Lies, damn lies and Chinese lies.

The Communist lies:

Xi Jinping has delivered his speech in United nation and in its usual policy of deception, he did not hesitate in lying through his teeth. Here are some of the excerpts from his speech:

No country can gain from others’ difficulties or maintain stability by taking advantage of others’ troubles. To pursue a beggar-thy-neighbor policy or just watch from a safe distance when others are in danger will eventually land one in the same trouble faced by others. This is why we should embrace the vision of a community with a shared future in which everyone is bound together. We should reject attempts to build blocs to keep others out and oppose a zero-sum approach. We should see each other as members of the same big family, pursue win-win cooperation, and rise above ideological disputes and do not fall into the trap of “clash of civilizations”.

Look at the brazen shamelessness of this person. He closed down province of Wuhan but kept all airports open to spread the Chinese Virus around the world while telling through it’s ally Teldros in WHO that the virus does not spread human to human when it could spread by every contact possible that is touching, sharing airspace and worse by staying alive on surface for days together. It is however apparent that General Secretary of Communist Party apprehends what world is contemplating. This is his articulation:

COVID-19 reminds us that economic globalization is an indisputable reality and a historical trend. Burying one’s head in the sand like an ostrich in the face of economic globalization or trying to fight it with Don Quixote’s lance goes against the trend of history. Let this be clear: The world will never return to isolation, and no one can sever the ties between countries. We should not dodge the challenges of economic globalization. Instead, we must face up to major issues such as the wealth gap and the development divide. …………… We should say no to unilateralism and protectionism, and work to ensure the stable and smooth functioning of global industrial and supply chains.

After expressing these fears he makes an ultimate smart move by pleading a lie which no one can believe. Read on:

“China is the largest developing country in the world, a country that is committed to peaceful, open, cooperative and common development. We will never seek hegemony, expansion, or sphere of influence. We have no intention to fight either a Cold War or a hot war with any country. We will continue to narrow differences and resolve disputes with others through dialogue and negotiation. We do not seek to develop only ourselves or engage in a zero-sum game. We will not pursue development behind closed doors.”

Can there be a greater blatent lier than Xi Jinping? His armies are on Northern borders of India and have killed 20 soldiers while suffering over 100 fatalities yet he talks of peace. His country’s market is inaccessible to market goods like pharma to automobile while there is intellectual property violation by copy cat goods and automobiles with no system of redress, yet he talks of open door policy. Needless to mention that Google Twitter Facebook, all are inaccessible in China.

However this last para of speech is hilarious. Xi Jinping has audacity to talk about democracy!! Read and enjoy:

Let us join hands to uphold the values of peace, development, equity, justice, democracy and freedom shared by all of us and build a new type of international relations and a community with a shared future for mankind. Together, we can make the world a better place for everyone.

Does Xi Jinping thinks that whole world is a fool? Why will it blindly believe the words of a known and proven lier responsible for nearly a million death due to Chinese Virus?

Why should any one trust one word of Xi Jinping? What you think about him? Share your thoughts in comments below.

Farmer’s Freedom of trade bills passed demolishing another Nehru’s Citadel.

Farmer are free to sell the agricultural produce as they may choose. It may come as rude shock that until today every farmer was bound to sell it’s agricultural produce at the ‘specified market’ which was a euphemism of a close corporation consisting of politicians rather their proxies. The ‘Management’ of ‘Market’ had the power to dictate the price of the produce.

The Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) was introduced as a reform to uplift the living of farmers but it subjugated them forcing them to make ‘illegal’ sale to outsiders without intervention of APMC. It was a cause of corruption and hardship for farmers. India had a unique institution called ‘Aadhatiya’ which was a mixture of middle man for sale and a money lander to finance agriculture operation. These Aadhatiya which were to be replaced by APMC but they became management of APMC. Three bills will pave the way for the sale of agricultural produce free from traders / Aadhatia/Dalal/Middle man. It will also protects to the farmers from market fluctuations through ‘Contract Farming’.

In most APMCs, buyers have to route all purchases through licenced Aadhatiyas(middlemen). These middlemen charge a commission for their “services” — many times, both from the buyer and seller. The Aadhatiya is also often a moneylender, supplying seeds, fertilizers and pesticides to farmers on credit. They, then, are forced to sell through him and settle their dues in perpetuity. Also, mandi fees ranges from 0.5% to 5% on the value of the sale, while varying across states and commodities. (Here is a good article explaining the issues in detail.)

Here is Congress leader Kapil explaining the the Dalal or Middleman at work:

The three Bills named as Agriculture Reforms Bill 2020 Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Price Assurance and Contract Bill for Agricultural Services and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill were enacted as Ordinance on 5 June 2020.

Arun Shourie: The Inefficient with Integrity.

Arun Shourie in my book is a sincere person. Atleast until he sided with likes of Yashwant Sinha and Prashant Bhushan a known carpet bagger. Shouri is author of many well researched masterpieces. My favourite being Eminent Historians. It is an excellent book about the official historians of Nehru’s India and their methods to spin lies.

