editorial : Honor  of  Indian Parliament for sale by few members

It is a shame that years ago four members of parliament were caught red
handed on charges of human trafficking that too misusing their
official passports. We have seen in the past various crimes by M.Ps
-   questions for money , kickbacks , Release of money under MPLAD Scheme  ,  etc.  In the past we have seen vulgar behaviour of some members in the house , state legislature , remember vulgar acts of Mr.Bora Babu Singh &  vulgar acts by some MLAs against  Ms.Jayalalitha .Now , it is
“Cash for Vote” in trust vote & nuclear cap bill . We ordinary citizens have utmost respect for all constitutional bodies. Disrespect  , contempt to constitutional bodies is being shown by some of the constitutional functionaries themselves , they are also making contempt of citizens of India.
this present sorry state
of affairs is due to the caste consciousness of the electorate. The
public instead of seeing the honesty , integrity of electoral
candidates looks just at his caste , in this trend they elect persons
who belongs to their caste even though he is dishonest , untrustworthy
& a criminal . Now , the number of criminals , density of criminals
( who are masterminds in evading conviction ) is more in elected
houses of people's representatives - parliament , state assemblies ,
panchayaths , corporations , etc than in the  jails , outside public
society . HRW is ready to prove this subject to conditions , in larger
public interest. Our people's representatives must learn classroom
discipline , punctuality of attendance , home work , from little kids
of primary school.
We have won the independence by the hard way , by the innumerable
sacrifices made by great martyrs like mahatma Gandhi , Nehru , bhagath
singh , etc. The criminals who have occupied constitutional positions
don't have any right to squander that hard won independence of
Indians. The disgrace , contempt to august house of people's
representatives is brought upon itself by the corrupt people's
representatives themselves.
We at HRW , have highest regards for the institution of parliament ,
this is an appeal to the honest few in the parliament to bring to book
their corrupt colleagues & to uphold the dignity of the house .  JAI

Your's sincerely,

QUESTIONS FOR MONEY - PARLIAMENTARY ACTS / LEGISLATIONS FOR ???? - improper functioning of democracy in india

The vohra committee report has proved the criminalisation of politics
in india. There are many number of criminals in the parliament & state
legislatures. Some of those criminals are cabinet ministers as well as
members of vital parliamentary committees. Thereby, they are in a
position to manipulate , enact laws favouring , benefitting the
criminals their cronies.
Just see how the GOI gave export incentive of Rs.1800 crore to
reliance petroleum although it didn't even export a barrel. Reliance
infocom & tata teleservices were CDMA mobile service providers & have
paid license fee of few crores only equal to landline fees without any
competitive bidding . They were supposed to provide mobile service to
operate like fixed phones within a radius of 40k.m. however they were
providing service like mobile service from one state to another like
GSM mobile service providers. By this act of RIC & TTSL , the GSM
providers who have paid thousands of license fee in competitive
bidding were economically hurt , the dispute went to court. The court
was on the verge of pronouncing it's verdict awarding damages worth
Rs.18000 crore to GSM players & Rs. 3000 crore of license fees with
penalty to GOI. The government announced a unified telecom license
regime with retrospective effect. Thereby, the GOI lost thousands of
crores of rupees & the share holders of GSM players lost thousands of
crores. Onceagain the RIC was charged by PSU bsnl THAT RELIANCE IS
This time too, GOI bailed it out. during the dispute between ambani
brothers the younger ambani mr. Anil ambani director of reliance
himself has stated that for the favours received from the GOI , the
company gifted some shares to then IT &
COMMUNICATIONS MINISTER mr.Pramod mahajan. Various indian &
multinational companies are lootingindian exchequer to the tune of
thousands of crores of rupees , through lobbying / bribing.

In india, indirect democracy is the form of governance. In this form,
people's representatives are bound to raise the questions , issues
concerning their constituents on their behalf , on the floor of the
house. However the sad part in india even after 58 years of democracy
, is the lobbying is at it's peak. The lobbying is a gentleman's white
collared crook's way of forming favour seeker's group , creating a
corpus to pay lumpsum bribe & influencing decision making. The
people's representatives are bound to represent their people first ,
then their party & party think tanks. India has come to this sorry
state of affairs , widespread corruption , huge black economy &
rampant poverty, all due to inefficient legislations & enforcements.
These think tanks & IAS lobby, consider themselves as most super
brains on earth & gives out suggestions . the present state of affairs
is a barometer of their brilliance. These think tanks & IAS lobby are
the hand maidens of lobbyists / bribers.

