Chandigarh, July 24: Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will visit Amritsar, his hometown, on Saturday, July 26. Singh will pay obeisance at the Golden Temple on Sunday morning and attend a private function in the city on the same day.
The former prime minister will arrive here on Saturday evening and will head for Circuit House. After staying there for the night, he will visit the Golden Temple the next morning and attend the private function before returning to Delhi the same day.
A team of the Special Protection Group and officials of the city police and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) held a meeting on Thursday to discuss the arrangements for the visit.
The former prime minister had last visited Amritsar in January 2012. Since Manmohan will visit the Golden Temple on Sunday, when the Shiromani Akali Dal will also organise a Panthic convention on the issue of a separate gurdwara committee for Haryana, the Amritsar police are on their toes while making arrangements for these.
Police commissioner Jatinder Singh Aulakh organised a marathon meeting with his officers on Thursday and later visited the Golden Temple. He visited the Manji Sahib Hall where the convention would take place and also discussed the security arrangements for Manmohan's visit.
Aulakh told HT that stringent security measures were being put in place. Around 2,500 police personnel would be on duty and special nakas would be put up in different parts of the city, he added.

Chandigarh, July 24: The Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) is contemplating increasing the fare by up to 20% and a proposal for the hike has been submitted to the UT administration.
In the past three years, the CTU management had submitted similar proposals to the higher authorities, but they were not considered and as a result of which the CTU incurred heavy losses.
According to sources, the CTU is incurring loss of more than Rs. 3 crore annually, and the frequently increasing diesel prices is also adding around Rs. 2 lakh per day to the existing losses.
A present, 315 buses ply on different routes within the city, connecting it to SAS Nagar and Panchkula, carrying 1.5 lakh passengers on daily basis. The CTU has a sanctioned fleet of 517 buses and it purchased 219 new mid-size buses.
Confirming the development, transport director TPS Phoolka said though a proposal had been sent, fares would be revised only after getting approval from the higher authorities.
According to the proposal, for ordinary buses the fare will have three slabs, while for AC buses the fare has been divided into four slabs. At present, there are only two slabs of fares in both categories.
Currently, the commuters have to shell out Rs. 5 for 5 km and Rs. 10 for more than 5 km for non-AC buses and Rs. 10 for up to 5 km and Rs. 15 for more than 5 km for travelling in AC buses. (Courtesy: Hindustan Times)....

Centre already exploring options to amicably sort out the issue

Haryana Sikh Gurdwara panel row: Badal, Hooda in no mood to budge

Chandigarh, July 24: Sticking to their guns on the contentious formation of the Haryana Gurdwara panel, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and his Haryana counterpart Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Wednesday blamed each other for exploiting the issue for political gains.
In separate interviews to Hindustan Times, both state heads stoutly defended their diametrically opposite stands on the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC) that has pitch-forked the Centre into a tense constitutional stand-off with Haryana.
“There is no question of a re-think or backing down (on the HSGMC Act),” Hooda said soon after he signed a file on the constitution of the 41-member ad-hoc HSGMC to manage 38-odd gurdwaras in the state.
Haryana’s latest step – seen as pushing the envelope on the controversial law – came a day after the BJP-led NDA government made it clear that it was well within its power to direct the state to undo the HSGMC Act that has raised the hackles of the BJP’s ally in Punjab, Shiromani Akali Dal.
Badal, on his part, swore by his resolve to scuttle the HSGMC and hinted that he would step down as chief minister to lead an agitation, the contours of which would be decided at the Panthic congregation in the Golden Temple complex in Amritsar on July 27. “It’s a very sensitive matter and the nation must intervene to stop Haryana from carrying through its patently unconstitutional act,” he warned, claiming that “ the Centre is with us on this issue.”
Faced with an intransigent Congress chief minister Hooda, the Centre is hinging its next move on a change of guard at the Haryana Raj Bhawan as the term of incumbent Jagannath Pahadia, who stamped the controversial bill into an act, will end on July 26. The NDA-appointee governor may be amenable to withdrawing the assent.

But, Hooda appears to be unfazed over the Centre’s loaded overtures to make Haryana fall in line. “No matter who is at the Raj Bhawan, the Union government can’t touch the act passed by an elected House representing two-and-a-half crore people of Haryana” he asserted.

New Delhi, July 24: Had the driver of the ill-fated school bus, which met with a tragic accident while crossing the unmanned railway crossing in Telangana's Medak district on Thursday, not taken a short cut, lives of 16 children could have been saved, police said.
Media reports that the hired driver, who was behind the wheel instead of the regular driver, opted to cross the railway line through an unmanned railway level crossing though there are two manned railway crossings in Masayipet village, a senior officer said.
Eighteen persons, including sixteen children along with the bus driver and cleaner, were killed when Nanded-Secunderabad Passenger train collided with the bus on the railway track at around 9 AM.
The accident was so severe that the train dragged the bus, carrying 36 children, to a distance of around 50 metres before coming to a halt.

"The driver took the unmanned gate to cross the railway track as the distance through a manned gate is a bit longer. This has proved fatal for the students. While 13 of them died on the spot, another three died on way to hospitals. Both driver and cleaner of the bus were also killed and 22 injured children are undergoing treatment," Sharat said.

He said many of the children are in a serious condition.

