What is the impact of such a law? I am hearing two different opinions, and I tend to agree with the second one. First is from the "secular" camp which says Punjab has been brave enough to completely make the central laws irrelevant in Punjab. The second is from the "communal" camp which says that these bills would still require ascent of the President of India, as they are amending central laws. For example when MH enacted the MCOCA to hit back at the mafia it required President's ascent as this act was byepassing/modifying some provisions in IPC and Cr.PC (which are centrally legsilated laws).
Note; even the news quoted above says only the state made "bills" have been passed, but it generally becomes an "Act" only when Governor approves it. Seems to be jugglery of words.



The center's new avatars of the farm laws have defanged a few long and decades old entrenched lobbies that earned large amounts of money, and as a result, had acquired massive electoral influence over captive vote banks and were self sustaining in terms of assured revenues that came in year after year and kept a few clans/families in power and political relevance.

they are the ones opposing the new laws and not the farmers who are in reality their hapless victims and bonded labor to keep them in luxury.

Once their vote banks are marginalized, and these greedy families/clans are slowly neutralized, the electorate will not tolerate them as easily as before and this will affect their other almost monopolistic businesses as well, because other competitors will soon spring up to grab a share of the pie.

the congis and captain seem to be running their own rackets of MSP procurement and commission collection :mrgreen:

no wonder pappu and pappi are so frantically active and panicked, the mafia famiglia and the casa eyetaliano has to protect it's own cuts from all these deals.

using the cover of MSP, punjab mandi agents procure more grain than is produced in punjab by illegally bringing in grain purchased by these agents in UP and bihar at significantly cheaper non MSP prices.

these mandi agents are all politicos and these rackets are happening in one form or the other at all other mandis across the country.



Foodgrains MSP, Procurement Under Scrutiny After Nexus Between Officials And Traders Is Exposed

Foodgrains MSP, Procurement Under Scrutiny After Nexus Between Officials And Traders Is Exposed


Image

Snapshot
Revelations of irregularities are pointers that politicians and their parties would be badly affected by the agricultural reforms.

Probably, these developments are the tip of the iceberg.



A couple of developments this week has cast shadow on the procurement of foodgrains by government agencies at the minimum support price (MSP) fixed by the Union government.

First, is the release of negotiations between a district manager of the Punjab State Civil Supplies Corporation (PUNSUP) and a trader on procuring paddy bought at a lower price from outside the state at MSP by The Tribune daily.

Second is the Madras High Court ordering the State Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) to conduct search operations at all paddy procurement centres in Tamil Nadu following allegations of corruption in procurement.

The first development has raised the question over the procurement of foodgrains by Punjab for buffer stocks, which is being maintained by the Centre for distribution through the public distribution system or meeting any food emergency.

It is an open secret that a large volume of foodgrains from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, bought from farmers at lower prices, find their way into Punjab and get sold to procurement agencies such as PUNSUP.

For example, a trader will pay an Uttar Pradesh or a Bihar farmer less than Rs 1,200 a quintal for paddy. He would then bring it to Punjab and sell it off to the agencies at the MSP of Rs 1,888 to pocket the gains after sharing it with officials.

Punjab Food and Supplies Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu has alleged to have been a part in this but he has denied saying his name has been dragged wrongly.

Ashu has suspended the district manager and said steps have been initiated to dismiss the official.


More embarrassingly for Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s government in the state, the PUNSUP district manager, while negotiating the deal, has said the amount that the trader will give as his "cut" is shared with the minister for “organising the visit of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi” on 4 October.

Rahul Gandhi, former Congress president, had visited Punjab during 4-6 October to campaign against the agricultural reforms ushered in by the Narendra Modi government at the Centre by allowing farmers to sell to buyers of their choice, enter contract farming and removing the cap on the stock limit of essential commodities.

The other issue that has come to fore from this revelation is that going by data, procurement of paddy during 2019-20 exceeded its production.

In the first place, this is worrisome. Farmers don’t bring their entire production, especially wheat or rice, to the market. They hold back for their own consumption and also for re-sowing.

According to agricultural experts, this could be to the tune of 30 per cent of what they totally produce.

According to the Food Corporation of India, nearly 18 million tonnes (mt) of paddy was grown last year. Going by the Punjab Agriculture Department, production was around 16 mt.

The excess 2 mt procurement is a clear indicator of faultlines in the system.


If this pinpoints at the shortcomings of the growers not getting the required freedom to sell their produce, the Madras High Court ruling is another pointer of corruption prevailing in the procurement system.

