The deputy chief minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia today went to the Khichripur house of the 14 year old late Nishita Negi and presented the cheque of Rs. Five lakhs to the bereaved and distressed family of the deceased budding footballer who shockingly got drowned in a river in Australia last month losing her precious life. Nitisha’s house comes under the legislative jurisdiction of Manish Sisodia frm where he was elected as the lawmaker.

Late Nishita had gone to Australia to participate in the international games at the school level on behalf of the Schools Federation of India, Delhi state alongwith several other budding sportspersons. Nitisha who alongwith four of her colleagues went to the riverside beach was drowned and shockingly could not be saved due to the negligence of the authorities concerned.

Her dead body was brought to Delhi after three days, was kept in Garhwal Bhawan for ANTIM DARSHAN and later on cremated at Nigam Bodh Ghat. Hundreds of people from and outside Uttarakhand bid tearful farewell to this adoloscent girl and an outstanding budding footballer. Four other girl students who were drowned in the river due to the high rise pressure tides, however were rescued but not Nitisha who died of axphyxiation. There was lot of annoyance, anger and outrage within the Uttarakhand community then.

The deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia had also ordered a secretary level probe to nail those responsible for the negligence but of no avail. The Delhi deputy chief minister has however been extremely helpful to the family and has explored the possibility of 5 lakh Rupees assistence to the distressed family of outstanding budding sportsperson late Nishita Negi.

While appreciating the deputy CM’s ambivalent gesture we hope the inquiry launched into Nishita’s sad demise would definitely bring fruitful results and those responsible for negligence would be duly punished.

After the massive fire in the Sanvri village under the jurisdiction of the Mori block in Uttarkashi that ravaged completely the entire village devastating each and every house to the ground taking the lives of several pet animals, the chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Rawat visited the affected village and distributed cheques worth of Rs 49 lakhs to every affected family and also shared the agony with the victimised families.

While no human life was claimed a good number of pet animals got literally burnt in this massive fire. While the media highlighted this issue to a great extent the monetary compensation per house and per family still seems to be little or not enough particularly keeping in view the extensive damaged caused and the village razed to the ground completely.

The affected people are demanding for more as the loss is extensive and beyond convenient repair. This is the greatest tragedy in the recent times as the entire village has been razed to ground with myriad loss to the houses and animal lives. Thank God there was no loss of human life. The district magistrate Mr. Chouhan left no stone unturned to do his best to help the villagers by reaching the spot quite in time with whatever possible means of rescue.

The gesture of the chief minister Trivendra Rawat was also appreciable who tried to do his best to deliever immediate financial relief to the victimised and shattered families. Meanwhile, majority of the peoole are of the view that in this hour of grave crisis the lawmakers of Uttarakhand across partyline should atleast donate their one month’s salary to financially help the victimised 45 to 50 families of the fire ravaged village SANVRI under MORI, block in Uttarkashi to become a shining outstanding example of philanthropy in Uttarakhand who otherwise incur lakhs and lakhs of Rupees in their election campaigning.


I was just going through the highly thought provoking detailed article of Sanjay Bhartiya in facebook and was greatly impressed and influenced by his writing on the lifestyle and the simplistic way of living of the chief minister of Tripura Manik Sarkar and his wife who just retired as secretary of the social welfare board. Manik Sarkar who is the chief minister of Tripura since 1998 draws a meagre salary of merely Rs 9200 every month which is deposited in the CPM party fund and the party allocates him Rs. 500 for the entire month.

He washes his own clothes and so his former Secretary wife. Manik Sarkar has now crossed 65 and after tremendous reluctance as the age does not permit him to wash his own clothes his wife has bought a washing machine out of her own pension. The total expenses of the chief ministers house that includes washing of clothes to curtains etc are borne by his wife from her pension. Manik Rao and his wife travel by rickshaw and lead the life of a commoner with the bank balance of just 10 to 15 thousand Rupees at the most.

The total assest declared by this left CM of Tripura since 1998 is merely 2.5 lakh that includes a dilapidated tin shed accomodation of his late mother. Both the husband and wife have no house, no personal or government vehicle, no air conditioner, no cooler and nothing luxurious which may give an impression of a comfort living. While the chief minister is engaged for most of the hours with piles of files on his table, his wife works and stays with Asha workers for the upliftment of the poor and the economically deprived women and children.

Just imagine on the one hand you have chief ministers like Manik Sarkar believing and practising the notion of KHALI HAATH AAYE THE, KHAALI HAATH JAYENGE and working tirelessly for the overall welfare, well being and development of a backward state like Tripura and its inhabitants including tribals for the last 19 years winning every election with majority hands down and gaining peoples’ faith and confidence incessantly, on the other hand you have politicians and Yogis amassing myriad wealth and properties worth thousand and thousand of crores wearing saffron robes and appearing on television channels given hollow sermons to countrymen.