A senior official of South Central Railway (SCR) said the village has three level-crossings, out of which two are manned and one unmanned, within the distance of 1.5 km.
According to a GRP officer as the regular driver of the private school bus was on leave, the vehicle was driven by a hired driver.

"Today the bus was driven by an hired driver in place of the regular driver, who had been on leave. The regular bus driver used to be alert and would watch both sides of the track while crossing the site where the accident took place," Telangana, GRP IG, Kripanand Tripathi Ujela said.

"One Bikshapati Goud, the temporary driver who was driving the bus seems to have not noticed the speeding train coming on the track, and unmanned level crossing is also another issue resulting in the mishap," Ujela, who is supervising the relief and rescue operation at the scene said.

All the bodies of children have been shifted from the spot to different hospitals and will be handed over to their parents after postmortem is conducted.

"Over 20 others who were injured in the incident have been rushed to different hospitals in Hyderabad," he said. Meanwhile, mild tension prevailed at the spot as hundreds of villagers gathered and hurled stones at police demanding a strict action against those responsible for the incident.

"There is lot of commotion right now. The highway has been jammed due to the road-blockade and police were dispersing the crowd," another police officer said.

The accident site falls between Masaipet and Wadiaram railway stations on Secunderabad-Nizamabad section of Hyderabad division.

New Delhi, July 24: The Cabinet today 49% foreign investment in insurance companies through the FIPB route ensuring management control in the hands of Indian promoters.
Media reports that "The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has approved raising of FDI cap in insurance sector to 49 percent from 26 percent," sources said after a meeting of the CCEA, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.
With the Cabinet approving the amendments to the long pending Insurance Laws (Amendment) Bill, it will now be taken up by Parliament.
In his budget speech, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had said that the insurance sector is investment starved and there is a need to increase the composite cap in the sector to 49 percent, with full Indian management and control, through the FIPB route.
The move would help insurance firms to get much needed capital from overseas partners.
The proposal to raise FDI cap has been pending since 2008 when the previous UPA government introduced the Insurance Laws (Amendment) Bill to hike foreign holding in insurance joint ventures to 49 percent from the existing 26 percent.
However, the Bill could not be taken up in the Rajya Sabha because of opposition from several political parties, including the BJP.
The insurance sector was opened up for private sector in 2000 after the enactment of the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority Act, 1999 (IRDA Act, 1999).
This Act permitted foreign shareholding in insurance companies to the extent of 26 percent with an aim to provide better insurance coverage and to augment the flow of long term resources for financing infrastructure.
The industry has been demanding for long to increase the FDI limit for adequate funds for expansion of the sector.
CCEA okays sale of 10 mn tonnes of wheat in open market

The government on Thursday approved sale of 10 million tonnes of wheat from FCI stock in the open market in order to boost domestic supply and check prices.

A decision in this regard was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA), headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.

"The CCEA has cleared sale of about 10 million tonnes of wheat via the Open Market Sale Scheme (OMSS) to bulk buyers," sources said.
The reserve price under OMSS has been fixed at Rs 1,500 per quintal plus freight charges for old crop and five per cent premium for new crop, the sources added.
Wheat would be sold through e-tendering process by the state-run Food Corporation of India (FCI) with an aim to improve domestic supply of wheat and check prices, besides reducing storage pressure on the FCI.
Wheat prices have firmed up in the last few days. Wholesale price of wheat has increased to Rs 19 per kg in the national market in July, from Rs 16.10 per kg in the same month last year, as per the official data.
In 2013-14, the government had announced sale of 8.5 million tonnes of wheat via OMSS, but was able to sell only 5.8 million tonnes, earning about Rs 9,310 crore.
Till early this month, the FCI had a wheat stock of 40 million tonnes, against the requirement of 20 million tonnes.
The country had produced a record 95.60 million tonnes of wheat in the 2013-14 crop year.

Cabinet clears bill to empower SEBI to deal with ponzi schemes
A Bill to effectively empower the market regulator SEBI to crack down on ponzi schemes and investment frauds was approved by the Cabinet on Thursday.
Following the CCEA approval, the Securities Laws (Amendment) Bill will be introduced in Parliament.

"The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has cleared the Sebi Bill," an official source said.

The Bill seeks to give Sebi sweeping powers like attachment of properties, launch of recovery proceedings, seeking call data records to investigate cases and ordering search and seizure against manipulators and fraudsters.

The previous UPA government had sought to empower the market regulator to deal with ponzi schemes through an Ordinance, which was promulgated thrice.

However, the Ordinance could not be passed by Parliament which is necessary for making in an Act.

Once the amendment, approved by the CCEA, is passed by Parliament, Sebi would get the requisite powers to deal with economic offences of serious nature. ....

Ludhiana, July 24: Senior AAP leader and Advocate H S Phoolka vehemently said that the Centre cannot dismiss Haryana Govt. for not following directions on HSGPC. He said that SAD, in the past has always taken stand not using Article 356 against the states.

