Political parties in Jammu and Kashmir have strongly pitched for holding simultaneous polls to Lok Sabha and Assembly in the restive state.

At the all-party meeting called by J&K Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Shailendra Kumar on Friday, almost all the parties favoured holding of Assembly polls with the Lok Sabha elections.

“Almost all the political leaders were unanimous in holding simultaneous polls and expressed their readiness for the same. They suggested several measures to improve the electoral process to ensure smooth and transparent elections in the state,” said an official spokesman after the meeting.

National Conference, which along with PDP had boycotted the recently concluded urban local bodies and panchayat polls on the issue of Article 35 A, pushed for holding the two polls together. “We want both polls should be held simultaneously,” said Imran Nabi Dar, National Conference spokesman.

Shunning the baggage of boycott politics, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) too pitched for holding both polls together in the state. “Let the Election Commission take the call,” said Syed Suhail Bukhari, Media Advisor to PDP president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.

BJP, however, put the ball in the court of Election Commission saying they are already in the poll mode and comfortable in both scenarios — holding polls simultaneously or separately.

“We are open to both. It is the ECI which has to take the call. We will also not have problems if elections are held afterwards,” said Sunil Sethi, chief spokesman of J&K BJP.

Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Shailendra Kumar said his office has already taken necessary steps for holding the elections (simultaneous polls), but the decision lies with the Election Commission, who will take a final call at an appropriate time after taking into consideration all the aspects.

Kumar said a team of Election Commission will visit the state soon to have a review of the situation with political leaders and other stakeholders for holding the elections.

J&K was placed under President’s rule last month and elections as per constitution have to be held within six months. Unlike other states, the J&K has to be placed under the Governor’s rule for six months in case of fall of the government or no party or combination is in a position to form the government.

The attacks of maneater leopards in Garhwal, Uttarakhand are still going unabated with every third day the dreadful incidents of these carnivorous animals’ invasion on human lives appearing in media creating sensation and apprehension amongst the inhabitants of Pauri Garhwal district’s Kalagarh Reserve Forest area.
These predators have become so prone to human flesh that they are now entering human settlements even during day time and making human beings their easy prey. The Paabo block and Lansdown areas are the most affected these days though incidents of maneater attacks have been frequent in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand as well.
Just a week and a half ago in the Sindhikhal forest area near Lansdowne, a maneater leopard had made a forest guard its prey by attacking him in the dense jungle and leaving his mutilated body few meters away from the point of attack. Half of his body was eaten by this dreaded maneater.
In the absence of animal flesh within the forest area, these hungry maneaters are on prowl of human flesh day and night. They have tasted human blood and flesh and have now become so horrifying that they don’t even spare people on running motorbike.
Just yesterday a 35-year man was attacked by a maneater at Daunthiyal Sindhikhal Road in Lansdown area under the jurisdiction of Pauri Garhwal district while he was driving his motorbike quite in speed, wearing a helmet.
According to the onlookers who helped the injured man by ferrying him to a local hospital, this dreaded maneater pounced on this man on Daunthiyal Sindhikhal road and attacked him on his hand by his sharp jaws injuring them badly.
The motorcyclist wearing a helmet was a courageous man who instead of feeling nervous bravely and forcibly kicked the leopard after a brief scuffle making the man-eater terrified who went into the jungle in desperation minutes after the scuffle.
The injured man who fell down unconscious after the scuffle with the man-eater was later on ferried to the nearby hospital at Kotdwar for immediate treatment.
The maneater leopard attacks have become the order of the day in the Kalagarh tiger reserve area also inhabited by village population scattered in several kilometers’ area.
But despite so much escalation in human casualties the wildlife or forest department is least worried to capture these dangerous maneaters who’ve become a great threat to human lives in the hills of Uttarakhand.
Meanwhile, according to the news from New Tehri, Garhwal on Wednesday morning an injured leopard who had created terror in Padoka village of Balganga range was trapped by the officials of the forest department to the immense relief of the local populace.
Since the maneater leopard was injured who’d sought refuge on the main road of Padokha village the forest department was able to trap him on the information received by the passers-by.
Terrified by the leopard’s presence in the midst of the pathway having taken refuge by the side of a boulder, the forest officials and the local villagers kept an eye over its movement the whole night and finally trapped him.
The injured maneater was later on sent to the Zoo’s rescue center for treatment. People of the area said that this maneater had created havoc in the village and its surroundings for the last many days.

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
Spread the love
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.

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.
