Exposed: Fire Safety goes for a Toss in Dwarka; Fire Department Reluctant to Act

exposed-compressDwarka, New Delhi: Having a Fire Safety Certificate from the Delhi Fire Services is a must for any building in the city. An RTI application filed by Ek Sangharsh (an NGO based in Dwarka) has revealed that many establishments in the sub-city of Dwarka do not have the mandatory fire safety clearance and still the buildings have been in operation for years together.

These establishments running without a Fire Safety Clearance include the following:

1)      Ayushman Hospital, Sector 12, Dwarka

2)      Bensups Hospital, Sector 12, Dwarka

3)      Arthemis Hospital, Sector 20, Dwarka

4)      Manish Global Mall, Sector 22, Dwarka

5)      Welcom Hotel, Sector 10, Dwarka

6)      Evergreen Sweets, Sector 10, Dwarka

7)      KFC, Sector 4, Dwarka

8)      Delhi International School, Sector 23, Dwarka

9)      DDA Market Complexes of Sector 6, 10, 11, 12, 4 and 5, Dwarka

Shobhit Chauhan, President, Ek Sangharsh said, ‘Hospitals, schools, markets, etc operating without a fire safety certificate is a very serious issue. There have been a few fire incidents in the recent past. It seems we arewaiting for some major accident to take action.’

Safety of the common man is being compromised in the national capital. It is a very crucial issue and authorities must take immediate action. As informed by Chauhan, Ek Sangharsh has sent a letter to the Chief Fire Officer, Delhi for immediate action against the above mentioned buildings and others operating without fire safety clearance.

Dr. G. C. Mishra, Chief Fire Officer (for areas including Dwarka) when contacted by Dwarka Express, said that he was not ware of any such issue.

Now, its up to the common man if they still want to use these building or they will boycott them! We pray no untoward accident takes place and everybody stays safe. But such casual attitude of the authorities and concerned building owners surely raises a question mark on the way things are happening in our city.

Janmashtami Celebrations in Dwarka

krishnaEvery year in the month of July or August the birth of Lord Sri Krishna is celebrated as Janmashtami. As per the Hindu calendar Janmashtami is celebrated on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksh or the 8th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadon.

Sri Krishna, who is considered to be one of the most powerful human incarnations of the Lord Vishu, was born around 5,200 years ago in Mathura. The sole objective of Sri Krishna’s birth was to free the Earth from the demons. Sri Krishna propagated the theory of bhakti and good karma which are narrated deeply in the Bhagwat Geeta.

Sri Krishna was born in a prison in the custody of Kansa, his maternal uncle. Sri Krishna is believed to be borned on a dark, stormy and windy night. Vasudev, His father decided to hand over his child to Nandto save Krishna from the clutches of Kansa. Krishna grew up in Gokul and finally killed his maternal uncle, King Kansa.

All over India this day is celebrated with devotional songs and dances, pujas, arti, blowing of the Conch and rocking the cradle of baby Sri Krishna.

Hindus celebrate Janmashtami by fasting and staying up until midnight, the time when Krishna is believed to have been born. Images of Krishna’s infancy are placed in swings and cradles in temples and homes. At midnight devotees gather around for devotional songs, dance and exchange gifts. Some temples also conduct reading of the Hindu religious scripture Bhagavad Gita.

Like every year, Dwarka is also gearing up for Janmashtami Celebrations with the following events scheduled for Janmashtami:

1. Dwarka Sector 10 DDA Ground  by Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan from 26th August to 28th August (7PM to 11PM)

2. Dwarka Sector 7 Shri Ram Mandir on 28th August from 5:30PM onwards.

3. Dwarka Sector 13 Shri Shri Rukmini Dwarkadhish Temple by ISKCON on 28th August from 4:30PM onwards.

Apart from these major events, a lot more events are being planned for Janmashtami in Dwarka. We invite photographs of the celebrations from all residents of Dwarka to be included in post event coverage.

Ek Sangharsh, a registered NGO, in collaboration with One Sight India Foundation organised a Free Eye Care Camp at Govt Co-ed Senior Secondary School, Pochanpur, Dwarka, New Delhi today (11th July 2013).

A total of about 900 students were screened at the camp by a team of 6 doctors and about 10 volunteers. Of these 900 screened students, about 100 need vision glasses which will be provided by the One Sight India Foundation free of cost. Another 150 students were prescribed general medicines and exercises as preventive measure.

‘Usually govt school students are not able to avail such facilities and there is also a lack of awareness among the parents about eye care.

