Green signal by Tamilnadu Govt. for the revision of property tax



After a court order, The Tamilnadu Govt. has given its permission to the urban native bodies including the Greater Chennai Corporation, 11 municipal corporations, 124 municipalities and 528 town panchayats to take up general revision of property tax with effect from current half-year that began on April 1.
This happened after a request from the public and residential welfare associations and other organisations to reduce the tax rate as it can increase the financial burden.
The planned revision of property tax should not be more than 50% for residential buildings and not more than 100% for rented residential and non-residential buildings, As per the order issued by the municipal administration and water supply department.
According to the Government order, The commissioner of municipal administration, commissioner of the Greater Chennai Corporation and director of town panchayats separately issue the necessary guidelines for the final revision of the property tax by following the stipulated guidelines.
Earlier, The heads of the departments requested the government to issue orders to carry out general revision of tax in the urban local bodies.
A division bench of the Madras high court recently guided the municipal administration and water supply department to take a step in context to the proposals within two weeks and report to the court in the next hearing.
The officer said the Govt. after analysing the different proposals from the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC), municipal administration and other local bodies and the directions of the Madras high court decided that general revision of property tax should be considered as per the existing provisions in the Urban Local Bodies Act.

Despite the mandatory revision of property tax for every five years, the general revision of property tax was last made in the year 1998 in Chennai. All the urban local bodies except the Chennai Corporation had seen the revision in the year 2008. After that year, they missed the similar revisions and it was due in the year 2013. So the Madras high court ordered for the revision of property tax in July 2018.
In the year 1998, the tax was revised to not more than 50% for residential buildings, not more than 100% for rented residential buildings and 150% for commercial/industrial buildings. In the year 2008, the revision was not more than 25% for residential buildings, not more than 150% for commercial and not more than 100% for industrial buildings.

Huge jolt to Congress party by the apex court’s clean chit to Modi govt on Rafale



As per the news pouring in, the Supreme Court bench led by chief justice Ranjan Gogoi today gave a big jolt to Congress party and the entire non BJP oppostion after it categorically cleared the union government of all the charges of irregularities or alleged corruption saying that the Rafale Jetfighter government to government deal was fully transparent and genuine and no unfair or wrongdoings have been committed while finalising the Rs 58000 crore deal.

The apex court very clearly stated that after personally interacting with the topmost officers of Indian Air force n studying the case in detail, it is of the unambiguous opinion that while the Indian adversaries are procuring the fighter jets of fourth n fifth generation , there is also an imperative need for the Indian government to strengthen its air force combat capacity and defence power n hence there is no harm in procuring the best of defence fighters like Rafale. It’s rather an urgent and mandatory necessity to equip the country with best of advanced fighter jets.

The court which has reserved the judgement has said that after examining the whole issue in depth n detail it has come to the conclusion that no unfair means or irregularities have been committed in finalising the Rafale Jetfighter deal.

The court is not entitled to decide 36 vs 126 Rafale or about the offset deal being given to which private party, its solely the government’s prerogative to finalise the deal and that of the vendor to decide its offset partner.

The apex court also dismissed all the petitions filed in the court challenging the Indo French Rafale deal allegedly accusing the government of high level corruption.

According to the latest news, hearing number of petitions on the Rafale issue allegedly accusing of criminality in the Indo French Jetfighter deal requesting for the Supreme Court monitored inquiry, the three judge bench led by chief justice Ranjan Gogoi asked several questions of the government on issues including lack of sovereign guarantee from the French government, selection of Indian offset partner by Dassault Aviation and need of entering into an Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) with France but finally felt satisfied that no wrong doing or corrption has been committed in the deal. It gave a clean chit to the union government thus amounting to a huge jolt to the Congress party n the anti BJP opposition.

It may be recalled that the petitions against the Rafale Jetfighter deals were filed in the apex court by Sr Advocate Prashant Bhushan, veteran journalist n former union minister Arun Shourie, Yashwant Sinha Vineet Handa, advocate n his colleague.

The Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and the above trio of Arun Shourie, Yashwant Sinha and Prashant Bhushan had been badly behind the ruling party n the prime minister Narendra Modi holding several press conferences and addressing public meetings castigating them in the Rafale deal, the charges outrightly denied by the ruling party and Anil Ambani.

