“Maine kisi ki mukhbari nahin ki, kisi ki chugli nahin ki (I did not inform on anyone. I did not complain against anyone). I was not an informer for the British,” said then Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2004 when confronted with charges of being a British informer during the Quit India Movement in 1942.

The charges came from an 82-year-old freedom fighter Leeladhar Vajpayee, a resident of Gwalior and a neighbour of the Prime Minister in his ancestral town, who along with another freedom fighter was jailed for their involvement in a 42-day non-cooperation movement because of Vajpayee’s deposition to British police. Vajpayee was among the 15 witnesses gathered by the British police on September 1, 1942, against him and the other person. “It is following these depositions that I was convicted of defying prohibitory orders, arson and violence. And I was jailed for five years,” he said.

The Bombay weekly, Blitz (26 January 1974) published a long report showing that Vajpayee “had betrayed his revolutionary colleagues in the 1942 freedom struggle by disclosing their names to the police and apologised his way out of jail”. The report gives details of the whole case and the court proceedings of the time. It also refers to an article of Atal’s brother, Prem Bihari Lal Bajpai, published in Sandesh, the official organ of the Madyhya Pradesh government, dated May 12, 1973 in which he had admitted the arrest of both himself and his brother Atal in connection with the Bateswar case. He also revealed that, on the intervention of Sir Girija Shankar Bajpai, then member of the Viceroy’s Council, both of them were released.

In 1989, a pamphlet titled “How patriotic is Atal Behari Vajpayee who betrayed the ‘Quit India’ movement led by Mahatma Gandhi in 1942” was issued by D.S. Adel in New Delhi on behalf of the All India Freedom Fighters Organisation (AIFFO) which included Vajpayee’s confessional statement given to British police further alleging that Vajpayee’s statement was “a calculated attempt to foul the memory of August 9 and continue his nefarious role which he played in the 1942 Quit India Movement as a British Government Approver when he implicated a number of freedom fighters to save his skin.”

On August 5, 1997, the president and vice-president of the Maharashtra Seva Dal, Chandrakant Dayamahave and Subodh Solanki, raised the issue in an appeal to Prime Minister I.K. Gujral. They asked him not to share a dais with Vajpayee at a function organised on August 9 at Mumbai’s August Kranti Maidan to commemorate the Quit India movement – unless Vajpayee “apologised” for his confessional statement.

Whether Vajpayee was a British spy or not and although these details about his controversial past is common knowledge, there are crucial facts regarding the policies he implemented after becoming the Prime Minister of India that most people are not aware about. We highlight just a few of them below.

From Hijacking Of Indian Airlines Flight 814 to Demonetization

IC 814 was Indian Airlines flight that was hijacked by gunmen shortly after it entered Indian airspace in December of 1999. The aircraft was forced to land in Kandahar, Afghanistan, which at the time was controlled by the Taliban. For those of you who are not aware of the incident remember the Ajay Devgan starrer action thriller Zameen, the movie was based on this incident.

What was not shown in the film however and what is not known to many still is that there was a mystery man on that flight. His name was Roberto Giori and he was the owner of De la Rue who controlled 90% of the world’s currency-printing business. The 50-year-old Giori, who holds dual Swiss and Italian nationality, was one of Switzerland’s richest men. Switzerland sent a special envoy to the airport to deal with the abduction of its Currency King and pressure was put on New Delhi to come to a solution that ensured his safe release.

Two days after the hijack, on Sunday, 26 December, the Swiss Foreign Minister, Mr. Joseph Deiss, had a long telephone conversation with his Indian counterpart, Mr. Jaswant Singh, the Swiss press had reported. The Swiss Government set up a separate cell in the capital Berne to deal with the crisis and had sent special envoy, Mr. Hans Stalder, to Kandahar who regularly reported back to Berne. According to the Repubblica and Corriere Della Sera newspapers, ever since his return to Switzerland by a special plane, Mr. Roberto Giori has been under the protection of the Swiss Government.

But there is a very important missing piece to this story. It is known to many in high circles that a ransom was paid by the Indian Government for the safe release of Roberto Giori. It is believed that Vajpayee sent his very close and trusted intelligence officer, now enjoying a very key post to deliver it. This issue has been voiced not just from political sections but also from Intelligence.

