We are not even in the game. The pakistanis have way more assets than us in Afghanistan. And they have successfully shifted the allegiance of the pashtuns from the Afghan state towards them. Something the Afghans wanted to do to the Pakistanis.

Till it doesn't affect Kashmir, India is not in game but in case Pakistan tries to play mischief which it will, to counter Pakistan in POK, India have to be influential in Wakhan region and Tajikistan.

On this forum some one posted a photo I think it was that Safir and also saw on other forum and on twitter as well, showing Indian artillery positions exactly within hours of CFV in J&K. The locals were protesting against the deployment. What it means? That Pakistanis got the exact locations without using satellites :p before hand.
Where as till now there are no enough photos of pakistani artillery in civilian areas in POK ever came in media or shown by Indian media.

India used to blame that Pakistan Army uses civilian area to suppress artillery Pakistani blamed it back to India with an evidence and protest by locals lol.

Pakistan HUMINT network in India is strong which is given thanks Chacha ji... did you ever notice that every major Indian military sites is surrounded by mosques which suddenly popped up one after another, after every new military construction... Everyone panties are in a twist from America to china after we removed article 370. they are really s**t scared specially Pakistani's that we are going to change constitution which we should have long time back....Modi is to unpredictable for them specially Chinese.
Kashmir problem could be solved right now while whole world is distracted from coronovirus. if it's up to me I would send every 3rd landless guy in this country to kashmir along with an assault rifle to settle down. while sending all Nordic Kashmiri to Bihar. Whole problem will be solved in no time.

Even many Hindus knowingly or unknowingly are part of that.

Everyone panties are in a twist from America to china after we removed article 370. they are really s**t scared specially Pakistani's that we are going to change constitution which we should have long time back....Modi is to unpredictable for them specially Chinese.

A370 is irrelevant. Pakistan aims to expand it's territory where as India puts all the resources to defend. Whatever is happening is happening inside Indian border because Pakistan and China keep India busy in turmoils.

Water, land , and resources that's all a conflict is about.

There is no solution to it.

Well there the problem. India need to be aggressive at least with Pakistani's.. History has shown aggressor always win on a long run. I bet if things were in reversed and Pakistan was in same position geographically , economically those islamist would have eaten us alive. You are are dealing with a typical macho Punjabi hot gas With brain of a peanut from across the border with dreams of mughaliastan on subcontinent once again.

I have been thinking about this a lot. The thing is demographic change is an extremely long process it takes a lot of time and still can backfire. We could do some ghar wapsi but the moment the media will get some idea they will start pumping articles against the state. And the international media will gobble it up and will create an image of fascist India stronger. A much better technique is using the Chinese method. Subtle reeducation of Muslims in Kashmir by using madrassas . The thing is maulvis are the interpreters for Islam for the general muslim population and they create the message. Most radicalisation takes in madrassas. Simply control the maulvis and make them say pro-india line and little by little the population will start thinking differently. Money is stronger than alllah buying there loyalty would be pretty easy take the control of the sunni waqf board and make it loyal to the government and then we can push any agenda we want. The maulvis will make the mullas pro-india and use the social media to demonize Islam which is also done now but more successfully. Plant the liberal pill in mullahs and make them weaker. This will have immediate effects on the muslim population. Muslims are the only minority group that don't participate in any way. The whole system is in a way to keep them backward so you have fools that go to tableeghi jamaat . The liberal and commie politicians and the maulvis benefit from this system. We need more tarek fateh's .

Soldiers are fighting terrorism and Ambanis Adanis looting the government and people. No doubt that he is a Dawood's man after reading the below article, more over that Anil Ambani had links with D gang in dubai as well. Investigation on Ambanis for Economic terrorism should be opened.
Many party members of BJP are reliance people. (I believe)

Submarine deal, Rafael Deal, 5G, now petrochemicals under Government being sold to them. BJP is compromised to capitalists. Who can even approach ISI to neutralize the rivals. And People think all the information on defence deals will not be leaked to Pakistan/China?

I hve a doubt that French were not very interested to give the ToT to Ambanis and that's what the fuzz was all about because they knew the background of the firm and links with people in Pakistan, who would leak the tech to China.

Year 1989

Bombay Dyeing-Reliance feud: RIL executive arrested on charge of conspiring to kill Wadia
The Bombay Dyeing-Reliance Industries feud took a startling twist with the arrest of senior Reliance executive Kirti Ambani on the charge of conspiring to kill Bombay Dyeing Chairman Nusli Wadia. A volatile mix of politics, crime and business, it is the political dimension of the case that is most intriguing.
Raghu Nandan Dhar M. RAHMAN .Prabhu Chawla August 31, 1989 ISSUE DATE: August 31, 1989UPDATED: October 30, 2013 17:56 IST


The protagonists are a study in contrast. On one side, Dhirubhai Ambani, a street-smart operator whose rags-to-riches story has rewritten corporate history and radically changed the rules of the market-place. And ranged against him, Nusli Wadia, a suave, sophisticated tycoon descended from centuries of empire builders.
The contrast does not end there. Ambani presides over the fastest-growing industrial group in the country with assets of Rs 3,875 crore. Wadia is chairman of Bombay Dyeing, a conservative institution with assets of just Rs 259 crore.

Despite that, their battle has become one of the fiercest and most personalised in Indian corporate history, involving not just business rivalry but also the most powerful personages in the country. But now, even by their extreme standards, what is unfolding is, possibly, the bloodiest chapter in the cutthroat war.

The arrest last fortnight of Kirti Ambani, a senior employee of Ambani's Reliance Industries for conspiring to murder Wadia, exploded like a well-timed bomb, shaking the judiciary, the bureaucracy, the corporate sector, and, above all, the political establishment.

