Political crisis in Nagaland
Dear Editor, It refers to political crisis now in Nagaland where state-governor PB Acharya has desired state Chief Minister Shurhozelie Liezietsu to take a floor test and prove his majority in the face of TR Zeliang claiming he had more MLAs on his side. Such happenings have become quite common in Indian politics. To prevent Horse-Trading of MLAs through corrupt means, and to ensure full-terms of these state-assemblies, Chief Ministers in these two states should be elected through secret and compulsory votes of all members of respective legislative assemblies (MLAs) through Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) on nominations signed by at least 34-percent MLAs. Members not participating in the democratic process of electing Chief Ministers may lose voting-right in the assembly even though r...

Exchange of vital information
Dear Editor, Marriage-relations were fixed usually amongst known families in ancient times. But with fast modernisation of society equipped with social networking, marriages are now-a-days fixed at times even through chatting without any personal meeting between marrying couple, what to talk about any meeting between family-members of two sides. Result is India following a western culture where spouses are changed like clothes. Unlike in ancient era when marriage-ties were considered life-long union, there is often lack of trust between husband and wife resulting in unhappy married and family life. Since one of the main reasons in such case is hiding or misrepresentation of income and financial-background from the other side, central government should consider idea of making it compulso...

Fratricide incidents on rise
Dear Editor, It is unfortunate that the incidents of fratricide are becoming frequent in the army and other para-military forces and that too over trivial matters. In the recent incident, one Major was shot dead by a jawan in Uri sector in Jammu and Kashmir the other day after they entered into an altercation as the former (Major) had objected to the use of phone by the latter while on duty. The past two decades have seen a steady rise in such incidents thus alarming the security set up and compelling them to devise ways and means to check the disturbing trend. Spiralling stress, frustration levels, exhausting patience, growing intolerance due to long stretched out conflict like situation particularly in J&K were figured out as major reasons behind rise in such incidents. The forces h...

Rail Fare subsidy
Dear Editor, It refers to Indian Railways considering idea of motivating affording people to give up subsidies available to various categories of people on rail-fares. Idea is not bad to offset losses to public-sector transporter. But there are little chances of affording people leaving privileged facility of subsidies voluntarily. Therefore best is to necessitate income-certificate for those who wish to avail subsidy-benefit for railway-services. It may be recalled that repeated appeals including from Prime Minister have not been effective for those with family-incomes above rupees ten lakhs in getting LPG-subsidy surrendered. However if rule would have been to provide LPG-subsidy only on giving affidavits regarding family-income, number of people availing LPG-subsidy would have ...

Tejaswy Yadav claims innocence
Dear Editor, It refers to Bihar Deputy Chief Minister clarifying that allegations about him are about the era when he was a child without even mustachio and beard, meaning thereby that all such acquisitions should be on the father who might have misused his position to grab and acquire wealth in name of his minor child. Such a statement makes cases against fodder-scam accused former Bihar Chief Minister even stronger. It is indeed funny that son through his kid-like statement is trying to confirm blame on father, unlike Shravankumar who did everything to serve his blind parents. Government-agencies including Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) deserve all compliments for treating viral of corruption in complete body-family rather than in separate body-...

Save middle-class traders
Dear Editor, It is now certain that central government is not going to look into practical difficulties faced by a totally irrational and non-practical procedure stipulated for otherwise ideal Goods and Service Tax-GST forced on the nation from 01.07.2017. At least central government should look into a manifold increased high fees now being charged by auditors, consultants and chartered-accountants, which can be done by making filing of GST-returns on quarterly basis at least in the initial phase of implementation of GST. Perception of Union Revenue Secretary that GST-returns can even be filed by a click through mobile-phones of kin of illiterate traders is far from a practical aspect, because with too many complexities in trade and industry and general government-perception of taking t...

SC observations on appointment of EC
Dear Editor, It is indeed unfortunate that every poll-reform in the country is done only after intervention of Supreme Court. It is also a known fact that opposition in various regimes is at times critic of Election Commissioners termed as own persons of the appointing political rulers. But criticizing opposition fails in duty to modify selection procedure after itself coming to power. Even retired Chief Election Commissioners including also the recently retired Nasim Zaidi always advocated for much-needed reform to ensure perfect neutrality by persons seated on the responsible post. It is indeed surprising that while persons for all other such posts like of Information Commissioners and Vigilance Commissioners are selected by the collegiums, Election Commissioners till now are appoint...

Hike in subsidised LPG - post GST
Dear Editor, The Goods & Services Tax (GST) has been launched by the Union Government with great pomp and show in the country with the slogan "one nation-one Tax" as bonanza to the people of India painting brighter picture saying that with this kind of tax regime in place the prices of consumer and other goods will come down heavily giving relief to the people from sky rocketing prices. If it happens so the people of India especially the poor ones will be benefited and what will be the actual situation the people will come to know soon as here in J&K State this law may be put in place from Friday mid night. However, the first shock came to the people when the price of subsidised LPG was raised steeply by over Rs. 32 in one go. The poor people and middle classes are using subsidised LPG ...

Life-time ban on convicted politicians
Dear Editor, It refers to Supreme Court on 12.07.2017 requiring Election Commission to come clear on its stand on a life-time ban on contesting elections by tainted persons. It is noteworthy that Election Commission supported the Public Interest Litigation –PIL- at Supreme Court for provisions to decide criminal cases related to people representatives, public servants and members of judiciary within one year and to debar the convicted persons from legislature, executive and judiciary for life, further supporting PIL for implementing important electoral reforms as proposed by Election Commission, Law Commission and Nation Commission to Review the Working of the Constitution. Since Central Government has not supported the PIL on the ground that judiciary should not interfere on such legis...

