Draft food security bill is hoax-Times of India

Draft food security bill may irk Sonia, states, SC

Govt Version Diverges From Cong Chief’s Vision

Nitin Sethi | TNN

Different Takes

* Centre to have final say on BPL numbers, quantum of foodgrain.
States have distributed 10cr BPL cards; Centre’s estimate is 6.5cr

** No mention of price of subsidized foodgrain, hinting Centre wants to keep option of higher price open.
Cong manifesto had said ration would be available at Rs 3/kg

*** Bill seeks to wind up Antyodaya scheme, limit guarantee to 25kg.
SC wanted govt to widen scheme and increase PDS quota to 35kg


New Delhi: The government has readied the draft of its promised Food Security Act but the bare provisions appear to fall short of the pledge on many counts. It could not only trigger a faceoff with the states but also cause heartburn to the Supreme Court and displease Congress chief Sonia Gandhi who had prepared a draft and sent it to the Prime Minister’s Office last June.
The Bill is a result of a promise in the Congress’s election manifesto — of a law guaranteeing nutritional security for all. But the draft, prepared by the food ministry headed by Sharad Pawar, runs short of how it was visualized by Sonia Gandhi.
The draft Bill proposes that the Centre will have the final word on both the number of people in each state living below the poverty line, based on planning commission estimates, and also on the quantum of foodgrains that is to be given to the vulnerable section. This quantum has been fixed in the draft at 25kg per month, against an earlier Supreme Court directive of 35kg. And on both these counts, it is likely to attract the opposition of the states. While the states have already distributed more than 10 crore BPL cards, the Centre’s estimate of BPL families is way smaller, at 6.52 crore. Even today, the Centre distributes foodgrains under the PDS in proportion to the figure the Planning Commission generates and not what states decide by survey along with the rural development ministry.
In an earlier round of discussion with the Union food ministry, many states had taken serious objection to the Centre imposing an artificial cut-off and leaving a hefty bill to the states to bear if they decide to pass on the benefits to all the poor. But the food ministry appears to have stuck to its guns and decided not to let the control out of its hands as it would help keep the fiscal burden in check. The government also wants to maintain some flexibility on the price of subsidized foodgrain. While the Congress had said in its manifesto that the ration would be available at Rs 3/kg, the ministry is inclined not to mention an exact price so as give it the option of providing subsidized foodgrains at a higher price.
The Bill is also at odds with the Supreme Court’s directive to the government to create and widen the Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY), which was meant to provide subsidized food to the destitute, primitive tribes, disabled and old and increase the quota for families under the existing PDS scheme to 35kg of foodgrains per month. The Bill, however, wants to wind up the AAY scheme and keep its guarantee to 25kg.
As for the discrepancy between the Centre’s and the states’ estimate of the poor, the food ministry wants the states to bear the cost of providing food security to numbers beyond the central estimate — something that’s unlikely to pass muster with the states.
The ministry has also decided that when it comes to guaranteeing food security through various schemes, including PDS, the buck will stop with the state government. The Centre would be responsible only for procuring foodgrains, importing and maintaining stocks and providing financial compensation if it is not able to secure the supplies to states.
The bill, unlike what the Congress president had suggested in her note, limits itself to distribution of wheat and rice and does not take a wider view of nutritional security. In fact, the ministry has decided to define food security in a manner that would exclude any judiciable right to nutrition. Critics observe that the government is keen to limit its legal guarantee to merely distribution of foodgrains as it would reduce the legal entanglements over cases of chronic starvation.
The empowered group of ministers (eGOM) has also decided, unlike what the Congress president had suggested in her note, that the regular administrative officials at different levels in a district will also take over the role of appellate authorities. Sonia Gandhi had suggested that a distinct appellate system of food commissioners be appointed at state levels with powers to appoint advisors at district level as well as carry out investigations into infringement of the act.
Unlike the detailed legislation the Congress president had suggested, in order to avoid the bill getting stuck with controversies right at the beginning, the food ministry is preparing a rather bare draft, with only essential provisions. Contentious details that could slow down the UPAII’s flagship scheme will be spelt out only through schedules, rules and government notifications from time to time and not be put up for debate when the bill is shared by the food ministry for public comments.

