REAL STORY OF
Late DHIRUBHAI AMBANI of Reliance
Editorial : RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LIMITED
- WHERE IS ACCOUNTABILITY?
Dear mukesh & anil ambani,
The reliance industries has always got a favourable treatment from the state
& central governments.there are allegations that ,
1.years ago, the central government gave import concessions for import of
certain raw materials of textile sector ,which hugely benefitted the P.F.Y
& TEXTILE projects of your's ie reliance industries.
2.the O.N.G.C which has painstakingly surveyed the oil & gas reserves &
prepared a list of lists,gave that list & you got godavari basin oil &
gas project from the government .O.N.G.C could have developed it & earned
3.few months back you were charged both by the government & cellular
operators (GSM) that you are giving S.T.D & ROAMING FACILITIES to your
reliance phone subscribers.your's was only a W.L.L. they even claimed that you
are misusing a legal loophole & causing crores of losses to the government
& other GSM operators. however while the issue was before the T.R.A.I, the
trai legalized your actions by announcing unified licence for telecom
4.now you are charged by the government of re-routing ISD CALLS as local
calls,thereby causing crores of losses to the government & BSNL.this time
also you may get the reprieve from the government. the government ,if a
commonman does not pay his electric bills in time slaps interest & cuts
down the electric supply immediately. however the same government ,even if your
company has been alleged of causing crores of rupees losses to the government
& other players, always enacts favourable laws for you like a SANTA CLAUS.
WILL YOU PLEASE CLARIFY mr.mukesh ambani & mr.anil ambani?
the TRAI announced unified licence regime in haste that too with retrospective
effects.so all the charges against reliance were dropped. in the same vein as
unified licence got retrospective effect , why not the government re-imburse
the differece amount out of hefty fees collected from other cellular operators
? take the reliance fees as bench mark.anyway , finally commonman is the
looser. Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.
Assasination - Unanswered questions
Rajiv Gandhi assasination - leaves many unanswered questions -
Unsolved puzzles. For whom did Rajiv Gandhi got assisinated ? Sudhangan raised
various questions which didn't get answers till 2009. Here are those
questions that are unanswered:
1) On 21 -May-1991 Rajiv gandhi started from Delhi for
election campaign and reached Chennai through the route Orissa and Andra
Pradesh. How did he accepted that midnight meeting at Sriperambuthur which
was not in the agenda of TamilNadu Congress committe. ?
2) Is there any plan made somewhere to bring Rajiv Gandhi to
Sriperambathur some how ?
3) The Security official Mr O.P.Sagar was there with Rajiv Gandhi
when he campaigned at Bhubaneshwar and Vishakapattinam. But he didnt come to
chennai along with Rajiv. Why ?
4) Bulgarian television journalists came along with Rajiv during
his visits to record his campaigns. They were with Rajiv in Orissa and Andha
Predesh but didnt come for the next meeting. They stayed in a luxary hotel at
Vishakapatinam along with their special flight pilot. In that case why did they
5) When Rajiv was about to start, there was a problem in the
flight. So he went back to circuit house from the airport. After the problem in
flight got fixed, the chief minister of Andha Pradesh Mr.VijayaBhaskar Reddy
informed Rajiv to get back to airport and Rajiv went to airport. During this
time the two Bulgerian journalists took the security official Sagar along in
their car and arrived at airport late. So the security official could not go
along with Rajiv gandhi. Why did such an experienced security official was made
not to travel with Rajiv ?
6) The security official of Rajiv at chennai P.C.Gupta was
waiting at chennai airport for Rajiv. P.C.Gupts is suppose to get the gun
from Sagar who was expected along with Rajiv. Since Sagar has not come along
with Rajiv, P.C.Gupta was made to go with Rajiv without gun. Is there any
intenton behind this ?
7) When Rajiv started from Meenambakkam, two ladies claiming
as journalists got inside his car at Ramavaram. Did their
identities verified ? Why did the special investigation branch didnt
enquire on them ?
8) Who are the Bulgarian journalists ? Where did they went ?
