Shri Rajnath Singh Ji

President,

Bhartiya Janta Party

38, Ashok Road,

New Delhi.

Reference:   Your letter of expulsion of 28th May, 2013.

Sir,

           I have been communicated the contents of your so called order of expulsion of 28th May, 2013.  I had myself written a long letter to the Party President before leaving India on 10th May for my holidays.  There is no reference to any of my letters and the contentions therein. This itself shows that there is no cause of expulsion.

I have been out of the Party at least from 2004, if not earlier.  In 2010, the Party approached me with a request to join.  At that time, I made it very clear that the Party knows my views on all problems facing the nation.  The Party has no right to change me but I have the right to change it.

There are, doubtless, undesirable persons within the Party who are determined to destroy its image for integrity and attachment to national service.  You have not referred to the letters written even before the expulsion notice was received by me and those written on more than one occasion after the actual service of the show cause notice.  I have pointed out that disciplinary powers under the constitution are vested in the Disciplinary Committee.  You do not have a Disciplinary Committee.  Your action shows incompetence and contempt for law. I will leave you to the judgment of the nation. Of course, I will release all the letters which I have written to you time to time after the service of the show cause notice.  I had asked for some documents which are referred to in some rules of your Party. They were never supplied inspite of demand and I wanted a hearing which has been denied. If it was not my life’s mission and the only political desire left in me that the present ruling government must be knocked out, I would have certainly exposed the undesirable elements within the Party in detail.  They are helping to keep the corrupt government in power.  I do not wish to weaken the fight against the corrupt even by exposing the undesirable elements who have acquired control of the Party.

By this stupid order of expulsion, the Party has committed suicide.  It will only bring joy to our corrupt rulers and few of their corrupt collaborators within the Party. If you are determined to commit suicide, even the gods cannot salvage you.

Your reference to the appointment of the Police Commissioner is wholly irrelevant.  I believe that I have saved the country by supporting the appointment of the present Director of CBI.

I have no desire to interrupt my hard earned vacation and relaxation. I thought that the Party’s debacle in Karnataka will compel some introspection but the destroyers of the Party have won.  I am referring to those within the Party.

I will, however, decide my further course of action after assessing the response of the public and I may turn up earlier if I find it necessary.

Sincerely yours,

Ram Jethmalani

My Dear Lal,                                                                Date: 28.11.2012
I have thought for days whether I should communicate with you at all. You might suspect I am influencing you to help me in saving my party membership. This is far from my mind.
I am writing this in the interest of the Party and the people of India . The nation has to be saved from our corrupt rulers and concealing truth about ourselves will only prove a disaster when it is discovered and exposed by our enemies.
I want nobody’s help in meeting this expulsion threat. I will be happy to be relieved .The party invited me to join to use my services . I have done my duty .
It is inevitable that I will expose the true character of those who have taken to the path of suicide. This might hurt you too. I think of my Rakhi Sister. I never dreamt that you will join the clique of bad characters who supported the Show Cause notice. But life is strange. I forgive your this act of ingratitude and betrayal.
You personally know that Arun Jaitley and Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar are thick friends. You know Neeraj Kumar and the arch criminal Abhishek Verma are thick as thieves. You could not have forgotten your public denunciation of him and the defamation complaint filed against you and it’s  attempted sordid settlement .
Arun Jaitley is no less  an offender than Vadra. He has a cosy relationship with him and his mother-in-law. He never speaks of Congress corruption,the black money case and the dacoits responsible for our poverty. He raises inane issues just to show he is some kind of Leader of Opposition.
Do think of all this.
                                                                             Sincerely Yours,
(Ram Jethmalani)

SUBJECT: CONGRESS CULTURE DEFINES SONIA GANDHI’S ROLE

Classified By: DCM Robert O. Blake, Jr. for Reasons 1.4 (B, D)

 

1. (C) Summary: Since the Congress-dominated government has been in power, there have been widespread allegations by the opposition BJP and media commentators that party President Sonia Gandhi has been pulling the strings of government. Our conversations with a wide variety of insiders suggest that her role is more muted and nuanced. She has deliberately attempted to preserve the image of being ““above the fray” “politically, taking maximum advantage of Congress culture, which prescribes that the party figurehead be surrounded by an “inner coterie” “to provide advice, and shield the leader from criticism and dissent. The Gandhis remain coy as to which of their many advisors are “in” “and which are “out,” “leading to endless speculation, and large numbers of people claiming to be “close to the Gandhi family.”

 

“Mrs. Gandhi also heads the National Advisory Council, the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Steering Committee, and a committee that administers relations with the Left Front (LF). She restricts her role in these meetings to presiding as chair and utilizes senior Congress leaders to do the talking. Embassy contacts emphasize that Mrs. Gandhi prefers to wield power behind the scenes, relying on discrete back-channel communications with key figures in Congress and allied parties to address outstanding problems. While this elaborate system protects her from blame for GOI shortcomings, it also complicates honest assessments, as her handlers strictly control information flow and access. End Summary.

 

The Web Around Sonia

 

2. (C) For decades, Congress culture has had an “inner coterie” “around the Gandhi family, to offer them advice and protect them from dissenting opinions and criticism. The family has been secretive about who belongs to the inner circle, which makes it difficult to define the current membership. Embassy contacts claim that this complex web assists and inhibits Mrs. Gandhi to wield power. While the BJP accuses Mrs. Gandhi of acting “as a shadow Prime Minister,” “our contacts generally agree that she and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh have defined their roles, with the PM acting as a corruption-free technocrat handling governance, who remains above the political fray, while Mrs. Gandhi concentrates on the constant give-and-take associated with running an enormous political party with tens of millions of members and a disparate coalition.

 

3. (C) Mrs. Gandhi’s three principal advisors, Ahmed Patel, Ambika Soni and Jairam Ramesh, have served the Gandhi family for many years, and derive their power through proximity to her. Party insiders believe that Soni is on the ascendant and currently among those individuals that Mrs. Gandhi trusts the most. Ramesh is primarily viewed as a thinker and wordsmith, who drafts Mrs. Gandhi’s speeches and helps shape her views. Insiders dismiss Ahmed Patel as an intellectual lightweight, known primarily for his skills as a political “errand boy” “who gets things done behind the scenes for Mrs. Gandhi. His star has fallen after allegedly mismanaging recent assembly elections in Jharkhand and Bihar.”

 

4. (C) Unlike the advisors, who tend to remain with the Gandhis over the long-term, individual politicians move in and out of Mrs. Gandhi’s inner circle. At present, the three most prominent include HRD Minister Arjun Singh, Party General Secretary Digvijay Singh, and Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar. All three are extremely ambitious and would like to become Prime Minister. According to our sources, Arjun Singh’s chances are fading, as he is viewed as too old and too overbearing. Sharad Pawar, once plagued by ill health, seems to have recovered and is considered one of the most senior and competent of the old Congress leadership. Digvijay Singh, the former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, is highly regarded as one of the few senior Congress leaders with the “common touch.” “Foreign Minister Natwar Singh, Home Minister Shivraj Patil and Defense Minister Pranab Mukherjee occupy a separate orbit of super Ministers whose long-standing personal ties to the Gandhi family and seniority in Congress politics allow direct personal access to Mrs. Gandhi, and routine input on Congress decision making across a range of issues. Of these three, Mukherjee is clearly the most formidable – and reportedly harbors the greatest hope of some day becoming Prime Minister.

