New Delhi/Chandigarh/Punjab, May 4:, 2016 The Congress Rajya Sabha member from Punjab and the former state party president Mr Partap Singh Bajwa,while calling for all-party concensus on the issues concerning the farmers in the country, demanded one time loan waiver for the farmers in his home state. This was a must in the wake of increasing incidence of suicides by the farmers and said a total of 56 farmers had ended their lives in the state in three months from January to March last.

Making his maiden intervention in the Zero hour after his election to the Upper House, he pointed out that according to one study, the total loan on farmers in Punjab amounted to about Rs. 69,000 crore including institutional loan of about Rs 54,000. The average loan per farming household in the state was approximately Rs 5.50 lakh. He reminded the House that the UPA government had announced one time loan waiver of Rs 72,000 crore for the entire country.

He referred to the latest case of mother and son committing suicide in Jodhpur village of Barnala district in the presence of police and civil administration officials collaborating with the commission agent who had gone to take forcible possession of the two acre land owned by the family.

He asserted nothing could be more unfortunate than the farmers in this food basket of the country resorting to this extreme action of resorting to suicides. He said Punjab was the land of warriors, sages and seers and had played main role in providing food security to the country when total dependence was on imports.

Mr Bajwa allayed the popular perception that Punjab was the land of big and prosperous farmers and hammered the basic issue of about 70 per cent of the farmers owning less than five acres of land.

He said the total loan quantum assessment was based upon the studies conducted by the Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana and the Punjabi University, Patiala, independently.

He also stressed that law should be enacted to protect the lands of the farmers from being taken over by the money lenders or the banks in case of default in the payment of loan. Moreover, the rate of interest charged by the money lenders should be pegged at the same rate on which banks advance loan to the farmers. The money lenders are charging anything from interest of 24 to 36 per cent.

He appealed to all political parties to join in this endeavor to save farmers from the worsening plight. -GP....

Chandigarh, May 4, 2016: Maintaining that there is a direct connection between unemployment and drug addiction, Former Punjab Chief Minister and PPCC President, Capt. Amarinder Singh, has said that employment generation would be the main priority of his government, if voted to power.
Addressing a large gathering of Punjabi NRIs from Bakersfield and Vaisili, California, on Tuesday, Capt. Amarinder said, “jobs can wean away youths from drugs and if Punjab has to be made drug free for all times to come, employment generation is one of the main solutions”. He said since the government alone cannot provide jobs to all the unemployed youths, the solution lies in making the state’s atmosphere conducive for private sector investments.
Capt. Amarinder said during his tenure MOUs worth Rs 106 lakh crores were signed for private investments in Punjab and had the Badal government pursued them, instead of scrapping all, more than 10 lakhs Punjabi youths would have been meaningfully employed today. “They just scrapped all the projects, as they were afraid that Amarinder would get the credit for solving Punjab’s unemployment problem to this great extent”, he said.

Saying that the industry in Punjab was dead today, Capt. Amarinder blamed the Akalis for creating an atmosphere where people have lost trust in the government. “Thanks to their misrule no private investor wants to look at Punjab and those who are here want to flee to other states”, he said.

Accusing the Badals of looting Punjab, Capt. Amarinder said, “they control all the businesses in the state today. Be it TV, transport, hotels, mining, liquor, they have seized control of all”.

Exhorting the NRIs to use their influence back home, Capt. Amarinder said, “if you are satisfied by what I have said and what I have promised, do tell your near and dear ones to support me and the Congress”. He said he was committed to getting Punjab back on the road to prosperity.

Dubbing AAP as a group of “power hungry outsiders”, Capt. Amarinder said, “Punjab today needs someone who can understand the pain of Punjabis. These outsiders have no concern for Punjab and their only aim is to grab power by spreading lies and canards”.

Urging the NRIs to give suggestions as to how their problems back home can be tackled, Capt. Amarinder said the Congress would include these its poll manifesto. He said, if voted to power, he would have a “high powered” NRI cell in the Chief Minister’s office, which would monitor their complaints and ensure timely solutions. He reiterated his commitment to setup fast track courts for NRIs’ cases. -GP

It will be displayed alongside complimentary Gouache paintings and woodcut prints that depict Lord Ganesha in traditional scenes.

