The exponential rise in Agriculture inflation has been aided and controlled by Mr. Sharad Pawar.
Sharadchandra Govindrao Pawar (Marathi: शरदचंद्र गोविंदराव पवार) (born December 12, 1940), popularly known as Sharad Pawar or ‘Saheb’ is an Indian politician, considered to be the richest politician in India, from the state of Maharashtra. He is the president of the Nationalist Congress Party which he founded in 1999, after separating from the Indian National Congress. He has previously held the posts of Minister of Defence and Chief Minister of Maharashtra and currently serves as Minister of Agriculture and Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Government of India.
Pawar is from the town of Baramati in the Pune district of Maharashtra. He leads the NCP delegation in the Lok Sabha, representing his constituency of Madha in Maharashtra. He has a prominent place in Indian national politics as well as regional politics of Maharashtra.
Pawar also served as the Chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India from 2005 to 2008. In 2010, Sharad Pawar became the International Cricket Council president after England’s David Morgan.
So what are the charges against this wily old man:
Wheat Scam of 2009: In May 2007 a tender floated by the Food Corporation of India for procurement of wheat was cancelled when the lowest bid received was for 263 USD/ton. The government subsequently allowed private traders to purchase wheat directly from farmers that year resulting in a paucity of wheat to stock FCI granaries. By July 2007 the shortage at FCI was large enough to require import of wheat at a much higher price of 320-360 USD/ton. Taking advantage of this, traders who had domestically purchased wheat at 900 INR/ton earlier, were now offering the same to FCI at 1,300 INR/ton. Mr Pawar was accused of creating artificual shortage in the domestic markets allowing traders affiliated with his insitutions to hoard grains and then dump them on FCI to make a clean profit of Rs 400/ ton.
Prem Gupta, president of Roller Mills Federation of India: “This is scandalous. No one knows why the government is importing this expensive wheat. This will cost the government Rs 17 per kg as against the local rate of Rs 12 per kg.”
So how big was Pawar gain? The government ordered the import of 57 Lak mt of wheat at $325 per mt. And then later called for a another tender and has placed an order for nearly 80 Lak mt at $390 per mt. The gain to the traders were close to Rs 800 cr-Rs 1,000 cr with BJP alleging that Pawar affiliated institutions may have made money to the tune of Rs 1,400 Cr. Market Insiders have put Pawar direct benefit at about 1%-1.5% of the scam profit which is close to Rs 120 cr.
Land Scams of 2004-2007
On October 27, 2007, the Bombay High Court served notices to institutions headed by Sharad Pawar, Ajit Pawar and Sadanand Sule (Sharad Pawar’s son-in-law) along with a corresponding notice served to the Maharashtra Krishna Valley Development Corporation (MKVDC) on special privileges were given to Pawar and his family. This was done in consideration of a Public Interest Litigation No. 148 of 2006, filed by Shamsunder Potare alleging that the land said allocations in Pune, made in 2002, were illegal. The institutions and properties mentioned include:
- Two 141.15-acre (0.5712 km2) plots given allotted to Vidya Pratishthan, an educational society headed by Sharad Pawar
- A 2-acre plot allotted to Anant Smriti Pratishthan, headed by Ajit Pawar, the Maharashtra state minister for irrigation and Sharad Pawar’s nephew
- A 32.12 acre plot allotted to Lavasa Corporation, owned by Sadanand Sule, Sharad Pawar’s son-in-law at the time. He handed over his stake in 2006.
- A 1-acre plot allotted to Shivajinagar Agriculture College
- A 3-acre plot allotted to Sharadchandraji Scout and Guide Training Institute
The largest of all the scams that Pawar was involved was the Lavasa plot allocation where Argiculture land was first convertd into Non Agriculture Land and then handed over to Pawar affiliation. The market value of the plot runs upwards of Rs 5,000 cr. That was prime agriculture land.
These allocations were made allegedly under NCP leader and minister Ramraje Naik Nimbalkar who was in charge of MKVDC at the time. Sharad Pawar was served a contempt of court notice on May 1, 2008 in connection with this case for issuing statements to the press even though the matter was subjudice at the time, that was later rejected by the court. Also in connection with the case, the respondents were directed not to create third-party interests in the property under dispute and to undertake any developments at their own risk.
IPL Franchisees Pune and Rajasthan stake
The gall of this man as he declared to the whole of India that he is worth no more than Rs 3.6 crore rupees, the recent IPL Pune team bidding has revealed his 16% stake in City finance which owns Pune franchisee. IPL Pune team is supposedly worth 1200 crore rupees. That makes him and his greedy family richer by Rs 192 cr. Likewise, his 0.05% stake in Royal Challengers Bangalore team is alone worth 6 crores. Have you ever wondered why Lalit Modi continues to be at large even with ED breathing down his neck for over 6 months now. That is cause Mr Pawar protects him less he spills to beans on Mr Pawar.
Pawar Worth = Rs 120cr + Rs 192cr +Rs 6 cr = Rs Rs 318 cr
This valuation does not include a penny from his massive land holdings in Maharastra.
