MATTERS RAISED WITH PERMISSION OF CHAIR.

RE. KILLING OF THIRTY SIX HINDI SPEAKING PEOPLE

IN ASSAM BY TERRORISTS

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Shri Santosh Bagrodia. You have three minutes.

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (RAJASTHAN): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, I thank you very much for allowing me to raise this matter. Sir, the problem of ULFA in Assam is there for more than two decades. Sometimes, it goes down; sometimes it goes up. But many other terrorists' organisations are also becoming active and the Government has to look into it. Recently, Sir, from August 05 to August 12, 2007, in Karbi Anglong District, 36 people were killed in one week and all of them were Hindi speaking people. Sir, in these killings, the ULFA and the Karbi Longri National Liberation Front had participated. According to the news, Sir, mostly Biharis were killed. Two Marwari businessmen, very small businessmen, having small businesses, were also killed. (Interruptions)

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHAYARA: Sir, he is saying...(Interruptions)...

SHRI DWIJENDRA NATH SHARMAH: Sir, Biharis have...(Interruptions)....

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: I have not completed. Let me complete. (Interruptions) What I am going to say, you do not know. (Interruptions) You do not know what I am going to say after this. (Interruptions) Let me complete. (Interruptions) Please let me complete.

Sir, most of them were Hindi speaking people in that area. But what I want to say is that, actually speaking, many local people were also killed during these years. I am not saying that they were not killed. But now I am confining myself to Karbi Anglong Hill District, where mostly Hindi speaking people were killed, and, out of which two Marwaris, though mostly Biharis, have been killed. I would like to mention here, Sir, that Shri Jyoti Prasad Aggarwal who died at the age of 47 in the sixties was known as Rabindra Nath Tagore of Assam. People from Rajasthan had gone to Assam. 150-200 ָ Even today, they go there, they mingle with the local people, they behave like local people, they dress like local people and they identify themselves with local people.

Sir, the entire country is one. People go from one place to another. I am very happy that these days, many young Assamese boys and girls are going to all parts of the country, even to Goa and remote areas in South India and they are doing good work. I welcome them. Like this, people have been coming to Assam also, to which the ordinary Assamese have no objection. The problem is due to the terrorists' activities. Sir, one more thing that I want to say is that Shri Jyoti Prasad Aggarwal brought the Assamese language into real reckoning. He was the first person who had written dramas, poems and many articles in Assamese language. He married an Assamese woman. What I am trying to say is that the country should not be divided by these terrorists' activities.

My friends are all supporters and I have nothing against them. They also want that these kinds of terrorist activities should not take place. Sir, the economic development of Assam is essential and only then the terrorist activities will go down. I strongly recommend to the Central Government that officers from the Central Government.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Nothing will go on record. (Interruptions) ֟

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: Sir, I strongly recommend that officers from the Central Government should be asked to visit the different North East States personally. They should not take decisions sitting here. That is why...(Interruptions)

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: Sir, recently the Assam Government has planned to deploy general force to fight ULFA. I request the Assam Government to do it very fast. The hon. Minister of State for Home, Government of India, has mentioned in one of the articles, which I read, "The NDA had a hand in encouraging the ULFA". ...(Interruptions)..

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Bagrodiaji you have to conclude it. ...(Interruptions)..

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: "Otherwise, how could the outlawed organisation become so active? It was not so strong earlier". ...(Interruptions).. Sir, this should have not happened. ...(Interruptions).. The Government has to make sure ...(Interruptions).. I request the NDA friends not to assist this kind of activities. ..(Interruptions).. Thank you.

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN (WEST BENGAL): Thank you, Mr. Deputy Chairman. Sir, the issue of gas pricing is a serious one. It is our natural resource, and it should be used in the national interest, and not to ensure windfall profit of the contractors, exploiting that natural resource. But the thing is moving in that direction, and that is why, there is an anxiety. Sir, the Petroleum Ministry's Committee has gone on record in the matter of pricing mechanism, where they have said that in the absence of market determined price through transparent weeding process, where valuation has to be done by the Government, it may be done, based on most recent competitively determined price, duly indexed to the present. Now, the debate and the dispute is that the most recent price is discovered through international competitive bidding and arranged by NTPC and the lowest quote was by the RIL-NIKKO combine at 2.34 dollar million btu.