According to reports, this exhibition is divided into three themes: key beliefs of Hinduism, Hindu worship and Lord Ganesha. It will also include interactives for children, music, films, traditional Indian clothing, items for children to try on, rangoli patterns, a story area, craft table and puja tray holding seven items—a bell, lamp, incense holder and incense, water container and spoon, powder container, blessed food and a statue. There will also be a Hindu shrine, illustrating how one might be set up in the home.

Commending Bowes Museum for showcasing Lord Ganesha in sculpture, paintings and prints; distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that art had a long and rich tradition in Hinduism and ancient Sanskrit literature talked about religious paintings of deities on wood or cloth.

Chandigarh, May 4, 2016: Former Punjab Chief Minister and PPCC President, Capt. Amarinder Singh, has offered to provide NRI Punjabi doctors, specially psychiatrists and therapists, infrastructure to set up de-addiction centers within the existing government hospitals in all major cities of Punjab, once Congress is voted to power in the state.
Addressing a large gathering of Punjabi diaspora from Central Califonia at Fresno on Tuesday, Capt. Amarinder urged the NRI doctors to work in partnership with him for the rehabilitation of lakhs of drug-addicted Punjab’s youths. “We would provide you with infrastructure in the existing government hospitals in Patiala, Amritsar, Ludhiana and Jalandhar and all other facilities so that you don’t need to waste time in constructing buildings and clinics”, he said adding that all he needed from them was their expertise for the rehabilitation of Punjabi youths.

Regretting that Punjab only has 11 psychiatrists on role, Capt. Amarinder said counselling is a major part of de-addiction process and psychiatrists and therapists have a crucial role in treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioural disorders of addicts. “We need your help to get our youth back in the mainstream”, he said.

Capt. Amarinder said he had a very fruitful discussion with a group of Fresno based Punjabi NRI doctors, who were willing to help, without even charging any money, but were apprehensive of the red tape and lengthy formalities required to start such operations. He said he had assured them that if Congress were voted to power, they would face no such problems.

Responding to questions, Capt. Amarinder said he would have a three-pronged strategy to stop sale and distribution of drugs in Punjab. “Firstly we would take strictest action against manufacturers and distributors of synthetic drugs and if needed, we would involve the Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax authorities to break their backs”, he said adding that this all would done within the first four weeks of his government.

He said he would also push for formulation of a comprehensive National Drug Policy to end ambiguity of state laws that allow growth and distribution of psychotropic drugs in some states. “Finally I would also pursue with the centre for restricting the posting tenures of BSF personnel at Pak borders to one year, so as to mitigate any chances of them forming a nexus with Pak Rangers for facilitating drug smuggling”, he said.

When asked as to how he proposes to deal with corruption in Punjab, Capt. Amarinder said during the first session on the assembly, his government would enact a strong Lokpal Act, under which the Lokpal would have the independence to take suo moto cognizance of reports and complaints of corruption against anyone - from Chief Minister and downwards.

Making an emotional appeal to the judiciary in India, Capt. Amarinder Singh said the Supreme Court, which is due to deliver its judgement on the presidential reference on Punjab Termination of Agreements Act (PTAA), should first assess on its own whether Punjab has enough water to share with others or not. “An adverse judgement on PTAA, which cancelled all water sharing agreements with neighbouring states, would be disastrous for Punjab, as 9 lakh acres of land in Malwa would go dry. This would lead to a major law and order problem”, he said.

When asked what stand does the Congress high command have on the SYL issue, Capt. Amarinder said, “this matter concerns Punjab and we would fight it on our own”. He said expecting the Congress high command to have any stand on the issue is unjustified, as the party has interests in other sates too.