When everybody else does the mistake , wrong doing  , indulges in corruption , judiciary alone must be pure like  virgin  to punish & guide the wrong doers. Now , the apex court of the land  & the highest judicial officer of the land , the conscience keeper  , protector of rights , Constitutional guardian of  the land – The Honourable Chief Justice of India  himself Has been found guilty .  SHAME SHAME.

Nowadays , we  are seeing criminalization of  politics , judiciary & police. The rowdy elements have become MLAs & MPs & frequestly indulge in fisticuffs , vulgar abuses  in the precincts of the house itself  . These rowdy elements take money for asking questions in the parliament , to vote for bills & for a price pass legislations  favouring lobbies of rich crooks. The police frame , torture  innocents & let out rich crooks for a price . For a price police destroy evidences , records  and create fake records , evidences. Finally there are judges  who issue arrest warrants , give bail , give acquittal  & pass favourable judgements   ALL FOR A PRICE . SHAME SHAME . These corrupt  judges , police , MPs , MLAs  each take  salary & perks far exceeding lakhs per annum , but serve rich crooks instead of   Indian Public. These corrupt are parasites & deadlier , state enemies  than naxalites , terrorists. Democracy in our country , our hard won  national independence is  endangered by these parasites , corrupt judges , police & people’s representatives only. These  parasites  themselves are responsible for origin & growth of  naxalism / terrorism in india .
These corrupt  parasites will feel  , understand the pain only when they also suffer in the same manner. Let us pray to almighty – In  whose  Court of justice  MATCH FIXING is not there & every body is equal , let us pray to that god to give these corrupt parasites ghastly deaths nothing less nothing more.

A B C D of Democracy – A Lesson for all people’s representatives

People are the kings , self rulers in a democracy . Peoples representatives must just represent the wishes ,  aspirations of people. When  people in Jaitapur , Maharashtra state of India  are totally against a nuke plant in their area  and they don’t want it , still the authorities are forcing this project over their head.
Since 63 years of independence , In India the learned IAS babus & Netas are forcing their agendas , SEZs , Projects over the people for their own selfish gains , against the wishes of people. This is not DEMOCRACY.
In india, indirect democracy is the form of governance. In this
form, people's representatives are bound to raise the questions ,
issues concerning their constituents on their behalf , on the floor of
the house. However the sad part in india even after  63  years of
democracy , is the lobbying is at it's peak. The lobbying is a
gentleman's white collared crook's way of forming favour seeker's
group , creating a corpus to pay lumpsum bribe & influencing decision
The people's representatives are bound to represent their people
first , then their party & party think tanks. India has come to this
sorry state of affairs , widespread corruption , huge black economy &
rampant poverty, all due to inefficient legislations & enforcements.
These think tanks & IAS lobby, consider themselves as most super
brains on earth & gives out suggestions . the present state of affairs
is a barometer of their brilliance. These think tanks & IAS lobby are
the hand maidens of lobbyists / bribers.

Now consider the following example :
Mr.raj gandhi is a member of parliament from mandya constituency in
karnataka state. He is a MBA graduate & member of ruling indian
progressive party. The multinational giant M/S GREY HOUND CORPORATION
wants to enter into paper manufacturing business in india. It's sight
falls on the public sector paper giant mandya national paper mills (
MNPM) in mandya district of karnataka. The MNC effectively lobbies
with the government. The ruling party think tank & the cabinet
advisory group recommends to the government to make strategic
disinvestment in the PSU M/S MNPM. They bring out graph with full
power point presentation stating that it is good for the company as
well as the government. The lobbyists follows it up with media reports
on the positive aspect of strategic disinvestment. A favourable
impression is created in the minds of literate public. The cabinet
committee okays it.

