Jayalalithaa Bail Rejection Right Correct

In Corruption on October 7, 2014 at 18:29

It is quite some time now since I have written on Political cases involving corruption save for the one on Jayalalithaa’s arrest in the disproportionate wealth  case.

 

Reason is that I was fed up on reporting corruption exhaustively only to find that the process of Law being subverted .

 

The culprits remain unpunished, going about their tasks of amassing wealth as usual, with more vigor.

 

Now a ray has appeared  in the conviction of Jayalalithaa.

 

For my article the End of Dravidian parties in Tamil Nadu, where I dealt with Jayalalithaa’s conviction, I have received. apart from emails,personal calls,stating that my views are wrong,there are people who are more corrupt going scot-free,like Sonia Gandhi,Karunanidhi,A.Raja and many more;

 

Jayalaithaa’s conviction for 66.64 crore is a pittance against Rs 1,86,000 crore 2G scam and some other corruption cases;

 

She has done a lot for the poor;

 

Some told me as a Brahimin I should desist from  condemning Jjayalalithaa.

 

My friend for about 50 years slammed and hung up the phone on me.

 

Now that Jayalalithaa’s bail application has been rejected by the High Court of Karnataka, which I anticipated,my view on this issue remains the same.

 

We seem to have watered down basic values, being Honest,of Integrity, Sincerity, Loyalty.

 

We have started giving shades to the values.

 

Less Honest,Less sincere, slightly less loyal etc.

 

Moral values are Absolute.

 

There can be difference between one who takes Rs 100 as Bribe and another who takes ONE CRORE.

 

Both are corrupt and have to be punished.

 

People have been saying that Bail should be granted.

 

Bail is not a matter of Right and it is the discretion of the court.

 

As for as the contention that Lallu Prasad has been granted bail in th Fodder scam, the judge , who tried Jayalalithaa’s case, observed that Lallu had been in Jail for ten months and Jayalalithaa has been in Jail for only ten days.

 

He has also observed correctly  that corruption is an assault on basic Human Rights.

 

Surprising why prosecution did not object for the bail

 

The judgement is Morally Right and legally correct.

 

I expect more abuses for this article.

 

There is no parity with Lalu Prasad’s case; corruption is violation of Human Rights.

End Of Dravidian Parties In Tamil Nadu?

In Corruption on September 27, 2014 at 15:36

The long-awaited verdict in the Tamil Nadu CM Jayalithaa’s case is out in the Bangalore Special Court at Parapana Agrahara.

 

This is in connection with the acquisition of  disproportionate  assets case and she has been charged under the Prevention of Corruption Act under sections   13 (1) for Criminal Misconduct by Public Servants,109 for abetting and Section 120 B (Criminal Conspiracy)

 

The case was filed in 1996 by Dr.Subramaniam Swamy.

 

This relates to.

 

The conduct of Jayalalithaa’s adopted son Sudhakaran at a cost of Rs 5 Crore.

 

2000 acres of Land and farms.

 

Possession of  1200 pairs of footwear and

 

12.000 Silk Sarees.

 

( This pales against 2 G and other scams Rs 1,86,000 Crore and above)

 

 

 

The Court had pronounced the accused Jayalalithaa, Sasikala,Ilavarasi and Sudhakaran Guilty.

 

 

The quantum of punishment , Jayalalithaa,

 

Four years Imprisonment and Rs 100 Crore Fine,,failing with additional one year in Jail”for others 4 years imprisonment and Rs ten crore fine, failing which additional one year imprisonment for Jayalalithaa and six months for the others,

 

 

 

The section attracts a total of 7 years imprisonment.

 

However the Court has its discretion.

 

Bail and appeal procedures will follow,

 

However the chances of relief seem to be remote considering the time taken for the conclusion of the case,17 years,, and the detailed way the court has gone about the case.

 

Impact.

 

Jayalalithaa  will lose her MLA post and has to resign as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.

 

If the quantum of sentence is more than three years, bail may be granted.

 

In any case Jayalalithaa may have to spend at least two days in prison(Saturday and Sunday)

 

She may appoint a benami CM probably O.Pannerselvam who has been the Nominee CM when Jayalalithaa was convicted in TANSI Land case.

 

She might go in for a snap election well ahead of the next election in about one and a half-year.

 

Sympathy vote might work in her favor.

 

But she will be out of Politics at least  between 5 to nine years,

 

Whether she would be able to control the party till then is a moot question.

 

The next in the line for power is DMK, which has been wiped out in the recently conclude election because of 2G.

 

People are not in favour of DMK and Karunanidhi and CO with corruption cases and family infights.

 

There is  a power vacuum now in Tamil Nadu.

 

If National Parties, especially the BJP moves in with Modi at the Center, it will be a turning point.

