It said that President Ramnath Kovind has taken this decision after talking over with Chief Justice of Supreme Court Sharad Arvind Bobde.
After the recommendation of collegium, Bar Association of Delhi High Court had gone on strike against this decision on Feb 20.

According to BBC, Mohit Mathur, Bar Association’s President, stated, “Justice Murlidhar is on 3rd place in seniority list of Delhi High Court. If a senior most Judge is transferred, you ought to transfer him by making Chief Justice of any state, but you are sending him on same post.”
The Congress has also put the central government in the dock on the transfer of Justice Muralidhar. Party leader Randeep Surjewala said that as a bench headed by Justice Muralidhar held the BJP leaders and the government responsible for the violence in Delhi, he was transferred from the Delhi High Court in the same night.

Woman journalist in jail barrack with Satyagrahi in UP

By on Thursday, February 20, 2020

I had never thought during my 31 years of life that I shall address you from the jail. It is the 5th day of my jail period in Ghazipur UP. The 4 days experience of women cell of jail is much more lessoning. It is the learning about the country and about me too.
Reading the experiment with the truth by Gandhi these learnings become more condensed. I see that the changing of rulers does not much change the rule if the intention of rulers did not change. This thing is not being said for a party or in connection with the government.
Arresting of 10 onfoot-journeymen including even a journalist are jailed shows what type of ruler's intention are eventually? If our onfoot journey may endanger breaching of peace in the state or the country,  should not there have considered over this question how much weak is the peace of the state?
More than 40 women are in the two barracks in the jail while mere 6 prisoners can accommodate in a barrack. Even the officer of this jail accepts that there is the shortage of amenities. Maximum women are in captivity of dowry harassment cases. Even a few of them are those whose cases are under trial for the past five years, but there is no decision yet. Five years kept in jail, without being a culprit? Unless the crime is proved, they all are not culprit. If let the captive by the court are acquitted declaring them innocents, who will return them their five precious years?
A few of the women are here, whose bail have been granted; but none are who file their bail-bond. Whose responsibility is of these?  Is it of none? You will see such India inside the jail which is extremely helpless. These women see me with full of expectation.They seem that I shall do something better for them. They say just as you are kept in jail without an offence we all are here. If a woman is telling the truth, it is the unsuccess of our justice system.
You all are well familiar with the tardy justice system, but this motionless affects how them, they can understand much how violent and inhuman are this.
There is the need to work on the cases of daughter-in-laws to be killed or committing suicide especially.
There is the need of exact counseling. Becoming no mutual harmony among the families can carry them on which verge.
6 of a family members are in jail; one of them lost his life. The little children loss their future and the hefty fees are to be given to the lawyers; mostly non education and lack of knowledge creates the odd conditions. The lawyers, the police and the employees are not trained in this way that the justice should be delivered earliest in the least damages and the things should be dealt by the mediation.
Gandhi writes about his lesson learnt from his first case in Pritoria: ‘I learnt the true advocacy; learnt to extract bright side of human behavior; learnt to go in the heart of human.I could know that the counsel’s duty is to fill the ditch between Furican. This lesson deepen a root in my inner self that the maximum time period of my 20 years advocacy profession passed in my office to conciliate the hundreds of cases. I lost nothing in it—mere money was in deficit that cannot be said, but not lost the spirit."
Our advocates, officers and the employees working in the administration all have the need to learn from this. An incident of yesterday is to mention here. Mr Afzal Ansari, MP of this constituency, came to meet Satyagrahi. Women prison cell barrack was also messaged that he would go there. All the women of barrack in the terse abusive language were ordered that the cloths were being dryered hanging on pegged woods in the craters between the bricks of walls should be removed immediately; my cloths were too there. There were no system of cloth drying. My cloths too were removed, but the MP did not come inside. I was taken to the police superintendent office to meet with them. Mr MP lodged the objection to accommodates me in this way like other captives. He instructed him to provide the amenities separately. He sends all the bed stuff for me from outside, but what for other prisoners?
No amenities are available in the barracks. There is no bathroom to bathe in 12-A. you can bathe in open. The stuff that is brought to the captives’ home from their closeone, or their cloths in plastic bags are supported by hanging on pegs in the wall. There is no almirah or lockers. There is no breakfast daily morning. the two buns and the grams each interval of two days in a week and remaining other days provision are tea.
Such type of muddle I thinks to be in the maximum jails. One more problem what I am able to see here is that is the conversation. There is no quick transit of communication to the captives waiting the bail or other information in the jail. Next day, unless the family members does not reach to them, they swing in the pool of hope and doubts; weeps. I feels this time a big need to reform in the jail improvement and the judicial systems.

