COAL BLOCKS ALLOTMENT BY UPA GOVERNMENT


‘ZERO LOSS’

I find Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram’s defence of coal blocks allocation that no loss has been incurred because the coal is still unexploited really amusing. The licences now belong to the allottees, not the government. Does Mr. Chidambaram plan to withdraw the licences awarded under the non-competitive bidding policy, as was done in the 2G case by the Supreme Court, and allocate them through competitive bidding? That is the only way he can convince the nation of his presumptive ‘zero loss’ theory.

T. Satheesh Kumar,
Hyderabad

By coming out with the ‘zero loss’ theory, Mr. Chidambaram has reminded us of a great philosophy propounded by our sages. Nothing given by Mother Earth can be a loss. Thus rainwater draining into the sea is not a waste. It comes back to us as rain. Coal is also a gift of nature. As our learned Finance Minister has pointed out, it all depends on the colour of the glass through which we see things.

Can I pay zero tax on my income, saying the money is still in India and so the government faces no loss of income?

C.P. Anandasubramanian,
Chennai

The BJP should accept the challenge thrown by AICC spokesperson P.C. Chacko to bring a no-confidence motion against the UPA government, instead of disrupting Parliament on the coal blocks allocation issue. That would be a democratic way of dealing with the government. The ugly scenes in Parliament are being seen by not only the people of the largest functioning democracy but also those in the rest of the world. If there is any amendment that the Constitution needs, it should be to ensure that the MPs allow the business in Parliament to be conducted peacefully.

COALGATE ROCKS UPA GOVERNMENT


COALGATE

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR, THE HINDU, DATED 25-08-2012

In adopting a position that it will not allow Parliament to function till the Prime Minister resigns in the wake of the CAG report on coal blocks allocation, the BJP is being unfair. Whatever happened to the “Parliament is supreme” theory? Its leaders are not even interested in a meaningful debate in the House. By refusing to let the Prime Minister clarify the issue, the principal Opposition party either wants to help the government get out of the crisis or it has nothing substantial to say.

Amit Bhandari,
New Delhi

The huge loss of Rs 1.86 lakh crore caused to the exchequer in the coal scam is another record-breaking amount, after the loss of Rs 1.76 lakh crore caused in the 2G spectrum scam. But the BJP’s demand is not fair either. Its unwillingness to discuss the issue in Parliament shows it is not kosher on the issue. The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha have been disrupted for four days. This is against people’s interest. One wonders why the BJP develops cold feet when it comes to discussing a scam in Parliament.

S. Parvathy Madhavi,
Mavelikara

The manner in which our MPs have handled the proceedings in both Houses is a matter of shame. It is true that in a democratic system, the Opposition has a major role to play and when a huge scam is unravelled, it is bound to demand that the government resign. But the Opposition MPs who are disrupting the proceedings are also causing a huge loss to the exchequer.

Let the so-called honest Prime Minister face the House which represents the people.

Nilotpal Rai,
Allahabad

Auction to allocate natural resources, as is being suggested by many intellectuals, is not fool-proof. I have seen how during auctions, prospective buyers form a cartel and no one bids much above the base price. After that, they hold an auction among themselves and the excess money is distributed among the bidders. So the key lies in fixing a base price that is neither too high to put bidders away nor so low that the exchequer incurs losses.

COALGATE-MANMOHAN SINGH-MAMATA BANERJEE

COALGATE AND UPA GOVERNMENT AND MAMATA BANERJEE


COALGATE’S SMEAR

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR, THE HINDU DATED 23-08-2012

The Opposition should allow Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to answer questions pertaining to the coal allocation scam, which the CAG estimates has caused a loss of Rs.1.86-lakh crore to the exchequer. It is too premature to call for Dr. Singh’s head before the due processes of questioning and seeking an explanation are completed. 
By stalling Parliament, the Opposition is denying itself the opportunity to pin down the government fairly and squarely.

Zulfikhar Akram,
Bangalore

Coming on the heels of the Commonwealth Games scam, the 2G spectrum issue, power and airport scams, “Coalgate” has clearly hobbled the UPA government, making its continuance in power untenable. The Comptroller and Auditor-General deserves a big pat on the back for bringing the scam to light. Its advice to the government to stop nitpicking and fix responsibility (Aug. 22) should be put to the test.

N.J. Ravi Chander,
Bangalore

Cartoonist Surendra has done it again (Aug.22). The Prime Minister looks stuck in and smeared with Coalgate paste. By rubbishing the CAG report and also condemning it as flouting its constitutional mandate, the UPA has exceeded its brief. There have been serious and wanton lapses on the part of the government in the allocation of coal blocks. Thus, the nation must trust the CAG when it claims that the real intent of the government auditor’s work “is to end the business of crony capitalism.” Constitutional bodies like the CAG and the CBI must only be used as watchdogs in the nation’s interests and not misused as lap-dogs of the ruling dispensation.

Col. C.V. Venugopalan (retd.),
Palakkad

It was not very long ago that a senior Union Minister said the losses in the 2G scam were notional and that there was no actual loss incurred by the government. The UPA must come out of its slumber and admit its mistakes.

Ameya Amte,
Bhopal

The political war between the BJP and Congress on “Coalgate” raises disturbing questions. The Antrix-Devas deal was done by a ministry directly under the Prime Minister. Now, the coal block allotment too has happened when the ministry was under his direct control. Dr. Singh must order an impartial probe into all scams.

N. Ramamurthy,
Chennai

It is undemocratic for any one to demand the resignation of a prime minister and the government on the strength of just one report. There are various ways of censuring the ruling government. The BJP cannot adopt a double standard on matters of national importance.

Bangalore

COAL SCAM


COAL SCAM

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR, THE HINDU DATED 22-08-2012

Now that the Comptroller and Auditor General has exposed the UPA government’s discrepancies in coal blocks allocation, the scam is engaging the attention of the media and Parliament in a big way. Spectrum has been overtaken by the coal scam. The CAG should exercise extreme caution and consider all aspects before releasing its report wit
h serious allegations.

S.N. Agrawal,
Bangalore

It is a national shame to allow business tycoons and corrupt politicians plunder our national wealth. The CAG’s report on coal blocks allocation should be taken up seriously by honest leaders to wipe out the corporate-political nexus. There should be unambiguous political unity to build a stronger nation.
