CBI may Note: Paradip Port celebrates Modi’s 1st Office Anniversary with the Exultation of Compradors!

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Paradip Port authorities have celebrated first anniversary of Mr. Narendra Modi’s regime with the exultation of compradors in matching manner. They have shown how urgent transaction of the Port could wait till the comprador’s choice is ready to be entertained in contravention of rules and norms. When promulgation of land ordinance is being repeated to help favorites step into their grazing grounds in absence of a regular law, why not urgent and participated tenders be kept inoperative under repetition of notices in Paradip Port, the seat of the Modi Government on the Orissa coast?

The Port, which had invited tenders for three Harbor Mobile Cranes (HMCs), has resorted to blatant manipulation to favor a particular firm that had no qualification to be considered. The entire matter is so murky that a CBI investigation is essential to locate why the Port has acted so motivated.

The Port Trust called for tender on revenue sharing basis for three HMCs vide Tender Enq. No. EM.WS.Tech-06 /13 dated 12.08.2014. The participants were: M/s Orissa Stevendores Limited with offer of 4.5% revenue sharing, followed by M/s Karam Chand Thapar & Bros. (CS) Ltd (3.79%) and M/s ACE Commercial & Company Ltd, which was disqualified under the Technical terms of the Port Trust. The tender was discharged by on 04.12.2014.

The tender was re-floated by the Port Trust vide Tender Enq. No. EM/WS/Tech – 06/13 (Vol-I) Dt. 04.12.2014, the same day for the same three numbers of HMCs on the same term of revenue sharing. The two firms – M/s Orissa Stevendores Limited and M/s Karam Chand Thapar & Bros. (CS) Ltd. participated again with offer of 4.5% and 3.79% revenue sharing respectively. OSL even offered to increase its revenue sharing to 5% from 4.5%. The tender was discharged on 13.02.2015.

But, immediately thereafter, on the same day, under mysterious pressure, as if the Port Trust was waiting for another firm to participate, the tender was floated again vide Tender Enq. No. EM/WS/Tech – 06/13 (Vol-II) Dt. 13.02.2015.

A surprising stipulation was added to the extent that the participants each shall install one crane only.

This time, four firms participated as against the same three notified requirements. They were: (1) M/s Orissa Stevendores Limited with the highest offer at 9% revenue sharing, (2) M/s ABC Trans Carries Pvt. Ltd. at 8.8%, (3) M/s Viable Infrastructure & Logistics Pvt. Ltd. at 8.7% and (4) M/s Bothra Shipping Services Pvt. Ltd. at 8.5%.

Bothra was thus at the lowest position and three firms positioned above it – in view of the added stipulation that one crane would be allowed to be installed by each one of the participants, Bothra should have been dismissed from the zone of consideration. But that did not happened. The Chairman of the Port Trust asked it to enhance its offer to the level offered by the H1: Orissa Stevendores Limited. Other two firms were also asked to do the same which they complied with. But the smoky tricks of rendering the earlier two tenders inconsequential became clear when Letter of Intent (LOI)  was issued to all the four participants in blatant disregard to the fact that the Tender was floated for three HMCs only.

The surprise beneficiary is: Bothra Shipping Services Pvt. Ltd, which was the lowest in percentage of offer (8.5%).

Curiously, when the process of procuring an HMC from Germany takes at least six months, the Bothra Shipping Services Pvt. Ltd took only about 20 days and the ship carrying its crane was given priority passage and berthing despite a long wait-list of vessels. The whole issue appears predetermined to serve the Bothra.

Whether or not any ruling political top brass has acted a comprador for Bothra needs be investigated into. And, whether or not the conduct of Paradip Port Trust Chairman in giving Bothra the order for the fourth HMC, when tender was called for three HMCs only, is unauthorized and arbitrary, motivated by payola, needs also be investigated into.

It is incumbent upon Modi administration to locate the comprador, as the matter depicted here makes it clear that the favor shown to Bothra Shipping Services Pvt. Ltd is certainly not a normal transaction.


(Sri Tusarkant Satpathy, a former Banker, is a noted name in both print and social media. His observations on Mr. Modi’s first year on chair is considered very relevant for the general public as well as administration. Therefore, we devote our pages to the same.)

Tusarkant Satpathy:

[Let not a stand-in-comedian star in a full length movie: If, according to Modiji, Dr. Manmohan Singh was a Maunmohan Comedian at the behest of Madam Soniaji, HE(MODIJI) himself is not less at the behest of Nagpur House.]

