SPECIAL MENTIONS

CONCERN OVER ALARMING SCENARIO OF

ANAEMIC INFANTS AND PREGNANT MOTHERS

 

DR. GYAN PRAKASH PILANIA (RAJASTHAN): Sir, the latest National Family and Health Survey has revealed that nearly three-fourth of all infants between 6-35 months of age are anaemic in 19 States for which NFHS-3 data is available. Among all children up to 3 years age, over one-third are stunted (too short for their age) and more than one-sixth are wasted (too thin for their age). Two out of five children are underweight. For most of these infants, malnutrition would have started in the womb itself. This is apparent from the data on married and pregnant women. An astounding 54 per cent of pregnant women and nearly the same proportion of married women were found anaemic.

The number of pregnant women who are anaemic has jumped from about 49 per cent to over 54 per cent in the last five years. U.P., Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Karnataka, Gujarat and Assam, all have shockingly high proportions of anaemic infants - 80 per cent or above. In no State has the proportion fallen below 50 per cent.

In the light of above alarming scenario of poor reproductive and child health care, I would strongly urge the hon. Minister for Health and Family Welfare to undertake urgent corrective measures to save infancy and motherhood of India. Thank you. (Ends)

URGENT NEED TO ADDRESS POWER CRISIS IN MAHARASHTRA

 

SHRIMATI SUPRIYA SULE (MAHARASHTRA): Sir, the worst ever power crisis in Maharashtra has forced the State authorities to increase load shedding that stretches up to 14 hours in villages and three and a half hours to seven hours in sub-urban Mumbai and towns of Maharashtra. This decision caused violent protests in many parts of the State. Severe power shortage has caused investors to rethink of their projects in the State; and there is a fear of exodus of the existing units, which may move to hospitable States.

Sir, under the three-point formula that the State Government has prepared and worked out, the Centre would make available sufficient naphtha or high-speed diesel to independent power producers.

The State Government has also pointed out that these proactive measures from the Centre and the State would be able to get power immediately to handle the present situation in the State. If Central assistance is not provided, the power shortage would continue for some years.

I, therefore, urge upon the Central Government to implement the above mentioned proposal so that the State Government is in a position to meet the power crisis. Otherwise, the whole economy of the State will be seriously affected. (Ends)

ARM-TWISTING TACTICS AGAINST WHEAT FARMERS

SHRI SHARAD ANANTRAO JOSHI (MAHARASHTRA): Sir, through this Special Mention, I wish to bring to the notice of this House the tactics being adopted by the Government to deny wheat farmers the price that they would have otherwise obtained in an open market.

The Government has already announced a ban on the export of wheat, thus depressing the prices by discouraging the exporters to enter the market.

Further, the Centre has informally told, the top corporate which is in the country's wheat business, to refrain from purchasing grain in major growing regions like Punjab and Haryana during the upcoming procurement season.

It is also reported that the Railway authorities have been told not to accept wagon booking by organizations other than the Food Corporation of India.

Only last year, the Government had allowed the farmers to get reasonable prices by opening the market to private traders. The sudden reversal of the policy will discourage farmers from sowing wheat next year. This will worsen the position of foodgrains supplies in the country and the Government may have to resort to even larger import than in the last year.

These arm-twisting tactics can be counter-productive and the farmers may find alternate ways to reach the open market that may not be to the liking of the Government of India. (Ends)

CRISIS IN ADMISSIONS TO NURSERY SCHOOLS

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (RAJASTHAN): Sir, I rise to command the attention of this House to the prevailing crisis in different parts of the country in getting nursery admissions. It has been reported that the parents and their wards are being subjected to the tests and interactions against the prescribed rules. One wonders if such tests and interactions are based on scientific principals of pedagogy. Given the fact that in most of such schools, under-privileged children remain under-represented, there is a justifiable apprehension that such tests are only a mechanism to eliminate certain income groups. Such quarantining of young students violates the Constitutional Guarantee to provide free and compulsory education. With such segregation, the school education is loosing its egalitarian character that is vital for the social unity. The neighbourhood Government schools and charity-run educational institutions are not in a position to provide any alternative to such up-market schools due to utter lack of educational infrastructure and indifferent performance of their teaching staff. I call upon the Government to strengthen the educational infrastructure in these schools and to make their teaching staff accountable for the lack of curricular and co-curricular performance by the students. The score system proposed by the Ganguly Committee prescribed a new parentage-based caste system. Instead of enhancing the future prospects of every child, it will only perpetuate birth-based discrimination, and, therefore, must be replaced with a more transparent system of nursery admissions based on neighbourhood schools. The Government must ensure that scientific pedagogical principles should be applied in nursery admissions. (Ends)

DEMAND FOR ALL PARTY MEETING ON FINAL ORDER

OF CAUVERY WATER DISPUTES TRIBUNAL

 

SHRI JANARDHANA POOJARY (KARNATAKA): Sir, the following points concern the Final Award of the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal:

            The Award has caused injustice to Karnataka.