By last week, as Kirti, 48, Reliance general manager (public relations), was finally released on bail after spending sleepless nights in a dingy Bombay police lock-up, the case had created ripples that reached the office of the prime minister, caused deep rifts in the ruling party, and almost jeopardised the career of Maharashtra Chief Minister Sharad Pawar. The reason for the widespread tremors: the tentacles of the Ambani empire reach into every corner of the Government's power structure, while Wadia has the unrelenting backing of the Ramnath Goenka-owned Indian Express newspaper chain. Wadia is also a good friend of Pawar.

Claims and Counterclaims
Ambani Camp
  • Why would the Ambanis want to eliminate Nusli Wadia? He is much too insignificant a business rival for them to take such an extreme and foolhardy risk.
  • They are among the fastest growing industrial houses in the country. They have no need to stoop to such criminal activities at this stage of their growth.
  • Nusli Wadia blames his business set-backs on the Ambanis. He is trying to retaliate by taking the support of the Indian Express group.
  • This is a frame-up essentially aimed at undermining the unprecedented Rs 920-crore public issue of Larsen and Toubro to be launched in a few weeks from now.
  • Why would they hire a small time criminal like Babaria? If they had to eliminate Nusli Wadia, they would have surely employed a professional killer who could do the job quickly and efficiently.
Wadia Camp
  • Dhirubhai's sons, Anil and Mukesh, hold Nusli Wadia responsible for the stroke which almost crippled their father in 1986 following the pressure put on him by V.P. Singh and the Indian Express.
  • Wadia would be a major source of information about the Ambani's business dealings if a new government headed by V.P. Singh is formed.
  • By silencing Wadia, the Ambanis will silence the Indian Express. They believe Wadia is keeping the Express afloat.
  • The conspiracy to kill Wadia was hatched months before Ambani applied for the L & T share issue.
  • Since all the top hit men of Bombay have recently been liquidated or arrested in the police crackdown, there was no choice.

It is these larger dimensions that have given the case a sensational twist, as has the modus operandi for the alleged plot - hiring contract killers from Bombay's underworld to eliminate Wadia. Though the Ambanis have been tight-lipped, apart from a press release on the day of the arrest terming the case "a frame-up", the Bombay police seemed to have a substantial case.

The two men involved in the investigation, Police Commissioner Vasant Keshaorao Saraf, 55, and Joint Commissioner (Crime) Arvind Siddeshwar Inamdar, 48, have impeccable reputations. But even they were startled last month when a senior Crime Branch inspector reported a meeting with an underworld contact in which he learnt of a 'supari' contract floated last November. 'Supari' contracts, in which gangsters are paid to carry out a killing, are nothing unusual in Bombay's underworld. But the target of this one was someone special: Nusli Neville Wadia.

The events that followed exposed the explosive implications of the case.

July 12: A day after Wadia landed in Bombay after a trip abroad, Saraf detailed a team to protect him.

July 17: Saraf sought a meeting with Pawar, met him along with Inamdar, and detailed the extraordinary dimensions of the case. Worried that the information would leak to the Ambanis, the two police officers insisted that only the chief minister who is in charge of the home portfolio, and Home Secretary S. Ramamoorthi be briefed. Minister of State for Home Vilas Sawant who is said to be close to the Ambanis was kept in the dark.

July 20: Ramamoorthi wrote to his counterpart at the Centre, detailing the case, emphasising its seriousness, requesting that Union Home Minister Buta Singh be informed, and suggesting that the CBI be asked to take over investigations.

July 23: Getting no response from New Delhi, Ramamoorthi sent another letter asking for instructions.

July 28: With the Centre still maintaining a deafening silence, Pawar gave the signal for the arrest of Kirti Ambani who was out of Bombay; the police decided to wait.

July 28: CBI boss Mohan Katre, known for his close links with the Ambanis, flew in to Bombay. Unusually, Katre went to the Bombay High Court where Wadia's visa case was being heard even though the CBI had nothing to do with it.

July 31: Kirti returned to Bombay from Patalganga. At 7.30 p.m., Crime Branch officers visited his office at Nariman Point and then accompanied him to his plush residence situated in Twin Towers complex, a lane away from Wadia's idyllic beach-side bungalow. While the house was being searched, another posse of officers picked up Arjun Waghji Babaria, 35, from his modest, powder-blue tin shack in the backyard of the Bhendi Bazaar Police Quarters. Babaria, a podgy, goateed drummer who called himself 'Prince Babaria' was known to be a 'fixer' who arranged contract crimes.

August 1: Kirti Ambani and Babaria remanded to police custody.

The arrest and subsequent details of the case left observers dumbstruck. Kirti is known to journalists as an amiable, soft-spoken .public relations man who often acted as a spokesman for Reliance. But since 1985, he had also been in touch with Babaria. In an album seized from Babaria's house, police found photographs of the two together. They also found newspaper photographs of Wadia and his black-topped Buick.

However, the likelihood of the Ambanis, despite their street-fighting image, stooping to murder, was received with incredulity. The immediate reaction was that the Ambani arrest was part of a larger political game involving Pawar and his fragile relations with the Centre. The fact that Pawar is a friend of Wadia and has no love lost for the Ambanis only added to the swirl of speculation.

But there was also the other side of the story: the fact that the Bombay police is known for its apolitical image and that the two officers, Saraf and Inamdar, were the least likely to be involved in any political shenanigans. Both have unimpeachable reputations for integrity and ability. Saraf, who became commissioner two years ago, worked in the CBI in the '60s, then in raw and the Intelligence Bureau. Inamdar, famed for refusing to bow under political pressure, has been transferred 22 times in his 25-year career. The state Government had even recommended his transfer to the Centre; Saraf had stalled it.