Elaboration his viewpoint Phoolka said, Under Article 355 of the Constitution of India, it is the duty of the Union to protect States against external aggression and internal disturbances and to ensure that State Government follows the Constitution. This Article could also mean that the Central Government is bound to oppose and check the disturbances being created by the Punjab Government in Haryana, as the same being an act of aggression. There have been many instances in the past where an act passed by State is against a Central Act or against the Constitution. In such cases the Supreme Court decided the issue. One of the known cases of this nature is the matter of migrants of Assam.
Senior Advocate further said that the Central Government can give the direction to the State under Article 256. The Supreme Court has held that in every case where the directions of the Central Government are not followed by the State, does not make out a case for dismissal of the State Government and warrant action against the State Government. It is only in a case of very serious nature where Article 356 needs to be invoked.

Phoolka further said that the Supreme Court in the matter of S.R.Bommai versus Union of India, reported as 1994(3) SCC1, has clearly mentioned that it is not each and every failure to follow the direction of the Central Government could warrant dismissal of State Government under Article 356 of the Constitution. The State Government can be dismissed if the situation is so grave in nature as contemplated in Article 356. The Supreme Court has said that President has to judge that if, by not following the directions of the Central Government, the situation arisen is of such a grave nature that it can be said that the functions of the State Government cannot be carried out in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution. Unless the President arrives to this conclusion, the Government of a State cannot be dismissed under Article 356. Supreme Court has also cautioned Central Government to use Article 356 only in a situation of grave nature. Supreme Court has held in the case ofRameshawar Prasad that drastic and extreme action under Article 365 cannot be justified on mere ipse dixit.

Akali Dal, throughout, has been protesting against the misuse of Article 356 and dissolving the State Government. Akali Dal has been demanding total implementation the recommendations ofSarkaria Commission. According to Sarkaria Commisssion, Article 356 should be used “rarely and in extreme cases, as a last resort when all alternative correctives have failed” .It is most surprising that the Akali Dal has all of a sudden changed its decades old stand.

The issue of HSGPC is purely related to the interpretation of law. The Haryana Government claims that Section 72 of the Sikh Reorganization Act, 1966, gives it the power to pass an act creating separate SGPC for Haryana. Further, the High Court Judgment of the full bench, which was upheld by the Supreme Court in its Judgment of Kashmir Singh vs. Union of India reported as (2008) 7 SCC 259, also endorses the view that Haryana can pass a law. In view of this ambiguity in the legal position and in view of the parameters laid down by the Supreme Court in S.R. Bommai case, by no stretch of imagination, it can be said that such a situation has arisen “in which the government of the State cannot be carried on in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution.”

Thus, the act of the BJP Government at centre, threatening to invoke Article 356 is totally illegal and in violation of the principles laid down by the Supreme Court.

Phoolka expressed surprise over the media reports that Sant Samaj has decided to attend the conclave called by SAD. An organization like Sant Samaj should not side with any particular Sikh group and rather, they should use their influence to bring about a settlement between the two groups of Sikh Panth. SAD has declared that the conclave called by them is not for the whole Sikh Panth, but only for people whom they have invited. In view of this matter, the Sant Samaj should reconsider its decision and should play the role of a mediator, rather than siding with any particular Sikh group. As it emerges now, this move of SAD is creating a division in the Sikh Panth. Efforts should be made by all including Sikh intelligentsia, Sant Samaj and former Jathedars Sahib to act as “Mediators”.....

Chandigarh, July 24: 1978 batch IAS Shakuntala Jakhu is all set to become the next Chief Secretary of Haryana while the present Chief Secretary, S C Choudhary, will be the next Chief Commissioner of the newly established Right to Service Commission Haryana.
S C Choudhary is to retire at the end of this month has been ticked for the new assignment and the selection committee comprising Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Cabinet Minister Geeta Bhukkal on Wednesday cleared his name. The selection committee meeting took place in the absence of its third member O P Chautala, who is the Leader of the Opposition. The committee also gave its nod to the other three members of the commission and also to the three commissioners for the State Information Commission. The names are being forwarded to Governor Jagannath Pahadia for his approval, added sources. Choudhary was granted three-month extension after his term as chief secretary ended on April 30. Sources said that the government might have been interested in another extension for Choudhary, but with the change of regime at the Centre and the NDA government coming in, that might not have materialised. Interestingly, Choudhary headed the selection committee formed a few months back to pick up names for chief commissioner and commissioners of Right to Service Commission.
Sanjay Kothari and Shakuntala Jakhu – both 1978 batch officials—were the two senior-most officials of the Haryana cadre. However, Kothari who is on deputation to the government of India has been appointed as the Department of Personnel and Training Secretary and takes over from August 1. The only other factor that could have gone against Jakhu was that she superannuates in next two months, but the government has decided to go ahead with her, said the official sources. Name of Principal Secretary, Home, Praveen Kumar Gupta was also doing the rounds for the post. The 1981-batch officer, who retires at the end of this year, is currently on ex-India leave.

The names forwarded for the commissioners include 1983-batch official Sarban Singh, who retired in December last year. An advocate in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Sunil Katyal, has also been picked up.