9) Who are those two lady journalists ? Where did they went
10) Those two lady journalists interviewed Rajiv Gandhi. But
TamilNadu political party people, Tha. Pandiyan and Maragatham Chandrasekar
were telling they didnt know what Rajiv spoke with the journalists. What
are the hiding ?
11) Just one hour before his murder, Rajiv told it was CIA that
killed the pakistan president Zia-ul-Haq. Why shoud he tell that ? What
made him to tell that ? Did he know if there is some plan like that against him
12) July-1991 - The central home minister S.P.Chawan made a
statement that apart from LTTE there are other international organizations and
powerful external forces involved in the background of Rajiv's murder. Who are
they referred here ?
13) Why didn't the special investination branch enquire on the
above home minister's statement ?
14) During the gulf war India helped fueling US aircrafts.
Rajiv gandhi seriously condemmed this help which was done by primie minister Mr
Chandrasekar during that time. Why didnt the special investigation branch
enquire on CIA's hands on this murder, as US was not happy with Rajiv for the
above reason ?
15) Palestinian National Authority president, Mr. Yasser Arafat
informed to the indian prime minister during the time Mr .Chandrasekar that
'Rajiv Gandhi's life is under threat'. From where did Arafat got this
information ? Who is threatening Rajiv ? Why did special investigation branch
didnt enquire on this ?
16) Arafat could have got this information if the
assasination was planned at western Europe or middle eastern countries.
Why is this not probed ?
17) Maragatham Chandrasekar came to attend that meeting with
Rajiv Gandhi. Her daughter, Latha Priyakumar came with her husband and advocate
Mahendran from Arakonam. But it was unknown from where did her son Lalith
Chandrasekar and his wife Vinothini came from. Though it is known that
Vinothini is daughter of Jayavarthane from Sri Lanka, they didn't enquire on
her. Infact they didnt enquire their family who was there at the meeting. why ?
18) Sivarasan's mother and Vinothini's father are sinhalas
from Sri Lanka who were present at the incident. It is possible that they were
sent by Sri Lankan president Premadasa as messangers. Premadasa is not
happy with Rajiv on sending the Indian peace keeping force (IPKF) to Sri Lanka.
Why was the investigation not done in that angle ? ( Also we should note here a
Sinhala Sri Lankan army person hit Rajiv Gandhi with a gun during his visit to
Sri Lanka )
19) Both LTTE and Sri Lanka hate Rajiv gandhi as he is the
reaon for sending Indian peace keeping force (IPKF) to Sri Lanka.
Advocate Mr Chandrasekar challenged special investigation branch that, if they
could prove Vinothini and her family are innocent then those who did the crime
will accept it on their own. But the special investination didnt accept his
challence and not enquired those who is related on this. why ?
20) Kamini Disanayaka, Athulath Muthali, Wickramasinghe are prominant
politicians in Sri Lanka. When all those people are murdered president
Premadasa was pointed. Why did't the investigation didnt happen in this
21) Why dont Sivarasan, Dhanu and Subha did this murder due to
pressure from external forces. Just because they are Tamils from yarlpanam, did
the investigators linked them with LTTE and closed the case ?
22) What is the strong evidence that links LTTE and its head
Prabhakaran to Rajiv's assasination case. ?
23) What is the proof that Srivarasan spoke to Prabhakaran
thro a radio. Why is this not an assumption ?
24) It is very much possible that politicians within the congress
could have considered Rajiv Gandhi is blocking their development within the
party and could have hired some group to assasinate Rajiv. This motivation
cannot be denied.
25) Various international business people specifically those
selling weapons would have been in contact with Rajiv as a prime minister. They
could have hired the assasinators to do this murder. Did investigators probed
26) What if Sri Lanka did this, thinking India might send
the Indian peace keeping force again to their country and didnt like a strong
leader emerging from India ?
27) CIA always had interest in erradicating leaders in all third
world countries. Did the same kind of interest got applied on Rajiv ?
