In a statement, Nepalese police said the death toll has risen to 3,617 people. That does not include the 22 people killed in the avalanche on Mount Everest. Nepalese Home ministry's national disaster management division said more than 6,830 people were injured. Quoting officials, news agency PTI reports five Indians, including the daughter of an Indian embassy employee, were among those killed in the quake.
Thousands of people were forced to spend the two consecutive nights sleeping in open in makeshift plastic tents barely shielding them from pouring rain.

India, which has mounted massive relief operations in Nepal as part of 'Operation Maitri', sent a team of senior officials from ministries of Home, Defence, External Affairs and National Disaster Management Authority to Nepal to coordinate rescue and relief operations in the quake-ravaged country.

The team will also monitor the evacuation of stranded Indians in Nepal. Sources said the team will coordinate with the Nepalese government in the salvage operation and assess the damage.

Till now development projects worth Rs 7.17 Crore have been started, out of which 39 projects worth Rs.6.89 Crore have already been completed”.

Divulging the details on Monday, the deputy commissioner S. Amar Partap Singh Virk said that the programme aimed at developing the native villages of Punjabis residing abroad was started for the betterment of the villages with the help of philanthropist NRIs. In this scheme, an individual or group of NRIs may contribute fifty percent of the total cost of the estimate and the rest amount would be spent by the state as matching grant. “Besides, giving a fillip to the development of villages, the scheme would also go a long way in strengthening the ties of the NRIs especially the second generations of Punjabis living abroad with their motherland" added the DC adding that it would virtually prove a boon for the coming generations of Punjabis living abroad to have emotional bond with their roots.

Patiala/Khanna, April 27, 2015: Congress Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha Capt Amarinder Singh today asked the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal that he along with his ministers should better stage a dharna outside the Prime Minister’s Office to press for the demands of farmers and not show his helplessness in not being able to get time from the PM.
Talking to reporters after visiting the grain markets at Patiala and Khanna, the former Chief Minister said, if the Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not giving time to Mr Badal, he should better stage a dharna instead of loitering around and issuing hollow threats to seek his attention.
Capt Amarinder visited the grain markets of Patiala and Khanna along with the Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Vidhan Sabha, Sunil Jakhar, senior leaders Laal Singh, Ms Preneet Kaur and MLAs, Sadhu Singh Dharamsot, Gurkirat Kotli, Amrik Dhillon and Hardayal Kambhoj, and talked to the farmers and asked about the problems they were facing. He said, the farmers told him that they were not getting any payment and instead they (the farmers) were given receipts of their produce on plain papers without any assurance as when they will get the payments.
He recalled that when he was the Chief Minister he had led a dharna outside the then Prime Minister Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s office to flag his attention towards the problems in lifting of the crops by the central agencies and hike in the Minimum Support Price.
“But Mr Badal wants to have the cake and eat it too”, he observed, while pointing out, on the one hand he was conveying that he was not happy with the NDA government while at the same time he was not prepared to withdraw his daughter in law from the union ministry.
Asserting that Mr Badal had failed to convince the central government about giving relief and relaxation to farmers in Punjab for the damaged wheat crop, he pointed out, the Haryana government had managed to get massive relief and hundred per cent relaxation for the damaged crops there.
Capt Amarinder said, by trying to shift the entire blame on the central government, Mr Badal was trying to escape the responsibility. “Both the central as well as the state governments are to be blamed for the current plight of farmers and Mr Badal in no way can claim that he is not responsible”, he emphasised.
To a question on the reports of the Badal government trying to play down the number of farmers’ suicides in Punjab, he said, this was so characteristic of Mr Badal to deny everything and he was doing the same in case of the farmers’ suicides.
Others present on the occasion included Ved Prakash Gupta, Bir Devinder Singh, Surjit Dhiman, Madan Lal Jalalpur, Nirmal Singh Shatrana, Sanjeev Bittu, KK Sharma, Pawan Dewan, Milkiat Singh Dakha, Tej Parkash, Kaka Lohgarh, Jagpal Singh Khangura, Lakhbir Singh Lakha, Harinder Bhambri, Satbir Singh, Damanjit Singh Mohi, Iqbal Singh, and others.....

April 27, 2015: Thousands of Indian Youth Congress (IYC) activists and several farmers’ organization under the leadership of Amarinder Singh Raja, President, IYC, spearheaded a massive protest march towards the parliament to voice the issues and sufferings of the farmers from the grass root to the Parliament.

