Inconsistencies in Chhattisgarh's Voter Turnout Data Post Assembly Polls Raise Concerns

30 Mar 2023  |  Firstpost
The article discusses discrepancies in voter turnout data reported by the State Election Commission and the Chhattisgarh government's Directorate of Public Relations (DPR) following the Chhattisgarh Assembly elections. While the Election Commission announced a final cumulative polling percentage of 76.35%, the DPR reported 76.60% seven days after the polls. Differences in constituency-wise data were also noted, with some showing significant variations. The Opposition Congress expressed concerns over these discrepancies, especially since past elections have been won by narrow margins. The article also touches on issues with mock poll data from EVMs not being deleted and added to the final tally, which the State Election Commission acknowledged. Complaints of election code violations and poll rigging in Madhya Pradesh are mentioned as well. The article includes comments from various political party representatives and the Chief Electoral Officer of Chhattisgarh, who defended the data discrepancies.

Privatisation of Shivnath River: A Controversial Legacy and an Ongoing Debate

15 Mar 2023  |  Firstpost
The article discusses the controversial decision made by the Madhya Pradesh government in 1998 to privatize a stretch of the Shivnath River by contracting Radius Water Ltd (RWL) to build a barrage and supply water to an industrial estate. Despite criticism and a report by the Public Accounts Committee calling it a plunder of public assets, successive governments have supported the project. The contract led to financial losses for the Chhattisgarh State Industrial Development Corporation due to a flawed water-pricing formula. RWL's enforcement of exclusive water rights has negatively impacted local farmers and fishermen. With the contract up for renewal in 2020 and upcoming elections, the issue remains politically significant.

Chhattisgarh's Paddy Farmers Disappointed with MSP Hike

07 Aug 2019  |  Firstpost
Farmers in Chhattisgarh, India, are dissatisfied with the central government's minimum support price (MSP) for paddy. Despite an increase of Rs 200 per quintal, bringing the MSP to Rs 1,750, farmers argue that it does not cover their costs, which include labor, seeds, pesticides, and manure. The Chhattisgarh government has added a bonus of Rs 300 per quintal, but farmers still face a loss per acre. The BJP had promised an MSP of Rs 2,100 in its manifesto, and the Swaminathan Commission recommended a cost-plus formula for MSP, which has not been implemented. The article also discusses the impact of GST on agricultural inputs and compares MSP increases under different governments. The Chhattisgarh agriculture minister claims the government is working to double farmers' incomes by 2022.

Chhattisgarh Election Results: Women Voters Swing the Vote Against BJP

15 Dec 2018  |  Firstpost

It emphasizes the role of women voters in the election, noting that in constituencies where more women voted than men, the Congress won the majority of seats. The article attributes the Congress's success to promises made during the campaign, such as waiving farmers' loans, increasing the Minimum Support Price for paddy, and supporting a prohibition of liquor. The BJP's failure to fulfill its promise of a liquor ban and the high costs of household commodities like LPG cylinders are cited as reasons for the party's poor performance. The article also mentions the high turnout of female voters in certain constituencies and the defeat of prominent BJP candidates.

Chhattisgarh govt's decision to reduce MSP on forest produce threatens livelihood of 14 lakh tribal families-India News , Firstpost

13 Apr 2018  |  Firstpost
Tribals in Chhattisgarh are facing a livelihood crisis due to the government's reduction of the minimum support price (MSP) for minor forest produce. Saakhu Gond, a tribal from Katghora village, is considering migration as the reduced MSP makes it difficult to earn a living wage from forest produce collection. The Chhattisgarh government has lowered the MSP for various products, affecting over 14 lakh tribal families. The central government has ceased its financial contribution to the MSP, exacerbating the situation. Despite the state government's efforts to compensate with grants and bonuses, the support is insufficient. Tribal-rights activists and organizations express concern over the tribals' forced migration and lack of alternative employment. The state government claims to support tribals through bonuses and MSPs, but the actual benefit to the families is minimal. Critics argue that the government profits from selling the produce at higher market rates without adequately compensating the tribals.