(contd. by 1T)

MKS/MCM/12.30/1T

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN (CONTD.): That is the recent price, and that price of 2004, if indexed to the present, cannot ensure an 85 per cent hike, which the same contracting company is demanding from the Government for the KG Basin gas. Sir, the 2004-07 price can in no way justify an 85 per cent hike. And unfortunately, the kind of media expression that is coming as the reactions of different Government Departments, the Committee of Secretaries, etcetera, etcetera, is that they are inclined to accept that, asking for the moon by the concerned contracting company to fix the price of KG Basin at 4.33 dollar/mm btu at the well head. If this is agreed, and if this natural resource is allowed to be exploited to ensure windfall gain.... (Time Bell)... Please let me complete.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: I am just giving you the first bell so that you can complete.

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN: ....for some private contractor. This will totally frustrate the Planning Commission's decided perception of substituting it by a cleaner fuel to the major polluting sector, the power sector, the fertiliser sector, the transport sector and the domestic sector because just one dollar increase in its price will mean a 33 paise increase in the cost of power. So, this has got a serious implication.

And the last point relates to the basis of making a claim for 4.33 dollars. What is the basis? The claimant is putting linking the international prices of crude for fixing the price of natural gas which is produced from our soil. (Time Bell) Crude we are importing to the tune of 80 per cent from outside. The gas we are producing. For fixing the price of gas when... ...(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Mr. Tapan Kumar Sen, please conclude. ..(Interruptions)...

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Sir, this is a very serious matter.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: It is all right. But everybody has followed the rule. He should also follow the rule. ...(Interruptions)... He has no exception. ...(Interruptions)... Please sit down. ...(Interruptions)... Please conclude. ...(Interruptions)... Please conclude.

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN: Just one minute, Sir.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please conclude.

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN: Sir, we are......(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Everybody has followed the rule by taking three minutes. Why should he take more than that? ...(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: No, no; in Zero Hour you should learn to sum up in three minutes. ...(Interruptions)... Otherwise, you give notice under some other rule, and do not speak like this during the Zero Hour.

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN: Sir, I am concluding. I demand a full-fledged discussion in the House. Thank you, Sir. (Ends)

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA (JHARKHAND): Sir, the only point I would like to make here is that let the Government respond to that issue which has been raised in this House. ...(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: The Minister is not here. In Zero Hour, the Chair cannot compel the Government to respond.

SHRI TAPAN KUMAR SEN: I do not know why it has been accepted. ...(Interruptions)...

We have removed it from the rules. There is no rule for Zero Hour issues. In the rules, there is no Zero Hour, but still by convention, we are allowing you to raise matters of urgent public importance to just mention them. But if you want to have the response of the Government immediately, why do you give a notice under Zero Hour? You should ask for a discussion under any other rule. ...(Interruptions)...

RE. DEMAND FOR SAFE RETURN OF ANDHRA PRADESH LABOURERS STRANDED IN THE U.A.E. AND OTHER GULF COUNTRIES AND PROVIDING THEM EMPLOYMENT.

 

SHRI RAVULA CHANDRA SEKAR REDDY (ANDHRA PRADESH): Sir, I have been trying to raise this issue since 21st August. (Interruptions)... This is an urgent and important issue pertaining to the people of Andhra Pradesh. About two lakhs of people are now stranded in the UAE and other Gulf countries. The authorities in the UAE and other Gulf countries have decided to send the labourers back, and they have directed them to leave the country by September, 2007. The poor labourers had gone there in search of work and they were misled by agents. Now, they are stranded there. They are suffering from lack of facilities. Water connection and power connection to their colonies have been removed. They are worried. Their family members back home are in a panic situation. The State Government has miserably failed to protect the people and to make arrangements for their safe return to Andhra Pradesh. I demand, at least, the Government of India should intervene, see to it, if possible, that the cut-off date is extended and make necessary arrangements like chartered flights so that the people can come back safely. They don't have money to buy tickets. They don't have valid documents in their hands. They are with the agents. All their visas have expired and they are now worried about their well being in those countries. I demand that the Government of India should make necessary arrangements immediately for their safe return. This is one thing.

Secondly, if possible, the Government of India should talk to their counterparts in the UAE and other Gulf countries and see whether there is any possibility of extending the cut-off date.

