The judgment passed by an Italian high court rules that kickbacks to a tune of almost a 1000 crores were paid to various officials of the UPA regime including babus, the ex-air chief SP Tyagi and his kin as also a plethora of leaders thought to be close to UPA chief Sonia Gandhi. 
But what will worry the Congress more is that the court severely indicts the UPA for showing substantial disregard to help Italian authorities in connection with arriving at the truth in the Agusta kickback case. 
While this judgment is a jolt for the UPA, the BJP is seeking answers on where the kickback trail ended. As if rubbing salt into the wounds of the Congress, BJP termed it a party of scams. 
Moreover NDA ministers have gone on record to seek answers from the Congress top brass. The Congress on its part has hit back by calling it a grandstanding without any shred of evidence.

AgastaWestland chopper deal ramifications in April 2016

In what could spell serious ramifications for Congress Party and concerned authorities then ruling in UPA , an Italian court has in its judgement delivered on 15 April 2016 , convicted AgastaWestland chopper company chief Giuseppe Orisi , describing how the firm paid bribes to top Congress leaders in India and lobbied with them to bag the chopper deal. The bribe money seems to be coming to tune of 120 to 125 crores of rupees. In this regard , it may not be out of place to mention here that certain substantial concerns relating to global economy and financial aspects involved were brought by this Vedic astrology writer in article – “ Stressful times ahead for world economy in 2015 and 2016” – published nearly TWO YEARS ago on 2 June 2014 in online magazine (blog) An attempt was made to identify period when , countries or regions likely to have these substantial concerns and aspects of life that could likely be the cause for such substantial concerns. While the article covers many things , one prediction implied was that in April 2016 during first half of 2016 , a major cause of concern in the global economy involving finance or money may surface covering industries , businesses or items related to sound, in a country whose name begins with letter “B”. A simple question may be raised as to how it can be said that the prediction implied related to “Bharatvarsh”. There are about 5 countries round the globe whose name begins with letter “B”. All are in serious problems having something to do with economy during April 2016 , though there aspects involved in problems are of different nature. So when in the instant case of India , aspect of problem – industries or business or items related to sound is applied, it comes to Bharatvarsh only. Let it be clear that these predictions , made nearly TWO YEARS ago , only imply that such a disclosure having intimate connection with the economy of a country could cause substantial concern but does not cover such aspects as correctness or otherwise of disclosures or people or persons responsible. That is not at all in the subject. Link to reach the article :
