Chandigarh, May 3: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had proved its treacherous nature by withdrawing even the second supposedly neutral affidavit it submitted to the Supreme Court after withdrawing the first blatantly pro-Haryana affidavit on the SYL canal issue.

In a statement here today, SAD spokesman Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said the recent withdrawal of the second affidavit proved that AAP and its Convenor Arvind Kejriwal had no seriousness towards Punjab or its farmers. " If one is to see the present trend the day is not far when the AAP government in Delhi will file a third, fourth of even a fifth affidavit as per what suits the government on that particular date".

Dr Cheema said the sequence of events under which the second affidavit was withdrawn had also exposed the Delhi government and proved that Arvind Kejriwal had lied to Punjabis by claiming that the Delhi government counsel had filed the first pro- Haryana affidavit without consulting the government. "The AAP government caved in immediately when the counsel Mr Suresh Tripathy challenged this lie in the apex court", he added.

Terming this behaviour as making a mockery of both politics as well as the judicial system, the SAD asked Kejriwal to spell out his stand on the SYL canal. "Your first affidavit supported Haryana by saying the SYL should be constructed. Your second affidavit tried to confuse the issue by stating you only wanted your share of water and that it was up to Punjab and Haryana to decide how it lands in your State Delhi. You termed this affidavit as neutral even though everyone knows if you are to get water as per the 1976 reference as demanded by you it can be only through the medium of the SYL canal".

The SAD leader said that this latest act of treachery would spell doom for AAP as people of Punjab had seen through the political gimmicks of the party and would never trust it again. He said the latest withdrawal of a sworn affidavit had proven that AAP could do anything for petty gains. He said it had also proven that Arvind Kejriwal was a master chameleon who could change statements and even affidavits as and when it suited him.

The SAD leader said AAP had also challenged the pride of Punjabis through repeated betrayals on the SYL canal as well as host of other issues. "Now Punjabis are convinced they you will never stand with them on the SYL issue as you have refused to show any commitment to their cause. In direct contrast Punjabis know of the stand taken by chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on this issue and know that it will never be diluted, forget ever being changed", Dr Cheema added.-GP....

Zira(Ferozepur) May 3, 2016: In protest against hike inpetrol and diesel prices by the Central government, Youth Congress workers burn the effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Sheran Wala Chowk at Zira under the tutelage of Kulbir Singh Zira, Senior Vice President, Youth Congress Punjab.
Speaking on this occasion, Kulbir Singh Zira said, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised for ‘Achhe Din’ – Good Days – before coming into power but it looks that ‘Bad Days’ have started after formation of his government. There had been maximum inflation of essential commodities during his tenure.

Zira said, the hike in fuel prices is likely to affect all other commodities with the increase of transportation rates simultaneously. There is a great resentment among all categories of people.
Talking about the Punjab’s farmers, he said, the Punjab’s farmer is already under heavy debts and hands to mouth condition and with the increase of fuel prices, the farmers community will also be heavily burdened.
He said, the Centre and State governments are not coming forward to help the farmers and there is continued committing of suicides by them.
The tall claims of Chief Minister, Punjab on the stages during his speeches are confined to speeches only, he added.
The price of the produce by the farmer is decided by the Price Commission of India but the position is adverse as even the cost of the crop upto harvesting is not compensated, what to talk of profits.
Lambasting over the government, he said, the government is promoting the corporate houses only. The essential commodities like dals, onion etc. are stored by the traders and later on sell at their own fixed prices.
Large number of youth workers was present on this occasion to register their protest.

New Delhi, May 3, 2016: Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, Minister of Railways during a function held at Rail Bhawan today i.e. 03.05.2016 launched one E-enabled project, namely, Project Management & Information System (PMIS). Shri Manoj Sinha, Minister of State for Railways was especially present on the occasion. Railways Board Members and other dignitaries were also present on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said that the Indian Railways has numerous big projects throughout the country which are of crores of rupees and have many complexities. He said that proper monitoring and management of these big projects is the demand of the Indian Railways. He said that to provide best railway network in the country, Indian Railways needs two things; one is money and the second is proper monitoring of projects in which that money is to be spent. He said that it is necessary to keep proper monitoring and management of the existing projects instead of keep on launching new projects. He said that this new PMIS system will contain all the information about the ongoing projects which will help in reducing the completion time of the project. He said that when, on the one side, this new Application will help in fixing the responsibility for delay in projects on the other hand officers would be awarded for timely/early completion of projects.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister of State for Railways Shri Manoj Sinha said that this E-Enables Application will, certainly, be able to reduce the completion time of the project which will save money and ultimate will benefit Railways economically. He emphasized on the need of digitalization so that there can be proper monitoring of the lifecycle of the projects.

Salient Features of the Application: -

Indian Railways have over 600 major projects of network expansion and modernization costing around Rs 4.5 lakh crores.Now Railways have adopted approach of funding the projects through market borrowing (Institutional funding) to set its network expansion on high growth path. Capex increased from Rs 58 thousand crores in 2014-15 to Rs 93 thousand crores in 2015-16 and we have pegged our capex at Rs 1 lakh 21 thousand crores in 2016-17.In terms of commissioning/ addition of network, commissioning of over 2800 km Broad Gauge lines in 2015-16 against about 2000 Km in 2014-15 and against an average of 1529 Km per year in the preceding five years. In next 4 years, ambitious targets for commissioning of about 14 thousand kilometer BG track has been set.

Project Management and Information System (PMIS) is a step towards that direction. It is a web-enabled IT- Application to create a technology and knowledge platform to manage the entire lifecycle of complex railway projects. It is a step in leveraging resources and to empower railways & stakeholders in transforming the way projects are designed, built and commissioned.