Just imagine on the one hand you have a CM with just 10 thousand Rupees as bank balance despite at the helm of the state for the last 20 years while on the other hand you have politicians and Yogi’s in saffron robes minting the assest worth more than a lakh crore in just 4 years of a little time. What a tragedy of an open democracy?
Manik Rao’s example is indeed the rarest of the rare one not only in India but globally as well.


The former Uttarakhand chief minister Harish Rawat having lost from both the legislative assembly seats of the state during the previous election and leading to the shameful defeat of the division ridden Congress party in Uttarakhand is a disturbed politician these days.

The reason being he is being pre strategically isolated and sidelined by his own party president of the state namely Pritam Singh, the former cabinet minister in all the state Congress governments including in Rawat’s cabinet. One time a close confidante of Harish Rawat, like the former state Congress chief Kishore Upadhyay, who too is extremely anti Rawat, though leading an inactive political life these days, Pritam Singh is the son of late Gulab Singh Rawat a towering leader of the backwards and Rajputs in Jaunsaar Bhabher area and minister in the Uttar Pradesh government representing Uttarakhand. Pritam Singh is a five time MLA from Chhakrauta, Garhwal, Uttarakhand and is quite eloquent, youthful and carries a good image amongst his electorates and the organisation.

After the horrible defeat of the Congress Party in Uttarakhand the former CM Harish Rawat, a septuagenerian, who instead of leading a comfortable retired life has preferred to be more mobile and active politically by attending each and every socio political programme, function and event in UK, Delhi and even Mumbai and is easily available to accept the invitations. He perhaps intends to be the next time MP or is again eyeing on the chief ministership of Uttarakhand thinking that since the Himalayan state has always gone for change after every five year, in 2022 the party is again poised for a re come back. However, the new emerging youthful leadership like Pritam Singh, the present Congress state chief now see himself as the new force and the CM in the waiting after four years.

Hence, he want to keep his bete noire Harish Rawat away from the Uttarakhand politics, by all means. Sources reveal that the former CM Harish Rawat is never informed or invited in any party programme in any part of Uttarakhand. The group of Rawat has been completely sidelined and majority of them have either joined the Pritam Singh camp or joined BJP. The situation has gone awry to such an extent for Harish Rawat that he is now compelled to express his annoyance, reservation and complaint in social networking sites like facebook and Twitter, not even worried that such posts will invite the attention of media about the increasing inner party dissensions in Uttarakhand Congress involving the former CM and the current party president thus making mockery of the party in print and electronic press.

Actually, the crux of the matter is that the Uttarakhand Pradesh Congress Committee has recently organised a successful motor cycle rally against the increasing price rise and poverty in the state capital Dehradun and Harish Rawat was not invited, not even informed. The rally was a grand success and acknowledged tremendous success. In the past programmes too Harish Rawat wasn’t invited. He is therefore badly furious but has no option but to air his grievances through the social networking sites like FB and twitter. Just have a look at the FB post of Rawat. Harish Rawat has, while congratulated the rally with a heavy heart but has expressed his annoyance, in the form of a complaint that had he been informed by the state president Pritam Singh, he would have loved to participate in the motor cycle rally, but he wasn’t.

He further writes that it would be in the fitness of things if he is informed and invited about the future programmes of Congress party in Uttarakhand as we the Congressmen should be united in order to confront the future challenges. But political analysts say that when Harish Rawat was the chief minister he too sidelined and cut to size all his political detractors and those who were capable, intelligent and asset for the party. After all it was during his tenure only that heavy weight leaders like Satpal Maharaj, former CM Vijay Bahuguna, former State Congress Chief Yashpal Arya and several MLAs were compelled to leave Congress and join BJP who are now enjoying the fruits of power and are ministers in the state BJP government.


The traumatic incidents of leopard attacks on the inhabitants of Uttarakhand, particularly the women under the jurisdiction of Pauri Garhwal district are on the rise and the government of the state, particularly the forest department has literally failed to either to capture these wild man eater cats who’d let loose their reign of terror in the himalayan state of Uttarakhand or kill them as humans are moreimportant than anything else.

Just a day or two ago in GAGVADSIUN PATTI of Pauri Garhwal district a leopard had literally attacked a women and grabbed her from the back through its bloody thorny pawns making deep wounds in the morning hours when she alongwith her friends have gone to the nearby forest to collect fodder for cows and buffaloes.

After her women co mates who had also accompanied the injured in the nearby jungle for cutting the grass for the pet animals created furore and loud noise, did the leopard apprehensively, left the injured woman’s grip and fled leaving behind the highly terrified victim in utter shock and anguish, completely bleeding in pain with a wound measuring an inch or so.

