Strong Centre, strong states
The recent Assembly elections have been an earth-shaking political event.
Mandalisation lost ground in Uttar Pradesh to development, as it did in Bihar last year. The Bihar election saw the eclipse of one national party and the Uttar Pradesh election the virtual annihilation of both national parties.
The regional parties in Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, are now very strong. The regional parties have been repeatedly humiliating the government at the Centre, enfeebled by mega corruptions and trying to stick to power at all costs.
Whether over petrol price hike, FDI issue, Teesta waters, Lokpal Bill, the Railway Budget, or now the UN resolution on Sri Lanka, the Centre has had to eat the humble pie. Coalition dharma is now blatant survival dharma. The UPA is on life support and can brazen it out till 2014 or collapse earlier, when life support is withdrawn.
The longer this lame duck government lasts, the greater the harm to governance and the grand old party itself. Chances of it returning to power will also become much less. The Congress needs to reinvent itself as an Opposition to restore its health and come back to power after five years or even earlier, if the successor government fails to hold together. Indira Gandhi, after a stunning rout in 1977, came back to power in three years with a resounding victory.
There have been two recent incidents in the theatre of the absurd. First, former railway minister Dinesh Trivedi presented the Railway Budget approved by the Cabinet, which the Prime Minister and the finance minister publicly lauded but which Mamata Banerjee disapproved. She forced his resignation; a new railway minister was appointed and partial rollback made.
Second, the finance minister presented a lacklustre Union Budget while his minister of state from an alliance partner was not present in Parliament. He was supervising an Assembly byelection for his party.
Our Constitution has both unitary and federal features. Given our history of the past millennium, we need both a strong Centre and strong states. A strong Centre and weak states can degenerate into dictatorship, a taste of which we had during the Emergency. A weak Centre and strong states can lead to national disintegration. The Uttar Pradesh election has shown our two national parties in total disarray. While struggling for the third place, 60 per cent of the candidates of these parties lost their security deposit. And while one party is facing revolt in Uttarakhand and by-poll defeat in Andhra Pradesh, the other is trying to cope with blackmail in Karnataka and a by-poll defeat in its Gujarat citadel.
The Oracle of Delphi was asked as to what could destroy Sparta. It replied, luxury. If today the Oracle is asked what can destroy India’s two national parties, the reply will be sycophancy for the Congress and squabbles for the BJP. Our national interest demands that both these parties become strong. It is still not too late for them to reinvent themselves.
Sycophants have destroyed empires and emperors. The slogan of the Congress Party has changed from “Indira is India and India is Indira” to “dynasty is democracy and democracy is dynasty”.
A mortal blow was delivered to the dynasty in its family citadels of Amethi and Rae Bareily, with the loss of 10 out of 12 Assembly seats. Initially, Rahul Gandhi did well in refusing to be parachuted to the top, like his father in the special circumstances of 1984. The sycophants and the fawning media started projecting him as a youth icon and a messiah of the Indian nation. He rightly preferred to build the party before succeeding to his inheritance in government. He was misled by the army of sycophants.
He played the role of a benevolent prince showing concern for the poor and repeatedly harking back to his great ancestry. He was surrounded by smart, well-educated youth who are sons of old loyalists, but out of sync with the masses. He failed to develop ground-level party organisation, relying on abject appeasement policy. No doubt he worked extremely hard, but that was of no avail.
After the poll debacle the sycophants owned up responsibility to shield the heir apparent. The Congress observer in Manipur stated that the Congress had won a sweeping victory there due to the leadership of Rahulji, even though he never once visited that state during the election.
Rahul did well to discard the shield being provided by his sycophants and owned up full responsibility for the debacle. He needs to build his party from the ground level, discarding his sycophants and developing a mass base. A spell in Opposition will be good for his party’s and his own political health.
From a party with a difference, the BJP is now a party beset by differences. There are several capable leaders in the party who are prime ministerial material. However, quite a few BJP leaders are pulling in different directions. The BJP has two mass leaders with a national support base in the country. They are L.K. Advani and Narendra Modi.
The former was the architect of the BJP’s astounding progress from a mere two seats in Parliament to the single-largest party in the Lok Sabha in 1998, with close to 200 seats. Today, his long experience of public life, impeccable integrity, no filial nepotism in politics and physical ability at his advanced age are unmatched in the country. His detractors for their vested interests make heavy weather of his age. They ignore that at his age, Morarji Desai was Prime Minister and Prakash Singh Badal is chief minister of Punjab.
