The real face of Rajeev Gandhi Foundation: they have got funds from several foreign governments. what is the reason behind it?

Published

on

Another ruse to add in the list of Congress party’s scandals is the recent scam of donations from several foreign governments, Indian Ministries,  Public Sector Undertakings, private companies, and some unethical organizations and apparently for some favour.
It is now disclosed that during the UPA 1 regime the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF) received over 1 crore from the Communist Government of China in the year 2005-06. RGF is a charitable trust whose Chairperson is Congress President Sonia Gandhi and its board composed of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi, P. Chidambaram, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, and Priyanka Gandhi.
It is to note here that not only China has donated to RGF but other foreign governments viz. Ireland, Luxembourg, and other European Countries too have made such donations. RGF has also received donations from various suspicious and precarious sources like FNS (Friedrich Naumann Stiftung), a Germany based liberal organization.
Amit Malviya, head of IT cell of BJP, on Thursday has tweeted in a series of his tweets that the RGF had taken funding not only from the Chinese Embassy in Delhi but also from the Chinese government.
He further claimed, “This donation started showing results soon after. Rajiv Gandhi Foundation did not just one but several studies on how a Free Trade Agreement  (FTA) between India and China is desirable and required. “
Tweeting next, Amit Malviya questioned Congress if these so-called donations had some connection with the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Congress and the Chinese government in 2008. He even suspected the Congress party of hiding many facts from India on its relations with the Chinese government.
On 23rd June BJP, President JP Nadda rightly tweeted, “First Congress signs MoU with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Then, Congress surrenders land to China. During the Doklam issue, Rahul Gandhi secretly goes to the Chinese Embassy. During crucial situations,  Rahul Gandhi tries to divide the nation and demoralize armed forces. Effects of MoU?”
Is it that the Congress-led UPA government opened up the Indian market for China thus, giving a major jolt to the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises in India? Can China’s donation to RGF be rightfully called ‘bribe’ or ‘compensation’ for sabotaging the domestic business of India?
Now, in context with the donations received from other foreign countries, were the similar MoUs signed with these nations too! In light of this, the question is what these nations/parties received in return?
Not just these foreign nations but also seven central ministries and 11 PSUs donated to Rahul Gandhi Institute for Contemporary Studies during the UPA regime. The biggest question is that the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (PMNRF) which is meant to provide funds towards relief operations and help people in distress donated money to a research institute! Besides PMNRF, the Home Ministry, HRD Ministry,  Health Ministry, Ministry of Environment and Forests along with PSUs such as OIL, IDBI, HUDCO, SBI, ONGC made donations to the RGF. Just ponder, who chairs PMNRF board and RGF? Smt. Sonia Gandhi.
How immoral and unethical of a government to transfer its funds to the NGO is run by the same people. Is it not a lack of transparency and highly controversial? In every way, it is malfeasance and corruption.
The annual reports of RGF reveal that the number of private businesses have made donations to it. The only reason why such a great deal of funds was donated to a foundation that was chaired by top functionaries within the government is gaining moneymaking opportunities and thus, producing a lot of money. One such company is Unitech which is infamous for its involvement in the 2G scam.
Besides RGF, Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust (RGCT) founded by Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi too is extensively indulged in several scams. Reports suggest that RGCT has also received a huge amount of donations from the Rural India Supporting Trust based in the United Kingdom and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Another donor is Sreedhar Potazaru, a well known Democrat donor in the US who in 2017 was imprisoned for 10 years for committing a fraud of around $49 million. In 2013 he had donated 11.7 lakhs to RGCT.
This list of Congress party deceitful and clever acts does not end here. Sonia Gandhi’s association with the Clinton Foundation takes Congress party’s scandals to the next level. Clinton Foundation or CF is a slanderous and controversial organization formed by former US president Bill Clinton. It was the corruption and fraudulence in its management that led to the broke down of the presidential rule of Hillary Clinton in the year 2016. There are numerous allegations and rumors swirling around the Clinton Foundation. US President Donald Trump even called the Clinton Foundation the most corrupt enterprise in political history.  Financial corruption and unethical practices being the core of the Clinton Foundation and its relations with RGF definitely raise eyebrows.
Some other highly controversial donors and working partners in the list of RGF top donors are the Ford Foundation and the Aman Biradari Trust.
Is this information not sufficient to expel the Congress party from contesting elections on the ground of threat to national security? RGF and RGCT have definitely compromised Indian national interests for their own personal and political interests.
A PIL was also filed in the apex court of India on Wednesday,  seeking directions to the CBI or NIA to investigate the 2008 MoU agreement.
