June 2019


A petition has been sent to The Office of President of India today citing a bunch of omission and commission of pertinent state departments of Tamil Nadu in Greater Chennai during the calendar periods of 2015 to 2016.  The petition opened up with a regret for the delay in reopening the petition considering overwhelmed with mundane tasks and other works.

The gist of the current petition was about another petition which was filed to the office in the month of March 2015 regarding blatant abuse of Whatsapp by certain officials in the state department and a related one in a neighboring state.  The local operations had the temerity to tag the then petition was Rejected.  Despite tagging petition as rejected it was still transferred to my the then jurisdiction police station and I was compelled to visit them once hot summer afternoon in May 2015 to again explain them every bit of the complaint. I even suggested them that this petition might be better off to be examined at depth by a Cyber expert and Cyber forensic team and not by ordinary plain vanilla law and order team. I have tried my best to explain the importance of defensive cyber crime teams for ever-rising internet age complaints.  However they categorically turned down my requests and regretted that the state department did not have any such facility with them and hence forced me to write a letter addressing their head to rescind the petition with a specific note indicating waiver of any remedial step to be taken by them along with a waiver for them to respond to the petition. Precisely I was forced to annul my petition by duress.

Despite the above completed in June 2015 itself again in the month of March 2015, I was facing piquant calls from these people asking them to give another letter for annuling the petition. I do not understand what happened to the original one. Since I was out of station I had to have the same emailed to them to get the operation closed.

Despite the above turnaround one of the authority had tried to meet my Senior Citizen parent in later part of 2015 and was telling that when he was having discussion me regarding rescinding the petition as in 3, I was warned not to compare their operations with other states people they are superior. Whereas in actual context I was literally bugged and requested to withdraw claiming total incapacitated capability of their operations to look into cyber crimes. I am also shocked to hear about the superior comparison of them against their other state peers.

This unnecessary discussion with my senior citizen parents and my apartments has caused much recurring mental agony for me because they cite this whenever I needed to rise anti graft petitions and I would like the erring teams to give an unconditional apology on these grounds.

Response Needed:

1) Why the petition is tagged Rejected
2) Despite REJECTED state why I was harassed twice for rescinding my original complaint.
3) What is the #Superior comparison of their operations with other state peers?

 

The following petition was submitted to the office of Prime Minister (PMOPG/E/2019/0282081) and also registered as a petition in Change.org.


Dear Sir/Madam,

At the outset, I would extend my heartfelt congratulations for the sweeping victory to Shri Narendra Modi ji and his BJP/NDA team in the recently completed lustrum festival of world’s largest democratic republic. I am proud that I have been helping out too in a very little way with my local BJP members, whatsapp group and also supporting the Mein Bhi Chowkidar concept in Twitter. I have a humble request to you to have a re-look on Animal Welfare laws in India. Most of them are very much stale, obsolete and sans any teeth/power to be enforced and implemented.

  1. If there is an injustice to a section of people they raise against the oppressors and garner support from political parties. But when a poor animal like a puppy or kitten is ill treated and/or left famished they don’t even have a voice to tell anyone and the little ones end up crying about their fate silently.
  2. Additionally when there is a run-over of a human by a vehicle it is treated as a homicide or genocide and the laws are so stringent that the perpetrator can be taken up to and beyond gallows. But running over an animal at best leads to a few rupees fine (as per books of law) which is also not levied and/or implemented by law enforcement agencies who attribute a scant respect for our furry friends. Worst is that the perpetrator is not just left scott free but the complainant started to get harassed by the perpetrator and the law enforcement agencies who view clemency towards animals as an object of sarcasm. At times an egoistic perpetrator starts to target more animals on their axe of cruelty without much respite from the law enforcement agencies.
  3. Furthermore most of the state government have options for subsidised food for the poor people like Amma Unavagam in Tamil Nadu, Indira Canteen in Karnataka to name a few. But there are so much of poor puppies and kitten starving in the streets without getting one square meal. I would like you to look into this issue and ensure that these poor dumb friends get some regular food for themselves.
  4. NDA 1.0 did a very good job in housing sector bring housing dreams quite close to any Indian. However you may be observing millions of dumb friends exposed to rain and shine. It would be great some effort is made to provide shelter to these poor dumb friends. There are weird regulations (written/unwritten) and apartments restrict people from having puppies along with them citing beguile speculations and hallucinations for reasons best known to them.
  5. Additionally when all sections of humans are allowed to use air flights, train, bus and visit temples, I do not know why animals particularly dog and kitten who are akin little babies are embargoed from using these facilities. In your previous tenure you had successfully launched 112 as a single point Emergency Service but when it comes to Emergency services for poor animals ambulances are very less and animal welfare organizations are running in shoestring budget. Human care ambulances refuses to give a lift to our furry friends. Kindly help them with some emergency assistance facilities.
  6. I sincerely appreciate your vision to safeguard girl child with schemes like Beti Bachao Beti Padao, Sukanya Samriddhi Savings Plan etc. In the similar way if we can step up awareness campaign that everyone should adopt a puppy or kitten and not buy, every dog in our Indian street would get a lovely home and a parent.
  7. The dignity of death is also not available for poor friends. When a human dies they gets so much of fan fare for his final procession and rites. But for the unfortunate dog, all they do is throw the carcass of our poor furry friends in some remote waste bin and walk off without any remorse.

I humbly request you to bless our poor dumb furry friends with some love of life and ray of hope.

Thanks and Regards,

Deepak Kumar Vasudevan
