Manipur employees demands white-paper on 6th Pay commission

Imphal: The agitating Joint Administrative Council (JAC) of All Manipur Trade Union Council (AMTUC) and All Manipur Employees Organization (AMGEO) on Saturday demanded a white paper from the chief minister of Manipur regarding the issue of the implementation of 6th Central Pay Commission especially in its reported statement that the state will have to spend about Rs. 2000-4000 crores for the implementation of the pay commission. The JAC also alleged that this was a false information from the part of the chief minister.

Briefing media persons in this connection at its office at Babupara, Imphal, the general secretary of the JAC, Ch. Chandramani, revealed that the chief minister had misinformed the general public often in his speeches during functions regarding the issue of implementation of the 6th Pay Commission. Chandramani also pointed out that the chief minister had often commented that to implement the revised pay the state needs around Rs. 2000 to 4000 crores which if implemented it will affect the state developmental plans.

However, contrary to the chief minister’s information Chandramani pointed out that as per the calculation of the JAC the total amount required altogether, including the due from 2006 to 2009 is about Rs 1240.71 crores. In this regard, he asserted that the chief minister had misinformed the general public which could lead to a misunderstanding between the JAC and the public and demanded a white paper regarding the information provided for transparency.

Ch. Madhumangol, the president of the JAC, also said that the JAC started its agitation from November 2008 however, lamented that no official response had been provided by the government so far and expressed his discontent over the chief minister’s comments. The president further pointed out that there were separate funds for plans and non-plan and that the chief minister’s comment of affecting the developmental work due to the 6th Pay commission implementation was baseless.

Manipur gears up for LS polls

Imphal : With the Lok Sabha elections round the corner, Manipur is all set for the big day with major political parties in the state, the Congress and Bharatya Janata Party (BJP) gearing up for the day. As per reports, the BJP has already nominated former chief minister of the state, W. Nipamacha as its candidate for the Inner Constituency. However, there have been no reports of the Congress or any other major party of the state finalising their candidates till date.

Though, according to reports, the BJP Manipur Pradesh officially confirmed the candidature of W. Nipamacha on January 20 last along with other 17 (seventeen) candidates for the ensuing Lok Sabha elections in a meeting of the central election committee of the BJP under the presidentship of Rajnath Singh and attended by LK Advani, the prime ministerial candidate of the party, preparations to the polls in Manipur supposedly began as early as November 2008 when there were reported instances of politicians of the state shifting parties.

According to reports, a good number of politicians, about 14 (fourteen) joined the BJP in November last including four from the Manipur People’s Party (MPP), a prominent political party of the state besides being a leading opposition party of the state. These four reportedly include former chief minister RK. Dorendra and three other former ministers; Salam Ibohal, Meinam Nilachandra and ex-candidate Kh. Dinamani.

Accepting them into the party, Dr. Haobam Borbabu, president of the BJP Manipur Pradesh stated that more and more were joining the party as they have complete trust in the party. He is also reported to have expressed his confidence of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) returning to power at the centre after the Lok Sabha elections followed by a similar change in the power equilibrium in Manipur too.
And as for the Congress, its victory over the MPP candidate in the recently held Moirang A/C by-election was perhaps an “acid test for the Congress” as termed by the chief minister, O. Ibobi Singh.

While addressing the 123rd anniversary of the Indian National Congress on December 28, Ibobi Singh reportedly alleged that the result would help determine whether the people of the state have faith in the Congress led government or not. Perhaps, one could well term this statement of the chief minister as ascertaining the faith of the people of the state with the approaching Lok Sabha elections. However, interestingly the Congress has not, so far nominated or given out the name of any candidate for the elections. But it is also worth noting here that the sitting member of parliament (MP) of Inner Manipur, Dr. Th. Meinya is a candidate of the Congress in the Inner constituency and could well be set for another term.

Meanwhile, BJP is also all set to compete in the Outer Manipur parliamentary constituency for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. However, according to certain reports, this will be decided during a three day National executive meeting of the party to be held in Nagpur from February 6.

It would perhaps be interesting to note here that Mani Charanamei, an independent candidate, is presently the sitting MP of Outer Manipur parliamentary constituency.
Meanwhile, in a reported statement that could well be considered one of the highs of the ‘campaign’ for the parliamentary elections, P. Chandrasekhar Rao, organisational secretary of the North East zone BJP asserted that the law and order situation of Manipur was deteriorating under the Congress and observed that there was a need for change in the state government. He was recently on a three day visit to the state to hold discussion with the leaders of the BJP in relation with the upcoming parliamentary elections. Rao also reportedly asserted that only the BJP could bring a change to the state.

In such a situation, there are certain questions that linger in the minds of the people. It will sure be another “acid test” for the Congress. But will they pass the test this time, or will it be the BJP or another party? Perhaps, Independent again? Only time can tell. (NNN)

NE Students’ Team formed in Mangalore

Dimapur : Sparsha, a youth counseling centre in Mangalore along with Master of Social Work students from Mangalore University and various colleges have taken initiatives in launching a forum for North East students in Mangalore. North East Students’ Team (NEST) was formed with the idea of bringing students from the North East together and to make them feel at home and also help local people to know more about the seven sister states.