On 26th May 2014, Modiji had taken oath as Prime Minister of India and assumed official charge of the same w.e.f. 27.5.2014. He started his functioning with an ORDINANCE for appointment of the Principal Secretary in PMO, Sri Nripen Mishra and completed 1st year of his rule on 26th May, 2015 with Land Acquisition Ordinance. Meanwhile he has undertaken “31 U-Turns” as below.
Before last general election, Modiji had thundered “We will pursue Dawood inside Pakistan the same way like USA targeted OSAMA BIN LADEN”.
-But on 05.05.2015, Minister of State, Home Affairs said in the Parliament “We do not know where Dawood is” Which was, exactly told by Congress on 07.05.2013 (So, is there any difference between both of them, Congress and BJP)
The handing over of even one square inch of Indian Territory would be violation of basic structure of the constitution.
As we know from Keshabananda Bharati case, the basic structure of the Constitution cannot be altered. How then it is being altered now with “yes” to land swapping by Modiji? India will lose 10048 acres of land more to Bangladesh spread over 111 enclaves in comparison to 51 enclaves of Bangladesh.
–Why such U-tern?
“It will reach the age of the Finance Minister” (then Sri Chidambaram).
“Whose Age it will reach now”?
-And how the Finance Minister Of State Sri Jayanta Sinha told that “Rupee at 63/64 Vrs Dollar Is good for Economy”
India Born Richard R Verma, did not object when Indian Govt. served Notices on 9000 NGOs because none of them were funded by The US Entities. His indignation surfaced when US Outfits came under scrutiny
-Why Not such outburst by Sri Verma is being taken up by Modiji with his friend, to whom he had very fondly addressed as “Barrack” during the latter’s Delhi Visit , even without the customary Pre-Fixing of “ Mr.”?
Prime Minister Modi is himself the recipient of unprecedented, even Fawning Media Coverage (No National Leader in the past has had his Speech and Mega Events like In the Madison Garden Spectacle Broadcast In full by the Channels) said the other day “The Media has taken upon itself the Responsibility of spreading Lies against me”. That is an unkind outburst, especially when armies of Cyber Activists are ever present to demolish Modi critics in various Sites ( By Sri TJS George In The New Sunday Indian Express Dt 10.05.2015 -The Express Group is Out And Out BJP Supporter)
-Why Such Somersault?
-Oh Mediawale, Kya Ho Gaya.
The RSS and BJP might well have taken the position during Manamohan Singh years that there should be no Dialogue with Pakisthan but Modi as PM is wise enough to recognize merits of Diplomacy.
-Was there no Diplomacy then?
Thirty six Rafale planes from France are to be bought by India directly and rest to follow suit. But during UPA rule, It was decided that 18 numbers would be purchased and rest 108 Numbers would be assembled at HAL in India with France Technology ,which has been given a Go Bye In the present Agreement.
-Is it Patriotism and “Make In India” Syndrome?
8. MAHARASTRA STATE AGRICULTURE MINISTER SRI EKANATH KHADSE On 09.05.2015 Sri Khadse denied the claims of his counterpart in the Centre Sri Radha Mohan Singha (Agril. Minister at Centre) that only 3 Farmers had committed suicide in Maharastra since January 2015 ( Under BJP rule) saying ‘He had submitted a detailed report on farmer deaths’. He further said “I had personally handed over a detailed report to Sri Singha in New Delhi . Only he can say, why he said so” Khadse said. (The New Sunday Express dt 10.05 2015)
-Will any answer emerge as to why the figure was lowered abysmally?
(1) The above is a very good slogan but how come the Union Home Secretary advises over telephone the Governors of States to resign?
(2) How a twice charge-sheeted person like Salman Khan is chosen as an Icon of Swachha Bharat programme of the Prime Minister and how was he a 1st row invitee of the P.M.’s swearing in ceremony ?
(3) How the Prime Minister congratulates Ms. Jayalalitha on the same day of her acquittal pending scope for appeal by Karnataka Govt. in Supreme Court? Would it have not been proper if such congratulation would have been extended after her taking oath as Chief Minister? Is it to garner support in RAJYASABHA for the Land Acquisition Ordinance to get passed?
(4) Why Modiji is reluctant to initiate CBI inquiry in respect of MINES SCAM in Orissa though he is empowered to do so as per recommendations of the Shah Commission?
(5) An IAS Officer has been served with ‘Show Cause Notice’ by Chhatisgarh Government for having put up a Sun Glass while meeting the Prime Minister.
-If these are not symptoms good Governance, then what are?
When the UPA-II had introduced this Bill, Sri Yasawanta Sinha, (Finance Minister in Mr. Vajapayee’s time), being a BJP MP in Opposition had vehemently opposed the same. But most surprisingly, his own son Sri Jayanta Sinha, as Finance Minister of State in Modiji’s Govt. introduced the same and got passed with help of Congress. This led to comparing the action with Hindi song “Papa Kahate hein bada Naam Karega – Beta Hamara Yesa Kam Karega” By Trinmul M.P. Derek O. Brien.
-Why such U Turn ?
During UPA-II Bill on the matter, Sri Rajnath Singha as BJP President and Madam Sushama Swaraj as leader of Opposition had wholeheartedly supported the Bill which was also cleared by the present Speaker of Lok Sabha and the then head of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on the matter Smt. Sumitra Mahajan. Now, taking a complete U-Turn, Mr. Prime Minister, who as Chief Minister of Gujarat then had not opened his mouth is saying “Our support to the bill then was a mistake”. Is it to teach both the above mentioned leaders a lesson, because at some point of time, they also had eye on Prime Minister’s Chair. He is also not caring to the demands like ‘consent clause / social impact’ of his own RSS outfits like Bharatiya Kishan Sangh and Swadeshi Jagran Manch.
-When own people are ignored for the interest of Corporates, who cares for the demands of poor farmers!

