WELCOME BJD HAVING 42-PERCENT WOMEN MEMBERS IN LOK SABHA

Monday, 27 May 2019 05:27 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

 WOMEN-RESERVATION NECESSARY IN LEGISLATURE 

New Delhi,26/05/19:New Lok Sabha will have highest number of women-members with a tally of 78 with ruling BJP having 40 out of them. BJD being amongst very few regional parties getting success in recently held polls to Lok Sabha and state Legislative-Assembly deserves all compliments for having five out of twelve (42-perecent) women amongst its newly elected members of new Lok Sabha.  Even TMC sent 9 women amongst 22 of its newly elected Lok Sabha members. It is noteworthy that out of 54 women having contested on BJP ticket, 40 were elected to Lok Sabha thus having a strike-rate of 74.1 percent as compared to male contestants with lower strike-rate of 68.8 percent.   

Now with parties like SP and RJD opposing Women Reservation Bill almost finished in new Lok Sabha, bill to provide 33-percent reservation to women in legislature should now be dream-come-true. Parties opposing Women reservation Bill cry for reservation on man-made aspects like religion and cast evidently for vote-bank politics, but oppose reservation to women which still remain dominated section of society created by nature in our male-dominated system. Even Islamic world including Pakistan and many other democratic countries have adopted Women-Reservation in legislature. 

To prevent wives or other relations being misused as proxy of male politicians, there should be a system whereby name or photo of husband or any other relation may not be permitted in election-campaigns of women candidates. At a time when women-quota in panchayats and local bodies is being increased to 50-percent from earlier 33-percent, it is meaningless to resist 33-percent reservation to women in legislature. Rather there should be uniform 33-perecent reservation for women at all stages from civic bodies to Parliament.

PRE-SCRIPTED DRAMA OF RESIGNATION-REJECTION OF RAHUL GANDHI BY CWC: BLAMING SENIOR CONGRESS-LEADERS FOR PROJECTION OF SONS OVERLOOKS ABOUT HIMSELF

Monday, 27 May 2019 05:23 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,26/05/19:It refers to post-poll meeting of Congress Working Committee CWC held in New Delhi on 25.05.2019 where happenings were on expected lines that Rahul Gandhi owning responsibility of big poll-defeat would offer to resign to be subsequently rejected by CWC. 

It was despite the fact that Rahul Gandhi himself admitted his big fault by succumbing to pressures of its three senior leaders Ashok Gehlot, Kamalnath and P Chidambram by giving their sons party-tickets. It is noteworthy that out of very few Congress-wins in north India, son of Kamalnath was able to win. At the same time, Rahul Gandhi overlooked his own case that he himself as Congress President was product of dynastic party-tradition. 

Congress has history that its most successful Prime Minister was PV Narsimharao who was perhaps the only rare example to run a minority government for full five-year term but was insulted after his death by not allowing his dead body to enter Congress headquarters. Everyone knows that Bharast Ratna Pranab Mukerji despite being the most capable Prime Ministerial candidate, was not crowned on the post because party-owner Nehru-Gandhi family did not trust him to be a loyal to the great political family of India. Even Sardar Patel who was not given due respect by his own party, was honoured adequately by BJP. 

Rahul Gandhi can only be replaced practically as Congress President only if either Priyanka Gandhi accepts the responsibility or her son become age-wise eligible to hold the post.

By-elections caused due to sitting MLAs and Rajya Sabha members elected to Lok Sabha: Resignation from earlier seat be made compulsory before contesting for new seat

Monday, 27 May 2019 05:20 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,26/05/19:It refers to unnecessary and costly by-elections caused because of 49 sitting MLAs and 4 Rajya Sabha members having been elected for new Lok Sabha. By-elections also become necessary in case a candidate wins from two constituencies of both for Lok Sabha and state-assembly. Such by-elections are criminal waste of public-money because of faulty poll-laws not refined even after seven decades. 

At least basic poll-reforms should be immediately done whereby any sitting MP or MLA must resign from earlier seat within say three days of election-notification so that by-election for the vacated seat may be simultaneously held with general elections. Since a person cannot represent two constituencies at a time or can be member of both Parliament and state-legislature simultaneously, a person must not be allowed to contest from more than one constituency or for both Lok Sabha and state-assembly. Also a sitting MP on being appointed minister in state-assembly (and vice-versa) must automatically lose membership of the earlier House.

DEATH OF MOUNTAINEER KALPANA DAS: ACTIVIST MOVED NHRC OF NEPAL

Saturday, 25 May 2019 06:27 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

Bhubaneswar,24/05/19:A social activist on Saturday move the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) of Nepal, seeking a thorough probe into the mysterious death of mountaineer Kalpana Das and other 13 climbers on Mount Everest in this spring season.

“The NHRC of Nepal should take cognizance in the matter and direct authorities to probe in which circumstances Kalpana and other mountaineer died on Mt Everest. It is due to mismanagement by authorities and allowing for overcrowding of climbers”, alleged the petitioner Mr. Akhand, a member of Civil Society Forum on Human Rights at Bhubaneswar.

