The case has certain big questions on political governance, political propriety, political accountability, political morality etc. The case exposes the double standard of politicians when they are the ruling party and opposition.
The present CM who was in opposition a few years back used the 'Sarita case" against the then Chief Minister and the opposition parties shook the whole state with continuous agitations. The allegations against the then CM was based on morality as some junior official has some connection with the accused Sarita who cheated a few people in the name of Solar energy facilities. There was no loss of eve a single rupee to the government. The accused was not a government employee and the case was a private one of cheating. However the opposition then very shrewdly use it as a weapon against the then CM ad ruling party.
However now the case involves loos to the exchequers as it is smuggling, it involves relationship with another country, it may have anti-national connections, one of main he suspects is employed in a job connected to IT department of the government, getting payment sourced from government, and the person who is Principal secretary to the present CM and also the IT department secretary is alleged to have extra-official relationship with alleged a\ suspect woman, the woman is absconding etc. The same IAS official in the CM's office (IT secretary) was also in the middle of controversy in two or three major matters of using extra-official powers and these were agitating in political circles o last few months. The Chief Minister had strongly defended him in all those times.
So there is a very strong doubt and suspicion in the minds of people about the functioning of the present government, especially the Chief Minister and his office. It is quite clear to the people that the CM is eating his own words and version which he used against the previous CM. Now he justifies himself with the same arguments the previous CM defended himself. The case is stronger and more pointing to CM's office now.
However it is doubtful whether the present opposition can encash this 'golden' opportunity. There is another practical difficulty for them to organise large rallies and protest programmes in the situation of Covid. The government also use very shrewdly the Covid situation to block any opposition programmes.
There can be multi dimensions to this case. We cannot be sure whether there will be a faultless ending and conclusion knowing and disclosing all details and dimensions. We may hope that the agencies entrusted with investigation may unearth all details behind the case and bring to book the brains behind the operations along with the ground level operators.
