Bric a Brac : Chidambaram’s BJP friends

back in rajya sabha

arun-jaitly-gstTHE Central Bureau of Investigation raided the house of former Union minister Palaniappan Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram in connection with the alleged criminal misconduct in grant of FIPB approvals. Congress leaders are curious and discussing why despite the massive raids and alleged corruption of billion dollars, Karti Chidambaram is roaming scot free as if nothing has happened. Though Chidambaram is a very powerful politician, the Congress Party was tight-lipped on the raids and no leader came out and defended Chidambaram. When he was allotted a ticket for the Rajya Sabha recently, everybody was surprised. Insiders reveal that Sonia Gandhi was reluctant to send him to the Rajya Sabha but Chidambaram ‘intelligently’ convinced the high command and got elected from Maharashtra. Why is the CBI and Directorate of Enforcement so generous with the Chidambaram family. Insiders disclose that Chidambaram is being helped by a very powerful minister of the Modi government. It is being discussed in the central hall that the ‘powerful BJP minister’ is an admirer and impressed with the intellect of Chidambaram. It is learnt that Chidambaram also helped the said minister once when former BJP President Nitin Gadkari’s premises were raided in Mumbai and Pune. In politics, nobody does something for nothing: there’s always a quid pro quo. gfiles end logo
