SCH/USY/1Q/12.15

RE: DEMAND FOR RECOGNIZING REVOLT OF INDEPENDENCE IN CUNCOLIM VILLAGE OF GOA

 

SHRI SHANTARAM LAXMAN NAIK (GOA): Sir, I stand here to raise the issue that one of the first revolts of independence against any foreign rule had taken place in my village Cuncolim, in Goa. It has still not been recognised by the country.

There is a village known as Cuncolim in Salcete Taluka, South Goa district, in the State of Goa. Villagers of Cuncolim are called 'Gaoncars'. They have a history of bravery and heroism. These 'Gaoncars' of Cuncolim village had revolted against the Portuguese as early as in the year 1583, which had led to the killing of the Portuguese agents, who would harass the 'Gaoncars' on one pretext or the other. This revolt of the 'Gaoncars' was much before the first officially recognized War of Independence, namely, the Revolt of 1857.

The history of this revolt is a history of patriotism, bravery and courage. It should be recognized in a manner, the history is recognized and authenticated in the country. A documentary needs to be produced by the Government of India on this revolt.

The Concolim village has had a long tradition of hospitality, especially that of political exiles. The first case of political asylum dates back to three-and-a-half century, when Salabhat Khan, the Commander of Adil Shah's Army and the last ruler of Goa, fled to Concolim for protection after he was defeated by the Portuguese. The people of Concolim were reputed for their honour and integrity and those who sought their protection were assured of their safety. Many of the Concolkars had served in Adil Shah's army and distinguished themselves for their bravery and courage. Some of them rose to the highest positions in the army. According to historial, Ermelinda Stuart Gomes, the army of Goa, at that time, was predominantly recruited from the villages of Assolna, Velim and Concolim (AVC), as people from these villages were known for their courage, determination and deep-rooted patriotism.

I appeal to the Government of India to constitute a committee of historians and other experts for the purpose of recognizing the first revolt of independence against any foreign rule in the country. A documentary be produced on the subject, besides including the history in the textbooks. (Ends.)

SHRI TIRUCHI SIVA (TAMIL NADU): Sir, in Malaysia, the Tamils, who constitute the largest percentage of Indian community, were marching in a peaceful rally, carrying pictures of Mahatma Gandhi, protesting against the marginalisation of the ethnic Indian minority and demanding equal rights. The Malaysian police, in an attempt to crush the demonstration, resorted to lathi charge, tear gas shells and water canons to disperse the crowd. The Malaysian Government has an authoritarian approach, thereby depriving the Tamilians of their democratic rights and not addressing their genuine demands, is highly condemnable. The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, our leader Dr. Kalaingar, expressing his concern over the bad tratment meted out to the Tamils in Malaysia for quite a long period of time, and expressing the sentiments of Tamilians, who are disturbed over the happenings in Kuala Lumpur, has written to the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, urging him to take immediate and appropriate actions for the sufferings and bad treatment meted out to the Tamilians in Malaysia. India is admitted for its democracy by the international community, but people in other countries are suffering to their worst. It is a matter of grave concern. I urge upon the Government to take immediate action. Thank you very much.

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY (PUDUCHERRY): Hon. Deputy Chairman, Sir, it is a very serious matter. Last Sunday, the people of Indian origin; people who went from Tamil Nadu and settled hundreds of years ago there, and also some NRIs, who were there, agitated for equal rights. Especially, Sir, the Malaya and the Chinese are given protection by the Government by way of safety, employment generation; everything. But, these people have been neglected. Therefore, they have been agitating. They have been lathi charged. Till today, more than 240 people are in jail, without any inquiry. They have not been released for no fault of theirs. Holding Gandhiji's portrait, they were agitating in a peaceful manner. They have not violated any norms, but they have been beaten black and blue by that Government. And, ultimately, they have been put behind bars. Therefore, Sir, the hon. Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, as Mr. Siva has said, written to the hon. Prime Minister to intervene in this matter for providing protection to those people. Now, I request the Government of India; the hon. Minister for External Affairs to kindly take it up at the diplomatic level and see that they are protected. ..(Interruptions)..

