Please ask the Hon’ble PM to give a statement on a scheme similar to the Food security bill launched with much fanfare in 1975 to reduce malnutrition . This scheme was called the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) . It has been around for the past 38 years and now again another bill to remove malnutrition ? Despite this scheme being around for about four decades, the scenario is as mentioned below ;
It is a matter of serious concern that the mean per capita consumption of calories has never crossed the minimum threshold for intake ( 2400 Kcal in rural and 2100 Kcal in urban areas), and still about 3/4th of the households do not consumer the minimum calorific intake (Dr.D.K.Taneja, 2013, p. 21)
Protein Energy Malnutrition (PEM) most commonly prevalent in India . 45.3 percent of children under 3 years are under weight as per NFHS -3. Also, as per NFHS-3 , 33 percent of adult women and 28.1 percent of adult men have below normal BMI (Dr.D.K.Taneja, 2013, p. 301)
According to the information procured from the Ministry of Women and Child development via RTI through their letter dated 25 July 2013 ( F. No. 10-1/2011-CD.II(Pt.II)
Total money spend in 11th plan on ICDS was Rs.43829.53 Crore
Total money spent in 2012-13 is 15701.50 crore
During the 12th Five Year Plan, a total approved allocation of Rs. 1,23,580 crore has been made for the scheme. Any additional requirement of funds under ICDS Scheme can be met through Supplementary Demands for Grants and savings. ( Source http://pib.nic.in/newsite/erelease.aspx?relid=93731 )
I think food security bill means ‘another bill for the poor and dollars for the congress’ .
This bill might be another money-making scheme in the name of aam aadmi .. Already, all the FM channels have been bombarded with advertisements for the Food security bill making the intentions of congress very clear that this is a poll gimmick

Dear Mr. Manmohan ji,
More than six years back, we handed the reins of a great country to you, assuming that, you were the person who had turned around India in the late 80’s. It was on the basis of the past credentials that you were asked to be the supreme custodian of the nation, its values, its sovereignty and its 1.2 billion people . We were wrong , it was Narasimha Rao who did it , and you just got the credit . Also, i presume, that besides devaluing the currency , and giving into the IMF’s demands, you did not have any alternatives , so unnecessarily , you took the credit after being pushed to the wall. Now where is your economic understanding and knowledge in taming inflation , when inflation is killing the common man for over about years now ??
Your men ( ministers) have looted the nation to the tune of Rs. 3.0Lac crore ( 1.72 Lac in the 2G scam and 70,000 Crore in CWG + other routine scams and bribes will add up to the figure of Rs.3.0+ Lac Crore , and now you are claiming innocence and stating that you have nothing to hide !!
You cannot hide anything Manmohan ji, you are already exposed by the taped conversations and the reports of the CAG ! The technology ( mobile phone licenses ) which gave your men 1000’s of Crores , that same technology ( Taped phone conversations of Niira Radia ) exposed you bare before the common man !! People are now asking you to go under the scanner to be punished and that’s a fair thing to ask, as the nation has been under siege by your men, who have recklessly looted the nation and thrown the laws to the wind . This in itself shows how serious the issue is ? You come from a party that that have never respected democracy , and still believes that Gandhi family is the start and end of all. Congress have even strangulated the democracy & its institutions , and has put to stake the interests of the nation before the interests of the dynasty . Do not forget that Indira became a dictator by imposing emergency , and that’s the party you belong to right now . So when congress arm twists politicians with CBI raids and IT notices , you are just carrying on with the DNA of Indira’s dictatorial policies, that were like ‘ either support us or else get harassed’ . Do you not see that Jagan was denied his father’s role , and Rahul has been appointed the Secretary of Congress due to his Surname !! Does it not prove double standards .
As a head of the gang that has looted the nation of Rs. 3 lac crore , you should be thankful to the opposition that they have not asked for your resignation till now . As head of the gang ( basically , what i am saying is that , you are an offender and have committed a crime of betraying the trust of a billion people ) , you have no right to decide who will probe you and how ? You are a big fat offender in supreme office ? You must voluntarily step down and face the law. You cannot be probed till you are in the seat of the Prime Minister . How can a thief decide who will put him to trial ? and which laws will apply to him ? Aren’t you doing just that ? You are a miserable failure as a PM on all accounts , and people have just got carried away by your fanciful & foreign degrees and your old age for which you are being respected .
You loot the nation first and then cry aloud that you are as Pristine as the silver clouds in the sky ?