कर्नाटक चुनाव – सात दिग्गजों का शक्ति परिक्षण

यूं तो कर्नाटक में 224 सीटों में से 223 सीटों पर लगभग तीन हजार उम्मीद्वारों की किस्मत ईवीएम में बंद हो चुकी है, इन सब के बीच कुछ ऐसे दिग्गज नेता हैं जिन पर सबकी नजरें होंगी । कर्नाटक चुनाव में अगर सबसे ज्यादा किसी की साख दांव पर है तो वो है सत्तारुढ़ पार्टी बीजेपी । किसी दक्षिण भारतीय राज्य की सत्ता का स्वाद पहली बार चख चुकी बीजेपी इसे किसी भी हाल में खोना नहीं चाहती । मुदद्दे कई हैं, नेता भी कई हैं, लेकिन इन सब के बीच में हैं कर्नाटक के वो सात सूरमा जिनका महत्व जितना अब है शायद नतीजे आने के बाद कई गुना बढ़ जाए । आइये देखते हैं कौन हैं कर्नाटक के वो सात दिग्गज ।

कर्नाटक के पहले दिग्गज है बी.एस.येदियुरप्पा -ये वो नेता हैं जिन्होंने बीजेपी को पहली बार किसी दक्षिणी राज्य में सत्ता का सुख दिलाया । लेकिन भ्रष्टाचार के आरोपों से घिरे येदियुरप्पा का आज का सबसे बड़ा लक्ष्य है बीजेपी को सत्ता से बाहर करना । कांग्रेस ने उनकी दोस्ती के प्रस्ताव को ठुकराकर उनके इरादों को झटका दिया हो, लेकिन लिंगायत समुदाय में अपने प्रभाव के चलते वो बीजेपी को मुश्किल में डाल कर चुनावों के बाद किंगमेकर की भूमिका में नज़र आ सकते हैं ।

कर्नाटक के दूसरे दिग्गज हैं जगदीश शेट्टर- मुख्यमंत्री जगदीश शेट्टर पर पहले तो येदियुरप्पा का हाथ बना हुआ था पर अब हालात बदल चुके हैं और वैसे भी शेट्टर का नाता बीजेपी आरएसएस और जनसंघ से ज्यादा पुराना है, लेकिन फिर भी योग्य और अच्छी छवि वाले इस लिंगायत नेता के लिए येदियुरप्पा को पीछे छोड़ना आसान नहीं होगा ।

कर्नाटक के तीसरे दिग्गज हैं एस.एम.कृष्णा- एस.एम.कृष्णा की खूबी है जोरदार वापसी करना । आजकल कृष्णा का करियर खत्म होने की बाते होती रहती हों, लेकिन मुख्यमंत्री की कुर्सी से हटाकर महाराष्ट्र का राज्यपाल बनाये जाने के बाद जिस तरह वापसी करते हुए कृष्णा ने जैसे विदेश मंत्री जैसा बड़ा ओहदा हासिल किया उसे देख कर कहा जा सकता है कि कांग्रेस की जीत की स्थिति में नेता पद की दौड़ में कृष्णा फिर उभर के सामने आ सकते हैं ।

कर्नाटक के चौथे दिग्गज हैं सिद्धरमैया- जनता दल से रुठ कर पिछली बार कांग्रेस का दामन थामने वाले सिद्धरमैया को पिछली बार भी मुख्यमंत्री पद का दावेदार माना गया था । इस बार सिद्धरमैया का प्रभाव और कद में बढ़ोतरी हुई है । अति पिछड़ो में लोकप्रिय कुरुबा नेता सिद्धरमैया की भी किस्मत भी अचानक ही चमक सकती है ।

कर्नाटक के पांचवें दिग्गज हैं मल्लिकाअर्जुन खड़गे – 1972 से लगातार चुनाव जीतने वाले कांग्रेसी नेता मल्लिकाअर्जुन ख़डगे एसएम कृष्णा के बाद कांग्रेस के सबसे बड़े नेता हैं। लेकिन दलित समाज से आने की वजह से मल्लिकाअर्जुन खड़गे का महत्व और भी बढ़ जाता है। जानकारों का मानना है सत्तर साल के खडगे का नंबर पिछले ही चुनाव में आ गया था लेकिन वो चूक गए थे । लेकिन खडगे का कर्नाटक में वापसी की संभावनाओं से पूरी तरह से इनकार नहीं किया जा सकता है|

