Chandigarh, August 22 (Courtesy:HT): The co-ordination committee of government and municipal corporation employees held a convention of trade unions at Rose Club, Sector 16, here on Friday.
The delegates from 35 affiliated trade unions of Chandigarh attended the convention. Various long-pending demands of the UT employees were raised on the occasion.
The workers demanded regularisation of about 1,700 daily wages and work charged employees as per the direction of the Supreme Court. Rakesh Kumar, convenor of the committee, said these employees had been raising this demand for the past 25 to 30 years. He called for immediate effective measures at the earliest to overcome agony and grievances of the UT employees.
The committee also demanded framing of comprehensive and secure policy for regularisation of daily wages, work charged, contractual, guest faculty and part-time staff as one-time measure against sanctioned posts as per the instructions of the apex court.
The employees also asked the administration for implementation of the labour laws and acts, which include Factories Act, Minimum Wages Act, Industrial Disputes Act and Worker Compensation Act, giving benefits to the contract labour through outsourcing, besides the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act.
Rakesh said appointments on sanctioned posts should be made strictly as per statutory notified recruitment rules of the departments concerned under the control of Chandigarh administration to avoid exploitation and discrimination by making the stop-gap arrangements of engaging irregular employees in the form of daily wage, work charged, contractual, part-time, guest and outsourcing employees continuing long years indulging into forced litigation for survival and security of tenure in the absence and amendments of recruitment rules and draft recruitment rules of various departments since the formation of Chandigarh.
The committee also raised the demand for implementation of pension scheme for the Chandigarh Housing Board Employees.....

PU Dean Students Welfare (DSW) Prof Navdeep Goyal, DSW (Women) Prof Nandita, Chief Security Officer Dr Jatinder Grover also participated in the meeting.
Prof Grover asked the students leaders to ensure that no violence should occur as that affects the image of the University and job prospects of the thousands
of graduating students. He asked them to be considerate about the vast majority of the students, who are serious about achieving academic excellence and do not want their classes to be disturbed in any manner. He asked the student leaders to strictly follow the Lyngdoh and PU Guidelines issued from time to time. He also suggested the candidates should use the PU Radio for the election campaign as it would not affect the normal academic activities of the campus.
PU DSW Prof Navdeep Goyal informed the student leaders that Tents will not be allocated to students’ organisations this year as PU Elections are not contested
on the basis of students’ organisations. The Tents will only be allocated to candidates after the time of final withdrawal, he added. He informed the student leaders that any candidate forcibly disturbing any running class will stand disqualified from the elections.
Some students’ organisations raised the issue of Open House but finally all student organisations agreed that the atmosphere was not conducive for
organising the Open House.

Ludhiana, August 22: The Loomba Foundation, the UN accredited global NGO working exclusively for the cause of widows and their children, has launched a unique project together with the Punjab Government to empower 5000 widows in the state. Hon’ble Chief Minister of Punjab, Sardar Parkash Singh Badal, was the chief guest for the launch function held at Guru Nanak Dev Bhawan in Ludhiana. He, together with Lord Raj Loomba, the Founder and Chairman Trustee of The Loomba Foundation and Lady Loomba distributed sewing machines to some of the beneficiaries to formally kick-start the ‘Punjab Project for Empowerment of Widows.’ Renowned British philanthropists Mr. Graham and Mrs. Susan Tobbell as well as Mrs. Aruna Oswal, the India Trustee and Padamshri Vikramjit Singh, Patron of The Loomba Foundation were also present at the occasion to express their solidarity for the cause. Over 1000 people participated in the event, including senior ministers, elected representatives, senior bureaucrats, industrialists, media persons, beneficiaries and the general public.

