    Here is the video on Arvind Kejriwal's detailed press conference (with documentary evidence) on illegal commissions in defense deals. This PC is 2 months old, and yet none of the media houses covered it anywhere close to his latter exposes.

    You expect people to watch a 42 minutes press conference???
    It would help if you just gave us the highlights of the press conference...

    They alleged that Abhishek Verma, son of Congress MPs Shrikant Verma and Veena Verma, is a middle man in numerous defense deals and had received kickbaks in some cases. Abhishek, an accused in the Navy war room leak case, is out on bail since 2008.

    The two social activists today released a set of documents titled “Government of India- a well oiled commission rajâ€￾, containing material handed over to them by a US based attorney named C Edmond Allen.

    In December 2010, India imposed anti-dumping duty of $ 100 million on Israeli firm ECI Telecom. According to the documents, ECI Telecom approached Ganton Limited, allegedly a front for Verma, to get the anti-dumping duty rolled back.

    The documents contain a copy of an email allegedly written by Verma to an ECI representative on 11 December 2011, around a month before Minister for External Affairs SM Krishna visited Israel.

    In the email, Abhishek assured the company that Krishna would recommend anti-dumping duty be rolled back.

    “The language of this email gives an impression as if Abhishek Verma has been able to fix the Foreign Affairs Minister. His tall claims in this email need to be verified. If true, they are quite serious,â€￾ said Prashant Bhushan.

    Another allegation against Verma was that his firm took $ 5,30,000 from Rheinmetall RAD, a German based company to get its name removed from the list of blacklisted firms in India.

    Allen, who has provided the documents, used to be Verma’s business partner in the US. However, in 2010, the two fell out and since then Allen has written to various investigating agencies in India, giving them evidence against Verma.

    “Our verification confirmed that these bodies did receive Allen’s complaints,â€￾ Bhushan said.

    Dude, this is a defense scam and you are on a defense forum. Have a bit of morality, and dont behave like the dyed-in-the-wool politician. If these documents could reach Kejriwal and Bhushan (that too in April), I am sure it would have reached the main opposition BJP too. And we all know why it never came out, and there was no call for investigation. It is clear BJP (and congress) will only grandstand on non-corruption issues or on scams in which they didnt get their cut.

    scams dont even surprise me any more
    a deal going through all the way without bribes
    will be more of a shock and surprise than these scams

    Again blaming without substantial evidence, and unless he discloses his source of the email, doesn't sound credible.

    When will Indian politicians learn, this blame game won't take them any further. Bring forward his agenda for development and let people vouch for it. Sorry, this Kejriwal won't earn my respect.

    Sometimes substantial evidences are not available and I am not pro Kejriwal but sometimes it becomes hard to decide who is right and who is wrong

    He doesnt have the resources of CBI. There is enough prima facie evidence to have an independent probe. Whistleblowers, especially in massive deals like this, are always at risk. Their IDs cannot be revealed in public. CBI has every resource to verify this email without having to know the whistleblower.

    Some people have gotten their priorities all wrong. The fight is not between us. You have to ask your party (BJP) how come it did not receive these docs from the whistleblowers inspite of being the principle opposition party to the accused congress party? If it did, why did it not go public with it.

    Another blot on Modi. When is an SIT going to be apponited to probe Modi's role in it?

    'Don't touch what you can't grab', immortal words of Eminem.

    If you can't prove an iota of anything in the court, what's the use of blaming then? Obviously cheap parlor tactics to camouflage his political intentions and motives.

    But it is not the responsibility of whistleblowers and common man to investigate and prosecute. They can only expose prima facie evidence, which CBI should investigate and prosecutor should prosecute. I am sure this is obvious to BJP too, but what can it do? They have their own hands in the commission box, and so have to bring in Eminem for sagely advice!