Then, as bits of the evidence started leaking out, the murder case began to look more plausible. According to the police, Kirti allegedly sounded out Babaria last November for arranging the killing of a 'big businessman'. Babaria was a fixer with widespread contacts in Bombay's underworld. The contract, according to police sources, was worth Rs 50 lakh and Babaria was to be the go-between.

But finding the right contract killer was proving difficult. For, the last 18 months had seen a police crackdown which had left many contract killers dead or in jail. Babaria apparently decided to use small-time killers, hoping to keep a larger share of the 'supari' money. By the time he was arrested, he had acquired a Premier Padmini car, a colour TV set, jewellery and other valuables.

Babaria introduced 'Shanu', a young gangster involved in two murders, to Kirti as 'Shakeel', one of Dawood's well known hit-men. Babaria and 'Shanu' met Kirti several times at two hotels, Horizon and Palm Grove. The plan allegedly was to block Wadia's limousine with another car as he emerged from his bungalow in Prabhadevi and gun him down. Alternatively, Wadia was to be killed as he left his office at Ballard Pier, which is quite deserted at his usual departure time of 8 p.m.
Police say that the murder plot was far advanced. Two revolvers had been acquired and others hired for the job. 'Verma', a garage man from Babaria's area, was paid Rs 50,000 to buy the guns and drive the getaway car, while a second, unnamed gunman was hired for Rs 10,000. But the actual execution was delayed because they were looking for a third gunman They were also unsure of escaping. And Wadia's frequent trips abroad did not help either
".

After several postponements, July 24 was fixed as D-day. But Crime Branch officers had, by then, stepped into the picture. The sleuths made Babaria telephone Kirti Ambani from, the police station and recorded three conversations between them and another between Kirti and 'Shanu'. On one of.the tapes, Kirti allegedly complains: "Why hasn't it been done yet? The bosses are after me."

Adding spice to the speculation is the fact that rivals of the Ambanis have in the past often run into unusual accidents. Pankaj Mehra, son of Orkay's Kapal Mehra, was in 1982 beaten up and left in a ditch in Patalganga Jamnadas Murjani, president of the All-India Crimpers Association, and a vocal critic of Reliance was attacked with a sword in 1986 in Bombay. And Bipin Kapadia of a rival firm, Hakoba Embroidery, was attacked with a knife, in 1974, outside Akbar Hotel in New Delhi.

The arrests made, Crime Branch officers started grilling Kirti and Babaria, confident of extracting the details of the alleged conspiracy. But then, expectedly, the Government woke up to the significance of the case. Since the request from the state Government for the CBI to take charge of the case was already in the files. New Delhi issued a notification within 24 hours,directing a take-over. .

Pakistan had all the information about India's oil reserves and new policies on economic for dealing sanctions after nuclear test 1998. As per the article below. Thanks to reliance industries
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sandipan Deb, Ajith Pillai, Ishan Joshi, Sujata Anandan
30 November 1998

It was exactly eight in the morning of November 19 when the Ambassadors carrying the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team braked in front of the building called Sea Wind in Mumbai's posh Cuffe Parade. A few minutes later, the CBI men went further than any government agency had gone in the 35 years since Reliance Industries came into public focus. They entered Dhirubhai Ambani's top-floor apartment with a search and seizure warrant.


Simultaneously, CBI teams were barging into Reliance offices both in Mumbai and Delhi, and into the houses of top executives of the Rs 13,000-crore company. They stayed for more than eight hours, scouring every nook and cranny of the premises with a fine toothcomb. It was no ordinary raid. Indeed, strangely enough, for a company that has always matched the meteoric speed of its business growth with a penchant for lurching from controversy to scandal, this was only the third time that the company had been raided in three decades.


But more importantly, this time, the CBI was looking for evidence of no commercial crime, but violations of the Official Secrets Act, a draconian law framed in 1923 which gives the investigating agency sweeping powers to accuse, arrest and keep suspects in custody for any length of time with almost no legal recourse available to the accused. The raiders' aim: to see if the Ambanis and Reliance were in possession of any classified policy documents of the government.


Initially, Reliance denied that there was any raid on. But as the news spread like wildfire through India's media and business community, and the rumour mill began grinding, the company decided to admit the facts. The next morning, Reliance spokespersons announced that the search-and-seizures had turned up nothing incriminating. Not everyone agreed. CBI sources told Outlook that the raiders did recover some documents that revealed what went on behind the scenes before Indian Oil Corporation signed the deal of the decade with Reliance Petroleum, virtually guaranteeing the company's profits for years to come. These papers, claimed the sources, were classified Petroleum Ministry documents that come under the ambit of the Official Secrets Act.


The trail that led the government to the Ambanis started with the arrest in Delhi of now-infamous Dawood Ibrahim henchman Romesh Sharma. When the Delhi Police discovered evidence linking Sharma with Reliance Industries' president in Delhi, V. Balasubramaniam, on October 28, they raided the residence and office of the top executive, the man known in the corridors of power as "Balu", and reputed to be Dhirubhai Ambani's chief fixer in the capital. Though Balu's home yielded nothing, when the searchers opened his office drawer, they found something they didn't like. The search and seizure report of the Delhi police lists three "incriminating documents", on the basis of which Balu was booked under the Official Secrets Act:


  • Photostats of the 17-page Cabinet Secretariat document No 72/1998 relating to a September 14 meeting of the Core Group on Economic Matters on The Challenge of Economic Sanctions to India.
  • Photostats of the nine-page minutes of the 37th meeting of the Core Group of Secretaries on Disinvestments, held on September 21. The police also found that these documents had been faxed to a Mumbai number in the Reliance head office, and another unlisted number, again in Mumbai.
  • Photostat of a letter written by Petroleum Secretary T.S. Vijay Raghavan to Revenue Secretary Javed Choudhry containing tentative proposals on restructuring customs duties on petroleum product imports leading up to the full opening up of the oil sector in 2002. This document had also been faxed to a number in the Reliance head office.

