One knows Mayawati is corrupt and of the extreme kinds, but this news article gives a good overview of the way the corruption is organized.
Look at how Indiana Air Pvt Ltd had gotten such open ended licenses and is using a web of companies to launder monies.
Opposition party BJP has stated that Anand Kumar, the brother of UP Chief Minister Mayawati happens to be the owner of Indiana Air Pvt Ltd, a private airline company. The matter was revealed by Kirit Somaiya, Convenor of BJP’s Scam Expose Committee. He stated that he has ample proof and documentary evidence to nail him. Somaiya has demanded for a high level investigation into the matter.
Indiana Air Pvt Ltd has been described as an aviation firm that has ample scope for carrying out business internationally, having the entitlement for running different types of air transport services. This includes chartered services along with ‘any other trade or business to facilitate or is auxiliary to or is associated with that business’. The nature of business includes ‘buying, selling, hiring, repair or manufacturing of aircraft’.
Somaiya has stated that the airlines company is ‘directly linked to a web of companies owned by Anand Kumar and his wife Vichitra Lata, whose only child is known to be very close to Mayawati’. Referring to the matter as a litigation of ‘money laundering’ with ‘loot from the state exchequer’, Somaiya has alleged, “”The aviation firm is a part of Anand Kumar group of companies, which include a consortium of some 300 fake firms. Obviously, this is a fit case of money laundering. After all, who does all the money belong to? I am sure it is money looted from the state exchequer of Uttar Pradesh.”
