Chandigarh, September 2: Alleging that Bhupinder Singh Hooda led state government in Haryana has duped the citizens of state by looting a lot of public money, the INLD Lok Sabha MP from Hisar, Shri Dushyant Chautala has demanded white paper from Haryana CM over the fiscal health of the state.
In a statement issued after addressing a meeting of party workers in favour of Fatehabaad INLD candidate Shri Balwaan Daulatpuria, the Hisar MP said the state government has miserably failed on every front in providing basic amenities whereas the Cabinet Ministers including the CM instead of working dedicatedly to resolve the public issues have remained indulged in corrupt practices.
“It was because of wrong fiscal policies adopted by the Hooda government that Haryana, who is being shown as no 1 state in advertisement of achievements by the Congress led state government, has landed in the list of states having maximum fiscal loans. The fiscal mess has taken such a serious turn that the government is not having money to pay for the salaries of its employees,” alleged the INLD MP.
The INLD MP alleged that just to earn good “commission”, the Hooda government deliberately ordered shutting down of state owned power plants and decided to purchase power from the Adaani group of Gujarat. “Power was purchased on expensive rates from Adaani group when the demand in the state was very less. Hooda must clarify what was the need for having such policies..? How much money Adaani had given to the CM as a commission…Public need answers,” questioned the INLD MP.
Dushayant also alleged that for personal gains, Hooda government also kept aside the all the developmental projects and provided nod to only those who were ready to give good “commission” to the leaders of the Hooda government.
“In last ten years rule of the Congress government, only those companies were allowed to work who ensured happiness of the Ministers and the CM Hooda. All those who declined to pay the heavy commission were discouraged and were not supported,” he said.
The MP said when the state coffers were empty, Hooda in a last ditch effort, was making announcements to allure the public again but this time, public was in no mood to give another term to the brazenly corrupt Congress government.
On the occasion, former tourism minister late Leelakrishan Chaudhary’s son Tarun Chaudhary and grandson Saurbah Chaudhary, who are famous Punjabi community leader of the region, assured all political help to ensure INLD candidate win from the constituency.
Addressing the Punjabi community members here, Dushyant Chautala said that Chaudhary family has always remained an important member of the INLD and its contribution to the party was immense.....

Chandigarh, September 2 (Courtesy : HT): Leader of the Opposition Sunil Jakhar on Monday accused the Punjab government of being “a mere puppet in the hands of the sand mafia” by not auctioning the 39 quarries in the state that were given the nod by the Centre in June.
In a statement here, Jakhar said that chief minister Parkash Singh Badal had met union environment minister Prakash Javadekar on June 13, when the latter informed the CM that the 39 quarries were given the goahead for functioning.
“As a consequence, sand remains costly and it appears that there are some vested interests in the government who do not want to end this artificial scarcity and high price cycle for sand and gravel,” Jakhar said.
Jakhar dared the chief minister to call a one-day legislative session exclusively on the issue of high prices of sand and let it be publicly telecast, so that the people should know the truth behind the costly sand and artificial scarcity. “It is time to debate on this sensitive issue threadbare so that the role of government supported vested players gets exposed,” he added.....

Coal supplier Panem holds contract for operating PSPCL’s captive coal mine in Jharkhand