28) Rajiv Gandhi is the only leader who prevents the other
prominant political party in India BJP to get into power. It is possible that
the indian parties like BJP and RSS could have used the 'Hindu
favourable' LTTE and Sri Lankan tamils to do this assasination.
29) When other major Congress party members in Tamilnadu like
Vazhapaadi and Moopanar didnt take interest in getting Rajiv to this meeting,
Maragatham Chandrasekar traveled to Delhi and forced Rajiv to come for this
meeting at Sriperambuthur. Is that without her knowledge she become one
reason for Rajiv's murder ?
30 ) Who is Pottu Amaan ? Is there a person like that ? LTTE
says there was a senior person by name Amaan who died war and the only person
there is Pottu. How did the special investigation branch stamped someone who is
not alive as second criminal in this case ?
31) There are many parallels between the murder of
Padmanabha and that of Rajiv Gandhi. Padmanabha's murder was investigaed by
TamilNadu queue branch police and Rajiv Gandhi's murder was investigated by
special investigation branch. Both the investigators are telling the murder was
planned at Yarlpanam, Sri Lanka. Sivaraasan was identified as the prime
criminal in both the Padmanabha's case as well as Rajiv' case. Prabhakaran was
considered criminal in Rajiv's assasination case bur was not in Padmanabha's
case. How come ? It shows adding Prabhakaran's name came out of political
decision rather than that came out from investigations. It is clearly an effort
taken by special investigation branch to to give life to their case
32) A famous Sri Lankan tamil poet Kasi. Anandan met Rajiv at the
airport. What message did he got from Prabhakaran to Rajiv gandhi ?
If Prabhakaran seeked Rajiv's help in the freedom struggle of Tamil Eelam
through Kasi Anandan, why would Prabhakaran murder Rajiv Gandhi ?
33) Prabhakaran knows it is from India and TamilNadu that he can
get support and sympathy. Did Prabhakaran done such a foollish activity by
killing Rajiv, to loose all the support of Indians and also get the
organization banned ?
34) Latha Kannan stopped Rajiv and read a poetry for him.
That enabled Dhanu, a suside bomber standing next to her, to burst the
bomb. Why is her name is not included in the criminals list ? Dhanu used
only Latha kannan to get inside. When HariBabu who got killed in the blast got
included in the criminal's list why not Latha Kannan ? Why is special
investigation branch showing softness towards congress members ?
35) Before getting to SriPambuthur, Rajiv spoke at two roadside
gatherings. Vazhapaadi Ramamurthy, the TamilNadu congress leader was with him
in those two places. But at Sri Perambuthur meeting he was standing very far
from Rajiv. Why so ?
36) Many innocent people and security personnels died along with
Rajiv Gandhi. But nothing happened to any of the congress party members not
even minor injury. How ?
37) It was believed that Latha Kumar who brought Sivarasan, Dhanu
and Subha to SriPerambuthur. She took them specifically to ladies section and
told Latha Kannan to take care of them. But Latha Kumar's name is not in the
criminal's list. Why ?
38) How can we say Prabhakaran is involved just based on an old
photograph of Sivarasan with Prabhakaran ?
39) Why is it not possible that Sivarasan, Dhanu and Subha are
expelled from LTTE and they have been hired by western, European, Middle East
or India as professional assasinators.
40) Ranganathan confessed that it was based on request by Margret
Alva that he gave his house at Bangalore for rent to Sivarasan. Did they
enquired how far this is true ?
41) Is there any investigation done on involvement of Chandra
Swami, Subramanyam Swamy , Chandrasekar and arms business person Kasoki in this
42) What kind of benifit LTTE get by murdering Rajiv Gandhi
? Did super powers like US helped them by arms through CIA ?
43) Why do we need CBI & Special Investigation branch
which find few people they prefer to get the reports ?
Unless all these confusions are clarified, the real culprit will
be hiding behind some powerful forces.
the helm are protecting Rajiv murder accused'
Former Central Bureau of
Investigation's former chief investigating officer K Ragothaman has
claimed in a recently published book -- Conspiracy to kill Rajiv: From CBI
files – that a lot of facts pertaining to the former prime minister's
assassination were either suppressed, or were studiously ignored.
