Rajiv Gandhi - the Bofors Brahmin !
One of the most sinister aspects of the Brahminist regime occupying Bharat is the presence of a highly corrupt Brahmin-run bureacracy. For the last fifty years, corrupt Brahmin officials and bureacrats have been systematically looting India of its wealth and resources. Corruption is openly practiced without the least concept of shame. That this corruption exists at all levels of the elitist Brahmin-dominated bureacracy sometimes becomes apparent to the average citizen with the revelation of multi-crore scams. Sukh Ram, P.V. Narasimha Rao and Romesh Sharma are only some of the more famous corrupt Brahmins which have been involved in scores of scams - fodder scam, havala scam, land scam, urea scam - the never-ending list goes on and on. However, none of these scams comes close to the enormous $ 250 million Bofors scam, which involved Rajiv Gandhi, the Brahmin Prime Minster of India, and virtually all the top Brahmin officials in the bureacracy.
However, once the Brahmins were exposed, the Congress and its allies immediately started shouting that they were innocent and expressed grave indignance. Much consternation existed, that the scam had been exposed, that the "lowly", "filthy" abrahmanas had dared to question their Brahmin masters. This indignation follows directly from Vedic law. For, from his very childhood the Brahmin is taught as per his religious `holy' books that the Brahmin has the right to steal, extort and rob the "abrahmana" and the "dasyoo":
|"A Brahmana may confidently seize the goods of (his) Sudra (slave); for, as that (slave) can have no property, his master may take his possessions."|
These verses were also taught to Rajiv Gandhi. Indeed, all of his actions follow directly from Manu and Vedic law. From his very birth the Brahmin is brainwashed into believing that he is superior to all other races, that he can rob them at will :
|" Whatever exists in the world is, the property of the Brahmana; on account of the excellence of his origin the Brahmana is, indeed entitled to all ."|
Thus, Rajiv Gandhi's actions were entirely in accordance with the `sacred' Vedas and Puranas. In organising the Bofors scam, Rajiv Gandhi was merely following his religion - `astik' Hinduism. In his eyes, and those of the rest of the Brahmins, he was committing no sin whatsoever. As long as the people he robbed and cheated were Sudras, everything was fine.
That is why the Brahmins believe they can loot the world, and get away with it. Hence the indignation of the Brahmins at the affront caused to them. The persons working to expose the Brahmin conspiracy were immediately branded as "anti-Hindu", "anti-Brahmin", "ISI agents" or "Pakistanis". All journalists who published articles exposing the heinous corruption under Pandit Rajiv Gandhi were severely persecuted.
At the same time, the Brahmins started to sabotage all investigations into the Bofors scam. Thus, they appointed Ramesh Chandra Sharma, Director of the CBI and another Brahmin, as head of the Bofors inquiry. He remained in this post for five years starting in 1991. It thus comes as no surprise that he "made little progress on the investigation." [ Earth Times, July 31, 1997 ] Why a Brahmin (R.C.Sharma) should be permitted to head the inquiry into the crimes committed by another Brahmin (Rajiv Gandhi) was a question censored by the Brahmin-Occupied-Media, with the very idea being erased from the minds of the common man. However, several years on, it is now clear to the entire world that Rajiv Gandhi was just another corrupt Brahmin :

50th Birthday, but not much for India to celebrate
[ ... ] India had its birth with a tradition of honesty and transparency, exemplified again by men like Gandhi and Nehru. Indians took pride in honesty in public life, compared to its Asian neighbours where corruption had become rampant and taken firm roots. However, rigid bureaucratic controls, the system of electoral finance and poor pay to government officials was soon to make India into one of the most corrupt nations in the world.
Indira Gandhi, when confronted with allegations of widespread corruption in her Congress Party, dismissed it as a "universal phenomenon". Under her son, Rajiv Gandhi, initially labelled "Mr Clean", a succession of financial scams took place, including a $1.3 billion Swedish gun deal in which Indian politicians and officials took bribes worth $250 million (the details are still being investigated though Rajiv Gandhi has been implicated ).
After Rajiv Gandhi's assassination in 1991, his successor P.V. Narasimha Rao, did little to clean up public life. On the contrary, his administration, including his own relatives, found itself involved in more scams, running into the equivalent of millions of dollars. One of his own ministers, Sukh Ram who handled telecommunications, was found with almost 40 million rupees (around $3 million) in cash in his house, much of it stuffed in pillow-cases and wrapped in bedsheets (he was subsequently arrested and is presently being prosecuted). He claimed that the money was for his Congress Party, a claim that it officially denied, just before expelling him.
