Phoolka who has been handling 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots cases and Mr. Harinder Singh Khalsa – Member Parliament from Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab, visited the riots affected areas of Saharanpur. They interacted with the victims whose shops and other commercial establishments have been destroyed in the riots. They also interacted with the members of the communities Sikh, Muslims and also Hindu Organizations and pleaded with them to maintain peace and harmony.
Mr. Harinder Singh Khalsa, Member Parliament, informed the victims that he met Sh. Mulayam Singh Yadav, yesterday and pleaded to Mr. Yadav that there has been cordial relations among the Sikhs and Muslims but some miscreants have stage managed these attacks. Mr. Khalsa requested Mr. Yadav that these miscreants should be identified and dealt with sternly. Mr. Yadav assured him that the U.P. government will take appropriate steps.
Mr. Phoolka informed the affected shop owners that the plea of the administration that no compensation for loss of commercial properties has ever been given in any riots, is absolutely wrong. Almost in every riot the compensation for commercial properties is also given. He mentioned that in the Andhra Pradesh High Court J.K. Traders Vs. State of Andhra Pradesh wherein the Theatre was gutted in the riots after the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in 1991, Andhra Pradesh High Court granted the Compensation of Rs. 1 Crore for the loss suffered by the owners.
Mr. Phoolka also mentioned that Madras High Court in the Case R. Gandhi Vs. Union of India had directed the Tamilnadu Government to give the full compensation to the victims of Coimbatore Riots in accordance with the report of the Collector of Coimbatore assessing the loss.
Mr. Phoolka also quoted from the Prime Minister Relief Package of 2006 for riots Victims in which Clause VI clearly mentioned that Compensation for loss of Commercial Properties was also given. Clause (VI) reproduced below:
“Ex-gratia for damaged uninsured commercial / industrial properties would be paid @ 10 times the amount minus the amount already paid”
The government should immediately conduct the survey and assess the loss suffered by the victims of commercial properties, vehicles and residential houses.
The victims should not destroy the evidence and clean the shops till the survey is conducted.
The government needs to take stern action and punish the guilty who have instigated this violence.
Mr. Khalsa and Mr. Phoolka have demanded that in view of the repeated incidents of commercial violence in U.P., the U.P. government should consider getting the group insurance of the properties done. The victims should get immediate and full compensation of loss of their property.....

New Delhi, August 1: The death toll in Pune landslide tragedy has risen to 63, even as NDRF personnel braved hostile weather and difficult terrain for the third day to look for signs of life under the huge mound of debris in the village flattened by the fury of nature.
Media reports that according to the District Collector Control Room, till now, 63 people including 25 men, 28 women and 10 children have been killed in the landslide while eight injured persons have been rescued and are being treated at nearby hospitals.
300 personnel of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), which is leading the rescue efforts, have been braving hostile weather and difficult terrain as they continued to look for life under the huge mound of debris as hope for more lives slowly dimmed 48 hours after the village in Ambegaon taluka was hit by the landslide.

Intermittent rains have continued to hamper the rescue operations being carried out since Wednesday morning when a massive landslide buried under its debris 44 houses trapping about 160 residents of the wiped out village.

NDRF jawans are moving JCBs and dumpers cautiously to ensure safety of possible survivors under mud and stone debris of the hillock that caved-in on July 30 even as over 100 people are still believed to be trapped inside.

While addressing an impressive gathering of enthusiastic SAD-BJP workers at a local palace after the filing of nomination by SAD candidate Jeet Mohinder Sidhu here on Friday, Badal said that NDA government led by Prime Minister Narindra Modi will give a major boost to the overall development of the state, while the state had suffered adversely due to the step motherly treatment meted out by the Congress led UPA Government in the past.

Chandigarh, August 1: Tension between BJP and the SAD refuses to die down despite the “all is well” claims by deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal. BJP’s Anil Joshi, the local bodies minister, who had earlier threatened an agitation over the change in rules for input tax credit, has now vowed to take up the non-issuance of noobjection certificates (NOCs) by the Punjab Urban Planning and Development Authority (PUDA) for registration of properties in the erstwhile illegal colonies.
Joshi, against whom the SAD on Wednesday complained to state BJP chief Kamal Sharma, said on Thursday: “A large number of registries of such properties are held up because PUDA is not issuing NOCs; even when applicants have submitted the heavy fee for regularisation as per norms.” Joshi was talking to HT in Jalandhar during his brief stay to participate in a private function. Observers have said that heavy fee levied for regularisation of illegal colonies was one issue that went against the SAD-BJP in the Lok Sabha polls, in which the alliance failed to raise its tally despite a nationwide BJP surge.
In a statement on Joshi’s earlier threat of agitation, SAD general secretary Maheshinder Grewal had said on Wednesday that Joshi must respect coalition dharma and should have discussed the tax credit-related amendment in the Punjab VAT Act at the CM or deputy CM’s level before issuing a statement. To this, Joshi reacted, “I don’t want to come into the blame game. Yet, let me tell you, I had discussed the VAT issue with the deputy CM in the presence of chief parliamentary secretary and Jalandhar North MLA KD Bhandari and state trader board association chief Narottam Ratti; but to no avail.”....