The third demand is that on their return they should be provided employment. Otherwise, there is going to be a big problem in Andhra Pradesh. Most of these people belong to the Scheduled Castes, the Scheduled Tribes and other minority communities. They went there believing the agents and now they are in the clutches of the agents and have no valid documents. The plight of the people back home should also be considered on humanitarian grounds. Since the hon. Minister is present in this House, I request him to respond and help the people.

(Ends)

DR. K. KESHAVA RAO: Sir, the State Government... (Interruptions)... It is wrong. (Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Mr. Minister, would like to respond? (Interruptions)...

DR. K. KESHAVA RAO: Sri, the State Government is... (Interruptions)...

SHRI RAVULA CHANDRA SEKAR REDDY: Sir, I am expecting a reply from the hon. Minister. (Interruptions)... The hon. Minister is willing. (Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: The Minister wants to respond. (Interruptions)... No, no. The Minister wants to respond. (Interruptions)...

THE MINISTER OF OVERSEAS INDIAN AFFAIRS (SHRI VAYALAR RAVI): Sir, please don't bring politics into this. This is really a matter of concern for the Government and the people. I will try to explain. I have seen the report. Amnesty has been declared by the UAE and thereafter Kuwait and other countries also. We are in touch with them and the UAE Embassy, as well as, the Consulate General's office have been alerted. They have done a very good job, I should say. When I came to know that there were a large number of persons from Andhra Pradesh and only knew Telugu, immediately the MEA had been alerted and I had discussed it with them. The MEA brought persons, who knew the language, working in other Gulf countries to Dubai and other places to deal with them and opened camps. Everything has been arranged. So far, 42,000 out-passes have been issued; 25,000 passports have been issued. Apart from that, some of the Indian companies like ET and others have put up boxes so that those who are eligible for further employment in the country can put their applications in the camp itself. We made that arrangement also.

As far as flights are concerned, I had a discussion with my colleague, Shri Praful Patel, 10 or 15 days ago, and in turn he talked to the Air India Chairman. I am in touch with him. Three days ago I talked to him and told him that there was a need to increase the frequency of Air India flights a little more. The direction has been given. The Consulate Generals and the Ambassadors are holding discussions with the Air India officials there. As of today, two regular Indian Airlines flights are going full. The capacity of one flight is 245. They are flying from Sharjah to Hyderabad via Mumbai. There is one Emirates flight and one Air India flight. In the next week there would be rush because the amnesty date is extended only by two weeks. (Contd. By VK/1W)

-TMV/VK-ASC/1W/12.40

SHRI VAYALAR RAVI (CONTD): The Air India is discussing it and decided to have one week, and as the rush is increasing, they have decided to have more flights. In this connection, I also wrote a letter to all the Chief Ministers of many States, including Dr. Rajasekhara Reddy. They have responded to me. Sir, so far, no complaints have been received. We are talking everyday. I have to compliment the Embassy as well as, the Office of the Consulate General, because they are doing a good job. If there is any complaint, we will definitely take that into account. The main thing is amnesty flights have to reduce the fare. If there is any problem, we can look into it.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Shri Abu Asim Azmi.

SHRI RAVULA CHANDRA SEKAR REDDY: Sir, the problem is... (Interruptions).

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: The Government has responded. (Interruptions). Whatever you have to say, you convey it to him.

SHRI C. RAMACHANDRAIAH: Sir, they do not have money. (Interruptions).

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: The hon. Minister has given a detailed reply. (Interruptions). He will look into all those matters. He is seized of the situation. Leave it to the Government. They are seized of the situation. Shri Abu Asim Azmi.

SHRI C. RAMACHANDRAIAH: Sir, the Government of India can....(Interruptions).

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: He is seized of the situation. (interruptions).

SHRI VAYALAR RAVI: Sir, if there is any problem, definitely, I will talk to the Ambassador, voluntary organisations and other associations.