The " strategic dis investment issue " comes before the parliament
for legislation / approval. The ruling party issues a party whip to
it's members to vote in favour of dis investment. However M.P mr.raj
gandhi who is an MBA in his own wisdom also favours the dis
investment. However ,most importantly the constituents – people in
mandya parliamentary constituency through protest marches , mass post
card campaigns lakhs in numbers expresses their disagreement with the
dis investment & urges their MP mr.gandhi to vote against the
disinvestment legislation.

On the D-day in parliament , mr. Raj gandhi as per his party whip &
his own wisdom votes in favour of strategic disinvestment legislation,
much against the wishes of his people , constituents & mis represents
them in parliament. the democracy has failed here. in This way
democracy is being derailed since 62 years in india.

In democracy, party whip , MP or MLA's own wisdom / brilliance,
think tank & IAS lobby recommendations are all secondary , the
constituent's of his constituency , people's wishes aspirations are
of primary importance & supreme. What people need is a honest
representative, who simply delivers the people's aspirations on the
floor of the house back & forth , without superimposing it with his
own ideas & party ideas. For true democracy , the people's
representatives must be true postmans.

Towards this end , the people must be educated about their
democratic rights & responsibilities. This is an appeal to the honest
few in the parliament & state legislatures to weed out their corrupt
colleagues , lobbyists, to uphold the dignity of the house & to
install democracy in it's true form.


MYSORE - 570017.

Honourable DG & IG of Police ,
State Police H.Q ,

Honourable Circle Inspector of Police,
Vijayanagar Police Station,

Honourable Sir,
   Subject : Violation of FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS by
Honourable Chief Jusice of India &  H.E.Honourable President of India
& other public servants
                   Karnataka Police are NOT registering & acting on
my  complaint  to them dated  04.07.2009

A  person committing a criminal offense is a CRIMINAL. The Person  who
aids a criminal in his criminal act , in hiding the criminal act , in
destroying the evidences  of criminal act  is also  a CRIMINAL. The
person whose duty is to prevent criminal acts from  happening , who
intentionally fails in his preventive duties  and  thereby
facilitating  the criminal in committing crime is also a CRIMINAL.
Information  given by government  authorities are EVIDENCES , denial
of information  amounts to hiding  of evidence ,  improper , half
truth information given  amounts to MANIPULATION & DESTRUCTION OF
EVIDENCES. In this way many of our public servants including judges &
police themselves are criminals , but are not prosecuted by the
authorities , why ?
Due to delay in giving appropriate  information , many crimes have
taken place which could have been prevented. As the delay in taking
action , giving information / evidence is on the part of government
authorities , the issue of TIME BARRED FOR ADMISSABILITY doesn’t
At the outset , we express  our whole hearted respects to the honest
few  public servants in public service including judiciary. However,
the corrupt in public service don’t deserve  respect as individuals –
as they are  parasites in our legal system. Still we respect the
chairs they occupy but not the corrupt individuals.

All the following articles / issues , whole articles published in the
weblinks mentioned below forms part of this appeal. The term “JUDGE”
mentioned throught includes all public servants  discharging  judicial
functions right from taluk magistrates , quasi-judicial officers to
Chief Justice of India.

Indian Legal / Judicial System is manipulated at various stages & is
for sale. It is a SHAME. The persons who raise  their voice seeking
justice  are silenced in many ways. The criminal nexus has already
attempted to silence me in many ways . If anything untoward happens to
me or to my family members , my dependents , Honourable Chief Justice
of India together with jurisdictional police officer will be
responsible  for it.

The Vijayanagar police in mysore stated that  they don’t have legal
jurisdiction to book the criminals I have mentioned in the complaint &
by taking a statement from me to that effect  closed the case
temporarily on  11.09.2010  after sitting over the complaint  for
years together. Is it not the  duty of  DG&IGP to seek the permission
from home ministry to legally prosecute the alleged criminal VVIPs ?
Why he was silent ? Ofcourse the lower rung police officers
practically don’t have power to prosecute high & mighty ?

Hereby , I do request the  DG & IG OF Police , Government of Karnataka
to seek the legal sanction from union home ministry & Karnataka state
home ministry , for the prosecution of  below mentioned criminal VVIPs
& to reopen my complaint here with.

