Panel for overhauling of NRHM project
http://igovernment.in/site/panel-overhauling-nrhm-project-39519

The Public Accounts Committee in its report presented to Parliament
has suggested complete reprisal and re-structuring of the project

Published on 03/25/2011

New Delhi: The implementation of the National Rural Health Mission
(NRHM) came under sharp attack from a parliamentary committee, with
the Health Ministry being asked to carry out a "complete re-appraisal
and restructuring" of the project.

In its report on the NRHM presented to Parliament, the Public Accounts
Committee (PAC) headed by Murli Manohar Joshi also lamented that the
government's expenditure on public health was merely 1.1 per cent of
the GDP.

An "appalled" PAC also noted that the per capita expenditure in India
on public health was still worse at US $7, even less than that of
neighbouring Sri Lanka at US $30.

"It is a joke on rural health," Joshi said at a media interaction on
the state of the NRHM scheme, which was started in April 2005 with the
objective of providing "accessible, affordable and effective" public
health care facilities in rural India.

The PAC, in its report, said it was dismayed to note that health
centres at various levels were being used as foodgrain godowns,
community halls, local offices or cow sheds in many of the 18 states
where the NRHM is being implemented.

It said the health centres also lacked necessary infrastructure,
doctors, medical supplies and trained health workers, reports IANS.

"The committee apprehended that the goal of universal health care to
all the citizens as envisaged in the mission may remain a pious
platitude and a distant dream unless the budgetary outlays for the
NRHM for both the terminal year of 11th plan and for the 12th plan
period are scaled up significantly commensurate with the problem," it
added.

The PAC also recommended that the Department of Ayush should be
converted into a full-fledged ministry and for the promotion of
indigenous systems of medicine such as ayurveda, unani, siddha,
naturopathy, homeopathy and yoga in rural areas.

It also emphasised the formulation of a five-year special plan for the
Ayush Department to encourage cultivation of herbal medicines for
domestic consumption and export.

The Indian subsidiary of Turkey-based Fernas Construction Company Inc
has bagged a Rs 300 crore pipeline project crore from the Indian Oil
Corporation (IOCL) in Orissa and hopes to complete it by July 2012.
The project involves laying pipelines between IOCL's jetty and the
upcoming refinery near the port town of Paradip in the district of
Jagatsinghpur, about 120 km from here.


Bhubaneswar: The Indian subsidiary of Turkey-based Fernas Construction
Company Inc has bagged a Rs 300 crore pipeline project crore from the
Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) in Orissa and hopes to complete it by
July 2012.

The project involves laying pipelines between IOCL's jetty and the
upcoming refinery near the port town of Paradip in the district of
Jagatsinghpur, about 120 km from here.

"Work (for the pipeline project) has already started, with Fernas
having started its engineering and mobilisation of various resources,"
Fernas CEO Rohit Singhal said.

"The scheduled time for the completion of the project is July 2012 and
Fernas with its strong project management skills is confident to
complete the project on schedule time," he said.

This is Fernas' first project in Orissa. It recently executed a 365 km
pipeline for transporting natural gas in central India —the Dahej-
Vijaipur gas pipeline for GAIL (India) estimated for Rs 450 crore.

Fernas group is a diversified global conglomerate providing integrated
engineering, procurement, project management, and construction
services in oil and gas, infrastructure and petrochemicals sectors.

Fernas has sizable number of projects spread across five continents
and is working in more than 16 countries all over the world.

As Congress solidifies its hold on power, it will come closer to its
goal of forming the government without Left/Communist support, will
grow more confident, and we could see more scope for progress on
issues we care deeply about, such as economic reform, and possibly
Iraq.

record is a partial extract of the original cable. The full text of
the original cable is not available.

" "S E C R E T SECTION 01 OF 07 NEW DELHI 000909 SIPDIS E.O. 12958:
DECL: 02/03/2015

TAGS: PREL, PGOV, ECON, ETRD, EAID, MARR, MOPS, KPKO, XD, IN, External
Political Relations

SUBJECT: INDIA: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES IN 2005

Classified By: Ambassador David C. Mulford, Reason 1.5 (B,D)

1. (S) Summary: With political momentum in its favor, the United
Progressive Alliance (UPA) expects to solidify its hold on power in
2005. The Congress-led coalition's pursuit of closer US-India ties
will continue unabated, but the exigencies of coalition government
will slow progress on issues of importance to the US. While committed
to economic reform, the GOI and the UPA leadership will not move too
quickly, so as not to lose support of the Left, which backs the UPA
from the outside and opposes most forms of economic liberalization.
Although there have been no dramatic Composite Dialogue breakthroughs,
we will encourage Manmohan Singh to inject new momentum into Indo-Pak
relations as former PM Vajpayee did on several occasions. The recent
tsunami tragedy resulted in an unprecedented degree of SIPDIS civilian
and military coordination between the USG and India to deliver
immediate relief to Sri Lanka and Indonesia. We hope the successful
outcome of the January 30 elections in Iraq will afford us a new
chance to push India to expand its thus far disappointing engagement
in Iraq. Institutionalizing GOI progress on Trafficking in Persons and
encouraging sustained, concrete high level action and funding on HIV/
AIDS also will be major Mission priorities. End Summary.

