138 surgeries in 4 hrs, Cong for sacking of Health Minister

Raipur, September 28, 2012

Congress on Friday demanded from government to sack Health Minister Amar Agrawal pointing that his department was playing with the health of women as had recently happened in Daundilohara (Balod) where 138 tubectomy operations were conducted in four hours by one doctor in a government health camp.

“First the uterus removal incident happened in government health camps and now its tubectomy case. The government is treating poor people as cattle. All the major incidents are happening in Agrawal’s department, hence he is responsible for all wrongdoings and must be sacked,” said Congress spokesperson Mahendra Chhabda.

He said despite clear instructions from Government of India that not more than 20 operations should be conducted in one day and the state government too fixing limit of surgeries up to 25 maximum in a day, the doctors seemed least bothered about health of the patients.

He said the doctor did 138 operations in four hours because the government had given target of 6000 tubectomy surgeries under its population control fortnight. “Certainly, along with the doctors, the government too is responsible for risking lives of patients in health camps,” he said.

Raipur, September 28, 2012

AICC general secretary and state Congress incharge BK Hariprasada says that the BJP is obstacle in country’s development. “When former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi brought information technology (IT) revolution, the BJP opposed it and said it will increase unemployment.

Besides, he said, the state unit would toil hard to make the Congress-led UPA government to make its hat-trick in 2014.

CLP leader Ravindra Choubey said the party’s mission 2013 and 2014 would only be achieved when the workers would put their effort at booth-level. Terming workers at party’s strength, he said, the performance of Congress in 2013 depends on them.

CM planning to sell CG to foreign investors: Jogi

Raipur, September 28, 2012

Senior Congress MLA Ajit Jogi on Friday alleged that Chief Minister Raman Singh was planning to sell Chhattisgarh to foreign investors. “The CM’s recent global investors’ meet at New Delhi is a clear indicator of his ulterior motives. Now, once again land, water and electricity meant for tribals and farmers would be allocated to investors,” he said.

“While his party - the BJP is strongly opposing foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail, the CM is hell bent on squandering state resources to the foreigner capital investors. His new mantra is vieshi lao swadeshi hatao (bring foreigners, remove locals),” he said.

Terming CM’s efforts impartial, Jogi said he did not even take advice of principal opposition pertaining to state’s progress.

“The CM’s invitation to foreign investors confirms that he wants to recover fat donation from them considering polls ahead,” Jogi said.

He cautioned the CM that Congress would not allow him to sell Chhattisgarh to foreigners and launch massive public movement across the state.

He further asked the CM to stop plundering the state like Britishers and call all-party meeting to hold talks on foreign capital investment.

Raipur, September 28, 2012

Raipur North legislator Kuldeep Singh Juneja participated in shramdaan to fill big potholes appeared from Jail Road to Station Chowk. He said the commuters were facing inconvenience due to poor condition of city roads and several road arteries have become accident-prone zone.

This is injustice to capital residents who certainly deserve at par basic facilities,” he said.

“The government has invited global players to invest in state. For this, it is organising investors’ meet in November. Now, when the foreign investors will come, the government should arrange Raipur city tour for them to make them acquainted with the capital’s wretched conditions,” he added.

Raman gives coal benefit to Adani on Modi pressure: Cong

Raipur, September 27, 2012

Claiming to have exposed yet another irregularity done by Raman Singh-government in coal blocks allocation, Congress has alleged that the Chhattisgarh CM gave coal benefit to Adani group – the company owned by Gautam Adani who is close to Gujarat CM Narendra Modi.

“The Chhattisgarh Mineral Development Corporation (CMDC) first obtained two coal blocks in Orissa and then, sans recommendation of Naveen Patnaik-government, appointed Adani group as MDO (mine developer cum operator) flouting Centre’s conditions. In this deal, the Adani group will get 150 MT coal,” said state Congress incharge BK Hariprasada while talking to media persons at Congress Bhawan on Thursday.

“The CM Raman Singh alleges that the Centre allocated Chhattisgarh coal blocks to unknown individuals/companies without recommendation of his government. Ironically, the CMDC did the same thing,” he pointed.

He informed that the CMDC obtained two coal blocks in Orissa – Chendipada and Chendipada-II forming joint venture firm (UCM Coal Company Limited) with Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited and Maharashtra Power Generation Corporation on July 25, 2007. The total coal available in the two blocks is about 1588.99 MT.

“The Orissa government did not make any recommendation in this allocation. The CMDC told the Centre that the 500 MT raw coal from the two blocks will be supplied to the two power plants (total capacity 2990 MW) of Bhushan Steel Limited at Orissa and Maharashtra. But the Chhattisgarh government appointed Adani group as MDO by inviting bid through CMDC,” he said.

