Hi Guys,

We all know this is going to be continued forever until and unless strong agitation happens from people of vidarbha. We like-minded people at least discussing these issues over net from long time.
I have one suggestion. Lets come together and rais our voice during this Winter session at Nagpur so that at least media will come to know that what type of step-motherly behavior happening with Vidarbha. Our major concern should be to raise concern over less industries in vidarbha region inspite of having good facilities over here. We ask CM about construction status of TCS/Infosys at MIHAN, about delay in MIHAN, etc. We only rais voice against the development issues.

Your thoughts, please suggest!!!

This is great. Unfortunately I cannot be there physically. Go for it, raise the concerns. Get people motivated. Let the Govt hear people's voices.

I wish you all the best.

THanks for support. I am motivated now...

We should raise our voice then only general public as well as govt will come to know that now the people of Vidarbha has waken-up.

But we need to plan this very strategically for better execution. We are not politically motivated or not even interested in playing politics, we just want justice. So lets plan for some conversation regarding this. I am requesting all to put your valuable suggestions also.

Bawanthadi dam: Will 37-year-wait end?



Source - TOI
Ramu Bhagwat, TNN Jul 2, 2012, 04.28AM IST

Quote:
NAGPUR: The Bawanthadi interstate irrigation project being executed by Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh could easily make into any book of world records as the tardiest public project. Conceived 37 years ago- in 1975 at a cost of Rs 23.47 crore - its estimated cost has now escalated 60 times to Rs 1407 crore (pricing as per 2008-09 rates).

The irony is that even as the work on dam and canals is almost complete, authorities are not sure whether the dam will get operational and submergence will begin this year as planned. This is because three villages in submergence area are still to be shifted. Along with Gosikhurd dam, Bawanthadi is part of the monumental neglect that Vidarbha has suffered silently for want of political will.

"Literally, one generation has waited in vain to get benefits of this major irrigation project. We hope at least the patience of people will pay dividends," said an official attached to the project. Bawanthadi is a tributary of the Wainganga river. The dam site is located at Sitekasa village in Tumsar taluka of Bhandara district close to the Madhya Pradesh border. Once it gets going, the project is expected to irrigate 18,615 hectares in Madhya Pradesh and 17,537 hectares in Bhandara district of Maharashtra.

"As per plans, submergence is to begin this monsoon. The Inter-State Control Board will be meeting next month to decide on the quantum of water to be blocked," board secretary Sanjay Kholapurkar told TOI on Thursday. The board comprising top officials and ministers concerned of the two states is headed by chief minister of either of the states. From July 1, it is Maharashtra CM's turn to take over for a year.

About mind-boggling delay in execution of the project, Kholapurkar said several factors contributed to it. The fact that two states had to work in tandem complicated it as initially Madhya Pradesh was reluctant. Once that state overcame their hurdles, regular problems that most Vidarbha projects are beset with followed. Funds flow was too low, forest clearances took over a decade to come by. The project affected people -three villages in Bhandara district and seven in Nagpur district were almost immovable.

Maharashtra was more keen on the project to tap the waters of Bawanthadi to provide assured irrigation needed for the paddy belt in Bhandara. But then MP resolved PAPs rehabilitation and resettlement faster and more efficiently than Maharashtra. Now shifting of people from Susurdoha village in Bhandara and shifting of some residents from Pindkepar, Mujhad and Sitepartola villages in Nagpur district is awaited before submergence begins. If PAPS refuse to do so voluntarily they may be evacuated forcibly in next week or two.

Bawanthadi over the years

In 1975 when conceived...

23.47cr to be shared by MP (11.81) & Maharashtra (11.65)

Revised costs in 1993...

161.57cr; MP (89.78), Maharashtra (71.79)

Second revision in 2001...

373.99cr; Mah (182), MP (194.99)

Third revision 2009: 561.26cr

Current estimated cost: 1407cr; MP (657.86), Mah (749.33)

1989: Forest clearance obtained

Apr 2010: Transfer of forest land to irrigation dept

Some very disturbing news in today's Hitavada

WRD Minister blaming poor regions and Governer's directives, that their demand for money to remove backlog has resulted in such a poor performance. This is a pet argument of Western Maharashtra leaders to blame backward region (read Vidarbha) to cover up massive irregularities! HEIGHT!!!

Political egos affecting vidarbha's fortunes

Source - TOI
Ashish Roy, TNN | Jul 6, 2012, 02.10AM IST

Quote:
NAGPUR: When their counterparts in other states are boasting of attracting investment, politicians in Vidarbha are merely repeating promises made a decade ago. All that Vidarbha has to show in the name of noteworthy investment through political push is the ordnance factory that came in the 1960s and DCL Polyester in 1990s. Ironically, ex-CM Yashwant Chavan from Marathwada was instrumental in bringing the ordnance factory, and DCL came due to the efforts of former Prime Minister Narasimha Rao, who contested from Ramtek.

Industrialists say Nagpur's problem is that none of the current leaders enjoy enough clout in the corridors of power. So, if Pune/Baramati have a Sharad Pawar, Gujarat a Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar is for Bihar, there is none for Vidarbha.

Experts say Nagpur should have seen a lot more growth in the last one or two decades. Unfortunately, local politicians did not see beyond Mihan, and still continue to make the same mistake. Meanwhile, cities like Raipur did not have any such mega project, but their rate of growth has been far higher than Nagpur.

It has been years since a politician from Nagpur district got a prominent portfolio in either centre or state cabinet. The local ministers have never been given finance, revenue, industry or other important departments. They have been given second rung departments like animal husbandry, EGS, textiles, etc. The only exception was present civil supplies minister Anil Deshmukh, who was excise minister from 1999 to 2004. BJP national president Nitin Gadkari too handled public works department from 1995 to 1999.

