Dalit-Maratha conflict in Maharashtra triggered by Prakash Ambedkar, allegedly claimed by a section? Were the riots incited by the so-called resurgence of " Brahmanism " ,allege others ?

The celebration has been taking place peacefully ,year-after-year without  rancour from any quarter. How did it flare up suddenly this year? A deep - state conspiracy by the Congis and Commies , discomfited by their defeats in assembly polls. At least, so it seems.?

"Bahut chubhti hai teri chuppi ae, Congis aur Commies,

Kahin Ghul ghapara bhi ho jaye, par tujhe kuch fark nahi "

Whatever  may be the findings of  investigation , the politicos are laughing up their sleeves showing sham empathy with the dalits

Explosive revelation by Subramanian Swamy while addressing a gathering of CAs in Ahmedabad on 23rd Dec, 2017 as reported by Indian Express dt 24th Dec, 2017.

Dr Swamy has alleged fudging of Statistics by the  Central Statistics Organisation (CSO) under union Min. of Statistics &Programme Implementation ( MOSPI ) in computing quaterly GDP.

Incidentally, the CSO was founded by Dr Swamy’s  father late Sitaram Subramanian , a well known mathematician and was a one time Director of the Central Statistical Institute, supposedly a rival to P C Mahalanobis who was the founder of ISI, Kolkatta.

Dr Subramanian Swamyreceived the BSc ( Hons) degree in Mathematics from Hindu College of DU and Masters in Statistics from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkatta.He Holds a PhD in Economics from Harvard University .

In view of above , reinforced by CSO officials’ confession of  “ pressures” from above ( Read as Finance ministry ) , Swamy’s innuendos against the CSO’s allegedly unethical practices can’t be taken lightly.A damage control exercise in MOSPI, necessitated by electoral compulsions, is underway.

Prof T C A Anant present Secretary(MOSPI)-cum-Chief Statistician of India will have much to explain to the Parliamentary Standing Committee.Was he not kept in the loop by his DG and ADG in CSO? The present CSI was initially  appointed  in June 2010 for five years. He got three years extension till June 2015 followed by yet another extension that expires in January 2018. Total 8 years He is now seeking extension of his tenure as CSI beyond 8th year beyond Jan 2018.

Heads will roll both in MOSPI and Min of Finance. Chaos, noise , anarchy in Parliament.

In order to be fair , I can only say that the practice of unwarranted interference by MOF in MOSPI’s GDP calculation, sorry, manipulation, has been going on covertly for several decades with full knowledge of Secretaries,Ministers and in collusion with senior officers of both ministries. The tool of GDP was misused with impunity during the Congress-led UPA era. The existing dispensation followed the unscrupulous tradition laid down by its illustrious predecessor under,possibly, electoral compulsions.

PM Modi was expected to expose the vicious UPA practice , instead of giving a free hand to MOSPI  and Finance Ministry in pursuing the same.

All things considered, India must thank Dr Subramanian Swamy for uncovering the malpractices.

Shocking judgement by special CBI court on 2G spectrum allocation scam.

Judicial pronouncement or political narrative,one wonders ?

Bungling by CBI. Its evidences could not stand the judicial scrutiny.

Roles of  high networth industrial houses of India , is in question.

Indictment of former C&AG Vinod Rai  raises more question than solve.

Sudden transfers of   SP and DIG ,CBI charged with investigation of 2G scam at crucial moment ,was baffling.

“It was not A Raja, but Pulok Chatterjee, in consultation with TKA Nair, as he had suppressed the most relevant and controversial part of the letter of A Raja from the then Prime Minister,” said CBI special judge Saini.

Suggestions  were made to the ruling dispensation to get T K A Nair, former Principal Secy and, more importantly, Pulok Chatterji, former JS, later elevated as Secretary to the then PM Manmohan Singh, interrogated by the CBI. Their earlier confessional statements to CBI had the stamp of approval of the then de facto PM.

Move to grill former PM’s aides was reportedly blocked by the all-powerful IAS fraternity. Why? And,at whose behest?And, to protect whom ?

It will be simplistic to suggest that PM MMS was not kept in the loop by his aides.Files on policy matters and appointments  were  regularly shown to the Chairperson, NAC.

Pulok Chatterji wielded enormous power by virtue of his loyalty and proximity to the Cong supremo.  A general factotum to the supremo, he kept  shuttling between the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation and the PMO depending on which party was in power.This was an open secret  much before Sanjay Baru’s memoirs “The Accidental Prime Minister,hit the stands.

In fact, Maun Maun Singh was so much enamoured of PM's chair that he chose to remain silent before formalising all oral orders of the Congress supremo,as conveyed by former PM's aides.

