BJP and Narendra Modi ‘दोनों हैं संविधान विरोधी’ – Randeep Surjewala

Randeep Singh Surjewala addressed the media outside Parliament today.

श्री रणदीप सिंह सुरजेवाला ने पत्रकारों को संबोधित करते हुए कहा कि सीबीआई डॉयरेक्टर को बहाल करने का सुप्रीम कोर्ट का फैसला मोदी सरकार की नीतियों व निर्णयों पर करारा तमाचा है। अब साफ है कि ‘भाजपा और नरेन्द्र मोदी, दोनों हैं संविधान विरोधी’।

मोदी जी ने राफेल घोटाले की संभावित जांच से घबरा कर रातों-रात, रात के 12 बजे सीबीआई डॉयरेक्टर आलोक वर्मा को एक षड़यंत्र के तहत पदमुक्त कर दिया था। वो सारा षड़यंत्र और मोदी सरकार के मनसूबे आज सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने ध्वस्त कर दिए हैं।

मोदी जी देश के पहले प्रधानमंत्री हैं जिन्होंने, सीबीआई के तोते की गर्दन मरोड़ उसे रातों-रात खत्म करने की साजिश की, ताकि वो भ्रष्टाचार की जांच ना कर सकें। सीवीसी की विश्वसनीयता को मोदी जी ने पूरी तरह से तहस-नहस कर दिया।

यही नहीं 4-4 आर्थिक सलाहकारों और दो आरबीआई के गवर्नरों को मोदी जी की तानाशाही नीतियों के चलते अपने पद से जाना पड़ा। पहली बार सुप्रीम कोर्ट के चार जजों को आगे आकर जज लोया की मृत्यु के बारे में सार्वजनिक तौर से गुहार लगानी पड़ी। सीवीसी हो, सीबीआई हो, आरबीआई हो, सीआईसी हो, हर संस्था को मोदी जी ने अपने पांव के तले रोंद दिया है।

पर मोदी जी ये जान लें कि मोदी जी का डंड़ा तंत्र देश के कानून तंत्र से बड़ा नहीं हो सकता, ये आज सुप्रीम कोर्ट के निर्णय ने साबित कर दिया है। सरकारें आई और सरकारें गई, परंतु हमारी संवैधानिक संस्थाओं की स्वायत्तता सदैव बरकरार रही और आज का सुप्रीम कोर्ट का निर्णय मोदी सरकार के लिए सबक भी है और एक सीख भी, मोदी जी आपके नापाक इरादे ध्वस्त हो जाने के बाद अब समय आ गया है कि सुप्रीम कोर्ट के इस सटीक निर्णय के बाद आप पूरे देश से सार्वजनिक तौर से माफी मांगे और अगर आपमें कानून और संविधान को लेकर थोड़ा सा भी सम्मान है, थोड़ी सी भी नैतिकता अगर प्रधानमंत्री जी में बची है, तो वो सीबीआई डॉयरेक्टर के उस तीन महीने के टेन्योर को जिसका नुकसान हुआ है, उसे वापस लौटाएं, नहीं तो ये साबित हो जाएगा कि चौकीदार ही चोर है और वो राफेल के घोटाले की जांच पर पर्दा डालने के लिए ये सारा सीबीआई डॉयरेक्टर को हटाने का षड़यंत्र उन्होंने किया।

Surjewala said the decision of the Supreme Court today restoring the CBI Director Alok Verma and quashing the illegal and conspiratorial decision of Modi Government is a slap on the policies and decisions of Modi Government. It is now clear that BJP and Narendra Modi दोनों हैं संविधान विरोधी. Scared of a possible probe into the Rafale corruption, Prime Minister and his Government panicked and in the middle of the night at 12 o’clock had illegally removed the CBI Director. Supreme Court has today blown the lid of a concerted conspiracy hatched by Prime Minister Modi and his Government to remove the CBI Director in the middle of the night. Prime Minister Mr. Modi is the first Prime Minister of India, who in a despotic fashion virtually killed the independence of Central Bureau of Investigation i.e. the CBI so that it cannot investigate into the corruption of Rafale.

He is the first Prime Minister who has decisively decimated the competence as also the independence of Central Vigilance Commission i.e. the CVC. Not only this, four Economic Advisors of the Government and two RBI Governors had to make an unceremonious exit on account of the autocratic policies of the Prime Minister Modi. For the first time in India’s history, four sitting Supreme Court Judges have to come out in public and say that they are disturbed by the lack of investigation in to the death of Judge Loya.

Right from CBI to CVC, right from RBI to CIC, every constitutional democratic institution and every institution created by the law and the constitution has been trampled under his despotic wishes by the Prime Minister. But Modi Ji, you must remember that your ‘Danda Tantra’ will not stand in front of the rule of the law and constitution as the decision of the Supreme Court has proved today. Governments have come and Governments have gone but the institutional integrity of our constitutionally and statutorily created institutions have always remained. Let the Supreme Court verdict be a lesson for you Modi Ji that you cannot trample upon the law and the constitution.