Lord Raj Loomba said, “Having been born in Dhilwan, District Kapurthala and studying at the D.A.V. College in Jallandhar, I have always been connected to the soil of Punjab, no matter where my destiny has taken me. Even though I am a parliamentarian in the UK, and my Foundation works actively to bring widows out of abject poverty in different parts of the world including India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Kenya, Rwanda, Malawi, South Africa, Syria, and Guatemala, nothing gives me more joy than to see my own homeland joining hands for this cause so seriously. We celebrated India’s 68thIndependence Day last week, but we are yet to ensure financial independence for millions of our widows. I hope that this partnership with the Punjab Government proves to be just the beginning of a long relationship that aims to completely eradicate the stigma and the hardships associated with widowhood across Punjab and the entire Bharat. I therefore hope that other states in India will also come forward and join hands with The Loomba Foundation to empower widows with livelihoods.”
The first phase of ‘Punjab Project for Empowerment of Widows’ will cover 2000 poor widows in and around Ludhiana. Well-qualified trainers have already been identified across 19 different centres so that the project can take-off immediately. Upon successful completion of the training course for garment-making, each widow beneficiary will also be given a sewing machine. The purchase of sewing machines has already been completed through tender process and these will be supplied within a time frame of one month. The Punjab Government and The Loomba Foundation will also explore possibilities to provide employment opportunities for widows in the garment making industries in and around Ludhiana.
The second phase will aim to empower 3000 widows in the districts of Amritsar, Jalandhar, Mansa, Muktsar, Firozpur, Sangrur and Kapurthala. Five more districts are likely to be covered under the project later. The project also envisions to set-up a Rapid Advisory Group (RAG) amongst the local bodies which will seek to address the problems faced by widows and provide counsel and assistance to approach law enforcement agencies on a case to case basis.
‘The Punjab Project for Empowerment of Widows’ is a unique model which will be a milestone in the history of ‘Private-Public-Partnerships’. Such programs help empower the widows by making them financially-reliant and enable them to educate their children, support family members and lead a dignified life. The impact of this project is expected to be ten-fold, as each widow will be able educate three children on average, and in turn support six family members. Therefore, 50,000 people stand to benefit directly or indirectly from this project. Under the partnership, The Loomba Foundation and the Punjab Government have agreed to pool in a matching grant in their effort to make widows and their children economically independent and self-reliant.
The Loomba Foundation was instrumental in getting official recognition for 23rd June as International Widows Day from the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, five years after the Day was launched by the Foundation at the House of Lords in UK.

ABOUT THE LOOMBA FOUNDATION
The Loomba Foundation was established by Raj Loomba CBE and his wife Veena in the UK in 1997, in memory of Raj’s mother, Shrimati PushpaWati Loomba, who became a widow at an early age of 37 in 1954 in Punjab. She succeeded in educating her seven young children singlehandedly.
The Loomba Foundation promotes fundamental freedoms and human rights of widows and their children around the world, raising awareness of the gross injustices widows face and seeking to remove stigmas associated with widowhood.
The Loomba Foundation declared 23rd June as International Widows Day at the House of Lords in May, 2005, which was adopted by the United Nations in 2010.
The Loomba Foundation published a comprehensive Research Study on widows worldwide, which revealed that over 245 million widows and 500 million children around the world suffer in silence. The first edition of was presented to the UN Secretary General, HE Ban Ki Moon on 22nd June, 2010 followed by presentations to the President of India and the US Secretary of State. The Loomba Foundation collaborates with UN bodies, other NGOs, government officials, human rights advocates and prominent leaders to fight for the over 245 million widows worldwide who suffer prejudice and discrimination.
The Loomba Foundation seeks to bring about gender sensitive reform of national laws and policies, eradicating anti-widow superstitions, traditions, and social practices. It fosters gender equality and women’s empowerment by implementing poverty-reduction strategies and educational opportunities for the 42 million widows and their 100 million children in India.

New Delhi, August 22: Two days after she was released on court orders, civil rights activist Irom Chanu Sharmila was on Friday re-arrested by the police on fresh charges of attempt to commit suicide and forcibly taken away to a city hospital from a makeshift shelter where she was continuing her fast.
Media reports that "We have re-arrested her this morning and will produce her in the CJM court later in the day on charges of attempt to commit suicide (Section 309 of IPC)," Manipur ADG (Intelligence) Santosh Macherla said.
A local court in Imphal had on Tuesday absolved 42-year-old Sharmila of charges of attempt to commit suicide by means of fasting after which she walked out of a hospital-turned-prison on Wednesday.
"The court released her for her past act. Now she is again refusing to take food and water and resisting any medical check-up as well. Her health is deteriorating and now she will be kept at the same Jawahar Lal Nehru Hospital ward where she was kept earlier," Macherla said.
Her medical check-up will be done and she will be force fed once again through nose, he said.

Earlier in the day, she was forcibly taken away by the police to a city hospital from a makeshift shelter outside the hospital where she was continuing her fast after being released from detention.

Women police personnel took her to Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Science and Hospital for a medical-check-up after she refused to eat or drink, the police said.

Before she was whisked away this morning, officials had said that her condition was deteriorating.

They said doctors tried to feed her through nose but she refused and her health was deteriorating very fast.

