Mess in Press Trust of India. Who is the next editor at PTI?

Will PTI be the news agency that everyone can Trust?

Will PTI be the news agency that everyone can Trust?

India’s premier news agency Press Trust of India (PTI) is now in a mess as several forces ranging from powerful politicians to corporates are trying to get “their own” new Editor. PTI is controlled by a consortium of major media houses. For the past few decades PTI’s Chief Editor and CEO M K Razdan was calling the shots, though there is a hardly convened Board, consisting of owners of major newspapers. Razdan was a go between the government, powerful politicians and the Board and he was continuing in this post with a fat salary and perks of around Ra. 25 lakhs ($37,000) per month.

How old is Razdan is a mystery in media world and the many extensions that he got, as Congress Government (some allege Sonia Gandhi’s Political Secretary Ahmed Patel) backed him to the hilt. It is a known thing in the media world,  that every year, when the Board convenes, the media owners will get calls from the I&B Minister or the Uber Secretary of the Grand Old Party to pass the agenda to grant “one more” extension of service. Some say Razdan is 73, some say only 71, some say he crossed 75.  A running joke in journalism circles is that when asked his age, his daughter Nidhi Razdan (NDTV anchor) would just smile.

Even  the Left wing controlled employer unions were silent on Razdan’s un-ending continuance in PTI, revoking all service norms, where normally people have to retire at the age of 60. All CPI(M) General Secretaries were friendly with Razdan and the unions were not heard. Every politician cutting across party lines is in good terms with Razdan as he entertains all.

Anyway this time Board took a “revolutionary” decision to “plead” Razdan to leave. His glamorous post of CEO and Editor was bifurcated. New CEO V Venkatesh was appointed and Razdan’s tenure as Editor was to end by March 31. But there was a clause;  Razdan will continue as Editor till the new person is selected.

Meanwhile, some in the know say that Razdan had a tussle with the former I&B Minister Arun Jaitley a few months back. Jaitley wanted to put either Ashok Malik or Shishir Gupta as PTI’s Editor. Ashok Malik is now a senior research fellow in Observer Research Foundation and Shishir Gupta is the Executive Editor of Hindustan Times. Anyway it is believed that Razdan did not like this proposal and he used his might in the Board to scuttle Jaitley’s plan of succession at the news agency, painting Jaitley’s attempt as “saffronisation” of PTI.

There was no saffronisation. Jaitley perhaps was doing what every previous I & B minister did. After foiling Jaitley’s plans, it is widely believed that Razdan convinced the Board to hire a recruiting agency Accord India to select a new Editor. Journalists allege that Accord India started the selection procedure in an unprofessional way. They did a mechanical work of short listing and interviewing existing staffers of PTI and erased out many without any reasons and came out with a list of seven persons for the top job. Accord India worked on what Razdan wanted, allege the journalists. The interview was like a typical mass manpower recruiting and no media professionals were on board, allege some who attended these “sham” exercises.

The seven persons finalised by Accord India are: Barun Jha, Priyanka Tikoo, Sumir Kaul, Amitabha Roy Chowdhury, Samir Mishra, Sudhakar Nair and current Executive Editor V S Chandrasekhar. Though the current Executive Editor V S Chandrasekhar is the most eligible, Razdan lobby says that as Chandrasekhar is now 61 years old, he should not be entertained and opportunity should be given to  a “young blood” such as Priyanka Tikoo. Funny how this argument was never used when M K Razdan was getting his extensions!

The employees unions and Left leaders are lobbying for their favourite Amitabha Roy Chowdhury.  Some journalists allege that Razdan wanted Sumir Kaul to be elevated as Executive Editor. Meanwhile, the buzz is that several politicians are also working hard to bring some other journalists to head the PTI, by asking the Board, consisting of media owners to toe their line. Several powerful Corporate Houses are also eagerly watching the games and their main interest is to know who will head the Business Bureau of PTI. Anyway in the coming days several interesting things will be  unfolding on who will head India’s premier news agency PTI, which everyone wants to control.

    Press Trust of India (PTI) has come a long way from a news agency known for objective reporting to a sanctuary of corrupts and criminals.
    The downhill journey has been particularly noteworthy in past three-four years.
    The organization’s viciously corrupt former CEO-cum-EIC Mahapapi Karpet Razdan alias Rascal Razdan resisted all possible moves to resist being forced into retirement at the ripe age of 72 years by using his sources in Congress leadership and a section of English-speaking PTI Board members.
    The shameless Razdan finally left at the end of September 2016, but left behind a corrupt union leader MS Yadav by arranging his endless extension by paying a huge bribe into crores of rupees to the former PTI Chairman K N Sanath Kumar.
    A patron of all that is rotten in PTI, Yadav rules with iron fist demanding the editorial and administrative management must execute transfer, promotion and rehabilitation of employees, including journalists, close to him and more often than not gets it done as well.
    The latest example being a habitual “20 per cent commission-khor’ journalist from Patna, namely Sanjay Kumar Sinha, was rewarded for corruption by elevation as Dy Regional Bureau Chief at Kolkata recently and now being sent to Russia to hone skills of corruption, bootlicking and bootlegging etc.
    Yadav is also manipulating his equation with Rascal Razdan to get Sinha posted as Regional Bureau Chief at Mumbai so that he could terrorise council members at Mumbai to vote for his mentor if any contest takes place on federation general secretary’s post early next month.
    The founding members of PTI could have never imagined decades back that corruption, nepotism and all sorts of wrong doings will one day become Standard Operating Procedure in the reputed news agency.
    Today, it is learnt that the board meeting of PTI is scheduled at Mumbai and one may keep fingers crossed to find out what is the latest guideline on policy related to corruption and nepotism in the organization.
    If not, then why the corrupt union leader is continuing in service on extension for fifth year post-retirement in November 2013.
    How can a PTI employee have two fathers, two DOBs and forged certificates and continue as a leading face of the organization ?
    In a shameless system, we know that none will stand for truth, including South Indians – better educated than Northern brethrens, but there is no harm in asking questions and this is what we have been doing for past 18 months indefatigablly.

    पीटीआई के भ्रष्ट यूनियन नेता के एक्सटेंशन का भंडाफोड़ उसके एक खास गुर्गे ने ही किया
    देश की अग्रणी न्यूज़ एजेंसी, प्रेस ट्रस्ट ऑफ इंडिया (पीटीआई), के भ्रष्ट यूनियन नेता महावीर सिंह यादव (64) का एक्सटेंशन हमेशा एक पहेली रहा है ।
    घोर भ्रष्टाचारी को एक्सटेंशन किसने किया, कितने पैसे लिए और क्या-क्या लेन-देन हुआ होगा, इसके बारे में तथ्यात्मक जानकारी बहुत कम लोगों के पास है ।
    हालांकि यादव ने पीटीआई फेडरेशन की चंडीगढ़ में सम्पन्न हुई एग्जीक्यूटिव मीटिंग में खुद खुलासा किया था कि एक बोर्ड मेंबर के उसे 2019 तक एक्सटेंशन का पत्र अपने हाथों से दिया है ।
    कोलकाता से सूत्रों द्वारा प्राप्त जानकारी के अनुसार यादव का खास वफादार और कोलकाता ब्यूरो का डिप्टी ब्यूरो चीफ संजय कुमार सिन्हा ने कुछ दिनों पहले यादव के एक्सटेंशन पर से पर्दा उठा दिया ।
    सिन्हा, जो यादव का खास वफादार रहा है और यूनियन मीटिंग्स कराने के लिए ’20 प्रतिशत कमिसनखोरी’ को पटना में एक स्टार्ट अप कंपनी में बदल दिया, ने पिछले सप्ताह, कोलकाता में यह खुलासा किया कि 2013 में चुने गए पीटीआई बोर्ड चेयरमैन के इन सनथ कुमार ने भारी-भरकम धनराशि लेकर यादव को रास्कल राज़दान के हाथों एक्सटेंशन दिलाया था ।
    सिन्हा के अनुसार यादव ने जितनी धनराशि एक्सटेंशन के एवज के दी थी उसकी भरपाई 2019 तक संभव नही है, इसलिए भ्रष्टाचारी यादव कम से कम 2019 तक तो पीटीआई की सेवा में जरूर रहेगा ।
    कोलकाता के सूत्र बताते है कि सिन्हा ने वहां के कर्मियों को यादव के साथ देने और दुबारा उसे जनरल सेक्रेटरी बने रहने के लिये डराना-धमकाना भी शुरू कर दिया है और इसके एवज में भ्रष्टाचारी यादव ने अपने खास गुर्गे को रूस की यात्रा का प्रबंध भी कर दिया ।
    क्या पता सिन्हा या यादव को रूस में अपनी काली कमाई को निवेश करना हो ।
    यादव ने सिन्हा से मुम्बई में रीजनल मैनेजर बनाये जाने का एक पत्र भी लिखवाया है और वादा किया है कुछ भी डील करके उसे मुम्बई भिजवा देगा ।
    आखिरकार पीटीआई को मुम्बई में अपना दाऊद इब्राहिम या हाजी मस्तान जल्दी ही मिल जाएगा ।

  3. details available on FB/Twitter
    पिछले डेढ़ साल से देश की अग्रणी न्यूज़ एजेंसी, प्रेस ट्रस्ट और इंडिया, में व्याप्त व्यापक भ्रष्टाचार के बारे में कागजी सबूतों के आधार पर लिखते आ रहे हैं ।
    दरअसल पीटीआई में भ्रष्टाचार, अराजकता और मनमानापन केवल दो व्यक्तियों – पूर्व-सीईओ महापापी कार्पेट राज़दान उर्फ रास्कल राज़दान और अतिभ्रष्ट यूनियन नेता महावीर सिंह यादव – की देन है ।
    रास्कल राज़दान (72) जो कांग्रेस का दलाल था आखिरकार पिछले साल विदा हो गया, लेकिन भ्रष्टाचारी यादव आज भी इच्छाधारी साँप की तरह राज कर रहा है ।
    आप में कोई भी व्यक्ति यह बताए कि क्या दो बापों के पुत्र कहलाकर कोई खुश होगा लेकिन इस इंसान (यादव) के दो आधिकारिक कागजातों में दो बाप यानी लक्मन सिंह और लक्ष्मी नारायण यादव दर्ज है । पीटीआई जैसी न्यूज़ एजेंसी के नाम पर बदनुमा दाग बन चुके यादव के दो डेट ऑफ बर्थ है – 14/11/1953 और 14/11/1957 – दर्ज है ।
    इस 64 वर्षीय भ्रष्टाचारी पीटीआई यूनियन नेता ने बेटी सबिता यादव, जो एक फ्रॉड डॉक्टर है, के नाम पर नोएडा प्लाट अलॉटमेंट घोटाला किया और बेटे अमित यादव के नाम पर फेडरेशन की अतिमहँगी जमीन रजिस्ट्री करा दी ।
    इसने यूनियन मीटिंग को 20 प्रतिशत कमिसनखोरी का धंधा बना दिया ।
    लेकिन इन बातों से ना तो इसके वफादार गुर्गों को फर्क नही पड़ता है ना ही पीटीआई की नई मैनेजमेंट को और नही पीटीआई के बोर्ड और डायरेक्टर्स को ।
    यादव ने बड़ी निर्लज्जता से पिछले महीने की फेडरेशन एग्जीक्यूटिव मीटिंग में कहा था कि 2013 में चुने गए पीटीआई चेयरमैन के इन सनथ कुमार की संतुती पर रास्कल राज़दान ने इसे ना खत्म होनेवाला एक्सटेंशन दिया था ।
    इसी मीटिंग में यादव ने कहा था कि वो इच्छाधारी सांप है और सारे दुश्मनों को डंस का पीटीआई से जाएगा ।
    राज़दान के दो दशकों से ऊपर तक पीटीआई के शासक रहने का फलाफल यही है वो संस्था को एक सांप और भ्रष्टाचारी सिंडिकेट तोहफे में देकर गया है ।
    यह कहना कोई अतिशयोक्ति नही होगी कि पीटीआई अपने ढलान पर है और दुर्भाग्य की बात है कि भारत सरकार अपनी भ्रष्टाचार-विरोधी डिंग हांकने के बावजूद, इस मामले में कुछ नही कर रही है जबकि इस संस्था के क्रियाकलाप देश के कानून के दायरे में आता है ।
    सुनने में आया है कि पीटीआई की बोर्ड मीटिंग कल या परसों प्रस्तावित है।
    यादव और राज़दान-पीड़ित कर्मचारीगण बोर्ड मेंबर्स से उम्मीद करते है यादव का एक्सटेंडेड कार्यकाल को तुरंत खत्म करे और मैनेजमेंट को कहे कि इसके द्वारा किये गए भ्रष्टाचार के विरुद्ध एफईआर करे ।
    वर्ना मोदी की तरह कोई और क्रूर शासक आएगा और आज के पीटीआई के पापों का हिसाब लेगा ।

  4. Dear readers the following comments received on FB

    Guru Das
    ‘सात खून माफ’, if you are a PTI employee blessed by rogue and corrupt union leader MS Yadav
    By now, all of you must have become expert of sad affairs of India’s premier news agency PTI as so much has been written about it in social media over the past 18 months or so.
    The Ex-CEO MK Razdan, whom we lovingly call Mahapapi Carpet Razdan, has left behind a legacy of corruption, nepotism and ISI-style brutalities on staffers despised by Team Razdan.
    When the new officials at top in administration and editorial took over charge, there was hope that Razdan’s men and women will sidelined, but not only have all of them emerged more powerful, but they are also patronizing rogue and corrupt union leader MS Yadav’s ‘commission-khor’ henchmen and working round the clock to place those elements in key editorial and administrative positions in metropolitan cities like Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata.
    What is ‘commission-khori’ in PTI? You may be wanting to know.
    It is a PTI management-sanctioned racket run for decades by the rogue union leader Yadav in which manager and special Correspondent-grade journalists mandatorily host lavish federation AGM/Executive Meeting (1+3 in every calender year) by collecting 40-50 lakh rupees as advertisement from state government, PSUs, Universities and private donations.
    Those PTI journalists and non-journalists who bring in advertisement stand to get 20 per cent commission. So it you bring Rs. 5 lakh in advt, you pocket swells by Rs. 1 lakh which you need not declare in IT return.
    With the blessings of Rascal Razdan, Yadav promoted this racket of ‘Commission-khor’ bureau chiefs, senior reporters for years and regrettably many of those corrupt journalists are set be promoted as heads of regional bureau in metros by the new management.
    The Prime Minister Narendra Modi talks bullshit when he calls for eradication of corruption and black money as PTI, a news agency of repute, is doing exact opposite by promoting Yadav’s abominably corrupt henchmen as regional bureau heads in latest round of transfer and posting.
    The senior journalists and employees at a metro city in Eastern Region are gutted to know that a ‘commission-khor’ henchman of Yadav will become their boss in a matter of months.
    In one of our posts in future, we will put out graphic details of ‘Commission-khori’ by that tainted journalist and how he milked his proximity to Yadav to not only make crores of rupees by hosting more than half a dozen union meetings over past two decades, but has been rewarded heavily by the past and present management.

    Hemant Kumar The CEO is weak

    Guru Das New regime in PTI is creating new breed of dalals-in-chief at metros and state capitals, according to sources. Murmur of dissent is being heard from Eastern metropolis. ‘Commission-khor’ will head 100 PTI staffers in Eastern Region. It can get more ridiculous.

    Prem Chandran Sad to see a great institution like PTI going to dogs. Its a no-man’s property, with the newspapers barons who had put in a pittance 60 years ago sitting on the board and taking absolutely no interest in the agency’s upkeep. Razdan, a muscle-flexer journalist and ill-mannered individual, ran the organisation for close to 30 years with his Kashmiri clout and skills in brokering peace with the union. Most PTI bureaux have men sitting without work for years and drawing not only salary but other benefits too for doing nothing more than gossiping through the day, in the aftermath of automation. But for so long? PTI once posted journalists in major cities abroad, but that system has been done away with, mostly but not fully in the past 30 years. PTI picture service, for one, is a disaster. When events take place in the morning, in this age of speedy communication, pictures reach newspaper systems at late in the evening. And, when taking or transmitting pictures cost little today with advances in technology, PTI releases just a few pictures selectively. Hardly any international picture reaches lower grade subscribers. And, often, there are no pictures of national or state events. Mismanagement, possibly, was at its worst for many years. Allowing an individual to sit tight on a chair for three decades and manage or mismanage an institution was itself a bad practice. But, problem is, PTI is nobody’s baby. The directors, drawn from newspapers, are supposedly the presiding deities, but they are silent and disinterested as long as the subscription charges are not raised. The ultimate blame for the present state of affairs should be on the directors, not on an individual who was given a long rope. With its inner strengths and competent jounalists, PTI by now should have been a reputed international agency, but for the disinterest shown by these directors. Any wonder then that union leaders call all the shots in what should be a professionally run entity!

    Sunil Shivdasani Very appropriate. Hope wise counsel will prevail and things might improve. Best wishes

    Prem Chandran A visionary like P Unnikrishnan, former Moscow correspondent, was working wonders as PTI head for a decade, but allegations were that he was hounded out by his successor through use of his Kashmiri clout in Delhi. Directors hardly know what is happening inside PTI as they have their newspapers to care about. They must either give due attention to this institution or exit for good. Their presence is not making any difference to the organisation. Allowing an individual to sit on the top seat for close to 30 years was itself proof of the lack of interest of the directors in shaping a new leadership structure to carry the entity forward. They rather, and in most irresponsible ways, allowed things to drift. After the Modi government came, Arun Jaitley too reportedly played along, rather than helping change situations. Several PTI journalists are world-class because of the grooming the organisation gave them by virtue of its professionalism set in place by the previous masters, the British bosses till about the time when Vallabhbhai Patel called in Indian media houses to put some money and buy the British agency’s operational infrastructure in the country to rename it into Press Trust of India. Time the directors act or the government steps in and set things right. A proper management structure is a matter of first priority. And, who are these directors? They are from such big entities like the Times of India, The Hindu, the Deccan Herald, Malayala Manorama, Matrubhoomi… to name a few …

    GuruDas .
    Dear Prem Chandran and Sunil Shivdasani,
    We appreciate your concerns about sad state of affairs in Press Trust of India.
    Agree with both of you that this great organization had glorious past, but it has surrendered rich legacy under a white-collared terrorist Ex-CEO CEO MK Razdan alias Mahapapi Carpet Razdan alias Rascal Razdan who destroyed everything good associated with it during his sinful long rule.
    Forget about woeful administration structure, Rascal Razdan legitimised editorial corruption and prostitution in PTI in cahoots with ‘bhrashtachari’ union leader MS Yadav.
    Any number of posts have been written about editorial mess in PTI during dark decades of Razdan-Yadav rule.
    Readers should know that courtesy these two rogue individuals, PTI does not have a Standard Operating Procedure nor does it have mechanism to vet performance and ability of journalists even today.
    PTI is the only organization where transfer, posting and promotion of journalists are absolutely arbitrary as a result news operations have been a casualty.
    It was with great expectation and hope for change for good that the board brought in new CEO and EIC to streamline administration and news operations.
    The CEO has delivered to a great extent putting in a new administrative team, but editorial operations are still under a pathetic condition.
    It was heard from editors that the new EIC had expressed unhappiness with Yadav’s interference in news operations and quality of reporting and editing at all level when he took charge earlier this year.
    Six months down the line, like ex-premier Rajiv Gandhi, the new EIC finds surrounded completely surrounded by Yadav and Razdan’s wards all of whom have succeeded in casting a spell of black magic.
    You can make out how serious a management can be about transformation at work place if he is allowed to be dictated by Yadav, whose tales of robbery and loot of union funds are legendary and have been documented graphically.
    Yadav used journalists to make money through a ‘commission-khori’ racket involving journalists mainly from Lucknow, Jaipur and Patna.
    All of you will be surprised to know that one of those notorious ‘commission-khor’ Yadav’s henchman was given red carpet welcome by the EIC and introduced to journalists at editorial meeting despite the fact that the said individual had challenged management’s authority.
    In a matter of a month, you will be get to read tales of that journalist’s corruption with documentary evidence which will shame even neutral people.
    In the end, we can safely say that when the new editorial management is out to promote and reward corrupt journalists even in post-Rascal Razdan era, yo can easily make out the direction in which PTI is headed to.
    You will soon get to read explosive expose about board members.

  5. These contents available on fb post .
    Exactly a year back, I had launched a social media campaign against corruption of rogue Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary Mahavir Singh Yadav by making public these four documents proving conclusively that he should have retired on November 30, 2013.
    Why and how he is continuing to bring embarrassment to the reputed organization too has been exposed by whistleblowers by releasing a host of documents over the past one year.
    I must thank those friends who made available documents of land deal according to which Yadav had got PTI Federation’s land transferred to his son Amit Yadav last year without making any payment to the federation initially.
    Though he is very much alive and General Secretary of PTI Employees Unions, Yadav (64) is completely defanged today and spending his days like a captive king waiting for inevitability of retirement without grace.
    Yadav is to PTI Employees what his close friend Lalu Prasad is to Bihar and its people.
    To conclue this post, I am thankful to friends from within the organization and outside, including a couple of them abroad, for giving me much needed encouragement to expose corruption in PTI union in cahoots with the previous management.
    Ashish mehta:
    I remember during my small yet meaty stint in PTI Jaipur local union collectively wrote against me since I could not get reservation of the then regional engineer. Spoke to madam Padama Alva who sent me a letter saying “my behaviour with staff was not upto the mark”. The then manager who was a mute spectator did not even intervene. That particular day I resigned and understood PTI has no respect for journalists as it is run by illiterAte non-journalists in the name of unions. They participate in meetings organised all over the country where they travel in planes. PTI has also lost its goodwill and credibility in a scenario when we have Twitter, news websites and every other means to get news. It is still painful to see PTI getting into a pothole as I loved this place which has given me ample chance to show my calibre as a journalist but could not hold my hands amidst idiotic complains of unions. Long live unions and keep working hard to dismantle the organisation which used to be the best in news.
    Kundan kumar:
    Glad that someone serving or ex-employee has conscience to do plainspeaking on rampant corruption, most by the rogue Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary Mahavir Singh Yadav and his journalist/non-journalist cronies in Delhi, other Metro cities and money-making state bureaux. Everyone knows that Yadav’s word are final for the management when it comes to transfer, posting, promotion and allowances to the employees. If you are Yadav’s chamcha and professed one, you will get timely promotion and allowances. If you get an additional Special Performance Allowance that means you have successfully hosted union meetings and arranged for prostitutes to make him and others happy. Another additional reward has been posting at creamy centres if you are a journalist. Why should not an organization get a bad name in media and society when its top boss leads senior administrative and editorial officials to attend a function at Yadav’s house for namakaran of his grandson. The chamcha managers of yadav were ordered to attend that function and bring costly gifts. Yadav’s infant grandson received gifts worth crores of rupees in terms of cash and goods. All I mean to say is that Yadav was the CEO, Editor In-Chief, Chief Engineer, Financial Controller, Deputy Chief Accountant, Regional Manager and Bureau Chief, all rolled into one from 1995 and July 2016. If you fail to come up to his assessment and expectation, you will have to suffer and go if you are contractual employee. Pained by Yadav’s atrocities, I launched social media campaign last year and partially succeeded to busting his myth of his being a superpower. I have also written to various central agencies and other important institutions, but without success till date. Wish some more colleagues would have supported me, but it is their choice.
    Ashish mehta:
    Good sir you could draw attention towards a serious epidemic of PTI.
    Pallabh bhattacharya:
    Thanks Ashish for narrative the story. It points to a deep malasie in the agency.thanks Ashish for narrative the story. It points to a deep malasie in the agency.
    Ashish mehta:
    Sir know what all I did as a journalist. But they never valued it. Could not stop myself as things came out.
    Also I was lucky enough to get a job. But what they do to employees especially journalists on the behest of unions is nothing less than brutal murder.
    Pallabh Bhattacharya:
    The rot created in the agency over two decades is largely due to one man aided and abetted by the then CEO.
    Kundan kumar:
    It suited his game plan to arm a puppet union helmed by a rogue and rank corrupt general secretary. Corruption can not be legalised, but the Bhrastachari union leader ran a successful corrupt network from national capital to bureaux because he was patronised by the criminal you have mentioned. No organization declares war on its employees and persecuted thousands of employees, but that man did with help from a consenting union. Union is generally not known to be fond of administration, but the rogue union union had got multiple resolutions adopted at various AGMs/Executive meetings that the said autocrat should continue till life or may be in afterlife too. It sums up my conclusion that corruption was a joint venture between yadav and his benefactor.

  6. यादव के भ्रस्टाचार को उजागर करने के कारण किस तरह से पी टी आई पटना के मैनेजर संजय सिन्हा जो की शुद्ध रूप से यादव के खास चमचों में से एक है ,ने वंहा पर कुंदन कुमार को पी टी आयी प्रबंध तंत्र को चुनौती देते हुए प्रताणित कर रहा है यह नीचे संलग्न पत्राचार से खुद पुस्टि हो रही है और प्रबंध तंत्र चुप्पी साधे बैठा है .

    Please find enclosed a mail to me by Patna Manager Mr. Sanjay Kumar Sinha that he will not take responsibility for my leave application, claim for petty cash as well as journalistic duty from today.
    “The decision of the management to grant sanction to your leave in the month of February 2017 clearly proves that I am administratively not honest towards you,” says Mr. Sinha which if taken on face value vindicates my stand, but I know it is editing-related error when he says ‘not honest towards you’.
    I am looking upto you for direction. Regards,

    To: Kundan Kumar

    Mr Kundan Kumar (Empl no 2210),
    I have been telephonically communicated by RM Kolkata that my higher ups have shared your concern for leave in February 2017 and granted the sanction.
    I had made it clear to you as well to RM, DGM and CAO that the reason and manner in which you were seeking CL leave from me from February 4 and then extending it till February 28 were not in conformity with the laid down rules and on that basis had refused to accept your leave application then.
    In the past including recently in the month of March when you applied for three days leave for personal reason and in a proper manner I readily accepted it.
    The decision of the management to grant sanction to your leave in the month of February 2017 clearly proves that I am administratively not honest towards you.
    I have told RM that from today (March 30, 2017) I am abdicating my all responsibility towards you as a manager of Patna centre where you are posted at present.
    So from today onwards you should address your all administrative issues like leave, claim for petty cash and journalistic duty not to me but directly to RM/DGM/CAO. In pursuance to this I have send your CL leave application for March 31, 2017 to RM Kolkata without putting my signature.
    Sanjay Kumar Sinha, Manager, Patna.

    जंहा तक आप लोग अच्छी तरह से जानते है की यम यस यादव के खिलाफ भ्रष्टाचार के सारे सबूतों को आप लोगों के सामने सोशल साइट के माध्यम से दिखायागया लेकिन तमाम प्रयास के वावजूद आपलोग दुबारा चुनाव में यम यस यादव को चुनाव आधिकारी के ऊपर दबाव बनाकर अनैतिक तरीके से चुन लिए .जबकि आप लोग अच्छी तरह से जानते है की जो भी पैसा आज फेडरेशन को वापस मिला अगर इस विषय में हम लोंगो के द्वारा खासकर कुंदन कुमार के द्वारा निडरता पूर्वक इस भरस्टाचार के मुद्दे को न उठाया गया होता और समय समय पर बहुत से बर्तमान और अवकाश प्राप्त साथियों द्वारा लगातार इस मुहीम को प्रोत्साहित तथा प्रचारित और प्रसारित न किया गया होता तो ऐसा कभी भी संभव नहीं हो पाता और एक भी पैसा फेडरेशन को नहीं मिलता इस मुहीम में उन सभी लोगों को भी बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद है जिन लोगों ने समय समय पर भ्रष्टाचार के सबूतों को उपलब्ध कराया जिससे यह सब संभव हो सका .
    चुनाव के समय आप सभी लोगों को यह कहकर बहकाया गया की दूसरा ग्रुप मैनेजमेंट से मिला हुआ है .जबकि आप लोग बहुत ही अच्छी तरह से जानते है पी टी आयी फेडरेशन कभी भी मैनेजमेंट से अलग होकर नहीं रही और यम यस यादव ने तो हद ही कर दी थी ,पूर्वे सीईओ राज़दान के साथ मिलकर कितनों की जिंदगी बर्बाद कर दी थी आप लोग अच्छी तरह से जानते हैं और आज वही लोग कह रहे है की दूसरा ग्रुप मैनेजमेंट के इसारे पर चल रहा है यह बात कितना हास्यास्पद लगता है .रही बात यादव के कुकृत्यों के बारे में अब आप लोंगो को ज्यादा बताने की जरुरत नहीं है क्योंकि आप लोगों में बहुत से लोग जानकर भी अनजान बने हुए हैं .
    लेकिन आने वाले खतरों से आगाह करना जरुरी है अभी हाल में जो भी फेडरेशन की कार्यवाही बिगत १ अप्रैल को यम यस यादव के नेतृत्व में कानून का उलंघन करके जानबूझकर जो यूनियन के द्वारा प्रदर्शन का कार्य ऑफिस में किया गया है जिसकी पुष्टि खुद फेडरेशन केपदाधिकारियों ने किया है उससे आप सभी लोग परेशानी में आ गए है जो पत्र आप लोंगो को दिया गया है उसे इतने हलके में न लें और अगर आप लोंगो को विश्वास नहीं है तो आप किसी भी कानूनी सलाहकार से राय ले सकते है आपको बता देगा .
    जबकि फेडरेशन के लगभग सभी नेताओं को यह मालूम था की पी टी आयी ऑफिस के अंदर और बाहर प्रदर्शन करने पर इसी यादव के सहयोग से पूर्व सीईओ राज़दान ने कोर्ट से स्टे आर्डर ले रक्खा था.तो जानबूझकर ऐसा क्यों किया.
    और सबसे हास्यास्पद यह है की जो कर्मचारी खुद फर्जी दस्तावेजों के आधार पर पूर्व मैनेजमेंट के रहमों करम द्वारा अप्रत्यासित प्रमोशन ग्रुप १ बी लेकर आजतक नौकरी कर रहा है वही किसी बरिष्ट अधिकारी के खिलाफ प्रदर्शन कर रहा है की इसे बाहर निकालो शर्म आनी चाहिए .
    जनाब पहले आप अगर अपनी नैतिकता का परिचय दिए होते तो आज यह दिन पी टी आयी को नहीं देखना पड़ता न ही ६० साल के ऊपर कोई नौकरी करता न ही कोई बाहर से आता जैसे पी टी आयी शान से चल रही थी और अपने क्षेत्र में एकाधिकार बनाकर रक्खी थी वह कायम रहता लेकिन निहित स्वार्थ में सब कुछ बर्बाद कर दिया .
    दोस्तों अभी भी वक़्त है संभल जाओ और अपने विवेक का परिचय दो आगे बढ़ो.समय बार बार मौका नहीं देता है .आप लोगों को शायद यादव ने यह नहीं बताया की वह बहुत जल्द पी टी आयी को अलविदा कहने वाले है इसलिए ऐसे आदमी को जो जानबूझकर कर्मचारियों को परेशानी में डालना चाहता है नो कॉन्फिडेंस मोशन के जरिये तत्काल बाहर का रास्ता दिखाकर सही नेतृत्व को चुने और अपना और अपने साथियों का भविष्य सुरक्षित करने की कोशिश करे.

  8. The following contents available on Kundankumar fb post

    Corruption in public life has caught imagination of all stakeholders and efforts are underway everywhere to eradicate this scourge.
    With blessings and documentary evidences of many friends at my work place that I launched crusade against corruption and other crimes of Mahavir Singh Yadav, General Secretary of Federation of PTI Employees Unions since 1994.
    While our efforts did bear fruits with several trusted associates of the rogue and corrupt union leader publicly questioning him for broad daylight robbery of union funds, including federation land deal in which he and his son stand to make at least two crore if they decide to sell 200 sq meter land that they fraudulently purchased from federation last year at measly sum of Rs. 74 lakh.
    Yadav was suspended by the then Federation President and barred from contesting the union elections last month, but the rogue union leader manipulated election process and successfully contested and retained general secretary’s post for perhaps his last term.
    It has learnt that a senior federation officebearer has served legal notice to Yadav and others challenging his elections.
    We will discuss it later.
    However, our immediate concern is the 63 year-old Yadav is going to represent wage board employees at the staff council meeting tomorrow.
    Facing mountain of corruption charges, Yadav have backed out from attending staff council meeting and nominated anyone with clean image to represent him if he has had moral turpitude for what all he has done.
    With his own integrity under cloud, this rogue union leader can not be expected to extract benefits for employees from authorities.
    It is still not late for you, Mr. Yadav…withdraw yourself from the list of union representatives invited for staff council meeting on moral ground though we know that morality is not in your dictionary.

  9. Dear A G Mohanan, Ramdos, Shivanunni, Jayaram, Shankar Reddy, Girishan and Joseph – newly-elected council members from South,
    We have highest respect for you all seasoned Federation of PTI Employees Unions leaders for keeping the flag if trade union flying in the country’s leading news agency for years.
    In couple of days time, all of you will be flying to Darjeeling to take part in federation AGM where elections will be held for the first time in 15 years to elect new team of officebearers and hopefully the list will not have name of one Mahavir Singh Yadav, the rogue and corrupt federation general secretary in the new team.
    I am sure you know about the shocking federation property scam in yadav with help of trusted chamchas had transferred property worth Rs. 2 crore at current market price to his son Amit Yadav and another.
    A number of other scams involving Yadav and family members have beem exposed over the past six months due to which he has lost monstrous aura and invincibility so much so that his panel could win only seven council seats from Delhi and lost local unit to rivals.
    Despite being cut to size significantly, we learn from sources that he considers all of you as votebank and claims that all of of you will swim or sink with him in federation elections.
    It deserves condemnation in strongest words that yadav thinks that fellow elected council members from South are mere votebanks and can be driven like a herd of grazing cattles.
    The upcoming federation election is your opportunity to turn the tables on yadav.
    Hope you will exercise your votes in larger public interest and that of federation and about 500 wage board employees.

    • it is with the reference to your earlier post you had said somewhere that m s yadav will not win the contest of federation. What happened now, where are you, he won with great dignity and glory. you were doing nonscene for the last five to six month and abusing him continually on the post. shame on you. now it has proved that you are the one who is most filthy, cunning, rogue and rascal man in this post. who were trying to tempt the innocent and Gullible people, by their own fabricated scripted stories.

      • At the outset, I must express my respect for democratic process of election through which 44 delegates/council members elected Federation of PTI Employees Unions officebearers through secret ballot at the Annual General Body (AGM) at Darjeeling yesterday.
        Having said that, I must conceded that our crusade against corruption in the union has fallen flat for the time being with the rogue and corrupt federation general secretary Mercenary Singh Yadav alias Mahavir Singh Yadav retaining his post by a comfortable margin.
        It has been learnt that Yadav will serve his final one-year term as the Federation General Secretary and bow out at the end of this year.
        I am yet to come to terms with Yadav’s election as the election officer had put his candidature on hold directing him to seek a favorable court order if he was to be allowed to contest again in the backdrop of his suspension for ‘anti-union’ activities and shady federation property deal.
        According to reports, Yadav and his key aides utilized 12 hours ahead of yesterday’s election to successfully woe the voters, namely those from South and East, on way to victory which had seemed improbable till two days back.
        In his thanks giving speech post-victory, Yadav expectedly hit out at me in crude and vulgar language and in the process send out a veiled message to the management as to how he used to dominate previous dispensation dictate terms on transfer, posting and promotionn of employees, journalist and non-journalist.
        I am not surprised at his boastful demeanour and I have been making these charges for past six months
        I have been also told that armed with a resolution against me that was passed on his instruction by 12 of 15 employees of Patna bureaux, Yadav will seek stern action against me for exposing his legendary tales of corruption, fraud and forgery.
        Yadav (63) has reportedly promised to return Rs. 90 lakh of which a major chunk accrued from sale of federation land to his son Amit Yadav and Sourabh Kumar, son of another employee Shri Krishan, in the federation account.
        This fund has been lying for years in souvenir account under direct supervision of yadav.
        So what is take away from your election as Federation General Secretary for another term ? Do we see it as a clean chit to you and your lengthy list of corruption? I know that you have dangled fear of job loss to get the employees to vote for you.
        I went to Patna office this morning and asked an employee to sign on a resolution despite having excellent relation with me for almost seven years of my stay in Patna…He told me that he was asked to put his signature on the resolution as any move to dislodge yadav will lead to job loss.
        Drunk with poison of power, I know you will get after me by resorting to all possible tricks, but I too will not be sitting idle and recalibrate my action plan against your corruption.
        In the process, if I go down fighting I will be the only casualty, but if I succeed in my mission it will make headlines and many heads in the union may roll.
        Let me place it on record that my social media campaign against you was not my efforts alone, but colleagues from all four metros and a dozen state capital centres had provided valuable documents to nail you on the basis of documentary proofs and not hearsay.
        I have faith in those colleagues to get back soon with fresh documents again to launch a decisive surgical strike against you soon.

  10. This is for English-speaking friends of South, West and East India particularly those who are abreast with ever-flowing crusade against corrupt and criminal activities of the rogue and PTI federation’s underworld don MS Yadav.
    Friends, stung with a PTI union member’s sustained campaign since July/August last against Yadav’s corruption, Kumar’s colleague Sanjay Sinha, who is yadav-appointee manager at Patna bureau, recently created FB and email account in the name of Guru Vaani to run down Kumar.
    The lid over Sanjay Sinha’s covert operation against Kumar was blown up by Yadav himself, who was supposed to the beneficiary of Sinha’s services.
    Sinha, perhaps on January 28 or 29 called up Yadav on his mobile phone to apprise about the fake FB and email accounts opened to attack Kumar. After Yadav consented, Sinha asked his master to direct Sunil Gaur to accept Guru Vaani’s friendship request to spread the content against Kumar.
    So far it is learnt that Sinha has scripted three posts and got it translated by his henchman Anwar Sayeed in Hindi and posted on FB and to centres through Guru Vaani email accounts.
    The readers should know that Anwar Sayeed is a PTI-Bhasha journalist in Senior Correspondent grade on contract. It should also be clear to the readers that he is a die hard loyalist of Yadav and all those persons who held manager’s post in Patna. His capacity to oblige potential benefactors is legendary about which management will be apprised in due course of time.
    Now coming to the social media war between pro and anti-yadav group is a fair game and Kundan Kumar’a adversaries are well within right to attack him in whatever democratic manners.
    The same privilege vests with Kumar who has had audacity to carry out social media campaign through his own FB account and he has been doing so for most than six months.
    Now coming back to Sinha’s vicious outbursts against, Guru Das , on feedback receives from various sources would like to make following points about the incumbent Patna Manager, who is a hardcore yadav loyalist :
    1.Sinha has been a manager at Patna since October 2012 and the deterioration in quality and quantity of news output from here has been alarmingly sharp because self-promotion and money has been his twin goals as manager.
    2. Sinha has distinction to host highest number of federation AGM/Executive meetings among any PTI manager and journalist in India in post-independence era. In the past 10-12 years, he has hosted at least 10 federation meetings in Bihar and Himachal Pradesh and two years back he hosted meeting in Shimla with benevolence of the tainted HP Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh so to speak of his prowess to host union meetings.
    3. Dear readers, you should know or may be knowing that you can earn upto Rs. 10 lakh from one union meeting through commission on advertisement and sharing left over booty with yadav. So Sinha’s undeclared income from hosting union meetings alone must not be less than two crores by now.
    4. In Bihar, the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, with whom Sanjay Sinha, has warm relations over two decades, alone has santioned Rs. 21 lakh for federation meetings since 2005. Take out Sinha’s commission at the rate of 20 per cent and it comes at Rs. 4 lakh +.
    5. In the bargain, Sinha gives full publicity to the Chief Minister and does it all by himself or through his trusted manpower. A reporter dare not touch Nitish Kumar’s copy if Sinha is on duty. So to speak of his integrity.
    6. Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha and Super 30 founder Anand Kumar are two other prominent benediciaries of Sinha’ concept of committed press. He files stories on these two luminaries even if the two visiting abroad.
    7. The readers and PTI management should know that there is quid pro quo in deal between Sanjay Sinha and Anand kumar. Sinha has accused Kundan Kumar of giving bad education to his son. Now the world should know that Sinha’s son studied in Anand coaching institute for free for two years or more in lieu of publicity to Anand Kumar.
    8. Sinha’s predecessor late Ajay Kumar’s son too had received tutorials at Anand kumar’s coaching institute. ( to be continued……)

    • Sanjay Sinha, real operative behind FB account Guru Vaani (part 2)
      9. The news output and work culture at Patna centre has slumped alarmingly under Sinha’s stewardship as he spends most of his time on PR activities and hopping offices of regional and national news channel to participate in discussion.
      10. It will be sound like music to ears of PTI management that Sinha had spent couple of hours on news channel on the day assembly polls results were announce.
      It speaks volume of his commitment to work. The management had foresight to take coverage of Bihar election results under its absolute control ignoring all inputs from Patna centre.
      11. Sinha casts aspersions on colleagues’ professional ability an contributions, but conveniently glosses over the fact that he shares meaty and money spinning assignments with Bhasha reporter Anwar Sayeed and and not with his colleagues in English bureau.
      12. If so, management should check assignment register for duration Sinha has been manager at Patna. Even most of stringers report to him directly instead of giving news to reporters.
      13. All major beats like Nitish Kumar, JD (U), Lalu Prasad, RJD, Railways, Ramvilas Paswan, NCP leader Tariq Anwar and Pappu Yadav are handled directly by Sinha or his trusted man Anwar Sayeed.
      Even contractual reporters were deprived meaty assignments as a result two of them quit, while another is struggling for success or say survival.
      14 Sinha is a selfish and self-centered individual who cares for own benfit as he sits in a sprawling and clean chamber equipped with separate STD-equipped telephone, printer and related facilities, but has deliberately made editorial room a crowded place where reporters have to share space with six individuals at a time. There is a telephone in editorial but it is shared by employees of all department through extension lines. Management should also note that reporters have to use sheets of press releases to get print of any document. Shame on you all.
      15. Management should also get hygine and cleanliness checked in editorial room through surprise inspection to find out facts.
      16. Sinha through Guru Vaani posts bemoans about various things about Kundan Kumar, but conveniently ignores the fact that it is his duty to keep the flocks through and get best out of colleagues, but when it comes to practice he does exactly opposite.
      17. Patna PTI employees have hosted feast on seven occasions in past two months that throws sufficiently light on work culture. One of those lunch was approved in writing by Sanjay Sinha which is not an established practice.
      18. Friends, if any of you want to find out about real colour and character of Sanjay Sinha, feel free to speak to two young editors of PTI in Delhi who had unitedly thwarted Sinha’s national aspiration seven years ago.
      19. But for providence like death of his predecessor Ajay Kumar and patronage of MS Yadav, even the managerial assignment at Patna would have been a distant dream for Sinha let alone becoming PTI’s Beijing correspondent or RM (West) with his two ambitious targets going up in smoke as due to his sworn loyalty for Yadav at a time there is a battle raging in PTI union.
      Lastly, sources tell us that there is a war taking place in Patna for days and it will have consequences for all sides.
      It is upto the employees on rival sides to withdraw missles targeted at each other or die together as happens in war, smirmishes.
      Pls keep reading this wall for more updates.