Our Finance Minister Sri Arun Jaitley and the third member of the MODI-SAHA-JAITLEY-TROIKA (As per Sri Arun Shourie) on 14.05.2015 has said ‘The indirectly elected Upper House Members are obstructing passage of Law passed by the directly elected Lower House Members .Bill after Bill, Session after Session, India’s Parliamentary Democracy is facing a serious challenge. Article 110, dealing with Money Bills, is the Constitutional remedy for such a situation. BJP had also objected to UPA-II’s allocation of important Ministries to Rajya Sabha Members as they are not directly elected by the people.

-But how Modiji has allotted most of the important portfolios like Finance, Defense, Education, Power, Oil etc. to Rajya Sabha Members ? How Sri Jaitley himself, being defeated for a Lower House Seat was holding the posts of Defense and Finance portfolios initially and now holding Finance and I & B Ministries?
As leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Jaitely had thundered on “China War Report” not being made public. But he, as Defense Minister had told “It cannot be disclosed”
– Is this not a U – Turn?
They cannot be declassified, said the present Modi Govt. But the same BJP leaders had demanded disclosure of the same while in Opposition. On 23.01.2014, (before last Parliamentary elections), Sri Rajnath Singh, as BJP President had declared in Netaji’s birth place at Cuttack “To declassify the Files”.
Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Sri Haribhai Parthibhai Choudhury had said on 17.12.2014 that ‘It is sensitive nature and bringing it into the public domain at this juncture is not desirable from the point of view of India’s relations with other countries.
-Why such opposite view now?
BJP leaders had demanded for disclosure of the names while in Opposition but in power, declared “Names can not be released because it would violate International Treaty”, the same thing told during UPA time. If, it is not U-Turn, then what is?
When in Opposition, the scheme was dubbed as wastage of tax payer’s money by the BJP leaders. But in power, the scheme is being continued.

BJP had demanded abrogation of the clause, while in Opposition but pleaded for continuance of the same in Supreme Court while in power in a case filed by an activist Ms. Sneha Singhal.
-Why so ! (Of course, the Supreme Court struck down the clause in spite of Modiji’s Government’s desired to Continue with the same.)
BJP – while in Opposition – NO – and now – in power – YES – It is most ideal scheme. -Why such divergent views. Is it because “Role of opposition parties to oppose only, including very ideal ones”?
Then critic of UPA- II’s “Total Financial Inclusion Scheme” but now adopting the same scheme with name change only.
Then critic of “Nirmal Bharat” of UPA-II but now the same scheme is operation with name change only.. The difference is “A twice charge-sheeted and once convicted person is its Icon”. -Is it symbol of SWACHHA?
As Chief Minister of Gujarat, Modiji has objected tooth and nail to the same bill of UPA – II.
-Why ‘No’ then and ‘Yes’ now!
During Sri V. P. Singh’s rule, the present Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir was Union Home Minister. He, as Home Minister released some terrorists in lieu of his daughter, Dr. Rubiya Sayed, who was abducted by terrorists. Then he was called a “Deshadrohi” by the same BJP which has embarrassed him now.

Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, as Foreign Minister under Sri Moraraji Desai had to come back from his China visit as during his presence there, China had invaded Vietnam. But ,when Modiji was in close embarrass of Chinese President there, the Indian map released by China was showing Arunachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmiri as parts of China.

Our P.M. declares E-VISA to Chinese Tourists where as China issues stapled Visa to our Arunachal Pradesh residents. Sri Amit Shah, BJP President cancelled his meeting with H.H the Dalai Lama before Modi’s visit to China.

Mountain Strike Corps of 90000 personnel proposed during UPA Rule to act as a counter to the expending Chinese Military Capabilities, down sized to 29000 soldiers by the present Government before Modi’s visit to China.