The activist had refused to take food even after being released. The hospital where she was taken had served as her make-shift prison in the last several years.

Sharmila is on fast for the last 14 years demanding the withdrawal of Armed Forces Special Powers (Assam and Manipur) Act 1958.

After her release on Wednesday, Sharmila had begun her fast at a place near the hospital. Even after her release, the former journalist-cum-social activist had decided to keep her vow of neither entering her house nor meeting her mother till the government repeals AFSPA.

"I will continue to fast till my demand (withdrawal of AFSPA) is met. The order of the sessions court that I am not attempting to commit suicide (by launching fast to remove the controversial Act) is welcome," she had said.

She had launched her fast unto death on November 2000 after Assam Rifles killed 10 persons at Malom area here in an alleged encounter with insurgents.

For the last many years, she was released from time to time and rearrested again and again under the provisions of the Indian Penal Code for attempting to commit suicide. ....

Chandigarh, August 22 (Courtesy: HT) : Even as student polls’ date is yet to be finalised, widespread violence was witnessed on the Panjab University campus on Thursday. Though no one was seriously injured, at least three vehicles were damaged and subsequently two FIRs registered. The number of FIRs in the run up to the polls this year has gone up to 11.
The claims of the university administration over security arrangements fell flat as three vehicles driven by leaders and supporters of National Students Union of India (NSUI) were damaged on the campus. The attackers freely used iron rods, sickles and wooden sticks, but the occupants of the vehicles escaped only with minor injuries. The Thursday violence was an outcome of a spat between the members of Gandhi Group Student Union (GGSU) and NSUI late on Wednesday. The incident had been brought to the notice of the authorities and a meeting between the members of both the factions was to take place on Thursday to resolve the issue.
According to the eyewitnesses, the attackers (about 25 in number) entered the campus in three vehicles around 1 pm, brandishing batons and rods. They stopped near hostel number 4 where girls supporting NSUI were protesting. The attackers’ target was the car of NSUI leader Manoj Lubana, who saved his life by fleeing from the spot.

Speaking to HT, Simran, one of the protesting girls, said, “We were sitting outside the hostel gate, when suddenly an Toyota Innova turned up and its occupants smashed Lubana’s car with batons, sickles and rods. The attackers, whom we identify as GGSU members, then came rushing towards Lubana with rods and sickles in hands. Lubana, however, was lucky to escape in time. The attackers also passed obscene remarks and gestures.”

Two other vehicles carrying NSUI stickers were also smashed and NSUI campus president Sanjeev Billa sustained minor injuries. As the attackers had a free run on the campus, the varsity security played mute spectators, giving them time to flee the campus from gate number 3. Later, the police were informed and two FIRs were registered — one on the complaint of Sanjeev Billa and other on the complaint of Simran.

TWO FIRs REGISTERED

On the complaint of Sanjeev Billa those booked are Sehajpal, Naval, Aman Kamboj, Harman Virk, Armaan Cheema, Lovely, Gaganpreet Singh Chatha, Shanky Dhiman and Anterdeep Hundal. All of them have been booked under sections 147, 148, 149, 323, 506, 341 of the IPC. Those booked on the complaint of Simran include Frainy Ahuja, Captain, Sehajpal, Naval, Aman Kang and Anterdeep, all under section 294 of the IPC.

PU FAILS TO DEFINE POLICE ROLE

The police authorities say that they had written to the PU authorities three days back, asking them to make clear what they wanted from the police during the student council elections. The PU authorities reportedly didn’t respond. Jatinder Grover from PU said, “We have been given some points by the police and we are working on them. It is not possible to ban entry of all outsiders on the campus.” The police asked the varsity authorities to keep a check on hostel boundaries, gates and outsiders.

Sansthan doctors have already declared Ashutosh clinically dead

Punjab for status quo in Ashutosh case: Not to play with sentiments of followers

By Babushahi Bureau

Chandigarh, August 22 (Courtesy :HT): The Punjab government has taken the stand to maintain status quo about keeping the body of Ashutosh Maharaj, spiritual head of Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan (DJJS) of Nurmahal (Jalandhar), inside the deep freezer, as per the wishes of his followers.

