n an explosive exclusive, the BJP has claimed that the reason they did not act upon former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan’s list of high-profile fraud cases sent to the Prime Minister’s Office, was because his email had landed in their junk mail folder. This was revealed after a high-level investigation was launched into the matter. Rajan had earlier said that he was surprised that the report did not garner any response despite mentioning “URGENT” in the subject line.  

It must be noted that the BJP’s alacrity in the matter is highly appreciated, if unusual. Sources tell us the former governor’s accusations came “late in the evening,” i.e. post 5 pm, when the bureaucrats had already left for the day.

It threw up the shocking revelation that Rajan’s email never actually reached the PMO’s official inbox. However, it landed in the junk mail, just like the news on the decriminalisation of Sec 377. “How do you expect the PMO to react to a piece of information it has not even received,” asked a BJP leader.