 

Sonia and the NAC

 

5. (C) Although the National Advisory Council (NAC) has attracted considerable media attention, most agree that it is the least significant of the three bodies Mrs. Gandhi chairs, and is most notable for providing her with cabinet status. Sonia is said to be a strong backer of the Common Minimum Program (CMP), drafted by the Left parties and Congress after the 2004 electoral victory. She views the CMP as a useful tool that will keep the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) together. The UPA government established the NAC to “interface with civil society in the implementation of the CMP.” “Its functions are to:

–monitor implementation of the CMP;

–provide inputs for GOI policy formulation; and

–support GOI legislative business.

 

6. (C) Mrs. Gandhi’s role as NAC Chairman provides her with Cabinet rank and a “secretariat” “with a complement of civil servants and staff that report directly to her, as well as office space and a travel budget. The NAC members consist of intellectuals, former civil servants, and academics, including a number of heavyweights from India’s NGO community. NAC members are predominantly of a leftist ideological bent and maintain cordial relations with the Communists. Jairam Ramesh, who helped draft the CMP, is also a member, and has played an active role in the two or three meetings held since its creation. Members receive no compensation or government rank. Contacts tell us that while Mrs. Gandhi nominally chairs the sessions, she restricts her involvement to brief opening and closing statements.

 

7. (C) The NAC website provides access to papers drafted by the members, but it has not issued a policy document or played a significant role in policy formulation since its formation. Since the NAC has been largely moribund, some political observers theorize that Congress created it to provide Mrs. Gandhi with needed Cabinet rank and infrastructure, to help convince the Communists that it was serious about the CMP, to help burnish Mrs. Gandhi’s image as a “compassionate leader” “who cares about the poor, and to provide entre for NGOs in the policy process.

 

Sonia and the UPA

 

8. (C) There are three components that must be placated and balanced to keep the UPA government in power: Congress, the Communist parties, and the regional/caste parties. Sonia and the Congress leadership complain about Communist obstruction, but are convinced that these parties, although ideological, are not “irresponsible.” “In the eyes of Congress leaders, most Communists are “pragmatic,” projecting an image of looking after the poor and downtrodden, in order to mollify the party faithful, while not preventing government from functioning.

 

9. (C) While many in the Congress inner circle have some affinity with the Communists and work together with them on selected issues, they view the regional satraps of the UPA allies with disdain, and prefer to keep them at arm’s length. The recent Congress fiasco in Bihar, for example, convinced many in Congress that Bihar-based politicos Laloo Prasad Yadav and Ram Vilas Paswan are “loose cannons” “who cannot be trusted”. Their disdain for these often rustic regional politicians has prevented Congress from properly managing the UPA coalition. Because of these engrained prejudices, Congress has been unable to focus on the BJP as its principal adversary, and instead has become mired in internecine squabbling.

 

10. (C) Mrs. Gandhi chairs the UPA Steering Committee, which is supposed to provide a forum for UPA members to work out their differences. It has met no more than six times in the almost 11 months since the UPA came to power. Since the Communists support the UPA from the outside, they are not members of this committee, and hold their own meetings with Sonia and the Congress leadership on a weekly basis. This suggests that the UPA Steering Committee is primarily intended to coordinate policy between Congress and the regional/caste parties. One of the most powerful regional parties, the Samajwadi Party (SP) of Uttar Pradesh (UP) led by Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, also supports the UPA from outside and is not a member of the committee, while another, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) does not support the UPA.

 

11. (C) According to our contacts, Mrs. Gandhi plays a similar role in the Steering Committee meetings as she does in the NAC, sitting silently through meetings without participating and leaving substantive statements to Congress heavyweights. Congress Cabinet ministers participate in these meetings on an ad hoc basis according to the issues under discussion, and Sonia lets them present the party position. These include, Defense Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who does not restrict himself to defense issues but also addresses economic questions, Home Minister Shivraj Patil, Foreign Minister Natwar Singh, and Finance Minister Chidambaram, among others.

 

12. (C) Our contacts tell us that few tangible results have emerged from these meetings, which are held largely for public consumption and to demonstrate to the public that Congress is a responsible party interested in “coalition maintenance.” “In reality, Sonia Gandhi and the Congress leadership prefer to work most UPA management issues out of the public eye,” relying on phone calls and personal visits that are not open to prying eyes and the media.

 

Congress and the Communists

 

13. (C) Several interlocutors claimed that the weekly meetings with the Communists, also attended by Mrs. Gandhi, are more important than the UPA Steering Committee meetings, as Congress has determined that it will put forward no significant economic initiative without first vetting it with the Communists, and attempting to gain their assent. In addition to formal meetings, Mrs. Gandhi calls Left Front leaders to her residence for “breakfast” on an ad hoc basis. The breakfasts take place only when Sonia and her advisors deem that there is an issue so pressing that it requires a conclave. Mrs. Gandhi expects the meetings to be private and the press is not invited. However, in some instances participants will brief journalists off the record about what transpired. Congress leaders also routinely call their Communist counterparts on the telephone to discuss a wide range of issues. It is not clear whether Mrs. Gandhi personally telephones the Communist leadership, or whether she leaves that to her subordinates.

 

Comment

 

14. (C) As one of the world’s oldest and largest political parties, Congress has evolved an elaborate culture aimed at protecting the Gandhi dynasty. Mrs. Gandhi’s inner circle carefully controls her access to information, and inoculates her from criticism, while her carefully scripted public appearances protect her from making gaffes or missteps. This has the advantage of preserving the “sanctity” “of Mrs. Gandhi and the dynasty, but can also complicate her efforts to wield power. This system prevents Mrs. Gandhi from asserting herself and reduces her charisma, and makes her overly reliant on a selected group, which may not always have her or the party’s best interests at heart. She appears more comfortable working with the often high-caste and well-educated Communists than with regional satraps of the state-based parties, which suggests that the bumpy Congress/UPA relationship is likely to continue.

