Hi Sucheta,

It is disappointing to learn that you also believe that the foundation is controversial. For last three years, I have donated thousands of hours to sustain the fight and to keep the fight alive, only to hear this from respected members of society. I only have two hands and limited hours and therefore not able to reply to thousand of baseless emails, resulting in some people spreading vindictive rumors. The foundation has always been transparent and foundation’s tax-returns are available at the website. Based on the advice of board members and lawyers, I was told that keeping the website updated with the latest tax returns is all that is required. Therefore, it will not be reasonable to blame the foundation.

Minnie knows how we have worked together for more than one year to come to a stage from where it seems that the documentary will be a reality. I have been working hard to raise funds for the documentary for last one year. We will complete the documentary and will also distribute it worldwide. Once again, these are the same people (who have created obstacles before) raising baseless allegations and yet again trying to thwart a sincere effort. I leave this to you and others what to make out of it.

The foundation is funding the documentary and once again I have distributed the budget via foundation’s yahoogroup and other electronic groups, keeping it transparent. I have also attached it here for those who are “concerned” about the transparency.

As I mentioned before, I am writing this email to make foundation’s stand clear and to stand beside Minnie who has been very brave to come out and help the foundation. Neither I nor Minnie will have time to reply to every individual email.

Regards,

Ashutosh

Hi  everybody

Minnie Vaid is a friend, former hostelmate and colleague. Personally, I think her documentary on Satyendra Dubey  will probably be the only lasting thing to come out of this now controversial foundation.

It is such a pity that Minnie’s efforts — partly at her own cost — have been dragged into the mess. For this I blame those who are in charge of the foundation and have not been very transparent in the past.

It is now upto all of us to ensure that Minnie is able to get the funding (raised from people around the world who were horrified at Satyendra Dubey’s death and humbled by his courage) to complete her film.

We must also ensure that it is widely distributed and seen by everybody who cares for the truth — even if it means getting on to a more non-controversial platform.

I hope Dhananjay takes note of this and makes the effort to respond to Minnie’s email. His changing stance on the controversy over funds does no credit to his brother’s memory. He must come forward now and vouch for what Minnie has said in public and also ensure that her film is out in the public domain in the quickest possible time. If anyone has Dhananjay’s email ID please forward my email to him.

i am the film maker who is making a documentary on satyendra dubey and am appalled that it is being called ” cheap and politically motivated” by people who have not bothered to clarify the matter with me.

let me introduce myself….i am a documentary television journalist with 22 years experience in the print and electronic media….i have worked with the Times of India group, India Today group, Business India group and Star Plus….i have a reputation as a committed and good film maker and would like to preserve the same…..

here are the facts as i know them….

1) i had approached skdf after checking their website on the Net and wrote to ashutosh aman who was listed as the person to contact…..two years ago. I discussed the possibility of doing a documentary with him and also sent him a detailed brief and rough cost of  a 1 hour documentary…..that cost was roughly US 18,000 dollars.

a whole year passed and he told me skdf was not able to generate that amount, following which i submitted a proposal for a half hour documentary , with absolute basic costs, and sent the proposal for Rs 4,05000.

Out of this amount i have received Rs 2,20,000 for the shoot which begins this 23rd Sept…..i hve personally not charged skdf ONE single rupee for the work done by me over 2 years, researching and calling up people in Bihar and Delhi, for the film.

In fact, last year, i attended satyendra”s sister Kusum”s wedding in shahpur, sivan,bihar, and shot a few scenes on my personal handicam,which i will be using in the film also.

I HAVE NOT CHARGED SKDF AT ALL FOR THIS EXPENSE.

2) since i am a journalist of repute, i could have got funding for this film on my own, after approaching shekhar gupta of the Indian Express, whom i know professionally and personally and it would have been much quicker to do so.

