Rape of a 5 year old once again puts spotlight on the increasing crime graph in Uttarakhand

Published

The crime rate in the hilly state of Uttarakhand has been on an upward swing despite several claims by the state government of enhancing the police budget and therefore the subsequent improvement in the crime graph.

The most worrisome fact is that the cases of women rapes, murders, dowry deaths, and immolations are on the rise and adolescents too are the regular victims of these obnoxious rapes.
Citing one of such tragedies which people of the state are fully aware is the stalking of an 18-year Pauri girl and her subsequent immolation in broad daylight. A number of such shameful incidents has happened in Kotdwar, Satpuli, Pauri, Haldwani, Pithoragarh and Chamoli districts etc last year.
Several incidents of women assaults and harassment are not reported in the interior villages due to social stigma and the fear of criminals.
There are also no definite or authentic figures available if one asks for the crime statistics.
Yesterday the brutal and obnoxious rape of a mere five-year-old girl and subsequently viciously injuring her came to light in Raiwaala, Dehradun – the capital city of Uttarakhand state.
The rapist fled from the crime scene after raping and injuring the innocent girl who is in an extremely critical condition.
The incident occurred yesterday under the Raiwala police station’s jurisdiction in Haripurkalan area.
According to sources, the police have got the severely injured child rape victim admitted in a government hospital of Haridwar and are on the lookout for the culprit, who is still at large.
There is tension all around and the local residents are extremely furious. This incident has once again put the spotlight on the rising crimes against girl child and women in Uttarakhand.
According to a report in TOI last year,  a look at the FIRs registered in the police stations across Uttarakhand, tells us that on an average there are about eight cases of crime reported in the state every day.
What is more worrisome is the fact that the cases of dowry-related deaths and rapes reported in 2018 have doubled from the previous year, while cases of molestations have also doubled compared to 2017.
As per TOI, data assessed from the police department from January to October 31, 2018 – 2,498 cases of crime were registered against women.
While during the first ten months of 2017, 2045 cases of women related crimes were registered in various police stations, in 2016 this figure was less than 2000 i.e. with 1745 cases.
As per the TOI report of 2018, the incidents of rapes increased to 438 while in 2017  the rape count was 237 and this figure was even less in the preceding year i.e. 2016 when 278 cases were registered.
In 2018 a 14 year mute and deaf girl was raped who also gave birth to the child while in Dehradun a 15-year-old student was raped by her seniors resulting in shock and sensation all around.
According to a news report, Haridwar and Dehradun are the worst criminally affected districts in terms of rape cases with Haridwar reporting 132 rapes cases followed by Dehradun with 110 cases in 2018.
Similarly, the incidents of molestation are also on the rise across the state as per police records showing 67 cases of molestations in 2018 which has increased from 29 in the year 2017.
According to recent information,  in 2019-20 the Uttarakhand government has allocated 4.2% of its budget for the expenditure in the police which is considered to be the highest than the allocations in other states (3.9%) in 2018-19.
The point is mere allocation of the budget is not enough as the state police machinery from top to bottom will have to be more vigilant and action-oriented in curbing the rising crime graph across Uttarakhand, especially ensuring the safety and security of women considered to be the most vulnerable lot of the society.
It’s a common saying that Uttarakhand has become a safe haven for outside and domestic criminals.
The efficient police of this hilly state will have to use its acumen and intelligence to crush the criminals and rapists who are nothing but parasites on our society.
The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat had last year assured that his government will soon bring legislation to award death penalty to the rapists of the minor girls but what nothing has happened regarding this.

Speaker fixes Thursday for floor test in Karnataka Vidhana Soudha

Speaker of Karnataka Vidhan Saudha
Spread the love
Read Time: 3 minutes

The Karnataka political turmoil seems to have reached to a conclusion for the time being as both the warring parties, the Congress JD( U) combine and the BJP have agreed to a proposal for calling the floor test on Thursday at Bengaluru Vidhana Soudha to finally decide which political party commands the requisite majority to form the government in the  southern state.