The recent Supreme Court’s assertion giving clean chit to the government and dismissing their petitions have proved to be a huge jolt to the Congress party and the above trio giving a clear upper hand and advantage to the BJP led NDA government at the centre.


Meanwhile the Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said and tweeted that the honourable Supreme Court vindicated the Congress party’s stand on Rafale the JPC is the only solution to pin down the corruption in # Rafale Deal.

We have been demanding this since day one. Only JPC shall examine the file notings, PM must submit himself to JPC. Only then will we know how corruption took place in the highest echelons of power.

Shivraj Singh hopes that Rahul Gandhi fulfils the farmers loan waiver assurance in 10 days time in Madhya Pradesh



The outgoing chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Shiv Raj Singh who had ruled the state for fifteen long years, maintaining his popularity amongst all sections of the society and also famous for hindu appeasement by inducting five saints as cabinet ministers in his previous government has expressed the hope that the new Congress chief minister of Madhya Pradesh and the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi would live up to their pre election promises and fulfill the farmers loan waiver assurances within ten days of assuming the office as CM.

Mr. Shiv Raj Singh was addressing the press conference after congratulating the Congress leader Kamalnath for the victory who’d also visited his house in person to seek his cooperation in the near future.

Whole heartedly accepting his defeat at the hands of the Congress party Shiv Raj Singh Chouhan smilingly said that now his duty as the state chowkidar has begun and he is not the one to take even a day’s rest but will start working from now onwards as an opposition leader keeping tab n checks on the wrong doing of the new government.

Shiv Raj Singh assured the new Congress chief minister and the government of his fullest cooperation in the future in all the developmental works and projects of the state and assured of his total support and cooperation in all the peoples’ developmental initiatives.

He disclosed that he has urged the Congress leader Kamal Nath to continue to carry forward the ongoing schemes and initiatives introduced during the BJP government under his tenure pertaining to various developmental projects and reliefs given to dalits, farmers and the people of the lowest ebb of the society.

Chouhan said he is totally free from today after the dedicated services of the last 15 years as the state’s chief minister despite securing 40% of the largest vote chunk.

This is the decency of our democratic system that people go for change despite voting in good percentage. We have to honour the peoples’ verdict as governments n heads of the state change in democracy but the developmental works should go on uninterrptedly added Shiv Raj Singh Chouhan.

He added that though we’ve lost but the opposition in the state is very strong and this is a healthy trend in a viable democracy.

We will keep a vigilant eye and apply regulation on the government’s wrong doungs but would also cooperate fully in all the pro people developmental works irrespective of our ideological differences.

He repeated in a humorous tone : let’s see if the farmers loan are remitted and chief minister changed after 10 days after assuming office by the new Congress CM if he fails to do the needful. After all Rahul Gandhi has made a public pledge in front of the state’s populace during his public meetings in this regard.

In response to a question Shiv Raj Singh said that his maximum focus now would be on working extremely hard to ensure that the party wins maximum number of lok sabha seats from the state in the general elections of 2019 to ensure the historic victory of BJP under the dynamic and pro people leadership of prime minister Narendra Modi.

Have Modi’s and Yogi Adityanath’s oratorical skills failed as compared to Rahul’s speeches in the 3 states’ assembly elections



After the victory of the Congress in three states of the hindi heartland, two questions are being prominently asked by the politival analysts. One: is the prime minister Narendra Modi’s charisma fading out gradually n two, is the Nehru Gandhi scion who’d just a year ago taken the party’s cudles in his hand as its president being accepted by the masses of the country as a prospective alternative?

The questions seem to be quite relevant as prime minister Modi who’s leadership led to the saffron party’s incessant victory in 20 states of the country after the 2014 polls since he assumed office as prime minister jas this time lost the three BJP rule states at the hands of Congress which the saffron party considered as a non entity till now.

