned the action of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in such a language, which is not printable. The video went viral. Sources disclosed, the video was seen by the Prime Minister’s Office and the PMO got into action as the Jethmalani’s language was not tolerable. The job was assigned to one of the senior most functionaries of the BJP. The top leader met Ram Jethmalani at his residence and conveyed to him the seriousness of the matter. The grapevine is that a meeting was arranged between the PM and Jethmalani. It is reported that Jethmalani is in silent mode since he has met the Prime Minister. Someone aptly said, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones at others.