105346: Rahul Gandhi jumps into the U.P. electoral fray

REF: A. NEW DELHI 1699

B. NEW DELHI 1675 C. NEW DELHI 1508

Classified By: Political Counselor Ted Osius for reasons 1.4 (B,D)

 

1. (C) Summary: Rahul Gandhi, the heir apparent of the Gandhi family dynasty, has made a number of gaffes, suggesting an uneven start to his active political career. During a series of “roadshows” “meant to jump-start the Congress campaign in ongoing Uttar Pradesh (UP) elections, Rahul made elliptical and controversial statements regarding Pakistan, the destruction of the Babri Mosque and UP politics that were greeted with disbelief and derision. Veteran politics watchers cannot explain Rahul’s apparent missteps, while Congress insiders complain that he is a neophyte who does not have what it takes to become Prime Minister. Their hopes have now shifted to yet another member of the Nehru Dynasty, Rahul’s sister Priyanka, as they await her entry into politics. With Congress unable to break out of fourth place in UP, its only hopes of returning to significance would be on BSP Chief Mayawati’s coattails. Should Mayawati score big in the elections, the BSP would emerge as the state’s largest party and she would come within striking distance of forming the government. In such a scenario, Congress insiders claim the party would join a BSP government. Congress is apparently willing to play second fiddle to the authoritarian, corrupt and unpredictable Mayawati, if it keeps the hated BJP and SP out of power. Thus are the voters of UP bereft of visionary leaders or hope for a better future. End Summary.

 

Rahul Puts His Foot in His Mouth

 

2. (U) As part of its Uttar Pradesh (UP) electoral campaign, Congress has been sending heir apparent Rahul Gandhi into the countryside to conduct “roadshows,” “aimed at making contact with the average voter. Three times during the campaign Rahul has made elliptical statements which have puzzled and enraged political observers, other political parties, Congress cadre, and in one instance, Pakistan.

 

On April 15, Rahul in a speech at a UP campaign rally stated that “I belong to the family which has never moved backwards, which has never gone back on its words. You know that when any member of my family had decided to do anything, he does it. Be it the freedom struggle, the division of Pakistan or taking India into the 21st Century.”

 

Earlier, while on the campaign trail, Rahul had maintained that the Babri Mosque “would have been protected had a member of the Gandhi family been in power.”

 

At another rally, Rahul exclaimed that his party’s slide into the political wilderness in UP started with its 1996 alliance with former Chief Minister Mayawati and her BSP.

 

Reactions Mostly Negative

 

3. (U) The Rahul gaffes were greeted with bewilderment and, in some cases, disdain. In an Islamabad press conference a GOP spokesman sniffed that “it validates the point that we all know – that India has always been trying to interfere in Pakistan’s internal affairs and to destabilize Pakistan. It is a clear admission by a prominent member of India’s ruling family and of this party that is ruling now.” “Leading Pakistani track two activist Lt. General Talat Masood remarked, “it is in such bad taste and so unnecessary. It is a short-sighted approach to please certain domestic constituencies for the elections, but in the long run, so detrimental to relations between the two countries.”

NEW DELHI 00001915 002 OF 004

 

4. (U) The opposition BJP was equally unimpressed. Party spokesman Prakash Javadekar exclaimed that “if he claims this for his family, then he should also own up to the failure that resulted in Partition and the capture and occupation of large parts of Kashmir by Pakistan soon after independence.” CPI National Secretary D. Raja suggested that Rahul “had no grasp of historical issues,” “and should stick to current events”. Samajwadi Party (SP) General Secretary Amar Singh exclaimed that Rahul was “trying hard to find a niche for himself.”

 

Even Within Congress

5. (U) Press reports quoted Congress workers in UP as expressing ““bewilderment,” as they were unable to determine the political purpose of his remarks. One Congress worker theorized that Rahul was trying to resurrect the “soft Hindutva” “of his father Rajiv Gandhi and win over Hindu voters attracted to the BJP”, stating “a claim that Congress had actively worked for the division of Pakistan would certainly appeal more to a section of sectarian Hindus.” “Other Congress workers suggested that Rahul had simply spoken “without sufficient deliberation.” “One Congressman tried to shift the blame to Rahul’s entourage, stating “their inexperience could be the cause for the mistiming of the statements.” “Another opined that while Rahul’s statements regarding the Babri Mosque were meant to win over a section of Muslims to the party, all that it evoked was ridicule in the minority community.”

 

6. (C) Former MP (Janata Party) D.N. Patodia told Polcouns April 23 that Congress Party members have no choice but to defend Rahul, even when he makes the worst gaffes. He said Indira Gandhi was groomed for 15 years before coming to power, and predicted that Rahul will need an equally lengthy training period.

 

The Prime Minister Attempts Damage Control

 

7. (U) On the UP campaign trail, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared Rahul as “the leader of the future,” stating “your future is in your midst. Yes, I am talking of Rahul Gandhi. He is braving it out for you. He is with you. He is your future. Just one chance is required for him and the Congress Party to build a new Uttar Pradesh for you and your children.” “The BJP was quick to pounce on the PM, stating that “In a democratic society, political leaders rise from the grassroots; they are not born as a result of dynastic politics or a feudal mentality.” In truth, the PM’s timing could not have been worse, as papers took delight in twinning his statement with banner headlines of Rahul’s malapropisms.

 

Political Pundit Equally Bemused

 

8. (C) In an April 19 meeting with Poloff, veteran journalist and Hindustan Times Political Editor Pankaj Vohra noted that he was equally confused about Rahul and his statements. Vohra pointed out that the political watchers could not make sense of Rahul, stating that he seemed to be “talking out of his head.” “Vohra could not believe that Congress would allow Rahul to speak without preparation, exclaiming that “there must be some design,” “but he could see no clear object in the remarks. In an attempt to give Rahul the benefit of the doubt, Vohra conceded that the Babri Mosque remarks must have been meant to win over the Muslim vote, the Pakistan remarks to win over the Hindu vote, and the remarks regarding Mayawati to win back some of the Dalit vote. Vohra opined that Rahul “has been sacrificed to poor management and a poorly run UP political campaign.” “Intoning that UP was a poor choice for a political debut, Vohra claimed that Rahul has “done the best he could under the circumstances,” “and was the victim of an “out of touch” coterie of Congress insiders led by Minister of State for Commerce Jairam Ramesh”.

 

National Implications

 

9. (C) Exclaiming that Congress “has its back to the wall,” “Vohra noted that the latest rumor is that if Congress does badly in UP, several parties within the UPA could cross over to the opposition NDA coalition and bring on a “mid-term” poll. Vohra argued that Manmohan Singh would be a “poor choice” “to be the Congress standard-bearer if the party had to face the voters, but there is really no one else. Vohra dismissed speculation regarding an early move by Rahul into the Prime Minister slot saying that he is “not acceptable” “as a PM candidate, is “juvenile” and surrounded by deluded sycophants.

 

Congress Political Cadre is Demoralized

 

10. (C) On April 19 Congress leader and Gandhi family insider Nachiketa Kapoor informed Poloff that the party in UP was demoralized and did not expect to win more than 35 seats in the current election. Kapoor blamed the party itself for the mess, stating that the campaign was very badly run. Kapoor dismissed Rahul as ineffective and irrelevant, claiming that his road show consisted of a series of poorly attended events in rural areas, where he made almost no impression on the voters. He predicted that Rahul’s participation would have no effect on the electoral outcome, although his office continued to insist that Congress will win up to 80 seats. Kapoor had just returned from campaigning in Allahabad and maintained that Congress workers “on the ground” “had concluded that the party was “losing everywhere.”

