District Presidents of Akali Dal asked to keep traditions of Sikhism alive

Maluka’s advice to Deepinder Dhillon: Keep beard intact & be true Jathedar

Chandigarh : The Celebrations organized by newly appointed District President of SAD of Patiala Deepinder Singh Dhillon brought him an additional responsibility of keeping his beard intact and allow it to grow in the natural process.

Chandigarh : The Celebrations organized by newly appointed District President of SAD of Patiala Deepinder Singh Dhillon brought him an additional responsibility of keeping his beard intact and allow it to grow in the natural process. The advice in this regard was given by the Patiala District Incharge & Punjab Minister Sikander Singh Maluka to Deepinder Singh Dhillon on this occasion. Responding positively to the advice of Maluka, Dhillon assured to consider this issue seriously. It is not yet known as to whether Maluka gave this advice to Deepinder Dhillon in his personal capacity or as a policy of Akali Dal which has the tradition of appointing District Presidents with beards as a unique identity of Sikhism.
Since the inception of Akali Dal in 1920, the Akali Dal leaders are normally baptized but this condition was relaxed and at-least the senior leaders of the party must be beard bearing with unique Sikh identity. After 1995 Moga Akali Dal Conference, the SAD started giving party tickets for Assembly & Lok Sabha Elections to such leaders with no such condition of beard. It happened for the first time that five districts Jathedars are non-Sikhs. It has been taken as a surprise in Sikh circles. The allotment of ticket to a beard-cut Sikh was first given by Parkash Singh Badal in 1994 to his nephew Manpreet Singh Badal in Gidderbaha assembly by-elections.

Though, the advice of Sikander Singh Maluka to Deepinder Singh Dhillon might be in line with the ideology and tradition of Akali Dal yet it seems an illogical step as there are various Akali Dal leaders who are beard cut & still holding important positions in the Government as well as in the party. The political observers feel as to why this condition was only imposed on Deepinder Singh Dhillon who belongs to a well reputed Patiala family. His father was a High Court Judge and Grandfather a Barrister who was invited by the Britain Queen for a meeting which was a great honour for the Sikh community. Deepinder Singh Dhillon who is active in politics for the last 10 to 12 years and holds good reputation in the area had bagged 51,000 votes as an Independent candidate in 2012 assembly elections. It is good that Akali Dal revives its old traditions set by its founding fathers but at the same time it gives a chance for debate that such conditions should be enforced on all the SAD leaders who are holding important positions in the Government and the party.

Amritsar, September 15: In the backdrop of Scotland going for referendum on Thursday, the Dal Khalsa said it displays the political maturity of the UK in allowing Scottish people to have its say in shaping their destiny.

Party head H S Dhami and spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh in a statement said like Canada that granted people of the Quebec province twice the right to self-determination, the UK with heavy heart has allowed Scot people to go for referendum thus showing to the world the level of maturity its democracy has reached. They asserted that in principle, Sikhs support movements for Sovereignty irrespective of place, religion and race.

Dal Khalsa, which has good number of sympathizers and supporters in UK and Europe said without firing a single bullet a new nation could be born on September 18th in case the majority of the people there wishes so.

Praising the UK for setting healthy democratic precedent, they said on one hand UK has allowed the people of Scotland to exercise their right through referendum while on other side the leadership was appealing to the same people not to tear apart the UK family (nation).

Comparing the mindset and attitude of the Indian leadership with UK, they said Indian state has always crushed and suppressed all legitimate struggles for right to self determination with its sheer militarily might. They rue that Indian state has always tried to find military solution to various political problems. They urged the Indian Prime Minister Narendar Modi to take cue from governments of Canada and UK and allow the people of Punjab, Kashmir and Nagaland to exercise their right to self determination without spilling bloodshed of struggling peoples.

They informed the media about their representative talking with some Scottish Sikhs who are taking active part in the referendum campiagn. They said one of the activists Charandeep Singh has apprised us that “majority of the Sikhs support YES vote and that is the beauty of the system we are living under”, claimed Kanwar Pal Singh.....

Chandigarh, September 15: Gearing up for the forthcoming local bodies elections in the state, the Punjab Congress today demanded total transparency in the process for the delimitation of the wards by making it online. The party submitted a memorandum to this effect to the Governor, Shivraj Patil and the Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal.

The situation was reviewed by the state party chief Partap Singh Bajwa at the meeting of the district presidents followed by that of the heads of frontal organisations. Both these meetings were attended by the party’s national Secretary, Harish Chaudhary, who had come from Delhi especially for this purpose.

The mobilisation of the party at the grass root level would begin with the meetings of the office bearers in every district to be addressed by Bajwa.

