Modi’s act of repealing Agriculture Acts is again an act of authoritarianism

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Repeal of the three Agriculture Acts by Prime Minister Modi is again an act of authoritarianism and it has not given back the people the environment of politicians-people partnership in nation building. The legislation was an act of autocratic imposition on Parliamentary wisdom and deletion thereof is not based on democratic vision.

On December 12,2020, I had suggested that the laws where the farmers find their doom should be repealed and the Government should pay heed to advice that any legislation imposed in autocratic manner would be viewed as harmful in a monstrous manner to democracy.

It is good that the PM has finally realized the fault.

But responsibility needs be fixed for willfully putting the country in such an unprecedented chaos for such a very long period that gave India the unfathomable sorrows of unnecessary death of so many farmers.

To whom this idea had come first needs be determined to find who was the wretched agent of the Dracula that was eager to drink the farmers’ blood.

Speaker must ask the CM to remain in the Assembly or recommend the Governor to dissolve it

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Orissa Assembly has become a place of partnership in privileged hooliganism. Members of all the non-Communist parties have reduced it to condition of no legislative business. In absence of debating environment Guillotine replaces application of informed legislative minds, as has been happened on December 08 in matter of demands of two key departments like Home and General Administration & PG.

The Speaker has expressed his helplessness in controlling the situation.

But what happens to the Leader of the House – the Chief Minister?

His physical presence in the Assembly might have changed the situation. There is grave allegation against his closest ministerial colleague in the department of Home. He is dutybound to tell the House how he takes the matter.

Whether or not he is required to present himself in the Assembly in such a very unprecedented unruly situation should be settled through a ruling from the Speaker. If the Speaker fails to conduct the House and the Chief Minister doesn’t feel it essential to remain physically present to lead the Assembly, it would be proper for the Speaker to inform the Governor and to seek its dissolution, notwithstanding how the agitated members feel.

The farce must end.

Subjecting the Assembly into acts of fundamentalism is a crime the non-communist opposition have committed in Orissa

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The Orissa Assembly is not functioning for the last four days, as both the non-communist opposition parties – the Congress and the BJP – have been playing tricks to transform this rampart of democracy into a hub of Hindu fundamentalism, hands in glove with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

Home (State) Minister of Orissa Divyashankar Mishra is involved with murder of a lady teacher of his area, they allege.

Hence, they have been demanding his resignation.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has paid no heed.

This being the time of Panchayat elections, both of these parties of opposition are eager to take advantage of the situation, even as the BJD supremo refuses to succumb to their demand, for reasons best known to himself.

Mishra’s unexplained delay in reacting to the allegation hurled at him has made the general public believe that he is guilty and thus the opposition attack has gained ground.

Here comes the conspiracy against the people, the three parties on the playground – BJP, Congress and BJD – together or hands in each-other’s gloves, have cooked up.

The BJP used cow-dungs and water of the Ganges to purify the Assembly premises yesterday, as, according to them, Mishra, the alleged perpetrator of the felony, ruined the sanctity of the august house by entered into its premises to attend the session. Today, the same act of Hindu fundamentalism was executed by the Congress. Naveen Patnaik, supremo of the BJD, who is being marked for his massive involvement in fomenting Hindu fundamentalism in management of temple-systems including that of Buddha, known as Sri Jagannath, has been shrewdly helping BJP and Congress to convince the people that cow-dung and gangajal (water of the Ganges) are the components that can emancipate them more manifestly than the constitutional provisions. In order to help them go ahead with this design, he is retaining Mishra in the ministry, even though, as is his wont, he should have been dismissed since long, when media had started zooming in on him.

Idiots do not understand this shrewd game.

Naveen’s deathblow to Oriya Language -3

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Orissa has a Chief Minister in Naveen Patnaik who has caused a Cabinet scam to keep Oriya Language disused in administration.

This Book depicts in details the legislative misconduct of the Chief Minister.

Official documents have been rightly used to show how legally approved draft Bills have been replaced by Sri Patnaik with unauthorized drafts in order only to kill the very purpose of the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954, as he has no ability to repeal the same .

The contents of the book shall serially be published here, in cause of Orissa.

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 →
