The cat is finally out of the bag and Sasikala has been rightly convicted in the DA case (Disproportionate Asset case) by the Supreme Court going by the huge wealth she has amassed over the years by corrupt means. However, corruption rules roost in our country and most politicians would be guilty on this count be it from the ruling party or the opposition. Four years jail sentence to Sasikala was appropriate but the courts should make all out efforts to recover the loot she and her close associates have plundered to give meaning to the sentence.
Other politicians such Lalu Yadav, Mayawati and Bhujhbals to every Tom, Dick and Harry who have looted the nation should be tried and convicted by the courts for similar offence. Politics has become a business of loot and corruption and it is time to cleanse the system in totality which would then encourage the educated and the honest to join electoral politics!
