वीर सांघवी ने नीरा राडिया मुद्दे पर मुंह खोला

वीर सांघवी और नीरा राडिया: अपने ब्लाग पर अपना पक्षा रखा : बरखा दत्त – नीरा राडिया बातचीत प्रकरण में बरखा दत्त खुद सामने नहीं आईं बल्कि उनका बचाव एनडीटीवी समूह के सीईओ ने किया. उधर, वीर सांघवी ने अपना बचाव खुद ही करना शुरू कर दिया है. उन्होंने ओपेन मैग्जीन समेत कई जगहों पर उनके व राडिया के बीच बातचीत के टेप प्रसारित होने के तुरंत बाद अपने ब्लाग पर सफाई दी. शीर्षक है-  ”My response to the Radia transcripts”. अपनी सफाई में सांघवी ने कहा है कि इस बातचीत में ऐसा कहीं कुछ नहीं है जिससे साबित होता हो कि उन्होंने किसी के लिए लाबिंग की हो. और भी बहुत कुछ कहा है लिखा है लेकिन लिखते लिखते वे कुतर्क करते हुए दिखने लगते हैं. यकीन न हो तो खुद पढ़ लीजिए. उनके ब्लाग पर प्रकाशित उनके पक्ष को साभार लेकर हम यहां नीचे प्रकाशित कर रहे हैं.

My response to the Radia transcripts

-Vir Sanghvi-

Several months ago, stories began appearing in a section of the media suggesting that I – along with other journalists – had lobbied on behalf of A. Raja. As I have never met Mr Raja and have attacked his corruption in both print and TV, these assertions struck me as bizarre. The stories were based on tape-recorded conversations that Niira Radia had with innumerable individuals, including several journalists.

A magazine has now published what purports to be transcripts of those conversations though it says “We are in no position to endorse the contents of the recordings” which presumably means that it is not guaranteeing their authenticity. While nobody can remember verbatim every conversation that took place 19 months ago, these transcripts do not appear to be entirely accurate.

Moreover, there is nothing at all in the transcripts to suggest that I lobbied for Mr Raja. The conversations recorded relate to the phase when there was an impasse between the DMK and the Congress. Ms Radia called several journalists, including me, to ask us to convey a message to any Congress leaders we met in the course of our work. This message was, essentially, that the Congress was communicating with the wrong people in the DMK.

While gathering news, journalists talk to a wide variety of sources from all walks of life, especially when a fast-moving story is unfolding. Out of a desire to elicit more information from these sources, we are generally polite. I received many calls from different sources during that period. In no case did I act on those requests as anybody in the government will know. The second conversation relates to the dispute between the Ambani brothers. I had asked Ms Radia to explain the position of her client, Mukesh Ambani. And I also asked Anil Ambani’s side for its views.

This was recorded in the piece. I wrote: “My friend, Tony Jesudasan, who represents Anil, took me out to lunch and made out a case for Anil. I was totally convinced till my friend, Niira Radia, who represents Mukesh, gave me the other side which frankly seemed just as convincing to my inexpert ears”. I also wrote, “Why do the Ambanis think that all of us should take sides in their battle? Or that we should care what happens to them?” That still remains my view.

    please , please Mr. sanghavi dont raise mukesh – anil dispute. you know once pindara box is open, it will take many big-big in clutch. a person , retired from most prestigious post has to clarfy his stand prior to taking charge of another highest post of an institution, meant for SC. whether that post was offer to favor Mukesh ? why GOV. stand with mukesh ? Go through judgement , you will find what took place in the case. I nevr afraid to say the fact, but unfortunately B4M is owned by Yashavant. He may publish or discard my view but you have raised the issue so definately i will put my version on my blog after 20th November as right now i am busy in coverage of Bihar election.

    सूचना प्रौद्योगिकी का कमाल है. कल तक जो बातें दबी छिपी रहती थीं वे अब सामनें आ रही हैं. मसला यह है की प्रवर्तन निदेशालय के “किसी और” प्रयोजन के लिये नीरा राडिया के फोन सरकारी इजाजत के साथ टेप करवाये थे. किसे पता था कि खोदा पहाड़ और निकली चुहिया की जगह लोमड़ी (FOX) निकल आयेगी. खैर, तो रिकार्डिग के सारे टेप आयकर विभाग को बिना सुने भेज दिये गये. बस, वहीं कोई राष्ट्रभक्त था जिसने आपके हमारे लिये और भारत की जनता के लिये ये रिकार्डिंग निकाल बाहर की. भारत की जनता को सुनाइये. अपनी वॉल पर साझा करिये. सबको बताइये की क्या बला है यह अबला बरखा दत्त, यह वीर वीर सांघवी और गंदी बाद करने वाला प्रभु चावला. इसके जैसे बाकी और बिचौलियों के भी भेद इसी तरह खोलिए. टेप में कई और लोमड़ी हैं.