 

The Dynasty Dying Nasty

 

11. (C) Kapoor was adamant that Rahul’s elliptical statements were spontaneous and off the cuff. Rahul’s speechwriter has reportedly confirmed that the remarks were unscripted and that Rahul refuses to use remarks drafted for him. Opining that Rahul is “out of touch,” Kapoor noted that he has “no close friends or advisors,” “and that his own staff keeps him ““at arm’s length” as he is “arrogant and rude and doesn’t accept guidance from anyone.”  Kapoor exclaimed that Rahul “has no future, no talent for politics and will never be PM, as he has done nothing for the past three years.” Kapoor pointed out that even if Congress wanted to make Rahul PM, it would not be able to do so, as it does not have an absolute majority and must rely on its coalition partners to stay in power. Implying that Rahul’s moment has already come and gone, Kapoor claimed that Congress insiders are predictably pinning their hopes on yet another of Nehru Dynasty member, Rahul’s sister Priyanka, and are waiting for the day when she will enter politics.

 

Comment: Son Set

 

12. (C) Rahul’s dismal performance on the campaign trail has narrowed the party’s already limited options in UP. While some in Congress are pinning their hopes on a “hung Parliament” “that will result in President’s rule, that is looking increasingly unlikely. To form the UP government, a coalition has to come up with a majority of at least 202 seats in the 403 member Legislative Assembly. As predicted, Mayawati’s BSP is surging. The best hope for Congress would be if she breaks all records and wins 170 seats or more. That would put her within striking distance of forming the government. As the largest party in UP, the governor would then give the BSP the first shot. In such an event, she would need Congress to make up some or all of the needed 30-35 seats. Congress sources claim that although the party would be a very junior partner in a government dominated by the authoritarian and unpredictable Mayawati, it would accept such a deal as it has “nothing to lose.” “Congress insiders argue that at least the hated BJP and SP would be kept out of power in Lucknow. In the event that the BSP does not cross 170, the BJP and SP would likely attempt to come together and form the government. While the ruling SP is getting plastered at the polls, it could manage to hold on to as many as 100 seats. Some of the lost SP seats are going to a resurgent BJP, which could win over 100 seats. Most dismiss the prospect of a BJP/BSP government, as prior experiments ended in dismal failure and lots of bad blood between the two parties.

 

13. (C) In any event, regardless of the outcome of the UP elections, Rahul has made an uneven entry into active politics. While crowds at his “road show” “events are often large, Rahul has not yet demonstrated that he has the charisma required to make it in Indian politics. Notwithstanding his gaffes, however, political commentators such as M.J. Akbar predict that Rahul Gandhi could replace Manmohan Singh as Prime Minister before the 2009 elections. Others, such as former MP (Janata) D.N. Patodia, predict that Sonia Gandhi will acknowledge that Rahul isn’t yet ready for prime time, and will put forward a malleable PM such as Home Affairs Minister Shiv Raj Patil. Grand old Congress leaders such as Pranab Mukherjee and Arjun Singh are seen as too independent for Sonia’s liking.

162458: Cash-for-votes ahead of confidence motion

Political horse-trading continued in anticipation of the special session of parliament to consider the confidence vote on July 21 followed by the vote itself on July 22. ……

Classified By: Charge D’Affaires Steven White for Reasons 1.4 (B and D)

 

1. (C) SUMMARY. Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon and his delegation departed for Vienna on July 17 to brief the 35 Board members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and another 19 members of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) on the U.S.-India Civil Nuclear Cooperation Initiative. In Delhi, government officials responded positively to suggestions about how to address concerns emerging from Vienna, particularly the need to begin negotiating an IAEA Additional Protocol and for the IAEA to circulate India’s (INFCIRC) already-public separation plan as an official IAEA document. Political horse-trading continued in anticipation of the special session of parliament to consider the confidence vote on July 21 followed by the vote itself on July 22. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani each plan to host a dinner for supporters on July 20; the parties will presumably have to chose one or the other. An estranged Congress Party MP and three Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MPs publicly stated their intention to vote against the UPA, leaving the government still clinging to a slim majority. Small parties representing collectively about 20 votes find themselves with generous suitors; one party chief has reportedly succeeded in having the Lucknow airport renamed after his father. The unrequited Left continued its anti-government rant, but showed signs of internal strain. Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee refused to resign despite pressure from within the Communist party to do so and has made it clear that he was not in favor of the Left voting with the opposition BJP against the government, a position that seems to have resonance among comrades disinclined to face early elections.

END SUMMARY.

 

Dueling Dinners Force Parties to Declare Loyalties

 

6. (SBU) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani each plan to host a dinner for supporters on July 20, the evening before the special parliamentary session begins on July 21. Media reported that Advani will use the dinner as a strategy session to field MPs to speak against the confidence motion. Advani will also reportedly meet the BJP’s National Democratic Alliance (NDA) supporters on July 17, including Chief Ministers of the states where NDA constituents are in power. Rajasthan Chief Minister Raje reportedly plans to skip the meeting, raising the ire of the BJP leadership.

 

7. (SBU) Prime Minister Singh’s dinner on July 20 will include the Congress Party’s new allies in the Samajwadi Party as well as other recent converts and fence-sitters from smaller parties. The Telegraph quoted a senior government source who said that PM Singh was “neither crunching numbers nor seeking daily briefings on the political sensex. His bottom line is clear.” “It also claimed that PM Singh was upset with the BJP for allegedly recanting on an “understanding” “that it would support the deal. The article concludes that if the government survives the July 22 vote, PM Singh’s priority would be to implement flagship social programs to thank his party for rallying behind him”.

 

Votes For Sale

 

8. (SBU) Behind the scenes, the Congress Party machine is working overtime. Sonia Gandhi reportedly plans to meet Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) leader Shibu Soren and Janata Dal Secular (JD-S) leader H.D. Deve Gowda. Retaining the support of JMM’s five seats and the JD-S’s three seats is reportedly vital to the UPA government’s strategy. In exchange for retaining the support of the three votes of the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD), the Congress Party has reportedly pledged its support to rename Lucknow’s Amausi airport after Chaudhary Charan Singh, father of RLD leader Ajit Charan Singh, who may also get a cabinet seat.

 

9. (C) On July 16, PolCouns met with Captain Satish Sharma, a Congress Party MP in the Rajya Sabha, a former Indian Airlines Pilot, and a close associate of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi considered to be a very close family friend of Sonia Gandhi. Sharma mentioned that he, as well as others in the party, was working hard to ensure that the UPA government wins the confidence vote on July 22. He said that the Prime Minister, Sonia Gandhi, and Rahul Gandhi were committed to the nuclear initiative and had conveyed this message clearly to the party. Sharma said that PM Singh and others were trying to work on the Akali Dal (8 votes) through financier Sant Chatwal and others, but unfortunately it did not work out. He mentioned that efforts to encourage Shiv Sena (12 votes) to abstain were on-going. While different Congress operatives were working on different groups of MPs, Sharma said that Rahul Gandhi was personally working Omar Abdullah’s Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (J&KNC), whose two MPs are inclined to vote in favor of the UPA. Sharma mentioned that he was also exploring the possibility of trying to get former Prime Minister Vajpayee’s son-in-law Ranjan Bhattacharya to speak to BJP representatives to try to divide the BJP ranks. He mentioned that if the party wins the trust vote, they would then prefer to go for national elections in February or March 2009, which would give the UPA time to control prices and bring down inflation.

