Spread the love           The Hitlerian mindset is in full force. This time it might be an expensive gaffe by the great nonperformer, Arun Jaitley. That millions died, killed by barbaric methods under Hitler did not happen during the Emergency. Only a hapless Jaitley was taken away for short while from his air-conditioned comfort to the jail.
