Fending off the allegations,Tejashwi simply said: "How could I indulge in corruption at an age when I hadn’t even sprouted amoonch(moustache)" His other defence was that he belonged to a backward caste family "How could I be embroiled ina criminal conspiracy at that age I have been deputy chief minister for two years and am doing development work for Bihar Modi used to fear Lalujibut now he is fearful of me as well a 28-year-old The case filed against me is a political vendetta We will not rest until the BJP is uprooted from the whole of India" Directing his anger towards the media he said: "Some of you constitute BJP-minded media. some newgoondashave come in media who are disappointed that the grand coalition in Bihar is going strong The grand coalition is indestructible" The pertinent question is:Should Tejashwi who now sports a moustache and a beard resort to unleashing his goons to beat those who were only doing their duty as journalists The RJD has always been feared by the people in Bihar which is precisely why Lalu and his clan were discarded in 2005 (Assembly elections) 2009 (General) 2010 (Assembly) – when Rabri lost elections from both the constituencies she contested – and 2014 (General) Lalu succeeded in the 2015 Assembly polls only when he aligned with Nitish’s JD(U) and a prior commitment that Nitish would be chief minister The attack on media persons is bound to have severe implications for Nitish who was already in a tight spot over the series of corruption charges levelled against almost every single member of the Yadav family Nitish’s reputation as SushashanBabu (governance man) who set right law and order in the state– earned during his 2005-2015 reign – is under threat now Wednesday’s attack on media persons by his deputy’s men would make it incumbent on him to register a case against state policemen and RJD men present at the spot Nitish is also minister-in-charge of the home ministry The problem for Tejashwi and the RJD stems from the fact that not only have the central investigative agencies – CBI Income Tax Department Enforcement Directorate – tightened their grip around them Nitish now appears ready to take a tough stance on the issue A day before Nitish hadgiven a four-day deadlineto the RJD to come clean on the corruption charges against its top leaders Responding to Nitish Tejashwilashed out at the BJPfor what he called ‘politically motivated attacks against him and his family’ He was trying to make his family’s corruption enterprise into an emotive issue to appeal to his party’s core social constituency It’s apparent that what worries the Yadav clan the most are the immediate implications – their continuance in the Bihar government hangs in the balance What Lalu Rabri Tejashwi Tej Pratap Misa Ragini Chanda and their backers in Congress party have conveniently forgotten is that the raids and FIRs registered by the CBI had essentially come after investigations done on voluminous documents submitted by Nitish’s trusted party colleagues to then prime minister Manmohan Singh in 2008 The Congress-led UPA government chose to sleep over those files for six years and it required the advent of the Modi government to begin action on those documents Also the income tax and enforcement directorate investigations on the Yadav clan’sbenamiproperties is as per demands made by Nitish in the aftermath of Modi’s crackdown on benamiproperty By supporting the Modi government on issues like the surgical strike demonetisation GST and the Presidential election Nitish has made his position clear – that unlike his peers in Opposition he wouldn’t indulge in politics of cynicism but rather support or oppose Modi government on merit His close aides in JD(U) point out that through decades of hard work Nitish has earned an image of a clean and governance-oriented leader That’s his only capital and he wouldn’t like to lose it at any cost – least of all for defending corruption charges against Lalu’s family Sanjay Jha national general secretary of JD(U) while speaking to Firstpost said:"Hamari sarkar chale ya na chale hum mulyon ke saath samjhauta nahi kar sakte (Regardless of whether we continue in government we cannot compromise on our values) It must be remembered here that when Nitish had parted ways with the BJP in 2013 he had unilaterally sacked all the BJP ministers without even informing them Under the circumstances the question is not whether the JD(U)-RJD-Congress coalition is heading for a split but rather when The deeds of the past they say will come back to haunt you without fail some day True in all sense for Karti Chidambaram and his father former union finance minister P Chidambaram For Karti who allegedly made a killing in the notorious Aircel-Maxis deal through a company he owns – Advantage Strategic Consulting Private Limited Not just Karti When the probe advances further the Aircel-Maxis case could prove to be the biggest jolt also for P Chidambaram in his political career considering its multiple dimensions Chidambaram was finance minister when the foreign investment promotion board approved the Aircel-Maxis deal The Enforcement Directorate (ED) summoning Karti