PMIS is being implemented in the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramullah Rail Link (USBRL) Project as it has complexities of fragile geological formations and unstable geomorphology of young Himalayan Mountains, needing extensive investigation and treatment, extremely steep slopes and rugged terrain, coupled with inclement weather – project alignment remains snowbound for entire winter season and high seismicity.

Hence, it was decided to use information and communication technology to create a consolidated knowledge repository which will result in collaborative innovation, transparency and accountability. DroneRecording and CCTV coverage is being implemented as part of monitoring. PMIS comprises of various integrated modules Project Information and Collaboration Management Dashboard, Geology and Geographic Information, Tunnel, Bridge, Embankment, Yard & Station Design, and as-built drawings integrated with 3D models, Drawing& Document Management Workflow, Linear Project Management – Planning, Scheduling and Monitoring, Monitoring using drones equipped with video cameras and fixed CCTV cameras at construction sites,Contract and Claim Management, Budgeting and Cost Monitoring, Incident Management, Asset Management and user Management.

It is planned to roll out PMIS to all the major projects across the country. Benefits expected to be accrued from bringing all the projects on PMIS platform include online monitoring and mid-course correction to ensure faster execution, repository of design, drawings, resources, schedules etc. will help in better estimation and planning, improved designs and standardization of drawings, Optimal utilization of resources and faster decision making. -GP....

Ferozepur, May 3, 2016: Krantikari Manuvadi Morcha (KMM) Party President, R K Bhardwaj, Initiator of None Of The Above (NOTA) after covering various states in the country, who was here today in Ferozepur – a border town of Punjab, to call upon the voters to be sincere and cautious in the forthcoming Assembly elections for the use of last button of NOTA introduced by the Election Commission of India, cautiously to express their displeasure.
The idea of the NOTA initiator is to ensure voting for the right candidate and in case none is suitable then press only the last button – NOTA, to express their displeasure and open the path of ‘Cancellation of subject election in particular constituency and ensuring nomination of ideally acceptable candidates by various parties in future.
R.K.Bhardwaj, has served in Air Force as Electrical Engineer for 14 years and after retirement, running his own Power House Sub Station industry at Noida. He became active after the Mandal Commission when people were protesting against the reservation and fighting against this evil – reservation – like cancer. Since 1989, he is working on three issues, NOTA, Reservation and Defection and visits every state well before the election to put wiser the voters about the use of NOTA button.
Speaking to this correspondent, R K Bhardwaj said, Right voting is the holiest act in democracy and NOTA should be pressed only if none of the candidates is suitable. Voters should not blindly follow any trend based on fictitious and flimsy propaganda.
The Government should include strengthening of NOTA in its immediate programme for cleansing the politics besides clearing garbage of India for proving its sincerity because clean politics will automatically clean India, he added.
On Right to Reject and Right to Call, Bhardwaj further said, it took more than 16 years to adopt it in the shape of a last button. In the event of use of NOTA button, the political parties will be forced to nominate the candidates with clean background. But, the Election Commission of India has played a cruel joke with the voters with the introduction of use of NOTA button without any power.
If you want to keep the corrupt leaders out of the race in politics, then re-election with the powers on use of NOTA will not be a costly affair.
Talking about the reservation, Bhardwaj said, the reservation is killing our society which may cause civil war between reservation and non-reservation.
When asked about its solution, he confidently said, caste based reservation should be replaced by free facility to poor students irrespective of any caste, creed and religion.
Stressing about the complete ban on defection (dal badal) by the political leaders, Bhardwaj said, there is need of complete ban on defection and compulsory resignation from MP/MLA seat before changing the party in order to totally curb the ‘horse trading’.
Lastly, Bhardwaj said, R.D.Bhardwaj, his grandfather was an associate of Shaheed Bhagat Singh and even after ten years of independence of India, he was not released from jail put by the then loyalist Prime Minister, Jawahar Lal Nehru. I have revolutionary blood in my veins and I will not die before bring the true revolution in the country which will be a real tribute to the martyrs. In case, we don’t get the motivation from the martyrs, then our freedom will be like a sun-set.

Akalis refer to AAP national leaders as outsiders in Punjab, Will not they be Outsiders there? Mann asked.
In a press statement issued by AAP today, Bhagwant Mann said that the people of Punjab are fed up with the anti-people policies of Badals in last 9 years and they are ready to dethrone the corrupt leaders in upcoming elections in 2017. He said that now the Badals are looking for a safe place to hide after the election defeat but AAP government with the help of the common people of Punjab will put these leaders behind the bar. The people of Punjab are ready to take account of the loot done by the Akali backed Land, Alcohol, Transport and Cable mafia in last 9 years of misrule.
Bhagwant Mann said that just to get the votes, Badals have always played with the feelings of the people of Punjab and tried to create hatred between the different communities. He asked Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his deputy Sukhbir Badal that how they will convince the people of UP that they are not outsider as they refer to the senior AAP leaders.
Mann said that Badals along with their near and dears have looted Punjab and now want to run off to UP but they are now exposed to an extent that in upcoming elections Badals will meet the same fate as in Delhi and Haryana.

Chandigarh, May 3, 2016: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh today asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as why was he being selective in reaching out to the families of the farmers committing suicide.

"For heaven's sake stop celebrating tragedies", he told the Delhi CM, while referring to the Aam Aadmi Party's announcement that it will adopt the children of the farmer who committed suicide in Barnala over his inability to repay the debt.

