INTERVIEW WITH AJAY TAMTA, MOS, TEXTILES

Forty four year old union minister of state for textiles Ajay Tamta was a single new comer in Modi’s cabinet representing entire Uttarakhand when about a year and a half ago he was picked (up) by the prime minister Narendra Modi, surprising one and all, especially the three former chief ministers of Uttarakhand, who are now MPs and were very much aspiring to be the union ministers from the hill quota, finally finding their all hopes crushed with a bang. Though new at the centre, this former MLA and minister in Major General Bhuvan Chandra Khanduri’s cabinet twice in UK, dalit leader and popular MP from Almora reserve, Ajay Tamta is doing extremely well active in his constitency, entire Uttarakhand, in the state elections of Gujarat and Himachal, in facebook and twitter praising Modi’s policies, actions, foreign visits and every single official pronouncements. Tamta recently, ( in the month of October) accompanied President Ramnath Kovind in his first overseas 5 day visit of two African nations Djibouti and Ethiopia on the recommendation on prime minister Modi. This speaks of the fact about his being in the good books of the prime minister.

While his senior minister for textiles Smriti Irani remains more entangled and pre occupied in the ministry of I& B its he, Ajay Tamta who concentrates more n more in the ministerial works as well, to fill that void by sharing the larger responsibilities of his Textile ministry. Soft spoken, affable, well read and sharp, Tamta answers questions posed to him with quite ease and confidence. Taking immense interest in the research and innovative works of his ministry in handloom development Ajay Tamta has taken a special initiative to make adequate, constructive and positive use of pine tree needles that are found in abundance in Uttarakhand, for first extracting terpentine oil from them and later on using the waste residue to produce fine quality paper type designer bags for carrying stuffs which is disposable like paper bags and extremely environmental friendly. In Uttarakhand pine needles naturally come down on the land from pine trees and are in myriad quantity.

If unused they not only make the land slippery and barren completely blocking cultivation but also play the combustible role of petrol during jungle fires thus resulting in damaging vast tracts of jungles. Ajay Tamta’s innovative initiative has not only led to rightful use of these otherwise useless needles which will further give employment to local populace but will also help in earning monetory profits out of this venture. Answering a question pertaining to his ministry’s contribution in the development of the himalayan state, Ajay Tamta revealed that a sum of Rupees 5 crores has already been sanctioned by the textile ministry for setting up of a textile factory at Dinapani in Almora, Uttarakhand that will produce fine cloth from the natural fibre. About fifty naali land for the proposed project has already been acquired and about 200 local personels would be given employment in this industrial unit.

The minister said – after assuming the charge as minister I came to know that the clothes prepared from the threads of leelam and raimy are highly expensive, high in demand but the raw material for the same has to be imported from Belgiam. Since then he made up his mind to get the raw material manufactured within the country. He discussed the possibilities with the scientists of Pant Nagar Agricultural University, Vivekanand Agricultural Research Centre, Almora and Research institutes of Pratapgarh etc.

As asked by the scientists we got the seeds of leelan and raimy produced first and then planted their trees (plants). The agricultural scientists were finally succesful in retrieving 5.5 quintal of fibres from these sources. This is a huge break through and the time is not far when this succesful achievement/ experment would be replicated elsewhere in Uttarakhand and all over India. Praising the policies and the leadership of prime minister India, Narendra Modi Ajay Tamta said that time is not far when India will be a global leader as Modi’s efforts and diplomacy on International scenerio has started showing positve results especially in the context of China who had to finally back track on Doklam issue and the world’s mighty super power USA unshakingly standing with India.

He congratulated the Uttarakhand government for initiating various new pro people initiatives and hope that people initiatives of the state would be positively benefitted in the health, education and the employment sector, the basic requirements of the people for which the state of Utarakhand actually came into existence after so much of sacrifices.

The Gujarat election is becoming tumultuous and stormy day by day and despite prime minister Narendra Modi’s impressive public meetings enticing full assurance of support from majority of the electorates on Gujarat pride issue, political analysts say that the 24 year old leader Hardik Patel’s increasing anti BJP and pro Rahul and Congress campaign has to a great extent shaken and politically threatened the state’s BJP leadership.

Though there is not an inkling of doubt that various opinion polls have so far shown BJP winning the Gujarat polls, but as the election date is nearing while Nehru Gandhi scion and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Patidar leader carrying the majority support of over 12% votes of the influensive patidar community Hardik Patel, OBC leader Jignesh and Alpesh Thakor have accelerated their political campaigning and vociferous attacks on the ruling BJP including its top leadership, already facing an anti incumbency factor due to its being in power for the last 19 protracted years the enhanced tirade of the opposition seems to have visibly shaken the state ruling party leadership and it was on 12th November that an alleged morphed CD of Hardik Patel was made available to TV channels by unknown sources to defame his image.

This clearly shows how badly is the state BJP shaken and disturbed. However,  equally visibly upset was the Patidar leader then and  had to become offensive when he accused the state BJP leaders of allegedly planting a morphed sex CD showing somebody like him with a woman to pre strategically denigrate his image. Denying and outrightly rejecting the highly objectionable CD showing him with a woman in an uncompromising act Hardik had accused the BJP of intentionally doctoring it to defame his image, reputation and increasing popularity.