Replying to a question on the controversy over the conversion of Khalsa College into a University, Capt. Amarinder said his party would never allow this. “Khalsa College is a historic and a heritage institution and if the Badals convert it into a university, his government would repeal the Act”, he said amidst chairs from a large number of Khalsa college alumni who were present at the interaction. -GP

Chandigarh, May 4, 2016:
Haryana Minister of State for Mines and Geology Nayab Singh Saini said that about 60 per cent mining blocks in the state have been made functional and government would soon allocate some new blocks through e-tendering.
The Minister, who was talking to media persons here on Wednesday, said that mining had been discontinued Haryana for the last about 10 years as a result of which people had to get construction material from other states on high prices. As the government is receiving approval concerning environment and other such aspects, mining blocks are being opened.
Saini said that earlier mining tenders used to be floated for the entire district during the regime of previous government but the present government had completed the tender process by creating small blocks so as to ensure transparency in the entire procedure.
On being asked to comment on the arrest being made regarding incident of violence during reservation agitation, he said that no action is being taken on any innocent person. Action is being taken against those found guilty only after investigating the facts.
In reply to another question, the Minister said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Chandigarh on June 21. The same day, about 40,000 persons will perform yoga with him. He said that yoga has been promoted in the world with the consistent efforts of Prime Minister and Baba Ramdev.
Earlier, the Minister heard grievances of the people and directed the concerned officers for their quick redressal.

Chandigarh, May 3: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had proved its treacherous nature by withdrawing even the second supposedly neutral affidavit it submitted to the Supreme Court after withdrawing the first blatantly pro-Haryana affidavit on the SYL canal issue.

In a statement here today, SAD spokesman Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said the recent withdrawal of the second affidavit proved that AAP and its Convenor Arvind Kejriwal had no seriousness towards Punjab or its farmers. " If one is to see the present trend the day is not far when the AAP government in Delhi will file a third, fourth of even a fifth affidavit as per what suits the government on that particular date".

Dr Cheema said the sequence of events under which the second affidavit was withdrawn had also exposed the Delhi government and proved that Arvind Kejriwal had lied to Punjabis by claiming that the Delhi government counsel had filed the first pro- Haryana affidavit without consulting the government. "The AAP government caved in immediately when the counsel Mr Suresh Tripathy challenged this lie in the apex court", he added.

Terming this behaviour as making a mockery of both politics as well as the judicial system, the SAD asked Kejriwal to spell out his stand on the SYL canal. "Your first affidavit supported Haryana by saying the SYL should be constructed. Your second affidavit tried to confuse the issue by stating you only wanted your share of water and that it was up to Punjab and Haryana to decide how it lands in your State Delhi. You termed this affidavit as neutral even though everyone knows if you are to get water as per the 1976 reference as demanded by you it can be only through the medium of the SYL canal".

The SAD leader said that this latest act of treachery would spell doom for AAP as people of Punjab had seen through the political gimmicks of the party and would never trust it again. He said the latest withdrawal of a sworn affidavit had proven that AAP could do anything for petty gains. He said it had also proven that Arvind Kejriwal was a master chameleon who could change statements and even affidavits as and when it suited him.

The SAD leader said AAP had also challenged the pride of Punjabis through repeated betrayals on the SYL canal as well as host of other issues. "Now Punjabis are convinced they you will never stand with them on the SYL issue as you have refused to show any commitment to their cause. In direct contrast Punjabis know of the stand taken by chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on this issue and know that it will never be diluted, forget ever being changed", Dr Cheema added.-GP....

