Fidgets: Manmohan Singh who called revolutionaries ‘left viruses’, calls CBI Court ‘mindless’

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is in fidgets, as situation has been created to judicially focus on his face.

Being summoned by the CBI Court in Coal Block allocation scam, instead of cooperating with the Court as an ideal citizen, he is trying to evade the Court, by preferring a litigation in the Supreme Court of India seeking quashing of the summon.

At the crux of his petition lies his perception that the CBI Court is mindless.

The summon issued to him is generated because of “non application of mind”, he has alleged.

He is a man who, in his nefarious design to render the Constitution of India purposeless by sabotaging its resolve for socialism, had hurled the wordy filth ‘left viruses’ at the revolutionaries that fight for socialism, to overcome whose impact his government was giving the people opiates like subsidized wheat and rice to keep them under slow-starvation while continuing to densify capitalism, which was the cause of starvation.

Now the same man Manmohan Singh, lest the CBI Court comes to the conclusion that he was working as a comprador in the coal block allocation matter, has called the Court mindless.

When in Office, Singh had tried to belittle the dignity of India’s Constitutional Authority of Audit – the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) – whose reports were exposing the black deeds of his administration.

Singh was terribly irritated when in March 2012 the CAG estimated that the country has suffered a financial loss to the tune of Rs.10.7 Lakh Crores because of scam in coal block allocation during the period from 2004 to 2009. In May 29, 2012, he asserted that he would give up his public life if found guilty of the scam.

When the CBI court is attempting to find out whether or not he is guilty of the scam, and the ready issue in hand is his role in allocation of Talbira -II coal block to a particular private company called Hindalco in 1996, the same Manmohan Singh is trying to quash the Court’s attempt to reach at the truth!

The people of India have punished the Congress as severely as possible only in order to avenge Manmohan Singh’s misrule and treason against the country. His administration was marked for unprecedented treachery against the people, subjugation of India to American hegemony, compromising with India’s future in order to ensure “bonanza” to Americam Nuke traders, and amongst may other offenses against the country, attempts to thwart the Supreme Court’s judgment through vested interest ordinances, disturbed over which, Rahul Gandhi, the only person in Congress marked for his eagerness to be one with the poorest of the poor Indians the victims of or threatened by big private industries, had called Manmohan’s ordinance-missile against the Court as ‘Nonsense’.

Let the Supreme Court decide his petition as it likes, because there is no avenue available to the people to intervene with what it will hold.

But the conscience of any citizen of this country holds that whether or not the former Prime Minister of India has acted a comprador in coal block allocation to Hindalco be determined through a competent Court of Law within a specific time.

Litigation and Modi Mission seem sic passim the letter of Jayanti Natarajan

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Jayanti Natarajan’s letter to Sonia Gandhi, dated November 5, 2014, was not supposed to reach the Press. But it reached the Press and got circulated.

She has not denied the letter. But, on the other hand, has added strength to it through media yesterday.

If she is to be believed, Ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s role was not becoming of the position he was holding.

But, she has no grievance against Singh.

What, then, Jayanti’s letter aims at?

It aims at dragging Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to litigation for the damage allegedly done to her and her family’s reputation by forcing her to resign from the post of Union Minister of State (I/C) Environment and Forest on December 20, 2013.

To make out the case, she has first focused on what a family of high repute she hails from and then proceeded to how her personal and family reputation has been tarnished and shattered by making her resign from the ministerial post she was holding.

She has raised the question of ‘natural justice’ which was and has been denied to her at the time of and after her enforced resignation. “If indeed I had been guilty of wrongdoing, I would have been happy to have been given a chance to defend myself, and I would have emerged pure and transparent and victorious.This opportunity was not given to me” she has said.

Thus making out a case of denial of natural justice to her, she has alleged, “Until now, I have been unable to understand what was wrongdoing committed by me to suddenly receive what was virtually a sentence of death”.

And, then, she has enumerated the damages done to her in these words:

“Over the last 11 months I have undergone untold mental and physical agony, as a result of this incident. I have major health issues due to my tension and humiliation over the treatment meted out to me, and my future looks bleak”.