The speed, zeal and enthusiasm with which Rahul continued his attack on prime minister Modi n the BJP on issues of national significance particularly Rafale, unemployment, agrarian crisis, demonetisation, inflation, corruption, farmers loan waivers and his rhetorics and finally won three states, it seems that over two dozen public meetings of Prime minister Modi n over 100 meetings of star campaigner UP CM Yogi Adityanath could not exhibit any positive impact on the voters mind and hearts leading one n all to believe that the charisma of the BJP’s topmost leaders is fading out expeditiously.

Not only this but the defeat also makes it unambiguously apparent that the oratory skills of leaders like Modi, Shah and Yogi Adityanath have not been recognised and accepted by the electorates of these three states thus giving a huge rebuff to their various claims of development and so called achievements on various fronts. On the other hand Rahul Gandhi who was once branded as an immature leader as Pappu by the BJP has through his oratorical skills and eloquence given an impression of his being the leader with integrity and transparency, particularly when he repeatedly assured the crowds of these states that if his party’s chief ministers will not waive the loans of farmers within 15 days of coming to power he will change him or her immediately.

Moreover, his assurance for employment and resolving the agrarian crisis including developments prospects have also been taken extremely seriously by the electorates of the states who comprised of minorities, the farmers, the youths, women, the dalits and peoole of the lowest ebb of the society. The massive loss of BJP in the cities n towns of these states was the result of the negative impact n implications of GST and demonetisation that made millions of poor jobless and petty entrepreneurs bankrupt.

In addition to this, the three term rule of fifteen years in states like MP, Chattisgarh n in Rajasthan as well has made the BJP ministers and lawmakers over confident and proudy thinking that they are invincible who will again come back victorious in view of the Modi charisma or wave including on the Ram Mandir issue through polarisation on majoritarianism which was their wrong perception.

There is always a saturation point and 15 years period is too much which usually enthuse the voters to go for change particularly when the governments in power forget to give results as happened in all these three states of Rajasthan, Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. Now, this victory has given Rahul Gandhi and the Congress a new lease of life which was reduced to mere two states due to the thundering impact of Modi’s juggernaut. While the BJP is trying to again raise the Ram Mandir bogey to polarise the entire country in the name of Hindu saffronisation, the Congress party chief Rahul Gandhi has to playa bigger role as a chief anchor n a nucleus of the larger non BJP opposition unity with minimum basic programmes in the run up to the general elections of 2019.

He will have to show humility, sobriety, affableness and kindness while forging a grand alliance at the national level with the secular, democratic n left parties including with all the regional satraps and convince them to stand united at all costs even if the Congress party is constrained to lose their regional seat share to fight the mighty BJP led NDA. The victories of the byelections of Gorakhpur, Sitapur, Bihar, Kairana, UP, Karnataka, Maharashtra n the three states have amply made it unambiguous that if the non BJP parties unite no power on the earth can stop them replacing BJP led NDA in 2019.

Therefore, forging of a grand alliance keeping the vested political interests aside is the only and sole is the only alternative that can pave the way for a new government replacing the present one. But the way is too challenging n full of thorns? What’s your take friends?

We’ll defeat BJP in 2019 as we defeated it in three states



The elections of 2014 were very significant for me as it’s during these election that I leart lot of things, particularly from Modiji.

I learnt humility, the nerve of the country, the peoples’ mind, the problems of farmers, unemployed youths, women and the people of the lowest ebb. I learnt to connect with the masses and how to deal with them. I also learnt as to how these people were betrayed by the incumbent government.

This was what I told to my mother yesterday while interacting with her but unfortunately our prime minister Narendra Modi has failed to learn n fulfill his promises given to the people of the country.

It was indeed a very important period for me to have learnt so many hard facts of the political life. The main issues on which the Congress fought were employment, farmers’ crisis and corruption and will continue to make them our election plank in 2019 as well. We defeated the BJP in three states, the main hindi heartland and will further defeat them in 2019 as well added Rahul.

The Congress chief Rahul Gandhi said that prime minister Narendra Modi won the elections in 2014 on three main points viz corruption, employment and farmers welfare but after being elected he failed on all these fronts that ultimately led to the Congress’s victory in the three states of Rajasthan, Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. He added that corruption was committed on Rafale.

He showed the ample courage of saying on camera about Modi’s alleged complicity in corruption and added that the whole country knows about it.

