BJP warns of violent stir over separate Vidarbha demand

NAGPUR: BJP has threatened to take to the streets to launch their 'final' agitation over the demand for creation of separate Vidarbha, alleging that the ruling Congress was deliberately neglecting the statehood issue.

"Congress was apprehensive of losing power to NCP in the state in case Vidarbha is carved out of Maharashtra," state BJP president Davendra Phadanvis said here.

"BJP will hit the road to continue its democratic fight if Congress does not concede to the demand," he warned.

"The ruling party (Congress) perhaps understands the language of violence only and that is evident from the violent protests in Andhra Pradesh for separate Telangana," Phadanvis told PTI in an exclusive interview here.

It is unfortunate that people of Andhra, particularly Telangana region, had to indulge in violence over a period of time to keep up the tempo for creating new state, he said.

Open letter to CM on viability of separate Vidarbha
TNN | Dec 22, 2013, 01.36 AM IST

NAGPUR: It is unfortunate that chief minister Prithviraj Chavan gave an incorrect and misleading statement in "Meet the Press" programme organized on December 19.

According to him, the demand for a separate state of Vidarbha is based on sub-nationalist feelings, identity and emotions and not on hard facts. However, he conveniently forgot to mention the other sources of income of Vidarbha which are electricity, forests, minerals etc. It was expected of him to comment on the facts and figures given in the parallel assembly of Vidarbha state held on December 5 & 6, which was widely published in all the leading newspapers.

Does the chief minister mean that the 29 existing states were not created on the basis of hard economic facts? He would have done well to refer to the comments of Justice Fazal Ali of States Reorganization Commission that Vidarbha was a rich region and the rest of Bombay state was poor. This shows that the merger of Vidarbha in 1956 was not based on hard economic facts and it is now needed to be undone.

He should also have given the reasons why Vidarbha was not developed in Maharashtra during the last 57 years despite plenty of natural resources available such as water for irrigation, having the potential of perennial irrigation of 70% of cultivated land, rich mineral resources, forests etc. Will Mr Chavan please also state in his tenure of three years what new industries were set up in Vidarbha, resulting in more employment to local youth vis-a-vis industries closed during this period in Vidarbha? He also should have stated what advantages were provided by the 'rich' state of Maharashtra to the 'poor' region of Vidarbha.

The very figures quoted by the chief minister clearly indicated that trade, industry, agriculture etc in Vidarbha were grossly neglected to give advantage to 'rich' Maharashtra at the cost of poor Vidarbha. And if the very criterion given by Chavan is taken to be true, why is Maharashtra carrying the financial burden of a non-viable region of Vidarbha? They should do away with this burden and region at the very first opportunity and make the rest of Maharashtra richer. This may enable the government to pay the enormous debt of more than Rs 2.75 lakh crore on the prosperous state of Maharashtra!

The referendum of separate state issue conducted by NGO Janmanch have given a golden opportunity to the chief minister and his government to shed the burden of poor Vidarbha. The chief minister will do well to remember that all new states were created because the people of those regions wanted to be separate and not on the basis of the economic viability alone of those states. The economically viable and rich region of Vidarbha, as stated by the Fazal Ali Commission, became unviable after it was merged with Bombay state, and then Maharashtra. As Vidarbha has tremendous potential for development in all sectors, it is all the more necessary that Vidarbha should be a separate State. In this context, Chhattisgarh is a classic example. It has the highest rate of growth in the country after it became a separate entity.

The chief minister should have also explained why funds meant for Vidarbha were diverted to other parts, specifically western Maharashtra, and even the directions of the governor of Maharashtra to allot funds to Vidarbha were ignored?

On behalf of Vidarbha, we invite the chief minister to publish the factual data regarding the development of Vidarbha and come for an open discussion on the economic viability of a separate state of Vidarbha.

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely,

Madhukar Kimmatkar, Shriniwas Khandewale, Dhananjay Dharmik, PK Chakravorty, Devendra Parekh, Nitin Ronghe

This is problem with India. Angrez chale gaye but we still Stop work and do nothing to protest. I think your earlier suggestion of voting to person who works is the best approach.

Does anyone thinks about the sick person stuck in ambulance when political parties call for Bandh? or someone missing marriage or job interview b'cos some political goon call for 'Rail roko andolan' ?

First think you need is Stop asking Govt for 'everything'. Look at west, people follow traffic signal or keep roads and public parks clean, Govt doesn't keep watch on everyone. There are no traffic police in UK still people follow traffic rules unlike us Indian who just blame on govt and break every law in every possible way.

Nagpur's problem is that local businessmen are not national player. They didn't start factories or companies like Kirloskar or Bajaj in Pune or Tata Birla, Ambani as in Mumbai. They kept low profile and didn't aim big and that's reason politics or govt bodies has no interest in development of this region.

