Displacement, Depopulation and Destruction Of Third World Geo-Economics

Since the advent of the Roman Empire there were continuous attempts to grab resources from other regions. The most favourable method followed was to kill everybody whom they did not like. This policy was sanctified when the papal bull Inter Caetera was issued in 1493. In its wildest sense it was interpreted by its followers as having possession or sovereignty over anything they touch and kill everyone who opposed it. This was the beginning of spiritual depopulation of America’s and Africa by claiming that blacks, browns and reds did not possess any soul and so can be killed. Flowing the Spanish massacre of Indians in South America, British in the current USA came up with their own version of killings.

To control the resources, they distributed small-pox infested blankets to resisting Indians to wipe them out. Millions of souls perished in a span of 100 years in America’s and Africa thus making the resources available to what is currently known as USA, making it a superpower. Now the eyes are set on Indian and Chinese resources and the same policy is reflected in West’s National Policy documents which indicate India as a greatest threat for their survival. How this depopulation strategy plays out in the Indian context and how to survive it as a nation and culture is the subject matter of this series of articles which GreatGameIndia will bring forth in future issues.

Throughout civilizations for centuries together we have seen many wars; fighting for kingdoms or to push religious ideologies onto people, but they never meddled with ‘nature’ because most of them saw it as a sacred thing. In India since ages ‘nature’ was a part of cultural life, where we saw trees, plants and agricultural crops in their spiritual aspect rather than commercial. That is why even though we had capability to lay roads and build huge infrastructure projects we didn’t pursue such type of development because we saw it as cultural degradation and could foresee the harmful effects of such development later generations of societies would have to suffer.

Beginning of Chemical Warfare – Discovery of Benzene

With the discovery of Benzene the lethal chemical pesticide industry came to boom. Though these chemicals were first used in World War 2 chemical warfare divisions, after the war their alternative application was to convert them into agricultural pesticides. This pesticide solution though initially worked for 20 years after World War 2, started popping more pest resistant bugs and as a result more and more pesticides were needed to solve the problem.

After the war US got war profits and Germany produced brilliant scientists. Both the US and German interests merged to create powerful industrial conglomerates. Between 1914 till date another phenomenon occurred in USA. The British seeking revenge for their defeat in the US War of Independence steadily and slowly tried to undermine American independence by creating banking and industrial conglomerates in USA as opposed to free entrepreneurship, liberty and creative innovation guaranteed by US constitution. This battle is still waged by current senators like Ron Paul (libertarian) and others. This battle of control for the US government between British sponsored banker industrialist elite and US constitutional libertarians saw hundreds of people die including presidents. Since 1975 post the death of President Kennedy, US, slowly but steadily slipped into the control of British sponsored crony capitalist multinational corporations with disastrous effects for the world at large.

At the same time US is also struggling to win the war with Vietnam, a tiny country in South Asia. From 1967-1972 US conducted ‘Weather Warfare’ on Vietnam. This was the first time when reports officially came out about ‘Weather Warfare’. But sadly no Indian media covered it or either military or civil education system taught about this kind of warfare to Indian society.

In developed countries more than dozen academies study about Chemical and other kind of Warfare which the Indian society has never heard off even after more than 60 years of independence.

For instance, on Dec. 10, 1974, the U.S. National Security Council under Henry Kissinger completed a classified 200-page study called the “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study falsely claimed that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) was a grave threat to U.S. national security. Adopted as official policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford, NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in those countries through birth control, and also, implicitly, war and famine. Brent Scowcroft, who had by then replaced Kissinger as national security adviser (the same post Scowcroft was to hold in the Bush administration), was put in charge of implementing the plan. CIA Director George Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture.

One of the major sources for the study was the Royal Commission on Population, which King George VI had created in 1944 “to consider what measures should be taken in the national interest to influence the future trend of population.” The commission found that Britain was gravely threatened by population growth in its colonies, since “a populous country has decided advantages over a sparsely-populated one for industrial production.” The combined effects of increasing population and industrialization in its colonies, it warned, “might be decisive in its effects on the prestige and influence of the West,” especially effecting “military strength and security.”

The average Indian citizen is left with the impression that the religious wars of Europe are a relic of the past. This erroneous assumption is perhaps critical in preventing him from understanding the political reality of today. The fact is that while the wars of Europe provided motive for the exploitation of India in the past, they continue to do so even today. We hope this article will provide an insight into the sophistication and complexity of the manner in which these are carried out.

For instance we take the case when Britain used Indian troops like guinea pigs to test mustard gas. British military scientists tested mustard gas on hundreds of Indian soldiers in more than a decade of experiments. Indians were sent into the gas chambers wearing no more than “drill shorts and open-necked khaki cotton shirts” to gauge the effect of mustard gas on their eyes. The experiments to determine whether mustard gas damaged Indians’ skin more than British soldiers’ began in the early 1930s and lasted more than 10 years at a military site in Rawalpindi, now in Pakistan. The tests caused large numbers of burns, some of which were so damaging the subjects had to be hospitalized.

