‘I am told by reliable sources that this matter had brought some ‘shocks and embarrassment’ in both Delhi and Chennai and they want this matter to be investigated thoroughly!
More so, before the Indian Prime Minister visits Malaysia in the third quarter!
As usual – I will brief several senior Cabinet Members ‘close to me’ on this matter, which includes, the former Minister of Works, Malaysia!
I am certain several Police reports will be made and this matter be pursued in a manner unheard of both in Malaysia and India!’ – Dr Jacob George Â Â
DOUBLE TRACK RAILWAY SCANDAL – SEREMBAN TO GEMASÂ CONTINUED:
We will soon upload the photograph of the notorious Baladevan Theaivendiram so that members of the public can provide feed backs on his movements in the country in lieu of the serious allegations against him!
Several Police reports will also be made this week so that there can be an official probe into this scandal which started with Zen Bridge Sdn Bhd after there was a LOI between the Government of Malaysia and India over the Double Track Railway Projects Butterworth to Padang Besar.
The second stage started after the Malaysian government awarded the Seremban to Gemas to India and Baladevan Theaivendiram went to town with price sensitive project information and data in his laptop which included a copy of the Letter of Award given to India!
He claimed he was a â€˜nominated consultantâ€™ of India having links to former Railways Minister, Lalu Prasad, several senior members of the Railway Board and senior official of the Ministry of Railways India and at least one individual at the IRCON International Office at KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur!
He alleged that the very expensive branded watches, perfumes, pens (skeleton), medication and jewelery he bought from â€˜other peopleâ€™sÂ money were given to prominent politicians and civil servants in Delhi and Chennai were â€˜part paymentsâ€™ to facilitate the awards to Malaysian companies.
According to reliable sources, he showed them several of these gifts prior to his trips to India!
He had also given them several names of those who he claimed were assisting him. I have in my possession that list.
He has also claimed 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 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!
With these claims Baladevan is alleged to have collected ‘hundreds of thousands’ as â€˜upfront moniesâ€™ to ‘facilitate the awarding of these projects to individuals or companies’ introduced by this scumbag!
We need to address this issue and bring it to a closure before the forthcoming visit to Malaysia in the third quarter by India’s well respected and visionary Prime Minister, HE Dr Manmohan SinghÂ and one, I have a lot of respect for personally!
