2G Spectrum Scam

2G Spectrum Scam

The 2G spectrum scandal involved officials in the government of India illegally undercharging mobile telephony companies for frequency allocation licenses, which they would use to create 2G subscriptions for cell phones. The shortfall between the money collected and the money which the law mandated to be collected is 1,76,379 crore rupees or USD 39 billion. The issuing of licenses occurred in 2008, but the scam came to public notice when the Indian Income Tax Department was investigating political lobbyist Nira Radia.
The government's investigation and the government's reactions to the findings in the investigation were the subject of debate, as were the nature of the Indian media's reactions. The discussion around the reactions to the 2G spectrum scam became known in the media as the Nira Radia tapes controversy.
The truth hardly matters now….. the damage has been done. The 2G spectrum allocation policy of 2008 has been condemned, & the 2G accused have been damnnified beyond repair. The 2G scam monster has been created & fattened to scary proportions.
And worse, in this kind of a poisonous vitreous environment, the 2G trial is proceeding, and charges to be levied on the 2G scam accused will be be decided on 15th September, 2011.
The 2G accused have diligently & painstakingly argued how they are being made scape goats in this matter. But to no avail. However legally sound they might sound, “corrupt and guilty” has already been jammed into the public minds due to the aggressive n relentless coverage of the media on the 1.76 lac crore loss to exchequer report created by CAG.
Who is CAG? Audit of government accounts (including the accounts of the state governments) in India is entrusted to the CAG of India who is empowered to audit all expenditure from the revenues of the union or state governments, whether incurred within India or outside.
The Comptroller and Auditor-General of India is appointed by the President of India[1] following a recommendation by the Prime Minister. On appointment, he/she has to make an oath of affirmation before the President of India.
Parties accused of involvement
The selling of the licenses brought attention to three groups of entities - politicians who had the authority to sell licenses, corporations who were buying the licenses, and media professionals who mediated between the politicians and the corporations.

Politicians involved

  • A.RAJA , the Minister of Communications and Information Technology who sold the licenses

Corporations accused

  • Unitech Group a real estate company entering the telecom industry with its 2G bid; sold 60% of its company stake at huge profit to Telenor after buying licensing
  • Swan Telecom sold 45% of its company stake at huge profit to Emirates Telecommunications Corporation (Etisalat) after buying licensing.
  • Loop Mobile
  • Videocon Telecommunications Limited
  • S Tel
  • Reliance Communications

Media persons accused

  • Nira Radia, a corporate lobbyist whose conversations with politicians and corporate entities were recorded by the government and leaked creating the Nira Radia tapes controversy
  • Barkha Dutt, an NDTV journalist alleged to have lobbied for A. Raja's appointment as minister
  • Vir Sanghvi, a Hindustan Times editor alleged to have edited articles to reduce blame in the Nira Radia tapes
  • Rajdeep Sardesai, a CNN IBN senior editor
The current CAG of India is Vinod Rai, who was appointed on 7 January 2008. He is the 11th CAG of India. “We need such examples so that outstanding civil servants, with the courage of their conviction, can still influence the course of governance in these difficult times.” Said TSR Subramanian, a former cabinet secretary, about Vinod Rai.
Well, what is the boundary upto which ‘CAG’, in particular Vinod Rai, should indeed ‘influence the course of governance’, one may ask?
Shockingly, in recent news, it was revealed that the second in command to CAG, R.P. Singh, Director General of Audit (post and telecommunications) – the man who actually led the audit of the 2G licensing process – was not in favour of making any estimation of the losses suffered by the government on account of the First Come First Served policy it followed. The man was of the opinion that it was impossible to know what the spectrum would have costed if it had been auctioned. He was uncomfortable with the methods that were being suggested to bring up a loss figure, any figure for that matter. The S Tel offer for a pan-India 2G license was meaningless since an offer made unsolicited and out of the sky in this manner has no sanctity in a government process. And also because the offer was later withdrawn.

