Zira (Ferozepur) : When the Punjab Assembly has brought a new law of life term for sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib, a fresh incident of 10 Shri Guru Granth Sahib - sacred books - including dozens of other holy books – Gutka, Pothi, Japuji Sahib – have been reported to have caught fire at Sach Khand in the gurudawara, at village Behal Fattu (Ghurk) 6 KMs from Makhu and transformed into ashes in the incident.
According to the first hand information, the very unfortunate incident is reported to be due to short circuit.
Added here, The Punjab assembly has passed the Indian Penal Code (Punjab Amendment) Bill, 2016 that seeks life imprisonment for sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib — by adding section 295 AA in IPC — and enhancement of punishment under section 295 of IPC — injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class — from two to 10 years. Whereas, the leader of Opposition Charanjit Singh Channi sought the same proposed punishment for disrespect to other religions too.
In the past, the Punjab has been rocked by a series of protests over a number of desecration incidents taking place in the state starting with Bargari at Faridkot.
Immediately on getting the information, Er,DPS Kharbanda, Deputy Commissioner, Ferozepur, Manminder Singh, SSP alongwith Hardev Singh, DSP Zira, Devinder Parkash, SHO Zira reached the spot to take stock of the situation.
Hari Singh Zira, MLA Zira also reached at the gurudwara. Sharing his sentiments with the people of the area, he ordered the district administration to investigate into the matter for proceeding further strictly under the law.
The residents of village – Sarpanch Sewa Singh, Panchayat Member Harbhajan Sigh, Dyal Singh, Dr.Hari Singh, Bohar Singh, Parkash Singh informed that for the last month, the Granthi of Gurudawara Sahib was not coming and in his place, Bhai Bagicha Singh was given the duty by the committee. However, the non-working of CCTV cameras installed for the last one week has created a suspicion.
They informed that today morning, Bhai Mohan saw that smoke is coming out of the Gurudawara and on opening the door, it was found that there was a fire in the Sach Khand Sahib. On calling the people, the fire was brought under control but in the mean time, 10 number of Sri Guru Granth Sahib have been gutted in the incident along with other holy books.
However, during the preliminary investigation, it seems that the incident took place due to electrical short circuit and denied any foul play, said SHO.
Later the police had lodged a case under sections 295, 295-A was registered against unidentified persons (Case number 53 Dated 29.04.2016) and made all arrangements of security to meet any untoward situation on account of the incident.

Chandigarh, April 29, 2016:
Senior Congress leader and former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda finally lost his Cabinet Minister status and other facilities, with the Khattar government taking a decision in this context on Friday. The decision was taken by the Haryana cabinet in a meeting chaired by CM Manohar Lal Khattar.
The BJP government in Haryana had already decided to strip Hooda of his Cabinet Minister status but was waiting for an appropriate time, sources disclosed adding that his “alleged role” in the Jat reservation stir, provided the government an opportunity.
The erstwhile Congress government lead by Bhupinder Singh Hooda, on May 2, 2013 had decided to provide a cabinet rank to the former Chief Ministers in Haryana, and the decision was widely criticized at that time too.
The decision was reverted by the Khattar government on Friday. This is not the first decision of Congress government that has been scrapped by the BJP after forming government in Haryana.
After government’s decision, now Hooda has to vacate the government bungalow allotted to him Sector 7, Chandigarh, leave an official car and a staff of six. His security will now be downgraded to “Y” category and he will lose one of the two escort vehicles.

