Men made scam of Rs 2.5 lakh crore: Congress on Pulses crisis

By on Sunday, July 31, 2016
The Congress on Friday alleged that business houses and hoarders had made Rs 2.5 lakh crore by artificially inflating the prices of pulses with tacit support from BJP governments in the states and at the Centre.
The accusation comes a day after party vice-president Rahul Gandhi hinted at a scam behind the rising prices of pulses.
“A few corporate houses, import cartels and hoarders looted Rs 2.5 lakh crore in the last 15 months,” Congress communications chief Randeep Surjewala told a news conference.
“The directorate of revenue intelligence and the Intelligence Bureau has full knowledge. We want an answer from the Prime Minister why no action was taken.”
Surjewala then explained the calculations behind the allegation.
“The MSP (minimum support price) of pulses produced in India varies between Rs 45 and Rs 50 per kg. Even if a processing fee of Rs 5 per kg, transportation charges of Rs 5 per kg and 10 per cent profit (Rs 5 per kg) are added, the sale price does not go above Rs 65 per kg. But the government allowed pulses to be sold for around Rs 150 to Rs 200 per kg,” he said.
“Similarly, the average price of imported pulses in 2013-14 was Rs 34.73 per kg when the market price under UPA was around Rs 70 per kg. In 2014-15, the import price was Rs 37.32 per kg and in 2015-16, it was Rs 41.80 per kg. An impression was created that the prices had soared because the imported pulses were costly. But the daylight robbery is clearly discernible.”
Surjewala said the figure of Rs 2.5 lakh crore was based on the consumption figure of around 23 million tonnes of pulses annually, which means the Congress is alleging a “robbery” of about Rs 110 per kilogram.
“Profiteering of Rs 85/90 per kg is writ large,” he said, adding that there could be about a dozen private parties who “did this robbery”.
He suggested the decision by many state governments, particularly those of (BJP-ruled) Gujarat and Maharashtra, not to extend the dates of the stock limits on pulses had facilitated hoarding.
“The stock limits on pulses were lifted by the Gujarat government, headed by Modi, on 30.09.2013. On 27.09.2013, the UPA government had decided to extend the validity of the restriction on stocking of pulses, edible oils and edible oilseeds till 30.09.2014 but the Gujarat government refused to extend the order beyond 30.09.2013,” he said.




India warns traders in deals with Chinese businessmen

By on Sunday, July 31, 2016
India has warned its traders to be wary in dealings with their Chinese counterparts who could supply stones, bricks, mud, salt among other things in place of genuine orders.
"It is to enhance the commercial cooperation between India and China by drawing attention to some of the risks faced by Indian traders/SMEs to take preventive and/or mitigating action," the advisory issued by the Indian consulate in Shanghai said this week.
It said the traders could be duped with "sand, stones, salt, bricks, mud etc. in place of chemicals, Silicon Carbide, Aluminium and Zinc ingots, shellac, plastics, polymers etc."
In the past, such advisories have been put up on the website of the Indian embassy.
An official in the Indian embassy described the advisory as a "routine thing".
"The bilateral trade is increasing. The advisory is to encourage (traders) to follow due diligence to avoid trade dispute," an official at the Indian embassy told IANS.
"It's a routine thing. Don't read too much into it," the official added.
Ties between both nations have taken a hit after a string of issues in the past few months, the latest being India's refusal to renew the visas of three Chinese journalists based in India.
Beijing's opposition to New Delhi's bid for membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group is also one of the irritants.
Trade deficit between the two countries increased to $44.7 billion during April-January period of 2015-16.

"Mayawati is selling tickets (to contest polls)...She is a three-time chief minister but she gives tickets to anyone who gives her Rs. 1 crore. If someone comes with 2 crores in the afternoon, she gives him a ticket. If somebody comes with 3 crores in the evening, she dumps the previous candidates and picks him. Today her character is worse than that of a prostitute."

22 million employees and pension holders of Uttar Pradesh government to be benefited:CM Akhilesh Yadav

By on Monday, July 18, 2016
Seventh Pay Commission Report to be implemented in Uttar Pradesh before election code of conduct

Akhilesh Yadav's cabinet on Monday proposed a gift of happiness to almost 22 million employees and pension holders of Uttar Pradesh government. After the Cabinet meeting, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has announced that the government has stepped ahead to implement the seventh pay commission report to the employees of state government. The Uttar Pradesh state government employees around 1.6 million and 6 million pensioners are to be benefitted.
Chief Minister said, “A committee will be formed; he will appoint the chairman for it. The committee will submit its report within six months.”
According to sources, the Akhilesh government that is trying to maintain the feel-good atmosphere during this season of coming assembly election is preparing to introduce it within two to three months.
Government may implement the seventh pay scale in the month of October this year lest the gift of employees and pension holders should be stuck somewhere in the rounds of the election code of conduct.
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said, “it will cost Rs 24,000 crore burden over government in implementing; but the state government proposal of 20 per cent HRA hike to employees has currently stuck.”
After a few days it can get approval. It is believed to be fixed; it will also be announced by the state government before the election code of conduct.
The gift by state government is not just limited to the government employees. The Samajwadi Party has to look very large vote bank of weavers so today the cabinet under Samajwadi Handloom Weavers’ Pension Scheme decided to give Rs 500 as pension to the weavers of over 60 years every month.