Chandigarh, August 22 (Courtesy :HT): The Punjab government has taken the stand to maintain status quo about keeping the body of Ashutosh Maharaj, spiritual head of Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan (DJJS) of Nurmahal (Jalandhar), inside the deep freezer, as per the wishes of his followers.
The state government informed the Punjab and Haryana high court on Thursday that the authorities did not want to “play with the sentiments” of the Nurmahal sansthan followers so as to avoid a law and order problem. The court headed by justice MMS Bedi was hearing a petition filed by Puran Singh, former driver of the DJJS head, seeking a CBI probe into the spiritual head’s mysterious death.

On January 29, sansthan doctors had declared Ashutosh Maharaj clinically dead, after which the DJJS management had kept the body inside a deep freezer, stating that the spiritual head had gone into ‘samadhi’ (deep state of meditation).

After hearing additional advocate general Rita Kohli’s submissions, justice Bedi said, “Rightly or wrongly, this person (petitioner) alleges death in unnatural circumstances. But what has been done with the body is disrespect to a body. Why this body is lying in the freezer? What is the duty of the state?”

When Kohli apprised the court about the shady past of the petitioner, with his involvement in various such cases, “conducting of press conferences” on the issue and “collection of money” for the same, justice Bedi added, “Had it been a civil case, it would have been dismissed. But it is a cognisable offence… As a criminal court I have to see whether the person has died a natural or unnatural death.”

On being asked by the court, Kohli replied, “No FIR has been registered in the case and proceedings under Section 174 (of the Criminal Procedure Code) have not taken place.”

Appearing for the petitioner, advocate RS Bains argued, “The state government has acknowledged the death. He (spiritual head) has been dead for the past seven months and inside the freezer. Every dera has interference in politics. They (state) are afraid of their influence.”

But justice Bedi told the petitioner’s counsel, “In this case there is no FIR and the investigation starts after the FIR. First you have to seek the registration of an FIR.” But Bains submitted that in every case of suspicion, the body had to be examined and thus Section 174 of the CrPC has to be followed.

The case has now been posted for continuing arguments on Friday.....

Mansa, August 22: The Union Minister for Food Processing Industries Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal said Food Processing has a big potential across the country and her ministry has been preparing a National Food Map to bring the processed food in the reach of common man.
While speaking to media-persons after paying obeisance at historic Gurdwara at Saide Wala village near Budhaldha town on Friday, Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal blamed food wastage as a major cause for inflation and said the food processing industry can play a vital role in checking inflation but the sector was ignored by the previous government.
Citing surveys, Mrs. Harsimrat said about 18 per cent of the country's fruits and vegetables produced in India goes waste due to lack of proper food processing facilities. “Food products worth Thousands of crores rupees go waste due to lack of proper harvesting, cold chain storage infrastructure and transportation techniques," she said.
She said that the Food Processing Ministry was determined to convert this wastage into an asset so that farmers could reap maximum profits for their produce and it would help in curbing inflation. She added that the target was to reduce wastage by at least 50 per cent in the coming two years.
Elaborating her plans, the minister disclosed that her plans include creating mega food parks as well as mini food parks closer to the farmer. “Food processing is close to my heart as Punjab is agriculture-driven state and I will try my best to help farmers of my state,”.
She added that her ministry is identifying different food producing regions to explore the possibility of establishing mini processing plants throughout the country, which will not only help in adding value to the farmer's products but also provide jobs to unskilled youth in a big way. "I have asked my officers to map out areas or pockets of agricultural products in the country for this purpose," she said adding that she wants to make Punjab a model state in food processing.
The Gurdwara Committee of Saidewala honoured the Minister, while large number of area people converged to gave warm welcome to her.
While addressing impressive gatherings at Saide Wala, Bareta and Budhladha, she promised to fast track development in the constituency. "I will work to establish houses for the houseless, try to create opportunities for youth by encouraging skill upgradation courses, ensure better education and health facilities and revamp the irrigation system,".
“I am grateful to the people of Bathinda Parliament Constituency for reposing faith by electing me as MP from Bathinda for the second time and putting big responsibility on my shoulders. My responsibility doubled when PM Modi honoured me with Cabinet Minister Rank of Food Processing Ministry”.
The minister said she would also take their feedback on the issues which still needed to be addressed. "I have been in constant touch with the people during my last five years as MP and assure the people with all humility that I will continue to interact closely with them and work to address their concerns. I also urge people to work vigorously for noble mission to save girl child and Protecting environment by planting maximum trees ,”.
Mrs. Harsimrat was accompanied by Mansa Deputy Commissioner Mr. Parveen Kumar Thind, DIG, Mr. Amar Singh Chahal, SSP, Mr. Bhupinder Singh Khtara, Budhladha MLA, Mr. Chatin Singh Samaon, former MLA Mr. Harbant Singh Datewas and area Akali leaders.....