Possibly she is contemplating a damage suit against Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, holding them responsible for her enforced resignation from her ministerial position, as she has made it clear that she never holds the then Prime Minister responsible for what made her “humiliated so brutally”.

“The then Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh wrote a letter to me, accepting my resignation, in which he praised the excellent work I had done as Minister, and what he termed my valuable contribution as Minister. In these circumstances, it was clearly not the Prime Minister nor my work in Government, which led to my ouster as Minister”, she has declared.

If she is not planning to drag Sonia and Rahul to the Court, she would not have been so emphatic in confronting Sonia with how she and Rahul had denied her natural justice.

“I want to place on record, that from December 20, 2013, until now, I have still not been told by you, why I was asked to resign from the Council of Ministers, nor have I ever been asked or given an opportunity to explain, if indeed I had committed any wrongdoing” she has said while further asserting that her letter is meant to do justice to her family “legacy” damaged by her “humiliation”.

“I wish to record that I tried several times to meet Shri Rahul Gandhi and you, but was not given an appointment” whereas “I need to save the legacy of my family; or children and my future generations will not forgive me”.

Interestingly, Natarajan has depicted in her letter how she was forced against her will to attack Modi in ‘snoopgate’ . To quote her:

“While I was still a Minister, an important matter which has caused me great agitation is the fact that I was called upon to attack the present Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on what is referred to in the media as ‘Snoopgate’.

“Despite the fact that I initially refused, because I thought that the party should attack Shri Modi on policy and governance and not drag an unknown woman into a controversy, Shri Ajay Maken telephoned me on November 16, 2013, while I was on tour and asked me to come to Delhi immediately to address a press conference on the issue. I expressed my disinclination to do this, and refused the assignment, mentioning that I was a Minister at that time, and this should not be taken as the point of view of Government. I suggested perhaps an Official Spokesperson should do the Press Conference, if so desired. Shri Maken told me once again, that this was a decision taken at “the highest level” and that I had no choice in the matter. After the press conference throughout the controversy which followed I was told by Shri Maken to fiercely attack Shri Modi, on TV channels and during debates, although I was otherwise never fielded in the media after appointment as Minister”.

Considering her disposition displayed in her letter, it is difficult to accept that she was also taking orders from Maken and implementing them.

So the mention of the Modi matter, indicating that in her view it was wrong to attack Modi, has a strong indication and that is, Kalyani Natarajan is building her up for Modi Mission.

How long Rahul’s frustration could have been kept under the lid?

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Unless Rahul Gandhi’s heart was full to its last brim in wrath and frustration over the harm his mother and Manmohan Singh combine had done to the uncomplicated common man of India, he would never have done what he did by skipping Sonia’s farewell dinner offered to the outgoing Prime Minister on 14 May 2014.

The common man had made its supreme sacrifice to free India from the foreigners; but this treacherous combine along with the present President Pranab Mukherjee did everything to help the foreigners grab our lands and establish their empires in India.

Dreams of freedom fighters, who had dared British gallows, bullets, batons and boots to make their motherland the land where they shall dwell in peace with full ownership over all the natural resources and all the means of production, got shattered by the above said gang of the three to the total detriment and ruin of the common man.

Self-employed small farmers were brutally displaced from their lands and habitations for allocation thereof to private and foreign industries, under whose design the forest-dwelling tribes to whom mountains and hills are Gods, springs their blessings, plants the staple sources of livelihood, in the name of and devotion to which they had made the maximum contribution to martyrdom in the freedom struggle, were thrown out of their living environment and brutally tortured by the State, in the regime of Singh that Sonia was controlling.

To the young, unmarried, unpolluted Rahul Gandhi, who is marked for his eager concern for the tribal people, this treachery was unbearable. His humanly conscience, as we have marked, was militating against his political entity as a team mate of the very same politicians who, in power, were playing havoc with the poor people in the name of their development, when, in fact, their actions were pushing people to imperilment and exploitation by the rich.
He is marked to have expressed solidarity with the tribes fighting against the State power and private industries to protect their revered hills like Niyamagiri and eco-systems that are being destroyed for mining by private industries and the mafia.

As a very informed insider, he must have seen the nasty game his mother and Manmohan were playing against our people and must have felt ashamed of being a passive onlooker of the treachery.