 

10. (S) Sharma’s political aide Nachiketa Kapur mentioned to an Embassy staff member in an aside on July 16 that Ajit Singh’s RLD had been paid Rupees 10 crore (about $2.5 million) for each of their four MPs to support the government. Kapur mentioned that money was not an issue at all, but the crucial thing was to ensure that those who took the money would vote for the government. Kapur showed the Embassy employee two chests containing cash and said that around Rupees 50-60 crore (about $25 million) was lying around the house for use as pay-offs.

 

11. (S) Another Congress Party insider told PolCouns that Minister of Commerce and Industry Kamal Nath is also helping to spread largesse. “Formerly he could only offer small planes as bribes,” “according to this interlocutor, now he can pay for votes with jets.”

 

What If’s: No Vote or a UPA Defeat

 

12. (SBU) PM Singh appears to have opened the door to the Left to call off the vote, telling media on July 16 that the government had the numbers to prevail in the confidence vote and that it was “unfortunate” “that the special session had to be foisted upon parliament and distract the government from addressing urgent issues like inflation. PM Singh publicly acknowledged trying to get the BJP to support the nuclear initiative by reaching out to former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee, but Vajpayee reportedly deferred to opposition leader L.K. Advani to make the call.

 

13. (SBU) There are some signs that the GOI may decide to go ahead with the nuclear initiative even if it loses the confidence vote on July 22. Media quoted Rahul Gandhi on July 16 as saying, “I support the PM 100 percent on the nuke deal. We are going to win the trust vote, but even if the government falls, so be it.” “He also claimed the BJP was divided over the nuclear initiative, saying, “There are people in the BJP who support the deal and do not know why their party is opposing it.” “Rahul Gandhi also recalled how Left parties in the mid-1980s had stonewalled his father Rajiv Gandhi’s efforts to introduce computers in government offices and vision of a computerized India. Congress Party Chief Sonia Gandhi said in Andra Pradesh on July 17 that the government “will not compromise on the nuclear deal because it is in the national interest.”

 

Disagreements Among Comrades: Left Shows Signs of Strain

 

14. (SBU) The Left continued its rant against the government. The Community Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Polit Bureau groused that the Prime Minister’s Office set a “dangerous precedent” “by meeting industrialist Mukesh Ambani on July 14, during which Ambani reportedly offered help in securing Shiv Sena support for the UPA government. The CPI-M said the government’s rejection of the use of force against Iran by Israel was “timely,” “but that it would only be credible if the government were to cut military ties with Israel”.

 

15. (SBU) The Left has also begun to show signs of internal strain. CPI-M Polit Bureau member Sitaram Yechury told media on July 15 that the party erred in listing Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee among its members who withdrew support from the UPA government on July 8. Chatterjee said he does not want to step down as Speaker despite pressure from within the party to do so. He also wrote a letter to Prakash Karat making it clear that he was not in favor of the Left voting with the opposition BJP against the government. (Chatterjee has looked to the UPA government to help him keep his position as Speaker and appears to be rallying moderate CPI-M members disinclined to join their comrades in voting with their rival BJP against a government that they supported for several years.) Also on July 15, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh and two other SP leaders called for Chatterjee not to quit his post.

 

16. (SBU) Consulate Kolkata reported on the growing split within the CPI-M (reftel). Many CPI-M members, particularly Muslims, cannot fathom voting with the “communalist” BJP. A large group of West Bengal MPs do not want to bring down the government and are angry at Karat for his failed strategy. If the government falls, they fear the CPI-M could lose 10-15 seats in new elections based on unfavorable recent local election results. If the government survives, the Left will be embarrassed for having achieved nothing on the issues that are important to their constituents, few of whom care about the nuclear initiative. Though defection is a possibility, Communist Party discipline remains strong and members are unlikely to vote with the government.

SUBJECT: BJP LEADER REAFFIRMS US-INDIA COMMITMENT

Classified By: Charge Robert O. Blake, Jr., for Reasons 1.4 (B, D)

 

1. (C) Summary: BJP spokesman and former Commerce Minister Arun Jaitley warned us recently that the Modi controversy continues to fester among the party rank and file, who see the Chief Minister’s visa revocation as a personal attack on a leader of the party that began the transformation of US-India relations. One of several aspirants to direct the next generation of BJP leadership, Jaitley was otherwise upbeat on the US-India relationship, and quietly confident that the party would eventually find its feet. End Summary.

 

2. (C) In an May 6 meeting with the Charge and PolCouns, a relaxed and self-assured Arun Jaitley predicted that current BJP President LK Advani would lead for another two to three years, after which one of five next generation leaders (Jaitley among them) would take the reins. Dismissing the speculation about Advani’s successor as being no more relevant than predictions about Gordon Brown’s accession to power in the UK, Jaitley argued that the BJP remained a force to contend with in Indian politics, notwithstanding the party’s current public squabbling. Pressed on the question of Hindutva, Jaitley argued that Hindu nationalism “will always be a talking point” for the BJP. However, he characterized this as an opportunistic issue. In India’s northeast, for instance, Hindutva plays well because of public anxiety about illegal migration of Muslims from Bangladesh. With the recent improvement of Indo-Pak relations, he added, Hindu nationalism is now less resonant in New Delhi, but that could change with another cross-border terrorist attack, for instance on the Indian Parliament.

 

3. (C) Jaitley was upbeat on the US-India relationship, emphasizing that ties with the US are no longer a point of controversy in Indian politics. Citing his own situation as typical, Jaitley noted that he has several nieces and sisters living in the US, “and five homes to visit between DC and New York.” Despite this upbeat context, Jaitley was distressed about the US visa denial to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, complaining that he could not understand how the US could take such an action against the party that began the transformation of US-India relations. Charge explained the rationale and legal basis for the US decision. Jaitley agreed with the Charge’s point that Modi was a polarizing personality, but argued that it would have been better for the US to let the Chief Minister visit the US, where he would have attracted a few demonstrators and then nothing more would be said. Regardless of US explanations, Jaitley warned, the Modi decision has hurt the US reputation among BJP rank and file.

 

4. (C) Reflecting on several weeks spent in Bihar leading the BJP’s state election campaign, Jaitley expressed concern about growing gaps in the quality of governance across India. Virtually all new investment, he argued, is concentrated in the four southern states, two western states (Gujarat and Maharashtra) and “within 100 kilometers of Delhi.” He lamented the “Robin Hood” syndrome that prevails in Bihar, arguing that caste politics lend a “social sanction” criminalization of politics that drives away investment. Recalling helicopter flights over Bihar, Jaitley described an economic desert, with brick kilns constituting virtually the only form of industrial infrastructure. He also decried — but sympathized with — the mass exodus of Bihari professionals from that state to cities like Delhi and Mumbai, and to the ranks of the Indian Administrative Service.