India claims Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK) as its territory where as China is investing hugely there.
23. 60 YEARS Vrs. 60 MONTHS:
Before election, Modiji, at the top of his eloquent voice shouted “You have given them 60 years – give me 60 months”. The 60 months period ends in May – 2019. But why all the targets now are aimed at 2022 and beyond!
-Was the pre-election rhetoric a complete hollow (JUMLA) one?
24. PRAFULLA PATEL – Down – Down – S. C. GUPTA – Up – Up:
Senior Minister during UPA-II, belonging to NCP, Mr. Prafulla Patel is the “Bidi King” of India. BJP was shouting at its top voice for no restriction on Tobacco use by UPA-II. But now, its own M.P. Sri S. C. Gupta from Allahabad, a BIDI King is also a member of “Parliamentary Standing Committee on Narcotics” for which, the ex-Health Minister Dr. Harshavardhan’s assurance that “80% of cigarette / Bidi packets would be covered by Statutory Warning from 1st April – 2015” is not getting materialized.
-What type of politics it is!
When UPA Govt. was allocating more funds for poll bound states, that was a “SIN” as was being told by BJP. But now, adoption of the same practice is a “VIRTUE”.
-Does it justifies our Oriya Idiom, “Kahi Deuthanti Paraku – Budhi Na Disai Gharaku.”?
The “SARAL” format made more “JATILA – cumbersome” by the high sounding Govt.
– Less Govt. and more Governance indeed !
While in Opposition, BJP promised to end the culture but in power, continuance of the same is the reality. Even the Civil Aviation Minister took match box in his pocket to Aero plane and boasted of the same.
– Is it the symptom of ACHHEDIN?
When in Opposition BJP was opposing cricket match with Pakistan. SHIVASHENA Party, its longest ally even dug cricket pitch in Mumbai in order not to have a cricket match between the two countries. But the present Govt. appears to allow cricket match between the two countries some time in DEC. 2015which is a matter of concern. Is it to save the Pakistan Cricket Board from bankruptcy?
-Will our money not be utilized against us as the same may be channelized to the accounts of terrorist groups!

The BJP does not have a majority in the Rajya Sabha. So, this time it is not possible to bring a motion in Parliament to make Law for the construction of Ram Temple.
He also refused to clarify if the Modi Govt. would bring in a law for Ram Temple construction once the party has the numbers in Rajya Sabha.
-(i) Will ever a bill be brought by any BJP Govt. with all the seats in both the Houses?
-(ii) Will another Advaniji emerge for a Rath Yatra in the fear of the Tea Supplier in that Rath pushing the Rama of the Rath to oblivion?
Lokpal Andolan of Shri Anna Hazare was instrumental in Modiji coming to power. BJP leaders had promised” We will do immediately”.
Where is Lokpal ? Why CIC/CVC and many important posts are lying vacant?
-And what about bringing back the BLACK MONEY stashed abroad and crediting 15 lakh rupees to each family account as was promised by Sri Rajanath Singha , the then BJP President in an election rally on 03.11.2014?
YOGAGURU Ramadev ji, who played a vital role in making Modiji PM of India, had suggested some economic formulae so as to give away all tax systems (sales tax, income tax, excise tax etc). But unfortunately, no such proposal was incorporated in the last Budget. Rather, though his name was not in the “PADMA AWARD” list, the Guru declared “I am not interested”.. Now he is crying “PADMA AWARDS” are bestowed through lobbying and corrupt practices.
-What a tragedy indeed.
‘Demand of Retrospective Tax on Corporates by UPA Govt. was bad’ but the ‘same by him now (while he is in power) is good’.

And the only difference between Congress and BJP is “In comparison to UPA-II’s last year advertisement expenses depicting photos of Madam, Dr. Manmohan and other Ministers, the Modiji Govt. in 1st year of office has expended 40%’ less’
–Oh, what a great achievement ?
Henceforth, ‘according to the honorable Supreme Court’s verdict at 13th May – 2015, all the Govt. advertisements will be MODIMAYA only. Of course “No photo of other Ministers” was objected to by the Attorney General of India which the Supreme Court overruled. NAVEENMAYA PAGES with Govt. funds are over. The learned judiciary has taken over all the elements of Administration, from Mosquito eradication to Coal / Spectrum auction. Would it not be better if political and executive wings are abolished for their inaction?
In BJP ruled State of Madhya Pradesh, 8 people linked to Madhya Pradesh professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam have died mysteriously. It is reported that even one student having failed to pass Class-12th Examination (Rahul Yadav) secured admission to MBBS course because he is linked to an IPS Officer’s son-in-law involved in the scam
The much hype about allocation by the 14th Finance Commission on 10% extra allotment (32% to 42%) of funds to States is a hyperbole in as much as the reduction in Plan Allotment to States is upto 6% and thus the actual increase in allocation is 4% only. This has been clarified by Sri Abhijit Sen, member of the Commission.

The outbursts by the Prime Minister in foreign lands that ‘we were a corrupt nation prior to my taking over the charge, people were leaving the country then and the trend has reversed now etc’ are not expected of a head of the Administration of the Country.

Ten years after RTI was passed by Rajya Sabha on 12.5.2005, activists face hurdles. Transparency is under cloud. No Chief Information Officer, No Manpower, Missing of Files, Diluted Laws are the orders of the day.

