The best is yet to come

March 08 2011

It’s not just Niira Radia, the income tax department has taped the conversations of several big industrialists. And these have been leaked through an official in the department. Apart from Niira, conversations of Anil Ambani, Essar’s Ruia, and Videocon’s Dhoot brothers have also been recorded and hold a lot of information. The CBI had given it to the home ministry in writing that straight cases can be registered against a few based on the evidence and so permission should be given to arrest them. Chidambaram and Anil Ambani get along really well and so the home ministry asked the law ministry for advice, in the hope that the matter will be buried. Reliable sources reveal that the UPA government has directed the CBI that it should submit all the evidence to the Supreme Court and file a chargesheet there itself. The court can then summon anyone, and it should decide who is guilty and who isn’t. That means that the home ministry still hasn’t given the permission to the CBI to arrest anyone. But if the matter does manage to reach the Apex court, a lot of industrial houses may find no place to hide.
