लालू की खुराक

September 30, 2013

200 करोड़ का चारा डकारने वाले लालू यादव इस बात से चिंतित हैं कि जेल मे वे खाएँगे क्या। सुनने मे आया है कि राँची के बिरसा मुंडा जेल के कैदी घबराए हुए हैं कि कहीं लालू उनका चारा ना खा जाएँ। लालू की खुराक के बारे मे सुनकर जेलर साहब भी कांप रहे हैं कि कहीं लालू कैदियों को ही ना खा जाएँ। उन्होने सिपाहियों को भी ताकीद कर दी है कि लालू के आस-पास ना दिखें वरना उनका ग्रस बनने का डर है। जेलर साहब स्वयं लालू से मिलने से कतरा रहे हैं।

रविशंकर की इच्छा

September 28, 2013

श्री श्री रविशंकर ने छत्तीसगढ़ मे दो महत्वपूर्ण बातें कही - नक्सली यदि आध्यात्म का मार्ग अपनाएँ तो सुधर सकते हैं, तथा वे (अर्थात स्वयं श्री श्री रविशंकर) मध्यस्थ के रूप मे माओवादियों से बात करने के लिए तैयार हैं। सरकार को तुरंत हामी भर देना चाहिए और रविशंकर को बस्तर के घने जंगलों मे घूम-घूमकर शिविर लगाने की अनुमति दे देना चाहिए। अरे भई, जब नाना प्रकार के प्रयास करने के बाद भी नक्सली नाक मे दम किए बैठे हैं तो एक प्रयास रविशंकर को करने दें। क्या पता, परिणाम सुखद मिले..

Ineligible organisation gets contract, NSUI opposes

Raipur, September 27, 2013

With its demand to revoke contract given to an organisation terming it ineligible for the purpose, the NSUI gheraoed tribal development department and submitted a memorandum to department’s additional director Sharda Verma on Friday.

The NSUI’s Raipur district president Pradeep Sahu said the department violated all the norms to give contract to one UICT imparting computer training to tribal students.

“The contract was awarded through bidding process. To obtain the contract, a bidder was supposed to have an annual turnover of Rs one crore, but the UICT fails to meet this requisite. Besides, the registration year of this organisation was changed from 2009 to 2008 through manipulations,” Sahu said.

He alleged that the tender was awarded to UICT because one of its partners Lalit Goel was representative of BJP MLA from Bhatgaon Rajni Tripathi. “All the tenders have been awarded to BJPians or their closer ones in past ten years,” he added.

He cautioned tribal development department of launching aggressive protest movement against it if the tender would not be cancelled.

Raipur, September 25, 2013

Congress legislator Ajit Jogi has sought explanation from state government for deciding not to conduct probe into Rs 60000 crore-furniture scam despite chief secretary Sunil Kumar himself recommending for it after his name was dragged in the matter.

“There must be something fishy about the matter, therefore Kumar urged chief minister Raman Singh through a letter to hand over the case to CBI,” Jogi said.

“The government cannot just rub its hands by telling that the matter had been sorted out. The people want the government to disclose the names of responsible people behind furniture scam and reason for its refusal to conduct investigation into the matter by high-level agency,” he added.

CM trying to cover the scam

Alleging that the CM was trying to cover the scam, the PCC spokesperson Sushil Anand Shukla said the fight for share of graft collection in last ten years was surfacing in such an ugly manner. 

“The standoff between state ministers and administrative officials on corruption is really a serious issue. The minister neither trusts his department’s officials nor the CS. The officials, in suppressed voice, are alleging that the minister is mounting undue pressure on them,” he said.

“When the CS has shown courage to face CBI inquiry then why the CM is hesitant in roping in the central agency? Besides furniture scam, the CM should ask the CBI to also inquire into mines and power scams,” he said.

NaMo, Chetan Bhagat away from reality, says Congress

Raipur, September 23, 2013

Ridiculing novelist Chetan Bhagat for his comparative remark on its national vice president Rahul Gandhi and BJP’s PM Narendra Modi, the state Congress on Monday said both Bhagat and Modi were much away from reality.