We have forsaken our food since Feb13.
It is to inform that we all Satyagrahi with the message of  love, integrity, harmony and fraternity by Gandhi Ji were out on march for 'Nagrik Satyagrah Padyatra' from Chaouri Choura (Gorakhpur) to Rajghat (Delhi) since feb 2.
Having completed our 200 kilometers journey via Mau, Azamgarh, Devaria, from Gorakhpur we all reached in the district Ghazipur.
We were arrested in the presence of heavy police force at the cross section of Sultanpur under Virno police station.
The sparked violence during the  agitation for and against the CAA and the NRC had killed 23  and injured hundreds of people.
It becomes our duty in such condition that we all must stand with those 23 families including all the affected families in the country.
We shall have to maintain Gandhi's Ahimsa, love, harmony among the society in response of the growing  mutual divisive and hatred concept among the society and the country.
Together we shall have to challenge our own self Ahimsa and the fear.
We pose the question to the government that which type of risk the government felt from these 10 bare hands youth whom they lifted and jailed during the journey.
Yours

People are on road; arrogant is not hearing them:Ajay Kumar Lallu, president UPCC

By on Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Kshitiz Kant; Lucknow
Mr Ajay Kumar Lalu, UP State Congress President targeted the BJP by the scathing attack over the Amit Shah's rally. He said’ “The home minister is in trap of ego of power; he is speaking the tongue of dictator; whether the section 144 is mere for the people -- BJP, do reply to the public; the egoist government is in no mood to hear and nor it is in mood to see the reality. When will Amit Shah  speak over the issues like the women security, the law and order, the price hike, the corruption, the unemployment, the worsen condition of peasants and the declining economy in great fiasco?"
Condemning over the country's constitution blown, he said where the state government, terming the peaceful protest by women against the NRC and the CAA at Lucknow Clock Tower, is illegal; on the other hand it is registering the FIR against them in many serious criminal sections; the situation so worsen that the BJP is shutting down the public toilets to end the demonstration using the police force. How much they may be affronted is shameful?
He raised objection that when the people go on protest peacefully in Lucknow, the police force of Yogi Adityanath makes reference of section 144. Which police station is in the state capital where the FIR against Amit Shah is to be registered today? The state public is keen to know it.
Whether the law enforcement is for the people only? Whether the Home Minister of country is not in purview of law? He said that the law like the CAA is against the spirit of constitution of India. It is a conspiracy to change the constitution of India into the federal legislation. The congress party, at any cost, shall not let die the spirit of constitution of India.
 He added that it is a Nagpuriyan agenda. Any law against our culture of sharing the martyrdom, the heritage and the secularity of our constitution shall not be accepted by the people of country.
He said that Amit Shah should be aware that the country is never led by the arrogant language and nor it shall be in future. Our culture is to hear all voice; to speak about all. The dictatorship's tongue is being counter by the people on the road, but the arrogants are not looking at and nor they are hearing the clamour. The countrymen are at the crossroad to save the constitution.

