ANY CONCERN FOR COMMON MAN ?SALARY HIKE TO MP/MLA; 6th PAY & NOW 7TH PAY COMMISSION/ 8.75%PF INTEREST-DA HIKE/ TO BUREAUCRATS

"GOVT PLAYS BAD GUY,PAYS BABUS & SELF MORE & MORE;IGNORES AAM AADMI "

THE INFLATION HAS GONE THROUGH ROOFS.ITS INCREASINGLY BECOMING IMPOSSIBLE FOR MIDDLE CLASS,LOWER MIDDLE CLASS & POOR/BPL CITIZENS FOR BOTH ENDS TO MEET & survive

ON THIS BACKDROP: THE RACE IS GOING ON AMONGST ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND BUREAUCRATS TO GRAB TO THEIR ADVANTAGE MAXIMUM WHAT THEY CAN.THEY ARE IN POWER;THEY ARE IN AUTHORITY;THEY ARE ORGANISED; THEY ARE IN A POSITION TO INFLUENCE POLICY; THEY CAN INFLUENCE DECISIONS.THEY ARE DOING IT TO THEIR SOLE ADVANTAGE,IGNORING THE BASIC RIGHT TO LIVE/ RIGHT TO SURVIVE OF ALMOST MORE THAN HALF OF THE COUNTRY'S POPULATION.

MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENTS GET THEIR SALARIES-PERKS HIKED MANIFOLD FOR NO JUSTIFICATION/PERFORMANCE/NECESSITY.MLA-MLC ALREADY LINED UP IN THE RACE . NO WONDER THE TREND PERCOLATES DOWN THE LINE TO CORPORATORS,CITY COUNCELLORS.TALUKA,GRAM PANCHAYATS.

THE PAY COMMISSIONS MANNED & INFLUENCED BY BUREAUCRATS HAS PROVED TO BE GREAT BURDEN ON THE NATION.

6TH PAY ADDED LAKHS OF CRORES BURDEN ON THE EXCHEQUER.

AGAIN THERE IS DA HIKE;AS IF INFLATION ONLY HURTS BABUS.; IN FACT THEY ARE THE MAJOR CAUSE OF INFLATION ALONG WITH POLITICIANS.

PF INTEREST RATE IS HIKED TO 8.75%;

PPF(PUBLIC PROVIDENT FUND) IS STARTED FOR CITIZENS AND WORKS FOR THE SAME OBJECTIVE AS THOSE OF PF/EPF ; THEN WHY PPF INTEREST RATE IS RETAINED LOWER THAN PF/EPF.

AND ALSO PPF INTEREST HIKE WILL FURTHER ENCOURAGE SAVINGS, IN TURN LESS MONEY IN CIRCULATION,CONSEQUENTIALLY MAY HELP CHECK INFLATION.

WHY PPF IGNORED ?

ANSWER IS SIMPLE: CITIZENS AT LARGE HAVE NO SAY IN POLICY/DECISION, WHERE AS PF/EPF INTEREST HIKE WILL BENEFIT ONLY ORGANISED EMPLOYEES:PEON TO CHIEF/CABINET SECRETARY.

COMMON MAN IS REMEMBERED ONLY FOR ELECTIONS/ MANIFESTOS  FOR MERELY FLOATING POPULAR SCHEMES-PROVIDING HUGE FUNDS  AND THEN CONVENIENTLY / INTENTIONALLY AAM ADMI FORGOTTEN .FORMER PRIME MINISTER AND PLANNING COMMISSION DY CHAIRMAN HAVE MADE PUBLIC STATEMENTS THAT ONLY 15% TO 10% OF THE PLAN-SCHEME FUNDS REACHES TO ACTUAL-GENUINE BENEFICIARIES.

FOR THE PEOPLE,BY THE PEOPLE OF THE PEOPLE IS ONLY IN THE CONSTITUTION BOOK ; IN REALITY IT IS FOR-BY-OF LEADRES & BUREAUCRACY AND WHOEVER JOINS IN THEIR CONSPIRACY AGAINST COMMON CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT NATION
: INDIA.

Alandi Road BRT safety audit by citizens' groups SPTM and PMPML Pravasi Manch finds significant flaws


13th January, 2014

The BRT infrastructure created by Pune Municipal Corporation on Alandi Road for BRT
has been found to have significant issues in a safety audit jointly conducted by the
citizens's groups Save Pune Traffic Movement (SPTM) and PMPML Pravasi Manch. Some
of the main issues are related to passenger and pedestrian safety. The bus boarding
infrastructure is hampered by missing or stuck rollers on the boarding platform, mismatch
between the bus floor and the platform floor, lack of automatic doors on the bus stations
and lack of indication for the bus driver to align the bus doors with the platform doors. The
access to the bus stations is dangerous at some places due to missing protection for the
zebra crossings with speed bumps.
Due to poor signage for the BRT lanes and missing or incorrectly installed bollards at
many pedestrian crossings, motorcycles will be able to easily use the BRT lanes as shortcuts
to cross the road and this can result in fatal accidents. None of the station exits and
pedestrian crossings have refuge areas for people to wait on while waiting for traffic to
clear. This will likely result in people being hit by the bus or private vehicles as they try to
cross.
