My Reply to IIT guy, Nitin Gupta's letter to Rahul Gandhi !

Nitin Gupta (Rivaldo) has written a letter to Rahul Gandhi asking some questions.
Many of you might have come across this Letter on Facebook.



Nitin Gupta Writes :ON Rahul Gandhi: "I feel ashamed to call myself an INDIAN after seeing what has happened here in UP".

REPLY: In Uttar Pradesh, Congress under Rahul Gandhi became the No.2 Party with 21 MP's and currently stands at No.1 Position with 22 MP's , after Election 2009. Simple wikepedia can verify this fact

EVIDENCE: Simple Wikipedia Poves it !  Election Commission Of India Website Also Proves it

Nitin Gupta Writes :* First Ask Pranav Mukherjee, Why isn't he giving the details of the account holders in the Swiss Banks.

REPLY: You are totally confusing two issues.

1. The Bank Account details had been provided by LGT Bank of Germany. 26 Names were given to the Supreme Court by the UPA Govt in a sealed envelope. On a PIL filed by Ram Jethmalani, the SC directed the Government of India to establish a probe agency, a Special Investiagation Team (SIT) to probe these people. The Govt. under the taxation treaty with Germany cannot make these names public. But it can only make it public in Legal Proceedings. That is the view of Supreme Court also. So as and when the SC directs the Government, Pranab Mukherjee will give the details.

EVIDENCE: Did Government Misinterpreted DTAA with Germany on Secrecy of Bank Account Holders

2. India and Switzerland has a Double Taxation Treaty which was revised in 2009 itself.

In August 2010, Pranab Mukherjee made a statement regarding the treaty in Both the houses of Parliament

Indian black money: 'Switzerland to take steps against tax evasion'

EVIDENCE: Indian Express Newsreport

Infact, in Jan 2011, alone, Government under FM Pranab Mukherjee, detected undisclosed income of about Rs 15,000 crore in last 18 months, due to focused search operations by the Income Tax Department. Rs. 34,601 crore. were collected by Directorate of International Taxation

EVIDENCE: Hindu Newsreport

Nitin Gupta writes:* Ask your Mother, Who is impeding the Investigation against Hasan Ali?

REPLY: Hasan Ali is being probed by ED, IT and the concerned investigation agency. The Supreme Court is monitering the probe on day to day basis

Infact No Less than L K Advani has publically apologised to Rahul Gandhi's mother for making wild allegations against the Gandhis in a BJP report.
EVIDENCE: Times Of India Newsreport

Nitin Gupta writes:* Ask her, Who got 60% Kickbacks in the 2G Scam ?

REPLY: It is interesting how Nitin Gupta knows the exact Percentage of the Kicbacks taken by whom, but Never names that person. He should have the balls to name that person, If he has accused somebody !

In the case of 2G scam, Let Nitin Gupta know

The whole mess of 2G was started by Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee and his Govt. He bailed out private players in Telecom through a Govt package when his Govt was just a caretaker Govt (as elections were already declared)

Vajpayee bails out private Telecom operators
EVIDENCE: Government PIB Feature| Indian Express Report defending his decision to then President K R Nayanan, who objected to such a package

Vajpayee knew of telecom scam, charges Surjeet
EVIDENCE: report
The whole 'TELECOM TANGLE' of the Vajpayee regime
EVIDENCE: Hindu Article

Then his ministers the royal highness Pramod Mahajan, Arun Shourie got involved and Vajpayee continued shuffling ministers to hide facts. Not even an FIR was lodged for the Money Pramod Mahajan made from Reliance.

Many Flip-Flops in Telecom During BJP Rule: Tata
EVIDENCE: Outlook Article

Arun Shourie proceeded with the TARIFF SCAM:Governmental intervention reduces partly the TRAI-mandated tariff burden on the users of BSNL and MTNL landlines, but the two state-owned companies are being increasingly disabled by a policy regime designed to promote private operators.

Nitin Gupta writes:* Kalamadi is accused of a Few hundred Crores, Who Pocketed the Rest in the Common Wealth Games?

REPLY:  The Prime Minister formed a High Level Committee to probe the CWG game irregularities.Every inch of detail of that Report called the "Shunglu Committee Report" is in Public Domain on the official Government website.

Nitin Gupta can have a look at that report and judge who got what
EVIDENCE: Shunglu Committee Report

Nitin Gupta writes:* Ask Praful Patel what he did to the Indian Airlines? Why did Air India let go of the Profitable Routes ?
REPLY: Air India was a loss making entity during the previous NDA regime too. The BJP under NDA nearly sold off Air India , but under stiff opposition from its workers, it had to relent. Praful Patel on the other hand tried to enfuse energy into Air India by procurring new planes, by new branding, new routes and new airports.