Rahul Gandhi was today evening addressing a press conference after the Congress Party’s victory in three states at the party’s headquarter in New Delhi.

He looked completely relaxed, jubilant and confident and answered to number of questions of senior journalists.

Rahul said we’ll defeat the BJP in 2019 as done in the three states now. While congratulating the party leaders of the state as well as the Congress workers Rahul Gandhi pronounced them as Babbar Sher ( Lions) and appealed them to exhibit the same unity and spirit in the general elections.

On the question of BSP Supremo Mayawati criticizing the Congress leadership and going for a minus Congress alliance with Ajit Jogi’s party in the assembly elections Rahul Gandhi said : there can be differences on forming state alliances but in the context of the anti BJP’s national opposition unity to the run up for the 2019 general election we are all together and will move ahead unitedly to pose a formidable challenge to BJP in 2019.

He catagorically said that the prime minister Narendra Modi betrayed the youth, farmers and the people of the country on issues of employment, farmers well being and ridding the country of corruption and its because of these failures that the BJP has lost in the three states.

The Congress party headquarter in New Delhi was full of jubilant Congress workers bursting fire crackers and raising pro Congress and pro Rahul Gandhi slogans. Congress workers were seen dancing and merry making to the tunes of drum beats n sprinkling rose petals all around.

Time has come for the elimination of the BJP from the country says Mamata Bannerjee



Highly enthused by the victory of the Congress Party in the three states viz. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh, the West Bengal chief minister and the TMC chief Mamata Bannerjee has said that the season of elimination of the BJP led NDA from the country has started and the defeat of the latter in these state elections has proved home the point.

Speaking to the media Mamata Bennerjee said these shameful defeats of the saffron party will now open the new expeditious chapter of non BJP opposition unity in the country, particularly in view of the fast approaching general elections of 2019 and assured that the process of unification will now go ahead with more expedience and credibility.

It may be recalled that the West Bengal chief minister and TMC chief Mamata Benarjee was in the forefront of initiating the non opposition unity efforts and was the first leader who took credit to initiate the exercise by personally meeting all the opposition leaders viz Sonia Gandhi, Sharad Yadav, Sharad Pawar, Akhilesh Yadav, Chandra Babu Naidu, Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Benerjee n others and was also present in the Congress JD(U) government formation n swearing in ceremony in Bengaluru where the entire conglomeration of anti BJP leadership was present including the former PM H. D. Devgowda.

Thereafter the cudgles of the unity efforts to form the national grand alliance were taken over by the Andhra CM n Telegu Desam Party chief N. Chandra Babu Naidu who ‘d till now met all the opposition leaders and convened the meeting on 11th, 12th December in New Delhi after meeting all the party chiefs and state CMs opposed to the BJP.

In the meanwhile, the Congress victory in three states have further enthused the spirit and moral of the main proponent of non BJP unity Chandra Babu Naidu thus inviting the statement of full fledged support of Mamata Bannerjee as well.

In this whole development , the BJP Supremo Mayawati who broke the alliance with Congress Party in Chattisgarh and contested with Ajit Jogi’s support in Chattisgarh n alone in Rajasthan and MP losing in majority of seats ( picture still not clear) is completely mum and has not issued any congratulatory message till yet despite her beng the part and parcel of the non BJP opposition unity efforts and herself venturing on her own to be one of the prime ministerial candidate of this alliance.

However, N.Chandrababu Naidu including the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi had already made it crystal clear that the leadership issue would be resolved after the general election n there would be no prume ministerial candidate of the proposed grand alliance.

According to the reliable sources, both Mamata Bannerjee and Mayawati were trying to project themselves as the prime ministerial candidates of the grand alliance though not directly but sending signals, sidelining Rahul Gandhi but after today’s massive victory of Congress in three states it’s almost definite that the Nehru Gandhi scion has emerged as the strongest leader of the non BJP opposition unity, also being the chief of a 135 year old party having full fledged party organisation till block levels from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari n also having ruled the country for 60 protracted years.

But despite all this there lots of challanges to be confronted by him at the hands of the regional leaders always trying to establish their political supremacy by asking for the maximum seat share particularly leaders like Akhikesh Yadav, Mayawati n Mamata Bennerjee.

