Cock and Bull story of Rs.700 crore aid from UAE for Kerala flood relief. Who fooled Kerala CM? Who played mischief?

It appears as though the Kerala government has fallen for a fake news of Rs.700 cr aid and made claims without checking facts

It appears as though the Kerala government has fallen for a fake news of Rs.700 cr aid and made claims without checking facts
Vijayan taken for a ride? Fake news of UAE aid?

At last, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s claim of Rs.700 crore (100 million US dollars) offer from United Arab Emirates (UAE) for flood relief operations has turned out to be a typical Cock & Bull story. Who misled Vijayan? On August 21, Vijayan told media about this huge offer from UAE and many Left – Liberals and pro-Left and anti-Modi journalists started latching on this Cock & Bull story and started ridiculing Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “only offering just Rs.600 crores” to Kerala and started boasting of UAE’s special love for Kerala while Modi led Centre’s non-caring attitude to calamity-struck Kerala.

No authority in UAE ever offered this so-called Rs.700 crores relief to Kerala. According to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, this offer of assurance was made by the UAE Ruler Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and that this message was conveyed to him by Kerala-based business tycoon M. A. Yusuf Ali.

“Today morning, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, informed our Prime Minister about their contribution for Kerala and this was conveyed to me by M.A. Yusuf Ali… We also express the gratitude of Kerala to HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and the Emir of Abu Dhabi, and HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime Minister of UAE and Emir of Dubai, said Vijayan at his press conference[1].

After 2004, as a policy, the Government of India has stopped receiving such aid offers from foreign governments. Soon Left-wing journalists and anti-Modi journalists started the campaign that though rules or policy don’t permit, Modi should allow Kerala to accept this huge offer from UAE. To make matters interesting, the Finance Minister of Kerala Thomas Isaac also waded into this:

What an irresponsible statement from the Finance Minister of Kerala! Is this how he writes his budget figures? By the way, he is also heading a sub-committee of the Goods and Services Tax (GST). No wonder the GST tax structure is so messed up.

Now the cat is out of the bag. The Dubai based Keralite industrialist Yusuf Ali said on Thursday (August 23) that he does not know anything about this offer and that he has nothing to do with this. Yusuf Ali’s communication department also issued a statement that they would initiate legal proceedings against media houses if his name is dragged into the controversy. Yusuf Ali’s Lulu Group has already donated $5 million Dirhams (Rs. 10 crores) to Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.

Did Vijayan misunderstand what Yusuf Ali said? Or did someone fool him? Or did Vijayan try to create a controversy? Without a written offer, how can a Chief Minister fall for such hearsays? Before an official announcement from UAE authorities, how did the media create this controversy? These things expose the role of mischief makers even during the time of calamities. Simply put – this is nothing but a classic Nigerian email bumper offer-like fraud.

  1. The lesson from this incident is,

    ” Business men should be considered and dealt as business men. Rulers should be dealt as rulers. Business man should never become a government spokesman and ruler must not utter a word without any proper backups & support”. Each and every people has their own duties. Some people wants to show off too much fame and publicity that they are controlling governments. Atlast they end up in such problems.

  2. Best solution is to ask UAE ( or Saudi Arabia whoever wants to help) to take in ALL the Rohingya muslims in our midst . Plus all the Muslims of India like javed akthar , shabana azmi , owaisi , farhan akthar, fauk abdullah omar , etc etc . Their die hard supporters the communists & media people -barkha dutts , slurdesais etc I mean the secular charlatans . Who are considerable in number.

    Their religion is the same. Food habits are the same. Hindus’ burden gets lightened thus. Our unarmed harmelss Hindus’ lives would be saved from vicious murderous cow smugglers. Our Cows , Buffaloes , Calves etc would surely WELCOME such a move.

    Ditto for christians in our midst. uk , America , Australia, Europe -the rich christian countries should take them all in. Including john dayals , mohan lazarus , entire kollywood fraternity . All the ngos too.

    It would be easier to govern Bharath sans these two INIMICALS. No more appeasement , no vote bank either. Money of christians remains within their own countries. Why go through convoluted ways of sending them through good for nothing ngos ? And Indian government need not waste its time trying to trace the source etc etc.

    With media gone noise pollution would come down. India vainly says its bollykolly crap are very much in demand abroad all over Egypt , Middle East , South Africa , Europe . Hence it makes enormous sense to send them all FREE to the above mentioned countries. Let them carry on their lungi dance jhatko matko in uk etc etc.

    • I’m an Indian and a Christian, i would not like to move to a stupid country like USA. Or any other country for that matter. I was born here in India, which provides religious freedom in the midst of bigot buffoons like you.