• Strict instructions against registration of false cases

• Calls for stopping corruption at Thana level

• Asks to shift personnel serving at one place for long duration

• Conducts review meeting with SSPs of all districts


Chandigarh, May 3: The Punjab Deputy Chief Minister, S. Sukhbir Singh Badal has issued strict instructions to the Punjab Police to register cases against drug lords operating in state and attach their properties. He gave the deadline of a month to break supply chain of drug smugglers and put them behind bars.
Chairing a review meeting of SSPs of all the districts here today, the Deputy Chief Minister said it should be ensured that no cases are registered against innocent people and corruption should be rooted out at thana level. He said that as part of a specialized campaign against drugs, people must be made aware at village level and at ward level in urban areas and also police officers from ADGP to SP rank should hold public meetings and exhort people to co-operate in eliminating drug menace.
S. Badal further asked for total diligence and devotion to duty on the part of police personnel to put a complete stop to the cross border infiltration of narcotics. Calling for spreading awareness in masses about 181 helpline number, he instructed that the names of people giving information about drugs should be kept confidential and they be rewarded with Rs. 10000 cash prize. He said that war against drugs cannot be won without the cooperation of people.
The Deputy Chief Minister instructed the SSPs to form 5 member police-public co-operation committees at village and city level to create awareness and curb the activities of anti-social elements. He also gave the target of covering 3000 villages of the state in 6 months for this purpose. He also laid stress on organizing of conducting awareness camps in educational institutions to keep youth away from drugs and anti-social forces.
Coming to other aspects, S. Badal said that the officials who are stationed at one place for a very long time should be immediately transferred and also that ‘Black Sheeps’ in the police department be identified and strongly proceeded against. Strongly advocating the need for establishing ‘Nakas’ during night, he gave orders regarding putting this into practice besides instructing that the vehicles used for surveillance at night must be equipped with GPS facility. He also emphasized deploying CCTV cameras at the sensitive and vulnerable spots in the cities in order to curb crime.
During the meeting, DGP, Punjab, Mr. Suresh Arora apprised the Deputy Chief Minister that 34000 points have been identified throughout the state to deploy CCTV cameras and 5000 cameras have even been made operational with the help of field officers.

Zira(Ferozepur) May 3, 2016: In protest against hike inpetrol and diesel prices by the Central government, Youth Congress workers burn the effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Sheran Wala Chowk at Zira under the tutelage of Kulbir Singh Zira, Senior Vice President, Youth Congress Punjab.
Speaking on this occasion, Kulbir Singh Zira said, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised for ‘Achhe Din’ – Good Days – before coming into power but it looks that ‘Bad Days’ have started after formation of his government. There had been maximum inflation of essential commodities during his tenure.

Zira said, the hike in fuel prices is likely to affect all other commodities with the increase of transportation rates simultaneously. There is a great resentment among all categories of people.
Talking about the Punjab’s farmers, he said, the Punjab’s farmer is already under heavy debts and hands to mouth condition and with the increase of fuel prices, the farmers community will also be heavily burdened.
He said, the Centre and State governments are not coming forward to help the farmers and there is continued committing of suicides by them.
The tall claims of Chief Minister, Punjab on the stages during his speeches are confined to speeches only, he added.
The price of the produce by the farmer is decided by the Price Commission of India but the position is adverse as even the cost of the crop upto harvesting is not compensated, what to talk of profits.
Lambasting over the government, he said, the government is promoting the corporate houses only. The essential commodities like dals, onion etc. are stored by the traders and later on sell at their own fixed prices.
Large number of youth workers was present on this occasion to register their protest.

New Delhi, May 3, 2016: Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, Minister of Railways during a function held at Rail Bhawan today i.e. 03.05.2016 launched one E-enabled project, namely, Project Management & Information System (PMIS). Shri Manoj Sinha, Minister of State for Railways was especially present on the occasion. Railways Board Members and other dignitaries were also present on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said that the Indian Railways has numerous big projects throughout the country which are of crores of rupees and have many complexities. He said that proper monitoring and management of these big projects is the demand of the Indian Railways. He said that to provide best railway network in the country, Indian Railways needs two things; one is money and the second is proper monitoring of projects in which that money is to be spent. He said that it is necessary to keep proper monitoring and management of the existing projects instead of keep on launching new projects. He said that this new PMIS system will contain all the information about the ongoing projects which will help in reducing the completion time of the project. He said that when, on the one side, this new Application will help in fixing the responsibility for delay in projects on the other hand officers would be awarded for timely/early completion of projects.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister of State for Railways Shri Manoj Sinha said that this E-Enables Application will, certainly, be able to reduce the completion time of the project which will save money and ultimate will benefit Railways economically. He emphasized on the need of digitalization so that there can be proper monitoring of the lifecycle of the projects.

Salient Features of the Application: -

Indian Railways have over 600 major projects of network expansion and modernization costing around Rs 4.5 lakh crores.Now Railways have adopted approach of funding the projects through market borrowing (Institutional funding) to set its network expansion on high growth path. Capex increased from Rs 58 thousand crores in 2014-15 to Rs 93 thousand crores in 2015-16 and we have pegged our capex at Rs 1 lakh 21 thousand crores in 2016-17.In terms of commissioning/ addition of network, commissioning of over 2800 km Broad Gauge lines in 2015-16 against about 2000 Km in 2014-15 and against an average of 1529 Km per year in the preceding five years. In next 4 years, ambitious targets for commissioning of about 14 thousand kilometer BG track has been set.

