“I have done enough in the legal profession. Now I want to serve my country to strengthen the democracy. I know I can make a difference.” R K Anand
R K Anand, the man defending Sanjeev Nanda in the BMW case, began his legal career at the Tis Hazari Court in Delhi as a civil Lawyer in the late 1960s.
In 2000 the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha JMM nominated him to the Rajya Sabha from Jharkhand. He also contested on a Congress ticket from South Delhi in the 2004 Lok Sabha polls but lost.
Sting that exposed Anand was in the public interest: SC
Before that in February 2003 he was appointed the AICC observer for the Assembly polls in Himachal Pradesh.
Senior Supreme Court Advocate R.K. Anand was the Congress candidate for the 2004 Lok Sabha elections from South Delhi constituency. He also had high profile clients from the Congress party like former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao and former union minister H.K.L. Bhagat. He was also reportedly close to former external affairs minister Natwar Singh.
AS Anand was, Chairman of NHRC. It is ’Muslim right Commission’. RK Anand, Congress leader, and was accused in 84’s riot. Javed Anand, husband of Teesta is a fanatic supporter of terrorism.
It was said in NDTV sting operation that there was a bargaining between Congress leader and senior advocate R K Anand with the alone witness Kulkarni and the deal was in cores.
Shri RK Anand said that he had been associated with Congress leaders since 1977-78. In 1981 he had been lawyer of Smt. Indira Gandhi and had all kinds of interaction with her when a succession suit had been filed after the death of Shri Sanjay Gandhi. He also appeared as a lawyer for Shri Rajiv Gandhi and since had with other Congress leaders.
Asked if he had joined the JMM only to become a Member of Parliament, Shri RK Anand said that at that time there was only one seat which was available. Only because of the JMM I could not have been elected as JMM had only 13 votes.
How Anand saved accused of 1984 riots
August-September 1990: The Poti-Rosha committee sent two batches of recommendations covering altogether 30 affidavits, including the case against Sajjan Kumar. When a CBI team went to his house to arrest him, Sajjan Kumar and his supporters locked up the officials and detained them till his lawyer, R.K. Anand (now a Congress MP), obtained ?anticipatory bail? from the high court.
While defending accused Congress leaders, Anand once secured anticipatory bail for Kumar in 1990 even after a CBI [Central Bureau of Investigation] team had actually arrested him. Anand could do so because of the bizarre development in which the CBI officials, who arrested Kumar, were locked up in his house by a mob of his supporters.
Save Rao in St Kitts case
He defended Narsimha Rao in in St Kitts case. R.K.Anand, the counsel for Rao reiterated in May 97 that his client had only directed Indian Consulate General at New York to attest the documents in routine manner under instruction from PMO, without knowing that they were forged.
Garib ( R K Anand) ka haath Congress ke saath!!
Not far behind is the Eminent lawyer, RK Anand, defeated Congress candidate from South Delhi by V K Malhotra of BJP, whose movable and immovable properties taken together were estimated to be worth several crores according to his affidavit filed at the time of contesting.
Advocate R KAnand said, “Where is the evidence? Was I on camera giving money to Kulkarni to give a statement in favor of my client? Was I on camera offering money?” Congress and Mayawati can argue the same.
Caught on camera corruption and caught in print media honesty
After the invention of electronic channels in India, leaders think that caught on camera is crime but caught in print media is not a crime. Pradip Gandhi with others caught on camera in taking bribe for asking questions in the parliament, so it became crime but not others if they take or give bribe behind camera. Print media says there is a bargaining between BSP and Congress to give and get support in the coming Presidential Election subject to Taj Corridor Scam of Rs 170 crores. But this is legal.
