Karti Chidambaram has allegedly accumulated unprecedented and unaccounted wealth. His is an unabashed saga of the failings of Indian polity and governance. His rise and rise, and now may be a fall, and the lust to earn tainted money proves how a father-son nexus, especially if the father (P Chidambaram) was thrice the country’s Finance Minister, can plunder a nation. Imagine a nation, where leading businessmen paid $15,000 each, or thereabouts, to the son to fix a meeting with the latter’s father. And then send a “Thank you” email. Imagine a country, where Karti was paid huge amounts to urge his father to okay well-deserved clearances, and slightly dubious ones, from the FIPB for foreign investment inflows. Political leaders in the Congress didn’t dare to act against the father, despite this being common knowledge for years. Instead, Sonia Gandhi and her son, Rahul, nominated him for another Rajya Sabha term in June 2016. In the BJP regime, meanwhile, a senior cabinet minister has the audacity and courage to defy his Prime Minister’s efforts to attack corruption. He is busy with the ‘Save Karti’ operation. Alam Srinivas opens up Karti’s Pandora’s Box of illegal business activities related to INX Media, Aircel-Maxis, Vasan healthcare, and many more. More than 50 questions were sent to Karti but he did not respond.