Advani’s Jan Chetna Yatra to bring change in the system

Advani’s Jan Chetna Yatra to bring change in the system
Launching his "Jan Chetna Yatra" against corruption and Black Money, that would traverse across the country from October 11, 2011 to November 20. Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L K Advani claimed the yatra would bring in a transformation in the existing system on the lines of the JP movement in 1974. He said there was all possibility of the NDA getting a chance to form the next government at the Centre, but remained non-committal on whether he was still in the race for prime ministership. 
"At present, the elections are not so near. The party will decide as to who will be its prime ministerial candidate when the elections come," he said when asked on the issue, clarifying that even in 2009 elections he had not declared his candidature for prime ministership. 
"There is a possibility of early polls under the present situation because of corruption and black money," he said.
Offering tributes to Lok Nayak Jay Prakash Narayan, popularly referred to JP, at his birthplace at Sitabdiara on his birth anniversary, Mr Advani said, inspired by the ideologies of JP, who was instrumental in bringing a change in the guard, he had decided to kick start the rath yatra from here to launch his campaign against corruption and to demand that the Government take steps to bring back black money stashed in illegal bank accounts abroad.
Advani said people were imputing motives now on the purpose of his yatra. "It is not possible for people to imagine that someone can take out a nation-wide yatra on the issue of corruption."

Advani's six yatras in 21 years
From Somnath in 1990 to Sitab Diara in 2011
BJP leader LK Advani, accompanied by his daughter Pratibha Advani and other party leaders including Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley, on Tuesday visited the ancestral house of late Jai Prakash Narayan and garlanded his statue.
They then arrived at the Gandhi Maidan, from where Advani's Jan Chetna Yatra was to roll out, paid tribute to the departed Lok Nayak.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister S.K Modi (BJP), also reached Sitabdiara.
Hitting out at the Congress-led UPA Government over absence of leadership leading to scams and price rise, the veteran leader said, “The mood in India today is one of anger about the quality of politics and governance. This anger has grown on account of inadequacy of leadership provided by the Central Government.”
The Jan Chetana Yatra will be Advani’s sixth for his party in the last 21 years. Let's have a look at his yatras and their motto:
1. Ram Rath Yatra (From Somnath to Ayodhya)
25 September 1990
The Ram Rath Yatra began from Somnath on September 25, 1990, Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya's birth anniversary, and was supposed to culminate at Ayodhya on October 30, after traversing 10,000 km.
Advani was arrested in Samastipur by then Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav before he could reach Ayodhya.
Ram Rath Yatra's aim was to raise three fundamental questions:
•What is secularism? What is communalism? 
•Can national integration be achieved by constantly pandering to minority communalism? 
•Cannot Government reject the cult of minorityism?
Late Pramod Mahajan was behind the idea to redesign a mini-bus as a rath for Advani's Ram Rath Yatra in 1990.

2. Janadesh Yatra (Four-pronged yatra began from different places and ended in Bhopal)
11 September 1993
Advani took the lead in mobilising public opinion and planned a four-pronged yatra led by senior leaders of the party. Thus was born the Janadesh Yatra with the purpose of seeking the people's mandate against the two Bills - the Constitution 80th Amendment Bill and the Representation of People (Amendment) Bill.
The BJP stalled the Bills in Parliament and the debate was deferred, although the Bills were not withdrawn. Then, Advani planned a four-pronged yatra to seek the people’s mandate against the two Bills.
The four yatras began on 11 September 1993 from four corners of the country. Advani led the yatra from Mysore, Bhairon Singh Shekhawat from Jammu, Murli Manohar Joshi from Porbandar and Kalyan Singh from Kolkata.
Travelling through 14 States and two Union Territories, the yatris congregated at Bhopal on 25 September in a massive rally.

3. Swarna Jayanti Rath Yatra (To celebrate 50 years of India’s independence)
18 May 1997
In 1997, when India competed 50 years of India's independence, the BJP decided to pay homage to all the heroes and martyrs of the freedom struggle by visiting different places associated with them across the country.
It was Advani's brainchild and he thought the yatra would help him strengthen his own position and the BJP’s nationalist ideas.
The yatra took place in four continuous phases in 59 days through as many as 21 states across the country.

4. Bharat Uday Yatra (India Shining campaign)
(From Kanyakumari and Amritsar and from Rajkot to Jagannath Puri)
10 March 2004
The Lok sabha poll-oriented road campaign took place in March-April 2004. The much-hyped yatra was flagged off in Kanyakumari on 10 March and reached Amritsar on 25 March. Five days later, it resumed from Rajkot and culminated at Jagannath Puri on 14 April.
The ‘India Shining’ and ‘Feel Good Factor’ campaigns came in for a lot of criticism after NDA's defeat in Lok Sabha polls.

