They must have asked the “ambassador in a key Western country” knowing well enough that that guy would definitely refuse.
Like state governors, each ambassador is legally allocated a slush fund that can be spent in any which way the ambassador wants.
The Chief Information Commissioner, the guy who heads the outfit dealing with Freedom of Information requests, is a former Intelligence Bureau official. He was of course appointed by Manmole Singh. The IB official would not have taken up the position if he were not sure that he was acceptable to Modi. That shows you how hand-in-glove BJP is with Congress.
The RBI governor is the son of a former IB deputy head. Economic hitmen, traitors, and moles are all over our government.