When FUEL prices came down heavily due to International reasons, our P.M. roared ‘It is due to my good luck’. While the benefits of sharp decline in the cost were not passed on to the customers satisfactorily, the price of petrol has gone up by Rs. 7/- during the first fortnight of May, 2015 and by Rs.18/- from February, 2015.

Observing all the U-Turns, has the sociologist Mr. Dipankar Gupta quipped “Never let up a stand-in comedian, star in a full length movie or else it will hurt every time you laugh” ?

Parasites activate their design: Sankaracharya invited to Bath and Rath festivals of SriJagannatha

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Government of Orissa has again danced to the tune of the Caste-supremacists in matter of SriJagannatha.

Navakalevara is a great chance to tell the world that Buddha was a son of the Oriya soil whom the founder of Vajrayan Acharya Indrabhuti had consecrated as Sri Jagannatha.

This could have helped innumerable Buddhists of the world to locate the real birthplace of Buddha and Orissa could have got back her unique position as fountainhead of Buddhism.

But, unfortunately Orissa is running under a person, who has no affinity for the people of Orissa. He is a chance Chief Minister whose only passport to power has remained his ability to show himself as the son of his father. He is running Orissa by his father’s name with the help of a sturdy gang of sycophants and self-seekers, who, through their collective exploitation have pushed the people into such pusillanimity that they do not dare to go against him in the polling booths. Orissa is now a laboratory of nullification of democracy where there is a chief minister who is convinced that as long as official welfare projects are named and renamed after his father, the inane people dependent on opiates like one-rupeean-rice shall continue to vote for him and his raj as the son of his father, not as the leader of the people, shall stay strong. This man is alway ready to stay with the fellows that have the ability to misguide the people in any manner, so that exploiters and parasites should be satisfied and pleased. In the grip of this man Orissa has become such a confused place that the world’s sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists and political scientists would have to works hard to know how a majestic people became rotten within a period of one and a half decades.

Taking full advantage of this sordid situation, the caste-supremacists have activated their design to keep SriJagannatha under their cover so that the world cannot know him as Buddha and Orissa as the fountainhead of Buddhism.

There are parasites galore in present day Orissa who live gorgeous life without doing any labor to justify their living. Caste-supremacist culture authenticated by Sanatan Hindu Dharma, which Sankaracharya propounds, suits them the most. So, they are eager to see that Sankaracharya, whom people of Orissa, when they were heroic, had finally ousted from Jagannatha system by deracinating Adi Sankara’s statue from the RatnaSinghasana of SriMandira during the time of Gajapati Divya Singh Dev in 1790s along with the statue of his first chela Padmapada – the first predecessor in the Math of the present Sankaracharya, is allowed to have his hegemony in the affairs of SrJagannatha.

Thus, when the chief administrator of the temple is a man of the caste-supremacist caste, the present Gajapati Dibya Singh Dev led a team of fellows who do not sweat in earning their livelihood, to invite the Sankaracharya to the Snana Mandap and the chariot of SriJagannatha during the car festival, even though, as we have discussed earlier, he is an anathema to cult of Jagannatha.

There was no necessity of inviting him. Nobody invites the innumerable devotees to the car festival of Jagannatha. If he has any real affinity for SriJagannatha, he could have attended the car festival like the other devotees, and stayed away from touching the body of the deity as true devotees who dare the scorching sun and tormenting weather to have the deity’s darshan on the car, stay away from riding the Rath and touching the body of the deity.

But that is not to be. The parasites want to project him as the authority over SriJagannatha, in order to show the world that SriJagannatha is not Buddha of Oriya origin, but Vishnu of the caste-supremacist Hindus.

Sri Jagannatha is to be saved from parasites, if uniqueness of the Oriyas is to be saved.

You have used your public office to ruin India, Mr. Manmohan Singh, if not to “enrich” yourself

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The mouse never enriches itself by being in a position to treat a book taking advantage of lack of vigilance on part of a librarian, but it ruins the book by gnawing it down to tiniest pieces of useless papers. If the mouse says, “I have not enriched myself” thereby, should that look different from your assertion, “I have not used my public office to enrich myself”, Mr. Manmohan Singh?

Who other than you before you had ruined India to the point of such irrecoverability that a helpless people resigned to fate elected a man like Modi whose government deliberately dropped the core force of Indian Constitution – secularity and socialism – from its Preamble in its official advertisement in this year’s Republic day environment, Mr. Singh?

What was your reaction thereto Mr. Manmohan Singh? You knew that 42nd amendment had absolutized the Preamble that reads:

“WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation”

You knew that when any Article of the Constitution can be amended, the Preamble cannot be amended, as it is not an Article; rather is the mother of all Articles.