But, i wanted the film on skd to start with the words…..” the family and friends of skdubey and the SKDF presents…..” and that is why i ahve been working, without encouragement from anyone and without payment, for the last 2 years, on this project. I hve also refused other lucrative offers of films in the last 4 months so that this film could be completed before the 3rd death anniversary on nov 27.

it is certainly not motivated by any “cheap or political” agenda……i would like to get a reply from those who have alleged this, without checking with me or my credentials.

3) what skdf has done with their funds collected so far and how they have spent or  ” looted” it, is not my concern and i have no knowledge of the same.

i am only and have always been, interested in making a great film on skd since i read the express articles 3 years ago.THAT IS MY ONLY AGENDA and pl note that my fee for the entire project is less than what i will be paying the technicians for this film, and it is a quarter of what i normally charge for direction of a half hour film.

i have not billed skdf for any of the expenses i have personally incurred while researching and doing pre-production of this film….i will post the entire budget break-up of the total amount of the film, ie Rs 4,05000 (four lakhs and five thousand, only) for anyone who is interested.

my mobile no is 98200-71666 and email id is mvaid@vsnl.com.

IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUERIES ABOUT THIS FILM, PL DO ME THE COURTESY OF ASKING ABOUT IT, BEFORE MAKING ALLEGATIONS ABOUT MY FILM OR MY CREDENTIALS.

I HAVE NOT BUILT UP A FLAWLESS REPUTATION OVER 22 YEARS TO HAVE IT QUESTIONED BY PEOPLE OVER THIS  ONE FILM.

pl also check with dhananjay dubey who has been in touch with me over 2 years and who addresses me as Didi, and who has met me personally in mumbai….he will answer all allegations on whether i am ” exploiting the soul ” of his brother satyendra.

i would like a reply to this mail before i leave for the shoot on sept 21.

Dear Sucheta,

You have got the response from Mr. Amman and he has
ignored as ussual all the necessary accountability.

It is unfortunate that Ms. Vaid is getting involved in
this project not that we are against such a
documentary but as long SKDF and its board is involved
and there is still a dark cloud over the Foundation,
she may like to work independtly.

We are quite sure that contributions will come for
such a documentary from all sources but I doubt if 
anyone is interested to send any funds to SKDF
accounts in USA.

The reply to your letter should indicate you that why
anyone should furnish any contributions to a private
held party. The SKDF is not a Tax Free Foundation. Mr.
Amman also have written that SK does not mean
Satyndera and thus therre lies the truth. It is more
or less for personal glory. It is shame that name of
the Martyr had been so badly abused and yet instead of
walking away or giving full details, Foundation is
asking for funds.

Regards
shadi

This letter is the indication of real person who have
done all this for his own glory. Notice the
haughtyness and disrespect for all and everyone.How
could man be so busy on one side to reply anyone and
claim he has spent thousands of hours. Was it done for
the family or the nation, No it was a personal
ego trip and that is why Foundation is a personal and
not public who donated.

For the Filam maker Ms.Vaid our advise is to stay
calear of this personal foundation and donot get your
self with such egocentric person. He has refused to be
accountable and you may endup holding the bag.

Respected Madam,

 

Email ID of Dhananjay is dhananjay1dkd@yahoo.co.in

 

You are aware how Kalyan Panda, misused SKDF to ruin my career and put my family members in trouble. You know what agony my family and me are undergoing in our lives for being working honestly and sincerely.

 

He is trying to gain cheap popularity by using the name of Satyendra Dubey, whereas his attitude towards other whistleblowers is hostile. You are the best judge and may advise Dhanajay and Minnie accordingly.

 

Regards,

VBS

Family Drama Or Tamasha Of SK Dubey Sacrifice

Family Drama Or Tamasha Of SK Dubey Sacrifice 

 

Dear Minnie Vaid,

This is my message to which you have responded.

It will be a biggest shame and disgrace for this country that SK Dubey’s sacrifice and initiative to end corruption in our Civil projects is trivialized.