M. Kaurnanidhi is over three years older than him. An NRI millionaire in his 30s, who is an upstart and interloper in politics, had arranged to go to Rajya Sabha with the BJP’s support. He had the arrogance and audacity to suggest that older BJP leaders, particularly Mr Advani, should retire from the party.
Mr Modi has proved himself to be a brilliant administrator who has brought about miraculous development in Gujarat, appreciated not only within the country but also internationally.
He has been persistently demonised by the media, the so-called secularists and, of course, the minority. This hampers support for him from many. This can only be overcome after the law courts give him a clear chit in the ongoing cases against him. Unless the BJP chooses to put faith in one leader and all rally behind him, it has a bleak future.
A Third Front without a common positive ideology will not hold together. National interest may get overlooked by regional considerations, as happened over Teesta waters and over the Sri Lankan resolution. Regional parties may be very strong in their states but have hardly any presence outside.
The foray of Janata Dal (United) and Trinamul Congress outside their respective states in recent elections drew a blank. India can do without short-term Prime Ministers like V.P. Singh, Chandrashekhar, Deve Gowda and I.K. Gujral.
The need of the hour is both a strong Centre and strong states. The former requires a strong ruling party and a strong Opposition, and the latter no encroachment on state autonomy, as formulated in the Constitution. India is a nation of all Indians and not a nation of states.
After all Bharatiya Majdoor Sangha (BMS) win the NALCO labour union election, 2012. It is a great achivement for BMS. After 12 years BMS capture NALCO by his reputed commander
It may be noted, every three year, polls are conducted among the Nalco workers to choose the recognized union to negotiate with the management on various worker related issues.
There are ten trade unions in the race this time in both smelter and power plants. The polls will be conducted on November 14. A total of 3506 Nalco workers, 2492 engaged in the smelter plant and 1014 from the power plant will exercise their franchise this year. In last poll, the Hind Majdoor Sabha (HMS) affiliated Nalco progressive Employees Union (NEPU) was elected as the recognized union for the smelter unit.
Actually local leader Subash Sahoo create a history in election. His strong personality and determination give him victory to make a example for future generation.His ill health can’t stop hard work for organization. He fully devoted his personality to reach the goal.
The Madras High Court has stated that the Church of South India is a company and is liable to submit its accounts for inspection to the Registrar of Companies. The CSI had registered itself as a company under the Companies Act, in 1947- 1948. The order to this effect was passed recently by Justice S Rajeswaran, following a complaint lodged by John S Durai, a CSI member. The petitioner alleged that CSI was misusing the funds under foreign exchange account. The writ petition filed by Durai sought for a directive to scrutinize CSI accounts.
Justice Rajeswaran said that the CSI was indeed a registered company. He said, “Only after getting clearance from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs the impugned action has been taken under the provision of law…The contention of the CSI counsel is of no merits and the proceedings cannot be questioned at all by the CSI Trust Association.”
Following the petition filed by Durai, Madras High Court directed the RoC to follow up on the matter, wherein a preliminary probe was carried out. The investigation confirmed the allegations made by the petitioner. The RoC was also granted permission from the Central Ministry for conducting a detailed probe into the financial matters of the CSI, under Section 209A of the Companies Act.
A showcause notice was also filed against the CSI Trust Association on 30 August, 2011, stating the commencement of an inspection on 12 September, 2011. The notice also stated that CSI authorities should keep their account books ready. However, the CSI authorities sought an extension of the audit exercise by a week’s time on 19 September, 2011.
However, the CSI moved to High Court against the showcause notice, seeking an extension from the RoC and subsequently questioning the registrar’s powers in inspecting their matters. But the matter was pursued by Durai who informed the HC that CSI was a “habitual defaulter in filing the statutory returns in time, and also not in the habit of replying to the genuine queries raised by the registrar regarding complaints received against the CSI”.
New Delhi, March 29, 2012
In 12th Planning Commission of Union Govt recommendations, it was proposed that the ban on Gou Maans (Beef) Exports be lifted. Right now there has been a ban on both imports & exports of Gou Maans. Gou Maans Exports encouragement by the Union Govt would have surely got more & more Cows butchered. Sadhu-Sants, VHP, other Hindu Organizations & Hindus in Bharat opposed it totally. In VHP’s nation-wide campaign the demand was made not to allow such a brutal proposal to go through. Govt has issued a press note on March 16, 2012 that there would not be Gou Maans – Beef – exports.
