From Rs 50 lakh to Rs 300 crore in just 3 years! Meet the most corrupt billionaire from the Gandhi Dynasty

There are two ways to become a rich businessman in India. The first way is to work hard and smartly, for example, the Ambanis, Tatas and the Birlas. The second way is to work cunningly, like Robert Vadra. But I advise you not to follow the second way.

Millions of Indians still can’t believe how a low profile businessman and a son of a brassware trader got married to Priyanka Gandhi of the Gandhi dynasty. What is even more surprising is how this businessman managed to increase his business from Rs 50 lakh to Rs 300 crore in just 3 years.

Currently, this small time businessman, whom the Congress party considered a farmer, is in news for the Enforcement Directorate registered a case for money laundering and several other economics offences. Today if anyone says that Robert Vadra’s assets grew from Rs 50 lakh to Rs 300 crore in just 3 years, then he/she will be considered as a BJP IT cell worker. But wait, this revelation was made by none other than the alleged revolutionary leader Arvind Kejriwal in 2012, who claimed that Robert Vadra had done mass corruption in real estate dealings.

Then Kejriwal had said “Robert Vadra acquired properties worth hundreds of crores (of rupees) from nothing. What is the source of these funds”. During the 10 years of Sonia Gandhi led UPA was in power, Robert Vadra witnessed heaven on earth. From getting VVIP treatment in airports to acquiring whichever land he wished for, Robert Vadra showed to the world that he can execute any kind of corruption as he was Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law.

In first big expose was made by daring IAS officer Ashok Khemkha who said that Robert Vadra joined hands with DLF company and “purchased and sold” crores of worth of land illegally. What was surprising is that Robert Vadra was purchasing lands at a lesser value than the market price. This he was doing with the help of money power and muscle power.

Not just that, Robert Vadra had managed to get interest free loans from banks and DLF company. He had extended his business even in the field of receiving kickbacks. His name has popped up in the AgustaWestland scam, which is one of the biggest defence scam in the 21st century. The Enforcement Directorate had stated to the Delhi court that Robert Vadra had purchased a bungalow in London from the kickbacks he received from a petroleum deal that had taken place in the year 2009.

Robert Vadra wants to leave a colorful life just like his brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi. Attending night clubs and parties are a regular affair to him. This alleged poor farmer had married Priyanka Gandhi in the year 1997 and what followed was a tragedy; not to Robert Vadra or the Gandhis, but to the family members of Robert Vadra. In the year Robert Vadra’s father, brother and sister died either by committing suicide or by accidents. Are these accidents or an act of crime?

At present, Robert Vadra owns billions of assets and dozens of companies. Interestingly all are under the radar of the probing agencies. What was another jackpot to him was that his wife Priyanka Vadra Gandhi was appointed as the General Secretary of the Congress party. After all, the Congress party is also a family owned business of the Gandhis.

Some good trends.

Bihar is doing ok for BJP/NDA

Balakot air strikes make big holes in Bihar’s caste politics
Modi's narrative of nationalism blended with welfare is getting a lot of traction in Bihar while the voter is betraying an increasing fatigue with Lalu brand of politics.

https://theprint.in/politics/balakot-ai ... cs/230544/

MP seems to be swinging Lotus again.

Why Modi govt’s Ujjwala scheme will boost BJP’s fortunes in Madhya Pradesh
Modi govt's Ujjwala scheme or 'gas ki tanki' has changed lives, say people across MP, although there are voices of criticism, with some saying refiling cylinders is too expensive.
https://theprint.in/politics/why-modi-g ... sh/230575/

Why in Congress bastion Guna voters talk about all that’s wrong with the party
MP Jyotiraditya Scindia is hugely popular in Guna. But while voters say they will back him, it's Narendra Modi they want to see back as prime minister.
https://theprint.in/politics/why-in-con ... ty/230031/

In Madhya Pradesh poll fight, Rafale is no match for Balakot
Voters view Balakot as a ‘strong’, ‘much-needed’ move, while even Congress supporters are unsure of the Rafale allegations and their impact on elections.
https://theprint.in/politics/in-madhya- ... ot/229493/

Haryana - BJP is seeking to repeat 2014

BJP is looking to get around caste, the pulse of Haryana politics, and win the state
The BJP is once again relying on the strategy it adopted in some of the seats in 2014 — of fielding non-Jats in Jat areas and a non-Brahmin in a Brahmin seat.

Ok have to openly state Google News etc have either been gamed by UPA or been purchased.

Typed in UP BJP and *all* news is from UPA and anti-BJP from usual suspects. I have to dig around via Google search to get any contrary data. Amazing.

Search for BJP, again obvious manipulation

1st Link: Wire on BJP losing 75 seats
2nd: Punjab Congress mocking Sunny Deol
3rd: AAP will be BJP main opponent in Delhi
4th: NDTV article finally with some comment by Modi
5th: Scroll on Sadhvi Pragya, EC banning her from campaigning
6th: Finally some comment on locals support for BJP in Bengal
7th:Wire again, BJP to lose 40 seats in UP etc.

