On Tuesday, Additional Director General of West Bengal Police (law and order) Anuj Sharma replaced Rajeev Kumar and has been appointed as the Kolkata Police Commissioner. Sharma, who is a 1991 batch IPS officer, took charge as the Kolkata police chief on Tuesday after orders were issued by the state secretariat Nabanna.

On the other hand, outgoing city police chief Rajeev Kumar, who has been in news for quite sometime now because of a controversy over the CBI questioning him in chit fund scam case, has been posted as ADG (Additional Director General of Police) and IGP (Inspector General of Police) of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

The move comes following an Election Commission directive.

Rajeev Kumar was appointed as the Kolkata police commissioner in May 2016 and will complete his three-year tenure soon.

He was due for transfer ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

However, after the BJP and the Congress accused Kumar of tapping the phones of their leaders, the Election Commission told the state government to replace him during the Assembly elections. He was later reinstated.

If sources are to be believed, the state BJP has been putting pressure on its central leadership to replace a section of IPS officers seen as close to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Priyanka Vadra’s arrest reminiscences the Belchi visit of her grand mother

The arbitrary arrest of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi heading for Sonbhadra yesterday i.e. 19th July to meet the bereaved families and the grievously injured victims of massacre of 12 innocents of Gond community by a landlord village head Yagya Dutt and his goons who came on 32 tractors killing and injuring several poor villagers has created an immense anger, annoyance, disenchantment and furore amongst the Congress leaders and rank and file at the pan India level with hundreds of workers thronging the arrest site in Chunar to express their solidarity with their leader thus helping in reviving and regenerating a new lease of life in a non functional Congress party after the desperate resignation of her brother Rahul Gandhi as Congress chief taking the responsibility of the election debacle on his head.

You may recall that Congress general secretary  Priyanka Gandhi was arrested on 19th July when she was peacefully protesting after having been restricted by the UP administration to meet the injured and the bereaved families of the diabolical Sonbhadra massacre.
Priyanka’s visit reminds me of the similar visit of her grandmother, former prime minister Indira Gandhi to Belchi, Bihar during the Janata Party rule after 1977 when several Dalits were massacred by the higher caste landlords creating quite a ripple and sensation in the national and international media and political circles as well.
Late Mrs Gandhi was then out of power, having lost her own Lok Sabha seat from Rai Bareilly to late Raj Narain, the then health minister in the govt of Janata Party conglomeration.
She had visited Belchi climbing on an elephant to know the welfare and well being of the bereaved family.
Her Belchi visit was so popularised in the media that it, later on, resulted in her coming back to power at the centre defeating badly the conglomeration of the 22 national political outfits called the Janata Party that ruled for merely 22 months and tore apart like the pack of cards.
Priyanka Gandhi’s visit to Sonbhadra seems to repeat the episode of her grand mother’s Belchi, Bihar visit during Janata Party era earning the sympathy of the Dalits and have nots all over the country.
In a democratic country can’t a peace-loving leader of a national party visit the victims of the massacre to know about their well being asked Priyanka Gandhi before her being arrested.
This raises a question that the UP CM Yogi Aditya Nath and the BJP leadership is highly apprehensive of the increasing political popularity and clout of Priyanka Gandhi who seems to be the next leader in the making in Congress Party after Rahul Gandhi’s resignation.
Voices within and outside the Congress have already started emerging in favour of Sonia Gandhi to make her the Congress president.
The way Priyanka sat on the Dharna in protest yesterday while heading for Sonbhadra after having been forbidden to do so on the bare ground with her supporters and arrested later on, reminiscences of her grandmother again when she during the Janata Party rule in 1978 also sat on the road after having been arrested and paraded on foot while late Choudhary Charan Singh was the home minister in Morarji Desai’s tenure as PM while handcuffed.
Mrs Gandhi had thereafter returned to power with a thumping majority, gaining the sympathy of the people nationwide.
Political analysts say that by repeating the same blunder through vindictive politics, the present political dispensation in Uttar Pradesh and at the centre is not only opening the doors for the revival and rejuvenation  of Congress Party at the national level but also giving leverage/ impetus to the anti-opposition forces under Congress party to unite thus able to forge a formidable challenge to it in the future.
The Congressmen and the people see in Priyanka Gandhi a shadow of late Indira Gandhi, a formidable leader of international eminence credited for dividing Pakistan in 1971, creating Bangladesh whom even the former prime minister, the then opposition leader late Atal Bihari Vajpayee publicly accorded the title of Durga Maa.
Meanwhile, Congressmen from all over the country are converging at Varanasi and Sonbhadra to express solidarity with there arrested leader who was holed up in the guest house whole night under arrest.

