Did Kejriwal Demand Money from Ambanis for his Trust ?

Daijiworld Media Network - New Delhi

New Delhi, Nov 11 : In a sensational revelation, highly-placed sources at New Delhi have indicated that Arvind Kejriwal or his representatives had requested funds for his trust from Mukesh Ambani and his brother Anil Ambani in his fight against corruption. The clear denial to fund Kejriwal's trust had angered Kejriwal and reportedly led him to expose Mukesh Ambani last week.

If sources to be believed, representatives of Mukesh Ambani are expected to expose details before the media in the coming days.

An activist with allegiance to Anna Hazare in New Delhi, though he does not approve of the allegation, says the possibility cannot be ruled out either, as Kejriwal had mainly targeted Mukesh Ambani, and later named his brother Anil Ambani in the Swiss account expose. Kejriwal even exposed names of Jet Airways chief Naresh Goel, Birlas and other leading owners of corporate houses, but interestingly, he has not made any reference to Tatas, one of the topmost corporates in the country.

It was reported last week that Kejriwal's Public Cause Research Foundation had received donations from Tata (Rs 25 lac), Infosys' Narayan Murthy (around Rs 1.2 crore), Vallabh Bansali, Religare Enterprises CEO Shachindra Nath, Sanjiv Bikhchandani of Naukri.com, Bangalore-based Kasturi Trust, Jagan Nath Gupta Memorial Education Society and a few others.

Tata and Narayana Murthy came out in the open to confirm the donation, but clarified that it was not for his political agenda or motives, but for his RTI campaign.

If reports about Kejriwal's demand from Ambanis are found to be true, there could be a huge storm and war of words between Kejriwal, politicians and the corporates. End of the day, the media will have a field day!

    These Ambani's are corrupt to the bone. They have gone stinking rich at the cost of the common man as they are hands in glove with all the top and bottom political parties in India. Now these corrupt parties have told the Ambani's to tell the media some false stories - that of them refusing to give adonation to Kejriwal etc.etc.and that is why he is targetting the Ambani brothers. Political Parties, please do not think the public are fools and will forget the multi crore "SCAMS" by which you'll looted the nation - all to fill your personal bank accounts only.

    Ambanis are known to be corrupt. I was told that the late dhirubhai ambani told his utives to give everybody even to a lamp post. Kam pe ayega he used to say. They have bribed all the parties. Hence it is hard to believe that kejriwal demanded donation and they refused to pay.

    Dear friends, Corporates donate to all political parties, and politicians go to all top corporates for donation. But, the corruption has gonre beyond limits and scams have gone beyond counts. Now, it is better to cleam up the system and to clean up this system, if any corporates are also joining their hands it should be welcomed. Probably, they also might have understood/realised that there are lot of flaws in our system. All Individuals and Corporates should think of bringing in some discipline for better tomorrow. Enough is enough. Let us garner funds for the betterment of common people and to build a better India for the next generation.Let us join together and clean up our system.

    In India most of the public project like roads, railway, bridges, dams,etc. never completes within contract period. They are stretching many years in order to pour money from the govt by the corrupt politians. Never distribute the wealth of the country to common man. Chawl sytem of houses are still at Mumbai, but billionare person is constructing luxury building near to chawal system, but never help to these poor people. I admire Mr, Kejirwal for addressing the issues, then only at least some portion of corruption will be stop. But he should not take any steps against democracy.

    Let us take the example of Ambani Brothers, who draws salary of 2.5 to 3 Crores of Rupees per month from their respective parents Company. Then why they want to keep just 100 to 200 Crores of Rupees in Swiss Bank Account? Had they stash more than 1,000 Crores it would have raised the question. Just compare the Income generated by one of the Bangalore based Corporator Gowramma, she meagerly draws salary between Rupees 25,000/- to 30,000/- per month but she has total wealth of 16.5 Crores in her kitty!!! So, all together if Ambani Brothers accumulate their total salary dividends commission for 3 to 4 months, they might be richer by 100 to 200 Crores!!! It is true that Reliance Industries never associate themselves in any social responsibility like Tatas are doing in India. For me Kejriwal is right to disclose Ambani Brothers Swiss Bank Account details if they have it and there is nothing wrong with Kejriwal asking donations for his trust for one of the right cause. Because in India we have so many NGOs’ takes donations from foreign Countries but utilize the funds for their well beings or target few Political Party or Individuals only

    Majority of the comments here are biased and passed without any knowledge of Mr. Kejrival's movement. I salute people like Ismail Sheikh, Moodbidri, Suhail Mangalore and so on who know the truth and situation in India.

    Now Ambanis will undoubtedly try to save their face by maligning Kejrival. As far as I am concerned, I will ensure that whatever little time I get I shall support Kejrival and if possible even in terms of finance within my limit.

    His is a great movement and every patriotic Indian is expected to support him if we want justice in our day to day life.

    Friends, remember, Ambanis have looted the whole country with their unholy nexus with corrupt politicians and buraucrats. Actually, today India is run by Ambanis and not by PM. I have been telling this before Kejriwal's expose.

    Remember, today, there is no difference between Dawood Ibrahim and Ambanis. Only the modus operandi is different.

They cannot withstand the popular support he is gaining day by day. It's hard to believe that he will stoop down to such level as to expose them for not giving donations to his trust.

    I'm just quoting Rahul (USA) 1 day ago in TOI Comments: I know Arvind since our IIT Days. Since I know the man like the back of my hand, it really pains me in reading all these misinformed opinions of him. He is one of the most intelligent & knowledgeable persons I have come across in my life & definitely the most selfless & honest. On those IIT Days also, while we all were thinking about our career & thinking of leaving India at the 1st opportunity, he was hell bent on doing something to change the face of India. He was a big fan of V.P. Singh those days & was very inspired with his honesty (bofors) & efforts to achieve social justice (mandal commission). He was almost a non-believer & hated BJP for the mandir movement. Whoever is accusing him to be a RSS/BJP agent has no idea what he/she is talking about.........Those doubting his honesty/integrity should be informed that he was Joint Commissioner, Income Tax Dept in Delhi when he resigned from IRS. By conservative estimates, officer of this rank in Delhi/Mumbai makes atleast Rs. 1 crore per month from external sources (you can make out what these external sources can be).........How many of us can dedicate our life to the nation when such a lucrative career is infront of us? I am making USD 125000/month here & he was 10 times brighter than me..........................I appeal to all Indians (irrespective of caste/religion) to not let go of this chance to reclaim our country from these corrupt politicians. It is because of our "Chalta Hai" & "Dont Care" attitude that things have come to this.....................And lastly, if you can't do anything for the country, at least please don't accuse Kejriwal of being communal/arrogant/dishonest without checking the facts. We all batchmates (belonging to various castes/ religions) believe that if India can elect 100 leaders like Kejriwal to the Parliament, the country will be counted among the best in 10 years time..