49 year old climber Kalpana Das died above the balcony area on Mt Everest on 23rd May, 2019 afternoon while descending from the summit point. Kalpana along with Kanchhi Maya Tamang from Nepal and Liyamu Ma from China made it to the summit of Mt Everest at around 12:55 pm. Das, who fell ill on the descent died near the balcony area.

The 50-year-old mountaineer had left for Nepal on April 23 from Bhubaneswar. After reaching the peak, she had trouble walking because of which she was coming down with the help of Sherpas (Nepali Guides). When they reached the balcony area, her breathing stopped. One official informed their family members that her leg is not fine and that she was climbing slowly. Later official team from Nepal said her body is hanging from balcony area.

Due to mismanagement and overcrowding of climbers in mountain, in this season at least 14 climbers have been died. Death toll in this week is at least seven - more than the total for the whole of last year (2018), alleged Akhand.

According to the reports, the season witnessed at least 14 fatal incidents with five deaths on Mt Everest, three each on Mt Kanchenjunga and Mt Makalu as well as one each on Mt Lhotse, Mt Annapurna and Mt Cho Oyu till date.

The government of Nepal this year has handed out 378 permits, topping the previous record of 373 in 2017. Climbers are assisted by Nepali guides. This could mean that about 750 climbers will be attempting to scale the mountain at the same time in May when the weather is expected to be favorable.

“It comes amid traffic jams near the summit as record numbers make the ascent, despite calls to limit the number of climbing permits. There are two rows of climbers. Because there is only one fixed rope at the summit, climbers ascending and descending the summit all have to share the same rope”, Petitioner said.

Akhand demanded before NHRC through a online complaint that, “Death of Kalpana and other climbers should be investigated. In what circumstance they are died. How the dead body of Kalpana is found hanging from balcony area? One of the prime reasons of deaths is overcrowding of climbers in Mountain Area. Authorities of Nepal must be accountable for it.”

“Hua taa Hua”; SAM PITRODA SORRY AFTER PM NARENDRA MODI ROAST, CONGRESS SNUB

Saturday, 11 May 2019 04:10 Written by

New Delhi,10/05/19

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP launching a blistering attack, and his own party chief distancing itself from him, Congress leader Sam Pitroda on Friday swallowed his words over the 1984 riots – "Haan, hua toh hua [Yes, it happened, so what]".

PM Modi led from the front to slam the Congress and Pitroda. Addressing a rally in Haryana's Rohtak district, which goes to polls on Sunday, he said, "Their minds are filled with arrogance. Yesterday, this was described in just three words. Congress has been so insensitive, this was indicated in those three words. They were not uttered out of the blue. These words reflect the character, mentality and intent of the Congress. What were those three words? Hua toh Hua."

Modi then targeted Pitroda. "This senior leader is the closest aide of the Gandhi family. He is around them day and night..he is also their biggest confidante and was a friend of Rajiv Gandhi and now he is Rahul Gandhi's guru."

Pitroda said his statement was blown out of proportion and attributed the controversy to his poor Hindi. "I wanted to say move on. We have other issues to discuss as to what BJP government did and what it delivered...I wanted to say jo hua vo bura hua, I could not translate bura in my mind," Pitroda told a news agency.

Amid protests by Sikh groups in New Delhi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi too condemned Pitroda. "I think 1984 was a needless tragedy that caused tremendous pain. What Mr. Sam Pitroda has said is absolutely and completely out of line and is not appreciated. I will be communicating this to him directly. He must apologise for his comment," Gandhi wrote in a Facebook post.

Earlier in the day, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh too criticized Pitroda's statement. "I totally don't accept that statement. It is the duty of successive government to find out who was behind it and how the riots happened," he said.

During the day, the Delhi unit of the BJP took out a procession against Pitroda and demanded an apology from him. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley tweeted that it was a matter of disgrace that the party did not show any remorse and wondered if Rahul Gandhi would oust hus Guru for his remarks.

Along with Haryana, all of Punjab will vote on May 12.

GIVING CANDIES IN PLACE OF COINS SHOULD BE OFFENCE WITH COINS NOW IN MORE THAN PLENTY

Saturday, 11 May 2019 04:06 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,10/05/19:Presently with Reserve Bank of India RBI and government-mints facing a unique problem of storage of coins and mints at times working in just one shift rather than usual three, still many vendors are continuing with faulty practice of giving candies, chocolates and other such unwanted items in place of balance coins. Many retailers have made it a practice to give candies and chocolates in place of coins even though they have sufficient coins in their cash-boxes. It is a noble way to earn extra profit through such forced sale of unwanted items devised in the days when coins were in scarcity. 

Central Government should take steps to stop such anti-consumer tactics by making provision to impose fine on traders who give candies, chocolates and other unwanted items in place of balance coins to consumers. RBI should direct all private and public sector banks to ensure sufficient coin-bags of each denomination especially of rupees one and five at all their branches so that these may be available on demand to any one irrespective of being customer of the bank. 

Production of coins of rupees two should be stopped by increasing production of one-rupee coins because it is quite often that one-rupee coin is not given back as balance of two-rupee coin because of one-rupee coin-bags not usually available. Coins should only be in denominations of rupees one and five.