Chandigarh, July 24: As part of the initiative to give clean, transparent and corruption free administration by the Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, the State Government forwarded the cases of two controversial IAS officers – Vikas Garg (1988) and Vijay Kumar Janjua (1989) batch, respectively, to the Union government for according prosecution sanction in different corruption cases against them. It is also learnt that the Chief Minister has given nod for prosecuting tainted PCS officer T K Goel in a trap case registered against him.
It may be recalled that the State Government had in August, 2013 dismissed (prematurely retired) three senior Punjab Civil Service (PCS) officers and imposed major penalty, first time in the state’s history, on two senior Punjab cadre IAS officers. Besides, the state government had initiated criminal and disciplinary proceedings against at least 15 IAS officers and 17 PCS officers in various cases of serious misconduct. The cases were hanging fire in the absence of prosecution sanction for the past several years.
CASE HISTORY:
VIKAS GARG (IAS 1998 batch)
He was chargesheeted on account of Rs 250-crore fraud in execution of sale deeds of government land in Patiala as the Deputy Commissioner in 2012. The Vigilance Bureau had registered an FIR against him and had advised that parallel departmental inquiry may not be held in this case. Almost three months after arresting him from Delhi in connection with the high-profile land scam, the Punjab Vigilance Bureau (VB) had in June, 2013 moved the state government, seeking prosecution sanction to challan Garg. Intending to file the challan within stipulated time period, the VB had written to the Chief Secretary, seeking sanction to prosecute Garg. However, in its absence, Garg was granted bail.

Besides Garg, who was recently reinstated, and posted Special Secretary, Health and Family Welfare, nine others, including four former Revenue officers and five private individuals were booked under various Sections of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act on November 9,

2012. Except two property dealers N P Singh and Ravdeep Singh, who had been declared proclaimed offenders, rest all eight accused had been arrested and were later granted bail.
VIJAY KUMAR JANJUA (IAS 1989 batch))
Booked by the Vigilance Bureau in 2009. Challan presented in 2010. Proceedings stayed by the High Court. Janjua, who was presently posted as the Secretary, Freedom Fighters, was on November 9, 2009, arrested by the VB from his Chandigarh office while allegedly accepting Rs 2 lakh as bribe from a Ludhiana-based industrialist to allot him a vacant plot. At that time, he was posted as the Secretary-cum-Director, Industries and Commerce.
T K GOEL (PCS)
Joint Secretary, Welfare of SCs and BCs, was nabbed red-handed while allegedly accepting Rs 50,000 bribe at his office from George Shubh, a resident of Begowal village in Kapurthala district, by the VB on September 8, 2010. The VB had filed untraceable report, but court had ordered re-investigation in his case, following which the VB had sought prosecution sanction last year. He was also booked by the Chandigarh Police for allegedly preparing a forged caste certificate.

Badal suffers from selective memory loss: Bajwa

The call for morcha will be the last hoax call to which people of Punjab will not respond

Chandigarh, July 24: Launching a frontal attack on the Punjab Chief Minister, Mr. Parkash Singh Badal, the state Congress chief, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa, said he suffered from selective memory loss and was playing his card of political opportunism by portraying his proposed agitation against the formation of the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee as Panth versus Congress fight targeted at reviving the Akali Dal base whose erosion had been reflected in the recent Lok Sabha elections. The so called fight against the bifurcation of the Amritsar based Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee was to divert the tsunami of anger among the people against the government.

He said the proposed morcha was the last hoax call of Mr Badal to which the people of Punjab would not respond. “You cannot play with the sentiments of the people all the time by portraying the party as a Punjabi party at one time and then again reverting to the Panthic agenda depending upon your convenience”, he said.

In a statement, Mr Bajwa reminded Mr Badal that the issue had first cropped up way back in 1972 but despite that, he abandoned the demand of his party for all India Gurdwara legislation which could have ended such controversies as that would have given representation to the Sikhs from all over the country and ensured their participation in the management of their own shrines. However, Mr Badal reneged from this demand despite three drafts of the proposed legislation having been prepared which were consigned to the dustbin by the SGPC and the Akali Dal. It was the SGPC which was to ratify the draft for moving it in the Lok Sabha to enact the legislation. The people had a right to know as to why Mr Badal backtracked from that despite the fact that he had been controlling this body all these year. Of course, his monopoly would have ended with that.

He pointed out the SGPC was not an all India body as Mr Badal had tried to make out now as he must read the Sikh Gurdwara Act, 1925, enacted by the Punjab Legislative Council according to which, its jurisdiction was confined to pre-partition Punjab. Even the areas of the princely states were not under it. It became an inter-state body corporate after re-organisation of Indian Punjab in 1966 which entitled Haryana to have its own body for the Sikh shrines. If it was an all India body, how come that the Akali Dal launched an agitation to have a similar body for the management of the Sikh shrines in Delhi, he asked. He advised Mr Badal to stop misleading and befooling people by distorting what was on the record.

“It is ironic that Mr Badal has suddenly started expressing his commitment to Akal Takht, the institution whose directives he himself had been defying at one time or the other. He violated the directive from Akal Takht when Prof Manjit Singh was its Jathedar at the time of the formation of the Akali Dal (Amritsar). As the Chief Minister, he again confronted Akal Takht Hukamnama in 1999 directing him to keep the Akali Dal united in view of the Khalsa Tercentenary in 1999. He went to the extent of getting then Jathedar Bhai Ranjit Singh sacked unceremoniously. It is ironic that his party is now raising the slogan of ‘Akal Takht Mahan Hai, Sikh Panth Dee Shaan Hai’ given by Akali Dal stalwart Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Tohra following this defiance of Akal Takht by Mr Badal”, he added.

