Energy at the Grassroots: The Business Resource Groups are making a difference!


Energy at the Grassroots: The Business Resource Groups are making a difference!
by Anjali Reddy, Director, Internal Communications
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in the U.S. because of two important events: the first Japanese immigrants arrived in the U.S. America on May 7, 1843 and the transcontinental railroad, built by many Chinese laborers, was completed on May 10, 1869.
At a celebration on May 8in Lake Forest, Grainger’s Asian Pacific Islander (API) BRG highlighted the API culture and heard from senior leaders, including Mike Pulick, SVP and President, Grainger International; Laura Brown, SVP, Communications and Investor Relations and Executive Sponsor of the API BRG; and Joseph High, SVP and Chief People Officer. Doe Kittay, Vice President, Customer Service and President, API BRG, hosted the event and highlighted the BRG’s mission and wins. The event was webcast to team members across the US and Acklands-Grainger (AGI).
“It was great to see the importance our leaders place on inclusion and what it means for us as a global company,” said Jigisha Bhatt, Program Manager, GIS Brand, Inventory Management.
“All the BRGs provide team members with leadership opportunities and help foster professional growth and multi-cultural understanding,” said Jaqui Robertson, Senior Director, Inclusion and Diversity. “While they were launched in the U.S., we are committed to understanding what makes sense for international teams as well.”
The BRG’s have certainly been active and many efforts are focused on team member development.
The Generational BRG (GBRG) recently hosted an Individual Development Planning (IDP) workshop. “The company is increasingly focused on Talent Excellence and having an IDP can help drive professional and personal growth,” says Al Johnson, Inventory Management Brand Strategy Manager and President, GBRG. “While IDP conversations are taking place between managers and their teams, the BRGs offer another venue for learning about them with peers.” The GBRG is targeting 500 participants this year.

India for sale by Corrupt Traitor Congress.

Do you know that there is a country up for sale? Do you know that its finance, agriculture and retail sectors are being put ‘on the market’?

Perhaps you are already aware of this due to various media reports. But then again, maybe you are not because it’s all being carried out behind closed doors in Brussels.

The EU-India Free Trade Agreement (FTA), something that could fundamentally restructure Indian society and impact the lives of hundreds of millions, is being negotiated ‘on the behalf of the public’ by politicians on both sides who are champions of the type of economic liberalisation that has already been responsible for bankrupting many Western economies.

Negotiations began in 2007, covering a wide range of areas, including various goods, products and services, as well as investment rules, government procurement; and intellectual property rights. After 16 rounds of talks, the issues are still being fine tuned. ‘Developed’ countries are resorting more and more to these types of bilateral trade agreements with individual developing countries because they want to continue to push their free trade agenda that was rejected by developing countries at the World Trade Organisation.

The EU-India FTA essentially represents the demands of big business in the West and results from their strategic hegemony over government bureaucracies and politicians. With Western economies in crisis, India represents potential ripe pickings for transnational corporations’ never ending compulsion for profit.

Kavaljit Singh of the Madhyam research institute notes that the EU wants to export its heavily subsidised dairy products to India (1). The Indian government has encouraged the co-operative model in the dairy sector with active policy protection. It therefore makes little sense that dairy trade will be opened up to unfair competition from subsidised European exports under the FTA. According to RS Sodhi, managing director of the country’s largest milk cooperative, Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation, the FTA will rob the vibrant domestic dairy industry and the millions of farmers that are connected to it from their rightful access to a growing market within India.

The EU has an overproduction problem in the dairy sector and is looking to dump its surplus. By dumping products in other countries, producer prices and incomes there become depressed. India’s dairy sector is mostly self sufficient and employs about 90 million people, a majority of whom are 75 million women. The sector is a lifeline for small and marginal farmers, landless poor and a significant source of income for millions of families.