Since you are a generalist you have access to much more material on SKDF, in some places people refer to SKD as Bhagat Singh of Bihar. IE has over 100 stories on SKD.

Let me explain SKDF was meant to dilute and destroy National Highway Scam. We always suspected for three years that idea of film is “Trivialize & Downgrade” the sacrifice for SKD. SKDF deliberately sabotaged investigations and never wanted to raise real charges made in SKD letter of Nov.11, 2002.

A person of your stature can get bank loan or get funds from creditable sources not ones who even sold SKD “Kaffan”.

Get a copy right of script, if you have a good script you will get funding in crores or colaboration and do a professional job. Don’t involve political agents and dirty people SKDF.

We don’t need Rs.2 lakh or Rs.5 lakh tamasha. Do a serious job.

I am just posting few important lines from SKD letter.

“A dream project of unparalleled importance to the Nation but in reality a great loot of public money because of very poor implementation at every state.”

“But in reality, they are getting most of the work done through numerous small petty contractors (main contractors are supplying only a few critical equipment & materials) at 50-60 per cent of the price quoted by them and the rest 40 per cent of contract price is being pocketed by them without much effort. In the process, the main contractors are working just like commission agents.”

“However, when it comes to the actual execution of works, it is found that most of the works (sometimes even up to 100 per cent) are being sublet or subcontracted to small petty contractors who are not at all capable to execute such big projects and ensure the quality of construction”

“The entire mobilisation advance of 10 per cent of contract value (which goes up to Rs 40 crores in certain cases) has been paid to the contractors within a few weeks of award of work but there has been little follow-up to ensure that they are actually mobilised at site with the same”

“The curriculum vitae of professionals are invariably being fabricated and manipulated by consultants to get approval, as the NHAI officials are not asking for any documentary proof in support of the qualification & experience claimed. Instead they are abetting this crime.”

”The contractors are getting customs and excise duty exemptions on most of the road construction equipment. However, because of laxity on the part of NHAI, the contractors in many cases are buying equipment on behalf of or for other parties and appropriating a portion of the excise/custom duty exemptions in their pocket.”

It is a serious matter so don’t trivialize it.

Killing & Selling Of SK Dubey Body & Soul

Dear Shadi,

Thank you for alerting me to this latest development about continued exploitation of SKD who have not yet accounted for crores in donations already swindled.

It is a shame that IITians had failed to come forward to protect the legacy of SK Dubey who single handedly challenged the “Corruption” and “Loot” in India’s largest public works of national highways.

Like we see in Animal Planet where even lions abandon their dead for vultures to consume, SK Dubey’s body and soul were sold out by human vultures in Kalyan Panda, Atal Bansal and Ashutosh Aman Mishra.

The only testimonial of his great sacrifice for the country that ought to have inspired the coming generations was not even put up on Sham organization SKD Foundation home page, founded to “Cover Up” greatest loot in India.

A letter that ought to be “Bible” to all nationalist organizations in the world has no place in SKDF.

Agents of the cover up operation are active again to further tarnish his image by coming out with “Cheap and Politically Motivated” documentary. The “Loot on Grand Scale” is replaced with his sacrifice “To go back to his roots”.

Consequently we get even 10 to 100 times bigger scams in SEZs.

Madhur Bhandarkar or some reputed filmmaker should take up this important project and make a reality-based film.

Synopsis

A young man graduates from India’s most elite brand, makes a
conscious choice and takes road less traveled. Instead of rushing to
join universities abroad or prestigious companies in India, he decides
to go back to his roots and help build a road.

* A road that is Prime Minister’s dream project. * A road that
is full of hurdles and discomfort, both mental and physical. * A road
that ultimately leads to his own death.

This is the story of Satyendra Dubey, his life and times, his dreams and
disappointments, his murder and the public outrage that followed –
An outrage that still needs to be kept alive for positive activism and
change.