Center to impart technical training to 2000 youth annually in 15 Courses

Committee mandated to consult CII & other premier organizations for preparing training module of center

Ludhiana, August 22: Taking a leap forward for emerging the state a hub of ‘Skilled manpower’ through product and process innovation, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today gave nod for setting up a state-of-the art Multi Skill center at the vacant lying premises of ‘Knitwear Facility’, managed and run by Punjab State Hosiery and Knitwear Development Corporation, here at local Industrial Focal point.
A decision to this effect was taken by the Chief Minister during a high level meeting with the captains of the local industry here at circuit house.
Taking part in deliberations the Chief Minister, who earlier visited the premises of this defunct center in the morning, impressed upon the Industrialists to play a pro-active role in the promotion of Skill training centers across the state with a twin objective of coping up with the needs of industry to have skilled manpower on one hand and opening new vistas of employment for the youth on the other. Assuring fulsome support and cooperation to the industrialists for executing and managing this ambitious project, he said that the entire capital cost of restructuring and renovating the existing infrastructure at the Knitwear facility would be borne by the state government and the Committee comprising of eminent industrialists would manage the affairs of this upcoming Multi skill center. Underscoring the need for providing separate Hostel facility for the Girls and boys enrolling in this Multi Skill Center, Mr. Badal asked the eminent industrialist to visit the ‘Knitwear Facility’ along with the officers of district administration to have first hand information for preparing a Detailed Project Report for this Center.
The Chief Minister further said that imparting quality skill training to the youth across the state was the need of hour to stamp out the curse of unemployment from the state. He said that this Multi skill center would impart training to 2000 unemployed youth, particularly to encompass the major section of drop outs who left the studies after tenth or twelfth due to economic hardships, every year in around 15 courses in Bicycle/ cycle parts, textile, apparel and garments, auto components, hand tools and light engineering industry besides in service sector including Hospitality, retail, healthcare and others. He also asked the Committee to put in place a training module for the students in consultation with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and other premier organizations engaged in skill training programs.
The Chief Minister further said that there was tremendous scope of skilled manpower in Health, industrial and service sectors due to which the state government has been focusing to deliver quality skill training to the youth on modern lines for coping up with the demand of local industry. He said that three para medical skill centers would be soon opened in the state at Faridkot, Amritsar and Patiala to give boost to Medical skill training in the state adding that even the upcoming Rehabilitation centers for drug addicts would also focus on providing skill training to the youth for gainful self employment. Likewise, Mr. Badal also said that Skill centers were also being opened in Jails across the state to impart skill training to the inmates.
On the occasion the Chief Minister also constituted a committee of key industrialists headed by Mr. PankajMunjal to look into the affairs of this Multi Skill center. The other members of committee included Ms. Sandeep Minni Riat, Mr. SP Oswal, Mr. Upkar Singh, Mr. SC Ralhan, Mr. Avtar Singh and Deputy Commissioner Ludhiana. Mr. Badal also directed the Deputy Commissioner to get this committee/ society registered at the earliest for the smooth management of its affairs.
Summing up the deliberations, the Chief Minister asked the committee to implement this project within three months and assured to provide lump sum amount requisite for repair, renovation besides machinery/ infra structure required for skill training as a part of capital cost. He further said that once the project took off the running expenses for managing the day-to-day affairs would be equally shared by the state government and society. Mr. Badal also asked the committee especially the Deputy Commissioner to work out the modalities for the renovation of premises of ‘Knitwear Facility’ according to the requirement to impart training to atleast 2000 unemployed youth every year.
Earlier welcoming the Chief Minister, MD Hero Cycles Mr. Pankaj Munjal highly appreciated his vision and concern to empower the educated unemployed youth of the state by affording them an opportunity of skill training so that they could be meaningfully absorbed in the local industry.

