So true sir ... my native is same as P Chidambaram's
) native place. Even though he belongs to a different community - i always used to admire him for his erudition until a decade or so but i hold only bad opinions about him these days. Even the whole of PC's native region of Sivaganga knows about his antics. In the last 2014 LS elections - he put up his Son Karti Chidambaram to run under the INC symbol and his son lost his deposit coming 4th in vote count. This would have been the case even if PC had himself stood for election but he truly chickened out and Nirmala Sitharaman never failed to mention this during campaigning for BJP in TN during LS 2014 elections. Even BJP with nary a party structure in TN & with very little party worker strength came 3rd in this seat and eventually a Lawyer from ADMK won the seat. History of PC's Family & about his community
PC hails from a very wealthy, pseudo-princely family (his grandfather - originally a well known industrialist, banker and philanthropist - was given the title 'Raja of Chettinad' by the British Colonialists) and PC was born rich. Lots of coffee estates in Coorg & other big investments were inherited by him through his family. He is related to MA Chidambaram (remember the name associated with the Chepauk Cricket ground in Chennai ) and also to erstwhile owner of Chettinad Cements (late MAM Ramasamy) & AC Muthiah (who like Vijay Mallaya has supposedly fled to Singapore it seems because one of his company - First Leasing - is caught in fraudelent activities
and also former owner of the almost bankrupt SPIC). I remember that PC used to joyously attend the various annual Hindu Temple festivals local to Sivaganga and keenly took part in the associated Scholarly Tamil debate competitions during the 1980s &1990s and local people as well as his community people used to have more faith in him during those times - to make that region more prosperous. In reality - PC belongs to a very small Saivite Hindu community ... called Nattukottai Chettiars aka Nagarathars ... who are amongst the most active Hindus world over whether it is in terms of contributing to well being & taking care of the big old temples of TN or in spreading Hinduism as a part of their old business related travels ( in 19th & 20th centuries) to South-east Asia where they set up the Murugan & Vinayak temples in Burma, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philliphines, Cambodia & etc and allowed even the locals to take part in the worshipping of the Hindu gods. Many of these temples are active even these days. So you can understand about PC's history in terms of the family and community from which he comes. I used to believe he was a proper well educated person but since the 2000s he has become noticeably bent in his basic nature. These days - PC claims that there is no god.
Being rich due to his large family inheritances - there is absolutely no need either for PC to siphon of money exploiting his political & government positions, to further maintain benamis on his behalf or for his son to indulge in the same too. But PC has undergone a big transformation towards the bad side IMO and i am a long time observer of him. It is good that his son is facing failures at his first attempts to come into politics because if he were to come in as an MLA or MP .. he can influence the government & judiciary to not act against his father's willful wrong doings.
PC is a very clever & smooth operator. Still PC (& in some cases even his son Karti) is caught up in numerous cases ( Ishrat Jahan case & deliberately forging wrong info against NaMo when he was Home Minister, 2G scam & A.Raja of DMK wants to sing the truth out but is not being allowed too for some reason, Black Money to White transactions in Vasan Eye Care using foreign Venture Capitalists, Aircel-Maxis case ..). But the Father & Son duo seem to be able to escape punishment because PC seems to have help from MSM in Delhi, seems to also have planted many of his lackey IAS officers & subservient people in home ministry, finance ministry & elsewhere to prevent the cases against him from going beyond first level of investigation. Why ... oh my god ... are these cases not going any further ???. If at all any arrogant guy needs to be nailed down and shamed .. its PC ... more so after he misused his position to mint money illegally inspite of having been born in a very very rich family. Even PC's daughter-in-law and Karthi's wife .. a Vice-President in Apollo Hospitals .... is supposed to hold a sizeable chunk of shares of Apollo Hospitals. Apollo Hospitals is also caught in the Maran Brothers' Aircel-Maxis Scam and Apollo Hospitals facilities was raided once again across the nation by I-T folks in January 2016.
But PC shamelessly fools himself & the rest of the observant world by faking his innocence about the corruption taints against him. The Father and Son duo did indulge in criminally punishable activities as per this article & acted in the manner that well known journalist & CA Mr.Swaminathan Gurumurthy has explained in his own article in the NEW Indian Express newspaper
. If you take up this topic of PC's mask of honesty being ripped out by Gurumurthy, minority religion Tamils refuse to believe it and most will say that it is Modi who is taking revenge on PC. Not suprisingly - That is the hold PC has among educated Minority religion folks in TN even though these same folks will repetaedly vote for DMK when given the option to vote for either DMK or INC.Gurumurthy and his recent Benami Wealth related accusations via Newspaper articles against PC & his son KartiGurumurthy
has aready described in detail on how PC and his son used VASAN Eye Care
for converting their black money to white money. When Gurumurthy's article appeared in the newspapers - PC immediately warned that he is going to file a case against New Indian Express and the newspaper as well as Gurmurthy welcomed it and dared PC to first file the defamation suite against the paper & then open his mouth. But till date - Neither PC nor his son have filed a case against the New Indian Express or Gurumurthy. Also Gurumurthy goes about answering questions from Tamil News TV channels on his assertions about the Benamis-for-PC & his-Son-Karti accusations, by repeatedly challenging PC & his Son Karti to file a case against him if there is even a slight iota of untruth in it and there are no responses yet from PC. PC is caught in a slightly tough situation but his pawns in CBI/Finance Ministry/I-T seem to be helping him out and stalling the progress in these I-T & criminal activity cases. When Gurumurthy was questioned about lack of movement in these I-T raids against Karti Chidambaram in Tamil News Channels - he keeps saying ... wait for some more time and things will start moving there too. I am eagerly waiting to see PC & his Son Karti being punished legally for their morally criminal acts that have been shielded using loopholes in the Indian law system.
The worst thing ... as a father of daughters .. for me .... is that Karti Chidambram has brought in his minor aged girl Aditi Nalini Chidambaram into the benami transactions because the benami holders have expressed in the wills (taken by I-T dept during raid at Karti's house) that they would like to transfer their complete ownership of the (benami shell) company to Aditi Nalini Chidambaram after the end of their life and the executor of this will would be her father Mr.Karti Chidambaram.
Levels to which some stupid already rich people go to ... to greedily acquire immoral wealth. This young lady would be remembered for a long time - just for having featured in the wills of the benami owners of her father's companies. I dont know how Karti Chidambaram's wife felt about this sort of an arrangement - because she also comes from an illustrious family that is associated with medical field in Chennai.
I sometimes wonder if PC has turned into a black sheep & is being blackmailed to operate for certain Criminal or Anti-Indian entities - under the pressure of release of some video evidences of him caught in some well laid out traps during his ministerial tenures in Delhi.