5. Bharat Suraksha Yatra (Against UPA govt's policies against terrorism) 
6 April 2006
The yatra was split into two campaigns, the first one was led by Advani from Dwaraka to Delhi and the other one led by Rajnath Singh from Jagannath Puri to Delhi.

6. Jan Chetna Yatra (From Sitab Diara in Bihar to Delhi)
October 11, 2011
Advani begun his 38-day 'Jan Chetna Yatra' from Jai Prakash Narayan's birthplace Sitabdiara in Saran district on Oct 11. The 84-year-old BJP leader plans to cover around 300 km a day in his modified 'rath' during his 12,000-km anti-corruption yatra.
His yatra aims at creating public awareness against corruption and black money.
Hitting out at the Congress-led UPA Government over absence of leadership leading to scams and price rise, the veteran leader said, “The mood in India today is one of anger about the quality of politics and governance. This anger has grown on account of inadequacy of leadership provided by the Central Government.”
Advani said that his yatra would mobilise people against corruption. “Corruption is eroding faith in democracy and governance.   Time not to change the system, not just the government,” he added.
The rally will head to Uttar Pradesh and will end at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi. It would cover 23 states within a span of 38 days before ending on November 20.

Coal Mine scam of Manmohan Singh

Coal Mine scam of Manmohan Singh

Another scam from UPA stable. This happened right under the nose of honest PM Manmohan Singh who is not weak or lameduck. Maybe again someone misled him, but the enormity of the corruption surpasses the 2G scam.
In this scam coal blocks to the tune of proven reserves of 21.69 billion tons was given away free to private companies and also middlemen.
§  Manmohan Singh, the Prime minister of India


This is the tale of 2006-2007 when Shibu Soren was in jail and the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was holding the coal ministry. In this period Dasi Narayan and Santosh Bagdodiya were ministers of state for coal. It was under the Prime minister that the coal ministry gave out the maximum number of captive coal blocks free of cost. The most glaring and blatant fact is that the coal mines were given out free at the lower than nominal cost of Rs. 100 royalty per ton of coal that would be extracted. It was done at a time when the market price of coal was over Rs. 2000 per ton.
Thus, in this period coal blocks to the tune of proven reserves of 21.69 billion tons was given away free to private companies and also middlemen.
The Prime minister Manmohan Singh was the coal minister during this period and all this bungling and embezzlement happened under his very nose, maximum number of blocks were squandered under him only. Manmohan Singh gave away 63 blocks for free. But why did he do so? During these four years (2006-2010) almost 175 blocks were gifted to brokers and capitalists of different shades.
From 1993 to 2010 208 blocks of coal were alloctaed for free. This tantamounts to coal reserves of 49.07 billion tons. Out of the 208 blocks 113 blocks were given to 184 private companies for free. This amounted to coal reserves equal to 21.69 billion tons. If the value of this coal is calculated at the market price of Rs. 2500 per ton, it comes out to 5,382,830.50 Crores. If out of this Rs. 2500, Rs. 1250 is deduced giving space for Rs. 850 as cost of production, transportation etc and Rs. 400 is deduced as profit, then also the country was inflicted a revenue loss of about Rs. 26 Lakh Crores. So this is the ‘Father and Mother of all Scams’. This is surely India’s biggest and scariest scam ever as also perhaps, the biggest ever in any country in the world.
The UPA government squandered the mineral resources of the nation to which all 120 Crore citizens have an equal right. The breath-bating sum of 26 Lakh Crores could have been used for the multitude of deprived and marginalized of this country.
Latter is the job of Sri Prakash Jaiswal who made no amends whatsoever. Till 2003 40 blocks had been allocated. Out of this only 24 have started production. So why have the licenses of the rest of the 16 companies not cancelled? In 2004: 4 blocks were allotted and none has started production. Similarly, in 2005: 22 blcoks were allotted and only 2 have started production. In 2006: 52, 2007: 51, 2008: 22, 2009: 16 and in 2010 0ne block was allotted. But the report till 18th January says that none have started production. So first the government allots coal blocks to private interests. Then keep the Mines and Minerals Act pending in the Parliament, while the embezzlement keeps going on, then when mines allocated to middlemen does not start production (they were not meant to start production at all) then nobody cancels their licenses. Now none needs to be a rocket scientist to see behind the official maze and fathom what went on between the government and middlemen. Had there been no covert collusion and nexus, only 26 out of 208 mines would not be producing.
It is not so that the presence of middlemen in this process is a matter of conjecture; actually a company in Maharashtra which has nothing to do with coal was allotted a free coal block which it sold for Rs. 500 Crores. Pure and simple profit without investing a penny. So the coal blocks were turned into Dalal Street wherein coal was bought and sold like shares with no accruing benefits to the people of India.


