TOILET OR FOOD: स्वच्छ भारत अभियान‎: MURDER OF AN ADIVASI YOUTH IN KERALA - ടോയ്ലറ്റോ ഭക്ഷണമോ: കേരളത്തിലെ ആദിവാസി യുവാവിന്‍റെ കൊലപാതകം

The death of an Adivasi/tribal youth who died recently in Kerala as a result of mob beating for allegedly stealing food is bringing back my memories to the age old French novel Les Miserables written by Victor Hugo. The story of a boy who took a loaf of bread and thereafter branded as a thief during his life time.  More than that, what is saddened me is the uproar of a public personality in a public meeting recently in Kerala to the effect that he was instrumental in constructing toilets in Adivasi/Tribal areas and made mocking remarks at those who had made adverse remarks against the Prime Minister’s  Swachh Bharat Abhiyan like ‘food first and then toilet’ through social media. 

It also brings back to my memory to the outburst of a Bombay High Court division bench while hearing a public interest litigation on malnutrition deaths as reported by the Times of India, ‘MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Wednesday lambasted the state government for its "complete apathy" and "criminal negligence" that has lead to worsening malnutrition deaths in tribal areas of Maharashtra's eleven districts, including Palghar, close to Mumbai. "This is shocking," remarked a bench of Justice Vidyasagar Kanade and Justice Swapna Joshi when told by advocate appearing for petitioner Kasturba Adivasi Mahila Sangh, that nearly 18,000 children have died in the state during 2015-2016 financial year itself.’

As a reply to the mocking remark of that famous public personality, I reiterate that the primary responsibility of the Government should be to ensure food for the poor and then only rest of the things like toilet, etc. Again time will only vouch for genuineness of the Abhiyan whether it is only in paper like many other schemes and a future toilet scam.

If it is not a miracle then what? Each time only after the money laundering accused people were left the country, Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) start their swooping action-action-action. We are already acquainted with such actions, one in the ongoing case of Kingfisher scam and now the Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam. Whether these cases are mere coincidences, or a deliberate silence to facilitate them to escape from the scene and to make the public fools, that to when the present Government is affirming and telling every now and then “My Government is corruption free”? If these two assumptions are not the case, then definitely it could be the miracles happened because those accused persons are devotees of some supernatural power and they came to their rescue by making these agencies unconscious till they left the country.

Apart from this, the statement of the PNB Managing Director’s statement could be believed to the effect that the Rs.11,300 crore scam had already been started way back from the year 2011, that too without their knowledge and even a suspicion and these lower grade persons were running such a huge scam, then the next assumption is that there is no need for such people in the higher places and the bank will go on and on without their presence. Then why to feed these people?

Then comes the next very important entity who is also not aware of these happenings is the Chartered Accountant who certified the accounts of the Bank for all these years without any hint at any stage.

Somehow they got two scapegoats to absolve from all the responsibilities and liabilities. Why to worry about responsibility and liability, when there is public to make up these unwarranted NPA losses through the taxes and penalty on shortage of minimum balance in the bank accounts thrust upon them by the Government during the Demonetization?

I was watching the TV on the budget day awaiting for an announcement from the Finance Minister of the much delayed Rs.15,00,000/- offer to each bank account holders at least at the fag end of the term of the present Government. Not only that, I was also making my own budget as to how I could spend it. But to my shock what I heard is the announcement of a much more sugar coated scheme. It is nothing other than the announcement of the Rs. 5 lakh health scheme for the 10 crore poor and vulnerable families in the country with a population of 50 crore out of the approximate total of 125 crores. It is nicknamed as the “world’s largest government funded health care programme” may be with an eye on the Guinness/Limca book entry. It looks to me as a fairy tale when I made a rough calculation.

Suppose, the 10 crore families utilise the Rs.5 lakh assistance, the total would come to Rs.50 lakh crores. Even if only half the number of families avail the facility, total expenditure would be Rs.25 lakh crores. Against this, what the Finance Minister had said in para 59 of the budget speech that, “Adequate funds will be provided for smooth implementation of this programme”. From where? From the estimated total estimated revenue receipt for the financial yearRs.1725738 crore? (see attachment).Or by deducting it from the crores and crores black money expected from the Swiss Bank? Then what about the 15 lakh? Or this scheme is also an election promise to be ignored?      (Visit my HOME PAGE: )
