1. SC pulls the Rug off CBIs feet ! . . . .Quashes Case against Mayawati .

    All right guys . . .

    In a turn of events that's going elicit a lot of cringes here on this forum . . .
    and a lot of faces drawn in Horror . . .(also some secret thanx to the stars from some admirers)


    The Supreme Court (yeah of India . . not Pakistan . . though u would think) has just ruled that CBI has no right whatsoever to Investigate Mayawati . .a k a Behanji

    but one thing yeah . . .u have to hand it to her . . .for the amount of International Media limelight she claims. . .
    in this regard for an arguably regional leader she's probably second only to. . .Mr Narendra Modi .

    This can obviously be the result of a lot of Behind the scene Drama , involving obviously UPA, CBI Mayawati
    and i suppose also the SC judge(s) . . .

    here are the News Reports Internationale :

    BBC News - India court boost for Mayawati in wealth case
    Court scraps probe against Mayawati, BSP chief elated - NY Daily News

    and the Domestic :

    Mayawati corruption case: CBI had no right to investigate her, says Supreme Court | NDTV.com * * * Read-worthy

    While BSP and Mayawati have welcome the Order
    Mayawati welcomes SC order on CBI probe against her - Hindustan Times * * * again quiet Read worthy

    CBI is said to be considering appealing against the decision :) (So much for Elaborate drama huh . . ?)

    I am not posting the News inline .... for obvious reasons . .

    The Hindu : News / National : Verdict in Mayawati case an ‘indictment’ of UPA Govt: BJP

    BJP on Friday alleged that the Supreme Court quashing the disproportionate assets case against BSP leader Mayawati was an indictment of the government which was “misusing” the investigative agencies for political gains.

    “This is a serious indictment of the UPA government which has turned the investigative agency as a tool to garner political support for its survival,” BJP spokesperson Tarun Vijay told reporters reacting to the verdict.

    He said there were several cases in Gujarat, Rajasthan and elsewhere in the country which were “examples of the misuse” of such investigative agencies for political gains by the government.

    “It is time the government should restore the credibility and independence of investigative agencies in the interest of democracy,” he said.

    The Supreme Court on Friday quashed a nine-year-old disproportionate assets case against her and pulled up the CBI for initiating the probe against her without specific directions from the court.

    Use of CBI as a political tool is well known, no surprises there. Both SP and BSP will do boot licking of Congress as their chiefs are pretty much corrupt.

    Judgement is based on the facts presented by the investigating agency and refuted by the defence.

    That she is a rags to riches fairy tale in such a short time is for all to see and stand in awe!

    But then, Conviction is based on the Prosecution's case and facts produced.

    You have to be a politician with a adequate seats in the Parliament to salvage the Govt in a crisis if you wish not to be prosecuted since the CBI will not put up a weak case otherwise!

    I saw that video someone appended of Vishwa Bandhu Gupta talking about Black Money. Surprising that he has not been taken to task and taken to Court by those who he mentioned directly and directly.

    Why so?

    Guess?

    It is another thing that I enjoyed his way of talking, languorously unwinding his tale with not a worry in the world or any care for time!

    He reminded me of a Lala shopkeeper of Karolbagh or Lajpatnagar chatting in a sultry afternoon with a friend at his shop when business is slow, over a cup of insipid oversweet tea.

    He had the typical avuncular jollity of a Punjabi slowly unwinding a tale, as if it were some earthshaking tale for one's ears only!

    Supreme court quashed the case because that's not what SC gave permission for. It gave only permission in Taj Corridor Case based on a petition. Without permission CBI has no jurisdiction. Congress let CBI pursue Disproportionate Assets case against Mayawati only as a pressure point knowing well that DA case will be struck down by SC. If Akhilesh Yadav wants, he can tomorrow ask CBI to continue the case against Mayawati.

    Re: Mayawati gets Relief as SC quashes CBI Case on Techinicality

    Incidentally Incometax Tax appellate Tribunal has given clean chit to this farce and upheld by High Court. No prizes for guessing on whose behalf Income tax tribunal gave this relief to Mayawati.

    Despite this ruling from SC, she could be in for more trouble.

    Also CBI is claiming that SC did gave permission delinking DA case and Taj Corridor case. I think CBI is going to file a review petition on this ruling. It might not be over yet for Mayawati. But it all depends which way she will go in 2014 general elections.