BJP has demanded investigation as of July 2011, more to be seen.

Boeing USA- Air India Scam

Boeing USA- Air India Scam

A scam where alleged kickbacks were payed by Boeing USA for the Air India deal worth 230 USD  million. The kickbacks were routed through Hasan Ali Khan, the notorious benami for many politicians in India.

People involved

§  Jagdish Tytler, then Civil Aviation minister
§  Hasan Ali Khan
§  Kashinath Tapuriah


§  Boeing Commercial Airplane Co
§  Air India
§  RM Investments & Trading Co, a firm owned by Tapuriah


Hasan Ali Khan, said to be the country's biggest tax evader, had made a killing as a consultant when he had earned a commission of US $ 11.5 million for a Boeing deal with Air India in 1986-87. At the exchange rate then, the amount works out to over Rs 14 crore.
This startling information is part of a 2007 Enforcement Directorate (ED) Case Information Report filed as an annexure in the 1000-plus-page charge sheet filed recently by the ED in a special court under the Prevention of Money-Laundering Act against Khan and his associate Kashinath Tapuriah.
The civil aviation minister at that time was Jagdish Tytler. The report says that as consultants of Boeing Commercial Airplane Co, Seattle, USA, an amount of US $ 11.5 million was earned as commission from the sale of two Boeing 727 aircraft to Air India in 1986-87. The deal was worth US $ 230 million.
The charge sheet mentions that the amount was not repatriated to India by RM Investments & Trading Co, a firm owned by Tapuriah. The charge sheet, however, does not specify who among the accused earned the commission.
There are clear-cut indications of corruption money involved in mega transactional deals representing commissions (which appear to be illegal) received on sale of Boeing Aircrafts held by Air India. It involves loss to the exchequer, the ED has said.
The transactions, according to the ED, are part of a series of transactions that involve several violations of the Indian Banking Law as well as an effort to manipulate the business contacts with criminal intent of stashing unaccounted assets in Switzerland, a tax haven.
The ED also stated that from the report received from the additional director of income-tax, Mumbai, it was clear that returns of income or returns of net wealth were not filed by Hasan Ali Khan, his wife Rheema Khan, Faizal Abbas, and their involvement in more than $ 8 billion of laundered money was clear; the money was supposed to be stashed away in UBS, Zurich, as confirmed by the confirmation letter dated December 12, 2006, permitting withdrawal of $ 6 billion.
The report also points out at a sudden increase in Khan's bank deposits in 2006. "The increase in bank deposits maintained in UBS Bank, Zurich, from US$6.62 billion as on August 31, 2006 to US$8 billion as on December 8, 2006 is showing an exceptionally high increase of more than $1.38 billion in less than four months, the report said.
The ED further alleged that Khan had purchased several high-value properties in cash and suspected them to be the proceeds of crime. This includes flats in affluent parts of Mumbai and Pune and a property at Akbar Manzil, Hyderabad, and a hotel Chateau Gutsch in Switzerland purchased for approximately $ 25 million in 2001. Others of Khans cash purchases include a fleet of cars, including two Mercedes and a Porsche, and 15-20 horses valued at several lakhs of rupees. The report also lists a huge amount cash and jewellery worth crores that were recovered during income-tax department searches.
Hasan Ali Khan was the person who has strong links with Sonia Gandhi through Ahmed Patel (Sonia’s Political Advisor). So the investigations are slow. Hasan Ali Khan controls Sonia’s illegal money and invest it different foreign Banks.


