“White Paper” on Irrigation scam is Eyewash attempt to save Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare :Vidarbha Farm widows to burn copies of “White Paper”
Most awaited ‘white Paper’ on irrigation massive scam in which ministers floated rules to siphoned our Rs.50,000 crore money spent on irrigation project has turned out to be another hoax and now it’s hostile attempt on Mahrashtra Govt. to protect involved ministers Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare and give them clean chit as white paper has been salient on these issues raised by media, activist and senior irrigation officials who has raised serious questions on the functioning of these ministers which has forced Ajit pawar to step down as Dy.Chief Minister of Maharashtra ,will have very serious implication over creditability of Maharashtra CM, alleged Vidarbha farmers pressure group Vidarbha Janandolan Samiti president Kishore Tiwari urging the Indian prime minister to initiate the action .
“It was expected when media exposed the corruption followed by activist and opposition, Maharashtra Govt. managed to give impression that truth of massive Rs.50,000 crore irrigation scam will be placed before the nation and ministers and Babus involved in corruption will have to face prosecution but web copy of white paper disappointed us that there is baseless data has discussed but nothing about the scam and fixing of it’s accountability is even referred hence this is bankrupt attempt of administration to cover up the historic scam which is directly related massive farmers genocide amounting more than 30,000 in last decade as per NCRB report in Maharashtra .we will protest the Govt. move and will start agitation against Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare till they jailed ,hundreds of farm widows who are victims of vidarbha agrarian crisis will burn the copy of this fabricated ‘white paper’ on 11th December and will distribute “Black Paper” irrigation scam in which NCP ministers and Ajit Pawar, directly involved ,we will atke this issue to it’s logical conclusion” Tiwari added.
When Prime Minister Dr.Man Mohansingh declared Rs.3750 crore on 1st July 2006 at Nagpur a special vidarbha relief package in which he e more than Rs.2800 crore for increasing irrigation facility in order to stop on going farmer suicides promising more fund flow for completing all pending irrigation projects of vidarbha ,it was never thought that even Rs.30,000 crore given for irrigation project will be siphoned out and condition as per irrigation facilities are concerned are more worst in 2012 than 2006 ,thanks to the super power minister of Maharashtra Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare resulting more than 7116 vidrabha farmers suicides after July 2006 which case of mass genocide of vidarbha farmers inviting criminal prosecution of Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare ,Tiwari said
‘In fact irrigation Vidarbha for years suffered neglect under irrigation department run by western Maharashtra politicians but irrigation scam of state's deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar who was state's irrigation minister from 1999 to 2009 and also ex-officio chairman of VIDC and then Sunil Tatkare is massive one as 38 ongoing irrigation schemes by increasing their estimated costs by over four times to Rs 26,722.23 crore from the original Rs 6672.27 crore. This happened in a single year - 2009 - with a majority of approvals given in three months, between June and August, just a couple of months before the state elections by going out of the way to favour a group of contractors that included Rajya Sabha member Ajay Sancheti, Sancheti who has a major stake in irrigation business is reported to be also close to Pawar. A group of contractors including Sancheti, Avinash Bhosle of Pune who was named in CIDCO land scam and Yavatmal MLC Sandip Bajoria ,MLC Mitesh Bangadiya, a contractor are among the chosen few to have got mobilization advance even though there was no such clause in original tender document. It is highly shocking MP Ajay Sancheti circumvented the rules to bag contracts hence we demand criminal action against all are involved in this irrigation scam amounting more tha Rs.30,000 crore’ Kishore Tiwari added.
‘if money given for these irrigation project ,debt trapped and distressed vidarbha farmer would have been benefited and farmer suicides would have been stopped but all money to increase irrigation facility has taken away by these minister who are the killer of these vidarbha farmers hence criminal action against these ministers and contractors is must’ Tiwari added .