In India , as per constitution of india all citizens are equal , have
right to equal oppurtunity & equitable justice irrespective of caste ,
creed , religion , etc. the constitution has guaranteed these to every
Indian citizen by way of CONSTITUTIONAL FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS. Also ,
every humanbeing on earth has got HUMAN RIGHTS, by virtue of his / her
forgotten this & are acting as lords , autocrats - unquestionable
appointed to serve the public, public are the kings of democracy ,
they are the taxpayers & paymasters of this very same public servants.
In India , corruption has spread it’s tentacles far & wide , it has
not even spared the judiciary. The last resort of commonman for
seeking justice is judiciary , even there corruption has spread.In
present day India , if one is rich , he can committ any type of crime
& get away clean from courts of law. there are corrupt police
officials who modify FIR , suppress evidences ,manipulate evidences ,
takes up different line of investigation ,  fix innocents , coughs-up
false confessions from innocents by 3rd degree torture , file B report
closing the case , decides not to appeal in higher court of law ,
etc , ALL FOR A PRICE. Just see the list of millionnaire police
officials who are caught by karnataka lokayukta.
Next step , the prosecutor & defense advocate strikes a deal ,
manipulates evidences , manipulates way of presentation of case & way
of argument favouring the rich crooks for a price , as observed in
high profile BMW case involving public prosecutor IU KHAN & defense
counsel RK ANAND. In this way , if corrupt police & advocates ,
together manipulate the due process of law , the presiding judge is
left high & dry eventhough the judge is honest, he is left helpless.
to add to this , when the judge himself is corrupt , people’s last
hope , democracy is dead. Nowadays we are hearing too many reports of
irregularities in judiciary.
our publication has filed many appeals as PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION
before hon’ble supreme court of India but the vested interests there
The issues raised by us for sample :
1. sale of fake medicines & adulterated food products , beverages ,
colas affecting the health of millions of Indians & public of
importing nations who are importing the same dangerous products from
india .
2. demolition , eviction of houses , lands belonging to poor dalits ,
tribals , backward castes by government authorities whereas
regularising  illegal land encroachments , illegal buildings by high &
mighty people in total disregard to law. in some cases government has
even made contempt of court , by defying court orders & enacting
special laws all to favour rich land grabbers.
3. take the cases corporate frauds, violation of labour laws ,
pollution board laws , tax laws , etc by companies.
4. The reports in media about certain highly placed public servants
leaking india’s defense secrets to foreign countries & some
politicians , film stars attending parties hosted by anti nationals
DAWOOD IBRAHIM & underworld dons in gulf countries & elsewhere. these
type of appeals are for public good , national security , as public
are affected by them. still supreme court of india is not considering
our repeated PIL Appeals.the courts have the authority to consider
even a post card , e-mail as a PIL Appeal , the courts even have the
right to initiate suo-motto action for public good , inspite of
absence of any appeals / complaints. over & above this at the time of
my very first appeal my income was very low & i was a retrenched
factory employee who was eligible for free legal aid, even free legal
aid was not given to me. Now , even to my repeated RTI Appeals  the
Honourable chief justice of India & H.E.Honourable President of India
are not giving the requested information . these action of CJI &
PRESIDENT OF INDIA is aiding high & mighty criminals , anti
nationals , amounts to suppression of information , truth ,
evidences , which is a cognizable offence.

ACCUSED Chief Justice of India

INDIA -  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,
,  ,
are you ready to catch tax thieves ?  ,  ,
reliance industry where is accountability ?  ,  ,
crimes at infosys campus  ,  ,
crimes by B.D.A against a poor woman  ,  ,
crimes of land mafia in India  ,   ,
currency thefts in RBI Press  ,  ,
killer colas & killer medicines of India  ,  ,

We do have highest respect for all constitutional bodies , public
servants , but it is an appeal to the honest few in public service ,to
bring to book their corrupt colleagues.The Honourable Chief Justice of
India & H.E.Honourable President of India have violated their oaths of
office , failed in their constitutional duties , suppressed material
truths / informations & thereby repeatedly violated my
Constitutionally guaranteed FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS &
Obstructing me from performing constitutionally prescribed FUNDAMENTAL