What sort of a Republic we are to be? The Preamble answers: a Sovereign Democratic Republic we are to be. How can we be such a Democratic Republic? The Preamble answers: if we can be secular. How can we become secular? The Preamble answers: If we can be socialist. So, the only way India can remain a Sovereign Democratic Republic is available in socialism. In other words, existence of India lies in socialism. You, Mr. Manmohan Singh knew it as all of us know it. And you know the bare definition of socialism is: social ownership over means of production.

Therefore, without venturing any amendment on the Preamble, as shrewd servants of capitalist conglomerate, you and Pranab Mukherjee, under the mask of P.V.Narasimha Rao, had subjected India to GATT agreement behind back of the people and thereby rendered the Preamble inconsequential. Since that day, India has succumbed to your design to take a turn from socialism to capitalism and thousands of crores of Indians have been pushed into starvation, to drag whom to condition of slow starvation, you had engineered supply of subsidized food grains like rice and wheat at the rate of Rs.2/- (even Re.1) per Kg.

Do you remember Mr. Singh, you had expressed “shame” over being confronted with the reality that “In India” around 46 per cent of all children below the age of three are too small for their age, 47 per cent are underweight and at least 16 per cent are wasted. Many of these children are severely malnourished”, in the Report of the ‘Citizen’s Alliance against Hunger and Malnutrition’ (HANGaMA) that you, as the Prime Minister of India, had released on 10 January 2012 ?

I, as a citizen, had expressed my shock in these pages over the admitted spread of abject poverty under your practice of capitalism and your scheme of globalization, under the caption: “Where is shame we may use in being ashamed?” Did you do anything tangible to save India from the “shame” you so shamelessly had depicted in that HANGaMA meeting, Mr. Singh?

When whole of India was trembling under uncontrolled rise in prices of essential commodities, you Mr. Singh had refused to clamp any control on avaricious traders by saying you had no “magic Wand” to reduce prices. You had pushed innumerable Indians, who were unable to meet the price rise, to condition of starvation, for which Mid Day Meal and one-rupeean-rice was contrived so that people may be dragged into slow-starvation from starvation and instead of dying soon, they may continue to live although in inanition. Had any other Prime Minister before you had used his office to push people to such ruin, Mr. Singh?

Be it the business of the terror funding Bank of a Pakistani namely BCCI, or implementing American design to provide “Bonanza” to US nuke traders by signing the nuke deal with them arbitrarily by keeping our Parliament in total dark about the “text” of the Hyde Act, which was a design to clamp on India the Americans’ rotten reactors to permanent detriment of Indian environment, in each of your such mischief, have you not misused your office as Prime Minister for benefit of foreigners at the cost of India, Mr. Singh?

Exposed by the CAG over mega scams that ruined the economy of India, had you not tried to intimidate the top auditor of the Country, Mr. Singh? Have you not obstructed the relevant CBI Court to hear you in matter of exposed scam, by way of invoking the intervening powers of the Apex Court? Was it not morally proper for you to honor the CBI court summon and state your version that could have helped the said court to determine if institution of the case before it was prima facie sound? Is it not ruining the manna of the CBI Court?

Who knows whether or not you have enriched yourself by using your office? But had you not accommodated compradors in your cabinet while holding the office of Prime Minister as the scams exposed by lawful authorities so emphatically suggest, Mr. Singh?

Should you not address yourself to introspection and come out honestly with your confession on what harm you have done to India?

Or yet you are blind to the ills of capitalism that you had clamped on India to please the Americans?

Or you are relaxed as your successor Mr. Modi, whom you have already met in a secluded room with only both of you privy to what you discussed, is set to enhance your economic policy so that the ruin he shall perpetrate will exceed that what you caused, bringing the gullible people eventually to say, you were better than Modi, exactly as the people before voting for BJP were saying, Vajpayee was better than you?

You were a teacher. Invoke the teacher again in you and confess your crimes against the Country, which only a teacher can do. Guts, an axiom says, is required to commit a crime, but greater guts is necessary to confess the crime. Show that you have the greater guts. As a man in politics, you committed wrong by subjecting India to capitalism, which has ruined India. Confess that.

Narasinghpur: BJD Chief Minister notified on BJD hooliganism perpetrated through Police

Thousands of peace loving people of Narasinghpur, the Constituency of Minister Debi Prasad Mishra, have notified BJD Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on BJD hooliganism perpetrated through the Police as per the ruling party scheme to keep the public terrorized so that nobody would dare to raise any more voice against ongoing oppressions.

They have alleged, entirely innocent persons are entangled by the Police in a murder case, simply because, their  principled campaigns against liquor mafia was irritating the local BJD leadership.

True, a known face of BJD, Sushant Bhol by name, was shut down to death for yet not known reason by yet undetermined gun person on May 10. He was allegedly involved in many criminal cases, and quite controversial in the locality.

rally 1

The local inhabitants suspect that internecine rivalry in the BJD for ruling the roost is responsible for his death. But, the wife of the deceased, instigated by BJD local leadership, has raised allegations against two such persons who were disadvantageous to Minister Mishra whose close supporters were being affected by their social activism.
The two social activists are Jnanaranjan Nayak and Sushant Kumar Mohanty.