Chandigarh, September 2 (Courtesy: HT):
Apparently arm-twisting the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) in a bid to get higher coal rates, Panem has curtailed supplies to the PSPCL by 50% this year, leading to a coal crisis and forcing the corporation to go for load shedding.
Coal supplier Panem holds the contract for operating the PSPCL’s captive coal mine in Jharkhand. The company has already invoked arbitration proceedings against the PSPCL, demanding higher coal rates.
Two meetings in this regard have been held, with former Punjab chief secretary RS Mann officiating as the arbitrator.
During the first five months (April to August) of the current financial year, 57 lakh tonnes of coal was to be supplied by all sources. However, only 39 lakh tonnes was received at the PSPCL’s thermal plants, which is 70% of the requirement.
Owing to less supplies, the coal stocks of the three state-run power plants have reached a critical level, as no plant has coal for more than two days of continuous operation. However, widespread rain in Punjab on Monday brought relief for the PSPCL, which had on Sunday imposed power cuts of 190 lakh units across the state.
As per figures, the PSPCL needs a total of 136 lakh tonnes of coal annually at all three state-owned plants. Seventy lakh tonnes are to be supplied by Panem, 35 lakh tonnes by Centre Coalfields Limited (CCL) after washing by Monnet Daniel Washeries, 10 lakh tonnes by Bharat Coking Coal Limited (BCCL), 10 lakh tonnes (direct) by the CCL and 11 lakh tonnes by the South Eastern Coal Limited (SECL).
While central government owned-utilities BCCL and CCL have supplied 65% and 80% extra coal and coal supplies by SECL are almost normal (91%), the supplies made by private firms hired by the PSPCL, namely Panem and Monnet Washeries, are less by 50% and 60%, respectively.
Panem, which was to supply 29 lakh tonnes of coal during these five months, supplied only 14.5 lakh tonnes, while Monnet Washeries has provided only 5.6 lakh tonnes against its quota of 14.5 lakh tonnes. The two firms have together failed to supply 23 lakh tonnes. Had Panem and Monnet made normal supplies, the situation would have been better for Punjab’s thermal plants, a PSPCL official said.
The Punjab government has failed to take any action, despite the fact that the PSPCL’s thermal plants at Ropar, Bathinda and Lehra Mohabbat are starved of coal on account of non-supply of committed quantity by Panem.
As per the coal purchase agreement with Panem, if the shortfall in coal supplies is more than 5% of the required quantity during any month, the PSPCL is to claim liquidated damages (penalty) for the same. But the PSPCL has failed to invoke the clause so far.
When contacted, PSPCL director Surinder Pal said though the stocks were ‘critical’, the PSPCL was managing the situation. “We have got enhanced supplies today (Monday). More stocks are expected in the next two or three days. Though there is coal shortage, we have not shut down any plant so far due to this reason,” he said. On the curtailed supplies by Panem, he said the state government was taking up the matter with the firm and the central government.
Despite repeated attempts, Panem officials could not be contacted for comment.....

Chandigarh, September 2 (Courtesy: HT): The ossification test report of Jyoti Meer, one of the two Nooran sisters, popular Sufi singers from Jalandhar, has revealed that she is a minor.
The test report from Government Multi-Specialty Hospital in Sector 16, Chandigarh, was submitted on Monday in the court headed by justice TPS Mann during the resumed hearing in the case where Jyoti has been seeking protection from her parents after solemnising the marriage against their wishes at a Chandigarh temple on August 2.
As per the report, Jyoti’s age is roughly between 16½ and 17 and the doctors have claimed that it could be slightly less or more.
Though Jyoti claims she is 20, her parents say her matriculation certificate shows her as 16, thus she is a minor. Jyoti, who claims to have firm belief in Hinduism unlike her Muslim parents, solemnised the marriage with Kunal Passi, a resident of Mohalla Chaudhrian in Phillaur tehsil of Jalandhar district as per Hindu Vedic rites.
Jyoti had told the court that her parents were “very greedy and clever” and had managed to forge her matriculation certificate and changed her date of birth to pass her off as a minor on the instructions of her promoter to accommodate her mother on a Canadian trip as her caretaker.
Taking the report on record, the court directed the in-charge of the Chandigarh protection home in Sector 19 to again take back Jyoti along with Passi, to the protection home. The court directed the in-charge to produce both in the court on the next date of hearing.
During the arguments, Jyoti’s counsel argued, “Since Jyoti’s father had also approached me, there is a possibility of manipulation of the ossification report. They can go to any extent.”
But the court took a serious note of the counsel questioning the credibility of the report submitted by the government hospital. “It was your request to conduct ossification. On that day you said that her (Jyoti’s) father had produced certificates and if found wrong, action should be taken against him. Now the report has come against you. What should be done now,” questioned justice Mann.
On this, Jyoti’s counsel submitted that at least the petitioners should be provided protection of life and liberty as per their prayer in the petition. Because of the lack of time for detailed arguments in the case on Monday, the court posted the matter for September 18.....

Amritsar, September 2: Senior Supreme Court Advocate and AAP leader H. S. Phoolka in a letter to Chairman National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) raised issue of illegitimate detention of Bikram Singh alleged gross Human Right violation.
Phoolka said this is an attempt by the Akali Government to terrorise the unemployed Youth and muffle the voice of people of Punjab.
In a petition to NHRC, Phoolka stated that one Bikram Singh was arrested by Khana Police (Punjab) on 15.08.2014 and FIR under sections 101, 151 Criminal Procedure Code was registered against him. Both the above mentioned offences are bailable. As per the law, when the accused is ready to furnish the bail bond, he has to be released by the police officer and he cannot be kept under custody. Mr. Bikram Singh was ready to furnish the bail bond, the sureties were also available, however the police in a total high-handedness and gross violation of law, kept him in custody the whole night. The next day, instead of releasing him on bail the police with total malafide intention and to keep him in custody registered another case against him under sections 332, 353, 355, 506, 186 IPC. As per the information this case is totally a false case and is registered only to keep Bikram Singh in Jail.

