EM warns teachers with bad academic results
As many as 3907 centres established for 2, 25,786 students appearing in 5th class

Chandigarh February 7, 2016: The Punjab government has taken the vital decision to initiate the examination for the Primary and Middle standards to give a boost to the academic standards of the state government schools. The different sections of the society were also consulted while taking this most important decision in the larger interests of the students. This was stated here today by the Education Minister Dr. Daljeet Singh Cheema.
Dr. Cheema said that it has been conveyed to the government by the general public, the representatives of almost all the political parties and also the educational experts to re-introduce the examination system for these classes to ensure a better academic scenario in the government schools. A resolution to this effect was also unanimously passed in the Punjab Vidhan Sabha which was later forwarded to the Government of India. Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal had also written to the Prime Minister Mr. Narender Modi urging him to re-introduce the examination process. The Punjab government was firm on the decision and all the formalities have been completed in this regard, said Dr. Cheema.
Giving further details, Dr. Cheema said that about 2, 25,786 students were enrolled in the 13,053 primary schools and to cater to the examination needs of these students as many as 3907 examination centres have been set up in the state. Similarly 2347 examination centres have been established for about 2,33,013 students enrolled in 8th class of about 6286 of Middle, High and Senior Secondary schools in the state.
The Minister also said that the government has kept it in mind while setting up the centres especially for the students of the Primary classes that the centres are located near the schools. The existing staff and basic infrastructure in the Middle, High and Higher Secondary Schools have been taken into consideration while setting up of the examination centres. He also said that there would be table marking by the Primary School teachers primarily to ensure absolute transparency in the entire examination process.
He further said that this endeavor of the Education Department was being widely endorsed by the academicians. At the same time he warned those teachers who were instrumental in constantly bringing bad name to the department by producing bad results. He said that such teachers would not be allowed to play with the future of the students and the government would take strict action against such teachers.
Clarifying further, Dr. Cheema said that the department has taken adequate measures to check the menace of copying including the re-initiating the examination process and bringing complete transparency in the academic standards of the government schools. He also said that the government was not considering the merger of primary and secondary cadres. He made a fervent appeal to the teaching fraternity to work with commitment and dedication so as to ensure better results in the ensuing academic sessions.

Chandigarh, February 07, 2016 : A section of prominent thinkers, social activist and scholars of Punjab advocated treating drug addicts and drug users as patients and victims rather than criminals and adopt an integrated approach and longtime multi-pronged strategy check the drug addiction.
The problem (drug menace) could not be solved by the police or with stringent laws like NDPS Act because of a nexus of various forces promoting the sale of and distribution of drugs as a source of earning easy money while taking advantage of ban on simple drugs like Bhukki and opium etc, they feel.
The thinkers were speaking at a National Seminar on drug menace held at Bhakna Bhawan, here today.
Patiala MP, Dr. Dharamveer Gandhi presided over the seminar, while Sardara Singh Johal, Chancellor Central University, Bathinda, was the main speaker.
Dr Dharamveer Gandhi said that the need of the hour is to break the criminal-mafia-politics nexus by radically altering NDPS Act which tends to promote smuggling and its promotion by wholesale ban on drugs . He also advocated legalisation of certain common mans recreational drugs like bhukki,bhang etc. He added that the use of the dangerous and chemical started only when the Bhukki and post were banned. He explained how the use of drugs promoted summing up his views as " Ban, Smuggle and Promote syndrome."
Sardara Singh Johal, Chancellor Central University Bathinda, said that historical evidence pointed that banning only leads to smuggling and expansion of drugs in a society. He advocated setting up rural industries and proper "evening management" to wean away youth from drugs.
Pr Chaman Lal, Retired Professor JNU, highlighted the international dimension of Drug policy stressing that stringent drug laws were used by USA to destabilise revolutionary regimes in South America by promoting drug cartels who thrived on smuggling due to bans. He called upon broad based social mobilisation to combat the problem.
Iqbal Singh Lalpura, called drug smugglers as "sleeper cells and agents of ISI" to destabilize India.
Dr Jagjeet Cheema, former Joint Director Health, conducted the stage during the seminar.

