Home Minister’s firm paying ‘Silence’ Money to Maoists – Subramanian Swamy

published on April 24, 2010

Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of the Janata Party. 

 I demand that the Prime Minister drop Mr. P.Chidambaram from the Home Ministry  because he is conflicted in his office, by his private interests, in performance of his duties.

I have documents with me to show that Mr. Chidambaram has had fiduciary and financial relations with Vedanta Resources Inc. as a paid Director on their Board as well as he was receiving fees for various legal opinion provided by him from time to time.  He has also enjoyed at Vedanta Inc expense account his personal hospitality in London and provided with appropriate companionship there. Vedanta Inc has been paying the Maoists ‘silence’ money on a commission basis for every wagon of ore shipped out of mines in Orissa. Hence how can Mr. Chidambaram be seen to be above board in dealing with Maoists ?

Mr. Chidambaram is also culpable in the IPL controversy because as Finance Minister he had blocked the Reserve Bank of India from taking action in the IPL bets and payments made in foreign exchange, and also the hotel bills in South Africa and other places were paid for in cash in foreign exchange. Mr. Chidambaram also blocked the CBI registering a case of match fixing on which a detailed investigation report was submitted to him.  He scuttled the probe by saying that it is the BCCI which should go and press a complaint for an FIR to be registered and not the Government.

Hence the Prime Minister cannot rely on Mr. Chidambaram to get to the bottom of IPL, since the latter has an interest that will scuttle the present ongoing probe into the matter.