Internal Politics

-----------------

2. (C) In the eight months since his unexpected victory in the May
parliamentary elections, former Finance Minister Manmohan Singh
steadily consolidated his position as the ""accidental PM."" The BJP
and its allies have been stuck in a tailspin following a series of
electoral defeats, characterized by public spats between BJP leaders,
as well as between party moderates and Hindu nationalists.

3. (C) Domestic politics returned to the fore after the disastrous
tsunami that hit India at the end of 2004 momentarily diverted
attention away from political affairs. India's response to the tsunami
was to deter outside direct assistance and material to demonstrate
that it could deal with its own internal tragedy while at the same
time making a strong statement of regional leadership by providing
assistance to Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Indonesia. In early
February, India will hold elections in Haryana, Jharkhand, and Bihar,
the only state polls scheduled for 2005. These will be major contests
for the BJP and its National Democratic Alliance (NDA), which must
halt if not reverse their string of election defeats to remain viable.
We expect the UPA will retain control in Bihar, while likely unseating
the BJP in Jharkhand and a regional party in Haryana. That outcome
could exacerbate the rift between the BJP's centrist coalition
builders and hard line Hindu nationalists. The budget session of
parliament, which is set to begin on February 25, will demonstrate
whether Congress can overcome opposition from its Leftist allies to
implement economic reforms, while fulfilling the populist promises of
the Common Minimum Program (CMP). On January 3, India's National
Security Advisor JN Dixit died suddenly, and was succeeded by Senior
Advisor NK Narayanan. The process raised questions about the role and
relevance of the office of the NSA, which has played a major positive
role in the growing US-India relationship.

4. (C) By the end of 2005 it will become apparent whether Congress and
its UPA allies have solidified their hold on power. If the BJP/NDA
does badly in the three state contests in February, Congress could
convince some secular parties to leave the NDA alliance and cross over
to the UPA. This could also increase factionalism within the BJP,
fueling speculation of a split within the Sangh Parivar. If the BJP
does not resolve its leadership issues and end infighting within its
middle-tier leadership, its decline could deepen. As Congress grows
more confident, it could demand a greater role within the UPA and in
states where it rules in coalition with regional parties -- we have
already seen this trend in Maharashtra, where Congress successfully
held out for the Chief Ministership. Congress will continue to build
strength in the crucial state of Uttar Pradesh (UP) and could use
growing law and order problems to invoke governor's rule and bring on
a new election in an attempt to unseat the regional party in power
there. Although some Congress leaders would like to call new
parliamentary elections to gain an absolute UPA majority and end its
dependence on the troublesome Left parties, this is not likely to
happen in 2005. Local elections in J&K will mark the first time in 27
years that Kashmir residents will choose their neighborhood leaders.
We will continue pressure for New Delhi-Srinagar dialogue; an outcome
that may become more likely after

Congress takes control of the Chief Ministership in the fall.

Indo-Pak

--------

5. (S/NF) when viewed in comparison to 2002/2003, India's relations
with Islamabad have improved significantly. The LOC cease-fire, which
reached its first anniversary on November 26, 2004, has qualitatively
improved the lives of Kashmiris. The Home and Defense Ministries
reported drops in infiltration rates and violence from Kashmir-
oriented terrorist groups, attributing this progress to the fencing of
major sections of the LOC, and the cease-fire that permitted fence
construction to proceed. The two rounds of the Composite Dialogue took
place without rancor and recrimination, and there was incremental
progress on counter terrorism, nuclear CBMs and counternarcotics
cooperation. On the margins of the UNGA, the PM told Musharraf his
views on Kashmir: India will discuss it, but will not agree to a
second partition based on religion or a redrawing of the Indo-Pak
boundaries. We will quietly encourage PM Singh to follow the example
of former PM Vajpayee and intervene to propose fresh initiatives when
talks between the two bureaucracies bog down, particularly since the
politics of Indo-Pak relations have swung in favor of greater
rapprochement here.

6. (C) New Delhi appears content with the current pace of engagement
with Islamabad, and is clearly interested in trying to erase the
""trust deficit"" by increasing bilateral trade and people-to-people
contacts. It is unclear how long talks will continue absent
deliverables, and observers are divided over how much to credit
""process in the absence of progress."" If terrorist violence in
Kashmir and infiltration across the LOC continues, even at lower
levels, a major attack during the year could compel an Indian
response. Growing Indo-Pak goodwill generated over the past year has
raised the threshold for military action, but GOI tolerance is not
infinite, and the first three weeks of 2005 already saw two suicide
attacks on government officers in Srinagar. The GOI has taken a low-
key approach to Islamabad's decision to bring the Baglihar dispute to
third-party arbitration, believing that the facts and the treaty are
on its side. While Baglihar is unlikely to disrupt the bilateral
dialog on other issues, it looms over the February 6-7 SAARC summit
and FM Natwar Singh's mid-February visit to Islamabad and could sour
otherwise cordial Indo-Pak atmospherics. Musharraf's January 15
statement that the GOP would not move forward on CBMs until
differences over the proposed Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus have been
overcome further complicated Kashmir dialog. The Pakistan cricket team
is scheduled to play a series of test matches in India from February
through March, which should result in some of the same goodwill seen
in the 2004 test series in Pakistan.

