"If anybody from USA or any country wants a venture or invest in India I am the ideal person for them. Projects worth Rs 10,000 crores sanctioned by government are with me. Are you getting my point????" Rege wrote in an email to Headley on May 19, 2008, according to a copy of the email produced in the court by federal prosecutors.
Rege went ahead to lure Headley to get him big contacts in India because of his strong political connections.
"As you know that I am politically and socially very well connected here in Bombay (Mumbai), Gujarat and Delhi. Delhi is the place here central government of India (Prime Minister India) rules. I have very strong personal relations with people ruling Mumbai (Maharashtra), Gujarat and Delhi," he wrote.
"There are lots of projects in thousands of crores (Indian rupees) regarding constructions, dams, canals, power, medicine, education etc lined up," he wrote.
The email refers to some detailed conversation between Headley and Rege about their joint future projects.
"If we recollect about our plans that I need to come there and give presentations and conferences with people there and generate funds. Please make a detail project report so that we can start our work on it gives business to you as well as to me," Rege wrote.
