Extremely frustrated and completely sidelined globally Pakistan, after twelve Indian Mirage 2000 jet fighters aggressed its territory at Balakot, Chakoti n Muzaffrabad in Pakistan occupied Kashmir n killed 200 to 300 hard core JEM terrorists n felling down its F 16 in Lama Valley, is now planting incorrect n wrong pictures to misguide its populace n keep its morale high. Pakistan television channels are showing the old picture of an IAF aircraft crashed in India in 2016 claiming that its Air Force has brought it down and also captured two of the Indian pilot who air dropped in its territory. The name of the pilot is Abhinandan. It’s fearful Air force chief has also issued a statement saying that Pakistan is not interested in further escalation or war with India nor its PM Imran Khan n would never like to do so. We don’t want to celebrate over war. Our prime minister wants peace. Let’s sit and talk with cool head. We don’t want war. War is no solution to any problem said Pak Air Force chief. Meanwhile, Pakistan TV channels are consistently screening the old picture of the damaged india aircraft to misguide the people in their country to build up their morale by falsely claiming it as the India fighter aircraft gunned down by Pakistan. However, Indian Airforce’s SU fighters n anti aircraft guns have destroyed the Pakistan’s F 16. However, Pakistan’s has denied this Indian claim saying that it has not used F 16 aircrafts till date. Indian has termed Pak’s claims as completely baseless n figment of imagination saying that it’s no pilot has been captured by Pak nor its any aircraft destroyed as it has accounted for everything. Pak is a traditional lier who always believes in misguiding people says India. As per the latest reports the Amritsar Airport has been vacated completely and all the flights have been cancelled. High alert has been declared in all the airports situated in the border states.However, later information suggests that all the airports n their flights have now been resumed keeping in view the inconvenience The Pathankot Jammu Highway n the Airports of the border states n the the villages have been handed over to the army n kept on high alert subsequently. The Indian Army, IAF n Navy are on the full alert n on high morale. The Indian TV channels have also been requested to avoid showing the Army or defence preparedness n movements as a safety valve.

    If Pakistan does not want war then why did they send F16 Fighter plane on Indian soil ? Now they realise that they have no money for aviation fuel for their jets so playing peace politics ! They dont have any intentions to stop terrorism at all else they would have done it long time back. They think they can get Kashmir through sponsering terrorist activities ? Pakistan cannot even manage the land they have…..
    I feel really sorry for our fighter pilot who has been captured by Pak. I hope God protects him whereever he is

Garhwali to be taught in primary schools of Pauri Garhwal from today

Published

Read Time: 4 minutes

The regional Garhwali dialect will now be the significant part of the curriculum in classes first to fifth in Garhwal Uttarakhand with the first-ever initiative taken by the district magistrate of Pauri Garhwal Mr. Dheeraj Singh Garbyal in a function while lightening the lamp of an inauguration function today.

From now onwards students of all the 79 primary schools, to start with, will be taught Garhwali as a mandatory subject as other 8th scheduled languages are taught in various states of the country dominated by majority of their dialect speaking people.

While Garhwali, Kumaoni and Jaunsaar Bhavar dialects of Uttarakhand have not been included in the eighth schedule of the constitution but every state has the right to propagate its dialects n languages to promote and conserve its own  linguistic and cultural heritage.
This healthy  initiative taken by the chief minister of Uttarakhand,  having now commenced from the 79 primary schools of his home district Pauri Garhwal is being lauded by one and all in Uttarakhand.
Similarly, slowly but gradually the same initiative may be taken up in the Kumaon region of the state in the near future as well reveal reliable sources.
The issue of regional language / dialect propagation is an emotional one that binds people and society more cohesively within the parameters of their respective cultural heritage and is a vote catcher initiative too, hence urgently implemented by the present poltical dispensation of the state.
There have been long term attempts by Uttarakhandies living in Delhi and other metropolises of the country to impress upon the successive  state and central governments of Congress and BJP to include Garhwali, Kumaoni and Jaunsaar Bhaver dialects  in the eighth schedule of the constitution through collective protests, media publicity and holding of seminars but no government has till date paid any heed to this call despite the fact that Uttarakhand has a population of about 5 crores at the pan Indian level which includes the 1.25 crore populace of Uttarakhand state too.
The enlightened people and intellectual social organizations of the state in the metropolises and Uttarakhand have been stressing hard to get this protracted demand implemented but of no avail.
The Delhi government of Aam Admi Party has promised in principle and even declared of constituting the Kumaoni and Garhwali academies but the proposal still seems to be on papers despite the very fact that Delhi has a sizeable Uttarakhandi population of approximately 35 lakh people.
However, a prestigious magazine called Dhad edited and published from Dehradun has been propagating the idea of promoting Garhwali language by regularly bringing out this publication in Garhwali dialect thus emphasizing that more and more people of Garhwal, Kumaon and Jaunsaar, Uttarakhand learn the regional  dialects and conserve its cultural and linguistic heritage.
In Delhi too certain social organizations have been holding regular classes to train the children of a new generation living in cities to become well versed in Garhwali and Kumaoni dialects which is slowly and steadily on the decline.
Introducing the local Garhwali dialect in 79 primary schools of Pauri Garhwal Uttarakhand from first to the fifth standards is therefore immensely instrumental to inculcate a feeling of nostalgia and attachment to their local dialect, culture and traditions thus contributing healthily in reverse migration as well as putting a break to influx towards cities.
About five thousand students would be initially taught this dialect which may further include in the curriculum of other districts of the state too.
It may be recalled that the iconic singer of Uttarakhand and prestigious recipient of coveted Sangeet Natak Academy Award Narendra Singh Negi’s contribution in propagating Garhwali language through his powerful and meaningful lyrics and songs have been immeasurable and unparalleled.

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

Published

Read Time: 5 minutes

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.
Rahul Tweeted: The arbitrary arrest of Priyanka Gandhi in Sonbhadra is disturbing. This arbitrary application of power to prevent her from meeting the 10 families of Adivasi farmers brutally gunned down for refusing to vacate their own lands reveals the BJP government’s increasing insecurity in UP.
At the same time hopefully, Congress wants to support the bereaved families sincerely and this is not a publicity stunt by them where they want to leverage this unfortunate incident to their advantage. As after the Photo Op and Dharna drama is over Mrs Vadra has gone back to her daily life.

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.

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.

Ownership rights to residents of unauthorised colonies in Delhi says Kejriwal

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

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?
