In Kendrapada today, inaugurated a couple of MPLAD-funded projects. Actually, they were inaugurated, as usual for my projects, by local children. One was a multipurpose building in Barimul, which will be used by the block, Panchayat, self help groups, etc. The other was a mini stadium at Kendrapada town itself, the 18th one built from MPLAD funds. I also played a little volleyball with kids...

Yesterday a group of I.I.T Madras students on a tour to Delhi met me for an interaction. We spoke about the many political reforms that are needed to make India better. I was very impressed with not just their IQ, but their passion for wanting to see our country improve. In the past, alumni of such elite institutes have been accused of emigrating to greener pastures after getting a high...

Earlier this month i was humbled to be bestowed the Politician of the Year award instituted jointly by Swarajya magazine, the India Foundation, and the Indic Academy, and named after Dr SP Mukherjee. It is a huge honour and will inspire me to keep striving for the causes i have been espousing (with which regular visitors to this page would be familiar). This was at the 3rd annual India Ideas...

My monthly Times of India column in today's print and online versions. The topic this time is on reforming political funding for a lasting impact against black money. This is often talked about, including state funding, but usually without any details. I make 3 specific proposals that would have dramatically positive and lasting effects. My proposals, which are based on studying such...

Yesterday i spent the first half of the day in Kendrapada, before heading back to Delhi. Chaired the quarterly district review meeting (now renamed "Disha"), with special emphasis on PMGSY rural roads and medical facilities (more on this below). Also met many constituents and drove around to check on the bank/currency situation. The overwhelming feedback was that the currency crunch had vastly...

Today i attended three public events in different parts of Kendrapada, where the CM launched various projects. For the past few days, there had been an increasing stream of threats, warning me against attending the event in Mahakalpada. Besides privately, some of the threats were made publicly on TV, apparently by supporters of a fellow politician who was recently made to "resign on moral...

Yesterday i was in Choti in my constituency to do an on-site review of the construction of an important bridge that has just started. At Rs 27 cr and nearly half kilometre long, it will create an important connectivity to Bari across in the next district, Jajpur. Regular visitors to this page will recall my dozens of field reviews for similar bridges at Indupur and Danpur, which got completed...

Some pics from yesterday, at public events in Kendrapada and Bhubaneswar. In the constituency, there was inauguration of a govt-cum-panchayat building (by a local schoolgirl, at my request). This was a good example where the local Panchayat pooled its funds with a central govt scheme (of a 'Rajeev Seva Kendra' building) and built another floor for the Panchayat office, getting a larger space...

These here are the other big, medium and small projects that are transforming the area. You'll notice at the top is our first RAILWAY line, which had remained on paper for decades until three years ago. I've been...

The families of those who risk their lives everyday so that we can be safe deserve financial security, let us all contribute towards that (details given in the video). Also, climate change is already damaging our...

Last night on NDTV India (Hindi), I was interviewed on the threat of jobs being eliminated due to new technologies, and whether a radical idea like Universal Basic Income (UBI) could be a solution. UBI is being debated worldwide and many eminent economists are recommending it for India (as i wrote in my monthly Times of India column earlier this week and posted here on FB). Some are wary of an...

Yesterday, spent the first half in Kendrapada town informally, got a haircut from my usual barber Harekrushna, made a condolence call, walked around meeting other shopkeepers and constituents, chatting with them. It's the best way to get to hear the real local news, and the issues that are on their minds. More in pic captions...

My monthly op-ed column in today's Times of India deals with the hottest topic of debate in global economic circles, ie the idea of a Universal Basic Income (UBI) and whether it might work in India. Though India is now the "fastest-growing large economy" in the world, the reality is that there is a desperate shortage of jobs. 8% GDP growth nowadays creates far fewer jobs than it used to in...

Re mplad projects, do...

The key feature was the foundation stone laying of 30 projects for the area, besides implementation of other govt schemes. The atmosphere was energetic. Many other such visits are being planned across the state, including in other parts of...

At a couple of the pandals, memorials had been arranged for the 19 Indian jawans killed in the terrorist attack in Uri, to whom i also paid my last respects. Please see pic...

Participated a couple of days ago in this post-surgical strike discussion on Pakistan. Hosted by Priya Sahgal on NewsX tv channel, the panel also included MPs Dr Subramanian Swamy & Rajeev Chandrashekhar and former MP Pavan Varma. I thought it touched upon a lot of important aspects in a logical, rational, non-ranting, cool and collected manner. Do check out the link below to the video.

These 39 are the 'signature' mplad-funded projects being built now, whereas the earlier signature projects were 17 mini stadia, besides dozens of school & college classrooms, hundreds of tubewells and many other such smaller projects. Of course the really large projects --like bridges, our first...