Women protest at Lucknow Clock Tower

By on Sunday, January 19, 2020

Kshitiz Kant;Lucknow
Women are staging Dharna at Lucknow clock tower in the area of old city of Nawabs since January 17th this week. 
This campaign is going on in protest against the NRC and the CAA. 
On 19 Th of December last year a huge mass swarmed in the city first peacefully then they turned violent and vandalised the public property.
Many people had been arrested in the case of stone pelting and torching of many vehicles parked in the Parivartan Chowk. They are yet in the jail and CM Yogi had asserted the loss of property to be recovered by bidding the property of these miscreats involved in the violence.
The women in the sivering cold winter are adamant in shouting slogans 'Dam Hai Kitna Daman Me Tere, Dekh Liya Hai Dekhenge' in the open sky. 
The local administration has not permitted them for the protest and all the amenities like public toilets, drinking water, and light at the place where Dharan is going on have been stopped.
Police to maintain the law and order in the area penalised the fines over the vehicles like two and the four wheelers.
About the 4 to 5 hundreds women are constantly staging Dharna day and night.
The women protest at clock tower has been termed an arranged Dharna by Congress and Samajwadi Party, said by Dr Chandra Mohan, state spokesperson to the BJP. He said that actually the miscreants under the patronage of SP and Congress turned violent during the anti-CAA agitation in the month of December last year. The state BJP government have taken stern action against these  accused and the property of them by identifying their involvement is being forfeited to recover the loss incurred during the violence.   
Mr Chandra Mohan alleged that the SP and the Congress are disturbed with the action taken; consequently, to prevent the taken action, they have managed this protest at the Lucknow Clock Tower.
He added that the people from the state have understood the foul role or masterminding of these parties. This is the reason why a limited crowd of women was constantly seen after all luring steps of these parties which were not able to convince a mass swarming of women from home for staging Dharna.
These Muslim women are not able to garner the support of their own family if let leave the public.

 Mr Chandra Mohan added that the SP, the BSP, and the Congress – all have had make the Muslims always puppet. These parties whenever think swipe Muslim women ahead, but do nothing for their betterment.



Who is civil referee in city of Nawabs?