SHRI C. RAMACHANDRAIAH: Sir, there is a special fund for that.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: He is seized of the matter. He is assuring that he will do whatever is possible. What else can be done? (Interruptions). He knows there is a special fund. Now, Shri Abu Asim Azmi. (Ends)

شری ابو عاصم اعظمی "اتر پردیش" : وائس چئیرمین سر، سرکار کی غلط پالیسیوں سے ہیومن رائٹس کا بڑے پیمانے پر وائلیشن ہو رہا ہے۔ میں آج سدن کے سامنے ایک ارجنٹ پبلک میٹر کو لانا چاہتا ہوں۔ سر، پوسپورٹ بنوانے میں ہر روز لوگوں کی شکایتیں آ رہی ہیں اور اس میں بھی خاص طور سے اقلیتی طبقے سے۔ آج اقلیتی طبقے کو اس ملک میں ایک دہشت گرد کے روپ میں مشہور کر دیا گیا ہے۔ یہ لوگ پاسپورٹ بنوانے کے لئے ایپلی کیشنس دیتے ہیں، تو دو-دو سال تک ان کا پاسپورٹ نہیں بنتا ہے۔ یہ لوگ پولس اسٹیشن و پاسپورٹ آفس کے چکر لگا لگا کر تھک گئے ہیں۔ اگر ان کے فارم میں کوئی غلطی ہوتی ہے، تو ان کو انفارم کر دینا چاہئے کہ آپ کے فارم میں یہ غلطی ہے، آپ کا پاسپورٹ نہیں بنا سکتے ہیں۔ اگر کسی کے اوپر کوئی کیس درج ہو جائے، پالیٹکل کیس ہو جائے، تو اس کو پاسپورٹ نہیں ملتا ہے۔ جب کہ دوسری اور دہشت گرد لوگ ہیں، جن کے اوپر ٹاڈا کے انترگت مقدمہ چل رہا ہے اور سزا ہو رہی ہے، ایسے لوگوں کو پاسپورٹ دے کر، امریکہ اور لندن جانے کی پرمشن دی جا رہی ہے۔ جو اس ملک میں رہتے ہیں، انّوسینٹ لوگ ہیں اور جن کی کوئی غلطی بھی نہیں ہے، ان کا پاسپورٹ اس لئے نہیں بنتا ہے، کیوں کہ ان کی فیملیز کے کسی آدمی پر کوئی مقدمہ درج ہو گیا تھا۔ میں جاننا چاہتا ہوں کہ یہ کون سا قانون ہے کہ اگر پریوار کا کوئی ایک آدمی کسی مقدمے میں بند ہو گیا اور اس کو سزا بھی نہیں ہوئی، پھر بھی اس کا پاسپورٹ نہیں بنا؟ اگر اس کو سزا بھی ہو جائے، تو کیا اس کی بیوی اور بچوں کو سزا ملے گی؟ وہ کہتا ہے کہ میں پاسپورٹ آفس میں جا جاکر تھک چکا ہوں، میں فارن منسٹر صاحب سے مل مل کر تھک چکا ہوں، ہوم منسٹر صاحب کو خط لکھہ کر تھک چکا ہوں، مگر کوئی رسپانس دینے کو تیار نہیں ہے۔ آپ اس کو خط لکھہ دیجئے، لیٹر بھیج دیجئے کہ تمھاری یہ غلطی ہے، یہ لکھہ دیجئے کہ تمھارا باپ کریمنل تھا، اس پر مقدمہ چل رہا تھا، اس لئے پاسپورٹ نہیں دیں گے۔ یہ بھی لکھہ کر نہیں دیا جا رہا ہے۔ یہ ہیومن رائٹس کا ایک بہت بڑا وائلیشن کیا جا رہا ہے۔

سر، میں ایک ممبئی کا قصہ آپ کو بتاتا ہوں کہ ممبئی کے اندر ایک آدمی حنیف کڑا والا ٹاڈا کے اندر پکڑ لیا تھا۔ مجھے معلوم ہے کہ اس کی کیا انوولونگ تھی۔ اس کی یہی غلطی تھی کہ اس نے سنجے دت کا گھر بتا دیا تھا۔ اس کے علاوہ اس کی اور کوئی غلطی نہیں تھی۔ اس کے جیل سے چھوٹنے کے بعد کچھہ لوگوں نے اس کی ہتیہ بھی کر دی اور اس کے بچے یتیم ہو گئے۔ اس کی بچی بیچاری اپنا پاسپورٹ بنوانے کے لئے آویدن کر رہی ہے، وہ پچھلے دو سال سے ہمارے جیسے پڑھے لکھے لوگوں کے یہاں چکر لگا لگا کر اور پاسپورٹ آفس کے چکر لگا لگا کر تھک چکی ہے۔ اس کو نہ تو کوئی جواب دیا جا رہا ہے اور نہ ہی اس کا پاسپورٹ بنایا جا رہا ہے۔

