Its almost one year gone when I started this thread and except some hike in Diesel price there is no sign of any visibility of Biodiesel production anywhere in the state of Karnataka.Hi Bhadrinath,
I sympathize with you ... though I don't fully understand how you were wronged.
"Government" is a way of protecting and supporting the "insiders" at the cost of "outsiders". Obviously you have been an outsider ... for whatever reason.
However, I take objection to your point about Anna. Firstly, Anna is an "outsider" in terms of above definition. He is trying his best to use his meagre resources (time, money, contacts) to target the issues which he feels are most important. Targettng corruption is probably the best thing he could have taken up ... it will probably help your cause as well. He needs our support.
I look forward to your future posts where you will give some details of the problems you faced.
There is a village just 10kms from Davangere town namely Doddabhathi.
There is a mountain mostly red gravelled with a an extent of more than 500 acres of land.
I belong to this place and own no lands thanks to have started Biodiesel business here seven years back.....
The whole mountain is supposed to be maintained by forest and Dist admin but the fact is there is no forest staffs nor any district admin office.
A local proxy is gifted the whole asset and thanks to the support of two NGOs who cleverly colour this mountain in the name of a Hospital, Nursing college and so on.......
The then District commissioners have done their best to spend money in the name of plantations and resort like arrangements and its amazing to see this valueable asset being utilised at will and that too using the name of forestry crops.
I know how the DCs are capable of allotting free lands to their wanted people thanks to the exit route NGO in the state.
While people like me lost land and asset for promoting Biodiesel whereas those close to the MPs, DCs and Politicians can occupy Govt lands and make money.
This is what Karnataka forest lands all about.
Many media people in Davangere knows this but they act less against arrogance of politics.
dear mr.badrinath,iam here with you my friends since six good years writting and reading facts and thoughts without fear and no expectation personally.
While most of the initial players in this subject not only marginalised by both state and central govt but at the same time plenty of people enjoy with great honours drawing huge funds at will from the exchequer needless to say where and when in several states using their proximmity with ruling party.i have enough proofs as for as karnataka is concerned where i not only got the title rebel but lost around forty lakhs of my hard earned money as on date owing to take on many contraversial persons in this subject.
I am personally victimised by the govt of karnataka for the only reason that i am not a proxy of the ruling party whereas the so called state biofuel board in recent times have slowlly and steadily started pouring the whole benefits to their proxy institututions through various channels to suck public money in different formats.
Their only intention to sideline those who do not endorse their irrelevant policies.
I know there may be several other cases in karnataka and elsewhere beyond my experience and thus decided to call upon you readers to come forward and support us at this hour of crisis so that we continue to be here for few more years and rightly so to see a real biodiesel supplies once the price of diesel crosses rs.50/liter soon.
I also invite your feedback and will be more encouraged if more such people who faced humilliiations and incurred losses while promoting biofuels shall come up with their facts so that the puublic can judge the real cause and offer effective support totally on merit.
Its time to evalueate this biodiesel business and those who sacrificed here for their useful contribution and call upon my country men to come bold and extend possible support to the deserving people who continue to sacrifice for the whole country inspite of losses and humilliations just for promoting biodiesel.........