RSS Veteran Nanaji Deshmukh Dead

RSS Veteran Nanaji Deshmukh Dead

Sangh Parivar veteran and former Rajya Sabha member Nanaji Deshmukh passed away here today at the age of 94.

He breathed his last at the premises of the country's first rural university he had established in this temple town bordering Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, his close associate Sharda Prasad Dwivedi said.

Deshmukh was unwell for some time due to age-related ailments and had refused to be taken to Delhi for treatment.

A Padma Vibhushan awardee, he had donated his body for medical research.

Born in Kadoli in Maharashtra's Parbhani district on October 11, 1916, Deskmukh had founded Deendayal Research Institute here and was credited for exemplary work in the field of education, health and rural self-reliance.

He was also instrumental in carrying out social restructuring programme in over 500 villages of both the states.

Deshmukh had established the Chitarkoot Gramodya Vishwavidyalaya in Chitrakoot -- the country's first rural university -- and was its Chancellor.

Deshmukh was a key architect of Janata Party government that had broken the uninterrupted Congress-rule at the Centre in 1977.

A man of the organisation, Nanaji- as he was affectionately called by his friends and admirers - was a fighter who ended political untouchability of Bharatiya Jan Sangh, the erstwhile avatar of BJP, by giving total support to Jai Prakash Narayan's call for "Total Revolution" in 1974.

The subsequent developments, including the Emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi, led to the formation of the Janata Party which stormed to power by sweeping off the Congress and Nanaji had played a prominent role in those dramatic moments.

Nanaji's organising skills during the JP Movement and the Emergency brought him a ministership offer at the Centre in the Morarji Desai government but he declined. Nanaji had entered the Lok Sabha from Balrampur constituency in Uttar Pradesh in the election which saw Congress being wiped out of the state.

He quietly told those concerned that his own inclination- and the way he saw his utility to the party- was in organisational work.

Earlier, in 1974 during the Bihar Sangarsh Movement, the selfless bachelor had saved JP from a police lathi-charge in Patna.

In fact, at that time Nanaji left the swearing-in ceremony to Jagjivan Ram in an effort to persuade him how necessary his presence in the government was to ensure the stability of the new dispensation.

He was General Secretary of the Janata Party, along with socialist leader Madhu Limaye, but the new experiment was short-lived due to internal bickering and the controversy over dual membership.

Nanaji left politics soon after he turned 60 though he was at the pinnacle of his career. He turned to social work to which he devoted himself till the end.

Senior BJP leader V K Malhotra deeply condoled the death of Nanaji Deshmukh.

"He was a great visionary who will always be remembered for his devotion towards social causes," Malhotra said.

In a condolence message, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati said, during his long public life, Deshmukh served the people and played an important role to make weaker sections of the society self-reliant.

He would be remembered for his contribution towards the development of villages, she said.

UPA Budget 2010-11-VJAS urged Finance Minister to give special Economic Package to Dying Vidarbha

UPA Budget 2010-11-VJAS urged Finance Minister to give special Economic Package to Dying Vidarbha

VJAS urged Finance Minister to give special Economic Package to Dying Vidarbha

NAGPUR: -23th feb.2010

Maharashtra Govt. has declared more than 140000 villages of vidarbha as drought hit after last Anewari (crop yield estimate) given administration has been shown around 45% that’s complete loss cotton crop in the region .as per administration reports these villages has facing the problem of water ,fodder ,food and employment but till date any single district administration has not started any relief work resulting migration of thousands farmers for the want of work ,ground condition is worst than June-2006 and now it’s time for Indian Finance Minister to provide special economic package of Rs.30.000 crore in oder to save more than 3 million cotton farmers visit the vidarbha in oder to take review of his relief package

Vidarbha Jan andolan Samiti (VJAS) has drawn the attention of Indian Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee toward pathetic condition of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra which is known as farm suicide capital of India.It's agrarian crisis but massive backwardness in the infrastructure developments,lack of industrialisation coupled with regular power cut-load shedding ,tribal starvation death ,malnutrition and complete failure of NREGA and NRHM in vidarbha has made this region as colony of salves of western Maharashtra and mumbai .Massive corruption and hostile administration has made ground condition too critical to define ,Vidarbha is the completely ignored region in Maharashtra that has resulted this economic crisis ,needs to be addressed with special economic package by the central budgetary sanctions ,urged by VJAS in letter to FM before the budget.

