Mr Ratnakar Gaikwad Should Pay Dues & show Ethics

The Mumbai Metropolitan Development Authority (MMRDA) led by Rahul Asthana has Wrote to chief secretary that Mr   Ratnakar  Gaikwad Should pay Dues which is use during his CS tenure. Gaikawad dues scam come in light after RTI plea.

MMRDA already issue a notice cum letter  to former commissioner and his predecessor Ratnakar Gaikwad asking him to pay dues worth over Rs 1,32,232  pending against him for the use of telephone, internet and gas connection facilities by him at his official residence.
Asthana-led MMRDA claims it had provided and paid for these services at Gaikwad's official residence for over a year even after he was transferred to Mantralaya as chief secretary.

An RTI query has revealed MMRDA had sent a notice cum letter to its former commissioner   Ratnakar Gaikwad asking him to pay total Rs 1.33 lakh dues against use of facilities usage for over a year between January 2011 and May 2012 at Jetwan, official residence of the MMRDA chief. Gaikwad is now the state information commissioner.

MMRDA said Gaikwad was not entitled to these facilities because he was the CS when he stayed in MMRDA's accommodation. Upon receiving the notice Gaikwad paid over Rs 15,500 against the phone bill but his present office as state information commissioner has now refused to pay the remaining amount, over Rs 1.15 lakh, saying he was also chief of MMRDA's executive committee, during his posting as CS.

After this high level misuse issue some top officers of UD dept trying to close this dues chapter and helpout Mr Gailkwad. The latest letter to chief secretary by  MMRDA refutes this claim saying the facility was not applicable to him as the CS. The letter clearly mention that MMRDA Act & under resolution no 1158 of 4 March 2010 of 240th Executive Committee, allows the MMRDA's new quarters free of rent and electricity only for metropolitan commissioner, joint metropolitan commissioner and additional metropolitan commissioner at their official quarters. Aastana also indicate that sanction benefit should give to Chief Secretary or Chairman of  Executive Committee is not clearly mention in resolution so its not permitted to  Chief Secretary or Chairman of  Executive Committee. In Past MMRDA not give any such type of benefit so if  allowed now then in future also we bound of that and  This could set a dangerous precedent.Now its duty of CM and some Top officers not to interfere in this Issue.Insted of appreciate MMRDA action some officers trying to close Gaikwad chapter. Now its good time to Mr Gakiwad to pay all dues and show his Ethics...

Nonsense Kerala CM Oommen Chandy

Respected Prime Minister,

 The Kerala Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy has asked the Centre to immediately consider releasing some detained Somali pirates to facilitate the release of seven Indian sailors being held captive for last two years. Taking up the issue with Shipping Minister G K Vasan and External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, Chandy expressed anguish over the delay in swapping of the Somali pirates lodged in Mumbai jails for the Indian hostages — a demand made by pirates in Somalia. “I don’t think there is no other way out to save the lives of Indians who have been held hostages since September 28, 2010. What is the use in keeping these pirates in our jails?” Chandy said here.

Its so nonsense demand by Chief Minister. He should learn lesson from Maharashtra government. Govt's duty is to see that how Indian Sailors bring back Safely and We think Indian Govt's are trying to do their duties well. Till 160 Sailors are release so  The Kerala Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy is baseless and shows his immaturity. So Govt's should  warn the Cheapness of The Kerala Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy and Take appreciated action.

Thanking you,

Kasab hanged what about others14, Dear Mr President,

1) The Hon'ble President of India,
New Delhi.

Sub : Kasab hanged what about others14, Dear Mr President,
Dear Mr President,

Finally one more Dangerous than Dengue fame Ajamal Kasab's name deleted from India’s list of pending mercy petitions. He was the only gunman who didn’t die during the 2008 attacks on Mumbai on 26 Nov.There are more Kasab's who's mercy petition till pending at President of India or Ministry of Home.The plea, which the president of India will review, might not trigger the debate that India needs to have about how long it takes to answer these pleas. The trouble is, it’s not complicated enough.

We urge to set up a fast track policy for disposal of such mercy petition, The Govt till not decide nor give simply single reply on my 29 Aug 2012 open letter to Prime Minister of India.The attacks scarred India and altered its dynamics with neighbour and perpetual sparring partner Pakistan. India maintains that the Mumbai attacks were carried out with assistance from Pakistani ‘state actors’.

Mercy petitions are more trouble in cases such as Afzal Guru and Balwant Singh Rajoana like 14.Sources said the Home Ministry had submitted Afzal Guru's case to the President's Secretarial for a decision on July 27, 2011 with the recommendation that the clemency petition should be rejected.Guru was convicted of conspiracy in December 13, 2001 Parliament attack and the order to sentence him to death was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2004. The sentence was scheduled to be carried out on October 20, 2006.Guru's execution was, however, stayed following a mercy petition filed by his wife. He remains on death row since then. Guru was convicted for his role in an attack on the Indian parliament in 2001, and sentenced to death in 2005. The president received his mercy plea in 2011. The government has been dithering over his petition, and Guru’s case could inflame passions in an already uneasy Kashmir. Perhaps the way to get politicians to think less about their interests and more about the nation’s interests is to amend the Indian Constitution. That way you can say that you’re just upholding the law of the land.Article 72, which allows India’s president to pardon people on death row, is vague.
Set a time during which convicts can file mercy petitions to the government. Maybe 1 month from the date of conviction. Make the Home Ministry adhere to a time limit to send recommendations to the president. Give the president a deadline too so convicts do not languish in jail.Anyone can file mercy petitions on behalf of convicts. Specify, at least to some extent, who is (or isn’t) eligible to file. Draw up guidelines. In short, be specific aout the process, but not so much so that there is no room for exceptional circumstances. Now it’s the time of tough decisions and reforms.

