Sanjay Bhandari.As theexpose by Firstpost’s Shalini Singh— and earlier ones in the same vein — show Vadra is not entirely an angelic businessman Congress President Sonia Gandhi with daughter Priyanka and son-in-law Robert Vadra File photo PTI An alchemic formula Does Vadra possess a secret alchemic formula that enables him to start Sky Light Hospitality with just Rs 50 lakh as promoter’s capital in 2008 and buy vast tracts of real estate in and around Delhi Haryana and Rajasthan The Celebrity Net Worth website estimates Vadra’s net worth at a massive $21 billion There’s yet another crucial fact: as this Rediffreport shows Sky Light Hospitality had a paltry Rs 1 lakh as its paid up share capital when it began Vadra’s artificial jewelry export outfit Artex infused a loan of Rs 445 crores and Corporation Bank gave a generous overdraft of Rs 794 crores to Sky Light The later entry of DLF is a familiar story now In a bizarre parallel the Rs 1 lakh figure is a common factor between Vadra and Sanjay Bhandari whose Offset India Solutions (OIS) too began with a paid up capital of Rs 1 lakh Both men became billionaires almost overnight The rise and rise of Sanjay Bhandari Sanjay Bhandari’s is a truly fascinating tale In the latest Indian Express report Bhandari has“…admitted that the email trail recovered from his computer was indeed that of messages exchanged between him Robert Vadra and Vadra’s assistant Manoj Arora… he acknowledged the exchanges on the subject of finalising interiors for an apartment in London” Indeed the list of Bhandari’s contacts includesthe who’s who of the then all-powerful Congress party starting right from the First Family: Sonia Gandhi Robert Vadra and Sheila Dikshit Apart from his OIS Bhandari was also appointed as a director in the Ravi Rishi-headed Vectra Group of companies which was the largest shareholder of Tatra Holdings the same Tatra Holdings involved in the Rs 750 crore Tatra truck scam which was perpetrated with the collusion of BEML and officials in the Defence Ministry The beginnings of Bhandari’s deep penetration into the Defence Ministry can be traced back to 2010 when he booked a stall at a defence expo in Delhi’s Pragati Maidan according to this extensive reportby the Hindustan Times However it was only in 2012 that he struck gold when the Swiss firm Pilatus engaged OIS and won a Rs 4000-crore basic trainer aircraft contract from the Defence Ministry His stall at that year’s defence expo attracted the bigwigs including Robert Vadra We can track his business trajectory by sampling these: – In September-October 2010 Bhandarireceived one million Swiss Francs from Pilatus even before the basic trainer contract was awarded – Between 2009-14 he received a total of Rs 69 crores from as many as 35 shell companies – In 2012 the South Korean firm KAI had “lodged a protest with the Defence Ministry over the selection of Pilatus as the “lowest bidder” KAI was also in the race for bagging the basic trainer contract – A Hindustan Timesinvestigationrevealed that when “HT randomly picked 10 out of the 35 companies from which Bhandari’s group received payments and found that their office addresses listed with the registrar of companies (RoC) were fake” – The Rs 69 crore came from a hawala operator named Deepak Aggarwal who’s also being probed in a case involving funding to the Aam Aadmi Party Equally the role of “media management” comes in focus in this case as it did in AugustaWestland where a huge chunk of slush fund was allocated for the purpose To quote the Outlook expose on Bhandari “A senior Delhi-based journalist with an English daily is also under the scanner His call data records show that he made at least 478 calls to Bhandari” Now recall the earlier mention of Sanjay Bhandari’s contacts and readthis: "In fact Bhadari’s contact list was so impressive that after the I-T raids he could send word to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through two influential people to explore possibility of immunity in exchange of information However his request received a cold response and he went into a shell deserted by his powerful friends including Cabinet ministers senior intelligence officials industrialists senior judicial functionaries and power brokers" If anything this is the most obvious evidence of the manner in which Bhandari had penetrated the highest levels of the government and the fact that he still had enough clout enough to send out feelers to the Prime Minister himself And equally obvious that those who wielded the levers of the power till 2014 had full knowledge of and in some cases facilitated his endeavours Is Sonia Gandhi nervous This perhaps explains the nervous haste with which Sonia Gandhi jumped in to defend her son-in-law an act which this Firstpost report aptly characterizes as a “strange outburst from a party leader who doesn’t speak to the media very often but on this occasion spoke at length in defence of Vadra who isn’t even a party member” There have been almost no instances in the last 12 years where Sonia has taken Vadra’s name — even when he began speaking out of turn about his political ambitions or that he doesn’t need to depend on Priyanka Vadra etc And now by suddenly emphatically rising to his defence does she tacitly admit that Vadra too is a member of the Congress party Clearly Sonia Gandhi understands the damaging political ramifications Indeed the path of the serial electoral losses the NH and Augusta cases and now Vadra has terminated directly at the doorstep of the dynasty Unlike in the past it appears that this time even if the party so wishes the possibility of finding a scapegoat is non-existent Perhaps for the first time Sonia Gandhi has displayed her nervousness openly?She is named in the Italian High Court judgment on AugustaWestland Sanjay Bhandari too is being investigated in the same case Her accusations of conspiracy and false allegations sound empty for three reasons One because it’s an old diversionary tactic each time the Congress is out of power whether in the states or at the Centre Two the phenomenal blow it received in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls indicate a fundamental shift in the mood and aspirations of the Indian electorate propelled primarily by the national outrage against the decade-long UPA misrule Three because there’s no way Sonia Gandhi couldn’t have known what was happening both within the party and the government Indeed it’s pertinent to recall these bits from Natwar Singh’s One Life is not Enough: "Nothing happens in the Congress without the knowledge and the nod of Sonia Gandhi This is power without responsibility and backseat driving with impunity… there was a mole in his office who supplied information to the Congress President…" Sonia Gandhi’s current state of barely-concealed anxiety over the Bhandari revelations also reveals itself in her usage of Congress-mukt Bharat a phrase devised and popularised by Narendra Modi An oft-repeated tenet in most tomes on politics and statecraft goes like this: “You know that the opponent has imposed his/her will upon you when you start invoking the same phrases and the language that he/she uses while referring to you”
