Last week i had written this article in the DNA newspaper, suggesting 5 changes in Parliament's rules which would go a long way to make it function better. Essentially, these are about modernising our parliamentary functioning, which still depends on 19th century western norms of consensus, which western democracies themselves have revised. It's not much use blaming individual politicians, or...

Yesterday, in various parts of Kendrapada, my day was full of condoling, inaugurating, encouraging, & chatting. Though calling on bereaved constituents is a sad part of my job, yesterday was particularly tough. In Kotsahi, Rajkanika, i visited Sarat Barik whose father died the previous day at a govt medical facility and, apparently due to unavailability of a hearse or ambulance, was carried...

Was in my constituency the whole day. Met constituents, inaugurated three MPLAD-funded projects (actually, as usual, they were inaugurated by local students on my request), conducted a public meeting at my second Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) panchayat, and many other activities.

My monthly op-ed column in today's Times of India, on streamlining our elections into two cycles. Though the idea of "One India, one election" has been gaining ground, we would be better served by "One nation, two elections." I've cited analysis/reports from the Law Commission, Election Commission, Parliamentary Standing Committee, & Niti Aayog. There are many benefits of this over a single...

A couple of days ago i was on Rajya Sabha TV's "To The Point" program (link below to video). Unlike panel discussions, this is a solo interview, which is much better for discussing issues, rather than the usual fire & brimstone. Host Neelu Vyas has a polite but persistent style of questioning that leaves no stone unturned. And as usual, my style was candid and "to the point." We covered...

To The Point with Baijayant Jay Panda

In conversation with Biju Janata Dal's MP Baijayant Jay Panda Anchor: Neelu Vyas

I was on a discussion on India Today TV yesterday, about the causes of the current logjam in parliament. Others in the panel included MPs from the BJP, Congress, TMC & CPI(M). I thought this discussion stood out for the probing questions anchor Karan Thapar asked all sides, not to mention everybody getting a chance to speak by turns. I tried to go beyond the superficial posturing to explain...

Parliament washout, trouble on streets: Are we seeing govt-opposition fixed match? : To The Point: India Today

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...

My latest quarterly review (link below) of infrastructure projects in Kendrapada. This is not related to MPLAD-funded projects, which were reviewed and posted here a few days ago. 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...