Capt Amarinder pointed out that there were hundreds and hundreds of farmers who had committed suicide and their families also needed relief and rehabilitation. "While providing relief to the Barnala farmer's family is a nice gesture, will you also spell out as what you plan to do for other families whose earning heads also committed suicide?"he asked Kejriwal.

The PCC president told the AAP and its leader that instead of resorting to theatrics and photo-ops, he should better come out with a plan for providing relief to the farmers. "Agriculture is too serious and sensitive an issue for someone like you to understand", he told Delhi CM, while pointing towards his lack of knowledge and experience about agricultural matters, or for that matter, the matters of governance as a whole.

Capt Amarinder said, the agriculture problem in Punjab is too serious to be solved by photo ops and theatrics. "You need a comprehensive policy and planning", he said, while adding, "we have already mooted a law to prevent dispossession of debt ridden farmers' land or property as a first step". He said, had such a law been in place the Barnala farmer, whose family Mr Kejriwal is planning to visit, would not have been forced to commit suicide.

"From past experience we know you are fond of selling and celebrating tragedies to get a photo op as you did after the attack on Pathankot airbase and you are doing it now", Capt Amarinder told Mr Kejriwal, adding, "this is not the time to sell somebody's tragedy and make political capital out of it, but seriously think and come out with plans and measures that can prevent further suicides and loss of precious lives".

He pointed out, while Mr Kejriwal visited the two martyrs in Punjab, he completely forgot others, including one from his own state. -GP....

Chandigarh, May 3, 2016 (Courtesy: HT) : Days after refusing the post of chief parliamentary secretary (CPS), former Indian hockey captain and SAD’s Jalandhar Cantonment MLA Pargat Singh on Monday surprised everyone when he turned up to attend a meeting to discuss spreading party’s reach on social media.
After making it clear to the party brass about his resentment by not attending the CPS swearing-in ceremony on April 28, Pargat attended the meeting where party’s senior leaders, including MLAs Ajit Singh Kohar, Gurpartap Wadala, Avinash Chandar and Sarwan Singh Phillaur, were present. Pargat though arrived half-anhour late at the meeting.
“Initially, the Akali leaders concluded that Pargat won’t come. But he turned up at 11:30am to surprise everyone,” said an MLA.
Pargat was active in the meeting and gave suggestions on how the party should deal with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) onslaught against the SAD in the virtual world.
The meeting was chaired by party spokesperson and education minister Dr Daljeet Cheema and deputy CM’s adviser and Delhi SAD leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa. Sources said Sirsa had come out with a detailed “counter strategy” to tackle the AAP on social media, especially Facebook and WhatsApp. Pargat, sources said, pointed out in the meeting that there was need to come out with a strategy to counter online campaigns against SAD on “drugs and sand mining”.
The MLA, when contacted by this correspondent, confirmed having attended the meeting and said he got the invite two days back. “But it does not mean that my concerns over the solid waste management plant have ended. My stand is clear and I won’t allow the plant in my constituency,” said the MLA.

Neither summer nor winter can deter me from my mission to serve people
Asks people to keep vigilant eye over development works
Expecting Kejriwal to safeguard Punjab’s interests would be utterly farce
CM concludes his three day Sangat Darshan Program in Lambi

Lambi, May 3, 2016: Terming the river waters as the lifeline of the people of the state, the Chief Minister Punjab Mr. Parkash Singh Badal called upon them to be prepared to face any tough battle in the near future to safeguard their rights over the contentious issue river waters.
Addressing the people on the last leg of his three-day Sangat Darshan program held here in Lambi assembly constituency, Mr. Badal said that the issue of river waters was not merely restricted to farming community rather it was associated with the overall development and prosperity of the state. He said that if the state was robbed off its water, its fertile lands will turn into desert and not only the farming community, the entire economy of the state would be in doldrums.
Describing agriculture as the backbone of state's economy, he said that the farm laborers, commission agents, traders and even industrialists would be adversely affected and thus appealed the people to leave no stone unturned to safeguard the state’s legitimate right over its river waters.
Making people aware of the Congress' role in robbing state off its water, the Chief Minister said that Congress led governments never missed any opportunity to divest the people from their rightful share in their river waters and the incumbent Chief of state Congress Captain Amarinder Singh has played pivotal role in this. Talking about the issue of SYL canal's construction he said that the then Prime Minister of India Mrs. Indira Gandhi had laid foundation stone of project and Captain Amarinder Singh has welcomed this step amid great fanfare and gaiety. At that time too, the Akali Dal strongly raised its voice against this apathetic attitude and discriminatory treatment meted out to Punjab and now same sequence of events were happening once again. Answering a media query Mr. Badal said that as per the Riparian Rules Punjab has exclusive rights over its waters and not even a drop will be spared with anyone. He added that Rajasthan was given Punjab's water in an unjustified and arbitrary manner and the then Central government never took Punjab into confidence while deciding this crucial issue.
Ridiculing the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for its stand on the water issue, the Chief Minister said that the real face of AAP has been fully exposed with the affidavit it filed in court over the issue. He said that in its affidavit the Delhi government has stated Punjab's stand on the issue as unconstitutional and against the interests of nation and even stated that this decision of Punjab may lead to disintegration of country. He said that Mr. Arvind Kejriwal belonged to the state of Haryana and his affinity for the state was natural and thus expecting Kejriwal to safeguard Punjab rights would be utterly farce.
Talking about the importance of holding Sangat Darshan programs Mr. Badal said that it was the best example of democracy. In this democratic set up, people are offered help as per their need. He added that besides saving efforts and time, the main purpose of Sangat Darshan program to ensure people's participation in developmental projects. He added that his primary duty was to solve people's problems at their doorstep. Holding Sangat Darshan in sweltering hot summer, Mr. Badal said though the doctors have advised him to stay away from excessive hot or cold weather, but such weather cannot dissuade him from meeting his goals and he will keep on performing his duty. He said that Sangat Darshan programs are held only in Punjab and that too is limited till the time SAD-BJP government was serving the people of state. He added that in a democratic set up, to ensure people's participation, Sangat Darshan was the most instrumental concept. In Sangat Darshan people's problems are resolved on merit basis and the officers concerned are held responsible for the works. He added that Congress and other parties tried to stop the Sangat Darshan program through courts but the courts too have endorsed this initiative.
Calling upon people to ensure their participation in developmental works, he said that people should themselves keep an eye on the works. He added that besides ensuring timely completion of project the quality of work too is improved and any kind of discrepancy in project implementation can also be checked. While keeping an eye on the project, people also realize their duties.
The Chief Minister announced grants for panchayats of villages Khera, Sheranwala, Fatuhi Khera, Sikh Wala, Punjawa, Reranwali, Lambi and Nambardar Patti while holding Sangat Darshan of these villages.
Prominent among others present included MLA Mr. Harpreet Singh, Punjab Agro Chairman Jathedar Dyal Singh Kolianwali, SAD District Coordinator Mr. Avtar Singh Vanwala, Chairman Mr. Tejinder Singh Middukhera, Puncofed Chairman Mr. Kulwinder Bhai Ka Kera and others. -GP....