Chandigarh April 29, 2016: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today supported the present rule of displaying pictorial warning on 85% space of Tobacco product packets. Aam Aadmi Party MPs Bhagwant Mann and Prof. Sadhu Singh criticized the parliamentarians who are working under the pressure of tobacco lobby and supporting the demand to reduce the size to 50% of the packets.
The leaders said that those who are supporting the demand to reduce the size are actually not concerned about the families of 21 lakh people who are dying every year by consuming tobacco in any form. These people are more concerned about the tobacco companies than the common people of the country.
Bhagwant Mann said that the size of pictorial warning in Nepal is 90% while as per the international standard it is suggested to display warning picture on the 85% part of packet. In India, earlier the size was 40% of packet but after the report of parliamentary committee it was increased to 50%. After the pressure from the NGOs, medical organizations and general public the size was increased to 85% and implemented from April1, 2016.
Prof Sadhu Singh said that the tobacco lobby couldn’t digest the move and started forcing the government through some MPs. These MPs have actually backstabbed the Crores of people by siding with the tobacco lobby. “As per the reports, the government has to spend Rs. 104000 Crore on the diseases resulted by using tobacco products. AAP will not tolerate any plan of the government that can harm the citizens of the country.” He added.
Mann said, “Everyday about 5500 people are adding in the list of tobacco users. So now it is more important to inform the people about ill effects of using tobacco in any form. In a country like India where people in rural areas are illiterate, pictorials warning can be a great way to aware people. The tobacco companies should respect the ruling of Rajasthan High Court and display the pictorial warning on 85% part of packets.” -GP

Chandigarh, April 29, 2016: The growth of the major crops of rice and wheat has experienced a decline in the last decade and this can be attributed to Punjab reaching its highest attainable productivity under the current High yielding Variety (HYV) technology. Other issues contributing to the agrarian crisis such as growth of farm debt and suicides, ground water depletion, water logging and salinisation in South West Punjab, wheat-rice monoculture of cropping, agrarian polices on land lease and MSP degradation were pondered upon and effective policy measures to tackle the situation were suggested. These were the main observations made in two-day workshop organised by Institute for Development and Communication (IDC), ICSSR North-Western Regional Centre, Panjab University and UGC Human Resource Development Centre, Panjab University.

Sh. Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Minister of Haryana, speaking on the occasion encouraged academicians to come up with effective solutions for the growth of both the states. He felt that Haryana has moved towards the direction of industrial growth because they enjoy the benefit of a steady market due to Haryana’s proximity to New Delhi. He also discussed the need to put farmer under the purview of social security like the pension scheme and reiterated that the farmer is eventually the backbone of the economy and cannot be isolated in pursuit of industrial growth. In his address he also mentioned that his government has taken initiatives of setting up an international Horticulture market, mega food Park, centres of excellence for agricultural research, cold chains for dairy farmers, and Increased FDI in food processing and textile industry for the growth of the state. He exhorted the academicians and experts to come up with viable solutions especially for unemployment in the state.

Prof. Y.K. Alagh, Chairman of IDC and Former Central Minister of Planning and Power concluded that that we cannot have anti-grain policies, but it is equally important for us to diversify to produce Jowar, maize and pulses which can be achieved through incentivisation.

Dr. Pramod Kumar, Director, Institute for Development and Communication (IDC) stress that there is a need to give subsidies to the agriculture. It would be worthwhile to examine sectoral needs for subsidies to promote equity and productivity.

Mr. Devender Sharma spoke about and gave us an impassioned presentation firstly commenting on the described the agrarian situation Punjab as precarious and Punjab being the hotspot for suicide in Punjab. Prof. Lakhwinder Singh and Mr. Devender Sharma said that the current agrarian crisis emanating from the path of development and extrapolated global policy regime. Mr. Sharma further argued that since 1970s MSP has increased only 19 times, whereas the increase in incomes of other sectors has been almost 150 times. Globally, farmers are given subsidies and income support.

Prof. Sukhpal Singh, Chairperson, Centre of Management in Agriculture , IIM-Ahmedabad said that the current agricultural initiatives are ad hoc and are not inclusive to make the small landholding farmers viable and efficient. Prof. Shergill, on the other hand, commented that that the rice-wheat crop pattern is the most sound model. Punjab’s agriculture sector is as developed and mechanised as the countries like US, Canada and some European countries. He reiterated that empirical evidence points that modern agriculture is not diversified culture nowhere in the world

Prof. B.S. Dhillon, Vice Chancellor, Punjab Agriculture University, Ludhiana; Prof. B.S. Ghuman, Department of Public Administration, Panjab University and Chief finance and Economic Advisor, Punjab; and Prof. S.S. Sangwan, Head, SBI Chair, Centre of Research in Rural and Industrial Development (CRRID) also spoken on the occasion.