Newer Greenfield Airports are being proposed and are being constructed. Airports have been constructed. Air Strips are being revised and New Terminals (like T3 in New Delhi) have been constructed New Airports in Bangalore and Hyderabad have also been constructed.

EVIDENCE: Press Release (PIB)

Nitin Gupta writes :* Ask Manmohan Singh. Why/What kept him quiet for so long?

REPLY: The PM has given Three Major interviews/interactions - 1) To All Eminent Newspaper Editors 2) To Editors and Journalists of Electronic Media 3) To Newspaper Editors .

Whenever the PM travels abroad, there is always a media session on board in his special flight. According to the PM's official website , Since May 2009, (ie when UPA-2 came to power) the PM has taken 18 such foreign visits .ThereforeThe PM has spoken to the media not less than 20 times in 2 years. Which I think is still a little less. Now in two years, the PM has given sound bytes on occasions of National importance in functions of Rashtrapati Bhawan and also when heads of state of foreign countries arrive in India. In 2010, itself- All the heads of G-5 countries - UK, US, Russia, China and France paid state level visits to India. The PM spoke on All occasions. So we can easily take the number to almost 30 (assuming that the PM provided his precious sound bytes to our decibel hungry media in functions in Rashtrapati Bhavan)

The Congress Party has had atleast 12 conventions (According AICC website), including the Plenary Session and the 125th Foundation day celebrations in the last 2 years. On every occasion the PM has spoken to the people. Which takes the number to 42

The PM has also spoken to the Nation on Independence Day, Has also gone on air before the Ayodhya verdict. He has also spoken many times in the Parliament. From the debate on Price Rise (Cut Motion) , to issues such as Pakistan, to 2G scam , Debate on Wikileaks etc, Anna Hazare, Corruption etc.The PM always makes it a point to share his views on Budget- whether railways or general.

The PM has also addressed various political rallies in State Elections post 2009. The PM speaks whenever he inaugurates National Projects like T3 Terminal of the Delhi Airport or dedicates Ports or Oil refineries to the Nation, or when he visits convocation ceremonies, when he visits states, IIT's and IIM's.Adding all this we can easily take our total to a comfortable 70

So in 28 months of UPA Government the PM has spoken 2.5 times a month to either the media or the people- Which is Once in 12 days. Which is certainly not a bad record for a PM who is often labelled as Apolitical, Technocrat and Maintains a Low Profile.

So Who says Dr. Manmohan Singh is silent?

Nitin Gupta Writes:* Are Kalmadi and A Raja are Scapegoats to save Big Names like Harshad Mehta was in the 1992 Stock Market Scandal ?

REPLY: There was a JPC which proved Harshad Mehta scandal, that JPC couldn't conclude the "Big Names" you are talking about? If you know about those "Big Names" , Kindly do the Nation a favour by naming them publically and filing a PIL against them. Nation will be thankful to you.

Kalmadi and Raja are in Tihar Jail because the Supreme Court wants to keep them there. If the Supreme Court finds out any other "Big Name", they will sent them to jail too.

Nitin Gupta Writes:* Who let the BHOPAL GAS TRAGEDY Accused go Scot Free? (20,000
People died in that Tragedy)

REPLY: Scot Free? Quite a pathetic rhetorical question it is !
You don't even know the chronology of events of the Bhopal Tragedy.

EVIDENCE: Bhopal Chronology

When the Supreme Court rejected every petition in the case.
The Central Government and the Union Cabinet assured more compensation for the victims.

Bhopal gas leak: Govt wants 1,500 crore from Dow
EVIDENCE: Times Of India

Centre to release fund for Bhopal gas victims

SC notice to MNCs on compensation to Bhopal gas victims
EVIDENCE: HT- Livemint Reports

Nitin Gupta Writes:* Who ordered the State Sponsored Massacre of SIKHS in 84?

REPLY: You are clearly stuck in past. It is no secret that some of the Congress party members were involved in some incidents which took in Delhi.

Now comes the question of "Who ordered". For that, Please read The Nanavati Commission Report on 1984 riots which Clearly absolves Rajiv Gandhi of any wrong doing and infact applauds Rajiv Gandhi for his concern.