Although the Indian government is saying that the dairy sector will be protected, the EU is lobbying hard to open up the sector. S Kannaiyan of the South Indian Coordination Committee of Farmers movements wonders if the government can be trusted. It’s a fair point, given its obsession with foreign investment and neo-liberalism.

In general, profits for EU companies could be huge if they can dump their products in India and permanently displace local farmers and producers. In the name of ‘free trade’, the EU wants India to cut import duties, but will not alter its own massive subsidies to its agribusiness and farm sector, which means that Indian farmers will not be able to compete with EU agribusiness. Yudhvir Singh of the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) says that free trade is supposed to be trade between equals, but such free trade pacts are on a completely unequal footing.

The FTA also seeks better protection for European biotechnology companies in the form of stronger intellectual property rights. On its blog, the BKU notes that this will allow European biotech firms to sell their seeds in India at any price they wish, get royalties from Indian farmers and deprive Indian farmers from saving or exchanging seeds. Indian farmers are already in debt, committing suicide en masse and suffering from the failure of expensive GMOs and unaffordable private seeds.

The EU is also demanding the liberalisation of the retail sector and is attempting to facilitate the entry of European agro-processing and retail gaints like Carrefour and Tesco, which could threaten the livelihoods of small retailers and street vendors. Nandini Jairam of the Karnataka farmers’ movement argues that the entry of such retail giants will be terrible for farmers because they will monopolise the whole food chain from procurement to distribution. In effect, farmers will be at the mercy of such large companies as they will have the power to set prices and also will not be interested to buy small quantities from small producers.

Under the FTA there are also plans to liberalise investment provisions, financial services and banking, whereby European banks and finance companies can enter the Indian market. According to the BKU, investors from the EU will get preference over resources like land, coastal areas and water rather than local people. Such provisions could serve to facilitate takeovers of farm land and conversion from food crops to export oriented cash crops.

At a time when countries across the world are reeling under a financial crisis caused by private banks, regulation and not liberalisation is needed. The proposal to liberalise the banking and insurance sectors is taking place in a world already ravaged by the criminality of the finance sector and which, according to Kavaljit Singh, by providing greater market access to crisis-ridden European banks, could potentially weaken an otherwise stable banking system in India.

Moreover, according to Singh, measures on investment could see the Indian government sued by multinational companies for billions of dollars in private arbitration panels outside of Indian courts if national laws, policies, court decisions or other actions are perceived to interfere with their investments.

Conclusion

At the heart of this whole debate is the issue of national sovereignty – or, to put it another way, self determination, self sufficiency and the nurturing of local democracy and economies in order that local people have control over their own lives and futures. The EU-India FTA appears to sound the death knell for such notions.

Since the passing of Margaret Thatcher, much has been written about the impact of the types of neo-liberal policies that she championed, not least in terms of them leading to the current crisis being experienced by Western economies. The pro-globalisation corporate interests that backed Thatcher helped destroy the post-1945 Keynesian consensus and tip the balance in favour of elite interests. This subsequently led to the depression or stagnation of wages and thus demand. The profits accrued from the subsequent debt-bubble Western economies of the 1990s and onwards could not be sustained, and now, facing crisis at home, places like India represent rich pickings for Western capitalism.

Call it ‘globalisation’ if you must, but let’s call it for what it is: imperialism. In an effort to maintain profit margins, elite concerns are going abroad to plunder public assets, exploit human labour and trample over local economies and communities. The worst thing is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Once India’s political leaders began to place emphasis on ‘deregulation’ and cede power to ‘the market’, the green light was given for transnationals to hollow out Indian society.

Farmers and trade unions in India, via the alliance called the Anti FTA front, have written 872 letters to important officials, organisations and political parties about the FTA. Rakesh Tikait of the BKU argues that, although there are serious impacts on food security and the livelihood security of millions of farmers and small retailers, farmers haven’t even been informed nor consulted about the FTA.

