OFF THE RECORD review on some of todays headlines….
1. Sales Tax Department behind Edible Oil traders
So, the Sales Tax Department is not taking it sitting down. Those in business of manipulation and fattening of books and trying to fool around with the authorities, mind you, it’s game over people! Past one month the latest obsession and target of the Sales Tax Department have been the traders of “edible oil”. Right from Class 1 officers to inspectors the traders are being raided, checked, ripped & are brought down to the books. The raids are ranging from Sangli to JNPT. The main source of this corruption is in fact based out of information from the intelligence coming in from the JNPT. The intensity or the gravity of this scam, is such that easily, as per my source who is in the raiding team, it can be the highest tax invasion scam of our state. On random checking of these trucks carrying Edible Oil at the JNPT, it is found, that the invoices have been undervalued and the quantity of oil is far low from what is mentioned in the challan. In the raids, many addresses have found to be fake/bogus and the person on whom the demand is raised or under whose name company is registered, he/they are generally turning out to be a “dummy” or an hawala agents. But only one negative thing is pointed out by my source. Places where these raids are taking place say at JNPT, our officers are suffering because of non-availaibity of proper food joints and there is no fixed time of duties. This whole exercise is carried only and only on the shoulders of a firebrand lady Joint Commissioner, whom the Commissioner Rajiv Jalota has given a free hand. As I had said earlier, this department is a no-nonsense one today. The Joint Commissioner wants the tax to be deposited to the exchequer. She is a no-nonsense person. But the real challenge is now…People who are behind this mega scam are all MLA’s and powerful politicians of our state. Lets see how does it unfold.
2.फडणवीसांची प्रेयसी २ : पत्रकार हेमंत जोशी
एखाद्या नेत्याचे स्त्रीलंपट नसणे आणि निर्व्यसनी असणे समाजाला खूप काही देऊन जाते, मुख्यमंत्री देवेंद्र फडणवीस त्यातलेच एक, ते सुसंस्कृत सुस्वभावी नेते असल्याने कुटुंबाला दिलेले दिवसभरातले काही क्षण व्यतिरिक्त ते सदासर्वकाळ अगदी ते राजकारणात उतरल्यापासून समाजाला देत आले आहेत, आता तर ते मुख्यमंत्री असल्याने खूप मोठा हातभार राज्याची प्रगती साधतांना होतो. मुख्यमंत्र्यांची प्रेयसी असे जे मी गमतीने म्हटले तो रोख अर्थातच मंत्री सदाभाऊ खोत यांच्यावर होता, हे तुम्हाला वेगळे सांगण्याची गरज नाही असे मला वाटते. पुढे वाचण्यासाठी खालील लिंकवर क्लिक करावे…

3. We are ready for Mid-Term Polls–CM Devendra Fadnavis
I was completely in sync with Cong MLA Nitesh Rane when he asked the Guinness World Record keepers to induct Uddhav Thackreys name for record breaking claims made by him to come out of its own government, but failing to do so, as always. Never ever has Uddhav Thackrey acted on it. One of the senior most person from the Sena had once told me when Uddhav Thackrey for the first time had threatened to withdraw from the Sena-BJP govt, boss, we have come to power only after 20 years and after spending huge amount of monies out of our pockets and not a single help has ever been extended form Matoshri. We are kangaal today. So its very easy for our party chief to threaten for the support withdrawn, but we will at any cost recover for the lost 20 years, as this might be our final chance and shot to do so. I felt he was right…But now when CM makes this kind of statement as he made today, it is something to worry about. He might seriously not be interested in the ongoing fighting with the Sena or within the BJP itself. CM looks tired to me. He looks frustrated with every now & then blackmailing of the Sena. It was easy had the enemy been clear cut Cong & the NCP..He was enough for them…but here the infighting and continuous media glare has bogged his spirits, I conclude. Everytime, like a nagging wife, the Sena is crying for attention. It won’t be far if the CM’s interest dies to such an interest that he mays seriously consider DELHI as his next home. Mid-term polls are far fetched but if time comes PM Modi might just introduce a Maratha CM and yes, thats the only contention of the unrest in Maharashtra today–We cannot digest a BRAHMIN CM.
4. CM’s chopper crash in Latur due to “almost full load”
Whilst the two pilots who were flying were at their best health & shape when the incident of crash landing happened at Latur, CM Fadnavis himself has lost some 30 odd kgs due to strict dieting and continuous pressures of the Sena…Ketan Pathak & Abhimanyu Pawar who were the other two passengers of the chopper are remotely even close to be termed as fat. In fact one day, I shall take them for a proper Gujrati Thaali meal, so that I can actually see an once of fat on their bodies. So this us come down to only one person who is OVERWEIGHT in all the departments. My favourite— Mr. Foreigner —IAS officer who was the only fatty bow in the chopper. These days I can hardly see his neck..Talk about double chin…and now talk about weight been thrown around to save names in the Samrudhi corridor.
5. Ravindra Waikar returns back the land to the state..
Credit only goes to continuous follow-up of SAnjay Nirupam. Even after knowing Waikars image of that being notorious, Nirupam did not bog down..Major victory for the Congress…
