LESSON 258

The Amitabha Buddha Sutra

(The
SUKHAVATI-VYUDHA VERSION - (The Short Version)


THUS I have heard,
at one time the Buddha dwelt at Sravasti in the Jeta grove in the garden of the
Benefactor Of Orphans and the Solitary, together with a gathering of great
Bhikshus, 1250 in all, all great Arhats whom the assembly knew and recognised:
Elders Sariputra, Mahamaudgalyayana,
Mahakasyapa, Mahakatyayana, Mahakautsthila, Revata, Suddhipanthaka, Nanada,
Ananada, Rahula, Gavampati, Pindola-bharadvaja. Kalodayin,Mahakaphina,
Vakkula,. Aniruddha and others such as these, all great disciples; together
with all the Bodhisattvas, Mahasattvas: Dharma Prince
Manjushri, Ajita Bodhisattva, Gandhastin, Bodhisattva, Nityodyutka Bodhisattva
and others such as these, all great Bodhisattvas ; together with Sakra, chief
among gods, and the numberless great multitudes from the heavens.

At the time Buddha
told the Elder Sariputra, “Passing from hear though hundreds of thousands
of millions o Buddhalands to the West, there is a world called Ultimate Bliss.
In this land a Buddha called Amitabha right now teaches the Dharma. Sariputra,
for the what reason is this land called Ultimate Bliss ? All living beings of
this country endure none of the sufferings, but enjoy every
bliss. Therefore, it is called ‘Ultimate Bliss’.

Moreover, Sariputra
this land of Ultimate Bliss is everywhere surrounded by seven tiers of
railings, seven layers of netting and seven rows of trees, all formed from the
four treasures and for this reason named ‘Ultimate Bliss’.

Moreover,
Sariputra, the Land Of Ultimate Bliss has pools of seven jewels, filled with
the eight waters of merit and virtue. The bottom of each pool is pure, spread
over with golden sand. On the four sides are stairs of gold, silver, lapis
lazuli, and crystal, mother-of-pearl, red pearls, and carnelian.

In the pools are
lotuses as large as carriage wheels; green coloured of green light, yellow
coloured of yellow light, red coloured of red light; white coloured of white
light, subtly, wonderfully, fragrant and pure.

Sariputra the
realisation of the Land Of Ultimate Bliss is thus meritoriously adorned.

Moreover,
Sariputra, in that Buddhaland there is always heavenly music, and the ground is
yellow gold. In the six periods of the day and night a heavenly rain of
mandarva flowers falls, and throughout the clear morning each living being of
this Land, with sacks full of the myriads of wonderful flowers, makes offerings
to the hundreds of thousands of millions of Buddhas of the other directions. At
mealtime they return to their own country and having eaten they stroll around.

Sariputra, the
realisation of the Land of Ultimate Bliss is meritoriously adorned.

Moreover Sariputra,
in this country there are always rare and wonderful vari-coloured birds; white
cranes; peacocks; parrots and egrets kalvinkas and two-headed birds In the six
periods of the day and night the flocks of birds sing forth harmonious and elegant
sounds. Their clear and joyful sounds
proclaim the five roots, the five powers, the seven Boddhishares, and dharmas
such as these. When living beings of this land hear these sounds. they are
altogether mindful of the Dharma and mindful of the Sangha.

Sariputra, do not
say that these birds are born as retribution for their karmic offences. For
what reason ? In this Buddhaland there are no three evil ways of rebirth
Sariputra. in this Buddhaland not even of the three evil ways exist, how much
the less their actuality ! Desiring that the Dharma sound be widely
proclaimed, Amitabha Buddha by transformation made this multitude of birds.

Sariputra, in that
Buddhaland, when the soft wind blows, the rows of jewelled trees and jewelled
nets give forth subtle and wonderful sounds, like one hundred thousand kinds of
music played at the same time. All those who hear this sound naturally bring in
their hearts mindfulness of the Buddha,
mindfulness of the Dharma and mindfulness of the Sangha.

Sariputra, the
realisation of the Land of Ultimate Bliss is meritoriously adorned.

Sariputra, what do
you think? Why is the Buddha called Amitabha ? Sariputra, the brilliance of
that Buddha’s light is measureless, illumining the lands of the ten directions
everywhere without obstructions, for this reason he is called Amitabha.

Moreover Sariputra,
the life of that Buddha and that of his people extends of measureless limitless
asankhyeya kalpas; for this reason he is called Amityatus.And Sariputra, since
Amitabha realised Buddhahhod, ten kalpas have passed.

Moreover Sariputra,
that Buddha has measureless, limitless “sound-hearer” disciples, all
Arhats, their number incalculable; thus also is the assembly of Bodhisattvas.

Sariputra, the
realisation of the Land of Ultimate Bliss is meritoriously adorned.

Moreover Sariputra,
those living beings born in the Land Of Ultimate Bliss are all avivartika.
Among them are many who in this very life will dwell in Buddhhood. Their number
is extremely many; it is incalculable and only in measureless, limitless
asankheya kalpas could it be spoken.

Sariputra, those
living beings who hear should vow, ‘I wish to be born in that country’. And why
? Those who thus attain are all attain are all superior and good people, all
coming together in one place. Sariputra, one cannot have few good roots,
blessings, virtues and casual connections to attain birth in that Land.