“Now taking U-turn, the CMDC is saying that it would supply washed coal to Bhushan Steel Limited by establishing coal washery through the MDO, a clear violation of Centre’s conditions. In coal washeries, about 30% coals are rejected. The rejected coals are called washery rejects or middlings. So, the CMDC is giving 150 MT rejected coal to some other company,” he added.

He said the CMDC, instead of playing role of middleman and forming joint venture companies, should rather take cue from its counterparts in other states and do the mining job itself.

He further advised the Chhattisgarh CM to stop adopting double standard and surrender both the coal blocks of Orissa to Centre before leveling allegations against it.

Akbar demands CBI inquiry

Congress MLA Mohammad Akbar has demanded CBI inquiry into the entire matter. “The two coal blocks of Orissa are about 500 times bigger than Bhatgaon-II and Bhatgaon-II extension coal blocks and proportionately the corruption is massive.

He informed that the Centre allocated the two coal blocks of Orissa to CMDC for end use in power plant. “Since CMDC does not have its own power plant, it obtained the coal blocks to supply coal to Bhushan Steel Limited,” he said.

Raman Singh is not Raja Harishchandra

When reminded about his announcement that the Congress would soon bring forth energy scam of the state government, Hariprasada said the principal opposition would surely expose the ruling party completely before next polls. 

“The CM is not Raja Harishchandra and we will prove that. He should throw the certificate of being Harishchandra in litter bin,” he said.

We have genealogy of CM’s in-laws: Patel

PCC president Nandkumar Patel reiterated that he had genealogy of CM’s in-laws and would produce it when the time comes. 

Notably, a couple of months back, Patel had announced before the media that he would soon produce the genealogy of CM’s in-laws after the names of latter’s kin appeared in cola blocks allocation in Madhya Pradesh. Earlier, Hariprasada refused to have uttered anything over this issue.

Vora, VC, Jogi, Mahant are seniors

Asked his take over Union Minister of State Charandas Mahant’s demand that ‘second line’ leaders should get opportunity to come forward, Hariprasada said Mahant himself was a senior leader along with Motilal Vora, Vidyacharan Shukla and Ajit Jogi and playing a role of mentor for the partymen. 

He maintained the party would fight next polls under the leadership of state unit president Nandkumar Patel and CLP leader Ravindra Choubey.

Govt effort to rope in global investors dubious: Cong

Raipur, September 26, 2012

Congress says the BJP government’s attempt to rope in global investors is doubtful as its industrial policy is directionless and ineffective.  

“The government had bitter experience in the past. It had inked pacts with outsiders to encourage capital investment in Chhattisgarh, but none met its expectations as all are engaged in simply plundering rich mineral resources of the state,” said Congress spokesperson Sushil Anand Shukla on Wednesday.

“The government signed agreement with more than five dozen companies, but majority were fake. Such companies, using false and manipulated documents and developing rapport with influential officials, managed to acquire possession of rich minerals of the state like iron ore, bauxite, dolomite and coal blocks,” he said.

Sniffing self-interest and corruption in Chief Minister Raman Singh’s beckoning to national and international investors, he said the government should rather encourage small-scale industries of the state so that local entrepreneurs and unemployed youth could get benefited by the move.

“The government has already wasted over Rs ten crore in its road show at New Delhi to attract investors. It will further squander about Rs 50 crore in its global investors’ meet scheduled to be held at Raipur on November 2 and 3. Ironically, the government is creating congenial atmosphere for outsiders, not insiders (local small industrial units),” he said.

Raipur, September 26, 2012

This will happen when people will come forward in developing untapped tourist places of the state,” said Principal Secretary Tourism department KDP Rao during the inauguration ceremony of three-day cultural, painting and photography programme being organised by Chhattisgarh Tourism Board (CTB) to mark World Tourism Day at Guru Teg Bahadur Bhawan on September 25.

Kanwar’s remark unsuitable: Mahant

Raipur, September 25, 2012

Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Food Processing Industry Charandas Mahant has termed state Home Minister Nankiram Kanwar’s remark against him as unsuitable.

Mahant said he does not take Kanwar’s statement seriously when pointed that the latter called him mad for speaking against Chief Minister Raman Singh.

Backing Mahant, state Congress president Nandkumar Patel and CLP leader Ravindra Choubey too condemned Kanwar’s remark against the Central minister.

