Arun Jaitley in soup as KPS Gill accuses him of nepotism in Hockey India

New Delhi: Former Punjab police chief KPS Gill on Wednesday wrote a letter to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal complaining against Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s role in the functioning of Hockey India.

In the letter, Gill alleged that Jaitley got his daughter Sonali Jaitley appointed as the counsel of Hockey India when he was member advisory body.

“Shree Arun Jaitley being the advisor of Hockey India League having no Hockey connection whatsoever have got his daughter appointed on the Legal Committee of Hockey India League and reportedly paid huge sums. Shree Arun Jaitley being a very senior minister in the Government should either resign as a Minister or from the Advisory Board of the Hockey India League,” the former top cop wrote in his letter.

Raising questions over “financial irregularities and functioning” of Hockey India, Gill wrote to Kejriwal that the Delhi CM could find all the answers if he uncovers in the “relationship between Jaitley and Batra”.

Narinder Dhruv Batra is currently president of Hockey India.

“The company that is paid a percentage as commission for bringing in sponsors, the rent that is shown as paid for the office [at Mohan Co-operative Industrial Estate, Mathura Road, New Delhi] that is being used by Hockey India, the Lalit Hotel is the only hotel used for stay of teams/FIH [hockey’s world governing body] officials during international tournaments, whether the arrangement for their is finalised after following a due process which is transparent, whether entertainment tax paid during the HIL held in Delhi, the salaries paid to the Indian and foreign staff and why the discrimination between the Indian and foreign players, umpires and officials where payments are concerned,” Gill wrote.

“You may find the answers to your questions as to what is the relationship between Jaitley and Batra.”

Gill concluded: “Your prompt and immediate action in this matter of financial irregularities and functioning of Hockey India needs to be taken up on top priority for the further promotion and development of sports in India and Hockey in particular.”

This came as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers on Wednesday protested outside Jaitley’s residence here and demanded his resignation over alleged corruption in the DDCA.

Top AAP leaders, including former minister and party MLA Somnath Bharti, were present as the protestors shouted slogans like “Arun Jaitley must resign”.

Jaitley on Monday filed a defamation suit against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and five other AAP leaders and sought Rs.10 crore in damages for their statements regarding the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) affairs.

The Delhi government set up a commission of inquiry to probe alleged corruption in the cricket body.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Rajyawardhan Singh Rathore accused Kejriwal of using abusive language against Jaitley’s entire family and running away from his promises of ushering in the politics of no corruption.

  1. How to conquer
    Corruption ?

    There is only one sure – and superfast – way to get rid
    of corruption

    By introducing :


    behind bars ( – and right away ; not after 6 years ) , every corrupt fellow and

    confiscating his ill-gotten wealth


    By abolishing
    Personal Income Tax and introducing Amnesty Scheme , incentivize

    # converting of black money into white

    # acceptance
    of all payments thru official channels

    As far as providing ” Negative Motivation ”
    is concerned , I had sent following suggestion to our Hon Prime Minister /
    Finance Minister / other Ministers / Secretaries etc , on 4th Nov 2015 :

    OF THINGS ( IoT )

    As each currency note of Rs 500 / 1000
    , is getting printed , embed it with microscopic

    RFID chips ( with this , current cost
    of a RFID chip will fall from 50 paise to 5 paise )

    Besides communicating with each other ,
    these chips will also transmit their existence

    location , through internet , to
    cloud-based servers of Income Tax Department

    This will form a ” NETWORK

    You may like to call this Internet of
    Currency ( IoC ) , a sub-set of IoT !

    SYSTEM ( IP V 6.0 )

    Each Rs 500 / 1000 currency note must
    be assigned ( at the time of printing ) , its own

    unique Internet Address , using IP V

    This IP address should be linked with
    the unique Serial Number printed on each note.

    Since IP V 6.0 , will be capable of
    assigning ” 2 * 10 to the power of 128 “, no of IP

    addresses , there is no danger of
    running out of addresses , even if we decide to extend

    this idea to Rs 100 currency notes !

    Here are the most important BYE – PRODUCTs :

    * No more possibility of fake / forged / counterfeit
    , currency notes

    * No thief would ever
    want to steal such currency notes which continuously announce their


    * No one would want to
    make any ” Cash Deal ” . All payments will become official only !

    * Plastic currency notes will last 10 times longer !

    This reform will enable the Central Government / Income Tax
    Department , to :

    * Continuously trace the movement of each of
    these higher denomination currency notes

    * Instantly locate any place ( using Google
    Map based GPS ) , where there is an

    accumulation of more than Rs 1 Crore
    worth of currency notes

    Such accumulation will be made to
    appear as a TAG CLOUD on the web site of IT Dept,

    like thousands of balloons floating on
    a map of India , capable of being drilled down to

    within 1 Sq Meter ! Of course ,
    visible only to IT officers ; not to general public !

    On each balloon , will appear a number
    announcing , ” Amount of Cash here – Rs ” !

    This will vastly simplify the task of
    Anti Corruption Dept / Enforcement Dept etc

    Of course , RBI will need to allow 6 month’s time to the owners
    of current paper currency notes of Rs 500 / 1000 , to get these exchanged with
    new plastic notes before withdrawal of the old notes from circulation

    Implementation of this suggestion , does NOT require passing of
    any BILL in Lok Sabha or being held to ransom in Rajya Sabha !

    And it can be implemented in India , within ONE YEAR

    But if Chinese President Xi Jinping comes to know about the
    practicality of this suggestion , he might implement it in 6 months !

    How come ?

    Simple ! Xi Jinping has
    the political will ! And no historical
    baggage !