The possession of the first two documents may not result in any obvious commercial gains for the Ambani empire, but the third would surely have been something that Reliance, whose primary business is petroproducts, could use to plan ahead, far ahead of their rivals.


Reliance has weathered many storms in the last three decades, but this could well turn out to be the worst that has struck its ship. Though the moment Balu's name cropped up in the police reports, Reliance categorically stated that Balu's proximity to Romesh Sharma was purely in his personal capacity and had nothing to do with his employer, the discovery of these documents has dragged the company into the picture. And Reliance has been plunged into a situation where it seems to have no defence at all. The company can hardly claim that Balu acquired these documents in his personal capacity. Besides, Balu faxed them to the Reliance head office, proof of which is with the investigators.


It is a fairly open secret that Reliance has over the years cultivated a network of government officials who have given advance information to the company on upcoming policy changes. The company has always been suspected of acquiring government documents to plan its business strategies, and there have been enough allegations that the company got hold of Budget proposals days before the finance minister stood up in Parliament to read his Budget speech. Now, the seizures from Balu's office provide incontrovertible proof that Reliance was indulging in legally punishable activities. And if the government can prove that the seized documents come under the Official Secrets Act, then the Ambani empire is in deep trouble. It will require every ounce of Dhirubhai's political clout to get him out of this one.


But whatever the Ambanis' strategic response to the raids—and there will surely be one—as things stand, the search-and-seizures have raised a number of puzzling questions. For instance, have the raids been instigated by more than just the Balu connection? Why did the Reliance raids come a full 21 days after the documents were found in Balu's drawer? Indeed, even the identity of the ministry which ordered the raids seems unclear.


Reliance itself claims that this is part of a corporate war. It is not naming who these business enemies are, but the usual suspect's name has cropped up: Nusli Wadia, chief of Bombay Dyeing, who has been fighting a no-holds-barred war with Reliance for more than two decades now. Wadia apparently was in touch with his friends in the BJP in the days preceding the raids. Wadia's friend, industrialist-politician Jayant Malhoutra, though, scoffs at this. "Nusli Wadia's sales are today less than Reliance's profits, so where's the rivalry?" he says. "They are blaming business rivals to mislead the people. Actually there's a slip somewhere in what they call 'managing the environment'."


But, say market sources, Wadia has not been alone in his Ambani-hatred for the past few years. His close friend Ratan Tata reportedly still suspects the Ambanis of having engineered the leak of tapes of embarrassing phone conversations between Wadia and Tata, and Wadia and industrialist Keshub Mahindra last year, relating to Tata Tea's connections with the ULFA in Assam."Today there's no difference between Wadia and Tata. They're one and the same," says a top Mumbai stockbroker.


There's another business family name that is being whispered in the corporate world as being behind the raids: the London-based Hindujas. As the Ambanis have pursued their single-minded agenda of backward-integrating their business, from textiles to polyester fibres to the petrochemicals that go into making the fibres, and finally to petroleum refining and even oil exploration, they have been moving closer to a little-known moneyspinning business of the Hindujas: exporting crude oil and petroproducts to India. The recent deal between Indian Oil and Reliance that commits India's largest oil corporation to buying a large part of the production from Reliance's enormous upcoming refinery may not have been music to the Hindujas' ears.


But a top aide of the prime minister has a different view. He insists that the decision to raid was more CBI director Trinath Mishra's than anyone else's. According to him, both Vajpayee and home minister L.K. Advani, when informed by Mishra of his plan a couple of days before the raiders moved in, made it clear that this was not what they wanted. Neither, apparently, was in favour of humiliating Dhirubhai by raiding his house and made this clear to Mishra, while telling him that he should do what he "felt was right". This is the (unofficial) official line and this is the logic backing it:


The situation after the December Supreme Court order on the appointment of the CBI director has made it dangerous for any government to mess with him. It is also being pointed out that R.C. Sharma, Mishra's predecessor, was not granted an extension by the court, making it very clear who has the authority over the CBI. There is a definite attempt by those close to Vajpayee to paint Mishra as the man who acted on his own.


The raise-doubts-about-Mishra's-intentions strategy includes floating the story that "though his integrity is without doubt", there could be other reasons. The main being the fact that Mishra is only an acting director of the CBI and that the Central Vigilance Commission, which is now in place, will appoint the director for a fixed term after a few months—the innuendo is that he did it to ensure that it would be far too controversial not to confirm him after he has very publicly taken on as big a fish as Reliance.


Like every theory on the raids, this too has enough debunkers. "No bureaucrat would ever take this sort of action on his own against a man as powerful as Dhirubhai," says a Mumbai-based Reliance official. "Searching Dhirubhai's home, entering his bedroom, is unthinkable. No CBI director would do this. This is a political act." But whose? Consider this: the CBI comes under the prime minister's office, but investigations relating to the Official Secrets Act are the Home Ministry's responsibility. So who okayed the raids?


The Ambanis are seen to be close to Vajpayee and Pramod Mahajan, and, though traditionally close to the Congress, the group has not done anything to upset the BJP. The only black mark against it in the BJP's book is Reliance's alleged funding of BJP rebel Shankersinh Vaghela's election campaign in 1995 and 1997. After Vaghela made it to the Gujarat chief minister's office, he reportedly pushed through the group's 27-million-tonne refinery project at breakneck speed. Vaghela supporters touting this Ambani support angered Advani, who has traditionally been anyway seen as cold to the Reliance charm.