Congress Party’s victory in three states makes Rahul the nucleus of the anti BJP opposition nationally



The Congressmen are jubilant today and so might be its chief Rahul Gandhi who has finally proved himself as the force to reckon with and the undisputed leader of the grand alliance being formed in the run up for the 2019 general elections.

What happens in 2019 and whether the Modi rule is dethroned or not, in the general elections, is still unpredictable but the spate of triumphs for Congress in the three major states Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh where the Nehru Gandhi scion n young Congress chief , 20 year younger to PM Modi, has worked so hard, have definitely made one thing quite unambiguous that Modi, Shah n Yogi Adityanath’s charisma is on a decline, if not fully but surely to a great extent who’d left no stone unturned by their histrionics and oratory to ensure their ruling party’s victory at the hustings, but unfortunately failed. The political graph of Rahul Gandhi n the Congress Party therefore seems to be on the ascendence.

There had been opinion poll predictions which showed the Congress winning in two states or in one state of Rajasthan but the way it won in all the three states as of now, it has become absolutely clear that not only has the anti incumbency factor played a mojor role in these elections but the charisma of Rahul Gandhi has too has worked in influencing the dalits, farmers, youths, students, women, minorites and the people of the lowest ebb of the society.

While it can’t be denied that the Congress leaders like Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot, Kamalnath, Scindia and Baghel have played a major role in reviving the party in all the three states respectively, but Rahul Gandhi’s intense campaigning on issues like alleged Rafale scam, farmers’ crisis n suicides, deteriorating agrarian sector, increasing unemployment, and the rhetorics of Modiji have definitely paid dividends as the people of these states outrightly rejected the saffron party and its efforts of polarisation thus giving a clear indication that it wants a change for sure.

The way prime minister Narendra Modi led BJP has won all the state elections in 20 states hands down after coming to power at the centre in 2014 including in states like UP n Assam, the strongholds of Congress n the Samajwadi party, it looked as if the Modi factor has assumed an invincible proportion and status but in just a year’s time after these incessant victories, the dexterity with which the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi had through his hectic campaigning n incessant attack on the incumbent government on various pivotal issues like Rafale, agrarian crisis, demonetisation, inflation, farmers suicides, naxal attacks, women insecurity n GST etc the way the 135 year old party has defeated the BJP in these three states proving his mettle, it has become unambiguous that a new political alternative with Rahul Gandhi as its leader is in a making that may pose a formidable n strong challenge to PM Narendra Modi and NDA in 2019 with the entire non BJP opposition leaders backing him undisputedly.

The Congress’s victory in these states has also taught the over ambitious BSP supremo Bahan Mayavati a strong lesson, who’d betrayed the Congress n gone for alliance in Chattisgarh with Ajit Jogi who’d hardly won any seat and are being negligibly counted in the catagory of others.

Conclusively, it can be said that the entire moves of the BJP and its various saffron outfits including the assurances of the top most leaders to the electorates of these three states pertaining to Ram Temple construction, development or for their over all socio economic, agricultural or other welfare have not fructified and the electorates preferred to go for the Congress party. This unambiguosly show that alleged polarisation efforts of the ruling political dispensation and its various off shoots in the name of Ram Temple construction at Ayodhya has not worked with people believing more on issues like employment generation, relief to farmers, communal harmony, loan waivers, controlling inflation, curbing corruption, women security, improving their living standards and programme oriented governments. And have therefore voted for change.

If we assess and analyse the impact of these elections in the forthcoming general elections, the BJP’s defeat in these three states has resulted in losing about 35 to 40 Lok Sabha seats. The saffron party has won 63 Lok Sabha seats from these five states in 2014 elections giving only 6 seats to Congress and 14 to others. According to political analysts these semifinal elections have added glory and weitage to the prestige and status of the Congress party n its leader Rahul Gandhi and will definitely enthuse the non BJP opposition parties to give a formidable challenge to the BJP led NDA whose leader is PM Narendra Modi.

What’s your take friends?

