UID exercises until passed by parliament are illegal

UID cannot be "legally" 'authorized" by the government until parliament passes it.
An administrative officer appointed to uphold law and Administer" in its ambit
should be fully aware.
A higher standard officer is expected to advise and guide erring politicians
and peoples representatives without fear or favor AS TO what is LAWFUL.
When they fail in their duty by bending over backwards like this
speaking with forked tongue worthy of a politician INDIA BEWARE ,CONSTITUTION
Mr Dalwai cant mislead the public by saying UID is government authorized.
and in the same breath admit that it has not passed the crucial parliament.
It amounts to putting the cart before the horse and illegality by any definition.

guesstimates to bolster FCS LPG exercise

These figures as handed out by the minister cannot be relied on. Given the inaccuracy of records maintained by the department.
The proportion of illegal connections has been coming down fast. Faster than the purchasing power of rupee, as more and more connections are found valid . No where near the orignial 50 percent illegal.
Aactually less than 10 percent or so by their own reported statistics.
FCS can say APL cannot get rations. But they cannot classify the legally issued cards as illegal
Now a days mainly used for identification or meomrabilia purposes.
There has been no confirmation whether the RR numbers are not repeated across the state EBs. The meter numbers across divisions have stayed unchanged.
Considering they were allotted before computerization.
Gas companies be aware they are liable for serious gross violation of valid contract between them and consumers. If and when they deny refills or connections based on illegal powers or acts of FCS.

FCS does not have legal authority to cancel contracts between Consumer and Gas companies

Few days ago it was only in thousands Suddenly it has become Lakhs of illegal connections. Is this to justify the enormous expense that was incurred on this exercise? Illegal connections are no doubt to be controlled strictly. The method used to identify them by FCS cannot be unfair, illogical or unauthorized. The linking of RR numbers and ration cards in retrospect is without legal sanction or authority. LPG agencies can be sued for denial and deficiency of service as a class action by all affected consumers. Never was there a legal link between RR number, the number of connections there on at the time of issue of connection, and /or ration cards. Now it cannot be created post facto. Novice inexperienced Minister Karandlaje should remember that FCS did not issue the Gas connections cannot disconnect them. If LPG companies do so then they will be liable seriously based on FCS orders. Only the gas companies can individually identify the illegal connections only based on fraudulent papers produced for the connection. not otherwise. She should look into the bigger problem of the lakhs bogus ration cards issued by her officials.

ಮೈಸೂರು DC ವಸ್ತ್ರದ ನಡವಳಿಕೆ ಲಜ್ಜಾಸ್ಪದ

ಮೈಸೂರು ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿ ವಸ್ತ್ರದ ಅವರು ನಾಡಗೀತೆ ಹಾಡುವ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಸೆಲ್
ಫೋನಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾತನಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ದೃಶ್ಯ ರಾಜ್ಯ ಸರ್ಕಾರದ ನೌಕರನ ಅನಾಗರೀಕತೆಯ, ಅವಮಾನದ ಪರಮಾವಧಿ.
ಈ ನಡುವೆ ಪದೇ ಪದೇ ಪುನರಾ ವರ್ತಿ ಸುತ್ತಿರುವ ಖಂಡನೀಯ ನಡವಳಿಕೆ.
ಇಷ್ಟೂ ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯ ಸೌಜನ್ಯತೆಯ ಪರಿಜ್ಞಾನ ಇಲ್ಲದವರು ಇಂತಹ ದೊಡ್ಡ ಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಕುಳಿ ತಿರುವುದು
ನಮ್ಮ,ರಾಜ್ಯದ,ದೇಶದ ಮತ್ತು ಸರ್ಕಾರದ ದೌರ್ಭಾಗ್ಯ ಅಂದರೆ ಉತ್ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷೆ ಇಲ್ಲ.

what purpose do preintimated raids serve?

These raids appear to be an eyewash and a farce.
The same modus operandi appears to work.
Take an inordinate time to set up investigation agency, giving enough time to the culprits to ready the scene for investigation.
How can public have faith in fixed up raids to unearth any incriminating evidence?


has IRDA finally woken upto its consitutional mandate?

