Amar Singh tapes: His conversations with Anil Ambani, Kushagra Bajaj, Mulayam Singh Yadav, T. Subbirami Reddy

Not able to comment and unable to present my feelings (without loosing civility). Worth reading the full post. Probably, its a small drop in the glass, expect further tapes in future.

Amar Singh is the one huge broker of the decade. Niira Radia may come second or whatever but only after Amar Singh. He is instrumental in making sure INC is in power while cutting deals from all quarters. He is also instrumental in funding a party called Peace Party in UP. The whole reason is to divide muslim votes away from mainstream parties. It changed a lot of results during the byelections. In the end he may broker a deal with INC or SP or may be BSP to allow the peace party to get in alliance. In the process he will continue to be in the corridors of power without really having it.

A: Why are you laughing ..???

Talking to someone about Subroto Roy:
Amar Singh: Hello

A: Wo to kudenge hi, Subroto.
U: Wo pata nahi kuch columnist ka hai kuch gossip item hai pata nahi kya hai. Uska nahi hai matlab, and it's a harmless thing but you know Subroto Roy is very serious on this, as he should be, so Akbar ne bola please ask Amar Singh ji to help me out on this because I don't want any misunderstanding
A: Nahi nahi uska son-in-law hai.
U: Han, jo bhi hai usne bhi ek gali likh diya ki wo kar denge ye kar denge.
A: Han wo to karte hi hai kyunki un logo ka to dhanda hi ye hai (laughs) unka jo hai koi kam dhanda nahi hai, unlike Ambanis unka to ek specific department hai lawyers hai judges hai unka kam hi ye hai ki legal notice denge uske bad jo hai judge jo hai notice de dega. Hamare against mein kisi ne likha tha use kisi purane case mein pakad ke khub pitwaya wo log, They are not nice people.

With DMK's loss at polls, the strategy for DMK will be drag PC into 2G muddle. My hunch is PC will be facing both DMK's and Jaya's music.

India court defers ruling on bail appeals in telecom case
An Indian court Saturday deferred till May 20 its decision on a bail plea filed by lawmaker Kanimozhi Karunanidhi and Sharad Kumar in a high-profile case related to an allegedly rigged sale of telecommunications licenses and bandwidth in 2008.

The agency, in its charges filed April 25, has accused a former telecom minister Andimuthu Raja, Kanimozhi and Kumar of accepting bribes of INR2 billion from Swan Telecom Pvt. Ltd. Director Vinod Goenka and co-founder Shahid Balwa from the accounts of DB Group companies for "undue favors" in the allocation of licenses to Swan Telecom Pvt. Ltd.
The CBI alleges the INR2 billion was funneled to Kalaignar through an intermediary firm, Cineyug Films. This was allegedly aided by Asif Balwa and Rajiv Aggarwal--directors at Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Ltd. and partners of Dynamix Realty, a unit of DB Group --and Karim Morani. Morani is a leading executive of Cineyug.
All named have denied any wrongdoing.

The CBI estimates that the government lost more than INR300 billion ($6.77 billion) in potential revenue. A federal audit body, however, estimates the potential revenue loss to be as much as $40 billion.

Kanimozhi is the second DMK politician to be embroiled in the CBI probe after Raja, who was arrested by the agency in February in this case, in which allegations include bringing forward the cutoff date for filing applications to benefit some companies, and granting licenses to ineligible firms. Raja, along with Shahid and Asif Balwa, Vinod Goenka and Rajiv Aggarwal, are currently in jail.

Subramaniam Swamy was mentioning on TV yesterday that in 2-3 weeks, 3 of INC ministers dirty linen in 2G scam will come into open ( 1 minister is surely going to face the music) and so, the 2G scam stain will not be wiped off INC, making Amma think 10 times before even thinking of aligning with INC.

Any idea who these 3 ministers are?

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s fight against corruption and black money is steadfastly gathering momentum with around 1.5 lakh people promising to join the fast-unto-death in Delhi. Ramdev, who is spearheading the Satyagrah Against Corruption, will be staging an agitation and fast-unto-death in Delhi from June 4 onwards, demanding that the Central government recover black money stashed away in foreign countries by politicians and declare it as public property. Ramdev is also demanding a ban on high denomination currency notes, which he says, is a reason for rampant corruption. He also wants the corrupt to be sentenced to death.