“While one exaggerates in his speeches, the other does it in his novels. It is natural that the two persons living in dream world fee connected to each other. None of the two understands public sentiments,” said PCC spokesperson Mahendra Chhabda.

Bhagat, during his day-long Chhattisgarh visit on September 22, had stated that – Modi is full of ideas while Gandhi has nothing except his mother.

Chhabda said Bhagat was flattering Modi because he was eyeing Rajya Sabha seat through BJP quota. Chhabda advised Bhagat to raise his mental level to comprehend Gandhi’s thoughts.

“Gandhi guided Centre in framing several people-oriented laws. To his credit are the laws like food security, land acquisition, MNREGA, RTI, RTE, etc. While Gandhi meets poor to bring his schemes to practical footing, Bhagat goes to five star hotels and pubs to develop thoughts for his novels,” he added.

Terming Bhagat’s identity no less than a dwarf before Gandhi’s persona, Chhabda said merely writing few novels in mediocre language, the former had started counting self among nation’s top litterateurs.

“The man, who writes on theme of pizza and burger, will never understand significance of mother, rice-dal-chapatti and employment. Ironically, Bhagat is not even known to one percent of Indian population as compared to Congress that has reached to remotest part of the country, but he arrogantly boasts that he would not hesitate in publicising Gandhi’s thoughts if the latter would have any,” Chhabda said.

“On Monday morning, the yellow cardholders of zone 8 and 9 learnt that sewing machines and bicycles will be distributed by the municipal at zone 8 office. Hence, about 1000 beneficiaries formed queue before zone 8 office but only 50 could obtain tokens for the said purpose because there were only two officials to do the job.

Cong to complain election commission against PWD min

Raipur, September 21, 2013

Terming saree, umbrella, bag, sweet and calendar distribution by PWD minister Brijmohan Agrawal to females during mahila uththan (women upliftment) programme in his Raipur South assembly constituency an attempt to affect them ahead of Vidhan Sabha polls, the Congress on Saturday said it would complain about it to the election commission.

“With less than two months remaining for polls, code of conduct will be implemented in next couple of days. In this scenario, if any state minister distributes sarees and other items gratis to voters, it would be considered as a deliberate attempt to influence them. The Supreme Court too says - even if there is ample time for polls, the act of party publicity through free distribution of commodities to voters comes under category of affecting voters by benefiting them. Hence, the Congress will take up this matter to the election commission,” said PCC spokesperson Sushil Anand Shukla.

He said it was an irony that the minister thought about women upliftment so late when crime against females had increased by manifolds in state.

“In last 15 days, two women were gangraped in their houses. The incidents occurred in the minister’s assembly constituency. Besides, innocent minors were raped in government’s ashram schools and several females are missing from state but the government is hibernating,” he added.

Mahant seeks clarification from CM on BALCO case

Raipur, September 21, 2013

PCC president Charandas Mahant on Saturday sought clarification from chief minister Raman Singh pertaining to BALCO land acquisition case.

“He should tell on what grounds his cabinet legalised BALCO’s illegal works. He must also explain why the cabinet lent permission to BALCO to get the lands diverted without completing requisite formalities,” said Mahant.

BALCO has reportedly fringed environmental norms during its land acquisition process for its 1200 MW power plant.

“It is mandatory to complete all the formalities before using a forest land and commencing construction works on it. The Supreme Court has banned construction and other works on forest lands. Neither the local civic body, i.e. Korba municipal corporation has given any permission regarding construction works, nor the town and country planning department has approved the layout of BALCO. Despite this, the state cabinet did not hesitate in lending permission of diversion to BACLO,” he added.

He alleged that the government obliged BACLO management ahead of assembly elections because it intended to aimed take major benefit from it in coming days.

He said if the government had made its mindset to clear all hurdles for BALCO then why it stalled approval on pretext of norms and deceived unemployed youth who are waiting desperately for the power plant to commence.