A North East day was observed on January 25, 2009 at Kalaangann, the Konkani cultural heritage centre, Mangalore. The day was marked with cultural events and a work-shop on the topic “Team Work in Success”. About 150 students studying in various colleges participated in the event.

The S.P. Excise Department, Intelligence & Enforcement George Pinto inaugurated the event by lighting the lamp. Eminent Konkani Activist Eric Ozario and Sparsha’s Denis D’Silva and Roshan Castelino also graced the occasion.

while addressing the students Castelino dwelt on the genisis of NEST saying, “Some students from North East approached Sparsha for counseling as they were finding it difficult to adjust with the new place. This approach made Sparsha to come up with an idea of forming NEST. Sparsha will be the second home for NEST and will be a support system.”

Eric Ozario, who is also the brain behind the Konkani winning Guinness Worlds record for longest marathon singing, said that he envies the rich culture of the beautiful hilly states. He added that he would like to see the states to come together in a bid to break the World Record for longest marathon singing. He said that 40 years back when he was in college there were only two students from the region. “I still remember a northeast student saying in a seminar that everybody looks at them as foreigners and they are not treated as a fellow Indian. The guilt I had since that day has been removed today as I am standing here with you.”

He also appealed to students not to feel insecure but to widen their networking circle with people. He assured NE students saying, ‘if Sparsha is the second home for NEST then Kalaangann is the third home’.

He also mentioned that the NE students are welcome to participate at Kalaangann monthly theatre so that the rest of the Mangaloreans can learn the rich culture of the region. George Pinto in his address said that he is ready to help the NE students regarding any problem related to legal or political concerns. “You are like my own brothers and sisters and if you require any service from me, I am there 24 hours for you.”

Veluhu Vero, President of NEST, said that though we are miles away from home, there are people who are there for us. He expressed his gratitude for Sparsha who helped NEST to contribute towards the betterment of society.

Meghalaya chakka bandh from February 7

Shillong : Peeved by the Meghalaya government's failure to abolish various unauthorized gates from National Highway-62, the Goalpara District Truck Owners' Association (GDTOA) has called for an indefinite chakka bandh from February 7.

The decision of the association was taken at a joint meeting on January 27 for which a memorandum seeking abolition of unauthorized gates and illegal collection from NH-62 was also submitted to Meghalaya Governor RS Mooshahary and Chief Minister Donkupar Roy today.

According to the GDTOA, despite repeated request made by them to the Meghalaya government to abolish the unauthorized gates no initiative has been taken by the government. "We are left with no choice, but to call for an indefinite chakka bandh if the Meghalaya government still pays no heed," the GDTOA said.

Pointing out that about 2000 coal laden trucks ply through the NH-62 the GDTOA said that the excessive collection of money by the unauthorized gates, pollution testing centres and weigh bridges have caused 'irreparable' loss and 'injury' to the coal truckers. Besides, erecting gates, weigh bridges and pollution testing centres is quite irrelevant and unlawful, the association added.

Ceasefire without territorial limits

Dimapur: With the standoff tension in Shiroi village between the AR and NSCN (IM) cadres mounting, the Naga Hoho today shot off a letter to the Union Home Minister demanding that the current ceasefire be made to “cover the entire world”. Relatively, the Home Ministry is urged to intervene immediately in the standoff which entered its twelfth day today.

In its representation addressed to Union Home minister P Chidambaram, the Naga Hoho told the Centre that the first ceasefire with the NNC broke down ‘due to the insincerity on the part of the GoI’. “The notion of GoI would be wrong in the context of ceasefire coverage if it covers only the present state of Nagaland and therefore the Naga Hoho put forward stiff resistance that hereinafter, the ceasefire must cover the entire world in letter and spirit”. The Naga Hoho, in reference to the Centre’s ceasefire with the NNC, said the Naga people this time “are not at all keen to lose the ongoing hard-earned peace process”.

On the Shiroi situation, the apex Naga tribal organization informed the minister that the NSCN (IM) cadres at Shiroi had been camping in the village “since few years back with mutual understanding of GoI as well as Indian armed forces”. Yet, the hoho stated, on January 19 at around 2:30 AM, troopers of the 17th Assam Rifles cordoned off the Naga underground activists’ camp and cut off electricity and water supply “to the camp”.

The hoho expressed anxiety that the “starving Naga army” may “create havoc out of desperation”, which will derail the Indo-Naga peace process. Further, the minister was informed of the Assam Rifles’ erecting barbed electrified wires around the NSCN (IM) camp. This is “akin to act of barbarism and sheer violation of basic Human Rights” the hoho said.

The Naga Hoho recounted more of the Shiroi situation to Chidambaram: “…innocent villagers are unable to go to fields, schools and have even postponed the traditional seed-sowing festival which was supposed to be held on 27th January, owing to fear psychosis that are looming in the minds of the villagers with the presence of hundreds of armed forces. Shiroi’s children have also been shifted to other villages as a precautionary measure, the hoho said.

The Naga Hoho stated: “…we have seen with our own naked eyes that all the womenfolk both in Shiroi and Ukhrul are on a sit-in protest in the chilly weather and praying throughout the day for prevention (of) any untoward armed conflict between the NSCN and Assam Rifles”. The Naga Hoho also termed as ‘unfortunate’, that “the location is such that there is no other passage for NSCN (IM) to move out from their camp unless the Assam Rifles pave the way for them based on the principles of ongoing ceasefire between the two entities”. In appeal, the Naga Hoho requested Chidambaram to handle the delicate political situation with utmost care and “bring down the volatility in to normalcy without further impediments”.

