The Lalu Yadav connection to Satyam Fraud storyAn article in the DNA newspaper points to the Bihar connection at work in putting the Satyam Fraud case on the back-burner. Pointing out that some key players involved in the Satyam Investigations have the Lalu Yadav connection, it says:
“The man at the centre of it all, company affairs minister Prem Chand Gupta, is from the RJD, (the former ruling party in Bihar and now a key Congress ally at the Center). The Andhra Pradesh DGP is a Yadav from Bihar, S.S.P. Yadav. The policeman handling the Andhra CID probe is inspector-general of police V.S.K. Kaumudi. When he was with the CBI some years back, Kaumudi probed Lalu’s fodder scam. He obviously knows a thing or two about Lalu’s secrets.

Lalu is preparing for a second stint as a Union Railway Minister and hearings on case threaten to go on for eternity in Ranchi.

Lesson#1: If you have to go to jail, go after stealing a thousand crore not thousand rupees.
Lesson#2: Behind every great fraud, there is a politician.