Volunteers launched a toll-free landline number on May 9. A missed call from any mobile number on the toll free number – 022 33081122 – will register the number in their database and updates of the campaign will be sent through text messages.

“Within a week of activating the toll-free number, nearly one crore people have given a missed call. Around 1.5 lakh people have vowed to fast with Baba Ramdev in Delhi,” said Raman Tiwari, a volunteer.

Volunteers, who are spread throughout the country, record the number of registrations daily.

This Sanjiv Bhatt who testified against Modi seems to be a highly dubious character:

Because Modi must be made to pay

At the peak of campaigning in recent assembly polls in West Bengal, the Times Now aired an interview of Purulia arms drop accused Kim Davy. Davy, who had escaped arrest, pointed out that the large cache of arms was meant for the Anand Margis to subvert the democratically elected Left Front government in West Bengal. Though the issue was raised by the Left parties in a rather feeble manner, others tended to dismiss it as a mindless ranting of a criminal who is still eluding law. Davy also claimed that he was escorted out of India under the guidance of intelligence agencies after his plane was force-landed in Mumbai airport.

It is nobody’s case that these allegations should be taken without a pinch of salt. But what is significant is the fact that a hardened criminal like Davy is aware of the growing strains within the Indian federal structure and trying to exploit the situation to cover up his crimes. And there are reasons to believe that whatever Davy is saying is not completely untrue. In the Purlia arms drop case, a senior CBI sleuth once confessed that the investigations met cul-de-sac as it would expose many skeletons in the government’s cupboard. More often than not, another accused Peter Bleach told his CBI interrogators, “If I reveal everything, your government will be embarrassed.” Bleach was subsequently pardoned ostensibly on account of British diplomatic pressure and on grounds of mercy. This is why the CBI inquiry in this serious criminal case proved to be nothing more than hogwash.

It is no coincidence that the UPA government has been employing another tactic to subvert a democratically elected government in Gujarat just as Davy was making these stunning allegations. In this innovative method of subverting a state government, the union government is using the bureaucracy as a tool to run down the state government. It is relying on a set of officers who had run afoul of the state government and were ready to be used as cat’s paw.

One such officer is Gujarat cadre IPS Kuldeep Sharma who has been facing criminal charges in Gujarat but has caught the fancy of the union home ministry on account of his anti-Narendra Modi utterances. Sharma was unilaterally appointed additional DG of BPR&D (bureau of police research and development) by the home ministry disregarding the fact that he was neither relieved nor did he get the mandatory vigilance clearance from the state government.

This issue appears to be snowballing into a serious controversy as the chief secretary of the Gujarat government has written a letter to the union home secretary explaining the flouting of established principles in the appointment. Since the Gujarat government’s missive is stonewalled, the state government has taken this case to court.

Sharma’s case is not an isolated instance. In yet another case, IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt who filed an affidavit in the supreme court against chief minister Narendra Modi, union home minister P Chidambaram gave a pat on his back by describing him as “courageous”. The fact that Bhatt’s assertion in the affidavit has been rejected by the supreme court-appointed special investigation team (SIT) is being conveniently ignored by the home minister.

Take a look at the “courageous” record of Bhatt. On October 17, 1996, (when Modi was nowhere on the Gujarat scene), an FIR was lodged against him in Rajasthan’s Pali district. Bhatt, who was then SP of Banaskantha, Gujarat’s district bordering Rajasthan, was accused of implicating Sumer Singh Rajpurohit in a fake narcotics case to force him to vacate a commercial property. After an inquiry, a charge sheet was filed against Bhatt in the NDPS court, Jodhpur. Though Bhatt obtained a stay order from the supreme court, the NHRC fined him Rs one lakh for his acts of indiscretion. The fine was paid by the state government. Do you want to know who held Bhatt’s brief in the supreme court? None other than P Chidambaram!
The list of Bhatt’s “courageous” acts does not end there. In Jamjodhpur in 1995, Bhatt was just a trainee officer when he was charged with torture and custodial death of Prabhudas Vaishnani. He was again fined by the high court. In yet another case in Porbandar, Bhatt was accused of torturing and giving electric shocks to one detainee, Naran Jadav. Is it not surprising that Bhatt chose to file an affidavit in the supreme court after nine years testifying that he was present in the meeting where the chief minister gave orders to let Hindus vent their anger after the Godhra train incident?
Highly placed sources in Gujarat said that Bhatt had been desperately trying to close all cases against him and seeking intervention from the top. Since he was not entertained and denied promotion, he had many axes to grind against the government, they point out. Against such a background, the union home minister’s eulogising of Bhatt is nothing less than inciting a disgruntled officer to revolt against a chief minister.

