Sandeep Thapa was today martyred at the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

He was a young and valiant soldier, a Lance Naik of Indian Army. He belonged to Sahaspur, Dehradun.

This was in the cross border exchange of fire after the breach of ceasefire by Pakistan. He was martyred in the Naushera sector of Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir. This has happened after the scrapping up of the articles 370 and 35 A in Jammu and Kashmir.

After Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh were granted a separate union territory status, neighboring Pakistan and its government led by Imran Khan and Pak Army are in immense frustration. Pakistan has accumulated forces at the Indo Pak border and has increased arbitrary firings on the Indian side. This is being bravely countered and repelled by Indian Army at the LOC. In fact, the law and order situation in strife-torn Kashmir has considerably improved after the positioning of more than 30 thousand Indian Army and CRPF troopers at the LOC and various strife-torn locations in the Kashmir valley.

The incidents of terrorist attacks on domestic as well as on the cross border infiltration fronts have also incredibly improved. The strictness on the part of the union government and the state administration now under governor’s rule commanding the army and the paramilitary forces and jawans to deal with terrorism from this side of the border or any misadventure from Pakistan has yielded good results. The situation in strife-torn Kashmir is gradually returning to normalcy as curfew in several parts of Kashmir has been withdrawn. Therefore with no option left and completely frustrated Pakistan is engaged in the ceasefire violation. There have been about 1900 ceasefire violations till now.

Lance Naik Sandeep Thapa

The India forces and jawans are countering the Paki onslaughts with full might. A month ago 5 BAT commandoes of Pakistan who tried to cross the LOC were killed by the Indian Army and their bodies were handed over to Pakistan. Meanwhile, the chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat while expressing his immense grief over the martyrdom of the young Lance Naik of Indian Army today assured of all possible governmental support and financial assistance to the bereaved family. Uttarakhand chief minister tweeted: Uttarakhand’s saput (valiant son of Uttarakhand) Sandeep Thapa has sacrificed himself in the cross border firing by Pakistan at the Indo-Pak border. I, again and again, bow down in reverence to this great martyr Lance Naik Thapa. While praying for the condolence to the bereaved family we assure of always standing in support of the Martyred family.

A massive fire broke out on the first floor of the teaching block of All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

This happened today near and on the upper floor of the Casualty department. The smoke of the spreading fire had engulfed the adjoining buildings as well.

This included the Cardiovascular Thoracic department building. This is where the former Finance minister Arun Jaitley is admitted in the ICU of the CARDIAC department. There is nothing much to worry as this building is quite at a distance from the Teaching block which caught fire.

This building is just adjacent to the Casualty Ward where hundreds of patients arrive on a daily basis 24 x 7. About twenty-two to twenty-five fire tenders were desperately engaged in controlling the fire and preventing it to spread further. The hospital authorities have closed the laboratory on the first floor of the building. The patients too have been safely evacuated.

There is no report of any serious casualty so far. The reason for the fire is being speculated as a short circuit. However, the actual reason for the eruption of fire would be ascertained after the fire is fully controlled. The was panic all around inside and outside AIIMS as well, as hundreds of thousands of patients from Delhi and other states visit here regularly. The building houses nephrology, gynecology, endocrinology, cardiology, skin, cancer and neurology departments where people from different parts of the country arrive for treatment and critical surgeries.

The adjacent building of PRIVATE wards and the cardiology department has several VIP patients including the former finance minister Arun Jaitley who is in critical condition and on a ventilator at the cardiac clinic.

The condition of the former union finance minister in NDA’s 1st government Arun Jaitley is reported to be critical.

He is at the Intensive care unit of Cardiac department of All India Institute of Medical Sciences. He was admitted on 9th of August after he complained of breathlessness and increasing heart palpitation.

