I have not come to take salutes sitting in an air-conditioned office. I have come to take the salute of the masses: Mamata Accusing the Congress-led-United Progressive Alliance of engaging in “political vendetta” against the people of West Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee threatened here on Monday to head for New Delhi and lead a demonstration there if the Centre does not restructure the debts incurred during the Left Front regime, which the government is repaying.

“This is my last appeal. You [Centre] have to sort out this issue,” Ms. Banerjee said addressing at an extended general council meeting of the Trinamool Congress meeting here.

“If you don’t do that then I will forget that I am a Chief Minister. I am a commoner, I will go to Delhi and demonstrate there,” she said, adding that the only protocol she abides by is the “protocol of the masses”.

About one crore people from West Bengal and other States would participate in the protests to highlight the Trinamool Congress’s strength, Ms. Banerjee said.

“Remember, I have not come to take salutes sitting in an air-conditioned office. I have come to take the salute of the masses,” she added.

Underscoring the federal structure in the country, she said: “Just as you preside over the Central government, similarly we preside over the State government.”

She said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress had assured the State at a rally during the 2009 general election campaign that it would restructure debts if the Congress led-UPA government came to power.

“Did the Prime Minister not say at a rally in Dum Dum that the debt on the State will be restructured?” Ms. Banerjee asked party leaders.

“If you deduct all the money of the people [the State’s earnings] there will be protests a thousand times,” she said.

Exhorting the party workers in at the extended general council meeting to strengthen the party organisation in other States, the Trinamool Congress chairperson reiterated her ambitions to play a prominent role at the national politics.

“Today you are for Bengal. Tomorrow you will be for the rest of the country,” she told the leaders, adding that the Trinamool Congress would contest Lok Sabha polls from States other than West Bengal.

“The Trinamool Congress is a dedicated and transparent party… slowly try to extend party activities in your State,” she said, designating charge of certain States to prominent leaders of her party.

A Maoist leader was on Tuesday convicted by a court in Kandhamal district for the murder of senior VHP leader Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati and four others five years ago.

Additional Sessions Judge Rajendra Kumar Tosh held Pulari Rama Rao alias Uday, a Maoist leader from Andhra Pradesh, guilty for the murder of Laxmanananda and four of his disciples during Janmastami celebrations on August 23, 2008, at an ashram in Kandhamal district.

The court acquitted Somanath Dandasena for want of evidence.

The verdict came a day after seven persons were convicted by the court in the sensational murder case. The court will pronounce the quantum of punishment for all the eight convicts on October three.

The seven persons convicted on Monday were Gadanath Chalanseth, Bijaya Kumar Shyamseth, Buddha Nayak, Sanatan Badamajhi, Duryadhan Sunamajhi, Bhaskar Sunamajhi and Munda Badamajhi.

Besides murder and criminal conspiracy, they were convicted under provisions of IPC for offences including rioting with deadly weapons and unlawful assembly. They were also held guilty under several provisions of the Arms Act.

Out of the 13 accused in the case, nine were arrested while four are still at large.

The murder triggered communal violence leaving 37 dead and a large number of houses and places of worship damaged in Kandhamal district.

Continuing his attack on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said the people had lost faith in him.

Addressing a function here, the Chief Minister claimed he had been victimised by the Congress. “Congress has used its agencies to target me, whether it is the Central Bureau of Investigation or the Intelligence Bureau. The CBI can muzzle Mayawati and Mulayam but not me.”

He demanded the Congress to step aside for the BJP to take over the government at the Centre.

“It’s because the government is corrupt that the poor don’t have food to eat. The common man has had to suffer at the hands of the Congress governments at the Centre and the State[Maharashtra],” Mr. Modi added.

Congress suspends former Rajasthan minister

The Hindu Former Rajasthan Minister Babulal Nagar arrives for check-up at the Sawai Man Singh Government Hospital in Jaipur on Saturday. File photo: Rohit Jain Paras Former Rajasthan Minister of State for Dairy and Rural Industries Babu Lal Nagar was suspended from the Congress party over rape allegations levelled against him by a married woman, sources said Tuesday.

A first information report (FIR) was registered against Nagar at the Sodala police station here Sep 19.

Nagar, 53, resigned from the state ministry two days after the FIR was registered.

“The All India Congress Committee (AICC) issued direction regarding his suspension from the party as he was facing serious charges,” said a senior Congress leader in Rajasthan.

