July 1, 2013.

Dr. Manmohan Singh,
Prime Minister of India,
South Block,
New Delhi.

Dear Prime Minister:

            Please refer to my earlier letter to you dated April 18, 2013 regarding the Aircel-Maxis deal and the CBI’s Supreme Court-monitered-investigation into the same.  In my Interlocutory Application No. 36 in the matter, the Supreme Court had directed the CBI to investigate the issues I had raised therein, which included the fraudulent and bogus clearance of the deal by the FIPB allegedly claimed as on March 7, 2006 {when Mr. P. Chidambaram was Finance Minister}.  Hence his role in the matter would automatically come under the scanner of the CBI.
            In this letter I bring to your notice information I have recently received.  A Secret Note No. 51/1/2007-JIC(CS) had been prepared by the Joint Intelligence Committee of your Government based on inputs from all the main central Intelligence agencies submitted.  In  the said Secret Note  it is stated Saudi Arabia’s Saudi Telecom had as far back as 2007 acquired 25% of the Maxis equity by paying $3 billion then.  Recent information I have received from Malaysia reveal that Saudi Telecom will purchase additional equity to raise its share to 35%.  There is also news that France was expecting its telecom company to purchase an additional 20%.  In other words, Maxis would cease to be a Malaysian company.
            Given Saudi Arabia’s Wahabi propensity to finance Islamic fundamentalist forces in India and Bangla Desh, JIC had rightly wondered as far back as 2007 whether it is in India’s national security interests that India should provide access to such a vital area as telecom sector, especially when Saudi Telecom will through Maxis has licences for sensitive circles such in  Northeast India, hit by Islamic infiltration from Bangla Desh.
            What is all the more shocking is that Mr. Chidambaram had failed to call for security clearance for the Aircel Maxis or inform the FIPB of the Saudi Telecom angle but instead fraudulently gave a bogus contrived FIPB clearance to the deal.
            As Prime Minister therefore, you must call for a review of the Aircel Maxis deal immediately and instruct the CBI to investigate the matter.  Otherwise, I shall have to approach the Supreme Court by way of another Interlocutory Application.

                                                                        Yours sincerely,