The former chief minister and BJP leader Yaduruppa had met the speaker and had requested him to call the house for floor test at the earliest but the latter had turned it down as the apex court’s decision of the Karnataka impasse is to be delivered tomorrow evening.
Meanwhile, emerging out of the political affairs committee meeting, the former Congress CM of Karnataka and CLP leader Sidharamaih revealed that after discussions with the Congress JD ( S) combine as well as the BJP the speaker has fixed Thursday for the floor test in the Karnataka Vidhana Soudha.
There will be a detailed debate in the house and the voting will take place thereafter.
This means that now both the Congress JD ( S) alliance and the BJP are quite eager to derive maximum advantage from the impending political crisis and  for this, they have three days with them.
Political observers say the ruling coalition leaders will do their best to woo the annoyed dissidents during these 72 precious hours.
However, it remains to be seen whether the obstinate dissidents, now in all 17 in numbers will fall into the Congress JD( S) trap?
It may be recalled that all the dissident lawmakers of Congress and JD(S) are still holed up in a Hotel in Mumbai and are still adamant over resigning from their respective seats. Further, they want to extend their undisputed support to BJP.
They have also lodged a complaint with the highest police authority of Mumbai to provide them adequate security as they fear for their life.
They have also asked the police authorities to not allow any political leader of Mumbai or Karnataka visit them in the hotel as their decision to resign and thereafter also support the BJP is final.
It may be recalled that at the first instance about 14 to 15 MLAs of the Congress and JD( S) had submitted their resignation letters to the speaker followed by two independent and three Congress lawmakers.
This had led to the reduction of the JD(S) Congress strength from earlier 118 to 101 while the BJP’s strength increased to 107 after the support of the two independents.
According to political analysts if the ruling coalition succeeds to persuade a minimum of six of its MLAs if not all, it would still be in a comfortable position to save their government. As for sure one vote of the speaker in the event of a tie would go in their favour.
However, the Karnataka crisis has further aggravated and all eyes are now fixated on tomorrow’s apex court judgement as well as the floor test on Thursday. For now, the Supreme Court has directed the speaker to maintain the status quo.

Ajay Bhatt MP and state BJP president is against the opening of liquor plant at Devprayag

Spread the love
Read Time: 4 minutes

The present government of Uttarakhand is in the midst of controversy for opening a liquor manufacturing plant in the religious township Devprayag, the main confluence point of two rivers Bhagirathi and Alaknanda in Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand.

