Rules needs to be changed
Dear Editor, It refers to UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath taking part in Lok Sabha proceedings as its member on 21.03.2017. It recalls of such faulty provision of allowing a person having assumed charge as minister or Chief Minister in a state continuing with membership of Parliament dragging nation in costly mid-term elections because of single controversial vote of the then Orissa Chief Minister Girdhar Gomango becoming crucial in defeat of the then Atal Bihari Vajpayee government at the centre. Rule should be auto-termination of membership of Parliament on his-her taking oath as minister or Chief Minister in a state, or vice-versa. Time has come when rules may be made so that a sitting Member of Parliament or state-legislature may have to first resign from his or her earlier seat b...

Parking fee in colonies is absurd
Dear Editor, The idea of charging fee for parking of cars in Delhi colonies’ is most absurd and not viable solution. If parking attendants would manage then it would only add more of the problems for residents’ security concerns. In fact, commercial vehicles parked around colonies and on roadsides must be charged and towed away rather than private vehicles. The commercial vehicles like tempos trucks -Light Vehicles’ drivers and attendants often results in petty crimes and make whole area near their vehicles as dirty and filthy by taking bathe and ease themselves in open -the whole idea of Swachch Bharat is sent to doldrums by these commercial vehicles illegal parking. Not even a single case of such a violation -towing away or other legal measures are ever seen on records of the authoriti...

Indian farmers at the receiving end
Dear Editor, After the adopting of the doctrine of “Globalisation” & “Economic Reforms” in early nineties by the govt. of India at the behest of the World Trade organization (WTO) floated by US and other developed countries of world, the common masses in urban and rural areas of developing and under developed countries have been put to multiple types of miseries and hardships by way of retrenchment of employees and workers of public sector enmass, private public partnership (PPP), curbing small businesses by way of inviting MNCs and Foreigner investors to invest in retail sector, defence, media and other sectors in a big way, forcing the agriculturists to abandon their fertile lands for creating special Economic Zones (SEZs), big factories and industries there. The farmers who used to ...

Law prevails on public-statement
Dear Editor, It refers to media-reports about Attorney General of India on 21.03.2017 during arguments on demonetization in Supreme Court stating that law prevails over public-statements made by the Prime Minister. Even that argument of Attorney General did not hold good because what he stated as law, was in reference to the ordinance brought by the central government headed by the same Prime Minister. At a time when government wants litigations involving government to be reduced, such contradictory steps of government prolonged by such arguments by its law-officers unnecessarily burden workload of supreme judiciary. Otherwise also whole matter because of prolonged court-proceedings has lost relevance with controversy on deadline of 31.03.2017 to deposit demonetized currency likely to ...

Preserve water resources
Dear Editor, 22nd March celebrated as World Water day. Water is the base on which our life is built. Day by day, it is becoming clear that water is going to be the biggest casualty of the modern development process. It is ironic that nature’s gift to humans is available only for money these days. We are forced to buy clean drinking water after having polluted every known source. Rain, rivers and wells have been man's traditional sources of fresh water. Global warming upsets natural patterns of rainfall. Rivers are slowly killed at their sources by steady destruction of forests and the construction of big dams, and overdevelopment of ground water. Unless water is used equitably, and in a non-partisan manner, playing with it may prove to be more risky than playing with fire. A growing po...

Vacate govt. bungalows
Dear Editor, The then UPA government at the centre made a great impropriety in allotting government-bungalows at 6 Krishna Menon Marg, and 12-14-16 Gurudwara Rakabganj Road in Leyton-zone of New Delhi to Babu Jagjiwanram National Foundation and Bahujan Prerna Trust for authenticating memorials for late Jagjiwanram and late Kashiram respectively. But para 22 of a approved note by Union Cabinet on 16.08.2000 mentioned that a total ban shall be imposed on the conversion of government-bungalows into memorials of departed leaders. The approved note also specifically mentioned that the Trusts or Societies set up in memory of the departed leaders may set up Memorials or Samadhis, but the expenses to be incurred in this regard both for acquisition of land and for development of the Samadhi and ...

Pros and cons of social media
Dear Editor Social Media is a tool of communication. It is a very interactive tool of communication, more powerful than newspaper or magazine. But social media has its own benefits and difficulties. It spreads information quickly. It can help students to do better in schools. It can help people to flourish their business and ideas. It enables you to stay in touch with your parents, friends, relative and guides when you need them. It can help people who are separated from loved ones to feel like they are still part of the family and will feel less lonely. There is a downside to social media as well. The information that is being sent may be false or unreliable. Some of the pictures or words are sent through social media may not be appropriate and once the picture or words are sent ...