Praveen Khandelwal, Secretary General of Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) states that India should not legally commit to policies under this FTA. He believes that the government cannot seal this issue at the behest of EU while a national debate is still ongoing on the subject. It begs the question: are we to witness democracy being sidelined in the blind pursuit of a corporate driven agenda? It seems so (2).

It begs another question too: where is the logic in handing the thieves the key to your home?

Owaisi – the blue eyed monster of India


This article is produced here from a Blogger friend Agniveer as written.

Owaisi – the blue eyed monster of India
Jan 08, 2013 03:44 pm | Agniveer Agni
They say that the custom of worshipping Satan is as old as worship of God. Most religious scriptures state that the clout of Evil is never to be underestimated. In fact most mythologies or prophecies from all religions have the same pattern – There was (will be) a powerful Evil. Call it Satan, Rakshas, Antichrist, Goliath or Dajjal. He was (will be) very powerful and made (make) lives of people hell. Yet he would have a great fan following and no one would dare stand in front of him. Everyone would try to appease him so as to not face his wrath. Fear is the Key! This would continue for decades and centuries. Finally, the superhero – an avatar, or Holy Spirit, or Prophet, or Imam or a divinely inspired soul comes that destroys the Evil. Ironically, the entry of the superhero is always too late to be of any help for those innumerable ones who already got trampled by the Evil in the previous decades or centuries.

Same seems to be the case with India. We seem to be perennially waiting for the superhero for ages who would get us out of the shameless mess that surrounds us and destroys the contemporary Evil. I have heard that more than 100 generations of my forefathers were trampled in this wait and no superhero ever came. Meanwhile the Evil kept changing faces, kept spreading all around like stench coming from garbage pile in Dharavi and infecting all. It would keep creating new demons by turning each infected one into a new demon. And then it becomes difficult to pinpoint who the real Evil is.

And since no superhero is expected to come in near future, the politicians among us appease the Evil, the diplomats put a diplomatic silence on their lips and the rest of us turn a blind eye. What more can you expect from a society that could not even help a dying rape victim on road for an hour and now is shouting protest slogans to hide the hollowness eating us! Yes I am referring to the gang-rape case of Delhi that exposed everyone – the society, the police, the politicians, the media, the celebrities, the intellectuals, the aam-aadmi – and brought us face to face with our naked shamelessness.

But that is not the focus of this article. The focus is an equally shameless act by a criminal MLA conducted in open that was meekly accepted by the spineless intelligentsia of the nation as a natural reaction to so-called Hindu fundamentalism! I am referring to the one hour speech by a small-time Hyderabad MLA with criminal background who made the most insulting remarks on nation, its majority and its police ever by any politicians. On top of that, while his thousands of supporters waved the green flags, he openly challenged the establishment to dare to take action against him.

I recall that a progeny of a “royal” family of ruling party who is considered a black sheep for 2 generations, allegedly made a vague but seemingly violent statement without naming any person or community. He was promptly arrested and put in prison. He had then said that: “If a hand rises against Hindus, he will cut that hand.”

I was impressed by the sensitivity and alertness of my nation’s establishment and media, that took no chances in punishing him and sending a message that even vague indirect references to violence of any sort are not permitted in this secular sensitive nation.

And here is Akbaruddin Owaisi – the erstwhile alliance partner of the ruling party – who openly called police and security forces eunuch. And aggressively threatens, “If these eunuch be removed for 15 minutes, 25 crore Muslims would wipe off 100 crore Hindus.” He did not stop at that. He abused Hindu Gods and Goddesses and abused India. And then gave his blanket assurance to all his hooligans to protect them when they take law in their hands. The uneducated MLA who does not know difference between cow and antelope (Neel gai), appealed to all Muslims to kill cows defying law because that is sacred to Hindus.

And after that rousing speech in front of a crowd of thousands of fanatics, he went out to London in a royal fashion. Until a local citizen dared to file a case against him, the government, the police, the politicians, the media – no one found a reason to take this insult of nation and its majority by a sitting MLA as an issue of treason or inciting communal harmony. A few tweets did express some meek dissatisfaction and a few channels did cover the report as a regular duty. Almost all blamed “Hindu fundamentalists” for this!