Yours Faithfully,

CM Prithviraj Chavan are surrender the Wadala Flat which means for Weaker Section

Mr Prithviraj Chavan 
Chief Minister of Maharastra,

Sub: After 2 Years till u not surrender CM quoto flat nor state govt respond my complaints reg same

First up all ,I will congratulate to u for successful 2 years tenor as a chief minister of Maharastra. When u sworn as a chief minister of Big state maharastra, that day Some media focus a flat issue which you owns at Bhakti Park,Wadala for a mere 4 lakh under CM's 5% quota for the poor in 2003. You bought a flat that was reserved for the poor in Venus building, Bhakti Park in Wadala.That time u assured that if their is any irregularity u may surrender the flat. But action fm your side till in pipe line.

As per doucment which through RTI revels that you bought a property meant for the weaker section of society, worth Rs 40 lakh in Wadala for a mere Rs 4 lakh,The documents reveal that you had stated his average monthly income as Rs 76,000 and was allotted the flat in Bhakti Park, building no 12, measuring 1032.7 sq ft on May 20, 2003.

That time you was an MP based in Delhi, had quoted your monthly income as Rs 76,000 in the application, the ration card copy issued in his late mother Pramilabai Dajisaheb Chavan's name showed the annual family income as just Rs 1 lakh.

However, for a family to fall under the weaker section the annual income should have been under Rs 1.5 lakh in 2003. But your income clearly was far more than that. Or You Shown yearly 76000 its may be an inquiry part bcz monthly income never shown in this quoto flat by any successor till last year. Secondly 
You also give this flat on lease which is violation of basic rule regulation. After Revels you cancel the said lease & now flat is fully vacant.

I am not against you nor any political interest. The only reason to file an RTI in December 2008 was to get the list of people who had obtained flats under the chief minister's quota. I had information about rampant misuse of the scheme to benefit certain people from well-to-do families depriving the rights of poor."
I got the list of beneficiaries since 1984 to Feb 2009, including names of journalists, freedom fighters, politicians, artists, etc." A person having an annual income under Rs 1.5 lakh can apply for a house under the weaker section of society chief minister's quota schemes. My complaints reg same are till pending in your kind office as well as UD department. No Action nor any specific reason reply send to me which is also basic violation of Citizen charter. 

Now your Mr Clean image has been put to the test. Its my humble request that pls act as a good gentleman & surrender the same flat & put a good message to society that even you as a chief minister is wrong,it will be rectify the wrong things & action should against your self also be initiated.


Yours Faithfully,

R CM Dare to take Return back prime plot Owned Gandhi Family Trust

from year 1983 continuesly by giving extension to Ms Associate  Journal ltd a plot around 3479.26 sq mt, a prime location plot at Bandra which now owns to Gandhi Family. This come light by RTI query. Athak Seva Sanghy demand  to Chief  MInister of Maharastra that cancel the lease & take back the prime location plot & construct a  Hostel for Schedule Cast Student which is  originally purpose in 1964 

Ms Associated Journal company that publishes National Herald and Quami Awaz was allotted a prime plot of land by the government of Maharashtra in suburban Mumbai, ostensibly for a press and a Nehru memorial library, neither of which was built. While a large part of the plot remains vacant after being allotted in 1983. State govt favor bcz its owns to Gandhi Family Trust even their is rule that if lease owner not develped the alloted plot within 2 years, Govt have power to took back the plot. But Govt always give priority & Revenue minister in 2001 arrange special meeting to help out the company though their is clear cut Collecter office report that the lease company violated the land rule & should pay around 3.77 cr rupess to govt. Interesting that One portion was parcelled off in 2000 to a housing society floated by Congressman Rajiv Chavan in which former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh is a member.IAS officer Jairaj Phatak, Swadhin Kstriaya,H K Jawale, Jt CP Himashu Roy,Kishore Gajbeye are also member of said society. This land, facing the Western Express Highway and a stone’s throw away from Bandra station, is now home to Sai Prasad Housing Society, home to Singh, Chavan and a bunch of top bureaucrats some of who already own other properties in the city and some others who are under the scanner in the Adarsh scam
We used the Right to Information Act to obtain details about the plot on which Sai Prasad building stands, has now written to chief minister Prithviraj Chavan demanding that Associated Journal Ltd’s land be taken back by the government. 
“The plot was given for daily news publication, a Nehru library and a research centre in 1983 but it is still as it is. The government should take the land back and build a hostel for students (Scheduled Caste) for which it was originally reserved,” Athak Seva Sangh letter dated November 2 says.

Not only did Associated Journals not construct the press building and library, but it also managed to obtain repeated extensions from the state government while continuing to hold on to the 30-year lease, which now expires next year. Also, sources said the company owes a sum of over Rs3.76 crore to the state government in unpaid lease rent.
When a part of the plot was allotted to Sai Prasad, Singh was guardian minister for the Mumbai suburban region.
“Will you as chief minister be able to initiate proceedings for the state government to reclaim land that is now under the control of Rahul Gandhi? There is a question about this,” We said in his letter. The company Young Indian, which now controls Associated Journals has its eye on the latter’s considerable real estate assets. Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are among the main shareholders of Young Indian.