He called upon Mr Badal to disclose to the people that it was on the Congress ticket on which he had contested his first Assembly election in 1957. He slammed him for resorting to his opportunistic tactics to regain the lost support base by exploiting the religious sentiments of the people and said the people were now well aware and would not fall into his trap. He said the depth to which he could fall was the burning of the constitution by him in the pre-1984 period for which he was still to apologise although he had been swearing by the same constitution.....

Chandigarh, July 24: Mr. Madan Mohan Mittal, Technical Education and Industrial Training Minister, Punjab today issued instructions to all the government and private technical education an institute including Engineering Colleges, Polytechnics and ITI’s to set up anti ragging helplines within 15 days to ensure that students being admitted by them in fresh batches were not subjected to any harassment and ragging by the seniors.
Terming the ragging as peril to education system, Mr. Mittal has said that if any student found indulging in ragging, he/she would be immediately sacked from institutes besides registration of criminal case against the guilty. He also asked Principal Secretary of the department to establish helpline at headquarter where students may lodge their complaint if they were not satisfied with the redressal of their grievances at concerned institution level. He also asked department to depute senior officials to randomly check the status and disposal of complaints.

Jalandhar, July 24: Taking a dig at Parkash Singh Badal for claiming to be a Panthic leader, who is willing to make even sacrifice for Panthic cause, the Dal Khalsa said all through his life his practice has been just the opposite.

In a hard hitting statement, party chief H S Dhami asked Badal to first prove his Panthic credentials before launching the morcha to protest against the formation of newly-established HSGMC.

He said as a first step, Badal should remove the DGP Sumedh Singh Saini, who is the symbol of repression and tyranny against the Sikh youth. “Badal should constitute SIT to probe fake encounters, extra-judicial killings and human rights violations in 80's and 90's”, said he and added that Badal must fulfill his party promise to set up a judicial commission to dig out the truth what exactly happened during the militancy period and which forces were responsible for it.

Firing a salvo against the Badal for claiming to be sole representative of the Panth, Dhami said Panth is manifestation of collective will of the Sikhs and not of a single political party that have already given up its Panthic identity and credentials.

Dal Khalsa leader claimed that Badal wants to keep the pot (issue) boiling, to revive his Panthic credentials that have taken a low because of his opportunistic politics.

He said Badal is pushing the Sikhs of Haryana towards the wall by portraying them as nothing but stooge of Congress. He said Badal's opportunism is on full display these days.

He said the irony of the situation is that the entire energy and resources (guru’s golak) of the community is being directed to launch the morcha aiming to revive the “the Akali Dal".

Dal Khalsa leader pointed out that the SGPC is not the all India body as claimed by Badal in an Interview to English paper. It is confined to Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pardesh. He said though the SGPC has been articulating the ambitions and aspirations of the community for years, however, it was the Badal who has demolished the basic character of this elected institution by making it an extension counter of his party. Dhami rue that Badal has made the seat of Jathedar Akal Takht Sahib as his captive.

Gurdaspur, July 24: With the changing climatic conditions, water from rainfall is becoming more unreliable. It is in such a situation that the agricultural sector will have to feed more people and have very little water to spare as there is also pressure from increasing water demand from other sectors. In order to then get more crop per drop of water, There is need to adopt such techniques by which farmers can increase their rice production by using less underground water for
irrigation and other resources said Dr Ravi Kumar Sabharwal, Chief Agriculture officer, Gurdaspur while taking to the correspondent and inspecting the field trials of Rice cultivation to evaluate the different method of Rice cultivation in the context of climate changevillage Thanewal of BlockGurdaspur.

He said that direct seeding rice and System of Rice Intensification (SRI) are two methods of rice cultivation by which we can save natural resource. Studies by different farm scientist show that SRI uses up to 30-40% less water per ha of rice farm.

Dr. Sabharwal said that SRI has been validated in Gurdaspur by Deptt. of Agriculture, Gurdaspur during last 9 year which shows that 20-25 % yield of paddy per hac can be increased while using75% less seed,30-40% underground water for irrigation, No use of weedicide, minimum use of pesticide and fungicide. He said that about 1900-5000 litre of water is being used to produce 1 kg of rice. Thus the water use is immense in rice production. He said that SRI then, is an
agro-ecological method for increasing the productivity of rice by changing the way that the plants, soil and water are managed. He said that SRI technique was developed in collaboration with the farmers in Madagascar in the 1980s by Henry de lonely. He said that purpose of SRI is to enable Small and marginal farmers with limited resources to increase their production and income without relying on external sources. So if we look at the question of water today, it becomes extremely important to then look at the benefits that SRI gives us, Dr Sabharwal said. This year's troubled monsoon (while the rainfall deficit is as high as 64% in Punjab-Haryana, in fact these deficits were even higher on July 15, 2014) has been a cause for concern for farmers. He said that in the climate change context, the SRI plants have shown greater adaptability to both droughts and floods. So why is it that this potential is not being harnessed?