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: You will be associated. ..(Interruptions).. You will all be associated. ..(Interruptions)..

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Okay, okay. ..(Interruptions).. Shri D. Raja.

SHRI D. RAJA (TAMIL NADU): Thank you, Sir, with great mental agony, I raise this issue. Already, my hon. colleagues have raised the same issue. What happened in Malaysia, a few days ago, is very much distressing. Almost 8 per cent of the Malaysian population constitutes the Indian origin people and, mostly, they are all Tamils. They have gone over there and settled there. They have become citizens of Malaysia. But they do not enjoy the same, equal rights along with other citizens. They have been undermined; their human rights are being violated. They do not have democratic rights; in education and employment they are being discriminated. This has led to such a protest. The protest was very peaceful. As hon. Member pointed out, they were all holding Gandhiji's portrait and they were all demanding their right to live by having equal rights with other citizens. This is natural justice, and no Government or country can deny this natural justice or rights of the people. Malaysia is a developing country. India has very good relations with the Government of Malaysia. It is appropriate that our Government takes up this issue in an appropriate manner and sees to it that the human and democratic rights of the Indian origin people, particularly, the Tamils are protected and safeguarded because it is not only our citizens issue. There is another issue also. The NRIs, who go there for jobs, are also being abused. I know of several cases. Thousands of people, who migrated for jobs, are all in prison. There are many issues and, I think, the External Affairs Ministry should take up this issue, and our mission must be advised to look into their issues and see how far they can help. Our Government should address this issue with a sense of urgency, Sir. In this regard, I must point out that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has written to the hon. Prime Minister. It should not be taken as a ritual letter coming from a Chief Minister. This issue needs urgent attention. The Government of India should not delay it further, and, I appeal, personally, to the Prime Minister and the External Affairs Minister to take up this issue. The situation of the suffering people of the Indian origin in Malaysia is very tragic. Their plight is very miserable. No human being can tolerate such suffering.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please conclude now.

SHRI D. RAJA: Yes. Sir. That is why, on the floor of this august House, I appeal to our own Government that using the good relations with the Government of Malaysia they should take up this issue. You try to intervene, settle, and see that the people of Indian origin get justice and enjoy equal rights along with other citizens. Thank you, Sir. (Ends) ..(Interruptions)..

DR. K. MALAISAMY (TAMIL NADU): Sir, this is to supplement Shri D. Raja. As far as this issue is concerned, I would like to bring to the notice of the House that the latest information is 64 Hindu temples were destroyed and damaged. The process of destruction is continuing. About 200-years-old temples are nowhere there. This is the situation. A large number of people were killed. Sir, what I am trying to say is that the situation is very, very serious. What I am trying to say again and again is that whatever action they are conceiving to take is not at all adequate. I am told that the High Commission in Malaysia is totally indifferent and refusing to take action. The last important point is this. Why I am so much interested is the descendants of Malaysian Tamils are none other than the descendants of Marudu brothers ..(Interruptions)..

DR. V. MAITREYAN: Sir, the brutal assassination of former Prime Minister, Shri Rajiv Gandhi, is still fresh in our memory. He was killed in 1991 in Tamil Nadu during an election campaign by an LTTE suicide squad. It was due to the persistent efforts made by our Party leader and the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Madam Jayalalitha, that the LTTE was banned by the then Central Government led by late Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao. The ban is periodically reviewed and is in vogue even today. Whenever Madam takes over as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, the activities of terrorist organisations like LTTE, TNLA, TNRP are all dealt with with an iron hand.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Now, you are going into details.

DR. V. MAITREYAN: But when we are not in power, the terrorist organisations have a field day. There are detailed reports of the seizure of arms and ammunition like AK-56, guns...(interruptions)...

SPECIAL MENTIONS

DEMAND TO CANCEL RE-TENDERING OF STALLS GIVEN TO DISPLACED PERSONS BY THE KONKAN RAILWAY CORPORATION.

