The Myth of an Incorruptible Mr Modi

Despite both circumstantial and directly incriminating evidence of corruption and cronyism, the myth of Incorruptible Mr Modi, of “Na Khaunga aur Na Khaane Doonga” fame, has been built on fake news and suppression of investigations.

  • Heavily saddened to go through the various scams cited above.Must be investigated thoroughly and vigorously, by investigative agencies and appropriate courts, lest these pose national security concerns….

    • Excellent. So, when Sonia led UPA got worried about rise of Modi led BJP by mid 2013, it “instructed” ED and IT to raid and “find” some “evidence” against two popular BJP CMs, Modi and Shivraj. Very interesting! And nothing against other corrupt politicians from BJP or other parties including Congress. Poor Mrs Dixit was made a scape goat because she was already out of power and favour of family.
      And then these papers become “evidence” for Modi haters to spread rumours. Excellent!

  • Very Good article, keep it up

  • GREAT ANALYSIS, EXPOSING POWERFUL CRONY CAPITALIST.

  • fake degree mentioned in elections’ affidavit proves all above allegations are 100% correct….

  • Wonder why these allegations against the then Gujarat CM were not investigated by UPA in all the years that it was in power at the Centre, with the caged parrot fluttering to its whims….

    • saafbaat editor

      Its possibly a mixture of jurisdiction issues plus some opposition parties were also themselves close to some of the cronies.

    • The old saying is
      “hamam main sab nange hain”

      Another saying is:
      “Congress seth, jinke ghar sheeshe ke hote hain, wo. Dusre ke gharon par Patthar nahin fenkte, bus Twitter fenkte hain”

      This govt. That govt. Money plays it’s role.

    • I got two options to choose from.. Believe the change what I feel and see…or read some useless post and waste my time. Unfortunately I made mistake and read the latter, now I am correcting that.

    • Congress treated BJP as a respectable opposition ….. NO BJP FREE India or something like tha !!!! There were allegations of corruption against their own ministers and functionaries who were made to resign and face legal action.MOREOVER they never HAD any vinditiveness against BJP to keep hunting them with vengeance !!!! THeir RULE was TRULY socialistic MORE SECULAR though NOT totally free from conceptual errors NOR they had any HIDDEN AGENDA of HINDUTVA !!!!They handed over the reins to BJP when INDIA was already on the threshold of becoming a noticeable WORLD POWER !!!! Unfortunately at this juncture instead of simply concentrating on an EFFECTIVE and EFFICIENT GOVERNANCE BJP is THRIVING ON SLOGANS , false assurances AND SELF- destructive LIES !!!! bUT i THINK PROPLE ARE SEEING THEIR VULNERABILITY AND THE WAY THEY HAVE EXPERIMENTED WITH THE ECONOMY AND unnecessarily involving in various religious issues , faith and unimportant and irrelevant debates just to corner popularity. Now this release has revealed that all is NOT that holy with either NDA ,BJP or the PM whose EGO and SELF- PROMOTION has dented their USP of NOT HAVING even a SINGLE allegation of CPRRUTION in their 3 year rule !!!! I and my family voted BJP in the last general Election , which ONCE HARPED on SWADESHI ,SWARAJ and SWAVALAMBAN !!!! Strictly persona; views !!!

  • Just as Indira Gandhi misused power to save her political career, Rajiv Gandhi misused power to hide the bofors corruption, Narendra Modi misused power to gain /retain political power. Use of black/corporate money is age old in politics all over the world. So called developed countries boasting to be great democracies are not exceptions to this fact. Corporates invest in politics for furthering their business. Despite of all the revelation, the world is almost clu less about the solution to this basic problem in the path of real democracy.

  • Wonderfully compiled, agree to most of it.

  • We knew Power corrupts and absolute Power corrupts absolutely! …and Feku is no exception. But for the first time I see a concerted effort to compile scattered stories in a neat narrative and with documentary support. This article should become the first chapter of any book written in future on exploits of Feku PM.

  • Great job. Continue exposing.

  • Frustrated editor. Could not find something concrete trying to pass off lies and speculations as truth! Have you ever put such scams in congress party! Everyone knows your funding patterns. Dare you to post this comment. U r a feku

    • saafbaat editor

      Published this “Ad-Hominem” comment just to illustrate the kind of things we have as “rebuttal” !