Dr Amrik Singh Agriculture Development officer said that declining supply
of underground water will be a major problem in the years ahead, due to
increasing demands for non-agricultural purposes and uncertainty and
reduction of water supply. Punjab has already exhausted its upper layer of
groundwater, and farmers are now using high-powered pumps to reach supplies
lower in the soil horizon, He said. Dr Amrik Singh said that in the
traditional cultivation of rice, seedlings are transplanted at an age of
25-30 days, and fields are kept continuously flooded/inundated, thinking
(incorrectly) that this will increase productivity. Chemical fertilizers,
insecticides and pesticides as well as herbicides are applied at high
levels, contributing to air, water and soil pollution with the result of
soil degradation and declines in air and water quality, On the other hand,
SRI does not require continuous flooding of fields, but requires water only
when the crop needs it, i.e., when the field is relatively dry and ready
for the next irrigation. He said that Based on the performance of yield
under SRI, it appears that there is great potential for increasing the
yield of rice in the country. Because there are no requirements to purchase
new seeds or agro-inputs, it has better prospects for adoption by
resource-poor farmers and more particularly by the small and marginal
farmers of the country who have limited scope of land expansion can
increase their yield per unit and per day of labor by adopting SRI. This
technology will be very helpful for increasing social and economic status
of large numbers of the farming community he said.

These views were expressed by Bhai Bohar Singh Thind and Pargat Singh Sandhu of Akali Dal (Amritsar) jointly to the media persons.
They said, the gathering at Gurudwara Manji Sahib situated in Golden Temple complex on 27 July could be gathering of Punjabi party but it can’t be a gathering of whole panth and Badal has no right to call panthic gathering.
They said, for the last 25-30 years, the party has ignored the problems of the Sikhs. Not only this, Shiromani Akali Dal Badal despite being in power, has not been able to pass a protest resolution in the Assembly of army attack on Golden Temple in 1984.
Thind and Sadhu said, SAD(B) party is also exploiting the sentiments of Sikhs on the issue of racism on 1984 Sikhs as earlier also BJP alliance government has ruled in the Centre and could not given justice to the 1984 riots affected by giving punishment to the accused. Now with the formation of separate committee in Haryana, they are opposing it as they will be losing the right of power over the ‘guru ghar gholak’ of more than Rs.200 crore.

Chandigarh, July 23: The plea of Shiromani Akali Dal that the Haryana Assembly does not have the power to pass the Act and that the Act is unconstitutional and is a matter to be decided by the Supreme Court. The opinion of the Attorney General is binding on the Central Govt. alone. The said opinion is not a law and the State government may not agree with that. There have been numerous instances when the Central government took action on the opinion of Attorney General and the said actions were quashed by the Courts for being illegal. The Haryana Govt. has its own Advocate General and the Haryana Advocate General has given the opinion that Haryana assembly is empowered as per the constitution to pass this Law. This issue can now only be resolved by the Supreme Court. In view of this position, the provocative speeches by the Akali leaders and the filling of Haryana Gurdwaras by the armed men is absolutely wrong.

The SAD is taking this action under the pretext of keeping the Sikh Panth united, and at the same time trying to create violence and disturb peace in Gurdwaras. This action of SAD is totally dividing the Sikh Panth and is detrimental to the Panth. If the SAD had been sincere that they do not want division in the Panth they should file the Petition in the Supreme Court by now. The reason that they are not filing the petition itself shows that they are not sure about succeeding in the Supreme Court and the correctness of legal position propounded by them.

Mr. Phoolka appeals to Sikh Leaders of Haryana that not to take the help of Police in taking over the control of Gurdwaras. This could results in violence in the Gurdwara. Badals want violence in the Gurdwaras at this moment because they have utterly failed on all the fronts and wants to take up issue of use of Police by Haryana government in Gurdwaras.

Mr. Phoolka advised the HSGPC leaders to use other methods and to avoid Police and violence. According to Mr. Phoolka the best way to take over control is that after the HSGPC is constituted, it should file a Suit for Injunction against S. Avtar Singh Makkar – President SGPC and S. Sukhbir Singh Badal President Shromani Akali Dal, seeking the orders from the Court that these persons and their agents should be restrained from interfering in the management of Haryana Gurdwaras. After the Court passes restraining order and if S. Avtar Singh Makkar and S. Sukhbir Singh Badal does not obey these orders and keep interfering in the management, then both can be arrested in the proceeding of ‘Contempt of Court’ and in such eventuality they would not be released till they stop interfering in the management and obey the directions of the Court. This way the violence as well as the Police interference in the Gurdwaras will be avoided.

Both the sides should wait for the final decision by the Court. In the meanwhile, the 11 members of SGPC who are elected from Haryana should be given the control and management of the Gurdwaras in Haryana, with a clear understanding that they will further handover the control to the party whichever ultimately succeeds in the Supreme Court.

Chandigarh, July 23: As part of the strategy chalked out by the Congress to highlight the alleged mis-governance of SAD-BJP in Punjab, the state wise protest and dharnas were organized at all district headquarters throughout the state. The major focus of this anti-SAD-BJP Government campaign was Jalandhar where PPCC President Partap Singh Bajwa & other senior leaders address the well attended function.

While giving a clarion call to the party rank and file to gear up for the 2017 Assembly elections forthwith, the Punjab Congress President, Partap Singh Bajwa, today reiterated the demand for CBI probe into drug smuggling racket as the issue concerned the destiny of the people in general and the youth in particular in this sensitive border state.