Nagaland asks schools to adopt two-sport discipline

KOHIMA: Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio said all schools in the state should adopt at least two sports disciplines of their choice to tap talents at a tender age. Speaking at a function here to felicitate sportspersons who brought laurels to Nagaland, Rio said state government had encouraged sports associations to appoint professional coaches to train young people in various disciplines.

He pointed out that Nagaland, which participated in the National Games for the first time at Guwahati in 2007 after the formation of the Nagaland Olympic Association (NOA), won 11 medals, including a gold.

Referring to a small country like Cameroon which attracted world attention through football, Rio said, "After seeing Olympics in Sydney and Beijing, football World Cups and other international sports events my experience is that sports is the only route through which Nagaland can shot into prominence in the world stage."

A total of 147 sportspersons, including three coaches who won medals at international, national and regional sports meets were felicitated and rewarded by the Chief Minister and Parliamentary Secretary for Sport and Youth Resources, Neiba Konyak.

Chief Minister with two dancers at BOATImage by ahinsajain via Flickr

IMPHAL, Jan 30: Inaugurating the first tribal cultural exchange programme at the auditorium of Tribal Research Institution at Chingmeirong here today, Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh has assured that additional fund would be earmarked in the budget for the promotion of cultural identity of various ethnic groups living in Manipur.

The day-long first tribal cultural exchange programme was organised by the All Tribal Students’ Union, Manipur (ATSUM). The theme of the cultural exchange programme was ‘Our culture, our identity’.

Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh was the chief guest of the inaugural function which was also attended by Chairman of Hill Areas Committee of the Manipur Legislative Assembly Thangminlien Kipgen, MP of Outer Manipur Parliamentary Constituency Mani Charenamei and senior Cabinet Ministers among other leaders of various tribal voluntary organisations.

Various cultural troupes like Poumai cultural troupe and Maram cultural troupe from Senapati district, Hmar Cultural troupe from Churachandpur district, NSUC cultural troupe from Chandel district, Kuki cultural troupe from Sadar Hills, Tangkhul cultural troupe from Ukhrul district, Kom cultural troupe, Paite cultural troupe and Zeliangrong cultural troupe presented dances and songs at the occasion.

Addressing the gathering, Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh appreciated the efforts being made by various sub-tribes in every districts of Manipur to protect their own cultural identity and observed that a society which has no culture of its own is a meaningless society.

As culture is an important element that can promote better relationship among various groups of people living in Manipur, organising of such cultural exchange programmes should be encouraged, the Chief Minister said, while assuring that additional fund would be earmarked in the budget for the promotion and development of the cultural identity of various ethnic groups living in the State.

Stating that the cultural exchange programme being organised by ATSUM in addition to taking up various issues related to public welfare is encouraging, the Chief Minister further assured that the Government would look into the other unfulfilled demands of the student body.

He also donated a sum of Rs 1 lakh to the organiser towards ensuring successful organisation of the programme.

Speaking of developmental works, the Chief Minister informed the gathering that the Government has allocated necessary fund for the development of hill districts in the State. He also sought the co-operation of the people in monitoring the quality of the developmental works being executed by the Government.

Tribal Development Minister DD Thaisii, who also spoke at the occasion, noted that since Manipur consists of hill and valley, the mutual co-operation and support of the people living in both the hills and the valley area is essential for development and welfare of all the communities in the State.

No question of designated camp here... State Government tells Delhi

UkhrulImage via Wikipedia

IMPHAL, Jan 30 : Even as the stand off between the Assam Rifles and the NSCN (IM) entered the 12th day today over the opening of a camp of the latter at Siroy village in Ukhrul district, the State Government has submitted a written missive to the Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister categorically stating that there can be no question of any designated camp of the IM group in Manipur.

Disclosing this to The Sangai Express today, a reliable source said that the minutes of the missive was drafted after the meeting of the Unified Command, which was held yesterday with the Chief Minister in the chair and attended by officers from the Army, Assam Rifles, CRPF, BSF and State police, besides civil servants.

In the missive the State Government has not minced any word in stating that Manipur does not come under the cease fire pact between the NSCN (IM) and the Government of India. As such the question of setting up designated camps of the rebel group in Manipur does not arise, said the source.

Referring to the contents of the missive, the source said that the State Government does not recognise any designated camp in Manipur and will not do so.

Interestingly, the Assam Rifles had earlier stated that it had ‘taken note’ of the existence of three camps of the NSCN (IM). The camps are located at Bunning in Tamenglong, Oklong in Senapati and Phungchong in Chandel.

The Assam Rifles had also maintained that these camps were in existence before the cease fire came into force.

The cease fire is effective only in Nagaland and the phrase ‘without territorial limits’ which was announced in the Bangkok Declaration of June 14, 2001 was rolled back following the huge uproar in Manipur on June 18, 2001 and the days that followed.

The written missive was submitted to the Prime Minister and the Home Minister today, said the source and added that an immediate response from the Centre is yet to come.

On the other hand it is reliably learnt that the Centre has taken note of the situation and has started negotiations through the Ceasefire Monitoring Group.