Quoting Page No's 181 and 182  of the Report:

"It was suggested that Shri Rajiv Gandhi had told one of his officials that Sikhs should be taught a lesson.  The Commission finds no substance in that allegation.  The evidence in this behalf is very vague.  It is also not believable that Shri Rajiv Gandhi would have stated so to an official assuming that some conversation took place between him and that official. It does not become clear that in respect of which subject the conversation had taken place and in which context Shri Rajiv Gandhi is stated to have said “Yes we must teach them a lesson”.

The evidence on the other hand suggest that Shri Rajiv Gandhi had showed much concern about what was happening in  Delhi.  He had issued an appeal for remaining calm and maintaining communal harmony.  In view of the complaints received by him that people were not able to contact the police on telephone No. 100, he had immediately called some police officers and told them to take immediate action so that anyone who wanted to contact the police could do so.  He had even visited the affected areas on the night of 1-11-84.  There is absolutely no evidence suggesting that Shri Rajiv Gandhi or any other high ranking Congress(I) leader had suggested or organized attacks on Sikhs.  Whatever acts were done, were  done  by the local Congress(I) leaders and workers, and they appear to have done so for their personal political reasons"

EVIDENCE: Commission Report

Infact there is evidence to suggest that RSS elements took place in riots in some areas and assisted in killing innocent Sikhs  

EVIDENCE: Milligazette

Interesting Trivia: Navjot Sidhu dubs anti-Sikh riots as stray incidents
EVIDENCE: The Tribune

Nitin Gupta Writes:* Please read more about, How Indira Gandhi pushed the Nation Under Emergency in 76-77, after the HC declared her election to Lok Sabha Void!

REPLY: Nitin Gupta wants to remain in past. Yes Indira Gandhi declared Emergency. Lost the subsequent election.Janata Party Govt under Morarji Desai was formed in 1977. It did not even complete 2 years because of its internal squabbles. Indira Gandhi returned to power in 1979 again with a thumping majority. We all know this history. Every school kid knows!

Now can we question what the Morarji Desai led Janata Party did to this NATION?

1. People soon got disillusioned by the Janata Party Govt, including the Press

2.  Kanti Desai, son of the then Prime Minister Morarji Desai was involved in financial embezzlement and brought discredits to his father.
EVIDENCE: Hindustan

3. Janata Govt went overboard and misused Article 356 sacking all Cong-ruled state governments.
EVIDENCE: Hindustan Times

4. Due to this Vendetta Politics, Indira Gandhi again came to power
EVIDENCE: The Post Newspaper

5. The 6th 5 year plan failed with Corporations like IBM and Coco Cola being kicked out of the country
EVIDENCE: Wikipedia

Nitin Gupta Writes: Dear Rahul, to refresh your memory, you were arrested/detained by the FBI the BOSTON Airport in September 2001.You were carrying with you $ 1,60,000 in Cash. You couldn't explain whyyou were carrying so much Cash.(Incidentally He was with his Columbian girlfriend Veronique Cartelli,ALLEGEDLY, the Daughter of Drug Mafia. 9 HOURS he was kept at theAirport. Later then freed on the intervention of the then Prime Minister
Mr. Vajpayee.. FBI filed an equivalent of an FIR in US and released him.When FBI was asked to divulge the information, by Right/Freedom toInformation Activists about the reasons Rahul was arrested ...FBI asked for a NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE from Rahul Gandhi.
So Subramaniyam Swami wrote a Letter to Rahul Gandhi, " If you have NOTHING to HIDE, Give us the Permission"

REPLY: Was Rahul Gandhi really arrested at Boston in 2001?
EVIDENCE: Credible Blog Analysis with definite media reports

The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Wednesday rejected a PIL on Congress MP Rahul Gandhi's alleged detention in Boston airport in the US in 2001.|

EVIDENCE: Times Of India


According to a Provision in the Citizenship Act, A Foreign National who becomes a Citizen of India, is bounded by the same restrictions,which an Indian would face, If he/she were to become a Citizen of Italy.(Condition based on principle of reciprocity)Now Since you can't become a PM in Italy, Unless you are born there.Likewise an Italian Citizen can't become Indian PM,unless He/She is not born here!Dr. SUBRAMANIYAM SWAMI (The Man who Exposed the 2G Scam) sent a letter to the PRESIDENT OF INDIA bringing the same to his Notice.PRESIDENT OF INDIA sent a letter to Sonia Gandhi to this effect, 3:30PM, May 17th, 2004.Swearing Ceremony was scheduled for 5 PM the same Day. Manmohan Singh was brought in the Picture at the last moment to Save Face!!