Chandigarh, February 7, 2016:
The cash trapped Punjab government whereas failed to pay salaries to its employees, has doled out about Rs 6 crore annually by giving minister ranks to its ‘blue eyed’ politicians. Criticizing the decisions of the SAD, Suchha Singh Chottepur, Convener Aam Admi Party (AAP) said that state which is overburdened by an ‘army’ of about three dozen such politicians, another crown of ‘minister rank’ was laid on politically defeated SAD leader Sewa Singh Sekhwan, recently.
Be it compensation to farmers for their damaged crop, salaries to its employees or even dues to the retiring employees, the government has failed to fulfill its responsibilities due to ‘financial crunch”. He questions, from where money comes to shower on such self-styled ministers, who have virtually doing nothing to do?
“It seems that SAD has taken a clue from BJP, its junior alliance, which has already appointed politically defeated leaders Arun Jaitley and Smriti Irani as cabinet ministers in union government”, Chottepur said.

Chandigarh, February 7, 2016: The former Punjab Congress President Partap Singh Bajwa alleged big scam in the signing of the power purchase agreements at the time of setting up of the power plants in the state which, he said, were at the cost of thermal plants in the public sector. He cited the closure of all units of Lehra Mohabbat thermal plants to purchase costly power from the plants in the private sector.
He pointed out that the power produced by the public sector thermal plants was cheaper but the Punjab power corporation was bound to purchase specified quantity of power from the private sector plants as per the power purchase agreements even by shutting down its own plants where the demand was less.
He accused Deputy Chief Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal of playing havoc with the power sector in the state by making state power utility to pay Rs 2700 crore every year to private thermal plants in the state even without purchasing a single unit. Public sector thermal plants were being run below capacity to purchase power from these private plants.
“This is just shocking that the state government is paying huge cost to fulfill the ‘dream’ of Sukhbir Singh Badal to make Punjab power surplus. As per the agreement with the private thermal plants that have come up in the state, the power corporation is supposed to purchase power even by keeping its own plants idle or pay compensation. This is a big fraud with the people in the name of making Punjab power surplus”, he asserted.
He questioned the very motive of the state government undertaking entering into such agreement at the behest of the Deputy Chief Minister who had been instrumental in this private sector investment. He demanded that that all the power purchase agreements signed with these companies along with the generation capacity of the public sector plants along with per unit cost of generation must be made public.
He alleged here was the biggest scam of this government going by the fact that the generation in public sector plants would be down to about 9500 million units in 2015-16 as compared to 16500 million units in 2012-13. This reduction was due to power purchase from these private plants.
He said none would disagree that progress was not possible without adequate availability of power but the same could not be done by bleeding the public sector units as this burden would have to borne by the people ultimately.
Bajwa called for probe by an independent agency into this scam while bringing out the facts before the people regarding functioning of the power sector and private thermal plants in the state and the amount disbursed to private plants by the government while keeping the capacity of the state run plants idle. He said It should also be explained as to why more plants had not been set up in the public sector.

An engaging session on ‘Technology Business – Latest Trends and where it’s headed’ had an engaging discussion among panellists which included Vikas Ahuja, Sameer Goel, Munish Jauhar, Atul Gupta, and the session was moderated by Preeti Parasher. The panelists discussed about how technology has revolutionized the way we live and how it is ever evolving. The trends in the IT space like intelligent enterprise, the internet of things and new innovations in technology were brought to the fore and their impact in our day to day life was highlighted. The distinguished panel shared insights into how innovation drives technology.

There were two book launches on the second day of the fest. PALF 2016 hosted a session on Literature for Public Use with its good news partner GNBC, Good News Broadcasting Community. The session was moderated by Dr. Shilpa Suri, Managing Partner- SNM IAS Academy and Dr. Mahek Singh, Editor- GNBC with the panelists being Ananya Gautam IG- Intelligence, Punjab Police and Radhika Serai, Founding Director of PALF and CEO, Rumour Books India.

