FIRs against 14 ministers

IAC wants FIRs against 14 ministers. The ministers are P. Chidambaram, Ajit Singh, Farooq Abdullah, G. K. Vasan, Kamal Nath, Kapil Sibal, Sharad Pawar, Sriprakash Jaiswal, Sushilkumar Shinde, Vilasrao Deshmukh, M. K. Alagiri, Virbhadra Singh, S. M. Krishna and Praful Patel.

Kapil Sibal reduced fine on Reliance from 650 crore rupees to 5 crore rupees resulting in a loss of 645 crore rupees to the country. He should reverse his decision or pay 645 crore rupees.

Someone in Congress wanted to get rid of Ashok Chavan as CM, after a stage managed revelation with the help of a TV channel in which one Congress politician told another Congress politician that Ashok Chavan was unwilling to contribute to Sonia Gandhi’s rally but later fell in line and contributed two crore rupees, so Adarsh scam became public knowledge. The person does not want to get rid of Sushilkumar Shinde and Vilasrao Deshmukh so they have remained ministers.

If there is evidence of attacks on political rivals against M. K. Alagiri, IAC can approach Jayalalitha. She will be glad to file FIR and put him in jail.

If there is no loss to the exchequer in JKCA financial irregularities then the central or state government cannot file an FIR against Farooq Abdullah unless there is a complaint from someone in JKCA. JKCA has its income from BCCI and other sources. In case of Syed Yusuf Shah’s death, there has to be some evidence against Farooq Abdullah.

Virbhadra Singh has denied there being any video of him demanding a bribe from an IAS officer. He has demanded an apology from Arvind Kejriwal failing which he has threatened to take legal action against him.

IAC wants FIR against Kamal Nath for rice export scam. Tarun Das in his conversation with Radia had referred to him as having 15% of contract amounts. Later he had apologized and called himself a bloody fool.

Not much is known about G. K. Vasan causing loss of 2,00,000 crore rupees by giving away 16,000 acres near Kandla Port.

There is not much publicity to the case where P. Chidambaram’s wife is a lawyer to Kashinath Tapuriah against Income Tax department’s claim of 580 crore rupees tax. Subramanian Swami has a case in Delhi High Court against P. Chidambaram to make him an accused in 2G scam.

NDA was in power when stamp paper scam surfaced. Sharad Pawar was not prosecuted then. It is unlikely UPA will prosecute him.

CAG report about coal is not final. If the report indicts Sriprakash Jaiswal or there is other evidence FIR against him can be rightly demanded. When anything in the CAG report is leaked and that embarrasses Congress, Congress spokesperson either refuse to comment saying the report is not submitted or question the leakage. When incomplete Karntaka Lokayukta report on mining was leaked they had no hesitation in commenting on it.

Praful Patel’s actions as civil aviation minister caused loss to the country. He placed orders for unnecessary aircrafts. Boeing has not delivered the planes even after three years and not likely to deliver for another year. Air India continues to make loss. Ajit Singh, current civil aviation minister, should cancel the order placed with Boeing. If pilots go on strike Air India should be shut down.

There is no proof that Ajit Singh received money for voting in favour of UPA in 2008. Wikileaks cable is not sufficient.

Karnataka iron ore mining scam happened under different chief ministers. Apart from S. M. Krishna, FIRs have to be filed against other chief ministers.

The beneficiaries of the acts of ministers will do everything to thwart filing of FIRs. In Lok Sabha MPs spoke against IAC and passed a censure motion. MPs belonging to NDA and Left Front did not demand that the ministers step down. The issue is diverted from FIRs to dignity of Parliament. MPs who disrupt proceedings are not punished.

IAC also should demand FIRs against eight corrupt CJIs and other corrupt judges, bureaucrats, ministers and so on.

Someone said Lokpal will paralyse governmet. Government is already paralysed due to cabinet’s subservience to NAC, allies like DMK and TMC, Congress ministers who speak against their colleagues, Congress members who speak against the government and so on. Retrospective amendments have created uncertainty. If someone has scientific ideas to fight corruption he should mention them.

President of India

Election for the President of India is due within a few months. There is a possibility that UPA government may fall and Lok Sabha be dissolved. The election will be valid even if Lok Sabha and all Legislative Assemblies are dissolved and only elected members of Rajya Sabha vote in the election. Nominated members of Rajya Sabha, Lok Sabha and Legislative Assemblies do not have the right to vote in presidential election.

Modesty forbids me from mentioning the best person who should become the President. I will mention some good and better persons.

IAC has members like Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal and Shanti Bhushan who can be candidates. If Shazia Ilmi, Gaurav Bakshi and Abhinandan Sekhri are 35 they can be candidates.

Dinesh Trivedi puts country first, family second and the rest, next. He can be a candidate.

Arnab Goswami will make the contest for presidency interesting.

Among sportspersons there are Ajit Pal Singh, Ashok Kumar, Ashish Ballal, Merwyn Fernandes, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Michael Ferreira, Ramanathan Krishnan, Vijay Amritraj and Vishwanathan Anand.

Married women who, other things being equal, have retained their maiden surnames after marriage make good candidates for president.

The list of who should not become President includes Hamid Ansari, Manmohan Singh, P. Chidambaram and Sheila Dikshit.

The constitution prescribes that to be President the person has to be a citizen of India, completed the age of 35 years, qualified for election as member of Lok Sabha and should not hold any office of profit. I prescribe additional qualifications which also should apply to MPs, MLAs, MLCs, members of district councils, urban, rural and other local bodies.

India votes against Sri Lanka

On 22/3/2012 India voted against Sri Lanka in UNHRC, Geneva. Out of the 47 countries, 24 voted for the resolution, 15 against and 8 abstained. The resolution was moved by USA which has committed more war crimes than any other country in recent times. India was the only Asian country to vote against Sri Lanka. Russia, China, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Maldives, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Indonesia, Philippines, Cuba and some other countries voted against the resolution. India gave up its position of not voting in favour of any country specific resolution.

India’s human rights record is not good. AFSPA is in force in Kashmir and Manipur. Pakistan or some other country can move a resolution against India. When Benazir Bhutto was PM of Pakistan and P. V. Narasimha Rao was PM of India, Pakistan had moved a resolution against India.

USA and its allies have committed war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries. NATO countries have killed 40,000 civilians in Libya. Robert Bales murdered 16 people, including 9 children, in Afghanistan. What about a resolution against USA for its war crimes? What about a resolution against NATO countries for their war crimes in Libya? It is time for some countries to move resolutions against USA and its allies and NATO countries.

Sarath Fonseka was the general who led the war against LTTE. There is no talk of prosecuting him.

LTTE had fought against IPKF. More than a thousand Indian soldiers died fighting LTTE.

Tamil politics as practiced by DMK and AIADMK triumphed. The government would not have fallen if DMK had walked out of UPA. BSP could have joined.