Increase in the circle rates will also increase the land cost in Uttarakhand

Rishikesh in Uttarakhand

Read Time: 4 minutes

The government of Uttarakhand running into a deficit of several thousand crores, probably more than Rs 45000 crores, is devising ways and means to bridge this deficit and also to use this revenue generated in various developmental projects within the state.

Apart from the massive liquor sale that gives the government of Uttarakhand an annual income of approximately Rs. 2300 crores, it’s also trying to generate revenue from other sources.
The government which pays a heavy interest on external borrowings has no alternative but to generate sufficient revenue from different other sources within the state, in order to not only pay the interest but also to further the development programs and also to run the state’s economy efficiently.
To generate this additional revenue the Uttarakhand BJP government led by Trivendra Singh Rawat is likely to enhance the circle rates of lands in the various cities and towns and its surroundings. This is to generate significant revenue in the process of buying and selling through earnings on stamp paper duties and from the registry of properties.
After Uttarakhand came into existence 19 years ago. Initially people hardly had any interest to invest in land or housing but after its formation the land sale has increased manifold in Uttarakhand particularly in the plain areas such as the capital Dehradun and its outskirts, Rishikesh, near Mussourie, Haridwar, Haldwani, in the outskirts of Mussourie, Dhanaltie, Udham Singh Nagar, Nainital’s outskirts and even at secluded hill areas. These investments are mostly with an aim to open resorts, hotels as well as for residential houses business establishments by businessmen and the middle class. There are also some large scale investments by the rich.
The real estate agents, land brokers, and colonizers are even selling agricultural lands on a square meter basis after purchasing large tracts of lands by cutting colonies, thus minting huge profits.
In almost all the townships and cities and their outskirts, people are thronging in large numbers to purchase properties and land.
The main reason behind this phenomena is shifting of major offices to Dehradun and other cities and the opening of new offices.
The bureaucracy, the business community as well as the employees of these establishments have therefore thronged the plains of Uttarakhand in multitude and have constructed houses for which they had earlier purchased lands.
An additional reason for investment in these hilly areas is it being environment-friendly and having pleasant people.  Therefore not only people from Uttarakhand but also people from Delhi and other metropolises including NRIs have invested money in Uttarakhand by purchasing lands. The idea is to benefit from an increase in the land rates after a few years and if need be to otherwise settle there after retirement.
The property business in Uttarakhand has prospered by leaps and bounds as the rich and affluent have purchased large tracts of land at throwaway prices a few years ago for establishing hotels, resorts, private hospitals, and other businesses which are now fetching them huge profits.
At several places in Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Dehradun huge multi-stories and hi-tech buildings have sprung up.
After this increase in the circle rates the cost of land at Dehradun, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Mussourie, Haldwani, Pithoragarh, Nainital’s outskirts, etc will further increase inflating the land cost. It would not be that easy for the new buyers to purchase whereas those who have already purchased these lands would reap handsome profits in the near future if they sell them.
There had been an investment of several hundred crores in Uttarakhand by land sharks and mafias. They’re bound to benefit from this move of the government if the circle rates move up by 25 to 35%.
While the state government will benefit from this move, the poor and the middle-class would be overburdened if they want to buy land for constructing houses says Congress leader of Uttarakhand Kishore Upadhyay. It’s an anti-poor and anti-middle-class decision says, Upadhyay.
On the other hand, Uttarakhand’s Agriculture minister Subodh Uniyal appreciates the government’s decision and has stated that an increase in the circle rates will result in the cost of the land to increase. The land and house owners and especially the farmers will benefit from high rates for their land.
Not only this but they will also be able to get higher amounts of loans from banks after an increase in the land rates adds Uniyal.