Ragothamam writes that there were
attempts made to protect the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam from being called
the conspirators behind Rajiv's killing. In this interview with rediff.com's Vicky Nanjappa,
Ragothaman speaks about the conspiracy and the hurdles that were faced in a
probe in which many aspects were hushed up.
How has your book been received?
That is too early to tell. It is just
out, but is under debate. Let us wait and watch.
You write that Dravida Munetra Kazhagam
chief M Karunanidhi's [ Images ] scheduled public meeting in Sriperumbudur on May
21, 1991, the day Rajiv was killed, was abruptly cancelled.
Karunanidhi was to address a
meeting at 6'O clock that evening, two hours before Rajiv's meeting. The police
had made all arrangements. Then there was a telegram from the Anna Arivalyam
postal office jurisdiction that the meeting was cancelled.
I probed the sender of that telegram. I
was told to ask Karunanidhi about the same. However, I could not investigate
him directly. Later, I was told by my superiors that the matter was being looked
into, and I should remain quiet.
I was also told that it was a director
general of police, Rangaswamy, who had advised that the meeting be cancelled.
However, when I looked at the Rangaswamy affidavit, it read that he had ordered
as much police force as possible in view of this meeting.
I also attended the Jain commission
inquiry in which Karunanidhi was examined. He had said then that it was the
then governor, Bhishma Narayan Singh, who had told him to cancel the meeting.
Look at the contradictions.
Who according to you was the one who
advised cancellation of the Karunanidhi meeting?
Probably it was Marumalarchi Dravida
Munetra Kazhagam leader Vaiko who telephoned and sought cancellation of the
meeting. The telephone records needed to be examined, but it was never done.
Why do you think Vaiko tried to stop
After Rajiv's assassination, many DMK
workers were attacked, their offices burnt. If Karunanidhi had gone there, he
would have been in trouble and there would have been an onslaught. Hence, they
were trying to protect him.
Does this mean even Karunanidhi was
part of the plot?
No, that is not what I meant.
Karunanidhi is not a killer. He wanted a democratic solution to the problem and
this was never liked by slain LTTE [ Images
] chief Prabhakaran.
You accuse Vaiko of having a hand in
this entire issue.
Vaiko was the one who spoke vehemently
against the Indo-Jaffna accord. Vaiko said at that time he was first an LTTE,
then a Tamilian and then an Indian. At the time of the accord, Prabhakaran was
brought down to New Delhi [ Images
] and was put up at the Hotel Ashoka.
Vaiko sought to meet him, but he was
not allowed to do so. He conversed with Prabhakaran on the intercom, during
which the latter told him, "Anna, this Rajiv has betrayed me. I
feel like committing suicide as he is sealing my fate. But I cannot kill myself
as I need to fight for my people."
Vaiko wrote a book later in which he
mentions that Prabakaran had thought of committing suicide.
Tell us more, sir…
When Vaiko had gone to Sri Lanka [ Images
], we had secured a videotape titled Inside a Tiger's Cave which has him
on tape. There he spoke everything that was anti-Rajiv. It appeared that he was
more against Rajiv than Prabakaran himself. This was also a point noted during
Then there is also a meeting in which
Vaiko says that Rajiv won't go back alive from Tamil Nadu. He, however,
retracted that statement. During the investigation, we questioned one Chinna
who is on death row.
He said that in one of the hideouts,
Sivarasan (the prime accused in the assassination) held talks with one Srinivas
Ayya and said that after the successful completion of the mission, they should
ensure that Vaiko becomes the chief minister of Tamil Nadu.
Why was the evidence not used then?
This is a question that I have been
asking. We had so much evidence, but surprisingly Vaiko was roped in as
prosecution witness number 250 in the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities
During the trial, he denied speaking
all of which was on video with Prabhakaran. The video was played out. He
claimed that it was him in the video but the voice was not his. It was sent for
examination and the voice too was confirmed, but till date there is no perjury
case against him.