Asks all agencies to implement these decisions in fast track mode
Our mushroom growers are capable of scripting another success story in heralding mushroom revolution in state
Chandigarh, February 7, 2016: In a bid to promote mushroom cultivation across the state in a big way, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today asked the Planning department to include the scheme of mushroom cultivation in the next annual plan to provide budgetary support for its development.
A decision to this effect was taken by Mr. Badal on the recommendations of eminent mushroom cultivators to include this scheme in the state annual plan 2016-17, in view of high medicinal and nutritional value of mushroom besides being environment friendly. The mushroom cultivation would go a long way in giving impetus to the farm diversification on one hand besides enhancing the profitability of the farmers enormously on the other.
The Chief Minister also gave a go ahead to the proposal to prepare publicity material to highlight the nutritional and medicinal value of mushrooms to augment its consumption level as well as promoting the concept of farm diversification. The Chief Minister was also of the view that an advertisement campaign should be launched to create awareness amongst the people regarding its nutritional and medicinal value. Mr. Badal hoped that the success stories of renowned mushroom growers from the state would prove to be a milestone in motivating the young farmers to adopt mushroom cultivation as an allied agricultural activity to further improve their economic position besides making enormous contribution towards state agriculture growth.
Mr. Badal also asked the Additional Chief Secretary (Development) and Financial Commissioner Cooperation to take up the issue, of advancing loans to the mushroom growers at the prevailing rate of interest applicable on agricultural loans, with the NABARD and state level bankers’ committee, since mushroom cultivation was also an agricultural activity. The Chief Minister also directed the Financial Commissioner Cooperation and Managing Director Markfed for ensuring to fix Minimum Support Price (MSP) of mushroom at Rs.70 per kg besides providing marketing support to the mushrooms growers through Markfed.
The Chief Minister also asked the Principal Secretary Housing and Urban Development to issue necessary instructions to dispense with the practice of issuing land use change certificate to the mushroom growers as mushroom cultivation was an agriculture activity and therefore it was redundant in this case.
Likewise, the Chief Minister also asked the Secretary Power and Chairman PSPCL to ensure 24-hour uninterrupted power supply at Agriculture Power (AP) Tariff on the pattern of AP High Density farming. He also ordered that any mushroom grower who was interested in having direct hotline, he could get it installed at his own expense. Activities like composting, spawning and production would also be included in the mushroom cultivation for availing this benefit, said Mr. Badal.
It was also decided to give subsidy on the compost to enhance the profitability of mushroom growers. As per the decision, under first phase 1000 mushroom cultivators would be covered and given 40% subsidy with a cap of minimum 200 bags and maximum 1200 bags (10 kg compost per bag). It was estimated that expenditure to the tune of Rs.4 crore would be meted out from the plan schemes of RKVY, Mandi Board and Rural Development Fund. The Chief Minister asked both the Additional Chief Secretary (Development) and Director Horticulture to work out modalities in this regard.
The Chief Minister also directed the Additional Chief Secretary (Development) to prepare a revised proposal to set up a Centre of Excellence in Mushroom cultivation at Punjab Agriculture University (PAU), Ludhiana. The upcoming centre would be equipped with the state-of-the-art laboratory to undertake research in hi-tech compost, casing and spawning. Mr. Badal desired that the requisite equipment of latest technology should be installed at the Centre and these should be manufactured locally for supplying to the mushroom growers at affordable rates, at the later stage. He also asked the Vice Chancellor PAU to start short term courses of three months on quality production of mushrooms to enhance the profitability of the mushroom cultivators in the state.
The Chief Minister also gave approval to send a joint delegation of mushroom growers, experts from PAU and officers of state horticulture department to China and Netherland to acquire latest technical know-how regarding quality production and to bring the best quality of spawn canning to the state.
Conceding another demand of the mushroom growers, Mr. Badal also directed the Chairman Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) to immediately initiate action to exclude the activity of compost and cultivation of mushroom from its ambit, being an agricultural activity.
The Chief Minister asked all the agencies involved to boost the development of mushroom in the state to implement these decisions at the earliest so that the tremendous potential of mushroom growers could be exploited to full extent in heralding another revolution in terms of mushroom cultivation.
The Chief Minister said that with the unbounded capacities and capabilities our mushroom growers can script another success story in the state agrarian economy.