Widespread corruption, pervading every aspect of Indian life, has been a drag on development. Transparency International, a German-based non-governmental anti-corruption watchdog, has in its latest report placed India as among the ten most corrupt countries in the world. The Indian judiciary, the Press and the political opposition have often exposed corruption but to little effect. The curbing of corruption and prosecuting the guilty, often senior officials and politicians, to deter wrongdoers remains among the urgent priorities of India. [ ... ]
Investigations dragged on. Finally, some headway was made after several long years. Facts were suppressed, and valuable documents destroyed by Brahmin bureacrats. Indeed, it is only after Rajiv Gandhi's death that the CBI dared to chargesheet him. It subsequently became clear that Rajiv Gandhi was not implicated in the scam by "lower-ranking officials", as was claimed by the Brahminist Congress, but that he himself was master and director of the entire episode. Thus, the CBI chargesheet which was finally released after several years of delay by the Brahmin lobby, named Pandit Rajiv Gandhi as the main accused.

CBI to name Rajiv as Bofors case prime accused
NEW DELHI, May 13: Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi has been named as the prime accused in the proposed chargesheet relating to the Rs 1,437-crore Bofors gun deal clinched in March 1986.
Highly placed sources in the Cabinet Secretariat said today that CBI Director Joginder Singh has sent the ``top secret'' Bofors chargesheet for the Government's formal clearance.
Although Rajiv Gandhi cannot be prosecuted as he was assassinated in May 1991, the CBI's proposed chargesheet holds him guilty of hatching a conspiracy to cause willful loss to the state exchequer and allowing middlemen (Quattrocchi, Win Chadha and unknown persons) to make money.
However, the CBI's 300-page report (proposed chargesheet) admits its failure to prove that Rajiv Gandhi himself benefited financially in the gun deal.
Madhav Sinh Solanki, former Union Minister, Gopi Arora, former Special Secretary to the then Prime Minister, former Defence Secretary S K Bhatnagar, Italian businessman Ottavio Quattrocchi and his wife Maria, Win Chadha, his late wife Kanta and son Harsh Chadha are among the other accused.
The CBI has excluded former Army Chief Gen K Sundarji's name as an accused, after considerable deliberation. One of the considerations that weighed in favour of Sundarji was his willingness to cooperate with the CBI and depose against Rajiv Gandhi and others.
The CBI's report on Sundarji says that no mala fide case could be established against him for recommending the Swedish Bofors gun instead of the French Sofma gun. Sundarji, before becoming the Army chief had insisted for buying the Sofma on six occasions.
The two sets of secret bank documents received from the Swiss authorities last year by Joginder Singh in Berne failed to establish that money went to any of the Indian public servants who decided to purchase the Bofors gun.
The two sets of bank documents revealed that Quattrocchis received Rs 9 crore in the gun deal while the Chadhas got Rs 20 crore approximately. The documents relating to the third secret account is yet to be received from the Swiss authorities.
Late Rajiv Gandhi's cousin and former Union Minister Arun Nehru, Ram Chandra Rath, a Congress candidate from Asaka (Orissa) and others have also been named as prosecution witnesses. They have told the investigators the influence Quattrocchi yielded during the regime of the Gandhis. Arun Nehru was extensively grilled by the CBI during which he extensively spoke against the Gandhis.
In fact, it was L Revenasiddiah, who as head of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on Bofors got photographs and related evidence to establish Quattrocchi's access with the Gandhi family. Revenasiddiah who was a trusted lieutenant of former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda sought his transfer to Bangalore before the change of guard at the Centre.
It was in the last week of April that Joginder Singh sent a request to the Cabinet Secretariat asking the Government to de-classify 15 ``top secret'' files in the Prime Minister's Office and 20-odd files in the Defence Ministry to enable the agency to use the same as evidence in the case.
These files were made available to the CBI to help the agency in probing the deal. These cannot be used as evidence in courts and for chargesheeting purposes without the same being de-classified.
However, the agency dispatched the proposed chargesheets without waiting for the Government's nod on de-classification of these files. Sources say that Joginder Singh is in a tearing hurry to complete probe into all important pending cases.
In the Bofors case, documents relating to the third secret Swiss bank account are yet to come. The CBI is yet to receive replies from countries where Letters Rogatory were sent in this regard.
Sources say that the CBI investigators failed to establish any motive on the part of Rajiv Gandhi to award the contract to the Swedish gun manufacturer. Merely the fact that the money went to Quattrocchi and Win Chadha cannot be used as evidence against Rajiv Gandhi because it was K Sundarji who opted for Bofors instead of Sofma.
