Capitalist Gujarat SGDP 20% of India 1947, 7% Now & Patel  
Noveber04, 2018 (C) Ravinder Singh ravindersinvent@gmail.com

Whenever Iyer writes I respond with better and Real Story. I don’t have Detailed Economic Data but observations are Politically Accurate – some difference may be there in GDP figures, which are not presented correctly in Time & Region wise.

IYER has reported how rift between Finance Minister Liaqat Ali Khan& Home Minister Vallabhbhai Patel escalated and led to Partition of India on Issue of Taxes.

Both Vallabhbhai Patel and Liaqat Ali Khan didn’t Consider & Realize the ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCIES of Partition which was the CORE Issue at that time. Gujarat perhaps contributed 15% of United India GDP [20% of Indian Region] and Sindh 10% - Gujarat now accounts for 7% of GDP Net of India and 5% United India and Sindh $83b which is less than 3% of India-Pakistan-Bangladesh GDP together.

Political Disagreement between Gandhi and Jinah reduced the ECONOMIC Contribution of Gujarat+Sindh to around 8% at present then 25% to may be 30% before 1947 partition. BAD CAPITALISM FAILED IN SOUTH ASIA.   

Now Gujarat has 40% more GDP– Sindh 7% more than National Averages.

Ø Gujarat and Sind regions of United India accounted for over 70% of UI Trade that mainly originated in Gujarat and Sind.

Ø Though Ports are ACTIVE due to Location but Non Petroleum Exports from Gujarat may not be 5% and 2% for Sindh of United India Geographical region.

Ø Gujarat and Sind produced around 50% of Consumer Goods in United India – Textiles, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, and Trade alone has huge PROFIT MARGINS, Gujaratis & Sindhis could migrate from hundreds of ports along the Coastline and establish in Africa, Europe & North America.

Ø More than 50% of Prominent Political Leaders mostly CAPITALISTS & Industrialists came from Bombay to Karachi belt. Gandhi, Jinah, Patel, Tata, Bajaj, Wadia etc.  

Ø Gandhi-Patel-Jinah CONFLICT Led to Partition & Bombay Karachi belt Lost ECONOMICALLY & POLITICALLY. Baring briefly Bhuttos and Morarji Desai – now Modi from Varanasi – had little political influence.

Global Gateway: Gujarat is a leader in exports with more than 20 percent share to India’s aggregate exports. 39.82 % of all cargo and more than 71 per cent cargo handled by Non-major ports of the Country is from Gujarat.
GSDP Share: With only 4.99 per cent population share, Gujarat accounts for 7.6 per cent share to National GDP.
Industrial Output Gujarat enjoys the status of industrially developed state of India with its 18.4 per cent share to Country’s industrial output, the largest among the states of India. [SER 2017-18]

Wide Publication of Declaration of Criminal Antecedents of Contesting Candidates
New Delhi: Addressing the issue of increasing criminalisation of politics, a five-judge bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, had on 25th September, 2018, given five main directions to the candidates and the political parties distributing tickets to these candidates for contesting elections (Page-97 of the Judgement). They are:
(i) Each contesting candidate shall fill up the form as provided by the Election Commission and the form must contain all the particulars as required therein.
(ii) It shall state, in bold letters, with regard to the criminal cases pending against the candidate.
(iii) If a candidate is contesting an election on the ticket of a particular party, he/she is required to inform the party about the criminal cases pending against him/her.
(iv) The concerned political party shall be obligated to put up on its website the aforesaid information pertaining to candidates having criminal antecedents.
(v) The candidate as well as the concerned political party shall issue a declaration in the widely circulated newspapers in the locality about the antecedents of the candidate and also give wide publicity in the electronic media. When we say wide publicity, we mean that the same shall be done at least thrice after filing of the nomination papers.
After the Judgement of the Apex Court, the Election Commission of India (ECI) had issued a circular to all the Chief Election Officers of the States and Union Territories apart from the President/ General Secretary of all recognised National and State Political Parties on 10th October, 2018. This circular, apart from highlighting the changes made to the format of the affidavits of the contesting candidates, had also directed all candidates with criminal cases against them, either pending or cases of conviction in the past, to publicise this information in newspapers with wide circulation. This direction of the Election Commission was also to all the political parties that set up candidates with criminal cases against them.
Directions to the contesting candidates
The ECI had insisted that a format (Format C-1) be followed …“at least on three different dates from the day following the last date for withdrawal of candidatures and up to two days before the date of poll.”  While insisting that the order of the Apex Court be followed in letter and spirit, the ECI had also recommended that “The declaration in newspapers should be published in font size 12 and should be placed suitably in the newspapers…”
The ECI had also directed the contesting candidates to submit copies of the newspapers in which their declarations about criminal cases were published to the District Electoral Officers at the time of filing their election expenditure statements (within 30 days of declaration of results of Assembly Elections).
Contesting candidates are required to “…publish the above declaration on TV channels in the State concerned on at least three different dates…” In order to adhere to the Model Code of Conduct, such declarations should be completed before 48 hours of polling date.
The candidates are also required to declare before the Returning Officers that they have informed their political parties of their criminal antecedents. This declaration has been included in the newly amended format of affidavit (Form-26) for contesting candidates.
Directions to the Political Parties
Similar to the format for declaration of criminal antecedents by contesting candidates, the ECI has also recommended a format (Format C-2) for political parties (recognised and unrecognised) to “… publish declaration giving details in this regard, for wide publicity, on their website as well as in TV channels and newspapers having wide circulation in the State concerned.”
This declaration by political parties is also required to be done at least thrice on three different dates before the date of poll, in the same format and font size recommended for contesting candidates.
Political parties are required to “... submit a report to the Chief Electoral Officer of the State/ UT…” so as to confirm that the direction of the ECI had been followed, along with relevant newspaper cuttings.
The ECI has also stated that “... failure to abide by these directions would be treated as failure/ refusal to carry out a lawful direction of the Commission for the purposes of paragraph -16A of the Election Symbols (Reservation & Allotment) Order, 1968.
This release is being circulated by ADR for larger public interest and wider voter awareness. We appeal to the print, electronic and online media to monitor and highlight the fact whether the above mentioned directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court and the ECI are being followed and implemented by the Political Parties and their candidates.