By on Sunday, January 19, 2020
Yogi Adityanath, CMUP, termed police commissioner system in Lucknow and Gautambudh Nagar is a big step in police reform in the past 50 years. CM said that the population above 10 lacs confers the commissioner system as mentioned in police act but there was no political spirit of implementing so far so it could not be resulted in this way. It is correct that Yogi Government has done big experiment in the wake of police reform, but how much it shall affirmative and how much it shall control the crime in the two districts of the state involves many questions too.
The new system shall bring a big change of the kind that the police commissioner, the post is ADG level officer, shall hold hold many important powers under the IPC and the CrPC. The officers of commissioner level in new system as police commissioner, Additional Police Commissioner, Dy Commissioner of police and Assistant Commissioner of police -- all have been conferred the legal power of magistrate under the 15 regulations. Gunda Act, the prison and jail regulation, the fire service act, toxic act etc have been of exercising powers to these officers. However the arms act and the issuance of arms license have not been vested in the power of these officers.
The police commissioner after holding these powers shall now be more powerful than not be the associate officer of like the district magistrate in old system. There had been a big tussle for the implementing the commissnery system between the IPS and the IAS cadre. Being the most influential in government the IAS cadre got this system implementing slipped long time. Unofficially many IPS and IAS officers admit it.
Even the former IPS officer are praising openly the decision of Yogi Government, on the other hand many former IAS officers are raising question too. They think that the system shall enhance the police power, but it may disbalance too the powers at the district level. They say whatever the people convey, communicate or talk through the district magistrate to the government may create a discontinuity. The former chief secretary, Yogendra Narain, says that if there took any failure under civil aspect at the police level, the DM always used to represent on the spot as a delegate of government in the district. After the implementation of new system the communication or talk shall not be as earlier was. He says wherever this system in the districts has been implemented; it has not brought any big changes yet there.
Another former chief secretary, Alok Ranjan too, did not admit this new system a big changer. He say that the present system is not better than the DM and the SSP system, the old do have better 'Check and the Balance' which is not possible in the commissioner system. Another former IAS officer say, “it is correct to this extent that single IPS officer was controlling the law and order in Lucknow so far now 14 IPS shall control it, but this shall give the advantages in the ideal condition.if these 14 officers shall work earnestly with the commissioner, then O.K. – but in the state it is in tradition that the every officer has its own god father. If such condition kept on bickering, on every matter 12 to 14 mind set up shall support their interests. It’s an experiment; the forthcoming time shall prove clearly the entire situation.
However IPS lobby is very much please with the decision of Yogi Government. Former DGP, Arvind Jain, with no hesitation, says, “It’s a historical decision. The decision could not be implemented under the pressure of IAS lobby. We have to uphold that the time is to overcome from the police act 1861.” The former DGP and now the BJP leader, Brijlal says that “the decision has broken the legend that the commissioner system in Lucknow cannot be implemented.” The former DGP, KL Gupta praising CM Yogi Adityanath says that, “I shall greet Chief Minister Ji that he took a bold step. The matter is in pending since 1977. If the system had been implemented in the 71 cities of the different states, why it should not be in the UP?”
Mr Vikram Singh, another former DGP of UP, says ahead, “it is not less than a revolution. We pay our gratitude to CM Ji. Several commissions had recommended this system. After the implementation it will assist public convenience amply.”
But the former IAS officer, SP Singh, sees it in different way, “Propagandizing it by IPS officers as a win of achievement in rights struggle is beyond from my understanding. Where a SSP commanded whole district of Lucknow so far, the 14 IPS officers shall be in half of the city in new system; namely, every two police stations shall be in control of an IPS officer. It means that the importance of CO and the SHO shall be abridged.we want to see it that the decision of CM shall enhance the police efficiency or the insult of IAS cadre. We will review the decision after 6 months.
Some of the analysts are not agreed upon this change to be characterised as the IPS-IAS rift. They feel that it should be seen in the way of reforms, but the political parties are seeing it from the political angle. Samjwadi party said it a stunt of diverting the public heed. Congress said it bogus and Mayawati gave advice to the government to work by overcoming from the party base politics. She said mere changing the system in a few cities cannot maintain law and order.
Exactly before this change police commissioner system was announced to commence in Kanpur during 1976-77, but it could not implemented. IPS and PPS association had sent its proposal many times to government. Eventually the governor, Ram Nike, on September 27, 2018 recommended implementing this system to the big cities Lucknow, Kanpur, and Ghaziabad above 20 lacs population like pilot project, the government too was looked serious on this issue.
The commissioner system shall provide easiest way to take action against the encroachers, gangsters and the goons, and give many advantages like clamping of section 144, and curfew, but the fearsome people feel that the aggrieved person can make their access to the DM. Because there were no fear of detaining or of being tortured; but how shall the men will tell the agony by going to an IPS officer when he cannot courage to go to police station? why the faith lacking prevailed among the people, one of the basic cause also can be said that the police make collusion with local influential persons and the cases of torture and crime against them are not registered under the pressure of high hands. The behavioral atmosphere in the police station and in the collector office is fully different -- the first creates a fear paradigm in the aggrieved person; the later encourages them to convey its pang to the civil officers.
They feel that new system is nothing more than the fulfilling of sentimental old demand of the police officials and if the character of police and its working system were not overhaul with the implementing, there are no advantages of it. 
The Yogi Government is in power today on the issues of law and order, but NCRB status reveals that the state government was failed to improve the situation on the issue. The gross crimes count registered in the state in 2018 had been 5,85157 which is 12 per cent of the crimes in the country. The crime against women had been at the top counting 59445 in the Uttar Pradesh. The economic crimes record reveals 14.6% at the top in the Uttar Pradesh.The crimes against urban women in UP the Lucknow is on the 4th place.
More than 3000 encounters on the name of law and order front in spite of being no solid control is showing a big phase of turning into the weakness of Yogi Government. The reason behind it is the working culture of police and its political patronage. The Yogi government exactly after the taking power tried to change the condition. In the starting days Yogi himself, the CM, looked at  the inspection, cleansing in the police station, giving the drinking water with the molasses to the aggrieved person  on several occasions, but the corrupted police system swallowed his ethics as whole. The new police system shall be able to show its effect or like the other programmes shall it be output that will be proved later, yet there are the greetings going on by the police officers to tell CM it a revolutionary step!

RTI is not enough to disclose political fund?