The source further said that after the meeting of the Unified Command yesterday, all Central agencies operating in Manipur have sent their inputs to the Centre, particularly the Union Home Ministry.

As of today the Centre is currently keeping a close tab on the situation in Manipur, said the source further.

Meanwhile Chief Secretary Rakesh and the Principal Secretary (Home) DS Poonia left for Delhi today to attend the meeting convened by the Union Cabinet Secretary scheduled for tomorrow.
The meeting is being convened to discuss the flagship programmes of the UPA Government.

With serious concern being raised from different quarters over the Siroy situation, Outer Manipur Lok Sabha MP Mani Charenamei visited the village yesterday during which he acknowledged the positive role played by the villagers to avert any blood shed between the NSCN (IM) cadres and the Assam Rifles.

Besides supporting the villagers in their stand, the MP also received a memorandum submitted by the Shirui Non Violence Committee.

The memorandum which was submitted yesterday said that the Committee was formed under the motto ‘To live a normal and peaceful life.’

Outlining the situation in the village since January 19, the Committee in the memorandum said that for the last 11 days the daily activities of the villagers have been paralysed which has adversely affected their economic and social conditions.

Besides this, the stand off has also created fear psychosis among the villagers which has affected their ability to respond to the challenges posed by the current situation, said the memorandum.

The Committee also expressed apprehension that if the stand off is allowed to fester longer, it may result in a situation in which the villagers have to face starvation in the future.

The memorandum then demanded that the two parties, namely “Assam Rifles and the NSCN (IM) should withdraw from Siroy at the earliest; the security of our lives, our livelihood and future survival should be guaranteed and should in no way be adversely affected at any cost as result of the siege.” The memorandum was signed by the Convenor and Secretary of the newly formed Committee.

The last day of Mahatma Gandhi

V Kalyanam, personal secretary to Mahatma Gandhi, recounts Friday, January 30, 1948, moment-by-moment - the day when the Mahatma was shot. V Kalyanam was just behind Gandhi when Naturam Godse fired his shots.

Mahatma Gandhi arrived in Delhi on Tuesday, 9 Septemper 1947, from Calcutta. He was staying in Birla House at Albuquerque Road (now renamed Thees January Marg - 30th January Road). A large carpeted room with an attached toilet was placed at his disposal for use by his entourage. This was an all-purpose room in the ground floor of the huge mansion. A thick cotton mattress and a huge pillow to recline, with a desk in front, was placed in one corner of the room. At the other end was a table and chair piled with correspondence. Gandhiji usually spent the whole day here attending to his correspondence, talking to people, spinning his charkha and taking his midday siesta. There was also a balcony, fully enclosed with glass doors, adjoining the room where he would sleep at nights on the carpeted floor, along with the rest of us.

Image Caption:Gandhiji shares a lighter moment with visitors. V Kalyanam is seen to the right of the Mahatma.Friday, 30 January 1948, dawned like any other day. We never knew what was going to happen in the evening. We got up as usual for our prayers at 3.30. We went about our daily routine with no thought about what the day had in store for us. Gandhiji roused his grand niece Abha to get up.

After his ablutions, Gandhiji came out of the toilet and squatted on the mattress. We sat before him. Gandhiji`s day always commenced with prayer. He described prayer as the key of the morning and bolt of the evening. His prayers included recitations from the scriptures of all religions, particularly Hindusim and Islam, in order to stress the essential unity of all religions.

He closed his eyes in meditation. Abha was still asleep. He had noticed her absence. Prayer was held without Abha`s participation. Immediately after the prayer Manu went to the kitchen to fetch Gandhiji`s morning beverage - a glass of hot water mixed with a tablespoonful of honey and lime. When she handed him the marble tumbler of nectar, Gandhiji told her in Gujarati, `It appears my influence, even among my close companions, is waning. Prayer is like a broomstick meant to cleanse one`s soul. Abha`s failure to participate in the prayer pains me. You are aware of the importance I attach to prayer. If you have the courage, you may, on my behalf convey my displeasure to her. If she is not willing to participate in the prayer she should take leave of me. This will be in out joint interest!

Meanwhile, Abha got up and started attending to her work. Gandhiji, did not, for reasons known to him, confront her directly. I continued to sit by his side to receive my instructions for the day. He wanted me to make arrangements for his visit to Sevagram for ten days from 2nd February. I placed before him the typed draft of the new constitution for the Indian National Congress he had dictated to me the previous day, suggesting its disbandment and reconstitution as a new body with greater emphasis on social service and rural uplift. He was not inclined to go through it. He summoned my superior Pyarelalji and handed the draft to him with instructions to peruse it carefully and make any suggestions or corrections that he may consider necessary.

I do not wish to live long

Conditions in Delhi were far from normal those days. There had been communal disturbances owing to the large influx of Hindu refugees from Pakistan. Having gone through unpleasant experiences at the hands of Muslims in Pakistan, they wanted to take revenge on Muslims in Delhi. Delegations of Muslim and Hindu leaders called on him everyday to discuss ways and means of restoring normalcy in the capital.

