2.8 Lakh crore commodity exchange scam by Congress central government. The trade happens only on paper,but the price goes up just like the stock market. Food items should not have been listed for commodity exchange. For example 1.22 Crore tonnes of Turmeric were sold, while the actual sales volumes were just 5 percent of it. Instead of GDP, food inflation was rising which hints that such a “scam” was not possible without the support of politicians in power 2010

National Highway Authority of India NHAI to erect billboards having Sonia’s and Manmohan’s photos in every 25 KM of the NH. Though the National Highway network named Golden Quadrilateral was started by Vajpayee government, congress wanted to loot the credit of it in this cheap way. When it became an issue in media, it was told that the contractor who build the NH will place the board and not the government. Why should the contractor pay huge money to erect these boards to praise Sonia? Finally when the issues heated up NHAI had to remove the bill boards. Cheap tactics by congress to project Sonia. 2009

Rs 600 Crore missile deal commission by UPA government. In a hurriedly signed deal worth Rs 10,000 crore for buying medium-range-surface-to-air missiles from Israel Aerospace Industries with 6% (600 Crore) as business charges. God only knows what is this business charges and who all in UPA got the share of this business charges.

By clinching the deal to buy the second hand Aircraft carrier which is almost done its half life, the government has “negotiated and agreed” to pay a huge amount of US$ 2.9 billion in 2009, even though it was originally agreed to buy it for US$ 800 million. CAG also questioned the requirement to buy a second hand used Aircraft carrier ship at a higher cost than that of a new Aircraft carrier ship. During the negotiation by the government for 4 years, the cost has gone up by Rs 7,207 Crore. What a wonderful congress negotiation. 2009

He is accused of having deposited the money in the Jordan National Bank, which was accessed by Saddam. One of congress’s International level corruption.

While Gujarat only 5 encounter cases pending, Congress ruled AP had 21, Congress ruled Maharashtra had 29, SP ruled UP had 175, the National Capital Delhi had 18 despite Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh at the helm and Congress ruled Uttaranchal had 14.

Because of pressures from Media and Action councils, CBI had to finally change their stand from Suicide theory to murder angle and Sister Sephy and Father Jose Poothrikkayil were arrested after long 17 years of various CBI and local police enquiries.  Illicit affairs in the Convent between fathers and sisters of convent and Abhaya’s knowledge on this is accused to be the reason for her murder. CBI misused by congress, and crores of tax payers money spend by delaying and diverting the probe. 1993

India’s failed foreign policy – involvement in Sri Lanka and LTTE: While Kashmir issues and boarder issues with China still unresolved, Rajeev Gandhi sent Indian Army to help Sri Lankan Army to suppress the pro-tamil LTTE activities in Sri Lanka. Result, IPKF did not succeed in the intended goal and suffered casualties of 1255 Indian Soldiers and many more injured and also killed around 7000 pro tamil LTTE cadres. Of late Sri Lanka had resolved the LTTE issue, but when can we see India resolving Kashmir, North East issues? 1987
Anti Sikh Riot killing between 10000-17000 Sikhs in this country. Congress’s leader Sajjan Kumar and fellow congress leaders lead the riot. Rajeev Gandhi commented ” When a big tree falls earth around it will shake” referring the killings of thousands of Sikhs. What a cruel comment. 1984

Bofors scandal. Rs. 400 Million corruption. Congress government helped the Ottavio Quatrochi, the middleman of this scandal to escape and also released all his frozen bank accounts. Quatrochi is a close associate of Rajeev Gandhi family. 1980
Emergency declared by congress’s Indira Gandhi from 25 June 1975 – 21 March 1977 for 21 months.  Reason: Raj Narain, who had been defeated in parliamentary election by Indira Gandhi, lodged cases of election fraud and use of state machinery for election purposes against Mrs. Indira Gandhi in the Allahabad High Court. On 12 June 1975, Justice Jagmohanlal Sinha of the Allahabad High Court found the Prime Minister guilty on the charge of misuse of government machinery for her election campaign. The court declared her election null and void and unseated her from her seat in the Lok Sabha. The court also banned her from contesting any election for an additional six years. To divert the massive country wide satyagrahas lead by JP Narayan, Indira Gandhi declared state of emergency in India. What a shame.  1975
Nehru’s betrayal of Tibet to please china and gain glory for himself. Inspite of letters from Sardar Patel stating ” Even though we regard ourselves as friends

of China, the Chinese do not regard us as friends.” He wrote a famous

letter in which he expressed deep concern over developments in Tibet,

raising several important points. In particular, he noted that a free

and friendly Tibet was vital for India’s security, and everything

including military measures should be considered to ensure it. On

November 9, 1950, two days after he wrote the letter to Nehru, he

announced in Delhi: “In Kali Yuga, we shall return ahimsa for ahimsa.

If anybody resorts to force against us, we shall meet it with force.”

But Nehru ignored Patel’s letter and Tibet is still a burning issue hurting India resulting in Dalai Lama in exile.
Nehru’s failure to settle boarder issues with China . 10000 sq. km of land was offered to China in a platter by Nehru (the entire eastern Ladakh -Aksai Chin) . There were many occasions for Nehru to solve the issue. Many life’s of our soldiers would have been saved if Nehru had acted then and there. The boarder issue still haunting is even after 60 years of Independence. 1950
Nehru’s blunder in referring Kashmir to UNO and agreeing the present ceasfire line or LOC. Though India was in a position to gain the lost Indian terrain and Patel was ready to lead the fightback, Nehru did a major blunder in referring the issue to UN, allowing Britain to do things as they wish. Patel was sidetracked and hence he offered his resignation on December 23, 1947. The Kashmir issue would have been settled then and there. 1947