The PPCC President while ridiculing the SAD-BJP Government for its failure on all fronts asserted that 2017 would see Congress in saddle in Punjab by replacing this most corrupt, non-performing and degenerated government. The people were already filled up with anger and they are waiting for the day they would get rid of this in-efficient government which had put the once most prosperous state in reverse gear while the family fortunes of the ruling Badal family had multiplied hundreds of times during this period. He slammed the Badal government as government of looters. He called upon the people to start mobilisation without any loss of time.

He reminded the Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal, that he had been alleging discrimination and step motherly treatment at the hands of the UPA government. “It is your own government in power at the centre now but still, there is no sign that Punjab has started getting ‘motherly’ treatment. The fact of the matter is that you have been trying to mislead the people about the UPA government which had been too liberal towards Punjab”, he added.

He said Badal had been giving the impression that with the change of government at the centre, Punjab would start getting truckloads of money. He said the people were waiting for those trucks and wanted to know whether the same had been diverted to some other destination.

He reminded that the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, in the run up to the elections, had been promising “achhe din” (paradise) but was now talking of administering the bitter pill and had already betrayed the people within the very first month of coming into power.

He took the Badal government to task for rampant corruption and administrative paralysis. He said that the extent to which law and order had deteriorated could be gauged from the fact that even the mother of the Hoshiarpur MP, Mr Vijay Sampla, was robbed in Jalandhar.

Referring to the worsening power situation, he said the state was suffering long power cuts. This was contrary to the tall claims being made over the years by the Deputy Chief Minister, Sukhbir Singh Badal, of making Punjab power surplus and exporting power to Pakistan.

The dharnas received overwhelming response at various district headquarters where memorandum were submitted to the respective deputy commissioners.Those who joined the dharna at Jalandhar included the former ministers, Avtar Henry and Chaudhary Jagjit Singh, state Youth Congress President Ch. Vikram Singh, party General Secretary Mr Rajanbir Singh, Sh Rajinder Beri DCC President Jalandhar (urban), S Jagbir Singh Brar ( DCC President Jallandhar Rural) and Mr Inderpal Singh Dhanna, Secretary PPCC

In Ludhiana, AICC Secretary Harish Chaudhary and Sh Ravneet Bittu, MP led the Congressmen in protest against the state government.

The former chief minister, Mrs Rajinder Kaur Bhattal led the dharna at Bathinda and the former Union Minister Mrs Preneet Kaur at Patiala. The senior leaders who joined the dharna at Patiala included Mr Laal Singh and Mr Brahm Mohindra.

The former PCC Presidents Mr Shamsher Singh Dullo and Mohinder Singh Kaypee led the Dharnas at Fatehgarh Sahib and Hoshiarpur respectvely while former state party chief Mr H S Hanspal and ex-MLA Mr Sukhpal Singh Khaira and DCC Kapurthala Preisdent S. Navtej Cheema were present at Phagwara.

At all other district headquarters, the protests were led by MLAs, ex-MLAs and the district presidents.

Chandigarh, July 23: General Secretary Shiromani Akali Dal and Irrigation Minister Punjab, Mr. Sharanjit Dhillon has squarely blamed the Haryana government for creating a separate state level Gurdwara management committee. In a statement issued here today, Mr. Dhillon said that this unconstitutional and unethical move on the part of Hooda government was politically motivated aimed at dividing the Sikh sangat. He termed it as a great betrayal with the Sikh Panth. Sikhs would not tolerate the mischievous action of the Haryana government who got the bill passed under “Money Bill” category.
Reacting strongly to the action of Haryana government in passing the bill of separate SGPC in the Haryana Vidhan Sabha, Mr. Dhillon said that the shoddy manner in which the state government acted spoke volumes of the hidden agenda of the Hooda government who was acting at the behest of Sonia Gandhi. They have deliberately got the bill passed in Money Bill category so that it could not be sent to the President for his approval. He also said that as per the constitution any Religious Bill comes under Civil Bill and this bill being a part of the concurrent list requires the approval of the President of India.

He expressed shock that the Haryana government had declared the Sikh Gurdwaras as government property under the companies Act. The sacred offerings of the the Sikh devotees before Sri guru Granth Sahib will now become government's revenue. It is not the Panthic representatives but hand-picked Masands of the Haryana Government who are being asked to manage the sacred Sikh shrines. These Masandswill now become employees of the Haryana government and will get their salaries from the state treasury, said Mr. Dhillon.
Adding further, he said that this was the fourth attempt of Mr. Hooda to divide the Sikhs on religious issues. He said that this back stabbing of the Chief Minister would be a direct interference in the religious matters of the Sikh Panth. The entire Sikh sangat should be indebted to S. Parkash Singh Badal who has dedicated his entire life to safeguard the interests of Punjab in general and Sikh community in particular. Now it was our duty to carry forward this legacy in the larger interest of the Sikh sangat. Hooda like people who were in the grip of power would not be allowed to torn the hard earned Sikh image in the world, said Mr. Dhillon.

Another challenge for SAD leadership

Badals neither sincere nor serious towards release of Rajoana & Prof Bhullar: Dal Khalsa

Hoshiarpur, July 23: Dal Khalsa today lashed out at Shiromani Akali Dal supremo and chief minister P S Badal for being allegedly insincere and non-serious towards the plight of death row convict Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana. The organization feels that instead of taking up the cases of the prisoners including Rajoana and Prof Bhullar with Modi Sarkar, Akalis have embarked on a course that would further lead to internal bickering in the community thus bringing bad name to Sikh Diaspora.