    • I always thought that I would be the bigger supporter of m.s. yadav but I was wrong you are the biggest opponent of him. I left my fight with you but this is also true m.s. yadav is genuine, honest, gentle and well wisher of the workers.
      I think you are crazy that why you are behind him continually, nobody can explain you.

  11. Mr. John Gonsalves
    Federation of PTI Employees Unions
    Dear Mr. Gonsalves,
    We are writing this post to alert you about a grave threat of violence at the upcoming Fderation AGM at Darjeeling.
    Reports coming from sources in the federation’ affiliate units like Delhi, Lucknow, Patna, Jaipur indict that the rogue and corrupt federation general secretary (suspended) MS Yadav will let loose his goons on fellow delegates perceived to be opposed to them in order to vitiate election process and push federation into some sort of legal tangle.
    Everywhere Yadav’s men are threatening to repeat violence at Kanpur AGM in 2002 at Darjeeling if yadav does not have his way in election of his choice of office bearers.
    What happened in Delhi yesterday ( show cause notices served to newly-elected council members Arvind Kumar Singh, Md. Mehruddin Khan and Jagmohan Rawat by yadav camp) is part of yadav’s sinister plan to resort to violence at Darjeeling.
    Similarly, Patna centre is too all set to witness violence in the office premises in a matter as Yadav’s trusted man in Patna Sanjay Sinha presided over the union meeting where an oral resolution was adopted to seek suspension of Kundan Kumar for running social media campaign against yadav.
    The meeting was attende by 14 out of 15 employees with Kundan Kumar abstaining from it.
    At the said union meetings, Sanhay Sinha came with a scripted agenda and virtually compelled all members present there to speak in chorus seeking whatever action against Kundan Kumar.
    Let us place it on records yet again that Kundan Kumar has expressed grave threat to life by Sanjay Sinha or goons at his behest during his 7-hour duty in office of outside the office on assignment.
    Leaving this issue aside for time being, we request Federation president to take a hard look on invite to state unit office bearers, barring elected council meetings, as they are the people who will indulge in violence at yadav’s call at Darjeeling.
    God forbidding, if some thing untoward happens at Darjeeling, the question will arise as to why federation or organizers, Kolkata unit, invited non-voting members for the meeting in the place?
    Secondly, why should members pay train or air fair of those state level office bearers who don’t have role in federation elections as they are simply going to Darjeeling for good food, drinks, sight seeing and gifts.
    Beware guys from Kolkata who are organizing the Federatiin AGM at Darjeeling.
    In view of grave threat to law and order situation at Darjeeling Federation AGM, we request federation to withdraw invite to non-voting members from states for smooth conduct of federation meeeting.
    Mr. Gonsalves, please rise to the occasion ans neutralise Yadav’s nefarious designs to sabotage the upcoming federation meeting at Darjeeling.

      गुरू दास के प्रिय पाठकों गुरू वाणी के पिछले अंक में आपको चूहा रूपी गुरू दास के महान लेखक के चाल-चरित्र, कुकृत्य और दागदार छवि के कुछ पहलुओं पर प्रकाष डाला था पर परंतु अभी भी इस महान नकाबपोष लेखक के काले इतिहास के बहुत से पन्नों से पर्दा उठना अभी बाकी है और उससे पाठकगण को अवगत कराया जाना जरूरी है ।
      इस पोस्ट में गुरू वाणी पिछले छह महीने से झूठ और अनर्गल प्रलाप करते हुए अब एक मोटा खुजली वाला वानर का रूप धारण कर लेने वाले इस महान लेखक के कुछ और काले कारनामों से अवगत कराने जा रहे हैं ।
      आप सभों को मालूम है कि किसी को भी अपनी काली करतूत और घृणित चहरे को लोगां से छुपाना के लिए नकाबपोष बनना या मूंह छुपाना पडता है और यही स्थिति गुरू दास के इस महान लेखक की है।
      दुसरे पर बेबुनियाद आरोप लगाने से पहले यह खुजली वाला वानर अपनी आदत के अनुसार कुछ भी लिखने के पूर्व चूहे के बिल में किसी प्रकार से अपना मूंह घुसाने में सफल तो हो जाता है जिससे उसका घृणित चेहरा दिखाई तो नहीं पडता पर इस दानवी दैत्य कद काया वाले का हिप सहित षरीर का अन्य भाग बाहर रह जाने के कारण उसकी पहचान स्पष्ट रूप हो जाती है ।
      जैसा कि गुरू वाणी के पिछले पोस्ट में वर्णन किया जा चुका है कि ये महानुभाव कैसे स्वयं को जन्म देने वाले और चलना सिखाने वाले अपने पिता को जलील और अपमानित करने में कोई कोर कसर नहीं छोडी है इसलिए यह स्वतः चिरितार्थ होता है कि जो अपने बाप का न हुआ वह भला कैसे किसी और कैसे हो सकता है ।
      कहा जाता है कि जिस संस्थान में आप काम करते हैं उसके षीर्ष पद पर आसीन व्यक्ति घर के अभिभावक तूल्य होता है पर अपनी फितरत के अनुसार आसतीन के सांप रूपी इस अकृतज्ञ व्यक्ति ने पीटीआई के पूर्व मुख्य कार्यकारी पदाधिकारी श्री एम के राजदान के रिटायर के होने पर उनके साथ भी वैसा ही व्यवहार किया जिस प्रकार से यह अपने पिता के साथ करता रहा है।
      राजदान जी जबतक पीटीआई के मुख्य कार्यकारी पदाधिकारी के पद पर आसीन रहे ये महानुभाव उन्हें महिमा मंडित करने के साथ और अपने सभी सहकर्मियों से कहते फिरते थे पीटीआई में वह सबकी मां बहन करेगा पर उनके (राजदान जी) बारे में कोई आपत्तिजनक षब्द मूंह से नहीं निकालेंगे पर उनके संस्था से जाते ही उनपर भी प्रहार करना और तरह तरह के आरोप लगाना षुरू कर दिया और अब पटना के अपने सभी सहकर्मियों से कहता रहता है कि पूर्व में राजदान जी पर प्रहार न करना उसकी रणनीति का हिस्सा था।
      इसमें कोई संदेह नहीं कि राजदान जी के संरक्षण में पीटीआई ने बहुत सी उंचाईयां छूई है और किसी की विदाई की बेला पर दुष्मन भी प्रषंसा के दो षब्द बोलता है पर इस अकृतज्ञ और आसतीन के सांप के द्वारा उनपर प्रहार करना और तरह तरह के आरोप मढने को अवसरवाद, खुदगर्जी और नीचता के आचरण के अलावा क्या कहा जा सकता है ।
      अफसोस है कि पीटीआई के पूर्व मुख्य कार्यकारी पदाधिकारी इस व्यक्ति की कुत्सित मानसिकता और नापाक इरादों को नहीं भांप पाए और अपने कार्यकाल के दौरान इसकी घिनौनी हरकतों के बावजूद उसे माफ करते गए जो कि उनका बडप्पन था।
      यह खुजली वाला बंदर अपने को बुद्धजीवी और बहुत ही विद्वान पत्रकार की श्रेणी में मानता है और दूसरों को नाकाबिल बताने में कोई कोर कसर नहीं छोडता जो कि ैअपने मूंह मिया मिठठू बनना ै मुहावरे को चिरितार्थ करता है पर इनकी विद्वुता का अंदाजा इसी से लगाया जा सकता है कि पटना में ये जब से ये विराजमान हैं एक भी ऐसी कोई एक्सकुलुसिव खबर नहीं ला पाएं हैं जो कि राष्ट्रव्यापी प्रभाव रखता हो ।
      अपने दूसरे सहकर्मियों की कार्यषैली पर प्रष्न उठाने वाले और अपने को तीस मार खां साबित करने में लगे रहने वाले इस महान लेखक का अपने दायित्व के प्रति समर्पण का अंदाजा इससे ही लगाया जा सकता है कि कार्यालय पहुंचने पर ये जिला संवाददाताओं द्वारा प्रेषित छोटी खबरें यथा एक मरे दो घायल को प्रेषित करके अपनी उपस्थिति दर्ज कर अपने दायित्व के निवर्हन की मात्र औपचारिकता ही पूरी करते हैं ।
      एक पत्रकार के तौर अपनी लेखनी के जरिए इनकी ख्याति तो इसी से समझी जा सकती है कि पीटीआई पटना के इतिहास में पहली दफा हुआ कि बिहार के मुख्यमंत्री नीतीष कुमार और उनकी पार्टी जदयू ने उनके द्वारा प्रेषित एक खबर को तथ्य से परे और दुराग्रहपूर्ण बताते हुए उसके बारे में लिखित षिकायत स्थानीय पीटीआई प्रबंधन से की थी ।
      यह बात पटना के सभी मीडिया संस्थान में चर्चा का विषय बने के रहने के साथ अब इसे नाकारात्मक और पक्षपातपूर्ण पत्रकारिता के उदाहरण के तौर पर पेष किया जाता है ।
      खबरों के संप्रेषण में इनके द्वारा लापरवाही बरतने के कारण संस्था को फजीहत झेलने का यह ताजा उदाहरण गत 18 वर्ष जुलाई का है जो कि उनके द्वारा जदयू से निलंबित मनोरमा देवी के पार्टी से निलंबन को लेकर संप्रेषित एक खबर है जिसको लेकर मुख्यमंत्री श्री नीतीष कुमार ने पीटीआई पटना कार्यालय के नंबर पर कई बार फोन कर स्थानीय मैनेजर श्री संजय सिन्हा से बात करनी चाही पर उनके अवकाष पर रहने के कारण मुख्यमंत्री की उनसे बात नहीं हो पायी थी।
      अपने को षेर बताने वाले और बातबात पर दूसरों को ललकारने वाले ये विद्वान लेखक इस दौरान भीगी बिल्ली बने हुए थे और स्थानीय पीटीआई प्रबंधक जो कि पटना के बाहर थे उन्हें फोन कर मामले को रफा दफा करने और सुलझा लेने का गुहार करते रहे ।
      अगले दिन जदयू के प्रदेष अध्यक्ष वषिष्ठ नारायण सिंह द्वारा उसके बारे में स्थानीय मैनेजर से लिखित षिकायत की गयी जिसके बाद पटना लौटने पर संजय सर को मुख्यमंत्री से मुलाकात कर इस बारे में सफाई देनी पडी थी ।
      अपने दूसरे सहकर्मियों की कर्तव्य निष्ठा पर प्रष्न उठाने वाले ये महानुभाव स्वयं अपनी संस्था के प्रति कितने कतर्व्यनिष्ठ और समर्पित हैं इसका अंदाजा हाल में प्रधानमंत्री की बिहार यात्रा :हाजीपुर का कार्यक्रमः जिसे कवर करने की जिम्मेवारी इन्हें सौंपी गयी थी और मात्र इन्हीं के नाम का पास बना हुआ था, अंतिम समय में बीमारी का बहाना बनाकर प्रधानमंत्री का कार्यक्रम कवर करने नहीं गए ।
      ये महानुभाव जो कि कार्यकारी संपदाक श्री चंद्रषेखर जी से प्रधानमंत्री का कार्यक्रम कवर करने नहीं जा पाने के बहाने के तौर से कहा था कि उनके कमर में गंभीर दर्द होने के कारण वे चिलने फिरने तक की स्थिति में नहीं है पर एक घंटे बाद ही दफ्तर पहुंचकर यहां के कर्मियों से कहा था कि आज मैंने पीटीआई प्रबंधन को मजा चखा दिया। इस बात का गवाह पूरा दफ्तर है ।
      पीटीआई फेडरेषन के महासचिव एम एस यादव जिनकी केवल पीटीआई कर्मियों नहीं बल्कि देष की पूरी मीडिया बिरादरी के लिए संघर्ष जिसमें वेजबोर्ड के लिए सडक से लेकर सुप्रिम कोर्ट तक का संघर्ष भी षामिल है, को नकारा नहीं जा सकता पर उनकी आलोचना में लगे आप महापुरुष की प्रषंसा में फिर से वही पंक्ति दोहरा रहा हूं कि “ राम नाम ( फेडरेषन के नेत्त्व में मिले वेज बोर्ड और एरियर की प्राप्ति के प्रयास में आलसी) भोजन ( वेजबोर्ड के अनुसार मिला वेतन अपने बैंक खाता में पहुंचा या नहीं इसके लिए बार-बार पता लगाना औरएरियर की प्राप्ति के लिए आतुर ) में होषियार, तुलसी जी जैसे जीव को बार बार धिक्कार “।
      अपने कुकृत्यों के कारण पीटीआई प्रबंधन के लिए आंखों की किरकिरी बन चुके इस महानुभाव पर जब जब पीटीआई प्रबंधक का चाबुक चला तो अपने को षेर बताने ये अकृत्ज्ञ प्राणी बकरी तरह मेमियाते हुए फेडरेषन षरणम गच्छामी की मुद्रा में होने के साथ अपने बचाव के लिए फेडरेषन महासचिव के नतमस्तक होकर उनकी गणेष परिकर्मा करने लगते हैं पर अपना हित सधने के बाद फेडरेषन और यादव जी की आलोचना करने तथा आसतीन के सांप की तरह डंसना षुरू कर देते हैं ।
      जिस थाली में खाना, उसी थाली में छेद करने के मुहावरे को चिरितार्थ करने वाले ये महान लेखक हाल के दिनों में अपने को चुनावी रणनीतिकार प्रषांत किषोर के तौर पर पेष करते हुए इधर उधर लोगां को फोन कर फेडरेषन महासचिव एम एस यादव को अपदस्थ करने के लिए मुहिम छेड रखी है ।
      वे पाठकगण जो कि जिस डाली पर बैठने, उसी को काटने वाले इस अकृतज्ञ की बातों में तनिक आ जा रहे हैं उन्हें फिर से एक बार स्मरण करना चाहिए कि जो अपने बाप का नहीं हुआ वह दूसरां का कैसे हो सकता है ।
      इनकी यह सब मुहिम अपनी पटना सहित किसी किसी बडे पीटीआई सेंटर के प्रबंधक के पद पर आसीन होने की मंषा को फलीभूत करने की है जिसमें इन्हें कभी भी कामयाबी नहीं मिलेगी क्योंकि इनके चरित्र और इतिहास भूगोल को पूरा पीटीआई भली भांति जनता है ।
      सहकर्मियों के साथ इनके आचरण को इसी बात से समझा जा सकता है कि वह छोटे पदाधिकारी और नन जर्नलिस्ट को हमेषा संस्था के लिए बोझ बताते रहते हैं और रावण की तरह अहंकार भरे स्वर में कहते रहते हैं जिस दिन हमारी सत्ता आएगी एक एक को ठिकाने लगा और लगवा देंगे ।
      फेडरेषन से जुडे सभी कर्मियों को फेडरेषन से यह मांग करनी चाहिए कि इस आसतीन के सांप और जिस थाली में खाना, उसी में छेद करने वाले इस महानुभाव की फेडरेषन के खिलाफ लगातार जारी मुहिम के मददेनजर दार्जिलिंग की आम बैठक में इसकी सदस्यता खत्म करने का निर्णय लेना चाहिए और ठीक उसी तरह निकाल बाहर किया जाना चाहिए जैसा दिल्ली में महिला सहकर्मियां के साथ दुर्व्यवहार करने पर इन्हें लात मारकर दिल्ली से निकाला गया था ।

      Hemant Kumar It is learnt that a manager in Indore at the behest of his union bosses in Delhi had got an employee beaten up by his goons. The victim had raised his voice against irregularities committed by the Federation leaders and this irked them so they directed the manager to bet him in the office room. The management should inquire and take them to taSK

      Kundan Kumar Pls tell the organizers to reconsider invite to non-voting state officebearers in view of surcharged atmosphere in federation and state units. The expenditure on hosting state unit presidents and general secretaries is a drain on resources. What if these globetrotting delegates who attend union meetings at exotic locations for good food, booze, guided tour and gifts start assaulting delegates of rival faction.

  12. Friends,
    All hell has broken loose in PTI Workers Union, Delhi, an affiliated unit of Federation of PTI Employees Unions with the local unit leadership show causing three of its council members, namely Arvind Kumar Singh, Md. Mehruddin Khan and Jagmohan Rawat.
    The show cause notice is part elaborate and mischievous plan by rogue and corrupt federation general secretary Mercenary Singh Yadav, to prevent these newly-elected council members from either contesting federation elections or voting for those candidates perceived to opposed to yadav and his underworld goorgas.
    As per the game plan laid bare by the 63 year-old yadav, Arvind, Mehruddin and Jagmohan are likely to be suspended tomorrown over fabricated charge of ‘anti-union’ activities.
    The stupid yadav gang thinks that they will have their way this time too in union elections, but are forgetting that their spiritual father mahapapi carpet razdan is no longer around to bail his out his illegitimate children, including yadav.
    At this stage when scrutiny of nomination papers been completed and the final list of candidates put on notice board, yadav is bound to fail in his futile exercise to subvert the election process.
    Dear members of PTI Workers Union, Delhi, please don’t play in the trap set up by suspended Federation General Secretary and assert your new-found freedom to save both the local union and federation.
    Many of you know that yadav may be sacked from service by March as he has manipulated official records with regard to Date of Birth certification with help from ever-patronizing ex-ceo mahapapi carpet razdan.
    Yadav’s birth date (14/11/1953) has been time and again posted by us on social media and management implored to take action against yadav.
    Lastly, pls don’t sully your hands and conscience by playing in the hands of yadav who wants to dismember and destroy the federation and union.
    Like mahapapi carpet razdan, who never promoted second line of leadership to take over from him at sone stage, yadav too wants to finish off the federation before he goes.
    Gladly for your, this rogue ex-leader has been barred (almost) from contesting the federation elections and we don’t think he has guts to seek remedial measures from courts as he is himself facing grave charges of embezzlement of federation funds and anti-union activities.
    In this background, we urge you all office bearers of Delhi PTI Workers Union to unite and call Yadav’s bluffs and rally behind your candidates on federation posts elections for which will be held on February 8 next at Darjeeling.

    माननीय पाठकगण
    फेडरेशन ऑफ़ पी टी आई इम्प्लायीज़ यूनियंस के बर्खास्त महासचिव यम यस यादव के करप्शन के खिलाफ शुरू की गयी लड़ाई अब अपने अंजाम के करीब पहुँच रही है .जैसा की आप लोग जानते है की यादव ने १.२४ करोड़ रूपये का हेरफेर फेडरेशन की जमीन /मकान के खरीद फरोख्त में किया है.हमारे महान नेता यम यस यादव ने बड़े ही निर्लज्जता पूर्वक फेडरेशन की प्रॉपर्टी को अपने बेटे के नाम करा लिया और उसका दुष्परिणाम आप सभी लोंगो के सामने है ,इस करप्शन के खुलासे के बाद और फेडरेशन प्रेजिडेंट जॉन गोनसाल्वेस द्वारा यादव के खिलाफ कार्यवाही को देखते हुए फेडरेशन ऑफ़ पी टी आई इम्प्लॉयीज यूनियंस के चुनाव अधिकारी ने यादव को महासचिव के पद पर लड़ने के लिए तब तक अयोग्य घोषित कर दिया है जब तक की यादव किसी सम्बंधित कोर्ट से आदेश लेकर नहीं आते है .
    लेकिन बात यंहा यादव की ही केवल नहीं है यादव के करप्शन के खुलासे की शुरुवात पी टी आई पटना केंद्र से जुलाई /अगस्त २०१६ में शुरू की गयी थी ,प्रमाण सहित आरोप और खुलासे से यादव के करीबी लोंगों को सांप सूंघ गया था लेकिन पिछले हफ्ते से लोग जगे है और कई तरह के अनर्गल बाते केवल कुंदन कुमार के बारे में लिख रहे है जिसका कोई आधार नहीं है अभी हाल में लिखा गया है की वह बंदर जैसा है “,लेकिन इन लोंगो को शायद यह याद नहीं है की रावण की लंका में अकेले एक ही बंदर ने आग लगाई थी और पूरी लंका जल गयी थी ” और उसके बाद सम्पूर्ण राक्षश समाज का अंत हुआ था .
    इस सिलसिले को आगे बढ़ाते हुए हम कुछ ठोस जानकारी के साथ जो मुझे मेरे मेल पर भेजा गया है और कुछ फेस बुक पोस्ट द्वारा पता चला है आप लोंगो को पटना पी टी आई केंद्र के प्रबंधक संजय सिन्हा के क्रिया कलापों (कुकृत्यों) के बारे में बताना चाहता हूँ .जिससे आप लोंगों की लगभग सारी शंकाएं दूर हो जाएँगी .
    आप लोंगो को जानकर हैरानी इसलिए नहीं होगी की जो भी हम बता रहे है वह आप लोग अच्छी तरह से जानते है की संजय सिन्हा यादव के सबसे ख़ास और वफादार सिपहसालार रहे है और इनको फेडरेशन की मीटिंग करने में महारत हासिल है पिछले १०-१२ सैलून में इन्होंने राजगीर ,पटना,शिमला,जैसे जगहों,पर कम से कम ८ मीटिंगे कराई है और आप लोंगों को यह जानकर आश्चर्य होगा की फेडरेशन की भब्य मीटिंग करने के लिए २० से ४० लाख तक का कलेक्शन होता है और वह भी बिना किसी लेखा जोखा के और ऊपर से कलेक्शन में २०% का खुला कमीशन मिलता है जो सरकारी और गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं से लिया जाता है संजय सिन्हा को कितनी सैलरी मिलती है यह पी टी आई को मालूम है जब की इनकी इस समय की कीमत लगभग ५ करोड़ है पैसा कंहा से आया कैसे आया यह तो इनके धन कमाने की बात है .
    यह महाशय यम यस यादव के अलावा बिहार के मुख्यमंत्री नितीश कुमार ,अभिनेता शत्रुघ्न सिन्हा और सुपर ३० के संचालक आनंद कुमार की प्रचार प्रसार के लिए कुछ भी कर सकते है चाहे यह छुट्टी पर रहे या देश के किसी कोने में इन लोंगों की प्रचार प्रसार की खबर संजय सिन्हा खुद ही चलाएंगे ऐसा क्यों है आप लोग खुद समझदार है.
    संजय सिन्हा पी टी आई के मेनेजर के अलावा एक अच्छे लेखक भी है और इनकी दो किताबे भी प्रकाशित हो चुकी है जिसमे एक पुस्तक का बिमोचन पूर्व गृह सचिव आर के सिंह और दूसरी पुस्तक का बिमोचन अभिनेता /संसद सदस्य शत्रुघ्न सिन्हा ने किया है इस उपलब्धि के बावजूद इस महानुभाव की जुबान पर हमेशा लगभग लाड ,गाड़ ,और झांट जैसे प्रचलित शब्दों से ही शुरू होता है .
    और रही इनके आफिस क्रिया कलाप और नेतृत्व की तो इनके लिए अपना स्वार्थ ही सर्वोपरि है और यही धयान में रखकर यह अपना निजी और व्वसायिक रूपी सारा काम करते है,जिससे पी टी आई का जो नियमित कार्य है प्रभावित होता है ,जैसा की आप लोंगो को पूर्व में ही हमने बताया था की संजय सिन्हा पी टी आई ऑफिस में पिछले ढाई महीने में ७ पार्टी (भोज कार्यक्रम) करा चुके है.
    ऐसा यह कुंदन कुमार को नीचा दिखाने के लिए करते थे जिसकी सूचना कुंदन कुमार ने लिखित रूप में भी पी टी आई प्रशाशन को बताया था लेकिन सिन्हा महाशय से जब कुछ नहीं पूछा गया तो यह अपने घमंड में कोई परवाह किये बगैर अपने इन सभी कार्यक्रमों को आगे बढ़ाते रहे.
    जबकि इस महाशय को यह नहीं अहसास है की जब कोई कार्यवाही मैनेजमेंट करेगा तो इनसे पूछ कर नहीं करेगा और जब भी कार्यवाही होगा इसका असर व्यापक होगा खैर संजय सिन्हा जैसे लोग जो यम यस यादव के रहमो करम पर यंहा तक पहुंचे है इसी गलत फहमी में जीते है जिसका इनको पूरा अधिकार है .रहमो करम मैं इसलिए कह रहा हूँ की यह जब दिल्ली में थे तो यह डेल्ही ब्यूरो में जाना चाहते थे लेकिन इनको उस सेक्शन में एंट्री नहीं मिली जो संपादकीय बिभाग दिल्ली को अच्छी तरह से मालूम है क्यों नहीं मिली थी .
    रही बात जो मैं अब आप लोंगों को बताना चाहता हूँ. की पी टी आई पटना केंद्र की स्थिति बेहद तनावपूर्ण है और कभी भी कोई अप्रिय वारदात हो सकती है जिसका जिक्र कुंदन कुमार ने अपने पोस्ट और मैनेजमेंट को भी शायद बताया है हो सकता है यह लोग कुंदन कुमार के साथ यादव के कहने पर मार पीट या प्रेस कांफ्रेंस के बहाने बाहर भेजकर कोई बिशेष (हत्या )जैसा जघन्य वारदात करा सकते है .
    इसलिए हम आप सभी लोंगो से और खासकर पी टी आई प्रशाशन से अनुरोध करते है की उचित होगा समय रहते आवश्यक कार्यवाही करे जिससे अनहोनी रोकी जा सके.
    जंहा तक संजय सिन्हा के पास सत्ता की ताक़त है तो कुंदन कुमार के पास जान समर्थन ,अगर कोई अप्रिय बात हुई तो इसकी साडी जिमेदारी संजय सिन्हा,यम यस यादव और पी टी आई प्रशाशन की होगी.धन्यवाद्

    I wish to share with you all that the rogue and corrupt Federation of PTI Employees Union General Secretary (suspended) MS Yadav is almost, yes almost, unlikely to contest the prestigious post this time.
    As is clear from the list of candidates released after scrutiny of nomination papers, Yadav though figures among candidates for general secretary’s post, but he will have to obtain favourable court order to remain eligible to contest the federation elections.
    The election officer as is obvious from his order has played strictly by rules and given a fair chance to Yadav to seek order from a court for eligibility to contest on federation general secretary post let alone win it.
    For all of you, friends and colleagues in PTI and outside, it is a red letter day in the annals of trade union history as truth has prevailed at last and a corrupt leader like Yadav stand vanquished (almost) with shoulders drooping as if blood circulation has been cut off from his poisoned body and soul.
    The shady federation land scam to the tune of Rs. 1.24 crore which I had exposed on August 27 last with help from friends in Delhi has at last cost Yadav dearly in terms of loss of face, dignity and position.
    It is high time Yadav should retire from service and federation and walk into sunset of life after returning land to federation.
    It is still not late, Mr. Yadav. See the writing on walls and huge disapproval of PTI employees of you corrupt ways and nepotism that you indulged in for over two decades.
    Please learn a lesson or two from Mr. John Gonsalves, your colleague in federation who has decided to stand aside in favour of younger leaders.
    You have option to move to court to seek order for eligibility to contest the elections, but who knows : the move may boomrang on you and hastened you visit to Tihar jail on corrupt charges.
    Hope wisdom prevails on you. Have a good night.

  15. यम यस यादव की मौजूदा हालात के जिम्मेदार यादव के प्रमुख सिपहसालार और चमचें ही रहे यह अकाट्य सत्य है ,जिसको यम यस यादव ने जानबूझकर नजरन्दाज किया और उनकी बातों में आकर लोंगों को बर्बाद करते रहे जिसका नतीजा आज आप लोंगो के सामने है
    दोस्तों आप लोंगो को मैं विस्वस्थ सूत्रों से मिली जानकारी और कुछ सबूत सोशल मीडिया या ईमेल पर मिले है उनके अनुसार आप सभी को बताना चाहता हूँ.की इस भरस्टाचार को उजागर करने की शुरुवात क्यों और कैसे हुई
    पटना में यम यस यादव के लोग संजय सिन्हा ,अनवर सईद यादव की कृपा से वर्षो से मलाई खाते चले आ रहे है और इन दोनों ने मिलकर कुंदन कुमार को वर्षों से जलील किया है और लगातार करते आ रहे है दोनों यादव के सहारे स्पेशल अलाउंस और कट कमीशन खाते ही है और दोनों लोग कुंदन कुमार की यह कहकर जलालत करते थे की जब तक पदमा अल्वा और राज़दान है तब तक तुम्हे कुछ नहीं मिलेगा,तुमको बाबाजी का ठुल्लू मिलेगा .संजय सिन्हा जब छुट्टी पर जाते थे तो अनवर सईद से कहकर जाते थे की कुंदन को कोई सहयोग नहीं करना ,कुंदन जहाँ १२ बजे ड्यूटी पर आते थे अनवर सईद ३ से ६ बजे के बीच में जानबूझकर आते थे ,और जब कुंदन कुमार ने इसकी शिकायत संजय सिन्हा से की तो संजय सिन्हा ने अनवर सईद से पूछना तक मुनासिब नहीं समझा .यह बात कोल्कता आर यम ,पदमा अल्वा,शकील अहमद और यादव तक भी गयी लेकिन कोई कुछ ध्यान नहीं दिया .इतना ही नहीं पिछलेसाल कुंदन कुमार को एक्टिंग मेनेजर का चार्ज दिया वह भी बिना सिनियोरिटी और सुबिधा के ,आनंदराज सीनियर प्रिंसिपल कोरेस्पोंडेंट है और कुंदन कुमार २२ साल की नौकरी के बाद भी अभी प्रिंसिपल कॉरेसपॉंडेंट है ,जबकि कुंदन कुमार को बहुत सारे अलाउंस नहीं मिलते है वहीँ पर अनवर सईद को इन्टरनेट और फील्ड ड्यूटी अलाउंस भी मिलता है जब की पता चला है की वह केवल ट्रांसलेटर का ही काम करते है ,इसके अलावा पटना ऑफिस में आये दिन भोज (पार्टी)का आयोजन नवम्बर महीने से लेकर अब तक ७ पार्टियां (बिहारी भाषा में भोज) कुंदन कुमार की औकात दिखने केलिए की गयी जो की ऐसा किसी भी पी टी आई के सेंटर में मेनेजर नहीं करता होगा यह सब केवल कुंदन को जलील करने के लिए किया जाता रहा की लोग पार्टियां मनाये और कुंदन बैठकर देखे .
    संजय सिन्हा के बार बार इस तरह से परेशां करने और चुनौती देना ,मूल कारण बना .
    और इन सभी बातों से तंग आकर कुंदन कुमार ने सोशल मीडिया का सहारा लिया और संजय सिन्हा के आका यम यस यादव के भरस्टाचार को उजागर करने का काम अगस्त महीने से शुरुआत कर दी जो की प्रमाण सहित आप लोंगों के सामने है.
    इस मामले में प्रमोद गोस्वामी ने भी आग में घी का काम किया पटना एग्जीक्यूटिव मीटिंग में बार बार कुंदन कुमार को चूहा कहकर संबोधित किया गया और अपसब्दों का प्रयोग किया गया और ठीक उसी रात में जो ” यादव द्वारा फेडरेशन प्रेसीडेन्ट जॉन गोनसाल्वेस को अँधेरे में रखकर एवम पूरे फेडरेशन ,यूनियन के सदस्यों (श्रीकृष्ण ,सुनील सहगल ,राजबीर सिंह ,और अजय त्यागी को छोड़कर )छुपाकर चुपके से फेडरेशन की प्रॉपर्टी जो अपने बेटे और श्रीकृष्ण के बेटे के नाम पर करा ली थी”उसके सत्यापित प्रतिलिपि कुंदन कुमार ने सोशल साइट पर डालकर यादव के खिलाफ भ्रस्टाचार का मामला उजागर कर दिया उसके बाद मुम्बई में एग्जीक्यूटिव मीटिंग में फेडरेशन कौंसिल मेंबर यम यस हसन द्वारा इस बावत प्रश्न किया गया की यह जो प्रॉपर्टी की बात सोशल साइट पर आई है इसकी जाँच होनी चाहिए जिसका समर्थन प्रेसीडेन्ट जोंगोन्साल्वेस ने भी किया लेकिन यम यस यादव स्वपन आचार्य के साथ मिलकर आवाज को दबाने की पूरी कोशिश की और जाँच के लिए तैयार नहीं हुए इसके बाद फेडरेशन प्रेसीडेन्ट जॉन गोनसाल्वेस मजबूर होकर “यादव ने जो अपने पद का दुरूपयोग करते हुए जो भी काम किया है उसके लिए ” प्रेसीडेन्ट गोनसाल्वेस ने यादव को महासचिव पद से बर्खास्त करते हुए शो काज नोटिस जारी किया.जो की यादव के जवाब के साथ सोशल साइट पर भी आप लोंगो ने देख लिया है.इससे यह स्पस्ट हो गया की “दाल में कुछ काला ही नहीं पूरी की पूरी दाल ही काली है. उसके बाद हम सभी लोंगों ने आप सब से बार बार अपील की की यादव और उनके करीबियों को चुनाव में शिकस्त दे आप लोंगों ने जंहा तक हो सका पूरा प्रयास किया इसके लिए आप लोग धन्यवाद के पात्र है .लेकिन लड़ाई यही नहीं ख़त्म हो रही है अभी आप लोंगो. को दार्जिलिंग में होने वाली फेडरेशन की मीटिंग में सही और उचित निर्णय लेना बाकि है की वह फेडरेशन की प्रॉपर्टी /संपत्ति फेडरेशन को वापस कैसे मिले.जो यादव द्वारा अनैतिक रूप से हड़पने की कोशिश कर रहे है.
    इसलिए आप लोग जागरूक रहिये और लड़ाई लड़ने के लिए तैयार रहे .
    यम यस यादव के भ्रस्टाचार में पी टी आई के तीन सेंटर के मैनेजर बराबर के भागीदार रहे है ,१.पटना ,संजय सिन्हा २,एक्स मेनेजर लखनऊ प्रमोद गोस्वामी ,जयपुर ,अनिल माथुर ये सभी अपने अपने निहित स्वार्थों के लिए यादव को मिसगाइड करना और यादव द्वारा लोंगों कीउपेक्षा करना और प्रताड़ित करना जिससे यह लोग जो भी गलत काम करे किसी की नज़र न पड़े और सबसे सरीफ बने रहे लेकिन कागजी प्रमाण कभी झूठ नहीं बोलते है.
    वैसे हम संजय सिन्हा को बधाई देना चाहतेहै की अगर वह बार बार कुंदन कुमार को चुनौती नहीं देते तो शायद कुंदन कुमार शुरुवात ही नहीं करते और मामला दबा रह जाता और यादव सब कुछ लेकर रफूचक्कर हो जाते लेकिन अब संभव नहीं होगा आज शायद संजय सिन्हा को एहसास हो रहा होगा काश मैं चुनौती न देता तो हमारे प्रिय नेता जो हम लोंगो को मलाई ख़िलाते रहे उनकी यह दुर्गति नहीं होती .और पी टी आई इम्प्लॉयीज यूनियंस का भी अस्तित्व खतरे में नहीं पड़ता ,
    ,””…गोस्वामी तुलसीदास जी ने रामचरित मानस में लिखा है ,

    यह चौपाई यादव और यादव के प्रिय लोंगो पर काफी सूट कर रही है ,जो केवल अपने स्वार्थ के लिए किसी भी हद तक गिर सकते है क्योंकि यादव और राज़दान के राज में कितने काबिल लोग पी टी आई छोड़कर बाहर गए और आज उच्च पदों पर आसीन है और यादव के निकम्मे लोग पटना ,जयपुर, और लखनऊ सहित कई अन्य जगहों पर मलाई खा रहे है इन लोंगो के क़ाबलियत के बारे में लगभग पूरी पी टी आई जानती है खास तौर से दिल्ली संपादकीय बिभाग .
    आशा है यह पोस्ट यम यस यादव की आँखे खोल सके की उनके लोग उन्हें कहाँ से कहाँ पहुंचा दिए ,इसीलिए एक कहावत है की” नादाँ दोस्त से अच्छा दानेदार दुसमन होते है.”जो कम से कम सही को सही और गलत को गलत कहने की हिम्मत रखते है ,फालतू में चापलूसी नहीं करते की आप जो कर रहे हो सब सही है जैसा यादव के कुछ करीबी लोंगों. ने किया है ,
    दोस्तों आप लोग अच्छी तरह से जानते है की केवल कुंदन कुमार ही नहीं इस यादव और राज़दान के शासन काल में सैकड़ों कुंदन जैसे लोंगो को बर्बाद कर दिया गया ट्रांसफर पोस्टिंग का हाल यह रहा है की जो इनकी गुलामी स्वीकार किया वह एक ही जगह जैसे पटना ,जयपुर और लखनऊ में ही पैदा हुआ और वहीँ से रिटायर भी होने जा रहे है लेकिन जो इनकी गुलामी के खिलाफ किसी भ तरह से आवाज उठाई उसे इन लोंगों ने बार बार ट्रांसफर करके उसके परिवार को भी बर्बाद कर दिया है जिसका परिणाम ईश्वर इन्हें जरूर देगा.और उम्मीद है इन तीनो पी टी आई के सेंटरों की सर्जिकल स्ट्राइक जरुरी है जो यादव मैन सेंटर रहेहैं. इन्ही शब्दों के साथ बिराम और बहुत कुछ अगले पोस्ट में.

