Sangrur, 30th April 2016: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday assured the youth of Punjab that party would make all efforts to set up at least one library, one dispensary and a playground in almost every village in the state once it formed the government in 2017.

AAP in its ongoing programme of Punjab Dialogue also assured it would uplift the quality of education in the government schools which has been on the decline for many years under the rule of successive governments. AAP promised to install CCTV cameras and foolproof security in the buses to ensure better safety for the women.
On the demand of the youth AAP also vowed to put an end to the Mafia rule unleashed by certain student organizations in the educational institutes backed by various political outfits.

Besides, AAP also ensured to fill up all posts lying vacant in various government departments and to secure a minimum percentage of jobs for the Punjab based students in the private sector.

AAP’s Punjab dialogue team headed by senior journalist Kanwar Sandhu assured the aforesaid during his interaction with the Punjab youth who gathered in large numbers to express their views about the various problems being faced by them in the state.

Sandhu was also accompanied by national organizational secretary Durgesh Pathak, Sangrur MP, Bhagwant Mann, vice chairman Delhi Dialogue Commission (DDC), Ashish Khetan, senior leader Chander Suta Dogra and Punjab Youth wing president, Harjot Singh Bains.

During the interaction under the banner “Bolda Punjab”, (Punjab Speaks) the Punjab Dialogue team encouraged the youth to give valuable suggestions to help the party understand their core issues and thereafter resolve the same effectively once it constituted the government in Punjab.

The ongoing Punjab Dialogue would also help AAP to shape up its manifesto for the 2017 assembly polls and to give a clear road map to the youth of Punjab what would be in store for them in next five years once the party came to power in Punjab.
Addressing the youth that comprised an impressive number of girl students, who came from various educational institutes, Kanwar Sandhu said it was indeed very unfortunate that Punjab which was once known for robust health of the youth, rural sports such as wrestling and hockey these days was being seen as a safe haven for drugs.

“Our endeavor would be to set up at least one library, a dispensary and a play ground in each and every village of Punjab. This would help the youth cultivate the habit of reading and to develop interest in sports. Probably every seven to eight villages can also have a stadium for better sports facilities”, added Sandhu.
Sandhu said the party would formulate a detailed and multipronged sports policy to ensure that the youth of Punjab could compete at the highest levels.

Sandhu said since computerization was one of the major components of today’s education curricula the AAP would also try to set up cyber hubs all across Punjab. This way the rural youth could familiarize with the computers to keep pace with the rest of the world.

“We want you to dream big and let AAP help you accomplish those. We will provide you the wings and you just need to have the courage to fly”, said Sandhu to a thunderous applause of the youth.

Sandhu said AAP would strive hard to make the youth job providers rather than being job seekers. “We will try to introduce skill development programmes according to the need of the industry. Besides we will also introduce start up programmes for the young entrepreneurs”.

During the Punjab dialogue the youth asked questions and raised concerns about the deteriorating level of education in Punjab, law and order, child labour, rising incidences of dowry, increasing unemployment, vast spread of drug menace, women safety, farmers’ suicide and dwindling level of water table in the state to an alarming rate.

Earlier Khetan, elaborated on the various developmental projects accomplished by Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi especially in the health and education sectors.
Bhagwant Mann in his inimitable style said the party should engage in social politics in the state and said he would encourage the youth to get married without seeking the dowry.

London, April 30, 2016: Pravasi Bharat, has welcomed & thanked the Election Commission of India (ECI) for enabling online registration process to facilitate voting for Non-Resident Indians (Indian citizens living abroad) in Indian elections.

The press release issued by Parvasi Bharat says , "It is the known fact that, as an organisation we have been relentlessly working for the remote voting options for Indian Citizens living abroad (NRI’s) from 2012 onwards. We started with letters to government ministries, followed it with online petitions and demonstrations, marched in London, submitted follow-up requests and finally filed a PIL in Honourable Supreme Court. There were many significant step forwards which we have achieved on this subject so far.