VJAS president Kishore Tiwari has recalled the visit of Indian prime minister Dr.Manmohan singh to vidarbha and announcement of Rs.3750 crore farmers relief package which has terned to be hoax followed by loan waivers series given by union and state Govt. as it failed to raise Agriculture Growth rate in the region moreover there is no respite to economic hardships of 3 million distressed farmers of vidarbha.Maharashtra attitude toward the vidarbha is so negative that state failed address the basic issues of food security and health care of distressed and dying farmers though there are numbers highcourt orders ,human rights commissions and special panels recommendations hence we need union Govt. intervention by way budgetary special economic package,Tiwari added.

Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee souled look at the problems of dry-land farmers of where farmers have to face vagaries of the nature as well as the market forces. Neglect of the dry-land farmers has led to cultivators’ growing dependence on cash crops and giving up food crops. special incentive food crop promotion is long pending demand of vidarbha region.VJAS also urged the FM to look an urgent need for setting up a agricultural price stabilisation fund. In the last five years, prices of farm produce have been volatile. For instance, soyabean prices have swung from Rs 1200 to Rs 4000 a quintal and pluses price Rs 24000 to Rs 74000 a quintal. Due to this a farmer seldom makes money. It is the middleman who gets the big cut while the consumers have to face the brunt of price rise. A stabilisation fund could be the answer to this problem,Tiwari said.

VJAS demands that the government should pump more funds into rural system restoration, NREG and National Rural Health Mission and tighten up the monitoring delivery system to control corruption.National review of NREG and NRHM is must,” demands Tiwari.

Maharashtra farmers hails “No” to Bt.brinjal : Urged Indian Govt. to Ban killer Bt.cotton seed

Maharashtra farmers hails “No” to Bt.brinjal : Urged Indian Govt. to Ban killer Bt.cotton seed

Nagpur -10thfeb.2010

Maharashtra cotton farmers today hails the decision of The Minister for Environment and Forests Jairam Ramesh on the recommendation of the Genetically Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC), a statutory authority set up under the Environment Protection Act of 1986 that Bt.Brinjal should be commercialized to put the on hold for next two years until independent studies established its safety as “a wise and appropriate decision, farmers' pressure group Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti(VJAS) President Kishore Tiwari informed in the press note today.

Earlier in June 2005 bt.cotton was allowed for commercial production resulting of more than 10,000 farm suicides of cotton farmers , it was the decision taken in hurry and without looking at the problems of the public health and environment safety and procedure adopted that time by GEAC was not a credible, effective and transparent system .

As per the observation of Minister for Environment and Forests Jairam Ramesh ,the role of a foreign gene, cry1Ac, derived from a soil bacterium, bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has open door of the public discussion where the oil extracted from bt.cotton seed is safe for human safety or it’s residue in the oil is causing serious health problems to innocent public as while holding the commercial trials of bt.brinjal on hold ministry of environment has given serious consideration to the enviromentalsit say that the gene synthesises a protein toxic to the fruit and shoot borer (FSB), a destructive insect pest. Its incorporation into brinjal is said to confer the crop `built-in' resistance to FSB, reducing reliance on spraying pesticides same claim was made for Bt. cotton but now it’s official that basic claims of Mahyco’s monsantro bt.cotton failed as it has increased the use of pesticide in vidarbha regions moreover the net yields has be drop down even the cultivating are has been al most double in last three years, hence it’s evolution is must in the context of recent development, tiwari added.

