Jaitley's Dilemma



(This is a MaxiPost)

#ShameOnArunJaitley trended at the top on Twitter on April 14. He should be wondering why although I don’t think he really gives a damn. There are politicians who are mass leaders, like Narendra Modi, and there are politicians with nothing who have to survive by cultivating friends in the Lutyens Scotch circuit of which the media Presstitutes form an important component. The reason for the shame-trend for Arun Jaitley was another appearance with Barkha Dutt on NDTV. This trend was not hammered by opponents of BJP but their own supporters. It is not so much contempt for Jaitley as it is for Barkha Dutt and NDTV. This channel is known to be anti-Modi, anti-BJP and a Congress doormat. For me, all that is less important. For me, it is that NDTV is anti-Hindu, an anti-national criminal channel which needs to be prosecuted for multiple reasons. This lovey-dovey nonsense between Jaitley of BJP and Barkha with frequent “exclusive” interviews was going to repulse BJP supporters at some point. And it reached boiling point on April 14.

AJ has no sense of public sentiments or his ear to the ground. Imagine, the guy lost an election when there was a Modi-wave across the country. People are certain Navjot Singh Siddhu (the former MP from Amritsar) would have waltzed home with a victory. His cultivation of media crooks to rally for him has long been known in political and media circles. Now it’s known to the general public as well. His official residence is 9, Ashok Road but that operates as the warehouse of BJP’s media cell. AJ doesn’t stay there. Nobody in the Opposition or in the media ever asks why. Even among BJP supporters AJ was suspected to be a manipulator and part of what is known as D4. Here is what one report states:

Do read the report I have linked. It quotes articles that explain the loss of BJP in 2004 and the downslide of the party from thereon. It took Modi to revive its fortunes. Let’s take a detour and read this little clip:

Speaking to property dealers and neighbourhood home-owners, I compiled a list, which may not be exhaustive, of properties reportedly owned by Gupta or registered in his name. There is the Delhi house near IIT, and the farmhouse in Saanp Ki Nagli, which Gupta said he purchased from Maneka Gandhi’s family in 1995. Two villas (one a 1,005-square-yard plot) in EMAAR-MGF developments in Gurgaon. Also in Gurgaon, a plot in DLF’s Alameda project and a house in the National Media Centre. The Malcha Marg apartment. A house in Asiad Village, which Gupta gifted his daughter after she got married (the ceremony was at Arun Jaitley’s official residence). He also partially funded his son’s residence in London”.

That little burst is from a huge dossier on Shekhar Gupta that Caravan magazine carried in December 2014. The matter of SG and his extraordinary wealth is a different story. SG is also a Congress Presstitute but just focus on one line in that para – the daughter’s marriage – “the ceremony was at Arun Jaitley’s residence”. No matter what your political persuasion, almost all major Presstitutes were in the durbar of AJ. But there are also many in the Presstitute Club of India who are deeply wary of how AJ manipulates media through his durbaris so to say. Here is one who echoes many others in the media as soon as AJ was made I&B minister:

Prof R Vaidya of IIM Bangalore is a BJP sympathiser and often defends the party policies on TV and in writing. This tweet (which I think was during another of those 923676 exclusive AJ-BD interviews) should tell you something:

Fantastic, isn’t it? And it is true as well. I remember two instances when AJ was trashed in the media though. One was a TOI blog which accused him of accumulating bogus funds and AJ responded with a notice and TOI had to retract. The other, a recent one, was a paper that accused him of using Naval choppers for private use in Goa. This too he rejected and the paper retracted. So, let us say AJ isn’t corrupt and is right in defending his reputation on that count perfectly. But for a person who defends his reputation so ferociously what does he do about crimes by media? And I am not talking petty crimes like bias or bogus reporting like the Rambo type. I am talking serious financial crimes which is what public figures have been accusing NDTV of. Earlier it trended as #NDTVPCWedding which referred to former FM P. Chidambaram. Since then many people have written to AJ to act against NDTV including Ram Jethmalani, KPS Gill and most importantly S. Gurumurthy.