The woman was lucky enough that she could protect herself after the commotion created by her friends and companions. GAGVARSIUN PATTI is just near the main Pauri township and the woman belonged to the Kehar village. There is a cohesive jungle in this area and leopards sighting during nights in particular is a common phenomena. Just a weak ago a leopard has entered a village cowshed in one of the villages’ of Kapolsiun patti in Kaljikhal block of Pauri Garhwal and had made few pets its food, injuring several others before fleeing.

Last month one of the leopards’ entered a house in Debradun city and was there for several hours creating havoc. There was panic all around. The police reached the scene in time but it took about four hours for the forest staff to reach the spot and that too without a tranquilising gun.

The person concerned possesing the tranquilising gun was in Haridwar. It was the good luck of the local populace that nobody was injured. However, the leopard later on ran away leaving everybody highly relieved. Similarly, in addition to several other such incidents, in October 2016, two women were seriously injured in a leopard attack in Almora district of Uttarakhand.

The incident happened at Pilkha village in Hawalabagh block of Almora. Victims Puja Devi, 22, and Uma Devi, 34, had gone to a forest for fodder when they were attacked by the leopard. Other women raised the alarm following which the leopard ran away but by then the beast had severely injured the two. Both were admitted to the district hospital where there condition is stated to be serious.

The forest officials, who rushed to the site of incident, later visited the hospital and handed over immediate assistance of Rs 5,000 each to families of both women. Villagers appealed to the forest officials for a prompt action to nab these man eaters.
Uttarakhand these days is in the severe grip of these freely roaming leopards who have become a grave threat to the lives of the women, children and the senior citizens who can’t ever feel secured during the day time.

The government of the day should do something credible to bring this critical situation under control. Saving of wild life is important but not at the cost of human lives should be the basic mantra of the government.

The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Rawat and the Union minister of state for Textiles Ajay Tamta has assured a delegation of few Uttarakhandies living in Delhi to provide maximum financial help to the poor family of the deceased fifteen year old budding footballer Nitisha who met her sad end at Glenegl beach waters in Adelaide, Australia on 10th of Decembar.

The delegation met the CM Uttarakhand and the union textile minister of state at their respective Delhi state residences yesterday under the leadership of social activist and DPMI chairman Dr. Vinod Bacheti. In an half an hour parleys the Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat expressed his heartfelt tributes for the adoloscent girl and an outstanding footballer and also assured of his government’s maximum financial assistence to the family of the deceased.

The delegation also included the grand father of late Nitsha primariliy hailing from Uttarakhand but born and brought up in Delhi. The union state textile minister simultaneously also assured of help from his side to the maximum at the earliest. But what would be the amount of financial aid has not been revealed till yet. It’s really unforunate and shocking that 15 year old Nitisha Negi who had gone to participate in the pan global students games at Australia got drowned in the high tide waters of Glenegl beach at Adelaide Australia due to the negligence and complacence of the coaches who are allegedly being patronised by some higher ups and no action what so ever has been taken against them till date including the management of intl. School Federation of India who managed the whole event.

A candle march vigil is being organised by the Indian community at Adelaide Australia on 24th December to pay their heartfelt tributes to the departed soul and for demanding impartial and transparent investigation into the whole matter. Nitisha lived in Khichripur and belonged to lower middle class family. Losing such a brilliant and outstanding budding footballer at such a tender age is the hugest tragedy for the parents.

The deputy chief minister of NCT of Delhi has already instituted an enquiry at the Secretary of education level and had asked for the report within a months’ time. The Uttarakhandies living in Delhi and other metrolpolises of the country including in the 17 year old state are extremely furious and angry over the untimely death by drowning in Australia of Nitisha and have demanded the most stringent punishment for those directly or indirectly responsible for this tragedy.



Uttarakhand is progressing by leaps and bounds as scope for ease of doing business in this 17 year old state are much much better than in any other part of the country. This was stated by the chief minister of Uttarakhand in an interview given to a national electronic channel today. Extremely confident in his versions about the state’s over all development Trivendra Singh Rawat claims that Uttarakhand’s annual per capita income is more than Rupees 1 lakh 15 thousand, even more than the national per capita income of Rs one lakh nine thousand.

Answering questions with quite ease and confidence Rawat said that while his government is concerned about the high spate of migration from villages to cities and metropolises of the country his government is equally serious  to find out ways and means through various people friendly constructive programmes and forming of a credible PALAAYAN AAYOG in order to reverse this distressing trend.

