there is Nothing called Father of Nation

Mahatma Gandhi cannot be accorded the 'Father of the Nation' title by the government as the Constitution does not permit any titles except educational and military ones, the Home Ministry has said. In an RTI response to Lucknow-based student Aishwarya Parashar, the Home Ministry told her that no action was taken on her plea to the President to declare Mahatma Gandhi as 'Father of the Nation' because Article 18 (1) of the Constitution does not permit any titles except education and military ones.

Aishwarya had filed number of RTI petitions seeking details about Mahatma Gandhi and the reasons of referring him as Father of the Nation. In response, she was told that no such title has been accorded to Mahatma Gandhi. Driven by a patriot zeal, Class VI student Aishwarya wrote to the then President Pratibha Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to issue a notification declaring Mahatma Gandhi as 'Father of the Nation'.
Aishwarya had filed an RTI petition seeking to know the action taken on her plea by the President and the Prime Minister. The application was transferred to the Home Ministry with instructions to explain the action taken on her plea. In its response, the Home Ministry told Aishwarya the above mentioned reason why the title of 'Father of the Nation' cannot be accorded to Mahatma Gandhi.

FIR to be filed against former CM of Goa

chief minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday said that the Goa government will file FIR against the former chief minister Digambar kamat, pratapsingh rane, former mines director arvind lolienkar and other officials  connected with the mines department in connection with the illegal mining activities.

 Justice M B Shah Commission has said that all 90 mines operating in Goa are illegal as they are not only functioning without the mandatory permission of National Board of Wildlife, but in violation of Supreme Court orders too.The Commission has pointed out that politicians and bureaucrats have connived to allow such illegalities in which all the 90 mines which were operational as on December 2011 were without approval of standing committee of National Board of Wildlife and was a clear violation of order passed by the Supreme Court and also some specific conditions stipulated by the Ministry of Environment and Forests..

The Commission has recommended that mines, which are running without approval should be stopped and the money should be recovered at the rate of export price or market price whichever is applicable.

Mr Parrikar stated that since the  bureau of  mines and the ministry of environment and forests were also involved in the issue,  he did not expect anything positive  from those who were themselves involved in the illegal mining activity

the decision is welcomed by common man, but the real question is that the culprits will be punished or not, as it is normal in India to see long inquiries, but finally political goons manage to escape from clutches of Law

Congress party created History in Goa

BJP may claim itself to a party with difference, but in reality, it is the Congress party in Goa has really proved it self a party with difference. its the first time in the  history of Indian politics  when any National political party has withdraw its candidate from a bye-poll election.

Congress,  a major opposition party in State would have tried hard to secure  two digit total of seats  in the 40 member Goa state assembly. however, The present decisions  of Congress has resulted in victory of BJP candidate unopposed, as a apart from congress candidate independent candidate Ramakant Borkar has also withdraw his candidature. 

Bharatiya Janata Party candidate Alina Saldhana has been declared as unopposed elected candidate in the Cortalim by-poll by the elections commission of India informed joint electoral officer of Goa Narayan Navti on Monday

the political development has stamped the congress party as boneless, as first time any national party has decided to run away from a by-poll.

Reacting sharply to the withdrawal of congress candidate Raymond De Sa’s nomination papers for Cortalim by-polls, Dabolim MLA and former Cortalim Mla Mauvin Gudinho on Monday lashed out at the internal politics within his own party. He informed that he had refused the offer to become campaign chief for the bye-polls due to the party’s internal politics.

Where as Chief minister Manohar parrikar expressed his happiness over the political development. However Parrikar made clarified that the party has not tried to convince any candidate for withdrawal,  the party was confident of Alina Saldhana's victory in Cortalim, as two heavyweight Goan politicians  Churchill Alemao and Mickey Pacheco were out of picture.

Cortalim bye-Poll

Cortalim bye-Poll will make BJP to 21 or congress to double digit? it will give a chance to regional party or independent candidate? answer depends on People of Cortalim constituency. 

Alina Saldanha has filed her nomination on Monday as a candidate of the Bharatiya Janata  party for Cortalim Bye-poll in the presence of chief minister Manohar Parrikar, power minister Milind Naik and other party leaders.

The election will be held on the 2nd of June 2nd and the last date for filing nominations is fixed 16th May.

It may be recalled that the Cortalim assembly seat fell vacant after the sudden death of MLA Matanhy Saldanha who died of cardiac arrest on the 21st of March. The Bharatiya Janata party confirmed Alina Saldanha’s candidature on Sunday.

After filing her nomination, Alina Saldanha stated that she would definitely live up to the expectations of her husband and that the issues pertaining to Cortalim constituency would be taken up by her on priority.

