Naxalism in Bastar : 50 year neglect

Princely India was known for its exploitative and oppressive nature but there was a prince who died at Police bullet when protesting for rights of his people . Not at the hand of British Police but our very own India police.

This happened 50 years back when Shri Dwarkaprasad Mishra known as Chankaya was CM of undivided MP and there were no NGOs or concept of human rights.

That day can be said the day when seeds of Naxalism were sown by state neglect and heavy handedness when someone tried to protest


MP no longer tiger state

Now Karnataka has largest number of tigers.
When Sartaj SIngh ( a honest minister after a long time) came to Indore and journalists asked him about this he said many places like (ralamandal - similar to Nandi hills in Bangalore) were missed out.

Dude accept that there has been a goof up , don't make laughable excuses.

Despite a 12 per cent rise in the population of big cats in the country, Madhya Pradesh popularly known as the ‘Tiger State’ witnessed a decline in their numbers resulting in loss of this coveted status to Karnataka, according to the latest tiger census report.

The big cat population has dropped to 257 in the latest tiger census from 300 tigers in 2006 in Madhya Pradesh.

“The decline in the tiger population in the State is mainly due to the loss of 24 tigers allegedly due to poaching in Panna tiger reserve which had as many striped animals in the year 2006,” a forest official told PTI today.

Efforts are underway to revive the big cat population in Panna. Three tigresses and a tiger had been translocated to it from others parks since last year and the exercise has seemed to pay off with two felines giving birth to five cubs last year.

The famous Kanha Tiger Reserve too had lost more than 25 tigers. In 2006, it had 89 tigers which had now dipped to 60, according to the latest census, he said.

Reports regarding tigers’ deaths had been trickling in from Kanha for more than two years. Forest officials contend that it was mainly due to territorial fights among them.

The 2006 tiger census report had recommended the State government that Kanha buffer zone needs to be extended South - West to increase the big cat habitat. This was implemented in toto, officials said.

Now, Karnataka has witnessed an increase of 10 tigers taking its big cat population to 300, according to the recent All India Tiger Estimation Exercise for 2010.

And MP, which is unhappy having lost the ‘tiger State’ tag, has shot off a letter to the Wildlife Institute of India (WII), in this regard.

“I am of view that the tiger population was more than what has come out in the latest big cat census given that we too have an internal mechanism to monitor striped animals, Principal Chief Conservator (Wildlife) H S Pabla said.

“Something has gone amiss. We have sent a letter requesting the WII to check their data base,” he said.

To press his point, Mr. Pabla said that there were 424 beats (areas having big cat) to monitor the tiger population in the state in 2006 which has risen to 495 now.

“This shows that there has been an increase in the tiger population in the State,” he added.

“The latest census report that the tiger population has gone down in Kanha too doesn’t appear to be correct as we send monthly reports to National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) on the number of tigers in the reserve,” Mr. Pabla said.

He said that their five reserves including Kanha were ranked high among the best managed reserves in the country.

The last tiger census report released on March 28 said that the stripped animal population has risen to 1,707 from 1,411 in 2006.

MP falls on Economic freedom index : No longer an investment friendly state??

This report shows that while in 2005 MP was ranked 2nd in 2009 it slipped to 6th. Despite the fact that it is second term of a government with even most of local bodies being under BJP control there is little political explanation for same.

Report says States with higher levels of economic freedom tended to perform
better across a range of economic variables. They also had higher levels of
in-migration, while states with the least economic freedom had higher
levels of out-migration.

SO true MP sees large scale outward migration of labour, be it workers from bundelkhand going to Punjab, from Dhar Jhabua to work in slate mines in Gujarat or educated youth from Indore Bhopal to Pune Gurgaon as so called "chanakya" of Indore politics who happen to be IT and industry minister of state has got his priorities set on capturing power and real estate and not on bringing industries into state.

On factor like size of government MP has fell from 14th to 17th rank clearly indicating increase in size of government faster than increase in FDI

A minor scam in Indore municipal corporation

After having a murder accused as chairperson for months,
paying crores to a private company for removing mud and earth instead of trash & waste
& distributing pension to ghosts and that to why shady cooperative banks
now IMC has surpassed its reputation in not closing accounts on 31st March so that contractor bills and claims can be accepted and entered on back date...

Basic organizational structure and check and balance are not working and all financial norms have been thrown into air.

Despite their all ills congressmen of Indore should be commended to discover this and bring it to public notice.

District with lowest literacy in India : Alirajpur

Provisional census results indicate that district with lowest literacy (37.22%) in India is not some hilly district or Bihar or UP district but Alirajpur in MP.


Despite the fact that DileepSingh Bhuria was long time chairman of national ST commission and Kantilala Bhuria is minister of ST in centre since last 8 years.

Is shivrajsing government aware of this shameful statistics?