When the continuous detention of Bikram Singh in police custody on 15 August 2014 onwards in bailable offence is totally illegal, how can sections 332,353,355 IPC which are meant for protecting a public servant who is performing a legal duty, these sections are not meant for protecting a public servant or public officer who is himself committing illegal acts. When the continuous detention of Bikram Singh in police custody in itself is illegal and high-handedness, it cannot be alleged that Bikram Singh interfered in performance of legal duties of police officer, said Phoolka.

Phoolka said this action of the police force and Punjab Government has sent a shock wave to the state. Bikram Singh was arrested hurling a shoe on Chief Minister of Punjab S. Prakash Singh Badal; the shoe fell far away from the dias. As per the law Bikram Singh should be punished for an offence what he has committed, punishing him for an higher offence is in gross violation of law and the human rights. If a person slaps someone he can be punished for assault but he cannot be punished for Murder. In the case of Bikram Singh he was rightly charged under section 101, 151 of Criminal Procedure Code and should have been dealt under these provisions, but his continuous detention in police custody in bailable offence and next day charged for other offences, is a total case of vendetta and is malafide.

It is learnt that Bikram Singh was an unemployed youth and was trying to highlight the issue of State Government not filling up the posts since last 5 years which has resulted in large scale unemployment. The excuse given by the State Government for not filling up the regular vacancies is lack of funds; at the same time the State Government is lavishly spending on luxury cars for ministers and on their foreign trips. This has caused lot of frustration among the youth who is unemployed in Punjab.

The State Government is trying to terrorise the Youth in the State by illegally detaining Bikram Singh and implicating him falsely. It’s an attempt to silent the youth who is frustrated and is raising the voice against high-handedness of the government. The most unfortunate part is that the Chief Minister of the State is himself involved in this.

This incident has sent a shock wave in the State. It is not only the human right violation of Bikram Singh which are being violated, the people of the State feel that it is an attempt to terrorise and muffle the voice of people of the Punjab.

A large number of signature campaigns have started. Thousands have already signed these petitions. Numbers of Petitions have been sent to various authorities, but no action by these authorities and forums is further aggravating the situation.

Urging the NHRC to intervene in this matter Phoolka demanded to hold an independent investigation through your team and also take strict action against the responsible police officers who are officers who are responsible and secure the release of Bikram Singh and other persons arrested alongwith him.....

Amritsar, September 2: Radical Sikh outfit Dal Khalsa today fired a salvo against fire brand BJP leader Laxmi Kanta Chawla for allegedly spewing venom against Sikh martyrs and traditions.

The organization has asked her not to surpass the limits and nor offend the sentiments of the Sikhs.

Taking the BJP leader's name calling the Sikh martyrs as provocative and ridiculous, the Dal Khalsa head H S Dhami said right from 1984 this lady has always love to be on the wrong side of the Sikh community.

The freedom to express one's views doesn't give her the freedom to use abusive language against Sikh way and tradition to honour their martyrs. Quoting world famous phrase that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter, he said if the BJP, Congress or any pro-Indian party considers Beant Singh-Satwant Singh, Bhai Jinda-Sukha and Dilawar Singh as "terrorist" it's their "perception". With regard to Sikhs, he said, they all are heroes as they have been declared martyrs by Akal Takht.

Without mincing words, he said "to whom Sikhs consider their traitors, they are your (read likes of Laxmi Kanta) heroes". In the eyes of Sikhs, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, PV Narsima Rao, Gen Vadiya, Gen KS Brar, KPS Gill, Beant Singh falls in the category of 'terrorists' as they all engineered the mass killings of Sikhs in one way or the other though at different times.


He slammed BJP leadership for their communal streak and sectarian agenda. He rubbishes the bogus claims of Laxmi Kanta that films or functions to pay tributes to martyrs would disturb peace and harmony.
He asserted that the peace and harmony could be in danger with the utterances of RSS and BJP leaders who are hell bent to radicalize the political atmosphere to consolidate Hindu vote-bank.....