During World War II, nearly 2,000 American military personnel participated in experiments conducted by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. They were often promised weekend passes and were not told the nature of the experiments, which…

Government Forces Inflict Devastating Strikes vs ISIS Across Syria Post Flight 7K9268 Crash

In addition to the increased firepower being unleashed by the Russians against the bearded terrorists ISIS just after its passenger plane was knocked out from the skies of Sinai Peninsula, the Syrian government forces reciprocated the Russian efforts by inflicting heavy casualties against its enemy across Syria for the last 24 hours.

A nationwide effort is not underway to flush out the CIA-trained and equipped terrorists.

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army continued its countrywide operations against the terrorist organizations, and destroyed tens of positions, facilities and command posts of the militant groups in the last 24 hours.

The army units carried out massive military operations in Lattakia, Deir Ezzur, Idlib, Hama, Hasaka, Aleppo and Sweida.

The Pope: “a poor church for the poor”

September 25, 2015

In his first statement to the press after his election as Pope, Francis said: “This is what I want, a poor church for the poor.”

And a jet and an entourage and massive security, as he wings his way to bring that message of poverty to the masses.

I wonder how the message would be received in America’s inner cities.

The Pope’s recipe for change, if there is to be any change at all, seems to fall under the category of “income redistribution.”

Apparently, carbon taxes and cap and trade would fit the redistribution agenda.

Forget the fact that a carbon monarchy would drastically reduce available energy in the Third World. But don’t worry, poverty is good. Embrace it.

The Pope is headlining a big show in the US because he and Obama are on the same page. They both want to excoriate capitalism, while conveniently avoiding the subject of Globalist trade treaties, which are designed to expand poverty and destroy millions of jobs.

Since the Pope is willing to mention specifics, such as the horrors of air conditioning, he should be willing to address GATT, the WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA, and the TPP: the treaties by which elite Globalists wreak havoc. Until he does discuss them, and at length, his statements about poverty deserve no more attention than any politician’s.

As for his stance on immigration and the US southern border, his sympathy for destitute Catholic refugees making their way into America dovetails nicely with the goal of expanding the flock, which has been declining in this country.

If the Pope wants a poor Church, I have a suggestion. Bring in an army of expert appraisers and have them pore over every rare book, every scripture, scroll, artifact, piece of furniture, painting, sculpture, jewel, gold coin—every possession of the Vatican, including its lands and buildings—in order to see what price the whole collection might bring at the largest auction ever held on the planet.

Then sell it all. Take the cash and feed and house the poor.

At that point, I would start to take this man in the robe and the big hat seriously.

Also, I’m sure that with a little digging, I could find the names of some competent private investigation agencies and forward their names to His Holiness. He could task them with locating and hunting down every pedophile priest on or off the Church books and turning them over for secular prosecution.

That would clear up a few things, too.

Religion. Why do people who believe in God need it?

Did India Really Become Independent On August 15th, 1947?

The real violence is committed in the writing of history, the records of the legal system, the reporting of news, through the manipulation of social contracts, and the control of information
– Bryant H. McGill

This empire, unlike any other in the history of the world, has been built primarily through economic manipulation; through cheating, through fraud, through seducing people into our way of life, through the economic hit men. I was very much a part of that.
– John Perkins

India was granted a dominion status on August 15, 1947. According to Balfour Declaration of 1926 ‘dominions’ is defined as autonomous communities within the British Empire but united by a common allegiance to the Crown. So, by the definition, India was an autonomous community “within the British Empire”. So, why do we celebrate August 15th as our Independence Day?

Many people in India still believe that a Dominion status is equivalent to an absolute independent status. All those who so believe should go back to elementary school to re-learn their English. According to the Oxford dictionary, a ‘dominion’ is a country of the British Commonwealth having its own government. This same mistaken belief was also held by all Congress leaders in those days who openly proclaimed that there was no difference between dominion status and independence and accepted the dominion status in their all party conference of November 1929. This same confusion was furthered by the approval of dominion status in the Lahore Conference of 1929. But later Subhash Chandra Bose proposed that independence meant complete dissolution of any relationship with the British; for this he was labeled a terrorist and foreign agent. Only on January 26th 1950 when India became a republic was the word Dominion replaced by Republic.

When Britain gave independence to America 170 years before India, the resolution relating to declaring independence read “the united colonies of America are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved”. Now look at the wording in the Indian Independence Act which was accepted by the British Parliament on July 18th 1947; “to make provision for the setting up in India oftwo independent dominions, to substitute other provisions of the government of India Act 1945 which apply outside those dominions and to provide for other matters consequential on or connected with the setting up of those dominions.”

There are two things very clear from the above statement:

The British did not want our allegiance to be completely dissolved from Great Britain and;

The British wanted to replace some provisions of the dominion status of India and Pakistan which were applicable to other dominion of British Crown, namely Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa.