He was evidently ashamed of how his mother’s remote-controlled Manmohan Singh had tried to foil the Supreme Court mandate on convicted politicians and had no qualms in terming the official ordinance in that regard “nonsense”.
He must have felt how people of India were, during electioneering, looking at Modi as a lesser danger than the Congress rulers and in sheer frustration, he must have preferred to keep away from the dinner in order to display his total disapproval of what Manmohan Singh has done to India under stewardship of Sonia.

May 16 may be a day of national calamity for India as a new phase of harsher misrule ensured by continuance of of the same political economy of capitalism that Manmohan had clamped on India is feared to engulf the country with the mandate, which certainly would be mindless, as nobody has condemned relegation of Parliament from its pivotal role to peripheral , under a wave manufactured by the ‘rich media’ for Modi, declared “Prime Ministerial Candidate” in total disregard to the role of elected MPs in selection of Prime Minister .

With the phase of Sonia-Singh meretricious concern for the common man over, and their aggressive collaboration with American imperialistic design gone with the reign going into Modi’s hands, one may expect that Rahul will rip apart the cocoon and, instead of passive resentment to the high-command controlled misrule, which he disapproved by discarding the dinner Sonia offered to Manmohan, he may begin afresh with his marked concern for the common man and emerge the expected obstacle to the profiteers’ mischief that is bound to overwhelm India post May 16.

Amethi raises a point the nation ought to look at

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The Amethi Sub-Divisional Magistrate has refused a residential certificate to Rahul Gandhi, with the observation that he has no proof of stay, even occasionally, in Amethi.

Onus lies on Rahul to explain his position to Indian public.

Any Indian can represent any constituency in the Loksabha without being a voter of that constituency. But the constituency that sends him/her to the Loksabha should not be remote controlled. One elected to the Loksabha is duty-bound to make himself/ herself available to the Lokas (common people) of the constituency, as he/she is morally bound to be one of them. And, for this, a permanent residence of the leader in the constituency is essential. The Court has shown that Rahul gandhi has not bothered about it.

This sad truth exposes how he and his likes have killed the very spirit of the concept of the Loksabha.

The concept of Loksabha under Indian Republic never countenances ghost representation, inasmuch as a Loksabha Member is to basically represent the lokas (the common people) of the concerned constituency.

It is, therefore, high time to make it a legal must for people’s representatives to have their houses in any well-connected nerve-center of the constituencies they represent within at best six-months of their election, failing which the election should be declared null and void.

To avoid load of expenditure on the exchequer and loss of administrative time, no re-election should be allowed in such cases and from amongst the candidates who besides being the residents of the constituency should have got the highest number of votes next to the dismissed winner, must automatically be declared elected.

This is essential to save democracy from being remote-controlled and ruined.

Unseen significance of Modi’s emergence as BJP’s candidate for Prime Minister post

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The month long drama having ended with the parliamentary board of BJP deciding to plant Modi as its prime-ministerial candidate, the ruling Congress has succeeded in its conspiracy to destroy India’s parliamentary democracy, that it had started with projecting its chairperson’s son Rahul as its choice for the post of the prime minister.

People of India are too simple-natured to understand this nasty design, the sole purpose of which is complete transformation of the country from democracy to plutocracy, which cannot be possible unless collective political wisdom is subjugated to individual overlordship.

The party of sycophants and American gizmos – Indian National Congress – in its eagerness to please the Americans, whose interests may be best served if collective wisdom of India is done away with, willfully projected Rahul Gandhi as its prime-ministerial candidate giving necessary impetuousness to the BJP to name its candidate too.

And, in the process, Narendra Modi has emerged.

From now on, for the party of the fascists, the approaching general election would be Modi-centric instead of being party-centric.

The nexus

Despite the gang of four – Manmohan Singh, Pranab Mukherjee, P.Chidambaram and Sonia Gandhi – having forced India into the grip of USA trade designs including the nuke deal and FDI, there are enough reasons for the global imperialists to apprehend that their designs may fail, if party-centric Indian parliamentary democracy wakes up to defend itself.

Manmohan Singh could have done everything the Americans might have wanted; but he couldn’t, because the party he belongs to and the parties he allied with appeared not bereft entirely of collective wisdom.

