Re: [IAC#RG] COMPLAINT of ethical violations in reporting by NDTV

Ms. Sonia Singh
Editorial Director/NDTV and Head NDTV Ethics Committee

copy:
1) Shri Ashim Khurana, Chairman Staff Selection Commission
2) All subscribers of INDIA AGAINST CORRUPTION jan andolan primary mailing list

BY EMAIL

Dear Ms. Sonia Singh

There is a deafening silence from your organisatioon concerning the specific complaints we have made to NDTV at all levels concerning deliberate misreporting by your reporters / anchors on the alleged SSC exam leakages. Since NCTV seems unwilling to respond or take action promptly, I am now caused to send a copy of my complaint to Chairman SSC who equally appears to be a victim of your channel's political vendetta and whose organisation has responded promptly and in time to my RTI requests for information on these alleged leakages.

NB: If there is something about the word "immediately" contained in the "Corrigendum" clause of your organisation's Code of Ethics and Broadcasting Standards which you do not understand, I would be happy to correct the deficiency(s) in your education

Immediately : at once; instantly.
Immediately : without any intervening time or space.

Accordingly, I am again calling upon you to do the following things immediately,.

1) Issue appropriate corrigenda for the significant mistakes all your news stories (television and convergence) on alleged SSC CGL exam paper leaks

2) Suspend the reporter Sonal Mehrotra Kapoor for her broadcasts

sincerely

BY EMAIL

Dear Ms. Singh

I am constrained to complain about the unethical practices being followed by your channels / news reporters, eg. Sonal Mehrotra Kapoor in broadcasting biased and one-sided reportage of the Staff Selection Commission's alleged examination "leaks". Several emails I have sent to your legal dept, the feedback section etc. about the recent Youthquake and Yuva Kranti series on this topic have been ignored and no corrigenda are forthcoming.

I am complaining that your aforesaid reporter has crossed the journalistic "line" by basing her reportage mainly on sources directly linked to three political parties, ie. CPI(ML), Indian National Congress and Swaraj India which have been manufacturing, circulating forged and fabricated documents allegedly depicting remote access softwares (like AMMY, Team Viewer etc) being used to remotely answer SSC's CGL 2017 examination while the computer based (online) exam is in progress.

I am complaining that your reporter has chosen, for reasons best known to her or your channels, to ignore the RTI replies of the Staff Selection Commission to me which say that the SSC has not conducted / held any computer based (online) exam in 2016, 2017 or 2018, and that they have no information of any complaint received for cheating, leakage or other malpractices in any (alleged) online examination of SSC.

NB: It is noteworthy that the SSC is an attached office of the DoPT (which also administers the RTI Act 2005) and my RTI queries and the replies received are easily acccesible to the whole world on DoPT's Rtionline webportal and certainly to your reporter if she did her job properly / honestly.

In this connection, it is not clear to me, or other subscriber viewers of NDTV like me, what authentic sources your aforesaid reporter Sonal MK is basing her stories on. However, because your news channel has subscribed to a self regulatory association which has prescribed a Code of Ethics for its members, you are obliged to ensure fairness and balance in reportage and present all points of view on a controversy no matter how much you personally disagree with that view or the person who holds that view. You are also required to issue corrigendums to any false reporting.

I am complaining that your reporter had deliberately excited dissatisfaction against the Central Government based on forged documents and with the motive to bring SSC aspirants to New Delhi on 31 March 2018 for CPI(ML) and Swaraj India's "Hallabol" premeditated violent agitation to assault police officers in Delhi and disrupt the city. It is noteworthy that lakhs of SSC aspirants from all over India taking coaching in Delhi were very well aware of the violent natrure of this agitation and stayed away from these protests. Your aforesaid reporter was also sitting in with these advocates of violence outside Mandir Marg Police Station on 31 March 2018 whiile they were coordinating attacks on police officers and other public servants utilising foreign social media resources..