Saints addressing rally for Ram Temole construction at Ramleela ground at New Delhi


Under the banner of Viraat Dharma Sabha convened by the Indraprastha Vishwas hindu parishad today thousands of protagonists of Ram Temple construction at ayodhya today gathered in thousands at ram Keela grounds from different parts and states of the country and demanded in a unified voice a central government ordinance to enable construction of a magnificient Temple of Lord Rama at Ayodhya, a protracted demand of the BJP n its various offshoots since the demolition of Babri mosque in 1992 by thousands of kar sewaks which led to several aftermath riots and bomb blasts in different parts of the country. The huge congregation of the saffron clad saints of various hindu organisations, leaders of Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh and VHP, BJP leaders n volunteers and those blindly believing in the ethos and heritage of Lord Rama and the right wing activists like Bajrang Dal volunteers n activists of the saffron party offshoots dressed in saffron robes raising Jai Shri Ram n pro Ram Mandir slogans holding thousands of saffron flags converged at sprawling Ram Leela ground and heard their leaders vociferously demanding the immediate issuance of the central ordinance, and nothing less than that for early construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya.

The fountain head of the BJP and its main political think tank RSS general secretary ( Sarsangh karyawahak) Bhaiyyaji Joshi in his eloquent n furious speech demanded from the Modi government immediate inyroduction of a central ordinance to pave the way for construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya saying that they are not begging but its their suitable n genuine right and also of the party in power, the parliament and the government.

He added that the prestige of the judiciary and the courts should remain intact but at the same time the judicial system and the government should establish proper coordination to ensure that the feeling, emotions and the sentiments of the majority people should be fully respected and the temple should be constructed at Ayodhya which was also the pledge of the government in power. Swamy Parmanand of Virat Dharma Sabha has in his address given an open ultimatum to the government of prime minister Narendra Modi that if Ram temple is not constructed at the earliest lakhs of Ram Bhakts would not tolerate this betrayal and would continue their struggle with more vigour and vitality.

He added that if the BJP is accused of exploiting the Ram Temple issue at the time of elections and not fulfilling the promise after it comes to power then other opposition partirs should help in the construction of Ram Temple forthwith and resolve this vexed issue once for all. Swamy Parmanand Giri said that the presence of thousands of Ram Bhakts at Ram Leela grounds have proved beyond doubt that history has been created in Delhi today and the government of the day as well as the honourable court would have to understand the urge of the countrymen n resolve the issue once for all.

The saffron clad Sadhvi Ritambara said that the Hidu community of the counyry has now fully awakened in favour of Tam Temple and it will be built in Ayodhya at all costs. The international working president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad Alok Kumar reminded the ruling party government of its pre election promise to construct Ram Temple in Ayodhya and said that we are again requesting it to take take note of this demand during the incoming winter session of the parliament.

He openly issued challenge to the government that in case it failed to bring the ordinance or legislation pertaining to the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya in the winter session the Bhartiya Janata Party led government will have to face the consequences in the general elections. Swamy Anubhutanand swamy has in his address said that if the government fails in its duty to construct the Ram Temple in Ayodhya the entire Ram Bhakts would built the Ram Temple on their own in the sameway as they demolished the Babri Mosque issuing unambiguous warning to the BJP led government at the centre.

According to the press release issued by Vishwa Hindu Publicity chief Mahendra Rawat other who spoke on this ocassion were Jagadguru Ramanandacharya, Swamy Hansdevacharyaji Maharaj, Swamy Chinmayyanand Saraswati, VHP Vice president Champat Rai, Mahamandleshwar Nawal Kishore Das Maharaj, Jain Muni Lokesh Maharaj, Vivekanand Saraswatiji Maharaj n several other prominent saints.

The 94 year old king of Masalaas, Mahashay Dharam Pal of MDH, a multi millionaire was also felicitated on the stage. But the chief of the Art of Living Shri Shri Ravi Shakar Prasad who had been always at the firefront to resolve the Ram Janma Bhoomi Babri Mosque issue between the two communities was conspicuous by his absense. May be he had been intentionally sidelined say sources.