Truck driver who had caused the death of 2 youths of Pauri Garhwal nabbed

The recent deaths of two youths namely Ramesh Singh 23 years old and Vir Singh aged 22 years old at Sarhaul border, Gurugram hailing from Kathur and Salon respectively from district Pauri Garhwal was not a murder but accidental deaths.

One of their friend from Ghulek village who was grievously injured is still in hospital under critical conditions and recovering gradually.

Today more than 150 people of Uttarakhand from Delhi and different parts of Haryana gathered at Udyog Vihar police station in Dundahera, Haryana to register their peaceful protest demanding immediate arrest and stringent action against the culprit. The culprit who had caused this accident three days ago at the wee hours of the morning because of his rash driving – had fled the scene instead of helping the grievously injured youths who could have been saved had he ferried them to the hospital in time.

The third injured youth was lucky and had survived was rushed to the hospital by the locals available at the accident spot.

According to a video released in a WhatsApp group by some social activists these deaths were the result of a dangerous accident that occurred last Monday early in the morning while these three youths namely Ramesh Singh (23), Verr Singh ( 22) and Narendra Singh were returning back from their respective duties from Empire club in MGF Mall Gurugram.

It has not yet been known as to why these youths had gone to Sarhaul border. While they were walking a vehicle at extremely high speed ran over them grievously injuring all the three. While two youths namely Ramesh Singh and Veer Singh died on the spot succumbing to grievous injuries, the third one Narendra Singh was admitted to hospital where he is still under treatment.

There was shock wave all around amongst their families and amongst the people of Uttarakhand community. Photos of these dead and injured youths with news about their alleged murder were loaded on various social media platforms and went viral. The cause of these deaths could not be ascertained earlier. However, after a day the Udyog Vihar police had revealed that they were accidental deaths but nobody was willing to accept the police version.

They were angry that even if it was an accident the driver of the vehicle who killed these youths so brutally under his vehicle should not have fled the scene and instead should have informed the police or at least helped the injured to the hospital. But by fleeing from the scene of the accident after two deaths he behaved like a killer. However, due to excessive media hype and the Haryana CM’s directives after Uttarakhand CM Rawat’s request to him, the erroneous and rash truck driver involved in this fateful accident has been caught, as per sources.

The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat had spoken to Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khatter requesting him to direct the police to bring the culprit to justice at the earliest.

The Udyog Vihar police of Haryana has shown immense vigilance and dedication in nabbing the culprit within a couple of days. However, this has happened only after media hype and peoples’ pressure. Further Haryana CM’s intervention after the request of his Uttarakhand counterpart helped in the quick resolution of this case.

This is the tempo driver nabbed by the Palam Vihar, Gurugram police namely Neeraj Bhatt of Nepal.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival

Read Time: 2 minutes
The chief minister of the national capital territory of Delhi and AAP’s national convenor Arvind Kejriwal has made a positive announcement for more than fifty lakh populace of the unauthorized colonies of the capital regarding granting of ownership rights to the house owners through registries.
Till now the sale purchase of lands and houses in the unauthorised colonies was done  through power of attorney which was not fully legally tenable.
This announcement would benefit more than half a crore Delhites living in unauthorised colonies for years under shabby conditions without any adequate civic facilities.
The Delhi government will charge a minimum development charge of merely Rs. 6000 from each house owner before registering their power of attorney.
The Delhi chief minister said that the Delhi cabinet has passed a proposal to this effect and has sent it to the central government for clearance. Kejriwal is of the opinion that it will be duly passed by the central government after posing a few questions which will be clarified in a due course.
He thanked the union government for putting its seal of approval on his government’s recommendation.
In a tweet in Hindi Arvind Kejrival stated:
‘Kachi colonion mein rehne vaale logon ko badhayi. Jald aapko milega apne makaanon ka maalikana haq. Hamari sarkaar ke November 2015 ke prastaav ko kendra sarkaar manjuri dene ko tayyar. Jald registry karne ki tayyariyaan shuru. Dilli ke logon ki ore se kendra sarkaar ka bahut bahut shukriya.’
Translated in English: ‘Congratulations to the people living in unauthorized colonies. Soon you will get the ownership rights for the house you own. The central government is ready to give clearence to our government’s proposal of November 2015. Now, soon there can be a registry of your houses. On behalf of the Delhi people, I thank the central government very much.’
It may be recalled that there is not much time left for the Delhi elections due in February 2020. The Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is, therefore, throwing googlies after googly.
He had recently announced that in Delhi Metro, the women will be provided free travel facility. He had earlier also announced that a 1000 or more electric buses will be introduced in Delhi, which is greater than the commitment of all Indian cities put together. Now this googly from Kejriwal of granting of ownership rights to lakhs of residents of 1727 unauthorized colonies of Delhi.