India was called “Dominion of India” from 1947 to 1950. We never taught in our history books that India had an official King in George VI post independence and this type of government system that could be called ‘constitutional monarchy’.

The monarchy of India was a system in which a hereditary monarch was the sovereign of India from 1947 to 1950. India shared the same person as it’s sovereign as the United Kingdom and the other Dominions in the British Commonwealth of Nations. The monarch’s constitutional roles were mostly carried out by the governor-general. The royal succession was governed by the ‘Act of Settlement 1701’.

In 1948 Mountbatten left his position by appointing C. Rajagopalachari. Even till 1950, then Prime Minister of India was only the fourth in command. By January 26th, 1950 we wrote our own Constitution, and abolished the monarchy. So, effectively India’s Independence Day was January 26, 1950, and not August 15, 1947.

In the memoirs Reminiscences of the Nehru Age, Nehru’s aide M. O. Mathai wrote that even after India became independent, Prime Minister Nehru had to seek permissions from King George for all “humble duties of submission” by addressing himself in third person. One such letter, as Mathai recollected, had the following content:

“Jawaharlal Nehru presents his humble duty to Your Majesty and has the honour to submit, for Your Majesty’s approval the proposal of Your Majesty’s, Ministers in the Dominion of India that Sri Rajagopalachari, Governor of West Bengal, be appointed to be the Governor General of India on the demission of that Office by His Excellency Rear Admiral the Earl Mountbatten of Burma…”.

He had to affirm allegiance to King George VI, Emperor of India and also to affirm that he would well and truly serve “Our Sovereign”. Nehru was suddenly confronted with these. He had no choice. He suppressed his embarrassment and extreme annoyance and went through the affirmation of allegiance and affirmation of office which read as follows:

Form of Affirmation of Allegiance

I, Jawaharlal Nehru, do solemnly affirm that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to His Majesty, KING GEORGE THE SIXTH, Emperor of India, His Heirs, and Successors, according to law.

Form of Affirmation of Office

I, Jawaharlal Nehru, do solemnly affirm that I will well and truly serve our Sovereign, KING GEORGE THE SIXTH, Emperor of India, in the Office of Member of the Governor General’s Executive Council, and that I will do right to all manner of people after the laws and usages of India without fear or favor of affection or ill-will.

What about our Army, Navy and Air Force leadership?

For any colonial nation, if independence means “not dependent” or not having to depend on anyone or anything else, it also means being strong and being able to survive alone. So, for India it means to see-off even the last British administrator from its land. We than would have to wait further until the late 1958 to celebrate ‘Independence’ because even after August 15th 1947, British officers Sirs Rob Lockhart and Roy Bucher were still heading the Indian Army and they left their positions in 1947 and 1949 respectively and World War veterans Sirs Edward Parry, Charles Pizey and Stephen Carlill were heading the Indian Navy until 1951, 1955, and 1958 respectively.

At the same time World War veterans Sirs Ronald Ivelaw-Chapman and Gerald Gibbs were heading our Air Force until 1951 and 1954 respectively. It was only in 1954 that we could see one of our own citizens, Subroto Mukherjee, at the helm of the air force affairs. Mukherjee himself was a war veteran and a graduate from the prestigious Royal Air Force College, Cranwell. But history has it that he told Mountbatten that he would need five to seven years time to take up the charge of the Air Force and also the navy took a very long time of eleven years for the transition of control to an Indian.

But then, how come the Army transition was over in just two years after our independence and that in the Navy took seven long years? Even Mukherjee, a winner of several decorations and awards from the mighty Queen, needed those seven years to rise to that level? He also had to undergo a course at the Imperial Defence College, London to shape himself up for the top post? After India saw ruthless rule of British for 250 years it would be foolish to think that they were under any sort of obligation to train us to the required level and ensure a smooth handshake.

What about Republic?

India became “Republic within Commonwealth on 1950”; now what is republic? Republic simply means ‘rule of law’ but note the word ‘within’; one cannot be free if they are ‘within’ other’s jurisdiction no matter how many constitutions we write.

On 2nd September 1953, Dr. Ambedkar clarified in his speech in the Rajya Sabha (Parliament) that

“People always keep saying to me: ‘Oh, you are the maker of the Constitution.’ My answer is I was a hack. What I was asked to do, I did much against my will.

My friends tell me that I have made the Constitution. But I am quite prepared to say that I shall be the first person to burn it out. I do not want it. It does not suit anybody….”

During the Second World War the Allies accepted a San Francisco Peace Treaty on September 8, 1951 which came into existence on April 28, 1952. That same day on April 28th, Independent India also issued a statement stating that the war between India and Japan has ended and we signed the separate ‘peace treaty’ called Treaty of Peace Between Japan and India on June 9, 1952 restoring relations between the two nations. What this signifies is that from September 1945 when Japan surrendered or from 15th August 1947 when we became Independent until June 9, 1952 India was officially in a state of war with Japan. What was the need for India to go to war with Japan after independence? Was the decision to declare war with Japan undertaken by independent India or was India fighting a proxy war? In that case who was in control of India’s foreign policy even after independence? What is the implication of such a thing? It should be kept in mind that Subhash Bose during the same period had made an alliance with Japan to eject the British from India and achieve complete freedom. Is this the reason why Bose was labeled a terrorist?

