Mr P. Chidambaram became the Home Affairs Minister in 2008 in Man Mohan Singh’s ministry and remained at this post for three and a half years.
Interestingly, in 2010, the Central Bureau of Investigation arrested BJP leader and Gujarat’s home minister in connection with the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case. Shah was also sent to jail.
However, on October 29, 2010 – Gujarat High Court granted bail to Amit Shah on a bond of Rs one lakh. Nevertheless he was not allowed to enter the state. Furthermore, on December 30, 2014 – A special CBI court in Mumbai discharged Amit Shah from the case.
Interestingly, after the Bharatiya Janata Party was elected to power in 2014, Narendra Modi handpicked Shah as the ruling party’s president and he quickly emerged as the prime minister’s closest political aide. When BJP came to power for a second time in 2019, Amit Shah became the home minister.
Twist of tales:
Mr Chidambaram, who was the finance minister in the UPA government headed by Mr Singh, is being investigated in a corruption case involving foreign funds for television company INX Media. It is alleged Mr Chidambaram had signed off on a huge infusion of foreign funds into the firm as the finance minister in 2007.
The CBI had registered an FIR on May 15, 2017, alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance granted to the INX Media group for receiving Rs 305 crore overseas funds in 2007 during Chidambaram’s tenure as the Finance Minister.
P Chidambaram who was seven time union minister and Congress big-shot was arrested on August 21, following dramatic developments, by the CBI from his Jor Bagh residence. He is currently lodged in Tihar Jail under judicial custody till October 3.
Furthermore, the Delhi High Court on Monday, 30th September rejected the bail application filed by former finance minister P Chidambaram’s bail petition in the INX Media case.
