Sam Pitroda. Lives in the capitalist US, insults the Indian middle class and wants Indian middle class to foot the bill for socialist schemes.
Is a Telecom engineer, suddenly an expert in economics, taxation and politics. #Thread
Sam Pitroda brought the 1960s technology to India in 1980s.
Gandhis hog the credit for bringing Sam and STD/PCO technology to India.
Nobody asks them, what took them so long? Why two decades behind??
From Sam Pitroda, Dr H l Trivedi to Raghuram Rajan....it’s Congress’ rich tradition to invite overseas Indians to run things in India. It gives them fake elite labels and Congress ensures that domestic talent is shown as second grade always anyway.
Sam Pitroda was recently seen discussing national security and defense after #Balakot strikes. Today he is into taxation and economics.
Seems Sam is competing Raghuram Rajan for Manmohan Singh post.
Rajiv Gandhi made Sam Pitroda a Minister of State despite of the fact that he was a US citizen at the time. Sam had to change his nationality for technical reasons, but he wasn’t too happy about it.
As a matter of fact, Sam Pitroda isn’t too happy living in India still, despite having technically changed his allegiance on paper to avail a power post under Rajiv Gandhi’s patronage.
Even he doesn’t actually believe in a @RahulGandhi future, this tells me.
While Sam Pitroda worked for Rajiv Gandhi, it was very much a symbiotic relationship.
Sam’s family overseas allegedly benefitted from telecom contracts while Sam worked in the Indian government.
That doesn’t sound anything like anyone in @INCIndia would ever do, does it??
The above references about Sam Pitroda’s ‘painful’ decision to come to India, his admission that he doesn’t actually want to be in India and allegations about family corruption abusing position of power come from this link: chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-20…
Symbiosis means both parties benefit, right? Rajiv Gandhi got more than credit for bringing telecom technology to India (even if only 20 years too late!)
Rajiv Gandhi achieved a strong spying tool for surveillance upon Indian citizen from Sam Pitroda.
Alarmed yet??
This 2014 March report from ‘Reporters Without Border’ report claims C-Dot of Sam Pitroda worked as government’s surveillance agency, like those of China, Russia, North Korea, Pakistan..... rsf.org/en/news/enemie…
March 2014 India Today report called C-Dot that Sam Pitroda started for Rajiv Gandhi as one of the world’s three worst surveillance systems used by government on their own public.

Sam Pitroda was an important facilitator for the Sai Infosystems scam worth over 1000 Crore Rs. Read the report here: livemint.com/Companies/ZpDa…
Now comes the more sinister part: Sam Pitroda abusing the access the Gandhis created for him to most questionable extents.
Let’s go:
In 2010, MMS Govt created the entirely bullshit ‘National Innovation Council’. They have it a tenure of 10 years from 2010 to 2020.
They made Sam Pitroda the chairman of National Innovation council for 10 years (2010-2020). As of Congress and MMS hopes they’d be in power till 2020!
This was just another front to give dubious access to power to the cronies. Interesting part starts now:
According to the website of the ‘national innovation council’, they have not done any event worth note after March 2014.
Wait for it..... innovationcouncilarchive.nic.in/index.php?opti…
The National Innovation Council that was supposed to lead scientific/ technological advising for innovation to the government, was actually doing JNU style chat ups with Nandita Das. innovationcouncilarchive.nic.in/index.php?opti…
Then I came across this link, and on reading this you will either squirm or jump with shock. In 2016, @sampitroda was attending some dinner with Clintons and U S State Department pretending to be representative of policy commission of India!! 🤯😱2016!! washingtonpost.com/politics/insid…
@sampitroda No wonder @narendramodi ordered the National Innovation Council to be closed down. Did it take a Year (from September 2017 when Sam attended the US State Dept dinner posing as India's policy council representative to October 2018) for them to find out? thehindubusinessline.com/news/disappoin…
@sampitroda @narendramodi Before the 2014 elections in January 2014 (probably foreseeing the impending doom), Sam Pitroda's National Innovation Council had launched venture funds worth 5000 Crore Rupees.
What happened to this when they were shut down in 2018? livemint.com/Politics/5P09T…
@sampitroda @narendramodi So friends, Here I present you, Sam Pitroda. #End