Project Management and Information System (PMIS) is a step towards that direction. It is a web-enabled IT- Application to create a technology and knowledge platform to manage the entire lifecycle of complex railway projects. It is a step in leveraging resources and to empower railways & stakeholders in transforming the way projects are designed, built and commissioned.

PMIS is being implemented in the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramullah Rail Link (USBRL) Project as it has complexities of fragile geological formations and unstable geomorphology of young Himalayan Mountains, needing extensive investigation and treatment, extremely steep slopes and rugged terrain, coupled with inclement weather – project alignment remains snowbound for entire winter season and high seismicity.

Hence, it was decided to use information and communication technology to create a consolidated knowledge repository which will result in collaborative innovation, transparency and accountability. DroneRecording and CCTV coverage is being implemented as part of monitoring. PMIS comprises of various integrated modules Project Information and Collaboration Management Dashboard, Geology and Geographic Information, Tunnel, Bridge, Embankment, Yard & Station Design, and as-built drawings integrated with 3D models, Drawing& Document Management Workflow, Linear Project Management – Planning, Scheduling and Monitoring, Monitoring using drones equipped with video cameras and fixed CCTV cameras at construction sites,Contract and Claim Management, Budgeting and Cost Monitoring, Incident Management, Asset Management and user Management.

It is planned to roll out PMIS to all the major projects across the country. Benefits expected to be accrued from bringing all the projects on PMIS platform include online monitoring and mid-course correction to ensure faster execution, repository of design, drawings, resources, schedules etc. will help in better estimation and planning, improved designs and standardization of drawings, Optimal utilization of resources and faster decision making. -GP....

Ferozepur, May 3, 2016: Krantikari Manuvadi Morcha (KMM) Party President, R K Bhardwaj, Initiator of None Of The Above (NOTA) after covering various states in the country, who was here today in Ferozepur – a border town of Punjab, to call upon the voters to be sincere and cautious in the forthcoming Assembly elections for the use of last button of NOTA introduced by the Election Commission of India, cautiously to express their displeasure.
The idea of the NOTA initiator is to ensure voting for the right candidate and in case none is suitable then press only the last button – NOTA, to express their displeasure and open the path of ‘Cancellation of subject election in particular constituency and ensuring nomination of ideally acceptable candidates by various parties in future.
R.K.Bhardwaj, has served in Air Force as Electrical Engineer for 14 years and after retirement, running his own Power House Sub Station industry at Noida. He became active after the Mandal Commission when people were protesting against the reservation and fighting against this evil – reservation – like cancer. Since 1989, he is working on three issues, NOTA, Reservation and Defection and visits every state well before the election to put wiser the voters about the use of NOTA button.
Speaking to this correspondent, R K Bhardwaj said, Right voting is the holiest act in democracy and NOTA should be pressed only if none of the candidates is suitable. Voters should not blindly follow any trend based on fictitious and flimsy propaganda.
The Government should include strengthening of NOTA in its immediate programme for cleansing the politics besides clearing garbage of India for proving its sincerity because clean politics will automatically clean India, he added.
On Right to Reject and Right to Call, Bhardwaj further said, it took more than 16 years to adopt it in the shape of a last button. In the event of use of NOTA button, the political parties will be forced to nominate the candidates with clean background. But, the Election Commission of India has played a cruel joke with the voters with the introduction of use of NOTA button without any power.
If you want to keep the corrupt leaders out of the race in politics, then re-election with the powers on use of NOTA will not be a costly affair.
Talking about the reservation, Bhardwaj said, the reservation is killing our society which may cause civil war between reservation and non-reservation.
When asked about its solution, he confidently said, caste based reservation should be replaced by free facility to poor students irrespective of any caste, creed and religion.
Stressing about the complete ban on defection (dal badal) by the political leaders, Bhardwaj said, there is need of complete ban on defection and compulsory resignation from MP/MLA seat before changing the party in order to totally curb the ‘horse trading’.
Lastly, Bhardwaj said, R.D.Bhardwaj, his grandfather was an associate of Shaheed Bhagat Singh and even after ten years of independence of India, he was not released from jail put by the then loyalist Prime Minister, Jawahar Lal Nehru. I have revolutionary blood in my veins and I will not die before bring the true revolution in the country which will be a real tribute to the martyrs. In case, we don’t get the motivation from the martyrs, then our freedom will be like a sun-set.