That the union government has been discreetly promoting revolt within the state bureaucracy is a complex situation for the Gujarat government to grapple with. More recently, Pradip Sharma, a promoted IAS officer of Gujarat cadre who is languishing in jail on corruption charges, came out against Modi and promised to tell all about Modi’s complicity in communal riots in 2002. Once again, the home minister, who is the cadre-controlling authority of all IAS and IPS officers in the country, appreciated Sharma for coming out against the chief minister. Incidentally, Pradip Sharma and Kuldeep Sharma are brothers.


Having failed to dislodge Modi in elections, the UPA’s new method of subverting the Gujarat government is proving to be quite effective. Given the number of supreme court-mandated investigations going on in the state, a set of disgruntled and often discredited officers have found an easy recourse to challenge a beleaguered chief minister who can do nothing but wait for the court’s decisions. However, in the process of settling a political score with Modi, this innovative method of subverting the state government through the state bureaucracy is grossly undermining our federal structure.

Davy’s allegations against the PV Narasimha Rao government assume significance in view of these facts. If the allegations are to be taken at face value, the Congress party can be credited with innovating new methods, including armed uprising, against democratically-elected state governments.

The Congress’ procilivity to depose state governments run by political adversaries has a long history. The notion of the pre-eminence of the centre over the states got firmly ingrained into the party’s psyche in 1959 when Indira Gandhi as AICC president persuaded prime minister Nehru much against his own democratic impulses to sack the communist government in Kerala. Referring to this, Justice Krishna Iyer had once said that the Congress organised communal violence on a large scale to topple the the Left government, the first non-Congress government of the country. “Nehru fell for the bait,” Justice Krishna Iyer had averred. This tendency to ride roughshod over the states was further reinforced during the Indira regime and subsequent Rajiv Gandhi era when chief ministers were sacked at the whim and fancy of the prime minister.

However, it became difficult to depose an elected government after the SR Bommai judgment which made exercise of article 356 as “justiciable” and imposed stringent conditions to sack an elected state government. In such a scenario, the Congress which has the longest stint at the centre seems to be devising innovative methods of subverting state governments run by political adversaries by undermining established institutios. Even if one chooses to ignore Davy’s revelations, the UPA government’s subversive tactics in Gujarat are a clear indication that the Congress party’s tendency to disregard federalism is incorrigible and seems part of the party’s DNA.

From rediff:

Kanimozhi weeps as she's led into lockup:

We will going back and forth between Bengal and Delhi; between Mamata Banerjee and Kanimozhi.

In Delhi, DMK MP Kanimozhi was in tears as she was led to the lock-up. She will be sent to Tihar jail at 4.45 pm. In Tihar she will be allowed a mat, a fan, medicines, magazines, and will have an attached bathroom.

Her cell neighbours are a pimp and a spy.

Kanimozhi can now appeal to the Delhi High Court for bail, saysCBI laywerAK Singh andwill be produced before the court tomorrow. Remember, theSupreme Court has directed that this case beheard on a day-to-day basis.

I hope this is the beginning of the fall of the mu.ka clan. The people could not find 24 hrs a day enough for looting. They should have "power cuts" in the jail too. It is now 5 hrs power cuts in TN. Let these buckers enjoy some too.

And let's not forget Radia and Barkha too. I am surprised that these two have survived outside Tihar so far. Abetting Facilitating the biggest corruption scandal in the history of independent India isn't exactly known as being "innocent".

And offcourse Sibal - the guy was shouting at top of this lungs that there was no loss to the exchequer and now not a squeak from his lound trap. At the very least, clearly an attempt to mislead the public assuming that he did not get a share of Kani's 200cr bribe booty while holding a cabinet post. This nutcase too needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of law.