 

Is the BJP up to it?

 

Is it willing?

 

The Dravidian Parties have ruined Tamil Nadu, its social fabric and undesirable element shave found refuge in these parties and both these appeared to be invincible, with either of them coming to power.

 

Now Providence has given a path.

 

Time to get rid of them. lock stock and barrel.

 

 

Helped Rajiv Gandhi Firm KGB

In Corruption, India on July 15, 2014 at 21:23

Information galore on Nehru family corruption and patriotism!

 

KGB helped Rajiv Controlled Firm get contracts.The Hindu page.jpg

Now comes the information that KGB had manipulated to award contracts to Firm/Firms controlled by Rajv Gandhi Family.

 

There is another disclosure in a book called The State within a State: The KGB and its Hold on Russia: Past, Present, and Future by Yevgenia Albats, a journalist working for Moscow News and Isvestia, published in 1994. It claimed that KGB funds had been sent to support the Congress as well as the family of the Gandhis. The author cites the KGB letter and file reference in her book. All major newspapers, the Hindu and the Times of India included, had carried the expose on KGB payments even before the actual publication of the book in 1994, when the KGB papers were unveiled in the year 1991-92. Even before Dr Albats’ book came out Russian media had leaked out details and, based on the leaks, on 4 July 1992, the Hindu had reported that “the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service admits the possibility that the KGB could have been involved in arranging profitable Soviet contracts for the company controlled by Rajiv Gandhi family”.

 

* I have posts on all these cases filed under corruption.

Now the famous or infamous, depends on your perspective, Mitrokin archives have been made Public by the Russian Government.

 

Read a sample and follow the Links for detail.

 

Some patriot, some ma Durga! “Durga Courtesy Vajpayee)

 

“Pages from the Book ‘The Mitrokhin Archive II: The KGB and the World shows that Indira Gandhi alias Maimoona Beegum was on the payroll of KGB. The whole nation was on the payroll of KGB and even ISI. Indira was put in place by murdering Lal Bahadur Sastry the first Hindu PM of India, by the KGB”

 

In 1992, in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, a number of secret documents from the KGB, the nation’s intelligence agency, were extricated from the country. For the first time, those files have been opened to the public.

 

THE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH INDIA; PART I

Neither Nehru nor the IB, however, realized how thoroughly the Indian embassy in Moscow was being penetrated by the KGB, using its usual varieties of the honey trap. The Indian diplomat PROKHOR (code name given for the Indian by KGB) was recruited, probably in the early 1950s, with the help of a female swallow (a female Russian prostitute/spy), codenamed NEVEROVA, who presumably seduced him. The KGB was clearly pleased with the material which PROKHOR provided, which included on two occasions the embassy code-book and deciphering tables, since in 1954 it increased his monthly payments from 1,000 to 4,000 rupees. Another Indian diplomat, RADAR, was recruited in 1956, also with the assistance of a swallow, who on this occasion claimed (probably falsely) to be pregnant.6 A third KGB swallow persuaded a cipher clerk in the Indian embassy, ARTUR, to go heavily into debt in order to make it easier to compromise him. He was recruited as an agent in 1957 after being trapped (probably into illegal currency dealing) by a KGB officer posing as a black-marketeer.7 As a result of these and other pen¬etrations of the embassy, Soviet code breakers were probably able to decrypt substantial numbers of Indian diplomatic communications.

As KGB operations in India expanded during the 1950s and 1960s, the Centre seems to have discovered the extent of the IB’s previous penetration of the CPI. According to a KGB report, an investigation into Promode Das Gupta, who became secretary of the Bengal Communist Party in 1959, concluded that he had been recruited by the IB in 1947.* Further significant IB penetrations were discovered in the Kerala and Madras parties.10 By the 1960s KGB penetration of the Indian intelligence community and other parts of its official bureaucracy had enabled it to turn the tables on the IB.11 After the KGB became the main conduit for both money and secret communications from Moscow, high-level IB penetration of the CPI (Communist Party of India) became much more difficult. As in other Communist parties, this secret channel was known only to a small inner circle within the leadership. In 1959 the CPI General Secretary, Ajoy Ghosh, agreed With the Delhi residency on plans to fund an import-export business for trade with the Soviet bloc, headed by a senior Party member codenamed DED, whose profits would be creamed off for “party funds”. Within little more than a decade its annual profits had grown to over 3 million rupees. The Soviet news agency Novosti provided further subsidies by routinely paying the CPI publishing House at a rate 50 per cent above its normal charges

Moscow’s interest in Nehru was greatly enhanced by his emerg¬ence (together with Nasser and Tito) as one of the leaders of the Non-Aligned Movement, which began to take shape at the Bandung Conference in 1955, An exchange of official visits in the same year by Nehru and Khrushchev opened a new era in Indo-Soviet relations. On his return from India in December, Khrushchev reported to the Presidium that he had received a warm welcome, but criticized the ‘primitive1 portrayal of India in Soviet publications and films which demonstrated a poor grasp of Indian culture. Khrushchev was, how¬ever, clearly pleased with the intelligence and personal security pro¬vided by the KGB during his trip and proposed that the officers concerned be decorated and considered for salary increases…..