Water Minister and Chairman of Delhi Jal Board Kapil Mishra said, “The Delhi Government will not tolerate any water mafia in the city and will strongly act against anyone who violates the right of our citizens to free and clean drinking water.

Chandigarh, May 3, 2016: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh today asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as why was he being selective in reaching out to the families of the farmers committing suicide.

"For heaven's sake stop celebrating tragedies", he told the Delhi CM, while referring to the Aam Aadmi Party's announcement that it will adopt the children of the farmer who committed suicide in Barnala over his inability to repay the debt.

Capt Amarinder pointed out that there were hundreds and hundreds of farmers who had committed suicide and their families also needed relief and rehabilitation. "While providing relief to the Barnala farmer's family is a nice gesture, will you also spell out as what you plan to do for other families whose earning heads also committed suicide?"he asked Kejriwal.

The PCC president told the AAP and its leader that instead of resorting to theatrics and photo-ops, he should better come out with a plan for providing relief to the farmers. "Agriculture is too serious and sensitive an issue for someone like you to understand", he told Delhi CM, while pointing towards his lack of knowledge and experience about agricultural matters, or for that matter, the matters of governance as a whole.

Capt Amarinder said, the agriculture problem in Punjab is too serious to be solved by photo ops and theatrics. "You need a comprehensive policy and planning", he said, while adding, "we have already mooted a law to prevent dispossession of debt ridden farmers' land or property as a first step". He said, had such a law been in place the Barnala farmer, whose family Mr Kejriwal is planning to visit, would not have been forced to commit suicide.

"From past experience we know you are fond of selling and celebrating tragedies to get a photo op as you did after the attack on Pathankot airbase and you are doing it now", Capt Amarinder told Mr Kejriwal, adding, "this is not the time to sell somebody's tragedy and make political capital out of it, but seriously think and come out with plans and measures that can prevent further suicides and loss of precious lives".

He pointed out, while Mr Kejriwal visited the two martyrs in Punjab, he completely forgot others, including one from his own state. -GP....

Chandigarh, May 3, 2016 (Courtesy: HT) : Days after refusing the post of chief parliamentary secretary (CPS), former Indian hockey captain and SAD’s Jalandhar Cantonment MLA Pargat Singh on Monday surprised everyone when he turned up to attend a meeting to discuss spreading party’s reach on social media.
After making it clear to the party brass about his resentment by not attending the CPS swearing-in ceremony on April 28, Pargat attended the meeting where party’s senior leaders, including MLAs Ajit Singh Kohar, Gurpartap Wadala, Avinash Chandar and Sarwan Singh Phillaur, were present. Pargat though arrived half-anhour late at the meeting.
“Initially, the Akali leaders concluded that Pargat won’t come. But he turned up at 11:30am to surprise everyone,” said an MLA.
Pargat was active in the meeting and gave suggestions on how the party should deal with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) onslaught against the SAD in the virtual world.
The meeting was chaired by party spokesperson and education minister Dr Daljeet Cheema and deputy CM’s adviser and Delhi SAD leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa. Sources said Sirsa had come out with a detailed “counter strategy” to tackle the AAP on social media, especially Facebook and WhatsApp. Pargat, sources said, pointed out in the meeting that there was need to come out with a strategy to counter online campaigns against SAD on “drugs and sand mining”.
The MLA, when contacted by this correspondent, confirmed having attended the meeting and said he got the invite two days back. “But it does not mean that my concerns over the solid waste management plant have ended. My stand is clear and I won’t allow the plant in my constituency,” said the MLA.