I wonder why no one thought of blaming “Islamic fundamentalism” for Varun Gandhi’s speech in same league?

And when he returned back to India after his royal visit, he refused to surrender despite non-bailable charges. And no one could dare to force him into arrest. He growled, “I need 4 days to think over the arrest issue.” And the establishment said, “Your wish is our command!”

The only reason I can attribute to this all-permeating impotency is that perhaps Akbaruddin Owaisi is the new face of the demon. The new blue-eyed monster of this nation. In fact by displaying this shameless cowardice, the government, the media and everyone else are proving his claims to be true – “That all of them are Naamard (impotent) and even a crore impotent can do nothing worthwhile”

He said openly, “He would ensure that world fears him.” So the politicians appease and the diplomats remain tight-lipped. Who dare face the wrath of the Evil! When Evil came in form of the murderous Akbar 500 years ago, we worshipped him. How can we make an exception for the new-age Akbar! After all who knows to what extent the terror-links of a person, who dares abuse India in front of Indians, go to. Who knows what the sources of his lavish lifestyle are! Who knows why he was shot by a rival gang of Mohammad Pehalwan! Why take risk. Let us instead blame the fictitious “Hindu fundamentalists” who are neither in any Most Wanted List of any country, nor have any organized group like Al Qaeda or Lashkar-e-Taiyeba and hence pose zero risk. After all, the statements of a few aged sentimental “so-called Hindutva” leaders, who can offer nothing more than empty rhetorics to which no one listens, can be stretched out of context and linked with a random spurt of riots that happened more than 10 years ago in Gujarat to blame everything on the non-existent “Hindu fundamentalist”!

This habit of the spineless diplomats (media, politicians, intellectuals) is most stunning to me. To link everything to Hindu fundamentalism. I just don’t understand if they don’t feel any embarrassment making such lame arguments. The point is simple – if some so-called Hindu fundamentalist terrorises or kills or loots or incites people for violence, by all means, please arrest him. It was exactly on this logic that Varun Gandhi was arrested, Sadhvi Pragya was arrested. I do not know how solid the evidence were. But no media house or secular party tried to defend them citing their alleged deeds to be a reaction to “Islamic fundamentalism”.

But in case a Modi wins peaceful elections in Gujarat, blame it on “Hindu fundamentalism”. If Hindu passengers are burnt in a train, blame it on their “Hindu fundamentalism”. If Owaisi abuses Hindus and Hindustan, blame it on “Hindu fundamentalism”! I can explain this by nothing except what Owaisi said in his inflammatory speech: “Fear is the key”!

The Delhi rape incident made me ashamed to core for being an Indian. And this silent surrender to open terrorism and insult of country by a government representative takes my shame to an all new level. It brings even more shock when I heard that a rising leader of an emerging political party that made fight against corruption its main plank, telephoned a TV Channel to persuade it against showing a program against this speech of Owaisi. No leader of any secular party came forward to condemn it without linking to so-called Hindu fundamentalism. No one took to streets to demand arrest of this elected terrorist. No one threatened the withdraw support from government for shielding a hate-monger despite non-bailable arrest warrant. No one dared to say that death threat to majority of the country and insult of motherland are at least as serious issues as that of financial corruption. No spiritual guru questioned this abuse of Hindu Gods and Goddesses as well as Hindustan by a government representative.