    • taken from guru vani post
      वॆ पाठकगण जो गुरू दास सॆ भी जुड़ॆ हुए है۬ उनके लिए गुरू वाणी —
      प्रिय पाठकों के गुरू वाणी ने महसूस किया कि आप लोगों को नकाबपोश बाबा रामदेव की तरह शलवार पहनकर छुपकर तथा अनर्गल प्रलाप एवं बेबुनियाद बातें करने वाले नकाबपोश बंधु के नकाब को उतारकर उनके दागदार और बदनुमा चहरे से तथा अपने स्वार्थ साधने के लिए किसी भी हद तक गिर जाने वाले इस महानुभाव के घृर्णित और कुत्सित कृत्यों से अवगत कराया जाए ।
      यहां यह स्पष्ट कर देना उचित होगा कि बेबुनियाद बातें करने वाले उक्त कागजी श॓र और बयान बहादुर को जब भी कुछ अनर्गल प्रलाप करना होता है तो बीमार होने का बहाना बनाकर अपने कार्यालय से अवकाश लेकर चूहे की तरह बिल में घुसकर दूसरों पर प्रहार किया करते हैं ।
      इस नकाबपोश महान लेखक के अगर इतिहास भूगोल की चर्चा की जाए तो शुरूआत पहले उनके अपने घर के लोगों के साथ वि॓शषकर अपने पिता के साथ संबंधों और उनके बारे में महानुभाव के क्या विचार रहे हैं, से आप लोगों को अवगत करा दिया जाना अत्यंत आवश्यक है क्योंकि ऐसा कहा जाता है कि जो अपनों का नहीं हुआ वो भला किसी का क्या हो सकता है ।
      महानुभाव की स्वयं को जन्म देने वाले और चलना सिखाने वाले अपने पिता से पिछले कई वषो॔ न तो बोलचाल है और न कोई रिश्ता बचा है तथा न ही उनके शब्दकोश में अपने पिता के प्रति सम्मान के दो शब्द बचे है बल्कि अब वे तो खुलेआम समस्त पटना पीटीआई कर्मचारियों के समक्ष अपने पिता को न केवल भद्दी भद्दी गालियां देते हैं बल्कि यह भी कहते हैं यही वे अपने पुत्र ( नाबालिग ) को भी यही सिखा रहे हैं । अब पाठकजन आप स्वयं ही अंदाजा लगा सकते हैं कि जो जन्म एवं भरण पोषण करने वाले अपने बाप का न हुआ वह भला किसी का कैसे हो सकता है और उसके पास दूसरे के लिए कैसे अच्छे शब्द और अच्छे विचार हो सकते हैं ।
      यह तो उनके व्यक्तिगत जीवन का एक उदाहरण हुआ । अब उनके कार्यस्थल में अनुशासन बरतने और अपने सहकर्मियों के प्रति सम्मान और उनके साथ बेहतर सुलूक की चर्चा की जाए तो पीटीआई में नियुक्ति के दो साल बाद ही दिल्ली में महिला सहकर्मियों के साथ बदसलूकी करने पर उन्हें वहां से लात मारकर दूसरे स्थान भेज दिया गया था और लखनउ, इलाहाबाद और बनारस में भी इनके गलत आचरण के कारण उन्हें पीटीआई प्रबंधन को उन्हें धक्के मारकर सुदूर पूर्वी इलाके गंगटोक भेजना पडा था ।
      आज ये अकृतज्ञ महानुभाव फेडरेशन के महासचिव एम एस यादव पर उंगली उठा रहे हैं पर गंगटोक से पटना आने के लिए वे यादव जी के यहां न केवल नतमस्तक हुए थे बल्कि अपने पुराने व्यवहार और आचरण के लिए माफी मांगी थी और यह वादा किया था कि भविश्य में वे अब शाॱतिपूर्वक और अनुशासित होकर काम पर ध्यान देंगे और किसी भी सहकर्मी के साथ गलत व्यवहार नहीं करेंगे ।
      पर नाकाबबोश बंधु जिनपर ये मुहावरे- “ जनमक बिगडी, कभी न सुधरी “, “ किसी का नेचर और सिग्नेचर नहीं बदलता “ , फिट बैठते हैं, पटना पहंुचते ही अपना लक्षण दिखाना शुरू कर दिया क्योंकि यहां वे तत्कालीन प्रबंधक श्री अजय तिवारी को अपदस्थ कर उनके स्थान पाने की मंशा से आए थे और इसके लिए उन्होंने यहां के कर्मचारियों को अजय जी के प्रति भडकाने, उन्हें डराने तथा प्रलोभन देने का भी अथक प्रयास किया पर उसमें उन्हें कामयाबी नहीं मिली ।
      यही नहीं, ये व्याकूल प्राणी पीटीआई पटना के प्रबंधक के पद पर आसीन होने के लिए कितने आतुर और बेचैन थे इसका अंदाजा इसी से लगाया जा सकता है कि 2012 में अजय जी का अचानक देहांत हो जाने पर इन्होंने उनके दाह संस्कार होने तक इंतजार करना उचित नहीं समझा और अजय जी के अंतिम संस्कार में षामिल होने पहंुचे यादव जी से पटना के बांसघाट पर ही अजय जी चिता के जलने के पूर्व शमशान घाट पर ही अपनी इस इच्छा को यादव जी से प्रकट करते हुए उनसे इसके लिए गुजारिश करनी शुरू कर दी और पूरे दाह संस्कार की प्रक्रिया तक उनके बगल में खडे होकर इस आशय का अनुरोध करते रहे ।
      दूसरों पर फेडरेशन की बैठक के बहाने दावत उडाने का आरोप लगाने वाले इस मतलबी महाशय ने अपनी इस मंशा को फलीभूत करने के लिए वर्श 2013 में पटना में आयोजित फेडरेशन की कार्यकारिणी की बैठक के दौरान आगंतुकों के लिए न केवल लंच का प्रबंध किया था बल्कि पूरी बैठक के दौरान यादव जी की गणेश परिक्रमा और आवभगत में कोई कोर कसर नहीं छोडी थी पर जब अपनी मंशा के पूरी नहीं होते देख क्षणिक गौ का रूप धारण करने वाले ये महाशय अपने असली रूप सांड में आकर सभों को फिर से सिंह मारना शुरू कर दिया ।
      दूसरों पर भ्रष्टाचार का आरोप लगाने एवं गिरगिट की तरह रंग बदलने वाले इस महानुभाव को भ्रष्टाचार विषय पर प्रवचन देना और इसको लेकर दूसरे पर उंगली उठाना शोभा नहीं देता क्योंकि आप स्वयं ही दूध के धुले नहीं हैं ।
      अपने को भगत सिंह के तौर पर पेश करने वाले ये महानुभाव अक्सर समस्त पटना पीटीआई कर्मियों के समक्ष यह कहते रहे हैं कि जहां भी वे मैनेजर और प्रभारी के पद पर रहे, कभी भी उन्हें वेतन को हाथ नहीं लगाना पडा बल्कि सारे घर के खर्च पूर्ति पेटी कैश अथवा बाहरी कमाई से हो जाया करती थी ।
      इसका परिचय वे पटना आने पर दे चुके हैं और स्थानीय प्रबंधक के छुट्टी पर रहने के दौरान वे स्वयं के प्रभार में के दौरान एक जिला संवाददाता द्वारा अपने बेटे की शादी की खुशी में पटना पीटीआई कर्मियों के लिए लायी गयी मिठाई को वे अपने सहकर्मियों के बीच बांटने के बजाए मिठाई का पूरा पैकेट अपने घर लेते चले गए ।
      आपके चरित्र का चित्रण यह दोहा पूरी तरह चरितार्थ करता है- “ राम नाम (फेडरेशन के नेतत्त्व में मिले वेज बोर्ड और एरियर की प्राप्ति के प्रयास में आलसी) भोजन ( वेजबोर्ड के अनुसार मिले पहले वेतन और एरियर की प्राप्ति के लिए बार-बार अपने बैंक खाता में पहंुचा या नहीं इसके लिए आतुर ) में होिशयार, तुलसी जी जैसे जीव को बार बार धिक्कार “ । और अंत में आपके लिए एक सुझाव- “ हाथी चले बाजार, कुत्ता भौंके हजार “।

        Guru Das दोस्तों गुरु वाणी के नाम से ईमेल और फेसबुक एकाउंट्स के संचालक का नाम और काम के बारे में अभी-अभी पता चला है और आप लोंगों को बता कर बहुत ख़ुशी हो रही है .की
        दर असल ये कोई और नहीं बल्कि पी टी आई पटना के मेनेजर संजय सिन्हा ही हैं .
        एक सप्तसह पहले इन्होंने अपने ऑफिस के टेलीफोन से अपने आका और भ्रस्ट फेडरेशन महासचिव (निष्काषित ) यम यस यादव को फ़ोन करके बताया था और वाकायदा अपने सहयोगी कुंदन कुमार के खिलाफ कैंपेन चलाने की इज़ाज़त मांगी थी .
        सिन्हा ने यादव को कह के सुनील गौर से गुरु वाणी फेसबुक अकाउंट पर फ्रेंडशिप रिक्वेस्ट एक्सेप्ट करने के लिए कहा और इसके बाद ये सिलसिला शुरू हुआ .
        पटना मेनेजर ने अनवर सईद से ये पोस्ट लिखवाया है और सभी सहयोगियों से शेयर करवाने के लिए मज़बूर किया है .
        अच्छा हुआ की सिन्हा और उनके ख़ास सहयोगी खुल कर के यादव के भ्रस्टाचार के समर्थन में सामने आ गए .
        एक महत्वपूर्ण बात बताते चलें की गुरु वाणी शब्द जो सिख धर्मावलंबियों के लिए धार्मिक और भावनात्मक मुद्दा है , इस सम्बन्ध में सिख गुरुद्वारा प्रबंधक समिति , अमृतसर , के जत्थेदार और अधिकारियों को आवश्यक कार्यवाई के लिए बता दिया गया है .
        गुरु वाणी के पोस्ट की कॉपी भेज दी गयी है .
        पी टी आई में भी जो सिख कर्मचारी है वह भी इस बात को देखें की कैसे सिन्हा और इनके गुर्गे लोगों की धार्मिक भावनाओं से खिलवाड़ कर रहे हैं .
        और अन्त में पीटीआई मैनेजमेंट इस बात को समझे की कैसे पटना सेंटर धर्मयुद्ध में तब्दील हो गया है और सेंटर से कभी भी अप्रिय घटना की खबर आ सकती है .
        जैसा की पता चला है की पी टी आई पटना सेंटर के क्रिया कलाप के बारे में मैनेजमेंट को समय -समय पर सब कुछ बताया जा चूका है .
        पटना सेंटर पी टी आई कार्यालय कम यम यस यादव का ऑफिस ज्यादा है .

  16. Mr. Venky Venkatesh
    Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
    Press Trust of India Ltd (PTI)
    New Delhi.

    Dear Mr. Venkateshji,
    You know about social media campaign about corruption, nepotism and other organized crimes of the rogue and corrupt Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary MS Yadav and his ‘commission-khor’ agents in regional and state bureaux.
    You also must be aware by now that Yadav was allowed to become a ‘Frankenstein Monster’ of PTI by your unllustrious predecessor Mahapapi Carpet Razdan who deservedly gets all he gave to hapless, faceless and nameless employees during his over two decade-long despotic rule.
    Wer are not here to discuss Razdan, but Yadav and I have annexed an attachment about his date of birth, that is 14.11.1953 as mentioned in his salary slip of June 2015.
    May I with humility ask to as to how and why Yadav (63) is continuing in service till today.
    Is Yadav, a regional engineer of Journalist 1B grade, is continuing in service as regular employee or has he been given extension?
    Our sources at various levels in PTI management tell us that Yadav is continuing in service as regular employee as the company still contributions to his providend funds.
    Can you deny this fact?
    How is being in a job beyond superannuation age is less criminal offence that shady land deal that to involves Yadav, his mentally unstable son Amit Yadav, Noida land deal scam that involves besides Yadav, your Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Padma Rao Alva?
    Don’t you think it is high time you should take action on DOB issue against Yadav and show him doors?
    Even an FIR will do the job….hope you are listening.

  17. Mr. John Gonsalves
    Federation of PTI Employees Unions

    Dear Mr. Gonsalves,
    Let us begin this post by complimenting you for standing up for integrity and propriety in public life by standing up to might of your rogue and corrupt colleague in the federation for more than two decades.
    We are talking about Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary MS Yadav (63), son of late Laxmi Narayan Yadav.
    You know that the shady federation land scam involving Yadav and his gansters namely Sri Krishan, Sunil Sehgal, Ajay Tyagi and Rajbir Singh, was exposed in last week of August.
    You woke up from deep slumber three months later under intense pressure from colleagues on social media and went on to show cause and suspend him as the federation general secretary.
    Your timely actions rejuvenated and gave a new lease of life to hundreds of suppressed PTI employees at regional and state centres who translated ther anger and frustration by defeating Yadav-led union in Delhi. You too lost a council seat in Mumbai and Yadav’s seasoned chamcha Swapan Acharya was made to bite dust in Kolkata.
    We are sure that you will have taken note of strong mandate by PTI against Yadav-controlled union and preside over election of competent, honest and upright officebearers at the federation AGM to be held in Darjeeling in second week of February.
    Having said that, we have something more on our wishlist that the federation and management should address :
    1. While Yadav should be brought to justice for embezzlement of over one crore rupees and other transgressions, what are those regional managers/managers/senior journalists of special correspondent grade who were complicit and brazenly so in Yadav’s corruption and crime? Should we start exposing them by names or deeds?
    2. You know that Yadav with consent of mahapapi carpet razdan ran ‘transfer, posting and promotion’ racket for decades and so most of regional managers/managers at present at Yadav’s men who got the prized posting by licking his boot and what not.
    3. There was only one criteria for posting of Mr. X,Y and Z as regional managers /managers that he/she must have ability and resources to host federation AGM/executive meetings and share the booty with yadav and his family members.
    4. Is it a fact that all regional managers/managers have turned ‘commission-khor’ and sold out news coverage for a premium?
    5. A number of regional managers/mamagers are known to take money and other favours from contractual employees for sending favourable appraisal report to management for salary hike. The management has no alternative mechanism to verify factual position of manager’s report and so it goes with awarding unreasonable hike to select pampered contractual employees.
    6. The regional managers/managers have huge say in renewal of contract of stringers and here too gratification and their ability to contribute funds for union meetings are criteria for their renewal/extension…ironically the decision in this regard is made by Executive Editor and again without verifying news output of stringers.
    In view of abovementioned hard facts, you are requested to adopt a resolution at the upcoming federation AGM requesting the management to make it mandatory for senior officials to visit regional centres/state bureaux at regular interval to take stock of working atmosphere, facilities and problems of employees.
    During Razdan’s lengthy rule, the senior officials used to visit only those centres where money and gifts were assured.
    Hope you will kind enough to take note of the above mentioned suggestions and bring these to attention of Mr. Venky Venkatesh, CEO, who is the only well meaning person in the organization at the moment.

Kya Yadav ne apni beti ko padhane ki liye Patna, Dehradun, Jaipur aur Hyderabad ke kuch khaas journalist aur non-journalists to laabh nahin pahunchaya? Kya malaidar bureaux (Patna, Jaipur and Lucknow (pehle)) ke commissionkhor manager ms yadav ke log nahin gain? Kya yadav ko managers ke dwara paise nahin jaate hai? Kya yadav ne baad mein transfer aur promotiob ke liye paise lena shuru nahin kiya tha? kya yadav ke ghar mein functions hone per ex-ceo se lekar editors, administrators aur chuninda centres ke managers/journalists/non-journalists ka jana mandatory nahin tha?

  19. It is colossal waste of public money doled out to PTI by both the Central and State Governments as income tax waiver , allotment of govt. plots at concessional rates for PTI buildings in state capitals, and more so subscribing to by the AIR and Doordarshan although they have correspondents at each every districts and state capitals and their network is far better. Even the govt. has permitted PTI to let out its premises at the Sansad Marg which is highly sensitive zone being close to Parliament. Do these rogues know that why the governments have relaxed their policies for PTI ? It is because they thought PTI is a not for profit organisation and serving the people but on the contrary the erstwhile CEO MKR who went begging w2ith a platter to the governments for dole and concessions in various forms was hoodwinking them. And took a fat salary of not less than Rs1.5 crore for annum, changed cars every second year -one for his official use and another for his family besides other perquisites running into crores annually. because of these rogues .He allowed these rogues to rob the agency coffer . And all these at the cost of Public Money fooling the governments that for sustenance of PTI it needs government financial assistance which is an utter lie. Instead of using the money for welfare of the employees MKR siphoned money in the form of eye boggling salary and other perquisites and allowed his minions to share booty while the employees got nothing.These should be probed by the government how and where the money was spent ? It is also alleged that nearly Rs 5 crore has been siphoned off in the construction of the building at Jaipur.and the manager was a conduit . He, who has administrative capability and disliked by the staff was rewarded that post because none other person could do what he did to please the bosses- MKR, Shakeel Ahmed and the Federation General Secretary at the cost of PTI . His daughter was appointed as a graphic designer at Delhi, despite being very poor in her work, as additional reward to him and keep his mouth shut so as not to spill the misdeeds and misappropriation committed in the construction of the PTI building, it is alleged by the employees of jaipur office.

  20. Details available on Kundan Kumar FB Post:-
    Here is a bombshell regarding shady land deal involving Federation of PTI Employees Union General Secretary MS Yadav.
    Pls read the first page very carefully which has signed on judicial stamp by Kiran Khatri, the owner of piece of land from where our federation bought it in 2011.
    This lady says in a one- page document that she took in all Rs. 1.24 crore from federation for sale of 200 square land to the federation in 2011 as against the papers of land deal in possession of federation according to which its value stood at Rs. 65 lakh.
    Which of the two documents – both judicial.nature – is true? Mr. Yadav and his chamchas Sunil Sehgal, Ajay Tyagi, Rajbir Singh and others.
    What happened to a staggering amount of Rs. 59 lakh, the difference between Rs.1.24 crore paid to the land lady and Rs.65 lakh that was paid by federation for the land in the other documents?
    Rs. 59 lakh kiske pocket mein gaya, mananiya yadavji? Ye to janata aur PTI union ke sadasyon ko batayen.
    Doston, aap sabhi Delhi ke karamchari sathiyon se aagrah karta hun ki aap log yadav aur chamchon se sawal jaroor puchhe aur FIR karen.

  21. Dear Mr. Venky Venkatesh, PTI CEO
    This post is being written to draw your attention to the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Padma Rao Alva’s hobnobbing with the much maligned Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary MS Yadav and her desperate attemps to influence to ongoing union elections in the organization throughout the country.
    A number of candidates contesting the union electiona have conveyed their strong displeasure at Ms. Rao Alva sharing Mid-Day Meal (MDM), also known as lunch, with the rogue Yadav evwry day in her second flooe chamber. She has been doing so for past 2o years as a token of gratitude towards Yadav for influencing her appointment as the Regional Manager (North) in 1996.
    She has beem an equal partner of ‘monumental corruption’ and organized loot of PTI’s resources during the unilluatrious dwspotic rule of Mahapapi (K) Carpet Razdan. Enclosed is the papers of the infamous Noida plot allotment scam for your perusal and necessary action.
    You will find names of both MS Yadav (2 plots) and Padma Rao Alva (one plot) among other PTI officials and union leaders who were allotted plots by the then Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav.
    Let me not digress from Padma Rao Alva’s business partnership with Yadav and I must say that she has been an equal partner to whatever wrongdoings took place in the organization.
    Hundreds of employeew were hugely disappointed to learn that she has been given extension for another six months with raise in her wages and other perks. Let us leave it as it it is your job to hire or fire employees and grant extension.
    However, you are requested to be careful of this wicked lady who if situation permits can stage a coup against you to get the CEO’s chaie for herself.
    In the end, you are a man of unimpeachable integrity and patience and so we can expect that you can diŕect Padma Rao Alva against breaking bread with Yadav, a tainted union leader, and unnecessarily meddling in union elections, particularly in Mumbai and Delhi.

  22. Details available on Kundan kumar post on FB
    Kundan Kumar :The rogue and corrupt Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary MS Yadav now literally faces revolt from the union members from Delhi and elsewhere in the country. As all of you know, Yadav (63), who ruled the federation with iron hands for 22 years has been suspended by the Federation President John Gonsalves over shady land deal among various charges of corruption and nepotism. Earlier this week, the long standing federation trasurer Ashwani Verma resigned from his post citing personal matters though the main reason was that he disapproved Yadav’s corruption and transfer of highly valuable land to his ‘chhote natwar’ Amit Yadav. In a fresh blow, another senior Delhi union member Rattan Verma has written a strongly worded protest letter with copy to federation president charging Yadav with backing out of promise at the Delhi PTI Workers Union GBM on December 30 in which he had promised to hold elections Delhi union through secret ballot as demanded by the members at the meeting. Five days have passed, but Yadav has yet to take initiative to hold the elections in democratic matter through secret ballot for which a signature campaign was carried out by the majority members to apply pressure on the corrupt union leader to hold elections without any further delay. Mr. Verma’s hard letter proves very clearly that majority of employeee are frustrated with Yadav’s designs to vitiate democratic process so that he and his chamchas are nominated to their respective posts as has been the case since 2002. Mr. Verma has also drawn attention to terror tactics adopted by Yadav through his ‘chhota shakeel’ Rajbir Singh to armtwist Delhi unit members to sign on ditto lines that members had not demanded elections by secret ballot. It is high time the federation president John Gonsalves should direct the outgoing Delhi unit officebearers to hold the election in a democratic way through secret ballot and announce a schedule in this regard. Mr. Gonsalves should also debar Yadav and other culprits like Ajay Tyagi, Rajbir Singh, Sunil Sehgal and any other officebearers from contesting elections as there is a watertight case of criminality committed by these touts of Yadav. Hope to hear some positive news soon from you guys in Delhi.

  23. Guru Das:-Friends,
    The arrogance of the suspended Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary MS Yadav and his chamchas have crossed all limits of decency out of frustation after they were caught red-handed in various corruption-related activities. A source from Kolkata has just told us that the Federation Assistant General Secretary Sapan Acharya, who has run Kolkata unit of union like ISIS, yesterday publicly abused the CEO Mr. Venky Venkatesh behind his back soon after he left Kolkata office after meeting employees there on his maiden visit. Believe it ot not, Acharya, a crook in Journalist 1B grade asked employees to ignore whatever things the CEO and obey the union leaders including him. Achary warned the employees that he still has powers to get them transferred at inconvenient places if they don’t fall in line and support his team in elections for Kolkata unit due on January 12 next. Mr. Venkatesh had given a morale boosting speech before employees and said that transfer, posting and promotion will not be carried out at the whims of anyone (implying union) and done strictly in fair and transparent manner. If these facts are true, Acharya is posing serious threat to your authority and there are reasons to be beware of powerful union leaders like Acharya, who is on extension. Pls protect Kolkata employeew from coercion by a gunda leader like Acharya.

    Hemant Kumar The CEO should forthwith without delay withdraw the extension to the Kolkata Don leader who is on the mercy of the management for showing disrespect . THe CEO should act without delay before January 11. to show him he is on extension at his mercy not because of any outstanding productive work

  24. The murky saga involving the rogue, corrupt and suspended Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary MS Yadav is getting thicker and thicker as the days pass on. In the latest development, Yadav has shamelessly tried to hold on to Federation of PTI Employees Unions General Secretary post by illegally convening an emergency federation executive meeting at Kolkata on January 11 next with singular agenda ti overturn Fderation President John Gonsalves’s letter by which Yadav was showcaaused and suspended from his post for abuse of position as union leader and getting fedeation property transferred in the name of his son Amit Yadav and another. Yadav has given very unconvincing reply to show cause notice an pleaded with the president to withdraw suspension, but before Gonsalves could take any view of the matter, Yadav pressurized his chamcha in Kolkata Sapan Acharya, an Assistant General Secretary of Federation, to convene an illegal emergency executive meeting with authorization of the president. Gonsalves has rightly declared the proposed meeting as illegal and warned Yadav and other participants with legal action. I am sure Gonsalves will take care of nwfarious designs of Yadav and his chalis chor. Coming bank to organized loot of union worths worth of rupees, Yadav is not answering serious questions like : 1. Why should federation operate two bank accounts and who authorized it ? 2. Why did huge amount of money lying in souvenir account of federation was used for purchasing land and who authorized the transaction? 3 what happened to Rs. 78 lakh on account of sale proceeds of federation land? Has it been accounted for? 4. An amount of Rs. 70 lakh was raised through levy collected at the rate of one per cent of total arrears of wage board award due to each employee? 5. Why does federation need a locker in a public sector bank’ branch located in PTI building at Parliament Street? What all is kept in that locker? Yadav must account for it. In the end, we request you all federation executive meetings to ignore request for attending emergency executive meeting at Kolkata as the president John Gonsalves has declared the meet illegal as the term of federation office bearers has got over on December 31 last. Like the ousted SP patriach Mulayam Singh Yadav, Mahavir Singh Yadav is down and out for the good of hundreds of employees. Don’t fear him or prostrate before him as he can not get any of you tranferred or penalised at his whims as was the case earlier. Having come thus far in exposing Yadav’s corruption and nepotism, we request you all to come on board to kick out ROGUE ex-leader.

  28. Gurudas:An open letter to PTI Employees in Delhi —————————————————————-Dear Friends, you all are aware of sustained aocial media campaign over the past five months that has exposed largescale corruption of Federation of PTI Employees Union General Secretary MS Yadav and his gang. We are told Yadav has lost his invincibility so much so that he cuts a sorry figure these days among the rmployees whom he ruled with iron hands. Compounding Yadav’s miseries, his once trusted colleague and Federation of PTI Employees Union President John Gonsalves has reported suspended as General Secretary and served a notice to him seeking explanation for embezzlement of union funds. It has been learnt that Yadav has promised to return unspecified amount of money that he has swindled from union accounts. The long overdue legal action by Federation will take care of itself as Gonsalves has refussed to submit himself to threat and blackmail by Yadav. The most important thing before you is the election of Delhi unit. It was glad to know that Mr. Rattan Verma and some other employees disapproved Yadav’s proposal to seek re-selection of panel of officebearers comprising among others Sunil Sehgal rpt Sehgal, Ajay Tyagi, Rajbir Singh among others who colluded with Yadav in illegal sale of federation property to his son Master Amit Yadav. These self-serving union leaders have lost all credibility and if re-elected will not be in a position to take up issues for welfare of employees. So why waste your precious votes on corrupt union leaders?…Give a chance to a new breed of leaders. We are also hearing that Yadav is trying to stall elections as he knows that he no longer enjoys trust of employees. Please don’t fall into traps set up by Yadav and insist on elections. All of you must be aware that the Western region is all set to elect a new set of council members. Please join forces with them to oust corrupt union leaders led by Yadav. We can only appeal to you all ; the call is yours…please hear the voice of your conscience that we know atma, jameer.
    Gurudas:Dear all, As the year 2016 enters final week to make way for a promising 2017, here is recap of our sustained crusade against corruption in India’s frontline news agency, Press Trust of India (PTI). You will recall that the social media was agog with reports about imminent departure of the despotic CEO-Cum-EIC Maharaj K (Carpet) Razdan in the first half of this year. Of all media reports, a popular website wrote a mind blowing story about mess in PTI that opened pandora’s box with both insiders and outsiders having ringside view of development within the agency started writing extensively about corruption and nepotism by Razdan and Yadav combine. As Razdan made way for his successor Mr. Venky Venkatesh in August, the tales of corruption by the rogue Federation of PTI Employees Union General Secretary MS Yadav started emerging. The Noida plot allotment scam, federation property scam, loot of federation funds, advertisement racket and transfer/posting/promotion racket in PTI made headlines in social media. Yadav emerged as the main culprit in all these murky deals. Taken by surprise at venomous expose blitz against, Yadav, all of 63 years of age and an illiterate Group 1B journalist, threatened the whistleblowers with legal action, but his overconfidence petered out with his mentor, a sagely Razdan, advising him to ignore expose against him. However, the corruption charges stuck on Yadav, son of late Laxmi Narayan Yadav, with his colleagues led by Federation of PTI Employees Union President John Gonsalves daringly asking him to come clean on land deal and embezzlement of federation funds at Federation Executive meeting held at Mumbai in November last. With Yadav stonewalling all moves to make him accountable for cooruption charges, Gonsalves served a show cause notice to Yadav recently to tightened screw against his General Secretary. The outcome of show cause notice to Yadav is waited. Meanwhile, fed up with corruption by the union leaders, the PTI employees in Delhi and Mumbai have decided to elect a new team of office bearers during elections over the next couple of weeks. While all options are being explored to file criminal cases against Yadav and his corruption team members, the departure of Yadav, Gonsalves and other criminal and corrupt elements from various union posts will hopefully rescue the federation from a certain dismemberment next year.
    Gurudas:Dear PTI Employees, As all of you know, we are carrying out a massive campaign against corruption in Federation of PTI Employees Unions presided over by the corrupt General Secretary MS Yadav and his henchmen in the apex body, metros and state bureaux. We have tasted small success against criminal and rogue elements, but the tide can turn against Yadav and co if the wage board employees unite to oust these criminal elementd by electing a new team office bearers during upcoming elections. For instance, if Yadav (63) does not get elected as council member from DElhi, he will not become federation general secretary, a post that he treats like ‘baap ka raaj’. So what are you guys waiting for ? Exercise your ballot at elections next month and get rid of a monstrous Yadav and his team who ruled over employees by terrorising then with tranfer. The same formula applies in Mumbai as the ballot is the most effective weapon against corruption and we are glad that the employees there have decided to contest on council posts against Team John Gonsalves, whose track record as a despostic union leader has been as bad as Yadav. Both drew powers from the Ex-CEO Maharaj K (Carpet) Razdan. If Delhi and Mumbai union leadership changes hands, then organized crime and corruption will become a thing of past under new team of federation. So aadha adhura kaam nahin hona chahiye. Lekin parivaran ke liye sabse jaruri hai ki employees mein ichchashakti ho ki sach ka sath denge; Yadav and John ke logon ko hatayenge aur naye logon ko mauka denge. Baki sab kuch aap logon ke jameer per chhorta hun. Bus itna yaad rakhna ki logo ne 20-20 saal Yadav ki gulami ki hai; daulat to bahut banaya hai logon nei lekin imaan ke paimaane pe Yadav and uske chamche nange hai employees in nazar mein aur samaj ki nazar mein. Having said that, the corruption by Yadav and his family members and chamchas in metros and states will be taken to logical conclusion.

  29. My friend Gurudas has written a comment on Dec.14, 2016, about the staff missusing the Office premisses for drink parties. He is writing about Patna and Lucknow, but now I would like to write about this practice being there in other centers much before. When I was there in PTI, Indore one day when I was on afternoon shift i.e from 1430 to 2030 Hrs, after I left the Office after completing my duty, staff members led by S K Apte “THE DADA” of PTI INDORE, assembeld and had a drink party till 12 in the midnight. You will be surprised to hear that the local Manager Harshwardan Prakash, was verymuch there in that party. Apart from these two there was Dilip Motwani todays Journalist in Bhopal, who had his weekly off on that day, still came for the party, Rajendra Singh Rawat an Attender and Umashenkar Kukreti. I have the proof for this. You will be more surprised to here, one Vishwas Sharma an outsider who has nothing to do with PTI, a good friend of our local DADA from their “ASHRAM”, regularly visits PTI. Like an employee he sits for hours together in the Office talking all ‘bullshit”. Every one should be his friend according to our local DADA, otherwise they will be treated like I have been treated. This Sharma Ji was there even when the PTI Fedration had called for one day “DHARNA” in front of the Office. Photos were clicked along with him and were sent to Delhi. He is a good friend of our 10th class fail leader at Delhi. I wrote about this to the head Office but our highly educated H R Manager, like any other complaints I wrote, he sets it aside ignoring it. Mr. Gurudas, here please note that the local manager was very much there and the head office refused to take any action as the local manager, the local neta and the local staff were involved. The local manager Harshwardan Prakash, who is on Contract was also sitting in that “Dharna” and I was told that he was trying for a membership in PTI, Workers Union, to make sure his job is safe. He even attended M S Yadav’s son, Amit Yadav’s wedding with costly gifts. The others who atteded the wedding were Apte and Dilip Motwani with gifts, by virtue of which he is a Journalist today at Bhopal . The party was organised in the office premisses with full confidence in the presence of the local manager as they had the “ASHIRWAD “of the Union leader at Delhi. The local Manager was confident of support from Union leader. When I was asked by the then G M ( Admin) Shakeel Ahmed to re-join at Indore center, the local manager Harshwardan Prakash Pandit, refused to take my joining report. I had to forcefully leave my joining report , on his table. I have earliar written that this Harshwardan Prash Pandit is a “GOONDA ELEMENT”, not at all a Jornalist, who was chosen by M S Yadav, a 10th fail, to finish me by hook or crook and was given all powers. He is not faithful to the organisation which has given him bread and butter, but to that Union leader. Now I hope the new Managment would take action against such people.I am forced to write all this as the previous Management did not listen to our problems due to the pressure of M.S.Yadav.

  30. As told by Balram Singh, that Yadav’s Gotra is “Saamp Gotra”, is 100% true he is not at all trust worthy. There was a day when I was ready to leave my family for Yadav and his Union, I was so close to him. He even used to say that I was his “Second Wife”, I used to guide him in the right direction. May be there are sevral seniors who have seen me so close to Yadav were surprised of my writings, against Yadav. I was harrased by Managment under the instructions of Yadav for not being a member of his Union. I am a man of Principals, I stand by any Union or a Person who fought for the cause of emloyees and for the employees welfare.

    As Balram Singh said, through he (Yadav) was so close to me oneday, today some how he wants Managment to get rid of me from PTI. He knows that I am a popular leader than him, even today. He knows if I am in PTI, I might take over him. As I have writen earlier he is the most selfish person, he can do anything to get anything for himself or for his family. I want the CBI or Income Tax people should raid his House and arrest the whole family and put them behind bars. Same thing with Padma. I am told ED is after Razdan’s assets.
    Not only me, he (Yadav) can cheat anybody for his selfish needs . He and Razdan were in a secret pact that only both of them should be there in the top posts and every one should be under them. When the board wanted a replacement for Razdan there was non in PTI, so they had to go for an outsider. For Yadav there is no compitetor, as there is no one, the one ( myself) he is after me to be outsted, as all otheres’ are acting as his slaves for their personal needs only. Even today I am the only one to challenge him. When Razdan was going he did not feel sorry for him or leave the organisation, but even today I am told is blackmailing the present Managment to listen to him, god knows when is the end for his dictatorship. It is a warning to Jhon, Sapan or even the Moti for all those who are still trusting him.
    Today I am writing something which is too personal about Yadav, he is going to a ” Moulvi” with one of his close associates, and the “Moulvi” does some Black Magic, so that there is no opposition to him in PTI and he should be the whole and soul in PTI Union. Even today in the Computer age Yadav still belives in such black magics. He even went to Assam to perform “Kali Pooja” to sucseed court cases.This is known only to very few people. One day I called him at home as he has no time in the Office, his wife told me that he leaves early from home, goes to some place in Haryana, to some Pandit Ji as he is doing some Pooja, then comes to Office. He visits Tirupati Balaji Temple every six months. All these things he does to servive at the top and not to be cought. He does not trust anyone, because he himself is not trust worthy. He can change his mind anytime and known to cheat.
    Few words to Yadav from me. Yadav I was closely associated with you and used to guide you in the right direction till I was your friend and a well wisher. I left you in the year 2001 and fully cutoff in the year 2002, as you had started doing things which were not in the employees interst and in your own interest i. e. you started becoming selfish, because those days your friends were someone else. They used you for their own selfish needs. If you remember, once you had said ” sale kabhi apne liye bhi kuch maang le, jab bhi deko dusronke liye maangte rehta hain”. I never asked you for any fovours. Then you had more friends, then enimies, but today you have more enimes both in PTI and out side, and less friends and no true friends. Today your friends are those who want something from you, but you want to see me out of PTI, because you feel a threat to yourself from me. This is the truth, all our old friends who were in PTI, had to leave PTI because of harrasment by both you and Maha Kamina Razdan. One day your’s will be the story of “Valmiki”, your won family or your todays friends will disown you, then you will remember me and my words. Even today our old friends who knew us both being together say ” thumhara yadav”, while I am not yours anymore. It is sure one day you will be put behind bars for your today’s deeds.

  31. Friends, Let us celebrate some positive development taking place for PTI employees in recent days of which the payment of fourth and final instalment of arrears is most soothing. The management has decided to clear the last instalment of arrears despite a negative perception projected by the corrupt union leader MS Yadav and his chamchas that the CEO Mr. Venky Venkatesh was delaying it on one pretext. However, we are showing magnanimity to let Yadav take credit for payment of last instalment of arrears. At the same time, we must also thank the CEO for keeping his predecessor Maharaj K (Carpet) Razdan’s written agreement with his stooge Yadav for payment of arrears by December this year. Having said that, the rogue union union leader, who brought disrepute to the union and his family as well by committing a clear cut case of corruption by selling federation property to his son Amit Yadav, a thug in making, and another in brazen breach of the federation’s constitution. But for alertness of a senior employee who spent own money to fetch the certified copy of shady land deal to help us expose it on August 27 last, Yadav would have walked away keeping his innocence intact. Now that he stands naked on the basis of documentary evidence, we shamed him repeated to force his to resign as the union leader and return the federation land to which he initially agreed but later reneged on his promise in consistence with his grey character. Now another good news is that the Federation of PTI Employees Union President his excellency John Gonsalves has served a show cause notice to Yadav asking his to explain land deal. We may have initially disagreed with Mr. Gonsalves, but there is no shame in praising him for trying to capture the wild bull (Yadav) ‘junglee bhaisa’ by his horns and make him accountable for his conduct. We all with you, Mr. Gonsalves, in your efforts to clean the mess in federation otherwise nobody will trust union leaders in future. It is being heard that Yadav and his potbellied and drunkard accomplice in corruption, Swapan Acharya are flying to Mumbai in a couple of days to placate Mr. Gonsalves, but we seriously hope and pray that he will not fall for any allurements. We are optimistic that the PTI management too will take serious view of Yadav’s crimes and show him doors as he is in any case on extension into fourth year. We also urge the PTI employees at metros and state bureaux to pile up sustained pressure on the management and saner union leaders to take Yadav’s corruption to logical end. PTI bring the world to subscribers and readers, but it was people like Razdan and his cohorts who introduced corruption, nepotism, protectionism and other evil instutional practices in partnership with rogue Yadav and his chamchas in metros and state bureaux. Let us hope that the incumbent management restores old glories of PTI. In the end, we must say to Mr. Gonsalves : please go for the kill and nail Yadav and ensure that he gets to spen remainder of his life in solitary confinement in Tihar jail.

    जैसा की आप सभी लोग जानते है की महराज कृष्ण राजदान ने मैनेजमेंट और एडिटर इन चीफ की कोई सेकंड लाइन नहीं तैयार की उसी तरह से फेडरेशन लीडर महामहिम यम यस यादव एंड कॉम.ने फेडरेशन में सेकंड लीडरशिप नहीं होने दिया जिसका नतीजा आप लोंगो के सामने है की मैनेजमेंट में लोग बाहर से आ गए और जंहा तक फेडरेशन की बात है तो आप लोंगों को हम बताना चाहते है की महामहिम यादव ने बोर्ड और मैनेजमेंट से यह वादा किया है की उनके जाने के बाद पी टी आई यूनियन और फेडरेशन स्वतः ही समाप्त हो जाएगी सिर्फ उन लोंगो को थोड़ा सा मौका और दे दिया जाये और कामरेड आप लोग जानते है की यम यस यादव जिस तरह से जोर देकर कहते थे की मैनेजमेंट में बाहर से कोई नहीं आने पायेगा मैं नहीं आने दूंगा कुछ नहीं उखाड पाए और हो गया और आप लोग यम यस यादव जिंदाबाद के नारे लगाते रहे . ठीक उसीं तरह से फेडरेशन भी ख़त्म हो जायेगा और आप लोग देखते रह जायेंगे जिसका ताज़ा उदहारण आप लोंगो के सामने है की आप लोंगो की आँखों में धूल झोंककर फेडरेशन की प्रॉपर्टी अपने बेटे के नाम पर करा लिया और आप लोग देखते रह गए इतना ही नहीं आप लोंगो की इतनी भी औकात नहीं बची की आप लोग यह पूछ सके की ऐसा कैसे कर लिया ,आप लोग अच्छी तरह से जानते है की मुम्बई फेडरेशन एग्जीक्यूटिव मीटिंग में अगर थोड़ी सी हिम्मत करके जॉन गोन्साल्वेज़ ने कहा की फेडरेशन की प्रॉपर्टी और अन्य मामलों पर एक जाँच करा ली जाये तो आज की स्थिति यह हो गयी की जो आदमी आँख बंद करके यादव के हर अच्छे बुरे कामों में सहयोग किया उसको बाहर के रास्ता दिखने के लिए अंतिमप्रयास किया जा रहा है ,जबकि हकीकत यह है की यह सभी नेतागण दोषी है जो सेकंड लीडरशिप तैयार नहीं होने दिया और सभी के सभी एक्सटेंशन पर चल रहे है और हराम की मलाई खा रहे है और ऊपर से ईमानदारी का ढिढोरा पीट रहे है ,
    अभी जल्द ही पता चला की आपलोंगों को मजीठिया वेजबोर्ड के एरिअर की अंतिम क़िस्त भी जो की यम यस यादव ने राजदान से गुप्त समझौता करके दिसम्बर २०१६ की सैलरी के साथ देने की बात कही थी अभी नहीं मिलेगा जब ३ किस्तें बिना किसी बाधा के मिली तो अब क्यों नहीं दिया जा रहा है और सबसे बड़ी बात यह है की जो गोपनीय सूत्रों से पता चला है की यादव और राजदान ने कुछ बोर्ड मेम्बरों से सांठ गाँठ करके डिले करना चाहते है जिससे यूनियन के इलेक्शन हो जाये और आप लोग उनको दुबारा चुन ले और कम से कम उसी आधार पर एक साल और मलाई खाएं इतना ही नहीं राजदान और यादव ने पी टी आयी बोर्ड ऑफ़ डायरेक्टर पर तरह तरह से प्रेसर बनाकर एक डायरेक्टर की पोस्ट क्रिएट कराकर राज़दान को दो साल के लिए लाना चाहते थे लेकिन बोर्ड मेम्बरों को मना नहीं पाए .
    आप सभी लोग जानते है की रीजनल सेंटर के चुनाव के बाद दार्जिलिंग में फेडरेशन की एनुअल जनरल मीटिंग होगी जो की पिछले १५ बर्षों से यह लोग मनोनीत होते आई है फिर होंगे इसलिए जरुरी है की रीजनल चुनाव में ही इन्हें बाहर किया जाये नहीं तो जिस तरह से फेडरेशन की प्रॉपर्टी जो की यूनियन की प्रॉपर्टी है यादव को दे दी जा रही है यह सभी नेता मिलकर फेडरेशन के सारे पैसे और प्रॉपर्टी को लेकर भाग जायेंगे और यूनियन को पूरी तरह से बोर्ड ऑफ़ डाइरेक्टर और मैनेजमेंट की मिलीभगत से ख़त्म कर देंगे इसलिए अगर आप लोग यूनियन को बचाना चाहते है तो इन सभी लोंगो को यूनियन से बाहर निकालकर नया पैनल लेकर आये और आगे बढे नहीं तो बहुत पछताओगे.
    वैसे मैं पुनः फेडरेशन प्रेसीडेंट से भी आग्रह करता हूँ की अगर आप ईमानदारी से कार्यवाही करना चाहते है तो प्रेसीडेंट की हैसियत से आप तत्काल यादव के खिलाफ यफ आई आर कराके उनको आने वाले चुनाव से बाहर करें और प्रॉपर्टी को फेडरेशन को वापस दिलाएं नहीं तो जब भी FIR होगा आप अपने आप को भी नहीं बचा पाएंगे .
    और इस पोस्ट के अन्त में मैं पी टी आई के नव नियुक्त सीईओ से निवेदन के साथ अनुरोध करता हूँ की अगर संस्था की कार्यप्रणाली प्रभावित हो रही है तो पी टी आयी मैनेजमेंट कही न कहीं इस बात की जिम्मेदार है,धन्यवाद् शेष अगले पोस्ट में

  33. कामरेड ,मैंने कल एक पोस्ट फेसबुक पर डाला था जिसको शायद आप लोंगो ने पढ़ लिया होगा ,हम आप लोंगो का ध्यान बार बार धोखेबाज और बेईमान यूनियन लीडर यम यस यादव और कुछ मैनेजमेंट के लोंगों को बेनकाब करने के लिए सोशल साईट पर डेली कुछ न कुछ पक्के सबूतों के साथ आप सभी लोंगो को उपलब्ध करा रहेहै आशा है आप लोग पूरी अच्छी तरह से समझ गए होंगे लेकिन दुर्भाग्य से मैनेजमेंट के कानो पर जूं नहीं रेंग रहा है लगता है की किसी अप्रत्याशित घटना का इन्तजार पी टी आयी मैनेजमेंट और बोर्ड ऑफ़ डायरेक्टर को है जैसा की हमने कल के पोस्ट में आप लोंगो को सूचित किया है की लखनऊ ऑफिस के एक रिपोर्टर ने फ़ोन करके महामहिम यादव से मैनेजर को मारने की परमिशन ले रहे थे जो की आये दिन दारू पीकर ऑफिस का माहौल ख़राब कर रहे है इसी तरह से महामहिम यादव के द्वारा पोषित लोग जो की जयपुर ,पटना ,लखनऊ , दिल्ली और बहुत से पी टी आयी के ऑफिस में मौजूदा समय में पदस्थ हैं अराजकता की चरमसीमा पर चल रहे है और उनको यह आभाष है की पी टी आयी मैनेजमेंट कुछ नहीं कर सकती है जैसा की पूरी तरह से साफ साफ दिखाई दे रहा है,और ऐसे माहौल में जो भी ईमानदारी से पी टी आयी के लिए काम करने वाले है जिनका सालों से उनका शोषण किया गया और उम्मीद है की आगे भी जारी रहेगा क्योंकि ऐसे अपाहिज मैनेजमेंट से आप कोई उम्मीद न करे तो बेहतर होगा क्योंकि जब तक यह पूरा मामला लीगल (कानूनी)रूप नहीं लेगा तब तक इस संस्था में कोई नहीं सुनेगा इसलिए इतना सब होने के बाद भी मैनेजमेंट ने यादव & कं० से कोई भी स्पष्टिकरण नहीं माँगा है और मुम्बई फेडरेशन मीटिंग में अगर थोड़ी सी हिम्मत करके जॉन गोन्साल्वेज़ ने कहा की फेडरेशन की प्रॉपर्टी और अन्य मामलों पर एक जाँच करा ली जाये तो महामहिम यम यस यादव और स्वपन आचर्या जो की यादव और मैनेजमेंट के रहमो कर्म पर सर्विस एक्सटेंशन पर चल रहे है और हराम की मलाई खा रहे है ईमानदारी का ढिढोरा पीट रहे थे और सुनने में आया है की यादव जॉन की उस बात से नाराज़ होकर जॉन को पहले बाहर का रास्ता दिखाना चाह रहे है ,वैसे आप लोंगो को हम स्पष्ठ बता रहे है की ये नेता लोग एक दूसरे को गली देंगे और आप जैसे लोंगों को मुर्ख बनाकर अपना उल्लू सीधा करते रहेंगे क्योंकि असलियत यही है की पी टी आयी मैनेजमेंट अँधा और बहरा है जो कोई भी उचित निर्णय लेने में सक्षम नहीं है . और सबसे बड़ा दुर्भाग्य यह है की इन सब चीजों से इस समय पी टी आयी की कार्यप्रणाली भी प्रभावित हो रही है जो की आने वाले समय में संस्था और कर्मचारियों के हित में भी
    नहीं होगा .इसलिए समय रहते ऐसे लोंगो के खिलाफ खड़े होकर सही का साथ दे और गलत को बाहर का रास्ता दिखाएँ ,धन्यवाद शेष अगले पोस्ट में प्रमाण के साथ ………

    Feast to fear : anarchy prevails at PTI bureaus ; what is management upto? ———————————————————————- It was nearby five months back that a popular website wrote mind blowing article on sad state of affairs in PTI then under Maharaj (K) Carpet Razdan, CEO-cum-EIC, who much to relief of employees, has retired. As many as 92 comments have been written by many serving and retired employees, besides media watchers on mismanagement and corruption by the union leaders and some senior officials. The commentators identified three state bureaux – Jaipur, Lucknow and Patna – as epicentre of corruption and mismanagement. The management subsequently cracked whips at Jaipur officials doing away with night shift which was used by the rogue Federation of PTI Employees Union leader MS Yadav’ kins who had virtually turned the office premises in a virtual brothel. However, the management is yet to turn attention at Lucknow and Patna bureaux where the working condition remains vitiated with Yadav’s men in key position calling shots with brazenness which is not seen in other media organizations. While Patna centre has earned notoriety for hosting feasts at regular interval of late ( see attachments), in Lucknow a trusted accomplice of the corrupt union leader has temerity to threaten to beat up the manager there for banning overnight stay of employees in office premises. To elaborate more on ‘feast culture’ at PTI Patna, there is nothing wrong in doing so in hotel, restaurant and eataries outside, but to use office premises for cooking food for feast must not be allowed by the management. But the frequently of feast in Patna office clearly points towards management’s consent and emcouragement. Having turned blind eye to regular feasts in the office premises, the management should arrange for ‘naach gaana’ for the employees to entertain themselves post-meal. The readers of this posts at various bureaux should also host food festival by taking cue from colleagues in Patna as the management will not mind such activities as is the case with Patna. Now coming back to Lucknow, a reporter recently called the corrupt union leader MS Yadav to take permission to beat up the manager for banning ovetnight stay of employees post-duty hours. Yadav apparently did not offer protection to the said employee for taking law in own hands to beat up the manager. Imagine for a second if Yadav had given permission then the manager would be lying in hospital now or may be dead as the goon reporter is a muscular man in contrast to frail personaility of the manager who is a thorough gentlemen. It is high time the PTI management takes note of affairs in Patna and Lucknow and take corrective measures otherwise left unattended one should not be suprised if the employees engage in ‘free for all’ fight to setle scores against each other. Hope the PTI CEO Mr. Venky Venkatesh is listening!