“The issue of public health and environment is also vild for bt.cotton seed as here American MNC Monsanto is using same a foreign gene, cry1Ac, derived from a soil bacterium, bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and now on the same ground gene, cry1Ac, derived from a soil bacterium, bacillus thuringiensis has been questioned hence we demand it’s commercial use on hold for bt.cotton too until the final decision is taken." said Tiwari

"Massive failure of cotton crop in 34 lakh hectares in cotton growing region of maharashtra had received very sharp reaction from farmers of vidarbha and marathawada region ,urging the union Govt. review their decision of giving commercial trials to American cotton seed giant Monsanto and to impose the complete ban of killer Bt. cotton seed. They also demand that the government should arrange to seek compensation to the tune of Rs 4,000 crore from Bt cotton seed manufacturers and insecticide, pesticide makers for the losses suffered by farmers,. farmers' pressure group Vidarbha Jan andolan Samiti(VJAS) President Kishore Tiwari added.

"In the state government-sponsored campaign, over 24 lakh farmers took to genetically modified seeds in 34 lakh hectares. The campaign was led by its own seed company Mahyco which is among those that have obtained license from a multinational company for its Bt cotton seeds. The gullible farmers fell prey to the advertisement blitz by the seed companies which claimed that Bt seeds would give bumper crops even in rain fed areas like Vidarbha where irrigation facilities are abysmally low,''president Kishore Tiwari alleged .

"While the agriculture department advisory clearly states that Bt seeds cultivation could be risky in rain fed areas, the government did little to discourage farmers who gave up food crops like jowar and maize and shifted to Bt cotton growing as a cash crop and this has collapsed the economy of the region and is main reason of despair and distress leading thousands of cotton farmers suicides , said Tiwari.

जीएम फसलों का जिन्न-देविंदर शर्मा

जीएम फसलों का जिन्न

कई साल पहले पीएन हक्सर ने एक साक्षात्कार में मुझसे कहा था कि बांधों में गाद जमने के जो भी अनुमान वैज्ञानिकों ने लगाए थे वे गलत साबित हुए। उन्होंने केंद्रीय जल आयोग की एक रिपोर्ट दिखाई जिसमें बताया गया था कि बांधों में जमने वाली गाद शुरू में लगाए गए अनुमान से औसतन पांच सौ गुना अधिक है। इसीलिए बांधों का जीवनकाल अनुमान से काफी कम है और सिंचाई व्यवस्था के सभी अनुमान भी ध्वस्त हो गए हैं। कृषि वैज्ञानिक भी समय-समय पर उपज का पूर्वानुमान लगाते हैं, जो अकसर लक्ष्य तक नहीं पहुंच पाते। उपज के अलावा पैदावार और उत्पादकता के पूर्वानुमान भी सही साबित नहीं हो रहे हैं। हाल ही में अधिकांश अध्ययनों में जीएम फसलों के पराग कणों के हवा में उड़ने और अन्य प्रजातियों के साथ इनके क्रास परागण के संबंध में किए गए सभी अनुमान गलत साबित हुए हैं। आनुवांशिकीय संवर्धित फसलें जैसे बीटी काटन में मिट्टी से एक बैक्टीरिया को बीज में प्रत्यारोपित किया जाता है। यह जीन काटन के पौधे को विषैला बना देती है। जब कीट इस पौधे को खाते हैं तो वे मर जाते हैं। इस जीन का वाहक पराग हवा में उड़कर या फिर मधुमक्खी जैसे पतंगों द्वारा पड़ोस में काटन की अन्य सामान्य प्रजातियों में पहुंचकर क्रास परागण कर देता है। अन्य प्रजातियों के संपर्क विकार का महत्व बीटी बैगन के लंबित व्यावसायिक अनुमति के संदर्भ में बढ़ जाता है। आमतौर पर बैगन क्रास परागण फसल है। क्रास परागण का अंश 5 से 48 प्रतिशत तक रहता है। जीएम पौधों का परागन सामान्य प्रजातियों से होने से ऐसी खरपतवार फैल सकती है, जो रासायनिक खरपतवार नासक से भी नियंत्रित नहीं होगी। इन्हें सुपर खरपतवार कहा जाता है।