The PPCC chief said the party would take up property tax, delay in issuance of NOCs for property registration and other issues concerning the urban population including the pathetic condition of roads and insanitation to aggressively confront the Akali Dal-BJP combine.

Bajwa said fissures were already discernible between the Akali Dal and the BJP on several issues which would be fully exploited by the Congress.

In the memorandum to the Governor and the Chief Minister which was signed by the PPCC chief and the district presidents, the party slammed the Badal government for not giving representation to it in the process of formation of wards. The entire process was being done in a most clandestine and secretive manner. No information regarding the proposed wards was being supplied to the Congress in the Municipal Council or Municipal Corporation despite repeated demands in this respect.

The memorandum alleged the delimitation of wards was being done as per the whims and fancies of the leaders, halqa incharges and office bearers and workers of the Akali Dal and BJP. These leaders were playing havoc with the entire delimitation process, as they were dictating terms and bullying the decision making process with ulterior motives of helping their own party candidates.

The party demanded that in the interest of level playing field and fair play, it was imperative to provide the information to the general public and the opposition political parties. In an order to provide total transparency, the delimitation of wards should be made available online which would provide proper opportunity to the general public and concerned persons including the other political parties to file objections against the proposed delimitation if any.

Bajwa asserted that the party would come out victorious in these elections as the people were fed up with false promises and lack of development.

Those who participated in the meeting Sh. Rajiv Bhagat (Advocate) President, DCC (Aitsar Urban), Sh. Gurjit Singh Aujla President, DCC (Aitsar Rural), Sh. Sukhjinder S Randhawa, MLA President, DCC (Gurdaspur), Sh. Anil Vij President, DCC (Patahankot), Sh.

Chandigarh, September 15: The Punjab Congress President, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa, today held the Chief Minister, Mr Parkash Singh Badal, for the havoc caused by heavy rains in the districts of Muktsar and Abohar while attributing to the situation to the criminal neglect of the recommendations submitted last year to solve the problem.

In a statement, Mr Bajwa pointed out that despite the fact that Lt General B S Dhaliwal (Retd), Technical Advisor to the Chief Minister, submitted his report to the state government after studying the problem last year following the damage due to heavy rains, no action was taken by the government.

“This amounts to criminal apathy of the Badal government towards the plight of the people. This is despite the fact that the UPA government had allocated Rs. 850 crore to the state government to solve the problem”, he added.

The PPCC chief pointed out that the recommendations submitted to the government were wide ranging which included re-alignment of the drains and change in cropping pattern. What to talk of re-alignment of drains, these were not even cleaned complicating the problem this year. This government had refused to learn any lesson.

He said the state administration was virtually paralysed and non-functional while the political leadership was just indifferent to the problems being faced by the people at large. The only aim of the rulers in the state was to fill their coffers.

He slammed the Chief Minister for being hypocrite by way of misleading the people by making false promises whenever they faced such critical situations and this had been going on almost year after year. He asserted that it was for this reason that he had dubbed it as criminal apathy.

Mr Bajwa the situation was all the more serious in the cotton belt. Last year, scores of houses were damaged. However, the government continued to betray its indifference despite the fact that a number of recommendations were made by the Technical Advisor handpicked by Mr Badal himself.

He demanded immediate steps to deal with the situation so that it was not repeated next year.....

Chandigarh, September 15: Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today urged the Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Virbhadra Singh to seek his direct and personal intervention for jointly putting up an effective monitoring mechanism in place for the cleaning of river Ghaggar on top priority in a mission mode.
In a letter to Mr. Virbhadra Singh, the Chief Minister apprised him about the deterioration of the water quality of river Ghaggar in Punjab, adding he said that it had been reportedly brought to his notice regarding the discharge of domestic sewage generated from the territorial jurisdiction of Himachal Pradesh area. He further pointed out that the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) has conducted survey of river Ghaggar to check the various sources of pollution entering into river Ghaggar. It has also been observed that untreated/partially treated industrial effluents and sewage of Nahan, Parwanoo and Kala Amb areas enter into river Ghaggar through various streams, choes, drains etc., which were a major source of contamination of water quality of the river Ghaggar. Henceforth, Mr. Badal immediately sought HP Chief Minister’s directions to the officers of concerned departments of Himachal Pradesh for taking immediate steps to check the discharge of untreated/partially treated domestic and industrial wastewater of the said areas into drains/nallahs which ultimately entered river Ghaggar so as to control the pollution thereof.
In view of the grave situation, the Chief Minister emphasized the need to evolve a joint monitoring mechanism comprising the officers of the departments concerned from both the states for preparing a time bound joint action plan to check and control pollution in the river Ghaggar.