You have alleged that even the
Intelligence Bureau and the Research and Analysis Wing tried to cover up LTTE's
After the assassination,
Chandrashekhar, the then prime minister, convened a meeting in which even
Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy (then minister of commerce and
industry) was present. The then IB chief, MK Narayanan, and RAW boss, GS
Bajpai, were also present.
Swamy said that it was obvious that the
LTTE was responsible. Bajpai retorted that it was not the LTTE. The meeting was
adjourned. Meanwhile, the CBI director had gone to Colombo for the
They were called back and rushed to
Delhi for the meeting. During the meeting, it was again asked why a trip was
made to Colombo and did that mean it was preconceived that it was the LTTE
which was behind the assassination.
Bajpai once again opposed this. He even
quoted one Kittu to be his source. Kittu, incidentally, was Prabhakaran's right
hand man. An LTTE man could never have been a RAW mole and even Dr Swamy had
termed this as absurd.
What are your allegations against
A video taken at the meeting on that
ill-fated day in which there were images of Dhanu was never made available to
the CBI. The assassination team was waiting for nearly two hours in a sterile
area. The original video reached Narayanan.
The government had decided to conduct
an investigation in this regard and this case was registered with the Special
Investigating Team and the CBI. However, it was buried. My question is, why no
action has been taken for suppressing evidence.
It was being said that Dhanu had barged
into the meeting, but this video clearly shows that they were waiting for a
long time. We probed this case risking our own lives and it does upset me that
people sitting at the helm of affairs are protecting the accused.
Do you think the loopholes will be
Let us see.
Covering up Late PM Rajiv Gandhi Assassination
conspiracy & BOFORS SCAM
& GOI is more interested in favoring accused persons ,
Quattrochi & closing BOFORS Case than punishing the guilty.
GOI & investigating authorities have failed to punish the real master
minds behind the Late Prime minister Shri . Rajiv Gandhi assassination case .
a responsible Indian citizen volunteered to appear before the supreme court of
india as an amicus curie , to give certain information before the court
relating to this assassination , he was not at all permitted. Instead he was
threatened , attempts made to murder him , his news paper was closed , his jobs
were illegally snatched away , police & investigating agencies repeatedly
grilled him , THE PURPOSE IS TO SILENCE THAT PERSON . The Police failed
to act upon his complaints. The Supreme Court of India Failed to admit his PIL
Petitions. ALL TO COVER UP THE POWERS THAT BE .
covering-up late p.m. rajiv gandhi assassination case? who are those
conspirators? who are trying to silence me?
My sufferings began hand in hand with my crusade. I have raised various issues
of social concern from time to time at the appropriate levels, one of those is
LATE P.M. RAJIV GANDHI ASASSINATION CASE. where-in only the tools of the
conspirator's were punished where as the conspirators are roaming free. i have
raised this topic of inequity , travesty of justice and sought a fair, proper
enquiry& trial , at various forums. but to no avail.
the conspirators were disturbed by this and tried to silence me by threatening
me, physically assaulting me and even made attempts to murder me. they
prevented me from appearing before the JAIN COMMISSION OF ENQUIRY. they even
manipulated the recruitment systems to deny me the appointments in
R.B.I.CURRENCY NOTE PRESS MYSORE, P.E.S. COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING MANDYA, N.I.E
MYSORE , District Court Mysore & Illegally snatched away my job in RPG
Cables Ltd , Mysore . they even tried to silence me by forcibly closing
down my newspaper publications THE TESTUDO & VOICE OF CRUSADER.
my appeals for justice resulted only in police enquiries. the central
intelligence bureau(I.B.) state intelligence & state police personnel
enquired me exhaustively number of times, but they never did enquire the powers
that be. any way these people don't have practical powers to enquire such
people. the highest constitutional functionaries who can order a proper
enquiry, trial are keeping mum inspite of repeated appeals. probably they are
acting under the directions of conspirators. thereby they are not only covering
up the crime, they are actively sponsoring terrorism , but are also violating
my fundamental/human rights & obstructing me from performing my fundamental
duties as a citizen of india.
latest: Reliance blackmailing govt, Mukesh Ambani running India
NEW DELHI: S Jaipal Reddy
was axed as petroleum minister for refusing a Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance
Industries' proposal to hike charges of gas it supplied to state-run power
plants, India Against Corruption's Arvind Kejriwal
charged on Wednesday, demanding that the Krishna Godavari basin allotted to the
company be taken back.