Sri. Nayak, a lawyer by profession, is the Secretary of Gandhi Smaraka Nidhi, Narasinghpur; and Sri Mohanty is the President of Mukti, a local organization social activists. Both of them have been leading the marginal farmers and agricultural labors against exploitation by big land owners. But, their leadership in Nishamukti Andolan (people’s movement for freeing Narasinghpur from intoxicants) is spectacular. The government liqueur shops established at Jilinda were working as masks of hooch trade. The duo has forced their closure by mass movement. This and much other mass action they were leading had been irritating the BJD in Narasinghpur. So, people say, the BJD leadership was in search of opportunity to teach them a lesion. And now, death of Bhol has given them that opportunity.

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

RiaWhen a corrupt, incompetent, shortsighted government run by self-centric politicians and IAS  officers is pushing the State into ruin, a few brilliant students are re-kindling her hopes for a better future by fetching landmark success in their studies. One such student is Ms. Namrata Mohanty who has topped science stream of CBSE 12th in the zone comprising Orissa, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal . She has bagged 98.6% to have the top position in +2 from where ways are laid into all directions of higher education. Namrata’s preference is engineering like her father.

Her father Er. Priyadarshi Mohanty is an electrical engineer of eminence. He presently holds the position of DGM in NTPC in its Eastern Zone –II at Bhubaneswar. She is the granddaughter of scientist Jitendriyanath Mohany, former Professor in Physics in the paternal side and of Malay Kumar Pattanayak, a former top marketing executive. She owes her educational upbringing to her mother Swapna Pattanayak, who had her Masters from the State’s premier institute of higher education – The Utkal University.

A Delhi Public School student from Kolkata Deep Battacharya is bracketed with her in the top position with equal percentage. Namrata’s school is DAV Public School, Unit-8, Bhubaneswar.

For me personally it is a matter of utmost happiness, as she is my granddaughter from my Bhaniji (niece) Lara (Swapna Pattanayak).

SBI forces Bengali Language on Oriya speaking people

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

In whole of India, Orissa has a very unique place in history as not only the land of Kalinga war, but also as the land where British had not dared to set their ugly feet till the rest of the sub-continent had come to their control. The last soil to have been annexed to British India through treachery, Orissa was the first to have raised her sword to oust the British from her soil. In acknowledging this, he British historian G. Toynbee has said in his book A SKETCH OF THE HISTORY OF ORISSA , t“It was not long, however, before we had to encounter a storm which burst with so sudden fury as to threaten our expulsion, if not from the whole of Orissa, at least from the territory of Khurda”.

This heroic land, however, due to conspiracies of non-Oriya neighbors, had to succumb to British subjugation. The matter is elaborately discussed in orissamatters.com. Yet, for ready reference it may be recalled that, afraid of Oriya “disposition” (Magistrate W. Forrester to Commissioner Robert Ker on 9 September 1818) the British had divided the Oriya speaking tracks to four parts and merged the divided parts with Bengali, Hindi and Telugu speaking provinces to demoralize the Oriyas by reducing them to linguistic minorities in those rival areas. Exploiting this situations, some low-breed fellows managing their livelihood by working as pimps in red-light districts in those neighboring states had arbitrarily taken over Oriya lands and emerged first generation Zamidars. Those non-Oriya native servants and allies of the British were so savagely looting Orissa the thenBritish Collector of Cuttack Mr. W. Trower had described them as “scourge” in his report dated 23 May 1817(Revenue Administration in Orissa).

When people of Orissa raised a movement for amalgamation of all the Oriya speaking tracks so that they can collectively obstruct the loot of their land and assets by the non-Oriya servants and helpers of the British, the Bengalis started vomiting mad and maddening avowals that is a part of their own and hence Oriya speaking tracks annexed to their province were their own. Hindi and Telugu speaking provinces followed suit.

This claim of non-Oriyas had been taken up in Linguistic Survey of India the finding of which was given the words by G.A.Grierson. “The Oriya language can boast of a rich vocabulary in which respect neither the Bengali nor Hindi nor Telugu can vie with it”, it declared. The Bengalis got a great slap when their jewel linguist Suniti Kumar Chatterjee said, “It may be said without travesty of linguistic truth” that Oriya is much senior to Bengali and is Bengali’s elder sister”.

So, in language issue, the Bengalis know where they stand. Yet, they have been trying to inject their nuisance in villages of Orissa near to their provincial boarder. The language issue has remained the sensitive issue between the two linguistic rivals.

What was the necessity of telling this? This is because, the State Bank of India, running its LCPC Branch in Kolkata, has played a new mischief of forcing Bengali language on Oriya speaking customers of SBI in Orissa under guise of a RBI guidelines.