Chandigarh, May 3, 2016: The Congress Legislature Party chief Mr Charanjit Singh Channi today squarely held the Punjab Chief Minister Mr Parkash Singh Badal for the misery of the farmers with their plight worsening due to the undue delay in the release of payment in the mandis to them as the government had failed to get remaining amount of cash credit limit from banks, a situation that is unprecedented. He also termed the meeting of S Sukhbir Singh Badal with the Prime Minister Sh Narendra Modi as a media stunt, just to divert the attention of the Farmers and the people of Punjab from the core issue.
He said the state government had so far release payment only for about 40 per cent of the wheat procured by the state agencies. This was a reflection on the scandalous function of the Badal government which was now not being trusted by the centre despite the fact that the Akali Dal was the alliance partner of the BJP and part of the government at the centre.
He expressed serious concern over suicides by the farmers and farm workers and the unfortunate trend had become unstoppable. He said their harassment in the mandis was adding to this otherwise hopeless situation. These suicides reflected the magnitude of the crisis that was confronting the farm sector and the state government had failed to take even a single step to improve the situation. He pointed out that farm incomes grew the fastest from 2004-5 to 2011-12 when it was the UPA in power at the centre that used to take good care of farm sector by appropriate hike in the minimum support prices.
Mr Channi also strongly condemned the Badal government for the utter neglect of the health sector with rural health scheme having totally collapsed in the absence of adequate staff as at some places, the only staff happened to be class IV employees. On the other hand, the state government had been encouraging private sector players thereby making treatment out of the reach of the common man.
He made it clear that the Congress after coming to power in 2017 elections would give top priority to health and education sectors while coming out with a long term policy for the farm sector. -GP

Chandigarh, May 3, 2016: Former Punjab Chief Minister and PPCC President, Capt. Amarinder Singh, has said that there is a palpable mood for a regime change in Punjab among the Punjabi NRIs and he was overwhelmed with the support that he and the Congress party had received here.
Capt. Amarinder, who was in Los Angles on Monday, told a group of Punjabi newsmen from Canada and US, that during his various interactions with the diaspora in US, everyone had criticised the working of the Akali-BJP combine and batted for a progressive and visionary Congress government in the state. “Drug addiction, rampant corruption, unemployment, poor state of education and health and over all lawlessness in Punjab are on the top of the minds of the Punjabis settled here”, he said.
“I have met a lot people here and not one had anything positive to say about the present situation in Punjab”, he said adding that the diaspora was very optimistic about a turnaround with a Congress government at the helm.
Replying to a question on prospects of AAP, Capt. Amarinder said the party on its own has no chance but it could fragment the anti Akali-BJP vote. “They can just harm us like the PPP did in the last assembly elections when it cornered 5.17% votes”, he said adding that while the Congress, which lost the elections by just a 0.08% votes, had increased its vote share in the 2012, the Akali-BJP’s share had gone down.
He said in fact the Akali-BJP combine are now banking on AAP’s prospects of eating into the Congress vote share for their own victory. He cautioned NRIs against lending any support to AAP, as it could well pave a way for another Akali-BJP victory. “What Punjab needs today is a government that is committed to work for the people and the near 10 decade rule of Akali-BJP has proved that they aren’t the right choice”, he said dubbing the combine’s last poll run as a “victory by default”.
Responding to a question on the cancellation of his trip to Canada due to a case filed against him by Justice For Sikhs, Capt. Amarinder said, “its unfortunate that baseless charges are being raised against me ". He said his five years regime in Punjab was the “most peaceful” and these people (SFJ) were playing into hands of anti national forces by raising such issues.
Maintaining that this would be his last run for elections, Capt. Amarinder said, “I’ve been a soldier and before I hang my boots, I desire to put a last ditch effort to pull back Punjab, its youths and farmers from the throes of drug addiction, unemployment, debt and suicides”. He said the decade long Akali-BJP rule had dragged down Punjab from being the No 1 state to No 19. “I wish to see Punjab back in its glory”, he said. -GP....