S. Gurumurthy is a columnist and a CA and a BJP sympathiser. He tweeted a whole dossier about NDTV’s FinCrimes and how an IT officer was victimised on various counts by the PC-NDTV combine. In case you haven’t seen it, someone has Storified the whole dossier and it makes terrible reading. The story is titled NDTV Tax frauds and it has been going on since long. Apart from abusing Modi, creating fake quotes and headlines and a lot of other bogus reports NDTV has routinely indulged in anti-BJP slander. Before the LS elections BJP banned it for a few days for a bogus tweet that quoted Sushma Swaraj. Has AJ forgiven all other crimes of this criminal channel? Barkha, in particular, with whom AJ appears ever so frequently has been named by Modi as one of the inciters of tension in parts of Gujarat in 2002. I know it because I’ve watched both Barkha and Rajdeep inciting passions on TV quite viciously at that time. Barkha’s histrionics and excessive inflammatory reporting is quite well known to all.

Let’s put the past behind. Recently, in the Church attack fraudulent reporting NDTV was the one who carried out a sinister campaign against BJP and ModiSarkar. The way NDTV concocted stories is acceptable to AJ? Or is he just pure blind and only his pathetic self-survival is important. Read Church Crimes – How NDTV concocts anti-Hindu slander. Also read NDTV’s Wanton Treachery and their crimes against Modi and India as a whole. It was NDTV that concocted all the fraudulent church attack stories and linked it to Ghar Wapsi. And AJ goes to that channel and answers to Barkha’s crap questions? And it is not that he merely answered them, there is something even more stupid. Here you go; read this tweet as carefully as you can:

On the face of it there is nothing wrong with the tweet. Is there? But he says “most” church attacks weren’t communal? So there were some that were communal? Anyway, let’s not indulge in nitpicking – that may just be bad wording because he picked it up from NDTV’s text. But here’s a question that is very serious:

This is a minister with a mic and the entire media ears at his command. He says the church attacks weren’t communal and seeks media to tell the truth and who does he quote? He quotes himself with a Via NDTV! Is this guy saying he wouldn’t have tweeted this or made this statement in a presser unless his stupid Town-hall with Barkha had happened? Is this what ministers do? This is nothing short of tomfoolery. He is quoting his own statement and crediting the source to NDTV when he should have made this statement much earlier and demanded media to speak the truth because the whole church-attack campaign by NDTV and others was fraudulent and agenda-driven. Is he also implying foolishly that he would have never made this statement if the NDTV Townhall crap had never happened? Is this the responsibility he owes to the people? This statement should have been publicly made to the entire media by him or some responsible minister in the govt much earlier when facts were out. This goes as VIA NDTV as if the criminal channel which concocted the fraud was the one to bring home the truth. Tragic, simply tragic! It didn’t end there, AJ made another grand statement:


Is that so? Let’s see – NDTV (earlier under StarNews) has been abusing BJP since 1999 (from the Kandahar episode that I remember), then 2002 for a decade, calling people on their show who called Modi mass-murderer and other names. Their bimbos rapped even the SC (with a UK MP) when it found no case against Modi, they’ve concocted all kinds of fake statements attributing them to BJP leaders, they concocted and internationalised the fake church-attack story and even got a lying Nun from Sophia College to brand ModiSarkar as the Nazi regime and this same Barkha defended that too. Did you look away? No! On the contrary you appear all too frequently on this channel like used cars keep appearing in the parking lot of resale-cars. Look away? Who are you; the new Mahatma as the satire pic suggests?

What is the job of an I&B minister? To hand out govt doles to select media houses and buy friendship, loyalty and favourable coverage? Doesn’t the minister have any responsibility to try and create a truly autonomous body (instead of self-appointed media crooks) which will act as a Watchdog over media crimes? That media excesses with lies, fraudulent and defamatory reports warrant stringent punishment? If you want to look the other way when media commits excesses then quit your job as I&B minister and let someone who is concerned about our corrupt media take over. You can keep your durbar and still enjoy it but let someone else do some sincere work on the media front. Nobody is calling for vengeance but the corrupt Indian media does seriously need a watchdog with powers and not stupid coffee shops like PCI or NBA.