The Rajiv Gandhi regime cleared the gun deal within 48 hours after receiving Sundarji's recommendation for Bofors while Madhav Sinh Solanki, former External Affairs Minister, interfered in the CBI's investigation by handing over a letter to the Swiss authorities to scuttle Bofors probe.
Of course Rajiv Gandhi and his fellow Brahmins attempted to silence the investigators. History reveals that the Brahmins are willing to use all means, fair and foul, to annihilate their opponents. The `holy' Arthasastra prescribes that a Brahmin may poison his enemy whilst feigning friendship with him. However, all these tactics amounted to nought as the conspiracy was finally uncovered.

A conspiracy to favour Bofors, says chargesheet
By Nirnimesh Kumar
NEW DELHI, OCT. 24. The Bofors chargesheet squarely accuses the former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, and the other accused persons of entering into a criminal conspiracy with some other persons in the award of the contract to Messrs A.B. Bofors of Sweden for the purchase of 400 155 mm FH 77-B gun systems.
``Investigation into the allegations conducted so far in India and abroad has revealed that the accused - Mr. S.K. Bhatnagar, Mr. W. N. Chadha alias Win Chadha, Mr. Ottavio Quattrocchi, Mr. Martin Ardbo, Messrs A.B. Bofors and Rajiv Gandhi - entered into a criminal conspiracy with some other persons in New Delhi, Sweden, Switzerland and other places during 1985-87 and thereafter with the objective of getting the Indian Government to award a contract in favour of A.B. Bofors for the purchase of 400 155 mm FH 77-B gun systems by abuse of official position by the aforesaid public servants and for causing wrongful gain to private persons/others and corresponding wrongful loss to the Government of India in the deal,'' the chargesheet says.
The Ministry of Defence on February 20, 1984 moved a proposal for the consideration of the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs for procurement of 400 guns along with accessories/spares/vehicles and ammunition at a total cost of Rs. 1,600 crores and subsequent licence manufacture in India of 520 guns in the 7th Plan and thereafter.
The Ministry had also requested constitution of two committees - negotiable committee and guidance committee - to carry out negotiations.
The Army, after extensive field trials and on the basis of comparative evaluation, had (vide General Staff communication dated December 30, 1982,) inter alia, accorded top priority to the Sofma gun of France while the Bofors gun was given second preference and FH70 of Britain's International Services Limited was third, says the chargesheet. For only a one-time buy as well, the Sofma gun was given top priority. After that came the guns manufactured by Bofors, International Military Services and the GN 45 of Messrs Voest Alpine of Austria, the chargesheet says.
The Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs, at its meeting on April 25, 1984, considered the proposal and approved it. However, instead of two committees as proposed by the Ministry, it approved constitution of a Negotiating Committee with the Defence Secretary, Mr. S.K. Bhatnagar, as its chairman. The Committee was constituted on May 3, 1984.
The Negotiating Committee, on the advice of the Army Headquarters, recommended shortlisting of two firms - Messrs Sofma and Messrs Bofors - on October 29, 1985.
The Army Headquarters (vide their technical evaluation report of 155 mm towed gun systems dated February, 1986) mentioned that the Bofors gun enjoyed a clear edge over the Sofma gun in view of current and future operational requirements, the chargesheet says.
The Negotiating Committee on March 12, 1986 recommended the issuance of a Letter of Intent (LoI) to the Bofors. The matter regarding issuance of the LoI was got approved by different Secretaries and Miniseries concerned on March 13 and 14, 1986. ``The file, in fact, was approved by five officials and three Miniseries on a single day on March 13, 1986 and was finally approved by the Prime Minister, Mr. Rajiv Gandhi, as Raksha Mantri on March 14, 1986. The LoI was also issued to the Bofors on the same day,'' the chargesheet alleges.
Investigation revealed that even at crucial stages of the negotiations, both the companies were allowed to submit their offers at will, as and when they chose to do so. They were not given any particular cut-off date and time to submit their offers, the chargesheet says.
No date and time was set for the last and final offers. Suddenly, on March 12, 1986, the Negotiating Committee decided to issue the LoI, thus putting an abrupt end to the negotiations, the chargesheet alleges.
``Thus, the sudden decision to issue the LoI without affording an equal opportunity to the competing vendor would itself reveal that undue favour had been shown to the Bofors.'' On March 24, 1986, a contract was signed between the Government and the Bofors after approval by Mr. Gandhi, who was also in charge of the Defence portfolio, for supplying 400 guns.
However, on April 16, 1987, Swedish Radio came out with a story that the Bofors had managed to obtain the contract due to the fact that the local agents had been paid large amounts in bribe.