Devprayag possesses tremendous spiritual and religious sanctity from these points of view, especially, it being the main confluence area of two pious rivers emanating from  Gangotri glaciers and finally forming the pious Ganges.
Uttarakhand is the abode of Gods having four most sacred ancient shrines viz Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath, and Devprayag town being the central point which gives passage to tourists and pilgrims from all over the country. Visiting these four important religious shrines hold tremendous spiritual and religious sanctity. The people feel that the opening of the liquor factory will vitiate the holy environment of this peaceful spiritual township.
The government of Uttarakhand has opened a liquor factory here producing its own liquor brand called Hill Top to be supplied to all the official  liquor vends in the entire state to earn handsome revenue as the state’s financial deficit is growing by the day having crossed 45000 crores by now which was merely 6000 crores or less when the state was formed.
There is strong opposition by the local populace to the opening of the liquor factory of this domestic brand at the Deprayag religious township, which will otherwise vitiate its otherwise pious tranquil environment.
It has been learned that after the Hill Top whiskey brand being produced by the Devprayag liquor plant is now also available in the market. The controversy has further aggravated as the opposition and protests in media continue to grow.
People are questioning the credibility and integrity of the government which majorly believes in the Hindu way of life.
Therefore the emphasis on selling liquor on a massive scale to bridge its financial deficit than banking on other alternative mediums like through the promotion of tourism, improving the condition of agriculture, encouraging industrialization, etc is not in sync with their ideology.
The government is emphasizing on liquor sale in the state on a wide scale to generate maximum revenue irrespective of the fact that hundreds of thousands of poor families will get affected, liquor addicts will die of liver-related diseases due to excessive liquor consumption and the socio-cultural structure and fabric of the society will be wrecked.
Even the Uttarakhand BJP chief and a newly elected member of parliament from Nainital Ajay Bhatt has expressed his reservation on the opening of the liquor plant in Devprayag.  He has questioned that while in the opposition the entire BJP had opposed the Denis brand allegedly introduced by the then Congress government at the cost of another prestigious brand, then how can our government do the same while in power?
Ajay Bhatt stated he does not know as to when this liquor plant was opened. The idea would have been to give employment to the locals.  Even then he will take up this issue with the chief minister Trivendra Rawat in this context.
It may be recalled that the government of Uttarakhand’s excise department considers the widespread selling of liquor in the hills as its main and major source of income as it generates Rs. 2300 crores annually through massive liquor sales.
The BJP government of Uttarakhand had been extremely liberal in selling liquor in Uttarakhand as it considers it to be as a big revenue source of more than 2 thousand crores annually.
Liquor was also supplied through the mobile vans in the interiors where protests led to the closure of authorized liquor shops.
The government has allowed the sale of liquor even in grocery shops having an annual turnover of Rs. 50 lakhs.
The licence fee has been fixed at Rs. 5 lakhs to procure the liquor licence for the grocery shops.
Even in twenty room capacity hotels with Rs. five lakh licence fee, liquor shops have been allowed by the excise department.
According to the website of the excise department, the Excise department of Uttarakhand is the second largest revenue contributor to the state government.
As per its website, the department has the challenging objective of automating the alcohol supply chain management system in the whole of Uttarakhand in real time and also to increase the revenue collection of the department.
As per sources, the liquor vendors charge 10 to 20 rupees extra on every single sale without even receipts and the quality of the majority of these brands are allegedly below standard as compared to the liquor of Delhi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has visited historic Kedarnath Shrine five times and Badrinath Dham, number of times as well,  during his six-year tenure till now.

He even meditated for the whole night on 19 May in a cave near Kedarnath shrine before the declaration of the results of the national election 2019.
There have been special impetus therefore from the central as well as the state governments, both ruled by the BJP at present to modernize and facelift the historic temple vicinities.
Prime minister Narendra Modi had been an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva and Vishnu and therefore had not only visited both Kedarnath and Badrinath shrines number of times after becoming prime minister but had also been here in Lord Shiva’s obeisance in Uttarakhand Himalayas’ years ago for several months finally being blessed wholly.
In view of this, the union government on the directions of prime minister Narendra Modi has given Kedarnath shrine and its surrounding vicinity a new facelift initially commenced by the Congress governments of Uttarakhand led by Vijay Bahuguna and Harish Rawat post-Kedarnath disaster of 2013 and its by spending hundreds of crores of rupees.
Similarly in Badrinath Dham too the union government is spending 48 crores for the development and renovation of the 1200-year-old historic ancient temple as well as its nearby vicinity.
According to the latest news reports pouring in from various sources, the government of Uttarakhand on the pattern of the development of Kedarnath Shrine and its surroundings is now concentrating on the overall development of historic Badrinath Shrine and its surrounding vicinity to give it a new facelift by renovating roads, lodging boarding arrangements, buildings, etc.
The central government has already sanctioned a budget of Rs. 48 crores to give this 12-century old historic temple a complete facelift with improvement in facilities for the pilgrims and tourists who visit here every year in lakhs from all over the country and the globe.

According to the chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat in view of the multiple increase in the number of pilgrims at Badrinath after the dreaded ecological disaster of June 2013, the government is finalising a masterplan to give Badrinath Shrine and its surroundings a complete facelift for the comfort and convenience of pilgrims who throng in lakhs during the Yatra season to have lord Badrinath’s obeisance.
The chief minister said that various corporate houses are prepared to contribute handsomely in this development move of Badrinath Dham in addition to the central government’s Rs. 48 crore budget.
According to the development model of Badrinath shrine, the civic amenities, like clean drinking water, hygiene, cleanliness, and modernized lodging and boarding facilities for the comfort and convenience of pilgrims will be created compounded with the illumination of the temple and its surrounding with LED lights and wide roads with huge decorative entry gates.
The entire vicinity will be beautified and made environmentally friendly. The Yatri Dharamshalaas will be constructed on a large scale with the reconstruction of a foot overbridge over BAAMNI NAALA, complete beautification of deity Goddess statue n its vicinity and construction of spacious parking area.