Though the Centre procures foodgrains at MSP, it is actually helped by state agencies in getting the produce from Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) mandis.

The Madras High Court order came after a raid by DVAC led to the recovery of Rs 90,000 from a procurement centre at Mayiladuthurai in Nagapattinam district. The money recovered is reported to have been paid by farmers as a bribe to the procurement staff to buy the paddy they had brought to the procurement centre.

There is also a reverse process of the MSP system being misused.

An oil milling industry official told Swarajya how some officials in states such as Gujarat procure groundnut at MSP and then sell them at a lower price terming them as trash or inferior produce.

This brings to fore the involvement of a racket or cartel in the procurement system. Reports say that some Delhi-based traders are involved in this as they control Bihar and Uttar Pradesh markets.

This probably explains why Congress and other opposition parties have raised the pitch against the agricultural reforms.


Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has been leading the opposition against these reforms in a vehement manner and going by the revelations of the negotiations between the trader and PUNSUP official, there seems to be some hidden agenda.

Not just that, the revelations are pointers that politicians and their parties would be badly affected by the agricultural reforms since they are aimed at making life better for the farmer.


Probably, these developments are the tip of the iceberg.

MSP system under question after official-trader nexus comes to light in Punjab •22 Oct 2020








The Tribune

#PaddyTruckSeizure #

Read story here: https://tinyurl.com/yyet3jas

The release of purported chat between a district manager of the PUNSUP and a trader regarding allowing the sale of paddy procured at lower rates from outside Punjab to procurement agencies at the higher Minimum Support Price (MSP) has exposed the misuse of the MSP system in the state by some unscrupulous dealers to make quick profits.

Some traders in the state are buying paddy at Rs 1,100- Rs 1,200 per quintal from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. They then transport it to Punjab, and after tying up with officials in mandis, procurement agencies and commission agents, fake records are made to show the paddy was procured from local farmers. The produce is then procured at the MSP, which is Rs 1,888 this year.


The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising five eminent persons as trustees.

the congis and their cohorts pioneered the APMC mandi system tens of decades ago.

it was perfected by some in punjab and MAH but ran quite efficiently in many states where many hereditary looters continue to be in power

The main problem with govt involvement is that citizens are directly affected and no one will ever get prosecuted. Competition driven non govt actors would actively work to reduce stealing to improve their bottom line.

no law is ever made in India without some loopholes which industrious and sold out babooze would have cleverly built in.

just need to wait a while and all will be revealed.

Competition driven non govt actors are far more interested in off book sales and the complete avoidance of taxes. :mrgreen:

nothing will improve their bottom line more than all cash sales, all goods carry, no records and nil taxes

#ABPOpinionPoll - NDA set to return to power in Bihar

JDU+ projected to win seats between 135-159
RJD+ likely to get 77-98
LJP - 1-5 seats
Others 4-8

What will be interesting to watch the wining split between BJP and JDU and that will determine the future of the coalition. IF RJD+ comes close to 100, it will open up the field for Nitishwa to play games.

Would JDU do a Sena on BJP to keep from getting devoured by BJP?

In Bihar RJD is no NCP and Nitesh Kumar is no Uddhav Thackeray. If RJD gets close to 90+ seats on their own, even if Niteshwa backstabs BJP (again), there is no ways RJD will play second fiddle. Such a setup worked in MH because both NCP and INC know Shiv Sena and thackerays are absolute political novices and clowns, the entire MH mismanagement is on SS which is fast depleting whatever political goodwill Balasaheb had accumulated over the decades, and INC and NCP get to enjoy the cream without ever having to step into the line of fire. On the other hand RJD and Nitesh's survival is based on projecting they are in absolute,total control, so neither would like to play bride's maid for long.

It's probably Nitesh last election foray. Both parties, BJP & RJD can happily first offer Nitesh the CM seat, as by next election 2025 or even mid-term, they shall become dominate party over JDU, and can fight CM post on their own candidate. He is spoiled for choices.

And Hindus have this let bygones be bygones. Like many have accepted or contented with the Mughal invasions. So RJD's bad history, is not much relevant in this elections much like 2015.

NM is not the forgiving kind which is good for keeping away such strictly regional clowns. Niteshwa was not even given the Railway ministry by the MAD and has been politically corralled and completely bottled up in bihar and even prashant kishor has left him.