New Delhi, May 3, 2016: For a country with the world’s third largest army – the Indian Armed Forces have always been looked up to for their courage, valour and unconditional love for their motherland. Capturing the very essence of sacrifice by the Armed Forces personnel and saluting these real heroes of India, well-known author and philanthropist Manju Lodha comes up with yet another gem – PARAMVIR
Launching at the cultural hub of the Indian Diaspora in the UK – The Nehru Centre, Mrs Manju Lodha unveiled her new book Paramvir to an enthusiastic audience. Mrs Lodha presented signed copies of the book to the honorary chief guests including the High Commissioner of India to the UK, HE Mr Navtej Sarna, Mr Virendra Sharma MP, Mr Lalubhai Parekh – Overseas Friends of BJP and Warrant Officer Ashok Chauhan, MBE – British Army.
A book celebrating the lives of 21 Param Vir Chakra winners written by a well-known Indian social activist was launched here by Indian High Commissioner to the UK, Navtej Sarna.
Param Vir: A War Diary by Manju Lodha captures 21 instances of bravery recounted by the friends and families of Param Vir Chakra awardees, the highest military honour bestowed by India to those serving in the Indian armed forces.
"Soldiers are the real heroes. If not for them, we would not be leading a peaceful life. I have the highest gratitude for them," said Lodha at a special launch event at Nehru Centre here.
"Writing about all these unsung heroes, even if I have not been able to meet with many of them, has been a most fulfilling experience. It is almost as if I have lived and experienced their lives, and everyone reading this book would know about their valour and bravery. I salute them," she added.
The evening also showcased her poetry skills as she recited some of her famous works. She enthralled the audience with a beautiful poetry, which has been acclaimed in India.
In PARAMVIR Mrs Lodha beautifully captures the heroic deeds of the brave Indian soldiers who at the time of war, went beyond the call of duty and showed exemplary display of courage and determination. Through her simple yet powerful storytelling Mrs Lodha brings to life 21 riveting stories of some of India’s bravest soldiers.
Drawing out minute details from records, family members and comrades-in-arms she has created the most vivid character-portraits of the men in uniform in a crisp and engaging manner. For literature and history enthusiasts, her book Paramvir – not only talks about the Paramvir Chakra but the journeys of those who have been awarded the Ashok Chakra, Vir Chakra and Mahavir Chakra as well – right from 1947 to the Kargil War. Pertinent to that the Ashok Chakra is also awarded to civilians for their bravery.
Each story has a personal touch as she has spent a lot of time with the families and colleagues of the soldiers to understand their journeys and what made them the extraordinary men that they were.
Coming from a military family background herself Mrs Lodha said: “PARAMVIR is very close to my Heart. My new book, takes you into the hearts and minds of those who die so that we may live. The book is particularly a must read for the new generation of the Indian Diaspora in the UK who don’t know much about the struggles of the Indian Army. The aim of the book is to bring to life their stories, so we remember them and their sacrifice doesn’t seem like it’s gone in vain.”
Her riveting storytelling brought out the true essence of what the Paramvir Chakra – the highest military award for extraordinary courage stands for.
The book has been released in English and promises to be a captivating tale of valour and prestige tugging at your patriotic nerve.
For over a decade, Mrs Manju Lodha has been actively involved in literary pursuits, social causes and women’s empowerment. Thanks to her endearing style of working sincerely towards social causes yet maintaining a low profile, she has become a credible spokesperson for the multiple causes that she supports.
Mrs Lodha is an Excellent Orator and Founder of Gyan Gangotri Kavya Manch, which is the only women’s literary organisation for development of literary skill for housewives in Mumbai. She is running three libraries, including the world’s biggest religious library with over 600,000 religious books and one mobile library.

Nevada (USA), May 3, 2016: Hindu prisoners in England and Wales will be excused from work on Maha Shivaratri, Raksha Bandhan, Krishna Janmashtami, Ganesha Pooja, Vijayadashami and Diwali; according to new guidelines which are effective June one.

National Offender Management Service (NOMS), an executive agency sponsored by the Ministry of Justice of United Kingdom Government, issued a 104-pages Prison Service Instruction (PSI) on April 12 titled “Faith and Pastoral Care for Prisoners” to meet the faith and religious needs of prisoners.

This PSI allows possession/access of following religious artefacts to Hindu prisoners: mala (comprising 108 small beads), statue/image/photograph of god, incense sticks and holder, small bell and Gita. It says that “incense must be available through the Prison Facilities List” for prisoners registered as Hindu.

It also states: “In the Hindu tradition, Prasad is an important part of communal worship. In the prison context, it has been agreed that the Prasad should be provided in house and can consist of fruit, dried fruit or nuts”.

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, commending the NOMS efforts to meet the religious needs of Hindu prisoners, urged NOMS to include at least five more Hindu festivals—Holi, Ram Navmi, Hanuman Jayanti, Makar Sankranti, Yugadi—on the list when Hindu prisoners should be excused from work, in addition to six already granted.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, also pointed out the need of provision of more scriptures (besides Gita) to Hindu prisoners; including Ramayana, Vedas, Upanishads, Mahabharata, Puranas, etc.

Rajan Zed further urged the need of provision of more religious artefacts to Hindu prisoners (in addition to the ones already allowed); like Om symbol, container with kumkum powder, water container and spoon, and puja tray to hold all artefacts.

NOMS is responsible for the running of prison and probation services within England and Wales. Michael Spurr is the NOMS Chief Executive. -GP....