Jogi says CBI probe into furniture, cycle scams must

Raipur, September 21, 2013

Pointing that state ministers were involved in about Rs 60000 crore-furniture and bicycle scams Congress legislator Ajit Jogi on Saturday felt that CBI probe should be ordered into both the cases. Jogi’s demand came a day after chief secretary Sunil Kumar expressed his readiness to be investigated by Central agency, for his name too is being linked to both scams.

“As the documents obtained under Right to Information (RTI) Act too confirm involvement of BJP ministers in furniture and bicycle scams, the government should now issue instant orders of CBI probe into the matters,” Jogi said.

“The government must also order CBI inquiry into text book purchase as government had hastened in revoking the deal when grafts worth crores surfaced in it,” he said.

He said the government did several scams through its ministers during its two terms. “The state witness grafts in land purchase, mines allocation, sapling purchase for forest department, school uniform purchase, medicine purchase, paddy purchase, public distribution system, smart cards, etc. Still, the government did not rope any independent agency to probe into these matters,” he said.

Besides, he said, to encourage tourism and movie industry the Congress government will also constitute film development corporation in state.

Through the memorandum, the Chhollywood artists said the incumbent government was indifferent towards their demands and hence they feel insulted.

Mahant said he had always believed that the state film artists were talented and simply required opportunity to develop.

They also clarified that newly formed Satnam Sena had nothing to do with members of Satnami community. “The objective of Satnam Sena is to benefit BJP government and divide Satnami community. However, we are well aware that only Congress will safeguard our interests and hence we will always help each other,” they said.

Manni wants to meet NaSh

September 26, 2013

Despite twin terror attacks in Jammu, PM Manmohan Singh is hell bent on meeting his (Na)Pak counterpart Nawaz Sharif (NaSh) in the US. Manni is a cool fella.

He won't mind sacrificing all Indians to Pak terrorist if global fraternity acknowledges his peace-loving image and asks Sweden to give him next Nobel peace prize.

Brave boy

September 25, 2013

Kudos to four-year-old Brit lad Elliot Prior, who unflinchingly looked in the eyes of one of the terrorists involved in Nairobi mall attack and said ‘you are a bad man’. His courage earned him life. Aren’t we suppose to display similar spirit when somebody tries to influence us on the name of religion or jehad? If this happens, nobody will become terrorist.

घर मे पधारो गजानन जी, मेरे घर मे पधारो..

September 21, 2013

कल रात्रि रायपुर मे गणेश जी की झाँकी निकाली गई। आज शहर सुनसान लग रहा है। अभी कुछ दिनों पहले ही तो लम्बोदर शहर की नुक्कड़-गलियों, चौक-चौबारों मे तने छोटे-बड़े पंडालों मे विभिन्न रूपों मे विराजे थे। 

पूरा शहर गणपति उत्सव के उल्लास मे डूबा हुआ था। मन कितना भी खिन्न हो, राह से गुज़रते हुए आँखें गणेश जी की मूर्ति पर जैसे ही ठहरती थीं, ऐसा लगता था सबकुछ ठीक हो गया। आज आँखें अश्रुपूरित हैं क्योंकि गजानन की यात्रा पंडालों से आगे बढ़ गई है। 

हे विघ्नहर्ता, जब तेरी मूर्ति को निहारने भर से मन शांत हो जाता है, तो प्रतिपल तेरी स्तुति से हमें कितनी स्थिरता मिलेगी। हे ज्ञान के पुंज, हमें हमारे खोखले ज्ञान के अंधकार से मुक्ति दे ताकि हम जाति व धर्म के आधार पर किसी से भेदभाव ना करें, हर नारी की रक्षा करें और देश के बच्चों का भविष्य सँवारने की हिम्मत कर सकें। 

हे शिव-पार्वती पुत्र, हमें क्षमा कर कि तुझे अपने अंतस मे स्थापित करने के बजाए तेरी मूर्ति को पुनः-पुनः स्थापित कर हम तुझसे अपनी निकटता का दंभ भरते हैं। अब के हे देवताओं के राजा, हमारे मन-रूपी गृह मे प्रवेश कर और हमें अपनी भक्ति-रस मे सदा के लिए डूबने का वरदान दे..