Ferozepur, February 7, 2016: Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) wrestler Dalip Singh Rana popularly known by his ring name The Great Khali, is going to open five “Wrestling Schools” in Punjab while one is already working in Jalandhar where the boys are being trained across India.
In all these academies, the poor youths will be imparted free wrestling training to keep away the students from the sixth river of drugs flowing, in the Punjab state.
These views were expressed with the media persons by Khali on his visit to this border town at PWD Rest House.
International Wrestler Dalip Singh (The Great Khali) said, “In all five wrestler academies will be opened in the Punjab State including one in Ferozepur. One is already working at Jalandhar wherein both boys and girls are getting training for different districts.”
Khali shared that youths addict to drugs only when they are unemployed.
“He is wedded to Punjab and opening the wrestlers academies in the state to keep the youths away from drugs”, Khali added.
He said “There is a big craze among the young generation and they want to become professional wrestlers. But in the absence of proper training in the country and lack of finance they fail to live their dreams. So I have decided to give their dreams a platform. The boys across India will be trained over there in Punjab itself and wrestling competitions will be organised in the big cities.
He further said, four youths are participating in WWE Championship after getting training from his academy.
Talking about the pious heritage of the state, Khali said, it is our duty to maintain it.
Khali informed that a wrestling has been arranged at Ludhina Academy on March 5, 2016 in which wrestlers from various countries are participating.
With regard to joining the politics, he said, he is not attached with any political party despite having received offers from certain parties.
Making it crystal clear, Khali said, one can serve the country even without joining the politics.
Khali was accompanied by local Congress MLA Parminder Singh Pinki, who making an appeal to the government said, the government should provide a suitable land for opening of wrestlers’ academy in this border town so that maximum youths could be free from drugs by joining the academy.

Chandigarh, February 7, 2016: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh today said that the Bhartiya Janata Party cannot wriggle out of the mess it has created in Punjab in alliance with the Shiromani Akali Dal by simply walking out at the eleventh hour after having enjoyed the pelf and power for last nine years.

Capt Amarinder also demanded a white paper on the state of economy in Punjab.

Reacting to the reports of the BJP’s intentions to part ways with the Akalis, the PCC president said, although it was their internal affair whether to continue with the alliance or not, one thing the party cannot escape is the onus and responsibility for being partners in the sins of omission and commission of this government during last nine years.

“If the BJP thinks that by walking out of the alliance at the eleventh hour, people of Punjab can forgive it, the party is badly mistaken”, he said, while pointing out, at no point of time did the party raise any objection to the rampant loot the Akalis resorted to. He said, rather they became the equal partners in everything.

“It is not that the party has woken up to some moral consciousness, but the harsh realisation that it cannot win even a single seat in alliance with the Akalis and that is the reason why the party wants to walk out now”, the former Chief Minister said, adding, whether the BJP remains with the Akalis or walks out both the parties are destined to be doomed in 2017.

Referring to Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal’s statement claiming that the state’s financial position was not as bad as it was said to be, Capt Amarinder asked him to better bring a white paper on the state of economy in Punjab. He pointed out, the state debt has already crossed 1.25 lakh crores and by the time the Akalis are thrown out, the debt would already have crossed Rs 1.4 lakh crores.

“So much so the state has to take loans to service its debts”, he said, while pointing out, how the Akalis have mortgaged the jails and old age homes to get further loans for survival. “And if Sukhbir still believes that the state of economy is not bad and this was being deliberately done to malign the government’s image he should better bring out a white paper and bring out the truth before the public”, he suggested.....