During those cold winter days, Gandhiji preferred to spend the day sitting on a charpoy in the open lawn, basking in the sun. His daily engagements were crowded. He could never be seen idle. When he had no appoinments he would be busy writing letters and articles in Gujarati, Hindi and English. While Ministers and other VIPs visited him by prior appointment, Pandit Nehru, whenever he was in station, made it a point to call on Gandhiji, at about 9 am, on his way to office.

Among the prominent visitors who met Gandhiji that day was Mrs R K Nehru, who came in at 6 am. She was scheduled to leave for USA in the afternoon. At her request Gandhiji gave her an autographed photograph with the message, `As a representative of a poor nation, you should lead a simple and frugal life while you are there`. At 2 pm, Margaret Bourke White, famous photographer of the Life magazine interviewed Gandhiji. In the course of her conversation, she asked him, "You have always stated that you would like to live up to 125. What gives you that hope?." Gandhiji surprised her by answering that he no longer entertained that hope. When questioned why, he replied, `Because of the terrible happenings in the world. I do not want to live in darkness`.

Image Caption:Gandhi's workplace – Most of his time at Birla House was spent in writing letters, meeting visitors and prayers.Soon after she left, Prof N R Malkhani, our Deputy High Commissioner in Pakistan, met Gandhiji with two others and told him of the sad plight of the Hindus of Sind. After hearing them patiently, Gandhi replied, `These things would not have happened had people listened to me. I say things, which do not go home, yet I go on saying what I believe to be true. I know that I am a 'back number`.

Bob Stimsom of the BBC, who had submitted some questions to Gandhiji, was to meet him after the prayers. He had already arrived and proceeded straight to the lawn where Gandhiji was to hold the prayer. Chief Minister U N Dhebar and Rasiklal Parekh from Kathiawar and the celebrated author Vincent Shean, who had some interviews with Gandhiji in the last few days, had also come without prior appointment in the hope of meeting Gandhiji. All of them were disappointed.

Birla House had its own watchmen at the gate. There had been objections to the recitation of the Koran at Gandhiji`s earlier public meetings in the previous year. Sardar Patel had therefore, in his capacity as Home Minister, ordered the deployment of one head constable and four foot-constables at Birla House as a precautionary measure.

Bomb explodes at Gandhiji's prayer meeting

There was a bomb explosion at the prayer meeting on 20 January. Madan Lal, the Punjabi refugee had thrown a bomb, but it didn't hint him. A wall was broken that's all and Gandhi never thought somebody had come to kill him. Gandhiji had undertaken a fast against the Government of India`s decision to hold back payment of Pakistan`s share of the cash balances (Rs 50 Cr) due to them on the ground that Pakistan had connived with the Afridi tribesmen to invade and occupy Kashmir. To save Gandhiji`s life, the government relented and released the amount. Fundamentalist Hindus were infuriated by Gandhiji`s tactics and felt that he was appeasing Muslims to the detriment of the Hindu community. The bomb incident referred to was a consequence of this.

The police guards at Birla House were therefore increased. They had instructions to stop all persons who appeared to be of doubtful character. However, the police considered that to make the precautions more effective they should be permitted to search every visitor entering the compound to attend the prayer or at other times. When a police Superintendent approached me with this proposal, I consulted Gandhiji. He did not agree to the search and I informed the Superintendent accordingly. This decision was conveyed to the higher authorities and within minutes the DIG arrived and sought permission to speak to Gandhiji. I ushered him in. The DIG represented that there was danger to his life and the facilities asked for should be allowed as otherwise the police would be discredited if any mishap took place.

Men who want security have no right to live: Gandhi

Gandhiji would have none of it and told him bluntly that his life was in the hands of God and that if he had to die no precautions could save him. `Those who preferred security to freedom had no right to live`, he said. He would rather stop holding public prayer meetings than agree to any such personal search. Police in plain clothes were then asked to keep a watch on suspicious characters and prevent anyone from attacking Gandhiji while he was on his way to the prayer and back. t two in the afternoon Abha and Manu had, with Gandhiji`s permission, gone to visit some friends, promising to return in time for the evening prayers. The responsibility of serving Gandhiji`s evening meal fell on me. Although the government had been in office for only five months, the media was full of alleged differences between Pandit Nehru and Sardar Patel. Gandhiji was distressed with these rumours and wanted to counter this. He was even thinking of asking Sardar Patel to resign so that Nehru may have a free hand to conduct the affairs of the country. But that didn't happen. He had summoned Patel for a discussion at 4 pm and intended to speak on the subject after the prayers, but that was not to be. Accompanied by his daughter Maniban, Patel arrived on time when Gandhiji was having his frugal supper. While they were conversing, Abha and Manu had also arrived.

The Last Meeting with Sardar Patel

Prayer was scheduled to start at 5 pm. The discussion between Gandhiji and Patel continued beyond 5 pm. In view of the importance and seriousness of the talk, none of us dared to disturb them. The girls gestured to Sardar`s daughter Maniben and the talk ended at 5.10 pm. After that, Gandhi went to the toilet and immediately proceeded to the prayer ground, which was nearly 30-40 yards away. There were four or five steps and then there was a big lawn. Gandhiji was late by fifteen minutes for the prayer meeting. There were about 250 people anxiously awaiting his arrival. I could see from the distance that the attention of the gathering was focused on Gandhiji`s room. And, as he emerged, I heard people saying, `There comes Gandhiji`. The word went round when all necks craned and eyes stared in his direction. Gandhiji walked briskly as usual with his head bent and his glance glued to the ground, supporting himself on the shoulders of the two grand nieces. I was following closely to his left.

