Amritsar, October 22,2014 :Tarun Chugh, the National Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party has urged Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to ask chief parliamentary secretary Avinash Chander to resign from his post since his name has cropped up in the infamous case related to dismissed Punjab Police DSP and druglord Jagdish Bhola.

Chugh said that BJP was committed in its fight against drugs in Punjab and as such feels that Avinash Chander should have resigned on his own by now. If he comes clean after the probe, he can again join the government as a CPS.

The continuation of Avinash Chander, as a CPS in the SAD-BJP government is definitely having an impact on the image of the alliance government and raises doubts about the government's intention to act,he added

Mr Chugh further said that when the ED has summoned the CPS, it can be easily construed that the ED sleuths might have some basic evidence against him. It does not bestow a CPS to appear before the ED time and again for his links with people involved in drug trade especially when the government claims to be fighting a war against drugs.

The BJP has been consistent in its stand against the trade of drugs in Punjab as the party believes that the supply and sale of drugs in the state has dealt a severe blow not only to the youth involved and their families, but also to the economic and culture of the state. The state is getting a bad name in rest of India and across the world.

It would do no harm to the alliance if Avinash Chander is asked to go. Rather, it would strengthen people's belief and confidence in the government as it would send a strong message that the government has will to act against anybody, whosoever he or she may be.

There is no doubt that the state government has fought a war against drugs at all levels and hundreds of people involved in the drug trade have been arrested. The police have made huge seizures. Under such circumstances, if the CM asks Avinash Chander to quit, that would add to the credit of the government.

He referred Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has given a clear indication that high moral standards should be maintained by the elected representatives and people sitting on constitutional posts. As such Avinash Chander needs to be asked to put in his papers.

BJP had hailed the stand of Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal when he had asked Punjab cabinet minister Sarwan Singh Phillaur to quit when the name of his son Damanvir Singh Phillaur had cropped up in the same case.....

Ottawa Civic Hospital confirmed two people have been taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, one with a gunshot wound.


Parliament Hill came under attack today after a man with a rifle shot a soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa, before seizing a car and driving to the doors of Parliament Hill's Centre Block nearby.

MPs and other witnesses reported several shots fired inside Parliament, and a gunman has been confirmed dead inside the building, shot by the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms, according to MPs' eyewitness accounts.

The soldier's condition is not known as this time.

The prime minister was on the Hill at the time of the shooting, but was safely take away. It's believed one suspect is still at large.

Gunman killed at Parliament Hill, other suspects sought

A gunman has been shot and killed inside Parliament Hill’s Centre Block and police are swarming over downtown Ottawa hunting for other possible suspects after several shootings rocked Ottawa on Wednesday morning — including one at the War Memorial that wounded a soldier and another near the Rideau Centre mall.

The War Memorial shooting occurred just before 10 a.m., and the shooter then apparently drove to the gates of Parliament Hill and ran inside the buildings. A witness also reported that another man headed east, potentially in the direction of the Rideau Centre.

Witnesses said 30 to 50 shots were fired inside the Centre Block.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the leaders of the other political parties are all believed to be safe. The prime minister was taken away from Parliament to a secure place, officials said. The Hill was immediately locked down.

The schools and the U.S. Embassy, which is near Parliament Hill, were also locked down.

The caucuses for the Conservative and Liberal and NDP were holding their regular Wednesday meetings when the incident at the Hill happened.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched this ambitious scheme of financial inclusion on August 28. The Jan Dhan Yojana scheme is to provide and have bank account by every Indian citizen.

Credit facility can be extended in the existing account if it is being operated satisfactorily” disclosed Isha Kalia.