I am marking this mail to the top leaders of the opposition to ensure that they reconsider their demand, and ask for your resignation besides JPC. If the leaders fail to do so , the public will punish them for not caring for the interest of the common man ! Manmohan ji , You have failed in your fiduciary responsibility as the custodian of this nations , its democratic values and institutions , and now Sonia , Rahul and you are talking like an opposition party , stating that we will have a five pronged approach to fight corruption ? That too, after systematically looting the nation, you are trying to become saintly policemen ? Were you not the PM when you supported Raja, and said that you are in the loop of all that is happening in the DOT ? You were the one who gave him a clean chit ? Now , it’s your time to surrender to the law of the land for a fair probe, and that is a reasonable demand from the opposition . In that , i as a common man , am adding one more genuine request . People with questionable credentials and dubious record of governance must immediately resign
Time to pay for your sins

Manmohan Singh ( You do not deserve any respectable salutations !!)
Dr.Murli Manohar Joshi
Subject : First Hand experience with the de facto Raja i.e. Mr.R.P.Paramesh Kumar
In the year 2007, I had a chance to meet the de facto Raja i.e. R.P.Paramesh Kumar , who has been in the news recently for being the front-man for taking moneybags on behalf of A. Raja
We had a two meetings ( one at his T. Nagar office , and the other in a five star hotel at Chennai ) , and some of the highlights ( take homes from the meetings ) are as mentioned below :
- Paramesh Kumar informed me that he was the cousin of Mr.A.Raja , and that his call was as good as A.Raja’s call . Further , he offered to arrange a meeting with any I.T. company top honchos , and for doing so, his rate was Rs.10 Lac for ten calls . He assured that he would put us in touch with ten people , be it Narayana Murthy , Azim Premji or anyone else , and we had to use the opportunity to make business from those meetings . He was just responsible for getting an appointment !! What a business model !! Rs. One lac per phone call !!
- Also , the person who introduced us to Paramesh Kumar was a nice guy , a close relative of A. Raja . He informed us that Apollo Hospitals group had paid Rs.700 crore to A. Raja for a deal , and that Raja charged for every visit to companies for inauguration and the amount would run into lacs per visit !!
- The same relative informed us that Mr. Paramesh kumar was the cousin of Mr.A.Raja and the company M/s Green house promoters was the entity where Raja routed all his ill gotten wealth
- In one of the meetings with Mr. Paramesh Kumar in a five star hotel , Mr.R.Ramakrishan from Sobha Applied DSP ( part of the Sobha developers ) also joined the meeting.
I have never been into bribing, and so I did not pursue this discussions any further, and this remained just an exploratory meeting called at the behest of Raja’s close relative . This was in 2007, and I am sure that from 2007 ( or even before 2007 ) , Mr. Raja would have made 100’s of crore rupees making calls at the rate of Rs.1 lac per call to just fix meetings !! Manmohan ji , I do not know how he could do that with you as the PM ???
Manmohan Singh ji, if your ministers did such things while you were presiding over them as a PM , what does it indicate ? It is clear that you were a like a blind security guard on duty who did not see who was looting the building which you were supposed to safeguard !! If your intelligence failed even over your cabinet colleagues , how do I expect as a common man, that the same intelligence and supervision will take care of the safety of the nation and its borders !!
Last week , I was in a meeting ( which was also attended by senior people from the USA ), and one of the presenters had a slide that read – “We are a scam friendly nation ”. Trust me , it pained me a lot, and I felt ashamed before foreigners, that what people like you have made of this, once a great country – India !!
Nehru ignored corruption , Indira patronized it , Rajiv participated in it , and now , Rahul and Sonia are setting new benchmarks in corruption . If India had great leaders , we had just about 300 million population during independence ,and we could have become a developed nation by 1975 itself !! A system delivers what it is made for , and India’s system is made to work for inefficiency and corruption !!
I was in Delhi a day before yesterday ,and was having coffee with one of the Rahul’s close aide and advisor , and after an hour of discussion, he accepted that the future of the villages in India was ‘doomed’ . He accepted that government has no plan for rural India , and he was equally frustrated with the current scheme of things . Manmohan ji, your people are also fed up with your working !!
Manmohan ji, if you have little respect for the law of nature , please accept your failure and resign
We need drastic changes in our system and the current stream of politicians are not capable to comprehend the need and do the needful
Journalists : I know that you will doubt that I ever met Paramesh kumar , and that I am working for some vested interests ( as Raja’s aides or the morally flexible congress spokespersons would say ) , so I am attaching Paramesh Kumar’s visiting card along with the Sobha’s Director , Mr.Ramakrishnan’s visiting card . I am sure that it good enough ,and trust me , I have no axe to grind . People who have worked with me are aware of my ‘zero tolerance’ towards corruption and bribing .
I do hope that CBI will investigate Sobha’s & Apollo’s connection with this money launderer- Raja & his ill-gotten wealth . I have no proof other than quoting my discussions and attaching the visiting cards . Raja should be arrested immediately ,and his case put directly under a supreme court’s fast track system . Send these corrupt politicians to gallows !