It was LKA and gang who stoked the foolish dreams of nitishwa who had really high hopes of being backed by them as the PM candidate. Godra was just a cynical excuse to try and cut NM out of the race and once NM was out of their way, nitishwa would have been politically sidelined and buried.

nitishwa showed both his dirty dal badal upbringing as well as his naked ambition to become PM hoping to ride into office on other's coat tails like devegowda managed to do.

at that time there was some dirty work at the crossroads kind of effort with in the BJP by the D4 to side line Modi.

Meet Sachin Vaze, the ‘encounter specialist’ cop leading the investigation against Arnab Goswami who was once suspended for custodial murder
https://www.opindia.com/2020/10/encount ... -republic/
...
It is pertinent to note that API Vaze is the same police officer who was facing murder charges in a 2003 custodial death case and was reinstated by Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh earlier in June this year. Vaze, popularly known as ‘Encounter Specialist’, was suspended from the police force about 16 years ago and his suspension was revoked by a committee headed by Param Bir Singh.
...
Facing custodial death charges, Vaze had been suspended on March 3, 2004. He resigned three years later, in November 2007 after his repeated requests for reinstatement were rejected by the government. After resigning from the police force, Vaze had joined the Shiv Sena party, along with another police officer Pradeep Sharma, who was also a part of the ‘encounter squad’ with Sachin Vaze. Sharma had also reportedly joined Shiv Sena and had unsuccessfully contested the state Assembly elections in 2019 on the Shiv Sena ticket from Nallasopara.
....
After Param Bir Singh reinstated Sachin Vaze in the Mumbai Police in June this year, Khwaja Yunus’s mother Asiya Begum had reportedly filed contempt pleas in the Bombay High Court against Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh and the then additional director general of police (current principal secretary (special) home department) Amitabh Gupta. She accused Param Bir Singh and Gupta of reinstating the police officer guilty of killing her son while in custody.

In India, politicians have a really really long shelf life, not to mention looking at Devegowda, Lalu, Mulayam, Sharad Pawar etc. these guys seem to live on forever and ever. Nitesh at the age of 69 is still "young" and may have another 15 years atleast before he takes it easy and goes into irrelevance. RJD will not risk giving Nitesh the CM seat because (a) Thejaswi knows with the once in a lifetime pandemic and its economic destruction, this is his best shot at becoming the CM and (b) RJD looks at this election as a fight for its political survival, another 3 to 5 years on the sidelines and there is no guarantee they'll be in this strong a position next time.

If i were Nitesh i'd stick with BJP, a JDU-RJD coalition has a huge risk of either one of them going into political irrelevance. BJP on the other hand will willingly play the wingman to Nitesh unless it wins significantly more seats than JDU, then it is anyone's guess what happens next.

Darshanji - Sachin Vaze is from the same team as Daya Nayak, Pradeep Sharma, late Hemant Karkare etc. All of them have had their share of controversies, known mafia connections, allegations of massive corruption and suspension from the force. It looks like Sharad Pawar and INC are determined to put Arnab out of business. I wonder what stops Arnab from shifting his studio to GJ or UP, but then again what if BJP loses power in those states in future and congress uses the MH template to go after him again ? Unless BJP wakes up and begins paying Param Bir and his masters in the same coin, the harassment of Republic TV and even pro-nationalist on the social media will go on in MH and WB.

Last time, in 2015, JDU/Nitish did form a govt. with RJD, Cong(I). IIRC, it was pre-poll alliance, to boot. Remember how that went? The MGB ran for 2 years before Nitish bailed out and formed the govt. with BJP. If Nitish ditches the BJP after the polls, why will this time be any different? After that experience, I think Nitish/JDU wizened up for the sake of Bihar. Or, so I hope.

Moral bankruptcy of the Left in the West.

After radical Islamists kill freethinkers, behead a school teacher, it {FP} spins the yarn about the "embattled Muslim minority" and how Macron is pandering to the "right wing." Does even mention Islamist murders.

NM is absolutely not the forgiving kind. Anyone who has wronged/betrayed/harassed him in past is getting paid in the same coin. I wonder what he has in mind for people like Mamta, Pawar, Uddhav, P. Vijayan etc. These people won't realise until it's too late that NM will destroy them one at a time. Greed of power sometimes makes people lose their reasoning skills and see the writing on the wall. So basically they are fighting a lost battle.

And one observation which I think is very relevant. Except Naveen Patnaik every second generation of politicians has failed. So BJP just has to wait it out before these regional parties implode. And then they can gobble it up and make their grip on power stronger, denying Congis any shot at getting back.
So even if Tejaswi gets power, I am pretty certain he will fail like Akhilesh.