 

5. (C) Putting on his hat as a former Commerce Minister, Jaitley confessed that the BJP’s opposition to a Value Added Tax (VAT) at the state level was based on a narrow political calculus, and predicted that the BJP states would adopt the VAT soon in order to protect their revenue streams. He gave the Congress government generally positive marks for its handling of economic policy issues, but focused on the contradictions inherent in the UPA coalition. Jaitley was relatively relaxed in response to the Charge’s pitch for opening of the Indian services sector. He agreed that legal services should be opened to foreign competition, noting that the performance of the Indian bar has begun to improve, even though the quality of judges suffers from a “Gandhian” mindset that leads to unreasonably low salaries. On retail, he argued that foreign competition should not seriously hurt the mom and pop stores that form a BJP constituency. However, he suggested that opening up to big retail chains like Wal-Mart should proceed slowly, since large Indian retailers are just now coming into their own.

 

6. (C) Comment: Although visibly pained by the Modi visa revocation, Jaitley was gracious and open throughout. He clearly values his personal and commercial connections to the US (several US corporates are legal clients). As the competition for BJP leadership heats up, Jaitley will enjoy the advantages of a telegenic personality and strong ties to the New Delhi establishment. However, as reflected in his remarks here about Hindutva, Jaitley’s credentials with the Sangh Parivar are weak, and he may not have what it takes to mobilize the BJP base.

Advani’s regret to cost BJP dear, help those with foreign bank accounts

Rustam
22 Feb 2011
BJP leader and former Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani on Friday took an extraordinary step and apologized to Congress president and UPA chairperson for the party-appointed task force which had alleged that she and her late husband (former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi) had accounts in Swiss banks. The BJP had appointed this task force to unravel the amount of black money stashed by Indians in foreign banks and suggest ways to bring it back to India. Advani tendered an unconditional apology in writing.

 

The letter he wrote to the Congress president regretted inclusion of her name and the name of her late husband in the report prepared by the task force after putting in some effort. The members of the task force were S. Gurumurthy, former IB director Ajit Doval, Prof R Vaidyanathan and advocate Mahesh Jethmalani. They had put the figure of money stashed in foreign banks at Rs 25 lakh crore. On February 1, the NDA leaders released a booklet “Indian Black Money Abroad in Secret Banks and Tax Havens” – the second report of the task force appointed by the BJP – at the residence of L.K. Advani!

 

Advani tendered his apology after the Congress president denied the allegations. The question is – who was Advani to tender the apology? He is not the president of the party. Nor is he the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha. The very fact that BJP president Nitin Gadkari was not in a position to take questions from reporters on this issue established that Advani wrote the letter on his own, thus sending a signal that the BJP is not interested in bringing the stashed away money back to India.

 

That Advani and not the party president, or Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, or Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley, wrote or said anything on the issue has created an impression that Advani perhaps has “entered into a deal” with those who have stashed black money in foreign banks, in order to hamper the campaign launched by the media against those involved in draining India’s wealth. One may or may not buy this argument, but the action has created a serious doubt in the minds of concerned Indians and rattled them.

 

An impression has also gained ground that Gadkari, who was appointed at the behest of the RSS as president of the BJP to stem the rot, end factionalism, and put the party which was in complete disarray back on the rails, has joined Advani’s bandwagon only to tell the RSS leadership that it should hold aloof and not poke its nose in party affairs.

 

To say this is not to suggest that no person should acknowledge his mistake and tender apology. If one acknowledges one’s mistake and rectifies it, it is something that deserves appreciation. Here that is not the question. The question is why Advani did it.

 

The fact of the matter is that Advani’s action has outraged many in the party, the party’s supporters and sympathizers, and the RSS top leadership. A well-known supporter of the BJP has condemned Advani in a private note, saying: “Now – to the Eternal Shame of the BJP – its prime-minister-in-waiting-for-all-eternity (read Kayamat Tak) has discredited the entire party position on Black Money with this unilateral action of a private apology. When (Congress president) sent the letter, it should have been made public, then discussed publicly and in party forums, and then dealt with. Who authorised this @%$ to shoot off an apology? I think Nitin Gadkari as party president owes an apology to the entire nation for this Brutus act.”

 

Not just this, the outraged BJP supporter has gone to the extent of putting forth a suggestion that reads: “It is high time that the party got its act together, reverted to its original constitution and abolished the illegal post of Chairman, NDA Parliamentary Party or whatever this Sleaze Ball is sitting over, and cut him to size. His personal appointments of cronies should also be revisited if the party expects to have a fighting chance in the inevitable looming polls.”

 

This is not the view of an ordinary BJP worker or supporter. This is the view of someone who has been shaping and educating the Indian public opinion for years, in order to defeat the negative forces wherever they are.

BHARATIYA JANATA PARTY (BJP)? BHARATIYA JINNAH PARTY (BJiP)? OR BHARATIYA SONIA MAINO (BSMP)PARTY!!!!

V. SUNDARAM I.A.S

If UPA II Government cannot ensure restitution of illicit finances of nation’s wealth held abroad, the battle cry of the Indian people on the streets of Hindustan will be “Singhasan khaali karo ke janataa aati hai”. The people of Egypt and Libya have already shown the way. Harold Laski, the immortal political scientist, wrote for all time when he declared: “A Constitution which cannot be constitutionally amended is an open invitation to a bloody revolution”.
——————————————————————————————
L.K.Advani has shocked all the Patriotic Citizens of India by sending the following letter to Sonia Gandhi on February 16, 2011. I am giving below the full text of this letter.
Dear Smt. Sonia ji,
On my return from Kolkatta last night I found your letter dated 15 February awaiting me.
I am happy that you have categorically denied the reports alluded to in the Task Force’s report on Black Money.  If these had been denied earlier, I am sure the Task Force would have factored in, the denial in its report.  Even so, I deeply regret the distress caused to you.
With best regards,
Yours sincerely,
( L.K. ADVANI )
The above letter of L.K. Advani dated 16-2-2011 was in prompt reply to Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino a.k.a Sonia Gandhi’s letter of 15-2-2011. I am giving below the full text of this ‘historic’ letter which will live in the annals of Sonia Gandhi Clan Literature.
—————————————————————————————-
SONIA GANDHI
10 Janpath, New Delhi 110011



February 15, 2011


Dear Shri Advani ji,

My attention has been drawn to a publication titled ‘Indian Black Money Abroad in Secret Banks and Tax Havens’ purporting to be a report submitted by a Task Force appointed by the Bharatiya Janata Party.
This so-called report contains reckless and baseless allegations against me and my family, including my late husband and my mother. These lies, energetically disseminated from time to time by sections of the media and interested parties have so far been treated by me with the contempt they deserve.
But I must let you know that I am surprised and disappointed to find a leader of your stature occupying important positions in the NDA and the BJP endorsing such scurrilous and malicious fabrications through their release at a function presided over by you.
Yours sincerely,