Shri Amarinder Singh Raja said that the rising incidence of farmers’ suicide, inadequate procurement of foodgrains and vegetables, appalling financial help by the Central and the State Governments to farmers owing to untimely rains damaging their crops and lack of fair and remunerative prices for farm produce, alarms us that there is an ardent need for an immediate resolution and policies pertaining to farm livelihoods. Cultivators have been very adversely affected by continuing low prices of their produce, and the economic condition of many farmers has reached crisis point. All this is because the government is no longer able to meet the basic objectives of agricultural price policy to stabilize prices and ensure producer incentives measures.

Randeep Singh Surjewala, former President of the IYC and Media Incharge of the AICC also participated in the march and said that the Modi government has miserably failed to provide relief to farmers reeling under crop loss in vast areas and is only making a callous promise that farmers will get a "good" price for their land and losses. Furthermore various other issues such as, short supply of Urea, Minimum Support Price for farm produce, drought relief & rehabilitation package, etc. have escalated the crisis for the farmers, Surjewala added.

While addressing the rally Amarinder Singh Raja said that the Indian Youth Congress strongly believes that in order to strengthen the Indian economy and to continue on the path of sustainable inclusive rapid economic growth, then our policymakers must give more attention to the prerequisites of the agriculture sector and all policies pertinent to it. Today an atmosphere of deceit and demagogy persists to ensure smooth takeover of productive land for corporate profiteering and real estate speculation. He also submitted a memorandum to Shri Mallikarjun Kharge, Leader of the Congress Party in Lok Sabha, and demanded that an exhaustive dialogue, discussion or debate in the Parliament must be ensued by the Government, all the political parties and members of the parliament to redress the acute farm distress in India.

Thousands of Youth Congress activists were arrested and detained in the Parliament police station, but were released later in the evening.....

Farmers suffered maximum under the BJP rule alleges Kiran

Six months of huge let-down by BJP Govt, says Kiran Choudhry

Chandigarh, April 27, 2015: Ms Kiran Choudhry, Leader of the Haryana Congress Legislature Party (CLP), has described the six-month rule of the BJP Government, led by Mr Manohar Lal Khattar, as six months of agony for the farmers, infamy for the working class; and double whammy for those who voted for the BJP with great hopes and expectations.

Chandigarh, April 27, 2015: Ms Kiran Choudhry, Leader of the Haryana Congress Legislature Party (CLP), has described the six-month rule of the BJP Government, led by Mr Manohar Lal Khattar, as six months of agony for the farmers, infamy for the working class; and double whammy for those who voted for the BJP with great hopes and expectations. With not even a single promise made in the run-up to the polls being honoured, the Khattar Government has badly let down the people who are beginning to rue their decision to vote for the BJP.
In a statement issue here today, the former Excise and Taxation Minister listed the counts on which the BJP Government has gone back on the promises made to the people. “The farmers have suffered the maximum under the BJP rule. So much so, some have been driven to end their lives as they got no relief from the Khattar Government after their crops were devastated by the unseasonal rain and hailstorms. They have been made to run from pillar to post and brave police lathis to get urea. And now that they have salvaged and brought to mandis what remained of their ruined crops, it is not being lifted by the state agencies. The bitter reality remains that the farmers never had it so bad from any government in the state”, she added.
The state government employees are getting restive over the refusal of the Khattar government to honour even a single promise made to them. The unfulfilled promises include paying them Punjab pay-scales; doubling the education allowance for their children; and regularizing ad hoc employees. This has made them, especially the computer teachers, hit the streets, she said.
The common man is angry over the hike in prices of essential commodities. The hike in VAT on petrol is anti-farmer, anti-people and inflationary. Water and power are in short supply and the lay man sees no ray of hope under the BJP rule which had promised “Achhe Din”. “If this is what the BJP Government calls satisfactory, then heavens should save the people of Haryana,” Ms Choudhry stated.
While the BJP Government has not been able to solve the long-pending and contentious issue of water sharing between Punjab and Haryana, it keeps promising ‘Har Khet Ko Paani’. “Where from will it bring sufficient water supply to keep its word, Ms Choudhry asked.
“Even the party high command is not satisfied with the performance of state government in the past six months and advised the Chief Minister to shed some of his own portfolios and asked to reshuffle Cabinet to manage things better,” she stated. “The six-month rule of the BJP Government has been a period of huge let-down and total disappointment,” Ms Choudhry added.....