Sariputra, if there
is a good man or good woman who hears spoken ‘Amitabha Buddha’ and holds the
name whether for one day, two days, three, four, five days, six days as long as
seven days with one heart unconfused, when this person approaches the end of
life, before him will appear Amitabha
Buddha and all the assembly of Holy Ones. When the end comes, his heart is
without inversion; in Amitabha Buddha’s Land Of Ultimate Bliss he will attain
rebirth. Sariputra. because I see this benefit. I speak these words; If living
beings hear this spoken they should make the vow ‘I will be reborn in that
land.

Sariputra, as I now
praise the inconceivable benefit from the merit and virtue of Amitabha Buddha,
thus in the East are also Aksobhya Buddha, Sumeru Appearance Buddha, Great
Sumeru Buddha, Summeru Light Buddha, Wonderful Sound Buddha, all Buddhas such
as these, numberless as Ganges’ sands. In his own country each brings forth the

beings should believe, praise, and hold in reverence the inconceivable merit
and virtue of this Sutra Of The Mindful One Of Whom All The Buddhas Are

Shoulders Buddha, Measureless Vigour Buddha, all Buddhas such as these,

to it an hears the names of all these Buddhas, this good man or woman will be
the Mindful One of whom all Buddhas are protective, and will irreversibly
attain to annuttara-samyak-sambodhi. Therefore, Sariputra, all of you should
believe and accept my words, and those which all Buddhas speak.

Sariputra, just as
I am now one who praises the merit and virtue of all Buddhas, all those Buddhas
equally praise, my inconceivable merit and virtue saying these words ‘Sakyamuni
Buddha can be complete extremely rare and difficult deeds. In the Saha Land, in
the evil time of the five turbidities, in the midst of the kalpa turbidity, the
view turbidity, the affliction tupidity and the life turbidity, he can attain annutara-samyak-sambodhi
and for the sake of living beings, speak this Dharma which in the whole world
is hard to believe.’

Sariputra, You
should know, that I, in the evil time of the five turbidities, practice these
difficult deeds, attain annutara-samyak-sambodhi and for all the world speak
this dharma, difficult to believe, extremely difficult!’

After the Buddha
spoke this Sutra, Sariputra and all the Bhikshus, all the gods, men and asuras
and others from all the worlds hearing what the Buddha had said, joyously
welcomed, faithfully accepted, bowed and withdrew.

C.M. inaugurates/lays foundation of public welfare
and development schemes costing Rs. 2000 crore on completion of four years of
her government

 

Achievements of my Government very encouraging and
excellent in the spheres of law and order, crime control, development and
matters related with public interests
—Hon’ble Chief Minister ji

 

State Government took several important and
historical decisions in the interests of poor, neglected and exploited sections
of society

 

BJP, Congress and other opposition parties trying
to mislead people

 

Lucknow: 13 May 2011

The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Ms.
Mayawati ji, on the

occasion of the completion of four years of her
government today,

inaugurated/laid foundation of various public
welfare and development

schemes amounting to Rs. 2000 crore. She said that
despite the non-cooperative attitude and step motherly treatment handed out by
the

Central Government, her government’s achievements
were excellent in the

field of law and order, development and matters
related with people’s

interests. She said that the State Government
achieved all these factors

through its own limited resources. She said that
these achievements were

encouraging and excellent. She said that the
previous governments could

not complete the tasks related with development
and public interest in the

last 40 years, but her government completed them
in a span of only four

years on the basis of missionary thinking.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji was addressing a
function organised at

the Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar Auditorium, Ashiyana here
today to mark the

completion of four years of her government. She
paid floral tributes on the

statue of Baba Saheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar after
her arrival. She also

met with all the responsible office bearers,
prominent persons and party

workers gathered at there. The C.M. also
inaugurated/laid foundation of

various schemes. These were mainly related with
Energy Department,

Drinking Water and Sewerage, Bridge Corporation
and PWD. She also

unveiled statue of former Union Minister and
Governor late Dr. Rajendra

Kumari Bajpai. Mr. Ashok Bajpai and Mrs. Ranjana
Bajpai were also present

on the occasion.Speaking on the occasion, the
Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that owing to missionary thinking and efforts, the
jungle-raj, mafia-raj and the

phase of anarchy was ended and rule of law by the
law was established all over the State. Several important and historical
decisions were taken

which had far-reaching positive effects on the
poor, neglected and

exploited sections of the society. During the
previous four years, the State

Government adopted the policy of Sarvajan Hitay
and Sarvajan Sukhay

which yielded encouraging results for establishing
a society based on

equality.

 

Ms. Mayawati ji said that during the regime of the
previous government, an atmosphere of jungle-raj, mafia-raj and anarchy had
been created all over Uttar Pradesh. The process of development had stopped and
corruption was rampant all over the State. She pointed out that after coming to
power she put the State back on the track of development.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the BJP
and other opposition parties had been levelling false allegations of corruption
against the State Government, which was totally misleading and baseless. She
said that the

BJP had published a book which was based on
useless, false and fake facts.

She said that the book had nothing based on facts,
which could be taken

seriously by the State Government, the matter
could be investigated by it

and the culprit could be punished. She pointed out
that the present

government had detected the police recruitment
scam, Noida land scam

and food grain scam which occurred during the
regime of previous

government and after conducting investigation,
those found guilty had

been punished.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the State
Government had

demanded a special package of Rs. 80,000 crore
from the Central

Government to remove backwardness of the State
from time to time. But,

the Union Government did not take any positive
decision in this regard.

She said that the Central Government even did not
provide rightful money

to be given to Uttar Pradesh on time. She said
that the Central Government did not provide an amount in the excess of Rs.
21,385 crore to the State Government to be given under various Central Schemes
over the last four years.