SHRI SHANTARAM LAXMAN NAIK (GOA): Sir, the House may be aware that the Government constituted Konkan Railway Corporation for the purpose of starting a railway route along the Konkan Coast going up to Goa and Mangalore. In this connection, vast tracks of land were acquired by the Government. There was also an agitation in Goa on grounds that ecology of the State would be affected on account of coastline alignment worked out by the Corporation.

There were also fears that Goa would be used as a corridor for the passing trains, and that, the needs of Goa would not be addressed, separately.

When the land was acquired, many had to surrender the agricultural activities that they were doing on the land. Some of the land losers were given jobs in the Corporation while some others were given stalls/telephone booths to be run by them at various stations.

Those who accepted the jobs are in the services of the Corporation, but those to whom the stalls were allotted, in their cases, the Corporation has re-tendered the stalls, which means despite the commitments given by the Corporation to the land losers the Corporation proposes to snatch away the stalls which the land losers, to whom they were allotted, are entitled to run upon payment of reasonable licence fee.

In these circumstances, if the Railway Ministry, which is funding the Corporation, does not intervene and takes steps to cancel the tenders issued with respect to the stalls allotted to the land losers, it would amount to a great hardship to these persons by a statutory Corporation. Thank you. (Ends)

CONCERN OVER LARGE-SCALE DIVERSION OF WHEAT EARMARKED FOR PDS IN ASSAM.

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE (ASSAM): Sir, I rise to draw attention of the Government to large-scale diversion of wheat meant for poor people under BPL and APL families to be distributed through FPS. This problem is being faced by many States in North-East; but it has become dangerous in Assam. Huge amount of wheat does not reach Assam, but is sold in black market outside the State.

In this context, I urge upon the Government to devise some foolproof system and, in my opinion, Gram Panchayats/local bodies/associations should assess the need of flour (atta) or wheat, as the case be, for supply to BPL and APL families and indicate the same to their respective State Governments. The State Governments, in turn, should submit quarterly data to Central Government on the supply made through PDS to ensure that the intended objective of providing affordable food stocks to BPL and APL families is achieved. While wheat should be routed to the beneficiaries through local FPS, the quantity to be converted in flour should be supplied to local flour mills who after conversion supply to FPS so that the intended beneficiaries can get the same at rates fixed by the Government.

Regarding kerosene, the sale of the same in black market at exorbitant price is an open secret and despite many unscrupulous traders caught red-handed and arrested, the problem remains where it is. A more stringent legislation is needed in this regard and enhanced punishment to deter them. Thank you.

DEMAND FOR IMMEDIATE ISSUANCE OF NEW

UAS LICENCES FOR PROSPECTIVE GSM OPERATORS.

 

SHRI VIRENDRA BHATIA (UTTAR PRADESH): Sir, the Government had decided to grant new licences as per the existing policy to the new applicants. In pursuance thereof, a large number of companies have applied for the licences but no decision has yet been taken by the Government.

It may also be stated that some major telecom operators like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea, who are into GSM operations had increased tariffs in their service areas affecting millions of consumers. Since there is no other major player in the GSM arena, this monopolistic attitude of the GSM operators could not be controlled by TRAI. In order to discourage such cartelisation of the operators, the Government has to bring in new operators. Thus, it is very much imperative that new licences are issued by the Government to the waitlisted applicants at the earliest so that a level playing field is achieved. This will also result into penetration of tele-density in the rural areas and introduction of consumer friendly initiatives by the new operators. It would also curb the monopolistic attitude of private players who I apprehend have been manipulating to bar the entry of new players in the field.

I would, therefore, request the hon. Minister to issue these licences at the earliest.

