A call for constitution reform

My dear friends,
I have given a call for constitution reform I am not a Anna or Baba
Ram deo, The fight against corruption will be flop with time, because
only Lokayukta bill is not sufficient, it will be according to the
constitution, which we have adopted after indepence, when India was
immature republic, People were suffering from povert and iliteracy.
Now India is mature republic and people have awaken for their right.
Now we are not shephard whom any one can drive in one direction.
We have been taught that Aryan came from out side, and Vedic hymns are
shephard's song?
Accordingly, Hindu and muslim conflict has been raised with conspiracy
of the British rulers. The political parties have compromised with
this on the name of vote bank under secularism. Although India is
secular from time immemorial under 'eternal religion' Hindu is term
for Indians only, It is not a ritualistic religion as compared to the
Christian or Muslim, On the name of the so called 'Hindu rel…

Why we need a constitution reform?

Dear friends, fellow son’s and daughter’s of India,

Why we need a constitution reform? The question may be in your mind.
Please read it seriously and you will realize the need of constitution
reform.

We have been taught that Arya came from out side and Hindu is a
religion, The Vedas are songs of the shephards? We are moving round
the same unknowingly.

The most important branches of any country are education, medical, and
judiciary, they form the back bone of a Nation, In India, the
education Institutes, Medical, and judiciary are in the sphere of
corruption.
Otherwise the 10 % commission is a culture of scam and corruption
every where, which has taken a shape just like a legal right every
where. It is managed by the caucus in the different departments.
Its full burden is on the Indian public, we all are the victims of the
same, and our future generation also will face the same.

India is passing through a crucial period with scams and corruption.
To blame any one is a political conspir…

Karan Thapar interview with Dr. Subramanian Swamy

Thapar: Let’s come to some of the anomalies of the situation. We are all praising the way the Supreme Court has reached out and brought people to justice or is beginning the process. But there are some anomalies. For instance, if three top people from Reliance are arrested and jailed, is it odd that Anil Ambani is not touched at all?

Swamy: It’s not odd because it’s a question of sequencing. I think our judicial system has a capacity. We have many chargesheets coming and it’s not necessary that they should be in the first chargesheet or second chargesheet. I think the evidence gets built when you start putting the people who did the nitty-gritty of the operations and then get evidence from them. I think it will lead to a situation and I am 100% certain that Mr Anil Ambani and Mr Tata will see the insides of a jail.
Thapar: You are sure of that?
Swamy: I am absolutely certain.
Thapar: It’s so important things that I am going to repeat it, it will lead to a situation where you are 100% …

Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy on draft Report of the PAC

April 27, 2011.





Statement of Dr. Subramanian Swamy,

President of the Janata Party.

I fully endorse and welcome the draft Report of the Public Accounts Committee prepared under the Chairmanship of the former Union Minister Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi.


The principal conclusions of the draft PAC Report are –


(1) that the bureaucrats of the PMO failed to keep the Prime Minister in the loop on the process of decision making by the Ministry of Communications & IT; (2) the Finance Minister (Mr. P. Chidambaram) and the Telecom Minister (Mr. Raja) erroneously decided the price of Spectrum at the very low price of 2001, and that it is a complex subject and hence in future it should be left to the TRAI; (3) that the Government should cancel all the 2G licenses so far allotted to nine companies since January 10, 2008.


These three conclusions are what I had argued in the Supreme Court wherein I held the Prime Minister as a powerless pe…

SIO DEMANDS A FIRM STAND ON BAN AGAINST ENDOSULFAN

New Delhi (26.04.2010): The Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO) demanded a strong and firm stand from the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh in favour of the ban on ‘endosulfan’ at the current meeting of the Stockholm Convention.

The Secretary General of SIO, PM Salih was addressing a gathering during the anti-endosulfan demonstration at Jantar Mantar after the protest march from Kerala House to Jantar Mantar. He expressed surprise and grief that though majority countries during the 6th Meeting of Stockholm Convention called for a ban on Endosulfan, India opposed this move. Salih reiterated, “More than 80 coun tries in the world today have banned the manufacture, sales and use of endosulfan due to its ill effects, but India is yet to take a decision.” He further said, “We demand that the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh should take a firm stand and favour the ban of endosulfan”.

Fali S. Nariman:Nothing will be done unless “Civil Society” takes it up.

When asked why the two days conference at India international center didn’t talk about the effectiveness of the Lok Pal to ensure restitution of monies stacked abroad?

In my stint in the Rajya Sabha I had repeatedly drawn attention of the Government benches, of the huge amounts stacked abroad and the need to do something about it. Everyone congratulated me on the intervention but nothing was done. In one of my speeches I had also suggested nationalisation of all accounts held in Swiss Banks with a provision that moneys legitimately there would be paid back by the Custodian of the nationalised accounts in Banks in Switzerland to the holders – It was met with silence. But there was no positive response from the Government (neither the BJP Government nor the UPAI Government.

So take heart NOTHING WILL BE DONE – unless the wow-much maligned expression “Civil Society” takes it up.

Civil Society Draft of Lok pal Bill Round table discussion

The major points agreed up on in this meeting is

1 ) Judiciary should be probed equally but under another independent arm but not as part of Lokpal. Agreed unanimously.
2 ) On including PM the board was divided
3 ) Every higher authority should come under its purview.

Even the educated/aware crowd being susceptible to rhetoric instead of substance is very disheartening.

The activists led by Anna Hazare, who called off his fast-unto-death agitation last week after government conceded his demand for a Joint D…

Japan uses colour dye to trace radioactive leak

Emergency crews at Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant are using a colour dye to trace the source of a radioactive leak. It is believed seven tonnes of water with 10,000 times higher radioactivity than normal is escaping from the plant every hour.Emergency crews have tried unsuccessfully to plug a crack in a concrete pit in the plant's second reactor.

There are also plans to dump 11,500 tonnes of radioactive water at sea to free up storage space at the plant. The official told reporters that highly radioactive waste water has been accumulated at turbine buildings at Fukushima Daiichi, especially at the reactor unit 2.There is a need to release already stored water in order to accept the additional waste water. He said the release would take place as soon as necessary preparations are made.

Kazakhstan holds early presidential poll

Kazakhstan holds early presidential poll - Kazakhstan today holds an early presidential election that is widely expected to hand long-time President Nursultan Nazarbayev another term in office. The 70-year-old leader's current term ends in 2012, but he called for snap elections after rejecting a proposed referendum that would have extended his rule of one of the wealthiest Central Asian nations until 2020. He is expected to seek another term in 2016. Kazakhstan's main opposition leaders called for a voter boycott, saying there was not enough time to organize a meaningful campaign in time for the April 3 vote. Kazakhstan has never held an election deemed free and fair by international observers.

Thein Sein, sworn in President

On Wednesday, Burma’s dictator, Than Shwe, officially disbanded the State Peace and Development Council, the body through which Burma’s dictators have ruled the country since 1997. The new President, Thein Sein, was sworn in.

However, the changes are more about re branding than reform. Dictatorship remains alive and well in Burma, guaranteed by a new Constitution and a new political structure.The new government is the final stage in the regime’s so-called ‘roadmap to democracy’, following the sham election last November. In reality, it is a transition from military to civilian dictatorship. The new parliament has no real power. Real power still lies firmly with the military and a new all-powerful body, the National Defence and Security Council.

This is history repeating itself. Burma’s first dictatorship began in 1962, led by General Ne Win. Ne Win also introduced a new constitution through a rigged referendum and rubber-stamp parliament.

The real facts on the ground are that there a…
