pictures of 41 bravehearts who martyred themselves in the line of duty

Among the total martyrs of CRPF, the maximum number of martyrs are from Uttar Pradesh numbering 18 followed by Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Haryana, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, West Bengal,Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. Salutes to all these valiant soldiers who have sacrificed themselves on the line of duty protecting the 125 crore Indians from the enemies perpetrating havoc in our motherland at the behest of neighbouring Pakistan. Two soldiers from the himalayan state of Uttarakhand, the land of abode of Gods Uttarakhand also laid down their precious lives in the prime of their youth.

The two soldiers of Central Reserve Police Force who were martyred at Avantipora, in Pulwama district in the Fidayeen attack were Mohanlal Raturi from Uttarkashi, Garhwal and Veerendra Singh Rana from Udham Singh Nagar, Khateema. About 39 soldiers with valour have sacrificed their lives in various operations belonging to Khatima during the last few years in the service of the nation. It may be recalled that on 14th of February about 78 buses, trucks and highly guarded vehicles were going towards Srinagar from the Jammu Transit camp carrying 2547 soldiers to Srinagar to be oosted to various strife ridden locations of Srinagar valley.

When the Army n paramilitary convoy passed through Avantipora in Pulwama district about thirty kilometresaway from Jammu, a car loaded with 30 Kilograms of RDX rammed into the CRPF bus of 54 batallion of CRPF killing about 41 personels including a major. Veerender Singh belonging to Udham Singh Nagar Khatima belonged to Bhuriagardhi village and is the father of two children. His wife got the message of Veerender’s martydom on Thursday night by an Army officer on phone.

The news spread like a shock wave in the family as well as the nrarby licalities n thereafter in the entire state. Late Veerendra Singh has two brothers Jai Ram Singh and Rajesh Rana. Jairam Singh is a retired Subedar while Rajesh Rana isan agriculturist. Another martyr Mohan Lal Raturi is from Bankot, Uttar kashi. He was fifty five years old. Father of two sons and three daughters Mohan Lal untimely death has put the entire family in the syate of tremendous shock n financial jeopardy. Mohan Lal Raturi got employment in 1988 and since then he had been on duty in various challenging and strife prone areas of Jammu n Kashmir, Naxal prone Chattisgarh, Jallandhar, Punjab, Jammu n Srinagar.

The martyrdom of all the above 41 jawans have put their families in immense financial jeopardy and majority of the jawans hailed from hapless n poor family backgrounds being the only earning members of the families. The government of India and the respective state governments from where they actually belinged should give them Rs. One Crore Rs as financial compensation, a govt job to next of the kin n a house to live in. Om Shanti.

MP CM Kamalnath announces financial compensation of Rs. one crore, a house and a govt job for the kin of the Pulwama Martyr. Would other state CMs’ follow suit ?

MP CM Kamalnath With PM Narendra Modi ( file pic)

While the entire nation is mourning the martyrdom of 42 valiant soldiers of Central Reserve Police Force who’ve been martyred at Avantipora in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Kamalnath has while paying his heartfelt tributes to the jawans who sacrificed their precious lives in the line of duty has announced a financial compensation of Rs. One Crore, a house and a government job to next of the kin of one of it’s soldiers belonging to Madhya Pradesh.

The chief minister Kamalnath was forthright in announcing the financial compensation with a house n a govt job to the next of the kin of the deceased soldier of CRPF. As per the latest reports about 41 soldiers have been martyred in the Pulwama attack in Awantipora, Kashmir and several others, probably five or six critically injured under treatment in govt hospitals.

Maximum number of the soldiers who sacrificed themselves in this high intensity fidayeen attack belong to various districts of Uttar Pradesh followed by Bihar, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Himachal Pradesh n Uttarakhand. This is the biggest fidayeen attack of 2019 while in 2016 too a paramilitary convoy was attacked by terrorists killing more than fifteen personels of the security forces followed by the URI attack in the CRPF camp claiming about nineteen precious lives.

Though no amount of financial compensation can compensate for the irreperable losses of precious lives of our valiant jawans but the hard fact of life is that their hapless families had to ultimately survive and nurture their respective families who’d lost their beloved father, son, brother or a near n dear ones. Hence adequate financial compensation with entire service benefits including pension and housing facilities are mandatory for the bereaved families who’d lost their only earning member of the family.

There is no denying a fact that our troopers in borders, hinterlands n on mountains secure our country by confronting the enemies under extremely odd n challenging situations and sacrifice their lives while securing the lives of 125 crore Indians.

Therefore no amount of financial compensation can match with the myriad amount of sacrifices they make for our country.

It is believed that the chief ministers of other states follow suit and immediately announce compensation of Rs one crore, a house and a government job for next of the kin of the slained soldiers in the Pulwama attack. We fondly remember that during the tenure of Atal Behari Vajpayee as PM every Kargil martyr’s family was sanctioned a Petrol Pump n cheap housing facility in Dwarka in order to help the bereaved families survive in comfort after having lost their near and dear ones’ in the Kargil battle of 1999.