            It is in favour of Tamil Nadu.

            No Terms of Reference set before the Tribunal. A letter by the PWD Secretary of Tamil Nadu was the point of reference.

            Initial assessment was for allocation of 370 TMC of water to Karnataka as against 270 TMC awarded now.

            Final Award allocates a total about 600 TMC of water from the Cauvery River to Tamil Nadu as under (in TMC):

419 - Entire year.

10 - Environmental needs

21 - Out of 30 TMC allocated to Kerala until a

reservoir is built in Kerala.

25 - Biligundlu

125 - Ground water.

                  Environmental needs of only Tamil Nadu taken care of, not of Karnataka.

                  While Tamil Nadu is in a position to irrigate about 8000 acres per TMC, Karnataka can only irrigate about 5000 acres per TMC.

                  The Award is thus partial and shows undue favour to Tamil Nadu.

                  People of Karnataka rejected the Award.

                  Agitations spreading across Karnataka.

                  Apprehension of the agitation turning more aggressive and violent than it did during the interim award when 205 TMC of water was allocated to Tamil Nadu.

                  The violence then saw heavy loss of life and damage to properties worth crores of rupees.

 

To prevent escalation in violence, the Final Award should not

be notified. The Prime Minister should urgently call for a meeting of the concerned Chief Ministers to facilitate an amicable solution.

NEED TO UNDERTAKE URGENT REPAIR OF

BANGALORE-MANGALORE HIGHWAY

 

SHRI B.K. HARIPRASAD (KARNATAKA): Sir, the Highway connecting Bangalore with Mangalore providing year-round connectivity is riddled with pot-holes making movement of passenger vehicles and goods carriers highly risky on the ghat section.

Ore-laden trucks from Bellary, mostly overloaded, ply on this route, heading for Mangalore port causing pre-mature wear and tear to the road, necessitating continuous repair by the State PWD at enormous cost. Forming a part of port connectivity link provided for in the Golden Quadrilateral scheme connecting Bangalore with Mangalore port, the Centre needs to take up restoration of this highway by the NHAI and to ensure its upkeep by enforcement of regulations on over-laden carriers.

The recently commissioned BG link between Mangalore and Hassan is not fully operational, both for passenger trains and goods trains. This adds up to congestion and volume on road traffic between Bangalore and Mangalore.

I urge the Centre to take up early restoration of this vital stretch of highway linking the State capital to coastal area and allocate funds for its upkeep throughout the year. (Ends)

NEED FOR STRICT ADHERENCE OF SUPREME COURT'S GUIDELINES BY SCHOOL BUSES FERRYING SCHOOL CHILDREN.

 

SHRIMATI N.P. DURGA (AHDHRA PRADESH): Sir, these days the parents are always on tenterhooks till their children return home from schools, especially, when they are plying on school buses. Day-in-and-day-out, we have been observing bus accidents, carrying school children. It is not only buses, but even auto-rickshaws, vans and, boats at some places, are meeting with accidents. The recent boat tragedy in Kerala killing fifteen children and three teachers coming from Thattekad to Ernakulam, is another example.

So, looking at the danger involved and to rein in the errant bus drivers -- since in almost all the cases, the fault proved to be of the drivers -- the Supreme Court has prescribed elaborate guidelines to minimise the risk that school children ran while travelling in private buses hired by schools to ferry them. But these guidelines are observed more in breach than in practice. The Supreme Court said that drivers who have five years of heavy vehicle driving licence would be eligible to ferry school children. It had also fixed 40 KMPH speed limit for school buses, besides a series of preventive measures such as having first-aid box in bus, doors fitted with proper locks, fire extinguisher, apart from a supervisor to accompany children both while picking them for school and dropping them back at home. But these guidelines are not observed and, as a result, the safety of school children is always at stake.

