The Punjab National Bank-Nirav Modi fraud case shows how corruption has gone into the very bone and marrow of state-owned banks. It all started when the PNB MD, Sunil Mehta, make a shocking announcement that their bank had detected a “fraudulent and unauthorized” transaction worth Rs 11,400 crore.
It was only then the plotters, Nirav Modi and his partners, came into focus who were booked by the CBI for allegedly cheating Punjab National Bank of over Rs 280.7 crore in 2017. Their Rs 280 crore fraud had now reached over Rs 11,400 crore.
Now, every day we hear stories of people getting arrested and scam unfolding further, and in the midst of all this drama, acclaimed author Shobha De had pointed out one intriguing thing which definitely demands attention.
We know about Shobhaa De’s massive crush on Ex-RBI governor, Raghuram Rajan, as she wrote an entire column over his ‘Sensex’ appeal when he came into power. Now that Raghuram has parted ways with the Indian government, it seems that Shobhaa De’s love for him has faded, too.
She made an indirect remark on him on Twitter regarding the PNB remark and questioned his stature.
Excuse me, but what was Raghuram Rajan doing when all this PNB wheeling and dealing was going on?

Twitterati, too, agreed with her point of view and trolled Raghuram Rajan like a boss.
He is thinking what to do, so that government sings –