Satyendra Dubey is not dead, there are countless Dubeys scattered over
the length and breadth of India’s villages and small towns, cities
and metros, who dare to tell the truth and face the consequences. They
do this, knowing full well that public support will be rare and public
memory even shorter. And yes, many of them die pursuing this goal,
unsung and forgotten; some at a young age of 31. This film is as much
about and for them, as it is for Satyendra Dubey.

HELP KEEP DUBEYS ALIVE

Contractor mafia not involved in Dubey’s murder: CBI report

http://www.indianexpress.com/story/10407.html

Express News Service

Posted online: Saturday, August 12, 2006 at 0000 hrs

NEW DELHI, AUGUST 11:The CBI has reiterated before the Supreme Court that there is no invlovement of any contractor mafia in the murder of NHAI engineer Satyendra Kumar Dubey. Instead, investigations had established that Larsen and Toubro, which was the main contractor for the road works, had violated contract conditions in sub-letting the work, it said.

‘‘During the investigation of Satyendra Kumar Dubey’s murder case, involvement of any contractor/mafia was not found. Investigations named four accused — Mantu Kumar, Udai Kumar, Pinku Ravidas and Shravan Kumar, all residents of Katari village in Gaya, Bihar. They were arrested and the CBI also recovered Dubey’s personal belongings and the weapon used in the crime on the disclosure statements of the accused,’’ the status report filed by CBI in court said.The report has been filed in response to a PIL seeking an independent Supreme Court-monitored probe into the murder.‘‘Accused Shravan Kumar gave full and voluntary disclosure about the incident and he has been made an approver and given pardon by the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Gaya,’’ the report said.

The agency, however, claimed that it had found to be correct charges of sub-contracting as mentioned in the letter of Dubey to the PMO.

It said a case had been registered against S.K. Soni, former project director of NHAI, Koderma, and others on allegation of criminal misconduct for causing undue pecuniary advantage for the contractor, who sub-contracted the road construction work to unapproved and incompetent agencies against contract provisions.

Meanwhile, petitioner — Parivartan, an NGO — today opposed the report and said there was a total lack of progress in the probe and apparent lack of will to unearth the truth.

‘‘The CBI has deliberately let off the rickshaw-puller who was the sole independent eyewitness to the crime,’’ the NGO said in an affidavit. ‘‘CBI has concluded this was a robbery, when it has been clearly stated by the local police that robbery-related murders are almost nil in that region… The CBI has also ignored the statement by the SP that the evidences indicate very clearly that this was not a robbery,’’ it added.

Where is JUSTICE for martyr SKD ? Are all PROMISES ? Including one by BROTHER DKD ?

What happened to Brother DKD ? WAS he SILENCED from SKDF USA by paying USA Dollars?

What happened to TWO Directors of SKDF USA, Who have used the CONTRIBUTED FUNDS ?

What happened to the PROMISES of Atal Bansal to find KILLERS of martyr SKD ?

What happened to Atal Bansal’s STATEMENT that SKDF USA will FUND to find the KILLERS and to get JUSTICE for martyr SKD ?

Satyendra Dubey’s Murder – Comments INDIAN EXPRESS Dec 2003

 

 

Dubey stink: Govt’s own report shows something rotten
The Government’s stand on Satyendra Dubey’s complaint to the Prime Minister isn’t known yet—except for Union Minister B C Khanduri’s comment to this newspaper that he ‘‘can’t recall the letter.’’

SATYENDRA DUBEY’S MURDER

  THE NEWS OF SATYENDRA DUBEY’S MURDER WAS SHOCKING AND LIKE HAVING BEEN GIVEN SLOW POISON TO MY INDIAN SOUL . RESPONSIBLE CRIMINALS AND CORRUPT POLITICIANS MUST BROUGHT TO JUSTICE BUT PERMANENT AND LONG TERM SOLUTION WOULD BE THE REQUIREMENT MINIMUM OF A COLLEGE DEGREE FOR EVERY POLITICIAN RUNNING FOR ELECTION AND MUST DECLARE THEIR PERSONAL WEALTH, HOW IT WAS ACQUIRED AND SOURCE OF CURRENT INCOME SO VOTERS CAN ELECT CORRECT PERSON.