And then on the question of Gen VK Singh making that Presstitutes comment about some media folks AJ tells Barkha he shouldn’t have used the word. Why? That term has found major acceptance with the public because that’s what the journos close to AJ really are. Why trash your colleague in public? You could have politely said it was just a sarcastic expression or it was VKS’ personal opinion off the cuff.  AJ shirked the question over #BazaruMedia it seems. Is that a more acceptable term for him for the Presstitutes? I guess one of the serious drawbacks of AJ is that he has no connection with people on the ground or ordinary people. He still seems to be in the Lutyens club where media durbaris are his best sources and informers. Someone tweeted a very stinging description of AJ’s survival philosophy and I consider it pretty close to the truth:

Pretty harsh tweet but unelected and unelectable people do need the crutches of media to survive in the Lutyens Club of politics. And do people develop a general random dislike of someone’s practices? Would AJ believe that people form perceptions about him for no rhyme or reason? If so, why would people like Hartosh Bal or TheAshutosh and many others in the media also form similar perceptions? The only logical answer I can think of is that AJ has developed proximity to a coterie of Presstitutes that brings about such contempt for him as #ShameOnArunJaitley. Others from BJP also appear on NDTV and other channels. Some get criticised for being silly on TV. AJ is hardly silly on TV or in the Parliament or anywhere. He is an intelligent, articulate person. So why is he the object of such intense contempt by his own party supporters? That is something he needs to ponder about but here is a small clue. On the day AJ became active on Twitter I asked him this question:


The above quote is from the late Vinod Mehta’s book Lucknow Boy. AJ has indeed created the perception that he is protecting Barkha and certain media crooks. That is something for him to answer. I am quite positive Vinod Mehta is not so extreme a rumour-monger so as to put down such a thing in writing. I would prefer to go by what he says unless AJ denies it. And if he indeed did protect media crooks then he is worthy of the contempt he is earning. There is a dedicated blog called Sonia’s Agents prominently featuring AJ. I don’t agree with the entire content but why is he generating such articles? Do people hate him for mere fun to write this stuff? And the tweet on the left about alleged meddling with ED investigations into Aircel-Maxis doesn’t exactly paint a bright picture of AJ. Why is AJ giving an impression that he would protect the corrupt? This news clip does not help that image either (If a thief returns the money, case closed?):

Psychological studies on impact of moving images on TV and the shrill noises anchors and reporters make have been on since early 1970s. Frequent appearances on TV do create revulsion among viewers, especially so if you keep appearing on a channel and with a Presstitute that are held in contempt by almost all of your own supporters. They create a sense of fear, disgust and anger:

During the LS campaign Modi appeared on almost all major channels – all except NDTV. There was one attempt to get him on NDTV through Newslaundry. A clever trick that I called Surrogate Interview. A few days later Modi cancelled the NL-Facebook event when he realised the platform was NDTV. If Modi is so religiously avoiding this criminal channel then why is such a senior minister like AJ constantly featuring on this channel? And I wouldn’t find anything wrong if Modi did appear once in a while on NDTV either. It is that Arun Jaitley is seen more often with Barkha and NDTV as if they are under some contract or obligation. And if this sends BJP supporters into a rage it is because the channel has been spewing vicious venom against the party, against Hindus, against India for many years. I have documented their crimes in many posts on this site. Is AJ blind to all of that? That is what is really enraging BJP supporters and those who are neutral to him.

Even otherwise some ministers in BJP are TV-hugging creatures. Nitin Gadkari, Devendra Phadnavis, Smriti Irani are other examples. As soon as Phadnavis became CM he went on a TV yatra. Fortunately, he has got into business and makes less appearances now, so too Gadkari. And these guys, along with AJ, turn up to launch books by all and sundry in the media anytime anywhere. Apparently Modi has immense trust in AJ and that is a good thing. It would be a phenomenal disaster if AJ also turns out to cause his downfall by his penchant to promote tainted media persons. And Barkha and NDTV are among the most disliked media people, at least among BJP supporters. What is happening is that the contempt people hold for Barkha and NDTV is being transferred to Arun Jaitley. Here’s another warning by a BJP supporter:

I have chopped off parts of the pic to keep it smaller. Indian Express recently hurled a lot of fake stories, fake report on Gujarat schools which repulses readers. Smriti Irani and other ministers seem oblivious to the crimes of media scoundrels. What disgusts supporters is that the SM battles these criminals every single day while the media-hugging ministers seem oblivious to all of it and are nonchalant in their craving for stupidity. What happens? This encourages extreme pigs like Outlook to write more crap about Smriti (over her CCTV episode) and then they play victim. This image wasn’t created by me and the fact it resembles someone closely is no coincidence either:

