The Anil Ambani-led Reliance group today said it will file a Rs 5,000-crore defamation suit against Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi for making “false and defamatory statements”. A Reliance group spokesperson said: “Abhishek Singhvi has made false, defamatory and libellous statements against the group. We will be filing a Rs 5,000-crore suit for damages against Singhvi for making these false and defamatory statements.” Earlier in the day, Singhvi had accused Finance Minister Arun Jaitley of “fooling” people with his statement that no loans of big defaulters have been waived and claimed that the government had written off Rs 1.88 lakh crore debt of those who had wilfully defaulted. “We all know that top 50 corporates owe Rs 8.35 lakh crore to banks and out of those, three top Gujarat-based companies — Reliance (Anil Ambani Group), Adani and Essar — owe Rs 3 lakh crore. “One of them had last month publicly declared that they are shutting their telecom business with a liability of Rs 45,000 crore due to banks. “We would like to ask Finance Minister Arun Jaitley that far from declaring it as NPAs, you are trying to help the defaulter with further defence contracts like the Rafale deal. Why?” Singhvi asked.

    The defamation cases shows the honesty of the person, industry or business group. Also it is the caution to the people or politicians who are making unnecessary comments. If the strong proof is there, he will win or he loose money and respect from the public.

      6.3 GDP growth achieved during the second quarter reflects the positive effect of the reform measures initiated by Modiji through the FM. A LARGER SHARE OF IT BELONGED TO INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION DESPITE SOME SETBACKS IN AGRICULTURE. THE AGRICULTURE PRODUCTION HAS INDEED REGISTERED GROWTH , HOWEVER, THE PRICES WERE NOT COMMENSURATE TO THAT. THE IMBALANCE NEED TO BE SORTED OUT WITHOUT AFFECTING THE ULTIMATE CONSUMERS..

        The notorious dynasty had embezzled over a lakh crore so far , the largest cache during the 10 years tenure of the UPA. Therefore , AA should have recovered more from the spokes person who is just a puppet maintained to parrot speak what the 10 Janpath thinks, developed based on the crooked advise of the AA , who himself is a recipient of corrupt money from the A.W.Helicopter deal!!