He said the Pradesh Congress Committee suspended Nagar late Monday evening in compliance of the directions.

The state government has also recommended a CBI probe into the case.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is likely to take up the case in the next couple of days, sources said.

Sources did not rule out the possibility of Nagar’s arrest soon after the CBI begins the investigation.

A medical examination was conducted on Nagar at the SMS Hospital here Saturday. Doctors took Nagar’s blood and semen samples to match the DNA with that of samples lifted from the woman’s clothes.

In her police complaint, the 35-year-old woman alleged that Nagar called her to his government residence on the pretext of giving her a government and raped her on September 11.

Besides Nagar, two other legislators of the ruling Congress party, Malkhan Singh and Mahipal Singh Maderna, were also suspended in December 2011 following allegations of sexual exploitation and murder of government nurse Bhanwari Devi.

I have not come to take salutes sitting in an air-conditioned office. I have come to take the salute of the masses: Mamata Accusing the Congress-led-United Progressive Alliance of engaging in “political vendetta” against the people of West Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee threatened here on Monday to head for New Delhi and lead a demonstration there if the Centre does not restructure the debts incurred during the Left Front regime, which the government is repaying.

“This is my last appeal. You [Centre] have to sort out this issue,” Ms. Banerjee said addressing at an extended general council meeting of the Trinamool Congress meeting here.

“If you don’t do that then I will forget that I am a Chief Minister. I am a commoner, I will go to Delhi and demonstrate there,” she said, adding that the only protocol she abides by is the “protocol of the masses”.

About one crore people from West Bengal and other States would participate in the protests to highlight the Trinamool Congress’s strength, Ms. Banerjee said.

“Remember, I have not come to take salutes sitting in an air-conditioned office. I have come to take the salute of the masses,” she added.

Underscoring the federal structure in the country, she said: “Just as you preside over the Central government, similarly we preside over the State government.”

She said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the Congress had assured the State at a rally during the 2009 general election campaign that it would restructure debts if the Congress led-UPA government came to power.

“Did the Prime Minister not say at a rally in Dum Dum that the debt on the State will be restructured?” Ms. Banerjee asked party leaders.

“If you deduct all the money of the people [the State’s earnings] there will be protests a thousand times,” she said.

Exhorting the party workers in at the extended general council meeting to strengthen the party organisation in other States, the Trinamool Congress chairperson reiterated her ambitions to play a prominent role at the national politics.

“Today you are for Bengal. Tomorrow you will be for the rest of the country,” she told the leaders, adding that the Trinamool Congress would contest Lok Sabha polls from States other than West Bengal.

“The Trinamool Congress is a dedicated and transparent party… slowly try to extend party activities in your State,” she said, designating charge of certain States to prominent leaders of her party.

MP govt. cracks down on environment activists in Sidhi

The Hindu Protesters perform Jal Satyagraha. Hardly a fortnight after the Madhya Pradesh government scuttled the Jal Satyagraha against submergence by dams, it has again come down hard on activists in Sidhi protesting the diversion of forest land for a cement factory. File photo Hardly a fortnight after the Madhya Pradesh government scuttled the Jal Satyagraha against submergence by dams, it has again come down hard on activists in Sidhi protesting the diversion of forest land for a cement factory. On the intervening night of September 30 and October 1, 22 protestors in Sidhi district were arrested for attempting to burn effigies of the district administration and Jaypee Cement. They were sent to prison for a fortnight after refusing to sign bonds that they would not protest.

A local NGO Toko-Roko-Thoko Krantikari Morcha (TRTKM) found out through an RTI response that 525 acres in the Kaimor Hills had been allotted to Jaypee Cement for quarrying. The area is close to the Sanjay Gandhi Tiger Reserve and it is in this range that the White Tiger was discovered in 1950.

“We did not know that the forest will be cleared as there was no public hearing or any environment report shown to us. We started meeting local revenue and forest officials from August 16, but they said everything is legal,” a protestor told this paper.

On August 20, women symbolically tied rakhis to trees in the forest. After much protest, the villagers say they were assured by additional collector Anil Khare and Divisional Forest Officer RB Sharma on September 20, that work would be stalled until Jaypee and the government hold an awareness camp in Pipraon village

“On September 26, bulldozers started clearing up the forest to show it is wasteland. It was futile to picket as there were too many police. Three villagers Rajesh Pandey, Harishankar