سر، ایسی بھی شکایتیں آئی ہیں کہ بہت سے لوگ پالیٹکل ایجیٹیشن کرتے ہیں، ان پر کوئی مقدمہ درج ہو جاتا ہے، تو اس کا پاسپورٹ بنا کر نہیں دیا جاتا ہے۔ اس سے یہ کہا جاتا ہے کہ آپ جائیے اور کورٹ سے آرڈر لے کر آئیے۔ سر، کورٹ سے آرڈر لانا کتنا مشکل کام ہے۔ کورٹ میں تو تاریخ پر تاریخ لگتی رہتی ہے، کیوں کہ وہاں پر بہت سارے مقدمات ہیں۔ دوسرے کورٹ اتنی مہنگی بھی ہو گئی ہے کہ غریب آدمی کے لئے کورٹ جانا آسان نہیں ہے۔ سر، جس ملک کے اندر ایمپلائمنٹ نہیں ملتا ہو، جس ملک میں پاپولیشن کو پرابلم ہو، جس ملک میں فارن کرنسی کم ہو، وہاں کے لوگ غلاموں کی طرح نوکری کرنے کے لئے فارن کنٹریز میں جانا چاہتے ہیں، تو ان کو پاسپورٹ نہیں ملتا ہے۔ اس سے دیش کا ان-ایمپلائمنٹ دور ہو رہا ہے اور لوگوں کو ایمپلائمنٹ مل رہا ہے۔ وہ اپنے بال بچوں کو چھوڑ کر، دو-دو، تین-تین سال تک باہر رہتے ہیں۔ اس سے ہمارے دیش کی پاپولیشن کی پرابلم بھی حل ہو رہی ہے اور دیش میں بہت بڑی ماترا میں فارن کرنسی بھی لائی جا رہی ہے، ایسے لوگوں کا پاسپورٹ نہ بنوانا، ایک طرح سے جان بوجھہ کر ان کا پاسپورٹ روکنے کی کوشش کی جا رہی ہے۔

سر، میں یہ کہنا چاہتا ہوں کہ سرکار اس اور دھیان دے اور یہ آرڈر کرے کہ اگر کوئی آدمی انوسینٹ ہے، اس کے پریوار کے لوگوں نے چاہے کچھہ بھی کیا ہو، لیکن جو انوسینٹ ہیں، اسے فارن پاسپورٹ ملنا چاہئیے۔ اگر کسی پر کوئی مقدمہ چل بھی رہا ہو، تب بھی اسے پاسپورٹ ملنا چاہئے۔ اگر اسے باہر نہیں جانے دینا ہے تو اسے روک دیجئے۔ کمپیوٹر پر اس کا نام ڈال دیجئے کہ امیگریشن کے اندر وہ نہیں جا سکتا ہے۔ اگر جانا ہے تو کورٹ سے پرمشن لے کر جائے گا۔ لیکن ابھی پاسپورٹ بھی نہیں ایشو کیا جا رہا ہے۔

اپ سبھا پتی جی، یہ بہت ہی سیریس میٹر ہے۔ اس پر بہت جلد سے جلد قدم اٹھانا چاہئیے۔ دوسری چیز یہ ہے کہ اگر کسی کا پاسپورٹ ختم ہو گیا ہے اور یہ رینیول کرنے جا رہا ہے، تو اس کا پاسپورٹ رینیو بھی نہیں ہو پا رہا ہے۔ اس کی پھر سے پولس انکوائری کی جا رہی ہے۔۔مداخلت۔۔

