Out on bail Rahul Gandhi chooses alleged money launderer to replace Alpesh Thakor as Congress secretary of Bihar

Just hours before India went to vote in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections, Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor had resigned from Congress saying that all he wanted in Congress was ‘respect’ but all he got was ‘insult’.

All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary (organisation), KC Venugopal, in a press release today, announced that the Congress President Rahul Gandhi has chosen ex-MLA from Gujarat, Ajay Kapoor as the AICC secretary for Bihar with immediate effect. He will be replacing Kshatriya Thakor Sena head, Alpesh Thakor who recently resigned from the party.

Recently, in a major setback to Congress, just hours before India went to vote in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections, Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor had resigned from Congress. In his resignation letter, Thakor said that all he wanted in Congress was ‘respect’ but all he got was ‘insult’.

Adding that he had no political aspirations or hunger for power, Thakor said, “If I had political aspirations, I would not have joined Congress in its bad times and when it was struggling.” He added that Congress has backstabbed him.

Interestingly, the controversial leader, Alpesh Thakur, who, during his association with the Congress, had been instrumental in instigating the mob to take to violence and inciting widespread violence in Gujarat through his hate speech against non-Gujaratis and has been booked for trespassing and falsifying evidences, has been replaced by a leader, Ajay Kapoor, who is a suspected money launderer.

The Enforcement Directorate had reportedly raided Ajay Kapoor and his brother, Vijay Kapoor’s house and factory in January 2019, for their alleged involvement in a money laundering case. The ED had alleged that Congress MLA, Ajay Kapoor had, at the time of demonetisation, converted crores of black money through several fake bank accounts. Many had also suspected that Ajay Kapoor owned several ‘benami properties’, which was also one of the reasons why the MLA was raided.

In 2015, another shocking case involving Ajay Kapoor’s kin had transpired in which a stolen and two dismantled trucks along with a few bones were recovered from a factory owned by Congress ex-MLA Ajay Kapoor’s elder brother, Mallik Vijay Kapoor in the Panki Industrial area.

However, the appointment of an MLA with such a shady past just does not come as a surprise considering the party president Rahul Gandhi, who has endorsed and appointed Ajay Kapoor as the AICC Bihar secretary, himself is out on bail and hails from a family whose members are all involved in multiple scams.

The National Herald scam is one of the most notable legal cases in Indian history, as the Gandhis are directly accused. The mother-son duo of Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi, along with their aides – Oscar Fernandez, Motilal Vohra, and Sam Pitroda are alleged to have involved in massive ‘cheating and breach of trust’ in the acquisition of Associated Journals Ltd (AJL) by Young Indian Pvt Ltd (YIL), as assets worth crores of rupees had been allegedly transferred for purposes other than originally intended for a paltry sum. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi got unconditional bail in December 2015.

Moreover, Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law, Robert Vadra is also involved in multiple scams. Recently, OpIndia disclosed Rahul Gandhi’s links to Sanjay Bhandari, an arms dealer who is not only close to the Gandhi family but was also rebuked by Dassault in the Rafale deal.

OpIndia has accessed evidence to show that Sonia Gandhi’s Italian family could have been involved in the Bofors scandal, with their names carefully hidden from the public eye.

Also, Congress president’s mentor and close aide, Kamal Nath’s shady past has been recently brought into the forefront. Bundles of cash have been recovered, hawala links emerged and AgustaWestland scam suspicion have been revealed. Similarly, Congress bigwig P Chidambaram’s families disreputable past and their involvement in money laundering cases and various other scams have also been unmasked.

Amusingly, last year when Congress, had in a tweet, spoken about the ‘anti-corruption day’, the Twitter users had come down hard at the party reminding them of their own legacy. UPA led by Congress from 2004 to 2014 presided over some of the major corruption scams in the history of independent India.

In its 50 years of reign on independent India, the Congress ecosystem has nurtured and sheltered many such misdeeds. Probably this misconduct and corruption have become so deep-rooted in their system that the Congress dynasty has lost the ability to decipher between the right and wrong. This is probably the only plausible explanation one can think for these dynasts who have been shielding and fortifying all sorts of criminals and habitual offenders for ages.