Sd. Sonia Gandhi

——————————————————————————————-
This politically blackmailing letter is a classic instance of an incongruous mix of contempt and complaint, totally devoid of ordinary human decency and courtesy. And yet L.K Advani (who to the best of my knowledge is not younger than the Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi!!) was so convulsed and so emotionally moved by the time-honoured Hindu notions of ‘Vasudeiva Kutumbakam’ that he felt morally constrained and ethically entrapped to express his ‘deep regret’ for ‘the distress caused’ to this Catholic imposter and usurper from Mafia’s Own Italy.
No responsible journalist or political analyst can miss the fact that the Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino has a deep and abiding contempt for solid facts or concrete truths when they stand in the way of her life-long occupation of dynastic politics committed to the undeclared political ideology of unabashed national brigandage and plunder! I am duty-bound as a freelance journalist to raise the following public issues:
I. – It is very clear from Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi’s letter to L.K. Advani cited above that she has not even bothered to read the Task Force Committee Report on Black Money. She has made no factual or detailed reference to this ‘so-called report’. According to innumerable press reports and media stories, it is common knowledge that she and her family members own more than 12 BILLION USD in various secret bank accounts in Tax havens abroad.
The BJP had appointed a Task Force Committee in 2009 (much before the Parliamentary Elections in May 2009) to investigate into the nature and extent of Black Money stashed away in secret Bank Accounts abroad, more particularly in Switzerland, by many Indian Businessmen, Indian Politicians and some so-called Prominent Citizens. Shri Gurumurthy, Chartered Accountant, Chennai, Shri Ajit Doval, former Director Intelligence Bureau, Delhi, Prof R.Vaidyanathan, Professor of Finance Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore and Shri Mahesh Jethmalani, Senior Advocate, Mumbai were the MEMBERS OF THIS TASK FORCE COMMITTEE.

This Task Force Committee Report was released to the Press before the Parliamentary Elections in 2009. The Sonia Congress Party had given an assurance to the electorate then to the effect that if voted to power, the UPA II Government would not hesitate to take stringent action against these Economic Terrorists and Offenders. Even after the formation of the new UPA II Government in May 2009 and even after the President of India had made a Statement in the Lok Sabha in June 2009 to the effect that the Union Government would take all necessary measures to deal with these black money holders and hawala operators, no positive action has been taken till date by the Government of India to unearth this accumulated wealth kept in secret Bank Accounts in Tax Havens abroad.

The Task Force Committee Report of 2009 has been again UPDATED with the latest information/facts by the same 4 member Committee which has just completed its work on 31 January 2011. This latest revised Report has brought out some shocking facts about the Himalayan extent of Black Money stashed away in secret Tax Havens abroad.

II Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi’s letter to L.K Advani cited above clearly shows that she has contempt for the Indian nation, her people, her Constitution and Judiciary. She is only concerned with two things: one, maintaining her dynastic control over India through the Congress party and two, protecting her ill-gotten wealth stashed away abroad. It will be too much to expect THE MOST VENAL AND MOST CORRUPT Italian Firangi Memsahib to be concerned at all about the paramount public need for the most stringent action to be taken by the Government of India (Firangi Memsahib’s fiefdom!) for the restitution of the Nation’s wealth stashed away abroad to the SOVEREIGN PEOPLE OF BHARAT. If UPA II Government cannot ensure RESTITUTION OF NATION’S WEALTH HELD IN ILLICIT SECRET BANK ACCOUNTS ABROAD, the battle cry of the Indian people on the streets of Hindustan will be “Singhasan khaali karo ke janataa aati hai”. The people of Egypt and Libya have already shown the way. Harold Laski, the immortal political scientist, wrote for all time when he declared: “A Constitution which cannot be constitutionally amended is an open invitation to a bloody revolution”.

III. It is clear that the FIRANGI MEMSAHIB ANTONIA MAINO A.K.A SONIA GANDHI has NOT at all read what she decries as the “so-called report” of the Task Force and has, as usual, NOT refuted the specific, authenticated information provided therein. There is NO mention whatsoever in Sonia Gandhi’s self-proclaiming Italian mafia contempt dripping epoch-making ‘epistle’ to L.K. Advani about her widely-reported secret numbered accounts in tax havens abroad and yet, for mysterious reasons till now unknown but by no means unknowable, it had a soothing mellowing thawing effect on the human person and political  personage of L.K Advani.

IV. Why is the Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi not asking her crooked timber in bonded labour Kapil Sibal to give a legal notice of defamation to L.K Advani? She must be keeping silent because she knows that she kissed the dust in two Courts of Law in the United States two years ago after filing grandiloquent defamation cases as advised by Kapil Sibal, the greatest legal luminary in the history of law, against the Indian-American Intellectuals Forum (IAIF) three years ago. Her nominated servile proxies have also lost five defamation cases in India filed against the redoubtable, indomitable, indefatigable, irrepressible and public-spirited National Leader like Dr Subramanian Swamy during the last few years.

AFTER FILING IMAGINARY DEFAMATION CASES AGAINST HER KNOWN POLITICAL RIVALS THROUGH HER PAID PROXIES, THE FIRANGI MEMSAHIB ANTONIA MAINO GANDHI CAREFULLY CHOOSES TO ABSCOND FROM ALL COURTS OF LAW BECAUSE SHE IS MORTALLY SCARED OF BEING CROSS-EXAMINED BY DR SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY IN ANY COURT OF LAW, WHETHER IN INDIA OR ABROAD. She thinks she is above the RULE OF LAW AND THE LAW OF THE CONSTITUTION.

V. Why is the Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino using the smoke screen of the Congress Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Congress Bureau of Insinuation (CBI), Congress Bureau of Instigation (CBI) and Congress Bureau of Intimidation (CBI) to reopen the Babri Masjid case against L.K Advani and other BJP leaders by taking up the matter on appeal to the Supreme Court? What is the significance of the timing of this Appeal to the Supreme Court filed by the ‘CONGRESS’ (by no means Central!) Bureau of Investigation (CBI), one day after the despatch of Firangi Memsahib’s blackmailing letter to L.K.Advani? Even a bloody fool can see the subterranean operational connection between No.10 Janpath, in New Delhi and the Office of the Congress Bureau of Investigation/Intimidation (CBI) in New Delhi!! Thus we can see that in the UPA II Government of Firangi Memsahib there is an illicit informal marriage between the politics of crime and the Congress (not Central) Bureau of Intimidation Crime (CBI Crime!?).