It was finally a permanent goodbye to the former Congress turned BJP lawmaker from Khanpur, Haridwar, Uttarakhand after so much of hullaballoo in the political and media circles over his unethical and derogatory remarks against Uttarakhand. He was seen openly dancing and consuming liquor holding three pistols and a carbine in a video that went viral.

Yes, we are talking here about the landlord of Landaur and muscle man of Khanpur, MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion who’d been expelled from Bhartiya Janata Party for six years.
In an expulsion letter served to him today with the date of 17th July, the BJP’s national general secretary Arun Singh has said that taking into account the indiscipline of the MLA from Khanpur, Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion, the BJP is suspending him from the primary membership of the party for six years.
The decision is being executed forthwith said the letter. The copies of this expulsion letter have been sent to the national president of BJP, Uttarakhand state BJP president, president national executive and to the national general secretary, in charge of Uttarakhand BJP.
Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion had joined the BJP from Congress in 2017 along with 11 MLAs after having differences with Harish Rawat, the then chief minister of Uttarakhand. He had been in usual controversies sometimes even for illegal firing from his pistol publicly. He is also responsible for uploading videos on social media while enjoying the dances on Bollywood numbers and for brandishing pistols as well including using unethical and unparliamentary comments against Uttarakhand and its people, thus bringing immense disrepute to the saffron party.
The Congress and even the BJP leaders and lawmakers from Uttarakhand were badly annoyed with his misconduct and unethical behavior and had demanded his expulsion from the party after the controversial video was repeatedly telecast in the national and regional media.
There were lots of foes of Champion even in BJP Uttarakhand as more or less every lawmaker, even ministers were allegedly scared of him.

Apex court directs Speaker not to compel rebel MLAs to participate in floor test

Read Time: 2 minutes

The protracted political crisis in Karnataka has taken an interesting and curious turn after the supreme court of India has in its judgement today made it amply clear by giving a free hand to rebel Congress, JD( S) and independent lawmakers of the southern state to act according to their wishes. The apex court has stated that they are not legally bound to participate in the floor test.

The apex court also directed the Karnataka Vidhan Soudha Speaker who has a major and justifiable role to play in this entire crisis, to not compel the dissident lawmakers to participate in the floor test scheduled for Thursday in the Karnataka Vidhan Soudha.

However, the apex court also said that the speaker is free to take a decision on the resignation letters of dissident MLAs submitted to him earlier, thus extending their support to the BJP.

The lawyer appearing for the dissident lawmakers has unambiguously said and pleaded before the apex court judges hearing the vexed matter, that the rebels would not be present in the Vidhan Soudha on Thursday during the floor test giving a clear indication about the current ruling government of Congress JD ( S) combine is in definite danger and likely to fall a day after.

It may be recalled that the Karnataka Vidhan Soudha has a total of 224 lawmakers including the speaker.

112 seats are required to have a simple majority and form the government. Earlier the total strength of the ruling government was 116 and that included 78 Congress MLAs, 37 JD (S) MLAs and one of BSP MLA.

Now since 14 MLAs of Kumaraswamy government have rebelled and resigned, they will not be present on Thursday in the assembly during the floor test.

This will reduce the total MLA strength to 207 and therefore the majority needed to form the government will come down to 104 MLAs.

