Dear Sir,

      Apropos  my submission at ‘Meet the People’, SGCCI, Surat ,30eth Sept.2009, I send herewith a copy of the same document. for your perusal.

       Please examine the utility of such a function. You arrived late by 55 minutes. Instead of stipulated & advertised 01 hour and 30 minutes , you could hardly spare 25 minutes for the event..As i came earlier for registration necessary for paticipation in the programme,  i waited for 01 hour 25 minutes to present my case. I became desperate and handed over my case papers to you without receiving its acknowledgment from the official of your ministry.The programme  was hijacked by the SGCCI member industrialists who did not bother for prior registration . i and another gentleman , Mr.Patodia of Puna Gaum , Surat were at askance at hypocrisy of the industry and your ministry. Please for God’s sake , stop this nonsense aimed at orchestrated  publicity.

        Prior to Lok Sabha Elections – 2009, a personal assistant  to Shri Dinsha Patel , the then MoS , Ministry of P. & N.G. assured that  “as the issue in question  is of serious and important legal value , it will be surely included in the list of pending issues of the ministry which would then be taken up by the new ministry”. Your portfolio remained the same but Mr. Dinsha Patel is now no more your MoS. Some how I feel that right from Mr. K. D. Malaviya’s  days, Petroleum Ministry has subserved  the interests of moneyed bags and ignored the plight of common citizens.   

RGTIL procured services of retired deputy collectors, mamlatdars, circle officers , talatis etc.  who in the guise of  ‘ in service’ govt.  revenue officers ,overtly and covertly, coerced  land owners to agree upon the compensation  amount as offered by RGTIL. i was shocked to notice various irregularities and malpractices of  RGTIL at various stages.

 Even though your health is not my problem, as a medical doctor,  i will be extremely pleased if you don’t have hypertension and diabetes . Your gait seemed unusual to me and i had the first feeling of something grossly wrong with your health.

             You are an asset to Indian National Congress and India. i render unsolicited advice .Please get your complete health check up.

                        Waiting to hear from you soon,

 Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Bankimchandra M. Desai .

                                                                       Re: ‘Meet the People’ dated 30-09-2009

Dear Sir,

              I thank you and  SGCCI for registering my name for participation in individual citizen’s category.

              i and Mr.Patodia of Puna Gaum , Surat came much earlier and we were told by the receptionist that ‘only the individuals who have registered their names would be allowed to participate in the discussion /debate’ . Mr Patodia was  first and I was second to register.

.             Shri Murli Deora  arrived late by 55 minutes. Instead of stipulated & advertised 01 hour and 30 minutes , he  could hardly spare 25 minutes for the event. The programme  was hijacked by the SGCCI member industrialists who did not bother for prior registration . When I realised that it was useless to wait for my chance, i   became desperate and handed over my case papers to you & Mr.Deora without receiving its acknowledgment from the official of his ministry.i hope that my papers are still with you and you will pursue the matter with the ministry.

              i and Mr Patodia were at askance at hypocrisy of the industry and the ministry concerned. People were not there at ‘Meet the People’.                                                                                                                                 

              i am associated with the activities of SGCCI in different capacity for three decades.i have few suggestions for you and other friends active at SGCCI.

            (1)  i feel that it is, now , a high time we abandon formalities like  introduction , felicitation and thanks giving. It will save time, money , materials like flowers (real or plastic) .This rituals serve only one purpose . Various office bearers of SGCCI get a sense of participation and opportunity to get photographed !  Please for God’s sake , stop this nonsense aimed at orchestrate publicity.

(2)     Probably this is one of the reasons of apathy towards chamber’s activity .By and large SGCCI has failed to attract non-member citizens towards our activities due to our methods in conducting programmes involving non-member citizens.

(3)     We should ensure that our guest, whosoever he or she may be, arrive before time  and he/she should be given the maximum exposure to the participant audience.

(4)      Member industrialists must maintain discipline and in no case they should be  allowed to hijack the event, as it happened on 30-09-2009 at ‘ Meet the People’.   The gentlemen may be donors of some sort or moneyed bags , but, they should behave atleast in the SGCCI premises.

i have seen many such fellows disappearing from industrial scene of the city.  i and Mr. Patodia were only two individual citizen participants.The way i lost patience and submitted my papers without your permission , is hardly permissible, but, if there would have been a crowd of restless citizens, what would have been a scene with Mr. Murli Deora….!?

        Surat and its common citizens have persisted & survived despite such elements .

     Thanking you,

     Yours Sincerely,

 (Dr. Bankimchandra M.Desai)

      C.F.W.C. to Mr. Murli Deora