When TOI asked the politicians why Nagpur lags behind in economic growth, those belonging to the ruling party claimed that they have done every thing possible to kick-start Mihan. The opposition, on the other hand, blames the state government for lack of progress. MP Vilas Muttemwar blamed his own party men for bias against Vidarbha.

Muttemwar, who was union minister of renewable energy for five years, is blamed for not doing anything for the city. He had announced solar city projects for Nagpur and Chandigarh. While Chandigarh successfully implemented the project, Nagpur failed. He, however, charged Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) with not showing any interest in it while the Chandigarh government ensured that it was implemented.

On the city's economy, Muttemwar says Nagpur's economy suffered a major jolt due to the closure of Empress Mill and Model Mill, as the two together employed 50,000 people. He also slammed the state government for discriminating against Vidarbha. "Ashok Chavan promised to set up IT zones in Nagpur, Nanded and Aurangabad. Now, they are coming up in Pune and Aurangabad, even though Pune is already a major IT hub. Even Praful Patel did not help Nagpur when he was the civil aviation minister."

Senior BJP MLA Devendra Fadnavis feels that the city's development is stuck because Mihan is not going ahead. When asked what the BJP-led government at the centre (1998-2004) had done for the city, he said that Mihan was a state government project. He also refuted allegations that his union in Indorama Synthetics had spoiled the industrial climate of the city.

Anil Deshmukh said he has been regularly urging CM Prithviraj Chavan, deputy CM Ajit Pawar and union heavy industries minister Praful Patel to help set up an automobile manufacturing plant at Nagpur.

Both Fadnavis and Deshmukh feel that Nagpur should not be compared to Nashik and Aurangabad, as the two cities are closer to Mumbai.

Had it been the same case if Maharashtra was merged in Vidarbha rather than other way round?
The root cause here is the merger.

This is really bad about VIdarbha. Politicians are also responsible for backwardness of Vidarbha and one more thing our ministers have not been given any better portfolio. Only western maharashtra ministers have enjoyed that glory.
VIdarbha is the cotton growing region and in Baramati they formed Baramati International Texttile Park.
Thats why the best idea is to we people should come together and ask for justice. Atleast we can give a try so that our sleeping politicians will come to know something and they feel ashamed on this.

What you guys say?

Maharashtra’s third mega industrial zone to come up near Nagpur

Mumbai, July 5:

The Maharashtra Government has identified 6,000 hectares in Umred near Nagpur for setting up its third National Investment and Manufacturing Zone.

Under the recently announced National Manufacturing Policy, seven National Investment and Manufacturing Zones (NIMZ) have been identified, of which three would be in Maharashtra.

Dr K Shivaji, Industries Secretary of Maharashtra, told Business Line that the land acquisition process is underway at Umred. The acquisition process has been smooth without any major hindrances, he added.

Quote:
The State Government has already zeroed in on Dighi in Raigad district for setting up its first NIMZ, which would be spread over 20,000 hectares. It would probably be the largest industrial zone in the country.
The second zone at Shendra, near Aurangabad, would be a smaller zone of 9,000 hectares. The zones at Dighi and Shendra fall under the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor project.

The zones will be mega industrial areas, manufacturing a number of goods and having their own utilities and logistics services. Areas for residences and administrative services will also be well demarked, he said.

NIMZs will offer a host of goodies to companies such as exemption from capital gains tax, liberalised labour laws and environment norms.

By 2022, the zones are aimed at raising the proportion of manufacturing sector in the GDP to 25 per cent from the present 15-16 per cent. They are expected to put India on par with manufacturing giants like China and South Korea.

~~ Vidarbha ~~

hi guys.
according to me, the progress of vidarbha will be possible only after it is separated from Maharashtra. vidarbha as a separate state will grow more rapidly as many resources are available here. western Maharashtra is using major portion of resources from vidarbha. politicians from western Maharashtra don't want vidarbha as separate state, coz it will cost more to the Maharashtra govt to buy resources from vidarbha, for example 70% of electricity generation is in vidarbha -- koradi, khaparkheda, chandrapur etc, also nagpur is centrally located, connected by road n rail and also by air. Also Nagpur district has ample space and more scope for expansion of industrial sector.


Also Cargo Hub, Mihan, Boeing are going to give much strength to the development of vidarbha. that is the main reason Maharashtra govt is denying formation of vidarbha.

Anyways....WELCOME ABOARD.

I believe, the parliament's monsoon session is in progress in Mumbai and among the issues planned for discussions there, Vidarbha Backlog is not there. One related is "White Paper" on irrigation boondoggle by the current Govt. in last 10 years.....but that will cover all Maharashtra and not only Vidarbha.

Where is the voice of Vidarbha in Mumbai especially at this crucial hour?????

The Enemy of Vidharba is not Western Maharashtra, It is the Pawar Lobby of Pune which sucks up Money and Resources from Mumbai and Vidharba and creates industries in Pune-Nashik-Aurangabad. They do not allow Vidharba to be connected to the Coast. So unless and until you access to the coast, You will have No Manufacturing. Financial(Share Markets with Trillions of Dollars of Market Capitalization), Technological(Companies with Hundreds of Billions of Dollars in Revenues) and Skilled Manpower all are available in the State itself. It hurts when Our State Invests billions of Dollars in other States while Our People do not get access to Infrastructure or Industries because of these Pune Thugs who suck up the money of the entire state. Mumbai and Nagpur are only Nominal Capitals in name. The Power Center and the Fate of the State is decided in Pune.