The Bhartiya Janata Party’s muscleman lawmaker from Khanpur, Haridwar and the landlord of Landaur region in Uttarakhand, infamous for brandishing  pistols and guns in videos while dancing and drinking that ultimately went viral in the social media bringing disrepute to the saffron party is so powerful indeed being a wrestler, muscleman and  rich MLA wielding tremendous clout, personal and political, that despite so much of political and social pressure in media by the opposition leaders and even his party’s MPs’ and MLAs, the state and the central high command did not have guts to expel him from the party permanently but only for three months to cover up the controversy.

This unambiguously indicates that a powerful and muscle yielding lawmaker is above the party discipline and ethics.
The Khanpur MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion whose viral video allegedly using derogatory and unethical remarks against Uttarakhand and its people had led to creating a nationwide controversy has been expelled earlier for merely three months and debarred for taking part in party meetings and activities but after the latest incident except issuing him a show cause notice no action has been taken against him.
Meanwhile, according to the latest news flash and a tweet of ANI, the district magistrate of Haridwar has revoked the licenses of three weapons of Khanpur MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion which had been brandished by him in the video while dancing and drinking, the videos of which went viral.
According to the ANI tweet: Licences of the three weapons of the suspended BJP MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion have been revoked. He had been issued the notice by the district magistrate of Haridwar Dipendra Choudhary.
Champion was earlier seen in a viral video brandishing guns. Champion’s one earlier video was later released which became viral relating to his enjoying a dance of a girl while sitting in his office with friends on a Bollywood number.
The Congress party, Uttarakhand Kranti Dal and even the BJP MPs have condemned this act of Pranav Champion calling for immediate action against him.
The BJP Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni had assured of strict disciplinary as well as legal action against Champion for abusing Uttarakhand and brandishing pistols publicly in the video.
The Uttarakhand state BJP president and MP Ajay Bhatt too tweeted twice: The party had earlier expelled Pranav Champion, MLA for three months from the party for acts of indiscipline and had been barred to participate in BJP’s official meetings.
The second tweet mentions: The MLA Pranav Champion had used the unethical and ugly language against Uttarakhand as per the video going viral. This is highly condemnable. I am myself shamed by this immoral act and regret the same.
It may be recalled that Pranav Champion was earlier expelled for three months on the charge of misbehaving and threatening an electronic channel journalist a few months ago in Delhi’s Uttarakhand Sadan.

The Bhartiya Janata Party member of parliament from Delhi and son of the former chief minister of NCT of Delhi  late Sahib Singh Verma, Parvez Sahib Singh met the lieutenant governor of the capital Anil Baijal and submitted him a list of several mosques and Kabristans ( graveyards) on government’s illegally encroached lands and have demanded their vacation as well as severe necessary departmental action against the erring officials as well, under whose jurisdiction and negligence of these religious buildings and graveyards have been arbitrarily constructed.
According to the MP Parvez Sahib Singh Verma, the chief secretary of Delhi and several senior bureaucrats of the concerned departments were also called to his office by the LG.
The LG Anil Baijal had asked the concerned officials to cross-check the list presented by MP Parvez Sahib Singh Verma and submit the detailed report to the LG office at the earliest.
Speaking to media persons MP Verma has said that the Lieutenant governor of Delhi Anil Baijal gave him a patient hearing and assured him to do the needful by verifying his claims and also initiating necessary action against the erring officials if found guilty of negligence in this regard.
When asked by reporters, especially of Aaj Tak about the allegations on him by opposition parties about selectively pursuing the matter of mosques and graveyards thus allegedly doing the politics of religion and not targeting certain temples and Gurudwaras of the majority community built on government lands, Parvez Sahib Singh Verma said that he had asked people to inform him about the mosques and  graveyards being built on illegally encroached government land but has not received any complaints about temples and Gurudwaras built on government land illegally.
The politics have hot up by this selective approach of the BJP MP say sources and questions are being asked by individuals as well as some minority organizations of targetting the minorities willfully which is not acceptable.
This issue is too sensitive as it involves the minorities versus majority implications say, certain political analysts.
Some people say that in case of action is taken on this complaint against mosques and graveyards built on unauthorized government land, the relevant authorities should definitely take due action but then the law should be equal for all religions and religious structures built on encroached land arbitrarily irrespective of any particular religion.
Such matters of religious implications that derive different political connotations should be strictly dealt with by the honorable courts than through political interventions as at the base of religion lies politics say some political analysts.
The protracted issue of Ram Janmabhoomi has not been resolved since several decades despite the intervention of successive governments after independence, finally arriving in the honorable supreme court for final resolution. What’s your take friends?