So, relegation of collective wisdom of political parties to individual overlordship under their respective banners has become essential for the foreigners that want to grab Indian markets and natural resources.

To their advantage, Indian Communists and other self-proclaimed progressive parties cherishing to be named Left, but not Communists, have lost their credibility by misguided alliance with capitalists in the power game. Regional parties are sorts of private fiefdoms of particular individuals known as the “supremo” to their followers.

And, hence, to utter misfortune of India, only the two parties – the Congress and the BJP – are able to acquire national power.

Unseen danger

Imperialism wants them both to seek mandate not in the name of the party, but each in the name of a particular individual, so that collective wisdom in their respective environment would give way to individual overlordship, which the imperialists can easily exploit to remote control India.

This is the greatest danger India is to face. Whosoever loves motherland India should think of how to extricate the country from the environment of Hobson’s choice created by the Congress and BJP nexus.

The remedy

Patriots must rise up to revive the days of freedom struggle even if militancy be the means; because, to save the motherland from the present juncture is more calling than abiding to laws that fails to foil foreigners’ evil design.

IS IT NOT THE TIME FOR THE CONGRESS PARTY TO CHANGE ITS PRIME MINISTER?

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

How much misrule will convince the Congress party that it is time for it to change its Prime Minister?

In a country of simpletons and sycophants like India, where majority voters are uninformed and misinformed and where corporate controlled media rules the roost in public information and where the election system is suspected of vitiation by maneuverable Electronic Voting Machines and where the main Opposition is a party of profiteers and communal fanatics, it was not surprising that the Congress could bag majority seats of the Loksabha to lead the alliance styled UPA and to have its own man Dr. Mnmohan Singh as the Prime Minister again.

But, Dr. Singh has given such a rule that, instead of saying him to vacate, the Congress general secretary Dig Vijay Singh has already said that it is time, Rahul Gandhi should take over as PM.

Nobody in the Congress has said that Rahul should not take over as the PM. Rather the party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan has clarified that Rahul may take over as PM whenever he so decides.

This is reflective of the fact that the Congress party is conscious about the reality that Dr. Singh has become a liability.

In fact, his economic policy has ruined the economy of the common man. The official notifications on ever increasing consumer price index and ever increasing doses of Dearness Allowance for salaried officials is strong enough evidence of the fact that his government has no control over profiteers, over exploiters, over market mafia. The priority he has given to transform India into a grazing ground of foreign, specifically American nuke traders, is conspicuous by its absence in stopping exploitation of the common man by the manufactures and traders of consumer goods.

In every sphere of administration, galore are instances of misappropriation and malfeasances.

The constitutional authority, whose duty it is to locate these dangers to democracy through test audits – The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) – is being ignored by administration as in the case of MPLADS or cold-shouldered and criticized by the central ministers including even the Prime Minister himself.

The CAG in its latest report on MPLADS has said that, even though in its earlier reports (1998 and 2001) it had pointed out various lapses in the implementation of the scheme, the government had slept over them for ten and eight years respectively and when Action Taken Notes were finally produced in 2009, it was seen that the same were lackluster notes sans any real address to the issues raised and action against the practitioners of malfeasances shown.

“The current report reveals that many of the shortcomings pointed out in those two Reports still persist”, the CAG has stated.

The current Report has unveiled various types of serious mismanagement of MPLAD funds all over the country. These are such offenses that many MPs should have been taken to task and even censured in the Parliament for having hijacked through masked agents the funds allocated for the scheme in their respective areas. But, instead of that, and without insulating the scheme from MPs’ politico-personal dragnets, the amount of the fund has been enhanced, just to keep majority of them pleased to stay safe in power.

If MPLADS is a sample of how the constitutional authority of audit is being sloughed over or rendered inconsequential in real terms, the 2G spectrum is a matter where even the Prime Minister has not hesitated to embarrass the CAG.

When the apex audit reported a massive loss of about Rs. 1.76 lakh crores to the nation’s exchequer by mishandling of the allocation of the 2G spectrum in 2008, Dr. Singh had came down quite rudely upon its conduct, almost rejecting its report on the 2G spectrum scam without making any mention of it, as inaccurate, imbalanced and unfair. In a CAG conference itself, on the very same day its Report on the scam was tabled in the Parliament, he had told the CAG that it must “ensure that its reports are accurate, balanced and fair”.