India’s response to these events suggests that the leadership, and the populace at large, is as ignorant about the international equations as they were during the colonization of India. We have completely failed to understand the players in this game, their motives, their powers and their means. Further few Indians even today care to ask themselves questions that would lead them in the direction of these answers. While India has produced scientists and engineers of very high caliber, its failure to produce social scientists of even mediocre capability in understanding the political equations is surprising. Although our society has focused its efforts in producing a vast talent base of students trained to think with the precision of modern mathematics, it has abysmally failed to apply this precise thought to the social sciences. This has resulted in an utter failure to answer even the most elementary of questions in international politics. One cannot help but surmise that these engineers and scientists were perhaps encouraged to serve unseen masters who deliberately kept the society in dark about the social sciences themselves.

It is natural for masters to keep their slave subjects from knowing too much about them. Even in the start of this new millennium few in Asia, and fewer in India in particular, have heard about the subject of Geopolitics. With most of the major players centered around Europe and the Middle East, it is no surprise that the Indians were kept ignorant about the deeper forces that drove the world for the past twenty centuries. In the best of cases, we have viewed these awful events with ignorance and what is worse, with a self-destructive arrogance. More often than not, we have chosen to bury our heads in the sand and refuse to view them at all.

At the end of the day the brutal truth is ‘August 15th’ is not a day of celebration or a day of distributing chocolates or not even a day to feel that ‘We are free’. The fact is it is a day to feel sorrow and shame on ourselves to celebrate as Independence Day a major event that triggered the riots which preceded the partition in the Punjab region that killed between 200,000 and 500,000 people in retributive genocide between the religions due to the evil policy of divide and rule by British. UNHCR estimates 14 million Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims were displaced during the partition; it was the largest mass migration in human history.

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet,
as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? 
Forbid it, Almighty God!
I know not what course others may take;
but as for me, give me liberty (Swaraj) or give me death!”
– Patrick Henry, 1775, fire brand Patriot urging his fellow Virginians to fight against East India Company’s British oppression in todays USA.

Going Global: 40 States Interested in Free Trade Zone With Eurasian Union

Over 40 countries and entities, including China, Thailand, Indonesia and Cambodia are interested in signing a free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), Russian Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukaev said Monday.

KUALA LUMPUR (Sputnik) – The Eurasian Economic Union, which comprises Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia, is an international organization, which aims to achieve the free flow of goods and services between its member countries.

Vietnam signed a free trade deal with the bloc in May. India and Egypt are among other nations negotiating similar agreements.

“Global cooperation is an important trend now. Over 40 countries and international organizations are willing to establish a free trade zone with the EEU,” Ulyukaev stated at an East Asia Summit (EAS) in the Malaysian capital.

The minister added that the EAS countries' total GDP had eached $60.5 billion in 2014, equal to 55.8 percent of the world’s GDP.

According to Ulyukaev, Russia is interested in establishing new mechanisms for cooperation between the countries of the EAS and EEU. In his view, active participation in the process will lead to the strengthening of regional ties, boosting the region’s investment attractiveness and providing Russian companies with new opportunities and access to new markets.

MNCs Operated Destruction Of India

Two-and-a-half years after the completion of a new $17 million terminal building, the airport in Jaisalmer, a small and remote desert city in Rajasthan, stands empty. As reported not a single passenger has passed through the gates of an airport big enough to handle more than 300,000 travellers a year, with parking bays for three 180-seater narrow-body jets.

In what has been termed as the Ghost Terminals of India, “India has spent more than $50 million since 2009 on eight airports that do not receive scheduled flights. Across India, more than half of the 100-odd domestic-only airports operated by AAI have not seen a scheduled flight this year.”

However similar trends could be noticed in other sectors as well.

Nearly 60% or 160 out of the overall 255 malls currently operational in top seven Indian cities are facing an uncertain future as customers have deserted them for various reasons, as reported by DNA.

“Across India, many of the nation’s more than 300 malls have been struggling with weak sales and high vacancy rates. Developers over the last decade built more than 250 shopping centers, according to JLL’s Indian arm, to tap into India’s burgeoning consumer culture. But while some analysts had estimated India’s middle class would swell to more than 400 million people, it turns out that only a sliver of them—less than 10 million by McKinsey & Co.’s estimates—have enough disposable income to make them steady mall goers” reports the Wall Street Journal.

At the same time if you happen to travel through the suburbs of the Indian capital, Delhi, you will see miles and miles of built homes with nobody living in them. Even as the country faces a shortage of 19 million houses, around 10.2 million completed units are lying vacant, says property consultant CBRE.

“According to the Ministry of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation (MoHUPA), Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Bihar, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Gujarat constitute about 76 per cent of this urban housing shortage.”

