For some time I was informed that Govindacharya had a some kind of a broadly liberal perspective.
This, despite a very strong socialist structure of his ideas.
I engaged through Surendra Bisht with his group and even sent him the SKC Agenda.
Absolutely no response from his end.
However, things came to a head when Govindacharya started a Goraksha Andolan-गोरक्षा आंदोलन Facebook page and Surendra invited me to the page. Surendra also sent me a couple of emails on this topic. I pointed out that this is TOTALLY INCONSISTENT with Hinduism. Beef eating was a part of Hindu diet for thousands of years. It is well documented in Arthashastra, apart from 100s of archaeological proofs. Even today Hindus eat buffalo (and drink its raw blood) in some parts of India/ Nepal – after thousands of years of Buddhist/Jain influence which led to the Hindus reducing their reliance on beef.
And from any sensible policy perspective this is a terrible idea. It is SURE way to make the cow a zoo animal, by making it uneconomic. Also, it forces older cows to eat on garbage (being disowned by poor farmers) causing the animal immense physical injury and pain. This is the WORST possible idea – to ban cow slaughter blindly.
Finally, after Surendra insisted that this is the kind of thing he wishes to pursue, I've disconnected COMPREHENSIVELY from this group. These are nothing but BJP in a different guise. And misguided, as well. Surendra is illiberal and anti-Indian. I will have no truck with these people.
These are NOT the leaders India needs to make it a great country. I request them to change false beliefs and antediluvian misconceptions.

I thought I'd pursue the AK lies a bit further.
In November 2013 he said that he would never align with Congress or BJP under any circumstances.
No alliance wid either BJP or congress under any circumstances.
— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) November 28, 2013
The reason? Because Congress and BJP are corrupt. Which is true – they are miserably corrupt. So far, so good.
Then, in July 2014 he launched a direct attack not only on BJP but on the Lt. Governor of Delhi:
He bandied about large figures:
After failing to buy any AAP MLA, BJP now trying to buy 6 cong MLAs. Price – Rs 20 crores each, 2 ministers and 4 chairmen.
— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) July 16, 2014
He went on TV and attacked everyone around him:
The BPP launched a counter-offensive:
But it is now clear that all the while AK WAS HIMSELF RUNNING AFTER CONGRESS.

The crony capitalist has finally emerged.
"now the suspense over the much hyped suit has ended as a diamond merchant Ramesh Virani has revealed that he gifted the suit to Modi. Virani gifted the suit to Modi during his son’s marriage. Virani shares cordial relationship with Modi and his family. Mr Virani also denied the estimated worth of the suit, saying that it is being over-hyped." [Source]
The businessman is refusing to divulge the cost. I stick to the 5-10 lakh estimate.
1) when was the marriage?
2) did Modi declare the gift immediately? He broke the code of conduct for ministers.
3) why did he wear the personal garment?
4) how many favours has he given to this merchant? Or his government given favours?
This is rock solid proof of corruption.
There MAY be 1 per cent chance that this is not proof of corruption. But the circumstantial evidence is now extremely conclusive.
IF MODI DECLARED THIS SUIT AFTER THE REPUBLIC DAY INCIDENT (I.E THE MARRIAGE WAS WELL BEFORE THE REPUBLIC DAY) THIS IS 100 PER CENT PROOF OF CORRUPTION.
6) How many gifts has Modi not declared?
7) How many favours to BJP that have not been declared?
The marriage date was 26 January, but that doesn't matter. The date the suit was gifted was 11-13 January 2015.
ALL other issues raised remain valid. I see no reason to change my mind that this is a clear case of corruption.
The suit got auctioned for Rs.4.31 crores. My comment on FB:
The corrupt shame of accepting this from a businessman, and actually wearing it, will not wash away. This auction is another way to come closer to Modi, and only crony capitalists will benefit from this. NO ONE GIVES THIS KIND OF MONEY FOR NOTHING.
Racket within a racket: Crooks and tax evaders seem to have paid for the Modi suit.

"By the way, I unearthed this scam. Neil gave me one company's name and asked if we can find details. Being a simpleton, he was clueless. Took me 2-3 hours to download and read documents from ROC website and infer that these are shell companies. Emailed it to Neil and he took it from there in respect of the other companies."
Well done, Rakesh.
This is an open and shut matter.
1) There were FOUR donations of Rs.50 lakhs made on 5 April 201 (click for larger image)
The spreadsheet with other details of the companies is attached here.
2) Ajay Upadhyaya is a director in three of these four companies.
3) The companies have fake addresses, etc.
The problem is that AAP never bothered to connect with the donors. This is not a small amount that can slip through the cracks. This is big bucks. NO party with any claims of integrity can tolerate such large amounts being donated anonymously.
AAP is implicated. And no explanation is forthcoming.
"All money that comes from cheques is not necessarily clean. We wanted to show the modus operandi of AAP that cash is given to such companies and in return cheques are issued. The business of these companies is to turn black into white," AVAM member Karan Singh said at a press conference. [Source]
In a press conference, AAP Volunteers Action Manch members said AAP's claim about the impossibility of conducting hawala transaction through cheque is untrue. They tried to prove this by producing two cheques of Rs 50 lakh each from the two firms which had donated the same sum to AAP — Goldmine Buildcon and Skyline Metal and Alloys. "We did this to prove that hawala transactions can be conducted through cheques," Amit Kumar of AVAM said. [Source]
Jaitley called the Rs 2 crore donation through cheques of Rs 50 lakh each by four companies to AAP a clear case of "round-tripping of black money". [Source]
"Now we know the truth. Look at their shamelessness," he said. "The party's defence that they did not ask for donations is untenable." Modi said the money was transferred to the AAP in the "dead of night". "Our country can forgive mistakes, but not fraudsters," the prime minister said. "Those who roamed around claiming to have Swiss account numbers in their pockets have no idea whose money is lying in their own accounts," Modi said. [Source]

First JP started sucking up to Modi – before the May 2014 elections. Now Surendra Srivastava is sucking up to Kiran Bedi (cf. his email sent out today).
The Freedom Team of India removed Lok Satta from the list of approved parties for its members.
I was hoping Surendra would change the situation, but he is a BJP toady as well.
We need a LIBERAL PARTY IN INDIA, not a bunch of toadies of a corrupt, communal, illiberal outfit.
I call upon Surendra and JP to dissolve Lok Satta which serves NO useful purpose now but to suck up to BJP.
BJP is mega CORRUPT and anyone who supports it directly is tainted. I'm sorry but Lok Satta is now in shambles and must wind up, or join BJP. I don't care, but don't mislead people like me – and god knows how many others.
BTW, despite 100s of reminders to JP and LSP etc. these people didn't think ONCE about endorsing the SKC agenda.
But they bend over backwards to endorse MEGA CORRUPT ILLIBERAL BJP!!!!!!