شری اپ سبھا پتی : ٹھیک ہے۔۔مداخلت۔۔ ہو گیا ہے۔۔مداخلت۔۔

شری ابو عاصم اعظمی : سر، ایک منٹ۔ پولس میں اتنا بھرشٹاچار ہے، اتنی بے ایمانی ہے کہ وہ پیسہ لئے بغیر کام نہیں کرتے ہیں۔ پیسہ لے کر بھی انہیں پریشان کیا جا رہا ہے۔ سر، میں ایک چیز اور کہنا چاہتا ہوں کہ پاسپورٹ آفس میں ایک قانون بنا دیا جائے کہ اتنے دنوں کے اندر تک اگر کسی کی پولس انکوائری کی رپورٹ نہیں آئی ہے تو اسے پاسپورٹ ایشو کیا جائے۔ یہ بہت ہی سیریس میٹر ہے۔ میری یہ گزارش ہے کہ سرکار اس پر ترنت قدم اٹھائے۔ آپ کا بہت بہت شکریہ۔

incorporate a teaching and affiliating University at Amarkantak in the State of Madhya Pradesh to facilitate and promote avenues of higher education and research facilities for the tribal population in India and to provide for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.

 

The motion was adopted.

 

SHRI ARJUN SINGH: Sir, I introduce the Bill.

(Ends)

 

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Now, there are a few Special Mentions which had been left yesterday. I shall call the names of Members; these should not be read but should be laid.

SPECIAL MENTIONS

DEMAND TO SET UP A SOUTHERN GAS GRID PROJECT

SHRI K. CHANDRAN PILLAI (KERALA): The concept of Southern Gas Grid Project was originated in 1999 based on natural gas to be made available from either Oman or Iran. Since the plan for getting gas from Oman/Iran through the subsea pipeline was uncertain, the Southern Gas Grid project did not progress at all. The individual member States since then devised plans for getting gas through the LNG route.

Natural gas is now available from the Krishna-Godavari basin. As of today, there is no pipeline connectivity planned to Kerala State. In this context, the concept of Southern Gas Grid project covering the States of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh could be planned. Various studies have confirmed potential demand in Kerala for natural gas/LNG. In view of this, Kerala's demand for getting the KG basin gas by implementing the concept of Southern Gas Grid connecting KG basin Chennai, Bangalore and Kochi has important significance. The gas network will ensure complementary supply from Kochi LNG terminal and also gas from KG basin. Thermal Power plants NTPC, Kayamkulam, Brahmapuram, BSES Udyogamandal, Nellalam are now using Naptha as feed stock. Viability constraints of these plants can be overcome by switching over to gas as feed stock. Further expansion of the above plants will also be ensured by the above facility. Giant fertilizer company FACT is now in financial crisis because of Naphta raw material. It can be saved only by availing Gas. Further industrialisation of the State auto-gasification and cooking gas pipelining are only made possible by gas connectivity to Kochi from KG basin. (Ends)

شری شاہد صدیقی "اتر پردیش" : جس سماج میں عام آدمی کے لئے انصاف نہیں ہے، وہ ایک بیمار سماج ہے۔ جہاں عام جنتا کا یہ احساس ہو کہ ان کے لئے قانون اور انصاف کے دو پیمانے ہیں، وہاں بے چینی اور اراجکتا کا واتاورن پیدا ہو جاتا ہے۔ بھارت کی اقلیتوں میں اگر یہ احساس ہے کہ ان کے ساتھہ قانون اور انصاف کا دوہرا ماپ دنڈ اپنایا جا رہا ہے، وہ کچھہ غلط نہیں ہے۔ آج جب آزادی کے 60 سال پورے ہو گئے ہیں، تو ہم اس سچائی سے منھہ نہیں موڑ سکتے کہ اس دیش میں ہزاروں سامپردائک دنگے ہوئے ہیں، جن میں انگنت معصوم بچوں اور عورتوں کی جانیں گئی ہیں۔ آج مہاراشٹر کے مسلمان سوال کر رہے ہیں کہ شری کرشنا کمیشن کی رپورٹ کو لاگو نہ کرنے میں بھاجپا، شیو سینا اور کانگریس ایک ساتھہ کھڑے کیوں نظر آتے ہیں، گرفتاریاں بھی نہیں ہوئیں۔ ایسے میں عام آدمی سوال کرتا ہے کہ گجرات کے مکھیہ منتری اور مہاراشٹر کے سیکولر مکھیہ منتری میں آخر کیا انتر ہے۔ بات صرف شری کرشنا کمیشن کی نہیں ہے۔ جمشید پور، علی گڑھہ، بھونڈی، جل گاؤں، ہاشم پورہ، ملیانہ، بھاگلپور ہر دنگے میں آج تک ایسا ہی ہوتا آیا ہے۔ کمیشن بیٹھتے ہیں، رپورٹیں آتی ہیں، مگر کھلے عام قتل کرنے والوں، بہنوں کی عزت لوٹنے والوں، انسانوں کو زندہ جلانے والوں کو کوئی سزا نہیں ملتی۔ میں دیش کے پردھان منتری اور گرہ منتری سے مانگ کرتا ہوں کہ شری کرشنا کمیشن رپورٹ کو جلد لاگو کیا جائے۔ اس میں ذمہ دار ٹھہرائے گئے پولس افسروں کے خلاف جلد کاروائی ہو۔ میں مانگ کرتا ہوں کہ دنگوں کے لئے آگے جو بھی انکوائری کمیشن بنے، رپورٹ کو ماننا اور اس پر عمل کرنا سرکار کے لئے انیوارئے ہو اور اگر سرکار رپورٹ کو نہ مانے تو اس کا کارن پارلیمنٹ میں اسپشٹھہ روپ سے بتائے۔

