    Allegations made by Kejriwal a ‘daily phenomena’: Sibal

    Trashing the charges levelled by Arvind Kejriwal against Robert Vadra over his business dealings with realty major DLF, Human Resources Development Minister Kapil Sibal on Tuesday said that levelling allegations has become a “daily phenomena.”

    “Allegations are happening 24x7. It is a daily phenomena just like 24x7 television news channels”, he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here when asked about the charges against Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law.

    Mr. Kejriwal had alleged that DLF gave unsecured interest free loan of Rs 65 crore to Mr. Vadra. The realty major as well as Mr. Vadra have denied the allegations.

    Kapil Sibal is once again back to his trick as he did for 2G.

    The man cannot do with the limelight and so has to act as a spinmeister and thinks the country is only of stupid village idiots and yokels.

    That he is a fat cat and a Cheshire Cat is well known.

    He loves to purr idiotic!

    The Govt and Sibal forgets that if there is a scam per day, the revelation will be one per day.

    Prosecute him, if the Govt has the guts is what I say.

    It is true he is proving to be a menace to the smug crony capitalism and well concealed money making scams.

    Came in Kejriwal's line of fire

    National Election Watch has dedicated itself to running down criminals in politics, naming and shaming them on the basis of fact. As part of its mandate, it analyses reams of paper ahead of and immediately after every election: how many candidates fought the election though they had criminal cases registered against them? How many have PAN cards, which means, do they file income tax returns? How many are graduates and above?

    In the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections in 2012, 14 per cent of candidates and 19 per cent of winners had serious criminal cases against them; 46 per cent had no PAN number and 22 per cent were crorepatis.

    Louise Khurshid, who contested the election from Kayamganj, district Farrukhabad, had no criminal case against her, serious or otherwise. The daughter of an IAS officer (the first chief secretary of Goa after its liberation) and the wife of Union law minister, she would probably shudder at the thought of breaking the law. With a degree from Jesus and Mary College, Delhi, and an MA in journalism from Marquette University, US, she was probably more educated than many of the reporters present at the press conference where she tried her best to explain that a sting operation that charged her and her husband, Salman, of defalcation might have got it wrong. When no one listened, Louise, and later Salman, lost their temper in frustration. It made for great TV but what lingered was the episode, not the actual clarification they were trying to make.
    India Today levelled the accusation that the union social welfare and empowerment ministry had granted Rs 71.50 lakh to the Khurshids’ trust for distributing tricycles and hearing aids to the disabled in 17 districts of Uttar Pradesh. Salman is president of the trust, Louise is project director. Some people, the report claimed, didn’t get the hearing aids they were supposed to and claimed this was contained in a report of the Comptroller and Auditor General. In fact, there’s only a draft CAG report, so the Khurshids filed a defamation case. The India Today Group now says in a letter to Louise that “some persons in the Trust or those associated with it are indulging in wrongdoing which you and Salman may not be aware of” and says it has the highest regard for Salman.

    Therefore, when social activist Arvind Kejriwal charged Khurshid with corruption on the basis of the India Today group report, he did not know he was skating on thin ice. Now, one of his supporters, Kumar Vishvas, says it was not possible for India Against Corruption to check every single fact. So when someone did a sting operation, IAC took it up. If the facts were wrong, too bad.

    Louise is a journalist herself. She worked with Sunday magazine and before that, with The Telegraph. A common love of theatre and the creative arts brought Salman and Louise together in the 1980s. Despite vastly different family and religious backgrounds, they got married and, influenced by the political family she was married into, Louise decided to join politics. A Catholic from Mangalore contested the UP Assembly elections in 2002 and became an MLA.

    The hurly burly of politics may have made Louise tougher than she ever imagined she could be but a core of sensitivity remains. Countless small acts of kindness by the couple extended to people they didn’t even know — passports for families in strained circumstances cutting the red-tape short; a hospital bed for a hit-and-run victim, school admission for the gifted child of a peon... their home was a menagerie for all animals, wounded and sick. If you think about it, all that was probably abuse of authority and power too.

    In a sea of corruption that is politics, allegations and outrage against soft targets is easy to evoke. Louise and Salman Khurshid are no Pappu Yadav or Madhu Koda. But beware the fury of the patient!

    Diggy has 27 questions for Arvind

    Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh asked activist Arvind Kejriwal to explain his relationship with US-based NGO Avaaz, which has been funding civil disobedience movements in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and Syria.
    Mr Singh also put 27 questions to Mr Kejriwal pertaining to how he remained 20 years in Delhi despite being a government servant (Indian Revenue Service). “Is it a fact that you were transferred to Chandigarh once, but you never joined,” he asked. “Why are there no details of individual donors and corporate donors on any website of your NGOs... Is it a fact that the NGO Kabir, with which you are closely associated, received $172,000 and $197,000 from Ford Foundation in 2005 and 2008 respectively? Was this foreign money used to organise seminars, advocacy, discussions, programmes, social media campaigns and publicity material related to the issue of corruption,” Mr Singh asked.
    “Is it a fact that you have diverted funds which you received in the name of India Against Corruption to your NGO Parivaran/Public Cause Research Foundation (PCRF),” he asked.

    Arvind Kejriwal slams Digvijay Singh, says never lobbied for NAC

    New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday rubbished Congress leader Digvijay Singh's claim that he had lobbied for an entry into Sonia Gandhi-led National Advisory Council seven years ago, saying he has never approached anyone for this.

    "I have never approached anyone for NAC. I never had any desire for being a member of NAC," Kejriwal told a news agency when asked about Singh's claims that he along with Swami Agnivesh had met him for help in getting into NAC in 2005-06.

    When contacted, Agnivesh said the meeting is said to have happened six-seven years ago and he does not remember any such meeting.

    "The issue which Singh raised happened in 2005-06. Time has passed. I don't remember whether I met him with Kejriwal or not," Agnivesh said.

    In a letter to Kejriwal, the AICC general secretary has described the activist as a "self-serving ambitious megalomaniac" having "streak" of Hitler in him. Singh alleged that Kejriwal wanted him to recommend his name for being made a member of the NAC.

    Yesterday, Kejriwal said Singh's letter describing him as a "self-serving ambitious megalomaniac" does not merit a response and it only showed that Congress party was "completely rattled and baffled".

    "Digvijay's letter to me does not merit a response. Congress seems to be completely rattled and baffled. That is apparent from Digvijay's letter. Digvijay seems Congress' last resort," Kejriwal had said.

    Responding to Singh's remarks, Kejriwal's close associate, Kumar Vishwas, said, "We have only one thing to say to him. Get well soon."

    ***************************************

    This proves that Digvijay Singh is either a congenital liar or he is serious afflicted with psychiatric disorder of conjuring stories he himself believes is true.

    Agnivesh denies any such incident.

    Digvijay Singh should prosecute Kejriwal.

    And the Govt should be pulled up for dereliction of duty and not being sensitive to India's sovereignty by allowing US to destablise India.

    If it is not true and the Govt clears Kejriwal or admits that they are hand in glove with Kejriwal, then Digvijay Singh should be prosecuted for causing national panic.

    I, for one, am aghast that the Govt has allowed US funding to destablilise India.

    Is our Govt in vassalage to the US?

    Manmohan Singh may have told Bush that India loves Mr Bush, but to allow US funds to destabilise India is a bit too much for any self respecting Indian to accept. And if Digvijay Singh is privy to the fact that the money was used to destabilise India, then hawk eye Chidambaram, who was the Home Minister would have surely known!
