Ferozepur, October 1 : The significance of celebrations of Kanjak Poojan depends upon this that government and all organizations should jointly pledge as to how to cope with the increasing gender ratio.

Raj Kishore Kalra, Educationist, President, Social Welfare Society, and Patron of NGOs expressed this in a press release today.

He said, in India, every year about 5 lakh innocent girls are killed in the womb of the mother through abortion and during the last 20 years, approximately 1 crore girls have become victim in the hands of cruel parents. At the same time, increase in number of rape cases is a cause of serious concern for the society. The heinous crime of female feticide are being committed in connivance with the doctor.

In India, the killing of girl in the womb of the mother is more in urban areas than rural areas and among educated people than illiterate because still today, son is considered as successor and girl as burden.

Giving a reference of survey conducted in five countries – India, China, Korea, Pakistan and Taiwan - in a book “Gender Discrimination Among Young Children published by Jackson Warren, in all these countries, sons are given preference than girl child. In Pakistan, there is no killing of girl child in the womb but the women continue to give birth to children till the birth of a son.

Social activist said, the situation in this regards is pitiable in Punjab. All the 22 districts of Punjab are among the 40 district of the country where the gender-ratio is on the higher side. In ten districts, the gender-ratio of girl-child is even1000:846.

Raj Kishore Kalra suggested that the registration of pregnant women, after the marriage, should be mandatory, with follow up to four months so that no woman goes for abortion.

The government has to make stringent laws to eradicate the social evils from the society and all social, religious, teachers and women organization have to come forward to put their contribution for this social cause to justify the signification of celebrations of Kanjak Poojan – worshiping of innocent virgin girls.

Chandigarh, October 1 : The Indian Institute of Public Administration Punjab and Chandigarh (UT) Regional Branch in collaboration with Department of Public Administration, Panjab University (PU), Chandigarh today organized a regional conference on the Theme Paper of Annual Conference of IIPA, titled, ‘Trends in Centre-State Relations’, authored by Professor Dolly Arora of Indian Institute of Public Administration, New Delhi.
The Conference was chaired by Shri B.S. Ojha IAS (Retd.), chairman of the Regional Branch. Prof. B.S. Ghuman, Honorary Secretary, IIPA Punjab and Chandigarh (UT) Regional Branch while welcoming the participants and introduced the theme. Prof. B.S. Ghuman opined that Centre -State relations are witnessing sea change particularly in wake of abolition of Planning Commission as sizeable number of grants are routed through it to the states. Hence the equations of Centre-State relations needed to be rewritten. Prof. Dolly Arora highlighted that Centre-State relations is a very old theme and has witnessed many phases from dominating Centre to the era of cooperative federalism. Prof.
Arora further opined that there are multiple strands of Centre-State relations ranging from cooperation for political power problem solving, economic development; conflict over political power, policy resources; competition for political support, resources, technical know-how, policy; autonomy for socio-cultural identity, political space, economic policy and development; and innovation for consultation, cooperation and problem solving. There are four broad mediating variables, namely, party configurations and imperatives of power, economic conditions and interest configurations, political mobilizations and public pressure and external factors and foreign relations. Prof. Arora emphasized that complexity of issues and overlapping jurisdictions poses challenges to the relations. Thus, to overcome the challenges the need
is to strengthen institutional mechanisms of coordination and consultation. Need of the hour is to devise a state specific formula for distribution of funds instead of adopting a uniform criteria. States should be made partners while deliberating issues irrespective of the point whether the subject under consideration is in the domain of the Union list or the State list.
The Presentations were followed by discussion in which Prof. B.S. Ghuman, Prof. Shital Prakash, Dr. Sanjeev Ranjan, Dr. Bharti Garg, Dr. Jaswinder, Sh. Sewa
Singh Chhibber and Sh. Paramjit S. Sahai participated. Shri B.S. Ojha IAS (Retd.) in his presidential remarks expressed that politics is indispensable but need is to have constructive politics for improving Centre-State relations.
A large number of IIPA members, Faculty members, research scholars and students participated in the conference.