Lambi (Sri Muktsar Sahib), August 1 : Reiterating that the efforts of Haryana Government to wrest the control of Gurdwaras in the state through its remote controlled ‘modern Mahants’ would not be tolerated at any cost, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today said that the future course of action to oppose this sinister move of Congress at appropriate time would be decided after due deliberations with the Sikh panth.
Addressing the gatherings in village Panniwala, Bodiwala, Ratta Kheda Wadda and Chotta, Aalamwala, Aspaalan and others during the Sangat Darshan of Lambi assembly segment here today, the Chief Minister said that on the directions of Jathedar Sri Akal Takht Sahib, which was the supreme religious body of the Sikhs, they have called off the agitation against the separate committee in Haryana. However, he said that if due care was not taken to assuage the religious sentiments of Sikhs, which have been deeply hurt by this anti-Sikh step of Haryana government, then relevant strategy would be chalked out regarding the protest in consultation with the Sikh Panth.
The Chief Minister, while recalling the enormous sacrifices made by Sikh panth for formation of Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC) during the British Raj, said that the step of Haryana government was aimed at weakening this august body. He reminded the people that ever since independence the Congress party has attacked Punjab politically, socially, economically and even religiously. Mr. Badal said that by constituting separate committee for management of Gurdwaras in the state, the Congress has inflicted a third major blow to Sikh psyche, which could not be tolerated at any cost.
The Chief Minister further said that the step of Haryana government was undemocratic as the people rejected by the Sikh electorate have been handed over the reins of Gurdwaras through this move. He said that these agents of Congress had championed the cause of separate committee in Haryana but the wise voters of Haryana had foiled their plans by rejecting them in the SGPC elections. Mr. Badal said that the Sikhs of Haryana had voted in the favor of Shiromani Akali Dal by routing these Congress agents from all the 11 seats of the state.
The Chief Minister said that due to the anti-Punjab stance of the previous UPA government, state’s economy had passed through the worst phase in the last decade. He said that the discriminatory policies of the UPA had completely shattered the agrarian economy of Punjab adding that even the UPA’s policy to grant fiscal incentives states led to the flight of industry from the state. However, Mr. Badal said that with the formation of NDA government at the Centre hey days of the state would be soon back.
The Chief Minister further said that the concept of Sangat Darshan was an integral part of state’s governance as it virtually brought the government at the doorsteps of people thereby bridging the communication gap between the masses and the administration, which normally hindered the process of progress. Mr. Badal said that besides acting as a catalyst for redressing the grievances of people, the Sangat Darshan programs were also helpful for the state government to adjudge the working of officers of the various departments.
Reiterating the firm commitment of the state government to make Punjab a ‘drug free state’, the Chief Minister said that the state government has followed a twin strategy for wiping out this menace from Punjab as on one hand massive drive has been initiated to cut the supply line of the drugs and on the other hand a campaign has been embarked for detoxifying the drug addicts in drug de-addiction centers. He said that not only this but the state government was also making efforts to ensure proper rehabilitation of the drug addicts in Punjab. Mr. Badal said that 22 Rehabilitation centers were being opened by the state government across the state to rehabilitate the drug addicts by imparting them skill training so that they could live a life with dignity and self respect.
Replying to a query regarding the recent hike in Price of Diesel, the Chief Minister said that the prices of essential commodities should not be increased. However, he welcomed the reduction in petrol prices.
The Chief Minister was accompanied by Chairman Punjab Agro Jathedar Dyal Singh Kolianwali, Member Punjab Women Commission Mrs. Veerpal Kaur Tarmala, his Special Principal Secretaries Mr. KJS Cheema and Dr. SK Karunaraju and Deputy Commissioner Mr. Jaskiran Singh. ....
