Modi Govt. Budget a fraud on wretched of the earth

Reacting on the Union Budget of BJP government at the Centre, Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party holding Masters Degree in Law from London University described the Modi government budget as a fraud on the wretched of earth that exceed 50% of the population of India today. He said that India achieved freedom 69 years back. Its’ economy was focused only on the urban areas and cities whereas more than half of the population living in the rural areas was neglected. Education can be one example as more than 60% people, Indian citizens have remained illiterate till date. 80% of the farmers have been farming on the land which is dependent only on rain. Prof.Bhim Singh said that the present budget has been floated only with the help of computers and imagination without considering the economic standards and educational background of the people living in the rural areas. Prof.Bhim Singh that health and education sectors dealing with the rural areas has completely been ignored for the simple reason that the present rulers have no sense of imagination about the rural life and their necessities.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that 60% of the people in the villages are illiterate after six decades of independence. The economy is controlled by about 10% people who have monopolized the entire business and trade besides controlling the Parliament. Prof.Bhim Singh described the NDA budget as non-dependable accounts, which deals only with the upper class and to some extent with the middle class.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the present government functionaries are share holder in all trading and business houses with the result more than half of the population in India is deprived of the benefit of the monopoly, business and trading houses in India.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the present budget has nothing to offer to the wretched of the earth, the begging boys and girls on the streets, the neglected people in the rural areas. There is no clean drinking water for the wretched of earth. The society has been vertically divided between 10 to 15 percent and plus 60% of the population. 60% of the population has been living without medical care, school education even without reasonable clothing and houses. The picture which Modi budget has projected is not the real picture of India.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that jugglery of taxes, its relation with the hoarding and black money is the greatest tragedy for the 80% people of India who have been living in a state of affairs which is no better than the living of cattle in the country. He asked the great parliamentarians to study the facilities offered to a patient in a hospital managed by Delhi Administration as compare to a hospital managed by the business houses in Delhi itself.

Prof.Bhim Singh asked the Members of Parliament who represent the people of this country to answer what planning or schemes have been evolved in the country to eradicate poverty?

What is the programme, planning and scientific strategy to eradicate poverty and provide uniform education to every child in the educational institutions. What is the strategy to provide similar and equal facilities to the patients in every hospital in the country. The main question which the people of this country are going to ask the political leadership is how long shall the Parliament take to spread literacy throughout the country and provide free health care to every citizen besides reasonable work/job to every citizen to help him earn his living and live with honour and dignity. This was the concept of socialist republic of India.

Prof.Bhim Singh has invited any Parliamentarian or a leader of any political party to join in an open debate on the fraud being committed on the majority of citizens of this country through the budgetary manipulation. This is the budget which is meant for the privileged and capitalists society to enable them to rob the under-privileged people in this country who constitute more than 60% of its population.

Voice of Africa reminds of Gandhi, Nehru & Indira contributions for Indo-African friendship and unity

It was a great occasion when the world witnessed 54 sovereign African nations sitting with India in New Delhi in 2015, just a repeat of Bandung conference in 1954 and emergence of Non-Aligned Movement in search for peace and progress of the third world. The visit of 20 heads of African states and participation of 54 African nations has left a unique message for the Indian leadership that rule India today that the contribution to consolidate friendship and unity of India with African world by Mahatma Gandhi, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru and Mrs. Indira Gandhi deserved attention of the new generation that India under the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru and Mrs. Indira Gandhi contributed tremendously to reach out to the people of East, West, North and South Africa. The rulers today should not forget that past history that gave rise to India as India’s ambassador of peace, cooperation and mutual co-existence has to be kept in mind with the political actors of that time.” This was reaction of Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate and expert on Indo-African and Indo-Arab relations with several books to his credit. It was Prof.Bhim Singh (then globetrotter Bhim Singh) who travelled around the world on motorcycle(s) between 1967-1973. He is the only person in the world to cross Sahara Desert on motorcycle from Morocco to Senegal via Spanish Sahara in 20 days in 1971 on motorcycle creating history.

Bhim Singh travelled from North Africa to West Africa, Central Africa, South Africa and to East Africa on road in about seven months. His book, ‘Around the World on Motorcycle’ provides the glimpses of the African world, its people, its culture, its  geographical formation, colonial affects of different colonial cultures. North Africa from Sudan to Mauritania is predominantly part of Arab world wedded with Arab language and culture, Arab civilisation and history. This region is placed at different situation politically, socially and even ideologically. India has not cared to develop socio, cultural or political relations with this part of the African world after Mrs. Gandhi’s period. Similarly West Africa has a different kind of political situation which include Senegal (French Culture), Ghana and small other states. The South Africa under colonial rule of Netherlands has slightly different political culture and situation in that part. The Congo which was ruled by Belgium needs a different approach to understand its problems and situation. East African world is all together different story. This part was governed by British colonial rulers who left a different kind of culture and system demolishing the ancient African cultural heritage. US President Obama’s father was also a national of East African state of Kennya.

The Prime Minister’s address to 54 African nations on 29th October, 2015 though full of fresh ideas, proposals to bring 1.25 billion Indians to 1.25 billion Africans for bringing two great civilisations of the world closer yet it did not come out with any proposal or suggestion to develop structure for sharing information between India and 54 African nations which are placed in different cultural and political platforms.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said, “My personal experience after having travelled through Africa on broken roads and even on donkeys in the Congo when he lost his motorcycle has made him to learn about the loving and the most beautiful people in the African world who have been kept aloof from the wretched of the world by the Western colonial powers.” Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should propose to set up different research centre for different regions of the African world. India must understand that Africa needs much more than solar energy or FDIs in 54 African nations. India has a chance to work for African nations to re-write their history which has been destroyed by the colonial rulers; Italians (Libya), French (Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal), Netherlands (South Africa where Prince of human degradation on the basis of colour still shine sharp), Britain (East Africa and Sudan where the two nation theory is still burning the fire of division, partition and racism).

Prof.Bhim Singh hoped that media in India and the men who understand the African history and composite culture should come out boldly and fearlessly in consolidating the unity, friendship, understanding with the African people so that India and Africa can play a bigger role. It is hoped that African heads of states and the leadership from 54 countries take a cue from the Constitution of India, its democracy and respect for fundamental rights of all human beings on earth. That shall provide solar energy to every person in the East and the West. Let Africa awake and let India shine.