Which brings to my next question. Has anyone analysed how Naveen Patnaik kept winning for the last 21 years? I mean he doesn't speak the language, doesn't care much about administration, but somehow ends up outsmarting everyone. Especially rivals. And that's a big achievement considering he is a second generation politician. And he also doesn't entertain grand visions of becoming PM like every other of these regional clowns. And he doesn't needlessly antagonise anybody.

The virtue signaling IAS afsar above wouldn't dare to ban on a single loudspeaker in a mosque but thinks it is "cool" to desecrate centuries old aghama and paddhathis in a temple all in the name of "smashing the parochial tradition" (stupid word used in the context of Hindu temples). We can be eternally thankful to Banditji for maintaining these obsolete vestiges of the former British empire, and we continue to pay for his follies everyday .

This is a very cryptic message from NSA. This can point even to Nepal and Bhutan in addition to TSP and China.

In Maharashtra, there was a reason (however unjustified) for Shiv Sena to backstab BJP - i.e the CM post. In Bihar, such a reason doesn't exist. Why would Nitish ally with RJD?

I think the chances of Nitish pulling an Uddhav is slim

Not so straightforward I think.
Sena moved away from BJP in Maha because their political aim was the kursi and not ideolology. to preserve their political capital, they have to show BJP is bad for Maha else be prepared to be slowly merged into BJP (since BJP's dharmic credentials are gaining by the day compared to Sena)

Same with Nitish - if he continues with BJP then sooner or later the BJP ship will over take Nitish and engulf him. his only chance of preserving his political capital is to switch sides and not let BJP piggy back on his political capital and overtake him.

The way for BJP - and its strongest suite - is to keep to the ideology despite loss of power. this has been the congress' downfall. Most dynastic parties give anything to keep their family in power - ideology be damned.

the only ideology nitishwa has is power and he will always go where that is available to him

per TV reports, the BJP seems to have removed nitishwa's face from all its election posters.

The picture cannot be clearer than that, no :mrgreen:

Luviena Lodh is not Mahesh Bhatt's daughter-in-law, she is the ex-wife of his nephew Sumit Sabrahwal.

In the Ladakh development council elections BJP bags 15 out of 26 seats, INC gets the other 9. Ladakh's long term demand to be separated from J&K was fulfilled by BJP and now the infra development and building new administration offices is progressing rapidly, so got to wonder what gripe do people have in those 9 councils that they thought INC was better despite the later keeping Ladakh in dark ages for decades ?

The public lynching of democracy, freedom of press, freedom of expression continues in Maharashtra, now the Mumbai Police has asked every Republic TV employee from all over India to present themselves before the Mumbai Police within the next 24 hrs. Arnab's lawyers have moved the Supreme Court and instead of pulling up MH govt and Mumbai Police for their murder of constitution, hizzonar Justice Shri Bobdeji (who also happens to be from MH) said he cannot stand Arnab's style of journalism, and said Republic TV should not mess with "peace and harmony in the society". I guess "my lords" turn into Gandhiji's monkeys when NDTV, India Today, The Hindu, CNN IBN, Indian Express etc are in front of them but worry about "peace & harmony" only when it is Republic or Sudharshan TV.

For the life of me i cannot understand why such hapless and under-achieving ministers like Javadekar or Ravishankar Prasad are in the cabinet, no one outside Delhi knows them, they have 0 vote pulling ability and they have no strategy or plan protect the budding nationalist ecosystem in its infancy that Modi & Shah are trying to build . Whats happening to Arnab and Republic is to make an example for future "wannabe nationalist" journalists so they dare never speak or write against the Congress or the left-islamo-BIF network.

BJP - 15
INC - 9
IND - 2

I don't know if the 2 independents are supporting INC, even if they do i don't think it matters as BJP has enough seats to take control of the council.

This particular individual is bullying a religious group. She has no business imposing her religious views on anyone.


District Collectors (IAS)
@DCsofIndia
Salute to young #IAS officer #RitikaJindal for breaking age old parochial tradition by performing 'havan' at Shalooni temple, Solan HP. She also taught lessons of equality to priests, others. This gutsy officer shows us true spirit of #Dussehra.

salute!! really :mrgreen:

what gives this ignorant and arrogant IAS ahole the right to interfere in Hindu rituals, after over ruling the priest

would she dare to "lead" the namaz in any of the mosques in her area of responsibility

and since when have the IAS themselves taken up the mantle of "reforming" and "civilizing" the heathen natives.

only her dangly muslim type of earrings/pendants are evident.

the foolish Hindus are themselves to blame for this state of affairs.