Weak minded idiots may even change their vote.

RW need a parallel social media. This tweeter and fb are not long term solution. RW population in India is huge, vocal and much bigger than lefties. Once RW start using own SM there will be no turning back, these tweeter and fb will be out of business in india in no time. This is need of hour because every year millions of young indian kids are creating first account and they cannot be exposed to these platforms. RW SM should be their first choice of log in.

Anyways continuing my urge to find out what's going on.

BJP may get a few seats in Punjab because of Modi's TINA factor. Ppl still upset at SAD rule & GST issues. BJP welfare schemes are either too less for the relatively richer Punjabi farmer or haven't reached (e.g. Ayushman Bharat)

UP remains the hardest nut to crack.

If AMMK gets more than 10% vote share it will be a headache for AIADMK.

I think AIADMK will pressure centre to hoist some case on TTV and put him behind bars, already Sasikala is being dragged into another jj tv case to extend her stay at in jail.

Anyways.. i think Bihar, MP, are pro BJP for now. Orissa is anyone's guess, and WB the rampant intimidation etc by TMC has not been factored in well by BJP guys (i hope I am wrong), Rajasthan should also do well for BJP given Balakot etc & the perception battle there. Ka will also likely swing BJP in south, and KRS/AP may provide outside support. AP is a tossup between 2 opportunists, an EJ vs one who appeases them. TN will give a handful of seats..
UP remains a mystery, and seat to seat battle will occur. HP would be BJP as will be Mah (SS + BJP will swing it)..NE, I don't know much about the situation there..Punjab a handful of seats, Delhi is a gone case (judging by WA forwards by my Dilli billi classmates, they are still into AAP kool-aid), Haryana has high number of ex servicemen who would appreciate Modi govt natsec policy and less of the Chattisgarh/Punjab crowd on twitter who are INC supporters.

There are some open source efforts that few big indic players can get behind like Baba Ramdev and leverage with not too high of investments. One may be able to run their own instances and customization.

Modi hasn't hoisted cases even on people who deserve it. So there is no question of hoisting cases on anyone in TN at the behest of AIADMK or anyone else. Do you have any proof that Sasikala is being "dragged into" some case because of pressure from the center? Why spread such rumours and give ammunition to usual suspects in SM?

Twitter is being suspiciously Paki. It's perhaps due to money being spent by thungbandhan parties It can be done for Facebook and most other social media platforms too. But to game Google algorithms like this is pretty hard.
Added later: If one creates a new Twitter or Facebook account, then the narrative indeed is Thugbandahan type. It's only after user follows some non-lefty accounts, pages that there is some balance. But by default, these 2 companies are being played by thugbandhan forces. BJP did a good job last time in social media, this time their efforts are not up to mark.

I wouldn't look it that. Running off fb or twitter means you are yielding space. Like it or not, until an alternate ecosystem is built, FB & twitter are the leading news makers.

If RW cannot convince people on incumbent platform, what will they achieve by creating a new one?

What does that prove? ED is following up on its investigation. There is no reason to think this is politically motivated. Or are you suggesting that Sasikala is innocent?

I think I had done a search not logged in on Google. It was snapshot of all the links showing up. All pro-UPA. Could be really great SEO or just that 90% of reports are proUPA, after all its MSMs father and mother..but still wondering.

Priyanka Gandhi enthused like a foreigner by a snake charming act in Rae Bareli (Image credit: ANI)

Old Nehru clan tradition of acting like foreigners in own land.
Image

Modi:"Their fourth generation is also doing the same. They don't know that India is not only about snake charmers now, but it's a country of 'mouse charmers' (in a reference to computer mouse and IT sector)," the prime minister said.

The statement was an apparent attack on Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi who was earlier seen interacting with snake charmers in Raebareli.

Just saw this shared by an Evanjihadi type on Maulana Zuckeruddin's platform.


Exclusive: Ramdev Turns On Modi, Says Note Ban Rs 3-5 Lakh Cr Scam
Baba Ramdev, who was once Narendra Modi’s confidante, isn’t exactly happy with the Prime Minister’s demonetisation move.

Speaking exclusively to The Quint, Baba Ramdev asserted that the Prime Minister was misled by corrupt bankers – and that demonetisation will expose a Rs 3-5 lakh crore scam in the economy.

The implementation has been poor, Baba Ramdev told The Quint at a Dainik Bhaskar event in Jaipur.

While Twitter is obvious suspect, I do not think FB and Google ARE biased naturally. Con Party is taking advantage of well known SEO methods and BJP IT cell is too much inward focused.

1. Part A of strategy: Use your patronage network to create multiple, organized content producers; not just a single large one or many unorganized ones.
a. Just compare the numbers : Wall, Scroll, NewsLaundry, Quint, Caravan, Altnews, Factcheck and many more vs SwarajyaMag and OpIndia. Also all of the BIF content providers are extremely well stuffed with multiple named full time regular professional journalists, not one man part time show like many popular RW twitter handles or bloggers like TrueIndology, Sadguru, Jaggi, Gurumurthy, SuSwamy etc. And blogs, FB and Twitter handles are unorganized, transient and segmented to only their followers vs organized content from these digital media houses available to the entire world and all search engines and web crawlers indefinitely.
b. I am not even considering BIF MSM vs RW MSM. All MSM now a days have huge presence in digital area.
This part A is the key for next level i.e. part B.
2. Part B of the strategy: use multiple overlapping bot armys to cross link all these digital contents coming out of the BIF sources to increase their click counts and page rank.

