Alleging that UP chief minister Mayawati has been victimising him, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Monday said he would provide all details of his shares in various companies and dared her to take action against him.
“I will send Mayawati all details of my share-holdings in various companies whether it is Mukesh Ambani’s company, or Infosys, NTPC or ONGC. She can lodge criminal FIRs against all of them in Babupurwa police station (Kanpur),” Singh told reporters.
An FIR had been lodged against Singh, his wife Pankaja and actor Amitabh Bachchan in Babupurwa last week for misappropriation of funds.
Singh said increase in share-capital with mutual consent of different companies and share-holders, and mergers with consent of jurisdiction of High Court concerned was a legal process.
He gave examples of Mukesh Ambani acquiring Rs 15,000 crore worth of shares in his own company and Infosys chief mentor Narayana Murthy withdrawing Rs 200 crore from his company for promoting venture capitalists.
“Is Mayawati above Income Tax department, the union government’s company affairs ministry or the High Court where such a deal is registered?” he asked.
Alleging that the BSP supremo had victimised him in the past as well, Amar Singh said his chemicals factory in Ghaziabad was targeted for power theft though he used generators to run it.
“The then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had said in Parliament that it was Mayawati’s fault,” he said, adding that this made her furious.
Mayawati had lodged 170 cases against SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav in one day after this incident, Singh alleged. “All these cases were later quashed by the courts,” he said.
The Rajya Sabha MP maintained that he had no qualms in saying that business and not politics was his profession.
Raking up the case of allotment of a plot to him allegedly under the Economically Weaker Section category, Singh said the plot was allotted to him by BSP leader Kanshi Ram.
He alleged that Mayawati registered five cases against him in Hazratganj police station here charging him with committing trespass at her home in Ambedkarnagar.
“She alleged that I made a CD of her posing as a living Goddess and asking people to offer her Gangajal,” he said.
