Government Failed Again: 21 Peacock Found Dead In The Forest Of Madhya Pradesh

Its look like the government is falling on every front to take any meaningful action against Peacock poachers. As the new case of the same comes into light in which 21 peacocks were found dead in Sumawali forest in Madhya Pradesh.

“On the prima facie, it looks like the peacock is killed for their valuable assets, the feathers.” Said the police who was present at the spot. “We will conduct the investigation and will nab down the people who all are behind this”

This is not the first case where peacocks were found dead in the country. In Kanpur, six peacocks were found dead. On July 9, 2015, around 24 peacocks found dead in Rajasthan’s Ajmer district.

The hunters have no other way but to kill the bird to obtain its feather to fetch good money. According to the wildlife protection Act, if the peacock’s feathers shed naturally is legally allowed in the country.

The national bird of India is on a target for a very long time now for their feathers. However, the laws to protect the national birds seem to have failed as the number has continuously gone up over the years. A report that was published in World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has stated that the number of peacocks in India, from the time of independence, has gone to 50 percent.

Sedition Charges Slapped For Celebrating India’s Defeat In Champions Trophy.

Madhya police take shelter of sedition provisions to punish 15 youths for celebrating the defeat of India in the finals against Pakistan in the just-concluded Champions Trophy cricket tournament held in Oval, Britain.

Madhya Pradesh police arrested 15 Muslims in Mohad, which is nearly 24 km from the Burhanpur district headquarter and slapped much-abused sedition charges against them for allegedly celebrating Pakistan’s victory against India in the finals of the Champions Trophy.

These youths were arrested on Monday evening on charges of shouting slogans in favor of Pakistan and bursting crackers. The accused would be produced before the court on Tuesday.

The accused have been booked under 120B (punishment for criminal conspiracy) and 124A (sedition) of IPC.
This news brings to light the narrow-mindedness of some people. The 15 accused were only celebrating, and celebration means joy. Others, most probably, saw it as an act of aggression and did not find it appropriate.

There is always the situation of win and loss in a game. What happens if India doesn’t win for once? Does this mean that the winning team and their supporters cannot celebrate their victory? Is it written in the holy books that India has to win every time in every situation?

This is ridiculous as to what the police did. To arrest people under the act of sedition does not make any sense!! Do the police even know what sedition truly is? They need to consult dictionaries to get the proper meaning!! How can celebrating a victory, a joyous occasion for something, happen to be sedition?

There is only one thing left to say. People should not be harassed for petty things and everyone’s views and beliefs should be respected, come what may.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s Long Inning Is All Set For An Honorable Exit?

Madhya Pradesh has now become a new battleground. With many forces coming into play after what started with a peaceful protest which took the violent turn after the alleged firing from the police which resulted in the death of 5 farmers. Since then, the blame game is in the picture to portray oneself as the ‘Messiah of the Farmers.’ What raises the eyebrows more is the deafening silence of the duo, Prime Minster Narendra Modi and the Party President Amit Shah on the subject.

In the past, Modi and Amit Shah has been vocal on the issues of farmer unrest, whether it stirred the economies of country’s economic capital Maharashtra or the house for the largest of the farmers, Uttar Pradesh. Narendra Modi speech uses to have references of the farmers and would help the situations in the country. But this time, the duo had left the Shivraj Singh Chauhan on the dry river beds of politics.

The three-term chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is left in the abyss to tackle the situation on its own. In a desperate manner to push himself out from the tarnishing situation, Shivraj Singh Chouhan had gone on a bizarre fast in a time when high-command from the BJP has left him out to dry.
Growing his stature year-by-year, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, in a way, had successfully managed to send the fears down the spine to the high-command, especially PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, as the competent PM candidate for 2019.

The other thing which makes Shivraj Singh Chouhan the most demanded PM is his image of being ‘Secular.’ The grey area where most of the BJP leaders lacks.

A fourth term for Chouhan would make him too powerful and in a league of his own. Hence the utter silence and the licence to Chouhan baiters such as Kailash Vijayvargiya to attack him. Vijayvargiya is a Shah favourite.
The other thing is that Shivraj Singh Chouhan could be Manohar Parrikar’s replacement as defence minister, a post which is under Arun Jaitley as a dual portfolio with Finance Minster. Paprikar’s readiness in going back to Goa despite being the Defence Minster in itself proves how strong the Union Ministers are in the Centre.

Adding to the list of things which is keeping the duo on a back foot to openly support Shivraj Singh Chouhan government is the mystery revolving around the ‘Vyapam Scam,’ which has been now the pain for the BJP to overlook.
Sources close to the Shivraj Singh Chouhan reveal that her wife, Sadhna Singh, handles the transfer cases of the officials. The person would contact the Sadhna Singh and their work would get an accelerated speed.