NSSP

----

7. (S) In completing Phase One of the Next Steps in Strategic
Partnership (NSSP) in September, the UPA succeeded in doing what the
previous NDA government would not, and provided assurances regarding
non-diversion of technology to the US that it later reaffirmed on the
floor of parliament. Phase Two of the NSSP requires intensive efforts
by the GOI to introduce national legislation governing technology
transfer, and commit to adhere to MTCR and NSG guidelines. The GOI is
especially keen to see some flexibility on the parameters for
cooperation on civil nuclear safety issues, warning that without
progress on that front, the scientific establishment will hold back
advancements on other NSSP. Officials in India's nuclear agencies have
become outspokenly opposed to strengthening export controls, in the
belief that the NSSP will not benefit them. The GOI remains supportive
of US goals on international non-proliferation, and is frustrated that
we have not seen fit either to bring India into the core group of the
Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI), or disband the Core Group
altogether. The GOI has also signaled its intention to join the
Container Security Initiative and plans to send a team to Washington
in late February to agree on a way forward.

Military Relations

------------------

8. (C) The Indian military has embarked on an ambitious modernization
program starting with revising its Army doctrine, procuring cutting-
edge equipment and technology to enhance its capabilities, and
conducting joint and combined exercises with an expanding number of
partners. The Army also considered changing its counterinsurgency
methods, converting more battalions to Special Forces units, and
increasing use of precision munitions and information warfare. An
ambitious schedule of US-India joint military exercises, including the
largest such event to date off the Indian coast in October, enhanced
US-India mil-mil ties and paved the way for better relations in other
areas. These efforts laid the groundwork for unprecedented cooperation
between the US and India in tsunami relief. A US decision to move
ahead with an F-16 sale to Pakistan, and the subsequent political
fallout, however, would endanger US hopes for a breakthrough arms sale
to India in the near future.

9. (C) The Indian Air Force has extended the deadline for the US to
submit a bid on 126 multi-role fighter aircraft to replace India's
aging MiG fleet. This represents the best opportunity we have had in
years to cap three years of successful exercises and other military
engagement with a decision to seriously compete in India's annual $14
billion defense market and demonstrate our confidence in the 21st
century partnership that the President's NSSP initiative embodies.
(Note: The USG has not yet responded to the Indian offer). Whether the
US participates in this tender or not, it will have a competitive
presence at India's annual air show (Aero-India) in mid-February.
Later in February, the GOI is expected to receive a classified
briefing on the PAC-2 missile defense system, followed by an initial
exploratory meeting for a future missile defense and command post
exercise.

Economic Outlook

----------------

10. (SBU) During his first seven months as PM Manmohan Singh signaled
his intention to keep market-oriented reforms moving forward. He
assembled several like-minded reformers around him, including Finance
Minister Chidambaram and Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission
Montek Singh Ahluwalia. Collectively, they charted the course on
future economic policy and were able and knowledgeable interlocutors
in our bilateral Economic Dialogue. This capable team faced
significant political obstacles from the Left in its attempts to
advance economic reforms outlined in the ""Common Minimum Program
(CMP).""

11. (C) Finance Minister Chidambaram submitted a Mid-Year Review to
Parliament on December 13 concerning the state of the economy after
the first six months of the fiscal year (April 1 - September 30). The
document lowers the prediction for GDP growth to ""6 percent-plus""
for the full fiscal year, indicating that the budget deficit target
may slip, and flagged higher inflation. However, the Review addressed
several economic reforms that correspond closely with our own mid-term
economic and commercial strategy and our ongoing engagement with the
GOI. It envisions the roll out on April 1 of the value-added tax
(VAT), calls for reducing federal subsidies, highlights infrastructure
development, and urges liberalizing FDI. The document also hints at
opening up the now-closed retail sector to FDI as a means of creating
an ""integrated common market"" for agricultural products. It is not
certain, however, that the PM and his team can sell these reforms to
Parliament, and especially to the Left.

