Explosive revelation by Subramanian Swamy while addressing a gathering of CAs in Ahmedabad on 23rd Dec, 2017 as reported by Indian Express dt 24th Dec, 2017.

Dr Swamy has alleged fudging of Statistics by the  Central Statistics Organisation (CSO) under union Min. of Statistics &Programme Implementation ( MOSPI ) in computing quaterly GDP.

Incidentally, the CSO was founded by Dr Swamy’s  father late Sitaram Subramanian , a well known mathematician and was a one time Director of the Central Statistical Institute, supposedly a rival to P C Mahalanobis who was the founder of ISI, Kolkatta.

Dr Subramanian Swamyreceived the BSc ( Hons) degree in Mathematics from Hindu College of DU and Masters in Statistics from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkatta.He Holds a PhD in Economics from Harvard University .

In view of above , reinforced by CSO officials’ confession of  “ pressures” from above ( Read as Finance ministry ) , Swamy’s innuendos against the CSO’s allegedly unethical practices can’t be taken lightly.A damage control exercise in MOSPI, necessitated by electoral compulsions, is underway.

Prof T C A Anant present Secretary(MOSPI)-cum-Chief Statistician of India will have much to explain to the Parliamentary Standing Committee.Was he not kept in the loop by his DG and ADG in CSO? The present CSI was initially  appointed  in June 2010 for five years. He got three years extension till June 2015 followed by yet another extension that expires in January 2018. Total 8 years He is now seeking extension of his tenure as CSI beyond 8th year beyond Jan 2018.

Heads will roll both in MOSPI and Min of Finance. Chaos, noise , anarchy in Parliament.

In order to be fair , I can only say that the practice of unwarranted interference by MOF in MOSPI’s GDP calculation, sorry, manipulation, has been going on covertly for several decades with full knowledge of Secretaries,Ministers and in collusion with senior officers of both ministries. The tool of GDP was misused with impunity during the Congress-led UPA era. The existing dispensation followed the unscrupulous tradition laid down by its illustrious predecessor under,possibly, electoral compulsions.

PM Modi was expected to expose the vicious UPA practice , instead of giving a free hand to MOSPI  and Finance Ministry in pursuing the same.

All things considered, India must thank Dr Subramanian Swamy for uncovering the malpractices.

Shocking judgement by special CBI court on 2G spectrum allocation scam.

Judicial pronouncement or political narrative,one wonders ?

Bungling by CBI. Its evidences could not stand the judicial scrutiny.

Roles of  high networth industrial houses of India , is in question.

Indictment of former C&AG Vinod Rai  raises more question than solve.

Sudden transfers of   SP and DIG ,CBI charged with investigation of 2G scam at crucial moment ,was baffling.

“It was not A Raja, but Pulok Chatterjee, in consultation with TKA Nair, as he had suppressed the most relevant and controversial part of the letter of A Raja from the then Prime Minister,” said CBI special judge Saini.

Suggestions  were made to the ruling dispensation to get T K A Nair, former Principal Secy and, more importantly, Pulok Chatterji, former JS, later elevated as Secretary to the then PM Manmohan Singh, interrogated by the CBI. Their earlier confessional statements to CBI had the stamp of approval of the then de facto PM.

Move to grill former PM’s aides was reportedly blocked by the all-powerful IAS fraternity. Why? And,at whose behest?And, to protect whom ?

It will be simplistic to suggest that PM MMS was not kept in the loop by his aides.Files on policy matters and appointments  were  regularly shown to the Chairperson, NAC.

Pulok Chatterji wielded enormous power by virtue of his loyalty and proximity to the Cong supremo.  A general factotum to the supremo, he kept  shuttling between the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation and the PMO depending on which party was in power.This was an open secret  much before Sanjay Baru’s memoirs “The Accidental Prime Minister,hit the stands.

In fact, Maun Maun Singh was so much enamoured of PM's chair that he chose to remain silent before formalising all oral orders of the Congress supremo,as conveyed by former PM's aides.

UPA’s caged parrot CBI remained soft to PMO officials ? It is understood that PMO officials' statements were legally and officially vetted to remain in sync with Manmohan Singh's stand. All to protect the supremo.

In order to get at the bottom of of the truth, extra-ordinary steps  are required against all accused. Skeletons  in the cupboard will start tumbling out.

For how long could the real perpetrators be allowed to have a free run.

Any secret deal, one wonders?

The ruling  political dispensation  has much to explain.

The quality of indian politics has ,of late, gone down abysmally low.Sample some dastardly utterances by arrogant politicos.

Sonia labels Modi : Maut ka saudagar .  Priyanka Gandhi blames him for : Khoon ki dalaali .

Rahul calls him : “ Gangoo teli,gandi naali ka keera “. All in the family.

A small-time politician and a Ra Ga's stooge Sandeep Dikshit labels Army Chief General Rawat : " Sarak kaa goonda "

Mani Shankar Aiyar broke all records by blabbering :" Yeh Modi bahut neech kism kaa aadmi hai. Koi sabhyataa nahi hai". The haughty Aiyar , on Dec 7 , 2017,called PM Modi : "Chaiwala in 2014, Neech aadmi in 2017 He takes pride in claiming : " Rahul Gandhi as a Janeu-dhari Brahmin ". The same  knucklehead  had sought Pakistan's help in removing Modi sarkar.

Such elite loose cannons of the dynastic Congress are downright vulgar, uncouth, uncivil and casteist. All at the behest of the dirty-tricks department of the Congress (Rahul ).

PM Modi is OBC. He is dubbed by Aiyar as " Neech " .

Do the congis regard SCs and STs as " Maha- Neech"

A hideously degenerate mindset.

The ,superannuated congis remain moot spectators, vying for photo-ops with the dynasty. Spineless parasytes, paid charlatans . Pliant, malleable nincompoops.

Aiyar's suspension is no solution. Public demands his immediate expulsion from the party. Even, prosecution under  the law of the land for making derogatory references against a particular section of society.

Let us wait for peoples' verdicts in HP and Gujarat polls.

Who knows, the Congress (Rahul) may emerge as a hypertensive, cardiacally - paralysed party, lodged in ICU, heading towards ventilator.
