Congress and its ministers just can’t stop getting named in scams. On Saturday news reports came in that Maharashtra Congress MLA Kripashankar Singh’s son was paid Rs. 5.5 Crore by Dynamix Realty, which is a prime accused in the 2G scam.
By now we all know A Raja of Tamilnadu’s Congress ally DMK was heavily involved in the 2G scam. But obviously a scam of this proportion was not done by A Raja alone. There were several other ministers and politicians involved. Today’s news reports suggests son of a Congress MLA from Maharashtra was p[aid Rs. 5.5 Crore by Dynamix Realty, which is a subsidiary of D B Realty.
This might not have come to light if a PIL was not filed in Bombay High Court. The PIL shows that money was deposited in the names of MLA’s son and daughter-in-law, Ankita. The first deposit of Rs 50 lakh was made on August 23, 2008, in the joint bank account of Narendra and Ankita. The second entry of Rs 2 crore was made on January 1, 2009 in Narendra’s account, while the third and the fourth deposits of Rs one crore each (also in account of Narendra) were made on February 10 and 27, 2009 respectively.
While son Narendra has said that the money was taken as a loan and was returned, it’s highly unlikely. It’s quite obvious that if money was given, it ws not given to Kripashankar’s son, but to the MLA himself. We just hope names of all those involved in the scam soon comes out to the front and Congress at least doesn’t shield them this time as it has been shielding accused over the past few decades.
