politicians and bureaucrats making job requests and that some small favours to government servants are “common courtesies extended by corporate houses” Submitting its counter-affidavit last week in response to a PIL demanding a court-monitored investigation into an alleged unholy nexus of Essar Group with politicians bureaucrats and journalists to promote its business interests the company has said there is no wrongdoing in giving gifts to people in public life or in the civil service since there has been no attempt to obtain undue favour “As far as job requests are concerned in the Indian environment considering the enormous demand for corporate jobs people in office or in public life frequently make requests for getting jobs There is nothing illegal or improper in such requests” stated Essar adding no appointments were made “only based on the recommendations” Share This Article Related Article Defending meetings of MPs and civil servants with its officials “in a democracy” it said the PIL has not been able to corroborate how the company derived any benefit after giving jobs on requests by politicians and bureaucrats and claimed those given employment had prescribed qualifications and were otherwise also eligible for appointments On hospitality like arranging vehicles for private visits by public officials visiting Delhi from another state Essar has said that “these are common courtesies extended by corporate houses and do not impinge the question of propriety much less on legality” Essar’s response will be examined by a bench led by Justice T S Thakur on Thursday The PIL was filed by the Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) after The Indian Express reported in February how a “whistleblower” had decided to go public with Essar Group’s internal company communications — the correspondence are attached to the petition as instances of alleged impropriety Urging the court to either direct the CBI or set up a special investigation team to probe the alleged complicity adversely impacting matters of public policy the CPIL also asked for framing guidelines to regulate relationships of big corporate groups with individuals in positions of power and influence Attached with the PIL a June 2009 inter-office memo has an Essar executive addressing the subject of dealing with what he calls the “phenomenon of job requests” from politicians and bureaucrats The memo asks for keeping 200 jobs for VIP referrals to entertain qualified applicants and maintain a data bank One email dated July 23 2013 picks the most important ones from a list of 60 referrals They include candidates referred by Sriprakash Jaiswal (then coal minister); Digvijaya Singh (Congress general secretary) and Yashbant Narayan Singh Laguri (then Congress MP from Keonjhar in Orissa where an Essar plant is located) Further a December 2012 email stated: “A senior official in Bastar wants an Innova to visit a temple in Gwalior from Delhi If possible please try to meet him in Delhi According to sources he may become Industry secretary” Essar in its affidavit has however said the authenticity of e-mails is “highly questionable”; they are “unverified” “pure hearsay” and relate to “matters of commercial sensitivity” “There is no material to suggest any wrongdoing in the sense of commission of a criminal offence in any of these” the company said It added even if the e-mails were assumed to have emanated from its officials “they may show at the highest questionable business practice that may fall short of highest standards of ethics in governance” and this is not a matter of judicial review much less a basis for directing a criminal investigation Seeking dismissal of the PIL the affidavit said the CPIL’s assertions are based on surmises and conjectures and the NGO has targeted Essar by unleashing a smear campaign against it for a political mileage The company has referred to various reports published by The Indian Express to state that CPIL has acted with passion for publicity While Essar has said there is no ground to order a CBI probe the CBI is still to respond to the court notice For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More

with less than 200 remaining in the wild (Express Photo by: Ashok Chaudhary) Related News Two years ago the Supreme Court ordered Gujarat to relocate some of its Asiatic lions to Madhya Pradesh — it’s yet to do so Now Gujarat finds itself at the wrong end of a similar tug-of-war among BJP-ruled states with Rajasthan refusing to send eggs of the critically endangered Great Indian Bustard (GIB) to Kutch for breeding On October 17 sources said Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje instructed Rajasthan wildlife officials during a state wildlife board meeting that no GIB eggs were to be shared with Gujarat Instead the state forest department has been asked to request the Centre for a breeding and research centre for Rajasthan’s state bird near Jaisalmer in the Desert National Park (DNP) sources added When contacted Rajasthan’s chief wildlife warden R K Tyagi refused to comment on the issue The GIB habitat improvement and conservation breeding programme to be implemented by the Wildlife Institute of India (WII) in collaboration with the Gujarat Rajasthan and Maharashtra forest departments proposes to collect eggs from the wild transport these to Kutch to build a breeding population and subsequently release captive-bred birds The Centre has sanctioned Rs 35 crore for five years under the Compensatory Afforestation Fund Management and Planning Authority (CAMPA) for the project The GIB is critically endangered with less than 200 remaining in the wild mostly in Rajasthan In 2013 Rajasthan launched Project Bustard with limited success The state is in the process of redrawing the DNP boundaries by excluding disturbed areas and adding less crowded pockets suitable for GIB conservation “What is the rationale behind the proposal for sending eggs all the way to Kutch when 90 per cent of the birds are in one area in Rajasthan Why has Gujarat lost almost all its GIBs if conservation efforts have been so efficient there We need to get real or we are looking at extinction of the species in less than 10 years” said renowned bird author Bikram Grewal a member of the Rajasthan wildlife board Noted ornithologist Dr Asad Rahmani however does not see any merit in Rajasthan’s “possessiveness” “Kutch still has good grasslands which can be further protected with the introduction of GIBs If Rajasthan is so keen how did the bird disappear from so many areas in the Thar desert There is pride in saving a species by collaboration not in keeping it to oneself and doing little to protect it” he said WII scientist and the project leader Dr Y V Jhala said the location of the breeding centre should be based on scientific considerations “Being close to the coast the site chosen in Mandvi Kutch provides the ideal moisture temperature and vegetation throughout the year to maximise egg laying in GIB Jaisalmer might not be the optimal location for a breeding centre because it is too dry and hot to ensure productivity” he said Dr S K Khanduri IG (wildlife) Ministry of Environment and Forests remains hopeful “The project requires an agreement between the three states and WII We have not heard from Rajasthan yet not in writing All of us need to work together as time is running out for the GIB” he said According to the Centre’s breeding programme plan once the eggs are transported from Rajasthan and a breeding population is established in Kutch priority will be given to Rajasthan’s DNP areas for the release of captive-bred birds In the next stage conservation areas will be identified in Gujarat and Maharashtra for release while breeding centres will come up in Rajasthan as well “We will collect eggs from the wild instead of catching a few birds because captured GIBs usually do not recover from the shock to breed in captivity So we’ll hatch and rear them in captivity” said an official involved in planning the project “A few of our staff will train in Abu Dhabi where they have successfully bred hundreds of houbara bustards (in cages) Our focus is on rearing the birds in natural enclosures so that they have a better chance of survival in the wild after release” the official said A similar tussle between Gujarat and another BJP-ruled state Madhya Pradesh appeared to have resolved in April 2013 when the Supreme Court ordered relocation of a few lion prides from the Gir forest to the Kuno wildlife sanctuary to ensure that the endangered species is not confined to a single location The Gujarat government filed a curative petition which was dismissed by the Supreme Court last August Two Gujarat NGOs have moved court challenging the relocation order since According to official figures provided by the Gujarat government the number of Asiatic lions rose to 523 in 2015 from 411 in 2010 For all the latest India News download Indian Express App