He disapproved the way the audits are being conducted.

“We may benefit more if the focus of audit is not so much on minute, individual transactions”, he thundered, because the 2G spectrum audit was minute audit of individual transactions.

As if the CAG in its report on 2G spectrum had indulged in fault finding, made a mere guess of the quantum of loss to the country and therefore had made an unreasonable estimate, he said, “Very often, there is a very thin line between fair criticism and fault finding, between hazarding a guess and making a reasonable estimate, between a bonafide genuine error and a deliberate mistake”. He wanted the CAG “to distinguish between wrong-doing and genuine errors, to appreciate the context and circumstances of decision making process”, as if the CAG’s report on 2G spectrum was a product of lack of its comprehension of “the context and circumstances of decision making process”!

Such Prime Ministerial attempt to demoralize the apex audit body of the country created by the constitution had never been made by any Prime Minister.

Before the seriousness of this vicious assault on CAG is fully grasped by the people, the country is rocked by bomb blasts in Mumbai.

When the central home minister P. Chidambaram has said that, “despite the vast intelligence machinery that is available ………. this one slipped through”, he has also said, “Having no intelligence in this case, however, does not mean that there was a failure on part of the intelligence agencies”. This shows how the central government is running under utter confusion.

Chidambaram’s statement has different ramifications.

On one, it is being assumed that the series of blasts were aimed at derailing Indo-Pak talks. The union home minister also does not differ. This possibility “is not ruled out”, he says.

On another, it may also be assumed that the blasts might have been planned to divert public attention from the growing demands for extinguishment of corruption and retrieval of the monetary wealth of India secreted in black coffers in foreign banks by the traitors in politics, in public service, in trade and industry and their lobbyists.

Whatever be the ramifications, the reality is that, “despite the vast intelligence machinery that is available”, so many persons have been killed and injured in the series of blasts in the same city of Mumbai that was brutalized by Pak terrorists on November 26, 2008. Had the surviving culprit of that attack Ajmal Kasab been hanged in honoring the court order, in time and in the spirit of the verdict, the July 13 attack might have not taken place. But Dr. Singh’s government has, by not helping diligently the President to reject his mercy petition, created a situation for the Supreme Court to save his life. This has emboldened the enemies to terror attack again.

The Supreme Court has made it clear that if mercy petitions are not disposed off within three months of receipt of the applications, the Court would be constrained to commute death sentences to life imprisonments if moved by the culprit.

A Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court in Triveniben vs State of Gujarat had refused on February 7, 1989 to place a time cap on disposal of mercy petitions. Yet, on September 18, 2009, in Jagdish v State of Haryana it has said, “A self-imposed rule should be followed by the executive authorities rigorously, that every such petition shall be disposed of within a period of three months from the date on which it is received. Long and interminable delays in the disposal of these petitions are a serious hurdle in the dispensation of justice and such delays tend to shake the confidence of the people in the very system of justice” and, thus has justified commutation of death sentences to life imprisonment in various instances, in one instance, even saying, “These delays are gradually creating social problems by driving the courts to reduce death sentences even in those rarest of rare cases in which, on the most careful, dispassionate and humane considerations death sentence was found to be the only sentence called for”.

The government of Dr. Singh, by delaying the execution of death sentence “found to be the only sentence called for” in Mumbai 26/11 offense, is foiling the sentence inasmuch as Kasab, the guilty Pak-terrorist, because of the tremendous delay in disposal of his mercy petition, is likely to use the Apex Court orders quoted supra to judicially escape the gallows.

Meretricious sympathy of Dr. Singh with the victims of the 13th July blasts is not going to show that he is not responsible for the climate of Pak-terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

Because of self-defeating politics in Parliament, the country could not know the real role Dr. Singh had played as Reserve Bank Governor and Finance Minister in the matter of the notorious Pakistani Bank of terror funding, the BCCI, which had, despite warning from RAW, been allowed to operate in and from Mumbai.