Neither summer nor winter can deter me from my mission to serve people
Asks people to keep vigilant eye over development works
Expecting Kejriwal to safeguard Punjab’s interests would be utterly farce
CM concludes his three day Sangat Darshan Program in Lambi

Lambi, May 3, 2016: Terming the river waters as the lifeline of the people of the state, the Chief Minister Punjab Mr. Parkash Singh Badal called upon them to be prepared to face any tough battle in the near future to safeguard their rights over the contentious issue river waters.
Addressing the people on the last leg of his three-day Sangat Darshan program held here in Lambi assembly constituency, Mr. Badal said that the issue of river waters was not merely restricted to farming community rather it was associated with the overall development and prosperity of the state. He said that if the state was robbed off its water, its fertile lands will turn into desert and not only the farming community, the entire economy of the state would be in doldrums.
Describing agriculture as the backbone of state's economy, he said that the farm laborers, commission agents, traders and even industrialists would be adversely affected and thus appealed the people to leave no stone unturned to safeguard the state’s legitimate right over its river waters.
Making people aware of the Congress' role in robbing state off its water, the Chief Minister said that Congress led governments never missed any opportunity to divest the people from their rightful share in their river waters and the incumbent Chief of state Congress Captain Amarinder Singh has played pivotal role in this. Talking about the issue of SYL canal's construction he said that the then Prime Minister of India Mrs. Indira Gandhi had laid foundation stone of project and Captain Amarinder Singh has welcomed this step amid great fanfare and gaiety. At that time too, the Akali Dal strongly raised its voice against this apathetic attitude and discriminatory treatment meted out to Punjab and now same sequence of events were happening once again. Answering a media query Mr. Badal said that as per the Riparian Rules Punjab has exclusive rights over its waters and not even a drop will be spared with anyone. He added that Rajasthan was given Punjab's water in an unjustified and arbitrary manner and the then Central government never took Punjab into confidence while deciding this crucial issue.
Ridiculing the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for its stand on the water issue, the Chief Minister said that the real face of AAP has been fully exposed with the affidavit it filed in court over the issue. He said that in its affidavit the Delhi government has stated Punjab's stand on the issue as unconstitutional and against the interests of nation and even stated that this decision of Punjab may lead to disintegration of country. He said that Mr. Arvind Kejriwal belonged to the state of Haryana and his affinity for the state was natural and thus expecting Kejriwal to safeguard Punjab rights would be utterly farce.
Talking about the importance of holding Sangat Darshan programs Mr. Badal said that it was the best example of democracy. In this democratic set up, people are offered help as per their need. He added that besides saving efforts and time, the main purpose of Sangat Darshan program to ensure people's participation in developmental projects. He added that his primary duty was to solve people's problems at their doorstep. Holding Sangat Darshan in sweltering hot summer, Mr. Badal said though the doctors have advised him to stay away from excessive hot or cold weather, but such weather cannot dissuade him from meeting his goals and he will keep on performing his duty. He said that Sangat Darshan programs are held only in Punjab and that too is limited till the time SAD-BJP government was serving the people of state. He added that in a democratic set up, to ensure people's participation, Sangat Darshan was the most instrumental concept. In Sangat Darshan people's problems are resolved on merit basis and the officers concerned are held responsible for the works. He added that Congress and other parties tried to stop the Sangat Darshan program through courts but the courts too have endorsed this initiative.
Calling upon people to ensure their participation in developmental works, he said that people should themselves keep an eye on the works. He added that besides ensuring timely completion of project the quality of work too is improved and any kind of discrepancy in project implementation can also be checked. While keeping an eye on the project, people also realize their duties.
The Chief Minister announced grants for panchayats of villages Khera, Sheranwala, Fatuhi Khera, Sikh Wala, Punjawa, Reranwali, Lambi and Nambardar Patti while holding Sangat Darshan of these villages.
Prominent among others present included MLA Mr. Harpreet Singh, Punjab Agro Chairman Jathedar Dyal Singh Kolianwali, SAD District Coordinator Mr. Avtar Singh Vanwala, Chairman Mr. Tejinder Singh Middukhera, Puncofed Chairman Mr. Kulwinder Bhai Ka Kera and others. -GP....