And the greatest victims of misdeeds of these evils who sometimes come as Zakir Naik, sometimes as Osama and sometimes as Akbaruddin Owaisi are the common Muslims. By pretending to represent all Muslims, they bring bad name to all of them. Such speeches bring every Muslim under scanner. Radical Islam has tortured Muslims more than anyone else. And somehow the evil of radical Islam refuses to die. Rarely is any powerful voice heard and highlighted from Muslim community that condemns this terrorism. If a voice gets strong, it is silenced by the same cartel of terrorists. Many in the clergy give silent support to these terror-mongers. Thus a Zakir or an Owaisi are able to brainwash the upcoming youth among Muslims. They are told that all their sufferings are due to injustice meted out by Hindus. They are taught that Hindus killed them, looted them, discriminated against them, raped them and that is why Muslims are the least progressive society.

Very smartly, they would refuse to also highlight that 10000 times more Muslims are killed in Muslim nations or by Muslims than that ever in any unfortunate Hindu-Muslim riot. There are no Hindus in Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, Somalia to dominate Muslims. But still mosques are bombed, innocents are killed, rape incidents are highest. The culprits are so-called Muslims themselves. Actually the very same gang of radical Muslims.

They would not tell these gullible youths that Arabs don’t even consider Muslims of sub-continent as better than slaves and discrimination is official. For them Muslim is only one who is an Arab. And hence sects like Sufis, Shias and Ahmadiyas are worse than Kafirs for them. And outside this Arab, Muslims of all sects (including Shias, Ahmadiyas and Sufis) are safest and most respectfully treated in India compared to any other Muslim nation of the world. In Pakistan, all who apply for passport have to declare that they hate Ahmadiya muslims.

Hindus in general are a peaceful tolerant community and this blend with Hindus has given a unique progressive outlook to Indian Islam. Whatever problems exist in Muslim society today are due to radicalization and hatred being imported by dogmatic and selfish leaders from Wahabi mindset of Arab that did not even spare the grave of Prophet from destruction.

They would also refuse to highlight that there was never a Hindu President in Pakistan or Bangladesh. But India proudly had Abdul Kalam as its President. In fact they would refuse to even refer to Muslim heroes like Abdul Kalam, Abdul Hamid, Ashfaqullah Khan because they represented anti-thesis of radical Islam.

They would also not explain why, if Hindus discriminate against Muslims, then why Bollywood had a slew of Muslim superstars since inception of talkies – Dilip Kumar, Shahrukh Khan, Amir Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Salman Khan, Mohd Rafi, Naushad, Rehman etc etc.

They do not explain to them that in reality Muslims are NOT a minority in India. With more than 17% of population (an underestimation), they are actually at par with any majority group and hence cannot blame their plight on Hindus or Christians.

They would not explain that the cause of miseries of Muslims in India are these backward-looking radical Muslims and Mullahs who refuse modern education, instil threat of fatwas, discourage birth-control, issue fatwas insulting Muslim women and restricting their freedom and education, discourage free mixing with Hindus and imbibing the historical culture of the nation.

They just serve their selfish political and dogmatic agenda by poisoning minds of young Muslims and keeping un-poisoned minds under fear of threat. And hence the politics of vote-bank emerges. The reach of the Evil is now far and wide. He has both carrot and stick.

Muslims suffer, Hindus suffer, Hindustan suffers. The aam-aadmi turns a blind eye like in case of Damini dying on street. After all we excel only in writing obituaries, not success stories.

The media finds ways for protecting its commercial and professional interests. The politicians manage a balancing act between carrot of vote-bank and stick of fear. Sentimental orators and writers serving cause of ‘Hindutva’ would write reactionary rhetorics targeting entire communities that no one reads or takes seriously, except the media that would use it as a point to blame “Hindu fundamentalism” again! And some fools would see this writeup of Agniveer and start abusing religions.

One group would consider this writeup as justification for abusing Islam. Others would see it as conspiracy to demean Islam. Both will fight and the Evil will eventually win! The likes of Owaisi would get even more votes. We would nurture yet another monster. And continue our wait for the superhero who never ever came and would never ever come.