Government of India collects many statistics every year on everything and anything except on the displaced people from the resource rich forests or river banks or fertile lands. None in India in government circles have any figure for the number of people that have been or are being displaced by big developmental projects or sacrificed on the altar of Developmental Mantra by every national government.

Where do these displaced people go?

Eventually they end up in slums of urban centers on government lands or on disputed lands. They become vote bank for urban political parties. In most cases once the land title is allotted these slum dwellers are uprooted from these slums so that big corporation can build shopping malls or apartment complexes for the development of the nation.

Various courts in India including the Supreme Court are either silent on this human tragedy of forcible displacement or in rarest cases sided with the government and big MNCs in pursuing their agendas. In many cases even if there were no environmental clearances for such huge ecology damaging projects like Tehri Dam or Tata and POSOCO or Vedanta, still they went ahead grabbing the lands of poor and destroying the ecology for MNC interests.

It would appear as though these problems are just the result of bad management, planning and a general lack of oversight and holistic perspective. However true that maybe it is just the partial truth. Upon a closer observation infact one would find that these problems are not the result of mis-management, instead they are the results of a very systematic and strategically charted out policies in motion through a very long time.

Most of these above mentioned displaced people are from virgin forests from where coal to diamonds, rare earth metals to gold could be hauled out at throw away prices, which would be used to make high technology cutting edge products again to be sold to India at 10,000 times more profit than the actual cost of the materials/products hauled out.

MNCs want these tribal Indians to go away from their resource rich lands sometime like yesterday. But they are afraid just like the East India Company, that such evacuation (read rehabilitation) may create revolt among people. To avoid such inconvenience MNCs are now using the very democratically elected governments to do the eviction of population in the guise of protection of wildlife and sustainable development.

A massive such eviction is taking place in the State of Andhra Pradesh from the virgin forests of Nallamala range for the exclusive benefits of De Beers, a diamond mining corporation that wants the kimberlite or diamonds from the forest. But that is not the only thing De Beers is after. What De Beers is after is the buried wealth of Vijayanagara Empire to be hauled permanently into western fold.

The efforts of De Beers started at least 13 years ago when it was told to us that “they realized the massive diamond, gold and granite deposits in Mehaboob Nagar and Kurnool districts of Andhra Pradesh”. These deposits are spread under the thick jungles of Nallamala Forests. These forests needed to be cleared first for the diamond mining or De Beers should have to resort to the latest technology called horizontal drilling under the forests.

Now here comes the kicker. East India Companies when they ruled India tried to locate these kimberlite mines and declared that they were all exhausted and thus shifted their focus to South Africa. In South Africa they found diamonds and set up African gold and diamond mining companies under the ruthless exploitative ownership of Openheimers, who were one of the owners of the East India Companies. It is these Nallamala diamond mines that were the source of the riches of all the kingdoms of India including the Vijayanagara Kingdom, which at its height sold diamonds on streets not in carats but in kilograms. This fact was recorded by Portuguese, Russian, French and other chroniclers who had business and diplomatic ties with Vijayanagara kingdom. Every crown jewel of every European kingdom in those days came from India and from these mines along the banks of Krishna or Tungabhadra rivers.

For a detailed understanding kindly read our research report The Hunt for the Treasures of Vijayanagara Empire.

In the year 1600 East India Company was formed and given exclusive right to trade with India and South East Asia by the British Monarchy under the concept of Free Trade and Globalization. It was also given the right to civilize India. In the year 1965 the Club of Rome (top industrial houses-real owners of EICs or MNCs) divided the world in 10 economic segments and gave unbridled authority to ruthlessly exploit Segment 9 (India belongs to this segment 9), a group of mineral (diamond, gold, uranium, life saving medicinal plants, organic food and drinking water) oil and natural gas rich South East Asian nations consisting one third of the population of the world- under liberalization (liberalize domestic economy to globalize its owners) and privatization (privatize so that Free Trade can further control domestic economy via global owners) to a group of MNCs.

Commenting on the mercantile political economy, Mayer Rothschild (one of the owners of the East India Company) once made a historic comment which is resoundingly true even after centuries – “give me the control of the currency of any nation and I care not who rules it…”

Liberalization and Privatization were the tools of the mercantile world in the long history of 400 year struggle to dominate resource rich Asia in general and India in particular. Since the beginning of liberalization of Indian economy for the supposed ‘development’ of India many Indians within the border of India became second-class citizens or non-citizens in their own native lands, country and cultural settings. They became the Helots of India, a derogatory term used by the Romans to indicate non-Romans in their country, intermediate in status between slaves and citizens. However still for whose sake is this development, is still not yet answered as it is tacitly understood that it is for the western countries to continue their geopolitical fight with their yester year cold war adversaries.

It wouldn’t be farfetched to say that in the name of development India is now run only for the profit maximization of giant western Multinational Corporations (MNCs) which are in their latest avatar from the erstwhile East India Companies (EICs). In fact all the owners of current MNCs are the grand children of the previous East India Companies, in lineage, spirit, methods, tactics and business policies (read Business Intelligence).