In the course of our journey, we believe this is a big step forward – and our heartfelt thanks to ECI, for taking up measures to increase the overseas voter registration.

Therefore importantly, it is now the duty of every non-resident Indian citizen to get themselves registered and spread the word.

Through this press release, we would like to appeal to every eligible NRI to get registered online at http://www.nvsp.in/forms/form6a.html "


The release further said that every vote is important in a democracy, as the elected representatives of a democratic country are endowed with trust, responsibility and power to work for its development.

The elected representatives have a huge say in some of the most critical areas which affect day-to-day life of all citizens including education, health, policing, infrastructure, external and internal affairs. An election gives the public an opportunity to select their representatives who can change/improve how these departments are conducted.

Official records indicate that there are over 10 million Indian citizens living abroad, and with 543 Lok Sabha constituencies, this converts into an incredible average of 18,000 votes per constituency. These additional votes, if polled, will obviously play a crucial role in India’s development. We believe it is a fundamental duty of every NRI to register to vote & have our say in India’s development & well-being through the http://www.nvsp.in/forms/form6a.html -GP....

Reiterates his commitment to ensure well being of the peasantry

SAS Nagar (Mohali), April 30, 2016: The Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today said that Punjab Kisan Vikas Chamber (PKVC)-Farmers’ advisory body first of its kind in the country would help the sagging agrarian economy to come a stage back as this platform would prove to be a milestone in putting the views of eminent agriculture experts and economists across the state government as well as Government of India in streamlining the policies related to agriculture and allied farming.
While laying the foundation stone of PKVC to be constructed over two acres of land here in Aero City, the Chief Minister said that this farmers’ autonomous body would certainly help them to do lobbying to get their genuine demands accepted at the Centre’s level through persuasion within the democratic means. He said this Chamber on the pattern of industrial organizations like Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), PHD Chamber of Commerce,Associated Chambers of Commerce of India (ASSOCHAM) and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) would provide affirmative say of peasantry in the policies and programs related to agricultural and allied activities.
The Chief Minister said this would be a non-political forum exclusively dedicated to the cause of farming community. He also said that eminent academicians and experts in different fields of Agriculture and allied services have been nominated in this prestigious organization adding Mr. Badal said that this body would surely reach zenith of its glory under stewardship of Chairman Punjab Farmers’ Commission Dr. G.S. Kalkat as its patron and leading progressive farmer Mr. Kulwant Singh as its President. Mr. Badal said the entire construction cost of the chamber’s complex would be borne by the state government and the adequate land had been provided by GMADA free of cost. The state government had initially provided Rs. 20 crore as corps fund to run the chamber till it becomes fully self sustainable.
The Chief Minister said it was high time to set up such organization to provide an interactive platform to the farmers so as to enable them to take up their issues at an appropriate level for the quick resolution to their satisfaction. Mr. Badal said that the chamber would engage the services of renowned agriculture experts for seeking their advice on matters related to the agriculture sector. This would help the chamber to contest their claims vigorously with the central and state government in a meaningful and result oriented manner. Likewise, legal advice on certain contentious issues with regard to inter-state marketing and export policies would be sought from legal experts.
Speaking on the function, Patron of PKVC Dr. Kalkat said that this chamber was the brainchild of Mr. Badal who was deeply concerned to resolve the current agrarian crisis and committed for the welfare of the farmers especially the small and marginal ones. He said this initiative of the state government would go a long way in putting our dwindling agriculture economy on strong pedestal. He hoped the chamber in close coordination with PAU would give far better extension services to motivate the farmers for adopting new farm practices on scientific lines.
On the occasion, the Chief Minister honored the Additional Chief Secretary (Development) Mr. Suresh Kumar on his superannuation with the shawl and sword as a token of love and affection. He highly appreciated the services rendered by Mr. Kumar in each and every department where he served in different capacities with full commitment, professional zeal and honesty.
Prominent amongst others who were present on the function included Agriculture Minister Mr. Tota Singh, Chief Parliamentary Secretaries Mr. Des Raj Dhugga and Mr. NK Sharma, Secretary Agriculture Mr. Vivek Partap Singh, Special Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Mr. Gaggandip Singh Brar, Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Balwinder Singh Sidhu and Director Agriculture Mr. Jasbir Singh Bains, DIG Rupnagar Mr. Gursharan Singh, Deputy Commissioner Mohali Mr. DS Mangat and SSP Mohali Mr. GS Bhullar. -Gp....