Following Menon’s political eclipse, Moscow’s preferred candi¬date to succeed Nehru after his death in May 1964, was Gulzarilal Nanda, Home Minister and number two in the cabinet. The Delhi residency was ordered to do all it could to further his candidature but to switch support to Lai Bahadur Shastri, also a close associate of Nehru, if Nanda’s campaign failed.24 There is no indication in the files noted by Mitrokhin that the KGB was in contact with either Nanda or Shastri. Moscow’s main reason for supporting them was almost certainly, negative rather than positive-to prevent the right-wing Hindu traditionalist Morarji Desai, who began each day by drinking a glass of his own urine (a practice extolled in ancient Indian medical treatises), from succeeding Nehru. In the event, after Desai had been persuaded to withdraw reluctantly from the contest, Shastri became Prime Minister with the unanimous backing of Con¬gress. Following Shastri’s sudden death in January 1966, the cabal of Congress leaders (the ‘Syndicate’) chose Nehru’s daughter, Indira Gandhi (code named VANO by the KGB), as his successor in the mistaken belief that she would prove a popular figurehead whom they could manipulate at will.25

The KGB’s first prolonged contact with Indira Gandhi had occurred during her first visit to the Soviet Union a few months after Stalin’s death in 1953. As well as keeping her under continuous surveillance, the Second Chief Directorate also surrounded her with handsome, attentive male admirers.26 Unaware of the orchestration of her welcome by the KGB, Indira was overwhelmed by the atten¬tions lavished on her. Though she did not mention the male admirers in letters to her father, she wrote to him, “Everybody- the Russians -have been so sweet to me… I am being treated like everybody’s only daughter- I shall be horribly spoilt by the time I leave. Nobody has ever been so nice to me.’ Indira wrote of a holiday arranged for her on the Black Sea, ‘I don’t think I have had such a holiday for years’. Later, in Leningrad, she told Nehru that she was ‘wallowing in luxury. Two years later Indira accompanied her father on his first official visit to the Soviet Union. Like Nehru, she was visibly impressed by the apparent successes of Soviet planning and economic moderniz¬ation exhibited to them in carefully stage-managed visits to Russian

factories. During her trip, Khrushchev presented her with a mink coat which became one of the favorite items in her wardrobe -despite the fact that a few years earlier she had criticized the female Indian ambassador in Moscow for accepting a similar gift.28

Soviet attempts to cultivate Indira Gandhi during the 1950s were motivated far more by the desire to influence her father than by any awareness of her own political potential. Like both the Congress Syndicate and the CPI, Moscow still underestimated her when she became Prime Minister. During her early appearances in parliament, Mrs. Gandhi seemed tongue-tied and unable to think on her feet. The insulting nickname coined by a socialist MP, ‘Dumb Doll’ began to stick.29 Moscow’s strategy during 1966 for the Indian elections in the following year was based on encouraging the CPI and the breakaway Communist Party of India, Marxist (CPM) to join together in a left-wing alliance to oppose Mrs. Gandhi and the Congress government.30 As well as subsidizing the CPI and some other left-wing groups during the 1967 election campaign, the KGB also funded the campaigns of several agents and confidential contacts within Congress. The most senior agent identified in the files noted by Mitrokhin was a minister codenamed ABAD, who was regarded by the KGB as ‘extremely influential’.31

During the election campaign, the KGB also made considerable use of active measures, many of them based on forged American docu¬ments produced by Service A. An agent in the information depart¬ment of the US embassy in New Delhi, codenamed MIKHAIL, provided examples of documents and samples of signatures to assist in the production of convincing forgeries.32 Among the operations officers who publicized the forgeries produced for the 1967 election campaign was Yuri Modin, former controller of the Cambridge ‘Magnificent Five’. In an attempt to discredit S, K. Patil, one of the leading anti-Communists in the Congress Syndicate, Modin cir¬culated a forged letter from the US consul-general in Bombay to the American ambassador in New Delhi referring to Patil’s political intrigues with the Pakistanis’ and to the large American subsidies supposedly given to him. Though Patil was one of the most senior Congress politicians defeated at the election, it remains difficult to assess how much his defeat owed to KGB active measures.33 Modin also publicized a bogus telegram to London from the British High Commissioner, John Freeman, reporting
