When one watches TV and read the papers where it may look obvious that few younger budding- politicians have been directly or indirectly involved in the bond scam or at least being implicated.

Few older politicians may have known about the fact that one of their lead member has had some hand in it .Bond commission may not lead to drastic action as the people involved cannot be charged as per the mandate given to commission. As long the president stays in power AG may get a promotion and the politicians may go scot free in order to help HE to keep the marriage of convenience intact .

It is like that the husband goes on getting involved with a mistress  and or wife will stealthily keeps a boyfriend in the sly .And yet the they will not dissolve the marriage as society will frown upon them.

Why  they did not start investigating previous bond matters  as soon as they came to power? It may be like all other corruption charges where none of them except a Bureaucrat who was remanded to show the people that they want to punish someone. None of the main culprits who gave orders have been punished.

Some of them were remanded and conveniently hospitalised.

All above has become a joke and people start to lose trust

Now I note that some politicians keep talking about purported bond scam taken place from 2004 to 2014

That means the government may be trying desperate to De-Bond themselves by pointing finger and say They did it ,Why cannot we??”

We remember CPC hedging matter purchasing of Greek financial instrument  issue .People knew about them .But to start investigating  after two years looks absurd as the country will laugh at them.

Professionals are all talking about how inefficient the judiciary, AG, Ministers and pointing finger at the two top leaders.

It is high time that one of them strighten his spine and take that stingray tail to punishing the culprits ?

I am sure he will not need JO   ( Jolly Old ) fellows to win upcoming election