Nod for merging 583 veterinary doctors of Rural Development & Panchayat Department in Animal Husbandry Department

Chandigarh, September 2: In a significant decision aimed at checking spiraling prices of the Sand/ gravel in the state, the Punjab Cabinet today gave green signal for amending Punjab Minor Mineral Rules, 2013 thereby allowing the Industries department to allot 37 quarries to the Punjab State Industrial Export Corporation (PSIEC) at a fixed rate of royalty to supply cheap sand/ bajri to the consumers.
A decision to this effect was taken in a meeting of the Council of Ministers chaired by the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal at CMO, this afternoon.
Disclosing this here today a spokesperson of the Chief Minister's Office said that the PSIEC would ensure the supply of sand/ bajri at pit head level on a fair price whereas the Punjab Mandi Board would supply the minerals to the consumers at their doorsteps or at market committee yards by charging transport rates fixed by the transport department on kilometer basis. The consumer would have the option of booking their demand of sand/ gravel at Market committee level also.
The Cabinet also decided to bifurcate the post of Director Industries and Mining. A separate officer of the requisite seniority would be posted as Director Mining, whose sole responsibility would be to look after the mining of minor minerals in the state and supply thereof. The Cabinet also authorized the Industries and Agriculture Ministers to remove any difficulty coming in the way of implementing this policy.
In another major decision, the Cabinet also decided to merge 13034 sanctioned posts of ETT teachers in the 5772 schools run by the Rural Development and Panchayat Department in the state Education department.
Likewise, the Cabinet also approved the merger of 583 posts of Rural Veterinary Officers working in 582 Civil Veterinary Hospitals managed and run by the Rural Development and Panchayat Department in the Animal Husbandry.
The Cabinet also decided to abolish the 'Abiana' charged from the farmers @ Rs 150 per acre per crop.In a bid to maintain and clean the existing Minors and distributaries in the state, the Cabinet also approved to levy water cess @ Rs.50 per acre per crop instead of Abiana by amending the Indian Canal & Drainage Act, 1873. This decision would help in mobilizing sufficient funds for the proper maintenance and cleaning of these Minors and distributaries.
The Cabinet also decided that a master plan of the Irrigation network be prepared for providing required irrigation water to the farmers through a robust canal system. It was also decided to set up water users committees at XEN level. This Committee under the respective XEN would collect the cleaning cess and also ensure its use for cleaning minors and distributaries in the jurisdiction of respective committees. The Cabinet also decided that an amount equal to the cleaning cess collected in the state would be contributed by the state government which would be used for rejuvenating and cleaning the canal network in the state. The users of canal water would oversee the utilization of this cess. The cleaning cess would be levied on only those farmers who used canal water.
The Cabinet also gave approval to amend the Gram Panchayat land lease policy thereby authorizing the concerned Deputy Commissioner of the district for approving the lease of gram panchayat land (shamlat) for 33 years for setting up the projects cleared by the department of Power and Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA). Under the amended policy the annual rate of lease has also been reduced from 10% to 5%. This decision would not only curtail inordinate delay in the leasing out gram panchayat land but also help the prospective investors for quick implementation of solar power and other renewable energy projects duly approved by the power department and PEDA.
The Cabinet also gave go ahead for amending the Punjab State Legislature Members (Pension and Medical Facilities Regulation) Act, 1977 with retrospective effect thereby allowing pension on a graded scale to an MLA who has been elected as such but not disqualified.
In a move aimed at ensuring the recruitment and promotion of all the categories in Group A and B of Technical Education and Industrial Training department, the Cabinet also gave ex-post facto approval for notifying Rules of the department.
The Cabinet also authorized the Excise and Taxation Minister to review and rationalize the VAT levied on aerated drinks and cigarettes. The Cabinet, similarly also authorized the Transport Minister to review and rationalize the registration fee levied on four wheeler vehicles.....

By Babushahi Bureau

Patiala, September 1: Excise and Taxation Department, Punjab has detected a major scam in evasion of tax on ceramic tiles. This was informed by Sh.