12. (SBU) Because of leftist opposition, labor law reform and the
privatization of most state-owned companies appear to be off the
table, although the GOI may proceed with limited asset sales that do
not reduce government ownership below 50 percent of equity. The Left
has historically opposed most forms of FDI; attacking GOI plans to
raise FDI caps on telecom companies (74 percent from 49 percent), and
insurance (49 percent from 26 percent). Its posture has put it in
conflict with PM Singh's ambitious goal of attracting $150 billion in
FDI for infrastructure development in the next 10 years. Singh has
publicly acknowledged that the UPA must still win over the Left on
FDI. With this as a political backdrop, economic reform will likely
move forward on an ad-hoc basis. Issues that have popular support,
like reducing bureaucratic red tape and simplifying the tax code, will
move forward. Nonetheless, some observers believe that a general
compromise is slowly being forged behind the scenes, with the Left
giving tacit assent for liberalizing FDI regulations and proceeding
with a new patent law, in exchange for a strong government commitment
to rural development and a rural jobs program. Meanwhile, the GOI has
agreed to sign with us its first ever Open Skies Agreement. Mission
looks forward to Secretary Mineta's late March visit here to sign the
Agreement.

Iraq

----

13. (C) The GOI expressed high-level interest in providing training
and other material assistance for Iraq's January 30 elections.
However, it was hamstrung by its policy barring Indian citizens from
going to Iraq and by strong Left party opposition against any
involvement until a democratically-elected governments takes the
reigns in Baghdad. GOI support for the January polls was limited to
the $10 million it had already committed to the UN Trust Fund.
Although frustrated by lack of access to decision-makers in Baghdad,
poor information flow, and absence of response to its offers of
assistance, New Delhi says it is committed to playing a larger role in
subsequent Iraqi polls scheduled later in 2005. A very positive GOI
statement following the January 30 elections was drafted with
Washington in mind, and we will encourage a GOI effort to get back
into the game of Iraq reconstruction and political reform.

Regional Engagement

-------------------

14. (C) India's ""Look East"" policy and PM Singh's personal interest
in pursuing close economic ties with Southeast Asia, as well as
India's vision of itself as a balance to China, ensures that New Delhi
will continue to pay close attention to ASEAN for economic as well as
strategic reasons. At the 2004 ASEAN Plus One Summit, the PM committed
India to free trade with parts of the organization by the distant
deadline of 2011, with no indication of concrete steps towards that
goal in 2005. Initially opposed to an East Asia Summit on the grounds
that there already exists an ASEAN Plus Three (ASEAN plus Japan,
Korea, China), the MEA has recently indicated that if invited, India
will participate.

15. (C) Progress on SAFTA (South Asia Free Trade Area) negotiations
leading up to the planned January 2006 implementation date will be a
principal focus for SAARC in 2005. Although the MEA has outlined an
ambitious plan for SAFTA negotiations, aimed at having an agreement
for member ratification by July 2005, India has generally preferred
bilateral tracks for liberalized trade. Within South Asia India has an
FTA with Sri Lanka, a de facto one with both Nepal and Bhutan, and is
in the very early stages of discussion with Bangladesh, leaving out
only Pakistan. Uncertainty about the PM's attendance at the February
SAARC Summit in Dhaka reflected continued difficulty in the GOI-GOB
relationship, and genuine Indian concerns about the security situation
there.

16. (C) Bangladesh: Press reports indicate that PM Singh may not
attend the SAARC summit in Dhaka, which was to be the site of the
first bilateral meeting between PM Singh and Bangladeshi PM Khaleda
Zia. Should such a meeting take place, it would give a much-needed
goodwill boost to India-Bangladesh relations early in the year.
However, one meeting is unlikely to resolve continuing New Delhi's
frustration over what it sees as Dhaka's complicit support for
Northeastern insurgent groups. Economics may provide some positive
impetus to the relationship. In early January the petroleum and
natural resources ministers of India, Bangladesh and Burma met in
Rangoon and agreed to proceed with an oil and gas pipeline from Burma
through Bangladesh. New Delhi's response to Dhaka's request for access
through India for hydroelectricity and goods from Nepal and Bhutan
will set the tone for progress on the pipeline. In late 2004, the MEA
expressed to us some optimism regarding the Tata Corporation's
proposed USD two billion investment in Bangladesh. However, without
Bangladeshi acknowledgment of Indian concerns about support for
Northeastern militants, the relationship will likely remain uneasy.
Mission will continue to encourage real information sharing towards US-
India CT cooperation on the India-Bangladesh border.

17. (C) China: India's engagement with China is likely to maintain its
upward trajectory in 2005. China will continue to figure prominently
in New Delhi's foreign policy calculus, as India continues its ascent
to regional and global power status, and seeks opportunities in
rapidly expanding Sino-Indian trade. Both countries conducted a first-
ever strategic dialogue on January 24, further broadening the scope of
India-China diplomatic interaction. The discussions, led by Foreign
Secretary Shyam Saran and Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei,
included an exchange of views on terrorism, non-proliferation, energy
security, UN reform, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, and North Korea. Border
talks are also likely to continue, although four rounds of discussions
have yielded few concrete results, and the demise of NSA Dixit --
India's China negotiator -- reduces the prospects of diplomatic
innovation. Lingering suspicions and lack of trust will remain
obstacles to the bilateral relationship on the Indian side, especially
as New Delhi views with concern the PLA's military build-up on the
Tibetan plateau and in Burma, and Beijing's strong relationship with
Pakistan.