Sharad Pawar as the Agri Minister exported SUgar at Rs 12.5/ kg and then imported Sugar at Rs 36/kg. The amount imported was close 50 Lak ton. Opposition leader Sushma Swaraj accused the Agriculture Minister of “scams” in import and export of rice, wheat and sugar and stated that the government imported and exported sugar “simultaneously. It was being exported at Rs. 12.5 a kg and imported at Rs. 36 a kg at the same time.” She said that there should be a probe in the matter.
All the details have not yet emerged but it seems to be reasonably well established of the same game that Pawar played with Sugar as he exported Sugar at Rs 12/kg and imported at Rs 30/ kg and thus allowing his traders to make more than 100% gain. The counters of the onion scam size has not yet emerged but it could well run into thousands of crores.
Very recently Pawar has been consistently accused of being incapable of handling the extreme hike in onion prices. The opposition have accused him to be responsible on the same issue.
Pawar is also listed on the No Criminals website as an incriminated offender of the Religion Institution Act 1988
The common saying about Mr. Pawar among his enemies and his closest friends is that “Jab hazaar kaminey marey hongey toh Pawar paida hua tha”. – “When a thousand evil doers fell by the wayside, Mr Pawar was born”.
Pawar resembles Gordon Gecko in Wall Street in almost all respect with blatant disregard for the people he serves and whose livelihood he smashes every day, “Greed is Good” as Pawar and his corrupt and greedy family has single handedly managed to loot India’s poor and middle class. He is now 71 years old and yet shows no signs of relenting in his pursuit to accumulate money for his daughter, son in law and extended family members. Even his demise (we do not wish that for anyone) may not free this country of the countless and intricate web of corruption layers he has introduced and now directly controlled by his Son in Law. The state government and the congress leadership has been extremely supportive of his endeavors as long as they get a free share of the loot.
Even the official declaration of their wealth makes =them the richest politicians in India. How and where did they accumalte such amounts of cash. They have no such business which earns profits to that tune. Not even the MDs of Infosys or TCS earns that amount of wealth in that short a time.
It is clearly pointing to the diversion of corruption money into personal accounts of his family members. That is our tax money.
Sule, her husband Sadanand and their two children, have properties worth a whopping Rs 41.52 crore. Aviation minister Praful Patel, however, beats Sule in the wealth game by a few crores, having declared assets worth Rs 49 crore. The 37-year-old daughter of the Union agriculture minister, who filed her nomination for the September 18 election on Tuesday, has raised eyebrows in political circles with her jaw-dropping declared wealth. Pawar himself declared assets worth only Rs 3.6 crore when he contested the Lok Sabha elections from Baramati in 2004. The affidavit shows Sules do not own any vehicle just like Pawar senior, who normally travels in an imported SUV. The Sules have diamonds worth Rs 52,00,100 and gold ornaments worth Rs 18,16,701.
Supriya and Sadanand have each invested Rs 1.97 crore in overseas financial institutions and Rs 14.46 lakh each in quoted shares overseas. They have bank deposits worth Rs 55,79,00,131, while their foreign accounts amount to Rs 10,53,099.98.
The movable assets of Supriya’s school-going children are worth over Rs 1 crore. Daughter Revathi’s movable assets are worth Rs 51 lakh and son Vijay’s assets are worth Rs 49 lakh.
In addition, Sule owns agricultural land at Malegaon village in Baramati (4.16 hectares) and at Dehkalwadi village in Baramati (10 hectares) valued at Rs 15,39,708 and Rs 22,201 respectively. She has houses in Mumbai, Pune and Singapore. One of the Mumbai houses, measuring 256.93 square metres, is located at Peddar Road and is worth Rs 5.53 crore while the second one, belonging to Sadanand Sule, is also at Pedder Road admeasuring 51.72 square metres. It is worth Rs 80.16 lakh.
Supriya has a 7,590-square-metre property in Koregaon Park, Pune, which is worth Rs 73 lakh, while Sadanand has a house in Pune worth Rs 43.50 lakh. The Sules have a 2,365-square-feet flat in Singapore. The total immovable assets of the Sules are listed at Rs 16,53,36,189.
The old saying of the wise man Solomon,a God fearing man, and among the richest of his time says: “He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its income. This too is vanity “. It is utter vanity and Pawar proves that. Alas what will you take to your grave, Mr. Pawar?
We appeal to the citizens of this country. We appeal to the netizens of this country. The educated young class of India, who are not afraid and will not take the loot of this country, to wake up. Time has arrived to take back our money. The money in his accounts is the tax that the honest and hard working men and women of this country has earned.
Begin the campaign. Begin the drive. Let us together get Mr. Pawar to bow down before the country for the sins he has made. Let us take down his greedy family members business units. Let us teach them a lesson they will never forget.
Enough is Enough Mr. Pawar. Time to return the loot. The young of this country have come to collect the loot.!
We have targetted specifically Mr. Pawar even while there are thousands others, but it is the balatant and absolutely incredibly arrogance with which he has looted this country. He is a conduit for many in the government to take money. Pawar is the ring leader and has established methods by which he distributes the cash while the rest allows him to function. Pawar needs to go!!!!