"Mukesh Ambani is running the country it seems," Kejriwal told the
media here. "Jaipal Reddy was removed as he refused to hike the charges
levied by Reliance Industries to supply gas to the NTPC (National Thermal Power
Reliance called the charges "irresponsible".
According to Kejriwal, the KG basin was
awarded to Reliance in 2000 by the NDA government when the company agreed to
supply gas to the NTPC for the next 17 years at $2.34 per unit.
But, said Kejriwal, the company revised the rate to $4.25 per unit in 2007
which then finance minister Pranab Mukherjee agreed to as the head of an
empowered group of ministers.
"The entire contract was meant to benefit Reliance because ... the cost
would be determined by the company, and if the cost increases, so will the
profit," he said, adding this was unheard of in business.
The company, he said, revised the rate to $4.2 per unit in 2007, which then
finance minister Pranab Mukherjee agreed to as head of an empowered group of
ministers, benefiting Reliance to the tune of Rs.10,000 crore.
Kejriwal alleged that in 2006 then petroleum minister Mani Shankar Iyer was
removed and Murli Deora brought in to increase Reliance Industries' capital
expenditure from $2.39 billion to $8.8 billion, and to hike gas price from
$2.34 per unit to $4.2 per unit.
Later, the company wanted the rate further hiked to $14.2. Jaipal Reddy, who
reportedly did not agree to the proposal, was shunted out in Sunday's cabinet
rejig, said the activist-politician.
Kejriwal released to the media a "secret" document of the petroleum
ministry that said that accepting the Reliance demand would generate for it
an additional profit of Rs 43,000 crore ($8.5 billion).
"In order to pressurize the government, RIL substantially reduced its
production of natural gas," a statement from India
Against Corruption said.
"Production has been artificially kept low to blackmail the government.
They are not just hoarding the gas but also forcing various consumers to buy
gas from abroad."
When Reliance sought Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's intervention, he asked the
attorney general to find out if the gas prices should be hiked or not.
"Why did the PM not show similar concern when NTPC was forced to accept
higher gas price from RIL? Why is the PM not pulling up Reliance for not
producing gas as per their commitment? Why did the PM not seek legal opinion
when the country's interests were at stake?"
Kejriwal, who was flanked by fellow activists Prashant Bhushan and Manish
Sisodia, demanded that Reliance Industries' "blackmailing" should be
"Their KG Basin contract should be cancelled. The government should
immediately put in place adequate systems to get full production from KG Basin
at the cheapest price for the country."
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) asked the prime minister to respond to IAC and
explain why Jaipal Reddy was dropped from the petroleum ministry.
"Is it any malfunction in the ministry that has persuaded Manmohan Singh
to effect this change? Or is that Jaipal Reddy was not found a 'convenient'
minister? Or is this another example of corporate interests taking precedence
over national good?" BJP leader Jaswant Singh asked.
After taking on Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law
Robert Vadra and BJP president Nitin Gadkari, anti-corruption
activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday charged Mukesh Ambani,
India's richest man and chairman of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), with
The allegations pertain to RIL's D-6 block in
the Krishna Godavari (KG) basin, India's largest gas producing field off the
eastern coast in Andhra Pradesh, which is being jointly developed by RIL and
its partners, Britain's BP and Canadian firm Niko Resources.
Kejriwal and his colleague, lawyer Prashant
Bhushan, termed the deal a "classic case of crony capitalism" and
said both the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and Congress-led UPA
(United Progressive Alliance) governments were responsible for RIL getting this
The contract, signed in 2000 by the then NDA
government, according to Kejriwal, would rob the national exchequer of revenues
to the tune of Rs. 45,000 crore if RIL's demands
for a higher price for its gas were met.