18. (C) Nepal: The February 1 dismissal of the government by King
Gyanendra complicated the India-Nepal relationship. While the GOI
described the incident as a ""serious setback"" to the cause of
democracy and reaffirmed its support for Nepal's political parties,
early indications are that it will take a cautious approach, so as to
not to encourage Nepal's on-going Maoist insurgency. The GOI remains
committed to do ""whatever is necessary"" to help Nepal defeat the
Maoists, and does not want the security situation there to deteriorate
further. The king's actions will further strain his already testy
relationship with New Delhi. Shared concerns about the political
crisis and the Maoist insurgency will continue to provide
opportunities for greater US-India dialogue and collaboration, taking
advantage of New Delhi's influence and insight into political dynamics
in Kathmandu.

19. (C) Afghanistan: India welcomed President Karzai's re-election and
expressed a desire for successful Afghan Parliamentary elections. With
India's policy towards Afghanistan moving to the post-Bonn phase, the
GOI is currently looking at the next phase of reconstruction projects,
which represent India's largest aid program anywhere.

Trafficking in Persons

----------------------

20. (C) Initially placed on Tier II in the 2002 Trafficking in Persons
(TIP) certification baseline survey, India slipped to the Tier II
Special Watch List in 2004 for failing to demonstrate increased
central government law enforcement response to its huge trafficking
problem and inadequate local prosecutions in Mumbai and Calcutta. The
US subsequently presented the GOI with a list of suggested actions,
including: A) creating and empowering a national anti-TIP coordinator;
B) designating and empowering a national anti-trafficking law
enforcement agency; C) encouraging state governments, particularly
Maharashtra and West Bengal, to increase significantly the number of
trafficking-related prosecutions and convictions; D) implementing the
1998 National Plan of Action; E) strengthening national anti-
trafficking law and F) increasing public awareness of trafficking.
Failure to demonstrate progress on this agenda could result in India
slipping to Tier III in the 2005 TIP certification process, and the
imposition of sanctions. GOI, NGO and private sector contacts admit
that India is deficient in TIP law enforcement, but argue that Tier
III placement could be highly counterproductive to USG/GOI relations,
particularly to anti-TIP cooperation.

21. (C) While the previous government virtually refused to discuss the
TIP issue, the UPA administration has been open to exploring greater
anti-TIP cooperation. The MEA Joint Secretary (Americas), and the
Secretary of the Department of

SIPDIS Women and Child Development (DWCD) have been very pro-active.
Strong Embassy efforts at the highest levels are bearing fruit. The
GOI has made significant movement on virtually every issue except
designating and empowering a national anti-trafficking law enforcement
agency. The GOI argues that since India's constitution enshrines law
enforcement as a state issue, it cannot directly enforce national laws
(including anti-TIP laws) at the state level.

22. (C) We understand that the DWDC Secretary will be appointed as the
nodal interagency TIP coordinator and that she will chair an
interagency meeting on February 4 to agree on a forward strategy that
is expected to include acceptance of U.S. training to improve law
enforcement, particularly in areas the U.S. has identified as weak,
i.e., Goa and Mumbai. In any case, USG/GOI anti-TIP cooperation will
continue to be a high Mission priority.

Social Issues

-------------

23. (U) HIV/AIDS in India is at a critical stage. With at least 5.1
million people infected, the number of people living with the disease
is second only to South Africa. The epidemic initially surfaced in
urban areas, but is showing clear signs of spreading to the
countryside. In response, the GOI has increased its HIV/AIDS
activities, especially in advocacy and awareness creation. Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh will head the GOI's National Council on AIDS
and play a critical role in expanding HIV/AIDS activities in India.
The GOI is also reviewing its HIV/AIDS program including current
prevalence estimates. These are encouraging signs but more needs to be
done, especially to reduce the stigma associated with the disease. In
addition, the GOI needs to increase significantly its own committment
of resources to make HIV/AIDS treatment more affordable. Expanding USG
assistance to India on HIV/AIDS and encouraging increased GOI
financing will be major focuses of the Mission this coming year.

Comment

-------

24. (C) US-India relations are increasingly dynamic, firmly on track
and further improvement is all but inevitable. There are few major
impediments that could change or halt this trajectory, although a
clash over Iran sanctions or a US decision to sell F-16's to Pakistan
would inevitably detract from the pace. As Congress solidifies its
hold on power, it will come closer to its goal of forming the
government without Left/Communist support, will grow more confident,
and we could see more scope for progress on issues we care deeply
about, such as economic reform, and possibly Iraq. A perception of
slackening US pressure on the issue of terrorist infiltration from
Pakistan could diminish India's confidence in the US as a neutral
observer in the Indo-Pak equation. The GOI would like normal relations
with Pakistan, so that New Delhi can better focus its attention
outside the region and on economic growth, but we do not expect a
dramatic improvement in ties with Islamabad in the coming year, or
dramatic innovation in the Indian approach to Kashmir. Although this
process will likely continue into the future, regardless of who is in
power in New Delhi, its speed and the scope of its development will be
influenced by the political quality of our relationship. Minimize
considered.