  3. The communists and congressites under the leadership of the italian family will do anything to loot this country. Look at the joker ‘pappu’ bad mouthing our country abroad.

  4. Generally as I have seen on few occasions,along with conversation with indian and pakistani muslims,Saudi ,generally will iltreat muslims from other countries.They have no love lost to anybody and this news was surprising.Also for a wahabi muslim,general terms used in rest of the world,like compassion,equality,human rights,truth,honesty,integerity etc does not mean anything.For them it is sharia and only that.In saudi they execute fellow country men and woman with a sword in a very barbaric way saying that it is ordained by Allha .Hence this exhibition of such compassion was a little bit of surprise.What was not surprising was how the finance minister spoke against modiji.Center must ensure that the benefits should reach hindus first and directly.

    • Not at all.

      Saudi Arabia is a well governed Country. One has to abide by their rules.
      Why do you expect every country to be anarchic like India ?

      Saudi Arabia is THE ideal Country for amir khans , owaisis , javed akthar , farhan akthar , shabana azmi
      shah rukh khans , entire kollywood fraternity , yechurys , dk , dmk , pmk folks & useless media ( barkha dutts , siddart varadarajsn etc) .

  5. Hello team..This is my challenge to you. 2 major news media -Indian express and Times Now says the exact words of Kerala CM , that the offer was made to Modi while speaking on phone not to him, so why you drag businessman into this. There are unanswered questions I agree your report is another fabrication of the truth.

    • The commie media spread the distorted news/ fake news based on Kerala CM tweet. Kerala CM got aid news, from a third party dragging the name of M.A.Yousuf Ali who denounced it as fake news. How does the Kerala CM know that aid offer was made to PM ? Is he having mole in PM office ?Again fake news. IE & TOI only parroted tweet of Kerala CM. How can Pgurus article is fabrication of truth, when UAE ambassador has denied, they did not offer any aid and are assessing if any aid is required. Truth can never be fabricated, please introspect.

      The problem with commies is they thrive on anti Modi and anti India propaganda with drum beating by MSM and hours of useless debates in TV. What was the need for Kerala CM to tweet on aid by UAE? Here the fake news seed has been planted. By the way Vatican held special prayers for Keralites, not Indians. I read this in a paper, hope this is not fake news.

    • Mr. Jinu, Let Yousuf Ali come out and said what he told to Kerala CM. Seems Mr.Ali might have said something and Chief Minister just said something on it. Fault is with Kerala CM for taking the words or quoting the words of so called conversation with Yusuf Ali. He became a fool

  6. Mahesh D….Please elucidate on the peculiar nature of Malabaries. Why are you biased against them? Because they are capable, enterprising and like a good standard of life unlike those who earn millions but still live like being under the poverty line??

  7. Pgurus = paid gurus

    Your first paragraph itself says “many Left – Liberals and pro-Left and anti-Modi journalists”

    Lol paid chaddi acting like journalist with your fake paid websites.. go fuck yourself chaddi losers. You can obly fool the uneducated north indians. Not the remaining people.

  8. Most of the fund raising missionaries provide some initial money themselves to some celebrity to give , so that it will be an advertisment and more n more funds are collected.
    RSS workers too who were in rescue operations were killed but the christian funded media will project the christian fishermen who came for help later. A christian policeman who was shot in Rajasthan was given one crore by tamilnadu govt and leftist funded media was showing his death ceremony as if he was a great army soldier just because he was a christian convert.
    Usha a pillion rider who death was an accident was provided huge coverage by Christian funded media so that more funds pour in for them.
    Missionaries even use their cine stars like Kamal to donate their money with his hands only to make other people or encourage more donations further or to make that person popular.
    Nurse lini (or someone) in Kerala for nipah virus… It’s enough for the media if it were a christian to popularise them through their media and get money with sympathy either from states or from common public. There are a lot of nurses who die in taking care of the patients, armymen who die daily…but funded media is interested only if they are christians or converts.

  9. There is a clause in the 2016 document signed by PM Modi.It is available on the website ndma.gov.in. On the 145th page of the document Paragraph 9.2 it is given “”As a matter of policy, the Government of India does not issue any appeal for foreign assistance in the wake of a disaster. However, if the national government of another country voluntarily offers assistance as a goodwill gesture in solidarity with the disaster victims, the Central Government may
    accept the offer. The Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India is required to coordinate with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, which is primarily responsible for reviewing foreign offers of assistance and channelizing the same. In consultation with the concerned State Government, the MHA will assess the response requirements that the foreign teams can provide.””
    So much for accurate reporting. This document is given in the official website for disaster management. Saying such and such was the Indian governments policy a decade ago is foolish .Political opportunism played a major role in this decision.

