This 12 page FIR clearly indicates the violations and acts of nepotism committed by Chidambaram.
The writer of the article in the Scroll website is Sruthisagar Yamunan, who was earlier a Chennai based reporter of ‘The Hindu’ newspaper and grandson of veteran lawyer K Parasaran and nephew of senior lawyer Mohan Parasaran. The Chidambaram family is very close with the Parasaran family. Here the writer Sruthisagar Yamunan tries to debunk the CBI FIR and asks questions that a sensible journalist would not ask. The writer even asks why CBI did not name any officials. Any sensible person would be aware that in FIRs, many details would not be put and all details will come only in the charge sheet after further probes are done.
This 12 page FIR clearly indicates the violations and acts of nepotism committed by Chidambaram. This one line is enough for any sensible reporter that CBI has enough details about the violations committed by the former Finance Minister Chidambaram. “Such deceitful and fallacious proposal was favourably considered by the officials of Finance Ministry and approved by the then Finance Minister,” said the FIR. If the writer missed this line, then he is starting to create doubt in the minds of the readers and hence the only conclusion that a reader can draw is that this is a paid news post for Chidambaram and son.
The fact that Caravan Magazine and Business Standard also carried the report from Scroll website adds credence to this theory. Caravan Magazine published this article even in their Facebook page and Twitter account!
Business Standard also carried this Scroll article supporting Chidambaram and Karti.
This article shows the depths to which India’s media has sunk. The sad part is that many are blissfully ignorant of the media’s role in shaping news to aid a particular viewpoint. What is even more surprising is that this specious article is also published by reputed media sites like Business Standard and Caravan Magazine.