Chandigarh, October 1: Framing innocent citizens in false cases, threatening and scaring them has become standard practice for the Akali Government, but it crossed all boundaries when an Akali leader with the connivance of police shot dead Harjinder Singh(23) and Jatinder Singh(25) in cold blooded manner. Earlier they were Akali workers but in the recent Lok Sabha elections they had campaigned for the Aam Aadmi Party and helped in the victory of Mr. Harinder Singh Khalsa, the AAP MP from Fatehgarh Sahib.
This lead to political enmity and on the backing of the Akali Leadership, Gurjit Singh murdered these two youth.
Because of this, the Aam Aadmi Party demands that Sukhbir Singh Badal who is responsible for this “Goonda Raj” should resign so that the common man can breathe a sigh of relief.
In this context, State wide demonstrations were held at all D. C. offices and they were warned that if justice is not swiftly meted out then the struggle would strengthen further.....

Chandigarh, October 1: INLD MP from Hisar and party candidate from Uchana assembly segment Dushyant Chautala today inaugurated election office in Uchana and urged the voters to vote for INLD to take revenge from the Congress party for sending INLD Supremo Om Parkash Chautala, who earlier represented this seat, into jails by using the CBI.
Dushyant, while getting emotional during the inauguration of the party office said that actually I'm not the “real” candidate of the INLD from Uchana. “I 'm contesting the polls as a representative of the party The real candidate is Sh. Om Parkash Chautala, your real loving leader, whom the Congress and the CBI under a well knitted strategy, has sent into jails so in order to bar him to become Chief Minister. But this is the best time to take that revenge. Your each and every vote for INLD would be a slap on the face of the Congress. If you will vote INLD you are selecting a CM and that would be Sh.Om Parkash Chautala,” said Dushyant while addressing a big gathering.
He also attacked Chaudhary Birender Singh on the occasion terming that even the leader has joined the BJP after deserting the Congress, but basically Birender is still having the Congress blood in it. “Like other Congressmen, Birender is also the alike face and was associate of those Congressmen who sent Chautala saab into jails. It’s the best time to take revenge from both Chief Minister Hooda and the Birender Singh,” said Dushyant.
On this occasion, many former Congressmen and staunch supporters of Chaudhary Birender Singh also joined INLD and were welcomed by Dushyant in party fold.
Prominent among those who joined INLD, include former district complaints redressal committee member and senior vice-president of the Congress party, Subhash Bansal, Cotton Association president Vinod Bansal, Jain Sabha Uchana president, Prajan Kumar Jain, Pesticide Association president Jaswant Bansal, Property dealer association president Parveen Seth, Food Grain Association president Devi Prasaan.

Patiala, October 1 : “Heart diseases are increasing at most alarming rate all over the world. Their prevention is quite simple while their treatment is neither that unproblematic for the patient and his family nor entirely foolproof.” This was stated by Dr Gurpreet Singh Sidhu, noted heart specialist of Patiala at a seminar, “Attacking the Heart Attack’, organised by Punjabi University’s health centre, in collaboration with Patiala Heart Institute and Radio 92.7 FM at university’s kala Bhawan here today.
While giving prevention tips and sensitizing the audience about the major causes of heart-attack, Dr Sidhu said that the heart-related diseases have increased ten times during the past four decades despite inventions, advanced research and availability of hi-tech machines and infrastructure. According to the data available at the moment, the figure was likely to touch 23 million by 2030 if proper steps are not taken to make the people aware and taken preventive measures.
In his presidential remarks, Vice-Chancellor, Dr Jaspal Singh said that the major reason of falling prone to heart attacks or other heart-related diseases was casual and slapdash attitude not only of general masses but well-read people too. The laidback disposition, the habit of ‘self-treatment’ and subscribing to the advice of uninformed friends and relatives occasionally proves fatal. He called upon to arrange such like seminars about other ailments as well to sensitize more and more people about various diseases.
Registrar, Dr Devinder Singh proposed vote of thanks, while In charge of the health centre, Dr Regina Maini welcomed the guests. Cardiologists, Dr Mukesh Yadav and Dr Simarjot Singh Sarin also shared their views about the heart diseases.....

Chandigarh, October 1: Within days of the re-organisation of its kisan and khet mazdoor cell, the Punjab Congress today submitted a memorandum to the Governor, Mr Shivraj Patil, demanding, among others, waiving of loan of the farmers and the farm workers.