For a detailed study of the origin of these EICs, their motives and the motives of MNCs along with the commodities EICs dealt with and MNCs plan to deal with or are already dealing with; along with the elusive owners of these MNCs tracking them back to their East India Company roots kindly refer to our East India Company Series – Part I Noble Motives.

How Indian Constitution and Democracy were Hijacked

We the People. No. Its We the Politicians

The Constitution of India was introduced on and became operational on 26 January 1950. Did those who framed the Constitution keep one face as members of the Constituent Assembly and apart from the Constituent Assembly, keep another face as members of the Provisional Parliament? This is a question, but it is hard to believe that this happened. But when the events are viewed in sequence then it seems that it certainly did happen. The Constituent Assembly was a chair of justice, sitting on which the members of the Constituent Assembly made a decision in accordance with justice. But such a matter of regret that when those very members began working as Members of the Provisional Parliament it can be said without hesitation that they committed a huge fraud and deception on the country. In fact, these same two faces can be seen between the making of our Constitution by the Constituent Assembly and the working of the Provisional Parliament through the Constituent Assembly.

There was a serious debate on the future of the country in the Constituent Assembly. During the debate, running of the country by a political party was not envisaged anywhere. The Freedom Movement had been victorious and the Independence of India had almost been decided upon. The Constituent Assembly had been formed in 1946, before India’s Independence. The members of the Constituent Assembly framed the Constitution in a just and dignified manner and showed no dereliction in envisioning India as an ideal democratic country. According to the Constitution this country will function with the support of elected representatives of the people. The elected representatives of the people would go to the Lok Sabha and there, going by the majority or a unanimous consensus, they will choose/form a Government and a representative of that Government will become the Prime Minister. Political parties were present in those days, but the words ‘political party’ are not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution because a Republic has been envisaged in the Constitution. The world’s oldest Republic is considered to be the Lichchavi Republic. A study of that Republic shows that in a Republic, in the House that runs the Government there is never one ruling party or an opposition party. All the people sit together and on the basis of merits or demerits they run the State. It was on the basis of this that the framers of the Constitution did not use the words ‘political party’ in the Constitution and the Constituent Assembly did not function on a party basis. It functioned as the Constituent Assembly of an ideal Republic.

Then what happened and how did the words ‘political party’ appear inside Parliament? It happened that when making the Constitution the members of the Constituent Assembly worked like judges and made a Constitution which was actually going to give India a democracy. When the Constitution got made and was passed by the Provisional Parliament in 1950, then the ears of the politicians pricked up and they saw politics and began thinking that they had made a big mistake. If the Constitution had not been passed on 26 January 1950, perhaps its pages would have changed, but the politicians sitting on the chair of justice did indeed behave like judges and never thought about those things which could have been thought about to keep politics in their grasp forever.

The Provisional Parliament accepted the Constitution in 1950, because till 1952 the Constituent Assembly was handling both the responsibilities. First it made the Constitution and then it accepted it and made minor laws. When the Election Commission was made ( the Election Commission was envisaged in the Constitution), then suddenly it struck the politicians that the parties too had to be brought into Parliament. If representatives of the people came to Parliament in accordance with the Constitution, then the existence of parties in the Parliament would end, and so with the support of the Election Commission, they set up the party system against democracy and made it a law. In fact, they believed that only parties could run the country and therefore, they passed the Representation of the People Act in 1951. The Representation of the People Act was also passed by the Provisional Parliament. In fact, it was under this that political parties found a way to participate in the elections and put up their candidates. On the basis of this, the Election Commission conducted the General Elections of 1952, in which the Congress got about 348 seats and the remaining 100 seats were divided amongst other parties big and small.

Now the question arises : whose mind was behind holding the fortunes of India in a closed fist and making democracy captive in the hands of political parties? At that time all the people were present who fought and even endured punishment during the Freedom Movement. Amongst these were some on whom Gandhiji had a lot of trust and faith. All these people were still living when People’s Representation became a law in 1951 — Representation of the People Act 1951. Only one person was not amongst us at that time Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi – the leader of the Independence Movement. Which leader could have got it into his mind to surreptitiously get political parties into the Lok Sabha, Vidhan Sabhas and the politics of India through a back door, a hidden door? It could have been any of the leaders. Rajendra Prasadji was the President; Jawaharlal Nehru was the Prime Minister and Sardar Patel was in his Cabinet. Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, C. Rajagopalachari, Maulana Azad and Govind Ballabh Pant were still alive. All these people sat together and through the Election Commission got the political parties back door or hidden door entry into the Lok Sabha. If an attempt was made, who tried to go against the interests of the people of India and the interests of the Constitution will perhaps remain in the womb of history. Who was responsible for this — one, or all these leaders were responsible?