Chandigarh, April 30, 2016: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today said assertions of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) selling tickets for the forthcoming assembly elections in Punjab had come true with senior leader H S Phoolka trying to distance himself from this trade.
In a statement here, SAD general secretary Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said it was clear from Phoolka's statement that some elements in AAP were indulging in malpractices. He said Phoolka had tried to distance himself from this sordid trade by asking ticket seekers not to come to his door. He however said try as he might, Phoolka could not absolve himself from blame on this score. "You are closest to the outsider elements of AAP who are being accused of collecting money from gullible Punjabis. If you are truly sincere and have no role in ticket distribution you should expose such elements and save Punjabis from being duped", he added.
Dr Cheema also advised Phoolka not to enact dramas and try to project himself differently from other AAP leaders. "If you really want to be different and want to be seen as such you should tell Punjabis your stand on core issues which concern them. You should tell them why you did not raise your voice when your party president Arvind Kejriwal betrayed the farmers of Punjab on the issue of the SYL canal. Where were you when the 'piau' at Sisganj Gurdwara was being demolished. Please clarify yourself on these issues before trying to take on the mantle of a saint by releasing videos professing people should not come to you for seeking party tickets", he added.
The Akali spokesman said the video was also reflective of the autocratic rule in AAP in which Punjab leaders did not have any say. He said AAP leaders from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar were calling the shots in the Punjab unit of the party and people like Phoolka had no option but to vent their frustration through such videos.
Dr Cheema said it was unfortunate that AAP had taken Punjabis for granted and felt they could be brow beaten into submission. He said Punjabis were a proud community and would never tolerate playing second fiddle to outsiders. "What AAP is trying to do by imposing outsiders on Punjabis is very insulting and will not be tolerated", he said adding Phoolka should stop worrying whom people should approach to seek tickets. "Instead you should apologise to Punjabis for introducing this culture of forcible money collection through fund raising programmes in Punjab. This culture has resulted in even party tickets being put on sale. You should condemn this culture and expose it. If you can't do so please stop posting videos which try to project you as being different from your own party men", Dr Cheema added. -GP....

Chandigarh April 30, 2016: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi today slammed union HRD minister, Smriti Irani for hurting the Crores of Indians by not taking action against those who disgraced Shaheed Bhagat Singh by quoting him as ‘Terrorist’ in Delhi University books. He asked the minister to resign on the moral grounds.
Ghuggi criticized the previous governments of Punjab and centre for forgetting the martyrs who laid down lives for the country’s freedom. The families of the martyrs are forced to survive in a bad condition due to the apathy of the governments.
“It is surprising that great martyrs of this country are admired by the foreign governments but his own government has not done the needful in this regard. AAP government will set up Chairs in the name of Bhagat Singh in the Universities of Punjab, so that youngsters could do research and be inspired from the life of Martyr”. Ghuggi added.
He said that it is the irony of this great country that the names of the martyrs who lost their lives in the freedom struggle have not been registered in the list of Central government even after the 68 years of the independence. It is very unpleasant that freed fighters are maligned by the people of their own country.
“If Shaheed-E-Azam was a terrorist then why did the government installed his statue in the Indian Parliament? The British judgment described him as ‘true revolutionary’ but his own countrymen are disgracing him. We demand immediate removal of the book that quoted the great Martyr as terrorist from the syllabus of the Delhi University and strict action should be taken against the people responsible. ” Ghuggi added. -GP....