I doubt people want govt to strangle or kill the media. But Arun Jaitley holds a powerful position, even though the public has rejected him. One of the promises Modi made in his campaign is that the corrupt will be prosecuted. People are not impatient and they don’t expect miracles. But the perception that Modi’s Finance and I&B minister is a friend of the corrupt will eventually deal a bad hand to Modi and none else. AJ appears to give the impression he is not too in sync with the party or GOI. The problem with Jaitley, as it was with his close friend and former FM Chidambaram, who has the title of “Friend, father and philosopher of black money” by Ram Jethmalani, is that AJ gives that impression. PC had to eventually make a disgraceful exit from electoral politics. Don’t wish for such titles.

    3. Jaitley is toooo status quoist... and Swamy is too radical. India need someone in btwn.. whose work should be visible more in public than on paper.

      so far what ever the "visible" reforms we are seeing are due to the efforts of other ministers like Piyush Goel, suresh Prabhu, Parrikar etc..

      Given the mandate of public and the support of PM, wonder what is stopping him to unleash the full potential of his ministry.

  3. One question bothering me is how come PM Modi is "permitting" AJ's pandering of "crooked" media channels? Modi's "dislike" for NDTV is outin the open, but AJ seems to be getting away with this. And all this is happening right under PM's nose. What gives?

  5. Once a question was asked to Sudheendra Kulkarni in Mumbai, why did you went to Rajdeep Sardesai for Cash for votes scam? Why did you trusted him and CNNIBN? Surprisingly he said that that, this was not his decision but was taken at higher level in BJP. People speculate that the person who took the decision to trust Rajdeep Sardesai was Arun Jaitley. Does now Arun Jaitely thinks that Barkha Dutt is better than Rajdeep Sardesai? If he has not learned from CFV scam, he is Simply stupid.

  9. What is good about BJP is the willingness of its supporters to publicly criticize and express their anguish over Tessios in the party. I still feel Modi is quite aware of the transgressions of these powerplayers. It will be too soon for Modi to push all of them in Delhi to meet expectations of all his supporters. But I believe, he will do it, in his own way and at appropriate time (may be year 2016 when BJP may likely get majority in Rajya Sabha) . I guess Modi is expecting his supporters to fight the battle for him now by exposing these hijackers and make them powerless in near future. Keep up the good work @Mediacrooks , more dirt will have to be pulled out and put in the public domain

    4. I pretty much agree with you Shovita. In politics, seldom is done anything without first calculating 'cost vs benefits' and possibly (hopefully) what we novice see as abhorring behavior of AJ, could have some hidden benefits which we are not seeing yet.

  12. More than AJ, it is for NaMo and BJP a to take cognigence of these events and outrage of their supporters whip are in crores.
    It would be NaMo who would be questioned from now till 2019 election campaign and AJ would never be in the picture. In fact AJ is not a loser in any case,as he has no base in the masses! Like some Sibbal.

  13. In China, there is thing called 'nailhouse'. It is a house which is left & finds itself in the middle of construction or development activities surrounding it. Owner of this house is not ready to give up easily.
    Situation of AJ should be made like this nailhouse.
    He should be the last nailhose in BJP, surrounded by people like Gen VKS who detest media.
    This is the only possible way out to beat AJ if he doesn't want to mend his ways.

    But ironically PM Modi's situation is like this nailhouse in BJP encircled by all Media hugging crooks.

As you rightly say, Jaitley knows he can't win an election and so may never have the guts to let go of the parasite media.

  17. Dear Sir I share your hatred for NDTV. THey just cant complete one news item of our PM, without a tongue in cheek criticism. Yesterday, they seemed to praise Namo for his speech in Ricoh, only to end up questioning his criticism of Congress in his speech.
    Having said this, I also believe that AJ is doing a fine job as FM. Afterall Namo selected him not for nothing.

  19. What one is unable to understand is - it is known to everyone that burkha is a corrupt person and caught in the radia tapes. Is this not a enough reason to avoid her and NDTV?