They said Kanwar resorted to unbecoming language to hog limelight. “Kanwar is a lost man in his own party as he did not get suitable position according to his seniority. He is the minister without rights. He has admitted publicly that the officials of his department do not follow his instructions. Hence, we do not expect balanced language from him,” they said.

“Mahant had stated facts as a responsible leader of the principal opposition party in state while Kanwar’s reply is an evident indicator of growing frustrating in BJP against Congress,” the duo said.

Govt’s new agri policy a deception: Sahu

Raipur, September 25, 2012

Rejecting the government’s new agriculture policy and terming it mere deception, former PCC president Dhanendra Sahu on Tuesday said it was really surprising that the ruling party awoke well after nine years and thought to take initiative for farmers.

“Ironically, the government first acquired large tracts of agricultural lands and gave them to industrialists. Now, it has come up with new agriculture policy to obtain favour of the farmers,” Sahu jeered.

He alleged that the BJP completely ignored agriculture sector during its nine-year regime. “Black marketing of fertilisers, provision of duplicate pesticides and substandard seeds are achievements of the ruling party. The then Congress government had made an arrangement of providing fertilisers to the farmers through mandi board on no profit no loss basis, but the existing BJP government has closed down this system and is rather encouraging black marketing of fertilisers. The government has also failed in increasing crop area,” he said.

He pointed that the government not only sold irrigation water to the industrialists, but also refused to give free electricity for pumps up to 5 HP for irrigation to farmers.

“Besides, the Agriculture department lacks adequate experts who could give technical inputs to the farmers on regular basis. The government is not even fulfilling its promise to disburse Rs 270 paddy bonus to the farmers,” he added.

“The farmers are upset with the government’s apathy towards them. They are not even getting crop insurance. Due to financial crisis, several farmers have committed suicide, but the government has not taken any measure help them,” he said.

BJP govt obstacle in tribals’ development: Jogi

Raipur, September 25, 2012

Congress legislator Ajit Jogi on Tuesday termed the BJP government as major obstacle in development of tribals. “Unfortunately, development could not reach tribal belts in last nine years of BJP regime despite ample fund flow from Centre. Evidently, the state government is responsible for ‘no development’ of tribals,” Jogi said.

He also blamed the BJP government for disturbances in the tribal regions. “The then Congress government had succeeded in maintaining peace and tranquility in tribal areas during its three of tenure while now the people there live in terror. Certainly this situation occurred because the government failed to frame concrete policy for tribal development,” he said.

He alleged that the funds allocated for development works in Bastar and Sarguja division went to corrupt hands. “However, some works have been carried out, but none meets requisite norms,” he added.

Cong collectorate-gherao prog in Ambikapur, Surajpur today

विकास ज़रूरी है, जनता जाए भाड़ मे

(यह व्यंग्य मैने विश्व के सबसे काबिल अर्थशास्त्री और भारत के प्रधानमंत्री मनमोहन सिंह पर लिखा है, उम्मीद है वे मेरी बातों का अवश्य बुरा मानेंगे..)

प्रधानमंत्री मनमोहन सिंह को अचानक विकास शब्द से लगाव हो गया है। आठ साल तक उनके मंत्रीगण देश की लुटिया डुबोते रहे परंतु वे खामोश रहे। बड़े बड़े घोटाले हुए लेकिन उनके चेहरे पर शिकन तक नही आई। जब जनता को लगने लगा क़ि - 'अरे ये तो काफ़ी सालों से कोमा मे हैं और शायद इसलिए मैडम पर्दे के पीछे से सरकार चला रही हैं', तभी वे अचानक बोल पड़े - देश का बंटाधर मैं स्वयं करूँगा। यह शुभ कार्य करने के लिए उन्होने विकास का नारा दिया।  

क्या मतलब? अरे भई, जीना, खाना, तेल, पानी, स्वास्थ्य, शिक्षा, सब महँगी कर दो और बोलो इससे देश का विकास होगा।  वैसे भी जनता ठहरी बेज़ुबान जानवर और विपक्षी दल ठहरे मौक़ापरस्त, तो विरोध का स्वरूप एक दिन के देश बंद से अधिक क्या होगा? पुनः: शांति छा जाएगी  और फिर करो नंगा नाच।

दरअसल मनमोहन सिंह संवेदनशील प्रधानमंत्री हैं। उसकी संवेदनशीलता अंतरराष्ट्रीय स्तर की है। इसलिए आतंकवाद, नक्सलवाद, महँगाई, किसानों की आत्महत्या, ग़रीबी जैसी समस्याओं से उनकी भावनाएँ आहत नही होतीं।  हाँ, यदि अमेरिका की टाइम पत्रिका अथवा वॉशिंग्टन पोस्ट अख़बार उन्हें कमजोर और उपलब्धि-विहीन प्रधानमंत्री करार देती हैं तो उन्हें अंतरराष्ट्रीय जगत मे अपनी कृत्रिम छवि खराब होने की चिंता सताने लगती है।  अजीब आदमी हैं - बुढ़ापा घर मे काटना है और शर्म उन बाहर वालों से आती है जिनसे रूबरू होने की संभावना मौत तक नही है।