The memorandum was submitted by the delegation led by the state party chief, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa which included the former MP and the PCC chief Mr H S Hanspal, the BKU President and the former MP Mr Bhupinder Singh Mann, former MLA and the PPCC Vice-president Mr Surinder Pal Singh Sibia, former MLA and the General Secretary Mr Jasbir Singh Dimpa, party Secretary Mr Harminder Singh Gill, General Secretaries Smt. Lakhwinder Kaur Garcha and Mr Rajanbir Singh, Mr Inderjit Singh Zira, Chairman Kisan and Khet Mazdoor Cell, Mr. Jagtar Singh Rajla Ex-MLA, Mr Gurpartap Singh Mann, Secretary PPCC, Mr Bhupinder Singh Bittu Secretary, Youth leader Mr Khushbaz Singh Jatana and Mr Surinder Kundra, General Secretary, Rice Miller Association.

The party pointed out that on the pattern of the UPA, the Narendra Modi government should also waive the loans of the farmers and farm workers. The government should ensure remunerative process for the farm produce by fixing MSP on the recommendation of the Swaminathan Committee which provides for 50 per cent profit over and above the cost of production and Basmati MSP at the rate of Rs. 3500 per quintal. The party also wanted the procurement of maize at its MSP of Rs. 1300 per quintal.

The delegation demanded that the NDA ban on the states on giving bonus at the rate of Rs. 200 per quintal on paddy should be withdrawn immediately. The moisture content limit of paddy should be restored to 15 per cent as one per cent reduction was causing problems to both farmers as well as the millers. Crop insurance scheme should be implemented by involving MNCs. The Punjab government should announce compensation to the cotton growers at the rate of Rs. 8000 per acre.

The delegation also pressed for Rs. 5000 per acre as drought relief saying the amount of Rs. 420 per acre announced by the government was nothing but a cruel joke. VAT on diesel used in farm operations should be withdrawn.

Taking up the problems faced by the farmers in the border areas, the party impressed upon the government to announce compensation at the rate of Rs. 10000 per acre to the farmers whose lands were between the barbed wire fencing and the international border or alternatively, these lands should be acquired by the government.

The party also pressed for the sugarcane price at the Rs. 340 per quintal.

Taking a serious view of the increasing incidence of suicides in the state, the party demanded that the family of such farmers and farm workers should be given Rs. 5 lakh as compensation. The state government should provide free 5-marla plots to the farm workers.

The payment of paddy to the farmers should be ensured within 24 hours, the delegation added. ....

Nawanshahr, September 30 : Setting another challenging task for upholding the tradition of leading the state in every sphere, the SBS Nagar district has decided to reduce the rate of home deliveries to zero in coming six months.

Divulging the details, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Anindita Mitra while presiding over a meeting with Health officials of the district in this regard said that due to concerted efforts of the district administration the rate of home deliveries has been reduced from 11 percent to five percent in last six months, through a sustained campaign for the promotion of Institutional Deliveries. Now, when we are reviewing the progress then it is not impossible to scale down the figure of mere five percent to further zero percent, she added.

Deputy Commissioner asked all the doctors to tap the typical vulnerable areas in the district where percentage of home deliveries may be high due to brick kiln labour or transit populations. All the ASHA workers sent to all these habitations to exhort them for getting their deliveries done at hospitals so that the practice of home deliveries may be decreased to zero by next six months.

She said that there would be need of awareness among these type of lower strata habitations to tell them about the free facilities given at government hospitals besides free treatment to new natal and mother. Apart from that they should also be told that delivery done at government hospitals, would fetch a consolation of Rs 600 to 700 for SC and BPL people under Janany Suraksha Yojna and Rs 1000 for all, under Mata Kaushalya Kalyan Yojna.

Stating the figures of home deliveries in the district, deputy commissioner said that the district had a total of 3262 deliveries, out of which only 169 had been found as deliveries getting done at home. To provide a safe environment and better treatment, the figure could be reduced to zero by doing extra efforts as per the data of August 2014, she further added. For example Nawanshahr Health Block had a figure of home deliveries 7.6, Balachaur 8.9 and Saroya 7.1 percent of home deliveries as compared to 2.7 percent of Sujjon, 3.3 Percent of Mujaffarpur, 4.2 percent of Mukandpur and 4.6 percent of Banga.