Finally, I am suggesting that you have a personal / family conflict of interest qua the Indian National Congress Party, whose spokesperson had held a press conference on these alleged SSC paper leaks on or about 19 March 2018 where these alleged documents described by your reporter were circulated, and so should recuse from hearing my complaint.

sincerely

Re: [IAC#RG] the 'hard life' of army veterans

I just clicked on 'reply'. Not only the veterans, their families too. I saw how in 1962 my soldier brother.in.law's wife, my sister, gave her marriage jewellery to govt.to help finance relief and all army women knitted socks for the jawans on the front. Most of the fatalities in 1962 were due to zero acclimatization, mountain sickness leading to pulmonary odema (including of Gen. Kaul himself), and hypothermia. And a very confused command hierarchy (see D. K. Palit's War in High Himalaya, he was DMO then).

The situation will not be different in a future war in that sector no matter how much is spent on jets and new weaponry, given the high preparedness of the PLA and their political bosses. I have spent nights in PLA camps in Tibet on a journey to and fro Lhasa and seen the troops' high morale, excellent health status, good food supplies, visible mental resilience and, most of all, high altitude acclimatization on the Tibetan plateau at 12,000'.

[IAC#RG] Fwd: [triservicesveterans] HOW WE SAFEGUARD OUR BORDERS - A Pity






 



Signal of infra gap: 'Welcome to China' on phones in India

By 
Rajat Pandit


IAF-aircraft.jpg-BCCl   
"We have no connectivity, whether it is roads or mobiles. It takes a mental toll. Even the
 evacuation of an injured soldier be comes a huge logistical challenge," an Army official said. 

KIBITHU/KAHO (ARUNACHAL PRADESH): 'Welcome to China' suddenly pops up on the screen of one's mobile phone, which has been dead for several hours, as one heads towards the border on a single, narrow and extremely bumpy road. 

Displaying characters in Mandarin to indicate full connectivity, the phone promptly switches to Beijing time, which is two-and-a-half hours ahead of India. You then look across the Line 
of Actual Control (LAC) to see the sprawling Tatu military complex of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), which even includes a three-storey building, connected by a smooth, wide, seemingly metalled road. 

"But we have no connectivity, whether it is roads or mobiles. It takes a mental toll. Even the evacuation of an injured soldier becomes a huge logistical challenge since the only road coming to Kibithu from Tezu is frequently blocked by landslides," says an Indian Army officer, keeping  tabs on the PLA troops across the unresolved border in this 'east of the north-east' region. 

"If the road is cut off during hostilities, we will not be able to move troops or equipment. The main operational challenge for us here is the lack of roads, bridges and inter-valley connectivity, not military equipment or manpower," he adds. In the entire Lohit Valley sector, for instance, there is no concrete bridge after Hawai, which is 76km south of Kibithu. 

                              

Untitled-1




































Consequently, the Army is forced to make do with rickety foot-suspension bridges over the Lohit river, called Ngi Chu across the LAC, and an optical fibre communication line, which was laid way back in 2003 and has to be "maintained" on a daily basis over a 280-km stretch. 

This grim situation is repeated all along the unresolved 4,057-km LAC stretching from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh, with India's lack of border military infrastructure only serving to further compound the stark asymmetry with China in terms of military capabilities. 

China's assiduous building of military infrastructure in the Tibet Autonomous Region, which includes 14 airbases, an extensive rail network and over 58,000km of roads, gives it the capability to swiftly induct and sustain 30-32 divisions (each with over 12,000 troops) against India. 

But this last-mile connectivity for Indian troops remains a distant dream till now. Only 28 of the 73 'strategic' all-weather roads, with more east-west lateral links as well as better access routes to stra tegic peaks and valleys, identified for construction almost two decades ago have been fully completed till now. 

In eastern Arunachal Pradesh, for instance, the road heads are around 20 to 70 km away from the LAC in most stretches, forcing Indian troops to regularly undertake long-range patrols to "physically dominate" the country's claim lines in the treacherous terrain. "Unlike us, the Chinese troops largely remain in their rear areas because they can reinforce fast  due to their infrastructure build-up," says an officer. 

There is now a renewed but belated thrust on road and communication connectivity in the region, which has speeded up after the 73-day troop faceoff at Doklam near the Sikkim-Bhutan-Tibet trijunction last year. 

"We are working on 17 single-span bridges in the Lohit Valley area, which will be 35-to 74-metre long and capable of even carrying tanks. We are also working on a major bailey   suspension bridge, which will be the first such one between Hawai and Kibithu," says Colonel Rajeev Dhingra, commander of the 48 Border Road Task-Force. The soldiers are keeping their fingers crossed.
