Shameless Srikant, ashamed Orissa | Orissa Matters

orissamatters.com [cached]

Srikant Jena is no different.
He has more experience as a minister than some of the cabinet colleagues of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. With the experience of handling important departments like Industry and Urban Development in Orissa in the last part of 1980s, he rendered his services as Union Minister of State, Small Scale Industry, Agro and Rural Industries in 1990 and after a gap with parliamentary assignments as Janata Dal's Chief Whip, he again joined the Union Ministry as Cabinet Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Tourism. It was, therefore, expected that, when, despite anti-Congress wave in the State, he was elected to the 15th Lok Sabha in 2009, the Congress, for which he had deserted the Janata Dal, would offer him a cabinet berth that he deserved. Srikant should have refused to accept the position. But shamelessly he accepted and joined as Union Minister of State, Chemicals and Fertilizers. In the last part of 2011, he was allowed to work independently and later put in charge of Statistics and Program Implementation which he had to relinquish in October 2012. Sans any grumble he stayed satisfied with his stultification. He failed to understand that thereby Orissa was embarrassed. Congress Party has further embarrassed Orissa in the last reshuffle of Singh's cabinet. When a more deserving MP like Orissa's former Chief Minister Hemanand Biswal hailing from the tribal community was not even considered for a cabinet berth, Jena was made to make a farce of himself by acquiescing into the PM's reluctance to elevate him to the cabinet. The same motive of Sonia-Singh combine manifested in keeping Jena out of consideration for a cabinet berth in the last expansion of the Union cabinet. Had he even an iota of self-respect or shame, he should have resigned in protest. But to him, staying docile to the Congress autocrat is more important than staying loyal to Oriya mana. He is shameless, but for him, Orissa is ashamed.

Talcher FCI revival; a good first step for Srikant Jena but he needs to get the Paradeep PCPIR approved and establish a NIPER in Orissa
Union minister of state for chemicals and fertilizer, Srikant Jena on Sunday said the fertilizer plant at Talcher, 126 km from here would be revived with an investment of Rs 12,000 crore. It provided direct and indirect employment to 30000 people in the area. "The government will appoint consultants to suggest the modalities to raise finance, identify appropriate technology to revive the closed fertiliser unit at Talcher", Mr Jena told ET. So, it is high time Jena pushed the project to the Union Cabinet for approval by convincing the Cabinet-rank Minister MK Ajhagiri. With this single clearance, Paradip will be in a position to attract huge investments in the petroleum, petrochemicals, fertilisers and other related areas. Similarly, Jena can push for the establishment of a NIPER (National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research) in Orissa.

To Mr. Jena's retort that Mumbai earns so much in taxes and not all of it is spent in Mumbai; we reply that it is often acceptable to take from rich and give to poor; But when did it become acceptable to take from poor (Orissa) and give to rich (freight corridors etc. in other states)? (iii b) Gunupur - Theruvali: This will add to the Naupada-Gunupur line and make it an economically viable line. (IR and Mr. Jena agree about its importance.) This line will be completely inside the Raygada district, part of the undivided Koraput district, one of the K's of KBK. (iv) Talcher - Bimlagarh (connectivity to the tribal district of Sundergarh): This line has been approved but is only being given a few crores each year, which is less than the inflation. This line will reduce the distance between Sundergarh district and teh coastal areas significantly. For example, it will make Rourkela only 4-5 hrs from Bhubaneswar. (v) Baripada/Buramara - Chakulia: This line will connect the tribal district of Mayurbhanj to tribal areas of Jharkhand. It will add to the Rupsa-Baripada-Bangiriposi line and make it an economically viable line. (IR and Mr. Jena agree about its importance.)