The president of India Ram Nath Kovind visited AIIMS yesterday on hearing about the former minister’s critical health condition. The union home minister Amit Shah also visited AIIMS yesterday for the second time to know about his health condition. The union health minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan and state health minister Mr. Choubey were also present during the president’s visit at AIIMS.
Former finance minister Arun Jaitley also known as prime minister Modi’s troubleshooter, has not been keeping good health for a year or so especially after his kidney transplant and bariatric surgery to lose excessive weight. He is also a diabetic patient. No medical bulletin has been issued so far, except the one issued on the 10th of August claimed Jaitleys condition as stable due to his normal heart functioning. He is being examined and under regular monitoring of the multidisciplinary doctors related to heart, kidney and diabetics diseases.
It may be recalled that Arun Jaitley who was union minister for finance for a full five-year term in NDA 1 government has not contested the election this time due to his deteriorating health condition. He had also requested prime minister Modi not to include him in the new cabinet in NDA part 2 government. This was while thanking him for giving him the opportunity to serve the nation as finance minister. Prime minister Narendra Modi has tremendous faith in Jaitley’s ability and leadership. It was because of this that he was brought in from Rajya Sabha after losing from Amritsar seat against Capt Amrinder Singh.
He was still inducted as finance minister in NDA 1 government for full five years. Despite his bad health, he had worked in elections by addressing the media repeatedly and countering various allegations of Congress party strongly and with gumption. It was because of Jaitley’s bad health that the interim budget of the country was presented by the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal prior to the general elections of 2019. He was considered as a troubleshooter of the BJP party and the government. He became inactive after April and since then is bedridden now on a ventilator at Cardiac ward of AIIIMS Cardiothoracic department.

PM Modi and his tweet

Read Time: 2 minutes

It may be recalled that just a few days ago a Max carrying 20 to 22 school going children driven by an untrained driver had fallen in a gorge killing 10 children and critically injuring 10 others.

There had been quite a sensation over this news throughout the state with transport minister Yashpal Arya suspending the RTO and few other subordinate officers for lapses in not checking the overloading of vehicles leading to fatal accidents. The state chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat had arrived after six days at Pratap Nagar where he had faced protests from the children’s traumatic parents.

The people were demanding Rs. ten lakh for each dead child and 5 lakh each for those critically injured. The Chief Minister had to return after the protests. The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat had confronted massive protests at Pratap Nagar Helipad where he had arrived to hand over the cheques of one lakh rupees to each of the deceased child’s family.
Thereafter, in about a day’s time, it was generous of the prime minister’s office (PMO) in New Delhi to further announce rupees two lakh financial assistance and Rs 50 thousand for each of the injured. It seems that the PM must have sensed the compulsions and financial constraints of Rawat and therefore must have made this announcement. Now the total financial compensation comes to Rs. thirty lakh for the ten deceased school-going children of St Angel’s School in Tehri Garhwal. The financial compensation amounts to Rs. five lakhs in all, for the ten injured.
The prime minister’s office had announced this financial compensation through a tweet. The Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Rawat responded by expressing his gratefulness to PM Modi through a tweet on his twitter handle. However, what makes the residents of Pratap Nagar and Madan Negi angry is the fact that the chief minister had announced Rs. 2 lakh each for the dead and Rs 50000 for the injured as compensation for the victims of Dhumakot bus accident only a few months back which falls under the jurisdiction of Pauri Garhwal district.  However, in this case of Tehri Garhwal children’s death, he announced just Rs. 1 lakh – half of the amount per death than what he paid for the Dhumakot bus accidental deaths.

Murder in Kotdwar speaks of the deteriorating law and order situation

The law and order situation is deteriorating day by day in Uttarakhand with incidents of brutal murders, rapes, and a crime against women on the rise. The state police as known as Mitr police undoubtedly try its best to control the rising crime but the situation seems to be going out of hand.

When Uttarakhand was part of undivided Uttar Pradesh it was really difficult to control crime in this hilly region as the liquor mafia allegedly had its say. Then the entire police and administrative set up was controlled from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh and things were difficult to control but after the formation of the state in the year 2000 it was felt that the crime rate would now come down drastically and the people will heave a sigh of relief.

Unfortunately today Uttarakhand has allegedly become a safe haven for dreaded criminals of other states who seek peaceful clandestine hiding shelter. The state completely assures safety and security. This is undoubtedly a disturbing trend. Just a few days ago a five-year-old girl was obnoxiously raped and brutally murdered by a rapist mutilating her body badly into pieces.

Last year a 19-year-old girl was stalked and thereafter immolated in broad daylight in Pauri Garhwal followed by a number of incidents of rapes, women assaults, murders, and gangsterism. Just today a young man named Shekhar Dhaundiyal who had come to Kotdwara, under Pauri Garhwal district at the office of Shiva Cable from Dehradun was shot dead by three miscreants in broad daylight while he was busy telephoning someone from a private telephone booth.

While Shekhar Dhaundiyal was busy conversing on the telephone outside the Shiva Cable office three men came walking and killed him with a number of gunshots from point-blank range. On hearing the sound of repeated gunshots the staff and employees and the people from nearby came to his rescue but by then the killers had walked away.