But if the 13th July blasts in Mumbai took place “despite the vast intelligence machinery that is available” as the Union Home Minister has said, it was because of lack of appropriate monitoring and coordination amongst the intelligence agencies. To make the intelligence agencies accountable, the Home Minister has submitted a proposal to create a National Counterterrorism Centre (NCTC); but Dr. Singh has not cleared it as yet.

Both the Prime Minister and Home Minister are confusing the country by using the term ‘terrorism’ against both the enemies and patriots of the country – against the terrorists from beyond the border and against the Indian progressive radicals – leading to common man’s failure in differentiating between the two types. Therefore, the intelligence agencies have been failing in spotting the cross border terrorist though the common man.

If the difference is not distinguished in the Home Minister’s proposal, the envisaged NCTC will be of no utility for betterment of India, as and when the PM clears the proposal and the central government constitutes it.

But, at the moment, relevant it is that Dr. Singh is sleeping over the proposal of the home minister to create NCTC for ensuring accountability of the country’s intelligence agencies, which might have made them alert enough to catch the culprits before the blasting took place.

No further proof of misrule is necessary. Look at any area, people are in ruins. But the people had never given majority mandate to the Congress party to ruin them. Hence, is it not the time for the Congress party to replace Dr. Singh with anybody that can try to change the scenario and retrieve the country’s dignity?

BUDHIA TO GUDIA: IS THERE ANY CONGRESS BEYOND THE CONCEPT?

IF THERE IS NONE, IT WOULD BE PATRIOTIC TO REJECT THE CONGRESS

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Budhia means a withered old woman whereas Gudia means a baby girl far below the age of maturity. Both of them are unproductive as neither is fit for parturition.

Star campaigner of BJP Narendra Modi, howsoever unbecoming it may be of a provincial Chief Minister to use these epithets for a rival political party, has used these terms sans qualms for the Congress Party in the ongoing battle of ballots.

Calling the Congress Budhia is crude? Ok. I’ll call it Gudia, told Narendra Modi to the Indian public in a manner of a rejoinder to Priyanka Gandhi’s poser, “Does my mother or do I look old?

The epithet Budhia used by Modi for the Congress may not look like coming from a decent politician. But was it necessary for Priyanka to put this poser? Are the voters of India interested in her or her mother’s age? And, who is she to put this poser? Is she the Congress? Is her mother the Congress?

Modi had used political wit to tell the voters that the Congress party having reached the age of 125 years is like a crone that can no more be expected of delivering the desirable.

Where from Priyanka got the idea that Modi used the word Budhia for her and / or her mother Sonia?

By interpreting Modi’s Budhia in the line of her and her mother’s age, not of the Congress, Priyanka has only made it clear that the Congress is no more a political party that her mother heads but is a mere mask that she and her mother use to their personal advantage.

This reminds one of Mrs Indira Gandhi, who had developed the fancy that she was India and had ventured to force-feed the peoples with this idea through her factotum Dev Kant Baruah who shamelessly had sung, “Indira is India and India is Indira”. India had woke up to thrash the scoundrels blue and black.

Foreign born Sonia domiciled in India by virtue of her marriage to the elder son of the same Indira Gandhi is perhaps using her mother-in-law’s modus operandi, as her daughter Priyanka’s poser suggests, to equate herself with the Congress, which many of modern Indians mistake to be the party that had fought for our freedom from foreign yoke.

Modi placed the Congress party in the fold of old age. And, Priyanka calculatedly posed, “does my mother or do I look old?” In other words, “If neither my mother is nor am I old, how can the Congress be old?” she wondered.

Is there any Congress beyond this at the moment?

Is there any Congress where Sonia is the President of Congress, not the Congress?

Is there any Congress where Priyanka is the daughter of the President of Congress, not the Congress?

Is there any Congress where Rahul is the son of the President of Congress, not the Yuvraj (Prince) of the Congress, as media is now projecting him?

Is there any Congress, which is not the son and the daughter of Sonia and Sonia herself?

By tossing Congress from Budhia to Gudia, Narendra Modi has helped us rise to cogitate if there is any Congress beyond the Sonianisation concept.

If there is none, it would be patriotic prudence in election 2009 to reject the Congress.