    Padma Alva name’s figures in PTI list at no 1973 and Padma Rao figures in the freelance category at 1004. Are these two names of different persons or are one and the same ?
    2. Padma Alva is the Chief Administrative Officer and does not perform any journalistic work but she has been designated as correspondent in the PIB accreditation list. The PTI management should clarify ,what position Mrs. Padma Alva holds. As far as information goes she has not performing any journalistic work since she has been designated as CAO. Why this false statements submitted to Press Information Bureau ?
    The management and Board wants the World to trust them ! Is this the kind of trust they want people to believe?

    • Hemant Kumar:-Has PTI Editor lied to PIB by recommending accreditation for Mrs. Padma Alva who is not performing journalistic work since she has been designated as CAO. Has PTI , Editor , forgotten PIB rules and regulations or he was forced to recommend her name,which is a fraud.At one place, Padma Rao has got accreditation as a free lance journalist and at another place Padma Alva has got accreditation as a PTI correspondent. Are both the same person ? Since, earlier Padma Alva was known as Padma Rao.This needs to be investigated . If it is one and the same person then it is a serious offence .

      Gurudas:-It is very shameful that a senior PTI official Padma Alva has committed yet another act of fraud, forgery and cheating to get accreditation card issued for herself from Press Information Bureau (PIB) for years when she has not been performing journalistic duties ever since she was elavated to the post of the Regional Manager (North) in 1996 at Delhi. This development also reflects poorly on the part of PTI management to project its officials as journalists when many of the accreditation card holders are strictly discharging administrative duties. It is high time the PIB withdraws accreditation cards of Padma and other non-journalist employees/officials for the sake or propriety.

      Guru Das Padma Rao nee Alva is has been a celebrated fraud in PTI for over two decades. PIB accreditation on forged papers is one of many sins that she has committed in service while being a trusted henchwoman of MKR and MS Yadav. The Noida plot allotment scam in which her name figures as a beneficiary proved beyond doubt that she was complicit to organized crime and corruption during MKR era. She has made crores of rupees as cut and commission from PTI’s building projects. In eary years of this millenium, she purchased a swanky house at the cost of Rs. 30 lakh in Noida. Even a corrupt Razdan got fed up with her loot and delegated all her works to Md. Shakeel Ahmed. While Shakeel, a butcher from Bihar, is gone up good, Padma Rao continues in service on extension and has been even given a raise by Rs. 20,000 by new dispensation. She was assigned herculean task of fixing Yadav with the help of Federation of PTI EMployees Union President John Gonsalves, but she continues to be a Yadav loyalist and the two eat lunch together in her chamber on the second floor of PTI building even today. In the backdrop of these facts, there is no point to expect clean up or revamp in PTI under the current management. Govt. intervention in only way out to rectify things in PTI.

    Read this morning a TOI report with catchy headline ‘Make bribing voters & paid news crime : CEC Zaidi’ written by the.mighty legal editor Dhananjay Mahapatra. On the surface of it, Mr. Mahapatra appears to be a well meaning person, but when you dig deep dig this TOI journalist has been a master in playing double role. An ex-legal bureau chief of PTI, Mahapatra has been a pillar of strength to the corrupt management-union syndicate of the leading news agency the details of which all of all must be thoroughly aware. It is an open secret that both the Ex-CEO Maharaj (K) Carpet Razdan and the rogue union leader MS Yadav have always depended on Mahapatra for legal advice in cases filed against PTI, Razdan, Federation and Yadav. A master manipulator like his mentor Razdan, Mahapatra thrived during decade-long service in PTI before moving on to TOI. However, Mahapatra continud to give advice to the PTI Management and union (both were same) on legal issues being tried in various courts in Delhi and elsewhere in the country. Now I must reveal that Yadav got a reprieve in a case of sexual assault on a woman journalist of PTI last year courtsey Mahapatra who used all his resources and manipulative skills to ensure a favourable verdict in favour of Yadav who has publicly expressed gratitude to the TOI legal bureau chief or editor for that. Mahapatra has not done way with free service to Yadav as the latter still seeks legal expertise of the TOI man to wriggle out of land scam and other charges of crime and corruption. A source has also said that the TOI MD Vineet Jain, who is a board member of PTI, keeps a tab on operational activities in the news agency through Mahapatra, but it has not been corroborated. So Mr. Mahapatra, you may be a success story in professional life, but we see you as a legal slut who sold his conscience to back corrupt and criminal elements in real life to subvert process of natural justice to those hundreds of PTI employees who were victims of terror raj of Razdan-Yadav team to which you were and still are a legal advisor

    Many of you may wonder as to why I am posting an old article written by eminent journalist Ashok Tandon in March this year as to how successive governments since independce has helped the news agencies like PTI and UNI in different ways over the years. This article was written after a section of media close to the Ex-CEO Maharaj K (Carpet) Razdan had acccused the Narendra Modi govt. Of meddling in PTI’s independence or autonomy by proposing to oust Razdan ( then 72) and pressurizing the board to pick pro-govt and pro-RSS journalist as the next Editor In-Chief. The power struggle in PTI continued for another four months before a popular website dropped a bombshell by publishing an article titled ‘Who will be the next Editor of PTI blah blah that exposed sad La Affaire in the organization. As many as 89 comments have been written by people, insider and outside, about despotic rule of Razdan and the rogue union leader MS Yadav, corrupt CAO Padma Alva and other officialdom, but sadly no corrective measures have been taken barring that of appointment of Mr. Venky Venkatesh as the new CEO and of course the pervert Razdan is gone for good. The social media is agog with almost daily expose of corruption (with documentary evidence) about corruption by a section of officials and entire union leadership comprising John Gonsalves, Sapan Acharya, besides Yadav himself. All these unillustrious persons are on extension for years. Friends, you will not find this comical situation prevailing in any other media organization. The new CEO simply not incline to crack whips against the corrupt officials and the union leaders. Under these difficult situation, it is no shame in pleading with the government to intervene to rescue the Press Trust of India from disaster as the country can not afford a trusted news organization to go kaput as has happened to UNI. In the end, we express gratitude some respected names in media for accepting our friendship request. While we will enrich ourselves with your words of wisdom, we also request you to reciprocate our hands of friendship by helping out in all possible ways in our unending crusade against corruption and extension-raj in PTI.
    Government a crutch for Indian news bodies

    An Indian international news agency envisioned by Jawaharlal Nehru on the eve of independence still remains unrealised.
    An Indian international news agency envisioned by Jawaharlal Nehru on the eve of independence still remains unrealised.
    What the Society of Indian Newspaper owners has given to free India in the last seven decades is a set of two news agencies — PTI and UNI — both with dwindling presence abroad and still relying on the government for their survival.
    PTI was incorporated as a limited company by some newspapers on August 27, 1947, which in 1949 took over the operations of Associated Press of India (API), a residual of the colonial British transnational news agency Reuters.
    The first Press Commission in its report in 1954 emphasised the importance of a second news agency to compete with PTI. Some other newspaper launched United News of India (UNI) in 1961.
    Wire services’ dependence on government dates back to their infancy. Sardar Patel bailed out PTI in 1949 by persuading the ruler of Baroda to buy bulk of the 10,000 debentures of Rs 100 each, which PTI issued to pay Reuters for its global service.
    The First Press Commission in its report in 1954 recommended various measures for helping PTI to improve its functioning, including increased payment by All India Radio (AIR) and an interest-free long-term advance by the government. But passed strictures against PTI’s “improper management”, “nepotism” and “laxity in the supervision of accounts”. As a result, the PTI board agreed to incorporate some eminent persons as members.
    The Nehru government still provided a long-term interest free advance to PTI to construct a multi-storey building on the prestigious Parliament Street bungalow already in possession of the news agency. Later, the Rajiv Gandhi government helped PTI to computerise its operations. The Second Press Commission in its report in 1979, too, felt that “since news agencies serve not only newspapers but the wide public, we are of the view that there should be provision for public accountability”. That led to inclusion of a few small and medium newspapers on the PTI board. The First Press Commission also blamed the owners of news agencies for losses due to their “mounting subscription arrears”.
    The Fact Finding Committee of Newspaper Economics in its report in 1975 also observed that “the amount of subscription paid by any individual newspaper to the news agencies represents only a very insignificant portion of its cost of production”.
    UNI, facing financial constraints, too has been looking towards the government for assistance in the absence of any assets of its own and sheer apathy of its owners.
    The two Hindi news agencies — Hindustan Samachar working since 1948 and Samachar Bharati launched in 1966 — died an untimely death after they were forced to merge with Samachar during the emergency.
    Later, both PTI and UNI floated their respective language wings — PTI-Bhasha in 1986 and UNI-Varta in 1982. The UNI launched its Urdu service in 1992. The Urdu Promotion Council of the HRD ministry has been providing financial assistance to UNI-Urdu service for its survival. During the NDA government, the then I&B minister Pramod Mahajan proposed that Prasar Bharati, a statutory Public Service Broadcaster, being the single largest subscriber of the PTI and UNI service, should have a say in the board of directors of the two news agencies. But it was rejected on the ground that it will amount to government interference in the independence of two newspaper-owned news services.
    Today, Prasar Bharati (AIR-News and Doordarshan-News) is paying Rs 9.15 crore to PTI and Rs 6.90 crore to UNI in addition to what the government’s publicity arm — the PIB pays to them. Many central government departments, as well as the state governments subscribe to the paid service of PTI and UNI adding a substantial amount of the taxpayer’s money to the two agencies’ revenue. An expert committee of the Prasar Bharati recently submitted a report on “rationalisation” of the news agencies’ subscription to AIR and DD and the Board is currently seized of the matter.

    Guru Das Well said, Mr. Ramesh Parida. The new CEO has started disappointing PTI employees who had initially believed that he could rectify things. Mr. Venky Vemkatesh, PTI CEO, promised a lot, but not actef upon thus far. He is the best judge of his situation, but drift in PTI has to stop at some stage. The post has been written in this context.

    Dear all Board of Directors, Press Trust of India, New Delhi.

    through membership fees and other contribution by employees over the years.
    Pls file some attachments throwing light on organized corruption in the Press Trust of India Ltd (PTI) by the Federation of PTI Employees Union General Secretary M S Yadav and its President John Gonsalves, besides the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Padma Alva.
    The 18-page document clinches corruption by Yadav who purchased land in Delhi with the funds generated
    The said property purchased in the name of an employee Sunil Sehgal in 2011 has been sold to Amit Yadav and Sourabh Kumar, sons of M S Yadav and Shri Krishan.
    Also attached is SiX-page document related to business activities name of “ROSS” by Gonsalves, the right-hand man of Yadav, in Mumbai and how he used PTI’s resources to further his business intereests by keeping the employees and management in dark.
    I have also attached documents of plot allotment at Noida to powerful persons, including PTI Union Leader M S Yadav, CAO Padma Alva, Chief Photo Editor Subhash Chandra Malhotra in 2005.
    In another instance, Yadav circulated his son Amit Yadav’s bank account number for cash deposit by employees seeking favourable transfer, posting and promotion.
    All these illegal activities of Yadav and co took place during the dictatorial rule of the ex-CEO M K Razdan who looked the other way to organized crime and corruption by the Union Leaders and some officials.
    As all of you fully aware that Mr Yadav ,John Gonsalves,and Mr Swapan Acharya working continue on extension ground after their retirement.
    I also inform you that these documents already published on social media like face book and and after knowing the facts no action taken by the management till date and extending their services in pti continue.
    we people hope that all of you surely consider in this issue in your proposed meeting 2nd December Next.because the matter publishing in social media and also news paper industry since august 2016 and hampering the immage of the organization.
    We again appeal to look in to kindly all these charges based on documentary evidences and direct the new CEO to clean up the organization.

    Tks and regards

  40. Mr Hemant kumar, I was going through your comments it was nothing ” old wine in new bottle”, mixing up too many incidences with many names so that the readers get confused. You know it fully well that Management was not at all happy with your performance. Firstly as General Secretary of Northern Region, you did not give any output. In the consequent year you became the Vice- President of the federation. Like in the case of Pankaj Sarkar the Management wanted to throw you out to a remote place out of India. As you did not know your job you begged the Management, misusing your post, requesting a transfer to Jaipur. While Mr Hemant kumar I have raised several questions like money made by you in Petty Cash Bills, by Organising Federation AGM, Federation Executive Meeting etc., which you have ignored to answer. I have also raised a question about Canada matter, which you have not touched. Any tom, dick & harry can understand as to why did you go out of your way to help Yadav’s family members without gaining anything. As all of us know that you are from Orissa, but then when you were transferred from Jaipur to Cuttak, you were not comfortable because you had to do Journalistic job without the extra money you used to get in Jaipur. You choose to be elected to Federation so that, like last time, you could put pressure on the Management to get a transfer back to Jaipur. You were so attached to the sweetness to Jaipur that you did not want to leave. The Manageement transffered you to Delhi but did not give you Journalistic job as they knew the output from you would be Zero.
    Mr. Hemant kumar I still remember that you used to tell us that Padma Alva, then Padma Rao was a Sales Girl in Orissa Emporium, but never told us what you were before joining PTI. After I have briefeed you the character of Jagdeep Gill, that maybe his own wife will not be trusting him you call him a witness to this. When I have raised such and many more questions you try to shut my mouth by symphatising with me and my family.
    Sir, it is because of you Chandershekar, PO, who used to help everyone irrespective of their grades and posts had to stop doing so. I would totally blame you for that he had to go on long leave and retire duing his leave period, because almost everyday you used to go into his cabin, go through many confidential letters which he was working on, come out and expose all the confidential matters for which he used to be shouted at. During your duty hours to kill your time you used to visit all Departments except the place you were posted. Hemant kumar can you just tell me what bussiness you had in Engineering Department where you used to go, sit there speak ill of me & Yadav. Can you please tell me why were you taking my name? Today you are symphatising with me just to shut my mouth, because you are guilty?
    Last but not the least I have raised a question as to what journalistic job you have done in the last 20 years, which you have not answered. Generally Journalist say that Non-Journalist are not educated, thereby they cannot write. I know you retired as senior Journalist putting in atleast 30 years of service, but going through your comment I think I can write better than you.
    I finish my comment with a note that Pguru is not the place where we can fight among us. Please let me know as to where are you staying these day, as I know you have 3 houses in your name. I am in Delhi we can fight face to face. I shall not be responsible or will not be answering what ever you write hereafter like a matured person. I know you are frustrated because you had to leave Jaipur. Bye!

  41. Dear Readers, Of late, one has noted trust deficit in trusts, namely Press Trust of India (PTI) – India’ leading news agency and Tata Trusts, the largest shareholder in Tata Sons, the holding company of the Tatas, India’s biggest corporate entity for more than a century. The ignominious manner of the ouster of its chairman Cyrus Mistry has put a question mark on the TRUST of Tata Trusts headed by Ratan Tata. Similarly PTI has faced media scrutiny for months over the larger than life presence of MK Razdan, who was finally shown the doors, first as the CEO on August 3 last and then from the post of Editor in Chief on September 30 last. Razdan has gone mercifully, but he destroyed TRUST of the organization through his manipulative ways and in the process destroyed administrative and editorial structure as a result the organization is staring at cross roads. However, the Tatas have wherewithal to repair the damage despite sharp criticism over the manner in which Cyrus Mistry’s ouster, PTI is finding it difficult to effect changes in the top echelons of administration and editorial due to stonewalling of reforms by the board members who have vested interests in not giving freedom to the new CEO Venky Venkatesh to take concrete measures for reform. A website had written an interesting article on PTI, dated July 23, 2016, with catchy headlines : Mess in PTI. Who is the next editor of PTI? Will the PTI be the news agency everyone can trust. We are afraid neither of the two searching questions has beem answered till now. PTI is Editor-less even today with VS Chandrasekar in interim charge of the editorial as the Executive Editor. He was granted second extension in September this year and his contract lasts till March 6, 2017. One wonders how he can change editorial works for good when he has only four months remaining in service. He does not enjoy trust of fellow editors and reporters and in one instance recently his authority to put a reporter on duty till specific hours was challenged by a female editor of brusque temperament. Below Chandrasekar, there are eight editors whose leadership skills and integrity remain questionable. At a time when PTI needs manpower at the senior level to restore editorial management, there are no leaders to be had as a result news output and its quality has declined sharply over the past one year with the Editors focusing all their skills to battle out among themselves to prestigious post of Editor in Chief. Let us refrain from talking about journalists at the Metros and bureaux as most of them are appointees of rogue union leader MS Yadav to whom these journalists have to pay a fixed commission annually by hosting lavish union/federation meetings. Let us not digress from the issue and discuss mess in administration with one and only of her kind, Padma Alva calling the shots. Granted second extension in September last by the new CEO with additional package of Rs. 20,000 per month, she spends most of duty hours by scheming the rogue union leader to harass employees. Recently, she transferred a bright engineer with deep knowledge of software in electrical section at Delhi and many more non-journalist employees had duty timings changed by her to punish them for being honourable fellows and hardworking to boot. It is because of her deep interests in the union activities that the appraisal reports and pre-retirement letters of many employees are pending for months. There were reports of hiring of senior people in administration and HR, but the recruitment process has been put on backburner apparently after Yadav threatened lockout if these appointments were made.Having raised these concerns with specific details, the onus lies on the new CEO to restore trust of all stakeholders in the Press Trust of India. There are rumours doing the rounds that the central government is unhappy with mismanagemnet in PTI and may take over it one day to preside over the premier news agency’s transformation as a global player. Investing his trust in the agency to be a competitive media organization at world stage that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi had attended a function last year where PTI signed an MOU with a Russian news agency for sharing of news and related information between the two agencies. I know there are some friends of Gurudas who have access with the Prime Minister. Pls draw the PM’s attention about the festering mess in PTI even under new dispensation with the rots of past regime continuing to call shots even today.

    An open letter to PTI CEO Mr. Venky Venkatesh —————————–
    Dear Mr. Venkatesh, let me begin my note by humbly asking you : Where is the change in PTI that you had promised to effect after taking charge on August 3, 2016? The employees are desperately searching for elusive ‘change’ at the news agency, but it is no where to be found. In fact, the more employees seek change the more it appears to be a case of status quo or even worse that what prevailed under decades-long brutal and corrupt regime of your unillustrious predecessor Maharaj (K) Carpet Razdan. In editorial, MKR’s powerful minions, the poweful KPs, continue to call shots even today from their swanky chambers. The birth day cake that you had officially cut for an ill-tempered editor last month has sent a very bad signal to the employees and well wishers of the organization who were hoping for meaningful change under your leadership. The knife that was used for cutting cake on the fateful day has ended up opening up deep wounds of employees’ battered and shattered hopes when they were yearning for change under you. The birth day celebrations has also given an opportunity to the KPs to flaunt their promoximy with you. I must place on record that these KPs were uncertain of their future till a couple of of months back and were seen building bridges with other editors and editorial staffers whom they had harassed and abused under MKR’s rule. Now their brusque demeanour is there for everyone to see. Let me also throw some light on the shape or administrative machinery. It was due for change, but much to astonishment of all the corrupt CAO Padma Alva of Noida land scam infamy and the Executioner Editor VS Chandrasekar are still calling the shots. Their extended extension with additional remuneration makes one belief that the change will continue to elude the organization for years to come. It has been heard that you have formed a committee with VS Chandrasekar and G Sudhakar Nair as members to decide on transfer and posting of journalists. It will not an exaggeration to say that the hangmen have been assigned job to discharge justice to journalists as the two fellows were very much part of the corrupt syndicate under MKR which killed manpower in editorial and reporting. This is not change and it does not bode well for future of the organization and employees. Now coming to the union, it was expected that the rogue union leaders like MS Yadav, John Gonsalves and Sapan Acharya, all on extension, will get the boot on the basis of evidences in public domain about their organized crime and corruption over the years, but the troika still rules the roost. All three corrupt leaders draw a monthly take home salaries of Rs. one lakh each or even more without any work. Gonsalves is in fifth year of extension and Yadav is set to complete four years in extension, but their departure does not seem to be anywhere in sight. Can the management ask the employees to work hard when it finds itself to be incapable of taking action against the corrupt union leaders who are paid a hefty salary for doing union activities only? Does any other media organization promote and pamper its union leaders like PTI does? This is not change. Similarly, Yadav’s men continue to rule various bureaux as ‘Commission Agents’-cum- Manager even under a new regime and are hosting ‘big money’ union meetings. The Patna Manager hosted a lavish Federation Executive meeting in August last and now the Mumbai journalists are organizing another meeting later this month. When will you change the ’20 per cent commission culture’ in centres? You can see decline in news output from the centres as the managers are busy with making money. But there is no no change in sight as Yadav’s chamchas are firmly ensconced in the managers’ chair. A lot has been written about the managers of Jaipur and Patna, but no no action is in sight. What are you waiting for to effect change as these centres or shall I say , a surgical strike? One can understand that you perhaps did not have full authority to take cracking decisions so long as MKR was around as the EIC after being ousted as the CEO, but now that you are in complete control since October 1, 2016 one can not make out as to what stops you from effecting change. Having said all that, we look up to you to effect change at the earlier as only an inspired workforce can take the organization forward. We wish you luck in endeavour to bring out ‘paribartan’ in PTI. Have a good day.

  43. I was just writing about one H K Shastry the Ex Manager of Jaipur who had helped Yadav in diffrent ways, but like there is a saying ” Chor ke dadi main thinka” Hemant Kumar started writing about Jaipur and Yadav. Mr. Hemant Kumar you are quoting the name of Jagdeep Gill one Chor is witness to another. Jagdeep Gill is the name of that Chor who fooled several Vlass IV employees to become a Sr.Clerk in Accounts Dept today. Yes I am a wittness to this. He was a Peon as I know who used to sit in that Dabba next to OCS. He is such a cunning chap first he became an Excutive Commitee Member during Sarkar’s time he became Chamcha of you and he was made an Attender. Then he became the Vice Presedent during Yadav’s time abusing Sarkar he was made the Jr. Clerk and now I think he is the Sr. Clark and even now playing politics there in Accounts Dept. See that poor fellow Girijashankar Mishra, is still an Attender who was fooled by the person called Gill. You talk to Gill, the way in which he speaks to you in a scarcastic way, be carefull Yadav, I don’t know when it is your trun he would start crticising you and take another promotion so please don’t trust him, don’t think you are too smart he is smarter and cunning. He is fooling nice people like Ashwani Verma. Gill after getting promoted hardly speaks to any Class IV employee, leave alone them he stopped taking to me as I knew all this ( you must have heard The Blue Jakal’s story). Because he is woking in Accounts Dept, and is close to Yadav, everyday evening while going Home he used take a big packet (free of cost) of snacks prepared for Yadav’s party (Joshi told me once when I saw him taking the packet). Once Gill became Excutive Member of The Threft and Credit Society, he and Goutam Lumba the president shared the commision given by a particular gift supplier and wanted to give this particular suppliers product, and we the Commity formed to select the gift to give insisted on a better gift to the members. Hemant Kumar wants such a oppurtuinist to be his witness. Sir, you were here in Delhi and you were the Genaral Secretary we both used to be on logger heads. If you remember one GBM was held in the canteen where you people failed to answer our questions people rushed to hit you, Sarkar, Ranga, you and A K D were cought and beatenup but rest escapped. Hemant Kumar you used your office to be the Manager of Jaipur and make money. If you went out of the way to help Yadav’s family members, explain why? I don’t belive that you did not get anything from Yadav or say PTI Management because of Yadav. Please atlest now tell us what is your real name. Are you a agent of somebody who asked you to write here? Are you really a Journalist, if so why are you hiding your real and full name? Shastry did not do any Journalistic job for over 20 years, are you the same? Lastly how many of your children have settled in Canada? please explain the Canada episode to us, I have seen H K Shstry calling both Yadav and Pathak saying PTI Magement had written to him…………. again my only question is why were you going round the departments where you had no busness, ok at least not every day and talking ill of me in Engineering Dept.? this shows your frustration for being shifted out of Jaipur where you used to make money, tell us the truth.

  44. Some time back I had raised a few questens about H K Shastry, who was the manager of Jaipur, but don’t know who is Mr. Hemant Kumar who is writing about Jaipur and several ways in which he had helped M S Yadav. Well I would like to ask Hement Kumar Ji, as to why did you help M S Yadav? if so why? tell me as to in what way did Yadav help in retutrn to the favours you did for him? I think Hemant Kumar Ji you have to write one thing i.e once you write you choose to be transferd to Jaipur and once you write that the transfer was imposed on you which is right? It is a known fact in PTI that once you become Manager of any centre you make lot of money and that was why you chouse to be the Manager rather being just a Journalist in Delhi. You choose to be the Manager of Jaipur to make money as a Vice President Fedaration. You missused your post. Sir, if I am right, when I used to be with Yadav and Patak when Shastry used to call and tell all the problems and sought thier help. Sir, if I am right Shastry was missing from his post or job for nearly three years and had gone to Canada with out informing PTI Magment, it was Yadav and Patak who had helped Shastry and PTI Managment did not take any action. Sir, can you tell me how many stories did you while you were in Jaipur? Sir, can you tell me how much money you had made being Manager of PTI Jaipur? Sir, even the petty cash bills used to be made by Bhatnager, you did not even do that but took the money. At least you accept that you got the seat to Ydav’s son in Law college, got a seat for his daughter, helped his brothr’s etc. but why? if you did get anything from him. You say that you were transfered to Cuttak, a center with just one person while you were manging more then 12 people in Jaipur? if you were fighting so selflessly why did you get elected from Odisha, to go back to Jaipur as every one knows you are from Odisha. Who wants to come out of his home town? tell me the truth how much money did you make to hold Federation meetings? I know that he came lastly to Delhi because of Yadav. I for one like any one ask as to what other favers Yadav had done for him to be in PTI till now. Lastly you say that no one dared to say anything to you when you were in Delhi because you had the support of Yadav. Mr. Hemant Kumar can you tell what busness you had in Engineering Dept? I am not objecting to your vists to this dept, but why were abusing me, what did I do to you? I have clearly said that you did no Journalistic job as no one dared to ask you because you had the support of Yadav, but still you used to abuse him along with him. This shows the frustration for getting transferd from Jaipur to Delhi, where used to make money. I hope I have touched all the points Hemant Kumar. I know how good a General Secretory you were when you were in Delhi.You were just a Chamch of PTI Managment, that how you got Jaipur where you were made the Manager.

  45. Press Trust of India Chennai harbors criminals as employees who abuse journalistic privileges for all activities other than journalism. Eswar Ramachandran, a Sports correspondent is a notorious criminal who indulges in tantrums to manipulate using Kerala tantriiks to inflict death, misery, torture PTI Chief Editor V S Chandrasekhar New Delhi cares a hood. PTI must eliminate rogues like Eswar and strip them of a Jourealistic cloak

    • Dear Mr. Renugopalakrishnan, this infamous sports journalist has been known for his wrongdoings for decades and it is also known in PTI circles that he enjoys patronage of Mr. VS Chandrasekar, who is not a Chief Editor but Executive Editor ( in second term of extension) with sweeping powers to execute an employee with or without using ropes or weapon. About the ‘criminal’ sports reporter, his bonding with Mr Chandrasekar who goes with initial of VSC, goes back since 1980s that has enable him to get unending extension in service courtesy thr ‘executioner editor’. Let the world know that this sports correspondent had audacity to once claim payment against bills that he had submitted for liqour after one of assignments. He was called by the then CEO-cum-EIC Maharaj Carpet Razdan to come to Delhi to explain his bills, but the crap sports journalist came and cast a spell on VSC who managed the things to help his friend (in trouble for days) return home with promotion and other benefits. It is needless to say that the contentious bills were cleared by the management. Let me tell you Mr. Renugopalakrishnan, you can not force PTI management to take action against the said sports reporter so long as VSC is around in a powerful despite questionable integrity amid reports od his involvement in high-end corruption about which layman employees don’t get to know about so easily. It is the PTI Union MS Yadav who, during his speech at a federation meeting at Lucknow (not sure in 2013 or 2014), had publicly told the members that Mr. Chandrasekar had taken gifts from an edible oil manufacturer at his home and obliged the benefactor by filing news with own initial. VSC never contested the charge which has stuck on his already sullied integrity. A senior journalist, now retired from the premier news agency, has recently confided to this writer that VSC took Rs. 1 lakh (cash in envelope ) from chief minister of a Southern state for covering his election rally. That incident happened some years back. Mr. Renugopalakrishnan, I once again request you againt pinning hope on VSC for course correction as you will not find a more corrupt, selfish and vindictive editorial bureaucrat than him. If the quality and quantity of news output has declined massively over the past one year due to instability and corruption in at top level in previous management, part of discredit should rest on VSC, a psychopath, who enjoys brutalising his junior colleagues. As recently as two weeks ago, he threatened a hardworking journalist from Western region that he will ensure that the contract of said journalist will not be renewed in year. And he had done so when he is also extension and reportedly till March next year. Imagine the fate of those employees who have fallen foul of VSC’s machinations when he enjoyed ‘real power’ under patronage of Razdan and Yadav. It has been learnt that this 62 year-old Editor, who is feared by PTI employees with same level that the dreaded dacoit and sandalwood smuggler Veerappan used to invoke, must not be chosen for the EIC post for which he is angling with backing from some board members from South.

  46. Few days back I got a call from one of my seniors who asked me as to why am I writing about Yadav’s family members. I want to tell all those who are reading this that Yadav is one of the most selfish fellow like Lalu Prasad Yadav. He can go to any extent to get things to himself and his family. I know many more things about his family, but I don’t want to write as I respect women.
    Some of my friends who are writing in this seems to be hiding behind their real names. As a Journalist you must know that Pen is Sharper then Knife. You should be bold enough to write your real name like me. Why people are scared of calling this fellow Yadav as Trade Unoin Mafia, and Razdan a Dictator , are they still scared of these two? as to some day they might harm them. Just writing because someone else is writing is bad. I call Yadav, as he has put me and my family into such troubles ( off course many more famlies too). When I sit to write in, my BP goes up and I make mistakes and I am unable to write.
    The other day I called one of my old friend (not in PTI), who attended PTI Fedaration meeting in Patna. I asked him as to why he attended PTI Fedaration meeting, he said it was yadav who had begged their Union people to come to Patna and vote for him to be made the President of All India Newspaper Employee’s Fedaration. He says he had told Yadav, that they don’t have money to come over their, when Yadav said “don’t worry, I will take care of all the things like up and down tickets, stay, food etc. all off them will get”. When they are getting all these things, “why should we not go?” they were even given costly gifts all at the cost of PTI.
    It is more then 12 years that elections were held in PTI, as they are scared of holding as there is lot of opposition. The present Union’s Office bearers (all) are selfish people. They don’t know the meaning of Trade Union, they want anything and everything for themselves, they are not Employee’s, this is the main difference between me and them, as I am always for employee’s. Had I stood by Yadav, supported him and said “YES” to everything he said, I would have got so many things, but I preferred to be with Employee’s. Some people did fight and did so many things, but later joined him and are liking his BOOTS today.
    Few months back Balram Singh Dhaiha, when we were together attending Court at Delhi, told me ” Bhaskar, I had told you sevral times not to support Yadav and today he has put you into trouble. Yadav’s Gotra is Snake ( Saamp Gotra) and it can bait you any time” and many more things about his family i.e. his daughter his wife etc. but today he is liking Yadav’s boots as he is inside PTI today, and all cases agaist him have been withdrawn because he has joined Yadav’s Union.
    This is one Organisation where I am seeing educated ( If at all) people like Editors, GM’s, RM’s,our highly educated HR Manager, Legal Consultant etc . dance to the tune of this uneducated Yadav. In other Organaisations senior level Officers rule, provided they had the Calibur, leave alone The Moti ( some people call her Mayawati some people call her Hidimba and some one……so great no! she has so many names?) but one thing she is most shame less lady. This Moti can stoop down to any extent. She only knows to cheat people make money and just eat and eat like a Pig. I was there on night duty one day when she was Sr Sub, there was a fight between her and a Trainee Journalist. This Moti was just going around chating with every one doing nothing ( if she knows the job). The Trainee went to that extent of calling her……. saying ” I know what you know about your job and what all you did to be here, get lost” today that trainee left the job after conformation, got married and is in USA, but our shameless Moti is grinning and running behind the uneducated name called Yadav. It is he ( Yadav) who changed our Fedaration from English to Hindi, AS HE DID NOT KNOW English. Well I am not against Hindi, our’s is was first English agency, then came Bhasha.Till he took over our PTI Fedaration used to be English as every one understood, but just because he could not speak English he made it into Hindi.
    Some time back I had heard that PTI is hiring Mr. B S Arora (if I am right) but till now nothing has come up. May I request our Charman to hire him fast. I think he is the right person to be brought in to kick out these Union rogues and the uneducated Donkeys like The Moti, The HR Manager, Bawa, The Nagin ( Legal Consultant) I hear nothing about The Big Mouthed Sapan Achary of Kolkata. He is a leftist who does everything under ground, he must also be making money in a fraudulently. Somebody from Eastren Rigoin should find out about this Big Rouge.
    Many people ( Journalists) got so many things for themselves from Yadav, but today they are criticizing him because others are doing so. The Managers hand picked by Yadav in centres like Patna, Lucknow, Jaipur, Bhopal, Indore, Chennai, Kolkata etc. A special remark about Jaipur is that, after Yadav took over in the Union, he shifted Bhart Bhushan to Delhi, inhumanly knowing that he was handicaped and his family was setteld there. Anybody who was made Managers like H K Shastry, Anil Mathur etc. in Jaipur were given all that they wanted, because Yadav belongs to Ajmer in Rajastan and also…… so many things. The Managers who were posted there, organised Federation AGMs, Federation Exucutive Meetings. The then Manager who was there made lot of money. Shastry, should be thankfull to Yadav, as it is Yadav who stopped the Managment from taking any action against Shastry, as there were lot of complaints against him ( I don’t want to write all that here). Later he was shifted out of Jaipur he was brought to Delhi by Yadav, on the request of Shastry. Just because he was shifted out of Jaipur, he started abusing Yadav. He was put on desk, he did not work there and never sat in his seat. The issue was raised in the editorial meeting. Then he was shifted to Scan Desk, there also he did not work. He would go around abusing Yadav, leave alone Yadav he started abusing me. He would go to Engineering Dept where he had no business and start abusing me, me for what for? I don’t understand. The whole day he is roaming going to every department, people started getting irritated. He would go to that poor fellow Chendrashker our P O, sit there start reading all the confidential letters. The P O Chendrashekar a soft person could not tell him to get out, but the P O was fired for that. Chendarashekar who used to help every one from peon, gaurd to a Journalist had to stop helping because of Shastry. Blame Yadav okay, for the reasons better known to him, but why me? what did I do to Mr. Shasrty?
    Some of you after reading last paragraph might be feeling that I am criticising H K Shasty, no I don’t agree. Yadav the selfish man must have extracted as much as possible from Shastry, as long as he was there like getting his son Amit Yadav into Law collage, getting a certificate in law in a fraudulent way and many other things. When Shastry was not working on the desk, no action was taken as Yadav was so greatful to Shastry and also he was scared that Shastry should not open his Pandara, as Shastry knew all his (Yadav’s) secrets. I think we ask Shastry to write about all the secrets what he knows about Yadav, if he is a real Journalist or may be even Shastry has enjoyed sevral things in the shadow of Yadav. Now it must be the turn of Anil Mathur in Jaipur.
    Some people say that corruption started after the Bofors or Harshad Mehta case in India, but I say that corroption was there even before that in Delhi PTI’s Transmission Room. Rampal Vasudeva who took over as in-charge after Soni, used to openly announce before preparing the duty chart, saying that anyone wanting night duty should deliver one bottle of Whisky and one kg of sweets at his residence in Pocket III, Mayur Vihar. People like Jagat Ram Chauhan, J Subramanyam (JSM) who used to work or do some business during morning hrs would run to his house taking these things. Once I met Jagat Ram Chauhan in Mayur Vihar, with these things. Rampal who later became all India in-charge, never even drank a cup of tea or smoked a cigarette from his own money. Rampal another HR Manager, would stare at any women and run behind them. Even today after his retirement after the age (god knows what was his real age) goes behind any women he sees, waiting for a chance to talk to her. Ramapal Vasudeva, when he got his daughter married handed over a list of things the staffers should give which he has to give in Dowry.
    Once this J Subramanyam had made some bad remark about Yadav, which was carried by G K Gulati, that was when JSM was shifted from Transmission Room to Commercial Dept where there is no night duty. He aproched me and I took him to Yadav and requested him to help him to be brought back to Transmission Room. J Subramayam, was litrally crying like a small child tears in his eyes he even fell at the feet of M S Yadav. He left Yadav’s feet only after he got an assurance from Yadav but later Yadav told me the real story. In the meanwhile a deal was made between JSM and Mehrudin, that whenever they have to go to the court to attend Yadav’s matter, JSM would get his car and take people to the court. J Subramanyam became a good friend of G K Gulati they used have lunch together and he has to pay the bills in the canteen. One day I met all of them in the canteen and I said hello to all, when it was the turn of JSM, he turned his face and later after all of them left he came to me and said ” please don’t talk to me in front of them, I might be punished” the most ungrateful fellow whom I had taken to Yadav and requested Yadav to help him to be brought to Transmission Room. These people used make a lot of money from night duty allowance as well work out side.
    The Genral Secretory of PTI Fedration is a Domestic Help at home. Yadav gets up at five in the morning, switches on the Pump Motar to fill the over head tank before anybody gets up. Then he has to go and fetch Milk for the whole family, buy Vegetables and even cook before leaving for office, as his wife is having some health problem is unable to move about. May be that is the reason why that a cook has been appointed, who is a Lift Operator in PTI, as told by Balram Singh Dhaya to me. He went on to say that this M S Yadav even cheated his own brothers in property matters.
    I for one feel that people like Subimal Choudary, K R Sudaman, Shakeel Ahmad etc. who were in Managment posts should write their experiences of both as to what they enjoyed or suffered in the hands of Razdan and M S Yadav, if they are real Jounalist they should bringing out the truth.
    M S Yadav celebrated his son Amit Yadav’s wedding and the reception was held in Delhi, he had invited all the “Chamcha” beauro chiefs whom he had apponted and staff who were also Chamchas from all over India. From Indore Harshwardhan who is on contract, S K Apte and the Sindhi Dilip Motwani had gone with big gifts. Harshwardhan was given extensions, raise in salary Dilip Motwani who used to come sleep in the office (I have taken photo of him sleeping) was made Journalist. The reception was held to collect gifts from his Chamchas just like Rampal Vasudeva and to check their faithfulness.
    I want to see this M S Yadav, being finished by his own men from the face of earth just like Mulayam Singh Yadav ( M S Yadav) in U P. His own children should kick him out of his house, as he has put them in shame.

