At Rythu Vedika, KCR asks farmers to oppose Modi’s policies with a clenched fist  


Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday used the Rythu Vedika platform to tear into the central government’s farm policy urging the farmers of the state to fiercely oppose the farm bills introduced by the Modi government.

He said the Telangana government will strongly oppose farm bills as they will adversely impact the farmers, cause heavy losses to the agriculture sector. “The bills will only help traders and corporate and not farmers,” he said.  

KCR accused the Central government of treating states like ‘beggars’ and trying to force the farm bills on states. He also tore into the Modi government on the power sector reforms of the union government calling them “draconian.” He said the power sector will go into the hands of the central government and put a huge burden on the states.

On subsidies to the farmers, KCR said advanced economies offer subsidies to the farm sector. “Even if the state government wants to give subsidies to the farmers, the central government puts a roadblock. The central government is doing great injustice to the farmers across the country,” he said. He called upon the farmers of the state to agitate against the farm policies of the central government with a clenched fist.

Inaugurating the first Rythu Vedika at Kodakandla village in Jangaon district, the Chief Minister said his government will set up 2,604 Rythu Vedikas, land across the state for the farmers. Each Rythu Vedika will be set in 5,000 acres of land. “Rythu Vedika is the first of its kind initiative in the entire country. The government will spend Rs 600 crore to construct 2,604 Rythu Vedika,  The Rythu Vedikas will help you in getting remunerative prices, better marketing facilities, higher productivity and ultimately making agriculture profitable,” he said.

He said farmers across the country have no platform to discuss newer farming practices and advanced technology for better yields. “We should take the example of the USA and Europe. Rythu Vedia will play an important role in the successful implementation of regulated farming. Our government will encourage farmers to adopt innovative and modern agriculture practices, ensure the flow of credit to the agriculture and allied sectors, help the farmers to interact and share knowledge. You will not face losses if you grow crops as per the suggestions given by the government You should all the awareness programs on farming at the Rythu Vedikas when the officials visit,” he said.

He said Telangana is the only state that procures paddy directly from the farmers. The CM said the ministers are directed to open the paddy procurement centers at all villages in order to avoid farmers going to the market committees.

Ministers Errabelli Dayakar Rao, Nirajan Reddy, Satyavati Rathod, Rythu Bandhu state president Palla Rajeshwar Reddy, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar, several MPs MLAs and MLCs were present at the inauguration of the first Rythu Vedika.

Modi Recalls Emergency Times, Terms it Darkest Period


[dropcap]D[/dropcap]ays after BJP senior leader LK Advani told a leading daily that there could be return of emergency, prime minister Narendra Modi recalled the emergency period and termed it as India’s darkest period, as proclamation of emergency in India marks 40 years today.

Narendra Modi who inaugurated three development schemes to develop cities and towns has spoken his heart about emergency. Hailing late Jayaprakash Narayan, Modi said that a large number of people then resisted emergency and were jailed. The then government (Congress) made country into a jail, said Modi.

Explaining the horrific condition of the newspapers, Modi went on to say as to how newspapers were refrained from publishing fair views and how press came under scanner. Only All India Radio was allowed to function and it used to air what government deems it fit, added Modi.

Are these statements on press sending indirect signals to Chandrababu Naidu that they won’t be indulging in any acts that has to deal with curbing freedom of press? It’s a million dollar question.It is known that Andhra Pradesh CID recently served notices on a vernacular news channel for airing the alleged conversation of TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu.

Does India Need Conflict of Interest Law?


As the union minister Sushma Swaraj admitted that she helped tainted IPL ex chief Lalit Modi in getting the required documents to travel the United Kingdom, the demand for conflict of law is certainly the main point of analysts while the political opponents press for Sushma Swaraj’s resignation.
Before we demand for Swaraj’s resignation, on moral grounds, why not learn about ‘conflict of interest,’ and it’s need for country.
Conflict of Interest:
When a person, who is at a responsible job, can misuse the power that he possesses on encountering a person close to him who requires his official help– is called conflict of interest. In simpler words, it’s a clash between the official power and personal relations where the latter usually wins over the former in the absence of stringent laws.
First came into scene:
Germany’s supremo Adolf Hitler first brought in conflict of interest laws as he firmly believed that his military had greater ambitions, which could be affected due to personal favouritisms.
There are basically two types of conflict of interest–self dealing and nepotism. In self-dealing, a person will directly deal with the opposite party whereas in nepotism, kin and kith of the person in power will press for favours.
What happened in Sushma Swaraj’s case:
Sushma Swaraj’s daughter, who is an advocate, was dealing Lalit Modi’s case. It is known that Lalit Modi was wrapped up in the infamous IPL scam that kept him and the country in bad light. Also, he was asked not to move to any other country.