SAD-BJP combine spent manifold on development & welfare schemes than previous Congress Governments

No dearth of funds for developmental and welfare activitie

Majitha/Amritsar April 30, 2016: counteracting the false, malicious and baseless assertions of the political opponents with regard to the financial situation of the Punjab state, Mr. Bikram Singh Majithia, Revenue and Public Relations Minister said that people have witnessed the unprecedented development and growth of the state for the past nine years. Because of developmental and pro-people policies, the SAD-BJP combine is heading towards a “hat-trick” and would form the next government.
Addressing a massive gathering at Majitha while disbursing hundreds of power connections for Tube-wells to the farmers of Kathunangal and Majitha circles, Mr. Majithia said that the pro-people governments are not formed to earn profit rather such governments ensure all round development and welfare of the states by executing especially envisaged programmes and policies for people.
Mr. Majithia said that there was no dearth of funds for executing developmental and welfare schemes in Punjab under able leadership of the Chief Minister S. Parkash Singh Badal and deputy Chief Minister S. Sukhbir Singh Badal.
Interacting with the media, he said that over all development in the rural as well as urban areas together with number of welfare schemes envisaged for the people of the state was the evidence that the present government has spent manifold on the pro-people schemes as compared to the previous Congress led governments. He said that promises and commitments made with the people have been largely fulfilled. Punjab was now power surplus, excellent road network, transformation of villages with full connectivity. Besides this the government, true to its commitment, has ensured to boost up each and every section of the society, students, farmers, aged, women, traders all have been covered under various schemes launched exclusively for these sections.
Mr. Majithia also said that the Government was also committed to provide new connections to the farmers but unfortunately because of the case sub-judice in Green Tribunal, it could not be materialized. He also informed that once the decision of the Tribunal comes, the government would instantaneously release the new tube-well connections. He made an appeal to people to timely complete the formalities of the Power Department and get their connections operational. Adding further, Mr. Majithia said that the state government was paying the motor electricity bills of the farmers from out of the state exchequer since 2007 and an expenditure of more than Rs. 33,000 crore has been incurred on this.
Referring to a comprehensive insurance scheme under the name of "Bhagat Puran Singh Sehat Bima Yojana", the Minister said that this scheme was introduced for providing health insurance cover of Rs. 50000/- per annum per family plus Rs. 5 lacs cover for accidental death and complete disability for HoF of the 28.90 lakh blue card holders families, 11 lac marginal J Form holder farming families, 2.33 lakh small traders and 2.32 lakh construction workers. State has earmarked Rs. 116 crore for this purpose. Additional financial assistance of Rs. 5 lakh as against damages due to fire in the business premises would also be given by the government. He also said that the government has already announced financial assistance of Rs. 5 Lakh for the child education and interest free 1 Lakh as crop loan to the farmers.
In a major pro-people move, Mr. Majithia said that the Punjab government has waived off total registration fee charged for transfer of property between spouses and blood relations in urban and rural areas with immediate effect, giving a big relief to thousands of such beneficiaries. People have taken advantage of about Rs. 200 crore within first three months of the announcements. He urged the people to take maximum advance of this scheme so that any litigation within the families could be avoided.
Prominent amongst others who were present on the occasion included Mr. Talbir Singh Gill, Major Shivi, Chief Engineer Border Zone Mr. Jagjit Singh Suchhu, Pradeep Saini, Maninder pal Singh, Babbi Bhangwan, Media Advisor Prof. Sarchand Singh, Gagandeep Singh Bhakna, Advocate Rajesh Prashar,MD Cooperative Bank, Sukhvinder Singh Gill, Kulwinder Singh Dhaliwal, Capt.

New Delhi, April 30, 2016: Government of India’s National LED programme - Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA) was launched today in Madhya Pradesh by Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Union Minister for State (IC) for Power, Coal and Renewable Energy Shri Piyush Goyal, at a function held in Bhopal. The scheme is being implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture of PSUs under the Ministry of Power.