Patiala, September 1: Excise and Taxation Department, Punjab has detected a major scam in evasion of tax on ceramic tiles. This was informed by Sh. Anurag Verma, I.A.S., Excise & Taxation Commissioner, Punjab. He said a few days back, a vehicle No. RJ 07 GA 1846 loaded with Ceramic Tiles was checked on Barnala-Raikot Road. It claimed that it was carrying ceramic tiles worth Rs.3,01,528/- from M/s. Metro City Tiles Pvt. Ltd., Morbi, Gujarat to M/s. Gupta Sanitary and Hardware Store, in Chandigarh. The vehicle was being escorted by the car of a “Passer”. On checking, it was found that the passer was carrying a parallel set of documents, issued by M/s. H & R Johnson India Ltd., Mumbai (Mah.) in favour of M/s. Maa Mahakali Traders, Jalandhar amounting to Rs.7,56,624/-. On being questioned, the driver and the Passer stated that the tiles of M/s. H & R Johnson brand were actually going to be delivered to the dealer at Jalandhar but in order to evade tax, bogus/forged transit documents had been prepared in favour of a Chandigarh dealer. The Jalandhar dealer denied that he had brought/purchased these tiles. A couple of days later, two more vehicles having registration Nos. RJ07GA-2782 and RJ07GB4289 were impounded, in which similar modus operandi of tax evasion was being adopted. Mr. Verma said that a penalty of Rs.11,87,477/- have been imposed on the goods in the vehicle, but no one has come forward to claim the goods as owners till now.
Mr. Verma said that in order to go to the root of the problem, the computer data was searched to find out as to how many trucks had transited through Punjab carrying tiles from M/s. Metro City Tiles P Ltd. Morbi, Gujarat to various dealers of neighboring states. It was found that during last one year, 181 trucks had crossed the State carrying goods of M/s. Metro City Tiles P Ltd. Morbi, Gujarat. Value of these goods was more than Rs. 5 crores. Out of this, goods worth Rs.80 lacs have been shown to have been sent to the Chandigarh dealer. Mr. Verma added that with the help of VAT Department, U.T. Chandigarh, a statement of M/s. Gupta Sanitary & Hardware Store was recorded. The dealer denied having received any of these goods, meaning thereby the goods amounting to Rs. 80 lakhs were actually unloaded and sold in Punjab and tax thereon was evaded.
Mr. Verma said that in the light of denial by both Jalandhar and Chandigarh dealers, the Department did brain-storming as to how to catch the actual dealer who had received the goods. It was felt that M/s. H & R Johnson India Ltd. would be having the names of Punjab dealers who had imported goods from them because the vehicle detected had a correct set of documents from M/s. H & R Johnson India Ltd., Mumbai. In light of this, the matter has been taken up with VAT Department, Gujarat to provide the details of purchases of ceramic tiles made by Punjab dealers from their dealers. He said that the first interaction with Gujarat VAT Department revealed that during last four years Gujarat dealers had sent ceramic tiles worth about Rs.770 crores to Punjab dealer. In light of this, VAT Department, Gujarat has been requested to give the detailed information of amount of ceramic tiles purchased by Punjab dealers from Gujarat. Gujarat dealers would necessarily have supplied these details to their VAT Department in order to claim concessional rate of tax under CST Act. They would also have provided ‘C’ and ‘F’ forms obtained from Punjab dealers. Once this data is obtained, the returns of Punjab dealers would be compared with it and where Tax has been evaded would be recovered. ....

While talking to mediapersons at Shergill Farm in Behrampur Zimidara village near here on Sunday, Dr Gandhi said AAP was born out of movement of Anna Hazare, but had lost organisational structure, and some opportunistic persons of the movement had entered the party, which had harmed it.
He said the party had committed mistake in Delhi when Arvind Kejriwal resigned from the post of chief minister, adding that Kejriwal should also not have contested the Lok Sabha elections.
He said instead of contesting the elections he should have campaigned for party candidates in the country. Had he campaigned in Punjab for few more days, the party would have won at least eight Lok Sabha seats in the state, Dr Gandhi said.
He said if the assembly elections were held in Delhi, AAP would emerge victorious, adding that BJP was running away from the elections.

New Delhi, September 1: PM Narendra Modi’s Japan visit is bringing a bonanza of 35 billion dollars investment over the next five years in India to build smart cities and finance infrastructure projects. Japan will also supply financial, technical and operational support to introduce bullet trains in India.
Media reports that PM Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe during their summit talks also reaffirmed the importance of bilateral defence relations in their strategic partnership and agreed on greater defence equipment and technology cooperation.
The summit meeting took place on the third day of Modi's five-day visit to Japan when the two countries also decided to expedite talks on sale of US-2 amphibian aircraft to India for enhancing maritime security.
At a joint press conference, Abe also announced that as an example of Indo-Japan cooperation, Tokyo will help India in providing financial, technical and operational support to introduce Bullet trains, a project that Modi has been actively pursuing.
Japan will also help India in providing better connectivity with its neighbours, he said.
On the civil nuclear deal, which was expected to be finalised during the visit, Abe said they have directed the officials to accelerate negotiations for early conclusion of an agreement to strengthen partnership.
While India is said to be pursuing the deal with Japan on the template of the landmark Indo-US nuclear accord, Tokyo is said to be not that enthusiastic about that being the basis.
The 3.5 trillion yen( 34 billion USD) of investment from Japan to India including Official Development Assistance (ODA) during a 5-year period will be under the aegis of India Japan Investment Promotion Partnership for development of projects including infrastructure and building of smart cities.
The five-year period will also see the doubling of the presence of Japanese firms in India, Abe said.
Thanking Abe for providing him an opportunity to make Japan his first bilateral visit outside South Asia, Modi said," we both have decided to raise the relationship to a special strategic and global partnership by giving it a special emphasis".

