Gujjar to protest outside assembly on 31 August

A Gujjar faction here today said it would hold a protest outside the Rajasthan Assembly on Tuesday to press for its demand for providing quota to the community. The Gehlot government made a number of promises to Gujjar leaders with regard to their demands, including a 5% special quota, but nothing concrete has been done, chief convener of Akhil Bhartiya Gujjar Arakshan Sangarsh Samiti Ramveer Singh Bidhuri told reporters here. Bidhuri, running a Gujjar faction other than Kirori Singh Bainsla, was on a 'janjagran abhiyan' to mobilise community people for the protest rally on August 31.
He said Gehlot's alleged dilly-dallying attitude had caused strong resentment among the community members and they would launch an agitation to press for their demands. Over 70 Gujjars held during various agitations were still in jails and the state government had done nothing other than giving false assurances to the community, Bidhuri said. The state government had announced a Rs282 crore package for community development under the Devnarayan Board, but the budget was cut down to mere Rs25 crore, he claimed.

Congress leader hari singh says gehlot is casteist

The state Congress initiated disciplinary action against its vice-president and former Cabinet minister Hari Singh for making serious allegations against party president and Union minister C P Joshi and chief minister Ashok Gehlot. On behalf of Joshi, the PCC general secretary Mumtaz Masih issued the show-cause notice to Singh, seeking an explanation on the latter's "anti-party activities" within seven days. "Singh made unfounded statements before media against the chief minister and the PCC president on August 16 and 17. The party takes it as grave indiscipline," Masih told TOI, adding that making baseless allegations against two senior party leaders just before the municipal elections (held on August 18) suggested ulterior motives of the PCC vice-president.
Singh, on the other hand, welcomed the party action against him, saying he had nothing to fear as whatever he said was true. "I am yet to receive the notice, but won't take seven days reply to it. Within three days I can explain how I was right in accusing Gehlot." Earlier this week, Singh had termed the chief minister a casteist, an anti- Jat leader and someone who had promoted large-scale corruption in the government. The Jat leader, in fact, demanded the party high command should set up an independent inquiry committee against him to examine if the charges made by him were false. "The party high command should act on the basis of such an inquiry and punish me only if I am found wrong," the four-time Congress MLA and former Lok Sabha MP said.

Major Laishram Jyotin Singh, who fought bare-handed with a heavily-armed terrorist and saved 10 colleagues during an attack on Indians in Kabul in February, has been posthumously given the Ashok Chakra, the highest peacetime gallantry award. Singh, from the Army Medical Corps, engaged the terrorist who struck on 26th February at a hotel which housed members of Indian Medical Mission. The 37-year-old from Manipur showed exemplary courage when a heavily-armed terrorist, after detonating an explosives-laden vehicle and killing three guards, entered the hotel building to kill any survivors. As the terrorist was firing from his AK rifle and lobbing grenades, Singh charged at him with bare hands and pinned him down to ensure that he no longer could do so. The Major continued to grapple with armed terrorist and did not let him go till the terrorist panicked and detonated his suicide vest, resulting in the instantaneous death of the terrorist and martyrdom of the officer. In the process, he saved the lives of 10 colleagues. Kirti Chakra, the second highest peacetime gallantry award, has been given to Captain Davinder Singh Jass (posthumously) and Chhattisgarh Superintendent of Police Vinod Kumar Choubey. Jass was given the award for counter-terrorist operations in Jammu and Kashmir while Chaubey will receive it for anti-naxal operations in Chhattisgarh. Besides the Ashok Chakra and two Kirti Chakras, 112 gallantry awards, including two Bar to Shaurya Chakras, nineteen Shaurya Chakras, two Bar to Sena Medal (Gallantry), 80 Sena Medals (Gallantry), three Nao Sena Medals (Gallantry) and five Vayu Sena Medal (Gallantry) have been given to armed forces and police personnel.

Rajasthan Housing Board to build 20,000 homes in Jaipur

The Rajasthan Housing Board (RHB) will soon announce two new residential schemes for the city as the state government has approved acquisition of nearly 714 hectares of land for the purpose. The two schemes proposed at Jagatpura and Goner in Siroli will lead to construction of nearly 20,000 residential units. While Indira Gandhi Nagar Extension is to come up over 314.30 hectares at Jagatpura, the Goner scheme set up on 400 hectare. "The two schemes will provide residential options for middle and low income groups. The details will be finalised by the board," said principal secretary (urban development).
The RHB has developed some of the most popular residential schemes in Jaipur. However, it has not announced any major residential project since the Indira Gandhi Nagar scheme in 2002. Land acquisition has also been slow during the period and the board activities have considerably reduced in the city. Even the new proposed schemes will take time before the construction begins. The acquisition process of Indira Gandhi Nagar Extension is in final stages while the first acquisition notification for the Goner scheme will be released soon under Section 27.

Govt to pick up Share in Barmer refinery

In what could give a new lease of life to the project, the Rajasthan Government has agreed to pick up 26 per cent stake in the proposed Barmer refinery to be set up by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC). Giving this information here, Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Jitin Prasada said the Rajasthan Government had been pressing for a 9-12-million tonne refinery at Barmer after Cairn India found 6.5 billion barrels of reserves that could produce 1.75 lakh barrels per day (8.75 million tonnes a year) of oil at plateau.
State-owned ONGC, which owns 30 per cent stake in the Cairn's oilfields, had originally proposed the project but later changed its mind stating that the project was not feasible in the absence of any kind of fiscal incentives by the State Government. “ONGC is in consultation with the Rajasthan Government on the feasibility of setting up a commercially viable refinery at Barmer,” Mr. Prasada said in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha. He said the State Government had indicated to take up 26 per cent stake in the proposed refinery, a condition an expert group headed by former Oil Secretary S. C. Tripathi had laid for making the project viable. The State Government is also in talks with Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) for a possible marketing tie-up .

Oil & Natural gas Corporation(ONGC) could invest about Rs 12,000 crore to built a six million tonne refinery in Rajasthan, as the Congress government in the state is willing to provide adequate fiscal incentives to the refinery. The refinery will initially process crude from the Cairn India-operated Barmer oil field in the state, which is at presented processed outside the state by various refineries. Cairn India and ONGC are 70:30 partners in the field. “The project could be announced after its feasibility is finalised,” a senior official in the government said, adding that the Rajasthan government was ready to provide adequate benefits and the Centre is more than willing.
The development was also confirmed by oil minister Murli Deora in the Rajya Sabha. “ONGC is in consultation with the government of Rajasthan on feasibility of setting up a refinery at Barmer,” he said.