  • What is the proof of all allegation? At the end all sources are just some articles published in few newspapers which also dont have any proof either. May be they are using your page as sources. So it’s ” tu mera khuja me teri khujata hu” . Also inform UPA they need it badly. They are still struggling with Modi’s suit.

    • saafbaat editor

      By that measure, what is the proof of corruption against Sharad Pawar, Reddy Brothers, Vadra, or any Congress politician?

      As the author points out, there is more direct evidence, in the form of Sahara/Birla diaries, against Mr Modi taking money illegally, than is against several other politicians.

  • Gaurav Kulshrestha

    Kudos to you for compiling all the research exposing modi at one place.
    Salute you for keeping the sprit of journalism alive. Hope more and more indians read and share

  • M P Terence Samuel

    Wonderful, well-researched work based on documentary evidences, well-documented facts without bias and arbitrariness…
    Love to read more, exposing the ills of political class sponsored and surrounded by crony capitalists…
    Keep it up please…

    • Pramod Bhandari

      ” Documentary Evidence” ..? Where is it now or when UPA was at its peak ? Why dosent the Oppn have the courage to use ” Evidence” & move Motion of No Confidence in Parliament ever since 2914 till date ?

  • Modi government is turning out to be more corrupt than the previous governments. But ignorance and cover-up by Media has ensured that these scams dont reach the masses. TV channels and Anchors are acting as agents appointed to create a illusion that this government is clean and non-corrupt. Anti-corruption crusaders who were very active during UPA government tenure are suddenly silent and are mysteriously quiet on these scams by Modi government.

    • Absolutely right. Very well written. In very few words you’ve summed up the whole picture. 👍👏👏👏

  • There is no use of this kind of individual opinion and meek approach to fight the Gujarat goondas. A collective street politic is need to counter Modi and his beneficiaries. We should give back the bjp in its with the same coin “street politics”. Let us unit before it is too late.

  • Very bold article with lots of statistics. A thorough investigation of independent in nature can only bring out the truth. But will it ever happen is the question which is unanswered so far.

  • This is outsourced corruption by him. This is also ok. But it will become dangerous once he becomes politicaly weak he will not hesitate to use available resources like defence force to his advantage. I will not be surprised if some war occurs at that time.

  • Shailesh Girathe

    Good exposae of Modi and his cronies, Manmohan Singhs every word uttered in Parliamentary debate during demonitisation …. of organised loot and legalised plunder coming true to its discourse

  • Excellent expose! A lie repeatedly drummed with histrionics a la cinematic style becomes the truth. In India you don’t have to repeat lies 1,000 times. Say it a few times in theatrical manner and urban and rural masses lap it like suckers. This happens in India regularly because a majority of the population is either ignorant or lacks higher education to comprehend political, corporate and business world chicanery and the many devious schemes the crooked play. People should examine the ‘Gujarat Model’ lie inflicted with finesse on the state and rest of India to know what awaits the country under this repressive, divisive and communal regime run by ruthless bigots.

  • Indians are getting exactly what they deserve. Democracy is for fair minded people, which we are not. Corruption (not just monetary) is considered smartness in our society.

    • Pramod Bhandari

      Agree . Bottom line is – forget all the chest beating of 1947 ….have we as a people or the (13) Govts we Indians Elected in past (70) years done ANYTHING To deserve ” Democracy” in 2017 ???

  • You cannot do anything by writing all these articles. No one cares about it. UPA can’t manage itself and no one can challenge Modi.

  • omprakash singh

    this article is fake as whole India knows Madam Soniya and Laloo has made millions in decades .Theybhave used money against India whereas Modi is Patriot and National and has gained power to make India shine again . offcourse he has used Adani money to fight elections which is essential . Now Madam Soniya and other Antinationals have started using this propaganda news to malign a true leader who will take India to superpower . Pakistan or China can not think of attacking India now. this news is paid heavily and will be sued in court of law . I can assure you that . Videshi Chatukar has written this to put India again in dark ages wherein security of this nation becomes threat by ISI. Soniya is a European lady and can never think intrest of India.Laloo has looted Bihar for decades and let his Goonda Sahabuddin make people s life hell .

    • Pramod Bhandari

      Well said , Sir ..!!!! …. No words more true than this

    • saafbaat editor

      I will ignore the pointless personal name calling parts of your comments, published them just to illustrate the typical mindset of Modi bhakts.

      We have merely compiled a list of things already in public domain, along with the references.