Dubay’s Murder
  I am deeply shocked to hear about this nefariuos act commited by the most corrupted ani-social elements. At the same time it does not surprise me to know that this happend in Bihar, the most blemished state of our country, run by the scums of our society on top of which the name Laloo Yadav features. That state should be under president’s rule and a millitayr like admistration should be incorporated. We should all demand a quick and fair justice to Late Mr Dubay’s family and give all the criminal in this case the most severe punishment allowed by law.

no more dubey’s to die
  Politicians only listen to one thing.Politics,publicity & votes whoever it is.So raise this issue in each of the electorate with each of the politicians.Make calls to your local MPs/MLAs and ask them if they will raise this issue tommorow in parliament or assembly every day.When ever you find someone involved in politics ask them this question “what happened to Dubey’s case,will it be left like gujarat riot cases or there will be any progress”. If vajpayee wants election if sonia wants power then they will have to answer this question.It is only going to cost us Re1 per day but it will cost us millions if this crimes dont get stopped.

Hon’ble Prime Minister,
  I wish to share the deep hurt, anguish and grief of Mr Dubey’s family and fellow country men. We not only lost one from the cream of Indian brains in Mr Dubey, we also lost a rare blend of honesty, inteligence and integrity. His life laid while giving shape to your dream (which we share) of the golden quadrilateral. All because of the calous attitude of your esteemed office!! You are one of the very few national leaders who is loved even by the opposition, by people who dont believe in your ideologies and who dont elect your party to power. The damage done cannot be undone. But, the least that is expected is an expression of solidarity and conviction to the cause some one as brilliant as Mr Dubey had to prove in his death. And your high office is dissapointing to the point of loss of credibility. You promote people like Judeo and do nothing in this case such is the irony of Indian democracy. The God’s are too busy fighting among themselves, people in power are fighting to stay in power or topple each other and the vast majority of us Indians left to marvel at “Mera Bharat Mahaan”. Please wake up Mr PM and look at citizens of your “Ram Rajya” stripped of pride and dignity.

Indian Express don’t let us Indians forget this incident.
  A true martyr, Satyendra Dubey upheld and fought for the vision of his and his peers, a vision for an honest and strong India. Now its on us to continue this fight and see its fair end. This money-minting GQ Project must be built as per the highest engineering standards and the people doing this must be protected and supported by everyone. Politicians wake up before you are swept off in this tide. Jai Hind!

Good job Express!
  Indian Express seems to be the only paper that is taking a lead role in exposing corruption . Good job! I hope that the Prime Minister himself takes note of this crime and initiates action to punish the culprits.

Posted by: pramodh, 04-12-2003 at 0025 hours IST

Culprits should be severely Punished.
  I feel every citizen of India should feel sorry for the loss of Dubey’s family ,and put pressure on the higher autorities to punish and prosecute the muderer’s behind Dubey’s death. I wish we all should stand as one and fight for justice.

Dubey stink: Govt’s own report shows something rotten
  Because irresponsible behaviour started from PMO office to leak the letter, Can the FIRST CITIZEN, Mr President lead the people by Suing PMO Office in SC.

Slaughter the corrupt rouges
  I can’t really believe that these corrupt rouges are really born to mothers who would have carried them for more than nine months? Shame on you PM, unless you also belong to the same category. New slaughter houses should be built for this corrupt category (even the animals feel ashamed if these scoundrels are slaughtered with them). Only then India can be called a developed nation.