This unambiguously means that the government of Congress and JD(S) will get the support of 100 odd lawmakers. On the other hand, the opposition BJP has 105 MLAs’ of its own plus the outright support of two independents, which clearly and transparently indicates that the saffron party has a credible chance to form a government.

This predicts the fall of the Kumaraswamy government. What’s your take friends?

The most popular and highly adored legendary folk singer of Uttarakhand Narendra Singh Negi has been selected for the prestigious Sangeet Natak Academy Award for the year 2018. The award will be presented to him by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind in a function at Rashtrapati Bhawan.

This coveted award is being given to him for his unparalleled contribution to the Folk Songs of Uttarakhand category.
Eminent writer and art critic Diwan Singh Bajeli of Uttarakhand who is based out of Delhi has been chosen for this award in the category of Scholar.
Other prominent awardees from the different states of the country to be felicitated with this prestigious honour are Malini Awasthi for folk music from Uttar Pradesh, Ghazi Khan Barna for folk music from RAJASTHAN, Niranjan Raj Guru for folk music from Gujarat, Muhammed  Sadiq  Bhagat from Bandh Pathar, Jammu and Kashmir for Folk Theatre, Kota Sachidananda Shakti for Kathavachan, from Andhra Pradesh, Arjun Singh Dhruve for  folk dance from Madhya Pradesh, Somnath  Battu from Himachal Pradesh for folk music, Anupama Hoskere for string puppetry from Karnataka and Hem Chandra Goswami for mask making, Assam.
In addition to these awards, the Sangeet Natak Academy has also chosen eminent personalities from the fields of classical dance, Tabla vaadan and art and is bestowing the prestigious Sangeet Natak Fellowship Awards to eminent personalities viz.  Sonal Man Singh, Zaakir Hussain, Kota. Kalyanasundaram,  also known as Sangeet  Ratn Puruskaar.
The Sangeet Natak Academy and Fellowship Awards are conferred on 44 different eminent personalities in the field of Arts every year which includes different forms of music, dance, folk songs, theatre and traditional songs and music with the sole purpose of recognizing the regional and national talents and thus to encourage them to conserve our tradition, culture and heritage.
The Sangeet Natak Academy, New Delhi is popularly known as the National Academy for Music, Dance, and Drama in English.
It was established in the year 1952 after independence by the then education ministry inaugurated by the first Indian president Dr. Rajendra Prasad in a special ceremonial function at the Parliament house.

Negi has since last 4 decades sung thousands of popular songs on various subjects. He is a lyricist and a melodious singer having won accolades all around.
His popularity amongst Uttarakhandies is massive, globally. How widely popular Uttarakhand’s eminent singer NARENDRA Singh Negi is can be gauged from the fact that when he was hospitalized for his cardiac surgery at Max hospital Haridwar, the number of followers, searching and praying for his well being superseded the prime minister’s following on Google search.
It must be remembered that Negi’s extremely popular and controversial song with political overtones titled NAUCHAMI NARENA was a super-duper hit. Millions of CDs of this song was sold globally that ultimately led to the fall of the ND Tiwari (Congress government) more than a decade ago. Even prestigious magazine India today had brought out a special story on the historic success of this song.
There had been repeated demands for considering his name for the prestigious Padma Shree award but the earlier state governments of Uttarakhand never exhibited that eagerness and wholeheartedness to honour this living legend of Uttarakhand.