Similar Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejrival too had sanction Rs. one crore each to two policement who died while on duty and an ex servicemen. Meanwhile according to the latest news the government of Jammu n Kashmir which is under president’s rule n government of India has withdrawn the security of all the Hurriyat Conference leaders who’d been directly or indirectly allegedly aiding n abetting the home grown terrorists against India and working a Pakistan’s proxies against India’s interests. What’s your take friends?

There were two signification anti BJP protests and unity initiatives by all the non BJP opposition parties at New Delhi on the last day of parliament.

As the national elections are coming nearer the efforts of the non BJP opposition parties against the BJP led NDA n prime minister Narendra Modi are in full swing with Bengal CM holding a successful Parade ground rally in Kolkatta participated by the leaders of 22 anti BJP opposition parties.

Agriculture n horticulture land in Uttarakhand. How appropriate is it to put them on sale? Seminar at PCI on 16th February, 2019

Published

on

There have been tremendous dusenchantment and resentment amongst the right minded, educated n intellectual community of Uttarakhand about the recent amendment done by the present political dispensation allowing open sale of horticulture and agriculture lands for everyone including outsiders, obviously the big business houses and land mafia and sharks to purchase as much of lands abolishing the earlier maximum limit/ ceiling of 12.5 acres.

The Uttarakhand government has recently given the sanction to the Uttar Pradesh zamindari abolition and land reforms act, (1950 integration and uprantrn amendment order 2001 ordinance 2018). Under the new amendment the clauses 154(4) n (3) K of the act an infinite quantity of agriculture and horticulture land could be purchased by anyone for opening big industries and other forms of businesses on vast scale in Uttarakhand thus adversely impacting its demography, environment, ecology, peace, law n order situation, cultural heritage and serene beauty.

According to this new tourism policy designed to benefit the big business houses, industrialists, builders, real estate agents n corporates, the big money minting capitalists will establish big hotels, resorts, commercial institutions, private expensive hospitals, bars, restaurants, entertainment parks, eco lounges, parking areas, commercial convention centres, commercial Yoga Kendras, so called eco parks, marriage banquets, adventure tourism, branded spa centres, high profile, Ayurvedic chikitsa centres, rope ways, elevator projects etc etc by getting the status of Industry inside the state and thus purchase large tracts of land in the interior of Uttarakhand.

This arbitrary practice seems to be entirely against the sentiments and wishes of the people of Uttarakhand as well as a direct threat to its environment, ecology n demography of the 19 year old hill state.

In order to express the collective and unified protest against this anti people n anti eco friendly policies of the incumbent government of Uttarakhand n its policy makers several social and journalists’ organisations are organising a seminar cum meeting at Press club of India, New Delhi on 16th February, 2018 at 2.30 PM to be addressed by several prominent journalists and social activists who’d been relentlessly fighting n struggling on the issues of Jal, Jungle aur Jameen of Uttarakhand n outside for several decades.

The title of the seminar is Land Reforms in Uttarakhand. How aporopriate is to put the horticultural and agricultural land of Uttarakhand on sale? The seminar is being organised by Uttarakhand Patrakar Parishad in association with Uttarakhand Journalists Forum, Uttarakhand Chintan, Green Forum India, Rashtriya Uttarakhand Sabha, Think Democracy and Friends of Himalayas. The seminar is being organised across party n ideological lines and whoever interested to join the event is cordially invited.

Priyanka comes to brother’s aid ! Writes, what Rahul has been saying since long has been vindicated now

Published

on

The politics of accusations and counter accusations have hotted up after the startling revelations by ,” The Hindu,” newspaper about the MOD note that raised objections about carrying out of the parallel negotiations by the PMO with the French government on controvertial Rafale deal and the fact not allegedly brought into the knowledge of the honourable Supreme Court of India hearing the matter earlier, who gave clean chit to the government of BJP led NDA.

While this startling n shocking revelation with the copies of the MOD letter of objection published in The Hindu newspaper as well as other news portals including social networking sites has put the ruling party government in a defensive posture, the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has also enhanced his attack blaming the ruling party of pre strategically hiding the fact from the people of the country, the opposition parties n the Apex court of the country thus vindicating his ( Rahul’s) stand that wrongs have been definitely done/ committed while refinalising the Rafale deal turning down the original UPA deal in order to allegedly singularly benefit Reliance company of Anil Ambani thus escalating the cost of Rafale Jetfighters by bringing its number from 126 to 36 in a 59 thousand crore contract.

The Congress chief Rahul addressed a well attended press conference on this issue as well and blamed PM Modi of the wrong doings in the Rafale deal n said that after the startling revelations in the report of The Hindu it has now became an open n shut case , a black n white confirmation.

Meanwhile, Rahul’s sister and newly appointed AICC general Secretary, uncharge of eatern Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi has today posted a small piece on her FB page/ time line on this controvertial issue which is as below:

Congress president Rahul Gandhi has been saying it for the long time, that the Defence ministry officials had objected to the government about the PMO interfering in the # Rafale deal.

The “parallel negotiations” conducted by the Prime minister’s office with the French side, weakened the negotiations from the MOD, which was beneficial for the French.

No prizes for guessing that # Modi wanted the deal to help AA and that is why he played a vital role in the # Rafale Scam.

With these comments she also posted the Hindu story on these startling revelations.