By on Monday, January 13, 2020

The State Bank of India has denied to divulge the buyer’s name of  Rs above one crores denomination bonds who had bought to donate in election. It is important that the CIC central information commission had, two days ago, asked the Union Government who had demanded to keep the donor's’ name under electoral bond scheme to be classified.
Anjali Bharadwaj, the social worker who is carrying out a campaign for the accountability and the transparency, had asked four questions from SBI under the law of Right to Information Act. The questions are as follows: Since January 2, 2018 till the application filed date, how many bonds were sold; how much of cost price these were; the numbers of 'denomination bonds' under the price range worth Rs above one crore; and who were the buyers? The questions were queried from the 29 branches of SBI.
23 of the 29 branches replied. The bonds 11,770 of worth Rs 5936.7 crore have been sold. The 5463 bonds are worth of one crore denomination; namely, the gross fund of 92 per cent was donated from the bonds of Rs one crore. The six branches of banks have not yet sent their replies.
All the branches of SBI did not informed to having told the reasons of secrecy of doners and made reference to the sections 8-1(e) and 8-1(j) of RTI act. Anjali Bharadwaj said, “ When the government was drafting the electoral bond scheme, the first of scheme texture it had been decided that who bought the bonds would be out of the purview of RTI, but we are aware that in the final draft texture of the scheme it was not added. It has been removed. It is clear what we have asked the information – all are under the perview of law.
It is important that the CIC had directed to the government about to tell who had demanded to keep secret the donor's name through electoral bod scheme. The CIC had expressed it displeasure over this – that the filed RTI in this connection are replied half-baked. On Venktesh Naik, RTI worker who filed an appeal, Information Commissioner, Mr Suresh Chandra, had issued notice to the Public Information Officers of economic wing in finance ministry. The notice said why they should not be punished by the fines of not giving the information within the 30 days.
Anybody, organisation, NGO or corporate can buy fives separate denomination bonds for the election donation under the electoral bonds scheme launched in January 2018 by Modi government. These bonds are in the range of 10 thousand, one lac, 10 lacs and one crore. However there is no limit to donate the party under this scheme.
Amrita Johary, the social worker, is to say whatever the reasons by banks for not disclosing the names are not correct, she says, “it is clear in RTI law that if the asked informations are in the public interest, that should be given.” She adds, “the election is the play of money and the buyers of above Rs one crore are either big industrialists or the influential men who can affect over the policies of government – so this RTI cannot be ignored.”
The information collected through the RTI appeal by Anjali Bharadwaj tells that the maximum bonds had been sold by SBI’s Mumbai branch, which are worth of Rs 1879 crore. The 95 per cent fund for the donation were bought from the Denomination Bonds of Rs one crore. Then the chronologically were bought in ascending order from SBI branch Kolkata, Delhi, and Hyderabad. The 90 per cent of donation fund’s bonds Rs above one crore were bought from here.
According to the organisation, Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), working for the transparency in election, more than 12000 bonds of Rs 6128 crore so far have been bought. The 60 per cent of gross donation through the bonds in the FY 2018-19 was credited in the account of BJP.
There have been controversies on the electoral bonds issue. However the government kept on saying that this scheme was dutiful to prevent the black money in the election. There is to be heard the case in the apex court this month.However SBI is going to open another window to buy electoral bonds since Monday this week. There can be bought electoral bonds since 13 January to 22 January. The founder of ADR Jagdeep Chhoker says, “After the directives of CIC the banks must disclose the donor's’ name. They shall have to disclose the donor’s name; but they are suppressing the information—this shows that there is some bungling.”

 Mr Umashankar Mishra, General Secretary, Hind Majdoor Sabha UP, said that the Yogi government has tacitly forbidden of abiding labourers law. No inquiry is set up even on complaint. There is no compliance of labour laws. The labour department has been made the edentate or the inactive.
Other unions' leader said, "Many industries are not paying minimum wages. the minimum pay revision time in the planned industries like hotel, restaurants and the engineering is going on, but the government is in sleep."
 They added that the committee is yet to be set up. the state government is looked in apathy to implement a restriction of any organisation on complaint. the owners have full liberty to exploit the labours.
The leaders told that many peasants' organisation have declared 'Rural Strike' slogans to meet out their demands. They have pledged not to let move the vegetables and the milk from the rural areas towards cities.
