Former Delhi Police Commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi on Tuesday said that the noise on the disclosure will vanish soon as the political systems never junk their ‘own corrupt’.
“Noise on panama papers will vanish soon because political systems across the spectrum never junk their own corrupt. I saw it even in Delhi,” Bassi tweeted.
Going all gaga over #panamapapers may call for caution as some of the accounts may be within the scope of some random rules or civil wrongs.
