President of India ought to appreciate that Bharat Ratna is not meant for offenders like Biju Patnaik

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

If the President of India rises above being Pranab Mukherjee – the man who collaborated with Manmohan Singh to subjugate India to American hegemony – and acts as expected of India’s President, I am sure, he will reject the demand for Bharat Ratna to Biju Patnaik.

President of India, being the Supreme Commander of Indian military, is entitled to peruse the privy records of why India had to accept defeat in Chinese aggression and all reports of enquiry related thereto. Before granting the demand for Bharat Ratna to Biju Patnaik, if he does it, a new and grave offense against the country designed to be perpetrated with Bharat Ratna to Biju may not materialize. Will he do?

We find from ‘Himalayan Blunder’ of Brig. John Delvi that India lost more than 11000 square kilometers of her land to China in the 1962 war, because of lack of basic essentials like warm clothing, snow boots, and glasses.

From Lok Sabha Debates (V) (1967) [7980-7990], we find that we had to suffer this loss, because of the treachery of Biju Patnaik.

By misusing rapports with Jawaharlal Nehru, he had obtained a contract for his Kalinga Airlines (Airways) to airdrop basic essentials as enumerated by Brig. Delvi in the NEFA front for our soldiers.

But, instead of delivering the same to our soldiers, he had sold away all the the items in black-markets.

And, because of this treason of Biju Patnaik, our soldiers had lost their stamina to fight and we were in the worst of debacles after our independence.

We lost, over and above heavy loss of precious lives, around 12 thousand square kilometers of our land.

The President can get the military records on this treason for his perusal. He can go through the Katju Commission Report and all other reports and related files, which the country has been denied to go through, simply because, any action against Biju Patnaik could have also exposed Nehru’s favoritism and misrule.

By corrupting the government(s) in the center, Biju could avoid punishment. But that never means that he is acquitted of the offense of treason against the country.

To bestow upon him the highest civilian award Bharat Ratna would be the worst of offense against India.

I have discussed in my columns – Simhavalokana and Animadversion – elaborately on many occasions the offenses of Biju against the people and how people of Orissa, after electing him once as a matter of Hobson’s Choice. were rejecting him at least twice consecutively, to avenge his corrupt practices, compradorship, and misrule.

It is known to everybody that when he died, he was not in power, because, harassed by his misrule, people of Orissa had rejected his prayer for mandate.

To decorate the same Biju Patnaik with Bharat Ratna would be an insult to the collective wisdom of the people of Orissa, besides being official approval of the offense of treason he had committed against India in Chinese Aggression.

While challenging the President of India to deeply peruse the relevant records of our defeat in Chinese aggression, including corresponding debates of the Parliament, I am, for ready reference of the President, giving here the link to one of my write-ups in ORISSA MATTERS.

Let him peruse and decide, if it would be proper for awarding Biju Patnaik posthumously with Bharat Ratna.

This write-up should be treated as addressed also to the Prime Minister in national interest. The central government should refuse to entertain the request of the members of BJD owned by the son of the same Biju Patnaik, Which they have falsely described as Orissa Assembly’s resolution favoring Bharat Ratna to Biju, on the very ground, as discussed above, of his treason against the country in Chinese aggression as well as on the ground that a ruling party’s resolution in absence of Opposition cannot be the resolution of the “Assembly”.

The scheme of Bharat Ratna must no more be allowed to become a farce.

  1. Let the people of Odisha know the facts sir. I salute you for revealing the truth. Here see, Father-son duo spoiling our mother, mother-tongue and mother-land and it is disgrace we are giving them votes again and again only to fulfill our selfish end. we are following them for some money, some socalled power and prestige. But time will say sir how we are blacksheep and doing all wrong by supporting such nuisances! The sooner we open our eyes, the better. Let me cite an example of my own life; I was returning from Puri to Titilagarh with my family sir in Puri-Ajmir express last week of Dec 2014. At about 7AM the train reached at Balangir station. A chaiwala came and cried chai chai, my wife ordered one cup but the chai wala listen not and passed to another bogey. On return of the chaiwala, I cried in loud tone, Aee, chai de. He was just pouring the chai from kettle to cup, I enquired why he did not give chai when asked by my wife. He replied that since she was not telling in Hindi ,he did not give chai. I gor angry at that moment and told him that the train was running from Puri to Ajmir and in this sense it is a train of Odisha, One must knows Odia, the state official language if he wants to earn something here, or he should go away. The chaiwala silently returned back saying” hindi me nehin bolne se chai nehi dunga” and he didi not give tea. The days passed. Since then everyday I am giving him salute as because, he is absolutely right. But see me, I am giving all power of my state and everything to one who is not able to utter or say my own state official language. And he is Naveen Patnaik the son of Mr Biju Parnaik. Now we are demanding Bharat ratna to such person. Unfit father, unfit administrator, unfit for my own land. Still his son is enjoying veto power here. Thanks to the people of my Odisha and the men who are supporting him to fill up their sinful belly. The official language of Odisha is Odia as per language act 1954 sir, The language being used by Naveen patnaik is unconstitutional, unlawful and undemocratic. Let the ministers realize the facts soon. Let the Hon’ble Law Minister Mr
    Arun sahu, who has assured us on 8th July 2015 atr lowerPMG resign as he is unable to kept his promise and betray the people of odisha at large. If he resign on this ground Mr Arun Sahu would be the hero fo Odisha, sir. I am sure. Thanks sir, Namaskar..

  2. We are always with the people sir. We are always with the truth. We know this life has got no value, But we value the mother, mother-tongue, mother-land, the law and the consitution of India, democratic norms. we are here to sacrifice our lives for the sake of our land. kansa was killed by Krishna. Ravana was killed by Rama only for this..

  3. If Kalinga Airways formation and contract within 3 days of formation for military supply transport is a crime, then Nehru himself was bigger criminal who was waiting for the company to be formed so that he could award the contract. Nehru with blessing of Gandhi was main architect of India’s partition which caused killing of about 30 lakh Hindu/Sikhs in separated part called Pakistan and coming of 180 lakh Hindu refugees to India. If they were to be kept in India, why partition? This murder and refugees is largest in world history and any atrocity by Hitler, use of atom bomb, etc are negligible before it. Then, having the largest land army, Kashmir was not protected and deliberately kept separate from India under article 370 of Constitution. Not satisfied with largest genocide in world history, Tibet was handed over to China which killed about 30 lakh persons there and another 2 million came as refugees to India. If Tibet was not part of India, why its refugees accepted here? Plea was taken that not even a blade of grass grows there. Nehru could not have known this unless it was told by Chinese to give very small amount as bribe for handing over Tibet.