CONCERN OVER SOIL EROSION CAUSED

BY RIVER BRAHMAPUTRA

SHRIMATI SYEDA ANWARA TAIMUR (ASSAM): River bank erosion caused by the Brahmaputra and its tributaries has been increasing and it has become a cause of concern for Assam. The State of Assam is loosing on an average approximately 8,000 hectares of land to the Brahmaputra and its tributaries every year by way of river-bank erosion and the Brahmaputra had alone eroded away over 3.88 lack hectares of land between 1954 and the year 2002. Loss of huge amount of fertile land has made thousands of families homeless and landless in the State in the past five decades. The land gulped down by the Brahmaputra cannot be recovered at all, whereas property and crops damaged by floods can be repaired and regenerated.

If the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries were channelised in a proper way, the erosion of land could not have taken place and the entire North Eastern Region could not have lagged behind. In most of the developed countries, their respective rivers have been controlled from floods and they have been channelised for irrigation and generation of hydro electricity.

I, therefore, urge upon the Government to pay more attention to allocate sufficient funds for anti-erosion works of the river Brahmaputra and to save the livelihood of thousands of habitants. (Ends)

DEMAND TO PROVIDE STOPPAGE OF TRAINS AT YERRAGUNTLA

AND KADAPA RAILWAY STATIONS IN ANDHRA PRADESH

SHRI M.V. MYSURA REDDY (ANDHRA PRADESH): I would like to draw the attention of Government towards the need for providing stoppage of Trains at Yerraguntla and Kadapa Railway Stations in Andhra Pradesh. It is a matter of grave concern that there is no stoppage of Train No. 7651/7652 (Kacheguda - Chennai Egmore -Kacheguda), Train No. 2707/2706 (Tirupati- Hazarat Nizamuddin-Tirupati) at Yerraguntla and Train No. 6733/6734 (Madurai - Manmad - Madurai) at Kadapa and Yerraguntla. Due to no stoppage trains at both places, the people have been facing a lot of difficulties.


Sir, there are three cement factories and one thermal power project at Yerraguntla. Now Proddutur, which is 10 kms away from Yerraguntla, is a commercial hub and has been named as Second Mumbai of the country. Yerraguntla Railway Station has to cater the needs of Proddutur and it is earning approximately Rs. 2 lakh per day by way of passenger tickets and Rs. 6 crore per day through cement transport. The Central Government should think positively on the above issues by providing stoppage facilities of the aforesaid trains in public interest.

I, therefore, urge upon the Central Government that necessary steps should be taken for providing stoppage of the above-mentioned trains at Yerraguntla and Kadapa Railway Station. Thank you.

CONCERN OVER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DURING PREGNANCY

DR. GYAN PRAKASH PILANIA (RAJASTHAN): Sir, according to a study conducted in Uttar Pradesh by Dr. Michael Koenig of Johns Hopkins University, USA, reported in the American Journal of Public Health, out of the 2,199 pregnant women studied by the US team, 402 or 18 per cent had been subjected to domestic violence during pregnancy.

The mortality rate of the children born to these women was 49.4 per 1000 births, including still births, in the pre-natal period up to 10 days after birth. The figure dwindled by half, that is, 24.3 per 1000 births, for children born to women who have not been physically abused. In the neo-natal period -- a month after birth -- the rate of childhood mortality jumped from 26.1 per 1000 births for women who did not face violence to 49.5 for those who faced violence. The conclusion we have come to from our study is that nearly one in five early child deaths could be potentially prevented if domestic violence could be eliminated, says Dr. Koenig.