परंपरागत रूप से किसान खरपतवारों के दैत्य से संघर्ष कर रहे हैं, किंतु नई उभरती सुपर खरपतवार इतना बड़ा खतरा है, जिसके बारे में कल्पना भी नहीं की जा सकती। इन्हें किसी भी रासायनिक कीटनाशक से नियंत्रित नहीं किया जा सकता। उदाहरण के लिए, गेहूं में किसानों को मांदुसी खरपतवार मिली, किंतु खरपतवार नाशक का छिड़काव कर इन पर अंकुश लगाया जा सकता है। यद्यपि ये खरपतवार नाशक खासे महंगे हैं और किसानों की लागत बढ़ा देते हैं, किंतु फिर भी किसानों के पास मांदुसी को नष्ट करने का उपाय तो है ही। कल्पना करें अगर गेहूं के खेत में ऐसी खरपतवार आ जाए जिसे किसी भी रसायन से नष्ट न किया जा सके। ऐसी खरपतवार खेतों को बंजर बना देगी। अमेरिका के बहुत से क्षेत्रों में ठीक यही हो रहा है। इसके प्रति भारत के किसानों को चिंतित रहने की आवश्यकता है। वैज्ञानिक आपको बताएंगे कि जीएम फसलों से कोई सम्मिश्रण व विकार नहीं होता, लेकिन यह सच नहीं है। दक्षिण अमेरिका के जार्जिया प्रांत में एक लाख से अधिक एकड़ जमीन पिगवीड नामक एक नई खतरनाक खरपतवार से बंजर हो गई है। यह खरपतवार अन्य प्रांतों, जैसे साउथ केरोलिना, नार्थ केरोलिना, अरकनसास, केंटुकी और मिसूरी में भी फैल चुकी है। इससे इतना विनाश हुआ कि जार्जिया की मेकन काउंटी में दस हजार एकड़ से अधिक भूमि पर किसानों ने खेती करना बंद कर दिया। दूसरे शब्दों में जार्जिया प्रांत तेजी से बंजर प्रदेश में बदलता जा रहा है। यूनिवर्सिटी आफ जार्जिया के स्टेनली कल्पेपर का कहना है कि पिछले साल हमने अपने बुरी तरह प्रभावित खेतों में से 45 फीसदी खर-पतवार खुद अपने हाथों से हटाई है। इस सुपर खरपतवार ने खतों पर तब कब्जा किया जब किसानों ने मोंसेंटो कंपनी की जीएम सोयाबीन और जीएम काटन फसल उगाई। भारत में जीएम सम्मिश्रण का खतरा काफी गंभीर है क्योंकि यहां खेतों का आकार बहुत छोटा है और खेत एकदूसरे से मिले हुए हैं।

भारत में भी वैज्ञानिक सुपर खरपतवार के हमले की आशंका से इनकार कर रहे हैं। विडंबना यह है कि अमेरिका का कृषि विभाग भी बड़े पैमाने पर संकर विकार से इनकार कर रहा है। अब तक 28 देशों में सुपर खरपतवार फैल चुकी है, जहां जीएम फसलों की खेती होती है। इनके प्रभाव में आकर 30 से अधिक ऐसी खरपतवार जिन्हें पहले काबू करना संभव था, अब अनियंत्रित सुपर खरपतवारों की श्रेणी में शामिल हो चुकी हैं। यहां तक कि अमेरिका में अदालत ने बहुराष्ट्रीय कंपनी बायर क्राप साइंसेज को मिसूरी के दो किसानों को 20 लाख डालर का जुर्माना अदा करने का आदेश दिया, जिनकी धान की फसल प्रायोगिक जीएम फसलों की चपेट में आकर बर्बाद हो गई थी। यद्यपि मुख्य रूप से धान स्वत: परागण होने वाली फसल है, यानी इसका परागण पांच प्रतिशत से भी कम होता है, फिर भी अमेरिका की अदालतों में बहुराष्ट्रीय कंपनियों के खिलाफ क्रास परागण के एक हजार से अधिक मामले लंबित पड़े हैं। वहां जीएम फसलों का सामान्य फसलों पर पड़ने वाले प्रभाव के कारण करीब छह हजार करोड़ रुपए का नुकसान हो चुका है। इस संबंध में बायर क्राप साइंसेज ने स्वीकार किया है कि जीएम फसलों का सामान्य फसल में परागण रोकने के उसके सारे प्रयास विफल हो गए हैं। दुर्भाग्य से भारत में जीएम फसलों के कारण सामान्य फसल प्रभावित होने पर कंपनियों के खिलाफ जुर्माने की कोई व्यवस्था नहीं है।

