It can be difficult for the youths of today to find decent employment opportunities. As a result, many government-funded organizations have been formed to help them gain skills and employment to help them. There is even a category for street workers, who can go to an India sexual rehab NGO to get help, skills, and proper employment.
There have also been a large number of fraud Skill India programs cropping up, one of which is Sabal Bharat Sansthan, NGO in Jaipur. Established in 2016, the founder of this organization is none other than Sunil Gurjar of Nasirabad Congress. Gurjar has a political background, and a past that has been linked to a number of scandals of India. The organization is based in Jaipur, Rajasthan and they offer and conduct exams all over the country.
Sabal Bharat Sansthan claims to offer a youth employment program to help them gain skills, confidence, and to empower them. What many aren’t aware of is that they are a fraud organization of Skill India program. What they offer is the promise of free training programs, employment, and scholarships. They offer candidates a chance to take their Sabal Bharat Exam for a fee, telling them that they are selected for their programs based on their skill levels.
To the poor and unemployed, this seems like a dream come true. But this fake organization plays on the vulnerabilities of these people, drawing them in with the promise of a better future. They collect their money, have them take their test, and they are not heard from again. It’s a sad case of NGO corruption in India.
The organization tries to come across as being part of the government initiative to help empower and employ these vulnerable individuals. By doing so, they negatively affect the efforts and work of legitimate NGOs. Such is the corrupt reality of NGOs in India.
Sunil Gurjar’s Sabal Bharat conducts these exams, where millions of students attend from all over India. Bear in mind that India has a massive amount of unskilled and unemployed laborers. Candidates are required to pay INR 560 upfront to take the exam. That’s about $10.00 USD, which doesn’t seem like a lot. But multiply this by the hundreds of thousands of candidates pulled in from that huge pool of unskilled and unemployed people, and it comes to quite a large amount of money,
The exam is meant to test the skills of each candidate in order to be selected for a specific Sabal Bharat program, of which there are 4; Scholarship, Residential, Employment, and Sports Talent. They claim that, once the exam has been taken, the results will be posted on their website and sent to each individual via text within a months time.
Many find that two or three months will go by and they will still have heard nothing. Many of these candidates will contact Sabal Bharat after having taken the exam and waiting, to get no response from the organization. You can find a number of reviews across Google and Facebook that complain of this. Also, Google “list of fraud NGOs in India”.
Other candidates have reported that their results were declared but the organization never got back to them regarding their promised free training or scholarships. The way Sabal Bharat attracts its candidates is through paid advertising and a team of agents that go into rural areas to prey on the poor and unemployed. They will make claims that they will provide free training and programs to help develop skills in order to find good paying jobs. They then collect the money and make sure the candidates get to the exam.
When you work it out, with 10,000 candidates paying INR 560, they will roughly make about $78,500 USD. 100,000 candidates makes them around $786, 900 USD. Usually the number of students that come to take this exam number in the hundreds of thousands and it is done twice a year! It is the top fraud NGO in India!
It’s easy for people to fall prey to this fraud Skills India program. They present a very professional looking website to start with. They offer impressive programs and syllabus’. They even have logos for Skill India, NSDC, and PMVY on their sites, as well as all of these business and government associates, none of which they are actually affiliated with. The business and government links are part of the scam as well. All are retired bureaucrats with their finger in the same pie.
When you start doing a bit of research the organization starts to look less and less legitimate. If you were to visit their head office in the more posh area of Jaipur, you would see it’s nothing more than a 2 story building with nothing more to it. You would expect a huge and busy office for an organization that is supposedly training hundreds of thousands of students. But all they are doing are collecting exam fees and nothing more. The office is just a front to look professional and legitimate.
It’s one of the top fraud NGOs of India, who are basically scamming money from the poor. Sadly, the government is hand-in-hand with them, with 20 to 30% of the revenue they take going to them. This is how they get away with doing this. Even worse, the founder, Sunil Gurjar, also known as Sunil Gujjar, was involved in a number of high profile political and government scandals in the past few years.
Many have heard of the Bhanwari Devi Murder case. It was a scandal of India in which powerful ministers sexually exploited a midwife from Rajasthan for several years. It was reported that she was carrying the child of one of these ministers as well. In the end, she was murdered, her body burnt, and then unceremoniously dumped in a canal. It was one of the largest political scandals of Rajasthan and Sunil Gurjar, who is the son of a Nasirabad Congress Member of Legislative Assembly, was closely involved. And this is the man who is the founder of an NGO that is focused on helping the unemployed and unskilled students of India?
You can search Google to find a number of reports linked to sex scandals that rocked India and the Rajasthan political scandal that have Sunil Gurjar’s name attached. He was part of a blackmail attempt of Mahipal Maderna, having copies of a sex CD with Maderna and Devi. Devi was murdered because she knew who struck the blackmail deal, who the middleman was, and who had the copies of the CD. Who was the middleman circulating the sex CD in this sex scandal of India? None other than Sunil Gujjar aka Sunil Gurjar. He has a history of extorting, blackmailing, and gaining money through unscrupulous means.
Sadly, because Gujjar has political backing, he seems to be untouchable and allowed to get away with taking money, as well as the hopes and dreams of the poor, unemployed, and vulnerable people of India.
Indira Bishnoi was one of the main people accused in the disappearance and murder of mid-wife Bhanwari Devi. She had been on the run since 2011 and was discovered last June in a shelter in Madhya Pradesh’s Dewas and subsequently arrested. But what exactly was her role in this murder case? First, we need to look at where it all began, with the murder case. The murder case was responsible for destroying the political careers of two influential families in Jodhpur, the Bishnoi family and Maderna family.
Who was Bhanwari Devi?