UPA’s caged parrot CBI remained soft to PMO officials ? It is understood that PMO officials' statements were legally and officially vetted to remain in sync with Manmohan Singh's stand. All to protect the supremo.

In order to get at the bottom of of the truth, extra-ordinary steps  are required against all accused. Skeletons  in the cupboard will start tumbling out.

For how long could the real perpetrators be allowed to have a free run.

Any secret deal, one wonders?

The ruling  political dispensation  has much to explain.

Emboldened by the twin electoral victories in Gujarat and HP, PM Modi must now focus on big-ticket corruption by high- networth business houses and individuals rather than run after small rogues.

All are having a free run within India and abroad.

PM Modi won the last general elections on the plank of UPA  corruption scams.He had promised to bring the guilty to book.

Some infamous scams are : Bofors, Sathyam (2009),CWG (2010), Coalgate (2012), 2G spectrum (2008) Navy war room leaks, Sathyam scam (2012), Choppers scam (2012 ), Tatra truck (2012), Adarsh scam (2012),Delhi Jal Board tanker scam - ( Rs 400 crores) wherein the Anti-Corruption Bureau has filed an FIR against former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit and current Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Saradha group financial scandal and last but not the least Robert Vadra scam . The list is endless.

These scams are crying for prosecution and convictions of perpetrators.

Precious time has been wasted by the current political dispensation, resulting in public disenchantment, disillusionment with the leadership

Is removing corruption separable from Good governance ?

The quality of indian politics has ,of late, gone down abysmally low.Sample some dastardly utterances by arrogant politicos.

Sonia labels Modi : Maut ka saudagar .  Priyanka Gandhi blames him for : Khoon ki dalaali .

Rahul calls him : “ Gangoo teli,gandi naali ka keera “. All in the family.

A small-time politician and a Ra Ga's stooge Sandeep Dikshit labels Army Chief General Rawat : " Sarak kaa goonda "

Mani Shankar Aiyar broke all records by blabbering :" Yeh Modi bahut neech kism kaa aadmi hai. Koi sabhyataa nahi hai". The haughty Aiyar , on Dec 7 , 2017,called PM Modi : "Chaiwala in 2014, Neech aadmi in 2017 He takes pride in claiming : " Rahul Gandhi as a Janeu-dhari Brahmin ". The same  knucklehead  had sought Pakistan's help in removing Modi sarkar.

Such elite loose cannons of the dynastic Congress are downright vulgar, uncouth, uncivil and casteist. All at the behest of the dirty-tricks department of the Congress (Rahul ).

PM Modi is OBC. He is dubbed by Aiyar as " Neech " .

Do the congis regard SCs and STs as " Maha- Neech"

A hideously degenerate mindset.

The ,superannuated congis remain moot spectators, vying for photo-ops with the dynasty. Spineless parasytes, paid charlatans . Pliant, malleable nincompoops.

Aiyar's suspension is no solution. Public demands his immediate expulsion from the party. Even, prosecution under  the law of the land for making derogatory references against a particular section of society.

Let us wait for peoples' verdicts in HP and Gujarat polls.

Who knows, the Congress (Rahul) may emerge as a hypertensive, cardiacally - paralysed party, lodged in ICU, heading towards ventilator.

North Korea's latest ICBM test against international sanctions,brings the World closer to the brink of war.This is not a fictional scenario Crisis, fast spinning out of control. Is the cynic Kim Jong not aware that his small , under-nourished and financially emaciated country will be the worst sufferer in case of a holocaust. Of course, with equal damage to South Korea.

China is not helpless in taming North Korea.It has a sinister motive.

Heavily dependent on its trade with the US, China is more interested in keeping the pot boiling between North Korea and the US.

Kim Jong must not forget that a surprise attack by him on South Korea would boomerang. His belligerent rhetoric with propaganda of triumph and total war, could leave its own leaders mistakenly convinced about winning such a conflict, just as the sloppy toughness of the White House might convince Kim that the US is about to strike.

High time for the to US exercise the sole option of carrying out pre-emptive strikes instead of getting bullied by Kim Jong on hourly basis. The US’s image is getting irreversibly dented anyway in the comity of nations.

Same advice to India against the twin threat from its immediate neighbours, both India’s permanent enemies.

I am confident, I articulate the views of  the fellow indians, across the country, in their day-to-day experiences.Sample my following experiences:

The  private  Chartered Accountants  charge hefty fee from clients for filing IT returns allegedly for "bribing" IT officers,retaining lion's share for themselves.