Instrument of Accession with India: and its acceptance by governor general

By on Monday, July 18, 2016
Sir Hari Singh Bahadur, Maharaja of J & K who signed "Instrument of Accession" with India in 1947
India got Independence in 1947 under India (Independence) Act passed by British Parliament. Under this Act, India was divided into 2 separate countries of India and Pakistan, and some 584 princely States were given the choice of either merging with India or Pakistan.
 J&K was one such princely State ruled by Maharaja Hari Singh. He was dithering over the merger issue in October 1947 when Pakistan invaded J&K and tried to annex it by force, Maharaja asked for India’s help. Sardar Ballabh Bhai Patel, then Home Minister of India, agreed to provide help on 26 October 1947.

Hari Singh Ji signed Instrument of Accession with India on 27 October 1947 Lord Mount Battens as Governor General Of India and representative of British Crown, accepted the accession with a remark that
"As soon as the law and order in Kashmir restored the question of states accession should be decided by reference to the people."
Lord Mount Battens did to contradictory things. On the one hand he accepted the merger; on the other hand he put the conditions for merger. The remark of Lord Mount Batten was superfluous and in violation of provision of ‘India (Independence) Act’ passed by British Parliament. The act did not provide for plebiscite in any of the princely states for deciding the issue of merger. It only called upon the rulers of princely States to decide whether to merge with India or Pakistan.
 It was a grave Constitutional error on the part of Lord Mount Battens. India has paid heavy Political price for that error in the term of 5 decades old frictional relation with Pakistan.

Let's pray for those who lost their lives and their eyesight in ongoing turmoil in Kashmir: Shah Faesal, IAS

By on Sunday, July 17, 2016
Mr Shah Faesal’s photograph comparing with Hizbul commander, Burhan Wani’s pictures, angered to Mr Faesal who has stated that he will resign. Mr Shah Faesal rebuked the media through his facebook post. The successful youths’ photos of the valley and their work’s -- both were collated on media with Burhan Wani's status.

"By juxtaposing my photos with the images of a slain militant commander, a section of national media has once again fallen back upon its conventional savagery that cashes on falsehoods, divides people and creates more hatred.
At a moment when Kashmir is mourning its dead, the propaganda and provocation being dished out from red and blue newsrooms is breeding more alienation and anger in Kashmir than what Indian state can manage.
Personal vulnerability apart, the very fact of becoming a part of a ridiculous debate is something which has disturbed me very much. Have I joined IAS to do a job or to become a part of your sadistic propaganda machine? In fact when I qualified this exam I never thought of spending my whole life scratching the desk and if this nonsense around me continues, I might prefer to resign sooner than later.
I am adding to what my younger colleague Yasin Chaudhary had said earlier in his Facebook post. ZeeNews Aaj Tak TimesNow and NewsX are not going to tell you the truth about Kashmir. Please mind your head.
No Government would want to hurt it's people and when a state kills and maims it's own citizens, it's self-injury and self-decimation of the worst sort, it makes the body-politic bleed as well. So no Government can distance itself from the pain of it's people and all out efforts are being made to contain this crisis and reach out to youth. It is going to take time.
Till then we have to steer safe from spoilers who want to set Kashmir valley on fire just for the sake of TRP.
Let's pray for those who lost their lives and their eyesight in the ongoing turmoil in Kashmir and stand by one another in this moment of truth. I didn't have net access all this while and today once I saw my timeline, I realised it was the time to speak up. Inalillahi wa Ina-ilaihi rajioon."

Shah Faesal, 33, hails from Kupwara, Jammu and Kashmir. He had qualified Civil Service Examination held by Union Public Service Commission during year 2009. Mr Faesal is director at education department Jammu and Kashmir.
Mr faesal's interview here with media has some excerpts after he became topper of civil service exam.
My success has broken a stereotype about my commu­nity. I hope I have set a prece­dent for the people of my State and helped inspire more Kash­miris to appear for civils.
I would like to serve my state by reducing the gap between the people and admin­istration. I have been a victim of insur­gency and understand Kash­mir’s problems. My father (Gulam Rasool Shah), a school teacher, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in 2002, just three days before my pre-medical exam.
Mr faesal wrote in his post, “The national media tagged my picture with a terrorist tried to divide the people. He has written that when Kashmir mourns over the deaths, the alienation among Kashmiris is being poured into the news rooms.”
Faesal further wrote, “I have been tormented with the running meaningless talks in media. Had I become an IAS that one day I were a part of media disinformation?” He has further written that if the media run so, he will resign.
Faesal has written his status that we should sideline from those people who are ready to burn Kashmir valley for gaining TRP only. We should pray for those who have lost their lives and eyes in this violence.