New Delhi, May 2, 2016: The number of people downloading Aadhaar on the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) website is on the rise with the number of average downloads per day of Aadhaar at 6 lakh. As on date, Aadhaar downloads have crossed 40 crore. The reasons for popularity of download of Aadhaar through website can be attributed to increased usage of Aadhaar as Proof of Identity and also as Proof of Address by service providers and the ease with which the residents can download Aadhaar from UIDAI website.
The total numbers of Aadhaar generated as on May 2, 2016 stand at 100.93 crore.
The data in the electronic version of Aadhaar is the same as printed on the Aadhaar letter. Hence, the Aadhaar downloaded from UIDAI’s website has the same validity as Aadhaar card received by a resident through post and therefore, the downloaded Aadhaar is treated at par with a printed Aadhaar card received through post. The downloaded version of Aadhaar has also been notified as a valid proof of identity and address by the Reserve Bank of India, vide its notification DBOD.AML.BC. No. 100 /14.01.001/2013-14.
“Anyone who has misplaced his/her Aadhaar or is yet to receive Aadhaar card through post, can easily download an Aadhaar after providing certain details online. In case, a person does not remember the details, the Aadhaar can be downloaded and printed from the nearest authorized Aadhaar Kendra for a nominal fee of Rs.10,” said Dr. Ajay Bhushan Pandey, Director General & Mission Director, UIDAI.
Central and State Governments have linked various social sector schemes/ projects to Aadhaar and have notified Aadhaar as a valid Proof of Identity and Address. As Aadhaar is being increasingly used as a proof of identity for availing various services, wider use of downloaded version of Aadhaar is expected.
To download an Aadhaar online, the person should have registered his/her mobile number at the time of enrolment as the system will prompt the person to input a One Time Pin to validate himself/herself, while trying to download the Aadhaar. The electronic version can be downloaded either fromhttps://resident.uidai.net.in/home or by clicking on the ‘Aadhaar Services’ link on http://www.uidai.gov.in. -GP....

Chandigarh, May 2, 2016: To ensure that the populace of Bathinda region enjoys uninterrupted access to clean drinking water being provided by WaterPoints (WP), Vodafone M-Pesa has joined hands with WaterPoints Services Pvt Ltd, which runs and operates WPs. WaterPoints Services Pvt Ltd, formerly known as HealthPoint Servics India Pvt Ltd, delivers improved health to low income–rural & small town communities in Punjab via clean drinking water facilities.
WaterPoint works to reduce morbidity due to water borne diseases by making high quality low cost drinking water available through a network of sustainable community–based water treatment units set up in the villages and small towns. In Bathinda region, which suffers from lack of supply of adequate amount of clean drinking water, it is providing safe drinking water to about 6,00,000 users daily.

Before partnering with Vodafone M-Pesa, WP units/plants faced a challenge of cash being deposited on a daily basis and collating of reports for the same. As per the operational procedure, plant operator had to travel to nearest bank or handover cash collected to the designated people twice a week. With the introduction of Vodafone M-Pesa, this problem -has been resolved as cash is being deposited on a daily basis now and comprehensive reports being generated and monitored online.

Vodafone M-Pesa provided an ecosystem to WP where all plant operators get their daily collections converted to E-money with the aid of M-Pesa agents (CashIn points) positioned near their plants by Vodafone. They then transferred this money through M-Pesa to the supervisors in Bathinda city, thereby cancelling the need to travel and deposit money. This has helped in ensuring that the plants remain operational and public gets access to clean drinking water 7-days-a-week.

Sharing his thoughts, Pushpinder S Gujral, Business Head, Punjab, HP and J&K said, “Vodafone M-Pesais delighted to be the harbinger of a facility that will significantly help in providing access to clean drinking water all through the week. With this tie-up and moving to M-Pesa’s safe and secure money transfer platform, the need for physical transferring the money has been eliminated. No more travelling to deposit the money to supervisors and wasting time on commute. This has ensured that the WP plants remain operational throughout the week and people from the region have uninterrupted access to clean drinking water.”

Serving the needs of the unbanked and under-banked sections, Vodafone M-Pesa is a unique and innovative Digital Wallet service from Vodafone that offers Money Transfer, Bill & Utility Pay, Merchant payments and Business Solutions (Enterprise Cash Management) with the largest network of 120,000 Agents (CashIn Points) spread across various towns and villages of India, enabling instant transfer and receipt of money anytime, from anywhere.

The tie-up between WP and Vodafone M-Pesa in Punjab was initiated at WP’s 8 operation centres as pilot at Rampura, BATHINDA. Following the success of the tie-up, WP has agreed to extend this tie-up to other 25 points and do a pilot in Kollar district of Karnataka.

Sharing WP’s view on the tie-up with Vodafone M-Pesa, Onkatnath Sahai, Senior Project Manager, WaterPoint Services Pvt Ltd states, “Vodafone M-Pesa has been a game changer through its innovative digital wallet service wherein cash is being deposited on a daily basis now. The comprehensive reports that are generated online enable better supervision of cash flow and effective sales monitoring on a daily basis”

Speaking about the ease that Vodafone M-Pesa has brought, Binder Singh, Field Coordinator, WaterPoint Services Pvt Ltd said, “Vodafone M-Pesa has relieved me from travelling for cash collection and deposit. I am utilising my time in other operational things, thereby, increasing the productivity. It provides me an sms update on deposits done at each WaterPoint”

Water Points are units owned and operated by Water Point Services (WP) that provide families in rural villages with clean drinking water that brings modern and appropriate technologies treating chemical and microbiological contamination. Water Point concept builds upon and combines proven models to achieve unique synergies and efficiencies that have the potential to improve wellness, productivity, and quality of life. -GP....