RSS, VHP n entire Sant Samaj demand ordinance for Ram Temple construction at Ayodhya



Thousands of Ram Bhakhs attend Rally at Delhi today demanding bringing of a central ordinance for the construction of Lord Rama's Temple at Ayodhya

As the national elections of 2019 are nearing the demand for the construction of Ram Mandar is also gearing up nationally with the Bhartiya Janata Party, its various saffron offshoots, the sadhu sants of various hues and the devout hindus all over the country being mobilised n channelised to the core in the name of construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya thus polarising the vote bank of majority community at the all India level.

Since the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, the issue of construction of Ram Temple at the disputed site has been repeatedly exploited by the right wing parties in every election for securing majority votes and acknowledge power at the centre and in the states including the largest state of the country, Uttar Pradesh but this vexed issue has not been resolved till date nor Ram Temple built say the Hindu protagonists.

Now the time has come to exercise pressure on the central government led by the BJP oriented NDA to come out with an ordinance to make the reality come true before it’s too late say the Saint community of the country who’d gathered today in thosands in Delhi to demand construction of Ram Temple through the central ordinance come what may.

This is not the first massive rally of the entire Saint community, Vishwas Hindu Parishad n the Rashtriya swayam Sewak Sangh in the recent months but similar mobilisation campaigns were also organised in New Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium n Lucknow on 24th n 25th October where even the Shiv Sena Chief Udhav Thakrey also came from Mumbai n took a pledge for the contruction of the Lord Rama temple after castigating the successive BJP and Narendra Modi governments for always exploiting votes to assume power but backing down after achieving political victories.

Even the Uttar Pradesh chief minister, a devout hindi and the biggest proponent of Ram Mandir construction at Ayodhya, saffron clad Yogi Adityanath has already announced about the construction of a 170 feet tallest Ram statue at Ayodhya costing more than 350 crores including illuminating Ayodhya on every Deepawali festival with 4 lakh oil lamps thus keeping the Ayodhya issue inyact n popularised.

Today’s rally in New Delhi was a hugest from the point of view of impressive attendence of thousands of saints and the volunteers of BJP, Bajrang Dal, VHP, RSS and other off shoots of the saffron party ruling at the centre as well as in about 20 states of the country.

The way speeches of the political leaders of the ruling party, the saint communities, the right wing parties especially the BJP, VHP and RSS have concentrated their entire oratory on the Ram temple issue and the subsequently organising huge religious congregations of the saffron clad saints taking place in various parts of the country, it seems that BJP n its fountain head organisations RSS as well as Vishwa Hindi Parishad have directly or indirectly chosen the path of entire polarisation of the majority community on the Ram Temple issue with issues like development, employment, inflation, law and order and retrenchment in jobs etc taking the back seat.

Today’s rally was unique and impressive in the sense that the attendence of the majoriry communty favoring early construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya was in thousands saffronising the entire political environment and every speaker from Bhaiyyagi Maharàj of RSS to every important saint of India demanding the central ordinance on Ram Temple at Ayodhya in anger, aggressive and furious mode even going to the extent of demeaning the BJP government at the centre led by PM Narendra Modi of not come true to its pre election pledges of constructing the Ram Temple at Ayodhya even after 4.5 years of coming to power at the centre with a historic majority.


The recent shameful eruption of Bulandshahar riots killing two including a police inspector, the riots pf Saharanpur etc in UP n lynchings in the name of cow vigilantism in various states of the counrty in the past are the dangerous signals if not controlled or countered impartially for establishing peace, amity n communal harmony in the country credibly n strongly. The issue of RamTemple construction n disputed site of Ayodhya is in the Supreme Court of India and therefore subjudice. The law of the land should prevail in the country n the judicial verdict respected at all costs.

However, the political analysts say that raising of Ram Temple issue right at the time of national elections and pre meditated ocurrances of riots like that of Bulandshahar riots etc n lynching of innocents in the name of cow vigilantism in various parts of the country are ill concieved designs and notions allegedly created with ulterior political motives to derive favorable political outcome. This is highly unbecoming on the part of political leaders who take oath in the name of constitution but unfortunately play with the sentiments of the countrymen in the name of religion, caste and other narrow considerations not good and acceptable in a democratic secular society.
What’s your say friends?

