Corruption and nepotism: DMK style

In the wake of the 2G licensing controversy, involving some thousands of crores, newspapers are reporting the back and forth between Karunanidhi, who refuses to accept blame for DMK’s A.Raja, who was the telecom minister at the time, and Jayalalitha and others including the Auditor-General who are urging the Central government to take action against Raja.

It seems to have been conveniently forgotten by the press that Raja is Karunanidhi’s nephew. Even a front page report today, with the news that Raja has finally resigned, does not mention the family connection anywhere. Have we become so blase’ about family connections in corruption?