Hence, I implore the Government of India to direct all State to strictly follow the Supreme Court's guidelines and punish errant drivers and schools, so that such punishment would work as deterrent to others. (Ends)

NEED TO RETAIN THE EXISTING FUNDINGPATTERN OF

SARVA SIKSHA ABHIYAN

 

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (WEST BENGAL): The Sarva Siksha Abhiyan Scheme was launched to universalize elementary education in a mission mode. The programme has a clear time-frame of providing elementary education for all children in the 6-14 age group by 2010. It is understood that the Planning Commission has proposed a change in the Centre-State funding pattern of the scheme from the existing 75:25 ratio to 50:50 ratio. The scheme is already behind schedule and there are problems and shortcomings noticed in the implementation at the ground level. Some States are lagging behind other States. The proposed change in the funding pattern would certainly jeopardize the efficacy of the scheme. It would also result in starving the scheme of adequate funds particularly when the actual disbursements to the implementing agencies are already short of the outlay planned. Therefore, I would strongly urge the Government of India to continue with the existing pattern of funding in the ratio of 75:25 so that the momentum that has been built in the last few years is maintained.

DEMAND FOR ADEQUATE NATIONAL FUND FOR

DEVELOPMENT OF BANGALORE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

---

SHRIMATI PREMA CARIAPPA (KARNATAKA): Sir, the construction of the Bangalore International Airport was planned to start by October 2002 and the airport was to become operational by 2005. This would have become India's first Greenfield, corporate, joint sector airport, built and managed to international standards. Government of India has been required to support the project from the proposed National Fund for Airport Development.

Construction of the airport has since commenced on 2.7.2005. It is likely to be commissioned by April 2008.

Following the amendment of the Airport Authority of India (AAI) Act, the Ministry of Civil Aviation is working out modalities for collecting the Advance Development Fee (ADF) by framing appropriate rules. The amendments to AAI Act of 1994 have been passed in both Houses of Parliament in 2003. In the light of this, Ministry of Civil Aviation has framed rules on ADF under the amended Act. But the modalities for passing on the fee collected would require rules to be framed by the Government of India.

Considering the demand, I request the Central Government to sanction and release adequate fund on priority basis for completion of this project at an early date. Thank you. (Ends)

STATEMENT RE. ASSASSINATION OF SHRI SUNIL KUMAR

MAHATO, MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT(LOK SABHA),

ON 4th MARCH, 2007

 

THE MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS (SHRI SHIVRAJ V. PATIL): Hon. Chairman, Sir, I rise, with a deep sense of grief and anguish, to inform the House of the tragic assassination of Shri Sunil Kumar Mahato, Hon. MP, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and two of his bodyguards and a local JMM leader at about 5.30 P.M. on 4th March, 2007 in village Baguria under Ghatshila Police Station of East Singhbhum district of Jharkhand State. Three other persons also received bullet injuries.

Hon. MP had gone there to witness a local level football match along with four security personnel of Jharkhand Armed Police and other JMM supporters. Armed assailants holding small arms and posing as villagers were present among the spectators. In a planned move, the naxalites numbering around 40-45 including women members, suddenly overpowered the bodyguards, snatched their weapons and fired at the Hon. MP and his bodyguards. The naxals took away four INSAS rifles and ammunition with them. According to initial reports, the assailants raised pro-naxalite slogans after the killings. Sir, this is a statement based on the information sent by the State Government.

Immediately after the receipt of information, police force from Ghatshila P.S. rushed to the place of occurrence. S.P. Purulia (in West Bengal) was contacted for sealing the nearby inter-state border. Combing operations on both sides of the border are in progress. Reinforcements from State Headquarters have been sent. DGP, Jharkhand and I.G. South Chotanagpur are camping at Jamshedpur to supervise anti naxal operations in the area. The State has been put on high alert.

Government of India condemns this inhuman and tragic incident. Hon. Minister of State (Shri Sriprakash Jaiswal) has visited the State and assured the State Administration that the Centre will provide all possible support and assistance. The Ministry of Home Affairs is maintaining a close watch on the situation.

The Central Government provides financial, technical and manpower-related assistance to the naxal affected states under various schemes of the Home Ministry.

(MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN in the Chair)

Under the Police Modernisation Scheme, Rs 182.72 crores has been provided to Jharkhand in the last six years. During the current year, a Special Grant of Rs 15 crores is being given to the State for purchase of telecommunication, weaponry and de-mining equipment. Jharkhand has been provided Rs 20.92 crore under the Security Related Expenditure (SRE) Scheme till date.

To address the issue on the Socio-economic front, under the Backward District Initiative (BDI) scheme, so far Rs 450 crores has been released to Jharkhand. The State has utilized Rs. 348.18 crore.

In addition, the State has been provided :

- 16 Armoured Vehicles

- 5 battalions of CRPF continuously for the last 3 years

- Sanction for three IR battalions has been given by the Centre. The State has raised one battalion till now. Central Government will provide Rs 20.75 crore per battalion against Rs 13 crore per battalion being provided earlier.

Under the SRE, till date Rs 218.52 crores have been disbursed to Naxal-affected States. Under this Scheme, reimbursement is given to the states for expenditure on ammunition, mobility for police personnel, rehabilitation of surrendered naxals, ex-gratia relief to killed civilians and security forces, insurance to security forces, etc. The total expenditure under Police Modernization is of the level of about Rs 4,000 crores since 2000-01. The Sashastra Seema BaI (SSB) has been deployed for providing security on Indo-Nepal border. Further, 33 battalions of CRPF have been provided to the naxal-affected States, which involves an expenditure of about Rs 1200 crores. CPMFs have also been directed to fill 40 % vacancies from youth of naxal-affected areas.

While the naxal problem in the country is of serious nature, combined efforts of the State and the Central Governments have shown some level of containment. Andhra Pradesh has achieved note-worthy success in controlling the problem through Special Forces, namely, Greyhounds and through other measures.

In the country as a whole, the incidents of naxal violence declined from 1608 in 2005 to 1509 in 2006, signifying a 6.15% decline.

The Central Government has also put in place, a strong mechanism for monitoring naxal activities and for evolving strategies to counter and closely address the problem.

However, we certainly need greater concerted and co-operative efforts between the States inter-se, as well as between the Centre and the States to achieve more acceptable results. We expect that the motivation and dedication of the State police, coupled with financial, technical support which includes equipment and manpower support from Government of India along with developmental programmes in naxal affected areas will have a significant impact on this problem.

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (RAJASTHAN): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, the situation in the country and the world has changed. Not only naxal violence, but all kinds of violence have increased.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please seek the clarification.

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: Sir, based on that only I am seeking a clarification. It is not because that my learned friend over there has mentioned about the Jharkhand MP, but I want to mention that whatever has happened is definitely a serious matter. But does it mean that only when this kind of situation happens and only from those States MPs are at risk? MPs are at risk all over the country. They have to travel to remote areas for their political activities. There is a risk at their residents also in Delhi. I would like to know from the hon. Minister, in view of this situation, whether he would like to consider that this kind of security should be given to the public men, either they are in Delhi or they are on tour in the country, because saying that Jharkhand is in trouble and not other places, is not really a true thing.

Then, Sir, he has mentioned that they have allotted Rs. 450 crores. But the State has utilized only Rs. 348 crores. Is it because of the stringent rules or was the State careless in utilizing the full amount? This point may also be clarified.

Then, Sir, will the hon. Minister like to make sure that some kind of police bandobast is made whenever MPs go for any kind of public function? The situation is such that 45 people come at a public place and not a single man is arrested, everybody runs away. That means it is a very serious matter. Will the hon. Minister look into it? (Ends)

SHRIMATI BRINDA KARAT (WEST BENGAL): Sir, on behalf of my party, I join this House in expressing our grief and anguish at this very brutal murder. We strongly condemn this murder and urge the Government to take steps to ensure that those who are responsible for this should be immediately caught and punished.

Sir, there are two or three issues which arise out of the Home Minister's statement on which I would like to seek clarification. We know that many of these areas are naxalite-infested and there are such activities, and when an MP who is under protection could be attacked in this fashion, the question arises whether our Intelligence gathering agencies are performing their duties, if there is a necessity to review that work, whether there has been any lag in the Intelligence information that either the State Government or Central Government is getting, which could permit such an incident to go on in this way. I would like the Home Minister to give a clarification on this issue.