REQUEST TO TAKE MEASURES FOR THE UPLIFTMENT OF THE SCHEDULED CASTES AND THE SCHEDULED TRIBES

 

SHRI PRAVEEN RASHTRAPAL (GUJARAT): Sir, reservation to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in the House of People and Legislative Assemblies of the States was provided in the Indian Constitution under Article 334 originally for ten years with effect from 26th January 1950. It is being extended regularly every 10th year. The last extension took place by the Constitutional amendment during the 13th Lok Sabha.

The very fact that reservation in Lok Sabha and State Legislatures is extended and further reservation is also provided in Panchayati Raj proves that the lot of SCs and STs has not improved socio- economically as expected by the Government and hence extension of the time limit.

My experience as a Member of Parliament is that there is no consultation with the representatives of reserved category by various Constitutional institutions. Many policy decisions by the Union Cabinet and various other Governmental agencies are taken which directly affects the socio-economic life of this class. For example, construction of large dams, construction of industrial projects in tribal belt, establishment of Special Economic Zone, outsourcing by Government departments and public sectors, self-finance institutions in education, privatisation of health and transport services, etc., will create disparity as far as reserve categories are concerned. Tribal population is displaced in the name of industrial development. The Scheduled Castes population is deprived of jobs in the name of contract system and outsourcing of Government jobs. This will have effect on the unorganised workers in urban area and poor people in rural areas.

In view of the above, the hon. Prime Minister, who is also the Leader of Rajya Sabha, is requested to consider on top priority basis and evolve a system of discussion which will enable the Government in power to have consultation with elected representatives in Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and State Legislature. If this is not done, the very purpose of reservation of seats for SCs and STs will become redundant. The intention of the Legislature at the time of framing of the Constitution of India requires to be seriously considered for upliftment of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes population.

REQUEST FOR NOT WITHDRAWING SATELLITE CONNECTION FROM TRIPURA BY BSNL

SHRI MATILAL SARKAR (TRIPURA): Thank you, Sir. It is learnt that the BSNL has issued an order to cut off satellite connection from the tele-communication services prevailing in Agartala, Khowai, Kamalpur, Belonia and Sabroom of Tripura. These places, including the capital city of Tripura, have immense importance from the strategic point of view. The decision of BSNL has evoked serious reactions from different corners.

As a matter of fact, the capacity of microwave system in the State is grossly inadequate. The optical fibre connection is also not stable. The connection reportedly comes from Silchar, far off from Agartala. This line is always at the threat of disruption from landslides and the extremists. As NH-44, the lifeline of the State, is under four-laning and is being broadened, the optical fibre line will have to undergo frequent disturbances. So, the satellite connection is the safer alternative. It is noteworthy that the State is surrounded by Bangladesh on three-fourths of its boundary. Moreover, the State Assembly election is on the anvil. The tele-services have to be maintained free from interference of any sort.

In these circumstances, I urge upon the Central Government to keep aside the decision of withdrawing satellite connection as described above and strengthen the present system to cope with frequency warranted ahead.

DEMAND FOR INTEREST-FREE EDUCATIONAL LOANS TO STUDENTS PURSUING B.ED/TEACHER TRAINING COURSES

 

SHRI C. PERUMAL (TAMIL NADU): Sir, I wish to raise an important issue regarding denial of education loan for students pursuing Teacher Training and B.Ed. courses. The Government of India is providing education loan for poor students for their professional studies like MBBS, BE, B.Sc (Agri), Teacher Training, B.Ed. and Nursing through the nationalised banks. Students belonging to poor families are utilising this opportunity through nationalised banks, even though the rate of interest of these loans is very high. But, to our surprise, recently, two months back, the Ministry of Finance issued a circular not to provide education loan for those students who are pursuing education in Teacher Training and B.Ed. courses. On the one hand, the Government is telling that they are providing education loan for all professional courses, and, on the other, the education loan is denied for those students who are studying in Teacher Training and B.Ed. courses. By this decision of the Finance Ministry, the Government of India, the poor students are unable to continue their studies. I request the Government of India to intervene in the matter and see that the education loan is provided for those students who are continuing their education in Teacher Training institutes and B.Ed. as has beendone in the past. (Contd. by 1z)
