Chandigarh: Taking a serious note of the incidents of stone-pelting on the Delhi-Chandigarh Shatabdi Express train, authorities in Haryana’s Sonipat district have warned villagers from indulging in such actions.
Sonipat Deputy Commissioner Rajiv Rattan warned villagers between Rathdhana and Sonipat railway stations that strict action would be taken against those throwing stones at the train.
Unidentified miscreants had pelted stones at the Delhi-Chandigarh-Kalka Shatabdi Express on Monday evening when it was running between Rathdhana and Sonipat railway stations, leading to damage to window panes of the train. Following the incident, villagers of Rathdhana were warned through public announcement to refrain from such actions.
“Block Development and Panchayat Officer (BDPO) Rai, Ram Singh, held a meeting with the villagers of Rathdhana and also advised the children not to repeat such incidents in future,” a state government spokesman said here.
“This incident has been taken seriously. If people are found involved in such incidents, cases will be registered leading to rigorous punishment,” he added.
Incidents of stone-pelting on the Shatabdi Express are reported often in Sonipat, Panipat and Karnal districts of Haryana. At times, the stones have been able to break through the double-glass of the train windows.
The Amritsar-Delhi Shatabdi Express was attacked with stones in September 2009 when Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was travelling on it. The stones, however, missed hitting the coach in which he was in.
Campaigning for Gujarat Assembly elections to be held in two phases on 9th (phase 1 voting day has passed) and 14 th December is in full swing. The scion of the Nehru dynasty is trying all stunts to win Gujarat for his Congress Party.
He is making rounds of numerous temples in Gujarat proclaiming himself as a ‘Shiv Bhakt Hindu’. Indira married a Muslim man Feroze Khan in a London Mosque. Many people in India are still ignorant about this fact and consider Feroze a Parsi.
Feroze’s mother was a Parsi before marriage to Feroze’s Muslim father but since, she converted to Islam, their son Feroze Khan was a Muslim.
Indira also embraced Muslim religion for marrying Feroze Khan. Her Muslim name was Maimuna Begum but she kept this fact well hidden so, as not to harm her political career.
Rajeev married Sonia Maino, a Catholic Christian. The real names of their children are Raul and Bianca Maino. They both hold Italian Passports as well but in order to fool Indians they have adopted the names of Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.
It is incomprehensible that the aforesaid Raul Maino is claiming himself to be a Hindu now, just to garner votes for Congress in Gujarat in the name of Hindutva.
Raul while addressing an election meeting in Porbandar on 24 th November said that Prime Minister Modi gave Rs. 33,000 Crores to Tata Company for manufacturing Nano model of automobiles. He went on to say that no Tata Nano is visible on the roads of Gujarat.
When Tata Motors’ Nano manufacturing plant at Singur in West Bengal faced protests in 2008; Modi, the then chief minister of Gujarat invited the auto-maker to Gujarat and extended benefits like allotting land at concessional rates and tax exemptions for setting up the plant at Sanand near Ahmedabad.
A manufacturing plant of a big company like Tata assures employment opportunities for the locals besides making the state a more attractive investment destination for both domestic as well as foreign companies. Every Chief Minister in India would have done what Modi did at that time.
Modi didn’t do anything wrong by providing a few concessions to Tata. Nowhere, did he provide Rs. 33,000 Crores to Tata furthermore, Raul’s statement at the rally while addressing Gujarati locals; “You lost land, electricity, water to Tata Nano. And if you are not seeing any Tata Nano here, then, what type of magic is this” is completely absurd.
Immediately after the signing of the Nano deal, Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation took six villages under acquisition in Sanand. The government of Gujarat at that time paid the price of land at Rs. 1200 per square meter.
It was four times higher than the market rate prevailing at that time, resulting in the farmers of this region buying Audis and BMWs.
If the Nano model didn’t turn out to be a commercial success, what has Modi got to do with it? Every big business house knows that not all of their products would turn out to be profitable.
Mr. Maino also said that the amount of money Narendra Modi gave for manufacturing Nano Cars was equal to the UPA government’s allocation for funding MNREGA since Raul frequently likes to harp about the success of MNREGA. Here are the facts;
This scheme only guarantees jobs for 100 days a year. A year has 365 days. What about the rest of the 265 days? The jobs in MNREGA involve completely useless and unproductive tasks like digging ditches and then filling them back with sand. This MNREGA scheme is a total failure and waste of government funds.
MNREGA has turned majority of its recipients into lazy, good-for- nothing, unemployables. This scheme must be abolished with immediate effect.
Raul tried to woo the fishermen of Gujarat by saying that Congress government used to provide them with subsidy, which covered 25 percent of fishermen’s expenses on diesel and petrol.
The question is; where and when would this useless subsidy culture end?
Congress is just playing ‘Poverty Politics’. These doles and freebies make people indolent and uncompetitive thus preventing the progress of a nation.
Raul wants Indian masses to always stand infront of Congress politicians with folded hands like the old “Maii Baap” culture pioneered by Nehru and later followed by Indira and Rajeev.
This pattern continued until the only sensible Congress Prime Minister till now, P.V. Narsimha Rao liberalized the Indian economy in the early 1990’s.
It’s highly disappointing that inspite of Raul Maino’s, relatively young age and wide travels, he does not possess any constructive and innovative ideas to make India a better place.
Raul should do himself and the nation a favor by retiring from politics. He anyway does not need to work for a living and can enjoy the Billions amassed by his ancestors through masquerading as fake Gandhis.

At a time of tepid job growth and continuing income disparities, the major challenge is to make the youth of the country entrepreneurial and not job seekers, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu said on Thursday.
“Disparities continue to remain in India and so there is a need for inclusive growth… there is the need to take care of the suppressed, oppressed and depressed,” Venkaiah Naidu said at the Bharatiya Yuva Shakti Trust’s (BYST) silver jubilee celebrations here with Britain’s Prince Charles as the chief guest.
“The challenge for us is to make the youth entrepreneurial, and not become job seekers,” Venkaiah Naidu said pointing to the NDA government’s various initiatives to encourage youth enterprises like Startup India, Standup India and the Mudra financing scheme for underprivileged sections.
Modelled on Prince Charles’ Trust for business startups, BYST, founded by Lakshmi Venkatesan, daughter of former President R. Venkatraman, is engaged in building rural entrepreneurship — “grampreneurs” — as also enterprise among under-privileged sections, which includes business mentoring. The current BYST chairman is Bajaj Group chief, Rahul Bajaj.
“Without mentoring, it would be very difficult to set up startups, with all the business, marketing and other vital issues involved in the first two-three years,” Prince Charles said in his address at the International Mentoring Summit organized by BYST to mark its 25 years.
“What amazes me are the sheer number of jobs these young entrepreneurs had created. The aim of such a project should be to create a virtual cycle of creating entrepreneurs who can then invest in the future of business,” Charles said referring to his trust.
BYST was officially launched in 1992 by Prince Charles and expanded its operations to six major regions of India.
Out of these six regions, four — Delhi, Chennai, Pune and Hyderabad — run the urban programme while two regions — Haryana and Maharashtra — run the rural programme.(IANS)