Starting today, March 15, The Hindu offers its readers a series of unprecedented insights into India's foreign policy and domestic affairs, diplomatic, political, economic, social, cultural, and intellectual – encountered, observed, tracked, interpreted, commented upon, appreciated, and pilloried by U.S. diplomats cabling the State Department in Washington D.C.
The range of subjects, issues, and persons covered by the India Cables is extraordinary. While the trained diplomat's eye is almost always on the ball – the developing Indo-U.S. strategic relationship and everything that helps or hinders it – the range includes India's relations with its neighbours, with Russia, the European Union, East Asia, Israel, Palestine, Iran, and the rest of West Asia, Africa, Cuba, the United Nations. It covers issues and actions relating to defence cooperation, nuclear policy, arms control, terrorism, intelligence sharing, export control, human rights, Indian bureaucracy, environment, AfPak, and much more. There is a special focus on 26/11, Kashmir, India's policy towards and dealings with Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Myanmar, and where the Indian polity is headed.
Politicians of all shades, diplomats and other officials, sleuths, businessmen, journalists, busybodies, bigwigs and smallwigs figure in the WikiLeaks India Cache – which comprises 5,100 U.S. Embassy and consulate cables relevant to India (not all of them originating in India) and aggregates an astonishing six million words.
These American diplomats have been trained to listen, probe and prod, massage egos, milk sources, report, and write (supplying accessible and, at times, witty and elegant headings and sub-headings) to inform, analyse, and amuse – as though they were full-time journalists. Many of them work like wire service beavers: long lunches, yes, but very often, same day reports of important meetings. Few things escape their notice. Most of the time, they see Indian men, women, and matters through the reflected mirror of U.S. strategic interests and policy.
The India Cables have been accessed by The Hindu through an arrangement with WikiLeaks that involves no financial transaction and no financial obligations on either side. As with the larger ‘Cablegate' cache to which these cables belong, they are classified into six categories: confidential, confidential/noforn (confidential, no foreigners), secret, secret/noforn, unclassified, and unclassified/for official use only.
Our contacts with WikiLeaks were initiated in the second week of December 2010. It was a period when Cablegate had captured the attention and imagination of a news-hungry world.
On November 28, 2010, five major western newspapers (The Guardian, The New York Times, Der Spiegel, Le Monde, and El Pais) and WikiLeaks made a huge splash by publishing a selection from the cables that provided readers worldwide with what WikiLeaks has described as “an unprecedented insight into U.S. government foreign activities.” These newspapers had put the cables through a painstaking and painfully slow process of ‘redaction,' applying varying criteria according to their lights. They drew on the cables to publish dozens of stories, ranging from the sensational through the instructive to the amusing; the newspapers' journalists provided context, background, analysis, interpretation, and comment.
But by now WikiLeaks was under siege. An organisation committed to openness, transparency, and justice and its charismatic Editor-in-Chief, Julian Assange, had come under fierce, concerted attack orchestrated by the United States. The attack dogs were after Mr. Assange's blood and the organisation had to use the utmost ingenuity to continue to function.
That it was able to do so and even spread its wings in a matter of weeks speaks to the tremendous vitality and technological power of “this new form of indestructible publishing” (to borrow Guardian Editor Alan Rusbridger's phrase) and the solidarity and practical support this mission, which Mr. Assange considers an integral part of journalism, has been able to inspire among thousands of people round the world.
The WikiLeaks database made available to the five newspapers comprised 251,187 cables from 280 U.S. embassies and consulates in 180 countries. The total word length of the cables was estimated to be 300 million. From the start of our interactions with WikiLeaks, The Hindu had its eye on the India Cables, reported to number in the thousands, of which only 40 have been published ( /60_0.html).
Hopes of getting our hands on the entire India Cache rose in the second half of December when Julian Assange spoke, in a newspaper interview, of “the incredible potential of the Indian media” in a context of “a lot of corruption” (waiting to be exposed), a rising middle class, and growing access to the internet – and specifically mentioned and praised The Hindu.
To cut the story short, our active contacts with WikiLeaks resumed in mid-February 2011. A breakthrough was achieved without any fuss, resulting in a detailed understanding on the terms and modus of publication, including redacting (where, and only where, necessary) and compliance with a security protocol for protecting and handling the sensitive material – and we had the whole cache of the India Cables in our hands in early March.
Unlike the experience of the five western newspapers, which were involved in a prolonged and complex collaborative venture even while making independent publication choices (described in two books published by The Guardian and The New York Times), The Hindu's receipt, processing, and publication of the cables is a standalone arrangement with WikiLeaks, which, as in the case of the five newspapers, has no say in the content of stories we publish based on the cables.
We quickly assembled a team of experienced journalists – writers, including foreign correspondents, and editors – as well as digital information and data specialists for the India Cables publication project, to which we gave no particular name.
The team worked long hours in a secured office space, practically without a day's break, sifting through the data, categorising, segmenting, and speed-reading the cables, searching with keywords, redacting if necessary, making a large first selection of what seemed most relevant and interesting, and re-reading the cables to write dozens of stories, formatting and uploading the cables online for global reach. Quiet, controlled excitement reigned for the most part within the confined environment, even when fatigue set in and nerves were frayed. It is still work in progress.

