These sort of "I scratch your back,you scratch my back" type journalists are the real curse of this profession.These law breakers should be thrown out the public properties they have occupied illegally.The funniest thing is the explanation the Manorama has published!All these fraud,scamster juurnalists should be exposed.....Oh John Mundakkayam,G Vinod,P Kishore.....leave this profession and go back to your old ones...Else the public will spit on your face.....!!
We see scams by politicians, cricketers, bankers and babus. All these are discovered, investigated, reported and at times even judged, by the media - the keepers of the public conscience. Now, when the media themselves become scamsters, flying all conscience to the winds, then the last bastion itself has fallen. As always, another piece of 'courageous journalism' from Indian Express. Kudos to Shaju Philip for bringing out the story. As an aside, I would like to know the few who began paying back too stopped paying after sometime. Were they coerced by force to do so? Will they get back their monies? Ok, don't bother with the last question.
The governments are given notice and take actions for the repayment of loans against the poor farmers and students if they fail. this interest is not seen in this issue so, there is a hidden agenda behind this.
Nice observation brother, no wonder why Kerala Kaumudi which is known to be a pro-CPIM (Pinarayi Faction) and Kairali TV who are the advocates of CPIM are in the journalists list. Probably Kairali TV also has some hidden agenda to destroy its own political party. Get a life boy!! Why Shajahan of Asianet, Anantha Krishnan of India vision are not in the list? Are they with CPIM now?
Mr. Ajay Nair, The issue is not the political affiliation of the defaulters. We should ask the government to redeem these loans irrespective of their political leaning. Please look at the issue without coloured glasses.
Yes, this is what journalism in India has been about, currying favour, getting tidbits, stealing from the taxpayer, and then pointing fingers at others who do the same.
the socially responsible journalists don't have coutesy of paying less 10lakhs for 1500 sq ft flats which will sell for 30lakhs in current marked.
This is a classic example how the very 'Aam Aadmi' in India is cheating other people. The money of the government is the money of the people. If the government, waives this amount, then it would be a failure of democracy in itself.
Thanks for the article. This explains the irrational anti-cpm news in Kerala media.
Journalist make breaking story daily on News channels and Newspapers giving stories of defaults and irregularities committed by others. If these journalist cannot pay rs 2500- to rs 4000 per month - they should not have taken the flat at all. They should be made to pay the full amount with penalties like any other common man. Journalist sensationalize news on trivial matters and they should not be given any special treatment at all. A time limit should be given for paying off dues and the houses should be auctioned- The supreme court has clearly stated the exchequer should not be put to loss on account of Nation natural wealth including flats.
Keep it up Dear Yellow J JJ ????