Opposition politicians allege that the Reliance raids are just part of the BJP strategy for the upcoming assembly elections in four states
. On the backfoot in Delhi and Rajasthan, the BJP may be using the raids to prove to the electorate that it is firmly committed to rooting out cor ruption, no matter how powerful the culprit. This, too, sounds flimsy since raiding vegetable hoarders would have been a far more effective and easier decision than insulting the Ambanis.


Reliance insiders also allege that this is just a ploy to divert public attention from the many politically sensitive skeletons that could be tumbling out of the Romesh Sharma investigations. "If you pursue all the trails from Romesh Sharma, you would end up with an amount of dirt that no government would like to handle," says a source. "So make a hue and cry about Reliance, and the people are forced to look in the wrong direction, while you quietly hush up the potentially embarrassing stuff."


But was the government serious about the raids? Why were 21 clear days allowed to elapse between the recovery of the Balu documents and the raids on the Ambanis? It is clear that Reliance was forewarned. The Ambani-owned daily Observer of Business and Politics had been carrying stories for days that the government was considering raiding Reliance offices. At least three days before the raids, Mumbai business circles were buzzing with rumours. In fact, Reliance offices were inundated with calls from journalists asking whether the raids had begun. So if there were incriminating documents to be recovered by the CBI from Reliance offices, the company had more than enough time to get rid of them. Yet, the ferocity of the raids—specifically, the search of Dhirubhai's home—surprised even Reliance.


The only explanation seems to be that the order to raid must have been given in full earnest, but Reliance has enough bureaucrats friendly with the company to delay the raids and leak the information. In fact, one story doing the rounds in Mumbai business circles is that the initial proposal extended even to arresting Dhirubhai and his two sons, Mukesh and Anil. This was overruled at the last moment by the prime minister's office. It is, however, clear that Reliance's traditional clout over the Central government—whoever runs that government—has eroded since the BJP-led coalition came to power.


What happens now? Will the government pursue the investigations to their logical conclusion? But does not this also involve ferreting out bureaucrats who have been feeding sensitive and classified information to Reliance? How deep does Reliance's influence go in the corridors of the ministries? A full investigation will open up a Pandora's box which could have far-reaching—indeed difficult-to-imagine—consequences.


This is in fact the Ambanis' best hope. Says an industrialist friendly with the family: "Under the law, both the bribe-giver and the bribe-taker are equally culpable. If the government is serious, let it also find out who in the government leaked the documents to Balu."


There is also doubt about whether the Delhi police had got its investigative procedures right when it raided Balu's office. A widely accepted interpretation of the Official Secrets Act is that the incriminating documents should be "secret" on the day of recovery. The authority which decides whether a document is top secret when it is seized is the Cabinet secretary whose office then issues a certificate to this effect to the investigating agency for use in a court of law.This, it seems, was not done when the documents were seized from Balu's office. Official sources admit that a letter to the effect that these documents were "secret" was obtained by the CBI only a couple of days before the November 19 action from the Cabinet secretary, nearly three weeks after the first raid.


Another allegation is that independent witnesses, though taken along for the raid as is the requirement, were not taken into the room where the documents were found. Could these foul-ups, if they did happen, weaken the case against Balu and therefore Reliance on a technicality?


Meanwhile, industrialists are already whispering of the possibility of the government launching a raid raj, since Advani has been talking rather aggressively about cracking down on corruption in all the election rallies he has addressed. A flurry of raids, however, seems unlikely, since this will be the kiss of death for an economy that is already floundering.


But in the offices of Reliance, dismay is giving way to resolve. The company is even reconciled to the fact that a few top people could be arrested in the coming weeks. Strategies are being hammered out, and favours are being called in. One thing, though, is clear. The Ambanis, who have never been known for the quality of forgiveness nor forgetfulness where past slights are concerned, are not going to go down without fighting. For beneath the calm managerial stances, the family feels that its patriarch has been insulted, humiliated. Government men entered his home. That, the family feels, crossed every line that the Ambanis have believed to be sacrosanct. It was a declaration of war.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It harldy matters who ordered the raids but the fact remains the same, douments on oil and economic policies were faxed by Reliance man to Reliance office, as per the article and which also went into the hands of dawood's man.

China will do an agreement with Indians and I think it's under process that no fighter jet will carry any weapon along LAC, just like Indian soldiers. China will then use drones to crash into Rafales and say they did not use any weapon. :)

China opposes any force using terrorism to seek geopolitical gains, Chinese FM says after Pakistan blames India, Afghanistan for Dasu terror attack


Chinese are big time hypocrites, handing over such heinous crimes to ISI will cost them more. Otherside these chinese deploying SAMs in POK and Afg


They are preparing for multi front war. India should keep the CPM and CPI under strict watch. And also the business community dealing extensively with China. All the Chinese trade should be monitored.

The International Department of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (ILD-CPC) is one of the most important, but least well understood, organs of China’s foreign affairs system. It is a relatively large and quite active organisation, operates worldwide (and throughout China) and performs a variety of important functions for the CCP and government. Yet it is a difficult institution to research and learn about, and many things that one would like to know about the ID are simply not knowable.

On August 7, 2008, Rahul Gandhi, General Secretary of the Indian National Congress (INC), and Wang Jiarui, Director, International Liaison Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the presence of the President of INC Sonia Gandhi who was also the Chairperson of United Progressive Alliance (UPA) I at that time, President of China, Xi Jinping who was then the Vice-President of China and Congress leader Anand Sharma.

