5 Love Tales of Politicos That Made Headlines
With a questionable performance in Delhi, AAP certainly was flummoxed to see their RockStar making up for it in recently released Sex CD. Here is an account of few other Asarams of recent past who did the rex and got busted.
Digvijaya Singh – Amrita Rai: Cupid struck apparently much before the embarrassing revelation over popular media. Having little grace to salvage with their candid moments all over internet overnight, Digvijay’s owning up dignified the relationship with the little consolation of a legitimate affiliation.
Chander Mohan – Fiza Mohammad: This was a short-lived tale packed with sleaze, slitz, polygamy, drama and slander. Former Deputy CM Chander Mohan became Chand Mohammad in pursuit of his paramour Fiza Mohammad, deserted his political career, wife and kinfolk. With ample PDA dished out to news channels that resembled some B-Grade cinema, this soon boomeranged into a tale of deceit, suicide attempts, mud-slinging and legal summons. This one inched rather quickly towards the deadly end it eventually had to have, with Chander Mohan returning to his estranged wife and Fiza left only to die under mysterious conditions. Some real hard-pounding action there, we believe!!
Gopal Kanda – Geetika Sharma: A rather heartrending tale, it rocked the nation and left us all in anguish and pain. Not one to go down as a mere whispering campaign, this shameful act of the rich and powerful was meted with lawful justice. Reducing the antics of a political heavyweight to pittance of a cat-and-mouse chase, Indian law keeping forces instilled in a long long time the much required trust in hearts of people. The suicide of Geetika Sharma having undergone years of harassment and trauma, was swiftly pursued all guns blazing and with nothing to spare in cornering Gopal Kanda, who was eventually doled out a befittingly reprimanded end. Where accusation of the influential is rare and to enforce it timely even rarer, this certainly was a landmark triumph.
Amarmani Tripathi – Madhumita Shukla: This belongs to an era that saw Mayawati ruling the reigns of U.P and files and ‘chappals’ being flung at I.P.S/I.A.S officers. Horrid even more so is to realize that the wife herself jointly conspired to kill a woman 7 months pregnant with her husband’s illicit child. With DNA matching the ill-fated fetus of the poetess, it sealed the fate of Tripathi duo tied in matrimony and a life term in jail for the ghastly crime.
Shahi Tharoor – Sunanda Pushkar: Not all love stories have a happy ending, and this one certainly didn’t have one. Surrounded by mystery, this proved to be a deadly cocktail. Found dead in a hotel room of the Leela Palace hotel, Sunanda was laid to rest amidst controversy looming over what lead to her untimely demise. Flanked by injury marks and syringes and AIIMS doctors claiming they had been dictated the autopsy report, Sunanda’s body pointed towards a brief rendezvous turning bitter and toxic. Unresolved this remains, awaiting perhaps skeletons in closet to wake up and speak some day.