कर्नाटक के छठे दिग्गज हैं एच डी कुमारस्वामी – कर्नाटक के अपने वोक्कालिगा समर्थको और राजधानी के आस-पास बेहतर प्रभाव रखने वाले एच डी कुमारस्वामी पिछली बार के मुकाबले थोड़े मजबूत नजर आ रहे हैं । पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री के पुत्र और पूर्व मुख्यमंत्री कुमारस्वामी इस बार बीजेपी राज के भ्रष्टाचार को सामने लाने और उसका विरोध करने में सबसे आगे रहे जिसका फायदा उन्हे नंबर दो पार्टी के तौर पर मिल भी सकता है|

कर्नाटक के सातवें दिग्गज हैं के.एस.ईश्वरप्पा -1989 से लगातार विधायक और अपने काम से नाम कमाने वाले ईश्वरप्पा का कद आज बीजेपी में काफी उंचा है और यही वजह है कि उन्हे राजस्व मंत्रालय जैसा विभाग मिला है । ईश्वरप्पा के इसी तेजी से बढ़ते प्रभाव की वजह से ही शायद येदियुरप्पा ने उन्हे मुख्यमंत्री नहीं बनने दिया । उनपर पिछड़ो के वोट बीजेपी की झोली में लाने का सबसे बड़ा दारोमदार है और कामयाब होने की स्थिति में वो ईनाम पाने के हकदार भी हो सकते हैं । अब देखना ये है कि इन सात दिग्गजों में से कौन चुनाव के बाद कर्नाटक का सबसे बड़ा दिग्गज बन कर सामने आता है ।

Incident of 30th April 13, High handiness of Dwarka Police against law abiding citizens

This is to inform you and share the high handiness of Dwarka Police against Mr. Rejimon CK Dwarka Forum by SHO Mr. Ram Kishan Yadav and ASI Mr. Pratap Singh.

Brief incidents as follows:

Mr. Rejimon is the resident of Nav Sansad Vihar CGHS Ltd and an active resident  member of his apartment and Dwarka. Mr. Joginder Singh a resident and former IPS Officer is also resident and former President of that apartment. Mr. Singh  is frequent nuisance for the residents as he was removed from the Post of President under lead activism by Rejimon follwing RCS court of enquiry for delinquency, irregularities etc. Mr. Singh wants free hand parking  for him and his visitors anywhere in the society premise  in objectionable position inside the society.  In-spite of knowing the society policy on parking and also having requested umpteen times  and he is reluctant to do so. The guards and staff request drivers to keep the vehicle park only at designated parking. As these obstruct the movement of vehicles, pedestrian of movement of senior citizen , people with disability and other residents to walk around  and other inconveniences. However Mr. Singh is adamant on not following the Code of Ethics adopted by the General Body of the society and which is implemented for all equally.

The guards and staff of the society were regularly threaten by Mr. Singh and his staffs for asking to abide these rule set by the

Since it was objected by the residents Mr Singh called police and exhibit his power.

In the evening all of sudden there Mr. Samay Singh , ACP Dwarka and Mr. Ram Kishan , SHO Sector 23 appeared in the society asked Rejimon to come down. Mr. Rejimon along with other office bearers of the society reached gate. The management invited them to society office, which they declined. The Management asked the reason for the police presence and on whose complaint. The ACP declined to reveal and told that who authorized the management to stop the vehicle entering the premise. The management informed that No vehicle is stopped only been asked to park in parking area. This would help senior citzen and others to have safe & comfortable  walk.

The ACP and SHO reluctant  to provide any credible reason for their visit as they internal  internal matter,but insist on taking action
against the management and guards for not respecting Mr. Joginder Singh. Police threatened the guard at this point Mr. Rejimon asked to provide the copies of the complaint or call the complainant as this is purely a society internal matter and NOT A LAW AND ORDER issue.

Meanwhile Mr. Samay Singh ACP left  whispering something to SHO on his ears. Mr. Rejimon was trying to make a call from his cell number at this point SHO shouted at Rejimon HOW DARE you to record my interaction on your phone. Mr. Rejimon said as you well aware that the entire complex is under CCTV and even this is recorded. Mr. Ram Yadav on this asked the constable Mr. Ram Pratap who was threatening the guard to take Rejimon into custody and move into the vehicle. On this Mr Rejimon as aware citizen asked him on what provision and without any law and order violation  how could you drag me out from  here.

Mr.Yadav said there is no justification need to provide as I am Police officer and have all the powers. Mr. Ram pratap ASI caught through the collar of the T Shirt of Rejimon and dragged him to SHO Vehicle.   One of the the LADY MC member  who was  also standing with Rejimon was pushed by the SHO and ASI knowing fully that this is against the law.