Just like a group of chillar asean nations used to carry more weight than a behemoth India in any international grouping simply because they have more votes, these comparatively higher volume of organized content and cross linking is ensuring that BIF content is coming on top for any new entrants or fence sitters. Only if a person has a search history clearly favoring RW, the relevant links are coming up.

BJP is way ahead compared to Con alone in terms of content creation and spread. But Con has taken a wolf pack approach to attack the elephant with multiple distributed entities. Due to the inward focus, the BJP IT Cell is behaving exactly like the elephant.

The solution: instead of spending huge amount of time on twitter and FB, the "Chowkidars" should spend at least part of their SM time to create permanent content on regular basis on current political affairs. Does not matter if it is repetitive. In fact more numbers on similar theme without obvious copy, the better.

Please install that Ritam app and then see how much of your conjecture that RW has no content hence the "benevolent" google & its algo is not picking them up holds.
There is already a considerable RW ecosystem in News & opinion as clearly shown in the 72 or so news sources listed in Ritam app.None of them ever turn up if you open Google news yet even AAP & Congie party mouth pieces like JanataKaReporter & NationalHerald are regularly featured giving mere party propaganda the veneer of legit News.
There is plain and simple reason none of RW content shows up in google news >> https://news.google.com
or get featured in editors picks bar or get top down pushed into smartphones in google chrome home tab or google search home screen is because Google is heading the BIF push from Big tech.
Google is the tip of the BIF spear & is the most diabolical of the lot due to its pervasiveness & its relatively benign brand image able to do subtle manipulation as compared to M$ & Apple.
Starting from even its doodles to pervasive leftist bias in its administration to lack of options to block such forcefed BIF content from Wire Scroll Quint Print Caravan NDTV Janatakareporter, Altnews etc.... google is clear in its agenda.
Its saturating the 300 million smartphones in India with such BIF propaganda incessantly.There are zero options to block such content from blasting your eyeballs in a smartphone!
One has to be blind to not perceive that Google is pushing an agenda in Indian Politics & is has openly sided with BIF.

a. Just compare the numbers : Wall, Scroll, NewsLaundry, Quint, Caravan, Altnews, Factcheck and many more vs SwarajyaMag and OpIndia. Also .



We also have MyNation, PGurus, Postcard.News and importantly, India-Aware (an initiative of BRF's own Muns) on our side. I follow them all daily apart from Swarajya and Opindia. If not many people are aware of these other PIF platforms, maybe a good place to start is by popularizing them, linking articles/videos from them on Twitter/Facebook/WhatsApp.

Yes the other side is still better funded and outnumbers us, but the equilibrium can be shifted, and all of us can help.

Exclusive: Ramdev Turns On Modi, Says Note Ban Rs 3-5 Lakh Cr Scam


I don't think he is entirely wrong. Yes, implementation was neither smooth nor full proof. Many corrupt bankers did make lots of money but not sure how much. Rs 3-5 Lakh Cr may be just a number from his hat. At the same time there is no denying that Modi's intention was good and it did achieve some of the intended goals.

That number most certainly is from his hat considering he hasn't mentioned any source for it. How would he know anyway?

That news of Baba Ramdev criticizing DeMo is almost 3 years old from the demonetization period.If bankers really made so much money there would have been several stings in presstitute media to target Modi - the fact is bankers who tried to acted as agents are being repeatedly booked by CBI even in 2018 as money has left permanent trails.The data gathered during DeMo is being mined by IT officials more they keep getting arrested .

Ramdev's patanjali expansion was hurt(it flatlined in 2017 from exponential growth previous years) by the formalization of economy & the shrinkage of informal sector entailed by both GST & DeMo.So was giving barbs then - which were twisted and projected as Anti BJP barbs by presstitutes like Quint.
Now all is well and he again openly supports BJP.

It will be a huge win if NDA gets 13 in TN. I am very skeptical.


This was Spick Media's projection. Not after the polls.

Congress has planned some "explosive" press conference on Rafale tomorrow. Maybe to divert attention from Pappu/Piggy's recent "vote katua" self goals



What explosive press conference.

Explosive and Congress don't belong in the Same sentence.

Maybe RaGa found a BakPak from ISIS operative Abdul Al Hind and is going to demonstrate the working of a Hindootva bum "live" on national TV?
(sorry, just hoping). Maybe he will show how he can stop the Samjhauta Express by fa*ting at it.

Tweet by @urviMD :
So Rahul Gandhi who was chest bumping and darring Narendra Modi for live debate has chickened out on broadcasting his own interview.

And now allegedly Congress puts iron hand banning Yuvraj's disastrous interview.