    • DId you read the post correctly? it was about some one offering SEVEN HUNDRED CRORE as an aid, does anyone even know how much money is that? UAE would rater keep that sort of money to herself given current state of Dubai economy. 700Cr WOW that’s just incredible

  10. UAE donation of Rs. 700 crores is a joke – actually it is ill gotten money of our corrupt politicians which has been parked abroad will not be channelized as white money. Kerala CM should have some spine when seeking aid – that its residents are beggars of foreign aid. Kerala people are enterprising & can make a living on their own & intelligent people Some poor who really lost their property or belongings damaged due to the floods, can be compensated with own domestic funds.

  11. This was an attempt by the Kerala Government to divert the attention from its blunder of opening all dams simultaneously that caused the sudden flood. The simultaneous opening of all dams in one go got leaked and environmentalists, disaster management experts blasted the Government for the same. The brief given to Kerala media from AKG Centre was to suppress the spread of this information. The Kerala media obliged to the Marxist directive. And , of course, there was Narendra Modi for them to be blamed for everything. Good Analysis, Team PGurus … Keep it up…

  12. Mr. M.A. Yousef Ali is a credible business man having close ties with rulers across the globe and so credible is Kerala CM Mr. Vijayan. Mr. Yousef has not built his empire on cheap propaganda and he can’t lie to a state head for nothing. He has clearly denied today the false propaganda going around in the social media that ‘if Indian Administration has any issue to receive funds from UAE govt, he can rout the fund thru his sources’. No business man of his stature can give such an offer in public platform, and he denied that and has issued statement that he would bring in front of law such volunteers who propogate false claims.
    CM had clearly stated in a press release on the scenerio and in which the UAE govt had made the offer to our PM. Whole country know it is a fact and PM had moral obligation to convey such consideration offered to people of Kerala to head of State, which he didn’t do. The huge offer made by UAE is a consideration to Keralites who is a part of UAE’s history and the brotherhood.
    Indian Administration has discretionary authority to decide on whether to accept or reject and it’s the PM who has to reject the claim made by Kerala CM that UAE made the offer to our PM.. Swamy and other BJP media propagandists will prove fools trying to malign Kerala ‘s credibility.

    • “…..and in which the UAE govt had made the offer to our PM. Whole country know it is a fact and ….”. Did UAE govt give anybody anything in writing while “making the offer to the PM”? If so please show it. It transpires that no such offer was ever made by UAE govt. it’s an imaginary offer just to blame Modi.

    • What are you blabbering about. The said person has rejected this claim, meaning it was the CM who was laying. That too under oath.

    • The question is why was the offer if any from UAE made to Kerala and not to calamities in other states ? Basically there are more Indians from other states, who have contributed to UAE, Sindhis, Gujaratis and Andhra labour.

      What is the credibility of Kerala to be maligned and further blame Swamy ? It is a bankrupt state which depends on central government for salaries. All youngsters migrate to other states for jobs. India doesn’t need any financial help from abroad to fight natural calamities and with out army’s help, the state would have perished. PM need not be taught of his role, and CM of Kerala is like CM of any other Indian state.

    • UAE has got many nationals working. Kerala is only one state of India. Many other states had flood and natural calamities before, many peoples from Bihar, UP, Utharanjal, Gujarat are working in UAE like Keralites and UAE never offered such huge money to any other state of India or any other countries like Bengladesh, Pakistan etc.
      So it is foolish for Pinarayee to believe such blunder.
      Also UAE government especially Dubai rulers are not famous for charity. They are business minded people. It is a well known fact that world’s black money is concentrated in Dubai, Indian and Pakistani black money is a major contribution in that black money. In fact if a newtral agency investigated, the truth behind the foundation of Dubai will be surfaced.

      Youseph Ali is a Keralite Business man and he has contributed a big amount already to Kerala flood relief. He doesn’t need any cheap popularity. It is understood that LULU legal department already started framing complaints about bad cyber trollers of CPM/SDPI sympathisers. The truth will be out in the days to come.

  13. Deep investigation is needed. This may be a novel method of MONEY LAUNDERING. In the name of accepting DONATIONS FOR FLOOD RELIEF, an attempt may be made to reroute the BAD MONEY FROM INDIA to return to Kerala – which can be misused.

  14. Kerala public should realise that the devil is inside you UDF and LDF. The peculiar nature of Malbaries leads them to Bad Karma. Result is there and in Middle east no right minded religious Indian or otherwise likes the Malbari community as they found them as bad friends and conniving colleagues. God has shown the right path to the atheist.

  15. Such fools or frauds?? Real Cock & Bull story these guys jumped on. Problem is they want to blame PM for each and everything