Mohali, May 2, 2016: Former Union Minister and Patiala MLA Ms Preneet Kaur today supported the demand of the striking petroleum dealers for parity in VAT on petroleum, at par with other neighbouring states.
On her appeal the petroleum dealers, who were sitting on hunger strike, broke their fast also. President of the Petroleum Dealers Association Paramjit Singh Doaba and two other office bearers of the association were on hunger strike for last few days.
Ms Kaur told the striking petroleum dealers that Congress was in support of their demands which were genuine and justified. She promised that once Congress forms the government in Punjab, it will bring the VAT on petrol at par with other states so that the petrol pumps bordering other states like Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and the Chandigarh do not suffer any losses.
The former Union Minister while urging the petroleum dealers to break their fast, told them that their lives were precious. She cautioned them that the Akali-BJP government in the state was totally insensitive and did not bother about the lives of people.
“While we in the Congress support your struggle, at the same time please ensure that you do not risk your lives by going for fast unto death as this government is too insensitive to care about people’s lives”, she told them.
Ms Kaur was accompanied by Mohali MLA Balbir Singh Sidhu, Deepinder Dhillon, SMS Sandhu and others. -GP

Farmer leaders questioned VC Cheema that how much money will he take to commit suicide?


Chandigarh, May 2, 2016: Bharti Kisan Union reacted sharply to the statement of Ravinder Cheema vice Chairman Mandi Board and President of Commission Agents association that farmers are committing suicides to take compensation. BKU described his statement as cheap, insensitive, shameless and unpardonable.

In a press note issued by Bhupinder Singh Mann National President BKU, Ex MP, Baldev Singh Mianpur, President Punjab BKU, Gurbachan Singh Bajwa and Balwant Singh Behramke both Gen. Secretary Punjab and Sukhwinder Singh Kahlon President District Gurdaspur, said that this basically reflects the mentality of Badal Government towards the farmers. They said that it is not possible that Cheema would issue such statement without approval of his bosses who have made him Vice Chairman of the Mandi Board. S Mann said that there is a deep rooted conspiracy behind these events. Had this not been the case, Badal should have thrown him out immediately.

The farmers leaders said that this statement has not only hurt the farmers but has deeply hurt all Punjabis. This statement is most condemnable and cannot be tolerated. They said that this cheap statement has come at a time when 2-3 farmers are committing suicides everyday. The farmer leaders further said that this statement is not pardonable and the farmers do not demand any apology for such grossly wrong act.

The farmer leaders questioned Vice Chairman Cheema that how much money will he take to commit suicide?

S. Mianpur said that the statement which has been got issued from Cheema shows that arrogance of power and money has gone into the heads of Akali rulers. This government has looted Punjab in last ten years and now when people have started opposing them, they have lost their mental balance. This is being clearly reflected through the statement given by the sycophants like Cheema.
The leaders of BKU gave a call to all Kisan Organizations to unite and fight the injustice. Otherwise the day is not far when all farmers who raise their voices against injustice will be booked by Police in some false cases. Unless the organizations unite, the divisive and corrupt forces will keep looting the farmers.

The farmer leaders said that we do not know about the Kisan organizations who are puppets in the hands of Badals, but our organization will stand by any farmer organization or leader who is implicated in false case.

The need of the our is that legal action should be taken against the puppet of Badal Government Ravinder Cheema, who has started fire in the hearts of Punjabis by issuing this crude and offensive statement.

This is a deep conspiracy to protect the people who are forcing the poor farmers to take extreme step of suicides. BKU said that the suicides are basically political murders and not suicides. -GP....

Jagraon(Ludhiana), May 2, 2016: With the arrest of three persons, the Ludhiana (Rural) police today cracked the kidnapping case, in which a resident of village Dhaipai named Ranjit Singh was kidnapped by some unknown persons on the evening of April 28, 2016. An FIR number 27 dated April 28, 2016, under sections 365, 364A, 506 of IPC was registered at Police Station Jodhan. It was with the efforts and hard work of Ludhiana (Rural) Police that the kidnappers were arrested within 48 hours of committing this crime.
In a press conference addressed today, Mr Lok Nath Angra, IPS, IGP Zone-2, Jalandhar, and Mr S K Kalia, IPS, DIG Ludhiana Range, Ludhiana, stated that Ranjit Singh was let off by the kidnappers on late night of April 29, 2016. During investigation, the police came to know that Ranjit Singh’s family had paid ransom money of Rs 30 lakh for his release. The police started investigating the matter further and they got secret information about the kidnappers from their sources. Mr Upinderjit Singh Ghuman, PPS, SSP Ludhiana (Rural) formed different teams on lookout of the kidnappers and several raids were also conducted.
One of the accused, Gurjant Singh son of Gurmeet Singh, a resident of village Pandori under Police Station Mahal Kalan was arrested from Khamano on May 1, 2016. The other two accused persons, Mandeep Singh son of Gurmel Singh, a resident of village Pandori under Police Station Mahal Kalan and Dr Mandeep Singh son of Dilbagh Singh, a resident of village Chhapa under Police Station Thulliwal district Barnala were arrested today, i.e. May 2, 2016.
During the course of investigation, Mandeep Singh confessed in front of the police that he, along with his accomplices had kidnapped Ranjit Singh, who is brother of NRI Hardeep Singh, for ransom. Mandeep Singh is cousin brother (real maasi’s son) of Ranjit Singh, and he had planned the kidnapping of Ranjit Singh in connivance with his friends.
Mandeep knew very well that NRI Hardeep Singh would pay any amount for the sake of getting his brother Ranjit Singh free from the clutches of kidnappers. That is why they initially demanded a ransom of Rs 1.50 crore from NRI Hardeep Singh, and later released Ranjit Singh by receiving a ransom amount of Rs 30 lakh. This ransom amount was paid by Ranjit’s brother Hardeep Singh.
During investigation, main accused Mandeep Singh confessed that he used to till 17 acres of land owned by Hardeep Singh on contract basis. This land was sold by Hardeep Singh in February 2016 and Mandeep knew very well that Hardeep can easily pay this much ransom amount. Mandeep also confessed that he had to pay back loan of Rs 40 lakh of bank, arhtiya and other persons and that is why, he hatched this conspiracy of kidnapping Ranjit Singh. This was the first crime which the trio committed.
After their arrest, the police have recovered Rs 10 lakh, Mahindra Scorpio vehicle (CH-55-E-0833) from Mandeep Singh, Rs 9.45 lakh and a motorcycle from Gurjant Singh and Rs 9.45 lakh Dr Mandeep Singh.
For boosting the morale of police officers who worked really hard in cracking of this case, the Director General of Police Punjab have awarded Class-1 certificates to Inspector Waryam Singh, SHO Police Station Sudhar, Inspector Kulwant Singh, SHO Police Station Dakha, Inspector Lovedeep Singh, Incharge CIA Staff, SI Sukhwinder Singh, SHO Jodhan, SI Bikramjit Singh, SHO Sadar Police Station Raikot and SI Ramaninderjit Singh, Incharge Special Cell with Certificate First Class .