I heard him admonishing the girls for not telling him that it was getting late for the prayer meeting. He told them that they were his time-keepers. "I am late. I do not like all this," he added. When Manu replied that they did not want to interrupt because of the serious nature of their talks, Gandhiji shot back, "It is the duty of a nurse to give medicines at the right time to a patient. If there is delay the patient may die".

When Nathuram Godse fired his shots…..We ascended the steps leading to the prayer platform. People stood with folded hands and Gandhiji reciprocated. They made way for him to go to the rostrum, about 25 feet from the steps, where he would sit on a one-foot-high wooden dais. The assassin (Nathuram Godse) had obviously been waiting in this crowd hiding a revolver in his pocket. Gandhiji had walked hardly five or six paces when the assassin fired some shots in quick succession from close range resulting in the Mahatma`s instantaneous death. He fell behind bleeding profusely and in that melee, his spectacles and footwear were thrown asunder. I was too shocked and dumb-founded to react. Later, in loneliness, tears came to my eyes.

The news spreads fast. Within minutes, a crowd started gathering outside Birla House and the gate had to be closed to prevent people entering the premises. Patel had already left. I rushed to my room and conveyed the news to Nehru`s office by phone. In those days we had free access to Ministers` residences. I pushed my way through the crowd, got into a waiting car and sped to Patel`s house, hardly five minutes drive, to inform him of the calamity.

Meantime, his body was lifted and carried to his room. There he lay on the mat with people around him. He looked as if he was asleep. His body was warm for quite some time. Night was passed with distress and tears - not for a few chosen ones, but for the millions all over the world for whom he lived and died.

Immediately after Gandhiji`s body was carried away to his room, there was a scramble from the public to possess something belonging to Gandhiji as a souvenir. They started removing a handful of earth from the place where Gandhiji fell to the assassin`s bullet, leaving a big pit there within hours. Arrangements were then made to have the area cordoned and guard was posted there.

In this connection, detailing the precautions taken by the government to protect Mahatma Gandhi prior to and after the bomb explosion at his prayer meetings, the Home Minister, Sardar Patel declared, "I had personally pleaded with Bapu to permit the police to do their duty in regard to his protection but without success. To my profound regret and utter sorrow and to the irreparable loss of all of us, the nation and the world, the weak spot both I and the police had apprehended was deceitfully and successfully exploited by the assassin and Gandhiji`s prophetic words that, if he had to die, no precaution could save him, came true".

"Gandhi never uttered 'Hey Ram' when he was shot at"

It is widely stated that Gandhiji invoked God saying, "Hey Ram" as he was assassinated. There was no possibility at all of his uttering a single syllable although he had often proclaimed that he would like to die with the name of Ram on his lips. This speculative comment by some enterprising, shrewd reporter has gained worldwide currency, the authenticity of which has never been verified.

A monumental falsehood has been thrust into the mouth of the apostle of truth. Had he been sick or bed-ridden, he would have surely invoked Ram. But here he was denied that opportunity. It is indeed very strange that the commission that was appointed to probe into Gandhiji`s killing never thought of making any enquiries from any one of us who were so close to him on that day.

In his last few days in his post-prayer speeches, Gandhiji had been repeatedly expressing the wish that God take him away since he did not want to be a silent witness to the monstrous barbarities that were going on in the country. I thought God had answered his prayer through the assassin. He had a glorious death while he was walking towards God and not on sick bed. He died without anguish, without pain for a moment.

IIM-Shillong to have ‘collaborative innovation centre’

Kolkata: The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Shillong, is all set to come up with a "collaborative innovation centre" by May, in a bid to inspire ideas for a wholesome social development. Speaking on the sidelines of a conference and exhibition 'Infocom 08-09' here on Saturday, IIM (Shillong) Director Ashok Dutta said the centre would aim at promoting innovative ideas to solve the problems that emanate out of poverty and resource constraints.

"The initiative, first-of-its-kind by an IIM, will be unlike an incubation centre set by a firm for promoting its business. It will develop ideas for tackling social problems, rather than being an isolated island of excellence. You cannot talk of development while you are surrounded by 800 million poverty-striken people," Mr Dutta explained.

Not only students, but also people from all walks of life would participate in the drive, he said, adding the centre would be sponsored by a think tank or NGO. The IIM would act as a facilitator in this regard, he informed. (UNI)

“Nagaland against Women Reservation”

State of Nagaland, India with districts and th...Image via Wikipedia

Kohima : A consultative meeting of Naga civil organizations, apex tribal hohos, students’ bodies and women organisations convened by the All-Political Party Consultative Committee to discuss the 108th (Amendment) Act 2008 (33% Women Reservation Bill), has decided not to implement it in Nagaland.

Highly-placed sources revealed that the meeting convened by the APPCC discussed at length on the issue. However, it was informed that a majority of the representatives present from apex tribal bodies and students’ unions ‘diplomatically’ expressed their views against implementing the reservation bill for women in Nagaland.

Most of the speakers, out of the 35 organisations attending the crucial meeting are said to have opined that the Naga society “does not discriminate” or “deprive women folk” in any field and so the 33% women reservation bill should not be implemented in the State.