  21. Arun Jaitley's 'Darling of media' reputation was well known to all BJP leaders, including to Narendra Modi. Granted Mr. Jaitley is very good in what he is doing (currently as FM), but Arun Shourie and Mr. Swamy are equally good if not better. Yet Mr. Modi chose to go with Mr. Jaitley. Mr. Modi is known for his political shrewdness. So I wonder, could Modi be playing "Good Cop" VS "Bad Cop" trick with media?

  22. Ram Jethmalani shooting AJ pic was Awesomely funny. But seriously IMHO, it is very clear that AJ has some vested interest in protecting the corrupt. The reason for that can only be - he himself is corrupt

  23. People believe that Jaitley is doing good Job as FM? Well ED,CBI and other investigative agencies are under FM , and he is the saviour of them. Why is this man given such a long rope? He sleeps over I&B ministry because crooks in Media will never challenge him , so what is he doing at I&B Ministry. I hope reasons of him being there at Centrestage are good enough because the contempt that he generates in the minds of Modi/BJP supporters is immense...and the damage can be Big.It was MODI Who directed that no Interview to be given to Private channel on BUDGET DAY.. This has to be instructed to I&B minister to stop him..

    1. Completely agree with all your comments. What I do is I gift books by Ravinar, Rajiv Malhotra, arun shourie and other pro-hindu/pro-indian authors to my friends during some occasion like their birthday etc.

      Another way to promote Mediacrooks is to take 300 printouts of the mediacrooks logo and the website url and leave one printout each at places like CafeCoffe day, Barista, domestic / international flights, litter entrance gate of IT companies like TCS, Infy, Wipro .. during 9am and 6pm. :) I would suggest distributing poster of mediacrooks logo outside office of NDTV, Hindustan Times. If someone knows where Rajdeeo Sardesai and Barkha leaves , I would suggest them to paste poster in their front gate or wall.

  32. This article goes after AJ for all sorts of reasons, some concocted and self-serving, some legitimate shortcomings. I don't have all facts to comment on the rest of the accusations but there's one I would take head on. That is Amritsar defeat. Here are the facts in May 2014:

    * Punjab was the only state in India that had anti-incumbency for NDA govt. All states where NDA was in play had a pro-incumbency wave for BJP (if it was a ruling party), or an anti-incumbency wave against opposition.

    * Punjab was the only state where Modi's otherwise cheerleading crowd fell into deafening silence wherever he rallied. I still remember watching his speech in Faridkot two days before Phase 3 and wondering if the audience has been paid to attend. There were no "Modi, Modi" chants, no hint of outrage against UPA's scams. The numbers were so less that even youtube cameras stopped focussing on the audience.

    * Punjab was the only state where AAP fielded highly credible candidates, and a substantial section of middle class who ditched it in Delhi voted.

    * MediaCrooks thinks Navjot Sidhu would have "easily" won, but let's call spade a spade. Sidhu was known as MP-in-absentia, so much so that his "missing" posters were hung across Amritsar. His running feud with Akalis (maybe legitimate grievance) meant that he drove all developmental activities to a halt.

    * When every BJP leader worth his salt looked for the safest seat with no-name competitors (Rajnath from Lucknow, Sushma from Vidisha, Gadkari from Nagpur), Jaitley could have chosen a very safe seat for his first-ever election (any from 26-seater Gujarat or 25-seater Rajasthan or 7-seater Delhi or 6-seater Mumbai). Instead he chose Amritsar whose incumbent BJP MP had a "run-away" record and whose NDA state govt had grounded BJP's hopes even before campaign began.

    * To make matters worse, guess who he got as his opponent: a popular ex-CM who had Punjab politics on his fingertips. The only mass leader Congress had and the best bet against Jaitley who could not even speak Punjabi fluently!

    * The article says Jaitley didn't ride the "Modi wave", but was there any "Modi wave" in Punjab? Would the author now blame Modi for it?

    It is true that Jaitley lost, therefore MediaCrooks is technically right in calling him out as a loser. But these details would get in the way of a good story.

    It is welcome if the Right Wing media keeps up pressure on Jaitley to perform to their expectations, but invectives and motivated stories should be avoided.

      You are off the mark as far as Amritsar is concerned. Under the D4 Delhi was badly managed so Jaitley too thought Amritsar was a safe seat for him. He is a longterm Delhi resident but did not think he would win from Delhi so he too opted for Amritsar as a safe seat. When he chose Amritsar there was not even a clear opponent. Capt Amrinder had to be pushed hard by Congress to contest Jaitley and it took some time before he contested. So this idea that Jaitley didnt choose a safe seat is not correct.