Asserting that his visit ushered in a dawn of new era in Indo-Japan relations, Modi said there is no "limit" to partnership between the two countries.





India, Japan to cooperate to address regional challenges



Underlining that a closer and stronger bilateral strategic partnership is indispensable for advancing peace in the world, India and Japan today decided to promote economic and social development and engage with other nations to address regional challenges and promote peaceful resolution of disputes.

This was decided during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's meeting with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.

During the meeting, the two Prime Ministers affirmed their shared belief that "at a time of growing turmoil, tensions and transitions in the world, a closer and stronger strategic partnership between India and Japan is indispensable for a prosperous future for their two countries and for advancing peace, stability and prosperity in the world, in particular, in the inter-connected Asia, Pacific and Indian Ocean Regions".

"The two Prime Ministers decided, in particular, to draw on the strength of their two countries' shared values, convergent interests, and complementary skills and resources to build a strong partnership to promote economic and social development, capacity-building and infrastructure development in other interested countries and regions," a joint statement said.

They also affirmed their intention to engage with other countries in the region and beyond to address the region's challenges, deepen regional cooperation and integration, strengthen regional economic and security forums and promote peaceful resolution of disputes.

Modi said India considers Japan among its closest and most reliable partners and this relationship is "the highest priority for my government".

"This is not only because Japan is a vital partner for India's transformation, but also because India and Japan as two peace-loving and democratic nations can play an influential role in shaping the future of Asia and the world," he said.

"A successful India and a successful Japan will be of benefit to both countries. Even more, the relationship will be a force of peace, stability and prosperity in Asia and the world," the Prime Minister said.

The two Prime Ministers condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, irrespective of their perpetrators, origin and motivations.

They emphasised that the evolving character of terrorism called for stronger international partnership in combating terrorism, including through increased sharing of information and intelligence. ....

Special CBI Judge Madhu Jain rejected Tejinder Singh's bail application and sent him to judicial custody till October20. Meanwhile, CBI also supplied the copy of charge sheet and other documents to Tejinder Singh, who had appeared in the court following court's summons in the case.During the day, he had moved the bail plea which was opposed by the CBI and was later rejected by the court.
Media reports that the court had taken cognisance of the charge sheet on August 28 after relying upon the statements of former Defence Minister A K Antony, V K Singh and other witnesses whose testimonies were recorded by the agency during the probe.The CBI in its charge sheet had alleged that in August-September 2010, the file pertaining to procurement of 1,676Tatra vehicles was pending before V K Singh, who is now a Minister of State of External Affairs and Minister of Statein-charge of Department of Northeast Region.

Chandigarh, September 1: In order to promote crop diverfsication in the state by optimally utilizing the capacity of juicing plants run by the Punjab Agro Juices Limited (PAJL), the Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal sanctioned Rs 3.73 crore for the purchase of ultra modern machinery required for the up-gradation of both these plants at Abohar and Hoshiarpur
Disclosing this here today a spokesperson of the Chief Minister's Office said that Badal cleared the file to this effect, this morning.
As per the decision, the Chief Minister gave nod to install Poly Citrus, Poly press and Photofinisher machines worth Rs 1.77 crore besides Fruit and vegetable compressor machine at Abohar plant to be utilized for processing of chilly (Red and Green), Ginger, Garlic, Onion and carrot at a cost of Rs 51 lakh. Likewise, he also approved the setting up of two dryers for making the residue of fruits and vegetables saleable. In order to package the juices produced from these juicing plants, Badal also gave a go ahead for setting up bottling plant at a cost of Rs 75 lakh in Hoshiarpur.
It may be recalled that these efforts of the state government were in consonance with its flagship program of diverfsication of agriculture coupled with value addition to ensure remunerative returns to the fruit and vegetable growers. The Juicing plants set up by the state government at Abohar and Hoshiarpur have processed a record 15000 tonnes of tomatoes and other fruits like watermelon, litchi and pears during this year. Likewise, the state government has set a target of processing 10000 tonnes of kinnows in the coming season. The Chief Minister's approval for fresh funds would help upgrading the facilities at both these plants, which would result in processing of kinnows with improved and latest technology.
With equipping up of both these plants with the high end technology the processing of maximum fruits of Punjab like watermelon, pears, litchi, guava, carrot and others would be ensured to enhance its value addition on one hand and to ensure handsome returns to cultivators on the other. With the setting up bottling plants the processing and marketing of the ready to serve drinks in retail packaging would be facilitated. The up-gradation and strengthening of both these plants would go a long way in promoting the horticulture in the state thereby saving the only available natural resources of the state in terms of fertile soil and water besides supplementing the income of the farmers.
The latest machinery and infra structure in these juicing plants would provide an opportunity to the PAJL to establish their products as premium brands to enable them to compete with the national and global players like Hindustan UniLever Ltd, Cremica, Pagro Foods, Del Monte, Capricorn and Mother Diary, which were already using this state-of-the art technology.....

Expressing deep concern to honor the family of assailants former chief Minister of Punjab Beant Singh by S.G.P.C last evening.
It may be mentioned here yesterday, family member of human Bomb Dilwar Singh who had assassinated the serving Chief Minister of Punjab Beant Singh was honored at the highest Sikh temporal seat Akal Takht amidst the presence of sizeable gathering of radical Sikhs.

Dilawar Singh who was human Bomb had blown himself to assassinate Beant Singh.

Bangi Ruldu Singh (Bathinda), September 1 : Rubbishing the claims of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to form government in Punjab after 2017 assembly elections as a ‘fool’s paradise’, the Chief Minister Punjab Parkash Singh Badal said that the AAP would meet the same fate as it had in the recently concluded by-elections where the party candidates’ securities too were forfeited.
Talking to media persons on thanks giving tour of Talwandi Sabo assembly
segment Badal said that the AAP candidates have lost their securities
in the Talwandi Sabo and Patiala by-elections which was an indicator enough to make AAP workers realize that the party was near oblivion in Punjab. He added that though in a democratic country every person has right to contest elections but people repose faith in only those parties that have credibility and that work on the path of serving masses.
He said that the people of Delhi gave AAP an opportunity to form its government but party president Arvind Kejriwal betrayed their faith by resigning from the post of Chief Minister. Badal added that the intelligent voters will never believe a party that betrayed people.
He added that for the past seven years the stable SAD-BJP alliance in state
is ushering in development and prosperity and due to its credibility the people of Punjab have re-elected it creating a history.
When asked about the Indian National Lok Dal leader Dushyant Chautala
selecting Parkash Singh Badal as the main campaigner for INLD in Haryana assembly elections, Badal said that he would canvass to dislodge anti-Sikh Congress from Haryana.
At the thanks giving tour, Badal directed water supply department to ensure that water paucity in every village were solved so that people do not face any kind of problem.

The Chief Minister today expressed gratitude to the people of Jeevan Singh Wala, Naseeb Pura, Kot Bakhtu, Bangi Ruldu Singh, Bangi Nihal Singh, Bangi Ruldu and Bangi Deepa villages for emerging Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu victorious from the constituency with a record margin which has infused energy in the cadre.

Badal perpetuating corruption and encouraging corrupt officials

Don’t adopt cavalier attitude towards the health of children: Bajwa

Chandigarh, September 1: Expressing serious concern over the cavalier attitude of the Parkash Singh Badal government in Punjab towards the anganwari children who have not been supplied ration for the last several months, the state Congress chief, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa today dubbed it as extreme example of non-performance and non-governance.

Chandigarh, September 1: Expressing serious concern over the cavalier attitude of the Parkash Singh Badal government in Punjab towards the anganwari children who have not been supplied ration for the last several months, the state Congress chief, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa today dubbed it as extreme example of non-performance and non-governance.

In a statement, he said this state of affairs was shocking as it is the children mostly from the families from the lower strata of the society who were being taken care of in the anganwaris and nothing could be more shocking that the state government had failed to arrange ration for them for the mid-day meal due to bankruptcy.

“Here is the government which keeps on parroting the development theme while its practice at the ground level is to the contrary. This also questioned the often repeated claims by the Deputy Chief Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal about there being no financial crisis in the state”, he added.

He asserted winning elections through rigging, money and muscle power along with the misuse of official machinery was altogether different and the irony was that the Badal government claimed such victories as the vote for development. He pointed out in Talwandi Sabo, the complaints by the people about the lack of basic amenities on the very first day of Mr Badal’s sangat darshan programme should be an eye opener. He said these complaints flew in the face of the claims made by the Badals that the massive mandate in Talwandi Sabo was for development.

Taking pot shots at Mr Badal for asking the government officials at Talwandi Sabo as to how much cut they received while carrying out development works, the PPCC chief said either he should take strong action against the culprits or confess that his writ did not run in the state and he was helpless. In case the Chief Minister had the information, he should act against such officials rather than betraying his own ineptitude. It had been known to Mr Badal all along as he was in the saddle for the fifth term but strangely, he had never given the signal of being tough against corruption and the reasons were too obvious. In a manner, Badal is directly perpetuating corruption and encouraging the corrupt officials.

Mr Bajwa said it was the neglect of the children taken care of at the anganwaris during the day which was all the more serious and betrayed total apathy towards such a sensitive issue. He felt that nothing could be more important than the health of the children and any government showing such wilful neglect had no right to be in office.

He called upon Mr Badal to disburse funds to the anganwaris by giving this issue a top priority.....

Dilip Chenoy, MD and CEO, National Skill Development Corporation was the Hon’ble Chief Guest at the event while Mr. Dalip Sharma, Regional Director, PHD Chamber was the Guest of Honor. Dr. Anshu Kataria, Chairman, Aryans Group of Colleges presided over the event.
Dr. Anshu Kataria, Chairman, Aryans Group of Colleges began the event with his address speech.

Addressing the audience at the seminar, Dilip Chenoy, MD & CEO, National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) said, “There is an urgent need for the industry &academia to come together and contribute to the skilling ecosystem by designing diversified skill training programs. This will empower the youth and help them become gainfully employed or self-employed. The focus should be on skilling, up-skilling and re-skilling across all sectors, according to the industry standards defined by the Sector Skill Councils. We have taken up this challenge and I am sure with our wide network of 150 partners and 31 Sector Skill Councils, we will be able to set-up a successful skilling ecosystem in the country.”


“Our target is to skill 3.3 million youth in 2014-15. The target committed for the current fiscal is nearly three and half times of what was set and achieved in 2013-14.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Dalip Sharma said, “In today’s competitive world, industries look for skilled manpower as there is little time to invest in their training. When an employee joins, he is expected to have a basic skill to adapt to his new role. Thanks to NSDC and its training partners, skilling programs have become more accessible today. I encourage all candidates here, to plan for their career carefully and acquire technical and soft skills, which will help increase their efficiency and productivity.”

Chandigarh, September 1 (Courtesy :HT) : Comedian-turned-politician and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member of Parliament (MP) from Sangrur Bhagwant Mann, who has reportedly become the most popular Punjabi politician on the social media, said here on Sunday that "politics is a serious business and people give their love only to those who raise their issues seriously".
Having a monthly growth of 1.11 lakh fans since he became the MP, Mann has a total of 7.36 lakh followers on his Facebook page and he has been the most liked politician during the last two months as he left Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal far behind as the latter's account on Facebook has only 5.17 lakh followers. Harsimrat Kaur Badal, with 3.17 lakh followers is next in the line, followed by Captain Amarinder Singh with 1.76 lakh followers and Bikram Singh Majithia has only 73,453 fans.
In popularity on the social media, Mann has also defeated Manpreet Badal, with whom he started the political career in People's Party of Punjab as the latter has only 65,000 fans on Facebook. Other young politicians of the state such as Ravneet Bittu, Vijay Inder Singla and Manish Tewari are also below the one-lakh mark.
Bhagwant Mann was equally famous on YouTube also and his most popular upload on YouTube is his poem in which he sarcastically has criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his pre-poll promises of bringing 'achche din' (betters days). This upload got 4.81 lakh hits in only 38 days. 6,459 people liked the upload. Bhagwant Mann has uploaded almost all his speeches in Parliament and all the uploads have got more than 40,000 hits, on the Youtube.
Bhagwant Mann also has more than 12,500 followers on Twitter, but he is far behind than former union minister Manish Tewari, who has 78,600 followers on the Twitter. But Mann is ahead of other leaders such as Captain Amarinder Singh (4,123), Harsimrat Kaur (2,067) and deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal (1,329) and Manpreet Badal (5,697)
Talking to Hindustan Times, Bhagwant Mann, who is on a thanksgiving tour here, said, "I am happy that the people across the country are giving me their love and support. In Punjab, educated youths are looking for a change in the political system, even the NRIs of the state are supporting me on the social media."
"My interview with BBC also got more than 64,000 hits in one month on YouTube, and my another upload in which I raised the issue of ETT teachers in Parliament got 70,000 hits," he added.
On the authenticity of fans on social networking websites, Mann said, "My followers are genuine and anybody can verify the fact. There are some politicians in the state who purchase fake likes on Facebook, but now the technology is advanced and anybody can check their authenticity."
Mann has also managed to create his fans outside the country as out of a total of 7.16 lakh followers on Facebook, about 22% fans are out of India, including 27,273 in Canada and 21,238 in Australia. With a view to increase his popularity, he has also created a channel on the YouTube, that enables his followers to chat with him.