 

Referring to the Prime Minister’s public meeting
held in Banda on 30
th

April 2011, Ms. Mayawati ji said that the views
expressed by the Hon’ble

Prime Minister ji regarding the development of
Bundelkhand, were nothing

more than a political farce. She said that the
backwardness of Bundelkhand

was not sudden. Instead, it lagged behind over a
period of time since

independence. She said that considering this, the
State Government

requested the Central Government to provide a
package of Rs. 80,000

crore on 17th July 2007. She pointed out that it included various proposals

for all round development of Bundelkhand costing
Rs. 11,000 crore

approximately. Likewise, to remove backwardness of
Poorvanchal, a

package of Rs. 36,000 crore had been demanded
which was included in the

Rs. 80,000 crore package demanded by the State
from the Centre. The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the State Government
was in favour of small states for rapid development and effective
administration.

 

She said that she had been continuously demanding
reorganisation of U.P.

and creation of Poorvanchal, Bundelkhand and
Western U.P. as separate

States. She said that she had requested the
Central Government to find

out permanent solution for the problem of floods
affecting terai and

eastern areas. These floods were being caused by
the rivers originating

from Nepal. Besides, she had also demanded from
the Centre to set up

another bench of Hon’ble Allahabad High Court in
the western U.P., to

amend the list of BPL families and include 16
castes of OBCs in SC list. She

regretted that these demands were still pending
with the Centre.

 

Ms. Mayawati ji said that the Government was
committed to ensure

State’s development through its own limited
resources and prepared

projects like Ganga Express Way and Upper Ganga
Canal, Jewar

International Airport on the basis of PPP which
did not attract any money

from the Centre. Yet, the Central Government did
not give permission for

these schemes and the same were still pending with
the Centre. She said

that the States were being allocated resources
under the federal system.

She pointed out that earlier the Central Government
was allocating only

30.5 per cent to the States from the Central taxes
and presently it was

allocating only 32 per cent of the same and it
kept 68 per cent with it and

spent this amount on its sweet will on various
schemes. Likewise, the

attitude of the Government of India remained
callous in the allotment of

Central share to the State.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that her
Government had undertaken several steps to improve power sector during the last
four years. She said that if the Central Government did not interfere in it,
then the people of the State would get huge relief by 2014. She said that for
the first time, her Government was spending about Rs. 2176 crore to improve the
basic amenities in the ancient, historical and prominent cities of the State.
She said that her Government had taken an important decision through which the
process of election of mayors, chairpersons of Nagar Palika and Nagar Panchayat
had been amended and their election had been made indirect with an objective to
ensure better understanding between chairpersons and corporators. She said that
this arrangement already existed in several states even today. She said that
all the opposition parties should welcome the steps taken by the BSP Government
in the interest of people, but the opposition parties instead of appreciating
it were indulging in ugly politics.

 

Ms. Mayawati said that her government had done
significant works to

provide employment to youth instead of giving
unemployment allowance.

She said that the state government had recruited
about 1.9 lakh sanitary

workers, 88,000 primary teachers and 5,000 urdu
teachers. Besides,

recruitment process had been started on 2.25 lakh
posts in police

department after sanctioning of these posts. Lakhs
of people got

employment in non-government sectors. Backlog of
SC/ST posts were filled by launching drive and ban on government jobs for
general category was

lifted, she added.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that her
government had started

Uttar Pradesh Mukhyamantri Mahamaya Garib Arthik
Madad Yojna to

provide financial assistance of Rs. 400 per month
to poor people deprived

from the benefits of BPL list and Antyodaya Yojna.
She said that her

government had also made arrangements to plead the
cases of poor BPL

card holders and beneficiaries of Uttar Pradesh
Mukhyamantri Mahamaya

Garib Arthik Madad Yojna in which government is
not the party.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that her
government had honoured

the great heroes of social change. She said that
these great men were

overlooked during earlier governments owing to
their casteist mentality.

Memorials, museums, garden, parks and other spots
had been established

in the memory of saints, gurus and great men,
especially Mahatma Jyotiba

Phule, Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj, Sri Narayana
Guru, Baba Saheb Dr.

Bhimrao Ambedkar and Manyavar Sri Kanshiram Ji.
Expenditure of less

than one percent of the total budget of U.P. had
been done on these works.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that her government
faced strong

challenges on the issues of law & order, crime
control, development and

public welfare. She said that ‘criminalization of
politics’ and ‘politicisation of

criminals’ were protected earlier at every level
and there was complete

jungle raj in the state. Corruption was at the top
and the entire government machinery failed owing to it. It was a difficult and
challenging task to improve the failed system and her government took several
hard decisions on priority basis.

 

Criticising the statement of BJP National
President Mr. Nitin Gadkari

regarding her and BSP on 26 April 2011 in
Varanasi, she said that the

language used by Mr. Gadkari clearly stated that
he did not belong to a

cultured family. She said that many persons of her
party had suggested

BSP leaders that reply should be given to BJP
National President in the

same language. But, BSP leaders replied that their
National President was

born and brought up in a cultured family,
therefore she could not reply in

the language of Gadkari.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that BJP,
Congress and other

opposition parties were trying to mislead the
people of the state. Scams

worth crores of rupees had been exposed recently
which took place in the

regime of Congress led UPA government and Congress
government in

Delhi. She suggested the people of the state and
her party to remain

cautious towards the tactics of these parties and
said that opposition

parties were putting false allegations of
corruption on her party and

government officers. She said that if her
government had ordered inquiry

into the cases during the regimes of opposition
parties, then maximum

Ministers and Officers had been found involved in
the corruption. She said

that if her government had wished to make inquires
regarding the works

being done during the regimes of opposition
parties, then it would have been exposed before the people, but half of energy
of her government remained engaged in it, which was not proper. She said that
instead of doing it, her government had given the opportunity to those officers
and employees for improvement who had been made corrupt during the regimes of
these parties’ governments.

