Sonia's Gift to India


Ottavio Quattrocchi is once again in headlines.Thanks to Central Bureau of Investigation for giving him a clean chit.Now that the Sonia & Co would be relieved on hearing this.

Here are the series of events related with Quattrocchi and Bofors scam:

1). 1993 – Swiss bank officially named Quattrocchi as the account holder for the firm AE services.The Central Bureau of Investigation attempted to question him because of this in Bofors case.In the same year he has left Delhi for Malaysia.Infact he was let off as per the deal between Sonia and then Prime minister Narasimharao.

2). 1999 – BJP led NDA government filed chargesheet against Quattrocchi.

3). 2003 – Two accounts in London branch of swiss bank held by Quattrocchi and his wife Maria were found by Interpol and per CBI request they were frozen.

4). Dec 2005 – Law minister Hansraj Bharadwaj deputed B.Dutta to London to release these accounts without consulting CBI on this matter.

5). Jan 2006 – A PIL was filed in Supreme court and the orders were given to CBI to ensure that the money was not withdrawn from these accounts until clarification for the goverment’s decision was obtained.However the entire 4 Million USD was withdrawn from these accounts by that time.

6). Feb 2007 – Quattrocchi was detained in Argentina following Interpol’s red corner notice.

7). June 2007 – The request for extradition of Quattrocchi was rejected by Argentianian court and at last CBI paid the legal fees of Quattrocchi in this case.

8). April 2009 – Interpol has removed the red-corner notice issued against Quattrocchi following a request from CBI.

Some questions need to be answered here –

Why was the decision taken to defreeze the two accounts held in London branch of Swiss bank by Sonia led goverment ?

Why was there a delay in CBI’s announcment that Quattrocchi was detained in Argentina?

Why did Massimo Quattrocchi, son of Quattrocchi,come to India at the time of his father’s detention in Argentina and stayed here for more than 6 months?

Why did Massimo attend the party hosted by BJD  MP where Priyanka Vadra was also present?

Why did Digvijay Singh of Congress repeatedly deny the alleged meeting between Priyanka Vadra and Massimo without substantiating his argument?

No apologies for Bofors; it was a lie says Rahul Gandhi aka Liar

After reading this interesting piece of information on Rahul aka Diaper Gandhi’s answer to one of the questions thrown at him by a journalist, I could not contain my laughter for long time.Thank you so much Diaper Gandhi for your expresssive face and clenching teeth.Rahul aka Diaper Gandhi loses his cool!!

It is also to be noted whenever he smiles,even her Spanish girl friend Juvenita feels uneasiness and sometimes frowns.See the photo.So Rahul..Oh…sorry..Diaper Gandhi..please frown a lot and make funny faces like these so that people of India can laugh at your clumsiness and general knowledge.

Excerpts from the post starts here with my emphasis.

Congress general secretary (??)Rahul  aka Diaper Gandhi Saturday described the Bofors kickback allegations against his family as lies indulged in by non-Congress governments and asserted he saw no reason to apologise on the issue.Can Diaper Gandhi care to read this?

Even though you repeatedly saying you and your mother Antonia  have not not done anything, the courts have given vedict on this issue and your uncle Quattrocchi(your mother’s close associate) had received money from Bofors kickback and they have even given the bank names and account numbers.Diaper Gandhi – Grow up!!

The normally unflappable Gandhi lost his cool momentarily when a woman journalist said he stood on a pile of rubbish as far as the allegations against his family on the Bofors gun controversy and the anti-Sikh riots were concerned.

Unflappable – Yes.He had been unflappable while partying and dating Juvenita.But there is not going to be fun anymore in politics.Congress chamchas,mother Antonia,Deedhi Bianca or girl friend Juvenita will not come to your rescue.You need to change your Diaper by yourself.

“I don’t appreciate terminology that you stand on a pile of rubbish. That’s not nice word usage,” he told the questioner who asked whether he will apologise for the Bofors kickbacks rows that rocked India in the late 1980s.Yes Mr.Rahul – The journalist should have said like this “You are standing on a pile of Diapers”.Then you would have said “That’s a nice word usage”.She is not correct in this case and has overestimated you.

“There’s absolutely nothing that I have to apologise on Bofors,” he said. “It’s a complete lie. And it’s a lie used by opposition governments for 20 years. So there is absolutely nothing I have to apologise for about that.”  See the deperation in your speech yourself.Yes, there is absolutely nothing you have to apologise.Only punishment will help you gain your senses.If that is not done, you may end up being questioned for Diaper kickback controversy in future.        

The Bofors controversy relating to kickbacks allegedly received by persons close to the Gandhi family for the defence purchase during the prime ministership of Rajiv Gandhi became a national issue and was one of the causes for the Congress losing power in 1989.          

The Bofors howitzer deal was a $1.4 billion contract signed between the Rajiv Gandhi government and A.B. Bofors of Sweden for supplying 410 field howitzers and accessories to the Indian Army. The deal was signed March 24, 1986.