The government has not decided yet on a
demand by RIL to raise the price of gas from the field to $14.25 per unit from
$4.25, the subject of a long-running controversy.
In a brief statement, RIL dismissed the charges
as being "devoid of any truth or substance".
"Irresponsible allegations made by IAC
at the behest of vested interests without basic understanding of the
complexities of a project of this nature do not merit a response," it
Petroleum minister Veerappa Moily refused to
"I have better things to do," he
"I don't want to respond."
The press conference also witnessed high
drama when a Congress worker wanted to question Kejriwal,
but was heckled by camerapersons and IAC volunteers, and forced to leave the
Kejriwal based his attack on the government
and RIL on the so-called 'Radia tapes', a collection of phone taps from between
2007 and 2009 in one of which someone thought to be former prime minister Atal
Behari Vajpayee's son-in-law Ranjan Bhattacharya is heard telling RIL and Tata
Group's corporate lobbyist Niira Radia that Ambani had told him that "Congress to apni dukaan hai".
The unearthing of the Radia tapes had
triggered accusations of corporate influence in the distribution of ministers'
portfolios in the UPA's second term.
On Wednesday, Kejriwal gave this accusation fresh
legs by linking Jaipal Reddy's removal from the petroleum ministry on Sunday to
his run-ins with RIL over the pricing of gas.
He also gave a populist spin to his
allegations by linking the government's restriction on the supply of cheap LPG
cylinders to the public to the high profits being allowed to RIL.
"We want to know why the PM's heart
beats only for RIL. Why did he not seek the attorney general's opinion when
NTPC was not getting gas at cheap rates?" Kejriwal said.
State-run National Thermal Power Corporation
(NTPC) had sought cheaper gas to fire its power plants.
* In 2006, Mani Shankar Iyer was removed and
Murli Deora brought in to increase RIL capex from $ 2.39 billion to $ 8.8
billion and to increase gas price from $2.34 per mmBTU to $ 4.2 per mmBTU
* In 2012, Jaipal Reddy has been removed and
Moily brought in to increase gas prices from $ 4.2 per mmBTU to $ 14.2 mmBTU
and to condone RIL’s blackmailing of reducing gas production
* Both BJP and Congress involved. BJP signed
a sweet deal with RIL in 2000. Congress faithfully implemented it
* If RIL demand of increasing the gas price
to $ 14.2 is accepted, it would lead to shut down of several gas based power
plants and increase in power and fertilizer prices
* By this deal, RIL would benefit by an
additional Rs. 43,000 crore
* In Nira Radiia tapes, Ranjan Bhattacharya
(Vajpayee’s son in law) is heard telling Nira that Mukesh Ambani told him
–“Congress to ab apni dukaan hai”
* Huge benefits given to RIL in last one
decade despite flagrant violations of various agreements by RIL. Benefits to
RIL causing serious price rise in the country.
* "In order to pressurize the
government, RIL substantially reduced its production of natural gas. Total
consumption of natural gas in the country is 156 mmscmd. According to
agreement, RIL was supposed to produce 80mmscmd (more than 50% of the total
demand) from 2009."
* "RIL got this contract during NDA
regime in the year 2000. The contract was meant to favor RIL right from the
beginning. In any business, increase in costs means decrease in profits."
The IAC press release alleged that
performance of RIL so far has been much worse than perhaps the worst performing
1. 4 times cost escalation within 2 years
from $ 2.39 billion in 2004 to $ 8.8 billion in 2006.
2. Increase in gas price from $ 2.34 per mmBTU in 2004 to $ 4.2 per mmBTU in
2007 to the present demand of $ 14.2 per mmBTU.
3. Capacity created for producing 80 mmscmd after incurring such a huge cost
ends up producing just 27 mmscmd after 12 years.