Truck through crowds killed at least 84 people along Nice's beachfront

By on Friday, July 15, 2016

NICE, France — A Tunisian living in France drove a large truck through crowds celebrating Bastille Day along Nice's beachfront, killing at least 84 people, many of them children, according to police and hospital officials. The slaughter ended only after police killed the armed attacker in a hail of bullets.
French leaders on Friday extended the country's 9-month-old state of emergency and vowed to deploy thousands of police reservists on the streets after Thursday night's massacre of pedestrians leaving a fireworks display for France's independence day.
Video shot by bystanders shows the truck coming under police gunfire as it drives through an intersection into the pedestrian promenade. Crowds flee in panic, taking shelter in shops, hotels or leaping off the elevated pavement onto the beach below. Police finally surround the stationary truck and fatally shoot its driver.
Police identified the attacker as Mohamed Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Nice resident, and said he had drawn a gun on them. The truck's front windshield was riddled with bullets.
Video footage showed the truck driving slowly down the southern French city's famous, palm tree-lined Promenade des Anglais boulevard, which had been sealed off and turned into a pedestrian-only party zone.
German tourist Richard Gutjahr filmed the moment when an unidentified motorcyclist rode alongside the truck and grabbed hold of the driver's door as two other police officers on foot nearby fired a single shot each at the driver's windscreen. But the truck accelerated through an intersection into screaming crowds, where Gutjahr could hear the final confrontation involving 15 to 20 seconds of gunfire.

By on Friday, July 15, 2016

Pakistan does not want to lose any chance for gaining momentum on the issue of killed Burhan Wani Hizbul commander in Kashmir. So the prime minister of Pakistan called the joint session of parliament to discuss on the Kashmir state in India. It is the first time in Pakistani history when the joint session has been called for the Indian Kashmir issue; not only has this Burhan Wani been declared the martyr in Pakistan.

The foreign ministry has said that the backing powers behind the Kashmir violence will not be spared. The foreign ministry said giving edification to Pakistan that it should think about maintaining its home, stop the terror activities operating across the border, and give up the crocodile tears.
Pakistan has demanded an independent and transparent probe on the Kashmir violence in united nation despite rebuke of India. Pakistan has said that the situation of Kashmir is endangering the peace and security. Maliha Lodhi UN ambassador of Pakistan met with under secretary Edmond mullet and emphasized for the probe.
Pakistani PM, Nawaz Sharif, has announced the black day on Tuesday next week. He has said that the black day will be in Pakistan in support of those killed by Indian army in Kashmir. The Pakistani PM had dubbed the wrong action by Indian army on killing of Hizbul commander.

 It meant that the Congress Government in the State will be restored because the Congress Government was in existence there earlier and Nabam Tuki was the Chief Minister of state.
The 5 Judges bench of Supreme Court gave this verdict and were unanimous on the decision.
Supreme Court said, ”the call of premature assembly session its procedure both were unconstitutional decision of state governor."
1. The governor cannot function of his own will setting aside the rules and regulations of assembly and constitutional provisions.
2. The cabinet advises governor to work under constitution; but the governor ignored the advice of cabinet in this case and took decision.
3. If the governor was confident about the circumstances and wherever he did not think fit to accept the advice of cabinet; he should refer the matter to the President -- but he took his own decision.
4. If the governor seemed that the state government was in short majority, he can say to prove its majority on floor test in assembly; but he called the assembly session to discuss the motion against the Speaker.
5. The governor of state should not be the part of political controversies. The circumstances that prevailed in the state made the matter wholly political circus.
The governor of state misused the conferred constitutional powers which he had vested.

The Constitution crises in the state began last year when 21 including (2 independent) of the 47 law makers of congress government were rebellion against his own party Chief Minister in 60 members assembly seats of Arunachal Pradesh. 
The matter is between Nabam Tuki and his rival Kalikho Pul.  Pul had intended to be the CM of State replacing Mr. Tuki; consequently the President rule was imposed in the state on 26 January 2016.
Nabam Tuki the former CM of State and Congress Leader
Tuki, the former CM of state and Congress leader, has expressed his pleasure over the Apex Court decision.
 Tuki said, ‘the Apex Court has saved the democracy.” He said he got Justice from Supreme Court. Now he will discuss the matter with 47 Congress Law makers; later the future strategy will be decided.
Rashid Alvi Congress Leader
Congress leader Rashid Alvi said on Supreme Court’s decision, “it is a win of constitution and democracy.” He said that the Union Government has created such situation which became a threat to democracy in the country. The Governors of state are functioning on the Guidance of Centre. The state governors seem the worker of RSS.