However the lady residents asked the SHO not to do this kind of action as this is totally illegal and against all rules and ethics. The SHO
and ASI started abusing all the residents and threaten them with dire consequence and pushed again Rejimon and the Lady Member to SHO Vehicle which his driver put on ready in start mode. Meanwhile the SHO called the Police Station and threatened that he will get additional force including lady police and take action.

All the resident had come out to main gate and spoke in one voice that that the Police action was inappropriate and demanded review.

Finally some of the senior citizen and ladies of the society told SHO that what you are doing is highly condemnable and review it. Finally he cool down but he  and his staff Mr. Pratap Singh  continued to threat Rejimon and society  for dire consequences.

Probably the SHO then  realized  that he and his team were wrong on their actions.

Meanwhile Rejimon informed the DF GB Members also and we reached the spot by the time the SHO and team left.

Now what action we all need to take on this repeated behaviour of Police officials especially SHO Mr. R S Yadav and Pratap Singh the ASI as we all see physical assult on females by male police and other innocent public.

This what happen to a person who stand with Police for their good job and appreciate them and to facilitate interaction etc.

We condemn the incident and look forward to take up the issue further.To take official stand of police and to see on what complaint
they acted like that we are meeting at 7 pm today at Police Station 23.

We request all our members, media friends to be present and ensure that police is not for IPS officers only but for us.

क्या सरकार पर लगे ये दाग भी अच्छे है..?

Scams in India

Scams in India

2जी घोटाला हो या फिर कोयला ब्लॉक आवंटन दोनो ही मामलों में जेपीसी की रिपोर्ट जब से आई है देश का राजनीतिक माहौल ऐसा हो गया है जैसे अब से कुछ ही दिनों में अगले लोकसभा चुनाव होने वाले हैं..वैसे तो राजनीतिक दल अपनी अपनी रणनीति बनाने में जुटे थे लेकिन जेपीसी रिपोर्ट के जरिये सरकार ने अपने दाग धोने की कोशिश की है । जेपीसी रिपोर्ट में 2002 तक के सभी कोयला ब्लॉक आवंटनों को अवैध करार दिया गया है और अब सरकार का रवैया कुछ ऐसा है जैसे पिछले कुछ समय में सरकार के उपर 2जी और कोयला ब्लॉक को लेकर जो दाग लगे थे वो दाग अच्छे हैं..! हालांकि इस सब के बीच सबसे बड़ी परेशानी मुख्य विपक्षी दल बीजेपी के लिए उभर कर सामने आई है जिसके अब तक के सबसे प्रभावशाली व्यक्तित्व पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री अटल बिहारी बाजपेयी का नाम इस जेपीसी की रिपोर्ट में आया है..ऐसे में सरकार को घेरने वाली बीजेपी के सामने यही सबसे बड़ी चुनौती है कि जेपीसी की ये रिपोर्ट आने वाले चुनावों में कांग्रेस या युपीए के लिए हथियार के साथ साथ कहीं भ्रष्टाचार औऱ घोटालों के आरोपो की ढाल ना साबित हो जाए..बस बीजेपी के लिए राहत की बात ये है कि सिर्फ एनडीए ही नहीं पूरा विपक्ष इस जेपीसी रिपोर्ट के विरोध में आ खड़ा हुआ है ।

इस सब के बीच सबसे बड़ा सवाल तो ये है कि आखिर सरकार ये जेपीपी जेपीसी का खेल कब तक खेलेगी क्या कैग जैसी विश्वसनीय संस्था की रिपोर्ट को खारिज करना सही है..क्या सरकार के इस कदम से कहीं आने वाले समय में यही परंपरा तो कायम नहीं हो जाएगी कि अगर कैग सरकार के कामकाज पर सवाल उठाए तो जेपीसी जैसी संस्थाओं के माध्यम से कैग पर ही सवाल उठा कर अपने दागों को साफ करने की असंसदीय कृत्य को बढ़ावा दिया जाए..निश्चित ही सरकार को यह सोचना होगा कि अपने आज को संवारने के उद्देश्य से कहीं सरकार भविष्य की राजनीति को औऱ ज्यादा खतरनाक तो नहीं बना रही जिसमें कैग और जेपीसी जैसी संस्थाएं कही एक दूसरे पर आरोप लगाने का माध्यम या सरकारी कठपुतली बन कर रह जाएं जैसे आज के दौर में सीबीआई को माना जाने लगा है ।