Ludhiana, August 22 : Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today called upon the representatives of all the political parties to strictly maintain decorum, discipline and refrain from creating ruckus by way of ‘hooting’ and other unsavory acts of distraction during public functions.
Interacting with the media persons of the sidelines of the function to mark the launch of scheme for the welfare of Widows here at PAU, the Chief Minister said that this unhealthy practice was not only undemocratic but also ethically and morally deplorable. Asked to comment on the recent incidents of ‘hooting’ during Prime Minister’s function in Haryana, Mr. Badal said that he was unable to comment specifically as he never knew whether this incident was just spontaneous or well planned.
Replying to another query regarding the RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement on Hindutva, the Chief Minister said that India being a secular and sovereign state was inhabited by people of different religions, castes, faiths and communities and therefore we must respect all the religions with reverence and should abstain from hurting the sentiments of people having faith in different religions and cults. Mr. Badal categorically said that he had been a true votary of peace, communal harmony and brotherhood throughout his political career spanning over nearly six decades and had ever given the precedence to it even over other important aspects of development and infra structural growth.
Earlier addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister highly appreciated he philanthropic gesture of founder Chairman of Loomba Foundation Lord Raj Loomba for launching the project to offer self employment opportunities to the Widows by imparting training in tailoring, stitching, embroidery and dress designing. He called upon the leading Industrialists and entrepreneurs to come forward for setting up such welfare projects in partnership with government adding he said that the state government would extend all possible help and cooperation in this regard. Mr. Badal impressed upon the trustee Mrs. Aruna Oswal to come up with a detailed proposal for establishing such project jointly in collaboration with the state government.
The Chief Minister said that the state government had already been giving matching grant to establish any sort of development project by NRIs in his or her village/ city and today’s launch of this project jointly by Loomba foundation and state government in which both have equally invested Rs 1 crore each was a part of this ambitious scheme. Underscoring the need to develop several skill development projects, Mr. Badal said that it was the need of hour and the philanthropist like Lord Loomba should further take the lead to transform the destiny of our state on one hand besides shaping the future of millions of unemployed youth on the other.
In his welcome address the founder trustee Lord Raj Loomba said it was his dream project which had been finally fulfilled with the support of the Punjab government. He highly commended the Chief Minister for his concern for the poor and needy by initiating welfare projects/ schemes and today’s launch of this pro-people project was a positive step in this direction. Lord Loomba lamented the plight of widows in the society especially as his own mother became widow when he was just 10 years old and hardships and mental agony through which she passed in nurturing him, inspired him the most to bring this project on ground.
Prominent amongst those present on the occasion included Cabinet Minister Mr. Parminder Singh Dhindsa, Advisor to Chief Minister Mr. Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal, Special Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Mr. KJS Cheema, Commissioner NRI Affairs Mr. B Purshartha, Deputy Commissioner Mr. Rajat Aggarwal, Champion of the foundation Graham Tobbell and his wife Mrs. Susane Tobbell.....

We can't change the history nor can we run away from the facts". He asked the HM to withdraw its illegal ban as it has hurt the Sikh sentiments.

Lambasting the BJP and the Congressmen for raising hue and cry on the film, Kanwarpal Singh said they have no business to interfere in Sikh affairs. 'It's for the Sikhs to decide who is their community's (quam) hero and Akal Takht articulating the collective aspirations of the Sikhs have declared the three (Beant Singh, Satwant Singh and Kehar Singh) as their heroes and martyrs.

Rubbishing all talks and claims by certain quarters that the film would disturb the communal harmony, he said bonds of Punjabi's are not so weak and fragile that any film could trigger unrest amongst them.

He urged the Director of the film to wait for few days and in case the government sticks to its illogical stand, then he should distribute DVD’s of the film within Sikh circles and that their cadre would screen the film in villages, towns and cities on their own.....

Ferozepur, August 21: The students of Dev Samaj College for Women – a border town educational institution committed to play an important role in the field of education of women – under the Critic Ferozepur Chapter and Philosphical Society, remembered Dr.Narendera Dabholkar - founder-President of Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (MANS), Pune, an organization set up to eradicate superstition in 1989.

On this day, the students of the College also pledged to continue questioning and struggle against superstitions and conservative thoughts to live life with logistic thoughts.

Expressing their views on the issue of education and society, the students said, Dr.Dhabholkar was MBBS doctor by profession and he epitomized scientific temper among the students. They said, now a days, the people despite being educated, they are not only ruining their health and money by having belief in conservative thoughts, superstitions and medicines by physicians lacking proper knowledge rather indulge themselves in number of problems.
The students said, the education teaches us the right path as only doctor can give treatment and not the half-baked physician. Success is obtained through hard work and education and believes everything on logics and in case anybody talks to show the key to the success then one should say goodbye from a distance.

During the course of discussions, Dr.Ambuj Sharma, incharge Philosophy Deptt talked about to get justice to Dr.Dabholkar, a physician, noted rationalist, editor of a monthly magazine and an activist who relentlessly campaigned for an anti-superstition Act in Maharashtra – and said, Dr.Dabholkr was murdered on August 20 by unknown assailangts, last year and CBI is investigating into the case.

