had hit its peak this summer "We are currently dealing with cases of 22 ships There are 97 Indians aboard these vessels" the diplomat said Though the exact number of crew members belonging to other nationalities is not available with the Indian consulate the mission said there are sailors from Sri Lanka the Philippines Myanmar and Pakistan also on these ships "Outstanding salary non-availability of food fresh water fuel harsh living conditions and no sign-off after the contract period are the major concerns voiced by the sailors" the mission said in reply to questions by the paper Representational image Reuters Majority of the sailors have complained about not being paid by their employers for several months They have also sought to sign off and fly home after receiving payment of their pending dues the paper said The consulate said it had been contacting the owners and agents for settlement of the dues provision of food water and fuel request for sign off it added The mission has helped repatriate 36 sailors from six ships — MV Gulf Pearl MV Ayah Enjaz 2 MV Salem MVRock and Al Hamad 1 — in the past few weeks the daily said In some cases the Consulate has been providing food water and even fuel and recharge of their mobile phones it added Vipul said the mission had been taking up the issues of the stranded sailors case by case with the relevant authorities "We alone cannot solve their problems especially related to their pending salaries" he explained He also urged Indian seafarers to conduct proper checks on the credibility and financial status of shipping companies before joining them to avoid such situations Girish Pant an Indian social worker who has been closely working with the consulate in aiding the stranded sailors said the growing number of such cases is a big concern that authorities need to address immediately "I would like to request authorities to take strict action against such companies’ owners and agents Most of them are not showing any humanitarian consideration to these sailors who have been stuck without salaries food and water "The situation on some of these ships is really pathetic Without fuel to operate the generator they are suffering a lot in this scorching summer" he was quoted as saying by the Gulf paper Sailors from a couple of vessels have also been stranded in UAE waters following fire accidents on their ships Vipul said the consulate facilitated the repatriation of 13 such crew members of MSV Al Hamd1 which was gutted in a fire on 22 April near Sharjah port just in time for Eid Al Fitr "The ship had caught fire in Sharjah somewhere near the port a day or two before the crew were to dock The case was first brought to our notice through India Club Dubai about two weeks back" he said The crew was all from Kutch Gujarat The owner also belonged to Gujarat Vipul said the mission contacted the state government to put pressure on the owner of the vessel "Finally he contributed a portion of the ticket fare for sending them back home We funded the rest of the amount and facilitated their journey by issuing emergency (exit) certificates" He said the consulate was also following up on five other Indian sailors who survived the blast in MT Rojean which killed one sailor on 13 May The death of J Jayalalithaa has created a flux in Tamil Nadu politics where potential political and ideological realignments are in the works Some of these can have long-term implications not only for Tamil Nadu but also for the Union of Indian itself BJP is playing the role of deal-maker between the two AIADMK factions Megastar Rajnikanth’s name did the rounds recently about him joining BJP – a rumour that was squashed by the star himself At the same time the closeness of the BJP and AIADMK has thrown the Dravidian political space to the DMK like never before which under the leadership of MK Stalin has been upping the ante on Centre’s renewed Hindi imposition policies Next week large sections of the non-BJP Opposition especially the various state-based political forces as well as the Congress and the Left will converge in Chennai on the occasion of the elder Tamil statesman and DMK supremo M Karunanidhi’s 94th birthday Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and Tamil Nadu chief minister E Palaniswami PTI The political significance of this congregation cannot be underestimated While this happens the government of Tamil Nadu has come under serious criticism for bowing to the Centre something that has been a point of utter shame in Tamil Nadu politics for decades Since the transfer of power from British hands to select native hands in 1947 the Union government has systematically sought to destroy the autonomous powers and rights of States Delhi has been largely successful in this in most places but it has always faced stiff opposition in Tamil Nadu For this is not a walkover state and Tamilians are not a walkover people Delhi’s infringement on any rights of the Government of Tamil Nadu and hence of the Tamil Nadu people have typically met with stiff resistance in political circles and among the public at large Ever since the Congress was booted out of power in Tamil Nadu in 1967 no Delhi-headquartered party has ever been able to wield any kind of central position in the Tamil political narrative This continues to be true to this day In terms of raising the first alarm on most issues of Delhi steamrolling state rights Tamil Nadu has been the leader for decades and it marks the sophisticated understanding of the nature of the Indian Union and the relationship of its constituent ethnolinguistic nationalities to the Union It has often marked the red line that Delhi dare not cross It is in this context that one has to keep in mind when looking at the furore that has erupted in Tamil Nadu about Union cabinet minister Venkaiah Naidu’s recent interference in Tamil Nadu state government’s internal affairs Like an imperious sultan who has come down to a conquered area to take stock of activities Naidu made a statement while talking about ongoing projects in Tamil Nadu where the Union government has some money at stake He