Sir, I represent West Bengal. Many of our districts in West Bengal are neighbouring Jharkhand. I do not wish to go into the political aspect of it; many of my colleagues have spoken about the present State Government and I am not going into the political aspect of it, but during the last two or three years we have certainly seen many raids of naxalite groups coming in from Jharkhand and attacking our cadre in West Bengal. And it is a very politically motivated thing because these are people who have been fighting the naxalites along with the people in every possible political way. Therefore, they were targeted, and I can say it very clearly, as far as West Bengal is concerned, that there are retaliatory killings because we are confronting them politically. But the problem arises, Sir, that even now there are so many cases where those who are guilty have not been punished or have not been caught. That is because of this inter-border movement which is taking place, particularly from Jharkhand into West Bengal and back to Jharkhand.

In paragraph 13 of the statement, the Home Minister has said that they want greater concerted and cooperative efforts between States and between the Centre and the States. So, my question is, can we set up some kind of a permanent mechanism where these incidents are taking place and where there is cross-border movement of these naxalite groups? What role can the Central Government have to ensure whether there is cooperation or not among the States? We have to have a guarantee through a mechanism which would work regularly to ensure that such cooperation is there if there is no such cooperation. So, what does the Central Government have to say about it? Can we think of such a mechanism?

Lastly, I would like to express my deep condolences to the family and also to the two policemen who were killed in the course of performing their duty. Very often, we do express our solidarity and grief, but as time passes what is the plight of those families? What happens to their children? I think we need to be much more proactive on that. Therefore, I would like an assurance from the Home Minister as to the measures he is going to take to ensure that the families are adequately looked after by the Government. ` (Ends)

SHRI ARUN SHOURIE (UTTAR PRADESH): Mr. Chairman, Sir, it is a matter of very great sorrow that a tragedy like this causes change in the tone of the Government's statements. Sir, you will recall that on two occasions, there was a full debate on internal security and when I had given the details about the spread of naxalites and the figure of 165 Districts, which Bhandaryji has just now quoted, the Home Minister was pleased to say that the figures were misleading and the definition of 'Disturbed Districts' had to be changed. It was accordingly changed, and, from 165 Districts, suddenly, we came down to 72 Districts.

Sir, today it is a change in the Government's tone that today Andhra Pradesh is being complimented for 'Greyhounds'. When this debate took place exactly in this House and we pointed to the seriousness of the matter, 'Greyhounds have been put in closets', we were told here in this House that our Government was not afraid to talk. Sir, the same thing happened with ULFA because arrangements were made preceding these incidents and then the 'peace talks' in a sense were the time that was being given to them to reequip, rearm, retrain and recruit. Therefore, Sir, I have a suggestion in this regard. The Prime Minister himself has made a very important statement that this spread of Extreme Left Wing violence is the greatest threat to India's security today. For that reason, I think, it is misleading. As the Home Minister has rightly pointed out, it is not a sufficient index to say this much has been spent on police modernisation. (Contd. by sk-1z)

SK-AKA/1z/12.55

SHRI ARUN SHOURIE (CONTD.): Various Members have been pointing out what has happened to that. So, I would say that I had an occasion to meet the experts who were involved and the police officials who were involved in combating Naxalism in a gathering at Raipur, just about a month-and-a-half ago. They were very distressed on many counts in that way. So, I would suggest that we discuss this matter fully and the Home Minister would be kind enough to apprise the House about what exactly is happening in regard to modernisation of the police forces. Terrorists are also modernising. They are modernising at a much greater pace. Similarly, the Home Minister has been apprising us about the coordination meetings that he has been holding with Chief Ministers, with Home Ministers, and they, in turn, hold various kinds of meetings. But, what is the result? There is a much greater coordination among the terrorist groups operating in different places. You are right, today, they are being pushed. Because of the lunacy in the peace talks, they are now being pushed out of Andhra and they have begun their activities in Chhattisgarh and in Maharashtra. So, unless we get to know this, unless we get to know information about the links of different political groups of different so-called civil liberties organisations, we can't have a useful discussion. The Home Minister should take the House into confidence on what the intelligence agencies are telling him about different political parties.

And, finally, Sir, the point Brinda made that we always forget the sacrifices which the police and the military people made for the security of the country and after that they are arraigned in cases. This happened in Punjab. I know how difficult it was for them to get lawyers. They came to me to help them organise lawyers. So, Sir, my plea is: Don't let this incident also go in waste. Please have a full discussion in which the details behind the Minister's statement are made available to the House. Thank you. (Ends)