No specific investigation was launched into the kickback and the conspiracy involved. Infact the scam came to light only when the Supreme court compelled Enforcement Directorate to go after Hasan Ali Khan.

Goa Chief Minister’s iron ore mining scam

Goa Chief Minister’s iron ore mining scam
The Indian state of Goa has been hit by revelations of unauthorized iron ore mining, with claims that at least one third of all exports of the mineral last year were extracted illegally. The alleged fraud, detailed in a report implicating senior politicians, police, government officials and the mining lobby, is thought to have cost the local economy 40 billion rupees ($800 million) in the last five years.
Some 18 to 20 million tonnes of the record total 54 million tonnes exported in the last financial year was illegally mined, according to the committee, which said there had been breaches in nearly half of all mining licences.
The illegally exported ore is estimated to have been worth 11 billion rupees while the unpaid duty totalled some 1.2 billion rupees.
Goa chief minister Digambar Kamat's ruling Congress party have rubbished the widely leaked report, claiming it is biased because the committee chairman also leads the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Kamat has denied any wrongdoing and told the assembly last week: "Ultimately the truth will prevail because there are records to support it. We have not exceeded the environment clearance limits."
But those dependent on mining fear for their livelihoods. The total economy of the state would collapse if the mining industry is stopped. Mining is Goa's second-largest industry and the biggest employer after tourism, employing 75,000 people directly and in related services, particularly transport. Nearly half of India's total iron ore exports come from Goa.
Demand for the low-grade mineral found inland from Goa's famous beaches took off in 2005, with fast-growing China a major recipient alongside steel-producing countries such as Japan and South Korea. About 10 billion rupees a year are paid in royalties by companies mining government-owned land in Goa, while export duties contribute 40 billion rupees annually to the exchequer. The public accounts committee is calling for the federal Central Bureau of Investigation to probe the alleged fraud. 

Scam of Adarsh Society flat

Scam of Adarsh Society flat

Set up supposedly with the aim of “accommodating and rewarding the heroes of the Kargil operation and those who had laid down their lives for the protection of the motherland,” if one looks at the initial list of society members of the Adarsh Co-operative Housing Society, it comprised 40 members and included mostly defence personnel. Now the list stands at 103, out of which only 37 members belong to the army and just three members have anything to do with the Kargil war.
The  beneficiaries of the scam involving allotment of flats in the Adarsh Co-operative Housing Society in Colaba. Four former Chief Ministers — Ashok Chavan, Vilasrao Deshmukh, Sushilkumar Shinde and Narayan Rane — all of whom have been, ironically enough, potential contenders for Chavan’s post and at some point served as the sanctioning authority for the project, also stand accused of owning flats under ‘benami’ names in Adarsh.
Deshmukh, who is currently the union minister for heavy industries, reportedly owns three apartments — each one a 3-BHK of 1,076 sq ft carpet area — on the 15th floor. The flats (1502, 1503 and 1504) are in the names of Uttam Ghakare, Kiran Bhadange and Amol Kharbari — real or fictitious individuals whose relationship with Deshmukh is not clear.
Union power minister Sushil Kumar Shinde is said to own a 3-BHK flat in the name of Major NW Khankhoje, while former state revenue minister Shivajirao Patil Nilengakar allegedly owns two flats in the name of Dr Arun V Dawle and Sampat R Khidse (flat no 2602).
The Adarsh gravy train has more members on board: Maharashtra revenue minister Narayan Rane too is accused of owning two 3-BHK flats on the 17th floor, in the name of Girish Pravinchandra Mehta and Rupali
The project had been approved by Chavan himself in 2002 when he was the revenue minister. Deshmukh, as the then CM, had given the initial permissions for the construction of Adarsh Society, while Shinde, when he was the CM in 2004, gave the final sanction for the project.
Meanwhile, two of Chavan’s relatives who had been allotted flats in Adarsh, his sister-in-law Seema Sharma and brother-in-law Madanlal Sharma, resigned from the society on Friday. Chavan’s mother-in-law Bhagwati Sharma was also a member of the society, but she passed away earlier this year.
The Adarsh hall of shame
Some of the bureaucrats and politicians who are accused of fraudulently obtaining flats for themselves or their relatives:
Ashok Chavan, Ex-chief minister, Maharashtra Jairaj Phatak, ex-municipal commissioner (flat in the name of his son Kanishka J Phatak) Ramanand Tiwari, state information commissioner (in the name of son, Onkar Tiwari) Suresh Prabhu, Shiv Sena (own name) Pradeep Vyas, ex-collector, Mumbai ( in the name of his wife and fellow IAS officer Seema Vyas) Jitender Awhad, NCP (own name) Indris Kundan, ex-collector, Mumbai (own name)