      Has Mr Modi yet sued Jairam Ramesh, who wrote about the GSPC Scam of Rs 20,000 Crores? Has he sued the various news portals that published the Sahara/Birla diaries?

      NO.

      Think. Why not?

  • On the Sahara Diary , the case was already put up before Supreme Court and they took a decision not to proceed on this, so on what basis without any further evidence to back it you can rake it at your convenience. Accordingly, if you believe there is quid pro quo on Adani and GSPC case, why have Mr Bhushan not gone to SC for justice. It’s your good luck that noone has not filed a defamation case like Jaitley has done to Kejriwal for defaming others without any concrete evidence.

    • This case has already been covered in this article in detail.

      “Ask yourself, what if the same court had been “on guard” while ordering investigations against Union Minister A Raja? Would the 2G scam have ever been uncovered?”

      If Feku is so clean, why doesn’t he agree to a JPC probe on this?

      • Refer my comments below

        This case has already been covered in this article in detail. >>> This article does not cover Supreme Court order which has dismissed the case and provided multiple chances of Mr. Bhushan to provide the evidence but he failed to do so.

        “Ask yourself, what if the same court had been “on guard” while ordering investigations against Union Minister A Raja? Would the 2G scam have ever been uncovered?” >>> How is this statement relevant to charges made here? If you believe SC for 2G scam uncovering you should also have faith in the same SC judgement on Mr. Modi.

        If Feku is so clean, why doesn’t he agree to a JPC probe on this? >> J I am shocked to hear this, do you consider Supreme Court a lower place for justice than JPC. Why has Mr Bhushan then gone to SC, why has he not filed a PIL to have a JPC for this. Please get your facts right on this before you make any baseless comments

  • Excellent analysis

  • V good article.

    We tend to forget easily. Not just the scams but also note bandi but also how the CII initial resistance was broken.

    Keep the spirit of freedom and resistance to fekudom.

  • Great analysis, please make another study of the assets of all politicians at the beginning of their career and how much assets they possess at the peak of the career.Make comparison including Narendra Modi.That would be the real i education of personal incorruptibility.

    • I agree with this article, that was just the old model of corruption. Putin and modi are too smart. They do a nautanki of being humble, but make their crony freinds very rich.. and they have full freedom to use these funds.

      Adanibhai ka plane , apana hi plane hai Mitron..

    • Let’s see if they are capable of doing that

  • Pramod Bhandari

    If the References used in this , are so irrefutable, authentic , strong & therefore -dependable … then y did yesterday’s sole Central Power twiddle their thumbs for past (3) years ? This Is nothing but a collection of past Newsreports , compiled into Feku prose, pushed into uncensored ” Free for all” IT Space by out of job scriptwriters funded by scraggly bunch of frustrated disgruntled Politicians
    Sonia, Patel, Laloo, Akhilesh, Mamata, have a Mahagatbandah IT Cell …!!

    • Answered above by someone already, jurisdiction + collusion issues.

      BTW, the scams that were uncovered, were uncovered because of Media outcry, NGO activists + SC not bending to political power.. it was NOT because of some XYZ party.

  • Pingback: The Myth of an Incorruptible Mr Narendra Modi | Kractivism

  • News paper references as concrete evidence!!! Lol…
    Better understand what constitutes an evidence first

    • saafbaat editor

      As pointed out in the article itself, this is a lot more than what has ever been produced against Laloo Yadav in fodder scam case, and is lot more than was available against Mr A Raja when the investigation started.

  • Waiting for a Messiah

    Very good article sir! I am still waiting for the messiah. The true messiah who can save the Indians from these political vultures and their paid bhakts.

  • Hmmm…..like it’s said… no politician is clean…. it’s not bout Congress or BJP. The social media working on Mr Modi’s capmpaign before the elections and now have done a wonderful job of portraying him as the only leader that can save India. The recent revelations of Modi’s speech seeking support of the Dera chief (Ram Rahim) for the Haryana elections proves that for power anyone can stoop to new lows.

  • Time to stop his scams by handing over to inspiring ever energetic Rahulji

  • Jis jis ko position mila yoto chore nikal rahe hai.
    Jisko nahi mila yoto jal jalke mar rahe hai.
    Aur aise harkate kar rahe hai.
    Positon pe rahane tak 90% log chore hote hai.

  • Excellent analysis. Is the editor faced any repercussions for publishing this article?