Domestic violence also jacks up maternal stress levels, results in poor nutrition, lower preventive or curative maternal care, leading to underweight babies or premature delivery. The study also linked domestic sexual violence with gynaecologist problems. The rate of child mortality almost doubles if the mother is exposed to violence during pregnancy. It is not uncommon that behind closed doors of many homes in India, pregnant women are battered by their husbands. Hence, I would urge the Government to take effective steps for the prevention of domestic violence. (Ends)

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA: Sir...(interruption)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: That is under consideration. The request that you have made is with the Chairman. It is still under consideration. The Chairman would give you time.

Now, we shall take up the State Bank of India (Amendment) Bill, 2007 and the Statutory Resolution together. Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi to move the Statutory Resolution. (Interuptions) Dr. Joshi is not present.

Now, Shri Pawan Kumar Bansal to move the Bill.

THE STATE BANK OF INDIA (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2007

THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE (SHRI PAWAN KUMAR BANSAL): Sir, I beg to move:-

That the Bill further to amend the State Bank

of India Act, 1955, as passed by Lok

Sabha, be taken into consideration.

 

Sir, the Committee on Banking Sector Reforms, popularly known as the Narasimham Committee-II, while deliberating on the issue of regulation and supervision, had observed that it was consistent with the principles of the effective supervision that the regulator (even in the interim period, viz. the Reserve Bank) is also an owner of a bank. Sir, the Committee was of the view that appropriately RBI should not own the institution it regulates. This required RBI to divest its holdings in banks and financial institutions. In the discussion paper prepared by the RBI on "Harmonising the Role and Operations of Development Financial Institutions and Banks (January, 1999)", it suggested that in order to enable RBI to focus on its regulatory and supervisory functions, RBI should not continue with its ownership functions in both commercial banking and refinance of development finance segments. The ownership of financing institutions could ideally be delinked from RBI through the transfer of such ownership to the Government.

Sir, having decided to accept the recommendations for transfer of its shareholding in SBI to the Central Government, the RBI in its Monetary and Credit Policy for the year 2001-02 announced its intention to transfer the ownership of shares in SBI. Thereafter, the RBI furnished the details of legislative changes required for the purpose, the financial implications of the proposals of transfer of such shares and, thereafter, sent the draft legislation for making necessary amendments in the SBI Act, 1955 for transfer of its shareholding in SBI to the Government. In February, 2007, the Government approved the proposal for transfer of ownership of the shareholding of RBI, in the SBI, to the Central Government. (Contd. by 1z/tdb)

TDB-SCH/1Z/12.55

SHRI PAWAN KUMAR BANSAL (CONTD.): The transaction involved transfer of the entire equity held by the RBI in the SBI, i.e., 31,43,39,200 shares comprising 59.73 per cent of the total equity shares. In the current year's Budget, Sir, a sum of Rs.40,000 crore was provided for this purpose.

In view of the large amount involved, it was decided to complete the transaction before 30th June, 2007, i.e., the date of closure of the annual account of the Reserve Bank of India. Hence, it became necessary to carry out urgently the required amendments in the SBI Act, 1955.

As both the Houses of Parliament were not in session then, the State Bank of India (Amendment) Ordinance 2007 (5 of 2007) was promulgated on the 21st June, 2007 which came into force on the 29th June, 2007. Thereafter, the transfer of shares from the RBI to the Central Government before 30th June, 2007, i.e., in the current financial year of the RBI, has enabled the RBI to transfer all its profits due to this transfer as a part of the annual transfer of surplus to the Central Government.

Sir, the said Ordinance amended the State Bank of India Act, 1955 to enable the transfer of RBI's shareholding in SBI to Central Government. Sir, the amendments are confined only to substituting the words "Central Government" for the word "Reserve Bank" at 14 places and omitting the reference to the Reserve Bank at two places. Sir, this Bill seeks to replace the said Ordinance. Sir, the Lok Sabha has already passed this amending Bill on 20th August, 2007. With these words, Sir, I commend this august House to consider the Bill. (Ends)