4. 31 oil wells should have been in production till now. Out of them, just 13
Kejriwal and lawyer Prashant Bhushan, a
leading member of IAC, alleged the allocation of KG Basin to Reliance is on
similar lines as coal block allocation scam. They alleged both Congress and BJP
were in 'Ambani's pocket'.
MONEY – PARLIAMENTARY ACTS/LEGISLATIONS FOR
-improper functioning of democracy in india
committee report has proved the criminalisation of politics in india. There are
many number of criminals in the parliament & state legislatures. Some of
those criminals are cabinet ministers as well as members of vital parliamentary
committees. Thereby, they are in a position to manipulate , enact laws
favouring , benefitting the criminals their cronies.
Just see how the GOI gave export incentive of Rs.1800 crore to reliance
petroleum although it didn't even export a barrel. Reliance infocom & tata
teleservices were CDMA mobile service providers & have paid license fee of
few crores only equal to landline fees without any competitive bidding . They
were supposed to provide mobile service to operate like fixed phones within a
radius of 40k.m. however they were providing service like mobile service from
one state to another like GSM mobile service providers. By this act of RIC
& TTSL , the GSM providers who have paid thousands of license fee in
competitive bidding were economically hurt , the dispute went to court. The
court was on the verge of pronouncing it's verdict awarding damages worth
Rs.18000 crore to GSM players & Rs. 3000 crore of license fees with penalty
to GOI. The government announced a unified telecom license regime with
retrospective effect. Thereby, the GOI lost thousands of crores of rupees &
the share holders of GSM players lost thousands of crores. Onceagain the RIC
was charged by PSU bsnl THAT RELIANCE IS RE-ROUTING INTERNATIONAL CALLS AS
LOCAL CALLS & SWINDLING THE GOI. This time too, GOI bailed it out. during
the dispute between ambani brothers the younger ambani mr. Anil ambani director
of reliance himself has stated that for the favours received from the GOI , the
company gifted some shares to then IT & COMMUNICATIONS MINISTER mr. Pramod
Various indian & multinational companies are looting indian exchequer to
the tune of thousands of crores of rupees , through lobbying / bribing.
In india, indirect democracy is the form of governance. In this form, people's
representatives are bound to raise the questions , issues concerning their
constituents on their behalf , on the floor of the house. However the sad part
in india even after 58 years of democracy , is the lobbying is at it's peak.
The lobbying is a gentleman's white collared crook's way of forming favour
seeker's group , creating a corpus to pay lumpsum bribe & influencing
decision making. The people's representatives are bound to represent their
people first , then their party & party think tanks. India has come to this
sorry state of affairs , widespread corruption , huge black economy &
rampant poverty, all due to inefficient legislations & enforcements. These
think tanks & IAS lobby, consider themselves as most super brains on earth
& gives out suggestions . the present state of affairs is a barometer of
their brilliance. These think tanks & IAS lobby are the hand maidens of
lobbyists / bribers.
REAL STORY OF
Late DHIRUBHAI AMBANI of Reliance
Another Major Scam : Govt. Favours Reliance In KG
The CAG draft report that nails the connivance between
Government agencies and Reliance Industries Ltd. leading to huge losses to the
Government exchequer is yet another example of the power of corporates in the
UPA Government to subvert rules and regulations in their favour.
The CAG has noted
that the former Director-General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) permitted Reliance to
inflate its “development costs” on the gas extraction in the D6 block of KG basin
from 2.47 billion dollars to a whopping 8.84 billion dollars. This money taken
by RIL affected the revenues of the Government. Government should prosecute the
former DGH without any delay.
connivance with RIL has a direct impact on the aam aadmi because increased
claims of development cost get reflected in the price of gas given to consumers
and also affect the prices of fertilizer and power. Letters have been
written to the Prime Minister to institute an independent enquiry into the complaint
of artificial jacking up of the capital expenditure by RIL for D6 KG Basin and
its hasty approval by the concerned authority to find out the actual cost
before gas price is fixed.
In a repeat of the
2-G scam, the Prime Minister’s silence on the issue, has again exposed
the UPA Government’s acquiescence to corporate manipulation.