He added that it’s the old tactics and habit of BJP that when they become apprehensive of losing the polls they resort to such cheap and unethical practices to defame their political rivals.The BJP has however, outrightly denied. Similarly, the BJP was in a dock earliar, last month, when prior to this incident, one of Hardik’s associate Narendra Patel has presented a first instalment of wads of currency, Rs ten lakhs, in front of the media given to him by the Gujarat state BJP leaders as a bribe to join the BJP assuring 90 lakhs to be presented later on.

Patel’s exposure has really led to the defamation of the BJP when the state campainging for the election is in a full swing. As the dates of elections are nearing the poll of Gujarat has heated up to the maximum with Rahul Gandhi and his entire team holding good number of public meetings being further strengthened as well, by the anti BJP campaigning of Hardik Patel and OBC leaders’ like Jignesh.

However, the Gujarat election this time too seems to be going in favour of the BJP as political analysts say that come what may the Gujarat pride factor and the freebies delivered and assured by prime minister Narendra Modi and his government to the tune of several thousand crores pertaining to its development and jobs to the weaker sections will definitely bore fruits and help in BJP’s return for another term.

The spate of incessant development in Gujarat during and after Modi’s tenure and his every possible efforts to break into the Patidar vote bank by participating in the Narayanswamy Mutt event which comprises of maximum devotees of the patidar community compounded with giving the Gujaraties a direct flight from London to Ahmedabad and a hi speed bullet train project worth more than Rs.100 crores are some of the revolutionary developmental achievements that are bound to go in BJP’S FAVOUR.

Yes, but the Congress is bound to improve its tally this time due to Rahul’s increasing efforts and anti BJP stance of Hardik, Jignesh and Alpesh Thakur the leaders of Patidar, OBC and the dalit communities. However, whatever, may be the result of this election but one thing is definitely confirmed that despite the Congress facing defeats in several states in the recently held elections, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has always kept his moral high as a strong and dashing leader of the oldest political party of the country.

His increasing mobilisation capacity and single handedly taking on the ruling party tirades in Gujarat and Himachal despite all odds has proved beyond doubt that the Gandhi family scion is a horse of long race who believes in strugglung relentlessly even if he loses every battle. This fighting spirit of Rahul Gandhi has atleast kept the spirit of the rank and file of the party renewed with enthusiasm and potent zeal that will definitely help the party come to power again at the centre, sooner or later.

This is not the first time that prime minister Modi had been in the midst of our brave soldiers diring the deepawali festival.

He celebrated Deepawali with Army Jawans a Siachin glacier, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab Indo Pak border earliar and stayed with them for a pretty long time exchanging plesentaries, sweets and thus boosting their morale.

After having been elected as the prime minister of the country Narendra Modi has declared that he will always celebrate this festival of lights and symbolic of victory of the good over the evil at the nation’ s borders with the Army Jawans and the para troopers who guard our borders under extremely challenging and extraneous circumstances without caring for their lives and being away from their families during popular festivals like holi and Deepawali and lateron kept his promises intact.

He also won their hearts by implemented the long awaited demands of Armymen pertaining to one pension, though in a phased manner. This warm, healthy and the ambivalent gesture of the prime minister has won him tons of accolades amongst the countrymen. In view of the incessant hostility from across the border and continuous ceasefire violations by unrelenting Pakistan and its terrorist outfits including expansionist China’s border interventions, clandestinely eyeing on Indian territories, prime minister Modi’s initiatives of keeping the Indian Army’s moral high holds tremendous national significance which has even kept his arch political rivals tight lipped.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi landed in Israel on Tuesday for a 48-hour visit. Modi’s visit to the Jewish country is the first by an Indian pioneer of politics. Him being a Hindu patriot, traditionalist and adherent to free markets, he has the benefit of extraordinary prominence at home, and according to many think tanks he is bound to be re-elected as the PM in 2019.

As per a rundown given by Minister of State to External Affairs V.K. Singh, in an answer to an inquiry, after first going to Bhutan in June 2014, Modi went to visit the U.S. four times, and Nepal, Russia , Japan, China and Afghanistan  twice each. He has actually made 56 International visits since accepting charge.

Such a forceful attitude by the PM towards visiting to various nations as a method of strategy is a sensational change as compared to all the strategies adopted by  the predecessors except the first Prime Minister of the nation, Jawaharlal Nehru.

Such visits are focused about building the brand India picture and to showcase our countries capabilities on international stages. To prove that Indian business visionaries with world-class ideas and visions possess the capacity to exhibit their ability and find genuine accomplices and resources to recreate their dreams.

The impact of such visits is a get together for mutually beneficial trade partners and political thinkers, for example, the Indo-Japan Trade Forum. The CEOs of various Silicon Valley based companies have also begun to show a lot more interest in our country as of late, most of which is directed towards Modi’s enthusiastic approach to ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ ventures.

The benefits of his International visits are of course boasted by all his supporters, but there is a group largely comprising of the opposition in India that claims that such visits are a waste of tax payer’s hard earned money. According to them the PM should focus more on the internal problems of the country. Modi, who is too busy to pay heed to such talks, will soon be making a trip to Germany, to participate in the G20 Summit in Hamburg.