Deputy Commissioner told them to accept the challenge of reducing the home deliveries in the district so that SBS Nagar, once again, emerges as light house for rest of the Punjab in another era.

Jalandhar, September 30: Emphasising the need to impart Skill Development Training to youngsters, the Union Food Processing Minister Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal today asserted that her ministry has made an exclusive plan to execute this program to cater to the emerging Food Processing sector. She also announced that different dishes from different states of country would be branded in foreign shores under the banner of ‘Brand India’.

Describing this program as top priority of her Ministry, Mrs. Badal said in the first phase Skill Development Training programmes would be organised for educated youth. She said 10,000 youth would get this practical training in first phase and this number would be increased as per the needs of the industry.
Presiding over the function hosted by Employees Provident Fund Organisation to facilitate its pension beneficiaries Mrs. Badal informed that Food Processing sector had great potential and there were scores of possibilities to grow in this profession. She said 17 Mega Food Parks were being developed in the country, which would give big push to the industry besides laying strong base of this emerging industry. She said growth and enlargement of food processing was the dire need of the nation to bring food products from ‘farm to platter’ so that self-employment, self-help groups and increasing employment sources could further strengthen the economy of country. She said at present only 2.5 percent fruits and vegetables were under food processing while 36 percent of total milk production, which was too little. Mrs. Badal said a scheme was under progress to establish different dishes from different states of country under the tag of Brand India in foreign countries.

Lauding the bold initiatives taken by Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, Mrs. Badal said it was the vision of Mr. Modi to project general masses as Pilot of country’s economic growth and bringing poverty stricken classes into the ambit of progress. She said that Jan Dhan Yojana and Swach Bharat Abhiyan was the symbol of PM’s vision. She said that Mr. Modi was also initiating steps to make Governance System more convenient and impressive for the facilitation of general masses.
Accusing the former UPA Government for misusing exchequer, Mrs. Badal said it was the result of ill-managed financial strategies of UPA government that the present incumbent was facing financial problems. She said that Food Processing department was still facing pendency of subsidies from the year 2003 till date, which would be disbursed in coming year.
She also appreciated the move of Prime Minister to set minimum pension of Rs. 1000, which would directly extend benefit to more than 50 lakh people.
Answering media queries Mrs. Badal said that Jan Dhan Yojana would provide benefit to each household of the country besides covering the family members under insurance cover. She also honoured EPF Pension Beneficiaries. \
Prominent amongst other present on the occasion included Mr. Chuni Lal Bhagat, Labour Minister, Mr. K.D. Bhandari, Mr. Pawan Kumar Tinu, Mr. Avinash Chander all CPS, Mr. Jangveer Singh, Media Advisor to Deputy CM and officers of all departments.....

Mr Majithia also talked to senior officials in the J&K CM’s secretariat as Mr Farooq Abdullah is in Delhi.
Kashmiri traders and small cottage industry owners also met the Revenue minister and apprised him that Punjab and J and K were not only linked by a bond of friendship as neighbours but that their economies were also inter linked due to close people to people business ties. They said effort being taken by the Punjab government, religious bodies as well as its people would contribute to the economic revival of Kashmir after the devastation caused by floods.
Mr Majithia meanwhile urged the people of Punjab to strengthen the citizen initiative launched by him. “Every person irrespective of his position can contribute in cash or kind to help our Kashmiri brethren in their hour of need”, he said.
The minister also visited the worst affected areas of the valley during his stay besides directing the volunteers from Majithia and Amritsar to apprise him of the relief actions on a daily basis. He also interacted with doctors and asked them to list the medicines needed by them besides meeting with local NGOs and social workers to inquire about the possible steps which could be taken to improve the situation. The people who met Mr Majithia told him they needed to hoard up ration including wheat and rice and also needed a large amount of woolens.
The Budgam gurdwara committee expressed its gratitude to Mr Majithia as well as the Punjab government for the help extended by it and presented a robe of honour (siropa) to the SAD general secretary. The relief material sent to Kashmir in 12 trucks includes drinking water, blankets, dress materials, shawls, medicines, torches, wheat, flour, rice pulses, biscuits and noodles. ....
