Quotes

"We purchased a hand-held formaldehyde meter and did some very basic testing of insulation packs that had come in from China and found very high levels of formaldehyde" he said
Baru saw it as a hostile act: "Pulok, who was inducted into the Manmohan Singh PMO at the behest of Sonia Gandhi, had regular, almost daily, meetings with Sonia at which he was said to brief her on the key policy issues of the day and seek her instructions on important files to be cleared by the PM. Indeed, Pulok was the single most important point of regular contact between the PM and Sonia. He was also the PMO's main point of contact with the National Advisory Council (NAC), a high-profile advisory body chaired by Sonia Gandhi,with social activists as members. It was sometimes dubbed the Shadow Cabinet."
"There is no connection to the White House," she said. "What we are trying to do is hold in contempt a mid-level bureaucrat, and the actions of this committee won't stand upup to judicial scrutiny."
Commissioner Ian Hanger QC said: "Mr Kimber there is some concern about some of the evidence you're giving as to whether it's reliable or not."