Indian government tried to buy votes, says WikiLeaks cable

India's increasingly shaky coalition government is facing a fresh crisis following the release of an American diplomatic cable obtained by WikiLeaks which appears to reveal a government bid to buy support in parliament before a vote in 2008.
Published in the Hindu newspaper, the cable claimed that an official from the ruling Congress party had told a US diplomat stationed in Delhi that a fund of between 500m and 600m rupees (between £7m and £8.2m) existed to pay parliamentarians to ensure the survival of the government.
India's opposition parties demanded the resignation of the prime minister Manmohan Singh, who has been under fire in recent months following a series of corruption cases. The Indian media has closely followed investigations into the scandals, which include an alleged telecoms scam estimated to have cost the state nearly £25m.
The former telecoms minister, from a coalition partner of Congress, is currently in detention. Other government figures alleged to have acted corruptly include senior sports administrators involved in last year's Delhi Commonwealth Games.
The WikiLeaks report said an aide to a senior Congress politician had shown the American diplomat two chests of cash and said four lawmakers of a regional party had been paid 100m rupees each for their support. "Money was not an issue at all ... the crucial thing was to ensure that those who took the money would vote for the government," the aide was reported to have said.
A second official allegedly told the diplomat that formerly a minister "could only offer small planes as bribes" but "now he can pay for votes with jets".
Votes at all level of politics in India are routinely exchanged for cash or favours. Allegations that money changed hands before the vote in 2008 – which came at the height of acrimonious debates over a controversial civil nuclear deal with the US – have been made before.
Narasimhan Ram, editor of the Hindu, said the newspaper had gained access to the cables after long talks with WikiLeaks, which has been releasing portions of 250,000 leaked state department cables through selected newspapers since late last year.
In December, the Guardian published a series of reports based on more than 5,000 cables sent by the US embassy in Delhi to Washington.
One revealed that Rahul Gandhi, son of Congress party president Sonia Gandhi – who is widely seen as her political heir – had told the American ambassador that violent Hindu radicalism in India posed a potentially greater threat to the country than Islamist extremism.
A second cable revealed a briefing by the Red Cross describing systematic torture in Indian detention centres in Kashmir.
Ram said his newspaper would publish more revelations in coming days. "Can there be any doubt that there is something deeply rotten in our democracy? You are talking about a rising India ... There are a lot of good things happening but at the heart of it is something rotten," he said.
Sushma Swaraj, a leader of the Bharatiya Janata party, said Singh's government had lost its legitimacy. "This is a hammer blow that it cannot recover from," she said in parliament. "It has lost all moral responsibility to govern." The speaker of the house was forced to suspend proceedings for the day. A series of political protests over corruption has blocked parliamentary business in India for months.
The current government, in its second term, has been unable to pass much-needed economic reforms as a result.
Satish Sharma, the senior Congress politician at the centre of the new scandal, told reporters the claims were "baseless".
The government narrowly won a vote of confidence in 2008 after Communists withdrew support in anger at a landmark civil nuclear co-operation deal between India and the US. The four lawmakers whom the report alleged to have been paid bribes by the Congress official eventually voted against the government.