Chandigarh, August 21 (Courtesy: HT) : India's distinguished herpetologists Rom Whitaker and Gerry Martin are coming to Punjab as part of a nationwide project to identify regional variations in snake venoms so as to develop more potent anti-snake venom serums.
Herpetologists are experts in herpetology, a branch of zoology that deals with the study of reptiles (such as snakes) and amphibians (including frogs).
The herpetologists will extract or milk the venoms of the Russell's viper, Common krait and Spectacled cobra at Nawanshahr on August 25 and 26 and do DNA tests on these specimens.
At present, the available anti-snake venom serums are a cocktail manufactured by deploying venoms extracted from South Indian snakes, specifically from two districts of Tamil Nadu. This cocktail is manufactured from the venoms of the Russell's viper, Saw-scaled viper, Spectacled cobra and Common krait, commonly known as the 'Big Four' of Indian snakes. However, these cocktail serums have not proved very efficacious for snakebites in other parts of India because of difference in snake genetics and prey base that varies from region to region. According to the latest study undertaken by Indian and foreign academics, an estimated 50,000 people die in India every year from snakebite.
Well-known snake-rescue expert Nikhil Sanger of the Wildlife Conservation Society, Nawanshahr, will be the herpetologists' principal task person for their Punjab research. Since venom cannot be carried in a liquid form as it will get contaminated due to bacterial action, the venom samples will be converted into a powder by using a lyophiliser and then flown back to Chennai/Bengaluru by the herpetologists.
"I have collected three specimens each of the viper, krait and cobra for venom extraction by Whitaker and Martin. The Punjab chief wildlife warden has granted written permission to the herpetologists for the collection of 20 viper specimens and 10 specimens each of the cobra and krait. While the six cobra and krait specimens with me are from rescue work, I had to search for the Russell's vipers in their habitat at night. I plan to collect some more vipers for the research," Sanger told HT.
Before the Punjab leg, Martin and Whitaker collected venom samples in Assam, Rajasthan, Kerala, Goa, Arunachal Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. "We are still working on getting permissions from some other states. We have received permission from Madhya Pradesh as well," Martin told HT.
Delving on the nature of the project, Martin explains: "The purpose of the study is to determine whether venom from Russell's vipers varies from place to place. There is enough clinical data to support this. However, we don't know geographically where these venoms vary. We are focusing on Russell's viper venom because this is the snake that causes the most amount of damage (to human life and limb)."
The study has a much broader thrust. "We are also looking at venoms from all snakes in every region. One of the most important aspects in the efforts to cut down the numbers of deaths is the creation of an effective anti-venom that is specific to various regions. This is especially important in regions that don't have the same venomous species as the 'Big Four'.
For example, Northeast India has none of the 'Big Four' but is still experiencing snakebite deaths. The region needs its own anti-venom serum. Our field work involves the collection of venom from different parts of the country to be compared to establish if the anti-venom will work against them or not. This research will then dovetail into the production of regionally-specific and potent anti-venom," said Martin. ....

Chandigarh, August 21 (Courtesy: HT): Controversial Punjabi movie 'Kaum Ke Heere' on assassination of then Prime minister Indira Gandhi will not to be released on Friday, I&B ministry informed on Thursday.
The movie, which stalled due to objections by the censor board, was set for a release on August 22.
The film was first scheduled for release on February 28 and then March 14, but, when it was put on hold in India, an overseas release gave it some success.
In a recent interview to Hindustan times, Ravinder Ravi, writer and director of the film, asserted that the film was a 100 percent true story and portrayed life and feelings of the Indira Gandhi assassins, thus had nothing to do with Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale or Operation Bluestar.
“The film is based on true events, as per the findings of Justice Thakkar Commission, and does not aim to create any controversy, The motive is to tell the audience the actual chain of events and give biographical accounts of Satwant Singh , Beant Singh and Kehar Singh (assassins of former PM Indira Gandhi),” he said.

Talking to HT on Thursday, actor Sukhdeep Sukh, who is playing the character of Satwant Singh, said, “We are surprised to see the unnecessary controversies being raised by political outfits for such an emotional and a balanced film. It has nothing to do with Operation Bluestar, there are just one or two scenes and that too in the back drop, rest the film is post bluestar and revolves around Satwant Singh, Kehar Singh and Beant Singh’s lives.”


