A Chennai based company which is partly owned by the Home Minister, P Chidambaram’s son, Karti, has decided to sue Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy for defamation. Swamy had publicly accused that Karti who owns a large part of a company had benefited in 2006 from his father’s position as Finance Minister to earn huge profits during the sale of telecom Aircel.
Still,what is the fate of Mayawati’s ‘Symbol of Pride’, after being declared to remain unhurt, by SP ?
15th March 2012, Akhilesh Yadav took the oath and now he is the Chief-Minister of nation’s biggest state. This reminds of him announcing on September 25th 2011 that Mayawati’s statues , both of herself and mostly of her Elephants (party symbol), would be demolished once the SP comes to power and when SP actually won with majority , he also announced , BSP symbol statues and Mayawati statues would remain unhurt. He showed his generosity and in a way he can always remind the proud Supremo of BSP,Mayawati, of SP’s rule, by letting the statues remain the way they are,literally! Again it is his choice how he wishes to treat those ‘Mayawati symbols of pride’ but surely he may not provide the statues with facilities of security -guards.When the state was dying with lack of food and jobs , the former CM managed to spend multi-crores in installing her symbols of pride and what is the fate of those symbols , now that her reign is over,is up to the ruling party SP. Will the statues, like all other statues of the nation,suffer from bird attacks ?
The analysis by Association for Democratic Reforms and National Election Watch reveals 35 % of the total 690 MLAs elected in 5 state-elections (Uttar Pradesh,Punjab,Manipur,Uttarakhand and Goa) have past criminal records of which obviously and as expected Uttar Pradesh tops the list and also 66% of the 690 MLAs are multi-millionaires !
Samajwadi Party’s Mitra Sen winning from Bikapur seat topped the list of MLAs with 36 criminal cases and Nawab Kazim Ali Khan of Congress from Suar constituency topped the list of crorepatis with a declared total assets worth Rs 56.89 crore and is raced by Shah Alam of BSP from Mubarakpur with assets worth Rs 54.44 crores.
Manipur is the only state where no candidates have any pending criminal case against their names!
It is tough to believe that our nation is run by goon turned political leaders, so much in number and yet we expect corruption to be abolished from the society. These informations should be made public in all constituencies prior to elections , probably only then we would be able to elect the right candidate to represent us as the leader!
Disproportionate Assets Case has led former Mumbai Congress President face arrest.The Special Investigation Team in Mumbai seized his properties including a bungalow, seven flats and about hundred acres of land. Properties on the name of relatives are also being doubted by media.
Kripashankar Singh is an example of rags to riches , as when he came to Mumbai from Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, he used to sell vegetables and now he stands being accused of owning multi-crore assets in the same city ! He was also being criticized for misguiding representation of his academic qualification and astonishingly for holding two Pan Numbers, in the past.
Well, may be he is innocent and he really worked hard to achieve multi-crore dynasty by selling vegetables but quite contrary to this is a fact that Maharashtra is one of the states where farmers in the past were forced to take their own lives due to poverty. How come the same vegetable reseller ended up making such huge profits ? Guess that’s why we say ‘This Happens Only In India!’
Country’s richest civic body, BMC, may soon feel the prominent presence of the underworld inside its official premises. BMC controls many land related sanctions which decides real estate deals in India’s financial capital,Mumbai. Real-State being a multibillion dollar industry in Mumbai, political parties are issuing party tickets to the aides of dons or their relatives just to secure space in BMC elections.
Soban Parwin fighting on a Samjwadi Party ticket is the nephew of Tareeq Parwin, once a close associate of Dawood. The Republican Party self-praising upholder of Ambedkars ideals and claiming Buddhist influence is the chosen party for Chotta Rajan’s sister Sunita Chavan and nephew Satish. Previously, Arun Gawli, a well-known gangster split from Shiv Sena to make his own party and now he being in jail , his office is handled by Geeta Gawli, his daughter.
Entry of Muscle Power is no news in Indian politics. Deadlier is the entry of Underworld-The Corporate Anti-Social Group. It is not one man but a group of well-organized, filthy rich and socially influential people who wish to replace politicians(whom they might be bribing) to take direct control.
It is pity that India does not have any lawful and constitutional mechanism yet to stop such intrusions into politics of the country.
Election Commission officials have seized over 79 lakh litres of Indian Made Foreign Liquor during this poll campaign in Punjab. Nearly 3,60,000 bottles of country liquor were confiscated before being distributed to the voters. Another 63,000 litres of illegally distilled liquor has been seized.
Previously, 183 cartons of alcohol were seized from a truck in Akali Dal candidate Bibi Jagir Kaur’s constituency and hence she is booked for bribing voters. Another Akali Dal candidate, Swaroop Singla, also landed in trouble after organising a party for more than 200 people in a resort in Bhatinda, where booze flowed freely. Even Congress candidate from Jalandhar, Rajinder Beri was questioned by the media after a sting operation revealed the investigating journalist, posing as a voter, was given a piece of paper with a signature on it, when he asked for some incentive. All he had to do is show the slip in the nearby liquor shop to avail 6 bottles of liquor.
Cash and Liquor are the incentives given to vote in favour of respective political parties since long but its time the voters realize their moral responsibilities. Blaming the parties is easier but is it not a fact that if the crowd denies such unwanted incentives, this would cease to work for people who buy India’s future so cheaply.
We all want an honest government but when it comes to us, we become dishonest to ourselves. Its time we realize, Anna lies inside all of us and before supporting the Lokpal Bill we should support the Honest Human inside us which knows the difference between wrong and right clearly but ends up giving up infront of dishonesty.
