Corrupt Congress in AP

The Chindu expresses no moral outrage but calls it a credibility issue. The offender is Congress and hence the tacit support by N.Ram

The Hindu : Opinion / Editorials : Growing credibility gap

Land scams seem to be the order of the day in Andhra Pradesh. No sooner did YSR assume office than the endowment land scandal surfaced, followed by another around the Outer Ring Road project. Now the opposition parties are charging that one of the Chief Minister's advisers and a few Congress functionaries close to him have profiteered by grabbing land from hapless farmers in the proximity of Hyderabad. With Ramoji Rao's Eenadu, India's third largest-read daily newspaper, aggressively investigating and exposing the scandals and the government's misdeeds, the State government showed its intolerant face — attacking the media baron's financial base in an unprecedented way but failing conspicuously to bring him to heel. The YSR government faces a crisis of legitimacy.