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that her party
welcomed the efforts

of those organizations and institutions which raised
their voice against

corruption in any form. She said that so far as
the question of raising the

voice against corruption by Anna Hajare and his
supporters is concerned,

some people considered that they are playing in
the hands of political

parties. It is clear from the fact that several
scams took place in

Maharastra, the home state of Anna Hajare and
other nearby states but

instead of movement against corruption there, Mr.
Hajare launched

movement in Uttar Pradesh, which makes it clear
that these persons are

playing in the hands of political parties having
anti-SC/ST mentality owing to

which no person of SC/ST community was made member
in the civil society

constituted for drafting Lok Pal Bill. She said
that the same attitude was of

the Central Government and if needed, her party
could organize

demonstrations and public meetings in the entire
country to expose this

dual character. She said that owing to entry of
criminal elements in

politics, corruption spread on a large scale in
the country for which

Congress, BJP and other opposition parties are
responsible.

On this occasion, a film was exhibited based on
the achievements of

four years of the government. The Students of CMS
and Artists of Culture

Department presented programme. The Hon’ble Chief
Minister ji announced

prize money of Rs. 10 and 05 lakhs for the CMS
students and Artists of

Culture Department respectively. She also released
a book based on the

achievements of four years of the state
government.

 

Earlier, the Senior Cabinet Minister Mr.
Nasimuddin Siddiqui,

Chairman of State Advisory Council Mr. Satish
Chandra Mishra, BSP State

President Mr. Swami Prasad Maurya, Social Welfare
Minister Mr. Indrajit

Saroj, Cabinet Secretary Mr. Shashank Shekhar
Singh and Chief Secretary

Mr. Anup Mishra welcomed the Chief Minister. The
Chief Secretary also

welcomed other guests and Additional Cabinet
Secretary Mr. Raveendra

Singh expressed his gratitude towards the guests.
The Commissioner of

Lucknow and Secretary Information Mr. Prashant
Trivedi conducted the

programme.

Cong, BJP trying to do away with SC/ST
reservation: Maya


Madurai : BSP leader and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati has
alleged that both Congress and BJP were trying to do away with
reservation system introduced by B R Ambedkar for the uplilftment of
SCs and STs.

Accusing the two parties of failure to
improve the socio-economic
conditions of SC/STs and other oppressed classes, she claimed BSP was
the only party that followed the footsteps of Ambedkar and fulfilled
his dreams of social transformation in general and SC/ST emancipation
in particular.

Addressing an election meeting in
support of her party candidates in
the April 13 Tamil Nadu Assembly polls, she said her government had
done a lot for economically poor among the upper castes in Uttar
Pradesh besides helping the oppressed classes.

In Uttar Pradesh, there was reservation
for poor people of the upper
caste also. Her party was dependent on not only SC/STs, but poor and
middle class people of all the castes, Mayawati said.


She asked the people of Tamil Nadu to teach a lesson to the Congress,
DMK and AIADMK and make BSP a force in the state.

How Media Distorted Land Scam of RSS Trust?


Though land was allotted on 27.1.06
when as per Supreme Court order Babu Ram Gaur was Chief Minister and had
replaced Uma Bharti earlier than 8.07.2004 but Press reported. The land was
allotted in 2004 to the Kushabhau Thakre Memorial Trust by the then BJP government
of Madhya Pradesh headed by Uma Bharti.

 

Press also didn’t disclose SC comments
34. The allotment of land by the State or its agencies/instrumentalities to a
body/organization/institution which carry the tag of caste, community or
religion is not only contrary to the idea of Secular Democratic Republic but is
also fraught with grave danger of dividing the society on caste or communal
lines.

 

RSS BJP manipulates press or corrupts
the press.

(ii) Although, letter dated 18.6.2004
was addressed to the Principal Secretary, the same was actually handed over to
Shri Babu Lal Gaur, the then Minister, Housing and Environment, Madhya Pradesh.
He forwarded the same to the Principal Secretary for immediate action. The
latter directed that steps be taken for placing the matter before the
reservation committee. Simultaneously, letters were issued to Commissioner-cum-
Director, Town and Country Planning, Bhopal (respondent No.3) and
Collector, Bhopal (respondent No. 4) to send their
respective reports.

 

(iii) Respondent No.3 submitted report
dated 8.7.2004 indicating therein that as per Bhopal Development Plan, land
comprised in Khasra Nos.83 and 85/1 was reserved for residential and plantation
purposes and Khasra No.85/2 was non government land. After going through the
same, the Principal Secretary, Housing opined that land cannot be reserved for
the Memorial Trust. However, Shri Rajendra Shukla, State Minister, Housing and
Environment recorded a note that he had requested the Coordinator of the trust
to send a revised proposal to the Government and directed that the new proposal
be put up before him.

 

(v) While the process initiated for
reservation of land was at a preliminary stage, Shri Kailash Joshi submitted an
application dated 31.7.2004 to the Registrar, Public Trust, Bhopal (for short,
`the Registrar’) under the Madhya Pradesh Public Trusts Act, 1951 (for short
`the 1951 Act’) for registration of a trust in the name of respondent No. 5 by
describing himself and S/Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, Lal Krishna Advani, Balwant P.
Apte and Sanjay Joshi as Trustees. In the application, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu
was shown as the first President of the trust and Shri Kailash Joshi as its
Secretary and Managing Trustee.