But is the International Liaison Department of CPC only a China foreign policy influencer or is it a covert intelligence agency of China.CCP’s International Department is an important and yet often overlooked unit of China’s power and influence under the CPC. While the department was positioned for diplomacy with other foreign communist parties, the ILD-CPC has reshaped itself over the past 20 years as a flexible and alternative channel to traditional state-to-state diplomacy with other foreign parties globally not only communist parties. The department’s core objective is to use party-to-party contacts to help safeguard the country’s interests and facilitate state-to-state relations.”

GoaChronicle.com accessed an email sent by BBC to Stratfor (Global Intelligence Agency) under the Email ID – 662942. Email subject titled: BBC Monitoring Alert – China. it reports the entire Xinhua interview of Sonia Gandhi on June 29, 2011. Sonia Gandhi explains the macro-nature of the MoU with ILD:

Here is the text report in English by the official Chinese news agency Xinhua (New China Agency) in the article titled ‘Indian ruling party hopes to boost ties with China’s leaders’

Beijing, 29 June: The Indian National Congress (INC) party and the Communist Party of China should intensify their exchanges, especially at the level of the younger leadership of the two parties, INC leader Sonia Gandhi says.

“Such a dialogue should address all vital issues of mutual concern through visits, seminars and a productive exchange of ideas, skills and experiences,” Gandhi said in a recent written interview with Xinhua as the CPC celebrates the 90th anniversary of its founding on July 1.

Those areas could include infrastructure building, inclusive growth, employment generation, and environment protection, among other things, Gandhi said.”

Gandhi said. India and China have pursued different paradigms of development as they have different political systems, natural resources and endowments, Gandhi said.

Both countries have scored many achievements since independence and liberation respectively, but they also face challenges to greater development and prosperity, she said.

Both countries have the potential to learn from each other, she said. Sonia Gandhi visited China in 2007 and 2008 as INC chief.

She said that INC and CPC signed a Memorandum of Understanding during her visit to China in August 2008. One of the key components of that memorandum was a shared commitment to strengthen exchanges amongst the younger leadership in the two parties. More visits and exchanges, particularly among the youth wings of the two parties and between students of the two countries, are extremely important, she said. That’s to ensure that the generation of young leaders in China and India know and understand each other well, she said, thus deepening the relationship between the two parties, the two peoples and the two countries.


In a report in 2016 by the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission – Chapter 2 ‘US-China Security Relations there is brief attention drawn on International Liaison Department:

“Before the dissolution of the four general departments of the PLA, the International Liaison Department under the General Political Department of PLA was responsible for collecting foreign intelligence through networks of official and unofficial agents abroad. ILD agents used informal contacts with foreign actors to identify and investigate individuals and organizations to collect intelligence and expand China’s influence abroad.”

Five years earlier in its 2011 report US-China Economic and Security Review Commission opined that the International Liaison Department conducts ints perception management operations in accordance with centrally determined (China Communist Party) propaganda messages.

Furthermore, in 2009, the office of the Director of the National Intelligence identified the Chinese Liaison Office (International Liaison Department as a ‘major collector’ of intelligence against U.S. interests.

A Secret Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Document in possession of GoaChronicle.com titled ‘Intelligence Report – The International Liaison Department of the Chinese Communist Party’ released in 2007 by the US Government states: Organised geographically and working hand-in-hand with Chinese embassies in various countries, the ILD performed the task of finding, investigating and eventually supporting pro Chinese groups. ILD pursued a patient, soft-sell policy providing funds to keep the promising groups active and offering political and organizational training.

ILD of the CPC was a relatively obscure and clandestine brand of the party but today in its present status as an open, active participant in the implementation of Chinese foreign policy.

“The Secret CIA Report shockingly reveals that ILD although a Party Department although a party department, was off status comparable to numerous branches of the State Council (Government). Its primary responsibility was to maintain contacts with friendly Communist Parties in Communist-ruled countries and to find, nurture and develop pro-Chinese sentiment wherever it was found. In this capacity, it often worked hand-in-glove with overseas MFA personnel in the embassies. At the same time. it is clear from the available evidence that the MFA and ILD kept their functions carefully separated. ILD personnel were of a “higher status” and better paid than were those of government bodies because the ILD was a Party organization.


Wikileaks document from the ‘The Global Intelligence Files’ that contains Stratfor Global Intelligence email of an ‘Intel-Services China Report of 2010’ documented as 133464 Intel Services China, that report states:

“Two organizations have historically been involved in covert action, a strategy that China has come to avoid. One is the International Liaison Department, which is controlled by the PLA’s General Political Department. Responsible for establishing and maintaining liaisons with communist groups worldwide, the liaison department used such links to foment rebellions and arm communist factions around the world during the Cold War. More recently it has used this network for spying rather than covert action. “


Here is a candid view of the International Liaison Department of CPC intelligence role which was provided in the Czech Intelligence Service BIS’s 2015 Annual Report -a copy of which is in possession of GoaChronicle.com:



“In 2015, the dominant Chinese intelligence force in the Czech Republic was military intelligence, whose activities supplemented the efforts of a specific Chinese intelligence organization, the International Liaison Department of the Chinese Communist Party. This is an agency under the Central Committee of the CCP, whose remit includes, besides foreign relations, intelligence activities.

In 2013, India’s current National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval had written a paper titled, “Chinese Intelligence: From Party Outfits to Cyber Warriors’.