While on other side of the battle field Major opposition Party (With only 9 MLA’s) is yet not able to decide its candidate. The heavy weight politician and losing candidate in Navelim Constituency Mr. Churchill Alemao is also trying hard to get party ticket.

But congress is yet to open its card. Congress spokes person Jitendra Deshprabhu said, on Monday that party will soon declare its candidates and the list of probable candidates it already sent to Highcommand.

Here it is important to mention that the Jitendra Deshprabhu has asked the people to forgive the Congress party for alienating them in the past and stated that the party would reach out to like-minded parties to support them in their endeavor to safeguard secularism in the state.

Congress party, the oldest Indian Political party has continued its tradition of using Secularism word for election. The congress party hardly had fought without it’s so called secularism issue.

The party had also tried hard to use secularism issue in recently held assembly election, but people of Goa prefer change the political scenario in the state.

Beside BJP and Congress it would important to see the role of UGDP and Goa vikas Party who’s candidate in last election stood on 2nd and 3rd position, in which congress candidate was trailing on 4th position.

Funny manifesto of Congress

In a major gaffe, the Congress poll manifesto released  on Monday ( 20th Feb), has promised a bridge in the landlocked Neura village, with no river or rivulet anywhere near it !

The glaring error was pointed out by media persons, moments after the Congress manifesto for the March 3 polls was released by congress.

The Congress manifesto makes a mention about the Parallel Zuari bridge to be be built along with bridges at Terekhol, Talpona, Galgibag, Chodan, Cavelossim, Assolna, Diwar, Mandovi, Madkai and Neura, in the ‘Infrastructucture section.
However, it is surprising to note that the village of Neura in st andre area does not have any rivulet ! The requirement of a bridge therefor does not arise.  congress party is thus trying to fool the  the goan voters  with totally irrelevant promises.

When chief minister Digambar Kamat was asked to clarify how a bridge could be built in in the landlocked region of Neura, kamat stumbled saying that there must be someplace in Neura, where a bridge might be necessary thus showing the credibility of a chief minister of goa revealing that he is totally unaware of a village called neura existing in goa.
It was the former GPCC president and Shiroda candidate Subhash Shirodkar who stepped in and said that Neura village located 15 kms from the states capital Panaji might  have been included by accident and that it was the village of Cortalim which adjoins the Zuari river in South Goa district which was supposed to be included in the manifesto.

Nevertheless, the Congress has again proved how negligent it is about the reality and how greedy it is for power by making irrelevant promises in its elections manifesto.

TMC ready to ally with the corrupt

Trinamool Congress party has cunningly started fooling Goan’s aiming to put a few votes in their pockets. Trinamool congress is a party, which had supported UPA2 Govt. led by congress in the centre. However, this ‘chameleon’ party which has now come to Goa, has accused Congress party as the most corrupt party in Goa. The state president of Trinamool Congress Dr. Wilfred Dsouza has from the day one of party campaign accused BJP as communal and congress as most Corrupt party.

Trinamool has earlier announced that they will file candidate in all 40 constituencies but the poor party ended up filing only 22 candidates. Trinamool had time and again announced that they will not form alliance with any party after election to form a Govt.  but on Wednesday (15 feb) Dr. Wilfred Dsouza in a press conference said his party will never take help of BJP after election but it will prefer Congress party as alliance partner to form a Govt. after election.

This statement of Trinamool congress exposes its double slandereds. The party is just fooling Goan’s by calling congress the most corrupt party on one hand  and on the other hand it is  ready to join hands with the same corrupt party for power. The actual aim of TMC is only to capture power.

The tiny state of Goa has seen mass destruction of beautiful nature, mounting corruption and scams, and burden of inflation and unemployment. Goans are not so foolish as cunning politicians think. People of Goa know which party does what, the state has learned many lessons after watching the performance of successive state govt.s. They know that some so called secular parties are actually creating division in society with the so called secular agenda, and in the name of so called secular politics these parties create a record of scams.

Coming back to trinamool congress’s pitiful condition, congress leaders in state already said that trinamool has no base in Goa. congress party surly would have thought of pre-poll alliance if TMC had any strength in Goa

This funny TMC party  has accused congress of corruption. And Dr. Willy said Shah commission report is already leaked and according to the preliminary report state exchequer has suffered nearly 423 million dollar’s loss. So Dr. willy who has promised to give corruption free Govt to Goans is ready to Join Hand with the same Congress.

What an irony!