No one would step ahead to be the superhero himself. No one would think logically and honestly that hatred has to be destroyed from within and outside to be a superhero. No one would admit their own responsibilities in making things better. In having the grand-heartedness to love all humans as their own family members regardless of religion and birth. In having the courage to stand up against Evil attempting to abuse my mother. In having the vision to work for solutions that bring results and work at roots rather than show frustration which only make things worse.

Sounds depressing! Huh!

Come on friends, if this depression is not to turn true, lets get a bit more sensible. A bit more tolerant of each other and a bit more intolerant of the nonsense around. A bit more brave to fight the haters of motherland and a bit more proactive to cut the poison tree from root. A bit more visionary of the glorious future where all of us live in harmony as one family and a bit more realistic about the solutions we implement to achieve that vision. A bit more forgiving of the defects of others and much more critical of our own deeds.

The way we all united to demand death sentence for the rapists irrespective of whether they were Muhammad Afroz or Pawan Gupta, we must also unite to demand resignation of hate-mongers like Akbaruddin Owaisi. We must unite to have his party derecognized and he be sent to jail for treason and death threats to majority.

Enough of fear and apathy. Enough of seeing such incidents in saffron or green color. Let us realize that such monsters are the cause of whatever ignominy Muslims face and whatever terror attacks rest of the world faces. Let us realize that hate-mongers belong to no religion. And hence we must refuse to link such deeds of hate-mongers with any other event or person. We must also refuse to turn a blind eye to such misdirected chutzpah. Because these hate-driven designs give birth to graver crimes that shock the nation and its conscience. Lets thus destroy the root.

We don’t know how much of what Agniveer says will make sense to aam-aadmi (ordinary citizen) and make him rise to perform his special duties. Given the current spate of affairs, we seriously expect nothing from an impulsive, short-sighted, volatile society that we are becoming. But nonetheless, Agniveer stays unflinching in its path to salvation which passes through service of motherland, commitment to truth and tolerance, and constant visionary responsible result-oriented actions towards destruction of evil and nurture of virtuous.

We promise that till our last breath we shall work towards destroying the very roots of hatred that breed monsters like Zakir and Owaisi. We shall constantly strive to work towards a world where all live like one single family irrespective of region, religion, caste etc. In fact the only religion we believe in is religion of universal humanism.

How much we achieve and how quickly we achieve would depend on many things including how many of you commit to become Agniveer yourself. But nonetheless the mission shall continue till we live. And when we cease to live among you all tomorrow, we hope these words of Agniveer would still live and continue to ignite new Agniveers.

Journey is long, the night is dark.

But I can light a lamp, and I can walk.

Why Sonia Not included as Corrupt by Anna, Three Monkeys of Mohandas Gandhi

Sonia gandhi early days (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Dr.Subramanian Swamy’s is the lone voice that has the courage to utter the name of Sonia Gandhi as Corropt.

Barring him, none of the media utters a single word against Sonia Gandhi.

Sonia Gandhi is so sacrosanct for the Media that these investigators could not( or did not want to!) find out about the illness of Sonia Gandhi and her admission into the a Hospital in the US.

It was conveniently omiited and it was for useless bloggers like me to ferret out the details.

Even after this, the media never uttered the word’Cervical Cancer.

Media keeps quiet on the ownership of DLF Real Estate.

Those in the know who it belongs to in reality and what Robert Wadhera has to do with it.

Media will intrude the labour Ward of Ms.Aiswarya Rai Bachchan , but no news will be flashed about Priyanka’s kids.

Nor would there be a whisper about Rahul Gandhi’s Colombian Girl friend or a killing of a girl.

The Media respects the Privacy of Sonia Gandhi.

Well, what can you expect when the Media in India is not Indian at all?

“A very popular TV news media is funded by Gospels of Charity in Spain Supports Communism. Recently it has developed a soft corner towards Pakistan because Pakistan President has allowed only this channel to be aired in Pakistan . Indian CEO Prannoy Roy is co-brother ofPrakash Karat, General Secretary of the Communist party of India . His wife and Brinda Karat are sisters.

