Lokmanas: Declining political culture is a matter of concern

Kirte, Kidke, Kanaahin ‘(September 22) is how the current politics of Kurghodi in Maharashtra is heading towards anarchy.

‘Kirte, Kidke, Kanaahin’ (September 22) is the first article underlining how the current politics of Kurghodi in Maharashtra is heading towards anarchy. The BJP government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Center is also using mechanisms like CBI and ED to discredit its opponents. Every day, it has become a habit to threaten the ministers of the ruling grand alliance, send notices, leave the level and make personal criticisms. That is why the wrong and futile action taken by the Shiv Sena-NCP and Congress government in Maharashtra against BJP Union Minister Narayan Rane and former MP Kirit Somaiya is part of the reaction. In a parliamentary democracy, in order to solve the problems of the people, there is a need for an opposition party responsible for controlling the ruling party. But at present, the opposition leaders like Kirit Somaiya, Rane Kutumbiya, Chitratai Wagh and many others are deliberately leaving the level and doing childish politics. So we have to analyze the declining political culture in the country. – Dr. Dnyaneshwar Digole Bordekar, Nanded

Allegations and lack of transparency in the investigation

‘Kirte, Kidke, Kanahin!’ Read this editorial. Earlier, Somaiya had repeatedly accused the government of harassing several ministers, but if one case was dropped, the answer would be no. Somaiya himself does not have the opportunity to take notice of the allegations made by him from time to time. With the exception of one case, the leaders have managed to stay four hands away from the rounds of inquiry as they are unable to resolve the allegations leveled against the government as well as the authorities at the Center and in the state. The power struggle for political supremacy shows a lack of transparency in both allegations and investigations. – Shrikant Shankarrao Ingle, Pune

Meaningless and unprincipled politics is the reality

I read the headline ‘Kirte, Kidke, Kanaahin’. Political parties as well as leaders are losing their balance in the struggle for power. The harmony in politics is coming to an end. A different formula has been developed in the last few years to make baseless allegations of corruption against the leaders of the Opposition, to create an atmosphere and to confuse the people and win elections without regard for evidence and facts. After being elected, these corrupt leaders are covered up by joining their own party without taking any action against them. ERV is at the forefront of promoting morality and giving a dose of morality to other parties. Inflation, unemployment, fuel prices, stagnant economy, China’s arrears in Ladakh, neglect of the second wave of corona, loss of life, economic and industrial crisis caused by corona have no place in his unprincipled politics. The only goal is to come to power using price-penalty-discrimination policies. – Hemant Sadanand Patil, Goregaon (Mumbai)

Bad banks are a great way to get rid of debt

Clearing the bad banks ‘bad loans into’ bad banks ‘and clearing the original banks’ reports is like putting today’s death on tomorrow or hiding it under the carpet as there is no recovery at all. Recently, the CAC public sector banks had started lending and they had made significant progress. But under the pressure of the political as well as the rich, new loans were given again. Ordinary people are in arrears due to some unjust and unavoidable reasons. But by what justice did a liar like Nirav Modi get a huge loan of Rs 1300 crore? Even though the previous debt is exhausted? This question is still unanswered today. There is no answer as to whether these non-performing loans will be recovered from the bad banks with a new lease or they will disappear again. It is learned that a lot of money was spent on the creation of this bad bank. Does it mean that their way of sinking debt has been paved? This is pure dusting, concealment and fraud or an apologetic attempt to raise the credit rating in the international market. Given today’s dire economic situation, this case is doubtful! – Milind Korlekar, Thane

Soybean prices are a reflection of government policy

After reading the news ‘Soybean prices fall by Rs 2,700’ (September 21), the farmers became aware of the crisis. Last 15-21 days ago, the market price of soybean was 10-11 thousand per quintal. But in the last two days, there was a difference of three to four thousand and it stopped at five to six thousand. The central government is responsible for 12 lakh tonnes of soybean meal imported from abroad. All the politicians say before the election, ‘We will give the price at the basic price’, but we do not want to let the price of agricultural commodities rise above a certain level. Because if it increases, the cost of living of the citizens in urban areas increases. If the ‘raw material’ required for the industry becomes expensive, the ‘cost of production’ may increase. The government then seeks a solution that does not allow the price of agricultural commodities to rise and only keeps on making promises. Until we come to power, everyone shows that there is no guardian for the farmers except us, but in reality, the life of the farmers is in jeopardy. Even now, the government should not reduce the prices of farmers’ grains when they reach the market, but should give them more incentive prices. The key is to implement the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission. – Dattatraya Mahadevi Popat Pachakwade, Chikharde, Solapur

Let the domestic vaccination happen first

The Union Health Minister has said that India will start exporting additional vaccines to other countries from next month. The Government of India has set a target of vaccinating all citizens of the country by the end of December this year. But help the world only when the country’s vaccinations are complete. In the early days after the manufacture of the corona vaccine, the citizens of the country had to bear the brunt of the export of the vaccine. In Maharashtra, there is still a shortage of vaccines. Queues have to be formed for the second dose. There is also a disparity in vaccination between states. Whether a third dose is needed or not depends on how much vaccine is needed. Six vaccines have been allowed in the country so far. Two of the vaccines are produced in the country while we are importing the remaining four vaccines. Therefore, the vaccination campaign should be started only after the completion of the vaccination campaign in India. – Vivek Tawte, Kalwa, Thane

The cautious role of starting a school is the right one!

Teachers, along with the majority of parents, feel that the doors of schools that have been closed for more than a year and a half should be reopened. Many teachers are of the opinion that students will suffer a great loss if they stay away from school for a long time. That is acceptable. It is desirable to start an actual class rather than online. It is equally true that it is more important in terms of education. But since the possibility of a third wave of Corona cannot be ruled out or until concrete conclusions are reached about it, the government seems to be taking a cautious stance on opening children’s schools. Although the intensity of the second wave seems low, it is not excluded, the newly infected patients are seen in daily readings. In such a case, it seems appropriate to take a cautious stance and take cautious steps for the sake of children for some time to come. – Vishwanath Pandit, Chiplun

Change over time rather than cheat

Read the news regarding vegetable price hike (September 21). Although the reasons for the rise in prices of vegetables are plausible, the actual increase in prices is unbearable. There is a big difference between the wholesale market price of vegetables and the retail market price. If we look at the difference between buying from farmers and selling in the retail market, we will notice the looting of citizens. Does the fuel price hike apply only to retailers? Farmers are not getting the benefit of this hike. Therefore, along with the farmers, the common man is also affected. Traditionally there is a demand for certain vegetables in the patriarchy and retailers take advantage of this tradition. That is why ordinary citizens have to change with the changing times. Alternative use of cheap vegetables, pulses and pulses instead of expensive vegetables will curb the looting of common people. If the municipal corporation gives priority to setting up mandai according to the ward, the number of vegetables sitting on the road will also decrease. Ordinary citizens should also respond to such mandis in a big way and contribute to the municipal corporation, cleanliness and openness. – Rajan Butala, Dombivali
