After HC Order Enact Central Law to Protect Cows: VHP
Welcoming the Himachal Pradesh High Court order directing the government to enact law for banning cow slaughter, besides imposing total ban on sale, export and import of the beef and beef-products in Bharat within the next three months, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad joint secretary general Dr Surendra Jain demanded immediate compliance of the court order. “To honour its commitment, public sentiments, compliance of the court order as well as the constitutional provisions, the Union Government should not delay any more,” he said in a statement issued in New Delhi on October 16. He said leaving behind narrow political motives, the Congress and other political parties should also come forward for total ban on the cow slaughter, as the Congress governments also banned cow slaughter in many states during its tenure.
BMS appeals for protecting labours interest in labour reforms
BMS appealed to the government to protect the labourers’ interests while finalising the draft industrial code. BMS says that the proposed draft industrial code proposes easing of hire and fire norms for companies, among others. During the deliberations held by Labour Ministry with the employers and the employees on the revised Draft Bill, which proposes to combine Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, Trade Unions Act, 1926, and Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Act, 1946 into a single code, the BMS said they do not support certain provisions of the Draft Bill. BMS north zone organising secretary Shri Pawan Kumar said the Labour Ministry had agreed on the provision of one-third outsiders in trade unions in organised sector and 50 per cent outsiders in unorganised sector would not be changed. Now they want there should be no outsiders in the union. “They had agreed on collective bargaining table where persons getting 15 per cent of votes will get a seat in the table to negotiate with management,” he said adding that the new Bill proposes that once negotiations are on then there will be no strike. n
Integral Humanism is practical model of development
A marvelous oil painting of Nanaji Deshmukh, made by leading painter Sardar RM Singh, was inaugurated by Haryana Governor Shri Kaptan Singh Solanki in Delhi on October 11. The occasion was 99th birth anniversary of Nanaji. A seminar on Integral Humanism and Self Reliance was also held on the occasion.
Speaking at the seminar Swadeshi ideologue Shri P Murlidhar Rao expressed concern that Bharat, the country blessed with the largest quantity of fertile land in the world, imports foodgrains and pulses for several years. “Bharat is the largest consumer of pulses. If we continue to import them our self-dependency and self-reliance will be endangered. Therefore, it is direly needed that Bharat increases the production of pulses. Similar is the condition with the edible oils. If we have to materialise the thinking of Deendayalji and strengthen our self-reliance we will have to give priority to the small scale industries. We can learn much from the experiments conducted in Chitrakoot by Nanaji,” he said.
Shri Kaptan Singh Solanki stressed the need to utilise the birth centenaries of Deendayalji and Nanaji for educating the masses for self-reliance. He said Integral Humanism is not an alternative thinking; it is an eternal view for the benefit of the humanity. He called Nanaji as a leader, statesman and founder. That is why he is Rashtrarishi. He materialised the views of Nanaji and showed the world that it is a practical model of development. n