      The opposite happened, BJP won all in Delhi and Jaitley lost Amritsar. He lost because he simply has no appeal with voters. He even promised he would buy a house and live in Amritsar and live there if he won. It is doubtful a Lutyens durbari like him can live anywhere but Delhi. The only person who took on a real challenge was Smriti Irani who contested Rahul Gandhi.

      Jaitley thought Amritsar was safe but it proved he is as unpopular there as he is in Delhi.

    2. Jaitley is a liability for Modi. However, Modi seems mesmerised by him. The presstitutes hope BJP will not gain a majority in 2019 and the club 160-180 will come into play. I think Jaitley fancies his chances as PM in 2019. He has the backing of pseudo seculars and presstitutes. They were hoping Modi would not obtain a full majority in 2014 and then LKA or preferably AJ would have been made PM with the support of Nitish etc. It would have meant a pliable Vajpayee mark 2 regime. All this reminds one of Caesar and Brutus or Christ and Judas.

    3. Jaitley lost Amritsar because of Whatever reason. But he could not give even a close fight to Amarinder and the reason is only that he lacks mass appeal as MC states. No doubts on that.. Delhi bashing could have been converted to defeat if AJ had any competence in Elections.. Talking about Sidhu as Absentee, MM Joshi in Varanasi was much bigger absentee if only such things make a big difference... MODI is making a scapegoat of hiself by keeping Jaitly as FM Who is protecting Secular criminals.. BJP's acceptance could rise manifold if they could put behind bars known secular criminals through their open and shut cases... But you need a man with Gumption to do that.. Lutyenites are just Public Looters...irrespective of the party they belong to...

  36. Ravinaar Sir....hundred of bows to you for this yet another excellent article. You are a worthy son of our motherland and your noble services should not go unnoticed by our beloved PM.

    Our respected PM should take cognizance of this article and immediately arrange to effect the necessary changes in his cabinet. I think Mr. S. Gurumurthy will make an excellent FM as he is a brilliant CA, a shrewd financial expert, a master strategist and has impeccable integrity like Modiji. Only drawback may be his weakness to Swadeshi economy which can be brushed aside for the larger picture. AJ should also be stripped off from I & B ministry and Gen VKS should be a given that responsibilty.

    AJ can be best given a ministry like Statistical and programme implementation for the rest of his tenure and in 2019, after Modi wins, I know he will for sure, he should be sent as governer to a state.

  41. Ravinar,

    One of the best articles that has come about in the recent times. You are closer to TRUTH. A good majority in MY BJP is like AJ. Modi is silent as he is a prisoner of circumstances. He should Act but then people around him are WHALES to swallow him. A difficult situation. If he remains like this, BJP will never get back to a second term.

    If only MMS did pay heed along with Sonia, Congress would not have earned such an ignominy in the last election. Your articles aimed at TRUTH should open they eyes of MODI and who are close to him.

  42. AJ's behaviour is becoming very strange of late.Is there a method in this madness? Look at the way issue of IT return form is being blown up.Look at the way tax notices are being served.If you want to punish all tax evaders, why don't you punish NDTV? As an I & B Minister, BJP's supporters don't know what he is doing with DD.If NDTV is anti Hindu can he make DD a pro Hindu TV? let those seculars scream.

  43. It is ironical AJ never defended BJP or Modi Govt the way he defended his reputation in Media. He came on defending church attack after one quarter. Seems he waited for the impact report of this vilification by MSM for a quarter and then decided to take corrective measures. Sooner will be better for Modi to get rid of him and put AJ on some decorative ministry where he oragnise his media durbbar regularly.

  44. Arun Jailtley could be the Trojan Horse for BJP in the next elections. I never realized that he is the favorite among the presstitutes until the advent of social media and this blog.

  45. BJP is loosing ground. It has done nothing substantial to the progress of this nation. Everything as it was when BJP was voted to power. Unless Modi does something to improve the conditions of the nation, he will loose the next election. He should identify the weak links in his Govt and straighten them. Amit Shaw has become a drag. After very many years, we have got one Modi, and am afraid we might loose him due to his non-application of mind.