There are indications from the Union Home Ministry that Home Minister Rajnath Singh will be taking the call on Rajoana’s clemency plea in the near future.

Referring to Home Ministry statement that Punjab government has neither said yes or no for executing Rajoana, Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said this exposes the double face of the Badal led Akali government. Appreciating Rajoana for his dedication and principled stance in not seeking clemency for him, he said it was up to Akali leadership to take the issue to its logical conclusion as it was they who petitioned before the President against his death sentence.

Similarly, he said the apex court has commuted death sentence of Prof Davinder Pal Singh Bhullar into life on March 31. Since he had already undergone 19 years behind bars and his medical condition is not okay, apart from lip service Badals have not taken any practical step to ensure his release.

Highly critical of SAD's non-committal approach on sensitive issues, he said Badals have met Rajnath Singh twice in the last week to seek help on HSGPC controversy but ironically they had no interest and time for Rajoana and Bhullar.

Slamming Badals for playing opportunistic politics, he said the irony of the situation is that Badal is reverting to Akal Takht -the very supreme institution he opposed 15 years ago. After defying the edict of Akal Takht in April 1999, Badal shifted his political centre from Amritsar to Chandigarh. Now again he was talking of Panth, raking up Akali Dal's age old political war cry of ‘Sikh panth in danger', said he and added that however, this time it would not cut the ice.

Kanwar Pal Singh said launching morcha to protest against the creation of separate gurdwara committee in Haryana would mean directing the focus, energy and resources of the community towards the issue that would further create divisions amongst the community. He said the word struggle, agitation and Panth were not in the dictionary of Badals.....

Ferozepur, July 23: Punjab Congress today organized statewide protest in front of Deputy Commissioner’s offices against the total misgovernance of Badal government.
On this occasion, Parmnder Singh Pinki, MLA , Chamkaur Singh Dhindsa, District President and in good number of leaders and Congress workers were present.
In its memorandum, the Congress leaders have shown their serious concern and said, the Punjab, which used to be an advance and non-controversial state is heading towards ruining under the leadership of Parkash Singh Badal, Chief Minister. The State Congress is of the view that in case no action are initiated for improvement, the state is likely to face dark days.
For the last more than seven years of SAD-BJP rule has degenerated Punjab to the brink of collapse in almost all socio-economic spheres. Not only this, the people are fed up from the tall claims of power surplus are becoming hollow. The Badals have not hesitated to give statement that Punjab will export surplus power to Pakistan but the ground level realities are that despite setting up of three thermal power plants, the people of Punjab are facing heavy power cuts. In such a situation, the Punjab Congress demands compensation for loss to the industrial units. The agriculture sector too is affected due to shortage of power and demands Rs.5000 per acre compensation to the farmers.

In the memorandum, it is further stated that the rising unemployment, wide spread drug addiction, closure of industries and unsympathetic business environment, mis-governance and corruption in every government department, rising burden of taxes on common man without cut in government’s extravagant expenses , has forced Congress legislators to agitate on the streets of Punjab to highlight the urgent issues which need to be redressed by Punjab Govt. on priority basis:

The unemployed youths are becoming victim of drugs and have been exposed during the various surveys about the seriousness of the problem. Congress has disclosed the receipt of Rs.90 lakh through ‘hawala’ with proofs and it is necessary bring truth on surface. Without any further loss of time, the drug smuggling inquiry should be handed over to CBI by withdrawing the Revenue Minister from Cabinet, for impartial inquiry. Akali-BJP now cannot make any excuse of CBI as Congress Bureau of Investigation.

Talking about the corruption another issue of serious concern, it is alleged in the memorandum that one cannot get his work done in government offices without purchasing the services. Even the Suvidha Centres have become the dens of corruption. There is a need to clean-up the system at every level and it has to be started from the monopoly of Badal family.

It is further alleged that Badal government has failed to fulfill its promises and claims, economy is in worst condition and the loan amount has crossed 1.16 lakh crore. It is the result of misgovernance and the statistics presented in the budget by making plus and minus, are to cheat the people when the factual position is totally reverse.

At the end of the memorandum, it is stated that Congress promise with the people it is worried about the problems of the people and stand with them and pledge to get them rid of corrupt and mismanaged government and work in the interest of people.

Sharing the pain of the students and the agony of their parents, bittu said, in my constituency even those students who have scored around 80 per cent are being denied admissions by the colleges.

The government as well as the private colleges are flooded with applications from students seeking admissions to various academic, professional as well as vocational courses, Ravneet advised the government to introduce “Shift System” in colleges to tide over the crisis situation.
He said, the government should instruct the college authorities to remove the ceiling on student intake, divide the admitted students into two batches and conduct classes for each batch in two different sessions. One batch can attend classes during the morning session, which could be between 8 am to 1 pm, while the second session can be held between 2 pm to 7 pm, he opined.

Ravneet said, the college managements should be asked to ensure admission to all applicants and tackle the shortage of teaching faculty by going in for recruitment. The move, he added, will not only ensure that no student seeking admission in the college of his choice is turned away on account of inadequate classrooms and teaching faculty but will also provide employment opportunities to capable educated youth as faculty members.....