Un-desired decision
Dear Editor, It refers to RTI-response dated 21.02.2017 from Department of Economic Affairs (Government of India) which establishes that a hurried exercise was made to get signature of the then senior-most Secretary in Union Finance Ministry Ratan P Watal on balance print-order of 145 million pieces of one-rupee notes out of total 150 million pieces ordered, because Security Printing and Minting Corporation of India Limited (SPMCIL) could supply just 5 million pieces of notes with signature of the then Union Finance Secretary Rajiv Mahrishi till his transfer from the ministry. File-notings reveal that exercise for printing new one-rupee note with signatures of Ratan P Watal continued till 22.02.2016, even though he was to retire by end of February 2016. Notes could not be practically pr...

Air India faulty planning for losses
Dear Editor, The flight operations are withdrawn from Delhi to Rajkot and Rajkot to Delhi by Air India i.e. March 2, 2017, as it was incurring losses. This is due to the faulty planning of the airline. It was using an aircraft that could accommodate 40-odd passengers only and mostly it was full daily. If Air India cannot make it profitable I am sure a private airline can make this flights profitable by proper planning and research as Rajkot flight from Delhi serves nearby towns cities like Jamnagar, Junagadh, Gondal, Chorwad etc. AI has no accountability and no responsibility is ever fixed on its staff officers for the various problems the airline faces. —Mahesh Kumar, E-Mail: B-49, Gulmohar Park, New Delhi...

Victory of women
Dear Editor, Election-results for UP state-assembly reflect justice given by voters to women specially. One is Swati Singh of BJP from Sarojini Nagar in Lucknow, who and her daughter were publicly insulted and and inhumanly humiliated by BSP leaders in July 2016. Second notable winner is Garima Singh again of BJP from Amethi, whose rights as a lawful wife were snatched by her husband Sanjay singh. Interestingly the lady defeated the second wife of her husband Amita Singh of Congress, apart from notorious rape-accused Gayatri Prajapati of Samajwadi Party. Canvassing for Gayatri Prajapati in election-rally by outgoing Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was one of the major factors of defeat for Samajwadi Party. BJP has recorded its win even from Muslim-dominated areas also. It may be that Mus...

Standardize consumables in car-industry
Dear Editor, Union government should induce standardization of common accessories like tyres and batteries so that same parts may be used in different models of cars produced by various car-manufacturers. It will heavily bring down cost of consumables through their bumper production in extra large numbers in some limited sizes and specifications. It can be achieved by merging some nearing sizes and specifications. Such guidelines though also mentioned in auto-policy of Union government, are never followed in actual practice. Too many variants of any car-model confuse customers. Basically there must be only two variants (apart from the third with automatic gears), one basic Lx for economy customers and the other Vx with all company-fitted extra accessories and luxuries for affording cust...

Employees grievances deserve priority resolution
Dear Editor, In the State of Jammu and Kashmir, employees, Pensioners, daily wage workers and all other sections are being made to suffer financial and other multifarious types of problems as the State government is maintaining cryptic silence over their long over due grievances. The cost of living is becoming dearer day by day as prices of almost all goods of daily consumption are soaring sky high.

Boycott sale of foreign brands of soft drinks
Dear Editor, It refers to news-reports about traders in Tamilnadu deciding to boycott sale of foreign-brands of soft-drinks. According to recent reports, Coca-Cola in its recent advertisement said that their products, Coke, Sprite, Thums Up and Limca, are not recommended for children. An RTI response confirms that Joint Committee on Food Management of Parliament through a communication dated 06.08.2003 had banned sale of all foreign-brands of soft drinks in catering centres and canteens of Parliament, also directing for immediate removal of display refrigerators and advertisements of these products from Parliament complex. But public-health must not be considered less important than of Parliamentarians and others using Parliament canteens. It is significant that cola-companies voluntari...

EC should ensure neutrality
Dear Editor, It refers to recent media-interview of Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi rightly following his predecessors in advocating for selection of Election Commissioners by a collegiums also consisting of Prime Minister and Opposition Leader. It is indeed surprising that while persons for all other such posts like of Information Commissioners and Vigilance Commissioners are selected by the collegiums, it is highly improper that Election Commissioners are still appointed by ruling central government that too when post of Election Commissioner is one such post which requires perfect political neutrality. In past, successive NDA or UPA governments were at some occasions were criticized for appointing their own man as Election Commissioners. Election Commission this time has be...