Ferozepur, September 15: Ultimately, the education department sleeping over the posting of hundreds of teachers in the district or block level offices, ignoring the study of the children in equal number of schools in the state.
Taking a bold decision by Dr.Daljit Singh Cheema, Education Minister and DGSE, have ordered the shifting of officials working in the offices to shift them to their parent schools.
The action taken by the education department and ministry keeping aside the politics is commendable.
On the one hand, the education department is facing shortage of teachers whereas a good number of teachers have been deployed in the offices of District Education Officers and Block Primary Education Officers for getting the clerical work. With the issue of reversing such officials to work as teacher in the schools, vide DGSE orders dated September 9, has put a big question mark over the liability of engaging qualified staff for Management Information System (MIS).
In this context, DEO Primary vide its orders No.464-74 issued on September 9, 2014, as many as 46 officials (ETT teachers) working at the block level have been relieved to join in their parent schools.
Now the question is as to whether they teach in their respective schools or the education department again becomes the victim of politicians to post them back in the offices.

Fazilka/Abohar, September 15 : Batting for ‘faultless execution’ of the master plan prepared for eradicating the menace of water logging from the state, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today termed it as ‘panacea of all ills’ for the water logged districts of the state.
Winding up his three-day whirlwind tour in the rain affected water logged districts of the state, the Chief Minister said that the existing master plan conceived by the state government last year, after minutely observing the gravity of situation in water logged areas, would permanently wipe out this grave problem, which causes huge loss every year. He said that the need of the hour was to immediately accomplish the task of relief and rehabilitation in the rain affected water logged districts for resuming the ongoing work initiated under this master plan in a planned manner. Mr. Badal also asked the Secretary Irrigation Mr. Kahan Singh Pannu to personally supervise the implementation of this master plan, so that people could get a major reprieve.
In another significant decision, the Chief Minister also announced that under the proposed revamping of the drainage system of the state the Irrigation department has been directed to convert all the drains of the state into Flood Water Carrying drains. Terming it as the need of the hour, he said that from last few years the floods occurring due to the incessant rains in the water logged districts have been causing a lot of damage to the crops and properties of the residents, so the conversion of existing drains into flood water carrying drains was the need of the hour. Mr. Badal said that the banks of Flood water carrying drains would permanently lined against the temporary ones of existing drains so that loss to the crops of the residents could be minimized. He also directed the Irrigation department to prepare the estimate of the entire project within a month for its early execution.
Conceding to the demand raised by the Cabinet Minister Mr. Surjit Kumar Jiyani, the Chief Minister also announced that the state government would soon realign the Baam Drain, known as ‘sorrow of Fazilka’, due to the havoc caused by the excess rain water in this water logged area. He asked the Irrigation department to realign this drain, wherever needed, so that residents of the areas in and around Fazilka could be saved from the fury of floods. Mr. Badal also announced the creation of a separate division of the Irrigation department in Fazilka district, so that the work for prevention of floods could be undertaken efficiently.
The Chief Minister said that the state government was committed for the prompt rehabilitation of the affected areas due to which the work of reconstructing the damaged infra structure in the villages would be initiated within a month. Mr. Badal asked every department to submit the report of the damages within 10 days so that the process to renovate the damaged infra structure could be initiated at the earliest. “The herculean task of reconstructing the roads and other government buildings will be undertaken on war footing so that people do not face any sort of problem” he added.
Reiterating the firm commitment of state government to duly compensate the victims of this grave tragedy, the Chief Minister said that he has already asked the Financial Commissioner Revenue (FCR) to personally monitor the entire process of disbursing the compensation, so that people could be given relief in a prompt manner. He said that the Revenue department has been asked to evolve a foolproof mechanism to ensure that all the victims were able to get the compensation. “We will assess the entire damage to the standing crops and property meticulously so that the victims of this tragedy can be duly compensated for their loss” added Mr. Badal.
During his visit in village Shajrana, Khui Khera, Ghallu, Jhumia Wali, Dhraag Wala, Kundal, Bhglaan, Ramgarh, Gaddadob, Channan Khera and others, the Chief Minister had detailed interaction with the victims of water logging. He assured the people that the state government was making concerted efforts to bail them out in this hour of crisis.
The Chief Minister was accompanied by Cabinet Minister Mr. Surjit Kumar Jiyani, MLA Mr. Gurtej Singh, Lok Sabha MP Mr. Sher Singh Ghubaya, his Special Principal Secretary Mr. KJS Cheema, Secretary Irrigation Mr. Kahan Singh Pannu and Deputy Commissioner Mr. Manjit Singh Brar.