    • After reading my friend Bhaskar’s latest comments I can only say that he does not the facts or else he has been wrongly briefed about my transfer to Jaipur and Delhi.
      Yadav ‘s great grandfather if he was alive could n’t have transferred me to Jaipur what about Yadav or Pathak. First of all the transfer was only with my consent . When I took the transfer Yadav and Pathak use to wag their tails behind me and they were nothing . I was offered Jaipur in 1989 by Late Unnikrishnan as MKR did not want I and Pankaj to be in Delhi as he was briefed that if we were in Delhi he could not run his writ and purchase the union.
      Let me tell my friend Bhaskar that you were one of staunch detractor when I was the General Secretary . But I never colluded with Late Unnikrishnan , Late N D Prabhu or Mr. Jolly to harm my detractors. I always took criticisms as a healthy sign and kept me on the right track.
      I agrred to to move to Jaipur on my own accord because I was superseded by my batch mates for four times and no one came to my rescue. When I met Unnikrishnan and protested he told me that MKR wanted that I should be promoted if I moved to Jaipur. Does my friend Bhaskar know this ? Then I was so frustrated that I fought for everyone rights but there was no one to protect my interest. So on the spur of the moment ,I told Unnikrishnan I shall go.
      Does my friend Bhaskar knows what happened. Mr. Rameshwar Tiwari who was already on the way to join Jaipur was asked to join Delhi and a transfer letter was immediately prepared for me so that I may not back out.Bhaskar , please check the facts.
      2. Why MKR did not want me and Sarkar in Delhi? MKR who was aggrieved when Mr. G S Khodapur was made Joint General Manager and delegated the administrative power he approached me to take up his cause in the Union to protest against it. I told Pankaj in presence of Rakesh Pathak and MSY about it how MKR was fuming against Unnikrishnan for delegating the administrative power to GSK. Pankaj said it is the Board’s decision . I did not give any feedback to MKR what transpired between us. Bhaskar should know that was the Vice President of the Federation when I took the transfer and Yadav had no role to play since he was only an executive council member and he could not utter a word those days.
      I had stopped his transfer to Gwalior.
      It I who had sponsored Yadav name when members asked me who could be an ideal person. As you know Pathak had lost to Amitabh roy Chowdhry. But I never imagined that Yadav and Pathak would turn out to be a crook. Bhaskar should know that I had inducted Pathak to Union despite all [rotest from Pankaj, Pieter and others.I regret for it. So , Bhaskar your are factually wrong that Yadav had any role to play in my transfer. And I suffered miserably because of the transfer. Could he spell out what I gained from the transfer Rather my children who were studying in Appejay school had to move out.
      Bhaskar you are terribly misinformed. Anyway ,I do not want to go into details .
      I can understand your predicament and sufferings you are undergoing because of the wrong done to you for not towing the line of MKR and MSY. I sympathise with you and your family for plights and sufferings. Wish you all the best.
      I can only say that he should check the facts before taking up to write.

    • Dear Bhaskar, it was quite interesting to read your latest comment.
      I can only say that you are factually wrong what you mentioned about me.
      I can only say you are wrongly briefed . I can understand your predicament and I sympathize with you . I know you and your family are undergoing through a terrible time.
      If you wish to check facts ,please try to contact Mr. Chandrashekhar and he shall tell you accurately .
      1. First of all when I moved to Jaipur Yadav was a zero and also Rakesh Pathak. And how could he play a role in my transfer ? I hope you should remember I was the Federation Vice President when I moved to Jaipur. So how could Yadav play any role? He was a mere council member that too because of Pankaj Sarkar whom he later backstabbed. It was I who had recommended to the members to support Yadav for General Secretary when Pathak had lost to Amitabh.when they asked me who should be an ideal person . Anyway, I had blundered in mu judgment. I had never imagined that Yadav and Pathak would conspire with MKR against Pankaj and all others to harass them and humliate them.
      My transfer was on my own will . And Bhaskar you should recall that when I moved to Jaipur Yadav and Pathak were nothing and had no influence .
      Now let me tell you why I was compelled to move to Jaipur.
      As you know or may be forgotten.Unikrishnnan at the behest of MKR wanted to introduce contract system, install the biometric attendance . I had stalled it saying what is the purpose of biometric attendance when people are signing the attendance register. On contracts, I and Pankaj had vehemently opposed and said that our people should be given opportunities and we won’t allow any outsiders. Then the question came if nobody from the staff could be found for any particular job could the management hire someone from outside. We had agreed to that proposal in the interest of the organization.You should Bhaskar know that I had stopped the transfer of yadav to Gwalior. Whereas i heard he has been boasting that he had himself tore the transfer letter . He used to shiver in front of Unnikrishnan .
      As far as my transfer was concerned it was I who took it because I was compelled.
      When I was comfortable in Delhi why I should have to Jaipur . Bhaskar you should know that i was never enamored by any kind of managerial posting. You should know I as offered Bhubaneswar and even Hyderabad by Unikrishnnan after R K Behera retirement . I refused .
      But when i was superseded four times by batch mates I approached Unnikrishnanan and protested. At that time Pallaabh Bhattacharya, V Mohan Naryan and KVV were also ignored.
      What Unikrisnnan told me it was stunning for me. He said that MKR had opposed giving me promotions in Delhi and want me to go to Jsipur which I was offered a year ago and had refused it.
      It is not Yadav had played any role in transferring Bharat Bushan. Yadav was insignificant those days and was a zero.Unnikrishnan was annoyed with Bharat Bhusan because he had made PTI’s Russian guests to pay the hotel bills. Perhaps you are not are of this fact. So Unnikrishnan was looking for a replacement and perhaps Sri Krishna was sounded but he had too declined. The offer of Jaipur was with me for almost a year and I had declined it. Lastly Mr. Rameshwar Tiwari if Ranchi was offered and he agrreed. And he was on his way to Jaipur and happened to be in Delhi. And during that time Mr. Ajay Mishra was promoted and all four of us were ignored. And this had happened for the fourth timewith us. Earlier to it VMN, was who was of our batch was promoted. Then GSN was promoted. and MSA . We were not considered because we fought for the rights of the staff. You know that I was General secretary in 1988 defeating Unikrishnnan son Nandan by 100 votes . And Rakesh Pathak and Yadav use to follow us. Maybe you have forgotten. On Subsequent year I did not want contest any election because Bachhwat as Yadav blundered it and we had tom shoulder the blame . If you want to know it could be written next time.
      But I was forced to file nomination and the members showed their affection and I got the highest votes in the council even more than Pankaj Sarker.( Check the records if those are available) and not destroyed. The same year I was elected as Vice President of the federation . Check the record. So when I took the transfer the so-called Yadav of today and no role to play.
      Let also tell you that Razan approached me pleading that the Union should protest against G S Khondapur when he was made the Joint General Manager (Administration). I was quite taken aback when MKR told me that GSK is non-journalist and Union should protest. I had shared this with late Pankaj Sarkar in the presence of Yadav , Pathak and a few others union members. It was Yadav and Pathak who had said that Union has nothing to do with it.Since it was Board’s decision we had no role to play. I did not give any feedback to MKR neither he inquired. But he had nourished a grudge against me for not giving him any feedback as he had no contact with Yadav and Pathak and he could not have approached Pankaj as they did not see eye to eye reason best known to them.
      So when I along with other were superseded by Ajay Mishra for the fourth time and I protested Unnikrishnan frankly told me that MKR wanted i should be given promotion if I moved to Jaipur. And Tiwari was in Delhi to go to Jaipur to take charge from Bharat Bhusan.
      I was very annoyed and told Unnikrishnan to transfer me. Parbhu who sitting in the adjoining room of Unnikirshnnan was summoned and was asked to cancel Tiwari’s transfer and issue me a letter. You should know how desperate was MKR to move me out of Delhi.
      So Yadav has no role dear Bhaskar as you have mentioned. And later Tiwari also became a victim of MKR and he had to quit.Hope you remember all these.
      I ahd to take the transfer unwillingly and no one in the earth could have transferred me if I had not consented. I had to sacrifice for fighting for the rights of the members. Ask Jagdeep Gill. He knows about it.
      And agsin I was a victim of my own friends who got me transferred despite my wife suffering acute spinal stenosis in 2000 to Kolkata even tough I had submitted medical reports and MRi reports. And you say I gained. Somehow I got kolkata canceled but had go to Cuttack. My children education suffered for the second time. At Cuttack, they could not adjust. I got them admitted in two schools but they did not get adjusted . And ultimately, I had to move them to Jaipur for their studies.because they had grown in that city.I had to say Cuttack .How much financial constraint I had to suffer you do not know and I had exhausted sll my leaves for visiting my children every month and paying for the house rent and all other expenses. I got elected to council from Odisha and that irked MKR. And I was brought to Delhi in 2003 on the condition that I should not involve in Union activities. Do you know all these ?
      Even in Delhi, I was dumped as manager ( Administration) without any power but to look after subscribers and this was done to prevent me from involving in Union activities. But when I wrote that management could not change my nature of work without my consent as my appointment was as a journalist referring to Journalist act . MKR then decided to transfer me again to Jaipur because he apprehended that once was moved to the journalistic side I might get involved in Union activities. He approached through Yadav to acceot transfer to Jaipur. But I refused Yadav . Find out from him. I had submitted for VRS and MKR had sanctioned Rs 6.94 lakhs during that period. MKR called to his room and told me to go to Jaipur and not take VRS and the management would cooperate. I was taken aback by his this change of heart and agreed to go to Jaipur and did not take VRS. Perhaps you do not know that when I asked for VRS MKR had asked how to work it out . I ahd given the VRS scjeme of BHEL and SBI to work out on that baisis and he had given it to Sunil Malhotra to study them and see what could be offred to me. all these should be in file. And that’s how VRS was introduced in PTI. Bhaskar you should know the facts.
      So in no way Yadav had got me transfer me to Jaipur. He could be instrumental as he knew I could be a threat to his positon.
      And I have already written how I was again transferred from Jaipur on a flimsy ground for no fault of mine.
      You should have read it on FB.
      I was never asked to handle scan as you have mentioned. During my stay in Delhi no one ever dared to act funny. Perhaps you have no idea. Even your Yadav though he backstabbed me to make Anil Mathur , a stupid person as the manager with MSA and MKR cooperation .
      Because the Jaipur building was coming up and allegedly they have made hansome money with Anil Mathur there which could not have been possible if I was there.
      yes on one point I agrre that MSY has taken lot of help from me. right from his daughter’s admission in the Cardiothoraocic programme in SMS medical college , Jaipur pleading with VC, Principal and health Secretary, His son admission into a law college , His drunkard and debauch nephew appointment as a peon in Jaipur . And even to make his dead inspector brother’s son an inspector in Rajasthanin lieu of his father by pleading with CM . Yadav cannot deny these.
      But I have not got any help or ganied as you have wriiten. If you have any evidence I challenge you to write.
      Yes I worked on my own sweet will and noone could force me even the demonic Razdan.
      I had refused to take farewell and notice for R K Chahabra was only prepared. But , yadav pleaded that I should take the farewell and i agreed and at last moment a fresh notice was typed. I do not know why Yadav pleaded for it. In my farewell speech I mentioned how Razdan pleaded me to go jaipur when U refused Yadav though I my VRS was accepted.
      dear Bhaskar check the facts before writing . Don’t write like an insane person.
      You do not know how sufferings I and my family have undergne and how much I have lost . but you have wriiten all nonsense without veryfying facts. Who the hell has misinformed you. Ask PO he shall tell you.
      yes I can understand your predicament and sufferings. But do not write all stupid things which factually wrong an has no figmets of truth.
      I sympathesize wth you and your family for the harassments and sufferings you are undergoing. Wish you get justice.

    Hi Mr. MS Yadav, it has taken me quite sometime to get back to you for want of relevant documents to keep readers interested about mountain of corruption that Team Yadav has climbed over past two decades. I know you are feeling the heat and lost face among employees and chamchas after expose about federation property that you had sold to your son Master Amit Yadav (master because he is not adult in your belief). Your loss of power and face has come as a huge relief to us. Now we are anxiously waiting for your exit and hope it comes soon. However, I am writing this post in a different context. I have a copy of the constitution of Federation of PTI Employees Union and so I decided to share with friends and ask some searching questions to you on then basis of articles of the said constitution. You know Mr. Yadav I read the constitution many times over to find out under which provision you purchased 200 sq meter land for federation and had it sold to your son Amit Yadav and others. How you you justify illegal real estate of the Federation and whose permission did you take? The answer is none. I also searched for provisions dealing with discretionary powers of the Federation General Secretary to seek land allotment from UP goverment (two plots) and get it too wit help from the then Lucknow bureau chief AM Khan and his eventual successor Pramod Goswami. It happened in 2005. In addition, you have looted crores of rupees from the federation accounts against fake TA/DA bills and payment for airfare and mobile phone bills of yours and your family members, but the Federation constitution does not mandate broad daylight robbery of union funds. There are many searching questions for you on the basis of the Federation constitution the copies of which were deliberately not provided to employees by your team for reasons best known to you. As on the day, you have conceded loss of aura, invincibility and power but I am fairly optimistic that your rightful place in the jail. I have heard that employees have started staring at you after expose of land documents and who knows any of them may seek decisively action against you. I too can bell the cat, but need fresh spark that only you can provide by serving legal notice to me. I am waiting…upto you to make decisive move.

  48. October 4 Times of india (TOI)…….PANAJI: The women police station, Panaji has filed a charge sheet against senior journalist Rupesh Samant before the judicial magistrate first class (JMFC), Panaji, in four cases of alleged sexual harassment .

    Crime branch superintendent of police (SP) Karthik Kashyap told TOI, “We have filed chargesheets in all four sexual harassment cases registered at the women’s police station, before the JMFC.”

    There are around four first information reports (FIRs) registered against Samant for alleged sexual harassment. Police has registered these FIRs under various sections of the IPC. The complainants alleged that Samant used to send them lewd messages.

    The first FIR was registered against Samant on September 24, 2015. Women’s police station arrested Samant on November 1, 2015, after his anticipatory bail applications were rejected by the additional sessions court and high court. He was later released on conditional bail.

    Samant’s name, in relation to the sexual harrasment cases, also featured in a latest report authored by the International Federation of Journalists. The report is supported by Unesco, UNDEF and Norwegian government.

    Sub: Withhold accreditation of Rupesh Samant
    Dear Mr Vinodkumar,
    We at the Network of Women in Media, India (NWMI) write to you on an urgent matter related to the sexual harassment of women journalists in Goa.
    You are probably aware that four separate FIRs were filed by three women journalists and an office helper at a media house between September and October 2015 against Rupesh Samant, then the PTI Senior Principal Correspondent, based in Goa. The complaints amounted to crimes under the Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 and Section 254 of the Indian Penal Code (Criminal Law Amendment 2013) or using criminal force on a woman with the intent to outrage her modesty.
    Almost one year later, we have learnt that the police have filed charge-sheets under Sections 354, 354 (A), 509 and 354 (D) of the IPC. This is a welcome move, and we hope the complainants will ultimately get justice, given Rupesh Samant’s record of intimidating the complainants, absconding and attempting to evade due process of law with impunity.
    We have been deeply concerned by the lack of accountability of Rupesh Samant’s employer, the Press Trust of India (PTI). We have repeatedly raised the issue of Rupesh Samant misusing the good offices of the PTI and masquerading as PTI staff, although we were assured by the PTI in February 2016 that he had ceased to be a formal member of the organisation. Yet, as far as we are aware, PTI has not held any formal inquiry into his misconduct and allegations of sexual harassment till today. This is particularly shocking given that PTI is a government agency and mandated to uphold the Constitution of India and obliged to follow the law of the land.
    Instead, we are dismayed to learn that the PTI regional bureau chief (West) has requested accreditation for Rupesh Samant (whom he calls PTI “senior contributor”) at the upcoming BRICS Summit in Goa (October 15-16). A visiting card that Rupesh Samant has recently been circulating mentions him as “special correspondent” of PTI. Besides what appears to be a misrepresentation of his employment status, we are shocked that the PTI – far from holding Rupesh Samant accountable for multiple cases of sexual harassment – is requesting accreditation for him at an international event where several local, national and international media persons – including women journalists – will be present. Should the PIB accede to PTI’s application for accreditation to Rupesh Samant, who was arrested and is currently facing investigation and judicial proceedings for multiple crimes of sexual harassment, it will be in danger of violating Constitutional values and the rule of law. In addition, given Rupesh Samant’s dubious employment history with PTI, granting him accreditation could amount to a violation of the Central News Media Accreditation Guidelines, whereby only full-time bona fide correspondents can obtain accreditation.
    In this context, we urge you to not approve the accreditation application of Rupesh Samant and also to take suitable action to penalise his misrepresentation of employment status.
    We hope that the PIB will take a serious view of the matter and act at the earliest.

    Sub: Stop Rupesh Samant from masquerading as PTI representative
    Dear Mr Razdan,
    This concerns the representation of your organisation, Press Trust of India (PTI), by Rupesh Samant as Goa Bureau Chief. You are no doubt aware that inquiries are underway regarding several complaints of sexual harassment filed by women journalists working under him.
    As you are aware, these complaints were in the nature of four separate FIRs filed by women journalists between September and October 2015 at the women’s police station in Panaji in Goa, and involved physical and verbal acts of a sexual nature that are crimes under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 and Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code (Criminal Law Amendment, 2013).
    Pleas for anticipatory bail filed by the lawyers of Rupesh Samant were dismissed by a court in Mapusa, Goa, on October 14, 2015, and the Bombay High Court in Goa on October 30, 2015.
    Subsequently, Rupesh Samant went into hiding for nearly one and a half months, but finally surrendered to the police, following protests by the Goa Union of Journalists (GUJ) who went on a relay dharna for several days. After spending five days in police custody, he is currently out on conditional bail.
    As matters stand, the police are in the process of preparing a chargesheet on the basis of information gathered through their probe, and Rupesh Samant has yet not received a clean chit.
    However, he has been sending out news and representing your organisation as a “contributor” by proxy, even though, as has been made clear by PTI officials to the GUJ, Rupesh Samant has ceased to be a formal member of the organisation.
    For a respected organisation such as yours, which represents the fourth estate of our democracy, it is indeed a shame if persons like Rupesh Samant continue to thrive as journalists while inquiries into accusations of serious crimes like the sexual harassment of women colleagues at their workplace are still ongoing.
    We, members of the Network for Women in Media in India, appeal to you to take immediate action and prevent Rupesh Samant from masquerading as a representative of PTI, and tarnishing the name of your organisation. A public announcement distancing PTI from Rupesh Samant would demonstrate your commitment to ensuring a safe workplace for women.

    Dear Ms. Alva,
    Thank you for your response dated January 12 to our letter to Mr Razdan, referring to the allegations of sexual harassment levelled against Rupesh Samant, Senior Principal Correspondent, PTI based in Goa. We understand that on October 5, 2015, a show-cause notice was issued by PTI to him in connection with the FIRs filed against him on allegations of sexual harassment at the workplace, as also professional misdemeanours in the shape of parallel employment with Herald Cable News (HCN). Has there been a domestic inquiry on these charges, and what is the current employment status of Rupesh Samant vis a vis PTI? This seems to be a crucial aspect of the sordid matter.
    We understand that most victims who were subjected to the sexual harassment meted out by Rupesh Samant at their workplace were not employed by PTI, but Rupesh Samant had used his clout and position at PTI to exploit the victims by promising jobs and other professional favours.
    Rupesh Samant continues to file stories as a contributor and reportedly continues to be involved with the PTI Employees Union. We understand he is currently in the process of helping the union to organise a major event.
    In view of the serious nature of the complaints against him we, the members of the Network of Women in Media in India (NWMI), request you to:
    (i) Issue a statement distancing PTI from Rupesh Samant. This will serve to publicly demonstrate the organisation’s commitment to justice and fair play as a responsible media organisation representing the fourth estate in the world’s largest democracy.
    (ii) Conduct an inquiry into the many allegations of sexual harassment against your employee, Rupesh Samant. Apart from the harassment outlined in the four FIRs, a number of other women – both journalists and non-journalists – have revealed experiences over the years wherein he took or attempted to take advantage of them using his position and influence in the media, chiefly as a senior member ofthe PTI bureau. Whether or not the complainants are PTI employees, as his employer, it is incumbent upon the PTI to conduct an internal inquiry as mandated by the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013. As you are no doubt aware, the Act provides for various civil remedies – from penalties imposed on the guilty to reparation for the victims. This process can go alongside the criminal proceedings, as the two tracks provide for different redressal mechanisms.
    We hope that the PTI will take a serious view of the matter and act at the earliest.

    Mr VenkyVenkatesh
    9 August, 2016
    Dear Mr. Venkatesh,
    Congratulations on your recent appointment as CEO of PTI.
    The Network of Women in Media, India, is a professional association serving as a forum for women in media professions to share information and resources, exchange ideas, promote media awareness and ethics, and work for gender equality and justice within the media and society. Local groups linked to the NWMI are currently functioning in several parts of the country.
    We are writing to you to follow up on letters we had sent to Mr. M.K. Razdan (Editor in Chief, PTI) on 7 January 2016 and Ms. Padma Alva (Chief Administrative Officer, PTI) on 1 February 2016 regarding allegations of sexual harassment against a senior journalist associated with PTI in Goa, Rupesh Samant. The letters are attached herewith for your reference. We have not received any communication from PTI in response to our second letter, which called for specific actions from the organisation to deal with the unfortunate situation.
    As we noted earlier this year, official complaints have been registered against Samant by several women who were targets of sexual harassment, with their statements recorded in the presence of a woman magistrate. After the first FIR was filed in September 2015 he went missing and remained absconding for over a month, during which police lookout notices were issued to all police stations in Goa, as well as police stations across the border in Karnataka and Maharashtra and border checkpoints. Samant’s anticipatory bail application/appeal were rejected twice in October 2015. He finally surrendered before a local magistrate on 1 November 2015, was arrested the same day and spent three days in police custody. He has been on bail since and remains so to date.
    An earlier FIR filed against Samant in 2013 in Margao – for trespass and criminal intimidation – has also been brought to our attention. We understand that the women’s police station had cited this previous history while opposing his plea for bail.
    Despite all this, Rupesh Samant appears to be still associated with PTI. Initially he was writing anonymously but, subsequently, his initials (RPS) began to appear again in PTI stories. We gather that, although he has not been officially reinstated, he has been allowed to write for the agency on a per story basis.
    His continued association with India’s premier news agency has evidently stood in the way of the law enforcement process, with the police clearly dragging their feet with regard to the filing of the chargesheet against him even though a total of four FIRs, based on six complaints, were registered many months ago.
    His renewed association with PTI, and his apparent ability to deter legal action, are also causing deep unease and considerable stress among his victims, most of them journalists, who had gathered up the strength and courage to lodge official complaints against him despite his seniority and connections. A number of other women who have also experienced harassment by him are now, naturally, thinking twice about recording their experiences.
    As you are no doubt aware, the fact that sexual harassment infringes upon the fundamental rights of women to gender equality, the right to life and to live with dignity, and the right to a safe environment free from such harassment has been recognised in India since 1997, when the Supreme Court of India formulated guidelines to address the problem. Subsequently the Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 was passed by Parliament to deal with this issue. The right to protection from sexual harassment and the right to work with dignity are also recognised as universal human rights by international conventions and instruments that have been ratified by the Government of India, such as the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).
    We believe the news media, constituting the Fourth Estate and serving as watchdogs of society, must lead from the front on such issues. We urge you, as the head of an important media organisation such as PTI, to take serious note of this matter and demonstrate that there is zero tolerance for such behaviour within the agency and/or by anyone employed by or working for the agency in any capacity.
    In this context, we trust you will look into the allegations against Rupesh Samant and take suitable action to ensure that he cannot use his apparent, continued association with PTI to stand in the way of justice for women who have gone on the record about the harassment to which they have been subjected by him.
    We look forward to hearing from you about action taken in this regard.
    With kind regards,
    Yours sincerely,
    Ammu Joseph, Rina Mukherji, Laxmi Murthy and Kalpana Sharma

  49. Dear Bhashmasur, oh so sorry I meant Bhakstasir, couple of days back you had deified Sumir Kaul as a great reporter who has broken number of exclusive stories for PTI and how the Ex-CEO MK Razdan stood by him in thick and thin. I had maintained that SKL has every right to flourish despite his limitation in terms of language and understanding of political issues. He was patronized by MKR who removed or sidelined dozens of senior journalist and some of his talented batchmates some of whom are working with international media houses and another has earned a big name for himself as a filmmaker and a critic. Even one of his batchmate is also an Editor in the same organization, but he never craved attention nor has gone to town making tall claims about the stories he might have broken for the premier news agency. You know Mr. Bhaktasur as you enter into 40s and 50s you don’t brag about your achievements but seek respect of the colleagues in a humble way, but both you and Sumir Kaul has not displayed any grain of decency on way to making excessive claim about work. Enclosed below is two set of news, one filed by Sumir Kaul in REP no and the other one a transmitted copy. Read both pieces carefully and make you own assessment about Mr Kaul’s quality, accuracy and language as the transmitted copy done by SPG is entirely different from what Kaul filed initially. Now stop shouting from rooftop about Sumir Kaul’s disproportionate stature as an Editor or reporter. He will be judged on what all he achieved under MKR’s patronage for 21 years and how he fares over the next decade or so. You derided me in very offensive language, but it is my turn to return the fire that you better continue to lick Sumir Kaul’s dick if it helps you to curry favour from him. It is not possible or even necessary to match other in terms of achievement, but it is in one’s own hands to earn respect from people. But being a Bhaktasur or Asur, you will never understand about these virtues.

    “Win hearts of people” in Kashmir, Azad tells PM Modi
    New Delhi, Aug 6 (PTI) Opposition Congress today asked
    Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “win the hearts” of the people
    of Kashmir, where the situation is turning “too dangerous”.
    “I would request your kind indulgence for taking urgent
    steps to win the hearts of the people of the state and also
    ensure that the law and order situation is restored at the
    earliest,” Ghulam Nabi Azad, a former Chief Minister of Jammu
    and Kashmir, said in an open letter to the Prime Minister.
    Azad, the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, regretted
    that there was no recognition of the Kashmir situation at
    national level.
    Making a pitch for “political process” to find a solution
    to the problem, he reminded the Prime Minister that even in
    the face of worst provocations past governments had never
    abandoned it both on external and internal fronts.
    “The initiative taken by the then Prime Minister Atal
    Bihari Vajpayee that Kashmir problem can be solved within the
    ambit of ‘insaniyat’, Jamhuriyat’ and Kashmiriyat” followed by
    Delhi-Lahore bus service, was appreciated by one and all,”
    Azad said.
    Similarly, the UPA government under Manmohan Singh took
    some bold confidence building measures to win the hearts of
    the people of the state by starting a bus service between Uri
    and Muzafarabad, and Poonch and Rawalkote.
    “But, unfortunately no such initiative is forthcoming
    from the present NDA Government under your leadership,” he
    “Neither is the government showing any urgency to deal
    with the situation nor is it taking other national political
    parties into confidence as was demanded during the discussion
    in the Parliament,” he said.
    Azad termed as “unfortunate” the government having
    “forgotten or ignored” lessons from 2008 and 2010 agitations
    when the then governments had appreciated the political
    nature of the problem and at least initiated a political
    process by sending an All-Party Parliament delegation.
    He said in 2010 an-all party delegation vsited Kashmir and
    met a cross-section of people. Subsequently, the interlocutors
    were appointed. They carried out wide ranging discussions as a
    result of which the anger and resentment subsided.
    “Today there seems no such effort on the part of the
    Central Government. What is New Delhi waiting for? When is
    Government of India going to wake up? The use of pellet guns
    is not a solution at all,” he said. More PTI SPG/SKL SK

    Azad said there is a complete breakdown of law and order
    and “today even elected representatives are also facing the
    ire and are not able to connect with the people. They are
    running away from scene which tells us about the reality on
    the ground.”
    He said the “silence” of the Centre has further compounded
    the problem and asked the government to change its attitude
    towards Jammu and Kashmir.
    “The Prime Minister should open his heart to the people of
    the state,” he said and added that the present “mishandling”
    of the situation and “wrong policies” of the Centre has
    disturbed the socio-political and economic scenario of the
    “The unrest has travelled to places not seen even in
    worst times,” he added.
    Azad assured the government that as a responsible
    opposition, Congress will support any endeavour to restore
    peace in Jammu and Kashmir. “But it is the central and state
    government which have to reach out to the people and create a
    sense of security in Kashmir”.
    “As a responsible member of Parliament from J and K, I
    feel this as my duty to inform you that the situation in the
    state is turning too dangerous as a result of which, a large
    population is feeling insecure”, he said.
    He reminded the Prime Minister that Kashmir has been
    locked down for one month now. Curfew is in for the last 29
    days and communciation blockade is near complete. “So far more
    than 55 people have been killed and almost 7,000 civilians and
    security personnel injured”.
    Noting that more than 100 civilians have lost their vision
    as a result of pellet guns, Azad told the Prime Minister that
    today there is complete breakdown of law and order in the
    valley. PTI SPG/SKL SK

    Gurudas:In a huge embarrassment to our great organizations, Network of Women in Media, India (NWMI) has written to centre requesting for cancellation of accreditation of a charge-sheeted journalist Rupesh Sawant, a colleague of ours in Goa and most importantly a henchman of the rogue union leader MS Yadav. Sawant, PTI bureau chief in Goa was sacked by the then CEO MK Razdan after he was booked in a rape case. But in a development that speaks of collusion between Yadav and Razdan, Sawant was hired, this time on contract, as the union leader needed Sawant’s services to organize the Federation AGM, a showpiece event earlier this year. A willing accomplice of Yadav, Razdan even ignored various letters written to him by various media bodies in Goa, and gave institutional help to the accused employee to manage the case against him. The attachments enclosed below leave us in no doubt that Sawant has brought disrepute to the organization, but he was not only tolerated by the previous management but was given various incentives after his re-appointment. It is this kind of organized crime and corruption by Razdan-Yadav duo, with minions like Rupesh Sawant in the state capitals, that we have been raising after voice over the past 70 days. Hope the CEO Mr. Venky Venkatesh takes cognizance of Sawant’s crime and takes appropriate action. Let me yet again apprise him that all managers in key state bureaux are Yadav’s men and they too should be removed if our organization seeks to regain credibility. We continue to have faith in you, Mr. Venkatesh. Please let us know that you mean business.

    Gurudas:Further to yesterday’s post about sexual harassment charge against Rupesh Samant, a blue eyed boy of the rogue union leader MS Yadav, find enclosed a couple of attachments about an ongoing online campaign being run by a website seeking action against the tainted reporter at Goa. PTI would not have faced embarrassment if the ex-CEO Mk Razdan had not buckled under Yadav’pressure to employ Samant on contract basis after sacking him in the backdrop of FIR lodged against the latter. The erstwhile management headed by Razdan also blatantly ignored petition sent to him by a journalist body from Goa seeming action against Samant. The said letter is available on social media. Samant was a product of a corrupt system ran for decades by Team Razdan/Yadav and the ongoing crusade for action against the tainted journalist has busted the.myth about Razdan being a great leader. Hope the new CEO takes note of the signature campaign and removes Samant at once. Let me once again repeat that Samant came to fame earlier this year for hospital a lavish Federation AGM hopefully the last under Yadav’s dealership.

  50. These post available on FB: for good knoledge for all AS activities addopted in the PTI during MKR regime.

    Kundan Kumar:By far your best post, Dada. You have put the entire things in perspective about the great organizations and the role of individuals and union in its growth since inception. Nobody could have written it better than you ans I salute you sincerely. I have just one point to make that people in power in union and management have enjoyed destroying careers and perpetrating worst kind on atrocities on those refuse to fall on their feet like a slave. A few careers made and hundreds and thousands destroyed do not speak well of the people in power in management and union. There is a quote by a philosopher which says, ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Just to throw light on my persecution, a PTI official with Noida plot scam infamy wrote in March this year asking me to perpetually take interim charge of the office in the absence of the.manager despite her claim tha I have never been good at work. These officials are so drunk in power that they don’t detect contradiction in their own writings. I will post that mail for reading by you all. Fear is the only thing that has restrained employees from speaking out, but take my case…I have chosen to stand up and expose corrupt activities of a section of management and entire union. I know I can be harmed physically and professionally which is already on at Patna. But I am not backing down come what may as I have become used to live in miseries, but will strike with full force with pile of documents available with me. Keep writing, folks

    Yesterday at 4:01pm ·
    Dear Bhaktasur,
    Nobody has questioned the former CEO about his writing capabilities . He has an excellent command over the English language. He has no match in the present set up. The executive editor is also no match for him.
    He is being criticised for his satanic attitude and not for anything else. Had he been a benevolent dictator the things would have been very different. He would have been highly admired and respected. But, regretfully, he became a megalomaniac He supported by unethical federation leaders turned a brute.
    He derived sadistic pleasures by humiliating and harassing the employees for no reason.s.
    His more than two decades rule in PTI ruined the life of scores of persons and destroyed their families . Do you know this? His 7665 days could be compared to that of Caligula of Rome.
    Employees despised him for his disgusting behaviour and nepotism .
    You have also mentioned about his 21-year rule as the period of growth and great achievements which are factually wrong.
    From your post, it appears that you do not know anything much about PTI . Otherwise, you would not credit the former CEO for all achievements.
    You should know that PTI was not built overnight . Hundreds of people had dedicated day and night to the growth of PTI under the leadership of Late Neelkantan, N R Chandran, Unnikrishnan and the former GM G S Khondapur, who was a victim of a conspiracy which involved some federation leaders and the former CEO. The fact you may not be aware of. How the former CEO got prime posting in London and U.S.A you may not know. He got those posting because of his proximity with an independent director of the Board. It is alleged that he cultivated the director and that’s how on his recommendation he could these two prime posting.s. It is not that at that time there were no other competent persons in PTI when he got these postings through manoeuvrability. Even he hatched a conspiracy aligned with a few purchasable union leaders to get a Joint General manager ousted. These gangs ensured that he was given the wrong financial status, which he placed before the board. Having no inkling of the conspiracy, the Jt. GM placed the wrong financial figures before the Board which annoyed the then Chairman .
    A furious chairman shouted at him and humiliated him, saying that had he been the GM of the paper he would have sacked This was insult was enough for an honest man to resign and he did . And this is what he wanted. The Board appointed him as GM as no other person was immediately available. Referring to your trainee reporter, you should know that in PTI everybody has to climb the ladder from a trainee. But the EX=CEO got the convention changed in his lust to be an eternal fixture in PTI.You should know that a former Editor highly respected ,who had brought him to PTI while he worked as a reporter in Tribune had said: ” it was blunder he did by bringing the former CEO to PTI”. If you happen to go and visit him you could ask him .
    After he became the GM he ensured that no person who could be his potential rival and threat to his post should stay in PTI. So he intentionally humiliated them so they leave. The victims were Arun Kumar, an excellent journalist, those who have worked with him knows about him. Likewise, one by one good person left PTI for being harassed by him. Karnik, M V Balaji, R C Rajamani, H R Ramachandran, T.N. Ashok, Sri Krishna.
    One person, L K Joshi was very much harassed and badly treated by the former CEO had he was always in depression and stress till he lived.
    Please find out why Krishna Anand , an honest person, was overnight removed from the post of RM (North),Why PO also a nice person ,who was on leave did not come to the office for a day and chose to get retired on leave. Find out how two very senior persons Narayan Swai and Shashi Kumar suffered. Narayan Swami had one year for retirement but he could not tolerate the humiliation and chose to take a VRS at the age of 59. Presently there some senior persons who are neglected and they feel suffocated.
    Similarly , Trade unionist Pankaj Sarkar, who was much disliked by the former CEO was his victim. He aligned with one Rakesh Pathak and M S Yadav to ensure that Pankaj Sarkar and his Uncle Naren Sarkar were ousted from the Union. And they succeeded in their plan. Sarkar and his uncle were defeated in Federation elections in Lucknow..Soon after that Naren Sarkar who had got an extension was removed. Pankaj Sarkar was transferred to an insignificant place like Kathmandu much to his unwillingness as his family could not move because of his children education. Those persons whom he had groomed in Union back stabbed him allegedly aligned with the former CEO And the same persons for the past 35 years are in their home town.
    Pankaj who fell sick in Kathmandu pleaded desperately to come back to Delhi so that he could get treatment, He had developed a brain tumour.
    But , all his pleadings fell on the deaf ears of the ex-CEO. And the s union leaders who use to hang around his house and ran behind him did not come to his rescue. Mr K S Tomar who was Hindustan Times Correspondent posted at Kathmandu at that time has narrated the sufferings of Pankaj. At present Tomar is the Chairman of Himachal Pradesh Public Service could verify it how Pankaj suffered and the former CEO conscience did not pick to bring him back. Ultimately Pankaj died. His family underwent untold sufferings after he died. What is more inhuman and heinous was that Pankaj’s nephew who was an excellent photographer was also harassed and he had to quit. Sometimes, in 2010, Pankaj’s daughter who got selected in PTI as a trainee journalist and she was doing well on the desk. But as soon as it was known she is the daughter of Pankaj Sarkar she was not treated well and she had to leave, One could verify it.
    The former CEO systematically saw that all those persons who could be a challenge to his position left. And he succeeded in his mission.Thus vacuum was created . A gap of 14 years was created between him and the batch next to him. He was of 1965 and the next immediate batch was of 1979.
    He and the federation leader allegedly hatched a big conspiracy so that he continued without any hurdles. Every time Board mooted to replace him he instigated his friends in the federation to protest . The federation wrote letters threatening to launch an agitation if any outsider was appointed as CEO and got the board to keep the decision in abeyance. Thus how he survived these long time. Ask the leader how many times he had written such letters to protect the former CEO. Earlier,never before federation had interfered in Boards work.
    At the behest of the Federation leaders, he posted all those persons in state capitals as managers whose sole duty to his mobilise fund for the federation. You have also said something like union bazi. First f all there is no union in the agency. It is finished long back. What is left is the skeleton . The present federation is run by those who have not conducted elections for last 12 years. Find out whether any election has been held since 2004. All is a total farce.
    Regarding growth . it is not because of any efforts made by former CEO to expand the news service. If the record is verified the main revenue comes from rents and TV channels. Hardly any new big subscribers have been added to the list. Why had tariff not been raised for several years? It was because to keep the Board of directors happy who are subscribers . Only the tariff was hiked by 15 % in 2010 when Majthia Wae Board had to be implemented. If there was growth where has the money gone Why the arrears have not been paid till now?
    Read about the underhand dealing between the federation and former CEO to keep the payment in abeyance.
    Why all the building projects went to only CBRE and not to others. Why no tender was invited for the other to submit their tenders for the building projects. Find out if you can to know the truth.
    A lot could be written about the nefarious activities . There is an allegation that marble in Jaipur Building which hardly cost Rs 100 per sq ft has been billed for Rs 1200 per sq ft. Allegedly , how a federation leader could get posted in Jaipur one of his relatives in the pretext of supervising the building construction . He is being paid Rs 50000 without any work Who sanctioned his appointment and why ? Was there no other employee to be posted . Was application invited for such a post ? Find out to know the truth?
    As far the reporter is concerned , by his own admission, 41 others joined with him . Have all of them have been promoted as editors?
    Everyone in PTI works and they are paid for it.
    PTI does not function by a single person as claimed by you. All have their contributions for the growth of PTI including you.
    MKR could never be called as a good journalist by any means.
    A person has to possess certain qualities to be a good journalist.
    Journalism is a mission, not a white collared job.
    A journalist is must fight for justice, speak and champion the causes of aggrieved people in the society and completely impartial and unbiased.
    I quote Justice Dave of Supreme Court who said :
    that a judge must have a heart and understand the emotions as the brain work alone will never do justice to the people.
    “A judge must be a person with emotion, with heart. The brain alone
    won’t do.
    Justice Dave said while speaking at the farewell function, given to Justice V Gopala Gowda.
    The same is applicable for a journalist too. He has to have a heart and understand the emotions and brain alone cannot do justice. And he should have compassion for others. The former CEO has a good brain . All these three qualities are essential to making a good journalist. One can be a superb writer . His command over language is excellent . But one cannot be a good journalist unless one possessed these three qualities. The former CEO has a brilliant brain and very sharp .If he had not himself surrounded by psychophants and respected the sentiments of the employees with a human touch he would have been admired and highly revered.
    As regard to the posting of the reporter, he is perfectly alright f to write praising his mentor since he as got a lot of privileges otherwise he would have been accused of an opportunist . In his position had anybody else he would have also written the same thing.
    This posting is not a rebuttal for your posting but to apprise you about the happenings in PTI of which you may not be aware of. You may also agree and disagree.