Chandigarh, April 29, 2016: The Army action on the Golden Temple was an outcome of the nation building project switched into operation since the British rulers quit the Indian sub-continent, said known Sikh historian Ajmer Singh.
Speaking at the release of the book, ‘Sant Bhinderanwale de Ru-h-bru, June 84 di Pattarkari’, authored in Punjabi by senior journalist Jaspal Singh Sidhu here at Kisan Bhawan, Ajmer Singh said practice showed that shaping a nation-state on the European model, necessitated the demolishing of distinct identities, cultures, languages and other diversities to be replaced by a homogenous dispensation, which better suited to unitary type- central governance.
The Sikhs came into a direct conflict with the Indian state as they insisted on retaining their distinct identity as well their separate political entity as a ‘nation’, he added.
Supporting his views veteran journalist Dalbir Singh said media like other institutions of the state stood behind the nation-building process and distorted the reporting of news-items to fit into the anti-Sikh propaganda spree. Thus, the Sikhs subjected to police atrocities and repression made out as ‘aggressors’ in the eyes of the Indians and justified the leashing of reign of terror on the community.
Other senior journalists Sidhu Damdami and Karamjit Singh said the book furnishes the first-hand information of the 1980s, which would help understanding the past and shaping the future politics of the Sikhs.
Several other journalists including Hamir Singh, Chanchal Manohar Singh, Sarbjit Singh Dhaliwal, Dr Megha Singh, Balwinder Jammu Pritam Rupal , Prabhjit Singh and Davinder Pal were present on the occasion.
Apart from journalistic fraternity, Bharati Kisan Union leader Pishora Singh ‘Sidhupur’, former SGPC member Amrinder Singh, Sikh leader S.S Kishanpura, Khushaal Singh and former vice-chancellor of Guru Granth Sahib World University attended the function. -GP....

Chandigarh, April 29, 2016:
Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh took a dig at the ‘Sikhs for Justice’ over its complaint against the Aam Aadmi Party’s political programmes in Canada, months after the party leaders had already addressed meetings there.
“It is like locking the stable door after horse has bolted”, he remarked, as AAP leaders had already held political rallies in Canada and nobody, including SFJ, had complained against them that time.
“This is just an afterthought by the anti-India group SFJ as I had questioned its silence against AAP holding similar functions in the past”, Capt Amarinder pointed out in a statement issued here today.
The PCC president said, the SFJ was playing into the hands of those who were opposed to his programmes in the US and Canada, like the AAP, and after being exposed, had now filed a token complaint against the party’s programmes there.
“What is the point in filing a complaint when the AAP leaders have already held several public meetings last year and this year?” he asked, while remarking, “the SFJ was now trying to take a high moral ground and project itself to be a neutral organisation”.
Capt Amarinder said, the SFJ complaint needed to be viewed in the context of the vicious and malicious propaganda launched by the vested interests and anti-Punjab and anti-India forces on the social media against his US and Canada visit.
“But I am really thankful to these people as they have exposed themselves and the Punjabis across the globe have understood their machinations in trying to prevent me from meeting my fellow Punjabis in North America”, he said, while adding, “but let me guarantee you that I will definitely return to Canada sooner than later after sorting out the baseless complaint they have filed against my visit”.

In this direction, the States would have to provide direct access to primary producers, he added.

While the Policy has started yielding positive results, a lot more work is yet to be done. He said that skilled workers played an important role in development of industries.

