Dear Prime Minister,
We are now entering 2018. Looking back, the year 2017 had a dismal track record on Government’s promised fight against corruption, basically due to lethargy and internal sabotages to save the corrupt in the really big cases. The shocking judgment in the 2G Scam case has created doubts in the minds of common man that anything is possible and the venal are beginning to think that they can get away with anything (in one case even murder)! Nothing can explain the inordinate delays in the corruption cases involving the Sonia family in the National Herald case, and Robert Vadra in the land grabbing case.
For past three years CBI, ED and Income Tax are beating around the bush in the massive land grabbing and money laundering cases related to Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra
The probes into Chidambaram family’s corruption cases like the Aircel-Maxis scam, INX-media bribery case and illegal assets amassed in 14 countries and Ahmed Patel family’s case involving the Sterling Biotech and Sandesara Group companies are moving at a glacial pace. A similar lethargic attitude by the probe agencies is also seen in the various cases against NDTV.
Dear Prime Minister, given below is the status of the probe in each of the high flying cases mentioned above.
National Herald case:
Still the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Income Tax and the Urban Development Ministry has not yet moved an inch in this case involving land grabbing in major cities worth more than Rs.5000 crores by Sonia and Rahul. From trial court to Delhi High Court to Supreme Court, all have ratified the illegalities prima facie and the accused Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders are now out on bail and facing trial in the private case filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy. What prevents the CBI, ED, Income Tax and Union Urban Development Ministry, State Governments of Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh to act on the massive land grab and bank loan jugglery in the name of media operations by these top Congress leaders? Only Haryana Government initiated action and handed over the case to CBI, which is still sitting on the case. As a private complainant Subramanian Swamy has many limitations in providing all the proof and undertaking all the legal proceedings. It is time for Government agencies to do their duty in National Herald scam, which is ratified in all legal forums and trial is going on.
Vadra land grabbing:
For past three years CBI, ED and Income Tax are beating around the bush in the massive land grabbing and money laundering cases related to Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra. People have started losing faith in the Government’s attitude on the fight in regard to high profile corruption cases. There is a general perception among the people that politicians at the top in all parties do under-the-table dealings due to the delay in Vadra probe and other cases.
Chidambaram family cases:
The obscene delays in the Aircel Maxis and INX Media bribe cases probe is really testing the patience of the common man (see Figure 1). Chidambaram’s son Karti is now openly defying summons of CBI and ED and the delay by the agencies have provided ample room for him to drag it to the courts. There is no excuse for the inaction, including the arrest of Karti for not appearing before agencies. Further, Government agencies have still not started to register cases under the Black Money Act and Benami Act for illegally amassing properties in 14 countries and 21 undeclared foreign bank accounts by the members of Chidambaram family. It is an open secret that many top people in the Finance Ministry are trying to hush up the cases against former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s family.
Ahmed Patel family cases:
Ahmed Patel’s family is now caught in the Rs.5000 crore bank loan fraud involving Sterling Biotech and Sandesara Group of companies. The ED officers such as Rajeshwar Singh are facing all kinds of hardships from the corrupt lobby and friends of Chidambaram and Ahmed Patel after the registration of these high profile cases. It is time you read out the riot act to the babus that their loyalties are first and foremost, to the country and anyone indulging in acts of sabotage should be dealt with severely.
India’s premier peddler of fake news, NDTV, is caught by CBI, ED and Income Tax and still the cases move at a pace that can only be described as turtle-like. Even after having been provided proof of the massive rigging by the NDTV promoters in Stock Exchanges, the Regulator Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has not yet acted due to the interference of NDTV-friendly people in the Finance Ministry.
Controversial 2G trial court Judgment:
The government must ensure the immediate appeal and day-to-day basis arguments in the Delhi High Court to bring justice in the 2G Scam trial court judgment, which acquitted all the corrupt persons. This trial court judgment, ignoring all the concrete evidences of money trail and findings of the Supreme Court shows the handiwork of corrupt elements who manage to ensure outcomes to their liking.
Dear Prime Minister, in the light of above-stated facts, I and everyone at Team PGurus urge you to evolve a clear strategy on a war footing to fight corruption, as promised by you to the electorate.
Wishing you a nice 2018 ahead.