  51. Dear Bhaktasur, must compliment you for dishing out compliments on about Sumir Kaul and his father figure MK Razdan for their contentious achievements. Let me begin my reply to your tributes to MKR with these words that nobody has issue with his joining as a trainee in PTI in 1965 and rising through ranks to become CEO-cum-EIC. Even his worst critics credit him with shaping growth the premier news agency during his extended tenure. People have problems with Razdan for what all did in the past 21 years, namely forcing competent people in management and editorial to quit in order to clear predictable growth of his pet KPs which means Kameene Pandits to us. Razdan manufactured monsters like the terrorist MSA, Hidimba Padma Alva and Veerappanesque VS Chandrasekar who torturer employees at his behest as a result an employee in Hyderabad committed suicide. MKR also fathered a dreaded union leader MS Yadav who legendary exploits of corruption have been exposed recently. Razdan and Yadav worked like an underworld gang with the former getting to promote sucker KPs and carry on with flourishing carpet business, while the crook Yadav was given franchise of metros and state bureaux which he milked optimally to make crores of rupees. I hope, Mr. Bhaktasur, you must be aware all managers in bureaux are Yadav’s men and see decline in quality and quantity of news items in the past one year. I assume you are not blind. If Razdan was such a visionary leader then how come he has left behind PTI in the hands of spineless people on extension – Padma, Chandrasekar, Subhash Chandra Malhotra, Hirok Chaudhury and many others who were given extension have been forcefully retired. A leader had succession plan, but you can’t expect the same from a dealer with Razdan was all his years in profession. Now coming to Sumir Kaul, nobody has been rewarded for slavery to his master that him. Do you know that he had started bringing delicious vegetables to Razdan’s house months after his joining? Do you know why he was given the beats like IB and CBI? It was meant to protect Razdan from cases filed for economic offences. Kaul may have broken some news aboit Kashmir, but does he have ability to edit political copies of other states? Does he have perspective of national politics to write quality copies, the answer is no. But it does not mean he should not grow in job. Besides success, you are also judged on indices like integrity, fairness, benevolence and other such characteristics which I am afraid to say none of the KPs have in their blood. We are thankful to the providence that PTI, a great institution, has been freed from a super terrorist like Razdan and it is a matter of time some, if not all, corrupt KPs posted in Delhi and abroad will be shown the doors. And lastly, you have said that I am hiding behind Burqa. In that case, you too are taking cover under Burkini as Bhaktasur can not be your identity.
    Bhaktasur October 7, 2016 at 11:25 PM
    Champu whatever be your real name. The fact that PTI is undisputable leader among all the news wire service because it was led by a person like Mr Razdan. Whatever you may accuse him of, he rose from the ranks of PTI. If losers like you couldn’t rise thats your problem. Seniority. Kiss my ass. Times have changed. Those who perform will rise. You cannot even touch the level Sumir Kaul enjoys in journalism. Press release or he said she said is not journalism. He broke some of the best stories of PTI. You guys were busy in Union baazi when people like SKL were getting stories. And giving a beat doesn’t mean the person will excel in that. How did Sumir Kaul grow in the beat so much if he was not competent enough. You all are frustrated lot who were good for nothing except trying to lick asses of politicians. Mr Razdan joined in 1965 like a trainee reporter how did he become GM and then Editor in Chief. Were board members idiots? And you mean to say they remained idiots for 21 long years. The person himself was a good leader who led from the front. Sumir Kaul is an ace reporter who can run for money to people like you who know to comment in a “burqa”. Good riddance you guys are not there. I hope this WEB SITE does some stories about a present politician, who claims to be conscience keeper of this govt, and his relations with NEMI CHAND JAIN and LTTE. NAAM To SUNA HOGA

  52. Gurudas:Please find enclosed an attachment in which a PTI Editor has poured his heart out to pay his tributes to Maharaj K(C)arpet Razdan who mercifully retired on September 30 last. I am talking about Sumir Kaul whose powerful prose of slavery to his master will leave your eyes moist in happiness. Mr. Kaul has recounted stories of his own triumphalism under patronage of a fellow Kashmiri Hindu refugee with specific details as how he prospered under corrupt and dictatorial rule of MKR for over two decades. He says that Razdan was a God to him and some other fellow KPs and how he nurtured all chelas/chelis and ensured their elevation in senior management as Editors. Mr. Kaul, you have every right to eulogise about your benefactor who was no less that a terrorist who inflicted brutalities on his employees and enjoyed their pain and suffering. In addition, he was a womanizer whose tales of exploitation of female colleague for promotion and foreign posting are known to everybody. The union leader MS Yadav has on many oçcasions regaled tales of Razdan’s sexual exploitation of women and red light remaining lit in his chamber for couple of hours almost daily. Now coming to corruption under the dark MKR era, he not only swindled crores of rupees under different heads but also enriched his squad of white collared goondas in a rung lower than him in management as those names don’t deserve mention. Do you know Mr. Kaul how many crores went down the drains during Razdan rule on litigation involving management and union on one side and hundreds of employees on other side? Why do employees have to courts for justive if the management is fair and benevolent to them? Terrorist is a very light compliment as his despotism mirrored the brutalities of Idi Amin, a ruler of Uganda in decades gone by. I wonder if some people in Uganda still worship Idi Amin like a God as you have done by highlighting ‘positive’ aspect of a devil !!! Look at the editorial in shambles and not to speak of decline in manpower and quality of reporting in Delhi, Metros and even in states. Who is responsible for mess and sticky one if it is not Razdan. A Herculean effort will be required to undo the trail of devastation that Razdan has left behind. The Extension racket that Razdan institutionalised during last couple of years of his term has left the organization gasping for breath. Have you ever heard a media organization who entire editorial and administration apparatus was ever run by all persons on extension? Deny this fact if you can… Now coming back to your own progress from Sub-Editor to Editor, it was known to even a layman that the KPs were bound to get everything as a right and entitlement when a ‘father figure from.the same community is the boss. Do you know how.many people, imcludimg talented.reporters were shunted out and made to exit to clear the decks for progress of KPs. Lastly, you have quoted a particular sentence in which a known coward like Razdan has brushed aside heavy criticism in social media and remember this fact that it was he who had used the medium to attack the government when he was set to removed from organization in February last. While we express sympathy for you for loss of a father figure, we, hundreds of employees, are convinced that Razdan should go to hell.
    We are living in an era of Press-titution and if one person defined the slang in most perverse manner, it wasMaharaj (K) Carpet Razdan during his brutal rule of over 21 years. The accounts of corruption during his regime are exploding every day on social media which this bloody Dhritrash Described as cowards. Razdan loved to raise, feed and promote Kuttas (dogs) in editorial, administration and union and make them lick his libido and shoes for raise in salaries and allowances. There is a corrupt union leader with the name of MS Yadav who blatantly got Federation property transferred in his son Amit Yadav’name. Yadav had absolute support of MKR. I will go as far as to say that if Indira Gandhi created Jarnail Singh Bhindarawale, Razdan followed his political mentor’s mantra and created a monster called Yadav. Razdan also allowed Noida plot allotment to take place and did not take any action against the culprits – Padma Alva, Rakesh Hari Pathak, Subhash Chand Malhotra and Yadav. See for yourself names of Padma Alva and Subhash Chand Malhotra in the list of senior management officials in the PTI Website. When the case of corruption goes into courts at some stage, the management, old and new, will be asked as to why the names of corrupt officials were displayed on PTI website despite corruption charges against them. If the Supreme Court can tame BCCI, then PTI will have to answer for corruption by Razdan and his pets.

    Hemant Kumar: Sumir Kaul has every reason sing paeans for his mentor since he has got everything undue on a platter without efforts superseding many seniors. He joined in 1995 and became an Editor within 15 years. Whereas his seniors of 1979 languished in the post news editor and deputy news editor . How he reached that position all PTI people know. On one hand, he daily rubbed his heel in front an unethical leader and ensured VIP treatment in Kashmir and so that he kept mum when his mentor rewarded him with all undue promotions ignoring his many year seniors. Desk people know who dealt with his copies how deserving he is to be an Editor! The other great service he did was to ensure that complaint file listing alleged misdeeds against his master shelved in IB did not reopen. The complaint was made by a retired very senior journalist of PTI. An enquiry was ordered by the home ministry. But, unfortunately, the BJP government lost the election and a Congress Government came to power. So his master who had good clout in the new government got the inquiry order scuttled and the complaint shelved. It is alleged that Sumir was assigned the IB beat purposefully so that the file never see the light.
    Do not want to elaborate more because people in the agency knows the in and out of all these persons how they have got all undue promotions , favours and illegal privileges by serving two masters .

    Ramaswamy Nagai: such comments are natural as he owes the position he enjoys now to MKR. A kashmiri helping fellow kashmiri. If MKR had continued PTI would have been named as Kashmir Trust of india

  54. Yesterday’s post about malpractices of a PTI-Bhasha reporter at Patna in connivance with the Manager there has made life difficult for some employees. These employees were threatened with dire consequences if they failed to disclose identity of thr person who made those documents available in public domain. Instead of taking the blame for mess at Patna Bureau, the Manager has threatened at least three employees with transfer and penal action by invoking his proximity and patronage of MS Yadav, the all powerful Federation of PTI Employees Union General Secretary. The employees have conveyed that they are scared for life and safety in the office and need protection of the management. In the meantime, reports have come from Jaipur that the management has taken note of social media reports and ordered that the Jaipur office should remain open from 8 AM to 8 PM only. It is high time management applies the same medicine to cure Patna office of perennial sickness and rot created by Team Yadav. Pls share this post as much as possible so that the management intervenes to remove fear of persecution from the minds of terrified employees. At the same, a probe should be ordered into various acts of omission and commission by Anwar Sayeed with patronage from the Manager and union leaders.

  55. opened a pandora’s box about corruption in PTI and other management-created mess. More that 60 comments have made by people about corruption in centres, namely Jaipur, Lucknow and Patna. Here is an introduction to corruption at Patna based on notes and authentic documents by some staff about how a particular employee Anwar Sayeed (EMP. No. 2746) has been taking undue advantage of his proximity with previous management and its representative there to lead a privileged life at work. As per the documents made available by the employees, Sayeed, a senior PTI-Bhasha Correspondent for nearly a a decade at Patna, has committed several transgression last month alone. He applied for sick casual leave for three days from September 13, but marked in attendence sheet as Sick Leave (SL). In the subsequent week the Manager allowed him two weekly offs the proof of which can be verified from attachments. Now carefully read the Appraisal Report about Sayeed in March 2010 by the then Manager Ajay Kumar. Kumar has, in a confidential appraisal report, had described Sayeed a man of dubious character and credential, beside being a garrulous employee and reporter with inadequate ability who must not be given hike at all and he be put under observation for three months. The management acted on Kumar’ appraisal report and denied Sayeed a raise for 2011. However, the sad demise of Kumar in September 2012, changed Sayeed’s fortunes like winner of a lottery. As he grew close to Kumar’successor in subsequent years, Sayeed”s CTC has doubled in a matter of four years on the basis of the Manager’s effusive report. The Manager is so benevolent on Sayeed that he gets to do only translation works and the time gap happens to be at least couple of hours behind report by PTI journos. While other reporters, including the Manager, come on duty as per schedule, Sayeed never reports for duty before 3 PM as a matter of habit. The Manager’s plainspeak to him on duty timing has not yielded desired results as per note by employees. The Manager, however, never pushed the issue with Sayeed given his unique quality to collect advertisement for union meetings which the incumbent manager has hosted with regularity since 2013 and even before that. With protection of the Manager, Sayeed’s misconduct with the employees have been legendary. He not only questioned publicly the employees’ right to get Wage Board Awards, but routinely intimidates on some pleas. Besides the Manager, Sayeed enjoys patronage of MS Yadav and Padma Alva as per employees’ note. Sayeed’s excesses have become intolerable and they want protection from the CEO Mr. Venky Venkatesh. I am tagging you all with request that Sayeed’s misdeminour does land on the table of the CEO with a hope that he orders probe by an official who is not close to Yadav and Padma Alva.

  56. My final and fitting obituary to Maharaj K(C)arpet Razdan, an international Carpet merchant-cum-PTI’s Ex-CEO/EIC : Dear Mr Razdan, you have been undeservedly feted throughout this week for your outstanding contributions to the organization over past 51 years, but a huge majority of employees from editors to reporters and from senior people in administration to Grade 5 employees believe that you did not deserve these bouquets and should have received more brickbats for your arrogant behaviour and dictatorial rule foe better parts of two decades which fortunately end today with double farewell. Just reflect for a moment what all you are leaving behind apart from healthy finance. Let me tell you on behalf of hundreds of employees that you have left behind management and editorial in tatters with all top officials being on prolonged extension. You promoted all KPs of suspect abilities as Editors and made their seniors to write their copies for years before they became capable of writing stories that required heavy editing by desk. God knows what is going to happened to some KPs if not all under new dispensation. It is due to your deliberate mismanagement that PTI does not have a pool of good editors and reporters at present which is amply reflected in sharp decline of news output amd quality of reporting. Wish you could have thought and acted in larger interest of the organization, but you had only the interests of some KPs in mind. The state of Metros and bureaux is no better as the ageing workforce in reporting and other sections are not in a position to give their best due to protectionism, nepotism and ignorance of top brass led by you. You were the only CEO/EIC in media industry that delegated decision-making powers to rogue union leader MS Yadav whose list of posting, transfer, promotion etc used to get approved by you without any murmur. According to Yadav, all administrators like MSA, Padma Alva, VSC were not worth more than champaris (peon). You also must be aware of organized crime and corruption by Yadav namely Noida plot allotment featuring at least five corrupt PTI Officials and purchase of land by Federation and its subsequent sale to Yadav’s son took place right under your nose. PTI filed a story about Noida plot allotment irregularitiea in NRG file, but withdrew the story hours later. You did not have guts to take action against the culprits, Yadav and Padma Alva who shamelessly continues as CAO even under the new CEO. Why did not you take action against Yadav and co on the same ground that you had removed the then PTI Bhasha Editor VEd Pratap Vaidik? But you were never a man of conscience and integrity and it is not surprising given DNA of KPs. I don’t wish to throw much light on foreign assignments and postings which went to KPs as a matter of right or entitlement. London posting was meant for only those who can protect and promote your carpet business. Now coming to conclusion to my final post about you, the name of some dictators like Nicolae Ceausescu, Joseph Stalin, Slobodan Milosevic and Kim Il-Sung easily come to my mind to explain extent of brutalities committed by your rogue and corrupt regime on hapless employees one of which committed suicide in office premises in Hyderabad a decade ago. In my parting shot, I must tell you that hundreds of serving employees and thousands of retired ones will curse you all their life and must be praying that you and your family must suffer terribly at the hands of fate to even out atrocities and brutalities that you perpetrated on employees all these years. GOOD BYE AND GO TO HELL.
    Hemant Kumar: Very appropriate farewell to a scoundrel who is leaving a legacy of corruption which would need months to wipe out. His minions who are sucking PTI like leeches should be also kicked out as soon as possible as the first step in the mission cleaning drive

  57. पीटीआई कर्मचारियों में कहीं गम, कहीं ज्यादा खुशी की लहर

    पीटीआई के दीर्घकालिक कर्मचारी एमकेआर ने अपने पचास साल के एकात्मवाद से प्रेट्र को चला कर देश के सभी सोशिएल एवं प्रिंट मीडिया पर इसे बदनामी के शिखर पर ला दिया है. वो बेहिचक “फेरवेल पर फेरवेल” लेकर श्राद्ध के अंतिम दिन हम सभी को छोड़ कर जा रहा है. हिंदू शास्त्रों में श्राद्ध के दिनों में विदाई के मायने बहुत सुखद या दुखद होते हैं ! इसका अभिप्राय कोई कुछ भी निकाल सकता है. परंतु ये भविष्य के गर्भ में से इसका परिणाम सही समय पर निकल कर आयेगा कि एमकेआर (विक्रम) और उनके एमएस बेताल (पिश्चास) का क्या हश्र होगा ?

    पिछले दिनों कंफडरेश्न के लखनऊ जलसे में जहां एक राजनीतिक दल के प्रथम पंक्ति के कार्यकर्ता ही थे वहां कुछ प्रेट्र-ब्यूरो से बुलाये ग़ये कर्मचारी दबी जबान में घोर चिंता में डूबे थे कि नेता-एमएस तो पीटीआई से पिटकर कंफडरेश्न में अ‍केले अध्यक्ष बन गये मगर एमकेआर के श्राद्ध के अंतिम दिन जाने से उन ब्यूरो के कर्मचारियों का भविष्य अंधकार में आ गया है. वे डिपरेश्न में आ गये हैं. जिस तरह दिल्ली में वे आपस में तू-तू मैं-मैं जूतम-पैजार पर आ गये हैं वैसे ही ब्यूरों में इनके लोग सामान्य कर्मचारियों से कर रहे हैं. विशेषरूप से जयपुर, लखनऊ, पटना, भोपाल, इंदौर, देहरादून और कोलकता ब्यूरो में मातम पसरा है.

    एमकेआर और एमएस की जुगलबंदी से आबाद जयपुर ब्यूरो में तो भाषा के कबाड़ी-और-जुगाड़ु मैनेजर माथुर ने फेडरेश्न से हाथ खींच लिये हैं. एमएस को दी जा रही सारी आपदा-राहत राशि को अक्समात रोक दिया है. कनफडेरश्न में अपने को तटस्थ रख जुगाड़ू मैनेजर नये सीईओ से पैंगे बनाने की कोशिश में अपनी पीटीआई-दिल्ली में उनके अथक प्रयास से नियुक्त महिला कर्मचारी का सहारा ले रहा है. वैसे भी जयपुर ब्यूरो इन कार्यों के लिये फेमस है. जब से ये महाशय भाषा के अकेले संवाददाता बचे रह गये तब से इसने अजमेर, कोटा, भीलवाड़ा, बीकानेर, उदयपुर, अलवर, बाड़मेर में पुराने संवाददाताओं को जबरस्ती हटा कर अपनी पसंद के नये संवाददाता बना दिये हैं. इन सबसे हर माह में हफ्ता वसूली की गयी है. बीकानेर और उदयपुर के संवाददाता जो बिजनेस ही करते हैं, उन्हें पीटीआई में स्थाई नौकरी दिलाने के लिये उदयपुर में फैडरेशन में पार्टी और गिफ्ट देने के लिये भी बुलाया गया था और उन्हें अब तक चूसा जा रहा है.

    ये कायस्थ जनाब तो कई महिला पत्रकारों को अपने कक्ष में बैठा कर, पर्दा फैला कर या दरवाजे को ढुका कर उन्हें पीटीआई-भाषा में नौकरी दिलाने का झांसा देकर खूब मजे लूटे हैं और हाईवे होटलों में कास्टिंग काऊच भी करते देखे गये हैं. मैनेजर बनने के बाद तो इस शख्स ने एक पत्रकारिता विश्व विद्यालय (जो अब बंद हो गया है) के भूतपूर्व वीसी और छात्राओं को अपने क्लोजडोर कक्ष में ट्रेनिंग दिलाने के बहाने खूब सिटिंग की थीं. उस पर स्टाफ को ये ही कहते रहे की इससे प्रेट्र का उज्ज्वल भविष्य होगा. असल तो जानने की हिम्मत तो उन खास पीओन या एटेंडर की भी नहीं जो उन्हें क्लोजडोर में पानी, चाय, नाश्ता देकर बाहर कर दिये जाते थी. वे छोटे पद के कर्मचारी तो डर के मारे सत्य उगल नहीं सकते. कई गुलफाम-कली (टीवी सीरियल:भाबी जी घर पर हैं) ये जनाब लाते रहे है दफ्तर और निर्माणाधीन पीटीआई बिल्डिंग के तहखाने में. गर्भधारण और एबोर्श्न से जुड़ी हुई कई बातें का उल्लेख यहां नहीं किया जा सकता पर गुलाबी नगरी में प्रेट्र-भाषा के सभी कर्मचारी और मकान मालिक (पीटीआई किराये पर रहती है, पैनल रेंट अदा करके) के बंदे जानते हैं, अक्सर बुदबुदाते हैं.

    ब्यूरो का मतलब होता है 24×7 दफ्तर कम रेजिडेंस. किंतु इन रेजिडेंट ने मैनेजर की प्रथा को समाप्त कर सरकारी आवासों और सुविधाएं उठाने वाले हो गये और दफ्तर को चौबिस घंटे खुले रखने के लिये “एक्सट्रा नाईट ड्यूटी” के नाम से कर्मचारियों को सौंप कर उन्हें अतिरिक्त पेमेंट देते आ रहे हैं. भोपाल, इंदौर, और अन्य सेंटर्स पर रात पर ताले रहते हैं. ये सोचने का विषय है कि जयपुर आफिस जहां कोई मशीन रात में नहीं चलती वहां रात को मैनेजर क्या क्या करता है और करने देता है. इसीलिए दिन और रात्रीकालीन दफ्तर में कौन-कौन अवैध रूप से रहते हुए ऐयाशी करते हैं इसकी जानकारी एमएस ने कई बार दबाई है और एमकेआर की नाक के नीचे ये दारू-ऐयाशी-मस्ती दशकों से चली आ रही है.

    एमकेआर के दोनों पदों से हट जाने के बाद कुछ कर्मचारी जो ब्यूरो में पीटीआई के दामाद बन कर पिछले तीन दशकों से ऐश कर रहे हैं उन्हें भी चिंता सता रही है कि उन्हें ये स्वयंभू मैनेजर अब रहने देगा या नहीं. यूं ये कथित मैनेजर नेशनल होलिडे (15 अगस्त, 26 जनवरी आदि दिवसों) पर अपने खास कर्मचारी को एक्स्सट्रा ड्यूटी देकर बाहर भेज देता था और रात के अंधेरे मे कई बार कई मुंह ढकी महिलाओं के साथ आते दिखें हैं. इस दफ्तर में बिना किसी कार्य के बहुत चारपाईयां भी हैं. जिन पर कितने लोगों का सोने का हक है, ये कोई नहीं जानता.

    पीटीआई दिल्ली के अभूतपूर्व और जाहिल जीएम-एडमिन एमएसए और सीएओ महिला अधिकारी जब कभी भी जयपुर ब्यूरो आए तो सिर्फ अजमेर में चादर चढ़ाने, कोर्ट की पेशी पर, अपने रिश्तेदारों के काम से या राज्यपाल से मिलने. यूं तो एमकेआर भी आए पर बिना सीएम से मिले चले गये गत वर्ष. उन्हें किसी ने लिफ्ट नहीं दी. जब-जब ये उच्च कर्मचारी आए तब-तब इन ऐयाश कर्मचारियों को कुछ दिन का अवकाश दे दिया गया या अस्थाई विस्थापित कर दिया—आफिस के सामने जेडीए गार्डन में स्थित बैंक्व्ट रूम में जो अपने आप में फेमस है.

    महत्वपूर्ण तो ये भी है—एक बार तो कथित ऐयाशी पर इतना बवाल मचा की दिल्ली से एमएस को हस्तक्षेप कर अपने ही सभी कर्मचारिओं को डराना-धमकाना पड़ा कि वो इस ऐयाशी के मुद्दे पर गांधीजी के तीन बंदर बन कर आंख पर काला चश्मा, कान में रूई और मुंह सिल लें. और प्रभावित कर्मचारी को डांटा-डंपटा की वो सवैतनिक लंबी छुट्टी पर चला जाये.

    मैनेजर के नाम पर अपने कमरे में आनंद लूट रहे भाषा के ये रिपोर्टर कितना समय नई निर्माणाधीन बिल्डिंग में गुजारते हैं, कितना समय अपनी पाक्षिक पत्रिका : कायस्थ टूडे के लिये विज्ञापन और ग्राहक जुटाने में, और न्यूज सोर्स से उगाही में निकालते हैं ये एमएस भी नहीं जान पाये क्योंकि उनके लिये तो फेडरेश्न की एगिज्क्यूटिव मीटिंग कराने का जिम्मा और धन राशि जुटाने का जिम्मा तो इस अति-लफ्फाज और सदैव झूठ को सच बनाने वाले कायस्थ पर है. बंबई के भूतपूर्व जीएम से लेकर और अब के एमकेआर तक इस महाशय ने जो पूरी पीटीआई को गर्त में मिलाया है, उसका खामियाजा उठाया है उन चुप्प, इमानदार, मेहनती, सहनशील और पीड़ित कर्मचारियों ने जिनमें से कुछ ने बेमतलब का प्रताड़ना और ट्रांसफर भी झेला और झेल रहे हैं.

    एमकेआर के इस तरह जाते चले जाने से हर कर्मचारी को एक अफसोस है कि वो कभी भी आसानी से अपने सीईओ और ऐडिटर-इन-चीफ से दिल्ली जाकर भी नहीं मिल सका. वो बिना एमएस की अनुमति से विजिटिंग स्टाफ से नहीं मिलते थे. कर्मचारियों की समस्याओं को सुनने का दम और खंम एमकेआर में नहीं था. उनके दो कान थे जरूर पर वो एमएस और पाठक के पास थे. आंखें थीं पर उन पर घमंड और उच्च पद का मोतियाबिंद था. दिल था जो किसी को दिया हुआ था. वो दिल लेने वाली कौन है, दिल्ली में तो सब जानते ही हैं. इस जानदार सीईओ एण्ड एडिटर-इन-चीफ इस फेडेरेश्न की स्टैम्प रहा जो जीएम-एड्मिन और सीएओ लगाया करते थे—निरंकुश हो कर. अन्याय, अत्याचार, और बेदर्दी (चाहे जितने पर्यायवाची लगाओ) की लौ जलाये रखने वाले ये एमकेआर, एल्वा, एमएसए, एमएस और इनके ब्यूरो को सड़ा रहे बुत रूपी लूटेरे मैनजेरों ने जो किया है, उसको नया प्रशासन संभाल पायेगा. ये शक है. क्योंकि पीटीआई अब पीआईबी की तर्ज पर जा चुका है. इस प्रेट्र को प्रसार भारती को गोद ले लेना चाहिये. जैसे पीआईबी, आकाशवाणी, दूरदर्शन, फिल्ड पब्लिसिटी हैं. सुना है केंद्र सरकार इस विकल्प पर विचार कर रही है. वैसे भी प्रेट्र में बड़े अखबारों का विनिवेश और शेयर है. और केंद्र को डिसइंवेस्ट नहीं करना पड़ेगा अगर प्रेट्र सरकार के हाथों में चला जाये. यूं भी देश के नागरिक पीटीआई को फिजिकल ट्रेनिंग ईंस्टीट्यूट मानता है, पीओन ट्रस्ट ऑफ इंडिया या पीआईबी.

    अगर इन सभी के भष्ट्र के क्लोन कर्मचारी दुखी हो रहे हैं तो प्रेट्र के अन्य ईमानदार कर्मचारी भी हैं जो नये सूरज उगने की प्रतीक्षा में है. काफी खुशियां मनाने के मूड में हैं कि श्राद्ध में पितृ चले गये और देवी माता प्रकट होनी वाली हैं. तथा बुराई पर सत्य की विजय का पर्व भी आ रहा है जब इस बार संसद मार्ग पर रीयल रावण का वध होगा.

    ये लेख लंबा हो रहा है. प्रेट्र के अन्य केंद्रों पर आगे के डिस्पेच में लिखा जायेगा. तब तक ये ही कहना उचित होगा: एमकेआर आपने पीटीआई का जो इतिहास लिखा है उसे लोग Nazis’ का Draconian and Cruel कालखंड मानेंगे. तथा पीड़ित और शोषित हुए कर्मचारियों की सेवा को सदैव याद करेंगे. और कामना करेंगे की आप सभी को अब तो ईश्वर सदबुद्धी दे…. आप सिर उठा कर चलने लगें…एक दिन आप सभी सत्य को पहचान सकें…. और समय के साथ आप सभी से आंख भी मिला सकें. बाद में आप सभी को शांति दे. ओम शांति..ओम शांति..ओम शांति.

  58. gurudas:Posting a notice put up by English-speaking Senior Regional Engineer in thr grade of Journalist 1B for reading by you all. I saw traces of tear that must have rolled down from Yadav’s moist eyes while drafting the notice informing colleagues/comrades about a farewell lunch that the Federation of PTI Employees Union will host for now imminently departing Razdan on September 29. Imagine for a moment as how the rogue union leader would have accepted the fact with heavy heart that his ‘Pitashri’ (just short of biological father) is departing at a time he needed the towering EIC to stay for some more time to help him wriggle out of the mess that Yadav find himself in by being caught red handed in purchase of Federation property in the name of his son Master Amit Yadav as well as souvenir ghotala. If Razdan couldnhave stayed for some more time then he would have definitely rescued his trusted pet (Yadav) from being caught by long arms of law, but both have finally run out of luck this time. Let us not digress from the topic under discussion – Razdan’s farewell by Federation. We can understand Yadav, despite his lack of civility, had to pay his gratitude to the departing EIC for giving him free run to run the union in brutal manner for two decades during which thousands of employees suffered in worst possible manner. Razdan trusted Yadav so blindly that his list for posting, transfer, promotion and foreign assignments to journalists and non-journalists always used to get approved by management. I can go on and on narrating various aspects of unholy partnership between Razdan and Yadav during their heydays. They deserve to break breads together in the basement of the office. I know Yadav has purchased an Iphone-7 costing about Rs. 60,000 or so as a farewell gift for Razdan. What a pity….a union has lakhs of rupees in bank accounts and crores in fixed deposit is giving gift of petty amount to Yadav’s mascot aka Razdan. The outgoing EIC deserves much more than that given that he has made Yadav a ‘Raja’ out of ‘Runk. I also understand that there will be huge buckets put up in the basement as Razdan’s shenanigans will shed litres of tear at the final farewell lunch and the water discharge from wet eyes will be so heavy that it will flood Delhi if not dropped in the buckets. RIP Mr. Razdan alone for the time being…Yadav will follow you in the grave soon. Tomoŕrrow will be the day when Yadav may not squander an opportunity to be one of your pallbearers .
    Hemant Kumar: A DNA aging test was suggested by a former Engineer who came to know about the fudging of DOB by a trade union leader to ascertain the actual age and if found guilty fling a criminal case against the leader for falsifying the DOB by the management . But the actual record of the so called leader is with EPS dept as in 2011 they had sent pension papers to him . EPS send pension papers when a person attains 58 years .
    So it is obvious that the leader has tampered with his DOB papers .
    The changing of DOB is obvious to increase the age of retirement . And the great former CEO had his blessings for it otherwise the preretirement letter typed in the name of the leader was not delivered to him, why ?
    Is there any explanation for it with the former CEO and the so called leader.

    Neelkanth Paratkar: जिनको अपने बाप के मौत की तारीख नहीं पता वे २९ को श्राद्ध कर सकते है बडा अच्छा दिन है भाई अनाथों के लिए । एक तारीख से इनके बूरे दिन शुरू होना तय है।
    Hemant Kumar: Is this money given by the employees is being squandered as if it belongs to one’s own paternal property !

  59. First congratulations to Confederation of News Paper and News Agencies Organizations (CNNAEO) for success of meeting held at lucknow in which all of you honored our great leader MS Yadav who brought majithia wage board , As it was always mentioned in speeches of All of you and particularly of Pramod Goswami and Suresh Akhori.
    But as per information received eighty percent employees in pti and other news paper industry, where majithia wageboard implemented, reached stagnation stage due to fixation of last increment scale . It means that all of you intellectuals , who was members of majithia wage board ,fixed scale for only two to three years after implementation and there was no chance of further increment in near future , because the all of the employees would reach their stagnation .
    This is very interesting news reagarding our GREAT and corrupt leader M S yadav , who is elected as President post of confederation of News Paper and News Agencies Organization(CNNAEO) at lucknow meeting on 23rd 2016 , is involved in highly corruption charges due to misuse of funds of Federation of PTI Employees Unions and this matter may be registered as a case shortly based on the evidentiary document , Which are published on social media sites.
    The entire pti staff gave most respect to this leader and what this GREAT LEADER did is mentioned below :
    1. Hundreds of staffs of PTI are tortured by this leader with the help of MK Razdan and Padma Alva. By using transfers and holding the promotions as draconian tolls through several charges . and these sinful acts resulted that our several journalists left pti who form the strongest reputation of this organization.
    2. As a union leader he was promoted to group 1B. Now this is the matter of surprise that how a person who was appointed as non-journalist became journalist , without any test and qualification whereas if you consider rest non-journalist employees they are not being provided that privileges . Don’t you think that this was influenced by malafide intentions ?
    3. If any employee requested for his transfer or promotion the famous quote of this great leader was “ ARE YAAR RAZDAN TAIYAAR NAHIN HOGA “ , But for himself he always made Razdan to be agreed.
    4. This great leader recently mentioned in his last AGM report that last installment of arrears will be paid by beginning of April 2016 whereas he already setteled it in meeting with Mr MKR that arear could be paid by December end. This fact surfaced out during staff council meeting with newly appointed CEO on 29th August 2016. This is even more torturing information that even other council members were not aware of these conditions.
    5. There is very serious nature of corruption and , prima facie , that allegation seems to be true ,that the Federation property worth rupees more than one crore was transferred to the name of his son Amit yadav without any proper discussion in any federation meeting and where the received money ,through sale , was used , and was also not shown in any balance sheet. AND WHO AUTHORISED HIM FOR THIS ACT ?
    4. AS per latest information that Souvenir Committee Account , opened in every metro and capital centres through the consent of this GREAT LEADER where federation meetings were organized , raised crores of rupees . This “ fund “ was collected under supervision of MS Yadav & co for last 20 years . But this is still a blur picture that what was the real expenditure occurred for federation meetings . And no financial statements have been issued regarding this , till now , by organizers .
    Also all of you after knowing this facts may be surprise/shocked that during staff council meeting of PTI , management gives handsome amount to staff council members for their expenditure but this amount was never distributed equally among all staff council members , thanks to this GREAT LEADER . This news came out after differences on the several matters related between MSY and CO. And this facts was hidden , till date , from federation members also .
    5. It is showing that you should not trust this person who did not take his colleagues in confidence , who were there with him since last 20years , in several matters and cheated him . You can never trust what he can do in near future and you should not too because this man is too good to manipulate the situations which ultimately perpetuates the bad conditions of employees .

    Now there is no differences in current political scenario and this current confederation’s administrative structure , where a culprit is elected again and again until he is not punished by the land of the law .
    What is the different between corrupt political leaders and these entire journalists union leaders who are self called intellectuals in the media organizations and participate in this AGM and elected this GREAT LEADER .

    There is a famous saying that “ You can defeat the lion of forest easily than the rats of your own house which plagued the whole family “ .
    Now it is all upto us that what we want to do now .. Either kill the rats or get killed by the plague .

  60. Following contentes copy from FB
    Kundan Kumar: Dear all, the souvenir racket by the Federation of PTI Employees Union has assumed gigantic proposition akin to 2G, Commonwealth Games and Coalgate scams. Im my earlier post, I has posted bank account statement of souvenir committees at Mumbai and account number of such a committee at Lucknow through in which advertisement funds worth crores of rupees were collected, but were not accounted for or audited by anyone. Now some more documents of souvenir scam has surfaced from Mumbai and Jaipur. As per information, Mumbai unit of Federation runs two souvenir accounts, one in UCO Bank and another in a Co-operative Bank at Vasai. It has been confirmed that Rs. 16 lakh is deposited in the said account, John Gonsalves, who operates souvenir accounts said to be more than two, has not paid commission to individuals like Prajakta Karthik, Sunil Shivdasani and BGH Gautam among others who had brought advertisement money for Federation meetings held in Western Region. The criminal-corrupt union leaders have reportedly siphoned off money for personal use by misusing brand name of PTI. Expect some more details in days to come about souvenir racket in Mumbai. Now some more masala from Jaipur where the Federation of PTI Employees Union has opened a bamk account with PAN card no. AAAAF0565G issued on 21/9/1998. Interestingly, Jaipur Bureau Chief who valour is well known to colleagues throughout the country has hosted three successive Federation Executive meetings at Jaipur with venues being a hotel near Ridhi Sidhi on May 4-5, 2013; Udaipur for second meeting in 2015 and RTDC hotel at Jaipur in June 2016. The second meeting was held with funds given by a company called Zink. The contractors associated with the then ruling party and its chief minister had funded the first meeting. While the employees of local unit were kept out of the executive meetings, there is report of money laundering taking place involving Jaipur bureau chief and ‘rogue’ MS Yadav who has known business and personal interests there and that is why he has got his most trusted man deputed as manager. I don’t wish to comment on his professional skills, but he has definitely mastered the art of hosting union meetings with regularity that has been matched by only Patna and Lucknow. As it is, Jaipur bureau chief has been handsomely rewarded by Yadav with fat allowances and employment to his wars as a journalist at Delhi. Even as we are committed to expose organised corruption by Yadav and co, I request you all to use your sources in CBI and Income Tax to bring these culprits to book. Hope the board and management arw also listening to our fervant appeal.

    Hemant Kumar: What a shame . So many skeletons hidden in the cupboard is tumbling out to light. The Jaipur Manager who does not know a word of English is at the helm of affairs of an English news agency . Isn’t it very strange and baffling that a person completely zero in reading, writing and speaking in the language for the agency is known to be heading it?
    In 2010 , through deep rooted conspiracy, he was blessed by the former CEO & EIC, M K Razdan, Former General Manager Mohd. Shakeel and M S Yadav. to be become the manager instead he being punished for flashing a wrong news in Bhasa misquoting the then Chief Minister of Rajasthan Mr. Ashok Gehlot that he had summoned the charge sheet relating to the alleged involvement of R S S Leader Indresh Kumar in the Ajmer Bomb incident.Blast And The Executive Editor V S Chandrashekhar without verifying the news translated the Bhasa news and flashed it in PTI . Chandrashekhar ( VSC ) who claims to be a journalist didn’t have the minimum IQ that a Chief Minister cannot summon a charge sheet already submitted in the court released the news. Gehlot next day issued a denial when he learnt that PTI has issued news misquoting him. PTI Jaipur spoke to Gehlotwhile he was going to Dausa and carried the denial . But, regretfully the great Executive Editor did not release the denial separately to cover up his blunder and buried it another exclusive story related to Inderesh Kumar. But the person who was no way involved in flashing the wrong news and rather gave a correct version of Gehlot after personally speaking to him was moved out of Jaipur and the culprit was rewarded. Like and her Nagari Chaupat Raja tale.
    It is still a mystery why the guilty was rewarded . Earlier the same person Anil Mathur had misquoted Late Benazir Bhutto of Pakistan when she had held a press conference in Jaipur on her way to Delhi after visiting Dargah.Ms. Bhuoto had denied that story in which she was quoted of meeting Nawaz Sharif in Dubai.
    But the see the irony instead of he being shunted out or at least reprimanded was awarded the post of Manager by MKR.
    Not only that after becoming manager the agency office was turned into a camp office of a particular CM with his press advisor, a correspondent of a national newspaper and Mathur daily holding meetings and press releases of the CM drafted in and sent through PTI fax.
    Mathur was also rewarded with his daughter who is poor graphics
    dessginer recruited and confirmed despite the graphics dept. in charge giving an adverse report about her performance. Any new recruit is appointed in the contract but she was confirmed as a regular employee. Isn’t this ver strange ?
    Lately, it has been alleged that the local contractor who is engaged in supervising the PTI building project has gifted a luxurious sedan to Mathur.
    All these should be probed and all records should be scrutinized to find the truth.
    If an award named ” BRASTCHAR RATNA ” ” is constituted , friends nominate your choice who should be the first scoundrel to be awarded this coveted prize!

    Guru Das: As my choice and we hope people also choice First bhrastachar Ratna award nominee is MKR and second nominee is MSY. Because all irregularities and wilfulness devoloped in PTI like reputed organization with the help of MKR and MSY who was sit on their chair near about 13 years and three years after his retirement. which are created historical example in the industry.

  61. An interesting account of sharp decline of PTI Lucknow Bureaux from a newsy centre to one as epicentre of organized crime and corruption over past two decades under absolute role of corrupt Federation of PTI Employees Union General Secretary MS Yadav. Read it on a day Yadav is holding Confederation meeting at Lucknow in which attendance of local emplouee

    पीटीआई फेडरेशन का उदय और परास्त स्थल: नवाबों का शहर लखनऊ
    दिल्ली पीटीआई यूनियन के उदय और अस्त की कथा भी अजब है, पर गजब है. लखनऊ में तब 1989-91 में भी मुलायम सरकार थी, और आज भी 2016 में मुलायम के बेटे की सरकार है.
    तब 1989-91 के मध्य अपने चंद चमचों के साथ “एमएस” लखनऊ पहुंचे थे. एक ही उद्देश्य था— एमकेआर को जीएम बनाने और बंबई पीटीआई को तोड़-ताड़ कर दिल्ली बसाने का. ढोंगी एमएस और राडिया मामले में बाहर हुए कॉमर्स एडिटर (हिंदुस्तान समाचार के बंद होने के बाद पीटीआई में विस्थापित हुए थे) लखनऊ पीटीआई पहुंचे थे. लखनऊ में तब के ब्यरो चीफ सदाबहार हरपाल नायर ने इन्हें तंग सीढ़ियों मे चढ़ने नहीं दिया था.
    बेचारे एमएस और एच.पाठक ने लखनऊ प्रेस क्लब में पीटीआई-भाषा, हिंदुस्तान समाचार से विस्थापित दो तीन पत्रकारों से यूनियन बनाने की पर जोर दिया था. उनमें से एक मुस्लिम पत्रकार को नेताओं ने पहले उसे दिल्ली में बंधक बना कर रखा और बाद में लखनऊ का मैनेजर बना दिया. उसके बादे भाषा के दूसरे चतुर और यूनियन के अवैध वसूली करने वाले गोस्वामीजी को सत्ता सौंप दी. और लगातार एक्सटेंस्न पर एक्स्टेंश्न दिये. हिंदी पर अंग्रेजी और अग्रेजी से हिंदी के सूरदास गोस्वामीजी ने एमएस की पुत्रवधु को नोएडा के पास नौकरी दिलाई थी तो मैनेजर बनाये रखना एमकेआर की भी मजबूरी थी. भूतकाल में गोस्वामीजी कभी हरपाल नायर को स्कूटर पर टांग कर प्रेस क्लब ले जाते थे, उसके दोनों बेटों को टॉफियॉं और उनकी मैडम की गुलामी किया करते थे. स्वर्गीय नायर की कड़ी नाराजगी के बावजूद एमएस और पाठक ने गोस्वामी और मुस्लिम पत्रकार को यूनियन संभला दी. फिर शुरू हुआ लखनऊ ब्यूरो के आधीन आने वाले प्रमुख शहरो के पत्रकार और गैर-पत्रकार के साथ अन्याय और असमानता का दौर जो अब तक चालू है. वाराणसी, कानपुर, इलाहबाद केंद्रों और लखनऊ ब्यूरों में जमकर राजनीति हुई और घपलों और चोरियों की सियासत बहुत ही नफासत और नजाकत से चलती रही.
    लगभग तीन दशकों में लखनऊ पीटीआई भाषा का जो कीमा बनाया गया कि देश के सबसे नॉर्थ ब्यूरो एक अंग्रेजी के ब्यूरो चीफ के लिये तरसता रहा क्योंकि मुलायम सरकार के करीबी दो भाषा पत्रकारों को पालने पौसने में दिल्ली के एमएस और एमकेआर अपनी चंबल-बिहड़ सुंदरी सीएओ और भूपू. जीएम एड्मिन जाहिल एमएसए के साथ पीटीआई के काबिल पत्रकार और गैर पत्रकारों को कुचलने में लगे रहे.
    पीटीआई फैडरेश्न के चंद नेता एमएस, जोन, और इनकी मैनेजमेंट-गैंग बुरी तरह से बदनाम हो गयी हैं, और इनका प्रेसिडेंट जोन गालियां खाकर मुंबई पीटीआई से बैंक बैलेंस और अपनी कंपनी को लेकर भगौड़ा हो गया है…. स्टाफ कोंसिल से पहले अपनी पटना मीटिंग में पटखनी खा आने के बाद आज ये नपुंसक नेताग़ण लखनऊ में बेबुनियादी “कन्फ्डेरेशन” करने जा रहे हैं ताकि पीटीआई के नये सीईओ पर दवाब बना सकें. बत्तीसी बदला चुके नेता ने व्ह्पि जारी कर हर ब्यूरो से एक दो गैर पत्रकारों को दिल्ली यूनियन से किराया देने का वादा कर लखनऊ बुलाया है. मुलायम से पारिवारिक रिश्तेदारी रखने वाले नेता सपा के जोर से कन्फ्डरेशन की मीटिंग के लिये सारी ताकत और पैसा झोंक रहे हैं. काश एमकेआर होते और कर्मचारियों को अधिकृत लीव सेंक्श्न कर दिये होते. अवध की शान में खुद को गर्त करने का ये नजारा गजब भी है और अजब भी है. इस बार भी गोस्वामीजी और ये बदहाल नेता पीटीआई और कनफडरेश्न को माध्यम बना कर नीचे रसातल में ही जायेंगे. लखनऊ के क्रोकोडाईल इन्हें निगलने के लिये तैयार बैठे हैं.
    पीटीआई फेडरेश्न जो अब कन्फडरेश्न के आंचल में छिप कर जीने की दुआ मांग रहा है— उस पर बड़ा ईमाम बाड़ा और छोटा ईमाम बाड़ा कोई नहीं सुनने वाला. बड़े आबरू होकर यूं निकले की, लखनवी कुर्ते में भी अपने पाप और कूकर्मों को नहीं छिपा सके. ><

  62. Here is PTI Souvenir Committee account number at Lucknow. Heard that crores of rupees have been transacted from this account with sizeable chunk going into stained pockets of MS Yadav, the all powerful patriarch of the corrupt union leadership at present. Some more account details are on way which I will post on FB soon. Learnt from colleagues from Western Zone that Yadav and Jehadi John had fought with each other literally on dispute over sharing the huge advertisement money raised for annual AGM at Goa earlier this year. Yadav reneged on his earlier promise to share booty with John Gosnsalves consequent to which the 64 year-old Gonsalves resigned from the post of Federation of PTI Employees Union President sometimes back. Johnny Gaddar, a born fraud, in a deft move submitted resignation letter to Yadav. While the game of oneupmanship in on between Yadav and Gonsalves, here is an interesting piece of news that the Federation’s Eastern Region General Secretary and a member of Staff Council Swapan Acharya has swindled union fund meant for distribution to state units. Yadav had asked him recently at executive meeting at Patna to release state units’ share pending since 2011, but Acharya has refused to do so. There are murmurs of dissent against Yadav and Acharya at a ‘loyal’ centre which is reputed to host union meetings at the drop of a hat. Jai Hind.