 

(xv) For next about seven months, the
matter remained under correspondence between different departments of the State
Government. During the interregnum, Shri Babu Lal Gaur became Chief Minister of
the State. On 24.10.2005, he directed that matter relating to allotment of land
to respondent No.5 be put up in the next meeting of the Cabinet scheduled to be
held on 26.10.2005. On the same day, Secretary, Revenue Department submitted a
detailed note and suggested that keeping in view the limited resources
available with the State Government, land should be auctioned so that the
administration may garner maximum revenue. His suggestion was not accepted by
the Council of Ministers, which decided to allot 20 acres land in the name of
the Memorial Trust at the rate of Rs.40 lakhs per hectare. The decision of the
State Government was communicated to respondent No. 4 vide order dated
27.1.2006.

 

SC cancels BJP govt’s land largesse to
trust

By Gyanant Singh in New Delhi

 

Kushabhau Thakre Trust allotted land
in Bhopal even before it was registered

THEBJP was left red- faced on
Wednesday after the Supreme Court quashed the allotment of 20 acres of land in Bhopal
to a trust named after late party leader Kushabhau Thakre.

 

A bench comprising Justice G. S.
Singhvi and Justice A. K. Ganguly directed the state government to take back
the possession of the land and refund the amount deposited by the trust within
a period of 15 days.

 

Noting that the land was allotted
without issuing any advertisement inviting applications, the court said:
“What needs to be emphasised is that the State and/ or its agencies/
instrumentalities cannot give largesse to any person according to the sweet
will and whims of the political entities and/ or officers of the State.” The
land was allotted in 2004 to the Kushabhau Thakre Memorial Trust by the then
BJP government of Madhya Pradesh headed by Uma Bharti.

 

The trust, which wanted to start an
institute, had applied for a plot even though no advertisement had been issued
by the state government.

 

The court order came on a petition
filed by NGO Akhil Bhartiya Upbhokta Congress, a Bhopal-
based consumer group.

 

It had challenged the government’s
decision on the grounds that the land at Bavadiya Kalan was given in advance
and at a throwaway price to the trust in violation of the laws. The allotment
was allegedly made even before the trust was registered.

 

The NGO approached the Supreme Court
in appeal after the Madhya Pradesh High Court refused to interfere with the
allotment.

 

Allowing the appeal, the Supreme Court
said there cannot be any policy, much less a rational policy, of allotting land
on the basis of applications made by individuals, bodies, organisations or
institutions de hors an invitation or advertisement by the State or its agency/
instrumentality. Justice Singhvi, who wrote the judgment for the bench, said
the state cannot exclude other eligible persons from lodging a competing claim.

 

The court noted that the objective of
the trust was laudable, but the fact remained that “all its trustees are
members of a particular party and the entire exercise for the reservation and
allotment of land and waiver of major portion of the premium was undertaken
because political functionaries of the state wanted to favour respondent No. 5
(the trust) and the officers of the state at different levels were forced to
toe the line of their political masters. BJP leaders L. K. Advani, Venkaiah
Naidu, Kailash Joshi (Bhopal MP), Balwant P. Aptey (Rajya Sabha member from Maharashtra)
and Sanjay Joshi (party general- secretary) are among the members of the trust.

 

The court said no exception can be
taken to the use of discretion by political functionaries and officers of a
state, but such discretion has to be exercised in a judicious manner without
any discrimination against anyone.

 

Parties in Madhya Pradesh reacted to
the SC order on predictable lines. While the BJP was circumspect, the Congress
hailed the directive and turned fire- power against the state government.

 

We will comment on the judgment only
after we get an authorised copy of it,state BJP spokesperson Hitesh Vajpayee
said. Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan adopted a similar line. I will
comment only after going through the copy of the judgment, he said.

 

BJP sources said the party’s strategy
would be to try and neutralise the issue. However, the Congress is unlikely to
allow its rival to put the issue into cold storage. Party MLA Ajay Singh said: For
too long, the ruling party has been giving prime lands at throwaway prices not
only in Bhopal but all over Madhya Pradesh.

MUMBAI,

Alleged urban land scam: BJP defends Raj Purohit

‘No question of his resignation from post or party’

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday backed its Mumbai
president Raj Purohit after his name came up in a land scam and said there was
no question of his resignation from the post or party.

On Tuesday, the Bombay High Court directed the CBI to file FIRs
against Mr. Purohit, a former Minister of State for Urban Development in the
Shiv Sena-BJP government, and other revenue officers.

Welcoming the CBI probe into the scam, BJP State president Eknath
Khadse told journalists that Mr. Purohit, when he was Minister, could not have
passed any orders as alleged by the State.

“No Minister ever signed orders issued by the State government,”
Mr. Khadse clarified. “If Mr. Purohit is guilty, investigate the case and
punish him; but if there is no proof, then he has to be cleared.”

Mr. Purohit’s name figured in a scam in Pune, allegedly in
violation of the Urban Land Ceiling and Regulation Act (ULCRA). It will now be
investigated by the CBI instead of the CID.

A Division Bench of the court issued the order based on a report
submitted by former IAS officer Sudhakar Joshi, who was appointed to probe the
scam by the government in 2009. A copy of the report is with the court.