On the other hand, some organizations asked for implementation of the reservation bill while explaining that theoretically ‘it is easy to say that there is no discrimination or deprivation amongst men or women, but practically it does not imply’.

However, with a majority of the civil organizations voting against the implementation of the bill, the meeting decided to submit a representation to the Parliament not to impose the reservation bill in the State of Nagaland. This way, it would giving an indication that “Nagaland” is “against” the 33 percent Women Reservation.

Earlier, a questionnaire was handed over to the 35 representatives attending the meeting where 18 stood against the bill while 12 stood in favour. There were four “partial view” while one “was silent”, sources said. At the end the meeting, it was concluded that the “Naga society” is against the 33 percent reservation in the state.

Mention may be made here that political parties of the state have already discussed the matter on earlier two occasions last year under the chairmanship of the NLA Speaker but were unable to take any concrete decision and the issue has finally been decided in today’s consultative meeting.

Today’s meeting was attended by PHE minister Dr Nganshi, Forest minister MC Konyak, Parliamentary Secretary Chumben Murry, NPF president and DAN minister Dr Shurhozelie, NLA Deputy Speaker Ralangthung, and the Nagaland Women Commission chairman Sano Vamuzo.

Five school principals in police custody for abstaining R-Day celebration

Imphal: Manipur Cabinet on Wednesday took a tough stand against five principals and the students of higher secondary schools located in Imphal for failing to participate in the 60th Republic Day celebration on January 26. As a penalty for abstaining from the Republic Day celebration in Imphal, the State Cabinet has "decided not to issue admit cards" to the students who are to appear in the Class XII examamination to be conducted by the State Education Council in February-March.

According to a Cabinet minister, the Cabinet has minutely discussed the matter and decided to take appropriate legal action against the five principals.

Apart from cancelling enrollment for the said students, the minister also informed that admit cards for the twelve standard students of the concerned schools will not be issued and added that promotion will be cancelled for the students appearing the promotion examination.

Meanwhile, police sources informed that the principals who were taken under custody by the police on Tuesday have been remanded under police custody on Wednesday for three days for further interrogation after producing them at the district magistrate court of Imphal.

The sources further said that an FIR under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act has been registered against the said principals at the Imphal police station.

The five principals have been registered under FIR No 28 (1) 09 IPC under section 124-A/341/501, 120-B IPC and 18/39 (2) UAP (Unlawful Activities Prevention) Amendment Act, 2004.

Apparently, the schools had been threatened by militant outfits of dire consequences if they participate in the Republic Day celebration.

The Cabinet meeting on Wednesday also discussed many other agenda, informed the minister and revealed that the Special Police Officer (SPO) has been converted into Village Defence Force (VDF).

Further, the Cabinet also approved to recruit another 10,350 SPOs with monthly salary of Rs 3000 and attach about 30 persons each in about 45 police stations.

Regarding the Siroy stand-off between the security forces personnel and the NSCN(IM), the minister informed that as per the instructions of the State Government, the Director General of Police (DGP) has submitted his reports regarding the incident and added that as per the reports the area will be cleared after two to three days time.

Until the situation is controlled, the Cabinet will conduct a review meeting after every two to three days, further conveyed the minister.

The minister also informed that the State boxer MC Mary Kom and L Sarita will be promoted to DSP from their respective inspector posts for their feat of achieving gold and silver medals respectively in the recently concluded 5th Asian Women Boxing Championship. (NNN)

IMPHAL, Jan 29 : With the NSCN (IM) refusing to budge from their stand over the camp at Siroy village, the State Government has decided to intimate its firm stand to the Union Home Ministry following a meeting of the Unified Command, which was chaired by the Chief Minister today. The decision to make its stand known was taken during a meeting of the Unified Command which was attended by the Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary (Home), DGP, GOC of 57 Mountain Division, IG AR (S) and top officials of the CRPF, BSF and Intelligence agencies today.

However on the other hand a source said that though the Siroy situation was discussed minutely no final decision was taken. Though no final decision was taken on the Siroy stand off today, it is reliably learnt that the State Government has started the process of finalising a missive to be sent to the Union Home Ministry.

Other than the Siroy situation, the Unified Command meeting also discussed the overall law and order situation in the State. The Centre is also likely to take up some proactive measures, said the source.

On the other hand when The Sangai Express inquired whether the IM cadres holed up at the Siroy camp have been sneaking out with arms, a reliable source refuted the report and added that there is no question of any cadre leaving the camp. There is no change, said the source.
The Cabinet had also discussed the issue yesterday.

Imphal-Jiri rail line... On maiden inspection, CM hits right chord with Noney

IMPHAL, Jan 29 : Striking the right chord during his maiden inspection of the Imphal-Jiribam rail line at Noney today, Chief Minister O Ibobi today urged all the concerned not to hesitate to approach him in case of any problem and also assured that from now on he would conduct personal sport inspection of the rail work every three month.

The Chief Minister accompanied by Transport Minister L Jayenta, Transport Commissioner H Imocha and other officials inspected the work progress of the railway platform at Karongmuang near Noney today.

The foundation stone for the Imphal-Jiribam rail line was laid by Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in November 2004, when he visited the State in the backdrop of the mass protests following the custodial killing of Manorama.