Hindus seek Diwali holiday in New Jersey’s Parsippany-Troy Hills School District

Nevada (USA), February 7, 2016: Hindus are urging Parsippany-Troy Hills Township School District (PTHSD) in New Jersey to include Diwali, the most popular Hindu holy day, as a schools holiday in their 2016-2017 calendar and beyond.

The 2015-2016 Calendar of PTHSD, whose “mission” includes "to develop a feeling of self-worth and confidence", showed schools were closed for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, while district was closed for Good Friday.

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that it was not fair with Hindu pupils and their families as they had to attend school on their most popular festival.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, indicated that this unfairness did not send a good signal to the impressionable minds of schoolchildren who would be the leaders of tomorrow. Holidays of all major religions should be honored and no one should be penalized for practicing their religion. Moreover, it was important to meet the religious and spiritual needs of these students, Zed added

Rajan Zed stressed that since it was important for Hindu families to celebrate Diwali day together at home with their children, we did not want our children to be deprived of any privileges at the school because of thus resulting absences on this day. Closing schools on Diwali would ensure that and it would be a step in the positive direction.

Zed noted that awareness about other religions thus created by such holidays like Diwali would make the PTHSD pupils well-nurtured, well-balanced, and enlightened citizens of tomorrow.

PTHSD needed to develop some sensitivity to diversity in the changing demographics and grant holidays on Diwali and major festivals of other religions so the students did not have to miss school to celebrate their sacred days. PTHSD should awake and understand that we live in 2016 now, Rajan Zed stated.

Zed further says that Hinduism is rich in festivals and religious festivals are very dear and sacred to Hindus. Diwali, the festival of lights, aims at dispelling the darkness and lighting up the lives and symbolizes the victory of good over evil. Besides Hindus, Sikhs and Jains and some Buddhists also celebrate Diwali. Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. There are about three million Hindus in USA.

PTHSD, which reportedly has reportedly substantial number of Hindu students, serves about 7250 students in 14 schools, besides an adult education center, in a middle and upper-middle income “ethnically, culturally and linguistically diverse” community. Parsippany is 28 miles west of New York City. Dr. LeRoy Seitz is Interim Superintendent, while Frank Neglia is President of its Board of Education.

New Delhi/Chandigarh February 7, 2016: The Punjab government today urged the central government to provide the State a financial package worth ₹ 15,000 crores in the forthcoming Union Budget including a financial aid of Rs. 100 Crore to check the cancer penetration in the Malwa belt of the state. The sufficient budgetary allocation for the payment CST compensation during 2016-17 was also requested. These demands were raised by the Finance Minister Punjab Mr. Parminder Singh Dhindsa, accompanied by the Additional Chief Secretary Finance, Mr. D.P. Reddy, during the pre budget consultation meeting of the Finance Ministers of the states with the Union Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley in New Delhi.

Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Dhindsa said that Punjab has played a pivotal role in ensuring food security in the country and provided life line in the form of food grains to fellow countrymen. The state’s natural and environmental resources have not only been over exploited but also have been polluted beyond permissible limits. It is not that pollution and over utilization of environmental resources has adversely affected the human lives; the degraded environmental resources particularly quality of soil and water have also adversely affected the land productivity and hence the farming community and landless workers have been facing high degree of economic distress resulting in suicides by farmers.

He said that the state has not only been facing agrarian crisis but its industrial economy is equally in the grip of crisis mainly due to tax holidays given by the central government to the neighbouring hill states. The tax concessions given to neighbouring states have resulted in closure and flight of 274 industrial units involving investment of ₹ 3,675 crore to tax favoured states. The combined slow growth of both productive sectors of the economy poses another serious problem of stagnation of jobs for the youth.

Mr. Dhindsa said that Punjab earlier was declared as a fit case along with Kerala and West Bengal for debt relief. It was resolved that the matter of debt relief would be taken care of by the Fourteenth Finance Commission. The Commission, however, overlooked the most deserving case of the state for debt relief. The reason cited by the Commission in the form of power subsidy to agriculture sector loses its justification in the light of recent statement of the Hon’ble Prime Minister that why subsidy to agriculture should not treated as incentives or stimulus as in the case of industry.