Mr. Khadse said Mr. Purohit could seek relief from the Supreme
Court since he was not summoned by the Joshi Committee to explain his stand.

He added that the principles of natural justice were denied to
Mr. Purohit and he could approach the Supreme Court.

Mr. Khadse alleged that Mr. Purohit’s name was being dragged into
the case to divert attention from the real culprits, and that the government
was shielding an officer close to the State Home Minister and a former Deputy
Chief Minister.

Mr. Khadse said he and BJP leader Gopinath Munde had raised the
land scam in the legislature in 2007 and 2008, and there was no mention then of
Mr. Purohit.

The High Court, while hearing the public interest litigation
filed by BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari, stated that the land scam was bigger
than the 2G spectrum scandal.

Kanimozhi
VS Nitin Gadkari – The Most Crooked & Corrupt
 
We all condemn corruption of Kanimozhi for Rs. 200 crores transferred in to her
TV channel swiftly but there is not yet a line about Nitin Gadkari corruption since
1999 that is ten times larger than her –
 
- There was NO open bidding for ‘Distillery’ and Sugar Mill projects that was
initially a cooperative but converted in to Private, acquiring 250 acres of
farm land, along side installed 22 MW cogen plant even as there was no Sugar
Cane for his plant, he ran it on Coal not procured from Coal India but from
Smugglers, he also got clearances for 540MW thermal project, acquired two Sugar
Mills and other projects.
 
Gadkari corrupted every institution.
 
Ravinder Singh
April26, 2011
 
First thing Nitin Gadkari did when BJP came to power was to acquire
‘Distillery’ license that would ensure Rs.2 crores per day profits though it
was under the pretensions of helping Sugar Farmers to earn more and setting up
of a Sugar Mill.
 
This case study is crucial as this Purti Sugar Mill was the first major venture
undertaken by Nitin Gadkari – for an ex Minister and close to RSS BJP NDA every
rule was broken to promote him.
 
There was no sugar cane cultivation area in the normal operating range of the
Project Site yet he was allowed to set up a Sugar Factory.
 
Sugar mill required just 25 acres of land but Nitin Gadkari was allowed 250
acres for 22 MW Cogen power project – even Maruti Car factory had 100 acres
land.
 
When we in UP were opposed to 2500 acres for 10,000 MW project in Dadri, he
silently grabbed 250 acres for 22MW cogen plant with eye on 500MW coal based
project.
 
In addition he also managed to get license for ‘Distillery Complex Also’ and
Ethanol project as well with capacity of 45,000 & 120,000 Liters Per Day.
Distillery and Ethanol plants are identical.
 
As I said earlier like a pig he looks left but runs right, though in original
plan he wanted Purti Cooperative Sugar Mill – he turned a Cooperative to private
company.
 
165,000 proof liters per day is 412500 liters per day or 5,50,000 bottles per
day of alcoholic drinks. Even Rs.50 per bottle profit is Rs.2.7 crores per day
income or Rs. 2 crores per day profits.

PURTI CO-OPERATIVE SUGAR MILL LTD.:
 
M/s Purti sugar mill is situated at Khursapar (Bela) village near about 60 KM
from Nagpur at national highway (Nagpur-Chandrapur) in Umred Taluka. This
complex has been started within the leadership of Shri. Nitinji Gadkari,
Chairman, who had laid the foundation stone of this multiproduct complex, which
in the years to come would be the ideal example for whole Indian sugar industry
sector.
 
This multiproduct complex is spread over 250 Acres and consist of the
Following
 
• Sugar complex -capacity 2500 TPD/day (tons per day)
• Distillery complex- capacity Sprit– 45,000 KLPD (kilo liters per day)
Ethanol– 1,20,000 KLPD
• Co-generation complex( capacity 22 MW)
• Bio-disel complex capacity (3000 liters/day)
• Bio-composting unit
 
Sugar Complex
 
The sugar industry began its crushing operation in 2002 with a capacity of 2500
TPD. of cane per day. But eventually operating a sugar factory in an area where
small number of farmers are planting sugar cane which is insufficient to assure
the operation of the sugar factory would not have been commercially viable.
This year the restriction of the command area has been removed by the
government which in turns helps the industry to procure the sugarcane from
outside the command area.
 
In this region water table is very low therefore water scarcity problem is very
high as compare to other sugarcane growing region. This sugar factory has an
enormous importance for the surrounding community.
 
Being located in the rural area, it provides employment opportunity and
increases secondary business in the area. During the harvesting season, the
cane is taken to the mill mostly by tractors (single & doubled trolley),
bullock cart, and trucks. This year, most of the sugar cane came from the
nearby areas like Wardha , Nanded, Selu, which approximately takes 6 to 8 hrs,
while in case of Madhya Pradesh it takes more than 12 to 15 hrs.
 
Harvesting is done by hand. Sugarcane cutting is a hard and dirty job, but
provides employment to people in nearby areas where jobs are scarce. Sugarcane
is cut at about ground level, the top green leaves are chopped off and then the
stalk is bundled. Once a complete bundle has been assembled, it is removed from
the field with the help of labourers and transferred to a larger vehicle for
transport to the mill. The harvested sugar cane should be crushed within 24
hrs. to get a good recovery of sugar. Therefore every sugar mill has provided
transportation and harvesting facility to the farmers on nominal charges, which
ultimately provides secondary employment to the nearby communities.
 
In general, almost all sugar mills depend for their supplies of sugar cane on
large number of independent farmers, producing the crop for profits. If the
yield per hectare is improved, the benefit goes to the growers while if the
cane is rich enough in sugar content; it becomes profitable to the mills.
Therefore cane
growing and milling are essentially a joint enterprise what helps the grower
helps the miller and vice- versa.
 
