Is the PC gang behind fake complaints?

The Supreme Court on Wednesday barred all “illegal and dubious” probes against Enforcement Directorate’s Joint Director and 2G cases Investigating Officer Rajeshwar Singh. In his petition, the ED officer said that some anonymous complaints were filed against him after he attached Karti Chidambaram’s bank accounts and properties in Aircel-Maxis scam. The Bench comprising of Justice J Chelameswar and Justice S Abdul Nazeer issued a notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Government of India to reply within three weeks and directed no action would be initiated against Rajeshwar Singh till Court’s approval.

Rajeshwar Singh’s advocate Gopal Sankaranarayanan highlighted the hardships faced by Rajeshwar Singh for the past five years. Supporting the petition, BJP leader and 2G cases petitioner Subramanian Swamy told the court that Rajeshwar Singh is an “honest officer” and Court should protect such honest officers targeted by corrupt politicians. Another petitioner Prashant Bhushan also supported the petition.

First, a set of complaints were registered against the ED officer in 2010-2011 when he summoned controversial lobbyist Nira Radia. The Supreme Court had trashed all the complaints and ensured protection to the investigating officer in 2011. During the UPA’s tenure, Chidambaram as Finance Minister did all dubious activities to shunt Rajeshwar Singh from ED and his attempts were failed after BJP leader Subramanian Swamy approached the Supreme Court. The officer joined ED in 2006 from UP Police Service and was absorbed in the ED by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). But in 2012, the Finance Ministry under Chidambaram rejected the absorption for some mysterious reasons. Rajeshwar won the case in Central Administrative Tribunal and all other forums. The Finance Ministry under Arun Jaitley and officers like the then Revenue Secretary Shaktikanta Das tried every trick in the book to shunt the officer from ED, who was reporting directly to the Supreme Court-monitored 2G and Aircel Maxis scam.

At one point, the Finance Ministry under Arun Jaitley lied in the Supreme Court that all probes in Aircel-Maxis probe were over and that Rajeshwar Singh should be transferred. In September 2014, on Swamy’s petition, Supreme Court ordered permanent absorption of Rajeshwar Singh in three days. Even after the Supreme Court’s order, the Finance Ministry conducted a service case against the officer. His promotion as Joint Director was delayed for more than three years.

Rajeshwar Singh in his petition to the Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia said that all these are frivolous complaints after he attached Karti Chidambaram’s properties. Recently after the attachment of Karti’s properties in Aircel-Maxis scam, all the enemies of Rajeshwar Singh ganged up and started filing anonymous complaints against. Their motive was to harass the officer and prevent his due promotion as Additional Director.

  1. Arun Jaitley is trying all dirty tricks to save his buddy Chidambaram. Modi and Amit Shaha should take action against this frauds of Jaitley

  2. PM Modi blind love for AJ would cost dearer to Nation.
    PM Modi deliberately deprived the Nation from the benefits of the Competence of Dr. Swamy as being Finance Minister of India and that to for useless fellow AJ.

  3. This seems to be a regular trick of the PC gang. They did the same to the IT commisioner Chennai who was handling Vasan Eye hospital. The IT officer handling the NDTV case was treated the same way and was harassed. It is great that people like Subramanian Swamy and Gurumurthy lend support to such honest officers.

  4. Great effort Dr Swamy Ji. keep up your good work. The goos people of India, the diaspora and the world are with you. India must be rid of the corrupt what come may.

  5. Indian individuals are great. When there is anything against the country…one great indian comes out to fight against. This time a deadly honest man Mr. Rajeshwar Singh came out against the currupt politicians…it’s quite natural they will do their best to wipe out all the efforts of Mr. Singh but they should learnt that “Singh is King”.
    Keep going Mr. Singh we all are with you. Proud to be an Indian…Jai Hind.