The government of Uttarakhand has recently filed an MOU for using the natural waste products for useful purposes which will not only give employment to the local populace but will also generate economy. One such constructive instance is about rightfully using the pine needles which are in abundant quantity in Uttarakhand for extracting terpentine oil and the waste residue for bio fuel.

These pine needles if not used are tremendously harmful for Uttarakhand’s agricultural lands as not only do they make the earth barren wherever they fall in large quantity but are also disastrous from the point of view of spreading jungle fires most expeditiously, which are the usual.feature in Uttarakhand hills. Answering question on demonetisation Uttarakhand chief minister lauded the prime minister Narendra Modi’s efforts in attacking the black money hoarders and prevalent of unaccounted network of ilegal money which is the key to rampant corruption prevailing in our country.

He said , demonetisation has not only discouraged the black money hoarders to a great extent but also helped in strengthening our derailed economy of fiscal deficit. Trivendra Rawat assured that his government is tirelessly working to strengthen the state’s economy by improving the performance and stature of Tourism sector which is the main source of employment and economy.



After the coming of the Bhartiya Janata Party government in Uttarakhand while it has not yet fulfilled its poll promise of appointing LOKAYUKTA in Uttarakhand even after 8 months and is not talking about the important Capital issue of making GAIRSAIN as the permanent capital of Uttarakhand as promised by its leaders from time to time, the chief minister of the seventeen year old state Trivendra Singh Rawat has definitely done one good thing important and people friendly and it is, taking the official initiative to meet the general public twice a month at BJP headquarter or at other suitable place and personally interact with the people with grievances to reslove them on the spot or if not possible, then later on, but for sure.

Trivendra Singh Rawat issued directives to all ministers as well to meet general public and people of their respective constitiencies along with officials of the relevant departments to resolve all grievances on the spot. This people friendly novel idea n practical initiative has added new dimension to it as more and more people are now coming in such one to one meetings in view of healthy output and positive resolution of their problems. On 30th October the Chief Minister Trivendra Rawat himself met lot of people with problems and tried to resolve their long lasting agonies.

The matter that come to the CM n ministers are usually related to land disputes, job avenues, transfers and appoinment on compenssionate grounds,few cases of marital discords, pensions and law and order connected issues. The CM resolved few problems on the spot by speaking to the district magistrate Nainital in a freedom fighter case and several other such cases of socio economic relevance, too.

In this people friendly meeting the chief minister personally met over 162 people and did his best to satisfy majority of them by coming to their rescue, say the reliable sources. The venue was the Balbir Road Party office of BJP at Dehradun.



The saffron robed outspoken chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath has given a strong rebuttal to his own party lawmaker Sangeet Som on his highly controversial statement on Taj Mahal and raking up of the 400 old history, turning it upside down saying that it hardly matters who made this historic monument and why but the hard fact can’ t be ruled out that Taj is a historical monument that represents our historical cultural heritage and is built out of the sweat and blood of thousands of Indians without whom it wouldn’t have been possible.

Without given any weitage to Sangeet Som’s controversial stand on Taj Mahal terming it the construction by a king who’s son tortured him in jail and by Moghuls who exploited the Hindus, Yogi Adityanath emphatically said that the whole country knows that it’s the seventh wonder of the world and visited by millions of tourists every year including the foreign heads of the state and international tourists thus promoting tourism and earning for the state and the country. Giving damn to Som’s provocative statement, Yogi Adityanath revealed that he is visiting Agra on 26th of October, 2017 to flagoff a whopping scheme of 370 crores for the complete facelift of Agra and the vicinity adjacent Tajmahal for the convenience, comfort of the local populace and in order to make this historic state neat and clean under the flagship programme of prime minister Narendra Modi called SWACH BHARAT ABHIYAAN.

The UP CM was speaking to the reporter of a news channel. While Yogi Adityanath had been considered as the Hindu trump card of BJP for the forthcoming 2019 elections by political analysts and his rivals but the chief minister catagorically says that he is the CM of all communities whether they are from majority or minority. He pledges to pay equal attention to everyone of them without any discrimination. He says Hinduism is a way of life and India’s deep rooted socio cultural heritage.

It never promotes discrimination but believes in the principle of respect for all religions, SARV DHARM SAMBHAAV. On being questioned on the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya n preparation of massive celebration of Deepawali in Ayodhya to derive political advantage, Yogi Adityanath said that the matter being under the purview of Supreme Court is subjudiced and has nothing to say except that the court’s decision would be acceptable to all. It may be recalled that the controversial lawmaker Sangeet Som has in a public meeting raised a controversy about Taj Mahal accusing the Mughal dynasty of perpetrating violence against Hindus and terming the 7th Wonder of the World as the symbol of slavery. Yogi while giving a strong rebuff to his own lawmaker termed it as India’s significant cultural heritage and global pride.
