Shanti Bhushan tapes are doctored


Headlines Today and the Times of India said their 'experts' said the CDs were not sliced and it was a continuous conversation. No names of the experts or organizations that tested the tapes were mentioned, of course. Well, bad luck to them, the Bhushans had the tapes tested by two labs, one a famous one from the USA, the other Truth Lab. Both the labs said there is ample evidence of slicing and what's more, a part of the conversation that was supposedly one between S Bhushan, Amar Singh and Mulayam S Yadav is IDENTICAL to a part of another conversation between Amar Singh and Mulayam S Yadav whose tapes were released in 2006 and an investigation is pending on it.
Well, that should be conclusive evidence of doctoring for anyone with an ounce of brain, but our media aren't convinced yet. Because - many of these media houses including the Times of India, Headlines Today and Indian Express have played an active part in this whole vilification conspiracy by claiming the tapes authentic and delaying the investigation into these tapes. Remember the media silence on Radia tapes? Compare that to the enthusiasm of this time. The judge that the tapes claim that the Bhushans were supposed to 'manage' with 4 cr is presiding over the 2G scam and Amar Singh case - both cases are being fought by Prashant Bhushan. So by claiming that a nexus exists between Bhushan and the judge the government actually seeks to remove the judge and Bhushan from the cases, at the same time making sure that the father-son duo stay away from Lokpal committee so that the empty places can be filled by people of their choice - in other words infiltrate the civil society membership of the Lokpal committee. Also, interestingly, the part where Amar Singh says that Shanti Bhushan is sitting with him does not seem to be doctored. Yet Shanti Bhushan says that he never met Singh. So that clearly suggests that Amar Singh was involved in the making of the fake tapes.

The sharp attacks on Anna, Kejariwal and the Bhushans shows how much the corrupt want to disrupt the proceedings. We can expect further attacks to discredit OUR representatives. All Indians should rise as one and support this movement and wipe out corruption from OUR country. Let us fight to the finish.

All the citizens who have joined in this crusade now should rise up again to prevent the politicians from defaming the people behind the movement. I heard Amar Singh's address to the media and it was quite sickening. The corupt will do everything in their power to obstruct this movement. Only us citizens can prevent this.

I have of couple points. Let me clear that I am die heart supporter of Anna's ji movement.

(i) I have great regards for Sh Shanti Bhushan and Sh Prashant Bhusan. But personally, I feel only one member either father or son, should be in drafting committee.
(ii) IAC should stop threatening Govt. It seems they are blackmailing now. You may loose people support by blackmailing. One should not be adamant with dead line. I know deadline is important. But drafting fool proof bill is more important. India is such a vast countries with so many diversities, and political parties. If country can live without Lok Pal bill for 63 years, it can live couple of more months. Now IAC is behaving like in Country there is no system to check corruption. System is in place only enforcement is poor.
(iii) So my humble request is that try to have sound Lok pal bill so that there is no loop hole and it should be fool proof. May be it will take couple of more months.

Regards,
Anil.

i) Since both the Bhushans helped with the draft of the bill, it's important that all the drafters be in the committee. However, Prashant Bhushan offered to stay away from the committee but the civil society wanted him to stay.
ii) I think there is good reason for setting up a deadline. We have seen what happened to the old Lokpal bills when there was no deadline. If we be lax about the bill, it won't get passed and even if it does, it wouldn't be of any use after all the modification.
"System is in place only enforcement is poor." --- Well, without the enforcement, what's the point of having a system in place?
"If country can live without Lok Pal bill for 63 years, it can live couple of more months."
Contrary to what the middle class believes, the biggest brunt of corruption is borne by the poor. Today the economic gap is wider than ever. About 80% of the country live on less than 20 rupees a day. The poor do not have money to send their children to schools and cannot afford expensive treatment of disease, so loss in national exchequer means less money to education and health sectors. We all know how pathetic the condition in govt hospitals are. People die without treatment, on the floors, stairs and hospital yard. No new government or schools hospitals have been built in my area as long as I can remember. Using SEZ government evicts people from their land and take away their livelihood without adequate compensation while corporates take control of our water, market and environment. Inhumanity reaches a new low when government, who's supposed to be protecting people, demolishes slums because poverty is an eyesore and bad for India's image - as a consequence people become homeless and in winter die on the streets. With an overwhelming majority of the population in destitution, we cannot delay the enforcement of the Jan Lokpal.
iii) Jan Lokpal bill is pretty sound in its present form and the government should be pretty familiar with the bill given these people have been sending letters and contacting members of the government for about a year.
