Some cricketers like Sreesanth and Chandilya were arrested in the IPL betting case and were in jail for a few days before they got bail. They seem to have been recently vindicated and may return to the game. In contrast, look at how our media and courts deal with a fraud-accused like Teesta Setalvad. I did not comment on the CBI court declining her anticipatory bail because I suspected the Bombay HC will come to her rescue. But she’s a “victim”. Earlier when a court cancelled her bail a battery of lawyers held a “Dial-a-bail” video conference with the Supreme Court to get her bail in the late evening. But she’s a poor “victim”.
When the CBI court rejected her bail she claimed she was a victim of hate and vendetta. Some of her funders are convicted criminals like SantSingh Chatwal. Sant who? He’s the New York hotelier who was awarded a Padma Bhushan in January 2010 by the Congress govt. And then there is Ford Foundation and many others. All these guys were moved to tears by Teesta’s fight for justice. Let us leave it at that. That she was fraudulently funded with help by the Congress is not a big secret. The money trail also makes fantastic reading. I am not going to waste time repeating what is already in the public domain. For Teesta when courts vindicate Modi it’s not acceptable but when courts slam her she’s being penalised for a petty crime:
Now, in my previous post (Teesta Rudalis) I mentioned all the crooks in the media gathered to mourn her tragedy and situation. Of course, the reason is simple – a conviction of Teesta is an indirect conviction of these crooks who fed on her filth to target political opponents. But it is one particular hypocritical moron who has been screaming his lungs out as if a great disaster has befallen a poor woman who has been working hard for justice. Here’s “Wheeler Dealer” Shekhar Gupta:
Not just SG but all our media crooks danced at the fake cases against Amit Shah. I don’t think people have forgotten the war-dance of Sreenivasan Jain. Never mind! I got curious on why this SG is so agitated against legal prosecution of what are evidently fraudulent financial transactions by Teesta. He calls it mere accounting issues:
So called foolish editors who claim to be experts from finance to “Bahubali” appear to have learned nothing from history. All it took to start off a serious investigation into the greatest political scandal of the 20th century was this – A donation-cheque of $25000 issued to the Republican National Committee to re-elect Nixon, instead of being deposited into the RNC bank account, was endorsed to a Watergate burglar. That was followed by the famous Deep Throat quote: “Follow the money”! Did Shekhar Gupta ever learn this? Does he remember that it was an ordinary endorsement of a cheque to a burglar that finally led to the resignation of a US president? No, obviously not. So why is this “wheeler-dealer” so vocally defending the financial crimes of some political activist like Teesta? What’s his stake? And he even goes on to say CBI is hounding Teesta for some crap like Tampons and stuff:
(By the way, this is the same hypocrite SG who ranted about Kiran Bedi fudging some travel bills to benefit her NGO rather than personal enrichment and considers Teesta’s frauds an accounting issue). And here’s the beauty about Ford Foundation:
Okay SG! Did you ever ask SoniaG how she allowed FF to operate in India then? CBI hounds people for buying tampons and silly love stories with donation money? That’s the intelligence of our so-called editors. Firstly, many disagree, but I am absolutely clear that Teesta is an anti-national and is a threat to national security. Here’s why:
Teesta took the Gujarat riots issue to politicise it internationally. She took it to the Geneva Human Rights Organisation when the matter was already in our courts. What were her motives if not to tarnish the image of India and our courts (other than her political motives for Congress against Modi)? The Supreme Court rightly warned her "You seem to have more faith in foreign organisations than this court. It seems that witnesses would be protected by these organisations," the bench remarked adding that if such letters are written then the court would pass the order without hearing the contentions of the CJP… If you send such letters then we would hear the amicus curie and pass the order (without hearing you)," the court said adding, "All the cases are being monitored by us, we don't like any correspondence of her with foreign agencies". Not an anti-national act? Not for SG, I suppose.
Next, Teesta testifies with the US Commission on religious freedoms (some US based groups against Modi organised this nonsense). You testify with a US commission for your political persuasions and motives? Who else had she talked to and is still talking to? And she LIED even that to that Commission. The fraud that she is, she claims riots happened in Gujarat only since 1998 when BJP came to power. Any idiot (even a fool like Shekhar Gupta would know) that Gujarat has a history of riots – the worst being 1969 and 1985 under Congress rule. This fraudulent liar is who our media Rudaalis claim is a poor victim?
So I had to ask myself the question – Why is SG so agitated about a petty thief like Teesta and political foot-soldier? What is his obsession in whining for her? That reminded me of an old article I had written on this blog – Commie media’s anti-Hindu poison. I recollected the name STRATFOR because I had quoted an article by that organisation in that post. Then it struck me why SG’s tampons are in a twist over this self-confessed petty offender like Teesta. So I posted this tweet asking the question:
When I first wrote about Stratfor and SG being the only contact they had in India, it was written in a different context and a different topic. Now the question that crosses my mind is in the tweet above – Does SG too have tampons to hide in his closet? He has never denied his links with Stratfor. All these agenda-morons who pass for editors often write a lot of stuff in their short resume in Opeds and articles – “Editor for IE, formerly with HT, Rhodes scholar, Eminent political observer” and so on. I have never once seen SG or any media house ever mentioning his being a worker for Stratfor. Obviously, I have to assume, SG is not a social “worker” (like Teesta?) who would do things for free for groups like Stratfor. Would he? And now that I recalled it – this Stratfor is far more sinister it appears. It has links to CIA, it spied on the Bhopal Gas activists to provide information to Dow Chemicals for protective measures. All this went on without the knowledge of SG?
Nobody in the media or the then GOI asked any questions to SG about this sinister organisation. But why would the Congress ask any questions to SG anyway? After all, this “wheeler dealer” was “Doctoring & Nursing” the Congress when it was evidently dying. There is something more alarming in the report that was based on the Wikileaks:
A mix of covert and overt informants? Makes me assume SG had to be a covert operator since he has never disclosed it anywhere (till Wikileaks blew the lid) as far as I know and I am open to correction if someone can provide me such information on his disclosure. And the operators were being paid via Swiss banks and prepaid credit cards? Interesting! So let me understand this from some expert – If I get a payment through a Swiss bank where would that be reflected? If it were me – it would be reflected in my normal Indian bank account. But here’s another thing – operators were also paid by “Prepaid credit cards” – which means it will not be reflected anywhere in any account of mine. Clever operation; eh? And SG was also ignorant of Hamid Gul of ISI being a member of Stratfor? Extraordinary! You can read the full article at Hardnews.
Like I said in my post “Teesta Rudalis”, all those whining for her appear to be worried investigating her may reveal a lot more on our media pimps who dismiss her frauds as “petty offences”. In December 2014 Caravan Magazine ran an article on the phenomenal wealth acquired by SG. Let us assume all that is legitimate – after all SG is an expert in “accounting” but there are other questions he must answer. What was his role with Stratfor? Did they pay him? And why is he called a “Wheeler Dealer” in the Capital? Maybe the GOI should look into all this with a fine tooth-comb. Deep Throat left us with his wisdom for eternity – “Follow the money”.
