Smt. Sonia Gandhi, Chairperson, United Progressive Alliance
Respected Madam Namsakar Vande Matram
It is heartening to learn from news media that you had a discussion with the Defence Minister on various defence scams issues. Your concern towards national security and the encouragement to RTI activities for addressing various corrupt practices in defence have renewed the fast pace initiated by Smt. Indira Gandhi on specific issues of national securities.
When the seventh fleet approached in Indian Ocean in 1971, she did not waste a second and rushed to Russia where she signed a defence agreement to benefit Indo-Russia treaty and as a result the Russian submarine surrounded the seventh fleet and when they had no choice left, they asked for a safe passage back to US.
The country today needs the same spirit from you. RTI activists are collecting whole heartedly all the inputs/information from various government agencies and when approaches to top heads of organizations like scientific adviser to Raksha Mantri in respect of corruption case, in spite of taking action to protect the culprits they have taken the shelter of schedule-II of RTI Act 2005.
The case which I am referring to has documentary evidences from CBI/IB/Customs etc. and unfortunately this case I have submitted to PMO, MOD,CVC etc. So far the culprits have been allowed to go scot free.
However, the Times of India dated 28th October 2010 on its first page reported “TOI Reports Triggers Action Across Union & State Government, Armed Forces, Defence Ministry may Take Over Scam Hit Mumbai High Rise”
The base of TOI news is the RTI activist Yogacharya Anandji, who was whistle blower in the Adarash Cooperative Housing Society scam.
Under the RTI, I have collected all the relevant documents and evidence which says that openly, blindly the Governments Rules have been manipulated for their personal gain by a set of people of DRDO and few directors of different establishments and protected / overlooked by SA to RM during 1996-2004.
If action is not taken in spite of all the evidences then many other Directors and top officials of DRDO will follow their predecessor and maintain the corrupt practices for their personal gains.
Your personal intervention is requested to stop these corrupt practices of top DRDO officials for the sake of national security.