The paper concluded that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) over the years, has upgraded its intelligence capabilities at tactical, technological, and strategical levels, particularly in the Asia Pacific region, South Asia and Central Asia. The Ministry of State Security’s (MSS) has evolved itself as the premier foreign intelligence agency besides diplomatic intelligence, it has been aggressively hunting for technological data and systems information to augment national economic and military capabilities. It continues to bank heavily on the Chinese global diaspora that provides it a vast catchment area for human assets for intelligence gathering and espionage. To widen its catchment area, it is expanding its illegal cover for intelligence gathering by using commercial companies and business houses, media agencies, Chinese banks, etc. The establishment of nearly 380 Confucius Institutes in 180 countries, Chinese language institutes, etc. also is part of its foreign intelligence activities. China envisions for itself a big power role and, silently but steadily, is building up its intelligence capabilities commensurate to that vision.”

In order to understand China’s penetration in India. It is important to go back to the focus on the CPC and Indian National Congress Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as an example of the strategic work of the ILD to infiltrate political parties and then policies through political parties, media houses, businesses, and investments in infrastructure and technology.

On January 6, the media had reported that 150 comrades gathered at a five-star hotel in New Delhi to listen to a detailed presentation by Meng Xiangfeng, a central committee member of the Chinese Communist Party (CPC) and confidante of President Xi Jinping.

CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI national secretary D Raja, and Chinese ambassador to India Luo Zhaohui where on the dais, when Meng gave a detailed presentation about the 19th party congress of the CPC held in October 2017.

The CPC delegation’s visit, facilitated by the government, was focused on building a narrative that bilateral ties are not only about disputes such as the tussle at the India-China-Bhutan-tri junction in Doklam or incidents of border incursions. The deliberations, said a leader present at the meeting, were centred around bilateral ties and friendly relations, apart from, of course, the outcome of the CPC party Congress and the future of Communism.

The CPC has close ties with all Indian parties, and the Left parties have more ideological proximity with them. But China’s seriousness about expanding its ties with Indian political parties, including the Left parties, was evident from the scale of the meeting attended by representatives of the Indian Left parties. Traditionally, such meetings used to happen in party offices. The meeting venue this time was chosen by the Chinese embassy in New Delhi.

Reportedly, the visit was part of an exchange programme between the International Liaison Department of the Communist Party of China (ILD-CPC) and the ministry of external affairs.The delegation also met the then Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

Even the then Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh met with a delegation of the International Liaison Department of the CPC on a visit under the MEA-IDCPC Exchange Programme in 2018.

In a research paper titled ‘China’s “Quiet Diplomacy”: The International Department of the Chinese Communist Party’ written by David Shambaugh

Over the past eight decades of the ID’s existence, it has performed a mixture of positive and negative roles. On the negative side, it has sought to subvert foreign governments and has smuggled weapons to insurgent groups. It has been a missionary of revolution, a propaganda agent, an intelligence collector, and a supporter of brutal regimes such as the Khmer Rouge. More positively and more recently, however, the ID has served as an alternative diplomatic channel and secret envoy in sensitive negotiations with North Korea (and possibly Iran), a vehicle to learn from abroad to aid China’s modernization, a conduit to introduce foreign officials and experts to China and as a means to build ties with foreign societies and political parties. Like many other aspects of Chinese diplomacy, the ID has morphed from a disruptive and revolutionary institution into one that promotes reform at home and the status quo abroad. The ID operates relatively quietly and its activities are not reported in foreign media or analyzed by scholars of Chinese foreign policy.

The CCP’s International Liaison Department (ILD), manages the Party’s relations with foreign political parties, international political organizations, and overseas political elites. The ILD maintains ties with over 600 such groups from 160-plus countries and has enjoyed a markedly higher profile under Xi Jinping’s advocacy of a “new type of political party relations”.

According to Song Tao, the ILD’s director since November 2015, through “exchanges and cooperation with foreign political parties” the agency “can influence the other side’s attitudes and policies toward China, and make the other side understand, respect, and approve our values and policies.”

Last year, Hou Yanqi, China’s ambassador in Kathmandu, has spent the last three months playing peacemaker to feuding members of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP). Relations between the communist parties were cemented with an agreement in September 2019 between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the NCP.



It was signed by Madhav Kumar Nepal, chief of the NCP’s international relations department, and his Chinese counterpart, Song Tao, head of the CCP’s international liaison department.

In fact, the current ruling party of Pakistan, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (Pakistan Justice Party), has also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Communist Party of China, to help strengthen party-to-party relations in 2018.



During the event held at Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Song Tao, head of the International Liaison Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, signed the MoU. Song said at the signing that party-to-party relations would help to further promote the economic, social, and cultural ties between the two countries.

India must beware of China’s International Liasion Department.

In January 2011, before Xi Jinping became General Secretary of the CCP, he spoke at a meeting dedicated to the 90th anniversary of foreign affairs work (as old as the CCP) and the 60th anniversary of the ILD, saying that the latter was established to be responsible for the CCP’s relations with foreign parties. Xi stressed that the party’s foreign affairs work had an important role in total diplomacy as it allowed the party to build a positive image on the international stage, gather information, and support the central authorities in decision-making.

Today, the ILD is interested not in exporting the communist revolution but in establishing contacts with foreign political elites who will support the CCP’s policies in their countries and help create an international consensus on issues important to China.

ILD-CPC strategy working with political parties. Second is contacts in a country, it is responsible for developing people-to-people relations and creating a network of contacts for China’s healthy and stable external relations. The third is research on the country and its socio, economic and political concerns. The aim is to supply China with information on international relations and regional developments, party politics, and changes in societies. According to ILD, researching and monitoring international developments will allow China to take the initiative on issues that are important to it in order to propose a “China Solution’. ILD focuses on informal exchanges with China-minded governing and opposition parties, political organisations, think-tanks, the media, NGOs in order to consistently cultivate people who know China and are friendly to the Chinese, with the aim of finding a common language and mutual understanding.