Crisis looms large over Vidarbha private power plants

The private power plants have been in the news as environmentalists alleged that they would ruin the ecology of the region. However, now these plants and their owners are staring at a bleak future. If the situation does not improve then an investment of Rs 20,000 crore will go down the drain and the lending banks will have to bear the brunt.

This not only means loss of 5,000 jobs but also loss of source of cheaper power. The private companies are producing power at the rate of Rs 3.50 per unit to Rs 4 per unit while Mahagenco's new unit's rates are above Rs 5 per unit.

Some of the power producers are thinking of filing a case in Competition Commission of India against monopoly of MSEDCL. Industries and consumer activists are also thinking on the same lines because they want MSEDCL power that is the cheapest and not from Mahagenco just because it is a government company.

Of the eight major power plants in Nagpur division six are not in good shape. Adani Power's Tiroda plant is doing so-so and the first unit of Dhariwal's plant in Warora has just been commissioned.

KSK's 540MW plant at Warora is operating at half the capacity. Reliance's 600MW Butibori plant has completely closed down its unit till April due to lack of demand. GMR has put up its 540MW plant at Warora for sale. Gupta Energy's 120MW plant at Usegaon is closed since June. Abhijeet Group too has closed down its plant and Ideal Energy has not been able to start its 270MW plant at Bela.

Dec 25, 2013, 01.59AM IST

चंद्रपूर : चंद्रपूर महाऔष्णिक वीज केंद्राच्या प्रदूषणाविरोधात वारंवार निवेदने देण्यात आली. मात्र अद्याप त्यावर तोडगा काढण्यात आलेला नाही. या मागण्यांच्या पाठपुराव्याचा एक भाग म्हणून ग्रीन प्लॅनेट संस्थेने ई-स्वाक्षरी व याचिका अभियान सुरू केले आहे. या याचिकेद्वारे औष्णिक वीज केंद्राचे चार जुने संच बंद करण्याची मागणी थेट मुख्यमंत्र्यांच्या ई-मेल वर पाठविण्यात येणार आहे.

प्रदूषणासाठी कारणीभूत अनेक बाबींवर कारवाईची मागणी करीत चंद्रपूर बचाव संघर्ष समितीने १४ डिसेंबर रोजी मोर्चा काढला. जिल्हाधिकाऱ्यांना निवेदनही देण्यात आले. या मोर्चाला मिळालेला प्रतिसाद बघता चंद्रपूरकरांचा प्रदूषणाविरोधातील रोष दिसून आला होता. या मागण्यांचा पाठपुरावा करण्याचा एक भाग म्हणून ग्रीन प्लॅनेट संस्थेने ई-स्वाक्षरी व याचिका अभियान सुरू केले आहे. ई-याचिका अभियानात सहभागी होण्यासाठी [email protected] यावर ई-मेल पाठवावा. प्रत्येक व्यक्तीला ई मेल वर संपूर्ण याचिका व ई-स्वाक्षरीसाठी संदेश पाठविला जाईल. प्रा. सचिन वझलवार यांच्या फेसबुकवरील लिंक वापरूनदेखील ही याचिका पाठविण्यासाठी क्लिक करता येणार आहे. चंद्रपुरातील जनतेने या याचिका अभियानामध्ये सहभागी व्हावे , असे आवाहन संस्थेचे प्रा. सुरेश चोपणे व डॉ. योगेश दुधपचारे यांनी केले आहे.

Nagpur's problem is that local businessmen are not national player. They didn't start factories or companies like Kirloskar or Bajaj in Pune or Tata Birla said:
State government didn't encourage industries in Vidarbha region from the start. Bajaj family is from Wardha. State govt forced them to have industry set up in western Maharashtra, didn't allow subsidies, water and electricity in Vidarbha region. Even Jamnalal Bajaj was forced to open MBA college in Mumbai and not Nagpur.
Founder of CDAC is from Akola, wanted to setup company in Vidarbha, but state govt did not provide internet lease line here, hence had to go to Pune. Till late 2002 even Nagpur was deprived of high speed internet by MH state only for the fear that it would overtake Pune. Same happened with Persistent later on.
MH state only gave union leaders culture to Vidarbha to destroy the industrial setup in region. Else Vidarbha has work ethic and discipline in its soil, look around the professionals and executives from this region working in various parts of the world.

Lets not blame Vidarbha politicians, they are as good as we are. And in any stretch of imagination or facts they are 10 times better than Western MH leaders (read gundas)
My request to all who hail from Vidarbha is to please have your own opinion, don't borrow anyone's opinion on the plight of Vidarbha and the reason behind it.

Vidarbhaites are soft spoken and of tgender heart by nature, easily prey to rash and swear handlings of western MH.
But time has come to stand up, guard our identity and secure our culture.