गुजरात, महाराष्ट्र और उत्तार प्रदेश में बीटी बैगन की अवैध खेती जोरो पर हो रही है। पर्यावरण और वन मंत्रालय के साथ-साथ कृषि मंत्रालय ने भी इस ओर से आंखें मूंद रखी है। ये जीएम फसलें मानव स्वास्थ्य, कृषि और पर्यावरण के लिए गंभीर खतरा हैं। किसानों को अपने हितों की सुरक्षा के उपाय करने होंगे। साथ ही सरकार को भी तत्परता से कदम उठाने होंगे और अवैध रूप से जीएम फसलों की खेती करने तथा इससे सामान्य प्रजातियों के प्रभावित होने पर जिम्मेदार कंपनियों के खिलाफ आर्थिक जुर्माना लगाना होगा।

माननीय श्री किशोर तिवारी


सादर नमस्कार ।

हम महात्मा गांधीजी की पुस्तिका ‘हिंद स्वराज्य’ का शताब्दी वर्ष मना रहे हैं । गांधीजी का प्रियतम विषय था-‘ग्राम स्वराज्य’। स्वतन्त्रता के 60 वर्ष बाद भी हम ग्राम स्वराज्य के विषय में विशेष प्रगति नहीं कर पाये हैं। आर्थिक सुधारों के बाद तो गांवों के उजडने की गति और भी बढी है। संविधान संशोधन करके देश में ‘पंचायती राज’ की स्थापना हुयी। ग्राम पंचायतों को कुछ विकास कार्यों के अधिकार भी दिये गये परंतु आर्थिक संसाधन तो उपलब्ध कराये ही नहीं। अतः दिये गये अधिकार भी कागजों में ही रह गये। इस कारण केन्द्र और राज्य की राजधानियों में बनी सरकारी योजनाoओं को लागू करने के सीमित तथा दिखावटी दायित्वों तक ग्राम पंचायतें सिकुड कर रह गयीं हैं।

ग्राम पंचायतों को इस दयनीय अवस्था से बाहर निकलने, विकास और विकास के लाभों को गांवों तक पहुंचाने, देश में विकेन्द्रित और संतुलित विकास करने, तथा महत्मा गांधीजी के ‘ग्राम स्वराज्य’ को सार्थक करने के लिये राष्ट्रीय स्वाभिमान आंदोलन ने सरकार के सामने मांग रखी है- केन्द्रीय बजट की 7% राशि सीधे ग्राम पंचायतों को मिले। मांग के समर्थन में देशव्यापी अभियान प्रारंभ करने का निर्णय किया है। इस अभियान के प्रथम चरण के रूप में 8 फरवरी 2010 को सुबह 10 बजे से जंतर-मंतर, दिल्ली में धरना आयोजित किया है। साथ ही देश में 60 से अधिक जिलों मे धरना करने की अपील कार्यकर्ताओं से की है।

आप देश के प्रबुध्द जन हैं तथा अनेकों जनांदोलनों का आपने नेतृत्व किया है। आपका सहभाग इस आंदोलन की सफलता के लिये महत्त्वपूर्ण है। अतः आपसे निवेदन है कि आप इस आंदोलन को सहयोग और आशीर्वाद प्रदान करें। यदि आप आप फरवरी 8, 2010 को जंतर-मंतर, दिल्ली में आयोजित धरना में भाग लेंगे तो राष्ट्रीय स्वाभिमान आंदोलन आपका आभारी रहेगा।
