Meat unit equity: Company filings show why BJP’s Sangeet Som should quit politics (like he promised)

On Friday, the Hindustan Times reported that Sangeet Singh Som, the Bharatiya Janata Party member of Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly from Sardhana, along with two others, had acquired land for a meat-processing plant in Aligarh. The report said that land for the company Al Dua Food Processing Private Limited was purchased by Som, who happened to be one of its three directors, along with Moinuddin Qureshi and Yogesh Rawat…
…Som, who had visited Bishara village in Dadri tehsil earlier this month and said the UP government was shielding cow killers, responded to the newspaper’s questions and “admitted that he had purchased the land a few years ago but claimed that he was unaware of being appointed as a director of the company”.

And so it started. Som went on to tell the Hindustan Times that as a hindu hardliner, he would never get into such a trade. And that he would quit politics if any link was established between him and the meat co. Well, like this story out today shows, there are links aplenty.