करियर ढलान पर है, सोचा देशवासियों का भविष्य भी चौपट कर दिया जाए। इसलिए घुमा दी बड़ी बड़ी बातों की चक्करघिन्नी, विकास दर को नये क्षितिज पर पहुँचाने की ठान ली और डीजल एवम् गैस के दामों मे बढ़ोतरी कर दी। सेंसेक्स और निफ्टी उछलने लगे और आम जनता का दिल बैठ गया। अर्थशास्त्री महोदय मुस्कुराने लगे, कहने लगे ये तो अभी ट्रेलर है, पिक्चर तो अभी बाकी है मेरे दोस्त।

लोग सकपकाए हुए हैं, जाने ये आदमी और क्या क्या सितम ढाएगा, पूरे देश को तो इसने प्रयोगशाला बना दिया है, अब आगे क्या?  दरअसल आगे कुछ नही है, सिवाय तकलीफ़ के। मनमोहन सरकार ने अपने राज मे नया पहाड़ बनाया -  माउंट महँगाई जो माउंट एवरेस्ट की चोटी को पकड़ पकड़ कर ऐंठती रहती है।  जनता के लिए यह बात प्रतीकात्मक है - यदि वह भी लोकतंत्र मे स्वयं को सरकार से बड़ी समझेगी तो सरकार उसे मरोड़ कर रख देगी।

और विकास? वह तो होकर रहेगा, विकसित नेता होंगे और जनता कुपोषित। यह तो सदा का दस्तूर रहा है। गाँवों मे सड़क, पानी, बिजली पहुँचाना है - बिल्कुल पहुँचेगा। कब? पता नही। हर नागरिक को शिक्षित करना है - कर देंगे। कैसे? आँकड़ों मे।  कौन बेवकूफ़ दूर-दराज स्थानों मे यह जानने के लिए मरने जाएगा कि सरकार सच बोल रही है या झूठ। हर गाँव मे स्वास्थ्य केंद्र होना चाहिए, भले चिकित्सक हो या ना हो। मध्यान्ह भोजन कौन खा रहा है, पता नही, हाँ पकाने वाले स्कूल के बच्चे हैं। आम आदमी मरते दम तक बुनियादी सुविधाओं के लिए तरसते हैं, बड़े बड़े शापिंग मॉल को हतप्रभ चने फाँकते हुए निहारते हैं और कहते हैं - वाकई देश तरक्की कर रहा है।

मनमोहन सरकार ने दाल, चावल, गेहूँ, शक्कर, सब्जी को सोना बना दिया है, एक ग्राम ख़रीदो और थाली मे सजाकर बीस मिनट मन भरकर देखो, पेट अपने आप भर जाएगा।  लोग यदि शिकायत करते हैं तो सरकार कहती है - ग़लत बात, एक तो हम तुम भिखारियों का भविष्य सँवारने का प्रयोजन कर रहे हैं और तुम हो कि हमे ही आँखें तरेर रहे हो, चुप रहो और तमाशा देखो, एक दिन हम भारत को अमरीका बना देंगे। जनता आक्रोशित है, कहती है विकास गया तेल लेने, इस मूर्ख सरकार के मूर्खतापूर्ण निर्णयों से भारत अमरीका तो नही वरन अफ़्रीका ज़रूर बन जाएगा।  मनमोहन सिंह मुस्कुराते हैं, कहते हैं - अरे पागलों, अफ्रीका भी तो विदेश है, यदि दो कौड़ी का हिन्दी बोलने वाला भारत अँग्रेज़ी बोलने वाले अफ्रीकी राष्ट्र की तरह बन जाएगा तो क्या यह तरक्की नही है।

सत्य वचन मनमोहन सिंह जी। प्रयोग चलने दो - जनता बचे ना बचे, देश ज़रूर बच जाएगा। फिर बुला लेना विदेशियों को यहाँ बसाने के लिए। पूरब मे रखा क्या है, अब सूर्योदय पश्चिम से होगा, धर्म और तंत्र का ज्ञान पश्चिम से आएगा, भारत पुनः पुनः बसेगा, पर लोग कोई और होंगे, फिर यह वाकई विदेश बन जाएगा..
