Gas Scam Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal orders to register FIR against Mukesh Ambani Molly and Deora

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ordered the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to register FIRs against
Union Petroleum minister M Veerappa Moily,
Former petroleum minister Murli Deora
Reliance Industries Limited Chairman Mukesh Ambani

In connection with the gas pricing. 

AK told to media that the gas cartel was responsible for the price rise and it should be investigated thoroughly.
He claimed that he has received a complaint of RIL making windfall gains from the KG Basin deal.

"There is a complaint from 4 senior persons in my government against Reliance. They have complained that Reliance Industries was given gas wells a year ago. It cost less than one dollar, they were given for 17 years at 2.3 dollars but after that they gave it for 4 dollars. They created an artificial shortage and gave just 18 per cent gas. They have alleged that from coming April, they'll double the rate and give it for $ 8 per unit," Kejriwal said.

Delhi Government has jurisdiction to probe the case, Kejriwal alleged that Reliance Industries Ltd was benefited as Oil Ministry decided to hike the natural gas price to USD 8 per million British thermal unit as against current USD 4.2 from April 1.

He alleged that RIL did not produce adequate gas from eastern offshore KG basin block so as to put pressure on the government to hike the price.

He said the complaint alleged "collusion between some Union ministers and Reliance Industries Ltd" that purportedly resulted in the decision to double the gas price from April 1.

"Gas lobby has bribed both the Congress and the opposition parties.
Why are they keeping quiet?"

Kejriwal said that if the gas price is hiked from April 1, the people will suffer and the Reliance will benefit by 54,000 crore per annum.

He also added that the CAG audit shows that 1.25 lakh crores worth benefit accrued to Reliance

He said that he would write to the Prime Minister that till investigation is on, keep the order of gas price hike in suspension.

He mentioned the names of TSR Subramanium, EAS Sharma, Admiral Tahilani and Kamini Jaiswal to substantiate his claims on gas pricing.

In India politicians and Industries work for their own benefits not for the benefits of Indian citizens
