ARE NARENDRA MODI, ARUN JAITLEY, AMIT SHAH AND RSS REALLY DIRTY MEAN-MINDED PEOPLE?
ONE IS FORCED TO FIND AN ANSWER TO THE UNCOMFORTABLE QUESTION AS TO ARE NARENDRA MODI, ARUN JAITLEY, AMIT SHAH OF THE BHARATIYA JANATA PARTY AND RASHTRIYA SVAYAMSEVAK SANGH OFFICE BEARERS SUCH AS DR MOHAN BHAGWAT JEE REALLY DIRTY PETTY MEAN-MINDED PEOPLE WHEN ONE DISCOVERS THE STARTLING FACTUAL REALITY THAT THESE AFOREMENTIONED WORTHIES (UNWORTHIES?)HAVE TURNED A DEAF EAR AND BLIND EYE TO THE PLEAS OF DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE TO GET HIM JUSTICE IN THE 1991 SAWANI-ANJARLE SILVER SEIZURE CASE...?DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE has since 2014 written several letters to the worthies (UNWORTHIES?) mentioned in the previous paragraph, giving truthful factual details of the daring 1991 Sawani-Anjarle silver seizure worth Rs 2.5 crore (1991 value) effected by him under most adverse circumstances at a remote Western Ghats' beach in Konkan and requesting them to get him justice by removing the injustice done by the Reward Committee in year 2006 under the then Congress regime.
LET US KNOW THE BARE FACTS FIRST:
1) On the silvery night of Jan 1991, DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE then an inspector of Customs effected the bold seizure of silver 3.5 ton (brought illegally by the smugglers) by outwitting a group of 20-35 smugglers. He had just one sepoy to assist him in the operation till morning hours around 7 AM when the help finally arrived from the higher Customs officials!
2) Instead of REWARDING HIM HANDSOMELY AND DECORATING HIM WITH A GALLANTRY AWARD SUCH AS THE ASHOKA CHAKRA, the Customs department started witch-hunt against him on purely flimsy technical grounds through vigilance officers most of whom had never worked in the field formations and as such were unaware of the practical technical difficulty in booking the case as per the rule-book. He was the officer on the spot and had to take the best decision under the trying circumstances (NOT MENTIONED IN THE RULE-BOOKS) which he did, in the process bypassing some technicalities which if had been pursued would have led to smugglers in smuggling the silver ingots successfully without being seized by him! Also, certain higher customs officers wanted him to be punished for having effected the seizure and belittle his brave efforts!
3) In 1998, the BJP party had come into power and it was FULL OF LEADERS WHO WERE IDEALISTS, MATRIOTIC, PATRIOTIC, NATIONALIST, HUMANE AND SUPPORTED HONEST DEDICATED OFFICERS SUCH AS DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE. (The present lot of BJP leaders is MOST UNFORTUNATELY has become a THOROUGHLY DEGRADED version of the PRE-2014 Congress Party and most of them are no more idealists.) The present Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shri Shiv Raj Singh Chauhan then a member of parliament had personally gone to the then FM Yashwant Sinha along with DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE and persuaded Yashwant Sinha to get him justice, due reward and gallantry award. Yashwant Sinha promised to do that. But, he got his ministry changed to the Foreign Ministry. Matters lingered, fed up with delay and the witch-hunt, DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE resigned from the department after putting in nearly 12 years of Great Golden Service.
4) The Customs department refused to give him his GRATUITY despite the Rule being that the employees with minimum service of Five (5) years were eligible for receiving the Gratuity! Also, the government indulged in constitutional impropriety by not covering him under the GOLDEN-HANDSHAKE POLICY under which he would have got a compensation of Rs 10 lakh. Whereas the government of the day gave a liberal compensation package of Rs 10 lakh to those employees of Public Sector Units who resigned voluntarily! Clearly, the government violated the basic principle of EQUALITY before law and Equality of opportunity. But, none cared.
