    The UPA's stars seem to be crossed.

    There seems to be no end of its trouble.

    Now, PC, the supposed to be a moral icon, seems to be the one who is up a gum tree and his reputation besmirched!

    It would have been better if Manish Tiwari kept his mouth shut and not lead the issue into greater suspicion than what is out in the open.

    If this is what it is, is it fair to put Chidambaram in the dock?

    The Govt official's "This has the approval of the Union Home Minister." does indicate Chidambaram's complicity.

    But then the MHA feels otherwise!

    This is what the MHA feels.

    The MHA's claim that the Director acted unilaterally in his own capacity is a bit thick and hard to swallow.

    Those who are aware of how the Ministries function will be laughing up their sleeves at this most ridiculous claim, which can be demolished in any inquiry.

    However, a good ploy to buy time to take the heat off!

    The timing and the sequence of events is very suspicious. Also the speed at which the Delhi LG has recommended prosecution of the case overturning the MHAs advice on the very day when the issue rocked the Parliament, shows that all is not as hunky dory as certain loudmouth congress spokesperson is claiming.

    PC may maintain a holier than thou attitude but his reputation has taken a beating. People from TN have been alleging about the activities of PC with his son Karthic as a front man.

    Wasn't PC also linked with some scam when the Hershad Mehta thing exploded?

    I maybe wrong.

    P Chidambaram is a like a firewall Once he goes down the PM and Congress party leadership will be
    engulfed by the 2G flames

    Hence the opposition want him so badly

    And he was DEFINITELY knowing what is happening and he chose to close his eyes
    and look the other way and let Raja do what he wanted

    Any idea as to what Sonia Gandhi feels about this sordid situation?

    Why are people behaving like Nero and fiddling as Delhi burns?

    Maybe.

    But compared to some of the Ministers and MPs, Chidambaram always looks like having had a bath, shaved and not harried. His crisp white dhoti tied like a lungi in the South Indian style makes him look rather nice!

    Of course, he is arrogant and thinks everyone else is a fool and that is his problem!

    The only person who he feels is a fool, where I agree with him, is Digvijay Singh, who has made himself look like a clown!

    When I read this on going serial of scandals and abuse of trust by these shameless elected officials clothed in white robe it just boils up my blood and pray that someday very soon people will go in the streets of the entire nation and demand justice. When communication between two ministries is contradicting the stand taken by our HM than there is something fishy without a doubt. It is also possible that A. K. Saxena might have tried do a favour S.P. Gupta for any future consideration. All the possibilities should be explored to get the facts out in open.

    I think GOI should set up an office of inquiry specifically for Chidambaram and his dealing to this day to get to the bottom of it. They should have a committee to reel in all the individuals involved in this fiasco and whoever is found guilty the punishment should be no less than fifty years. Beside the jail term all the money spent on inquiry should become the responsibility of convicted parties.

    In order to safeguard the GOI from any type of scandals all the candidates vying for the any ministerial post should be made declare their personal contacts and copies of correspondence be examined by a committee before being accepted for the post.

    These distraction have become a nuance and very little is being done to achieve the goals for national defence and economic development therefore it is about time have rules and regulation to prevent these undesired shenanigans by elected officials.

    Having worked in Delhi, and having seen notesheets and GOI letters, I can say this with confidence that no one in the appointment of a Director would dare endorse an official letter to state that it has the approval of the Minister without having really had the approval of the Minister, verbally or in writing.

    If the various notesheets and Part Cases are vetted, more often than not, such an approval (even an initial to indicate seen) would surface.

    An initial to indicate seen is adequate to indicate approval unless a note is endorsed thereafter on the noting sheet.

    And any letter that indicates a policy or in the name of the Minister has to go to the Minister on file for his perusal!

    Chatterjee is Sonia's man to keep a watch over MMS.

    If MMS is doing what you say, he has become a man!

    Pranab can give Gandhis run for their power but he can not do it without PC & Pawar. And I'm not surprised when Pranab defends Chidambaram.

    I take your word for what you have stated, it is time for heads to roll. Let us construct a separate jail named "Ministers Hard Labour Jail". If I ever return and start my political carrier in India wish these thugs good luck. I will whip everyone into a mindset where any abuse of even one paisa worth will be a jail term in the prison and no exceptions at all.

    Chatterjee is given responsibility to check the progress of all GOI schemes every month. Reason for which you know. Nair is still the most powerful. Pulok C was doing great in early days of UPA-1 but mysteriously escaped when it came to Nuke Bill dispute within UPA around 2007.