Intelligence reports indicate that the ILD has been in regular contact with Indian political parties in particular Congress and CPI (M) in order to influence local developments. Indian politicians should be aware of the CCP’s goals in establishing foreign contacts if they want to protect society from external influence, adhere to the requirement of transparency, and avoid being caught in the CCP’s grip.

In 2021, reportedly Intelligence inputs indicate that around 40,000 Indians are in contact with the International Liasion Department (ILD) of the Communist Party of China (CPC). These individuals are politicians, journalists, and business leaders.

NEW DELHI: The Indian intelligence establishment has been alerted about Pakistan-based groups floating a new tanzeem (terror organisation) that would claim responsibility for future attacks on security forces, their sources, mediapersons seen close to the government, non-locals in the Valley, Kashmiri Pandits, ruling party politicians, and industrialists, intelligence sources said. A hit list of 200 entities and their vehicle details has been prepared by ISI-backed groups, the intelligence suggests.

The input reveals that a meeting of the ISI brass with heads of various tanzeems took place in the last week of September in Muzaffarabad, Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. An intelligence note seen by TOI mentions that it was decided at this meeting that this new frontal organisation would not only claim future targeted killings but also attract resources, manpower and network infrastructure.



Last year, the ISI had floated a front organisation for LeT called The Resistance Front (TRF), which now claims the majority of the attacks in the Kashmir Valley.
The latest alert suggests that attempts at targeted killings will continue in the “non-campaigning season” as well. Also on the target in the Valley are non-locals connected with RSS and BJP.

Pakistani intelligence agency ISI recently held a meeting with leaders of several terror outfits in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir’s Muzaffarabad. India Today accessed exclusive details of the meeting that took place on September 21.





Indian intelligence agencies came to know about the confidential meeting between ISI officers and terrorist organisations. Accordingly, the agencies issued an alert, a copy of which is in possession of India Today.

According to the alert, in the meeting, the ISI had prepared a plan to launch large-scale attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. It was purportedly decided in the meeting to do maximum target killings on the Indian side of Kashmir.

It was decided that Kashmiris working with the police, security forces, intelligence departments would have to be killed. Non-Kashmiri people and people associated with the BJP and RSS were also selected as targets during the meeting between ISI officers and leaders of terror groups.


As per the alert, the ISI had made a “hit-list” of 200 people who would be murdered to create tension in the valley. Other than media personnel close to the Indian government and sources and informers of the Indian agencies and security forces, the list allegedly included names of many Kashmiri Pandits who have been actively advocating for the return of Pandits to Kashmir.

The ISI and terror outfits agreed to use terrorists who are not under the watch of Indian security forces for the latest attacks and target killings. To “project it as a spontaneous and totally indigenous activity”, Kashmiris with no records of crime, but known to be sympathisers of militancy, would be used, the Indian alert said.

“For supporting these activities, pistols and grenade are being smuggled through LC from Uri & Tangdhar,” the alert said.

In the meeting, a new terror outfit was supposedly created that would take responsibility for target killings and attacks to mislead the Indian investigating agencies.

Indian intelligence agencies fear growing Chinese presence in Lanka​



Indian intelligence agencies have raised concerns over the growing Chinese presence in Sri Lanka, says a report published online by The Hindu yesterday.
According to The Hindu newspaper Indian intelligence agencies have also noted concerns over attempts by some in the Tamil Diaspora to seek China’s support after India failed to protect Tamil interests in Sri Lanka.
The report said: In a note to States, a Central agency referred to a conclave of the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora held in London recently and said the delegates felt that India had not taken it seriously to safeguard the interests of the Sri Lankan Tamils and even lost its influence over the island nation. The conclave was convinced that the fate of the Sri Lankan Tamils would be in jeopardy if the Chinese established their presence in northern Sri Lanka.
Noting that “inaction” on the part of the Government of India had paved the way for China to gain prominence in Sri Lanka, the conclave decided to take all out efforts to establish contact with the Chinese Government to create a political and economic base for Sri Lankan Tamils.
“They assume that the Chinese will welcome such initiatives as it would assist them in northern Sri Lanka to have a hassle-free presence, besides facilitate them in their stance against India,” the note on security preparedness said, adding that the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora was deploying its global resources to tap Chinese intellectuals to gain a groundswell of opinion favouring their efforts. However, the conclave had strong dissenters to the strategy as they believed that the Sri Lankan Tamils would lose the support of the Indian Tamils.
Adding to the Central inputs, Tamil Nadu Director-General of Police (DGP) C. Sylendra Babu wrote to the Commissioners/Superintendents of Police (SPs) on reliable information about the LTTE remnants regrouping and holding meetings near Thiruvanmiyur in Chennai “very often”. The alert was given days before the National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested former LTTE intelligence operative Satkunam, alias Sabesa, 47, on charges of indulging in drug trafficking with international links and also funding the revival of the defunct organisation in Sri Lanka. Materials seized from his premises in Valasaravakkam, Iyyappathangal, etc., revealed evidence of a huge transfer of money to his contacts in Sri Lanka, investigators said.
At the meetings held in Chennai, the participants chalked out strategies for further course of action in the backdrop of the developments relating to the increasing presence of Chinese defence personnel in Sri Lanka. Since the Chinese presence in the neighbourhood could pose a threat to India, the DGP called for enhanced surveillance along the coastal districts.
The State intelligence, relying on the Central agency inputs, said some radicalised Muslims were brought from Pakistan and Turkey by senior Sri Lankan political leaders and made to settle in Batticaloa, Mutur and Kalpatti. They had started madrasas to spread their ideology in eastern Sri Lanka and had planned to infiltrate into India, police sources told The Hindu on Sunday.
