Letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh

This is the letter that Arvind Kejriwal has written to the Home Minister, Sh. Rajnath Singh asking him to direct the LG of Delhi to desolve the Delhi assembly and pave way for fresh elections. The hearing of the Supreme Court case is coming up on 4th July. AAP expects that BJP, if its indeed serious about conducting fresh elections in Delhi, should make their stand explicit there as well. 

This will put an end to all "horse-trading" attempts being made by different parties, to try and form a Govt. in Delhi, by hook or crook.  Read More

Letter to PM on gas pricing

According to reports coming out in newspapers, your government is preparing to shortly increase the prices of natural gas. We had apprehended earlier only that after the elections the prices of natural gas will be doubled. We sincerely request you not to hike gas prices which will only benefit Mr. Mukesh Ambani and the people will be further burdened by rising prices.

Through this letter I am bringing some facts to your notice, which state that actually the prices of natural gas in India need to be reduced rather than increasing them.

Today you purchase a unit of gas from Reliance for $ 4.205. The RIL spends less than a dollar on production of one unit of gas. That means the RIL is reaping a profit of more than 325 per cent. The facts below prove that the RIL actually spends less than a dollar on excavation of a unit of gas: Read More

Why Ambani was desperate to take control of Network 18

Throughout the run-up to the November-December state assembly elections and its aftermath, Ambani had been angered by the attacks made on him by Arvind Kejriwal, leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The party had captured the public imagination and gone on to form a short-lived government in Delhi.
Kejriwal had gone all guns blazing for Ambani—in press conferences, speeches, at rallies and pleas to the Anti-Corruption Branch. He had made several allegations. To begin with, he had named Ambani in accusations about crony capitalism; he then filed a first information report (FIR) against him, along with RIL and some central government ministers and officials over alleged irregularities in the pricing of natural gas from the Krishna-Godavari basin off India’s east coast.
 
All of Kejriwal’s allegations were being aired live on national television, fuelling further criticism on social media. RIL, a $66 billion energy firm, wanted to react but didn’t know how. Suing newspapers and television channels was one thing—suing Kejriwal quite another. Threatening him with a lawsuit didn’t work. One-off statements from the communications team summarily denying those allegations weren’t good enough either.

Government plans urea price hike to curb fertilizer subsidies

A proposed doubling of natural gas prices is now expected to force the government's hand. Gas accounts for four-fifths of the cost of making urea, a nitrogenous fertilizer that consumes more than half of India's $11 billion annual fertilizer subsidy bill.

"The gas price rise is making the urea price hike a compulsion. The government has no choice. We are expecting a decision before the budget or in the budget," said a senior official with a state-run fertilizer company.  Read More
