Satyam, Naidu nexus



No other software company was patronized by Chandrababu like he had patronized Satyam Computers. Obviously, no other leader had utilized any company like the way he had used Satyam Computers. No one could have enacted with the plurality Naidu had exhibited when the Software giant was caught in the quagmire of white collar offence.

In fact, the roots of Satyam scam lie in TDP regime. The seeds of the scam were sworn during N Chandrababu Nidu term as Chief Minister. The irregularities in Satyam accounting procedures came to light during the NDA regime itself. Ramdas Athawale who was them with RPI, raised the issue in Lok Sabha in March 2003. He had also written letters to the then Prime Minister AB Vajpayee and Finance Minister Jashwant Singh.

Athawale went on record stating that the inaction against Satyam Computers was at the behest of Chandrababu Naidu.

Had an inquiry been ordered then, Satyam would not have been slipped so deep into the scam. Naidu has shielded Satyam, as he benefitted from the company is an open secret.

Quid pro quo

This is the actual quid pro quo.

In 2002, Chandrababu Naidu government gave away 19.2 acres of prime land at Madhapur in city and 6.55 acre land in Visakhapatnam to Satyam Computers. In return, there were allegations that the software company had taken care of Naidu’s son Lokesh education in the US. The IT wing of TDP office and Naidu’s house was also being looked after Satyam Computers.  A team of 16 programmers and two team leaders were operating from the neighbouring house of Naidu.

The software being used by TDP was developed by Satyam Computers.

Satyam has also taken care of the printing of ID cards of TDP workers. Each ID card costs Rs 50 and the total amount spent on the ID cards works out to Rs 100 crores.

This apart, Satyam computers had donated Rs 1 crore to NTR Memorial Trust.

These are but some facts to establish the rapport between the Party and the Company


Any Doubts


v  IT Deputy Director, N Padma was transferred for trying to undertake a detailed investigation. What is not at the behest of N Chandababu Naidu?

v  When Bill Clinton visited Hyderabad, Naidu has seen to it that Ramliinga Raju of Satyam Computers shared the dais with the American President, though there were traditional industrialists like Ratan Tata. And what does this bond show?

v   Babu’s son Lokesh is not a bright student. Yet how could he study at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and Stanford Universities?

v  Enforcement Directorate (ED) had earlier enquired about the source of income for Naidu’s son’s education. The issue was hushed up with the manipulative tactics, for which Naidu is known for.

The Master Manipulator


By Benami Buster

After he smuggled himself to power, in the most abhorrent ways seldom paralleled in Indian polity, by dethroning the leader of the masses, Sri NTR, by ways of political deceit and betrayal, which Chandrababu had come to personify over the years, he set upon the task of governance of the State.

As recent history would tell us, we would have leaders, who in the rumble and tumble of real-politik, take sides, switch sides, take partisan stance, but when given the task of governance, adopt a liberal, democratic, all-inclusive approach to governance. We will not be cruel to Chandrababu Naidu by comparing him to legendary political leaders of yore, the Country had seen, but, naidu, does not even satisfy the minimal attributes of a leader, in contemporary times, who is acceptable to all sections of society, by his own frailties, and also on account of the issues he dealt with, in the manner he dealt with.

Any leader in governance would like to, at least be seen as making an effort, to usher in a transparent, honest, and a fair process of governance. Naidu is the only leader in contemporary politics who made manipulation, jugglery, spin-doctoring, media propaganda as effective instruments of governance. Let us take instance by instance :

a) Late NTR had imposed “prohibition” (no place for sale, consumption and trade in liquor) in the State of A.P. In fact the campaign for “prohibition” in the State was people-driven during the reign of K. Vijayabhaskara Reddy’s tenure as Chief Minister between 1992-1994, which was latched on to by Ramoji Rao’s eenadu.

After Naidu captured power, within a few months, he could understand the absence of revenue generation on account of prohibition and in a series of smart moves, EENADU started campaigning as to how “prohibition” is not in the interests of the State at all, as to how revenues started dwindling. One of the most popular decisions of any Government, – “prohibition” – imposed by NTR was lifted by Naidu. There were rumors and stories galore as to why and how the said decision was taken as a measure to garner pelf and assets for himself, and as is the trend, there was no investigation, no enquiry and a self-certification for himself was granted by the ever obliging EENADU.

b) He later on identified the areas which spelt doom for NTR during NTRs earlier reign between 1983 to 1989. He realized that the institutions of check and balance, had come very hard on NTR causing him untold embarrassment. Therefore, he went about the task of either subjugating them, and if not possible, subverted the parallel institutions of governance, such as Legislature, Judiciary etc. He would put his moles in every institution, and as James Manor#, the Englishman had recorded, even into the institution of Judiciary, to make things easy for him. The two moles he had inducted into the State higher judiciary, as noted by James Manor, came up for discussion during the course of recent hearing in the case of Smt. Y.S. Vijaya in the High Court against the misdeeds of Chandrababu Naidu during his reign as Chief Minister of the State.

Even during his latest lecture on THE BEST AND THE WORST OF INDIAN STATE he said that
Another worst feature of the Indian state is one-man dominance where certain chief ministers radically dominate their political sphere with the help of industrialists, “where one-person government is so strong that MLAs cannot represent and respond to their constituencies.” This is a negative trend. Examples he cited were Chandrababu Naidu, Naveen Patnaik, Narendra Modi, Karunanidi and Jayalalita“.*

The judiciary has never been the same ever since Chandrababu Naidu smuggled himself to power and as any stakeholder in the judicial institution of governance would lament, the master craftsmen brought on all his skills by employing lawyers, who are “NOT BEFORE” certain Hon’ble Judges, with an aim to marshall his case to a designated destination. And as he celebrated the dismissal of the W.P. filed by Smt. Y.S. Vijaya, by distributing sweets in the precincts, of the Legislative Assembly, he would be very proud of the actions he had taken, in regard to subverting every institution since 1995, which had kept him smiling. He still, unbelievably, seems to believe, that he is destined to have the last laugh.

Many men-made rulers, have come and gone, humbled by the aphorism that the “law has an uncanny way of catching up”. One may be on the run….. run……. Run……and then will find nowhere to go. It is a case of “when” and not “whether” with the law while Chandrababu naidu would be saying “whither with the law”.

To Conti…..