may be just the beginning of several sleepless nights for the father-son duo Karti Chidambaram Firstpost To put it in nutshell the whole story pertains to the forced selling of Aircel in 2006 by its owner entrepreneur C Sivasankaran allegedly under pressure from former Union telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran To return the favour Maxis invested about Rs 47 crore in the Sun Group owned by Dayanidhi Maran’s brother Kalanidhi Maran Karti Chidambaram allegedly facilitated the whole transaction through his firm Advantage Consulting and passing the bribes Karti may not have a solid defence in the Maxis case As a New Indian Express investigative series revealed he will have a lot of explaining to do to prove the legitimacy of his assets worldwide through the firms allegedly owned by him and an army of benamis who have facilitated the transactions When the skeletons begin to tumble out of the closet the case may not be limited to the Aircel-Maxis deal alone The investigations are leading to complex web of benami transactions used by Chidambarams to hide their ill-gotten wealth As the New Indian Express expose reveals Karti owned majority stake in Advantage through a holding company Ausbridge But the ownership of the company — Advantage — was shown in the names of benamis who in turn wrote wills later to transfer the ownership to Karti’s daughter And who keeps these wills Here again Karti as found in his vault by a joint team comprising Income Tax and Enforcement authorities Now what is Advantage’s wealth Advantage India holds 90000 shares out of the 15 lakh equity shares of Vasan Eye Care The firm procured the shares at a throwaway price of Rs 100 per share However the report states that it actually paid only one-third or Rs 33 per share It sold 60000 shares in two tranches of Rs 30000 to Sequoia Capital Investments a Mauritius-based investment fund In the first tranche 30000 shares were sold at Rs 7500 per share or Rs 225 crore Assuming that the second tranche was also sold at the same price and if the balance shares are valued at the same price then Vasan Eye Care’s share would amount to Rs 1125 crores which Advantage acquired at a mere Rs 50 lakh according to the report Now that’s quite a killing isn’t it Karti’s empire is spread in several countries which would also mean several jurisdictions The Singapore subsidiary of Advantage Advantage Singapore has real estate investments in at least 15 countries But under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) ED can expand its probe to any geographies and seek help of international agencies if needed Chidambaram Karti’s father has always pointed guns at the ruling BJP-government citing political vendetta whenever investigators targeted Karti or his ‘friends’ “If the government wishes to target me they should do so directly not harass friends of my son who carry on their own businesses and have nothing to do with politics" P Chidambaram said But Chidambaram’s seeming attempt to politicise the issue may not work since the Congress party itself wouldn’t want to get involved in the case given the seriousness of the case and its larger political implications ahead of UP elections next year and amid the struggle of the party itself to rebuild its image Also there’ll be immense pressure on the Narendra Modi government not to loosen its stance from regional parties such as AIADMK and BJD In its two-year rule the Modi government has gained reputation for its way of dealing with cronies and crooks The government wouldn’t want to lose that image in this case as well It has already lent a freehand to various investigating agencies in the Aircel-Maxis case until the complex threads of the deal counter-deals and kickbacks are separated beyond suspicion Karti has once jokingly said that having an Aircel SIM card is his only involvement in the Aircel-Maxis deal But it is unlikely that there will be any takers for that joke In April 2014 just before the general election the man who would become prime minister was interviewed at length on camera by the activist and writer Madhu Kishwar Narendra Modi who was then chief minister of Gujarat revealed some things about himself and his style of working that I found interesting I took some notes as I was watching and this is what he said He had changed the work culture of the chief minister’s office in Gujarat Before he took charge chief ministers would show up at 12 pm But Modi was always punctual and in office by 945 am I know he is very particular about time and each time I have met him it has been at the exact minute of the appointment Another important thing he revealed was how he actually worked Modi said he doesn’t read files This I found to be unusual in someone who is so decisive because one needs full control over the subject if one is eager to take big decisions Prime Minister Narendra Modi Reuters But Modi says he cannot govern through "academics studies (sic)" and instead asks his officers to summarise all issues for him and brief him orally They are expected to go through the file and tell him as he put it "yeh masala hai kya" He said he had the capacity to figure