Following it, the Government of India directed Mr. B.M. Oza, then Ambassador of India to Sweden, to demand from the Swedish Government a statement denying the allegations. However, the Swedish Government said it could not issue such statement without investigating the allegations. On April 21, 1987, the Government of India made a formal request to the Swedish Government for an investigation.
In the meantime, Bofors officials gave a detailed letter to Mr. Oza denying having made any payments of the kind alleged. Mr. Oza forwarded the letter to the External Affairs Ministry.
Investigation revealed that, the chargesheet further says, after receiving the said letter, Mr. Gandhi had a telephonic talk with the Swedish Prime Minister, Mr. Carlsson, and said there were no middlemen and, therefore, there was no need for further investigation, the chargesheet says.
What Mr. Gandhi told the Swedish Prime Minister was contrary to what the Indian Government had requested through official channels. All this occurred despite the specific advice of Mr. Oza. In fact, he was kept in the dark with regard to this development, the chargesheet alleges.
However, Rajiv Gandhi had to relent later and sent a message to the Swedish Prime Minister on April 27, 1987. The message read: ``Though the facts furnished by the Bofors company tend to confirm the position that there were no middlemen, clarifications are necessary to set the controversy at rest. In this context, the enquiry promised by the Swedish Government is of great importance.''
The Swedish Government, thereafter, ordered an inquiry by the Swedish National Audit Bureau (SNAB). The Bureau submitted its report to the Swedish Government on June 1, 1987. The report confirmed that payments to the tune of SEK 170-250 million were made by the Bofors as ``winding up costs.'' In a bid to pressure A.B. Bofors for obtaining details of payments, the Ministry of Defence on July 3, 1987 called vice- president of the Bofors, Mr. Bredin, staying here. The Additional Secretary, Ministry of Defence, Mr. N.N. Vohra, and the Joint Secretary (O), Mr. T.K. Banerjee, made it clear to him that if they did not furnish details, Bofors would lose the contract, the chargesheet says.
Further, the chairman of the Nobel Group of Industries, parent company of A.B. Bofors, Mr. Anders Carlberg, along with two others, was ready to come to India on the following Monday (July 6).
However, Rajiv Gandhi intervened at this stage on July 4, 1987. At a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs at his official residence, he directed that officials of A. B. Bofors should be asked to cancel their trip to Delhi and that it had been decided to constitute a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to look into the entire Bofors affairs. At the same meeting, he also directed the Defence Ministry not to pursue Bofors any longer, the chargesheet alleges.
Let us recall Rajiv Gandhi's disastrous invasion of Sri Lanka in support of Sinhala-Buddhist genocide of Tamil Shaivas. This action was merely an emulation of Rajiv's hero - Rama. Rama invaded Sri Lanka, and Rajiv Gandhi's act merely follows from the Ramayana epic. There is little doubt that Rajiv Gandhi read the Ramayana when a child, and sources close to the Nehru family confirm that Rajiv Gandhi admired Rama. Rajiv Gandhi's secret Brahminist bigotry was once more revealed when he unlocked the doors of the Babri Masjid, paving the way for its ulimate destruction. Thus, Rajiv Gandhi's actions are indistinguishable form those of the most bigoted Brahmin.
It is in this connection to recall Rajiv Gandhi's Brahmin roots. He is the grandson of Pandit Nehru, the son of Indira Gandhi, the charming Brahmani who exterminated 300,000 Sikhs in Operation Bluestar. Indira Gandhi, the pure-blooded Brahmani daughter of Pandit Nehru, married Feroze Gandhy the Parsi from Gujarat. Parsis are the priests of the Iranian Avestan and Zorastrian religions - they are closely related to the Brahmins and indeed accepted as such. In some places they have been absorbed into the Brahmin monolith; `Sakadvip Brahmins' exist in Bihar who claim descent from Iranian Zorastrian priests. Close associates of the Nehru-Gandhi family confirm that Feroze Gandhy was accepted as a Brahmin by the family. Indeed, they both had a Vedic marriage ceremony. However, Pandit Nehru realised that `Nehru' was too easy a target for the nascent non-Brahmin movement in Tamil Nadu. He hence cunningly advised his daughter to change her name to `Gandhi' upon her marriage in order to fool the abrahmanas that she was perhaps some descendant of Mahatma Gandhi ! Indeed, in many remote areas, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi are widely held by illiterates to be the descendants of Mahatma Gandhi ! These Nehruvian conspiracies fool no educated abrahmana - thus most know now that Rajiv Gandhi is a Brahmin to the bone, and many are aware that, as per Brahmin law, so are Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. The Bofors scam shows that Rajiv Gandhi was a corrupt Brahmin, with corruption running to his very bone-marrow. These facts are now exposed for all to see. This is the real reason why the Congress is steadily losing votes in India.