    Guru Das If souvenirs account not audited since long is very serious nature of crime as the accounts run as hawala because not a single accounts showing in any audit report in federation balances sheet also please note that all accounts opened after authorisation letter from federation general secretary so it is clear that this hawala racket completely run under the supervision of msy and co. now need final touch as lodged FI r without delays .

    Hemant Kumar Yes, the truth should be public and al guilty should be punished including the former CEO who encouraged such malpractices by supporting corrupt persons and remained silent knowing every activities well . He only made these handful of persons to indulge in corruption because all staff who could have voiced against such malpractices were silenced with threaten of transfers , harassments and withdrawal of their rightful perquisites while undeserving like Persons were made managers and RMs. Because they were treasury houses of these scoundrels . Can a union leader afford to implant teeth paying exorbitant fee of Rs 7 Lakh without borrowing ? Is n’t baffling to all of us . Wherefrom he got the money to get implanted all 32 teeth without borrowing .could he account off such expenses ?
    Me mployers should no more remain silent the brute and root of all evils CEO is no more in authority to harass you all or dangle the sword of transfer to threaten you all . So you all should revolt against such corrupt persons who have been because of your silence exploiting every moment to their advantage fooling you all. Come out without fear to throw out such corrupt persons who are blot in the name of trade union leaders.

  63. Friends, I want to write about some people who are working behind the screen for people like Yadav, Razdan and Padma Alva. Some of them I have already mentioned i.e the “NAGIN”. There is one ” Chitragupt“, most of you may not know him because this “Chitragupt” writs the fate of only Amit Yadav, and not others, he is our Administrative Officer Prabhat Kumar. His name was forwarded by Mohammad Shahabuddin Yadav ( M S Yadav) of PTI and he was appointed by Lalu Prasad ( M K Razdan) as Administrative Officer, i.e when Amit Yadav, had just joined College ( some private College ). His duty was to read all his Text Books, do all the project and home work of Amit Yadav the son of M S Yadav. He was even given a typist, to type all project works. He completed his graduation, he did his MBA in H R and I was told that he even did his LLB from Jaipur, where the local Manager then, helped him to get a seat in a private College. It seems he did all these courses not on his own, but every examination was written not by himself, but by our Mr. Administrative Officer. Mr. Administrative Officer did no Official work, he only worked for Amit Yadav, and took thousands of rupees salary from PTI. The Management was fully aware of this. If an Employee submitted a bill with one rupee more, it would be cut.
    Looking at all his qualifications, one Ramkishan Yadav, a party woker of Samajwadi Party,(only a chamcha, as Samajwadi Party in UP is of all Yadavs and Muslims) from Agra, got his daughter’s marriage fixed with Amit Yadav. Ramkishan Yadav (M S Yadav, went around telling people that he was Mulayam’s brother. M S Yadav is the biggest liar, whom I know from 1987) died fifteen days before the marriage. We Hindus don’t celebarate any functions if such things happen but M S Yadav, went ahead and got his son married. M S Yadav took a Honda City, 10 lakhs in cash and Jewelry as dowry. He did not want the marriage to be postponed, as he was scared that if the marriage was cancelled, he might lose the dowry. He invited people from all over the country (people from all centers). People came from all over the India, and gave costly gifts and showed their presence and respects to him. Today Amit Yadav is a father.
    Because of his Father-in –law’s links in Samajwadi Party and the party had some links with Anil Ambani, Amit Yadav was appointed as H R Manager. Within two months the company came to know the inefficiency of Mr.Yadav the Junior, he was sacked as he had none of the qualifications. Now I am told that he is working as a Clerk somewhere. If M S Yadav wished he could have brought him in PTI, but even he knows his son’s inefficiency.
    I am surprised, may be you also, as to why M K Razdan or M S Yadav, did not demand the PTI Board to appoint their sons to be made CEO of PTI. Ha ha ha! Because they also know the caliber of their children. Why Razdan wants Priyank Tikoo only ? there was no other lady?
    Whenever a VIP or a VVIP, is caught in a scandal, his personal staff like his Driver, his Peon and his Personal Secretary or anybody who was close to him has to be questioned. Like in the case of M K Razdan, as I have mentioned earlier about his Driver Kishor who was given Regional Engineer Grade, why? The reason is better known to Razdan. Some of the seniors in PTI might remember one Bala who used to work in James Canteen and supply us (the staff) with Tea, Sambar Vada. Etc. He never used to return exact change and used to say that he has no change and pay it later or adjust it and never did so. He kept the change for himself. While supplying looking at his smartness and shrewdness, Mr. Razdan took him as his Peon/attender. Within a period of two years he was promoted as Clerk, Why and How? Today Bala of James Canteen has become Mr.R.Balasubramanian, Empl.No.1806. When Mr. R.Balasubramanian, walks into the office, any stranger feels that he is the Company Secretary or Genaral Manager looking at his looks, dress and the shoes he wears, which I cont afford to. There are some peons/Attenders who are seniors to him in service salute him. While James’ son poor fellow just prepares tea for Razdan. Mr. R.Balasubramnian, is the only person who has all the information about all matters, even in the Board Meetings he is the only person who can walk in and out even when the serious meetings are on. He is the only one who knows even Razdan’s personal matters. Now you might understand why he was promoted. He is the one who knows the movement of all papers. A very shrewd person, he thinks too high of himself.
    We used have one BBC earlier, now he has been made the Regional Manager South by Mr. M S Yadav, as he was Yadav’s informer. He is very well known to spread any news and is a good spy also, though not a good Journalist, but known Chamcha of Yadav. He is none other than Mr. T V Sriram. That way Yadav has made all his GOONS as Managers of centers like Bhopal, Indore, Lucknow, Jaipur, Kolkata how can we forget Delhi, Padma Alva. Today let me tell a secret about Padma. She was Padma Rao, who married a Alva of Karnataka (Margrat Alva, the Ex. Governor of Rajastan’s relative) and became Padma Alva. Hers is a Psychic case. As she is not in good terms at home, she hates all South Indians. She hated James who was running canteen in PTI, for over two decads, because he was a South Indian and used to prepare South Indian food. She likes North Indian that too Non-Veg. She doesn’t like any South Indian, she likes North Indian people like Yadav from Haryana, who are liars, cheaters etc. This is a warning to our new CEO, who, I am told is from South. Delhi centre has very less South Indian staff. As I told you she doesn’t like South Indian food, she gets Kaju Burfi, Namkeens with Kaju, Kishmish and Badam from Nathu’s the most Expensive shop in Delhi, Kilos and Kilos, at the cost of PTI, which is shared by herself, Yadav and Tikoo while discussing politics in PTI and how to play with the lives of its employees.
    There is one Sr. Regional Manager, Mr. H S Bawa,( 64 year old) he is worse than M S Yadav, he takes two minutes to write his name, this is his qualification, draws thousands of rupees salary from PTI please see his post. He doesn’t know how to write his designation. He gets a call on his mobile as soon as Razdan starts from home. He has to come out of the PTI Building and see that there is peace around. He waits for his boss to arrive and open the door of the car, ( this precaution is taken as Razdan was once beaten up by a staffer at the gate this is information for people out of Delhi. A Chappal was thrown at him in the Court.) what a shame for the organization, being just a BSc. 3rd class ( while companies have MBAs etc. as their CEOs) and draws salary more than the President and Prime Minister of India.
    Well some of you might think as to why I am writing about all these people, because they are also responsible for today’s condition of PTI. These people who are officially appointed by PTI and doing nothing to the organization which has given them a job, but doing personal works of some, drawing heavy salaries from PTI. These are the people working behind the screen. The previous Managments did not need a Legal Officer, or a H R Manager because their work was fare, but today’s Management headed by Corrupted Lalu Prasad Razdan, Union leader like Mohammad Shahabuddin Yadav, need them to cover up the frauds they do. They all should be kicked out immediately.
    Sometimes back a news paper carried a story that Mr.Omar Abdullha, the formar Chief Minister of Kashmir has gone to court. He had asked for a divorce from Payal Abdullah, his estranged first wife. Making charges of cruelty against her, Well you people might think why am a writing about Omar Abdullha, think what will happen to poor Ms. Nidhi Razdan, who left NDTV,(where she had created troubles) with a hope to marry Omar and now is in a Live-in-Relationship with him. That way Ms. Bharkha Dutt is very lucky, today her Husband is a PDP MLA, and a Minister in today’s Jammu and Kahmir Govt. Razdan a Kashmiri Pandit is a Congressy and is hated by all Kashmiri Pandits, as he is anti-Kashmiri Pandits. Kahmiri Pandits, all over the country call him a “ Gaddar”. I am calling Razdan as Lalu Prasad, I am sorry. Lalu Prasad is better qualified then this fellow. May be he is running after Congress, will Sonia protect herself or protect this rouge. Poor PAPPU what can he do? People of his own party are laughing at him.
    Some gentlemen reading this may say as to why am I attacking their families, but dear Sir, its because of the trouble they have created for me, my family and few hundreds of families too of PTI Employees. The harassment I and my family had to suffer just because of them. I was demoted from Engineer to Sr. Technician by Shakeel Ahmed the Bihari Chamcha of both Razdan and Yadav. I have seen this Bihari going around begging for our votes for the post of Council Member during Pankaj Sarkar’s time. A gutless Bihari, did not allow me to meet him, he knows he will get from me. As I have written earler Yadav is a 10th fail, who has not touched any tools from 1987, today he is Sr. Regional Engineer, but I being a Qualified Engineer is demoted by the Biihari Chamcha for no fault of mine. I am without salary from May 2012, because of this Bihari. I have been treated like Ashok Khemkar in PTI. I have suffered so much because of their brutality. I was transferred every other day, because I was working for the organization and I did not encourage or tolerate cheating the organization which is giving you bread and butter, misuse of power etc. Had I supported or been with them, I also would have got a plot for myself. Goondas like Harshwardan Prakash who is not a Journalist, but a Gooda from Barwani in M P, was recruited only to finish me because Yadav knows none other than I would challenge his post and it was I who worked for him as he begged me to help him, as I as more popular than him, and made him the G S of Federation and he is scared that I should not come to Delhi and I am a threat to him. Harshwardan the Goon, called me to the office he and four other staffers beat me with Iron rods, and on the other hand filed a FIR, against me because the instruction came from Delhi by both PTI management and the Unoin pimps of the PTI Mangment. I will not leave them, I will see that Harshwardan and four other friends all the five and those people who were behind this will be put behind bars. Sometimes I feel some “ Shehansha” like the Big B of Bollywood, should come and hang these four or five people in public. Razdan,the “MOTI” the “NAGIN” Yadav and the “ Chamcha” of Chamchas the H R Managr. The H R Manager thinks he is too young and goes behind any lady singing “ Tu sola bars ki, main satra baras ka “ but the girls call him UNCLE, a shameless Mama Shakuni of PTI.
    Our Sr. Manger H R( Shakuni mama), who has no qualification of H R, and only knows how to butter the CEO, the CAO, the Neta and his Camchas like Ajay Tyagi, another Razdan who has not worked as a Journalist, Rajbir Singh who is not all found in Technical Department which he belongs to, Sunil Sehgal another Journalist Grade, who doesn’t know how to write one sentence in English, and is life time President of PTI Employee’s Theft and Credit Society which is used to keep the monopoly of the union. Yadav uses him to do frauds, Nagender Rawat a PA to Chief Engineer, who dosn’t know how to write a sentence and he used to come to me for help and Sunil Goud as he is Yadav’s driver and has never worked earlier. Jai Kishan used to be his driver a Jat from Haryana, who did not know to write his name in English, but he was given Reg. Engineers grade, but he died sometime back. Mr H R Manager before joining PTI, worked for two companies previously had to be closed down because of him. He is another Amit Yadav, who must have bought some degree certificate from Bihar, if at all he has it. He is just a master in Chamchagiry.
    It’s shame to the profession of Journalism by people like Razdan and Padma the MOTI, as journalists. I hereby request journalists brethren all over the country or at least people in Delhi, should organize a protest in front of PTI or Press Club of India, circulate these messages sent by your own friends, as to how they are suffering.
    Today I am writing something , after reading this you will call both Razdan and M S Yadav as criminals. A very intelligent Engineer, Mr. Kumar, retired from Indian Air Force self immolated inside the PTI Office in the presence of other staff in Hydarabad in front of the Manager’s room. He had sent notes to Then G M ,Razdan, Chief Minister of A P and to the Commissioner of Police, in which he had blamed Razdan and M S Yadav are responsible for this extreme step. Mr. H S R and the Chanakya rushed to Hyderabad. They were there for fifteen days, and sorted it out. After which Mr. H S R got extention and got posted to London, where his son was.
    Later one Bipin Patak, a Journalist was posted from Bhopal to New Delhi Office. Padma the MOTI, did not take him on duty, saying he has to obtain permission from M S Yadav, only then he will be taken on duty. As it is he was not keeping well. Every day he used come and sit in the reception waiting appointment from Yadav. Poor fellow did not have any relative or a friend in Delhi, I have seen him sleeping in 620 DTC bus stop. Later his wife also came, they both used to wait for the great Yadav to meet. It was more than three months, but could not get appointment from Yadav and MOTI did not take him on duty. One day while sitting there in the reception, he had a Heart Attack. His wife with the help of some outsiders (as PTI staff were banned from helping them) took him to R M L Hospital, where he was declared brought dead. His wife filed complaint of Murder against Yadav, which was later hushed up. Criminal cases were there against both Razdan and Yadav, but due to lack of witness ( witness mouth were shut) the cases were closed.
    Mr. Gurudas, you have written wonderfully. You have really done a laborious job and collected a lot of information. While regarding the plot in NOIDA, I too knew little, as this was before the split they were murmuring behind me. As I have written earlier I was not for the break in the Union, which the corrupt people did not like because I did not allow them to do fraudulent things, they transferred me out of Delhi to Indore, where there was a chamcha of John Gonsalves, S K Apte who joind PTI Indore in 1977 and retired without any transfer, so he was the DADA there. He was known for doing chamchagiry of anybody who came to power in Federation and that is how he was there for so many years. As you have rightly said an unbiased probe should be conducted by the new Management and an FIR should be filed not only against Yadav and Co, but also against Razdan, Moti and Co. as they had a hand in this, directly or indirectly. I herby extend my full support to you, as it is I have barrowed few lakhs of rupees till today to run my family, as I am without salary from May 2012, a little more is okay. For that matter anybody taking all these people to court I support them, I hope there many who would support this, as they also have suffered in their hands and wish you best luck in this regard.
    A note to our new Management. Sir, by now you must have understood the ratio between Journalists and Non-Journalists in PTI today, It is 1:4 or 5, respectively, out of which may be some of the Journalists have dared to write against the dictatorship of Razdan and Fraudulent things done by Yadav & Co, but Sir I would like to draw your kind attention, that may be I am the only Non-Journalist who dared to write about the atrocities of the Razdan’s regime, and rest of all Non-Journalists are shouting their mouths and sitting quite all over the country, because even today they are terrorize by M S Yadav and Padma Alva. I for one think there are so many who are suffering even today, but they are scared to say because of these two Demons. Their freedom of speech has been taken away by these dictators. Sir, it is high time that we in PTI expect a good governance. Sir please spare us from these “ RAKSHAS”, now that one has gone. Hope we can breathe freely. Please clean the Rotten things like H R Manager, H S Bawa, the Legal Officer and the Adminisrative Officer with Dettol, so that no germs are left behind. Sir we have come here to work, take work from us, we are not slaves, please don’t tourcher us. Hope we will get Justice at least now. Thank you Sir. Regards B R Bhaskar.

  64. Now that the news is finally out that the Ex-CEO and serving EIC Maharaj Kishan Razdan is calling it quit to the news agency he was part of 50 years and more and ruled it in brutal and authoritarian manner for 21 years, here is my obituary to the controversial boss with some reflection on his progress or call it slide from affable General Manager to larger than life persona as CEO-cum-EIC. Mr. Razdan was an easy going man in 1990s and accessible to all employees, journalist and non-journalist, and knew people by his name. As soon as he overthrew his fellow GM Mr. Kundapur in 1997, his monstrous ambition received an uncontrollable boost to kick start his two-decade long dictatorship. Egged on by his pets – Md. Shakeel Ahmed, a butcher from Bihar; V S Chandrasekar, a white collared Veerappan in his own right given his abusive and dismissive conduct towards subordinates, and Priyanka Tinkoo, a pocket-size stormy petrel, Razdan ruled with iron fist.
    As the new millennium dawned, a group of young unionists challenged established leaders like MS Yadav in which Razdan played a key role in turning the tide in favour Yadav. In early years of new millennium, his partnership with Yadav grew strong and its imprint could be seen in transfer, posting and promotion of employees. Razdan cleverly ceded bureaux and metro to Yadav’s men and in the bargain he was allowed to promote three Kashmiri Pandits (KPs) in key editorial positions in Delhi and a couple of others got foreign posting.
    The capabilities of all KPs were always suspect, a fact that even those in the habit of licking Razdan’s boot know and admit in private. In administration, Padma Alva grew as ever thirsty vampire under Razdan’s patronage and Yadav went on to become second most powerful man behind the retiring EIC.
    Social media has taken care to expose very misdeeds under Razdan era and no point in wasting time and energy. Hopefully the law of the land will take care of their corruption. Now that you have two weeks remaining in service, let me dissect meaning of your full name.
    1. You have been well and truly a Maharaj with the grandeur you lived your life.
    2. You are not Kishan or Krishan as you backed inefficient and corrupt people during better part of his service which in my opinion is a complete opposite to Lord Krishna’s teaching about supremacy of karma on way to propounding our holy scripture – Gita.
    3. There are two parts of your surname – Raz and dan. You ruled with absolute ruthlessness if I understand positive side of Razc (j), but at the same time you will be taking away too many secrets to your grave going by the meaning of Raz. Da(a)n you did to your pets both at home and office. At the same time thousands of employees have suffered because of your brutalities, directly or indirectly, and these employees and their families will curse you even after you are gone from this world.
    Lastly, your imminent departure at the end of this month is a matter of celebration, but for those who have suffered irreparably and not by those who perhaps needed your presence foe another quarter century.
    Good bye, Mr. Razdan. You are definitely not going to heavens for committing more bad things than good one. Those who heap praise on you for keeping PTI’ s finances in healthy shape like forex reserve of a country should know that leadership has human and spiritual aspects too.

  65. Another tribute to retiring EIC MK Razdan
    PTI Editor-Chief M.K. Razdan’s Farewell Party
    In the Basement!
    New Delhi, September 15: India’s top news agency PTI is throwing a farewell lunch party for its Editor-in-Chief M. K. Razdan for his over four decades of service to the wire agency.
    Razdan will step out of the Parliament Street building finally after ruling the media organisation with an “iron hand” in his position as the Editor-in-Chief, and preventing many professionals from succeeding him.
    The farewell party will be in the PTI building’s basement on September 17.
    PTI’s new CEO Venki Venkatesh is also throwing a “personal party” on September 26. But this will be in a five-star Hotel.
    The CEO has invited all the Chief of Bureaus. He has asked them to invite top Ministers and bureaucrats for this party.
    To please the new power centre, the COBs are trying to get top VIPs to parade them before the CEO as their “sources.”
    But reliable government sources said that the Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, the Finance Minister, Mr. Arun Jaitley, besides many others have declined the dinner invitation, mainly because of Razdan’s campaign against Narendra Modi, when he was Gujarat Chief Minister.
    Meanwhile, according to highly placed insiders, the CEO has raised objections and refused to clear the bills concerning the renovation work, including paintings, that was done in setting up the cabin for the Editor, Ms. Priyanka Tikoo.
    She was appointed Editor and given the cabin by her mentor M. K. Razdan last month.
    In fact, it is an open secret that Razdan had recommend her name to the PTI Board as his successor. The Board had refused to accept this, fearing that Razdan will then continue to rule PTI by proxy.
    Also, the CEO has reportedly stopped the transfer of a woman business correspondent outside Delhi.
    It is said that she had raised some “uncomfortable” questions” during an editorial meeting some time back, which was presided by M. K. Razdan, and attended by Tikoo.
    Sources said that the CEO was of the view that when Razdan was no longer holding administrative powers, he shouldn’t have transferred the business correspondent.
    It is learnt that a large number of PTI staffers in the national Capital and across the country are preparing individual “notes” for submitting them to the CEO, after the exit of Razdan, whom many describe as a “ruthless dictator” and the one who “always worked to promote only Kashmiris”.

  66. Rakesh, Bhaskar, Hemant, Gurudas have done great service exposing financial irregularities, shoddy work and gross abuse of powers of Padma, MSY, Chetan (big chamcha), John, Hirok, Jayanti. Jayanti and the Mumbai office staff were directed by John to clean up a flat which Padma forcibly occupied, receive her husband and children at BCT or airport, entertain them, paint the house, drop them at the station. Who will do all that chore when John goes? This Padma who tortured innocents like Mangaonkar should be made to pay a very heavy price. After coming at 12 noon everyday and enjoying office transport and free canteen for 2 decades, and watching videos and Kandy Krush games, she is now asked to report by 9 a.m. After that all she does is eat worm-infested upmas, plenty of gallons of garam tea, chat with the goons and gossip with her bosom pals on the phone and conspire against everyone. Noida plots enquiry will be going on and she will be booked. Picnic Trust of India is correct.

    So also the inefficient and lazy HR Manager who runs behind any woman and of course MSY and the gang Tyagi, Rajbir, Sehgal and the adm officer Prabhat who all survived though none of them every work except playing pc games. They should also be booted out along with Padma and her dirty stooges. Who will pay for their dirty and evil work over the decades? How many hundreds suffered because of transfers, lack of promotion, humiliation by this wicked woman and her agents. Jaipur, Indore, Lucknow bureaus are having her agents.

    Million dollar question is Why is the new CEO in silent mode?

  67. Dear Editor,

    1. Comments on Mess PTI is hitting the news stands all over world where ever agency scribes are expecting a ray of hope from new administration.

    2 A fresh notes on John Gonsalves surfaced after Delhi’s staff council meeting is now available for Pgurus readers.

    3. Since 2008, PTI Mumbai office is run by the news agency’s own Adolf Hitler John Gonsalves and not by the Regional Managers.

    4. A master at the “divide and rule” game, Gonsalves dictates the terms to the Regional Managers.

    5. The henchmen of John Gonsalves, who is 64 and should have retired four years ago, are Chetan Sanil, Administrative Officer, who joined in 2009 and Jayanti Mistry, whose designation is care taker but who behaves like the Number 2.

    6. Gonsalves and his gang have unleashed a reign of terror, threatening employees in Mumbai with transfers and putting them on night shifts.

    Chetan Sanil has usurped powers of the Regional Manager, who is a journalist, instead of being a professional administrator, as he should be.

    Sanil keeps all leave record with staff working in administration. He always displays the list of late marks of staff who are coming 10 to 15 minutes late and deducts half day casual leave for four late marks or deducts the salary if they don’t have any casual leave in balance.

    7. However, this norm hasn’t been applied to non-journalist Jayanti Mistry who has been coming late to office by two hours, since April 2009, as he is the henchman of Gonsalves.

    8. Ashwin Panchal, a shady reporter in the Mumbai Business Bureau, is the conduit of the Gonsalves-led workers union for advertisements and paid news.

    Panchal is known as a “Dalal” in Mumbai journalist world.

    9. Jayanti Mistry joined PTI as an Attender and is now Caretaker, behaves as if he owns the organization and has threatened staffo staff in front of all employees. They complained repeatedly to successive regional managers but nobody had the guts to act against this open goondaism.

    10. Gonsalves was made a journalist in 1997 and is now a Special Correspondent, but is yet to write a single news item, as his days are spent in his cabin, the office of the workers Union, which he uses as his private office to run his private empire.

    11. Nowhere in India will one find a Special Correspondent who can’t write a single sentence. This happens only in PTI. His energy has been spent in destroying the once cohesive atmosphere in Mumbai PTI office.

    12. He deserves an international award for his “divide and rule” policy. And for making PTI Mumbai office resemble a Nazi concentration camp, where employees get paid for scheming, bitching and espionage.

    13. It is due to his valiant efforts that in Mumbai, PTI has come to mean Picnic Trust of India, as his chamchas have been making merry, while other sincere employees slog it out.

    14. The new CEO should take immediate steps to stem the rot.

    15. Not the least, MSY’s crawler John went to an extreme rule to victimize, mentally harass and managed to get transferred one physically challenged employee ChandraKant Mangavankar (attender) to Indore some 8 years ago from Mumbai. John dictated all terms to former Nikkama MSA (the then GM-Adm) through MSY not to entertain his transfer petitions. Chandrakant could not even attend his old aged parents’ lives. His kids are studying in Maharashtra. It is a cruel victimization of a person who could not hear your voice. Even this hard honest employee is put on duty to hear telephone ring and bell of Indore’s Dalal-cum-Incharge Harshbardhan. This incharge is also surrogate kid of PTI Federation.

    New Management shall pay heed to this employee’s human rights and transfer him to Mumbai so that he could live a normal family life as these Federation buggers are enjoying since their inception in PTI womb.

    16.New dispatch on poisonous snake, aasteen ke saanp- John will be released soon.

  68. Dear CEO,
    Press Trust of India,
    We want to draw you attention to corruption by the PTI Federation leaders like M S Yadav, John Gonsalves and others and aver that most of the comments on social sites running in the social media over the past one month are absolutely true and require you urgent intervention and attention.
    Several important documents have been published on social sites regarding corruption and misuse of PTI properties over past several years by M S Yadav, John Gonsaleves and other, but we have not seen or heard that any worthwhile action has been taken with regard to these issues.
    There are documents to prove how M S Yadav and another employee have re-purchased land bought by the Federation of PTI Employees Union early this year with mandate of the employees.
    In fact, the entire land deal smacks of abuse of power and loot of employees’ subscription by Yadav and co with tacit support of the previous regime.
    The role of some employees like Sunil Sehgal, Ajay Tyagi and Rajbir Singh has also come under question for illegally facilitating Yadav and co to transfer the said land on receipt of gratification like four-wheelers and cash.
    Similarly, Mr. Gonsalves has misused PTI properties in Mumbai to run business from the office promises in partnership with one Jayanti Mistry.
    Another glaring abuse of power relates to allotment of plots by the UP government to Yadav (one plot in name of self and another in his wife’s name), Subhash Chandra Malhotra and Padma Alva, the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).
    These people patronized a retired employee Pramod Goswami by giving him one extension after another in lieu of his service to them for obtaining land at Noida which was subsequently scrapped by the Supreme Court which also ordered a CBI probe in the matter.
    Nonetheless, the abuse of power by Yadav, Alva and others has been proved beyond doubt as with complicity of the then Lucknow Bureau Manager A M Khan and senior journalist Pramod Goswami, they had got plots allotted in the first place.
    Sir, hundreds of employees have suffered under Yadav’s vindictive rule as the issues like transfer, posting and promotion of employees were decided at his whims and fancies and deserving employees’ claims were outrightly rejected leading to their demoralization.
    Similarly, Yadav has had his say on appointment of bureau chiefs at Jaipur, Lucknow and Patna over the years based solely on the criteria that the persons appointed to the post must have capability to host federation meetings for which they should ability to raise upto Rs. 25 lakh and more.
    All PTI Managers at Patna, Lucknow and Jaipur have milked reputation of the organization to earn huge money for themselves and shared the booties with Yadav the proof of which can be found from Federation accounts.
    All these matters require your kind intervention and sort out the mess so that the brand name of PTI does not suffer in future.
    The social media is agog with reports of corruption in PTI by your predecessors and you can see for yourself hundreds of report in this regard on various social media sites.
    I would also like to draw your attention to an interesting development that John Gonsalves, the Federation of PTI Employees Federation at Mumbai has resigned from service as well as from the union, but instead of sending it to you he tendered resignation to M S Yadav who flew to Mumbai two days back to persuade Gonsalves to take back his resignation.
    I have heard from employees that Yadav and Gonsalves are playing out a drama and soon they will try to blackmail you on one pretext or other.
    Sources are also saying that after after resignation Gonsalves will be appointed on adhoc basis and allowed to hold union posts.
    Sir, we are also not happy with Yadav, Gonsalves, Swapan Acharya keeping the union in their absolute grip despite being on extension.
    Under the circumstances, we request you to sack all those employees’ leaders on extension and order a probe by only those officials with proven integrity to bring all these culprits to justice.
    Besides a probe, an FIR should also be filed against Yadav and co for corruption on the basis of credible documents available in social media.
    In the end, we employees look up to you to save PTI, employees and the union from the vice-like grip of the corrupt union leaders as well as corrupt officials in the management.

  69. Gurudas:Mr Jhon C gonsalves President of PTI Employees union’s completely misusing pti property and power for personal intrest since long and due to such advantage after 4 years retirement sitting on federation president .

    Kundan Kumar I am jealous of John Gonsalves as despite being mired in neck deep corruption, he continues to be employed as the Special Corruption at PTI Mumbai and additionally holds responsibility as the Federation of PTI Employees’ Union President, Trustee in EPFO and Staff Council member. For the past couple of days, I am trying to find out whether 64 year-old Gonsalves is Jehadi John or Johnny Gaddar as to me he has worked as Jehadi on behalf of all powerful corrupt Federation General Secretary MS Yadav by innovating new techniques to milk both system and employees for collective aggrandizement which makes him Johnny Gaddar for us. An epitome of corruption, I don’t know as to how long he would continue to rule over us. I feel sad and bitter that this moron has not quit despite expose about how he misused the office properties for business purposes. Hope his parents, wife and children and grandchildren are aware about corrupt activities of this mc/bc moron.

  70. Dear Comrades of PTI Workers Union, Delhi. I have learnt from colleagues that a General Body Meeting of the Delhi Unit is scheduled today to apprise the members about outcome of the Federation Executive meeting held in Patna last week and the Staff Council meeting yesterday. I am not aware of any more agendas, but I do know that members are allowed to ask questions with the permission of the Chair. I appeal or rather beg you all members to quiz MS Yadav about land deal with the membership fees and other contributions by the member employees. It will in fitness of things if 63 year-old Yadav takes moral responsibility for his brazen misconduct and quits as the General Secretary of Federation of PTI Employees’ Union on his own and so do his high profile chamchas, namely Sunil Sehgal, Ajay Tyagi, Rajbir Singh and Shri Krishan as they too are party to the crime for which they received pay offs by Yadav. It has utterly shameful on the part of Yadav to involve his family members in corruption for which his kins can be and must be booked under relevant sections of law. I have done my bit by releasing more than 50 paged documents to expose corruption by Yadav and his Chalis Chor and now onus is on you people in Delhi to take up the matter by forcing Yadav and co to quit at once or give a representation to the management to proceed against them as per law. The documents, now in public domain, don’t lie but it has to be pursued to logical conclusion. Friends, if an individual like me can bring Yadav and to their knees, then I have no doubt that your collective pressure will force him to quit and submit himself to law. It’s a day of reckoning and I am optimistic that 400 plus members at Delhi will not disappoint colleagues in centres. I will remain glued to development in Delhi office throughout the day and pray for our conscientious colleagues to hear voice of their heart to free us from more than two decades’ subjugation from Yadav and his ‘transfer, posting and promotion’ raj. Remember, all devilish forces and individuals have met an equally brutal end.

  71. Dear Editor,

    1. PGurus shall now write a fresh story on MESS PTI based on 47 comments.

    2. Nation is watching all PTI activities on social media since Pgurus, and someone’s FB flashed stories and comments on PTI’s sick management and two leg termites of employees’ union and very rotten federation.

    3. New PTI management is expected to take a very simple action against Neta of Federation MSY and his bubble-gum President JohnGonsalves of Mumbai PTI and put them on task for doing open scandals in employees’ land deals, and for running a parallel private company in office premise (Mumbai) that led to wide corruption scams in a sequel for last two and half decades under the umbrella of outgoing & now without pellet gun E-In-C (MKR)

    4. Simply rusticating these two scandalists, extortionists, and money minters will not satisfy the nation and do justice with badly stricken remaining employees of the organisation. They should also be brought on crime book by registering cases in Parliament Street Police station right away serving them legal notice.

    Today Management is holding a staff council meeting with these “Mahan Netas”, worst than any political leader who sucked every thing of employees and organisation. They had rushed back from Patna’s flop executive meeting.

    Every one shall keep three “S” Slogans : Sack Netas. Save PTI. Safeguard innocent Employees.

  72. Amit Yadav , branch code 6016, IFS- 0006016 AC/No. -601610100045687 Bank of India, Delhi. On the face of it, it may appear to be an innocuous account number of an individual. Most of you will ask – who is Amit Yadav? Let me tell you guys that Amit Yadav is not an ordinary chap, but he is the son of all powerful General Secretary of Federation of PTI Employees Union MS Yadav, the antecedents of whom is known to you all as the media mafia. This account number was circulated by Yadav among his chamchas for generous contribution. In 2012, I had met the Income Tax Director (Investigation), Patna with this document and during discussion he told me that a case under prevention of corruption case can be made out against Yadav and asked me to furnish some more documents as evidence. At that time, I kept quiet fearing retribution. But this time, I propose to pursue the case to logical conclusion. Friends, I request all of you to join my crusade to shame Yadav for collecting extortion money from employees in his son’s account over the years. Pls deposit a handsome sum of Rs. 1 in the abovementioned account through transfer by mobile banking. Looking forward to you continuous support in my crusade against corruption by our union leaders.

    A lot has been said about corruption and other malpractices by MS Yadav, life long General Secretary of Federation of PTI Employees Union. This piece of expose is related to Yadav’s proverbial ‘Chota Shakeel’ John Gonsalves and how he has used, abused and milked the system to run business from PTI premises in Mumbai. Let the world know that Gonsalves, who is 64 year old, is on the verge of completion of fourth year’ extension at the end of August. I can go on and on to dwell on Gonsalves’ role in making a monster out of Yadav for extension and other benefits. I request you all to read the post even if you can’t understand minute details.

    Friends, I thank you all for your support to our collective crusade against organized coŕruption by a ‘criminal” union leader MS Yadav and his thugs for over the past two decades. Just now I have received yet another piece of information about Yadav and it is about use of federation funds for purchase of prime land by him for construction of a guest house for employees visiting New Delhi. The said plot measuring 200 sq metre was purchased in 2011 with federation funds near his own palatial house in Palam Area. The property purchased from crores of rupees collected from corporates for diamond jubilee celebrations was registered in the name of an employee who was not a member or office bearer of the federation then. I know the name but don’t want to make public at this stage. I have learnt from a source that the said piece of land having a market value of Rs. 2.50 crore has been sold to Yadav’s son at a measly sum of Rs. 73 lakh. Much to horror of unsuspecting employees and members of union, the money was not deposited in federation’s bank account and embezzled by Yadav against false bills, including one for payment to lawyer hired to plead wage board award. Friends, it is a deliberate act of corruption and misappropriation of union funds by Yadav who must have believed that he will get away this time too, but we will not let this matter die down so easily. I implore delegates attending the federation executive meeting at Patna to quiz Yadav about misappropriation of union funds for purchase of plot and selling it to his own son. Yadav is the only beneficiary from both sides of land deal. He owes an explanation to all members. Let me warn Yadav that an union leader of a public sector bank Jitendra Singh is languishing in a jail post-conviction in corruption cases. It’s matter of time when we will get after Yadav and his thugs for various acts of commission and omissions. Cheers.

    Somebody just sent me salary slip of Federation of PTI Employees Union’ despotic and rogue General Secretary MS Yadav. I can find out one interesting point if not many that the 63 year old Yadav, who can’t write a single line in English, is actually a journalist Group 1B. I know that he had managed promotion along with Swapan Acharya in August 2013 by applying due pressure on the then management. The promotion of Yadav and Acharya was kept as closely guarded secret and the house journal that routinely carries promotion and other decisions related to employees was not dispatched to many bureaus so that people should not come to know about it. The salary slip also puts to end speculation about Yadav’s age which is about 63 years. He should have retired in November 2013, but he continues in extended service though he does not do any work either as a journalist or engineer. I only hope and pray that the conscience of new management pricks at some point and crooks like Yadav, John Gonsalves and Swapan Acharya are booted out at once to restore credibility at our work place.

    Friends, on the eve of our country’s 69th Independence Day, I am posting five documents related to Noida plot allotment scam in 2005 figuring some esteemed colleagues like Padma Alva; MS Yadav, India’s leading trade union leader representing mediapersons; Rakesh Hari Pathak, known prominently for his closeness to Nira Radia and some other names at our work place . Yadav, in fact, used his influence on our Lucknow Bureau Chief A M Khan, Bhasha journo Pramod Goswami and of course then UP CM Mulayam Singh Yadav to get two plots allotted -one in own name and another for his daughter. While the mixed double pair of MS Yadav and Padma Alva have abused their power to destroy career and prospects of hundreds of journalists and non-journalists, including me, no action was taken after their names figured in Noida plot allotment scam. I request you all to share this post in bulk to apply pressure on the management to take action against these crooks who in any case are on extension. I assure you all that I will take corruption by Yadav and co to court in due course of time.(The Details documents available on Kundan Kumar Post)

  73. LDALl-SCAM-MS YADAV Pls bear with me for writing a comprehensive text about illegal purchase of 200 square yard land by Federation of PTI Employees Union in the same of an employee Sunil Sehgal by deed no. 14176, dated 15/12/2011 at the cost of Rs. 65 lakhs and its subsequent sale to Yadav’s Amit Yadav and another employee Shri Krishan’s son Sourabh Kumar on 25/1/2016 for Rs. 73 lakh with additional stamp duty of about Rs. 4 lakh. Now my objections to the said land deal are given below point by point: 1. The documents of deeds related to land deal mention Sunil Sehgal as the sole vendor and owner of the property. I want to know who authorized the Federation of PTI Employees Union, the rightful owner,
    to purchase the land in Sehgal’s name. 2. Kya Rs. 65 lakh Sehgal ka paisa tha ya uske baap ka? 3. Who authorized the Federation to purchase land from membership, levy and other collection from employees? Was such a decision taken at the AGM/Executive meetings of the Federation at any point? Were the employees and members of Federation informed about the decision? 4. If none of these requirements were met even once, then why did Federation go for land purchase in brazen violation of its bylaws? 5. Even years after purchase of the land currently valued at over Rs. 2 crore, the member employees were never informed about the said property nor their consent was taken for its sale. 6. Who decided the rate for liquidation of that property and how the valuation of Rs. 73 lakh was arrived at? 7. Why the money accruing from land sale was not deposited in the Federation’s bank account and its utilization accounted for? 8.n one of my previous posts I posted a document in which the charter accountant had clearly stated that the PTI management is solely responsible for Federation’s account and if so, did Yadav and co took prior permission of the management before purchase and sale of the said piece of land. 9. If the said land had to be sold at all, then why competitive bidding was not invited? If Yadav can sell that land to his and Krishan’s sons, any number of employees could have made a bid to legitimize the deal, but it was done in hushef manner. 10. Now let us dwell about the role of Ajay Tyagi and Rajbir Singh, both of were witness to both purchase and sale of the land for which they reportedly received huge pay off with Tyagi getting Eco Sports car and Singh a bounty of Rs 10 lakh cash for favour to Yadav. Dear the likes of Tyagis and Singhs, besides Sehgal who received pay off in terms of a Honda City car, I am prepared to be hanged for exposing o
    rganized coŕruption by Yadav and co, but the matter will not end there. I will continue to shame you all for your culpability and take the matter forward in the court of law. Shame on you – Yadav and co. You could have opted for prostitution which would have more rewarding that selling trade union. Your rightful place is in hell. Good Night. (the contentes available on face book of kundan kumar post)

  74. Things are getting curioser and curioser in PTI. While the management has superannuated several top-ranking and efficient journalists such as V S Chandrashekar ( News Editor), Mohan Narayan ( Deputy news editor ), Vijay Satoskar ( __) at the age of 60 years, several non-contributing employees viz. M S Yadav ( Engineering Department), John Gonsalves ( Editorial Department ), Swapan Acharya ( Engineering Department ) are continuing to enjoy all the benefits of permanent employment well beyond 60 years of age. Is it because these worthies were the flunkies of M K Razdan and ran the PTI Federation on his instructions, while unleashing a reign of “terror-transfers” against those who dared to question their conduct?
    It is common knowledge in Mumbai that Shri John Gonsalves along with Shri Jayanti Mistri has started a business called Remote Site and Oilfield Support Servies ( ROSS ). The address of the company is Room No. 209, Second Floor, 126 Vadgadi Standard ,Vithaldas Chandan Street, Mumbai 400 003. The Liaison Office of the company is C/O MAA Corporate Services, Plot no 110, Elphinstone Estate, 6 Dr Kuvershi Raishi Marg, Dana Bunder, Masjid Bunder ( East ) 400 009.
    Further, the Chartered Accountants of ROSS are M/s Kishor Sheth and Company, 19 Kapadia Chambers, Devjhi Ratanshi Marg, Carnac Bunder, Mumbai 400 009.This firm is also the internal auditor of PTI Mumbai.
    ROSS has a bank account with ICICI Bank at Sir Vithaldas Thackersay Trust Building, Samachar Marg, Near Stock Exchange, Fort, Mumbai 400 001.The ICICI Bank account number is 623505385233. The signatories of this accounts are Shri John Gonsalves and Smt. Manjula Mistri ( wife of Shri Jayanti Mistri ).The phone number listed in this account are 022-22880241 and 9869545429. The first number is the landline number of PTI Mumbai and has been allotted to the Federation of PTI Employees’ Unions, of which Shri Gonsalves is the President. The second mobile number is of Smt.Manjula Mistri.
    Reportedly, deals worth lakhs of rupees have been carried out by ROSS , with Shri Gonsalves withdrawing large sums of money on some days. It is highly probable that this company and ICICI Bank account is being used by Shri Gonsalves and Shri Mistri as a conduit for taking out money from the PTI works committee, canteen, PTI Credit Society, Mumbai, sale of furniture and fixtures of PTI Mumbai during renovation in 2008-2009, among other things.
    Needless to add, all the activities of ROSS are conducted from the Federation office on the Second Floor of UCO Bank Building i.e. from PTI’s Mumbai office.
    Detail paper attached……

  75. I am sorry all my seniors, we all of us have been writing about some of them, like MKR, M S Yadav, Padma Alva, Sr.Manager H R. or Shakeel Ahmad, but we you are either forgetting for you don’t know about this “NAGIN”of PTI. It is non-other than Seema Neb, all others who we have been talking about, are all acting according to this NAGIN, who is getting everything done by staying behind the scene. It is she who is guiding all these people about what to do and how to do, which is being followed by them. She is not as simple as she looks, she is the most cunning person. She joined PTI as a Law Officer, about ten years back, with a meager salary. Today she is our Legal Consultant, it seems she gets a salary of 80,000/-per month and that too, she visits PTI only for two days a week. She is provided office vehicle where-ever she has to go, because she is a Kashmiri. I really don’t understand, why such heavy salary and other facilities to this one person, when there are more than 20,000 advocates in delhi who can work at a cheaper salary. Just because she is a Kashmiri and a crook, and making all the people dance according to her wish. Why the new Management, should not go for a cheaper advocate, if need be or even pay only consultation charges to a advocate, instead of this “ NAGIN” who is drinking PTI’s employees blood, taking such heavy salary.

