HSRP:A method to test how far people bear with arbitrary administrative action

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Affixation of High Security Registration Plate (HSRP) on vehicles, with threat of heavy penalty to defaulters, is perhaps a method to test how far people bear with arbitrary administrative action.

The term ‘high security’ is not defined in Law and nobody knows how his/her vehicle would be secured by this high security registration plate. Vehicle owners have affixed registration plates in earmarked spaces of their respective vehicles. They have spent money for that. Why are they being forced to spend more money in these HSRPs?

Governments, both at the Center and in the States have not declared their own responsibility in respect to vehicles that comply with the HSRP order.

Affixation of registered number plate on a vehicle is controlled under Section 39 of the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988 that reads as follows:

“No person shall drive any motor vehicle and no owner of a motor vehicle shall cause or permit the vehicle to be driven in any public place or in any other place unless the vehicle is registered in accordance with this Chapter and the certificate of registration of the vehicle has not been suspended or cancelled and the vehicle carries a registration mark displayed in the prescribed manner.”

Thus, preparation and affixation of necessary plates to display registration number of the vehicles was the responsibility of owners thereof. This had allowed every vehicle owner to prepare his /her own number plate and affix the same in the vehicle. So, subjecting those vehicle owners to rush to a particular person / farm through electronic means to get a high security plate without knowing the scope and limit of high security and further subjecting them to a panic period generated by the threat of a menacing cash penalty is blatantly arbitrary.

Data in the high security plate would help in identifying a stolen vehicle, the government say. But they do not say what punishment shall be given to the officer who fails to retrieve the vehicle even after identification.

Government in a democracy mustn’t be a vehicle for intimidating the people with threat of cash punishment as is happening in HSRP matter that has retrospective effect.

NGO award to Naveen Patnaik should be enquired into

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak
Sycophants have congested Bhubaneswar roads as in thousands they are brought to the capital city to show strength of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to people who are crying to have their right to be administered in their mother tongue ORIYA.

Orissa has lost her mana in Naveenraj with her geographical boundaries as well as major river systems severely threaten by neighbouring provinces. Mr. Patnaik has never visited the border to stand with people, who are fighting for survival of their identity vis-a-vis the people of the rival tongues.

According to a none-contradicted confession of a treasury bench heavyweight in the Assembly, 93% people of Orissa do not understand English. But in Naveenraj, administration is working in English. People are kept in dark about how the government works. The Official Language Act, 1954 is being everyday violated by the CM and his team sans qualms.

Mr. Naveen Patnaik is marked for contravention of almost all the Acts enacted during his tenure as Chief Minister. He has even resorted to atrophy the Language Law by fraudulent means in order only to deny the people of Orissa their right to be governed in their State-Language.

There is not a single year within his tenure as Chief Minister when severe lapses in his governance is not reported by the Accountant General.

Yet a New Delhi based NGO styled Capital Foundation has conferred on him a dubious award under the pretense ‘Lifetime Achievement’. It seems the NGO has never verified the reality in Orissa and its study of Orissa scenario is absolutely superficial. This award given to Patnaik should be enquired into, as this is a design to mislead the people of Orissa that are perishing under his constant misrule.

Whenever Patnaik finds himself in political crisis and his public image appears comical even to his followers he feels, he cultivates such an award to dazzle the pewople of Orissa, a trick ETV in 2006 had trained him in.

The award in question is organised to hoodwink the people after his legislative misconduct was bared by the founder of Bhasha Andolan in his densely documented book Oriya Bhashaku Naveenanka MaranaAghata (Naveen’s deathblow to Oriya Language) and the Governor was moved to recall his assents to the amendments of Orissa Official Language Act, 1954.

Governor of Orissa urged to free himself from fraud in Official Language Act


The Founder of Bhasha Andolan, Orissa Sri Subhas Chandra Pattanayak has urged the State Governor to free himself from the evident fraud in the amendment of the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954. He had submitted details of the fraudulence to the Governor on 6.5.2022 requesting him to please use his inherent power to recall his assent to the amendments of the Act, “as they were created by forgery, treachery, and fraudulence as well as in absolute contravention of the Rules of Business.”

Here is the same.

The Governor’s Secretariate run by Govt. Staff has sent the same to Principal Secretary to Govt. in the department of GA&PG on 24.5.2022 VIDE No.3642, with an instruction “for taking needful action” at his end and intimate Sri Pattanayak the “action taken report”. This particular Officer is a party to the alleged fraud and he has not yet carried out the order of the Governor.

On this background, Sri Pattanayak has addressed another letter to the Governor urging him to apply his mind to the issue and “to ensure that Orissa is not administered under fake and fraudulently made legislation.

Illegal land grabbing by ruling party MP fraudulently regularized: Lokayukta’s stance lackadaisical

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

A vast area of 12 Acres of very precious public land in the Capital City of Orissa under illegal occupation of Achyut Samant, presently a ruling party MP, who runs an educational business styled KIIT, has been fraudulently regularised.Lokaykta’s stance against this engineered fraudulence is lackadaisical, it seems.

As a dutiful citizen, Orissa Sochana Adhikar Abhijan Chief, eminent RTI activist Pradip Pradhan had raised a dispute against this foul play in the shape of a complaint before the Lokayukta, Orissa vides Case No. LY322/2021.

“……we find no merit in the allegation of complaint that Achyuta Samant, founder of KIIT is in illegal occupation of 12 acres of land worth Rs.250 crores in collusion with the officials of GA & PG Department”, the Lokayukta has said while closing the complaint on 9.3.2022.