Tears for vote

कांग्रेस पार्टी जो अपने आप को सेकुलर पार्टी बताती है, वो सही मायने में धर्मवादी और जातीयवादी पार्टी है. यह साबित करने के लिए विरोधियो के भाषणों की सहायता लेने की जरुरत भी नहीं है. राजकीय विश्लेषको का हमेशा से ही मानना है की कांग्रेस जो सेकुलर के नाम से राजकारण ( सत्ताकरण ) करती आये है, असल में सेकुलर की चादर ओढ़ कर धर्मवादी राजकारण कर रही है. जो सही मेमे में देश की एकात्मता के लिए घटक है.

उत्तर प्रदेश में चल रहे चुनावो में कांग्रेस के सलमान खुर्शीद जी ने पहले आरक्षण का तीर चलाया फिर और अब मुस्लिम वोटो के लिए बाटला हाउस एन्कोउन्टर का मुद्दा उठाकर हस्यास्पद विधान किये  और फिर मुकर भी गए. कानून मंत्री सलमान खुर्शीदजी ने  सभा में कहा की बाटला हाउस एन्कोउन्टर की तस्वीरे जब सोनियाजी को दिखाई तो वो फुट बड़ी और कहा ये तस्वीरे मुझे मत दिखाना वजिरआजम (प्रधानमंत्री) से बात करो. ये बयांन दिने के बाद कई कांग्रेससियो ने कहा सोनिया गाँधी तस्वीर देख के नहीं रोई.  

खुद कांग्रेस महासचिव दिग्विजय सिंह ने कहा की " सोनिया गाँधी तो नहीं रोई". खैर सोनियाजी के रोने या हसने से देश का भला तो होना है नहीं. यहाँ लाख टके का सवाल तो यह है जिस बाटला हाउस एन्कोउन्टर में आंतकियो से मुद्मेद करते हुए शहीद हुए पुलीस अफसरों को अशोक चक्र से नवाजा गया, उसी पर कांग्रेस ठीक चुनाव के दिनों में सियासत कर रही है. क्यों? सिर्फ चंद मुस्लिम वोटो के लिए येह आसुवो को भी चुनावी बाजार में घसीटा जा रहा है.

जिस बाटला हाउस एन्कोउन्टर पर कांग्रेस महासचिव दिग्विजय सिंह और सलमान खुर्शीद साहब सवाल उठा रहे है उसे गृहमंत्री पि. चिदंबरम ने इसी मुठभेड़ को असली करार दिया है. जरा सोचिये मुस्लिम वोट बटोरने के लिए अपने ही कार्यकाल में हुए एन्कोउन्टर को फर्जी कह ने वाले कांग्रेस सदस्य, येही एन्कोउन्टर भाजपा के समय हुवा होता तो बीजेपी को धर्मवादी कह कर खूब सियासत करते नजर आते.

सोनिया गाँधी अपने आसूवो पे स्पष्टीकरण देकर देश को बताती क्यों नहीं की, वो कब कब रोई और क्यों रोई? या सिर्फ वोट हासिल करने के सलमान खुर्शीद ने आसुवो का मजाक बनाया है?

जब कांग्रेस ने चुनावी मैदान में सोनियाजी के  आसूवो  को उतरा तब बीजेपी के प्रवक्ता अब्बास नकवी साब ने कहा के कांग्रेस सिर्फ आतंकियों के मरने पर ही रोति है तभी तो आज तक कई आतंकवादियों को फांसी नहीं दी जा रही है? 
cry  cry  इतना cry करते है kai को.......
बीजेपी के आलावा समाजवादीने भी  आसूवो के सिससत पर कांग्रेस पर तीखा वार किया. 
खैर आम जनता का पूछना यह है की इतनी भावना जो फुट फुट के आसू निकलती है वो भावना मुंबई हमले में कहा थी? जब देश का नाम दुनिया भर में सिर्फ घोटालो और भ्रष्टाचार के कारन बदनाम हुआ तब ये आसू निकले थे? या सिर्फ यह घडियाली आसू है?

Congress: Casteist and Communal

Goa Congress is showing some  mildness in state ahead of the looming polls. The party which is steeped on allegation of corruption is now trying to stand on a base of dirty politics of caste and religion issues.  Actually,  It is not surprising to see congress as communal party. The so called secular of congress is always been used by its so called secular leaders to create a valley of difference between the people.  The central government under Congress lost its credibility  over corruption issues and so, had raised unconstitutional issue of reservations for minorities.

Recently,  Goa  Rajyasabha MP Shantaram Naik said at congress press conference,  that Goa BJP is trying to suppress Bahujan Samaj (OBC) in Goa.  Naik tried to gain political mileage from internal dispute in the  BJP over  not giving state assembly election  ticket to North Goa MP Sripad Naik. However,  Shantaram Naik totally failed to answer queries in same press conference about rampant illegal mining in Goa under  Congress reign.