New Delhi, April 29,2016: Mohammed Sadiq will continue as MLA of Punjab Assembly. The verdict was pronounced by the Supreme Court today . The Apex court upheld election of Mohammed Sadique from Bhadaur constituency of Punjab reserved for Scheduled Castes . The Court set aside the High Court judgment which had disqulified Sadiq.
Accepting th eappeal of Sadiq, the Supreme Court Bench comprising of Justices Ranjan Gogoi and Prafulla C. Pant has reiterated that a person can change his religion and faith but not the caste, to which he belongs, as caste has linkage to birth.
In this case, Mr.Sadique claimed to be a member of Doom community which is one of the Scheduled Caste in Punjab. He was also issued a caste certificate as he was found to be member of ‘Doom’ community by the competent authority, after he declared that he has embraced Sikhism, and he was accepted by the Sikh community.
It is on the basis of this Caste certificate; the returning officer had approved his candidature also. He won the election and it was challenged before the High Court of Punjab and Haryana. The High Court had held that the conversion from one religion to another would disentitle the person to carry his caste with him after conversion.
However, he has proved that his family members though followed Islam but they belonged to “Doom” community. It is settled law that a person can change his religion and faith but not the caste, to which he belongs, as caste has linkage to birth. It is proved on the record that the appellant was issued a caste certificate as he was found to be member of ‘Doom’ community by the competent authority, after he declared that he has embraced Sikhism, and he was accepted by the Sikh community.

Chandigarh, April 29, 2016: Ridiculing Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s claims about his Aam Aadmi Party winning 107 out of 117 seats in the 2017 elections, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh today said that he (Kejriwal) was living in a fool’s paradise.
“Like the People’s Party of Punjab, the AAP will soon vanish into the thin air”, he remarked, while adding, “PPP leader Manpreet Badal still had integrity and credibility to his credit and he was the son of the soil and Kejriwal lacks in all these attributes”.
“I am surprised as why he did not claim 117 out of 117 because that could have suited and sounded much better for him”, Capt Amarinder remarked, while taunting Kejriwal’s “day dreaming”, saying, like a frog in the well he was miserably mistaken by presuming that Punjab was like Delhi and it may vote like Delhi.
The PCC president pointed out, since 2014 when the AAP won four parliamentary seats in Punjab, it had split vertically with two MPs already having revolted. Besides, the two bye-elections it contested, it forfeited the security deposit in both and after that it did not dare to contest any bye-election.
“If you have really started believing that you are going to sail on the political deadwood you have been importing from other parties, may God bless you as you are doomed and destined to drown”, the former Chief Minister told Kejriwal, adding, “no matter how much you try to polish it, deadwood will always remain deadwood only”.
Capt Amarinder said, if Kejriwal thinks that by inserting multi-page paid news supplements in Punjab’s newspapers, while spending Delhi taxpayers’ money, he can mislead or befool the Punjabis he is badly mistaken. “Punjabis are too wise to be fooled or carried away by your misleading ad-campaigns as they already know what has happened to Delhi and nobody can risk Punjab going that way”, he said.
He pointed out, compared to Rs 20 crore annual advertisement budget of Sheila Dixit’s government in Delhi, Kejriwal had allocated Rs 620 crores for advertisements. “And all that money he was spending in Punjab only to spread lies and befool people here”, he said, while remarking, “but let me tell you, you may be able to fool some people sometime, but you cannot fool all the people all the time”. -GP....

New Delhi, April 29, 2016:
The Union finance Ministry has agreed to increase interest rate on provident fund (PF) deposits to 8.8 per cent from the 8.7 per cent on Friday. This is the third roll back in the decision since the Union Budget following pressure from the trade unions and employees across the country on the Modi government
The rollback came after the Finance Ministry and the Labour Ministry were locked in an intense tussle over the rate of interest on the EPF deposits for 2015-16. The Labour Ministry had sought a review of the Finance Ministry's decision after trade unions, including the RSS-backed Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh attacked the lowering of the rate.
Finance Ministry had defended its decision to pay 8.7 per cent interest on EPF saying last year's surplus would have to be used to pay this rate.
