BJP Leaders arrested for Corruption enjoys royal facilities in prison

Former Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa, a 68-year-old Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader , arrested Saturday in corruption cases, Wednesday began his first day in an airconditioned 24X15 feet cell of the central prison here. The cell has an attached bathroom as Yeddyurappa enjoys 'Y' category security. The case against Yeddyurappa, filed by advocates, Sirajin Bhasha and N.K. Balaraj, is that he, his two sons - BJP Lok Sabha member B.Y. Raghavendra and B.Y. Vijayendra, son-in-law R. Sohan Kumar, - conspired to denotify government land in return for monetary gains. Former state Muzrai (endowments) minister S.N. Krishnaiah Shetty, BJP legislator Hemachanda Sagar and several others are also accused in the cases. This story is published today in Times of India. Unfortunate facts in this story is that Leaders enjoy royalty wherever they are, but a common person has no such immunity at all. It is nothing but the mockery of the fundamental rights of equality in laws.
