We Don’t Really Need a Political Identification! – Shri Gulab Chand Kataria

Gulab Chand Kataria

As was the occasion of our M.L.A. Shri Gulab Chand Kataria’s birthday; Kalpit Rajak, Mujtaba RG & Yash Sharma from Team UdaipurBlog were present at the Seva Bharti Hospital for being a part of the celebration. The day was spent in a very serene and noble manner with a blood donation programme and some little happy chit-chats with the people present and party-workers. Our Special thanks to Mr. Manoj Joshi Ji for Coordinating this meet 🙂 –

UdaipurBlog: Sixty Eight years; indeed a very long journey, a broad political life.. In your words, how do you visualize it…

Gulab Ji: It has really been a long journey. Met many people during this time; who not only taught me the morals and values but also helped come up in the political arena. I have been a part of the Sangh since the starting and I feel lucky to have instilled in me the principles of sacrifice and commitment. Working for public welfare without any selfish motives is the only thing I’ve given priority to throughout my life. And that’s what I expect from the upcoming politicians. I am always overwhelmed with the love, people have given me; since 1977 when I was elected as the MLA till the present day… Nothing has really changed- neither me nor their love.

UdaipurBlog: The major population of our country is formed by the youth, and although many of them are interested in politics- nobody knows where and how to enter it…

Gulab Ji: Being a MLA or MP is not just the deal. Politics is..! Working for the welfare of people, they don’t always need a political identity to do that! Many people are doing it by their own means, in their own ways; and are recognized even more than political personalities. So it’s just a thinking that a political identification is needed to work for the people! It can be done anyhow.

UdaipurBlog: There have been many ups-n-downs on the name of BJP’s contender for the PM post for the next Lok Sabha elections. Who is your choice?

Gulab Ji: These are not healthy perceptions… We don’t need a name or face to gather support. If votes are casted; all are for the party. Even a prior declaration won’t do much at present. Yeah if there were persons like Atal Bihari Vajpayee JI yet with us then it could have mattered; for such name really had a strong public appraisal and sentimental attraction. Rest, it’s just that the one who will be the most suited and worthy for handling the post; will be the appropriate face- after the elections!

UdaipurBlog: What do you say about the role of money & muscle power in our elections? Don’t you think the identity of common man is being entombed in all this!

Gulab Ji: I have worked on the principles Sangh had taught me- Tyag avum Samarpan, i.e. Sacrifice & Commitment. I have believed in working selflessly for the people but; what is happening these days is, many politicians are satirically more interested in Personal Welfare than Public Welfare! Not all of them are like such, there are noble men too; but still it is a truth.

UdaipuBlog: You have been the former Home Minister of the State; the problem we clearly see these days is the weakness of our Police Structure! What do you say about it?

Gulab Ji: Our Police System actually is not weak! It’s really very sad to see the cases of attacks and murders of cops. But you should know this that the force remains the same; just that every 5 years- the Minister changes! He is the sole commander; whatever he’ll guide them to do, it’ll be the outcome! The Minister above is definitely very influential in running the department; depends on him, how he uses the power!

UdaipurBlog: Another problem is of Corruption. The Indian democracy has seen historic happenings this year; movements, especially that of Anna Hazare has led a great impact on people. In fact, a negative wave has impulsed amongst the masses against political leaders. What do you say about it?

Gulab Ji: The movement of Anna Hazare has thoroughly shown us that the Indian public is still united. They still have great respect for the noble human values. Anna is wealthy of the same characters and this is the reason why he has become so popular in a very short time. It’s really a plight that politicians and social workers after working for a long time in public welfare don’t get that much recognition.
That’ll be all.

UdaipurBlog: Lastly Sir, any message for the people of Udaipur through UdaipurBlog?

Gulab Ji: I really thank the public of Udaipur for their support and love. And I wish that their blessings always remain with me.
Also, we all appreciate the team of UdaipurBlog for their work for our City Of Lakes. 🙂

University Politics: The President Speaks

Paramveer Singh Chundawat

Student politics is back into play in our state. And after a month of severely heated atmosphere in the game of this very powerful fundamental step of our national politics, Paramveer Singh Chundawat of Chatra Sangharsh Samiti emerged out to be the winner of the elections in the second largest University of Rajasthan – The Mohan Lal Sukhadia University covering more than 180 colleges in 7 districts of the state.

Kalpit Rajak from UdaipurBlog got a chance to talk to him for a cup of coffee and this is how the conversation went :-

Q. Everyone knows Paramveer Singh Chundawat as the President of MLSU, will you tell us some more details about you? Your family and educational background!

A. Well…  I had held the 7th merit in my B.Com from UCCMS, then completed my MBA from the Faculty of Management Studies, Udaipur. I’ve also worked as an Assistant Professor in Sabar College, Gandhinagar for a year. While right now, I’m pursuing my management Ph.D from the same university and yeah my schooling went from St. Paul’s.
Talking about family… My father, Mr. D.S. Chundawat is currently the Dean of the University College of Commerce & Management Studies (UCCMS), mother is a housewife; have an elder sister who is a Doctor and a younger brother half the way through his engineering.

Q. You have worked as an Assistant Professor, also are qualified well enough to work in management sector, then why did you chose entering politics and not any other field?

A. It’s just that I wanted to work for the welfare of students; and thankfully I’ve got the best post I required to do it.

Q. As the students’ highest representative now, what are you plans to accomplish this year?

A. Presently I’m trying to fulfill all the promises that I made in my election manifesto. My major emphasis is on campus placements and a membership in the Board of Management (BOM). A healthcare center will also be opened in the campus for providing medical facilities to the students. Moreover, the old exam pattern has also been revised, paving way for more advancement & simpler qualifying.