This has become a habit of the Govt to make decisions hurting Hindus & only when Hindus take to streets, to withdraw them. From Rameshwaram Ram Sethu to Amarnath & from Law against superstition in Maharashtra – there are many such examples. Instead of keeping on hurting the majority to appease minority, Union Govt & all state Govts must care for majority sentiments & well-being for the betterment of Bharat.
Therefore, we demand that the Union Govt passes the bill of the law banning Gou Hatya (Cow Slaughter) TOTALLY. The final draft for this Bill is getting ready & we will be sending it to the Union Govt in a short while to be passed in a specific time line. Those who are interested in suggesting significant points can send their suggestions to email@example.com
We also demand that the states that yet do not have law against cow slaughter, must pass the law immediately. The states those have the law must implement it strictly as despite the law, in many states cows are still being captured illegally, transported in trucks & butchered. Gou Rakshaks who try to stop the trucks or stop cows being butchered are sent to jail and even killed but the butchers are not punished! We demand that no cow / cow progeny be killed in Bharat anywhere by anyone.

The alleged terror module busted by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) in Aurangabad on Monday was apparently planning to assassinate some ‘Hindu leaders’ in Maharashtra, ATS sources said on Tuesday. While two members of the module were arrested and a third killed in an encounter in Aurangabad on Monday, the ATS arrested two other alleged members of the group from Chikli in Buldhana district early on Tuesday.
The two have been identified as Aqeel Khilji (45), who was allegedly SIMI’s chief in Madhya Pradesh, and Mohammed Zaffar Hussain Qureshi (32). The police have recovered a 7.65 mm pistol, five live rounds, a pen drive and jehadi literature from them. Cops have identified two bank accounts operated by Khilji.
The ATS had arrested Mohammed Abrar Babu Khan alias Abrar Shaikh, a wanted accused in the 2008 Ahmedabad serial blasts. While another member, Khalil Qureshi, was killed, a third, Mohammed Shakir, was injured and taken into custody.
“Besides attempting to set up bases in Aurangabad, Jalna and Buldhana and recruit people in the state, they were planning to assassinate some prominent Hindu leaders in Maharashtra. These leaders could be from the BJP, VHP or RSS. However, they have not divulged any names yet,” said an ATS source. Investigators suspect that the module could have targeted foreigners in Aurangabad for ransom. “The ransom would be used to finance terror activities. This method has been used by the Indian Mujahideen (IM).”
“Besides attempting to set up base in Maharashtra, they were also trying to recruit people. We have a fair idea of their network in the state, but with interrogation, we will be able to confirm our information. This group is clearly affiliated to the Indian Mujahideen,” said Additional Director General of Police (ATS) Rakesh Maria.
“After the arrests of Abu Faisal and Safdar Nagori in MP, Khilji was looking after SIMI’s activities in the state. He became the SIMI chief in MP. There are eight offences registered against Khilji. Five cases are under the UAPA, which include two attempted murders, and the other three are regular IPC cases. Qureshi is wanted in two offences in MP,” said Maria. Khilji, Mohammed Abrar and Abu Faisal were allegedly in touch with IM operatives Abdus Subhan Qureshi alias Tauqeer and Qayamuddin Kapadia. “In fact, when Tauqeer fled from his home in Mumbai in 2008, Abu Faisal and Aqeel sheltered him for three-four months,” said Maria.
GUWAHATI: To upgrade the khariji (private) madrassas in different parts of the Assam, state education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma distributed Rs 3 lakh each to 640 different khariji (private) madrassas at a ceremonial distribution ceremony held at the Guwahati Municipal Corporation ( GMC) auditorium on Tuesday.
The state government will provide financial assistance to around 700 khariji madrassas in the state under chief minister’s special scheme.
Each madrassas are supposed to get 5 lakhs in total, out of which, Rs 3 lakhs each has already been distributed to about 21 madrassas in six districts, Jorhat, Karbi Anglong, Morigaon, Kamrup, Sonitpur and Darrang.
Himanta said, “Education has been given the highest priority in every religion, but mere religious education is not enough. Besides this, the students have to keep up with the changing times. If we can introduce vocational courses in madrassas, it would really benefit the students.”
He added, “This is the first time that the khariji (private) madrassas are being provided government assistance. It is sad to know that most of the private madrassas are running purely on charity money. The government has formed a core committee to upgrade these madrassas.”
Forest minister Rockybul Hussain, who was also present, said, “It is important to introduce modern subjects like English and Computer Science in the madrassas.”
