Prashant Bhushan may have pushed his luck too far this time

This is the same Prashant Bhushan who had filed a petition on Rafale last year and which Supreme Court had dismissed, saying "there is no reason to doubt the decision-making process." Bhushan has now raked up another plea on Rafale for Supreme Court to reconsider its judgment, the hearing of which began on Thursday.

(When Bhushan's first petition on Rafale was thrown out by Supreme Court, the former had said: "new disclosures are expected soon." This was on December 18, 2018. Just a few weeks later, The Hindu began its series of stories on Rafale. How did Bhushan know about the "new disclosures"? It raises the suspicion of a lobby working in unison.)

Now to the biggest irony that has concerned me for long. Prashant Bhushan who files petitions and PILs as Virat Kohli scores his centuries, a monotonous regularity, hasn't touched Arvind Kejriwal all these years. Both run/have run NGOs, both worked together on Anna Hazare's manch, both lent shoulders in forming Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), both were part of AAP's Political Affairs Committee (PAC) before Kejriwal threw out Bhushan from the party with impunity. Why has Bhushan taken such a humiliation lying down? Does Kejriwal know something about Bhushan which the world doesn't know? My guess is as good as yours.