Q. And what about cases like peons checking exam papers…

A. Actions were taken in that incident..! Moreover now the pattern will also be totally changed, (smiles) 😀 no peon can check an OMR unless he’s an optical reader.

Q. After your tenure ends, what future are you seeing to frame yourself into?

A. I’ll stay in politics.

Q. And who is your role model?

A. Wholly and solely, Mr. Rahul Gandhi!

Q. What role do you justify of your family and the former president, Mr. Dilip Joshi in your reaching to this reputable post?

A. The teachings of my parents are worth everything I could have ever had, they taught me for the best! And Dilip Bhaiya… has been my mentor… my supreme guide, my utmost inspiration in politics…
[DIlip Joshi– the record victory maker (margin of more than 1500 votes) in the history of student elections was responsible for the self-attestation rule and in ceasing lessening of marks in rechecking]

Q. Who are your other team members in the Central Student Union?

A. Nobody has joined yet, everybody was busy..! They’ll be soon in their office.

Q. Do you want to give any guidelines to the young students who are keen to join politics?

A. There’s just one rule- “Work for student welfare.” Help them heartily & that will make your way.

Q. Recently there was the famous movement of Anna Hazare, which was supported by the youth in almost each & every part of the country. In future, if any such problem arises; will you lead the students of this University as a part of the rebel; irrespective of the party it is against!

A. I won’t say that I’m against any party but yeah I oppose corruption and will support every movement against it. We ourselves are big fans of Anna Hazare and if things went well, Udaipur will be lucky enough to see him on our land soon.

Q. These days, the issue of not following constitutional reservation in the recruitment of Professors in MLSU is also in high light! What do you say about it?

A.  That’s the reason; we are trying for membership in the BOM! By the law, student representatives aren’t allowed to interfere in these matters. I; at my post can’t do anything right now but hopefully to my knowledge, proper rules…! will be followed in the recruitments.

Q. Any message you want to give to the students through

A. I’m extremely thankful to you all for selecting me for this post.  You are my power… You all are my ultimate fuel! Thanks a lot.

Wish you good luck, have a great day…  🙂

Udaipur Speaks

The Gift Of National Service And Humanity

Police Udaipur

I hope you all must be knowing Mr. Dinesh M.N., the former Superintendent of Police of Udaipur, who got a frequent media coverage these times due to the infamous Sohrabuddin fake encounter case. The only identification that he holds at the present!

I am neither his acquaintance nor his blood relation, to have any special attachment to that individual; but it’s for those people who, for our safety; sacrifice their family lives, meet with dangers, sometimes even die, and still face criticism and differences; yes its for our Police! Take this one seriously friends, it holds a sense of a great national duty… And I hope if you understand this one well then the job is definitely half done.

If asked about Dinesh M.N., most of you will identify him as one amongst the main accused of the Sohrabbuddin fake encounter case, as in press all these days but to say, I should rather use the words, remember you… his career was an outstanding one cherished with honesty and a great command, he
was an one man army, whose eyes reflected a virtue of truth at the very first glance… Precisely saying, he was the one who changed the whole system and spoilt discipline of the city of lakes in just a couple of years, all single-handedly… His posting in Udaipur initiated two major operations, Operation Romeo and Operation Bluetooth, both of which helped a lot in reducing eve-teasing and porn films circulation.
The officer did not even cared about him before entering the dangerous field to support his force in facing the vicious tribes during the Rishabhdev Temple dispute between the Adivasis and the Jainis, and eventually got his leg broken in the struggle. The list of his works is endless, with two major criminal encounters covered under him. There was a rapid decrease in criminal activities during his tenure… With almost all kinds of typical clashes and cases being resolved in record time…

Being a man of bravery and honesty, he did a lot to improve the image of the police department. Bribery was brought to a fair lesser magnitude; obese officers were listed and made to parade daily in the police ground, one of the wall of which was erected with his selection(exactly similar to the endpoint of the pass-out parade in the Indian Police Academy, Hyderabad ). He held the major hand in the one and a half crore marriage hall project in the city police lines which was the biggest gift our cops could have ever got from any officer of his rank. Adding to all this, he was the source of influx of a great deal of
morals in them, the man to teach them what honesty was! His name was enough to create terror in the hearts of the criminals. There was never a day in his life when he bent in front of any politician… Be straight, think straight, do straight! was his only motto. Being a part of a rough profession; still somehow he kept all his humanitarian qualities alive (which can be better known by talking to his sub-ordinate).

The condition of the city at the time of his transfer was totally changed. People felt safe in their homes now, no thefts, no murders, no burglaries! Udaipur was turned into a city of total peace and crime-less
freedom. In his own honorable words, the tenure in the city was the most memorable of his career.

And the plight… Just three days after his transfer from Udaipur, the honorary officer was arrested for committing the ‘very serious crime’ of killing that great person in his uniform, who was involved in a number of murders (one being on public road during daytime), with an innumerable cases of theft and
humiliations going over him. Even if it was legally unfair, what seems wrong in killing such a vile person!
God bless these human rights!

First we say, the police is corrupt, and when we get honest officers who possess the strength to change the system, this is their consequence!

It’s more than a year now since he is in jail. And if this is the end of officers like Dinesh M.N. then who is going to protect us? Who will think of being honest after joining this already defamed department? Who is going to improve our state? A big question! There are just two ways out, either sit silently like impotents and simply see all what is happening; or stand up and oppose all this, join the forces and show these people that if they will stop one Dinesh M.N., there are ten more to come… It’s time to transform guys, and no one other than us has to do that!!!

God bless this Democracy!