Sugarcane considered as a alternative crop in this area, most of the farmers go
for the cotton, some of them cultivating orange, which in this area, gives a
good income to the farmers. As this mill has started operating only recently,
the mill at present does not have an agriculture development department but
through traditional channels, they are in touch with the farmers and purchase
sugar cane from nearby areas. The harvesters which are deployed by the mill are
mostly from the area where the sugarcane growing and harvesting is a
traditional
business like western Maharashtra, Maratwada & Andhra Pradesh. They are
largely migrated workers who live nearby to the factory in small tents
(Zopadi).
 
They harvest the crop and then load it on to the vehicle in presence of the
crop owner (Farmer). Each group of harvester consists of 8-10 members. The
transporting agent gets the slip signed by the farmer and goes to the weighing
and crushing center. Weighing is located near to the crushing center. Once the
weighing has being carried out, mill officials will note down the entry of the
crop weight, name of crop owner and the vehicle number, for further procedure.
The payment of the crop will directly be deposited in the account of each
farmer or can be paid directly. The sugarcane vehicles is then unloaded at the
crushing centre with the help of lifters, the lifted bundle of sugarcane is
then conveyed
to the cane leveler where it is cut and chipped. The cut cane blanket is then
fed to tandem of mill, wherein it is crushed and the juice is extracted. The
manager needs to process the cane as soon as possible if sucrose losses are to
be avoided. Typically, cane is processed within 24 hours after harvesting.
Following
are the steps, which are involved in the manufacturing of sugar.
 
Extraction of juice: The extraction is actually conducted as a counter-current
process using fresh hot water being pumped at one end in the opposite direction
to the cane. The more the water is used, the more is the sugar extracted but
the more dilute the mixed juice, hence more energy will be required to
evaporate the juice. In many factories, the cane is crushed in a series of large
roller mills similar to a mangle [wringer] and the sweet juice extracted.
Generally juice looks pretty dirty, because of contamination with soil
particles from the fields, small
fibers and the green extracts from the plant. There are several important aspects
to extraction which involve the energy balance of the mill, the efficiency of
extraction and therefore ultimately the profitability of operations. The
fibrous cane material after the extraction of juice is called the bagasse
 
Clarification: -The extracted juices are then heated to 60-65o c in juice
heater and passed to reaction tank where the liming and sulphitation takes
place. This limed and sulphited juice is pumped back to a ‘clarifier’ after
heating to 100o c. which remains there for about 3 hr. During this stage in the
clarifier, the heavy insoluble impurities, mostly soil and mud are precipitates
which are then pumped to a vacuum filter, which remove the liquid portion from
the mud, while the solid muddy portion is taken out of the mill building. This
is used as manure or can serve as raw material for the extraction of crude wax.
 
Boiling: -The raw juice is now clarified and is called the clarified juice. It
is then passed through a set of evaporator which boils the excess water under
vacuum
concentrating it gradually, as it passes from one evaporator to another.
Finally concentrated juice called the sugar syrup is sent to the pan floor
wherein the final
crystallization takes place, under vacuum. The evaporation is carried out under
vacuum.
 
Crystallization: - A viscous solid mass consisting of sugar crystals and mother
liquor is dropped in the crystallizer and it then passes through the pug mills
to centrifugal machines. Due to very high gravity factor, the viscous mother
liquor passes through the opening in the liner and the sugar is retained on the
screen and the sugar is then dropped in hopper.
 
Grading & Packaging:-
 
The sugar is then passed on to a unit called grader, which grades the sugar in
different grades and in different sizes as per the Indian sugar standards. At
present, Purti is producing S-30 which is around Rs. 30– 100 less than M-30
grade of sugar. The sugar is bagged in the pre-stamped gunny bags, weighed; the
grades and number marked on the bags and these bags are stored in godowns and
are finally sold. The transportation of sugar from mill to market is mostly
carried out by road. Though the Indian sugar industry is more concentrated in
rural part of India but the area is well connected with most of the
metropolitan cities in India.
 
Distillery Complex
 
The by-product generated from the production of sugar is sent to the down
stream industry. Molasses, generated from sugar manufacturing finds its way to
the distillery industry which is adjacent to the sugar complex, where it is
used as a raw material to produce various industrial chemicals, alcohol, and
power biofuels. Presently M/s Purti Co-operative Sugar Mill has a well equipped
distillery complex for production of Sprit and Ethanol with installed capacity
of 45,000 KLPD of sprit and 1,20,000 KLPD of ethanol which is an important
basic feed stock for manufacture of various chemicals. These chemicals are good
substitutes for petrochemicals and petrol based chemicals in India. The waste
water produced is treated in the effluent treatment plant and then treated
water is recycled for on-site use, sent back to the river or used to irrigate
the cane-farms.
 
Molasses stream.
 
The fibrous cane material left after the extraction of juice, called bagasse
goes to the boiler, wherein the same is burnt producing steam and electricity.
At present M/s Purti Co-operative Sugar Mill is producing 2 MW electricity that
powers the mill to process sugar from cane juice and alcohol in distillery
industry.
 
