1 Comment

Nira Radia the millionaire lobbyist who became a public figure overnight as tapes leaked to her phone conversations were printed by the mass media has revealed sordid details about the politician businessmen nexus.In the chargesheet presented by the CBI to the Supreme Court she has revealed the multi billion dollar realty company DB Realty is a front for Sharad Pawar and controlled by him.This hardly comes as a surprise as powerful Agri Minister Pawar has been linked to a number of corruption scandals like the Lavasa Scandal,2G Telecom Scam,IPL Scam etc.Note DB Realty CEO has been directly implicated in the transfer of bribe giving to Raja the former Telecom Minister in exchange for a Telecom License at dirt cheap prices.It is a tribute to the power of Pawar that despite such massive circumstantial evidence against him and his family,there has been no court case or police charges against him.Note a number of big companies in India are known to be secretly owned and controlled by powerful politicians.Not that politicians don’t own  billion dollar businesses openly and use their political muscle to further their own interests in a blatant manner.

Niira Radia links Sharad Pawar to DB Realty

“I state that as per the general perception in Mumbai as well as outside, DB Realty is directly or indirectly controlled by Mr. Sharad Pawar and his family members,” Ms. Radia’s statement said. She also said that Mr. Pawar “might have pursued” with former Union Telecom Minister A. Raja the issue of granting Unified Access Service licences for Swan Telecom and Anil Ambani’s Reliance Communications.

Ms. Radia’s statement also mentions a conversation with a journalist in which he tells her about “some money paid to Mr. Raja in London as well as to Mr. Karunanidhi for favouring Swan Telecom and Reliance Communications.” But here too, Ms. Radia states that she did not have any knowledge of “such transactions.”

Nira Radia has also revealed how the Tata Group was pressured by Raja and his associates to grant them favors.Chandolia a key aide wanted jobs in TCS the biggest Indian IT company and a Jagaur dealership.Note the Tata Group bought Landrover Jagaur recently.While Ratan Tata has said that he never acted unethically,the 2G Telecom Scam no doubts proves that Tata Group did not act 100% unethically if not illegally.Don’t know why the Tata Group donated equipment to a hospital in Raja’s constituency instead of hundreds of other deserving hospitals in the country.

Jaguar dealership in wishlist of Raja aide, Radia tells CBI

From evincing interest in a Jaguar car dealership to a platform for Kalaignar TV on Tata Sky to a job with Tata Consultancy Services. These were some of the many favours that R K Chandolia, personal secretary to then Telecom Minister A Raja, sought from the Tatas during his conversations with her, corporate lobbyist Niira Radia has claimed in her statement to the CBI.