This is criminally offending to the people of Orissa. I would like the SBI and RBI national authorities to explain their positions to people of Orissa and beg unconditional apology publicly for the mischief the LCPC branch of SBI, Kolkata has played. Here below is the corpus delicti:

Irresponsible Journalism: Prameya makes mountain out of molehill

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The daily newspaper Prameya, published from Bhubaneswar, has made a mountain out of a molehill in eagerness to do which, it has contravened journalistic ethics that prohibit innuendoes against any woman.

The victim of its innuendoes is a lady member of Orissa Legislative Assembly Ms. Rajashree Mallick of the ruling BJD from Jagatsinghpur.

A Neem tree (Azadirachta Indica) selected as Daru (wooden log) for Nava Kalevar of SriJagannatha in the constituency of Ms. Mallick had attracted thousands of believers to the spot. Excise Minister of Orissa, Dr. Damodar Raut hailing from the same district was one of the visitors. Coincidentally Ms. Mallick had been to the spot at the same time. Both of them together in company of many visitors proceeded to the spot and Prameya had photographed them.

The information was not of any public importance, and, who were visiting the spot was not engaging media or mass mind. The issue of public importance was the Daru and the deliberate rituals going on there in contravention of norms that controls the choice of the Daru. Settled norms stipulate that if any bird would be having its nest in any of the branches of the tree, that tree must not be selected for building the new idol of Jagannatha. On this particular tree, an owl family was having its nest. The false and concocted legend of the so-called Daru was identified on the basis of dreams was certainly not matching the norms. The media had a responsibility to explain the phenomenon to the people keeping in mind the emphasis of the Constitution of India on ‘scientific tenor’ in matter of such religious activities.

When Prameya has shown no interest to handle the Daru issue, it has preferred to highlight the picture of the Minister and the lady MLA moving towards the Daru with a hand of the Minister put on the shoulder of the MLA captioning the same as “moment of intimacy”. The body of the story emphasizes that there was discernible deep intimacy between them both and they were engaged in “very secret discussion” on the spot of the Daru. Innuendoes are innuendoes. They cause damage, might be inadvertently, and always make mountains out of molehills. Therefore, Ethics of Journalism never countenances any presentation that is pregnant with elements to generate any innuendo against any woman or against whosoever has no sharpness to instantly grasp the tricks detractors play through pet media houses.

Journalism is the only profession that needs to cleanse itself from within, but there is no mechanism for that. The Prameya picture with the report dated May 14 is put here for records.

Impelled by Inner Soul, Standing Counsel Resigns

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

New Schools have been promised. New schemes have been announced education of children engaged in drudgery. Wordy acrobatics are in full display to convince people that Naveen Patnaik’s regime is committed to make every Oriya child educated.

I am not going to repeat how schools have been made the hubs of forged certificates. I am not going to repeat how  the Directorate of School and Mass Education has corrupted school education and has become a sanctuary of officers who act in nexus with and protect the school teachers that forge High School certificates and how recommendations of the Board of Secondary Education for lodging criminal cases against forgers of School Certificates caught with corpus delicti in course of investigation are ignored by the authorities.

I am not going to tell how massive numbers of schools have no roof, no sanitary facilities, no playgrounds.

I am not going to inform how the schools are politically forced to stay out of teaching, as majority time of the schools get lost in arrangement of mid-day-meals.

I am not going to report how the School and Mass Education Department is not behaving as an ‘ideal employer’ as the Supreme Court has advised the public sector employers to be, because of which, more than 20,000 cases have been preferred by tortured teachers, out of which are 5000 Contempt of Court cases against the Government for not having honored the directions of the Courts as and when issued for settling the disputes the department is entangled with.

But I am going to tell you that, so incorrigibly litigant the department has become that, its Standing Counsel has resigned from the post, being pushed by the State government into a state of suffocation, where helping the Court with “effective” legal assistance as the departmental lawyer was becoming impossible.

The department is pushing the teachers and the schools into predicaments compelling them to seek redress in the Courts. But when cases are lodged and petitions are received and cases are registered and time for Government’s response is notified,  the department is not advancing its counters. Around 15,000 cases are pending at the initial state, as the government has been ignoring the necessity of formulating their counters, years after years, for around fifteen years.

BPTSuffocated to the core,  with the feeling that the Government’s reluctance to end the cases as soon as possible so that the teachers and institutions shall come out of the cocoon of litigation to devote their best to education in the state, the Standing Counsel Adv. Bibhu Prasad Tripathy has tendered his resignation a few days ago.

“MY INNER SOUL IMPELLED ME TO TENDER MY RESIGNATION”, he has said the Government. He is one of the finest lawyers the State has ever produced. An alumnus of the famous National Law School of India University, Bangalore, Mr. Tripathy is General Secretary of Progressive Lawyers’ Association and a member of the State Bar Council of Orissa.

For documentation, we place here his resignation letter:
