Ferozepur, April 23: Exact six days are left for polling in Punjab scheduled for April 30. All the political parties in Ferozepur are working day and night to cover the entire constituency to appeal to the voters with promises as usual for the coming five years.
During the electioneering in Ferozepur, the candidates of national as well as regional and state political parties have come up with their agendas and the issues which they have taken up during the election campaigns have come on surface are as:

1. Opening of Indo-Pak border from Hussainiwala and Sulemani for trade purposes
2. Floods due to over flow of Sutlej river
3. Seepage problem in Sri Muktsar and Abohar areas
4. Shortage of health, education services and employment opportunities.
5. Backwardness due to border areas and non-existence of industry
6. Drugs, inflation and unemployment
7. Black marketing of sand, gravel and imposition of property tax
8. Non availability of train services for Sri Amritsar Sahib, Haridawar religious places.
9. Spreading of chronic diseases like cancer, hepatitis etc. due to unhygienic water under earth.
10.Non payment of compensation faced by the farmers for cultivating of
land beyond the wire-fencing on Indo-Pak border

How far the candidate, if elected as MP from Ferozepur would be successful will depend on as to which government is formed at the Centre. In case the government at the centre is of the opposite party in the state, the position would be totally different so far as Punjab is concerned, for allotment of funds. It is normally seen that step-motherly treatment is given to the states that do not enjoy the same status in the political circle at the centre.
Take the case of opening of Hussainiwala border, after 1971, all leaders are promising to get it opened for trade purpose, nothing has been done so far except the promises rather Ferozepur district used to be one of the biggest district in the state, is now reduced to a narrow strip of land along with the Indo-Pak border.
The major projects announced so far – degree college and PGI Satellite Centre, domestic air port are only running on papers only.
In the past, it has been seen that there have been credit war on allotment of for certain major projects in Ferozepur by the Congress and Akali-BJP leaders which delays in completion of projects, with one or the other reason in procedural formalities by using the delaying tactics, to downgrade the other candidate. In this ‘pull and push’, the ultimate sufferer are people who are deprived of the basic facilities despite promises from the leaders during the elections and they continue to wait for the next elections.

Amritsar: April 22: To maximize the voter participation in the upcoming lok sabha elections 2014, and to reduce the apathy of the urban population towards the polling process, a special initiative has been undertaken by the district administration Amritsar by the launching of "Model Polling Booths". Aimed at attracting the urban masses to the polling stations, these special booths have been prepared to serve as a beacon for the other booths too.

This idea was conceived by the Deputy Commissioner cum DEO Ravi Bhagat, who said that the concept was to woo the voters just like a service industry would to its clients, by providing state of the art facilities to the voters and to make the process of the exercise of their franchise an enjoyable experience, rather than an ordeal. to achieve this objective, a number of facilities are being provided at these booths, by anticipating the needs of each and every segment of the society. There will be 18 such booths in the district. The facilities would include providing a red carpet welcome to the voters. A shamina will be put up to shield the waiting people from the heat, drinking water would be available.

Special facilities to the old and infirm voters, as well as pregnant women and differently disabled persons, shall be provided such as wheelchairs and a separate waiting area for them. NSS and NCC volunteers have been roped in to provide help to these voters, and for queue management. A special help desk shall be put up outside the booth for voter assistance. If any voter forgets his voting slip, he can check the voting list present at the help desk and get on-the-spot voting slip from there itself.

Apart from that, a medical/first aid center shall be created to handle minor emergencies. To help the mothers who are accompanied by their children, a novel concept of a "play area" for the children has been developed, which will have swings and toys for playing, as well as caretakers to look after the children while their mothers take throe turn at casting their vote. The DEO said that sign ages and banners, depicting all the above facilities of help desk, waiting area, drinking water and play areas etc, shall be put up at prominent locations throat the city to make the people aware of these booths. With the creation of these model polling booths, the administration aims create a sort of festive atmosphere, to lure the voters to throng the booths on the day of the poll, so that a proper choice of the government is made by the citizens.

In a statement here, the SAD General Secretary MR Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal said that Mr Shashi Kant nursed a grouse against the SAD-BJP government for not fulfilling his ambition of becoming the DGP of the state. "The fact is that Mr Shahshi Kant's ravings are merely an
expression of his personal failures and frustrations in life. He tried his best to get a posting as the DGP of the state and, having failed to do so, even tried his hand at gaining some public status by annoucning himself as the president of the state unit of the Aam Admi Party. But AAP also disowned him, leaving him even more frustrated."
Grewal said that if Shahsi Kant had any evidence of any wrong doings by any politician in Punjab, he should have recorded his findings in files. Why did he not do so. "It is not unusual for officers to record their dissent when they feel that the government of the day is not on the right track on any issue."
Grewal said that even on the Sacha Sauda issue, Shashi Kant was handling a responsibility as an officer. "If he found that the government's handling was not professional or upright, he had every right to record his dissent. Did he do so? "
"The fact of the matter is that Shashi Kant has not realised his personal, professional or political ambitions and out of his frustration is dragging big names into controversies merely to gain cheap publicity."

New Delhi, April 22: A PIL has been filed in Delhi High Court against Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra demanding criminal investigation against him over alleged land and other corruption related charges. The matter is likely to come up for hearing in the court on Wednesday.
Media reports that this comes after Priyanka Gandhi for the first time responded to allegations against her husband saying that she will fight the insults. Addressing an election meeting in Raebareli on today, she hit back at the Opposition for dragging Vadra's name in the election campaign.
"Many things are being said about my family, my husband. I feel sad the way humiliating things are being said. The more I will be humiliated, more will be my determination to fight," she said while admitting that she had learned from her grandmother Indira Gandhi not to be deterred by such statements.

Modi has no magic wand to turn fortunes of Akali Dal-BJP candidates

Bajwa nails Khanna on performance, tours Bhoa assembly constituency

Gurdaspur, April 22: The Punjab Congress Committee President Partap

Gurdaspur, April 22: The Punjab Congress Committee President Partap
Singh Bajwa, today said the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate and the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, had no magic wand to uplift the sinking fortunes of the Akali Dal-BJP candidates in Punjab. He also challenged his opponent from the BJP,. Vinod Khanna, on performance index in the Lok Sabha.
Bajwa, who is seeking re-election from Gurdaspur, said the anti-incumbency against the state government in general and the Deputy Chief Minister, Sukhbir Singh Badal, and the Revenue Minister, Bikram Singh Majithia in particular, was so strong that Modi would miserably fail to reverse the situation and this alliance would be wiped out from the state. He said the desperate alliance was counting
on Modi but this state was different from the rest of the country due
to its political dynamics.

He said this government’s only claim to fame was that this once the
most prosperous state had been turned into a state of addicts and the
people had openly started demanding from the rulers, including the
Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, that licenced vends should be
opened here on the Rajasthan pattern for selling poppy husk (Bhukki).
He said the smuggling of narcotics was being controlled by the ruling
party’s mafia. The Akali Dal candidates had now become so demoralised
from the prospect of defeat that they had also started supporting
this demand. He cited the case of Akali Dal candidate from Faridkot
Paramjit Kaur Gulshan in this regard.

Bajwa said jungle law prevailed in the state and it was shocking that
the staff of the Orbit transport company owned by Sukhbir Badal
publicly forced the passengers of a state roadways bus yesterday on
the GT Road at Jalandhar to get down and board their bus. He said the
Deputy Chief Minister had monopolised private transport in the state
and now his target was to close down the state transport. He said the
de facto situation was that the routs on which the roadways buses used
to run had already been taken over by the Badal transport.

The PPCC chief said the Akali Dal-BJP alliance was seeking votes only
in Modi’s name but this factor would not blunt the strong
anti-incumbency in the state.

Joining issues with Khanna, he said the Mumbai Ka Babu should have
thought twice before questioning his performance. He said his
attendance in the 15th Loik Sabha was 82 per cent as against 42 per
cent of Khanna in his last tenure, 1.e., 14th Lok Sabha. Similarly,
he said he put 359 questions during the period under comparison as
against just 4 in five years by Khanna. He said this was part of the
record of the Lok Sabha.

He said so far as the issue of brining big ticket projects from the
centre was concerned Khanna should better have questioned the Chief
Minister and the Deputy Chief Minister who scuttled his projects by
not allocating land. These projects included railway coach factory at
Kalanaur and Beas-Qadian railway line, to talk of only just two
projects, he added.

Bajwa toured Taragarh, Kathlaur, Narot Jaimal Singh, Gugran, Malarwan,
Taloor, Naroli, Ambi, Janial, Bamial,Kichack, Barmaal Jattan and Datial
alongwith Rumal Chand Ex MLA,Raj Kumar Bloc President, Rajvir Singh
Gogi,Kapil Salaria,Lakhbir Singh,Ramesh Ram Ex Sarpanch,RAj Kumar,Sanjiv

New Delhi, April 22: Not feeling comfortable with statements made by VHP leader Pravin Togadia and Bihar BJP leader Giriraj Singh, BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has sounded a note of advise to party leaders to refrain from petty statements as the party has committed to go to people on issues of development & Good Governance.
"With great happiness, the entire nation is looking toward BJP for going to people solely on the issue of good governance and development," Modi said in one of his tweets.

Modi, however, did not take any name but it was clear he was obviously referring to Togadia and Giriraj Singh, who had made hate speeches in the last three days.
Togadia, who is not on best of relations with Modi, created a storm when he had asked his supporters to forcibly vacate a house purchased by a Muslim in a Hindu-majority area of Bhavnagar.
Giriraj Singh, a former minister and a candidate in the Lok Sabha elections in Bihar, had said that those opposing Modi had no place in India but should go to Pakistan.
Following a storm over his remarks, Togadia has denied giving any advise which was "socially or legally wrong" and threatened to take legal action against media houses.
Despite, the party president Rajnath Singh pulling him up, Giriraj Singh has said he stood by his comments.

The great leaders of the Congress alongwith crores of workers toiled hard and made sacrifices to build the country, she said and asserted that her party had struggled to keep the unity of the country in tact.
She said that in the last ten years the UPA government under the leadership of Dr Manmohan Singh had done work for the benefit of all and it is before you to see.

Kotshamir (Bathinda) April 22 : Akali leader and former DGP Paramdeep Singh Gill while addressing a meeting of Akali workers on Monday at the residence of Humpreet Singh Chahal at village Kotshamir urged the people to elect a government that works for the welfare of the people and provides good governance. Gill said every elected government in democracy has three utmost duties towards the people which are external security of the country, law and order and development of trade and business in peaceful atmosphere. Gill said UPA government has failed on all these fronts. The ten year rule of the UPA has failed to solve the problems of people.

Gill said Akali Dal is an important partner in the NDA and it will play an important role in the new central government in Delhi. The people of the country have high hopes from Narendra Modi added Gill.

25 families from the village joined SAD in the presence of the former DGP P.S Gill who garlanded them with siropas. Prominent among others present on the occasion were Binny Mann from Tappa Khera, Sukhchain Singh Bhullar and youth Akali Dal leaders of Bathinda.

respected sir, i was on your neighbor seat yesterday instead of 6 Ps, m also agree with yor point of advertisement and pornography which pollute young minds. but i also want to share you that in each and every article related to women issues the first line is "women is half of the world population" but only .5 to 1 per cent of glamour dolls pretend to show the image of women and people are ready to accept. it is the issue of deterioration of dignity of women in the society. there is a ad on whisky in which by each and every sip of whisly the top of women started disappear and the slogan is "kujh bhi ho skta hai" . similarly movies like grand masti which passed by censor are also create danger in the society related to cultural and value terams. there is need to finish gender gap in the society,. boys and girls look each other as alliens as they do not understand opposite sex and so they attracted. from the begining in the school, there create rows of boys and girls seprately. if we do not understand opposite sex we will not respect them, there is need to reduce this .