Scams of Jaganmohan Reddy S/o. YRS Reddy (Late Andhra Chief Minister, Congress)

Scams of Jaganmohan Reddy 
S/o. YRS Reddy (Late Andhra Chief
Minister, Congress)

Surprisingly 2 companies with different directors and shareholders share the exact same registered address 
Amritdham Suite No. 5 & 6, Nityanand Nagar, Bakultala,Howrah 711109, they also have the same auditor T N DATTA and sons who incidentally is the auditor for two more calcutta companies known for extreme honesty Austral coke and Gremach infra  The directors of both companies though are completely different 

Jagati publications was incorporated in Jan 2006. In 2007 and 2008 14 unknown loss making companies including stocknet and artelligence bio made investments of 45 crores in Jagati publications ie they bought shares for 45 crores 

"Under the guise of buying shares, they have paid kickbacks to Jagan," alleges TDP President N. Chandrababu Naidu. "Otherwise, how else can Jagati Publications allot shares at such high premium within months of incorporation?" 

In 2008, auditing firm Deloitte estimated the worth of the publications, which owns the powerful 26-edition Telugu newspaper chain Sakshi with a total circulation of 12 lakh copies, at Rs 3,500 crore. It is odd that the 
balance sheets of 14 companies which invested Rs 42.56 crore in 2007 and 2008 in Jagati show an accumulated loss of Rs 68.95 lakh. 

The main ones - Stocknet International and Artillegence Bio Innovation-are listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange and the other 12 are shareholders in the 2 listed companies ......their total accumulated loss (net worth)is nearly 70 lakhs yet they had 45 crores to invest in Jaati Publications (owner of Sakshi newspapers and Sakshi channel ) 

These include Delton Exim Pvt. Ltd, Kirti Electro Systems, Bay Inland Finance, Bhaskar Fund Management Ltd, Cliftons Pearson Export and Agencies Ltd, Ganga Builders Ltd, Ispat Sheets Ltd, Gromore Fund Management Company Ltd, New Outlook Securities, Super Finance Ltd, Shakti Ispat Production Pvt. Ltd and Shivalaxmi Exports Ltd. 

Laffan software and Conrad Telefilms 2 of the 4 Assam based companies banned by SEBI from accessing the market also held a stake in artelligence bio in 2008 

The bank accounts of these companies are in the Gol Park branch of HDFC Bank and the Baliganj branch of the South Indian Bank Ltd in Kolkata.

Several of these firms have been or are being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India for unfair trade practices and fraud.
CBI freezes Jagan’s bank accounts
The CBI on Aug 19, 2011, Friday frozen operation of 25 bank accounts in HDFC and ICICI belonging to some companies under question and also the Jagati publications. 
They said the search operations continued in many offices and documents and computer hard disks were secured for examination and processing.

“We have also seized several mobile SIM cards found in the possession of corporate officials of Jagati publications besides that of Bharati Cements and Hetero Drugs,” said a source in the CBI.

V V Lakshminarayana, the joint director of the CBI, heading the investigations said the search operations might last a few more days as they were yet to question officials of several other companies involved with the Y S Jagan and EMAAR deals.

The CBI continued raids on the offices of a mining company at Bayyaram in Khammam district and also that of Harita Fertilizers in Nalgonda town belonging to Ravindranath Reddy, a cousin of YSR.

As the CBI drive continued for the second day at the offices of Jagan’s homes in Kadapa, Pulivendula and also offices at Mumbai and Delhi, advocates of Jagan made a vain bid to procure a copy of the FIR filed in the court.
The CBI drive on Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has taken the wind out of the rebel Congress legislators supporting him.
Stunned by the search and seizure operation on Jagan’s properties and that of several industrialists who invested in his companies, the 20-odd  Congress MLAs and MPs met at the office of the YSR Congress here on Friday.
