LS Speaker should order a probe into Maharashtra Sadan incident

The Aam Aadmi Party demands that the Lok Sabha Speaker should immediately order a time-bound probe into the highly condemnable, shameful and inhuman act committed by Shiv Sena MPs inside Maharashtra Sadan.

The country is outraged at the shameful incident and is in a state of shock, and the Lok Sabha Speaker is duty-bound to prevent the institution of Parliament from being disgraced by such MPs who neither understand their responsibility as public representatives, nor do they have any respect for the right to religious freedom of citizens of the country.

There are precedents before the Speaker to set-up a special parliamentary committee and ask for a report within a definite time frame, following which exemplary action should be taken against these MPs. The Indian Express news story now stands corroborated by video evidence, which leaves no doubt that the Shiv Sena MPs, drunk with arrogance of power, resorted to inhuman behavior against a catering supervisor.

Delhi Police must not yield to political pressure in NE youth murder case

News reports appearing in some newspapers suggest that one of the accused arrested in the case is a close relative of a prominent Delhi BJP leader and since the Delhi Police reports directly to union home ministry, therefore the apprehension of undue influence to dilute the case cannot be ruled out. What is more disturbing is that BJP leaders are already giving statements to show the gruesome incident as a case of road rage, which is completely uncalled for, since the case is at investigation stage.

Complaint of money laundering of US $ 750 million by Anil Ambani group

Prashant Bhushan's Complaint of money laundering of US $ 750 million by Anil Ambani group

I am writing this complaint to the SIT on black money constituted pursuant to the orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. This complaint is regarding the huge money laundering involving the Anil Ambani Group of Companies that the SIT ought to investigate and prosecute.

We all know that the CBI has filed chargsheet in the 2G spectrum scam case against Anil Ambani controlled Reliance companies and three senior Reliance executives for creating a benami company called Swan Telecom through a maze of companies. CBI has stated that Reliance created Swan by transferring money for the purchase of its equity shares and about 1000 crore worth of preference shares. Reliance was ineligible for applying for obtaining 2G spectrum, so it created its front company of Swan.

According to the CBI chargesheet, this Swan Telecom was later transferred to Shahid Balwa and Vinod Goenka in 2007, and was awarded telecom license and 2G spectrum in January 2008. Both Balwa and Goenka then transferred Rs 200 crores from their company DB Reality to the family of DMK President and their Kalignar tv channel.  A few relevant pages of the CBI chargesheet are annexed as Annexure A. The SIT can obtain the full copy of the chargesheet from CBI/ED to get the complete picture. Read More