Bhanwari Devi was a trained nurse and midwife who went missing in 2011 and was then found murdered 4 months later. During her time as a midwife, Devi made several connections with politicians. She soon came to realize that her sex appeal held a power that she could use to over these bureaucrats and politicians to advance herself. She was able to get the best postings in her career, and also helped others to do so for money.
It was noticed how quickly she amassed riches that were far beyond the means of a midwife. Her husband, Amarchand, worked as a vehicle driver and was an alcoholic. She used her riches to buy cars and several houses, as well as ornaments of gold each year. Over time, Devi became overly ambitious. It was in 2013 when she tried to demand a ticket to contest the Bhopalgarhstate elections and was refused that she resorted to blackmail these leaders.
Devi had recorded a video that was over 50 minutes long, showing these leaders with her in very compromising decisions. She demanded money in exchange for the CD. Of these leaders were:
Mahipal Maderna – one of the Rajasthan governments cabinet ministers
Malkhan Singh Bishnoi – a legislator who continued a decade long relationship with Devi.
Malklan Bishnoi was unwilling to believe repeated claims of him being the father to one of her daughters. He refused demands for a paternity test to be done and did not believe her claims of having the CD. Frustrated, Devi leaked part of the CD in August of 2011 to a local newspaper, which printed photos that included Maderna. It was also leaked to a local news channel. It was a few days later that Devi went missing, with her husband claiming that Maderna had ordered her abduction.
The Abduction and Murder
The CBI investigation found that the 36-year-old midwife was abducted from the Bilara area of Jodhpur on the 1st of September, 2011. She was murdered around the same time, with her body being given to a gang to dispose of. The body was burned and then dumped in a canal. It was 4 months later that the CBI found her body.
3 charge sheets have so far been filed by the CBI against 17 people. Of these 17 are Madema, Malkhan Bishnoi, and his sister, Indira Bishnoi, who went into hiding. Ms. Bishnoi is believed to have assisted in planning the murder of Devi with her brother. According to the CBI, Maderna contacted Sahiram Bishnoi, who was his confidante at the time. Sahiram hired a government contractor, Sohan Lal Bishnoi.
A plot was created between criminal Shahabuddin and the Bishnois’ to obtain Devi’s CD by any means possible. This took place before the leak. As part of the plan, Sohan agreed to buy Devi a car and make a payment to her. Devi was lured to Bilara by Sohan to make the last payment for the car, with the agreement that he verify the CD she claimed to have. It was then that she was strangled to death and her body was handed over to the gang for disposal.
Abhishek Manu Singhvi is known widely as being one of Indian National Congress' most important leaders and spokespersons. He is a leading lawyer, the Supreme Court of India's senior advocate, Chairperson of the standing committee on law and justice, and is currently a Member of Parliament of India who represents Rajasthan in the Rajya Sabha. Many will have seen him day in and out on news channels as he criticizes the opposition and supports his policies in Government.
Singhvi began his political career at the age of 37 when he became the youngest man to become part of the Additional Solicitor General of India, in 1997. It was a position he held for a full year. In 2001 he became the National Spokesperson for the INC. Currently, he is a member of the Ministry of External Affairs' Consultative Committee, the Chairman for the Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, a member of the General Purposes Committee, and a Law and Justice Member.
If you look at the news on Singhvi recently, however, you will see that he is going through a very hard time in his political career than he has ever faced before. This all comes down to a sex scandal that Singvi was allegedly involved in back in 2012 when he was caught in his Supreme Court chamber in a very compromising position.
On April 23rd of 2012, a sex video was leaked that involved the Congress leader and another female senior lawyer. News reports stated that the sexual act was in exchange for the promise that Singhvi would help the female lawyer gain a judgeship. This, however, could not be proven at the time.
The video appeared to have been recorded in a Court Chamber room. It was very grainy and not overly explicit. However, there was no doubt about the sexual nature and activity that was being recorded. There was no mention between the two people that referred to an offer of judgeship either.
The video was just over 12 minutes in length and was first uploaded to YouTube the Thursday before, at around 9 pm. Within 20 minutes the video was pulled from the site because it violated the terms of service regarding sexual content and nudity on YouTube. However, a Facebook page was also created that had links to the video, with the suggestion that the person who created the page had more videos with incriminating evidence that would implicate other leading politicians.
Singhvi made many attempts to block the telecast from mainstream media legally. However, it kept cropping up on other sites, had been uploaded to torrent servers and file sharing platforms so that people could download it, and was being posted repeatedly throughout the night. By Monday morning, many sites were streaming the leaked footage as embedded videos, with people posting links on Twitter and mocking Singhvi.
Singhvi's driver at the time, Mukesh Kumar Lal, was the person accused of filming the CD and then using it to blackmail Singhvi, threatening to make it go public. Singhvi has claimed that the video is a forgery, that it was fabricated to hurt his political career. There is, however, the mention of other videos. Should one of these other videos exist, and mentions the promise of a judgeship as believed, it would be more ruinous than a video showing two people having consensual sexual activities.
As a result, Singhvi was forced to resign as Chairman of the Parliamentary standing committee of law and justice, and as Congress spokesperson.
Effects of the Scandal
The fallout from this scandal was a rising star in the party being shut down, his career being ruined. It also has shown that videos such as these, fake or not, will always find a way of getting out on social media, regardless of the efforts being made. The only alternative would be to clamp down on free speech, a move that would have leaders dealing with an even bigger backlash.
The CD can still be found on many torrent sites and could once again be aired on any social media site years on. Singhvi has blamed social media for sensationalism and had stated that it was an organized gang that was involved in the contents of the video being broadcast. The plain fact is, once out on social media, nothing can really stop it.