Chandigarh, May 2, 2016: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today said the façade of austerity, probity and morality in public life which was professed by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had been torn asunder by the greed and hunger for money shown by AAP national executive member Yamini Gomar while contesting the last parliamentary elections.
In a statement here, SAD general secretary Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said instead of delivering sermons to others, AAP and its Convenor Arvind Kejriwal should spell out what action was being taken against Yamini Gomar for submitting fake bills for expenditure incurred by her during the parliamentary polls.
Dr Cheema said it had now been proved that Ms Gomar submitted false bills for expenditure incurred in printing of election material while contesting the election from Hoshiarpur constituency in 2014. While asking AAP to take strict action from Ms Gomar, the SAD leader said an independent investigation should be launched by the enforcement agencies into the funds collected by the AAP leader during this period. “It appears money has been collected from gullible Punjabis and the same has not been accounted for by Ms Gomar”, he added.
The akali leader said AAP could not even contest the uncovering of the scam against Yamini Gomar because the same had been brought to the notice of the party by an AAP worker. “We demand that the conscientious activist who brought this scam into public should be given security due to all whistle blowers so that all dimensions of this scam could be brought to the notice of Punjabis. “It is also now important to examine the expenditure accounts of other AAP candidates to find out if there is a similar pattern and whether all of them also submitted fake bills”, he added.
Stating that scams were becoming the order of the day in AAP, Dr Cheema said Delhi CM and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal had to sack food minister Asim Ahmed Khan on corruption charges. Law minister Jitender Tomar was arrested for faking his college degree and another law minister Somnath Bhartiwas sent to jail in a domestic violence case. Besides this he said AAP MLA Som Dutt was facing probe for submitting a false affidavit and MLA Manoj Kumar was arrested in a case of cheating and land grabbing. -GP....

Chandigarh, May 2, 2016: Cautioning Punjabi NRIs from lending support to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the 2017 assembly polls, former Chief Minister and President of Punjab Pradesh Congress, Capt. Amarinder Singh, said any new “experimentation” at this crucial juncture could prove disastrous for the state.

“Punjab has been ruined during the 10 years of misrule of the Akali-BJP combine and another 5 years of any misadventure would bring the state to its knees, making recovery impossible”, said Capt Amarinder while addressing a well-attended public reception organised by the Punjabi NRIs, Southern California, in Los Angeles, California, on Sunday.

Castigating AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal for his extravagant advertising media campaigns in Punjab, Capt Amarinder said, “He has committed a loot of Rs 526 crores of hard earned money of Delhi taxpayers in pursuit of his political ambitions”, he said adding that Kejriwal was now dreaming of becoming the Chief Minister of Punjab.

Saying that Punjab’s interests can never be safe in AAP’s hands, the PCC president said, “We have water and territorial conflicts with Haryana, the state from where Kejriwal hails, so it would be naïve to expect him or his party to fight for the legitimate rights of Punjabis”. He said the inefficient functioning of the Delhi government, evident from the prevailing dissatisfaction among the residents of Delhi, had exposed Kejriwal’s lies and it was only a matter of a short time that the party’s misplaced hype in Punjab would fade.

Dubbing the Akali-BJP rule in Punjab as the biggest misfortune for the state, Capt Amarinder said he had never imagined in his wildest dreams that a state that fed the entire country would come to the brink when its once prosperous farmers would commit suicides. Reiterating his commitment to enact laws to put an end to the provision of auction of lands of debt ridden farmers, he promised that if voted to power his government would find a solution to free farmers from their debts.

Responding to questions from NRIs, Capt Amarinder said drug addiction had ruined an entire generation in Punjab and the Akali-BJP combine was squarely responsible for it. “We know that the Badal clan has its hands in this dirty business and I promise that I would not spare them”, he said amidst cheers from the crowd.

Reminding people that his government had sent both Prakash Singh Badal and his son, Sukhbir, to prison during his earlier tenure, the former Chief Minister said they would meet a similar fate for all their misdeeds if Congress comes to power.

Assuring the gathering that education, health and revival of agriculture would be the main priorities of his government, besides making the state drug free, Capt Amarinder said he had already formed a committee of experts to study, analyse and find solutions to these problems. “We would come out with workable solutions to get Punjab back on the rails of development and prosperity”, he said.

Responding to a question from a LA based doctor; Capt Amarinder said he was very much in favour of introduction of reservation on economic basis for upper castes within the general category and without disturbing the existing arrangement for those already getting it. “We would surely do this”, he assured the gathering, amidst a thundering response.