How many farmers in Tamil Nadu committed suicide last year?

I noticed one thing in most western democracies, and that is citizen links itself to the government in virtually EVERYTHING!!!
For example: US citizens demand to cut paki aid because 'its their money'
For any move the government takes, the people 'demand their tax spending report' for its their hard earned money.

Such public link with the government is not seen here for some reason beyond me. mango aadmi sees himself 'de-linked' to whatever the government does. For example, in the 2g spectrum scam, i doubt a lot of people even know what significance spectrum allocation has to their lives.
To generate that public 'anger', everything the government does needs to be linked to something significant to the aam admi. Anna hazare provided the staging ground for such an 'anger' but it still fails to keep piblic attention as the junta has no basic link( or nothing to relate to) with cwg or 2g..... I hope u get where i am going this.

"Its MY money"
"Its MY HARD EARNED CASH"
"Am i going to let that babu just take it away?"
"I may not have visited the cwg village, i dont know what spectrum allocation exactly means... BUT ITS MY MONEY FOR MY KIDS, FAMILY etc...."

Why dont we see such basic links being made by the public to the government?? Especially the 'alien' middle class??

Rivals use RTI to dig dirt on Pawar clan
Though the RTI Act came into force six years ago, RTI applicants began targeting the Pawar family after allegations arose of its involvement in an IPL team and its links with Vinod Goenka, who is mired in the multi-crore 2G spectrum scam.

RTI applicants successfully obtained information on lands allotted to the Goenkas in the Pune region and the trusts set up by them. Through RTI, it was confirmed that Pawar's daughter and son-in-law were trustees of an organization in which members of the Goenka family were also trustees. A more shocking revelation involved the use of a private aircraft of Shahid Balwa, also an accused in the 2G scam, by Pawar and Praful Patel and Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray. Ajit Pawar too has not escaped the scrutiny of RTI applicants, who have secured information on lands allotted by him to developers.

When Sharad Pawar, some in Congress are also involved in 2G spectrum, Why DMK is only sacrificed?

My guess two reasons

- SP knows too much INC stuff (He was an insider for a long time) and may have some clues on terror attacks
- INC can think of forming an alliance with any party in TN where as in Maha it is not possible

Pawar, PC and Pranab Da are long timers and they are the last three in Congress who knows all the dirt. They are there since times immemorial starting from IG times in various ministries. PC is the most cunning of all and he is there even in Turd Front govs. They all have too much of photo copies of 2G/3G backgrounds and deals and wheels.

Inspite of huge anti-Pawar sentiments and an extreme hate for SG against Pawar, they still stuck with alliance in Maha.

All we see is just psy-ops, one-upmanship etc. In Telugu there is a perfect word called as musukulo guddulata. I can't translate it.

Shadow Boxing is play acting.

Here its more like landing blows in the fog so as to cause hurt without the perpetrator being known.

I think if Sharad Pawar looses in Maharastra then he will face the same fate i suppose. I think Congress learnt to test the public sentiments and voting behaviour! The Congress supreme has all evidences and use them in an appropriate time. When they leak these things thru CBI or thru some controller, why not stop before these 2gspectrum selling happening? Is it because the numbers in Parliament?

Pawar is super Kalmadi, says BJP
http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes ... nata-party

Radia, during her interrogation, told CBI that Pawar may be a honcho in the controversial DB Realty firm and might have pursued A Raja to issue 2G spectrum and licence to Swan Telecom. (Read:2G Scam: Niira Radia implicates Sharad Pawar)

In the statement filed by the CBI, Radia was quoted as saying, "That as per the general perception in Mumbai as well as outside DB Realties (sic) directly or indirectly (is) controlled by Sharad Pawar and his family members."

Though statements cannot be taken at its face value but it was Sharad Pawar who trapped DMK into this scam then he escapes.

Is it not axiomatic that a person who traps the weaker(not the innocent) party generally gets away unless he(the trap setter) has overplayed his cards?Any way,even Mu.Ka is never going to be brought to justice.

Yet it would be wrong to think that Sharad Pawar is not under pressure.The Congress is relentlessly reducing his space.