High Level meeting on cleaning of rivers

Chandigarh, April 27, 2015: In a bid to ensure effective monitoring for the cleaning of river waters in the state, the Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today gave nod to install ultra-modern Management Information System
(MIS) at all the Sewerage Treatment Plants (STPs) in the state for maintaining a regular check on the BOD level of treated water.
A decision to this effect was taken in a high level meeting held under the chairmanship of the Chief Minister here at CMO this morning. Presiding over the meeting, the Chief Minister, while underscoring the need of an effective mechanism to ensure zero discharge of polluted water in the rivers, said that the MIS could play an instrumental role for this purpose as it would enable the officers to have daily monitoring of the BOD level in treated waste water. Mr. Badal said that though a network of STPs have been set across the
state but regular monitoring of the BOD level in treated water of these plants was must. He said that the state government has already prescribed the BOD limits in water to 10, which could be strictly monitored only with the help of an advanced system like MOS as it would give daily report of BOD limits in treated water to the top brass of the state government.
In another significant decision aimed at reducing the wastage of water, the Chief Minister also gave approval to install meter connections for all urban households with volumetric based charging in cities across the state so that consumption of the water by every household was checked. It was apprised in the meeting that the city residents were getting more water supply then the amount 135 litre per capita prescribed by the Government of India thereby resulting in the sheer wastage of valuable resource of nature. So, Mr. Badal said that these meters must be installed as it would ensure the judicious use of water besides enhancing the income of the urban Local Bodies.
The Chief Minister also asked the Local Government department to explore the feasibility of collecting the waste water from kitchens, washrooms and toilets of the houses at a same place so that they could be properly treated in the STPs. He also asked the officers to ensure that the work of upgrading the existing STPS and the construction of new STPs was completed at the shortest possible time so that zero discharge of polluted water in rivers could be ensured. Mr. Badal also laid thrust on promoting the treated waste water for the irrigational purposes so that this water could also be optimally utilised.
Prominent amongst other present in the meeting included Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Mr. SK Sandhu, Secretary Local Government Mr. Ashok Kumar Gupta, Chairman Punjab Pollution Control Board Mr. Manpreet Singh Chatwal, Deputy Commissioners of Jalandhar and Roopnagar Mr. KK Yadav and Mrs. Tanu Kahsyap, Commissioner Municipal Corporation Ludhiana Mr. GK Singh, Managing Director PSIEC Mr. Amit Dhaka and Member Secretary Punjab Pollution Control Board Babu Lal.....

Amritsar: A Sikh Dhaba owner and his son who ran an eatery under the historic Dharahara tower in Kathmandu were killed in the temblor that wrought widespread devastation in Nepal on Saturday. They belonged to Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Dharahara Tower was built in 1832 on the orders of the queen and tower had recently reopened to the public. Visitors could ascend a spiral staircase to a viewing platform around 200 feet above the city.

Both Sujan Singh (50) and his son Parvinder (24) were in the dhaba when the quake shook the city, and died after a part of the tower collapsed on the dhaba roof. The Sikh family had been running the dhaba for the past around 30 years.

Sujan's brother Manjit told mediapersons, "Parvinder's wife is staying with the family in Jammu and is expecting their second child. Sujan had called us from the dhaba around 10.30am. The quake occurred around an hour after that. Both Sujan and Parvinder were inside the shop when tower collapsed on it."

Manjit spent three decades in Nepal before returning to Jammu a few years ago. He was in Delhi on Sunday to receive the bodies of his relatives. "Sujan went to Nepal at the age of 11 and started his own dhaba after doing menial jobs during the initial years. Parvinder had joined him only a few years back and they were running the eatery quite successfully," he added.

Pritam Singh, a Sikh businessman and president of Guru Nanak Sikh Sangat, Kathmandu, confirmed that the father and son had died after their shop got buried under the debris of the tower. Sujan was a member of various Sikh organizations and played a proactive role in functions organized by the community in Kathmandu, he recalled.

"We have made arrangements for langar to 500-600 people every day. We are hoping that some provisions sent by the SGPC and other Sikh organizations would reach here in a day or two," he added.....