In fact, the result of this was very dangerous. The time of the first Lok Sabha passed and from the time of the second Lok Sabha the erosion of democracy began to take place. As a result corruption began gradually entering into the country’s politics and for the first time, during the second Lok Sabha, some big scandals came to the forefront. Today, if we search for the origin and roots of corruption, they can be traced to the back door or hidden door entry of the political party system. A point of interest: if any law is not connected with the Constitution, the Supreme Court cancels/rejects it and a voice is raised against it. But against this Act (Public Representative Act 1951), no voice was raised, though it does not match with the spirit of the Constitution on any account. This was so because if the political parties had wanted to enter Parliament, it could have been done by a Constitutional Amendment. But the leaders at that time feared that if they immediately brought in a Constitutional Amendment, the people of the country will doubt their honesty and that is why this matter continued till 1985. For the first time in 1985, the words ‘political party’ were used in a Constitutional Amendment when the Anti Defection Bill came to Parliament. How decisions were to be made in political parties, how someone could be expelled from a Parliamentary party, how he/she will be dismissed, how he/she will lose membership, etc. were linked to the Constitution for the first time in 1985.

Now the question arises: if corruption, price rise and unemployment are rooted in the party system, then should this party system not be reconsidered? The second question : if this party system is against the basic spirit of the basics of the Constitution, should the people of the country not think about it? The third question : should the Supreme Court not ask the Election Commission whether at the time this law was made, it was in accordance with the Constitution at that time, and therefore correct?

We talk of the rule of the Constitution in the country, every person affirms that there is rule of the Constitution and that laws are made according to the Constitution. But the truth is that this law has snatched away from the people the opportunity of participating in a democracy directly. In fact, today, the political parties don’t want to think that the common people can have any part or share in ruling! The second result of this line of thought was that all the democratic or constitutional institutions in the country gradually started to die or come to an end or Governments began trying to get them in the grip of their tentacles. The map of Parliament became one in which political parties began maneuvering it and virtually making it dance according to their interests. The common people began viewing the drama within Parliament with eyes of suspicion because they could not understand what was happening and this situation gradually created inside people a sense of belief or disbelief in democracy.

Questions related to our Constitution began being raised in the country whereas actually questions should have been raised about political parties and the politicians incorrect interpretation of the Constitution. The lives of people began getting more and more difficult with each passing year, corruption began to increase, crime and offences began to increase, unemployment began to increase, and the problems of farmers and labourers also began to increase. The truth is that instead of standing in favour of the poor, the entire economy began to be seen as standing against the poor. And the Government, which had been envisioned as a welfare state, without telling some truths, in a way changed the Constitution itself. The peak of the party system that was ‘enforced’ in 1950 and 1952 became visible in 1991. In 1992, then Prime Minister Narasimha Rao and his Finance Minister Manmohan Singh kept a framework before the country – that they wanted to bring a new stream of prosperity and development in the country and wanted to put an end to the Inspector Raj. In fact, the control of the Government had gradually increased and people had got fed up of the Inspector Raj. In this period, instead of the public welfare state outlined by the Constitution, the then Prime Minister and his Finance Minister envisioned a market based state and from 1992 till today the character of the Government has completely changed.

Nobody questioned how, without taking the people into confidence, and without bring a Constitutional Amendment, Government was changed from a public welfare state Government to a market-based and profit-based Government. In other words, the country’s Constitution had been changed without taking the opinion or views of the people of the country! In such a situation, the book of the Constitution gradually became just an object for gracing book shelves. Whatever had been written in the Constitution began to come to an end one by one and that is why people in the country today do not have much respect for the Constitution. There are forces too in the country, chief among which are the Naxalites, which say that this Constitution stands against the poor. In fact, the Constitution which should have stood only in favour of the poor in the country – after 1992 the people who went to Parliament left no stone unturned to ensure that the Constitution stood against the poor. Now the market based system says that if you want to walk on the road, give toll tax, whereas the Constitution says that the Government should provide basic facilities. The Constitution says that the people have civil rights, fundamental rights, and which work the Government has to do — a clear and specific explanation and interpretation has been given. For a public welfare state, there is a model/ideal description –welfare state — in our Constitution and its interpretation is also given, but Governments have decided that if you want to get treatment, go to expensive hospitals, and if you want to get education, go to expensive schools. The Government has not pushed ahead with matters related to education or with health. Increase in prices have been openly handed over to the markets, the bazaars. Unemployment is rising in leaps and bounds, agro-based industries are closing down, basic cultivation is not being able to recover its cost, farmers trapped in debt are continuously committing suicide. But because the Government has adopted the market-based path, it makes no difference to it now how many people in this country are dying due to malnutrition, how many are dying because of non-availability of treatment, and how many are dying caught in the web of debt. What is really surprising is that the Government is not bothered or concerned at all about why employment is not being created.

