While the Spectrum scam tapes have been talked about, what has not received adequate notice so far is the lobbying and controversy surrounding the division of gas between the Ambani brothers. The conversations in this set seemingly include journalists Vir Sanghvi of the Hindustan Times; Prabhu Chawla of the India Today group; and G. Ganapathy Subramaniam and M.K. Venu of the Economic Times...

While we are yet to fully absorb and understand the various intricacies and ramifications of the very many conversations on record, and clearly, there are many serious issues at stake here including those of privacy (who authorised these taps), timing of their made public and on-going corporate wars but it is eerie how casually a discussion, for example, about the battle for power sector involving Tatas and Reliance in Maharashtra segues into instigating the likes of Shiv Sena and other groups like the MNS and how easily corporates play and manoeuvre the "protests" by goon-gangs of political outfits to further their ends.

Also, how easy it seems for these power-brokers to casually fix not just politicians -- e.g. Venkaiah Naidu of the BJP here is mentioned as amenable to persuasion, as against Arun Shourie, for example -- but also, in their narration, the higher judiciary.

Some of the abbreviations:

  • MM: Manoj Modi, Mukesh Ambani's right hand man in Reliance

Discusses the Ambani brothers with Suhel Seth. [Aside: his dog's name is Google because he can find stuff others can't — because he's the one who's hidden it in the first place!] 

Suhel Seth:  One thing only between the two of us… If the older fellow has so much of an influence, how come the younger brother is able to do so much?

Niira Radia: Ya, last time huaa thaa naa Amar Singh ka nuclear deal ke baad… It was limited to the period of three to four months… when they gave support for the nuclear deal. So it was only limited in that period. And after that Amar Singh made sure that he did what he could… and even all ED inquiries against Anil Ambani have started again.

Suhel Seth:  Thank God!

Niira Radia: He has borrowed 10 billion dollars in two years.

Suhel Seth:  But wasn’t there something that apparently he had taken money against some foreign holding or some rubbish like that.

Niira Radia: Basically, he has played according to the sort of figures that have ..brought to us. He has already played around 40 thousand crores in the market and lost it. So he has to pay back and his balance sheet is showing a debt of 75 thousand crores. And unless he can bring in equity, which his brother won’t allow him to bring in because he has got the ROFR [Right Of First Refusal]… he can’t do anything. So he can only fight us in the court and through media, whatever he wants. So he is in a tight corner.

Suhel Seth:  My God, yaar.

Niira Radia: And this gas thing was nothing else… He is basically saying give me money.

Suhel Seth:  But the older fellow should not succumb.

Niira Radia: Nothing at all, he is very sure.

Suhel Seth:  They should really nail him.

Niira Radia: He is going to nail him now because he had enough of him.

Suhel Seth:  And plus he is no one’s friend.

Niira Radia: Ya, he is no one’s friend. You know, Suhail, all industry is on one side and Anil is on one.

Suhel Seth:  Ya, I was speaking at a function on June 30, I think at the HSBC thing, and we were together sitting at the same table. He was bitching… (inaudible).

Niira Radia: Yeah, he is back tomorrow in Delhi.

Suhel Seth:  Who?

Niira Radia: Sunil, no?

Suhel Seth:  Oh Sunil, ok I don’t know.

Niira Radia: He was also saying that he had enough of him. So everyone is on one side including the Tatas. Because Tata is also battling this issue out. And Anil is on one side. So maybe we should all be just together and put this misery to an end.

Suhel Seth:  Misery! I cannot even laugh!

Niira Radia: He is a misery, isn’t he?

Senthil Chengalvarayan of Network 18 discussing apology for Forbes editor Indrajit Gupta's piece on Mukesh Ambani's children. In the July 3 edition of Forbes, the following apology was eventually published:

“In our issue dated June 19, 2009 under the heading Self-Reliance, we published a snippet stating that Isha and Akash, children of Mukesh Ambani, would be accompanied by a mini-entourage of three servants when they proceed to Yale for their undergraduate studies. The same piece went on to state and imply that Isha and Akash had not been admitted on merit but that Mukesh Ambani had, by improper means and use of his influence, secure their admission to Yale.

“We had published the report based on information that we had believed to be reliable.

“We have, however, subsequently ascertained and now recognise that there was no foundation to these allegations and we sincererely regret that they were ever made. We are happy to take the earliest opportunity of correcting our error and expressing to Mukesh Ambani and his children Isha and Akash our regret and embarrassment caused to them by publishing the original snippet.

 “Similarly we also regret any references that were made to Yale University and its officials in the original snippet.”

Both are the same conversation. NR is apparently asking for an article against RLNR petition and that "Rohit" would provide the information and the person she's talking to says he "can't write an article on an issue which is before the Supreme Court" but that he has written an article that would be published under Pratap Narayan's name and that he would pass it on, that he doesn't trust email and he would rather go over to the person's house, that the person stays in Friends Colony.

RadiaGate
A petition before the Supreme Courts shows the rot within. It is not just the 2G Spectrum but the entire Republic of India that seems to be up for sale, with the dealers being a group of powerful telemarketers— corporate houses, lobbyists, bureaucrats and journalists
2G Spectrum Scam
Four transcripts that were submitted to the SC along with audio recordings in May 2009 covering the cabinet formation, DMK politics and who'd get telecom portfolio
2G Spectrum Scam
The conversations with M.Karunanidhi's daughter M. Kanimozhi about keeping Dayanidhi Maran out from negotiations with the Congress and to get the telecom portfolio for A. Raja

In these Radia wants Sanghvi to tell the Congress not to negotiate with Dayanidhi Maran. He tells her that while he has been meeting Rahul and can't "get into Sonia in the short term" he would "try and get through to Ahmed"

Recordings of conversations with the likes of Ratan Tata, Ranjan Bhattacharya, Barkha Dutt, Shankar Aiyar, Sunil Arora etc
