It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

Mahatma Gandhi (Young India, 18 June 1925, p211)

CM pressuring Centre for bauxite clearances: Cong

Dec 08 2015, Visakhapatnam

The state government wrote to the Centre four times this year seeking environment clearances for bauxite mining in the Visakha Agency areas, charged AP Congress Committee (PCC) president N Raghuveera Reddy while releasing a 'fact sheet' on the bauxite mining issue here on Monday .

According to the PCC chief, CM Chandrababu Naidu wrote letters on February 10, February 23, July 21 and August 6 to the centre. He criticized the white paper on bauxite recently released by the state government and said it was nothing but a fake document.

“The CM has no guts to reveal the facts. He has been changing his statements regularly to cover his corrupt practices. Naidu had adopted the Araku area only to excavate the bauxite reserves and for this he has been colluding with private companies,“ Reddy alleged.

“The CM has no time to write to Union government and demand special status for the state or seek aid for the drought-hit mandals.But he found time to send four letters to the centre to seek environment clearances for bauxite mining,“ Reddy said.

He challenged Naidu to reveal the minutes of the cabinet meeting in which the GO 97 was allegedly kept in abeyance.

Former speaker of the AP Assembly Nadendla Manohar said chief minister Naidu has been violating the constitutional rights of the tribals.