CWC to choose new Congress president next week

In view of the confusing situation in the Congress party to elect its new leader and party president, after the resignation of Rahul Gandhi and likely loss of its two government’s in Karnataka and Goa reducing its governments’ number in states compared to the BJP which has is governments in 19 states, the moral of its rank and file is highly demoralized and the country’s media, allegedly  influenced by the supposed backing of the ruling party is further  leaving no stone unturned to make mockery of the party that ruled the country  for more than six decades since independence.
The saturation point of tolerance of various senior leaders and the younger ones’ has also reached its maximum with the party veterans like Dr. Karan Singh, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and party general secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia, urging the highest decision making body  of Congress, the Congress Working Committee to elect a new but energetic, experienced and dynamic youth leader as the next president in order to resurrect the party at the pan India level and save it from going into disorientation after Rahul’s resignation, at the earliest.
There had been repeated and a number of attempts by the chief ministers of Congress-ruled states like Ashok Gehlot, Kamal Nath, Baghel and senior most party leaders including Sonia and Priyanka Gandhi to persuade Rahul Gandhi to take back his decision but of no avail.
Finally, the top leadership of the party has now decided to convene the Congress Working Committee next week or so and take a formidable decision to choose a new leader from outside the Nehru Gandhi family.
There are reports that Congress’s senior-most leader Sonia Gandhi and Rahul has confabulated with other senior leaders and come to the conclusion of reaching at a consensus on a new party president’s name at the earliest, so as to put a full stop to all speculations and quickly move forward to rejuvenate the party at the national level as well as in states.
There had been several exercises earlier as well, after Rahul Gandhi’s quitting from the national presidentship and names of Ashok Gehlot, Captain Amarinder Singh, Sachin Pilot, Mallikarjun Kharge, Jyotiraditya Scindia, etc were discussed but nothing concrete or fruitful has come out till yet.
The party seems to be more interested in a young and Dalit face to give an impression that Congress party worries about the lowest ebb of society.
According to the latest sources though the name of Jyotiraditya Scindia was cropped up recently for the top slot but he’d refused and 59-year-old former youth Congress leader, former union minister and a Dalit from Maharashtra Mukul Wasnik’s name is appearing as a forerunner.
While Mukul Wasnik is youthful, a committed Congressman, a capable organizer, and well-read politician, his Dalit background too suit the party tremendously.
It’s almost final now that in a week or two week’s time a new Congress party president would be elected or appointed by the Congress Working Committee.

As per the party sources, a show cause notice is issued before expelling anyone from the party for an indefinite period and it is in consonance with the BJP norms that he has first been issued a show cause with expulsion for three months to explain the reasons, before being finally expelled from the party.
Sources reveal that  Kunwar Pranav Champion was seen dancing on a Bollywood song consuming liquor and brandishing three revolvers in a video posted by him in social media using highly unethical remarks against Uttarakhand creating a furore and stir in the political and media circles of Uttarakhand and the country.
Sources say that Kunwar Pranav Champion has denied it as a fresh video and said that this is an old one when he was in the Congress party.