out the delicate contours of these issues without actually reading about them He said this is because "mera itna grasping tha" Modi also revealed that he was a ‘good listener’ and was able to absorb what was being said to him well When I heard him say this I thought it made him vulnerable to the bureaucrats he was trusting because he is dependent and can be fed as much or as little as the officer wants him to know In the style of working as Modi describes it a complex matter that occupies dozens and perhaps hundreds of pages in files is reduced to an oral summary It is possible that because of lack of time or because the issue is overly complex the oral summary is simplistic On the basis of this summary Modi takes a decision and this is then executed through the administration This style seems to have worked well for Modi because he is thought of as being a good chief minister in his 12 years in Gujarat These days however I have been again thinking about Modi’s style of taking input in this form when making decisions That is because the Supreme Court is asking critical questions about the way in which the demonetisation policy was rolled out The court wants to know if the policy was planned properly or a decision was taken "just like that" when Modi scrapped Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes on 8 November The court wanted to know why the government was announcing withdrawal limits but the banks were unable to give this to the citizens Why did things appear like they had not been thought through The Centre has pushed back strongly to assert its independence and said that monetarypolicy could not be made up by courts I think the government is right on that count and I hope that the issue is resolved in the government’s favour To return to the subject I think Modi’s style of working might have some advantages For example where quick decisions need to be taken or where the issue is not complex Modi has a very good eye for what is visually appealing and I suspect that things like the ‘Make in India’ logo which is excellent have come because Modi has personally approved them But what happens when the issue that is being decided on is vast complex and needs to be studied thoroughly and personally by the individual who is taking the decision and who is ultimately accountable for it Then I suspect things get more problematic Not everything can be reduced to oral summaries Modi’s style is the exact opposite style as Manmohan Singh who was detail-oriented as you would expect an academic to be Singh has written that he fears demonetisation will end up as a mammoth tragedy over the next few months Modi on the other hand has told us that we will enter a different and better world in January Both men cannot be right and we will know which one of them is wrong quite soon By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: July 29 2017 9:06 pm PU Chitra’s inclusion for the World Championships depend on IAAF’s decision Top News The Athletics Federation of India has requested the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to consider PU Chitra in the upcoming World Championships after the Sports Minister Vijay Goel advised the national body to honour Kerala High Court’s decision In their reply AFIsaid that they have written to the IAAF and now Chitra’s inclusion depends on international federation’s court “We have formally written to IAAF to consider P U Chitra’s entry as an Indian participation in women’s 1500m race It is now up to IAAF to accept the request or not” AFI secretary C K Valson told PTI Chitra filed a written petition after her exclusion from the Indian squad for the Athletics World Championships despite her winning a gold medal for the country in the women’s 1500m event in the Asian Athletics Championships In reply to Chitra’s plea theKerala High Court had directed the central government to ensure participation of Chitra in the World Athletics Championships which is scheduledin London in August “Shri Goel talked to AFI President Shri Adille Sumariwalla on the issue and advised him not to contest the directive given by the Kerala High Court as P U Chitra is otherwise a wild card entry for the World Championship” the sports ministry said Sources however said that it will be difficult for the IAAF to grant a place to Chitra as deadline for the online entry of the athletes is already over With the deadline for the online entry of the athletes already over Chitra’s inclusion is very sleek “From our part we can no longer access the password protected entry of the athletes as it has passed the deadline We have to see what the IAAF does for only one country I think it will be difficult for Chitra to get an entry” an athletics expert said Kerala HC also observed that the selection process was not transparent and a couple of qualified athletes were not named in the squad As per the guidelines AAC winners automatically qualify for the World Championships but the international body has clearly stated that the national federations have the power of not sending a continental event winner Interestingly long distance runners Sudha Singh and Ajay Kumar Saroj have