As a result, where in 1992 there were 40 districts and in 2004 there were 70 districts affected by Naxalism, today there are 272 District directly impacted by Naxalism. This Government working and walking in unconstitutional ways has brought the country to a pass where people have started to think that the Government pays no heed to peaceful ‘dharnas’, therefore it is useless to hold demonstrations. Yes, the thought of taking violent steps has certainly now rapidly come into people’s minds. In many States, as rail tracks are blocked by the people for 10 days at a stretch, 15 days at a stretch, the Government responds promptly to their demands. If in Orissa, the IAS District Magistrate is kidnapped by Naxalites, their demands are met within 72 hours by the Government. Overall, the result of the mistake made in 1952 has been that the the entire Lok Sabha is seen standing far away from the problems of the people. In fact, such laws are mostly being made which do not remove the problems or suffering of the people, but instead continuously help the ruling class and the corporate class which shakes hands with it. Not a single law is being made that will bring down inflation, that is against corruption and unemployment and can provide some faith to the people.

Now scams and scandals don’t take place in lakhs, not even in crores, because the Bofors scandal, which took away the Government from Rajiv Gandhi’s hands, was of 64 crores, but after that till now, 5000 crores, 10,000 crores, 15,000 crores and 20,000 crores, one lakh crore, one lakh 76,000 crores, and 26 lakh crore scams and scandals have come before us. In all these scandals, without any bias or distinction, people from both the ruling party and the Opposition seem to be involved. Not only this, a scam in MGREGS, a scam in the loan waiver scheme for farmers, a scam in the package sent to Vidarbha for farmers suicides, food and drug scam, in other words everywhere there seems to be a flood of scams.

If there had been representatives of the people in the Lok Sabha in accordance with the Constitution, and representative of the parties had not been there, all the above scams would not have happened. Because, if a person had been involved in a scam, the people from his constituency, his friends, his colleagues in Parliament would have put moral pressure on him and the corruption would have stopped there. But since the parties are now ruling, an MP is saved by saying ‘the High Command has handled this’. Actually, it is also a truth and a fact that the money in such big scams also goes to the top, whether the Government is of this party or of that party. The question is being raised prominently in this country whether people should stand up against the deception or cheating done with the Constitution, or whether the situation should be accepted in its current form? The second question is whether this country’s Supreme Court will take the initiative on such a big question and set up a constitutional bench or not? It seems to me that the Supreme Court will not set up a constitutional bench because the interest of many of the people in the Supreme Court can be seen connected with those of the ruling parties. Perhaps this is why within two days of retiring from the Supreme Court, a judge gets some posting or the other. The people of India place a lot of faith on the Supreme Court, that is why, if this question gets louder and picks up momentum, it should be hoped that the Supreme Court will set up a constitutional bench and will decide too how between 1947 and 1951 such a big game was played with the destiny of the people of the country and with the Constitution of the country? And alongside at the same time it will also decide how right all the things that are going on today are in accordance with the Constitution.

If the word ‘party’ has been added in 1985, were all the things which happened before that incorrect, or is the Constitutional Amendment made in 1985 contrary in a way to the spirit of the Constitution? These questions are as much political as they are legal and constitutional. There are two paths before the people of India. The first : let what is going on be allowed to continue and price rise, corruption and unemployment be allowed to increase the way they are. The second : the people of India stand up against the party system, put up people from their own midst in the elections and vote for them. If the public, instead of voting for parties will vote for candidates from amongst the common people, a different picture will come before the country and that picture will at least be a much better picture than can be seen today because in it, the colours of corruption, price rise and employment will be very dim.

And here is what former UK prime minister Gordon Brown wrote in December 2013:

"The economist David Miles, who sits on the monetary policy committee of the Bank of England, may exaggerate when he forecasts financial crises every seven years, but most of the problems that caused the 2008 crisis - excessive borrowing, shadow banking and reckless lending - have not gone away. 

"Too-big-to-fail banks have not shrunk; they’ve grown bigger. 

"Huge bonuses that encourage reckless risk-taking by bankers remain the norm. 

"Meanwhile, shadow banking - investment and lending services by financial institutions that act like banks, but with less supervision - has expanded in value to $71 trillion, from $59 trillion in 2008. 

"Europe’s leaders aren’t the only ones with these blind spots. 

"Emerging-market economies in Asia and Latin America have seen a 20 percent growth in their shadow-banking sectors. 

"After 2009, Asian banks expanded their balance sheets three times faster than the largest global financial institutions, while adding only half as much capital.

In the patterns of borrowing today, we can already detect parallels with the pre-crisis credit boom. We’re seeing the same over-reliance on short-term capital markets that ultimately brought down Northern Rock, Iceland’s banks and Lehman Brothers...

Thailand’s financial institutions, for example, appear overdependent on short-term foreign loans; and in India, where 10 percent of bank loans have gone bad or need restructuring, banks will need $19 billion in new capital by 2018.

"In short, precisely what world leaders sought to avoid - a global financial free-for-all, enabled by ad hoc, unilateral actions - is what has happened. 

"Political expediency, a failure to think and act globally, and a lack of courage to take on vested interests are pushing us inexorably toward the next crash."