Good to see IRDA has finally woken up to its constitutionally mandated duty of providing even playing field for insured and protecting their interests from piranha insurance companies.



cream turning sour

What kind of an eyewash is this lok ayukta raid which the raided knows beforehand. Do these investigative agencies think the raided are so dumb to wait with redhands to be caught? Or are they just ensuring escape considering most of the culprits are "Cream"-turning sour- of the society, be they Adarsh, Darshan, Reddy, Yeddy, Amar singh, modi, maran, kanimozhi, raja etc etc etc.

what absolute rot lokayuktaji

What absolute rot Lokayukatji. This Land of Mahatma is expert at Murdering Truth in his name.
Was Bangalore Mirror named in the Previous lok ayukta report to slander and malign you?
We have some degree of transparency and accountability, thanks to the print and visual media.
Hope they relentlessly persist to pursue transformation of this great nation.

one sided version on consumer courts

CPA was enacted to provide equal footing between players. You have not addressed the real problem that service providers especially government UNDERTAKINGS .
Consequently all of them exhibit a do whatever you want, we could not care less attitude towards complaints.
Indian Courts do not respect time, effort, and mental agony of complainants in the same way western courts do.
Or impose exemplary penalties to encourage better service and attitudes. Even if they do it is grossly out of touch with reality. For Ex. for a bounced check twice the value of the check is considered "meeting the ends of justice"to the drawee. Whereas a consumers check bounced unlawfully a deep regret and apology is considered sufficient. This injustice, drives them to consumer courts. This discrepancy encourages anticonsumer attitudes. If subseqent out of court settlements are such an issue, consumer courts can impose a suitable cost of settlement on even those. Second is extraordinary delays even in successful suits.


modi's 2002 acts unpardonable

No matter what courts find, most rational Hindus find Narendra Modis behaviour in Gulmarg case a blot and a shame on the Religion. They have no doubt he sat with his hands on his chest at the time the victims were begging for help. What is worse he prevented police from acting, exactly like Bangarappa did during kaveri riots. Now he is gloating thinking that the court has given him a clean chit. Unpardonable acts under any circumstances.

pregnant virgins

Corruption all said and done is corruption. In case of Shivraj Patil, the lokayukta, the slight difference being, he did not take cash for a doing a job that he was paid to do. From the people he was supposed to serve. if that is any saving grace.
But this reminds us of the unmarried pregnant girl successfully hiding the pregnancy. Delivers the baby in the toilet flushes it down. When discovered eventually claims she doesnt have the baby so she is a virgin.


Kattas medical conditions no excuse for lenience

Why are Kattas medical problems like cancer etc being highlighted by the doctors and Katta now? to evoke public and court sympathy? He and his kin knowingly violated the laws of the land for greed, even when he had the diseases. It was a crime against citizens of the state and nation. He needs to pay the price. Court should not be lenient on this issue.

TRAI approach-cut off face to spite nose

This is cut off the face to spite the nose.
An attitude typical of toothless tigers government undertakings. Reminescent of schooldays where whole classes were punished for the crimes of a few students by confining the whole class after hours. Commercial bulk sms senders misuse the system. What ever happened to the idea that donot disturb (DND) violators were to pay the violated 500 rs per sms?
We still keep getting those inspite of DND registration.


speaker Bopaiah nonpartisan?

Speaker not only should be nonpartisan but should appear nonpartisan. K G Bopaiah has hardly been democratic as obvious during the noconfidence motion and events leading up to it. What is more it appears Manjunath is issuing privileges threats to those who question the speaker. The position is judged by the person occupying it and not the other way round, for ever by the public.

Brinjal human safety not reliably proved

Are these scientists, families and friends willing to be human guinea pigs for the genetically modified vegetables long term field trials?
If not their motives for recommendation is seriously suspect
How can this bunch of local scientists overlook all the existing warning research and recommend the bio safety of GM crops? What about long term biological effects on humans? We still cannot deal with very well known Enteric fevers, E.coli infections etc. We are willing to be fed gene from a virulent silkworm pathogen Bacillus thuringiensis?
Sericulture is a major agro industry in Karnataka.
There is so much corruption in the country, of ideas,ideologies, loyalty that you cannot trust such recommendations.