Dubey stink: Govt’s own report shows something rotten
  With the current Proxy Govt. of Laloo prasad it is foolish to expect anything to happen.The culture in the country to silence those who stand up to curruption and injustice. Recent comment about a Police officer who talks about Politics and criminal nexus is another example of this. Even Govt. at center seemed to be careless about corruption in the country. I am sure this will take some attention once the politicians find that many people are concerned and there could be some publicity for them. These guys are least concerned for loss of life and country losing a intelligent person with integrity which is rare commodity amongst them selves.

its a shame…..
  its a shame what ever is happenin in our country….again and again its being proved that in our nation there is no place for honesty and a feeling for the betterment of our nation.and any person who wishes to take a step forward to improvement…..is so brutally supressed that every person who thinks of doing something right will think a thousand times……..such a situation usually is given as an example for doing things wrongly…….lookin at the way things are progressing from bad to worse the picture of india a few years from now is bizzare…..god bless us and every other individual who steps forward for the betterment of the nation we are living in and preventing it from turning in to living hell!!!

PMO irresponsible
  I am deeply hurt by the irresponsible behaviour of PMO. Take action. No letters please. India cannot improve till this is gone. Remember we are in the 125th position. Even srilanka is before us.

NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 2: The Government’s stand on Satyendra Dubey’s complaint to the Prime Minister isn’t known yet—except for Union Minister B C Khanduri’s comment to this newspaper that he ‘‘can’t recall the letter.’’ But the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways’ half-yearly progress report on the Golden Quadrilateral makes one thing clear: the stretch Dubey was working on has one of the worst track records in the nation. Progress on the 60-km stretch between Aurangabad and Barachatti in Bihar was a mere 4.04% in nearly nine months after Dubey’s complaint letter was passed from the PMO to the Ministry to the National Highway Authority of India.

The progress on the World Bank-funded section as on January 30 this year was just 5.86% compared to the target of 18.76%

By September 30, the stretch could progress to only 9.90% as against the targeted 38%.

These figures are among the lowest and are abysmal when compared to progress in a 110-km stretch in Andhra Pradesh. The Nellore-Tada section achieved 93.67% progress as against the target of 92.51% as on September 30.

The tardy progress on the Aurangabad-Barachatti section also meant slow disbursal of funds by the project officer. As against Rs 105.8 crore that was sanctioned for disbursal between April 2003 and March 2004, a meagre Rs 17.77 crore was paid in the first six months.

The situation was no different in the previous fiscal year. As against the sanctioned amount of Rs 71.05 crore, the money disbursed for the whole year was Rs 32.42 crore.

At no place does the Ministry’s report give any reasons for the slow progress.

Very intersting article by Dhananjay K Dubey who is himself involved with the “corrupt SKDF” “Ashutosh Aman Mishra” Kalyan Panda” and “Atal Bansal” NOW ?

WHY DHANANJAY DUBEY supporting Corrupt SKDF, Ashutosh Aman Mishra, Kalyan Panda and Atal Bansal ?

Is the PROMOISE of MONEY from the DOCUMENTARY FILM to DHANANJAY has made him to support the CORRUPTNESS of SKDF USA ?  Dhananjay's Brother martyr SKD gave his life for the NATION for the reason to stop CORRUPTION in INDIA.

Even inspite of ASHUTOSH AMAN MISHRA wrote to Sucheta Dalal that SKDF USA belongs to him and it is nothing to do with martyr SKD, DHANANJAY is supporting CORRUPTNESS and CROOKEDNESS of ASHUTOSH AMAN MISHRA and SKDF USA.

DHANANJAY, brother of martyr SKD can't fill in the shoes of martyr SKD at all, the way he is supporting CORRUPT SKDF !!

DHANANJAY's brother martyr SKD gave his life for PRINCIPLES !! Now DHANANJAY does not worry about PRINCIPLES at all the way he is supporting CORRUPT SKDF and ASHUTOSH AMAN MISHRA, because of MONETARY PROMISES and DOCUMENTARY FILM made by SKDF USA to DHANANJAY.