India Today :

Which used to be the only national weekly which supported BJP is now bought by NDTV!! Since then the tone has changed drastically and turned into Hindu bashing.

This is 100 percent funded by Southern Baptist Churchwith its branches in all over the world with HQ in US.. The Church annually allocates $800 million for promotion of its channel. Its Indian head is Rajdeep Sardesai and his wife Sagarika Ghosh.

Times group list:
Times Of India, Mid-Day, Nav-Bharth Times, Stardust, Femina, Vijay Times, Vijaya Karnataka, Times now (24- hour news channel) and many more…

Times Group is owned by Bennet & Coleman. ‘World Christian Council’ does 80 percent of the Funding, and an Englishman and an Italian equally share balance 20 percent. The Italian Robertio Mindo is a close relative of Sonia Gandhi.

Star TV:

It is run by an Australian, who is supported by St. Peters Pontifical Church Melbourne.

Hindustan Times:

Owned by Birla Group, but hands have changed since Shobana Bhartiya took over. Presently it is working in Collaboration with Times Group.

The Hindu:

English daily, started over 125 years has been recently taken over by Joshua Society, Berne , Switzerland .. N. Ram’s wife is a Swiss national.

Indian Express:

Divided into two groups. The Indian Express and new Indian Express (southern edition) ACTS Christian Ministries have major stake in the Indian Express and latter is still with the Indian counterpart.”

Team Anna:

How does one expect Team Anna expect to include as a word from Sonia Gandhi would make Anna Hazare run for cover , especially if she utters the Bribery case about Anna .

Kejriwal does not dare, his former employers are waiting.

Baba Ramdev? None knows how much he owns on behalf of Mrs,S.

Justice Hegde is a Safe shooter.

Advani?

Look at the way he rushed to offer apology to Sonia Gandhi.

Please read my blogs on Rajiv’s Millions,profile of Sonia Gandhi,Swiss Bank Confirms, KGB paid Money to Rahul Gandhi etc filed under ‘Corruption’

Sonia Gandhi is like prophet Mohammed, you can not write, speak against her.

Hope some fundamentalists do not start a cry over the use of the Prophet’s Name!

Subject: Robert Vadera–
Sonia Gandhi’s corrupt son in law

Please read and then forward to as many people as possible…

1. TATAs took 100 years to become billionaires, Ambanis took 50 years(after utilizing all its resources), where as Robert Vadra took less than 10 years to become fastest multi billionaire.

2. All newspapers are scared to discuss the story of Robert Vadra because of severe threat from Sonia Gandhi and Congress govt.

3. After Robert Vadra got married with Priyanka Gandhi, Robert’s father committed suicide under mysterious circumstances, his brother found dead in his delhi residence and his sister found dead in mysterious car accident. These reports were not published in any Indian media.

4. He is having stakes in Malls in premier locations of India, he is having stakes in DLF IPL, and DLF itself. He was involved in CWG corruption – DLF was responsible for development of Commonwealth games, and Kalmadi gave favoritism to DLS because of Robert Vadra’s direct interest and business partnership with DLF.

5. Robert Vadra owns many Hilton Hotels including Hilton Gardens New Delhi

6. Robert Vadra’s association with Kolkata Knight Ryders has never been reported by Indian media

8. He owns prime property in India specially commercial hubs, and taxi business but for Air Taxi. He owns few private planes as well.

9. He has direct link with Italian businessman Quatrochi.

10. The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security has created a record of sorts by according special privilege to Robert Vadra, which entails him to walk in and out of any Indian airports without being subject to any security check. Only the President of India , Vice-President and a handful of other top dignitaries were accorded this rare distinction.

As a concerned citizen, I would like to know from the Government as to what was the special quality in Mr. Vadra that merited this rare honor. The government has no right to go in for such largesse that concerns with the security of the general public just for pleasing the son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi.

WAKE UP FELLOW INDIANS ! FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION !!!!!!!