[socialactionfoundationforequity:13657 Prime Minister - Plight of New Age Freedom Fighters (#NAFFs) - Role of Intelligence Bureau during the visit of Dr Manmohan Singh to Ahmedabad on 26th March 2011..

Buzz It
Dr Manmohan Singh,
Prime Minister,
GOI, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

This has reference to my on going suggestions & public grievances, made during the last about nine years to the President of India, the Prime Minister and other high ranking dignitaries by the undersigned statutorily declared Whistle Blower, RTI user & PIL Petitioner making sincere efforts to contribute towards the improvement in corporate governance of the country. Specific reference is made to the following.


Reference No.1:

Majority of these communications, primarily through by emails & sent from my ID vaghelabd@yahoo.com / vaghelabd@gmail.com are in public domain on Internet and at following Social Groups on Google & Yahoo -











Reference No. 2:

Media News:
IB, RAW refuse to part with information on human rights violations
The country's intelligence agencies — RAW and Intelligence Bureau — have refused to make public the information on cases related to human rights violation and corruption against their personnel though the RTI Act states otherwise. Interestingly, both the agencies wrongfully cited section 24 of the RTI Act for denial of response to the petitioner. http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/article506074.ece



Reference No. 3:

Letter dated 29th January 2009 of PG PMO, written after detailed personal discussions in the subject matter by me, directing to Chairman Indian Oil to form Transfer & Promotion Policies & implement Supreme Court Judgment in Dev Dutt case on removing confidentiality in Performance Rating to Govt & PSU Employees. 

With no follow up by PM Office / Administrative Ministry MOP&NG / CVC for the last more than two years, Chairman IOC continues to ignore instructions of the Prime Minister Officer and continues to indulge in secrecy in working; arbitrary organisational decision making; corrupt practices & corruption creating strong resentment among the IOC Officers compelling them to seek legal recourse knocking the doors of Supreme Court of India.  



Reference No. 4:

Prime Minister : Please direct Director CBI to act . CBI is at liberty to take legal action against me if irregularities by Mr B M Bansal Acting Chairman not there...

Neither PMO nor CVC nor CBI is taking any action on high level corruption on appointment of Dealers involving IOC annual Business ex-Panipat Refinery of nearly Rs 15000 Crore to protect Mr Bansal.



Reference No. 5:

My message to you dated 20th March 2011 in connection with the following forty two reminder messages on serious irregularities committed & continuing by IIM with passive support of the Prime Minister Office / Union HRD Minister & Central Vigilance Commission.

Prime Minister : Continuing Weekly Reminder No. FORTY TWO of 190810 to Mr Satish Deodhar IIM Ahmedabad : After letter dated 11th Feb 2010 and second letter dated 12th May 2010 from HRD GOI New Delhi. http://groups.google.com/group/right-to-information-act-2005/browse_frm/thread/7a1c438d725bf642

This led to my PIL in the matter in Gujarat High Court that was dismissed on the ground of my not being connected to IIM (  http://bit.ly/9xsHFj ); Second PIL by Harsha Shettigar (Karnataka HC disposes CAT PIL, asks IIMs to rectify mistakeshttp://www.pagalguy.com/2010/06/karnataka-hc-disposes-cat-pil-asks-iims-to-rectify-mistakes/ ) and third on going PIL at Delhi High Court by the angry high scored IIM CAT passed students seeking admission at IIM but denied it even after scoring more than 99 prcentile in CAT 2010 (CAT applicants to take IIMs to court over new criteriahttp://articles.economictimes.indiatimes.com/2011-02-18/news/28615644_1_cat-results-iims-percentile).

In the meantime, CVO HRD GOI New Delhi continue to ignore CVC registered on 30th April 2008 my complaint in IIM matter and same thing happening with Mr Satish Deodhar, CAT 2009 Convenor, not redressing my public grievance despite letter dated 11th February 2010 from HRD GOI New Delhi & neither PMO nor CVC nor CBI taking any action though CBI had reportedly intervened in 2003 cancelling IIM CAT 2003 test due to serious irregularities. 

While there are umpteen no. of my registered complaints, that are entangled in bureaucratic red tapism, with PMO not at all intervening to stop the irregularities, corrupt practices and high level corruption & not reaching those public grievances to logical conclusion for years togather, Intelligence Bureau (IB) preferred to act on my message to you, in IIM matter, dated 20th March 2011 when you were to come to Ahmedabad to attend function at IIM Ahmedabad on 26th March 2011. 