From the reply of the State Chief Secretary, the Lokayukta has quoted, “KIIT did enter into litigation with the Estate Officer against the Order of eviction and since many years have passed, the final outcome of litigation is not known.”

When the Chief Secretary of the State admits that the Estate Officer had issued an order to evict Samant from the land encroached by him, and the encroacher had “entered into litigation against the order of eviction”, the final outcome of which is not known, he indirectly confesses that the concerned file is suppressed or missing in the department. The Chief Secretary has bragged that the missing of the file is obvious, “since many years have passed.”

What a great Statement by a great State’s Chief Secretary before the great Lokayukta of the State!

The Chief Secretary has admitted that the eviction order was passed against Samant “many years” ago, but the “outcome” of Samant’s litigation against that eviction order “is not known.” Records in the Lokayukta show that the illegally occupied land in four plots was leased out to Samant on 27.12.2019 and two more plots on 22.1.2021 and 22.7.2021 one by one. This is enough to make one convinced that Samanta’s litigation against the eviction order still stands or had failed “many years” ago. The Chief Secretary is discernibly silent on the failure of Samant’s litigation against the eviction order, which strongly suggests that, despite knowing that a valid eviction order is standing against the land under Samant’s illegal occupation, he, by himself or under orders of ther Chief minister, has allowed the involved landed property of the people to the trespasser Achyut Samant, the Chief Minister’s close friend.

The shenanigans behind this transaction need to be investigated in the best interest of the State. Instead of closing the case lackadaisically, it would have been better for the Lokayukta to order an investigation into conspicuous corruption in this stage-managed lease and to initiate action against the Chief Secretary for not knowing the outcome of the eviction case.

It is sad to see that the purpose of Law is allowed by the Lokayukta to succumb to the imprudence of a Chief Secretary who sans any qualms declares that the “final outcome of the eviction case is not known.”

The Lokayukta should review its own order and let the people know when the final outcome of the eviction case against Achyut Samant was not known, how could the Chief Secretary allot the involved land to the alleged culprit.

Orissa Governor moved to take action against the Chief Minister for legislative misconduct

Founder of Bhasha Andolan Subhas Chandra Pattanayak has moved Orissa Governor to take action against the Chief Minister for his legislative misconduct, which has led to wrongful amendments to the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954. The Amendments were created through forgery, treachery, and fabrication and the Governor was misguided by false ‘Legal Certificates’ and ‘Administrative Certificates, to give assent to the Bills in question without knowing that those were products of fraudulence, he has alleged in his well-documented complaint.

Below is the copy of the complaint of Sri Pattanayak:

SCP to Orissa Governor

Oriya Language created Orissa and therefore Orissa must be ruled by Oriya Language

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik seems to have developed a wrong notion that governance of Orissa in Oriya depends upon his mercy. His press-note of December 17 and full page display advertisement in major broadsheets of today force us to arrive at this apprehension.

In his December 17 press note it was declared that he had held a meeting with the five members of the ministerial committee on that day for the purpose of “strictly implementing the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954 in official and non-official level” to facilitate which a website has been floated by the government. In the full page multi-color advertisement in broadsheet dailies today, this is intriguingly missing.

The advertisement is designed to tell the people that Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has taken historical steps to save and develop Oriya language, and has enumerated the steps he has taken. This is blatant lie. Neither he nor his government has executed any single item claimed to be “historical” in the official advertisement. The entire advertisement is nothing but false propaganda. What a shame it is, that, the people of Orissa are taken for granted by their Chief Minister! Read more →

Navakalevara: Legends and reality

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Legends are the most misguiding mischief aimed at superimposing lies on reality so that indigenous people of an occupied land are kept too dazzled to see the dark face of the rulers and the class of exploiters can keep its victims subjugated to its authority, while forcing them to forget the heroic history of evolution of their own philosophy of life, their own splendid spiritual realizations, their own socio-economic uniqueness, their own ancient culture, their own valorous past, their own way of social integration and their own civilization.

We see this mischief galore in the context of Navakalevara of SriJagannatha.

So, here, we are to rip apart the legends and bring the reality of the Navakalevara to light, as thereby alone we can reach the lost uniqueness of the people of Orissa.

We will use Puri Sankaracharya’s self-proclaimed authority over Navakalevara to proceed with our purpose.

Samaja in Maze of Forgery: Two former Ministers of Orissa – Lingaraj Mishra & Radhanath Rath forged the WILL of Gopabandhu; Both benefitted till their death; SoPS continues to Loot

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The Oriya daily SAMAJA founded by late Utkalmani Pandit Gopabandhu Das, to which, out of their love and reverence for the great humanitarian leader, the people of Orissa had and have been giving their financial and moral support, is in a menacing maze of forgery and loot.

Sadly, two of Gopabandhu’s trusted men – Lingaraj Mishra and Radhanath Rath – who, because of being known so, had the opportunity of becoming cabinet ministers in Orissa, were the masterminds and/or makers of the forgery from which the paper is yet to be salvaged.

Both of them – Lingaraj and Radhanath – had partnered with each other in forging the last WILL of Gopabandhu to grab the Samaja, which being Gopabandhu’s paper was of superb credibility and the greatest political instrument of the day. They had performed this crime behind the screen of and in nexus with Servants of the People Society (SoPS), of which, while breathing his last, Gopabandhu was the Vice-President. Read more →