Integrity vs. Competence.

Between 1999 to 2004 Arun Shouri was Minister for disinvestment. While his honesty is beyond question, his Ministership raises questions about necessity of competence in governance. Integrity can not be a substitute for wisdom. Shourie all his life had no commercial experience yet he was made to sell government properties at best price!! The result was disaster. While it is a good example to quote that a teetotaller is best bar tender, it is not of universal application. A tippler if he keeps restraint, may prove to be more efficient.

Sale at price below market value.

Recently orders have been passed by a court to register an FIR against Arun Shourie, for his action as a minister in the Vajpayee government.

A special CBI court in Jodhpur has ordered a criminal case against Arun Shourie, former disinvestment secretary Pradeep Baijal and three others for alleged corruption and fraud in a government-run hotel in 2002.

Special CBI Judge Puran Kumar Sharma also ordered that the Laxmi Vilas Palace Hotel in Udaipur be handed over to the state government. The court has given this order in the case of disinvestment of Laxmi Vilas Hotel at a much lower price than the market price. The hotel was earlier run by the Tourism Development Corporation of India, but in 2002 it was sold to Bharat Hotels Limited, which now runs the Lalit Group of Hotels.

The judge passed this order while hearing a CBI closure report in the case of alleged loss of Rs 244 crore to the government from the sale of the hotel. The CBI report stated that there was no evidence to initiate prosecution against the accused in the disinvestment process.

However, the court disagreed with the central agency CBI’s argument in the case and criticized it for presenting a closure report. The court said prima facie it appears that the then minister Arun Shourie and the then secretary Pradeep Baijal misused their positions and caused a loss of Rs 244 crore to the central government in the deal.

The other three accused in the case are Ashish Guha, the managing director of the then investment firm Lazard India Ltd, Kantilal Karamsi Vikamsey, the head of the then valuation firm Kanti Karamsi & Co and the chairman of Bharat Hotels Ltd and Jyotsna Suri. The special court ordered that they be booked under sections 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code and section 13 (1) D of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

In other words the caucus of these people manipulated to sell a property worth 250 crores at meagre 7.52 crores.

The court said that accused persons should be summoned through arrest warrant. Also, the court ordered the Udaipur district collector to take possession of the hotel immediately.

As stated earlier Arun Shourie was the Union Minister of Communications, Information Technology and Disinvestment in the then government led by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee during 1999-2004.

CBI had registered an FIR on August 13, 2014, alleging that Baijal misused his official position on the basis of preliminary investigation and criminal conspiracy in the disinvestment of the Lakshmi Vilas Palace Hotel. According to the FIR, the hotel was initially valued at Rs 252 crore. But in the end it was disinvested for Rs 7.52 crore.

Arun Shourie was one of the Ministers in Vajpayee Government who even though was not dishonest brought bad name by all his disinvestment deals. All deals were undervalued. It is a lesson for the present Modi Government which is not going out for out right sale and insted of resorting to disinvestment though offloading of its shareholding in Government Companies. Bharat Dynamics was on such company in which Goverment reduced it’s holding by selling 15% shares therein.

Umer Khalid arrested and remanded to police custody for 10 days.

Umer Khalid was arrested a day before yesterday and surprisingly he was remanded to police custody for ten days. Umer Khalid has been arrested as master mind of riots in North West Delhi in February 2020.

Umer Khalid

Umar Khalid, a post graduate, was born in Jamia Nagar, New Delhi and has lived there for the last 30 years. His father, Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas, is from Maharashtra, while his mother is from Western Uttar Pradesh. S.Q.R. Ilyas was member of SIMI and conveniently seperated from it before it was banned as a terror sponsoring unlawful organization.

Umer Khalid last stole the lime light with his videos going viral where he was chanting support for convicted terrorists like Afzal Guru and Yakoob Memon.

The fact that court has granted his custody to police for ten days means Khalid would be taken to many places out of Delhi and it would not be convenient for police to produce him in between. Generally courts prefer to give custody for three days to ensure the safety of accused.

It is therefore possible that some more facts and involvement of more people may surface after ten days custody.

This arrest of Umer Khalid is under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. Therefore he going to be parked in prison for long time.

All the best to terrorist sympathisers on Twitter and especially those in Movie Industry and financed from across the border.

Joe Biden too joins in China bashing over Tibet.

Presidential candidate Joe Biden from the Democratic Party in the US condemned China’s plan to increase control over Tibet, saying that if he comes to power his administration will ban Chinese officials responsible for human rights violations in Tibet .

Last week Biden said, ‘My administration will ban Chinese officials responsible for human rights violations in Tibet and will also include the Tibet Language Service in Radio Free Asia and Voice of America radio services so that the world’s information can reach the people of Tibet. Along with this, many other steps will be taken in support of the people of Tibet.