So, on basis of these and a few other factors Punjab has requested to the Hon’ble Finance Minister to consider a Special Financial Package to the State worth ₹ 15,000 crores in the forthcoming Union Budget. He also emphasized upon the need to instantaneously arrest the increasing menace of cancer in the state and added that Immediate financial aid of Rs 100 crore was required to set up state of art oncology centers and up-gradation of existing departments in Medical colleges, said Mr. Dhindsa.

The Finance Minister also sought the waiver of the reimbursement of Rs. 298 crore for deployment of Para-Military forces in the State. During the discussions, Mr. Dhindsa also said that State Government should be allowed to raise market borrowings as per their fund flow requirements within the overall Fiscal Deficit limit and there should be no quarterly limits, he urged. The state should be given approval in one go or biannually, said Mr. Dhindsa. The Finance Minister also requested that sufficient budgetary allocation be kept for payment CST compensation during 2016-17.

Referring to the recommended raising of the ceiling of Professional Tax from 2,500 to 12,000 per annum by Fourteenth Finance Commission, the Minister expressed that the limit should be uniform for all states and also supported appropriate constitutional amendment as recommended by FFC. He also urged the GoI to expedite the issues relating to the interest free loans to the small and marginal farmers for crop production and an interest rate of 6% for investment credit and procurement of maize for central pool at MSP.

In view of the high cost of construction, the Minister expressed concern over the restrictions imposed by the RBI on the amount of Housing loans up to 30 lakh only for construction of house and 1 lakh for enhancement/alteration/repair of house. He said that the limit requires to be enhanced to 50 lakh for new construction and 10 lakh for repair, respectively....

Chandigarh, February 7, 2016: The Mission Swachh Punjab made a giant leap when 1015 Gram Panchayats across the state declared themselves open defecation free. With a sum of Rs. 1200 Crore, this program was launched with a vision to make Punjab open defection free and provide latrines to all poor people in the villages.
Disclosing this, a spokesman of the Punjab Government said that while the primary focus of the program is to bring in behavioral change to prevent open defecation, 8 lakh individual households latrines will also be constructed during the process. All rural households without latrines are being encouraged to construct toilets of their own choice and an incentive of Rs 15000/- per toilet is being provided to the households. As on today work has been going on in more than 3000 villages simultaneously.
He said that this program stands out from earlier efforts in two significant ways. Firstly, though the program envisage the construction of 8 lakh toilets, yet, primary focus of the the program is to change the behavioral of the people and create demand for latrines and safe sanitation. Earlier, in a rapid survey done by the world bank just before the launch of the project indicated that only 54% of those who have toilets use these regularly. Secondly, contractors have been eliminated from the toilet construction; now the individuals , on their own, are constructing the toilets of their own choice. and an incentive of Rs. 15000 is being credited to their bank account directly.
He said that in the last six months, 36000 households have been provided with the latrines of their choice and 1015 Gram panchayat have declared themselves open defection free. Meaning thereby, that no household is without latrine in these 1015 villages and nobody defecates in open in these villages. The program has motivated the people to such an extent that these villages have formed Nigran committees which goes around the villages every morning to ensure that nobody is going for open defecation.
He stated that the department aims to provide 5 lac latrines by the end of this year. With this, It is estimated that approximately 6000 villages shall be made open defecation free by the end of the year.The DWSS has also embarked upon a ambitious plan of providing free of cost water supply connection in all the houses in the village .The cost connection shall also be borne by the department. So all the house hold shall have access to safe drinking water supply and safe sanitation servicesÍ He said that the department of water supply & sanitation has mobilized 1000 motivators, 200 master motivators and departmental staff to implement this programme in all the villages of state. The motivators are using Community Lead Total Sanitation methodology to trigger the rural communities.