According to Babushahi sources the Indian Home Ministry has expressed serious concern over the contents of a Punjabi film on former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination and asked the Information and Broadcasting Ministry to take a relook at the clearance given to it.
I&B ministry, Home Ministry has said that Punjabi-language film 'Kaum De Heere', which is scheduled to be released tomorrow, may affect the communal harmony in Punjab and other northern states. Home Ministry told I&B ministry that some of the content in the film was "highly objectionable" and may create enmity between communities and lead to communal tension.
the film, is based on the lives of the assassins of the late prime minister -- Beant Singh, Satwant Singh and Kehar Singh -- glorifies their act. Also some reports that Censor Board CEO Rakesh Kumar, who was arrested recently by CBI on corruption charges, gave clearance to the film after allegedly taking a bribe of Rs 1 lakh.
The Punjab units of Congress and BJP have demanded a ban on the film.

Talwandi Sabo/Chandigarh, August 21: Strongly condemning the murderous attack by the Akali goons on the Congress candidate, Mr Harminder Singh Jassi in Rama Mandi today, the state party President, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa, asserted that despite excesses, booth capturing, buying of votes and other illegitimate means resorted to by the ruling Akali Dal, the Congress would retain this seat with a comfortable margin.

Bajwa alleged the Akali Dal activists opened fire in Rama Mandi to create scare in Congress dominated area and said such terror tactics would prove to be counter-productive. Talwandi Sabo polls will herald Punjab towards freedom from tyrant and corrupt regime of Badal’s.

He slammed the Akali Dal for resorting to booth capturing, pressure tactics and other excesses in villages like Dunewal, Jeon Singhwala, Malkana, Giana, Bhagwanpur, some wards of Rama Mandi, Bangi Nihal Singh, Leleana and Shergarh.

He said Talwandi Sabo was the seat of Takht Damdama Sahib but the Akali Dal had desecrated this sacred land by large scale distribution of drugs to lure the voters.

He said the Akali activists openly indulged in purchase of votes on a large scale. Moreover, the Akali leaders from outside the constituency blatantly violated the directive of the Election Commission to leave the area after the end of campaigning. However, they were seen roaming around freely and pressurizing the voters. However, the Congress activists were meted out diametrically opposite treatment by the administration.

He also blasted the ruling party for the brazen misuse of the state machinery in an effort to facilitate the victory of the deserter from the Congress who was fielded by the Akali Dal.

He said the Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal, the Deputy Chief Minister, Sukhbir Singh Badal and the Union Minister for Food Processing, Mrs Harsimrat Kaur Badal, had campaigned in favour of the party candidate, Mr Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu.
Mr Bajwa, who himself had commandeered the campaign of Harminder Singh Jassi, said the Congress leaders and activists had hit back by virtually going in for carpet bombing to make the people realise that the outcome of this election would determine the destiny of Punjab. He thanked the people for overwhelming response and expressed the hope that the results of the two bye-elections would herald the much needed change in this state.....

New Delhi, August 21 : The Supreme Court will hear on Monday a batch of petitions challenging the 121st constitutional amendment by which collegium system for appointment of judges in higher judiciary was scrapped and a new mechanism under National Judicial Appointment Commission (NJAC) was proposed to be put in place.

When advocates appearing for petitioners, challenging the NJAC measure, pleaded that urgent hearing should be given to them, a bench headed by Chief Justice R M Lodha said that the matter is coming for hearing on Monday.

Four PILs have been filed in the Supreme Court for declaring the NJAC move as unconstitutional, days after Parliament passed two bills to scrap the collegium system for appointments in higher judiciary and to provide a new mechanism in its place.

The PILs have been filed by former Additional Solicitor General Bishwajit Bhattacharya, advocates R K Kapoor and Manohar Lal Sharma and Supreme Court Advocates on Record Association.

The lawyers submitted that the 121st Constitutional Amendment Bill and the NJAC Bill, 2014, passed by Parliament were unconstitutional as they violate the basic structure of the Constitution.

"The Constitution itself recognises a clear demarcation separating the judiciary from the executive under Article 50 of the Constitution which is the underlying strength for a sound judicial system.

"It would be relevant to point out here that Article 50 of the Directive Principles of the State Policy under the Constitution is not only applicable to the lower judiciary but is also applicable to the higher judiciary as the doctrine of separation of power and the independence of the judiciary were basic immutable features of the Constitution," Kapoor submitted.
