A few pics from yesterday and today. Yesterday i visited the Sishu Bhavan hospital in Cuttack to check on a little girl with neonatal meningitis, whose father had tweeted a few days ago, seeking my help. I had then sent a member of my team to ensure that the infant was attended and, as promised, visited today. I couldn't see the 22-day old since she was still in the ICU, but was glad to hear...

My monthly OpEd in yesterday's Times of India. Deals with the broader topic of how Indian politicians from Narasimha Rao to Narendra Modi have handled economic reforms, in comparison to globally acknowledged reformists like Thatcher, Reagan and Deng. The possibility of Air India being privatised is a symbolic litmus test that Indian governments and politicians have faced for a quarter of a...

Each is of 1 Lakh litres capacity, ie total 5.2 million litres of drinking water facilities for my constituents, and nobody can stop me from pushing them...

Once again goondaism rears its head in party politics, once again i will not bow down to it. Tomorrow is the scheduled inauguration of yet another of the dozens of MPLAD-funded drinking water projects, this one in Rahania in Mahanga MLA segment of my Lok Sabha constituency. Each is a high capacity system (one lakh litres) that eradicates drinking water problems for thousands of constituents....

Was in Japan for three days on a Track-II Strategic Dialogue. Meetings included the PM, several ministers and many other opinion makers from the world of govt, industry, academia etc. Although this was mostly a bilateral, former US Dy.Secretary of State Richard Armitage also participated. The US, Japan & India have been getting closer in recent years and, alongwith other democracies, have been...

Three MPLAD-funded burning ghats were inaugurated today in Kendrapada cemeteries. Development of cemeteries and kabaristans (graveyards) are much in demand, and several other such projects are under development with MPLAD funds. Of course, as always i walked around the neighbourhoods and met constituents young & old, chatting about local issues. Among others i met a state rank holder in class...

I have been overwhelmed by the large number of messages of encouragement and support that I've been receiving through social media and otherwise. I appreciate and value that support. Separately, today i was in various parts of my constituency, attending several marriages. Of course, i always take the opportunity to go beyond the events which I'm attending, and meet other constituents by...

My monthly OpEd in today's Times of India, on Aadhaar, Data Protection, & Privacy. While Aadhaar has come to be at the centre of this issue in India, the risks go far beyond it. Irrespective of what you think of Aadhaar, there is a crying need for a comprehensive, modern new law. As usual, my article is not black and white, but goes into nuances that are not discussed as much as they should...

Yesterday my day started from Salipur in my constituency in the morning to Peera Garhi in Delhi at night. In the constituency, besides meeting many constituents, was the commissioning of yet another of the 52 MPLAD-funded drinking water projects, helping thousands of families. The overhead tanks in these have a 1 lakh litre capacity and also provide the pressure needed for pushing the water...

I was in Garadpur today. At my request local student Twinkle inaugurated the 9th of 52 MPLAD-funded, large overhead-tank based drinking water projects being built in Kendrapada LS constituency. I also met many constituents there, as well as at a Yagna that was on nearby. This being the hottest part of the year, with government restrictions in place to prevent heatwave casualties, the hours of...

Attended five weddings (& fortunately no funerals!) today, in Mahanga, Salepur and Bhubaneswar. Social visits are a big part of an elected representative's regular schedule. I love catching up with peope, and these are great occasions to meet lots of constituents. They serve as great barometers of public mood and can be very useful to a conscientious politician to stay connected. Of course, as...

The issue of data security and privacy is once again in the news, with the Supreme Court hearing a public interest litigation (P.I.L) against the government's decision to make Aadhaar mandatory for tax filings and Permanent Account Numbers (P.AN cards). Data security and privacy are important issues that go far beyond Aadhaar, and even government, with even bigger risks involving cellphones,...

Was in Rajkanika in my constituency today. Among other things, there was the inauguration of the 7th of 39 MPLAD-funded overheard drinking water projects (I'll be sanctioning 13 more from the next round of funds received, taking the total to 52). As always, at my request a local school student, Kajal, inaugurated it. This project cost Rs 28 Lakhs and will benefit thousands of people. I was...

Was today in Kalinga, at the base of the famous 'ghati' (mountain pass) of the same name in Kandhamal district. Even in the scorching summer, the striking beauty of Odisha's interior districts, with large Adivasi populations is evident (and of course, in the cooler months they are stunning). Participated in a college event, which featured students putting on impressive Kui and Sambalpuri folk...

Was in Dubai for a couple of days at the invitation of the Odisha Samaj of the UAE (OSUAE) for their annual event. The Odia diaspora around the world has surged in recent years, and the UAE is no exception. It was good to meet so many fellow Indians from Odisha, doing well in and being valued by their adoptive nation. It was also great to see their continuing love for and engagement with our...

Today was a good day, with the Union cabinet approving two decisions that are close to my heart. First, the decision to amend the Motor Vehicles Act and dispense with red light beacons on the cars of dignitaries, is a symbolic but hugely important blow to our pernicious "VVIP" culture. I have been an outspoken critic of it & for many years have been repeatedly pushing for such changes, both in...