Captain hits hard on Badal

Amarinder blames Badal for resorting to blackmail politics to hide his own failures

CHANDIGARH, April 27: Congress Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha Capt Amarinder Singh today lashed out at the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal for resorting to his characteristic ways of political blackmail. “It is so characteristic of Mr Badal to rake up Panthic issues for personal vested interests”, he remarked, while referring to Mr Badal’s speech at the Northern Zonal Council in New Delhi recently.
Capt Amarinder maintained that for Mr Badal no Sikh is a true Sikh if he does not succumb to his (Badal’s) line. “If any Sikh is with the Congress or any other party like BJP, he is not a Sikh for Mr Badal”, he observed while pointing out, “he (Mr Badal) had even termed Panth Rattan Sardar Gurcharan Singh Tohra and Jagdev Singh Talwandi as traitors”.
The former Chief Minister said, this was the last and desperate bid of Mr Badal to rake up panthic issues to conceal his own failures as he had realised ground slipping beneath his feet. “Hazoor Sahib has an independent management body and they have every right to appoint their own people to the committee”, he pointed out, while asking, “why should Mr Badal have any objection, particularly when the Gurdwara management there was being run very efficiently?”
Just because someone does not belong to Mr Badal’s Akali Dal does not mean he has no right to hold a prominent position in the affairs of Hazoor Sahib, Capt Amarinder asserted, while adding, similarly the Haryana SGPC was being demanded by the Sikhs of Haryana. “It is Mr Badal who is trying to interfere and deny them (the Haryana Sikhs) their right and not anybody else”, he asserted.
He said, Mr Badal should better have raised the issue of farmers like his Haryana counterpart did and got heavy concessions and relaxations for procurement of wheat in that state. “But, Mr Badal is never interested in anyone else other than his own self and hence is raising the imaginary issues like alienation”, he observed, while adding, if anybody is alienated it is the youth of Punjab who is jobless and does not see any ray of hope. “And it is Mr Badal who is responsible for this alienation and nobody else”, he remarked.
Capt Amarinder said, Mr Badal should be more concerned about the drug addiction that has ruined the entire generation. “So many young boys have been hooked to this scourge with free supply being facilitated by the Akali government in the state”, he pointed out, while adding, “if there is any serious problem Punjab was facing it was not any alienation due to any perceived interference as Mr Badal will try to make others believe, but the future of the young generation which he (Mr Badal) has destroyed by his callous silence and connivance”.

Amritsar
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), Sikhs’ paramount representative body, is all set to press for elimination of ‘blacklist’ of NRI Sikh leaders, taking refuge in foreign countries. The religious body had already taken up the case with the successive governments in Centre but with NDA in power, SGPC expect favourable response.

The SGPC had formed a special cell to gather information regarding Sikhs abroad who are banned to entre India due to their radical ideological inclinations. The Union Ministry for Home Affairs and central agencies has prepared the list during terrorism days followed by operation Bluestar in 1984. The SGPC now wants the list to be written off in the changed security scenario.

SGPC functionaries even handed over a memorandum in this regard to Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent visit to Golden Temple. “It is a long-pending demand and we are definitely reminding that the Centre take lenient view to eliminate the age old list,” said SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar.

He said the SGPC general house had passed a resolution in this regard several times in past years.

It is pertinent to mention that SGPC had taken up the same case with the last UPA government also but the-then PM Dr Manmohan Singh had declined to eliminate the list and had rejected the proposal, though he had agreed that there was a possibility of reviewing the list.

“We want the list to be eliminated though even if it is reviewed with the names deleted, it will be acceptable,” said Makkar.

The list comprises names of at least 117 foreign-based Sikhs in US, Canada, UK and other European countries and even Pakistan who were supporting or funding separatists in Punjab then. The Sikhs demand that as peace prevails, there is no need of such a list as this is discriminatory and prepared with prejudice. The Central authorities and officials of the Union Home Ministry had maintained in the past that security reasons force them to maintain the list in the status quo.

There are also reports that there is more than one lists present. The SGPC is under pressure as the NRIs have been pressing with their demand that the blacklist which is major hindrance for ‘homecoming’ of a number of Sikh leaders, is fully eliminated. “I have said earlier also that the blacklist is discriminatory. There are names in the list who have nothing to do with terrorism,” said Makkar.

Ferozepur, April 27: The Punjab Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal has invited the Sarv Sikhya Abhiyan (SSA)/Rashtriya Madhyama Sikhya Abhiyan (RMSA) Office Employees Union – fighting for the regularization of service for the last 10 years – to discuss the various demands of the employees across the table.