The diabolical killings in Bulandshahar UP gives an unambiguous indication that the ominous signs of dividing the society in the name of majoritarianism are taking apparent shape in the near future with fundamentalist forces raising their head above to allegedly derive maximum political advantage in view of the forthcoming national election of 2019.

When the saffron clad devout Hindu politician of BJP, MP from Gorakhpur took the oath of office as the chief minister of the largest state of the country and even before that, while he was campaigning for his party candidates in the assembly election of UP Yogi Aditya Nath had literally pledged to make the state crime free where socio communal peace will prevail in all earnestness.

Despite being a devout Hindu, the chief minister had assured one and all of communal harmony n resurrection of the deteriorating law and order machinery of the state inherited from.the previous government in UP.

After assuming the office he relentlessly declared encounters of the hardcore criminals and claimed that this will led to complete peace in the state and emergence of real Ram Rajya.

But what happened ultimately ? The complaints of alleged fake encounters and the recent killing of two innocents including a police inspector Subodh Singh at the hands of mob lynchers some of whom are alleged to be from his own party or Bajrang Dal as being given to understand from various media reports have unambiguously exposed the ruling political dispensation of the state and led people to believe that an open game of polarisation in the name of allegedly creating communal division in the name of cow vigilantism or fabricated rumours have taken the front seat while issues of development, employment, peoples welfare, women security n communal harmony a back seat.

The all of a sudden though pre strategic occurance of communal riots in Bulandshar on account of the rumours of cow slaughter which is ban in Uttar Pradesh on the day when the UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath was addressing people in Rajasthan assuring electorates of allegedly ousting the Owaisies from Hyderabad for their alleged communal oratory in case the saffron party wins in Telengana, killing two innocents and loss to properties worth crores of Rupees is infact a very dangerous trend that is emerging in our country comprising of diverse culture, languages, heritage, religions and communities believing in secularism and peaceful co existence.

What is more worrisome is the fact that despite the earlier occurances of certain deaths in view of rumours in the name of child lifting and cow vigilantism in various states of the country, Uttar Pradesh again witnesses another riot taking the toll of two and creating rukus in the otherwise peaceful environment of Uttar Pradesh which has hardly come to terms after the massive Saharanpur n other dreadful riots of the state.

According to the political analysts the highly communal versions and speeches of some leaders of political parties and various communal outfits at work at the grass root levels play a major role in fomenting such communal troubles which has only one aim to divide the society on communal lines and polarise the entire society to beget votes and win elections thus playing with the peoples’ sentiments.

The most sorry state of affairs in such situation is the utter failure of the state’s intelligence agencies, the local intelligent units and the police force who fail to gather pre emptive information about the possible mishappenings in the future.

Had the intelligence apparatus of the state police or the Bulandshahar district been quite vigilant before time in assessing the situation and the possible provocation, the state’s police force, riot police or the PAC could have been alerted in time and the aweful sitiation could have been averted before going out of hand.

The way the state’s law and order apparatus have shown alertness and enthusiasm in grabbing 30 rioters having booked them for murder and rioting and is still trying to bring more men to justice, after the commission of the riots, the police force could/ should have been vigilant prior to this grave mishappening as well.

But this has not happened n Bulandshahar was literally on fire by the mobsters. Time has come now, that the election commission of India and the law enforcing agencies at the central as well as the state level including those at the helm of the political dispensation will have to take urgent initiatives to exercise setious restraint on the leaders as well as the lawmakers to discourage them from issuing inflammatory communal speeches or statements which not only encourage the rank n file of the respective parties to create division in the society on communal lines but also lead to riots that claim lot of innocent lives as was the case in Bulandshahar in Uttar Pradesh.

Let’s all therefore pledge to maitain peace, calm, harmony, brotherhood and amity in the socirty n give rebuff to religious and narrow communal considerations and issues in the near future.

In fact, some political observers feel that extremist section is being intentionally and pre meditatedly encouraged to fabricate riots in the state for political gains. It is highly harmful for the nation. It certainly proves the lethargic and lopsided functioning of the govt machinery. People are questioning: How long will the riots claim innocent lives ?What’s your take friends?