Discontinuation of non-veg
Dear Editor, Air India has further stepped towards cost-cutting by now discontinuing serving non-vegetarian food in its domestic flights, after earlier it announced discontinuing salad from food served in economy class of international flights. Since all airliners except Jet Airways and Air India have discontinued serving free food on their domestic flights, it should also follow the same for further cost-cutting. It can even follow Indian Railways by charging cost of earphones from passengers desiring to use TV-screens on seat-backs in domestic flights of Air India. However it is senseless to expect sharing of its in-flight magazines by three passengers in a row, when the public-sector airliner decided to put just one copy of the magazine to be shared by three passengers in a row. In c...

Water logging problem in Jammu-still a distant dream
Dear Editor, Referring to the news publish in Kashmir Time pertaining to water logging problem on Jewel-Canal road, more than six decades have been passed neither the water logging problem has been solved by the Jammu Municipal Corporation nor by the state administration who have claimed to provide best services to the people of the state. There is long pending demand of the people belongs Krishna Nagar Jammu and other adjoining areas but the state government especially JMC and UEED have failed to address the water logging problem in the area since more six decades. The government has no concrete plan to sort out this issue even though the country is having high-tech technology in restoring the water logging problems. The recent announcement and the list prepare for Smart cities where J...

Kaliyug ka Badshah
Dear Editor, King of kaliyug has proved that kaliyug has really come when a true homage coming from heart of a poet got a setback through legal notice served to him in return of praise for another great poet who happened to be father of the king. Humbleness of the poet is reflected through a sober tweet in return. Anyone however high he or she may be, is supposed to have at least some little courtesy in understanding feelings and sentiments of an artist much junior to him or her. May god decide who was at fault, and may punish the guilty one rather than the Court. It may be that many others like me might have lost all respect and regard for the king he enjoyed till now. Perhaps destiny makes steep rise witness a steep fall too. —Subhash Chandra Agrawal, 1775 Kucha Lattushah Dariba, ...

Revise PIN-code
Dear Editor, Present Postal-Index-Number (PIN) code system in Delhi-New Delhi adopted many decades back needs to be reallocated with large-scale changes in PIN code boundaries where areas covered by some PIN codes have much less population/ area/received postal articles while many others are comparatively too big. New PIN codes should equally divide the area covered, and PIN codes of neighbouring areas should be in serial order. Major roads, river or railway-lines should divide new PIN code zones. Rather such revised PIN code numbers can then be made base for delimitation to fix boundaries of constituencies for Municipal Corporation, Vidhaan Sabha and Lok Sabha. Department of Posts should also communicate with all offices (private or government) situated at Sansad-Marg (New Delhi) to us...

Launch of RTI-online portal by Delhi Govt.
Dear Editor, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal fondly remembered his old colleagues Aruna Roy and Nikhil Dey apart from Anna Hazare during his inaugural-speech for launch of RTI-online portal for 172 departments of Delhi government. It may be recalled that Arvind Kejriwal was a team-member along with Nikhil Dey in the RTI movement launched under leadership of Aruna Roy. However RTI on-line portal of Delhi government has a small lacuna when option for filing RTI applications and subsequent transfer under section 6(3) of RTI Act does not include three municipal corporations in the city, New Delhi Municipal Council and Delhi Police. Inclusion of these public-authorities in select-option is necessary because many of RTI applications received in various offices concerning Delhi government...

Lalu Yadav on CBI raids
Dear Editor, This refers to your report “Lalu Tadav on CBI raids” (KT- July 8). Lalu is a master of fraud and buster. In India, the land of the most corrupt, nothing will happen to these folks. History shows the most corrupt politicians in India who have destroyed the economy of India and has provided a new direction to the government.The fodder scam case against Lalu has been going on for more than a decade and nothing has happened to him. The limelight and power obsession in the veins of Lalu is quite famous and everybody knows about it. Corrupt politicians should stand exposed before the public. Corruption can be fought only by strong man like Modi. Lalu is accused of carrying out corruption and irregularities in payments for animal fodder and is already a convict in one case and...

Contrast verdict for same offence
Dear Editor, It refers to Supreme Court deciding to hear a review-petition by a murderer awarded for life-sentence on the plea that another accused in the same case with same charge-sheet was sentenced for just ten-year jail-term but by a different bench of the Apex Court. Episode reminds of Apex Court verdict just three days prior to infamous Delhi gang-rape of 16th December 2012, when the Apex Court surprisingly held that rape-cum-murder after consuming liquor was not rarest of rare because it was a crime committed in drunken state of mind. It is a common knowledge that such a convict leaves no mode of entertaining himself where drinking before rape is also a part of such composite crime. Evidently the said verdict would never have been endorsed by many other judges of the Supreme Cour...

GST to hit handloom sector in Andhra
By Sudhansu R Das
The state of Telangana has a rich handloom tradition and nearly 1.5 lakh handloom weavers of Nalgonda, Karimnagar, Mehabubnagar, Warangal, Khammam and Medak district in the state hone their skill to keep the tradition alive. Though the number of handloom weavers is dwindling the skill and artistry of handloom weavers survive due to the hard work, sincerity and dedication of a handful of senior waivers. The handloom weavers are apprehensive of wage cut and job loss in the new GST regime. The 5% tax on yarn, 18% tax on services like warping and twisting and 5% tax on finished item will increase the cost of handloom item by 28%. If the cost of a silk saree is above Rs 1 lakh the tax will be 12% instead of 5%. So the overall increase will be 35% on exclusive handloom items. Senior weavers ta...
