15- 16 February, 2014, at Ranchi


Inline image 1


Every year Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and National Election Watch (NEW) hold National Conference in different states with primary focus on Electoral and Political reforms. The Conference is held with the aim of bringing together and synergizing efforts towards strengthening democracy in the country.
Topics of discussion during the conference range from ‘Need for electoral reforms’, ‘Reducing Impact of money in elections’ to ‘Role of media in elections’. These discussions have been enriched by the participation of eminent people including the Chief Election Commissioner, former Chief Justices, representatives of political parties, civil society and the media.

This year, ADR and NEW take great pride in inviting one and all to the 10th Annual Conference, being held in Ranchi, ‘the city of waterfalls’.

With the Lok Sabha Elections around the corner, the 10th Annual National Conference to be held in Ranchi on the 15th and 16th of February holds a special charm. ADR’s campaign, Mera Vote Mera Desh’ will be the primary focus of the conference, which is being inaugurated by the Election Commissioner of India, Shri H S Brahma. With a strength of 1200 partner NGOs, the National Election Watch has launched the Mera Vote Mera Desh’ Campaign to sensitize the voters across the nation not to sell their votes and not to cast their votes for tainted candidates. The emphasis of the Mera Vote Mera Desh’ campaign is towards enhancing voter awareness and their empowerment, thereby reducing the impact of crime and money in politics.

Apart from a discussion on the campaign, the 10th Annual National conference will also focus and debate on ‘Political Party Reforms’, Role of Media in Elections’ and ‘Pending Reforms with the Law Commission’. These deliberations would have eminent panellists and Chairpersons. An update on the plans and strategies from the various ‘State Election Watch’ for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections will also be held.

Mr. Arvind Kejriwal,
Honorable Chief Minister,
Delhi State Government
New Delhi 110002
Dear Sir,
You need STRAGEDY than Politics to Convict Criminal Minds.
Al Capone the notorious gangster was finally convicted on charges of
Tax Frauds.
Here I had devised a similar STRATEGY – RIL hired most expensive Rigs
at Exorbitant Days to PAD Capitalization – this is enough to put him
jail for 5-7 years in jail.

PIL to Register FIR Against Mukesh Ambani, RIL
November29, 2011
Honorable Chief Justice of India,
Supreme Court of India.
Petrobras Contracted 24 Rigs for $2b for 5 Years
Average Day Rate
Perobras $0.114m, ONGC $0.140m and RIL $0.509m
Sir,
Prayer – Please direct CBI to Register FIR and investigate Over
Charging Day Rate at $0.509m by RIL when Petrobras Charged $0.114m and
ONGC $0.140m. Full details are with CBI for two years but is waiting
for directions from CBI to Order CBI to Register FIR against RIL &
Muesh Ambani.
When average day rate per rig paid by
Petrobras was 0.114m,
ONGC $0.140m
but RIL Paid $0.509m clearly pointing to Mega Scam.
http://iadc.org/dcpi/dc-mayjun06/May06-brazil.pdf
The package deal included 5-year contracts and has a total of nearly
US$ 2 billion. It is believed to be the largest deal of this kind for
the offshore sector and it has certainly been financially beneficial
for Brazil’s national oil company. While some rigs are going for as
high as US$ 405,000 per day, the highest rate Petrobras paid was US$
254,000 per day. Indeed, only two of the rigs chartered by Petrobras –
Noble’s deepwater semis Paul Wolf and Dave Beard – surpassed US$
200,000 per day, well below going dayrates elsewhere.
Of the 24 rigs secured by Petrobras, 17 are semis and 7 are
drillships, with their water depth drilling capacity ranging from 600
m to 3,000 m, although only 6 have capacity beyond 2,000 m. Many
contracts were simply rolled over, but there were new contracts too.
The companies involved in the deal were recognizable international
names such as Transocean, Pride, Noble and Diamond, as well as
national companies such as Queiroz Galv√£o and Schahin Oil & Gas.
14 companies, including Petrobras, are active in the Santos Basin.
Petrobras’ concession spans more than 40,000 sq km and includes 10
exclusive exploratory blocks and 19 blocks held in partnership. Of
that 19, 13 are operated by Petrobras. The remaining 13 companies hold
20 exploratory blocks spanning some 13,000 sq km.
“13 companies hold 20 exploratory blocks spanning some 13,000 sq km.”
Brazil leased 13,000 sq.km to 13 companies but GOI allotted 25 huge
blocks (270,000 sq.m) to RIL between 1999-2001.
Yet RIL hired 1 or 2 rigs paid four times (4X) the average day rate by
Petrobras and 3.5 times (3.5X) than average day rate of ONGC.
Important
RIL in a Press Release claimed KG D6 discovery holds 40 times more
Natural Gas than ONGC but in spite of spending over $10b there is poor
supply of Natural Gas – production loss due to Hoarding along with
GSPC who backed down to let RIL monopolize Offshore – is $500b. This
too be investigated separately.

Arvind Kejriwals FAKE FIRs –CAG – RIL Drilling ONGC GSPC Blocks
February11, 2014 AN Arvind Kejriwal has responded after 15 months to my EXPOSURE that RIL
was Drilling in ONGC and Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation Blocks.
RIL hired Rigs that could penetrate 45000 feet or 15000 yards or well
over 12 kilometers and reach ONGC Blocks in the process Damaged Oil &
Gas blocks and caused many $Trillion Loss.
Oil & Gas blocks to RIL were allotted by RAM NAIK, Narendra Modi
Connived With RIL in not objecting to extracting Gas from GSPC blocks.
THIRD HAND COMPLAINTS WILL NOT GET YOU ANY WHERE.
All the Documents were submitted by me to CBI first in 2009 and later
November2011.
CAG also has same details.
Some important pdfs are attached for Arvind Kejriwal.