VI. Is the Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino unaware of the fact that her Christist nominee Chief Injustice Balakrishnan is no longer holding the  office of the Chief Injustice of the Supreme Court of India? She can no longer command her tailor-made orders in respect of all her patently baseless and illegal plaints from the highest Court of Law in India! I have made this point clear in point VII below

VII. Gurumurthy (Chartered Accountant, Chennai) The Convenor of the Task Force Committee on Black Money Held In Secret Accounts Abroad has categorically stated that he and the three other professional Members of that Committee Shri Ajit Doval, former Director Intelligence Bureau, Delhi, Prof R.Vaidyanathan, Professor of Finance Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore and Shri Mahesh Jethmalani, Senior Advocate, Mumbai fully and firmly stand by their Report. He has made it clear that they are most willing to face any legal challenges emanating from any quarter in regard to the factual contents and the legal basis of the shocking revelations presented in their well researched and documented Report.

VIII. Against the background of the public issues raised by me above, it is rather surprising that L.K Advani should have sent a letter expressing his ‘regret’ without simultaneously demanding stern and immediate action by the UPA Government against black money holders in secret bank accounts abroad as proposed by the Four-Member Task Force Committee in their latest Report given on 31st January 2011. It should be remembered that the Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi is holding a Cabinet-rank position in her official capacity as the Chairperson of National Advisory Council. She is the de-facto Prime Minister. She is the real Executive Head. The de-jure Prime Minister (Prime Minion) Dr.Manmohan Singh is only a nominal head; a titular head.

Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi’s threatening, blackmailing, bluffing, blustering and bullying letter to L.K Advani should have been replied to by him in the same manner as Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) addressed Herr Hitler (1889-1945), the Nazi Dictator during the dark days of World War II: “We shall grudge no toil, count no cost, withhold no sacrifice, seek no sordid gain and fear no foe. Neither the sudden attacks of the enemy nor the long drawn out exertions of vigilance shall wear us down. ”

It can now be asked why am I using the nomenclature Bharatiya Jinnah Party (BJP) as a part of the title of this article. The answer is simple. L.K Advani visited Pakistan in 2005. After this visit, he described Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Islamic terrorist and Islamic destroyer of United India as a “great and secular” leader. Jinnah’s specially chosen KASAB of that generation for perpetrating Hindu Genocide in Calcutta City on DIRECT ACTION DAY in August 1946 was Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy, the Premier of Bengal at that time. Thousands of Hindu men were slaughtered and mutilated, thousands of Hindu women were gang-raped and sold into slavery under the direct personal and official supervision of that Islamic marauder H.S Suhrawardy. Suhrawardy showed his total and undivided ideological, political and religious allegiance to Mohammad Ali Jinnah who was the President of the Muslim League at that time. Mohammad Ali Jinnah was the Chief Architect of Pakistan. He became the first President of Pakistan later. That savage Islamic marauder let loose Hindu Genocide both in West Pakistan and in East Pakistan. Hindus who constituted 20% of the population in West Pakistan now constitute less than 1% of the population today. Likewise the Hindus who constituted 30% of the population in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) now constitute less than 7% of the population today. All this is owing to the good Islamic work of that ‘Great man who was secular’ Mohammad Ali Jinnahthe pseudo-Hindutva heartbeat of L.K Advani!!!

In this context, I would be failing in my public duty if I do not quote my own words from an earlier article that I had written immediately after L.K Advani’s visit to Pakistan on 26th June 2005:

“Advani having tasted power after a long wait for more than seven decades, decided to join the ranks of Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. And therefore he came out with his historic statement that ‘Jinnah was a great man who was secular’. HE HAS FORGOTTEN THAT WHILE WE CAN DO VERY LITTLE WITH FAITH, WE CAN DO NOTHING WITHOUT IT. FAITH IS A STIFFENING PROCESS, A SORT OF MENTAL TORCH. IN THIS SENSE IT ALWAYS IMPLIES THE DISBELIEF OF A LESSER FACT IN FAVOUR OF A GREATER. This kind of unshakeable faith in a grander and vaster mission of Hindutva was preached and practiced by Hegdewar and Golwalkar. This sort of faith formed the basis for the creation of the BJP in 1980. But all this has been given a death blow in one stroke by Advani today.”

“A relatively coherent system of values, beliefs, or ideas shared by some social group and often taken for granted as natural or inherently true is the real basis for the ideology of Hindutva. In our over anxiety to corner positions in the world of murky politics, we cannot vote for pseudo-Hindutva to bring down the bogus regime of pseudo-secularism. The common people of India who practise Hinduism as a way of life are in a quandary today. They have to choose between two leading species of the spurious genus called ‘SECULARISM’——THE PSEUDO-SECULARISM OF SONIA GANDHI AND THE JINNAH-SECULARISM OF ADVANI.”

“The question of questions is who created Pakistan!!! Not ‘secular Muslim’ Jinnah. Not ‘secular Mahatma’ Gandhi. Not definitely the Hindu Maha Sabha. Was it Nehru who drove Jinnah to despair by being in a great hurry to occupy the post of Prime Minister to be left as an heirloom for the Nehru cum pseudo-Gandhi clan? Advani has cleverly removed the sails of pseudo-secularism from the flagship of the Congress Party by rechristening his Party as the BHARATIYA JINNAH PARTY!! JANATA FOR JINNAH!! JINNAH FOR JANATA!!

Finally, I have to answer one more query. Why have I given the part title of Bharatiya Sonia Maino Party to this article? Here again the answer is simple. By sending a knee-jerk response regret letter to the Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi within twenty four hours — where no such reply was called for in the larger National or public interest — L.K Advani has clearly shown that he too bows to the sordid and corrupt economic stranglehold of Firangi Memsahib’s total control over Indian polity. His bowing to her political authority today is only a committed continuance of his sordid track record as Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of India for Five full years from 1999 to 2004. Atal Behari Vajpayee and L.K Advani gave a death blow to India’s dignity as a Sovereign Nation by their dogged refusal to accomplish the following public tasks when they wielded political and administrative power in the Government of India during that period.

A. By not disqualifying the citizenship of Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino a.k.a Sonia Gandhi on available, known, valid and legal grounds of fraud, concealment of facts, willful and repeated perjury and such formidable Sonia-eminent qualifications which would have landed any other lesser mortal in prolonged incarceration in Tihar jail or elsewhere, with no prospect of release.

B. Keeping calculated silence and maintaining masterly inaction over the Bofors bribe issue and allowing both Quattrochchi and Firangi Memsahib Antonia Maino Gandhi to retain their ill-gotten Billions in wealth abroad under the watchful, paternal and ever benevolent care of the Vajpayee Government. “The quality of bribe is not strained; It is twice-Blessed. It blesseth her that gives and him that takes.”

C. Rescuing Rahul Gandhi and his scantily-clad Columbian girlfriend to escape from the clutches of the U.S FBI when they were arrested by American authorities at Boston Ariport in 2002. ‘Scam Bhushan’ Brajesh Mishra was the ‘hero’ who was responsible for saving the private honour of the Sonia Gandhi clan, with total contempt for the honour and dignity of the Indian Nation as a whole. For this act of L.K Advani-sanctioned national perfidy, Brajesh Mishra has been conferred the Award of Padma Vibhushan by the Italian colonial UPA II Government in New Delhi, today.