Since afternoon of 25th March 2011 till your flight departure from Ahmedabad late evening on 26th March 2011, for nearly 30 Hrs, I was detained at local police station, as a preventive measure, on the perceived threat of Babubhai Vaghela to Dr Manmohan Singh Prime Minister. 

Notwithstanding the fact that during this period, as a person working on larger public issues concerning masses, this law abiding citizen got due respect from the concerned IB Officer; one IT Expert and the Police Officer as also the staff at the Police Station, I fail to understand the reluctance on the part of IB to act in a prudent manner while my Freedom of Movement was encroached upon ; my Freedom of Expression was curtailed and my privacy was invaded that too when the concerned IB Officer, on getting my candid & full co-operation, after going through my emails and after searching my Laptop for nearly 3-4 hours found nothing incriminating, that he conveyed me, and also confirmed to me that he did not doubt my personal integrity.  

That being the case, may I know in what way the undersigned  peace loving Sr Citizen of Ahmedabad was considered a threat to Dr Manmohan Singh Prime Minister during his visit to Ahmedabad?

If IB is really an Intelligence Bureau, I fail to understand as to why did the apex Agency not take any action for the last five years when I have written hundreds of messages to you and few thousand of emails on such issues are already available in public domain?  

Further, may I know whether IB is authorised to ask passwords of my Email Accounts & peep into my personal emails? Who is the IB Officer that Govt has empowered to do so? Or, did IB took permission from Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, GOI for this one?

Moreover, when by about 10 PM on 25th March 2011, the concerned IB Officer had completed the detailed discussions with me for about 3-4 Hours / thoroughly checked my Laptop from which I send emails, had completed the investigation & was also fully convinced that I was not a person of doubtful integrity, I would like to know what prevented IB from ensuring that I go home at that point of time honourably, with IB saying sorry to me for unwarranted harassment to me, & causing undue anxiety to my family members for the next 24 Hours?   

May I request that all my registered & legitimate complaints pending at IOC  / Ministry of Home Affairs / Ministry of Petroleum / Deptt of Public Enterprises / Ministry of HRD / Ministry of Corporate Affairs / CVC / CBI / NHRC / PMO and President Secretariat reach logical conclusion without further loss of time so that I am not compelled to send any email reminder hereafter? 

While concluding, may I also request categorical confirmation from your Office that effective measures have already been taken to stop repetition of what happened with me during 25th / 26th March 2011 anywhere in the country and also with other New Age Freedom Fighters (#NAFFs) whether RTI Users or Whistle Blowers of India making hectic sincere efforts to reduce irregularities, corrupt practices and corruption to make our country clean so that we live keeping our Heads High among the world community? 

With kind regards,

Mr. Sunil Arora

Deputy Registrar (Law)

National Human Rights Commission

Faridkot House

Copernicus Marg

New Delhi 110 001.

Dear Mr. Sunil Arora

Ref: Your notice No. NGO/NHRC/2011/FC dated 28.2.2011 summoning me to appear before the Commission on 29th March, 2011 at 11.00 AM – Regarding.

 

I am in receipt of your notice referred above, addressed to myself and 7 others.  I wish to bring to your kind attention that some of the members addressed in this notice, namely,  Mr. Abhay Shukla, Ms. Maja Daruwala along with me, are members of the National Core Group of NGOs of this Honourable Commission. To my knowledge there is nobody called Sri Bharat Chintan and in fact Bharat Chintan is an E.Mail group.  The person referred as Sri Ingrid Shrinath in serial No. 3 of the notice is the Secretary General of CIVICUS and she is actually Ms. Ingrid Shrinath and based in South Africa.  Sri Mohana Sundaram referred serial No. 7 is the Executive Assistant to Ms. Maja Daruwala, the Executive Director of Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI).

 

I wish to bring to your kind attention that I had addressed a letter to Mr. Money IAS with a copy to the Hon'ble Chairperson and Members of the Commission and copied it to the Members of the National Core Group of NGOs of the NHRC.  I had addressed the Honourable Commission on behalf of the Human Rights Defenders Alert - India of which I am the Honorary National Working Secretary. This was a letter to the Secretary General of the NHRC because the case of Dr. Binayak Sen, a human rights defender of international repute was to be heard on 24th of January, 2011 at Bilaspur in the State of Chattishgargh.

 

I also wish to bring to your kind attention a mail that was received by all of us in the National Core Group of NGOs of the NHRC on the 8th December, 2010 circulated to us by Ms. J.P. Meena, the Joint Secretary of the NHRC containing the statement of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Ms. Navi Pillay for Human Rights Day. In her letter she has expressed her deepest concern for Human Rights Defenders as follows, and it is important for us to read the same :

 

"We owe the progress we have made to the enormous efforts of hundreds of thousands of largely unsung heroes, known collectively as human rights defenders…..