    • Thanks. Just the usual abuse from bhakts, and a couple of minor threats (so far).

      • Modi besides all those killings in Gujarat was given clean chit and he covered his tracks so well that no social media even brought such facts out . People have accepted him as new AVATAR even with hands full of blood of the innocent citizens.
        Will anyone in India including CBI and courts have the courage to fully investigate ?
        There was a tape a few years back where Amit Shah was giving an hourly report of a young woman’s daily routine and was told that she was a friends daughter and her father has requested so but that was not so and the whole thing was hushed up.
        So let us hope rest of the media brings such reports are openly played before either it is blocked or his bhakta calling it FAKE News.

        • Yes, if you check our articles, this site is precisely about exploring such stories in depth which have somehow escaped the attention of people, or where fake news/propaganda dominates.

          The intention behind this site was to equip our readers with sufficient “ammunition” to counter such propaganda.

  • Al news come up just a waste of time to know al dis der is no more freedom fighters to end al dis govt parties and begin new India with new independce from corruption

  • I have got a rebuttal question.
    Isn’t it fishy that Wikileaks took 3 years to promulgate formally that ‘America is scared of Modi…’ argument is fake and fabricated?
    I mean they could have clarified it much earlier. 3 years is a hell lot of time.
    It may be possible that Wikileaks was ‘told’ to carry out this declaration.

    • Disgruntled ek-Bhakt

      Ah, I keep accusing you of being a thief in papers in Namibia. You do not notice for 3 years, and only issue a clarification then. By your logic, it is your delayed clarification that we should actually look at with suspicion !??

      p.s. It wasn’t just Mr Modi, Fake news propaganda all over the world mis-used wikileaks for their own goals.

      Wikileaks would need to employ thousands of people to actively find and debunk all those misusing their name!

  • Quote: In 2005, Modi announced in his typical “Feku” style, and with a lot of fanfare how GSPC had found gas worth ₹ 220,000 Crores in Krishna Godavari Basin, and that the nation would no longer need to import any gas by 2007. 10 years on, and after wasting ₹ 20,000 Crores against expert advice, the company was driven to a bankruptcy by Modi’s whims. GSPC misused its funds and allegedly formed join ventures with dodgy front companies with no experience in offshore drilling. [2] After 20,000 crore loss to Gujarat state exchequer, PM Modi forced ONGC to take over GSPC gas fields in order to cover up his massive misadventure. [3] Unquote

    GSPC found gas in Krishna Godavari in 2005 and Modi asked GSPC to spend 20000 crores?? It it a joke? Why GSPC spends that much money in Andhra because Gujarat CM is interested?

    This article is a fake.

    • Be_A_Voter_Not_A_Bhakt

      The numbers in square brackets [2] & [3] are the references of the claim.

      You clearly have no clue about this story.

      Gas in offshore Gas fields is not a property of Andhra. GoI gives drilling licenses to any company that bids for it.

      Read about GSPC’s disastrous foray into Krishna Godavari Basin Gas exploration under Mr Modi’s push (bit like his Notebandi).

  • This is a loot. The people of India are being fooled. The Holy media is terrorized and the loot continues. Modi and his government has to be thrown out. Politically and may be…

  • I am not at all surprised by reading this article. It only proves that Feku Modi has better skill of managing things than dynast queen Sonia.

    We indians have to live with this reality as we have no better choice other than bloody revolution.

    Are we ready for that? All of us know the answer. So who bothers?

  • A real eye opener. Diligently researched and a courageous piece of journalism at that. Sincere compliments.

  • most of the political tycoons are Corrupt , they make relationship with muscle power people of the society , big corporate houses ,, to enjoy the long term power game in the states, or in centre government .Muscle Power , Money Power , and Political Power , together loot the nation without fear .

  • Gujarat is due for elections in Nov/Dec 2017. Modi has already made seven trips with each trips costing several crores of expenses. He is likely to go over once more before elections and for that again crores are being spent sprucing up and decorating the places he may visit. May be he is not himself corrupt but all these expenditures – well, you make money either by honest means or by dishonest means just to spend and enjoy the life.

  • Congratulations !!! And Thanks for this Very Very Good Article.

  • Shailesh Girathe

    Please send detailed news on such articles which are being suppressed by Modi Regime

  • Huge respect for your courage to speak against the most dictatorial government this country has ever seen.
