WikiLeaks: TR Balu shamelessly asked PM for favoursWikileaks on corruption by TR Balu: “For UPA, even blatant corruption is ok if it means keeping the coalition together.”

US Embassy says that PM’s image has taken a beating as PMO was also involved in the scandal: “Due to intervention by the Prime Minister’s Office, the controversy has personally touched the Prime Minister and eroded the integrity of his upright and honest image. His muted response, failure to punish Baalu, and his link, however tenuous, to a particularly crass Baalu play to use power blatantly for personal monetary profit has sullied the Prime Minister. It shows that for the UPA, even blatant corruption is ok if it means keeping the coalition together. ” (para 1)

US Embassy further says that Balu defended his actions without any remorse: “Unabashedly and with no concern for ethical conduct, he defended his actions of asking the Prime Minister to “put in a word” for his sons and the Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Murli Deora for a favour to avoid closure of the company. He rhetorically asked the Parliament, “What is wrong with it?” (para 2)