What is more suspicious is that recently when our new Indian currency notes were to be printed after Demonetization the same firm De La Rue was contracted for the job. When we raised the issue everyone from the Finance Ministry to the Reserve Bank of India just flatly denied of having anything to do with this company, nevermind the threats by De La Rue’s legal advisory firm Brunswick to force us into silence. However, all this still doesn’t explain why the Government Security Paper Mill (SPM) in Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh, has filed a recovery suit of Rs 11 crore against De La Rue for supplying substandard paper for printing notes. The more important question is who lifted the ban on this blacklisted company declared in the Parliamentary Committee and intelligence reports as being the source of fake Indian currency notes in collaboration with Pakistan and other countries? We leave this question for our responsible readers to figure out. For further details on the issue refer to our report The Secret World Of Indian Currency Printers.

Defection of RAW Officers to CIA

Rabinder Singh was a joint secretary in the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW), India’s external intelligence agency, who defected to the United States in 2004. When the RAW counterintelligence was going to arrest this traitor and defector, the PMO’s office and the Home Ministry pushed them go slow, and gave him a window of 24 hours to escape to Nepal and from there to the US. Contrary to the standard CIA policy of disowning assets, he was fully assisted in his escape to the US by the CIA, risking an exposure of their role.

Having him under Indian interrogation would have risked far more than mere CIA’s hand being exposed, for he was only a conduit for a much larger flow of information involving countless other individuals. It is openly known that several officers who collaborated with him are still working for the RAW. American reports state that the CIA officials involved were punished for exposing their role. But perhaps again, and more likely, the CIA is not so foolish in exposing themselves after all. It was merely sending a message to other RAW agents: ‘Betray India and work for us — and if there is any trouble – well absolutely don’t worry, both we as well as your own Indian Government will help you!’.

Indeed, even after this infamous episode, more defectors have followed his path. Not only defectors, but countless other RAW and IB agents have settled down in the US “post-retirement”. Is it not true that both Prime Ministers Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh had gone out of their way to protect him? Have not several Prime Ministers in the past exposed critical deep agents of the RAW? Was not our defense minister, Mr. Parikkar, himself forced to admit this?

Agenda 21 in India

Perhaps the most damning of Vajpayee’s achievement is the implementation of Agenda 21 in India.

On Dec. 10, 1974, the U.S. National Security Council under Henry Kissinger completed a classified 200-page study, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study falsely claimed that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) like India was a grave threat to U.S. national security. Adopted as official policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford, NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in those countries including India through birth control, and also, implicitly, war and famine. Brent Scowcroft, who had by then replaced Kissinger as national security adviser, was put in charge of implementing the plan. CIA Director George Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture.

The bogus arguments that Kissinger advanced were not original. One of his major sources was the Royal Commission on Population, which King George VI had created in 1944 “to consider what measures should be taken in the national interest to influence the future trend of population.” The commission found that Britain was gravely threatened by population growth in its colonies – the biggest being India, since “a populous country has decided advantages over a sparsely-populated one for industrial production.” The combined effects of increasing population and industrialization in its colonies, it warned, “might be decisive in its effects on the prestige and influence of the West,” especially effecting “military strength and security.”

NSSM 200 similarly concluded that the United States was threatened by population growth in the former colonial sector. It paid special attention to 13 “key countries” in which the United States had a “special political and strategic interest”: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia. It claimed that population growth in those states was especially worrisome, since it would quickly increase their relative political, economic, and military strength.

This policy, known infamously as ‘Depopulation Policy’ and now being normalised through Hollywood movies, the latest being Mission Impossible: Fallout and most aptly personified by Thanos in Marvel’s Infinity War was imported to India via the United Nations’ Agenda 21 by none other than then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Agenda 21 – An Assessment by- Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India. Foreword by then Prime Minister of India – Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

This 1974 memorandum drafted by Henry Kissinger led directly to the unleashing of experimental vaccines on the unsuspecting public. It sighted countries as targets for “initial population reduction experimentation to be implemented around the year 2000″. They identified India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia & Columbia for study. 3 million Filipinos ages 12-48 were given a test vaccine that ruined their health. North American black & native American women were each given the same vaccine resulting in sterility rates of 25% & 35% respectively. The directive came from the WHO and was directly tied to Kissinger’s report.

Tens of millions of pounds of US and UK aid money has been spent forcibly sterilizing Indian women. Many have died being mistreated, causing outrage from those who suspect Britain simply wants to curb the country’s population for ulterior motives.

Below are just few of the incidents we mention here that are the direct result of the implementation of Agenda 21 in India by Vajpayee. We encourage our readers to probe the matter further.

As Marcus Tullius Cicero said, “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear”Maybe betrayal comes naturally, but history is just. Than again, there is the most crucial case of Kargil War, but that is for another day.