We can all be human rights defenders, and ~ given how much we owe to others for the rights many of us now take for granted — we all should be human rights defenders. At the very least, we should do our utmost to support those who do defend human rights. Every year, thousands of human rights defenders are harassed, abused, unjustly jailed and murdered. That is why Human Rights Day 2010 is dedicated to Human Rights Defenders and their courageous battle to slop discrimination of all sorts. We need to stand up for their rights as much as they stand up for ours.

Some of those who are unjustly detained become the subject of international efforts to win their freedom. This spotlight can provide them with a significant measure of physical protection, even if it does not always win them a speedy release. But most of those detained by repressive authorities languish largely unnoticed in jails, under house arrest, in 're-education centres.' Often their families are targeted as well.

One important set of statistics is missing: we have no idea how many human rights defenders there are, or how many of them are intimidated, harassed, beaten up, jailed or killed each year. We have also failed to develop ways to measure their successes, which are often credited not to them but to the politicians or governments that finally listen to them or give in to their pressure. We need to do a much better job of defending our defenders.

The 21st century is witnessing the emergence of new economic and political forces, which, like others before them, will face the responsibility of promoting development at home and abroad while at the same time being held accountable for their actions. Human rights defenders will play a crucial role in this process, by pointing out flaws and benefits in current and future policies and actions. Yet, despite the benefits they bring to society, in some parts of the world they are facing increased harassment, persecution and restrictions on their activities, especially freedom of speech……."

In the last meeting of the National Core Group of NGOs of the NHRC, we the members had made it a point to bring it to the attention of the Honourable Commission of its statutory duty mandated under the Protection of Human Rights Act 1993 to intervene before the Courts using the provision of Sec. 12 (b) of the Protection of Human Rights Act. It is this mandatory responsibility on the part of the Honourable Commission of intervening in any proceeding involving any allegation of violation of human rights pending before a Court with the approval of such Court as contained U/S 12(b) of the Protection of Human Rights Act that we were respectfully reminding through our independent letters to this Honourable Commission.  This Honourable Commission, as a duly recognized National Human Rights Institution has, in addition, the duty to protect Human Rights Defenders.  The international and national human rights community have all been agitated that the norms and standards of fair trial that are to be followed in the Criminal Courts were not followed in the Trial Court at Raipur.  It is to be recalled that the members of the National Core Group of NGOs of the NHRC had even at the time of trial in the years 2009 and 2010, reminded the Honourable Commission to undertake certain interventions or trial observation of the trial of this case.  Now the matter is in appeal and it is the appellate Court which is hearing the appeal against the conviction of Dr. Binayak Sen .

 

In addition to the appeal, the Court is also hearing a bail petition that has already been filed.  Since this matter deals with a high profile Human Rights Defender of this country we were seeking the urgent intervention of this Honourable Court in the proceedings to  independently put forth its arguments supporting the release on bail of the Human Rights Defender in question.

 

In case this Honourable Commission is to come to the conclusion that it would not like to intervene before the concerned appellate court, it still could officially nominate its own representative of a very high ranking law officer to officially observe the proceedings in the Court.  This is also an opportunity for this Honourable Commission to demonstrate its commitment to the cause of Human Rights Defenders and hence we had made this appeal. 

 

But it is unfortunate that the appeal that has been made by us in our different capacities only reminding this Honourable Commission of its statutory responsibility, has now been converted into a "complaint" where we are "summoned". We wish the Honourable Commission to only respond to its statutory responsibility mandated under the Protection of Human Rights Act as well as the various mandates by the UN Human Rights Council and other UN bodies reminding National Human Rights Institutions of their role to protect and promote the rights of Human Rights Defenders.

 

In addition on the 29th March, 2011 I will be in Bangkok in a pre-fixed engagement attending the Executive Committee Meeting of Forum Asia, a regional human rights organization and therefore I wish that the Honourable Commission would understand my personal inability to be present before the Commission on that day.

 

I do hope that the matter is not adjourned to another date on the 29th . On  the contrary, when the matter ( Dr. Binayak Sen's application ) is to be heard now by the Supreme Court in the days to come, that the Honourable NHRC would be there to provide its own considered opinion to the Court.  It is such pro-active steps for the protection of the rights of Human Rights Defenders that the larger Human Rights Defenders Community in this country expects from the Honourable National Human Rights Commission at this juncture. We do hope that no further time is lost in such formalities of notices and responses and that the urgency is understood and Dr. Binayak Sen's  release is secured early and later his case thoroughly analysed and defended by the National Human Rights Commission, independent of his own criminal appeal. Let the country at large know that human rights defenders will also be simultaneously 'defended' by the NHRC of India for the costs they bear.

 

The opportunity to create a new jurisprudence for human rights defenders, a jurisprudence strongly in favor of HRDs, cannot wait any longer than now.  Let this historical opportunity not be missed by this Honourable Commission.

 

We do hope that you will acknowledge the receipt of this letter and ensure that it is formally placed before the Honourable Commission for their due consideration and positive action on the 29th of March, 2011.

Thanks and regards,                                                               

Yours sincerely,

(HENRI TIPHAGNE)