CAG – Ambani Extracting Gas from ONGC and GujaratSPC Discoveries
October31, 2012
It is disappointing Arvind Kejriwal deliberately making weak
allegations against Ambani and BJP. Arvind Kejriwal didn’t demand
Cancellation of 88 of 90 Exploration Licenses to RIL and GSPC. In fact
GSPC of Narendra Modi was Completely Blacked Out Mysteriously that had
failed to commercialize a single block since 1999 allocations of
blocks.
It is also a mystery – BJP government allocated over 100 blocks but
didn’t award any ‘Common Gas & Oil Pipelines’ – and eventually RIL was
also allowed to Monopolize Gas Pipeline also – RIL gave the contract
to a Chinese Company in 2007 – RIL didn’t have skills to lay even
pipeline.
Actually in aid of RIL – GSPC didn’t commence ‘Commercialization of
Deen Dyal Discovery of 2005 until recently.’ – Giving Mukesh Ambani
Monopoly in Oil Exploration.
Firstly BJP allowed RIL then owning 12% equity to 54% and Indian
Public was practically excluded from shareholding therefore ‘GOI and
Indian Public had no control over RIL Operations – virtually a private
company.’
Corruption in Oil & Gas by RIL was ‘Mother of All Frauds’ – Coal, Iron
Ore, Highways, Power Plants, BALCO, etc.
RIL owned 90% – Foreign Collaborator 10% No Indian Public Equity.
CAG – RIL Drilling in ONGC and GSPC Discoveries
CAG reports of March2012 ‘Clipping of 4 Pages’ attached clearly states
RIL is drilling in ONGC block directly and GSPC blocks indirectly has
production platform in GSPC block that enables Deep Drilling to
extract all the gas in Deen Dyal Block.
October31, 2002
‘Reliance’s gas reserves in its exploratory block KGDN-6, off
Vishakapatnam, are to the tune of 40-50 million cubic metres per day
and are expected to go up to 100 cubic metres of gas over a 10-year
period.
Reliance’s gas reserves are expected to feed the gas-starved country
for almost a century. The firm will have to invest more than Rs 7,000
crore (Rs 70 billion) in extracting gas from the Krishna-Godavari
basin. — Though Reliance has a 10-year plan for the gas reservoir,
the entire execution and
commercial production is being chalked out in such a manner that it
can commence production in two and a half years.’
    Cost Rs.7000 crores.
    Gas to be produced in 30 months.
    Gas Production to go up to 100 MSCM that is reduced to 20 MSCM.
    Reserves was to last 100 years.
90 Blocks to RIL – When Didn’t Deserve Even a 100 Sq.Mt Block Each.
RIL and GSPC were allowed 25 Blocks and 65 Blocks had no drilling rigs
and had no expertise at all.
RIL changed three ‘10% Partners all Very Small Operators’ in three
years – 1999 – RIL partnered with NIKO, 2000 partnered with HEPI and
2001 with HARDY.
    BP came only recently.
This in itself shows RIL partnered with small time drillers just to
qualify for Acquiring 25 Oil & Gas blocks.
RIL reported discovery of Gas in KG Basin in 2001 end when Dhirubhai
was alive and above Press Release was made after due ‘Confirmation of
Reserves By International Experts.’
RIL 30 Million Tone Refineries – Indian Selling RIL Products.
BJP made another starling ‘Never In The World Before Favor’ directed
to ‘Market RIL Refinery Products Through PSU Gas Stations we call
petrol pump.’
Mukesh Ambani cheated Anil Ambani after the death of Dhirubhai Ambani.
All cash cows were Taken Over By Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani was
left with Power and Telecom sector both ‘Intensely Competitive.’ RIL
is consolation entered in to Contract with Anil Ambani to supply gas
to 10,000MW power plant for about 20 years and with NTPC also both at
$2.34 per mmbtu.
Instead of developing Gas Reserves – RIL preferred another Gas
Refinery for Exports.
It was only in 2006 – five years after RIL concluded Highly Inflated Cost.
Petrobras of Brazil executed P-56 and P-52 blocks at under $1b with
much larger, deeper, more wells and farther from shore blocks but RIL
capitalized over $9b.
‘The main construction contract for P-52 was signed in December 2003
The work commenced in May 2004, and the Platform hull arrived in
Brazil in March 2006, to be integrated to the modules as of July 2006.
The total construction period was 26 months.’
Petrobras $400m for 24 Rigs – RIL 2 Rigs for $400m
‘The package deal included 5-year contracts and has a total of nearly
US$ 2 billion. It is believed to be the largest deal of this kind for
the offshore sector and it has certainly been financially beneficial
for Brazil’s national oil company. — Of the 24 rigs secured by
Petrobras, 17 are semis and 7 are drillships, with their’
When Petrobras hired 24 Rigs for $400m annually RIL hired two most
powerful Rigs at $0.550m per day or $200m each.
‘This was Grand Conspiracy – These to Rigs could reach 14 kilometers’
required to extract Oil & Gas from ONGC and GSPC discoveries.
Estimated Oil Equivalent Production Loss of around 100 million tones
at $100 per barrel is over $60b per year – Crude Oil require Refining
and loss of volume – so the annual loss comes to around $100b that for
6 years for RIL 2006 and 4 years for GSPC is $500b to $700b Economic
Loss to India.
Complaint is pending with CBI for 3 years.