After Sushma Swaraj came to power, her daughter apparently sought favours-amounting to misuse of powers-from her.

Accordingly, as Sushma Swaraj admitted, she helped her daughter get the travel documents of Lalit Modi so that he could shift his base to the United Kingdom.
This is a clear case of nepositism as Sushma Swaraj’s daughter is involved.
Earlier instances:
Many such cases came into the picture earlier in India. UPA’s then chairperson Sonia Gandhi time and again hit the headlines for allegedly helping out her son-in-law Robert Vodra in many scams.
Implementation in corporate offices:
Many corporate offices have their own conflict of interest policies, accordinly, no husband and wife would be allowed to work in the same company as they might not be discharging their duties properly trying to favour eachother.
Need for conflict of interest law:
The country undoubtedly needs a strong conflict of interest law so that the leaders, like Sushma Swaraj, will time and again think about the law before they give into the demands of their kin and kith.

Make in Telangana: New Industrial Policy Announced


Telangana Government has announced a new industrial policy to attract investors from across the globe with an aim to boost the image of the capital city—Hyderabad.  Various banners set up across the city carry the slogan ‘Make in Hyderabad.’  It is known that ‘Make in India,’ is the slogan that was coined by the prime minister Narendra Modi to lure investments from China. It now looks like chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao is imitating Modi.

The HICC, which is hosting the mega industrial-policy meet in Hyderabad, was beautifully decorated. All the delegates of important companies are reportedly attending this meet. In fact, at least 2000 seating arrangements were made for VIPs alone, which reflect the magnitude of the meet.

The new industrial policy aims at granting industrial licenses to the companies without any hurdles. Also, there will be a single window system wherein prospective industries-wishing to set up their offices in Hyderabad-can directly apply for company licenses online, which will be cleared in two weeks, if we have to go by the buzz.

It is known that Microsoft-which was functioning in three units at rental facilities-recently got a permanent location in Hyderabad, which was confirmed when IT minister KTR was on US tour. Now, the government sources revealed that another mobile major—Micromax will set up its facility in Hyderabad soon.

Notably, a manufacturing unit of Amazon was recently set up near Hyderabad. All these developments are proving that no matter even if Hyderabad is the capital of Telangana, it will still remain as a global city that will welcome people from across the globe.

However, KCR imitating Modi is the sole question here. It is still not ascertained whether Modi gave any guidelines to KCR at personal level or the latter is trying to impress the prime minister, especially in the wake of cash-for-vote and subsequent meet of Chandrababu with Narendra Modi.

Narendra Modi-Profile


Narendra Modi is the current prime minister of India. He is regarded as one of the most popular statesmen of the time. Narendra Modi is primarily responsible to bring NDA government to power with a landslide victory. His name ‘NaMo’ became a chant amongst the youth of India much before he was declared the prime minister candidate by the opposition NDA in 2014.

Born on September 17, 1950 in the then Bombay State, Narendra Modi helped his father sell tea at local bus stations. He later set up his micro tea-stall at a bus station. Modi always had a keen interest in rhetorics. After completion of his secondary schooling, Modi was fascinated by the ideologies of RSS that made him join as junior cadet.

Modi was against arranged marriage and left his home, when he was engaged to Jashodabehn, at a very young age. During this time, he traveled length and breadth of the country, visiting several mutts set up by Swami Vivekananda.

Modi became full time ‘prachaarak’ of RSS at a later stage of his life. He completed degree in political science through distance mode in 1978 when he became a regional organizer of RSS.

When Indira Gandhi declared emergency in 1975, RSS was banned. Modi went underground and printed pamphlets against the government. Noticing his keen interest in political affairs, RSS assigned Modi to BJP in 1985.

Modi worked closely with LK Advani and Murali Manohar Joshi during ‘Ayodhya Rath Yatra.’ In 1998, Modi’s strategies in Gujarat enabled the party to make a clean sweep in the state. When the then chief minister Keshubhai Patel’s health deteriorated, BJP looked for an alternative candidate to replace the CM. Modi’s name surfaced and thus he was made the chief minister of Gujarat in 2001.

When Modi’s government was accused of alleged involvement in Godhra massacre, TDP and DMK parties demanded Narendra Modi to resign. Owing to these demands, Modi dissolved his government and went for elections in 2002. BJP made a clean sweep and Narendra Modi served as chief minister of Gujarat for three consecutive terms till 2014.

Witnessing the development in Gujarat, the youth of the country strongly advocated for Modi’s sarkar at the Centre. Subsequently, BJP banked upon his popularity and made him the prime ministerial candidate.

For the first time, BJP won with absolute majority in 2014. However, it decided to form NDA Government. On May 26, 2014, Narendra Modi sworn in as the prime minister of India.