Two young boys primarily hailing from Raath area of Garhwal Uttarakhand, specifically from Kathyud and Kuthkhal villages have been diabolically under mysterious circumstaces  on the 14th of July.  Some say they were brutally murdered while the Gurugram police claim their death through accident. They were serving in Gurugram, Haryana in a Hotel.
This tragic news has created a sensation amongst the people of Uttarakhand community in Delhi and Haryana with the news about these diabolical deaths going viral in social media as well.
These young boys were serving in a private hotel and earning their livelihood for their families living in Kathyudh and Kuthkhal villages in Raath area of Garhwal Uttarakhand.
The exact reason for the abominable murders/ deaths has not been ascertained yet.
However, the SHO Udyog Vihar police station Gurugram says that it’s a case of rash accident at midnight by a tempo driver who fled after hitting these boys.
Sounds strange, shocking and dubious too.  Even if it’s an accident as claimed by the police, its equivalent to murder as no law gives the right to take away innocent lives especially of the guilty driver flees the accident spot instead of helping the injureds.
However, after postmortem, the dead bodies have been kept in the Gurugram mortuary even after two days of the incident.
According to sources, both these boys have been brutally killed at midnight in Sikandarpur area of Gurugram in Haryana on 14th July at midnight which the police claim to be an accident. The CCTV footages are being minutely examined to ascertain the real cause of these brutal deaths.
These boys were returning back home after performing their respective hotel duties in the night.
While on the way both these boys were mercilessly killed either by some goons or through accident while the third one was grievously injured . The exact cause of the death is still a mystry.
The rescued boy hails from the village Ghulek in Pauri Garhwal, reveal sources.
He has been admitted to a Gurugram hospital and doctors are monitoring his condition. Police are waiting for his version that may shed light to the actual cause of the tragedy. Furious inhabitants of Uttarakhand in Delhi and Gurugram are questioning the integrity of the lical police which has still not bern able to find out the actual cause of these grusome young deaths nor have they been able to trace out the culprits.
There are thousands of migrated youth working in the metropolises of the country earning their livelihood for their poor families living in the villages.
Last year one such youth was killed in Haryana and  Bangalore at night after being looted,  while they was coming back to their quarters from his duty.
The member of Parliaments of Uttarakhand in Delhi including the union HTD minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank should use their good offices and help the bereaved families by arranging adequate financial compensation for the decased’s traumatic parents and pressuring the DG police of Haryana to bring the culprits to justice at the earliest.
Uttarakhand Journalists Forum demands immediate action against the culprits of these gruesome killings and severe punishment to the murdurers.
Meanwhile the Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has expressed his serious concern and dissapointment over this tragic incident and has telephonically spoken to the Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khatter to intervene in this matter personally to ascertain the real cause of deaths of these two youths and instruct the police to bring the culprits to justice at the earliest.

Forest guard falls prey to a maneater in Lansdowne as maneater killings go unabated in Uttarakhand

Maneater of Uttrakhand on a prowl for human lives

The horrific incidents of maneater killings in the various districts of Uttarakhand are on the rise.

There is little that the forest department can do in this regard as the tigers and maneater leopards are in search of human flesh in view of the dearth of animal prey in the jungles of Uttarakhand.
Newsviewsnetwork has consistently highlighted these incidents of carnivorous animals like those of tigers, leopards and cheetah attacks on human beings.
Till now hundreds of children, women and senior citizens have fallen prey to these predators.
In Uttarakhand, the situation is so scary that in some parts of Garhwal and Kumon division people do not venture out of their house after 6 PM for the fear of maneaters.
There have been incidents when these predators have grabbed children by entering their houses and killing them brutally, especially on roadsides and in the houses near the forest areas.
In one such fresh incident, two days ago Sohan Singh  Chouhan son of Virendra Singh Chouhan working in the plain range area of Lansdowne division of Kalagarh Tiger Reserve in Pauri Garhwal Uttarakhand has been brutally killed. His mutilated body was recovered after twelve hours.
He was just 23 years old and was the resident of Sindhikhal, Lansdowne.
According to CNE via information given by the forest officer of Lansdowne Forest division Indresh Upadhyay, the deceased Sohan Singh Gusain was on usual patrolling of the jungle.
While passing through Tatapani area in the dense forest a leopard pounced on him and dragged his body several meters away mutilating it badly leading to his death.
Since the jungle was quite dense it took 12 hours for the forest authorities to trace his badly mutilated dead body.
The body was handed over to the bereaved parents of late Sohan Singh Chouhan. There is an atmosphere of terror all around as this maneater leopard has now become a direct threat to the lives of the nearby residents.
These horrific incidents of maneater killings in the various districts of Uttarakhand are on the rise and something soon needs to be done by the Forest officials to check this menace.
