DOUBLE TRACK RAILWAY PROJECT â€“ WERE THERE CORRUPT INSIDE MEN? (Part 3)
CON MAN BALADEVAN THEAIVENDIRAM ON THE RUN BUT FOR HOW LONG?
Gosh! And Holy Heavens!
What shocked this writer is his claim that he is a relative of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Honâ€™ble CM Dr Kalaignar M. Karunanidhi through marriage ties (claims the CMâ€™s daughter Kanimozhi (below) is married to his nephew G. Aravindan a Singaporean) and through these claims is alleged to have been brokering various project contracts in Tamil Nadu!
I have personally alerted the Chief Secretary of the Tamil Nadu government!
We are also initiating alerts to the Indian High Commission in Malaysia on the same!
He has also sought the assistance of a third party â€˜close to this writerâ€™ to call for a truce and â€˜table talk!â€™ I have rejected both â€“ he has caused irreparable damage and financial loss to countless persons, damaged the spotless reputation of innocents over the years and must be made to account for this!
New Delhi and Chennai has been alerted and I am now seeking an appointment with no nonsense and pro-active Indiaâ€™s Minister of Railway, HE Mamata Banerjee (above left) to share with her and hand over all relevant documents so that an internal probe could be conducted in Delhi – India, – Dr Jacob George
CON MAN ON THE RUN BALADEVAN THEAIVENDIRAM!
He used to walk the â€˜length and breathâ€™ of the nation meeting individuals, brokers and corporate executives, construction company owners with a laptop in hand!
In the laptop, he carried price sensitive drawings, figures, specifications and prices for the Seremban to Gemas stretch of the Double Track Railway Project given to India (IRCON)!
In the laptop presentation â€“ there was also the Letter of Award of the Malaysian Government to the Government of India for the Seremban to Gemas stretch. Â
Unemployed con-man Baladevan Theaivendiram was an experienced hand at these schemes but certainly he had help from the inside either from India or the IRCON office in Kuala Lumpur!
How else could he get his hands on price sensitive information which at one stage he wanted to sell at RM5 Million saying that that was the fees of the â€˜inside men and to the Ministerâ€ but thank GOD â€“ he had no takers!
Partly â€“ after the last scheme in early 2000 he pulled off which ran into hundreds of thousands of ringgit (a conservative estimate) claiming to be Ministry of Railways Indiaâ€™s â€˜consultant in the â€˜organizing,co-ordinating and securing participation in the project called Ipoh-Padang Besar Double Tracking Railway Projectâ€™ Awarded to IRCON INTERNATIONAL LIMITEDâ€™ (I am here using the phrase he used in the â€“Bilateral Confidentiality And Non Disclosure Agreement between his RM2/- company ZEN BRIDGE SDN BHD and his victims!) no one believed him this time around as word about him was well circulated in the industry!
He proudly claimed the deal was not given to India despite a LOI so thatâ€™s why he and his people in Delhi could not deliver to those who paid him lots of money but with the Seremban to Gemas and perhaps also the speculated- (?) Tampin to Malacca he would!
Interesting spin! Â Â
Those who were there this time were there only to assist to try to get back their monies or that of the many innocents but when he appeared on the scene again claiming that his confidant a high profile Ministry of Railways and former IRCON Staff who had served in Malaysia had given him the new data which he proudly showed all and sundry in his marketing endeavors and that he was the Uncle to G. Aravindan a Singaporean whom Baladevan claimed was married to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Honâ€™ble CM Dr Kalaignar M. Karunanidhi daughter Kanimozhi and that he was also brokering many projects from Telecommunications, civil works and Tamil Nadu government contracts â€“ this all added to the ‘persona’ he was trying to create and people gave him the benefit!
After all â€“ it is all impressions is it not â€“ so in India he always stayed in the Suites of 5 Star Hotels and he stayed at the Suite at TAJ COROMANDEL in Chennai as well and well served by their former Assistant Front Manager Ashish Loach and where many Tamil Nadu senior civil servants, politicians and brokers and others wanting opportunities gathered at the suite Baladevan stayed paid by the many victims of the scandalous schemes he initiated but this the Indians in Delhi and Chenna did not perhaps know!
Even – perhaps, that ‘Ministry of Railways contact’ who then was serving in Chennai and he had come to the suite as well to collect gifts!
Yes – I was there in that Suite as well and witnessed this as I led an investment delegation to Tamil Nadu for a contact development meeting during that week Baladevan was there!
But to those there – conman Baladevan was politically connected to the Tamil Nadu CM and they had several Ministers in the Federal Ministries and there were individuals in Delhi who he spoke of!
They did not know he was an unemployed conman who lived his life conning others!
The Government of India and their CBI officers can check con-man Baladevan Theaivendiram was a Starwood Preferred Guest under the name of DEVAN BALA â€“ A50854400646!
Baladevan Theaivendiram alleged that under the advice of the â€˜high profile inside man whose name I knowâ€™ he bought very expensive branded watches, Pens, Perfumes, Jewelery, medication Â which all ran into a big fat expense and to date, he has (a conservative estimate used up RM1.7 Million of other peopleâ€™s monies and destroyed careers and reputations).
He alleges he gave former Railway Minister Lalu Prasad â€“a Rolex watch, several others equally expensive watches in Delhi which includes the Railway Board – expensive gifts, watches which include senior politicians in the Tamil Nadu government!
I have in my care and control â€“ alleged Railway board letters, a pen drive containing the price sensitive specifications and certainly the names of those who have been in sine-biotic relationship with this trickster and conman who is now bringing great shame to many innocents in Delhi and Tamil Nadu!
I have done my part by refusing to meet this scumbag â€“ this filth who has hurt and destroyed careers and reputations!
I have done my duty in alerting Delhi and Tamil Nadu and I have also given my mobile number – +60(0) 123664444 and I am ready to fly to Delhi and Tamil Nadu to meet any quarter to expose this scandal!
I have also asked for an appointment with Railway Minister HE Mamata Banerjee whom I have great respect for and it is her call!
I want to thank those from Delhi and Chennai and particularly from the media who have asked me to highlight the identities of those involved!
Though tempted, I will not highlight the identities of those Baladevan Theaivendiram has â€˜fingeredâ€™ â€“ they deserve the right to be heard and the truth to be revealed!
Their careers and future should not be destroyed and jeopardized by this scumbag who goes by the name ofÂ Baladevan Theaivendiram unless an Indian comprehensive probe finds them quilty!
Next – the ‘Indian Connection! in this scandal!