5) He pursued the matter even after resigning. The Customs Commissioner shri Majumder showed him a file in which he had sanctioned Rs 50,000 to him and Rs 40,000 to the sepoy. Shri Majumder kept delaying saying that his (Shri Majumder) limit was to grant a maximum of Rs 50,000, but he said he wanted to get him a bigger reward amount higher than Rs 50,000, i.e., Rs 1 Lakh and above. BUT, THAT NEVER HAPPENED. Instead, those who never liked the booking of this bold seizure ganged up and ensured that the Reward Committee gave less Reward to DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE than the sepoy in the year 2006 in order to punish him for his honest bold efforts and belittle his 'KEY ROLE' in the seizure. He refused to accept it till the year 2008 when he finally accepted it after giving a written protest to Customs Commissioner that he was receiving the reward UNDER PROTEST and that the JUSTICE be done to him. This meant that he had RESERVED THE RIGHT TO RETURN THE REWARD MONEY IF NO JUSTICE WAS LATER DONE TO HIM AND NO HIGHER REWARD THAN THE SEPOY WAS GIVEN TO HIM...!
6) He kept writing to Pune Customs and Finance minstry to get him justice.They refused. He applied for rejoining. That was refused, too! The department refused to treat the absence due to resignation as the leave period for study (He meanwhile had done his full time Post-graduation in Economic Geography from the University of Pune). The TV channels and so-called public-crusaders such as The Times of India, The Indian Express, etc., MOST CURIOUSLY, refused to take up his case OR put pressure on the government to get him justice!
7) In 2014, he returned the Reward Amount of Rs 95,000 to the then Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Neither the cheque was encashed nor the justice given. Earlier, even the then president of India Dr APJ Kalam didn't respond to hids pleas for help!
8) He wrote to the present PM Narendra Modi to intervene in the year 2014. The PM didn't. He wrote to Shri Mohan Bhagwat Jee, the RSS head; Arun Jaitley the FM; Amit Shah the BJP President. None of these responded positively. Then he returned the Reward amount to the Customs department Pune in the year 2016. They sat on the cheque for three months and sent it back just a few days before its expiry and RUBBED IN SALT ON WOUNDS by saying MERCILESSLY that THERE WAS NO PROVISION IN LAW TO ACCEP THE REWARD AMOUNT THAT WAS ONCE GIVEN EARLIER! Then, he returned the Reward amount via a cheque to Shri Narendra Modi the Indian Prime Minister in the year 2016. NO POSITIVE ACTION SO FAR FROM THIS SO-CALLED MASS-LEADER WHO PRIDES HIMSELF BEING HONEST AND FIGHTING AGAINST BUREAUCRATIC CORRUPTION...!
It is really sad to learn that the Indian PM Narendra Modi under MISGUIDED BAD INFLUENCE refused to do justice by indirectly referring to DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE in his speech in Varanasi in 2016 when he said that -"The path of those swamis is better who don't seek benefits than those Swamis who seek benefits." and advised BJP cadres to stay away from controversial figures. The gullible mainstream mass media mistook it as a dig at the Congress.
Does seeking and getting justice mean seeking unjustifiable benefits? Aren't gallant soldiers awarded/rewarded their rightful due? Do Narendra Modi and his team-mates want DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE to lead a saintly life by BEGGING AROUND FOR ALMS/FOOD? Or worse still, Do these Worthies wish DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE to meet the same fate as was met by Prem Chand the Great Hindi writer in pre-independent India whom no WORTHY POLITICIANS OF THE DAY SUCH AS JAWAHAR LAL NEHRU HELPED AND HE DIED IN UTTER ECONOMIC POVERTY?
9) He had sent the whole file on Sawani-Anjarle Silver Seizure injustice to the Supreme Court Chief Justice in the year 2012-2013. Later RTI reply revealed that the matter was filed since it wasn't fit to be pursued! In 2016 too, he wrote to Chief Justice of India TS Thakur, thinking that the learned Justice who had publicaly shed tears on not receiving help from Modi-led NDA Government would surely empathise with his sad plight and get him Justice. But, it seems his pain was the only pain in the world to be taken care of and no one else's pain, least of all DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE 's...! The office of the learned Chief Justice refused to get him justice, too, as was learnt through a RTI reply...!
However, DR SWAAMEE APRTEMAANANDAA JEE has UNSHAKABLE UNFLINCHING FULL FAITH IN THE SUPREME CONSCIOUSNESS WHICH SHALL SOONER OR LATER COME TO HIS RESCUE...!
