The fact that the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob have infiltrated the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India - by recruiting yet another useful idiot , Mr Kishan Reddy - is just one more piece of damning-evidence proving an overall pattern of major racketeering activity. However, Mr Kishan Reddy has apparently attempted to hide his involvement with 'Amway India Enterprises' by setting up his 'Amway' agency in his wife's name. Indeed, if Mrs Kavya was brought before a judge, it is very probable that she wouldn't have the slightest idea what her husband has got her involved in. It makes me wonder: Who else, within his entourage, Mr Kishan Reddy has been deceiving? and: Who else in the BJP has fallen for the 'Amway/MLM' lie?
For the benefit of your non-Indian readers, the BJP is the second largest political party in India. As Indian political parties go, it is right of centre. The BJP has traditionally advocated Hindu values and Indian nationalism, along with conservative social/economic policies of self-reliance and (in recent years) free-market capitalism. In general terms, the BJP can be compared to the American Republican party.
Thus, if you were a gang of US-based racketeers employing a shifty labyrinth of legally- registered corporate structures to run, and hide, a vast 'MLM business opportunity' fraud around the globe, the perfect democratic political movement to infiltrate in India (by pretending affinity with its elected-leadership) would be the BJP, and this is exactly what the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob have sought to do. After all, like an undiagnosed-cancer, the 'Amway' racket has been steadily gnawing its way into the democratic process for decades in the USA where the 'Amway' bosses have taken the precaution of carrying the Stars and Stripes in one hand and the Bible in the other.
Unless Mr. Kishan Reddy considers fraud and racketeering to be the ultimate form of free-market capitalism, then his involvement with the 'Amway' mob has precious little to do with free-market capitalism, Indian patriotism or traditional Hindu values for that matter. Furthermore, there is an almost-exquisite irony in a leading-member of a democratic, Indian nationalist, political party (born out of the struggle for Indian Independence from foreign rule), becoming the deployable agent of foreign-based racketeers who (like the wealthy British Imperialists of old) have invoked the 'Christian God' as their false justification to exploit millions of Christians and non-Christians alike. In truth, if it wasn't for the catastrophic results of 'MLM business opportunity' fraud for millions of ordinary Indians, and for the Indian economy, then Mr. Kishan Reddy's involvement with it would be a sick joke.
Given the wider evidence, if Mr. Kishan Reddy still believes 'Amway' to be an authentic enterprise, then he is probably too stupid to be held to account. He has already proved quite conclusively that he is not a fit and proper person to represent his BJP electors in Andhra Pradesh, or to hold any form of public office in the Indian republic.
