MadhuJanata would be the vociferous part of Bhasha Andolan

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

There is a section of people in Orissa known as Biju Janata. Another section is  Modi Janata (Mr. Narendra Modi being the synonym of Bharatiya Janata Party). Yet another segment is Sonia Janata (notwithstanding who presently leads, Sonia Gandhi being its de facto controller).

The rest of the people are MadhuJanata. On March 24, an organisation in the same name is launched. When Kala Pataka Abhijan (Black Flag Campaign) is the silent instrument of Bhasha Andolan, it shall be the vociferous organ.   

What this organ shall do, is spelt out in the video message placed below, delivered live in Facebook on March 25. 

 

Naveen no more, if Aparajita named the next CM!

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak
The political scenario in Orissa is getting murkier everyday with poll pundits failing to grasp why the expected coalition between BJP and BJD is not taking shape, even as the ranks and files of both the parties do not show any eagerness to reorient themselves to match the ethics of alliance.

BJD autocrat Naveen Patnaik has, in the meantime, taken stock of his party’s preparedness in a few Parliamentary constituencies. But more than helping his party’s electoral preparation, this exercise is viewed as a design to keep the morale of his files in tact.

BJD files are facing inclement climate in Orissa as people in general are visibly disillusioned with Naveen for his anti-Oriya attitude thanks to consistent BlackFlag Campaign (KalaPataka Abhijan) of Bhasha Andolan. The Oriyas have been silently watching how he has been deliberately contravening the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954 everyday in his discharge of official duties to the total disadvantage of the children of the soil. The have silently digested the ignominy of their Chief Minister resorting to Cabinet scam and forgery in amendment of this Act in order to obliterate the possibility of administration of Orissa in Oriya Language. Due to Naveen’s anglicised mentality, the splendid soil of the Oriyas has almost become a dominion of his Tamilian Rasputin, who was a mere public servant surviving on salary from the State Treasury yesterday, but because of Naveen’s mysterious weakness towards him, has become today the de facto ruler of the State.

The Oriyas  are eager to avenge. But to them, no alternative is available.

People have not pardoned the Congress, which, in reality, is guilty of rendering the aim of our Republic inconsequential by subjugating India to GATT-WTO and Nuke deal with USA. Its pro-USA economic policies had, in reality, defeated the  sovereign resolve WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA had adopted to constitute our country into a SOVERIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC.

In these pages we had portended doom for Congress, as we had sensed massive wrath in public against the stooges of USA like Manmohan Singh and his gang.   The Congress, despite Rahul Gandhi’s sincere endeavours, is yet not excused by the masses, particularly in Orissa. 

Communists are not in a position to form a Government in 2024. 

Hence the only alternative to Naveen raj appears to be the BJP, though their religious chauvinism is anathema to the cult of Jagannath that inherently controls the mindset of the “fine race” of Oriyas, who stand for liberal attitude to religion.

BJP is to do away with this defect in order to win the Oriya heart.

Perhaps it is taking time to project a CM candidate whose public image would not be found soiled with religious chauvinism. Such a candidate would be available to BJP in Ms. Aparajita Sarangi, presently member of Lok Sabha from Bhubaneswar,  who is marked for her adherence to administrative ethics than to upkeep places of worship, When she was Municipal Commissioner at Bhubaneswar, she had pressed bulldozers to demolish Hindu temples in different places of the City to free roads of obstacles. Hence, if she could be projected as the CM candidate, BJP may win in the special circumstances, notwithstanding aversion of general public to the party of profiteers.

In the circumstances, it can be safely predicted that discarding the coalition idea, if BJP fights alone with Ms. Aparajita Sarangi as its candidate for the post of CM, it would win the election for Orissa Assembly with corresponding success in Lok Sabha constituencies. 

BJP is no less a danger to Orissa than BJD

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

The ruling BJD led by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has pushed Orissa into deplorable debacle in every respect. When mindless mining has denuded the splendid land of its precious metals oblivious of the needs of the future generations, the State that had taken shape after long 66 years of revolt against British colonialists’ wrongful clubbing of Oriya speaking areas in the neighbourhood provinces belonging to rival tongues, is now facing severe threats to its geographical limits from the same neighbourhood provinces. Naveen is so very anti-Oriya, like his father, in his attitude that, he has not only been contravening the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954 everyday during his tenure, but also has pushed the Act into atrophy by using fraudulence in its amendments. But, BJP is also no less a danger to Orissa. 

When in the early 1980s, people of Orissa, particularly of Sambalpur, had raised high pitched protests against price-rise, it was BJP under leadership of Vajpayee and Advani that had contrived a bogy of  victimisation of Marwaris by the Oriyas in order to compel the CM to take action against whosoever was leading the campaign against hoarding, black-marketing, price rise. As many as 14 students of Burla were brutally killed, as they were the pioneer of protest against price-rise.

It was BJP government in the Centre that had created the new State of Chhatishgarh without any consultation with Orissa, knowing pretty well that, Mahanadi, the life-line of Orissa, emanates from Chhatishgarh. Any industrial use of Mahanadi in Chhatishgarh was bound to affect Orissa very adversely and hence, before creation of Chhatishgarh, the Vajpayee Government should have consulted Orissa in the matter of Mahanadi. It deliberately didn’t. Resultantly, Orissa is in severe disadvantage.

The seed of separatism was sown by BJP in the western part of Orissa with a motive to catch votes in elections. 

Naturally, BJP has no commanding credibility in Orissa. Credibility of BJD is also conspicuous by its absence, Both the parties know this and therefore, their leaders, privy to the intelligence reports on their declining respective credibility, are trying to form an electoral alliance in the State. But their files do not support the idea of alliance, as contest would bring them bonanza of income from electioneering.   

Against this discernible reality, my live message to my friends in Facebook, is reposted in YouTube for my esteemed readers here.   

The State Assembly that never bothered about the State Language, died

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak
On February 9th, the 16th Orissa Legislative Assembly, that had shown no concern for governance of the State in the State Language, virtually died a premature death, helping Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik escape undiscussed and uncensored for forgery in the amendments of the Orissa Official Language Act, 1954 and for unauthorised expenditure in the so-called First World Oriya Language Conference. The session was programmed till 13th instant.

In the 15th Assembly Chief Minister had used fraudulence to amend the Official Language Act of Orissa. He had even obliterated the Cabinet decision dated 14 March 2018, which had finalised the draft amendment bill as per pencil vetting by the Law Department. He had taken away the legally prepared draft Bill from the Assembly file and  put a fabricated draft there, which eventually got approval of the Assembly on the 1st of May, 2018. Such fraudulence in Law making is never marked in any democracy anywhere. 

This legislative misconduct of the Chief Minister was brought to records with official documents in my two books namely Oriya Bhashaku Naveenanka Maranaaghata (Naveen’s Deathblow to Oriya Language) published in 2021 and Vartsaniya Bidhanasabha (Condemnable Assembly) published in 2022. The 16th Assembly being the sovereign house in action in these these two years and up to end of the last session on Friday, the Chief Minister should have been subjected to prosecution for breech of its privilege. But it never happened.

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 →