Inspecting the work progress amid tight security in view of the bandh imposed on NH-53 by the Oinamlong-Kaimai Village Chiefs Association, the Chief Minister asked the workers and others concerned to approach the Government, if they face any problems in executing their work.

Whether it is security cover or any other issues, the Government will make sure that things are taken care of, assured the Chief Minister.

Talking with the Railway officers, Ibobi assured that he would personally take stock of the progress of the work every three months and urged them to work with dedication.

The rail line laying work is being done by the Northern Frontier Railways.

Speaking to reporters who accompanied the team at Karongmuang, the Chief Minister said that in the first phase, the Jiri-Tupul rail line is expected to be completed by 2012. To meet the deadline, process of laying the rail track from the side of Tupul has also started, besides the ongoing work from the side of Jiribam.

Almost 80 pc of laying the first 10 kms of rail line from the side of Jiribam has been completed, he informed and added that the Centre has also given its nod to start work from the side of Tupul to lay the rail line covering 30 kms. If the need arises additional security will be deployed for the smooth progress of the work.

Asserting that there are no hindrances in laying the rail line, which has been taken up as a National project, the Chief Minister said that the Centre has agreed to extend the rail line from Tupul to Imphal.

A tunnel covering the distance of 8.1 km will be constructed bring the rail line to Imphal. There many firms which are capable of constructing such a long tunnel.

Interacting with the people who had come out to accord a warm welcome to the Chief Minister, he said that the once the rail line comes up, it will go a long way in solving the communication problem in the State.

The Chief Minister said that since the rail line is a National project, there will be no dearth of funds and added that the work is being closely monitored by the Prime Minister’s Office.
Explaining the reason for the suspending the DC of Tamenglong, the Chief Minister said that the step had to be taken up as he was not found at his place of posting as well as for failing to distribute the money allotted for land acquisition for the rail line to the affected people.
Stating that the working season in Manipur is short, the Chief Minister said the loss of one month working period can deal a big blow to any developmental work.

As such the failure of the DC to dispense with his work sincerely is akin to keeping the people of Manipur under ransom, said the Chief Minister.

Once the process of laying the rail track is finalised, Noney will be transformed to a big township, said the Chief Minister and urged the Railway officers to expedite the work so that the target is met.

Transport Minister L Jayentakumar while interacting with the local people, urged them to take an active role, so that the benefits of the rail line reach out to all. The local people also assured that they would extend all possible co-operation.

Government Chief Whip MLA T Mangibabu and Tamenglong MLA Khangthuanang also accompanied the Chief Minister.

The estimated cost of the Jiri-Imphal rail line has been pegged at Rs 2714 crores, will have 22 tunnels 93 small bridges, 51 big bridges while the distance between Jiri and Tupul is put at 94 kms and Tupul to Imphal at 24 kms.

Human Rights Watch Calls for Aid to Burma Refugees in India

Rights group, Human Rights Watch, is calling for India to provide access to the United Nations to assist up to 100,000 Burmese ethnic Chin who have fled persecution and poverty in Burma. Human Rights Watch accuses Burma's military government of wide-ranging rights abuses in Chin state.

A Human Rights Watch report is calling for Burma's military, known as the Tatmadaw, to halt ongoing human rights abuses against the ethnic Chin - a largely Christian community living in western Burma.

The three-year investigation of those who had fled persecution and are living in India, Thailand, and Malaysia said Burma's military regularly imprisoned ethnic Chin to stifle political dissent.

Chin state is one of Burma's most remote and poorest regions, bordering India's Mizoram State. Official access to the border regions in Mizoram is restricted by the Indian authorities.

Report researcher and writer Amy Alexander says abuses by Burma's military had gone largely under reported.

"Human Rights Watch has documented widespread killings, arbitrary arrests and detention, torture and mistreatment, forced labor, reprisals against the opposition, restrictions on movement, freedom of expression and religious freedom, as well as extortion and confiscation of personal property," she said.

Cases cited included those of political prisoners, their hands tied, being hung from ceilings and beaten with sticks. Later cloths were placed over their faces and they were dunked into water until they lost consciousness.

Over the years up to 100,000 Chin have fled into India's Mizoram state, where they are at risk of discrimination and abuse by local groups and deportation to Burma. A campaign in 2003 lead to 10,000 Chin being sent back to Burma. Human Rights Watch says those people who are sent back often face detention and even death.

Human Rights Watch Senior Researcher Sara Colm said about 4,000 Chin have trekked 1,600 kilometers to New Delhi to seek refugee status.

"We have people fleeing really repressive human rights situations in Burma to India and there is no access to them by the UNHCR," she said. "We are calling today for pressure to be brought to bear on the Indian government to allow United Nations officials access to the border regions of Burma on a permanent basis and not force asylum seekers to have to make the long trek down to New Delhi."

The director of the Chin Human Rights Organization, Salai Bawi Lian Mang, welcomed the report.

"I hope it will mark a great impact and it shows how serious the situation in Burma is," he said. "In Chin State people suffer religious persecution - 90 percent of Chin is Christian and then the Burmese Government has been systematically persecuting Chin Christian for the past two decades."

The report called for the Association of South East Asian Nations, European Union, and the United States to increase pressure on Burma to improve humanitarian assistance to the Chin.