At one point Chouhan was propped up as a rival to Modi by former party president LK Advani whose acolyte he is. This has never been forgiven or forgotten by Modi. When Modi was Gujarat CM, Chouhan used to project himself as the antithesis of Modi, by celebrating Eid wearing a skull cap with Muslims and making much of the communal harmony he maintained in MP. Like Sushma Swaraj, he was opposed to Modi being projected as PM.
Sources add that in any case, the MP elections will be contested on Modi’s face as has become the norm after UP.

The BJP even contested Delhi’s municipal election using Modi’s image. As the larger political story unfolds, watch the next move. It will be Chouhan coming to Delhi.

#GoodNews: MP is celebrating its first Gay Pride Parade today!

LGBTQ community of Bhopal has come together to celebrate its first ever Gay Pride Parade today in the state of Madhya Pradesh. Pride parade or sometimes known as pride marches or pride festivals is a march involving members of LGBTQ community and their allies who come together to celebrate gender equality, love, and different sexualities and to fight against heterosexual stereotype.

Times of India reported that the carnival, where the community is also discussing several important issues related to LGBTQ rights has begun on May 13th.

LGBTQ activist Harish Ayer told TOI that the idea only came to fruition because some courageous ones were able to reach out to local LGBTQ community; he further adds that many people in Bhopal had sent him messages, seeking supports from him.

“If a gay pride parade could happen in Lucknow, there was no reason why one couldn’t be organised in Bhopal,” Iyer said.

The parade will start from Van Vihar in Bhopal at 5 pm today and end at Hotel Lake.

It Took MP Police 48 Years To Crack A Case, Only To Learn That The Accused Died 21 Years Ago!

A bizarre incident in Madhya Pradesh added another feather to the cap in the already deteriorating image of Madhya Pradesh police. Madhya Pradesh police took 48 years to arrest an accused in a theft case, and when the police reached the doorsteps of the accused with pride, only to be left red-faced after knowing the harsh reality. The accused which the police was looking for 48 years had died 21 years ago. Yes, you read it right.

The case dates back to 1969, where a case was filed against the suspect who was accused of stealing an electric wire in Bhind districts in Chambal region of the state. The value of the stolen wire was estimated at Rs 10 back then.

The MP electricity board filed the complaint with Madhya Pradesh police and suspect was named. The case also reached to Supreme Court of India. The court issued the arrest warrant against the accused. However, the suspect, Mahadev, remains untraced.

The case saw the day of the light when the recent order came to dispose of all the old arrest warrants that had not been executed. This order led the police to the doorsteps of the accused, only to find him dead 21 years ago.

“The permanent arrest warrant was issued by the court in this case in 2005. Recently, when the drive to execute pending warrants was initiated afresh, once again efforts to trace him began,” a Bhind police official who didn’t want to be named told Huffington Post.

“The problem was that there was confusion about the suspect’s identity. When the case was registered, perhaps the attention was not given to it as it may have been considered a minor theft case. Hence, there was no other information about Mahadev, which is a common name, unless address or father’s name is known,” the police official said.

The officer later told that the police was succeeded in finding the accused earlier this month, but when police reached to nab Mahadeb Kushwaha who was a resident of the Good town, it learned that he had died in 1995.

Madhya Pradesh cop offers to donate kidney to Sushma Swaraj

Minister of External Affair Sushma Swaraj’s candid admission about her health issues on Twitter triggered an outpour of adulation for the 64-year-old leader with offers of kidney donation coming in not only from India, but also from abroad.

An overwhelmed Swaraj, who has been going for AIIMS for dialysis daily and returns home in the evening to work from her home, replied: “With your good wishes and Lord Krishna’s blessings, I will be able to come out of this situation.”

Among the many who offered their kidneys has been a Baloch activist Ahmar Mustikhan. “It will be a great honor if my Baloch kidney may help our sister Sushma Swaraj; this will be a small token of thanks for raising an issue at UN (sic),” Mustikhan wrote on twitter.

“Some friends have also offered their kidneys for my transplant. I have no words to express my deep sense of gratitude towards them,” Swaraj added. The Minister has been helping out people in distress with the same alacrity even now. On her person intervention visa has been issued to a Pakistani woman who wanted to come to India for her child’s treatment.

Organs and tissue transplants are governed by the Transplantation of Human Organs and Tissues Act, 2011. Organs can either be retrieved from cadavers or from brain dead patients with their family consent, or may be donated by living donors. The law recognises three types of living donors: near relatives like parents, siblings, grandparents, grandchildren or spouses; others who can donate for “affection and attachment” or for a special reason but not for financial considerations; and swap donors where near relative donors are swapped between patients whose own family members are incompatible. (For example, if a husband is willing to donate a kidney to his wife but is not compatible, he can do so to another patient, provided a near relative of that patient is compatible with his wife and can donate a kidney to her.