Mayawatis rave defies ordinary sense. Typical of the egomaniac described in the report. USA estimation of all the politicians seems accurate from what we know. However, mayawatis, krishnas may not like it. Assange is just a messenger not the author. We the people can judge for ourselves our opinions confirmed by wikileaks and mayawatis actions.

lower courts should be more stringent

Our hearts bleed for this beautiful girl.
A severely depraved mind-no doubt encouraged by "revenge/avenge" visual media depictions- conceived this attack.
Kudos to highcourt for enhancing the term.
It is still inadequate message to the perpetrator and potentials.
They should have made sure he worked his ass off in jail to support the girl for life.
It would not have needed high court intervention if only the lower court had handed out a stringent punishment and message. This kind of judicial lenience is intolerable to the society and the victims.
It leaves a bad taste behind in the law abiding society.

skunk stink of politics

Politics reeks like a skunk of double standards.
The same charge against an opposition party would have termed it conviction.
Being jailed during freedom struggle was honorable.
Now the crooks and criminals in politics have made it a regular happening. Their paid supporters performing vociferously for the media
to give a false sense of public support.
Where and when will this tamasha stop?
Probably when the crooked politicians are in jail. The extras will have no source of daily wages.


victims pay the penalty instead of law breakers

This article highlights everything that is wrong about our postaccident event management. When insurance is justified in not paying the others involved like the owner,agency, and even accenture should be held liable and apportioned compensation be paid to the victim.
There is a huge lacuna in our Motor vehicle insurance information. It would be a great public service if BM does an article on the exact coverage of third party, comprehensive and the insurance requirements for commercial vehicles etc.
When there are 900 deaths on Bangalore roads and 9000 injuries we cannot sit idle while lives are put to extreme hardship because a few do not follow rules. But they are willing to engage in making money by short cuts.

sen making Law an ass

Shame indeed sending in the last minute resignation trying to subvert a legal process.
A judge making an ass of Law.
If Resignation is instant how can we have judges like Dinkaran trying to take his resignation back?
Sen should be made to reimburse all the costs of the legal process to the nation.

now throw ipads instead of chappals, mikes,

Oh wow, modern technology never stops surprising India. Now that means they can throw ipads at each other instead of chappals? Or does it mean they can raise privilege motions against citizens for such remarks and jail them?


bewitching BBMP

Ah the Bewitching face of BBMP!
Parketh No less a prime spotlight ISKCON
just so thousands can see.
All the perfumes of Arabia
(cannot sweeten)
the stink of Kaccha (sorry) swaccha Bangalore trucks,
All the Adobia photoshops cannot
airbrush such impressions,
the Best PR firms of global village
better these images!

those poor RTO Traffic creatures
who dare stop them
(if the brakes act)
despite stink for checks
Should those who raise voices
against such graphic images,
fear and shake like Annas Kiran Bedi and Om puri
the wrath of Privilege motions,
contempt of court or
token one rupee defamation suits?

recover costs from sen

By: m b nataraj
On: 03 Sep 2011 02:31 am

His conscience and all the people knew he was guilty though he spoke otherwise. As the cream of the society he should have held himself to higher standards of conduct than applicable to the masses. The impeachment should continue strip him of the now undeserved title of justice and recover all the costs the state suffered on the protracted wasteful expenditure on an exercise of national shame.


"demoncratic" government

this "demoncratic" government is no better than hitler or stalin who used gestapo and nkvd to coerce opponents into submission.

why isnt there greater national shame in Sen case?

Academic interests apart, why is there no sense of national shame that Sen brought us to this brink for his selfish motives?
It is not too much to expect higher standards of conduct from the cream of the society.
Surely even the blindest could have seen that this was an avoidable demeaning exercise?