Let the Supreme Court decision be a lesson for you and your Government that, howsoever, despotic you may be, the law catches up with you in the end as it has done today. Modi Ji, now that your conspiracy has been exposed and quashed by the Supreme Court, the simple question is will you return the three months of tenure of CBI Director lost on account of your conspiracy and your decision. The test today lies with you if you have even a little faith in our law and the constitution if you have faith in the rule of law, then you must return that tenure, otherwise, the people of India will know that ‘Chowkidar Hi Chor Hai’ that you are trying to stifle, subjugate and brush under the carpet as possible Rafale corruption investigation that CBI was going to conduct.

On a question on Alok Verma, Shri Surjewala said the judgment, as I said, is a slap on the face of autocratic policies and decisions of Modi Government. The tenure of the CBI Director that was lost is clearly three months. If the decision of Modi Government and the CVC which now brutally stands compromised is per se illegal, that tenure has to be returned. Why should the Committee and the CVC and the Prime Minister and the entire Committee, constituted to appoint CBI Director and to take calls on all other issues, not restore that tenure. The only reason why Prime Minister may oppose restoration of the tenure is that he is scared of the Rafale corruption and possible investigation into the Rafale corruption and I think herein lies the litmus test which friends of the media and people of India are looking as to what the Prime Minister will decide.

To another question that the Finance Minister just did a Press Conference where he has said, “it seems that faith in the organizations have been restored and the Government had actually nothing to do with any of this and the moment the Government found that there was something wrong in the organization, they asked both the officers to recues themselves”, Shri Surjewala said the Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley’s statement is an admission of guilt.

When a thief is caught red handed, then such are the statements that come out. Is it not correct that scared of the possible investigation into the Rafale scam, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Government removed CBI Director Alok Verma at 12 O’Clock at night. Is it not correct that a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Appointments was held between 12 O’clock and 2 O’clock at night. What was the tearing hurry and the emergency to remove one CBI Director and to appoint a fresh CBI Director between 12 O’clock to 3 O’clock at night. What was the tearing hurry to remove all officers investigating a particular case and to appoint new officers and issue transfer orders hurriedly in the middle of the night. All this responsibility lies at the door steps of only one person and that is Prime Minister Modi. Court jesters of Prime Minister are now trying to put a lid over the entire conspiracy hatched at the level of the Prime Minister but they will not succeed.

इसको कहते हैं खिसियानी बिल्ली खंबा नोचे।

एक अन्य प्रश्न पर कि जेपीसी नहीं हो रही हैं, सीबीआई डॉयरेक्टर राफेल को प्रोब नहीं कर सकते हैं, तो आपकी राफेल को लेकर क्या रणनीति है, श्री सुरजेवाला ने कहा कि राफेल की तफ्तीश भी होगी, राफेल के घोटाले के पर्दे भी खुलेंगे और राफेल घोटाले के रहस्य की परतें आपने जैसा देखा, हर रोज एक नई परत खुल जाती है और जितने झूठ मोदी जी और उनकी सरकार, जितने झूठ निर्मला जी और उनकी सरकार हर रोज राफेल के घोटाले को छुपाने पर बोलती है, उतना ही वो पकड़े जाते हैं, क्योंकि एक झूठ छुपाने के लिए सौ झूठ राफेल घोटाले पर बोले जा रहे हैं। इस मामले का पटाक्षेप भी बहुत जल्द हो जाएगा, 2019 में सरकारें भी बदलेंगी, राफेल घोटाले की जांच भी होगी, दोषी जेल भी जाएंगे और इसलिए वो उस घबराहट में बार-बार संस्थाओं का हनन कर रहे हैं, संस्थाओं का गला घोंट रहे हैं, संस्थाओं का गला मरोड़ रहे हैं, ताकि किसी तरह से भ्रष्टाचार की आंच जो उनके दरवाजे तक पहुंच गई है, वो उस दरवाजे से अब और अंदर ना आ जाए। परंतु ‘चोरी और सीना जोरी’ इसे ही कहते हैं, पर वो ना चोरी बचेगी और ना सीना जोरी, जैसा आज के सुप्रीम कोर्ट के निर्णय से स्पष्ट है।

To another question on latest revelation on BJP involvement in Augusta Westland case, Shri Surjewala said we have clearly maintained and thank you for asking that question. Augusta Westland benefactor, protector and supporter is truly the Modi Government. It was the UPA-Congress Government that ordered a CBI investigation against Augusta Westland and if there was corruption therein. It was the Congress-UPA Government which proceeded to cancel the Augusta Westland contract. It was the Congress- UPA Government which recovered Rs. 2,954 crore from Augusta against a total payment given to them of Rs. 1,600 crore, that means virtually Rs. 1,400 crore extra were recovered from them. It was the Congress-UPA Government which proceeded to blacklist the company, order of which came a month after us demitting power.

Prime Minister Modi has successively protected Augusta Westland (a) by undoing its blacklisting (b) by making it part of ‘Make in India’; (c) by giving it FIPB permission and permission to manufacture AW-119 Helicopter and (d) by permitting it to bid for Naval Helicopters. But the conversation that you have quoted only proves what we have been saying all along that this Government is trying to manufacture evidence on the verge of the election to only indulge in blame-game, but, howsoever mud they may throw, the truth remains that Prime Minister Modi and his Government are the protector, benefactor and the supporter of Augusta Westland and their role needs to be actually probed.