  76. After perusing all the comments I can vouch waht all have been written about Press Trust Of India and M K Razdan and his stooges and federation office bearers of the PTI employees Federation are true words by words. The facts could verified if the Chairman and PTI Board of Directors conduct an inquiry themselves without delegating it anyone else.
    People with documentary evidence will appear before them to prove what has been written are 100% correct and there is no exaggeration in it.

  77. 3. Freedom to probe all affairs of PTI Jaipur.
    It is requested that the new Management in this Agency would Probe into Jaipur PTI Building construction deals, a big waive in lease money amounting to lakhs of rupees by former Congress government on “sifarish” of party high command, and later a cash fine worth lakhs of rupees by Rajasthan’s new Government in 2015. JDA and PTI’s correspondence specially one of JDA Zone-I letter dated 8/06/2015 written to PTI for fine and delay in completion of work can be taken up for investigation.

    Role and intentions of PTI’s very well known architect (who has also designed other pti buildings in the country), Jaipur Bhasha Manager, Neta, and not the least outgoing Edito-in-Chief and former CEO MKR should be investigated thoroughly. E-i-C had spent three days in Jaipur to meet BJP ministers with a strong reference of Delhi based Financial BJP Minister but no one paid heed to PTI’s top gun in last week of November, 2015. The surrogate employee did take that old CEO to JDA Commissioner in Jaipur to show his close doors. What a pity. PTI building matters, if exposed properly, will reveal a strong nexus and corruption among PTI Management, builders, architect, unionist, and local manager at every levels.

  78. 2. FREEDOM to BREATHE in Jaipur Office.

    At a Federation’s recent meeting in Jaipur, a number of innocent and lame employees narrated their feelings against the local manager who is abusive and misusing Neta’s blessings and power. The employees had also complained their grievances to the management in writing but Unionists did not leave Delhi PTI managers to act independently.

    Jaipur PTI Bureau needs complete overhauling and transfers of Federation’s “Chamchas” and Neta’s relative to far flung states.

    Entire Rajasthan, specially PTI in Jaipur, is home constituency of very simple looking Neta, who is non-veg and teetotaler but allows every of his Federation to enjoy “drinks and botty” on every night during federation’s meetings, which is very compulsory for the host state bureau to arrange “daaru, meat, sight seeing, gifts….etc”

    Present Bhasha Manager Mathur is surrogate employee of former Congress leaders and enjoying a single stay for the last 30 years in Jaipur PTI. His appointment on Bhasha desk was made on a strong “sifarish” of a late Congress leader belonged to his caste, and he was quickly given one after another promotions without any merit. Because Bhasha-man had put former PTI GM (based in Mumbai) to a very critical and embarrassing moments against MKR. Then Bhasha man made a somersault towards rising Neta who was working with his team to saddle MKR to power as GM, then as CEO and E-i-C. To keep this fellow in Jaipur, 3-managers (who were earlier loyal to union and management) and other employees were transferred over night at certain intervals.

    Secondly, a veteran Congress leader had striked down a deal with former CEO MKR to appoint this bugger Hindi desk man as Acting Manager so that PTI’s land files of “B-5 Jhalana Dungari Institutional Area” in Jaipur get momentum and clearance from Jaipur Development Authority without much bureaucratic hurdles. This desk manager’s malicious union activities are very well know to Rajasthan’s media circle. Bugger also managed to fix his daughter in Delhi-PTI by conceding every demand of Federation specially organizing Federation’s executive and AGM in Jaipur’s luxury hotels. This should be a matter of investigation how a Manager arranged lakhs of rupees with the support of political leaders and ministers by abusing Managership. He is the one who does extortion and take “hafta” from photographer, and district correspondents.

    Thirdly, this Bhasha Manager opened the Jaipur office for commercial use for private persons and PTI-employee’s blood relatives as someons have studied, living for decades and enjoying all “affairs” in office premises for free, however at the cost of company’s coffer. PTI’s Bureau was used to be the office-cum-residence for manager, but this Bhasha man got land allotments under journalist quota in Jaipur and Kishangarh in recent years. The very man also running a fortnightly newspaper from his residence address and he is cultivating all odds to please union’s all executive members.


    Freedom to Jaipur PTI Bureau from Delhi’s crook-unionists, and a corrupt, illiterate and non-productive Bhasha-PTI Manager.

  80. Through this I humbly request the new management to kindly look into the problems written by some of our senior Journalist plus the qualifications of people like M K Razdan, M S Yadav, Padma Alva and the Sr. Manager H R. I am told that he is not even a graduate, because he has not submitted any papers to PTI till date. Sir, here I would like to mention that no qualified H R person, with self respect worked for more than two months, this man is working for last four years, playing cards, and raise in salary every year. Half of Tech. Staff say that some are B A and some are, what these people are doing with such qualifications in Tech. dept, and getting Sr. Regional Engineer grade just because they are Haryanavis. I am Diploma in Mech Engineering, B A, Diploma in Journalism and I am Sr. Tech, because I am a South Indian and my mother tongue is Telegu. There is a clause in the confirmation letter anybody is liable to be transferred, but there are people joining and retiring in one center, I was transferred nine times in 30 years, why? Why not others like M S Yadav, who has not touched any tool from 1987, being an Engineer, but gets grades for himself and Haryanves, who have no tech. qualification, I am an Engineer with a Diplama as a Techin Mech. Engineering. Anybody in one center for more than ten years should be transferred.
    M K Razdan a Bsc pass, comes to office for just few hours, to enjoy the Kashmiri atmosphere. He has given Administration to M S Yadav and Padma Alva, who just do Politics, and no administration. Shakeel Ahmed and Sr. Manager H R are just rubber stamps who just want extensions every year. M S Yadav should have been a peon in PTI, as per his education. I am told that M K Razdan does’t want V S Chendrashekar, as C E O, just because he is a South Indian. Chendrashekar in one person who doesn’t even have his lunch, he works works and works. MKR gives a reason that Chendrashekar is 61 years, so he can’t be the C E O, but he can be CEO at the age of 72 and all the Federation people can be there even at the age of 65. If MKR wants Samir Kaul, it’s just because he is a Kashmiri.
    Sir, lastly I would request you to be kind enough to go in depth and find out the harassment I had to face because of this group of MKR, M S Yadav, Padma Alva, Shakeel Ahmed and our highly qualified Sr. Manager. H R as to why I was transferred to Indore, then the 10th, Sept, 2008, instants, than my demotion by Shakeel Ahmed, despite of having the enquiry report in my favor. Harassment by Hashwardhan Prakash a Journalist who was acting like a GOONDA at the Directions from Delhi. Other staff not co-operating with me,( despite of my writing to management about what was happening there all copes are there) a union meeting was called by the local Manager, who is on contract, and passing of a resolution to transfer me to a far off place and putting all types of pressure for me to go and join so that the legal action taken by me is dismissed.

  81. Someone just asked me if the comments by some “Atul” were written by me. I just wish to clarify that I have not written those comments. I left PTI in 2000 to join another company and am not following PTI developments that closely.

  82. I am grateful to all those Senior Journalists who have written as to how PTI was brought to this poor state by M K Razdan, Shakeel Ahmed & Padma Alva. Sir, you are forgetting one more journalist who was called as “The Chanakya “ of PTI. He was the advisor to M S Yadav who is 9th standard pass but 10th standard failed, but today he is Senior Regional Engineer, who cannot even write his designation in English. It was this Journalist who used to be the Mediator between PTI Management & the Federation. It was this Journalist who was responsible for some Good Senor Journalists to leave PTI because he used to harass both Journalists & non-journalists through M S Yadav & M K Razdan. I for one hold this Journalist responsible for atleast 50% of today’s PTI. I hope some of you know this and agree with me.
    PTI is an Organization with a principle of no profit and no loss, this organization cannot go under loss as our previous South Indian Managements were good planners, who planned well by investing in Real Estate and building their own buildings at Delhi, Hyderabad and taken permission from government for building their own offices at Bangalore and Kolkata, so that we will have our own building, and rest of the space is let out for rent which will be one way of revenue. The present M K Razdan’s management is enjoying the fruits of that. The group Razdan,Yadav,Padma Alva and the “ Chanakya “ the Journalist were all against South Indians. These people made sure that one by one South Indians leave PTI with one reason or the other, and Razdan wanted only Kashmiri lobby & Yadav a Haryanvi .
    Razdan changes his car every second year, while N R Chandran and previous General Managers used to come from Chembur to V T Station by Electric Train and walk from V T to office at Fountain Circle. After the car is changed, the old car is given to Padma and Yadav for their personal use. Razdan, has one lucky No and the same No should be there on all his new cars. Razdan had let out the basement on a very cheap rate of rent, to a real estate company, as his would be daughter-in-law was a employee in that organisaton owned a Kashmiri. He would pickup and drop her by himself by PTI car, driver Kishor knows better and more.
    Mr. Razdan is just a Bsc, and he joined at PTI, Chandigarh, years ago which he gave it in writing to PTI Board, but today he has P.hds working under him. He does not even have a Diploma in Journalism. Samir Kaul is more qualified than him, as myself and Samir were in the same batch of Journalisam in Bharti Vidya Bhawan, who is Bureau chief today. Ajay Kaushika a Bsc was an Engineer in PTI , who later became G M Technical, because he used to give Maths tuitions to Razdans son who was weak and failed. Padma Alva is just a Graduate, was a failure as a reporter then on the desk, was made the Regional Manager and latter CAO, just because her friendliness with M S Yadav and this particular Journalist and also because she was related to a Congress leader a former Governor of Rajasthan. She sits in a glass chamber watching T V and plans all the Political Vengeance with M S Yadav. All the letters she signs with such wonderful English are drafted by somebody else as she doesn’t have the caliber.
    As I was one of the members of the decision making body of PTI Union and he was also. Once there came a difference of opinion between him & me as he was proposing a split in the Union and he himself alongwith M S Yadav would be a puppet Union in the hands of Management. I was opposing this as we were breaking the unity. Because of this difference of opinion between me & him, under the guidance of this Journalist, M K Razdan transferred me to Indore. There was a clear cut instruction from M S Yadav to one of the Chamchas of John Gonsalvis that I should be thaught a lesson because I opposed their idea.
    Just because I opposed the idea of the division my junior was superseded and promoted. As I opposed this illegal promotion the heavy weight Champion of PTI, Padma Alva called me thrice to her chamber and warned me to be with M S Yadav’s group and directly warned me that action will be taken against me. Why a CAO was interfering and warning me to be with M S Yadav’s union was because the journalist whom I am talking about had asked her to do so, as he knew that I had enough support. Under protest I joined the other Union and contested 2003 election, he was scared of my popularity and he would loose hold on both management and union, he got me transferred to Indore. It was he who was responsible for punishments of both journalists and non-journalists, who had taken membership of other union. It was he who would guide the management in the matter of postings. It was he who promoted an operator who would never attend to his duties at Hyderabad PTI was made the Manager. Using his influence it was he who got M S Yadav’s daughter admitted to medical college at Hyderabad.
    I fought my legal battle to stop my transfer and failed to get a stay, hence I had to join at Indore as it was my bread & butter. As per the Instructions of both management and union at Delhi I did not get any cooperation and on several occasions I was threatened by the local dada S K Apte, a 10th standard pass who joined PTI Indore as junior operator and retired at Indore itself.
    One year after I joined Indore office Harshwardhan Prakash, a Hindi journalist with no experience who was a known Goonda element in Badwani, in Madhya Pradesh was specially haired by Padma Alva, M S Yadav and this journalist, with special instruction to teach me a lesson.
    On 10th September 2008, when I was on night duty I was called to the office and was beaten with an iron rods by five staffers including the Manager inside a Office room closing the doors. Instruction had come from Delhi for this action. I had to leave office with bleeding injuries. I went to the local police station to complain after getting first aid from a nursing home. I could see the whole team was already there sitting with the SHO, my complaint was not lodged, but a false FIR was made against me under the pressure that they are from the press.
    Initially I was suspended, a one sided inquiry was held by an advocate of their choice. Even the Enquiry officer in his whole report he had said it was five of them who beat me, but because of the request from PTI management, at the end of the report he was forced to write that I was guilty. Based on this one line report against me Shakeel Ahmed not only demoted me but forced me to join the same center once again. Despite of my protest I had to join the same center as this was my bread and butter and my family is dependent on me.
    The false FIR which was lodged by these people lasted for three years in the court and was dismissed as there was no evidence against me, and even the enquiry report was not in their favor. As all the allegations against me were cleared, I sent a legal notice to all the five of them. As soon as they received the notice an urgent meeting of union was called by the local manager, and a resolution was passed, saying that I should be transfer to a far off place so that I should not be allowed to file a suit against these five people. The PTI Management at Delhi immediately acted, to protect these five people as they had acted on 8th sep, 2008, as per their instructions, and posted me from Indore to Kohima.
    As this transfer was being forced upon me, I went to court against both the matters, of transfer and contempt of court. Since May 2012, I am not getting my salary, and I am still fighting against this corrupt PTI Management. Every time they write a letter to me they are forcing me to go and join there.
    This corrupt Management even filed a false case of 420 CRPC, against those who were members of the other union , as B R Bhaskar & Others. Except myself all others joined the union headed by M S Yadav, and the case was withdrawn against them, including Ghasiram, who had already retired, because he (Ghasiram ) had filed a case against M S Yadav, as he belonged to a low cast. Ghasiram’s name was withdrawn, as there was an agreement between both of them that Ghasiram’s son Neeraj would be taken into PTI, as a Technician.
    Yadav, even told people that he is the AGM, in PTI. Wherever M S Yadav, goes for mostly personal work, along with his PS, Md. Mehrrudhin, he Is given an Office Car, by non other then the all powerful CAO, Padma Alva. Whether it is M K Razdan or M S Yadav, and his men like Nagendar Rawat, Sunil Goud, Rajbir Singh, can come and go out of Office any time they wish.
    It is years, that bottled drinking water of PT I is supplied through Office vehicle at the AGM, M S Yadav’s house. The cook in M S Yadav’s house is officially the lift Operator in PTI. It is has been ages that M S Yadav, has touched any tools, as he is a Tech. man , even without touching any tool, and a 10th Class fail goes on getting promotions. He is running 63, and is yet to get his retirement letter from his friend Padma Alva. The Photo Album, of M K Razdan, you find a familiar face i. e of Post Graduate in H R, from Vaishali University, in Bihar (where degrees are sold), who is Sr. Manager H R, who doesn’t even know what is H R. He speaks other then Bengali his mother tongue Punjabi, Haryanvi etc. which he uses wherever it is needed. He is officially busy all the time, playing CARDS on his computer, but gets rise every year for buttering both his Seniors and Neta ji. M K Razdan hardly sits in his cabin, but he needs weather of Kashmir, so there are 7 ACS fitted only in his cabin.
    Sometime after the incidence of 10th September 2008, when I was posted at Indore, this journalist wanted to suppress M S Yadav, Yadav in anger joined hands with management directly and he made sure that this great journalist was forced to leave PTI. The poor man had to face the same tune what he did with his Seniors . The golden era of PTI was brought to this poor status by M K Razdan & leaders of PTI’s Puppet Federation, it is they who extension even after 60 years, may be till 66 years.

  83. I am amused by the sudden sprouting of Atul and glad that he is acting like Shakespeare’s Fool, without of course the wisdom of the character. Do i know you Atul? What is your full name and when did you work at PTI? Don’t hide behind just the first name.

    I am afraid you are a danger to the profession of journalism. Because you have little regard for facts. After reading your diatribe against Sri, G Srinivasan, me and others, I know facts are not your strong point. And to think you worked for PTI! I do not expect you to know the famous dictum
    “Comment is free, but facts are sacred” The famous words by CP Scott, the editor of Guardian (Manchester) have guided journalism and journalists for a long time before the profession began degenerating and fawned charlatans and let them loose on the “Ink Street.”

    Sri has already clarified his position over your allegations – all untrue and I know it. GS is not an outsider and worked with PTI for close to 20 years and crossed swords with MKR. He is also well informed abt PTI even after he left, needless to say because of MKR. You have described me “lackadaisical” and I conceded your right to comment and so have no problem over this. But u also said I requested for an assignment to write “Parliamentarians for new Millennium” post- retirement. I did not retire but resigned in August 2000. I was asked to write the book by MKR in October 1999 after Atal Bihari Vajpayee won the elections for a second successive time. MKR gave me all facilities to write the book, including the use of a laptop, a rarity at the time. i worked from home and office and finished the huge book in July 2000. Please read the Preface of the Book carefully.

    I am amused by your description of PTI building, rat-infested, foul smelling all. The PTI building was the brainchild of its former GM KS Ramachandran, a simple and honest man, who had the vision to build this modern structure, taking loan from Bank of India. What was done later was renovation to suit the needs of computerusation and general modernisation. That was done by P Unnikrishnan and NR Chandran. MKR of course further improved the facilities by spending a fortune which was necessary. Each GM has contributed to the building.

    What is being discussed here is no coffee shop gossip. And the fact you have joined it may have altered its character to what you have called it!

    Atul, I hope you are relatively young and still have years to go. It is clear you were in the wrong profession. I dont know you are still a journalist. Please find your strong points and try to excel there- best of luck. You may excuse me if you have left the profession for health reasons. God Bless Cheers RCR

    • PTI= fearless is a fiction !!
      this Honourable Mr Atul fellow is defending MKR….we should not mind. “HMV” is a classic Indian legacy.

      In this case it may be master himself behaving like master………..PTI was not allowed to go UNI way…….!!! ((perhaps i have heard it before……Emotion and commitment always mattered less at 4 Parliament Street. If New Delhi continues to be Aurangzeb’s delhi……. 4 Parliament Street was ‘Thakur’s tizori” of Sholay — when Dharmendra tells Thakur ….”ek galti ki thakur sahab hamey tizori dekha dee” — Read Tizori for “head quarter”

      I REALIZED ALL THAT AND WANTED TO MOVE OUT ! THERE WAS A SABOTAGE…and ultimately i moved out with a deep sense of hurt

      ADDING ….(from my blog written in 2010)
      In professional world today, I am sure many would find their career hampered merely because of openly befriending a man who had fallen from the management grace. Well, I am personally a testimony to that. In May 2001, I found myself in that situation the moment words spread at 4 Parliament Street that I had fallen from the boss M K Razdan’s grace.
      Not long ago, all my colleagues would be impressed as I was flattered by his use of the phrase, “ND is a man for all seasons”. (Wow!)
      But the moment it spread like wildfire that I had spoken against the boss and had some kind of argument in his ‘closed’ chamber, my colleague and supposedly the best of friends and colleagues initially whispered and then slowly thought it was best for them not to speak to me.
      Even outside PTI; I found as I negotiated my way through the ruthless world of the working atmosphere of Delhi, or in general the so called world of achievers and winners – I am sorry to say, I often had to cope with the mean. Somehow I thought, one should get isolation from the self-seeking lot!

  84. atul, you appear to know more about me and could you please tell me what car was gifted to me since i am not such a well informed journalist like you. i did not know that a car was gifted to me.

  85. atul, i think you please check your facts. i joined “Vijay Times” as the delhi bureau chief in 2005 and was there till 2008 and it is just that the paper was bought by “Times of India” and closed down. yes, i was in ians for a brief while and quit of my own accord and not as you have mentioned. as regards the story of president’s rule in u.p. it was not imposed at the time you have mentioned about my missing it. it was not imposed than and it was run by another colleague and mkr ordered him to move to desk for a brief while before being brought back to reporting. atul, i hope you know that i am still in “The Statesman” as editorial consultant.

  86. Hi many have said and many more will say. The fact remains that who is asking for the unsolicited opinion. One of you (ref Rajamani, who retired gracefully despite having a lackadaisical attitude in work ) has left a comment here and speaks about the positives and negatives of his editor-in-chief. But quite conveniently he forgot to mention that he had requested for a post retirement job of writing PTI potraits of Indian Parliamentarians in which he has been gaga over many thing including the editor-in-chief and rightly so. The other person who spoke about “chamchagiri” (my erstwhile colleague Sri Krishna). He resigned from the office because he could not take pressures of the changing media world in which electronic media was calling the shots. The media world had simply moved from “he said”, “they said” and the “the statement added”, to which my old colleagues were used. Change was needed and needed badly to survive in the environment and that change was provided by the Editor-in-Chief of PTI. Mr Krishna after he many sojourns with former President found himself accountable for misses and wrong stories (including imposition of Prez rule in UP which never came), sheepishly escaped and joined The Statesman where his stay was short lived followed by some months with IANS where he was also thrown out asthe Editor-in-Chief of that organisation was nearly drawn to depression by his writing. I hope this is enough of your require more including the car which was gifted to you. Let me stop here vis-a-vis you. Now comes Mr Achar who claims to be from the same state as that of Editor-in-Chief. I will not be ashamed in saying that he is simply jealous of the renovated PTI. He must have thought he would walk in the same office where mouses would run in the hollow space of ply-board on top and there will be that pungent smell of rotten varnish that used to greet visitors. Its a total corporate look office where many like only to visit for seeing the interiors. History will surely judge Mr Razdan and he will definitely stand class apart from others as the person who did not allow PTI to go UNI way. From empty coffers which he inherited from his predecessor, PTI today stand a profit making organisation and fearlessly independent. I left the organisation because of my own family problems but my love for the organisation never disappeared. For many of you I believe the saying goes that “grapes are sour”. There is a person by the name of Rakesh Kumar, just a question why are you bothered about Mr Razdan so much or his age and mind you Ratan Tata quit when he was 75. The companies act prescribes the age till 70 but the board can extend it till 75. Check your facts in case you are a journalist. Your information shows that you must have been a horrible one who never checked his facts. Narendra Dev, who barely could write a proper copy, was shifted to reporting in few weeks at desk only because of his availability to go for assignment. Today you talk about the mess as an old wine. You know it whose boots you licked to be in reporting. There were many deserving at that time even. G Srinivas (freelance journalist) you comment should be taken with a pinch of salt as you are an outsider whose view is as the comment are a reflection of myopic sight. Pradeep Parekh, Government does not pay a single penny to PTI so enjoy your cushy life. Deepak was hilarious in his comment and less said the better about his unsubstantiated and libelous. XYZ is really XYZ only. And Pgurus please do not run such unsubstantiated stories based on corridor or a coffee shop gossip. PTI has withstood all the storms in past and I am sure it will live upto its reputation notwithstanding negative thoughts from you all. Go and see yourself in mirror before commenting on the organisation that nurtured you and your family. Bye for now

  87. I agree with Krishnam Achari abt negatives outweighing positives abt MKR. Though I suffered immensely due to his whims and fancies, I don’t want to carry the grudge to my grave. At the evening of his life MKR, 73, should reflect on his past deeds and ask himself honestly if he gave more to PTI or got more . If he really allowed competent people under him to grow in a self respecting way, if he really played fair, if he did not promote some journalists with little competence in the profession to do the dirty job he did not want to do and in the process let such men to deal brutally with honest journalists. I know such men are out post retirement unable to do any journalistic work as they miss the protected environment of PTI under their Benefactor. I have a million thoughts to share with you all. May be gradually. Cheers RCR

  88. Having worked for nearly 23 years I feel saddened by what has been reported. I think whatever is being said is fair enough.

  89. Most of what is being said is correct. Having worked for nearly two-and-half decades, I would only add a lively organisation like PTI needs to rejuvenated by apt persons and not hangers on. The new CEO would indeed have an unenviable task cut for him.

  90. Very sad state of affairs in esteemed PTI. It pains to know about such a sorry state of affairs. May god save PTI and hope deserving people head it.

  91. Congrats to Rakesh, Tika, Rajamani (he has given a balanced view but common on, Rajamani, be fair, you will agree with me that in God’s scales, the negatives of the con man weigh a ton and the positives are only an ounce – by the way, who benefitted from MKR’s so-called medical help/assistance apart from the canines he has bred at his house?). You know how you were humiliated, you also know about all the other seniors were hounded out or had to leave unable to tolerate the harassment.

    All including Sri and Nirender and Deepak and Srini have been generous in their comments and quite restrained. Yes, the atrocities have to stop and the bleeding of the venerable institution, the pride of India should stop.

    Rakesh, dates of retirement etc now are irrelevant because the nearly fifty persons who are on extension will all have to go. Believe in the Karma theory like the Kashmiri shaivities and vaishnavites do and MKR will have to pay for his sins of commission and omission. The dues of the culprits should not be paid. I was a victim despite hailing from the same state because I did not share his perception and did not kow tow to his line. I did not get increments but God has been kind to me. He did not even spare the venerable director who propped him up in the first place and at the first opportunity spurned him. Small price, pals, not to worry. Our rewards are on the way and I still enjoy my drink in the press club.

    At last, in the independence month, we are winning our freedom in the same month of August here! God bless the new CEO and God bless all those who have had written in to pour out their anguish at what has happened. Let us celebrate Independence.

    Inshallah, the new CEO and his team would clean the garbage out, enquire into all deals in the last 2 decades or more, and restore the image of the institution. He should throw out the culprits but not let them go scotfree. Parochialism should be abolished and transparency and good naturedness should prevail. Those who have suffered under the tyranny of the tinpot dictator through transfers and lack of promotions should be given justice. For people like me it offers no benefit as it is many years since we retired but for those that remain, good luck and may God bless you all. You have all won. It is a moral victory. MKR and his two or three cronies (you know all of them), the fat cats who were his sycophants and doing his bidding should pay for their sins. Even in the UK that is the established practice. I came that day only to collect my dues but that one day showed me MKR has brought PTI to its last days of degradation and shame. I shall never enter the building again till the dogs are thrown out of the gates. Then we can breathe freely.

  92. Correction in my comment:

    1. Please read MSY’s retirement on 30/11/2013 and John C Gonsalves’ retirement date was 31/8/2012. Even PTI is confused and work under pressure on duo’s extension after no-retirement.

    2. Chairman of PTI is Mr H N Cama not as Mr Sama. Typing mistake is regretted.

  93. All those who have written so far have been right. Who remembers NRC or the other worthy gentlemen he mentions? The big manipulator got rid of KDR and Kundpur and Arun Kumar. Gave plush posting to HSR, and made piles of money in UK business.

    If what Tika suspects comes out right, it will be the end of PTI. I don’t recall a reporter by this name though I spent more than 30 years in India and abroad.

    The rot that started during MKR’s evil regime, continues unabated. Thieves and fat cats are thriving. Nepotism, corruption and very bad work atmosphere everywhere including administration.

    I left the company years ago and went back to collect some small dues a week ago. Here is what I saw and I am stunned. You’ll see why:

    I was stunned to see through the glass window the foul-mouthed old and fat woman ‘feminazi’ watching videos and playing candy krush (I know and the whole of PTI knows she had never done a day’s work in her entire career and in the night shift in the 80s and 90s used to just eat and sleep and snore), another old fat man a bengali chap (new recruit – seems he is the head of Hr, what a pity!) is playing card games on his PC with his back turned to the door, the FC (when I retired, the finance head was known as FC) now I don’t know what they call this chap who was checking Dalal Street quotes and placing orders (it was a week day – I don’t know what he does on other days), the Admin Officer, a bihari (from his slang) and the second in command of accounts (both new chaps who have never worked in a professional set up but must be drawing huge salaries) watching videos, jobs and real estate offers! Others were on the phone appearing to be busy chatting, or on their PCs surfing the net, Facebooking and keeping loud music. MKR has turned the office into a real mess. In Kashmiri there is a saying, etha raja thatha praja.

    The man at the gate told me this is how these folks spend time every single day. I saw him bring tiffin boxes. I asked for whom and he said, for Mem’sab (my foot!) and netaji. MKR, do you know all this? Well, you don’t even come to the office for 3 hours, how will you know? And what do you care?
    What a legacy the new CEO will inherit. He should first order an enquiry into all the black deeds of MKR and his henchmen who have been plundering the company.

    I am not jealous of the new CEO. He has loads of work to remove all the garbage in human form – the fat woman, the fat man and the useless admin and accounts guys (uncooperative) – I had to waste 2 precious hours watching all this. I didn’t go to the reporting/editorial as I could not waste any more time.
    A golden company turned to rubbish by MKR and his gang of thieves who plundered and betrayed the Trust.

  94. Dear Editor,
    Most of the comments on this feature are true and needed immediate attention of PTI Chairman Mr Sama and board of directors.

    1.Very important official facts: Mahaveer Singh Yadav (MS Yadav, senior Regional Engineer, Delhi) and General Secretary of PTI Federation had a retirement date : 30 August 2012 (30-8-2012) but he is continuing the service without a break of one one day. Delhi office (CAO) did issue him a retirement letter, though he managed to kept silence in office and sealed mouth of loyals. Netaji is one side of the same coin, that is existing MKR, whose power is seized manpower and gardener are withdrawn from residence.

    2. Yadav’s top sycophant and crawler John C Gonsalves, President of Federation and posted always in Mumbai, was to retire on 30/11/2013 but he is also getting full same pay without any change for the last three years. He is doing nothing in reporting but active in running his canteen in same PTI premise, doing extortion of commerce beat correspondents to bring advertisement for PTI Souvenir and Union’s AGM/Executive meeting, and threatening staff on transfer. He stays only three to four hours in office, and managing his own business outside.

    3. Yadav’s second breed of sycophants can be explored in Patna, Jaipur, Lucknow, Bhopal, Indore, Dehradun bureaux.

    4. If Mr Sama and CEO Designate from outside really desire to dump the old half century old coin (MKRMSY), then take oath of Gangajal that they would washout and dump these dirty union-baz, pseudo bureaucrats like Padma Alva (after MSA alias Shakeel exit), HR Manager and Senior PHOTO Editor, and a few in Delhi, Patna, Jaipur, Bhopal, Lucknow bureaux.

    5. Under the Company’s act no person below the age of 18 or above the age of 70 should be placed at CEO post, then how come MKR is surviving with lucrative package with lakhs of rupee at the age of 73 years. TATA, Birla, and INFOSYS heads have voluntarily offered their posts to juniors.

    6.Employees working inside are waiting for a sea change in the news agency, and those who retired or quit their jobs in PTI want that these MKR><John should be sacked without any chance of extension or mercy.

  95. Now it is heard Razdan wants two of his loyal Prinkya Tikoo who is highly incompetent and loot PTI and another Sumir Kaul to be appointed as Editor-in- Chief and Executive Editor by pleading for them. And poor Chairman seems to be inclined to favour without knowing their back ground .
    If these two persons become Editor-in-Chief and Executive Editor then it will spell disaster for PTI and ruin PTI and the institute which has been built by blood and sweat of thousands of employees for several decades under the illustrious people like N R Chandran , Lazrus and Unikrishnan and their predecessors will go to dogs.
    What these people know how PTI had been built by the efforts of Day and night of so hundreds of employees and these handful crooked persons are looting the PTI brazenly.
    Chairman and Board of Directors of the illustrious institute should be enlightened enough to save PTI from being again given in the hands of these scoundrels and ruin it instead of retrieving it from mess they will push it to worse situation.

  96. Most of what is written against MKR, the initials that has been continually burning the PTI wires since 1965, is true, if a little exaggerated here and there. 1965 was the year when this handsome, unspoilt and somewhat unsophisticated Kashmiri Pandit joined PTI as a journalist trainee! MKR is of course Maharaj Krishan Razdan, 72, going on 73.

    One must give the devil its due.

    1.MKR has been a tireless, live wire reporter. 2. He did well with all the beats given to him, especially the foreign office. 3. After becoming DY GM in 1989 on his return from New York assignment, he changed the way the news agency has been working. He enriched its service and made almost every journalist work. He led from the front and was always there during major news breaks and guided and shaped their coverage. This cannot be said of his predecessors. He deserved the post of editor in chief.

    Now the negative side:

    MKR is not a democrat, almost a despot and systematically eliminated those who did not agree with him on professional matters. He played one journalist against another. He bought the union and relied on its support to get extension after extension. He vitiated the democratic and free environment of PTI when journalists and bosses were all equal and they could say the worst things about the editor or the GM within their earshot and still remained unharmed. He employed ‘spies’ to carry tales to him and based on that tales he punished self respecting, honest, professional journalists. He got work from his colleagues by terrorising them, though on the face of it he was jovial and excelled in quick wit. Journalists were fear-driven and not inspired to work. He outstayed his worth and has now become an object of ridicule. After all he is 70 plus and he should remember how sacacstic he was about ‘oldies’ when he was claiming the PTI ladder.

    MKR got away with ‘murder’ violating all labour laws in the treatment of those who disagreed with him. Once before waiting for the final court verdict, he pulled PTI out of the government pension scheme of 1995 and returned FPS money to the employees without their asking for it. When Supreme court finally threw the case of private sector organisations on 1995 pension scheme, he asked the employees to return the money with interest! Many did. Here was a clear case when the employees could have easily dragged him to the court. But who has the strength and time to do this after 60. MKR was let off lightly. This was one instance. He harassed his ‘detractors’ in every conceivable manner.

    His saving grace is whenever anyone faced a medical crisis, he swung to action and moved heaven and earth to save a life, be it his friend or foe.

    MKR, remains a very interesting journalist. He should have quit PTI when people might have asked ‘why?’
    He is yet to leave when people are tired of asking ‘why not’? It’s a pity indeed.
    Though harassed and driven to leave PTI, I still wish MKR him well. RC Rajamani (Quit PTI in 2000 after 27 years of journalistic work)

  97. here is one more interesting story to be added to pti story. recently pti brought out a coffee table book titled “sixty years of pti” and those who have worked in pti and known the organization, the impression is that except and here i really would like to say that this fellow called razdan who through chamchagiri and foul mouth has brought out this book showing as though there was no one else except him who built this great institution. not one word of eminent journalists of the organization like k.s. ramachandran, N.R. Chandran,
    K.P. Unnikrishnan, Wilfred Lazarus. the most shameful act by this deceit, racketeer. hope pti board probes razdan’s carpet business in london.

    • Sri is right 110 per cent. Who remembers NRC or the other worthy gentlemen he mentions? The big manipulator got rid of KDR and Kundpur and Arun Kumar. Gave plush posting to HSR, and made piles of money in UK business.
      The rot continues unabated. Nepotism, corruption and very bad work atmosphere. I left the company years ago and went to collect some small dues a week ago. Here is what I saw

      I was stunned to see through the glass window the foul-mouthed old and fat woman ‘feminazi’ watching videos and playing candy krush (I know and the whole of pti knows she had never done a day’s work in her career and in the night shift in the 80s and 90s used to just eat and sleep and snore), another old fat man a bengali chap (new recruit – seems he is the head of Hr, what a pity!) is playing card games on his PC with his back turned to the door, the FC or Finance Chief checking Dalal Street quotes and placing orders (it was a week day – I don’t know what he does on other days), the Admin Officer, a bihari (from his slang) and the second in command of accounts (both new chaps who have never worked in a professional set up but must be drawing huge salaries) watching videos, jobs and real estate offers! Others were on the phone appearing to be busy chatting, facebooking and keeping loud music. MKR has turned the office into a real mess.

      The man at the gate told me this is how they spend time every day. I saw him bring tiffin boxes. I asked for whom and he said, for Mem’sab (my foot!) and netaji. MKR, do you know all this? Well, you don’t even come to the office for 3 hours, how will you know? What a legacy the new CEO will inherit. He should first order an enquiry into all the black deeds of MKR and his henchmen who have been plundering the company.

      I am not jealous of the new CEO. He has loads of work to remove all the garbage in human form – the fat woman, the fat man and the useless admin and accounts guys (uncooperative) – I had to wait 2 precious hours watching all this. A golden company turned to rubbish by MKR and his thieves who betrayed the Trust.

  98. the joke going around is in pti management and union are nathu singh and prem singh, one and the same thing. that is the relationship between razdan and the union. that is why one should not be surprised that the union protested when the pti board decided to replace razdan by somebody from outside.

  99. having worked for 29 years in pti before resigning, had seen razdan rise to the present post from being a reporter and having risen through sycophancy, he expected the same from those whom he promoted in the organization when he became its head. throughout his tenure he ensured that only sycophants and chamchas were promoted forcing many seniors to quit the organization. as head of one of the top news organizations, he ensured that only those who kowtowed his line remained. all those whom he deputed on foreign assignments had to offer as the joke went around “a bottle of black label scotch at the temple” and those who did not do so were ensured of not getting any more foreign trips.

  100. having spent 29 years in pti and seen razdan rise from a reporter to ceo and eic, and having risen to this level through sycophancy, he also expected similar attitude from all those whom he promoted and those who did not kow tow to him, he ensured that they quit pti as also all those who were his potential rivals. when he became ceo, he ensured only sycophants and chamchas surrounded him. there was a virtual unwritten rule in pti that whomsoever razdan sent on a foreign assignment with president, pm or any other minister, the correspondent had to make an offering as the joke went around “at the temple” which was a bottle of black label scotch. as head of pti, he created history being the only head of pti to be beaten within the office premises. even this he did not consider to be humiliation for he only humiliated others.

  101. quitting pti after 29 years one saw at close quarters how razdan ensured all those who were his possible rivals were forced to quit the organization and thus it was controlled by him with people who were totally obliged to him or as they say in hindi who thrived on “chamchagiri” and “tale carrying of other colleagues” since he believed in divide and rule policy. he was a person who loved sycophancy and whosoever was sent on a foreign trip by razdan had to as a joke went around in the office “have you made your offerings to the god to ensure your next foreign trip,” and what was it – nothing less than a bottle of black label scotch. being the head of the institution, he had the great knack of humiliating his staff members immaterial of which post they held – bureau chief, editor or executive editor – in front of the entire staff.
    incidentally, razdan has the unique distinction of being the only head of pti to be beaten within the office premises.

  102. Who bothers what happens in PTI as long as government money is not involved? Almost all of the main stream media is discredited,most of the news originating from PTI is tainted so much so,public cares 2 hoots what these jokers purvey.Social media especially of DrSwamy’s has lot more credibility than these jokers combined.

  103. There is only one Guy after ageless creature Razdan’s exit, if possible for Management to find out . Guy is self proclaimed union neta MohanShyam Yadav who could be Editor in Chief. Because PTI’s existing editors would love this illiterate Netaji.
    This article should be devoted to Editor-in -Chief post search. There are four editors, one Executive Editor already there for subbing correspondents’copies.

  104. It has clearly appeared that Team Pgurus has written this piece to please a few person (s) of existing nexus that literally ruined cream of PTI’s journalists in last 30 years. If u have courage to write a few things honestly , Pgurus should explore a flourishing nexus between one man management and his beloved Federation Unionist who kept him (CeO cun EiC)
    ageless creature on media land. Om shant Om.

    • Yes ,that has been very correctly pointed out. The CEO exist because of the Federation office bearers who have got extensions for several years as reward for their loyal work to ensure the CEO’s continuance for eleven more years after his superannuation in 2005.
      When ever the Board decided to replace the CEO he instigated these loyal office bearers to draft a threatening letter to black mail the Board that they would launch agitation if an outsider was inducted and CEO used it as a weapon to black mail the Board shield himself and has continued. In return these office bearers who should have retired – one in in 2012, one in 2013 and one in 2015 have been rewarded with extensions and promotions without doing any work for last 26 years. The writer should have done some more research to before writing this story so that the entire game plan of the CEO and his three loyal would have been come to light. He should have also probed why 90 % of Journalists in the agency are in Contract and are the mercy of CEO and how they are exploited by the office bearer to collect advertisement for union souvenir which is not circulated and the money collected is only used personal purpose and the members of the unions are not aware of the collection parked in Canara Bank and operated by two loyal of the office bearer. Like wise a huge levy running into several lakhs collected from the staff after the Majithia wage scale was recommended has not been made public. All these needs to be probed and also audited by Income tax department and Registrar of Unions to unravel the mystery.The writer should have put out a holistic story for the public to know the true activities. None dare to open his or her mouth in fear of harassment in the form of transfer and torment and humiliation by the office bearers and their minions.
      In 2002 a group who got elected by the disenchanted members were so badly treated by the ousted people and tortured by the management that several had to quit and several had to surrender and bow before the office bearers for their survival.
      And the so called enlightened media of Delhi never bothered to take up the cause of these hapless people.
      But congrats Tirthankar for at least writing about the organization which is highly patronized by government as a not for profit agency but truly if some one ask any information about the organization , the management reject it saying it is a private body whereas when it comes to get concessions , benefits, waiver of penalty, the management plead that it is not for profit organization serving public cause.But strangely no public has ever been served by it.
      The more one probed more skeleton would tumble from the cupboard of the agency

  105. I do not see why it has to be a journalist who must be the ceo of the pti to be running it. It could be run by a guy who has a good track record of having run a big company responsibly and successfully in the world of free market. Get Govt companies off taxpayers’ back.

  106. it pains one as an ex-employee of this great instittuion that it has descended to this farcical level, thanks to the obduracy of Mr.Razadan who has had a covetable career in the organization for close to five decades! It is a sham that its clone UNI has had to fold up tents in the post-liberalization phase of the Indian economy though PTI has managed to survive and thrive with the uncanny Mr.Razdan on top of the organization since 1995 uninterruptedly till he was asked to leave. No professional organization let alone a news agency could remain complacent but PTI remained so because of Mr.Razadan who saw that most of the seniors had to leave the organisation under one reason or another not anyway relalted to their professional competence and excellence. He built an empire of sycophants who constantly dinned into his ears that he is irreplaceable as if the world will come crashing if he were to leave! In such a makebelieve universe, truth and probity were the causalty and turnooats and time-servers had a field day! I am sure the successor to Mr Razdan will have a defined spell so that he has little appetite to spread his tentacles and stay put for a protracted phase, much to the consternation of extant employees and to the long-term damage of the organisation.

    • Seems a big fan of CEO who has no idea inside of PTI. He should better do some research before writing such bull shit .
