Thread on important revelations of @Mediapart
expose 3 on Rafale 36 deal.
1. Sushen Gupta accessed the details of the bench marking price of Rafale deal calculated by the INT and complete revised proposal submitted by the EADS consortium from MoD.…
2. one of the spread sheet (dated 20 January 2016) Enforcement Directorate recovered shows that Sushen Gupta suggested an overall deal value of 7.87 billion euros - the exact amount Dassault proposed and Indian govt accepted, overruling the benchmark price decided by experts.
3. Dev Mohan Gupta's sons Sushen and Sushant are on good terms with (then) BJP Chief Amit Shah, (then) Finance minister Arun Jaitley and (then) IAF Chief Arup Raha.
4. (This has nothing to do with Mediapart and ED papers)

When tried to interview regarding the entire Rafale issue and how the processes were violated, Air Marshal Arup Raha refused to comment and accused my senior colleague @paranjoygt a Pakistan agent and +
5. we are trying to sell the national interest to an enemy country.
Air Marshal Raghunath Nambiar, former Vice Chief of IAF told me and @paranjoygt on a recorded interview that there was no procedural violation in reducing the number and Air Marshal Arup Raha submitted a new +
6. proposal to the defence ministry and that was readily accepted because the the IAF couldn't afford 126 Rafale "at that price".
7. The @cobrapost expose in 2019 mentioned that the diaries/notes of Sushen Gupta in possession of ED mentioning a name "AVM Zappo Sinha (ACAS Plans)" along with many other names.
Interestingly, AVM Zappo Sinha was the head of the INT and he defended the 36 Rafle deal vigorously.
8. With all the evidences falling in place and suggest that Modi's 36 Rafale deal was the biggest ever scam in Indian defence deal history, why the PM who famously proclaimed "Na Kahunga, Na Khanedunga" is hesitant to order a detailed and independent investigation?

India’s future is not that bleak
For all those who are saying children should not be used for politics:
Haven’t seen such comments on videos when young kids are wearing khakhi knickers and marching with lathis or not when people are trained in lethal weapons in the name of RW politics
No such outrage heard on when the khakhi knickerdhaaris flouted every Indian and international law on child right to traffic 31 young tribal girls from Assam to Punjab and Gujarat to ‘Hinduise’ them.…

“The behaviour and conduct of members of the higher judiciary must reaffirm the people’s faith in the impartiality of the judiciary. Any act of a Judge of the SC or a HC, whether in official or personal capacity, which erodes the credibility of this perception has to be avoided.”
Quoted from “Restatement of Values of Judicial Life (1999) – CODE OF JUDICIAL ETHICS”
Clause 8 reads: “A judge shall not enter into public debate or express his views in public on political matters....”

Arun Mishra publicity praised PM Narendra Modi
Four senior most judges of the Indian Supreme Court held an press conference - a first in Indian Judicial history. One of the major contentions was that the then CJI was allocating politically sensitive cases involving BJP leaders only to benches led by Arun Mishra

Again, have no intention to hurt anybody’s religious sentiments.
Pls correct me with logical answers.

Religion says it is blasphemous to draw the pictures of God and prophets because it leads to idol and symbol worship.

Then why one symbol at one place is considered holy?
Pictures are symbols. So the constructions in marble and granite.

Why do believers circumnavigate a structure at one place if symbolisms are not permitted at all? Isn’t it symbolism?

If I’m wrong, Forgive me for my lack of knowledge
Thanks for correcting me with lot of replies.
If God is universal, why one place, one direction at one location?
Let us assume, the Almighty had delivered the holy words at that place. isn’t it symbolic affair to go there?

Law says any Habeas Corpus Petition to be decided within 14 days of filing. But, in J&K HC, 99% of the HBPs filed after August 5, 2019 are pending.

If Judiciary believe everything the executive do is perfect and can't be questioned or ignore or postpone the most important matters like HCPs and the matters related to the violation of Construction like the dilution of A370, people will lose their faith in the courts +
It is already happening and the judiciary should blame itself for this miserable situation.
The courts which forgets or compromise its own responsibilities don't hold the right to initiate contempt charges if the public turn against it. +