Congress party  has also  created Medium of Instruction issue ( which is for suppressing mother tongue or local languages, and to give English medium education a financial aid ) which has been used as tool by a few congressman to lure and divide the  community in Goa. When journalists asked whether  MoI issue is Congress Government’s  achievement Shantaram Naik was seen helpless.    

In Goa congress party, with its insensitive and helpless leaders, has failed to solve local issues. In last five years,  Goa saw major scams like illegal mining, GIDC land allotment, the Drug-Nexus was a big stain on congress led Govt.  The Congress rule also failed to manage Balli agitation of ST community, which saw 2 peoples die. The tourism minister was also besieged by allegation of land scam, while Helath department was always being criticized for wrongful recruitment policy and corruption. The PWD minister was blamed for water tank scam. Whereas liquor scam and other corruption cases were a few more blots on Congress led Govt. in Goa.

Shantaram Naik might be left with no option to go before the  public so he might satisfy himself with narrow minded politics of raising caste base issues.

In a tit for tat policy,  BJP leader Venkayya Naidu slammedCcongress MP Shantaram Naik for his low level politics. He asked , if congress is so worried about OBC then why congress has not made obc leader the chief minister of Goa.

MP Shantaram was also confronted by opposition leader Manohar Parrikar stating that empty vessel make too much noise in context of Shantaram Naiks OBC issue. Parrikar made it clear that in Goa BJP has more MLA from OBC and it was the BJP who first  gave leadership to OBC and not the corrupt congress. He also blamed congress for high level of corruption and low level caste base politics.

Rahul, congress and Shoe

सोमवार २३ जानवरों को उत्तराखंड में भावी प्रधानमंत्री माननीय श्री राहुल गाँधी पर जूता फेंकने का प्रयास किया गया. कांग्रेस के नेताओ ने इसका पूरी वफ़ादारी से निषेध किया. कई कांग्रेसवासियों को मौका था की भाजपा पर आरोप लगाये, तो बस देर किस बात की? कांग्रेस की तरफ से इस घटना की पूरी तहकीकात की मांग की गयी.. लेकिन कांग्रेस ने तहकीकात से पहले ही इसमें भाजपा का हाथ होने का संशय भी व्यक्त किया. 

कांग्रेस के प्रवक्ता  राशीद अल्वी जी को राहुल जी के मुखकमल की तरफ जूते ने किये हवाई उडान का सूत्रधार बीजेपी लगा, यह स्वाभाविक है. क्यों की देश में घटने वाले कई  महत्वपूर्ण घटना में कांग्रेस के एक महासचीव् जो की प्रवक्ता भी नहीं है उन्हें बीजेपी या RRS का हाथ दिकता है.

खैर उनकी बात को देश भी गंभीरता से नहीं लेता है. :)

तो राशीद  अल्वी साहब ने कुछ इन शब्दों में निषेद करते हुए कड़ी और गंभीर तहकीकात की माग की - उत्तराखंड में बीजेपी की सर्कार है. राहुल जी को जेड प्लस सुरक्षा व्यवस्ता दी गयी है, फिर भी उनके पास जूता फेकने वाला व्यक्ति पहुच पाता  है, यह गंभीर बात है, और इस बात की कड़ी तहकीकात होनी चाहिए"

अब इसी बात को कुछ अलग नजरिये से भी देखते है, देश में कांग्रेस नेतृव की सरकार है, और भ्रष्टाचार के खिलाप लड़ने वाले अरविन्द केजरीवाल पर जब हमला होता है तो कांग्रेस इस बात को कुछ अलग अंदाज़ में बयाँ करते है, तब कड़ी आलोचना और तहकीकात ये शब्द कही गुमनाम से लगते है.

खैर छोड़ो, कांग्रेस के यह नेता जो इस घटना की कड़ी तहकीकात की मांग कर रहे है, वो गृहमंत्री के ऊपर जब गंभीर आरोप लगते है तो उस बात को शिद्दत से उठाकर कड़ी मांग करते दिखाई नहीं देते.

भ्रष्टाचार के मुद्दों पर कांग्रेस पार्टी कड़ी तहकीकात की मांग नहीं कर पति है, २जी मामले में संसद स्थगित करने के बाद कही जाकर JPC की तहकीकात हुई थी. घोटालो में भी सरकार को न्यायव्यवस्था की फटकार सुनानी पड़ी. ये क्या गर्व की बात है?