Grievously injured and profusely bleeding Dhaundiyal was immediately ferried to the government hospital in Kotdwara but was declared brought dead after succumbing to the bullet injuries. Kotdwar is quite a busy area and absence of the police patrolling and policemen on duty in this busy market area allows the miscreants to conveniently commit this gruesome broad daylight murder. There was commotion all around.

This raises certain questions and also questions the credibility of the Uttarakhand police. People especially the women are worried about their own security.

Heavy rubbles fell on a house killing three persons which included a mother and a daughter.

According to the information flowing in from Disaster Management Control Room senior journalist, Harish Maikhuri informed that in Baaj Bagad the house of one Abbal Singh was completely submerged in a landslide.

Heavy rains during monsoons create havoc in Garhwal and Kumaon divisions of Uttarakhand and cause heavy losses to life and property. The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat has expressed concern over these cloud burst incidents and has also condoled the deaths in this natural calamity. He has tweeted: I am deeply pained to learn about the loss of lives in cloud burst incidents in Chamoli’s ghat area.

CM in Yehri Garhwal to present the cheques of financial compesation to the families of the 10 deceased children

The present political dispensation in Uttarakhand and it’s chief minister value the life of a school going child, who dies in an accident a meager 1 lakh rupee.

A government that earns annual revenue of 2300 crores through the massive sale of liquor acts stingily in financially compensating children after their fatal accidental deaths. A meager Rs. one lakh each not to mention about the meager compensation paid to the grievously injured children.

This is about the recent painful deaths of 10 school going children and injuries to several others when a Max driven by an untrained driver fell into a gorge on Pratap Nagar Madan Negi road. All the children were students of primary classes of a local private school St. Angels at Madan Negi in Tehri Garhwal. This accident occurred with about 10 death tolls and grievous injury to an equal number of children.

They were later airlifted to Rishikesh hospital for treatment.  The fatal accident occurred on the 6th of August. This matter has been immensely hyped in the media. According to sources, there has been an increasing outrage in the people of Tehri Garhwal and the entire state. There have been deplorable statements of the opposition leaders and social organizations regarding the handling of this matter. Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat had visited the village of the dead children in Madan Negi Tehri Garhwal to express his grief and condolence to the bereaved families.

He also handed them over a cheque of Rs. One lakh each to the bereaved families. The highly angered parents of the deceased children raised anti chief minister and anti-govt slogans and asked him to go back. They were furious over the delay of six days in responding to their call for help and that too giving them a meager amount of a Lakh each for the deceased children. The parents have decided to return the cheques and have asked for not less than Rs. ten lakh financial compensation each of the deceased child and Rs. 5 lakh for the grievously injured. The chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat had to leave the village in a huff to meet the families of the victims of cloud bursts in Dhaarti village.

It may be recalled that about 10 school going children had died on 6th August when a Max carrying them fall in a gorge due to an untrained driver losing control of the vehicle. There were in all 22 children in a single max against the traffic rules. These fatal accidents are on the rise in Uttarakhand but the transport department still has no concrete plan of preventing these accidents. Suspensions of transport officials is not a concrete solution as they return to their duties after a few days when the hullaballoo around the tragedy subsides. Some credible policy on traffic rules in the mountainous region should be introduced with immediate effect to decrease the spate of fatal accidents which are on the rise.

However, despite his deteriorating health condition he continued to serve the party even during the national elections defending the party on important issues and countering Congress party and opposition’s onslaught on BJP and prime minister Narendra Modi very strongly and with vigour and vitality.

However, after the saffron parties historic victory at the husting, he wrote a letter to prime minister Narendra Modi requesting him not to include in the UPA 2 cabinet citing health reasons just as his another cabinet colleague late Sushma Swaraj did requesting the PM not to give her party ticket due to deteriorating health reasons.

Unfortunately she is no more with us. News reports say that Jaitley is currently being monitored by a team of endocrinologists, nephrologists, and cardiologists while in ICU. Just two days before he had tweeted expressing his extreme grief over the sad demise of late Sushma Swaraj and hailing her as one of the outstanding politicians’ in the present era.

He added that she leaves behind a void which is difficult to fill. However, he could not physically present himself at Sushma Swaraj’s funeral at Lodhi Road crematorium due to bad health.

Three days before he termed the Congress party as a headless chicken which is further consolidating alienation from the people of India.

He tweeted: New India has changed but only the Congress does not realise this. The Congress leadership is determined to succeed in its race to the bottom he added.