M/s Reliance Industries has recently signed an electricity purchase
agreement of 22 MW with Purti. The bagasse is being stored into a open ground.
The construction of full fledge co-generation plant is ongoing. Very soon it
will start working to its full capacity. the two multi fuel boiler has been
constructed with installed capacity i.e. working pressure 22 KG and 67 KG
respectively
 
Bio-Disel Complex
 
Purti Sakhar Karkhana is one of its kind which has a bio-diesel plant. This
plant was started to cope up with the power shortage and fuel problem. When the
sugar complex was in the preliminary stage there was a lot of vehicles and
generator use to work for 24 hr. which consume huge amount of fuel and
accounted for the extra cost to the mill, which prompted Mr. Gadkari chairman
of this mill and he had started the bio-disel plant with an installed capacity
of 3000 liters as a solution to the problem. This complex has started to make
biodisel from cotton seed oil and Jatropa (local name karanji) cotton seed
which is locally available in good quantity and quality. Presently all the
vehicles ,generators and other instruments which need petroleum fuel are
running on biodisel produced by M/s Purti Co-operative Sugar Mill.
 
Bio-composting unit
 
Spent wash generated from the distillery, sludge from ETP and excess of bagasse
is used as a filler material for bio-composting, The produced compost is then
supplied to the farmers at nominal cost.
 
Recommendations:
 
1) Mill should take up a sort of programme to encourage the nearby farmers for
sugarcane plantation.
 
2) There are very few water irrigation schemes in this area therefore mill can
think to develop water reservoirs and provide irrigation facility on subsidized
rate.
3) As practiced in the western Maharashtra mill can think for the bio-gas
generation plant.
 
4) Mill have to undertake few rain water, rooftop rain water and ground water
recharging projects in the area.
 
5) It is highly recommended that mill should established agriculture
development department.

Half Pants Nazis, BJP and RSS Bid for ‘Fourth Reich’ - Exclusive

Half Pants in a recent meet disclosed for the first time its agenda of hiring
10,000 RTI and PIL activists all over India to destabilize Government of India,
that I already knew except that it is ten times larger than my estimation.

I always maintain RSS BJP have communal agenda from founding days 86 years ago
as a strategy to protect upper caste, Bania Traders in particular.

But its two successive Losses that meant it shall be out of power for 2×365
days when it could enjoy one full term after winning highest number of seats in
the Lok Sabha with chances of its win next elections and forming ‘Fourth Reich’
becoming a distant possibility with so many ‘Unemployable Leaders’ who can
shout but do nothing was difficult to sustain.

There are some election or other every no and then at Center and in 35 states
from Panchayat to President, all requiring funds when it had yet to return
Loans and Advances taken for 2004 and 2009 elections and therefore lost
credibility to get more in 2013 so it adopted low cost approach to defame
Government of India.

Rules and Regulations for all sectors including Telecom and 2G were framed by
BJP Half Pants that are being abused first by its own Promod Mahajan, Khanduri,
Shourie, Ram Naik, Suresh Prabhu in Telecom, NHAI, Petroleum & Gas, Power
& Rivers etc.

Half Pants had not done anything to Plug The Holes in Governance that they
created to facilitate Looters in seven years and they actually want to ‘Persist
With Loot Program on Return to Power’.

Desperate Nazis planned to kill Allied leaders with spiked whisky

London: Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler’s henchmen got so desperate in the dying
months of World War II that they planned to use poisoned chocolate, coffee and
whisky to assassinate Allied leaders, de-classified documents reveal.

The Nazi henchmen also planned to create a “Fourth Reich” by sending secret
agents to start unrest and promote fascism all over the globe, according to the
files.

Both schemes were concocted in the dying months of the war, when Hitler was
certain to lose and the Allies were poised to take control of Europe. They were
revealed by Nazi agents, captured by British intelligence in 1945.

Details have now been made public for the first time in British spy agency MI5
files published at the National Archives in Kew, London.

One memo says the poison plot was the subject of a Berlin conference in October
1944. Assassins were told they could put lethal substances in whisky, schnapps
and wine, or inject killer chemicals into sausages.

But Allied soldiers were warned not to eat German food and chocolate and coffee
samples were sent back to London for analysis, the documents have revealed.
Other secret weapons included cigarette lighters that gave off lethal fumes and
poison pills disguised as aspirins. PTI

Jewish extremist plotted to kill Churchill during World War II, reveal MI5
papers

AJewish extremist, who killed a UK minister during World War II, also plotted
to assassinate the then PM Winston Churchill in a bid to shatter the nation’s
morale, declassified documents reveal. Eliyahu Bet-Zuri suggested sending
agents of the Stern Gang, a Zionist paramilitary group devoted to forcing the
British out of Palestine, to UK to kill the wartime PM, according to the
British spy agency MI5 files. In fact, Bet-Zuri suggested that Churchill should
be a target in November 1944. However, the MI5 did not learn of the idea until
the following year when a member of the group was arrested. PTI

NGO writes to Prez for inquiry against ex-CJI

TIMES NEWS NETWORK April05, 2011

New Delhi: An NGO, Committee on Judicial Accountability and Reforms (COJAR), on
Monday wrote to the President and the Prime Minister to initiate inquiry into
alleged corruption charges against National Human Rights Commission chairman
and former Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan.

In a letter signed by the organization’s working committee member and advocate
Prashant Bhushan, COJAR requested them to send a “reference to the Supreme Court
for inquiry into misbehaviour of Justice K G Balakrishnan under Section 5(1) of
the NHRC Act” to commence the process of his removal as head of the apex human
rights body.

Listing out allegations against him in connection with alleged disproportionate
assets amassed by his relatives during his tenure as the Chief Justice of India
from 2007 to 2010, the NGO said the accusations had cast a shadow on Justice
Balakrishnan’s integrity.
