UP cops raped women, killed farmers: Rahul - Hindustan Times

UP cops raped women, killed farmers: Rahul - Hindustan Times

As per the statement of Congress leader Mr. Rahul Gandhi UP Cops raped women, killed farmers and Ash of 74 burnt bodies is being found in villages at Greater Noida at Bhatta Parsaul . This all is going because of land acquisition for Yamuna Express Way connecting Greater Noida and Agra. All the villagers know about it.
The most important question is does this police action sponsored by State Government and why no one is demanding a high level inquiry into it. Why not the retired Supreme Court Judge , Ex- Secretary Rank official and a Local Farmers representative is included in the panel to inquire about Police Atrocity.

Now the important question is why the Police always act outside legal limit whenever public stands against any point which harm their interest. Our police personnel are still acting in Pre-independence era but why they don't understand that India is a Independent country now and they should treat the citizen according to their rights and duties.

Today their is also a news in media and print section that Central Government is going to bring a Act in monsoon session of parliament regarding Land Acquisition and a State Tribunal will be made in every state. 

The big question is that why government always acquire farming land, why we (the society, government, everyone) can't use non-farming land for development. It is a known fact that our developed cities are full of pollution, creating big problems for environment and facing huge crunch of drinking water, electricity, etc. We should not forget the environmental aspect.

IF NO FARMING LAND WHAT WILL WE EAT?

IF NO DRINKING WATER WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

IF NO CLEAN AIR HOW WE WILL BREATH?

Government must act hard & fast on cleaning the environment and do the planning for development & expansion in a way so that food security of nation don't have any burns.

ABOVE ALL NO POLITICAL LEADER SHOULD ACT ONLY FOR VOTE BANK BUT FOR REAL INTEREST OF NATION.

Inflation galloped to 7 per cent for the week ended March 22, on higher prices of food, vegetables, minerals and manufactured items, even as measures to tame prices are expected to take effect only in 2-3 weeks.
Inflation growth in the previous week was 6.68 per cent and was 6.54 per cent in the corresponding week a year-ago.
On Monday, the government decided to abolish import duty  on crude form of edible oils, cut rate on refined edible oils and ban non-basmati rice exports among other measures to ease the pressure off prices.
However, Manila-based Asian Development Bank expects these measures to influence prices only by the month end.
The high rate of inflation could also prompt the Reserve Bank of India to take monetary measures, like hike in interest rate or tighten money supply through hike in CRR.
During the week, prices of fruits and vegetable, pulses, cereals, eggs, meat and fish went up, while condiments and spices were cheaper. The mineral category-index shot up by 38.2 per cent driven by 46 per cent rise in prices of iron ore.
In the manufactured items category, sunflower oil, vanaspati, butter, mustard oil, sugar and groundnut oil became expensive, while prices of ghee, coconut oil mellowed down by 1 per cent each.
At the same time, prices of steel ingots, alloy steel casting were higher. However, car chassis moved down by one per cent.