This is being openly admitted by the practising CAs.

Similarly, lawyers allegedly act as conduits in subordinate judiciary

All bribe their way through the dark alleys of court premises by greasing palms of petty court officials. Bails, adjournments, acquittals etc are readily available. But, all for a price. Recent expose/ sting operations by the Republic TV channel, should be an eye-opener  both for subordinate and top Judiciary. This has nothing to do with the shortage of judges. Simply put, it is all due to total lack of judicial accountability.

Consider Delhi. Ubiquitous touts  can be seen hovering around  public dealing offices like Police, local bodies, transport,Jal boards,Bijli boards and so on. Engineers of local bodies  and the Police  collude with each other with the blessings of local legislators ,by openly demanding  heavy cuts for permitting encroachments by the venders on public land.MCDs , DDA are the worst offenders.Their vigilance officers are incompetent, laidback .

This is the scenario in the National capital. Situation in States is incredibly horrifying.

All government departments are forced to observe Vigilance Week,year-after- year, wasting manhours, public exchequer.

Politicians get undeserved publicity  by the electronic and print media. The politicians enjoy their own speeches at the cost of public discomfiture. Event managers do roaring businesses,charging heavy cost. Their empanelment by  government organisations  based on  “ security consideration “ ,is an open secret.The only positive feature  is that they are security-vetted.  But ,not, competitive. A racket prevalent  all over the country.Can some one , for instance, guestimate the total expenditure  in organising an event in Delhi’s Vigyan Bhavan? 

Phenomenal. We need to conserve our resources and utilise it in priority areas.

Similarly, foundation-stone  laying ceremony by celebrities is another atrocious practice dear to politicians. A drain on public exchequer that must be abolished. In Uttar Pradesh , the CM has reportedly, barred  his Ministers and Chief Secretary from performing such ceremonies. Achieving  “Amaratva “ (Immortality ) through  foundation-stone laying , is the sole prerogative of  the political class alone. Funny,but,true.

No one is aware of  the demoralising  impact such events have on the hapless  citizens who constitute the largest public interface and the worst victims.

November 1725

Old habits die hard

Lucknow Metro is facing continuous losses for not getting enough passengers.

Who is  the Villain ??

Paan and  Gutka masala. These are not permitted during security check . The passengers are forced to throw  the pouch into the dustbin and even spit it out if anyone is found chewing it.

Paan and gutka are considered more important than the Metro in Uttar Pradesh.

Media reports of Mumbai's Elphinstone footbridge being rebuilt by indian army,is disturbing.Who is firing the shot,one wonders?

Is the railway’s civil wing not considered professionally competent?

Are the Railway minister, CRB and engineers not confident to execute their mandated functions.?

Why not complete the promised investigations on a war footing , check culpability and punish the guilty? It does not take a rocket science.

But, don't belittle the indian army.Its contribution during the floods,earthquakes and other emergencies must be gratefully recognised. 

It should be left to prepare for a two-front war with China and Pakistan

Haryana has a penchant for cheap publicity. It has continuously been in the news, of late, all for the wrong reasons.The latest news about 100 Haryana government school teachers,doubling as ‘ Pandit jis’ or ‘ pujaris’ after they were officially assigned extra duties at hindu temples in Yamunanagar district in addition to teaching.

Over 100 teachers were roped into religious duties like tying the sacred thread, distributing prasad at the annual temple festival. They were also tasked by the district magistrate with the job of counting of cash offerings by the devotees at the four-day "Kapal Mochan" festival in Yamunanagar.

The news is not only ludicrous but bizarre,too. Worse, hell broke loose when a majority of teachers failed to show up for the Priest training sessions. All were issued show cause notices by the district education officer to explain why action should not be taken against them for non-compliance of orders.

School teachers were also recently ordered in Haryana to keep all night vigils on stubble-burning, a major environmental problen in the state and the adjoining Punjab . All after their day’ labour in schools.

The school teachers are also roped in for enumeration job in connection with Census besides election duties.The Kerala cops also perform temple duties without full uniform and bare footed at Sabarimala for months.  in a state where over 50 percent population are communism- believers.They controle the crowd of devotees. All these are fine in lieu of officially assigned  work.

But, deploying Haryana school teachers on priestly duties inside the sanctum sanctorum,is un-heard of . Reprehensible and illegal,too.One cannot be forced to enter any place of worship against his/her wish on religeous duties in a secular country. All at the cost of State’s exchequer.The protests by school teachers against DM seem justified.But,what else could the poor DM do against the wishes  of political masters and their VVIP style of functioning.

Schools are not Gurukul Ashrams or Madrassas.