REPLY: Dr. Swamy never stops flattering himself that he prevailed over former President APJ Abdul Kalam and thereby prevented Sonia from becoming the PM of India. He claims to have descended just in the right time to educate kalam on some provision in Indian Citizenship Act.

Last time I heard, constitutional pundits were still searching for such invisible reciprocity provision in Sec 5 of Citizenship,1955 ( along with all subsequent amendments)

EVIDENCE: Official Citizenship Act

But we were never talking about status of Sonia's Citizenship by Registration or Naturalization but eligibility of a such a citizen to occupy the post of PM.Even if someone finds such reciprocity clause between the lines in the law, Swamy's storyline will stick only if one can prove that Italy too has such a provision.

All this is immaterial. Press Records of Rashtrapati Bhavan prove that the then president APJ Abdul Kalam never raised the issue of Citizenship with Sonia.


19-05-2004 : Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi


It has been reported in a section of the press that the President Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam had discussed the citizenship issue with Smt. Sonia Gandhi when she met him yesterday at Rashtrapati Bhavan. This is contrary to facts. It did not figure in the discussions at all."

Press releases dating back to 2004 are unavailable on presidentofIndia's website. They were removed after 2007 Presidential elections.But one can always get a hard copy from President's Secretariat).

EVIDENCE: Press information Bureau's link

Nitin Gupta writes: THINK ABOUT YOURSELF.You go to Harvard on Donation Quota. ( Hindujas Gave HARVARD 11 million dollars the same year, when Rajiv Gandhi was in Power)

Then you are expelled in 3 Months/ You Dropped out in 3 Months....(Sadly Manmohan Singh wasn't the Dean of Harvard that time, else you might have had a chance... Too Bad, there is only one Manmohan Singh!)

Then Why did you go about lying about being Masters in Economics from Harvard .. before finally taking it off your Resume upon questioning by Dr. SUBRAMANIYAM SWAMI (The Gentlemen who exposed the 2G Scam)

REPLY : Mr. Swamy and his consipiracy theories are world famous!

Dr. Subramanium Swamy, the outright liar claims that Rahul Gandhi was at Harvard. Which is a completely frivolous lie. On the other hand a story was planted in he media which questioned Rahul Gandhi's M Phil education in Cambridge.(instead of Harvard, as claimed by liar Swamy!)

Cambridge officially confirms that he was  very well a student of Trinity College:
"His son,Rahul Gandhi, studied at Trinity in the 1990s, gaining an MPhil in Development Economics."

EVIDENCE: Official Cambridge Literature decided to check this and so got in touch by e-mail with the Old Records Office at Trinity College.The request was apparently forwarded to the press and publications office of Cambridge University, from where received an official reply today.It said: 'Rahul Gandhi was a student at the University of Cambridge as a member of Trinity College from 1994 to 1995, and was awarded an MPhil in Development Economics.'


Official Press Briefing of the Congress Party
EVIDENCE: Press Release

Nitin Gupta writes :Sonia G gave a sworn affidavit as a Candidate that She Studied English at University of Cambridge

According to Cambridge University, there is no such Student EVER! Upon a Case by Dr. Subramaniyam Swami filed against her, She subsequently Dropped the CAMBRIDGE CREDENTIAL from her Affidavit.

Sonia Gandhi didn't even pass High School. She is just 5th class Pass!In this sense, She shares a common Educational Background with her 2G Partner

REPLY: Dr. Subramanium Swamy's utter lie was dismissed by the Supreme Court  and High Courts again and again. Still Nitin Gupta quotes this. Why?

SC dismisses petition on Sonia's 'false' affidavit
EVIDENCE: Times Of India

Nothing wrong with Sonia's poll affidavit: SC

Apex court rejects Swamy's petition against Sonia Gandhi
EVIDENCE: The Hindu Reports

CONCLUSION:  The Latter part of Nitin Gupta's letter is filled with Ad Homeins and Personal Attacks to Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, which is beyond any sane person's dignity to respond.

I have always maintained that INDIA COMES FIRST. I as Indian, was surprised to see that Educated Indians like me, were believing all this without VERIFYING the FACTS !


I know that there are flaws in the system and Reforms are needed in Virtually Every Sector.

The Present Fight Against  Corruption is also a Catalyst for reforms. We should Have Faith in the System, However skewed it is. We should enter the system and support it so that we can MAKE A CHANGE.

Mahatma Gandhi said Be the change you want to see in the world."
So We should work towards that and See to it that the SYSTEM CHANGES from within.

It is very easy to blame and single out a SINGLE POLITICIAN, But Very Difficult to Become One
