"These are a pack of lies from people who are getting desperate," he tells the Times of India. They want to go after the guy whose voice is being heard. I haven't pocketed a single penny from my association with companies and institutes. All honoraria that I get goes to TERI and to its Light a Billion Lives campaign for reaching solar power to people without electricity. All my dealings are totally above board."
As for the link with the Tata group, Pachauri claims, "Our ties ended when Darbari Seth, who was on our board, died in 1999. We haven't received a single penny from Tatas for years and have no ties with them."
Unfortunately for millionaire businessman Rajendra K Pachauri, Richard then goes on to describe precisely why these statements are a complete load of fucking cobblers. And then he fires another little piece of shrapnel into the mix.
On whether he intends to take legal action against us, Pachauri says he hadn’t made up his mind. "Action against these people only gives dignity to these guys," he adds.
But he dare not. If he chose to sue, we could demand full disclosure of his financial affairs, through the courts. And then the millionaire businessman would have some explaining to do – not least how he is booking his business expenses to the IPCC. And yes, I do have the evidence.
Which would be very interesting to see, of course. Not least because, if Richard is right, millionaire businessman Rajendra K Pachauri might be answering some difficult questions from the US taxman, if no one else.
As such, I think that your humble Devil's reply to millionaire businessman Rajendra K Pachauri has to be the same as Richard's:
Up yours, Pachauri, you are a thief as well as a liar.
Yep: fuck you Pachauri, you thieving liar—go be an MP or something...