While addressing the gathering , Shri Goyal said that with the launching of UJALA scheme in Madhya Pradesh today , energy revolution has begun and will transform the State. In the State, 3 crore LED Bulbs will be distributed in the next 6 months under the Scheme . People of Madhya Pradesh will get energy efficient 9W LED bulbs at an upfront payment of just Rs. 85 per LED bulb, Shri Goyal added. The Minister further stated that within just one year , 9 crore bulbs have been distributed under UJALA Scheme, which helped consumers to save Rs 5500 crore every year. UJALA will not only help reduce consumers their electricity bills but also contribute to the energy security of India. The UJALA scheme is being monitored in a transparent manner through a national dashboard (www.delp.in).

In his address, Shri Chouhan hoped that UJALA scheme will bring UJALA in the lives of everyone. He said that usage of LED bulbs will not only results in reducing electricity bills but also help in environment protection

The distribution of LED bulbs will happen through DISCOM offices, DISCOM bill collection centres, designated EESL kiosks, Weekly haat markets, etc. Consumers can buy these affordable LEDs by presenting any identity card. These bulbs come with a three year free replacement warranty in case of any technical defects. The luminosity of the 9W LED bulbs to be distributed in MP is of 900 lumens, which is the highest in the country. Each 9W LED bulb gives the same luminosity as compared to a 100W incandescent lamp, while consuming less than one tenth of power.

The function was graced by several ministers and MLA’s of the MP government.


‘UJALA’ : Status Update :

As of now, EESL has distributed over 10 crore LED bulbs under UJALA programme and this has led to significant savings to the country and consumers who are using these bulbs.

Under India’s commitment to achieving 30-35% reduced carbon emissions, the country has recognized energy efficiency as a key mitigation strategy. Therefore, the government is committed to executing schemes like UJALA. State governments are voluntarily adopting this scheme and the scheme is already present in over 13 states. EESL would be starting distribution in more states within a month.

The UJALA scheme has played a significant role in creating awareness about energy efficient lighting. In 2014-15, the total number of LED bulbs that were distributed was mere 30 lakhs. The number of LED bulbs distributed in 2015-16 has crossed 15 crore, where 9 crore LED bulbs were distributed under UJALA and the remaining were contributed by the industry. For this year, the Government of India is confident of distributing an additional 20 crore LED bulbs. Sustained efforts under UJALA, coupled with industry support, will help the government achieve its objective of replacing 77 crore inefficient bulbs by March 2019.

Efficient domestic lighting is one of the largest contributors to energy savings globally and the distribution of 10 crore LED bulbs in India has led to savings of over 1,298 crore kWh annually. This number has also helped the country avoid capacity of about 2,600 MW. Most importantly, the country has benefitted from reduction of CO2 emission by over 1 crore tonnes annually.



LED bulbs consume half the energy as that of CFLs and one tenth as that of incandescent bulbs. UJALA is the largest non-subsidised LED programme in the world. The programme has led to significant savings to the consumers who are using these bulbs.

National savings under UJALA scheme:



Estimated Annual energy savings 1,298 crore kWh annually

Estimated reduction of peak load 2,600 MW

Estimated Annual cost reduction of bills of consumers INR 5,195 crore annually

Annual estimated greenhouse gas emission reductions 1 crore tonnes of CO2 annually

For enjoying the benefits of the scheme the consumer just needs to visit the UJALA dashboard www.delp.in to locate the closest distribution kiosk to their place. The UJALA scheme has now become a revolution and each person counts. Energy savings achieved from switching to LED bulbs is helping light up a home somewhere in the country. -GP....

Mohali, April 30, 2016: Fortis Hospital, Mohali successfully operated on three children, who arrived about a fortnight ago from Zimbabwe under the Rotary Club of Chandigarh’s Heartline project. There is another batch of six girls, including four teenagers, who also arrived from Rwanda under the programme to undergo life-saving heart surgery at the hospital.

Mr Rajendra K Saboo, former Rotary International President, and Mr Abhijit Singh, Facility Director, together welcomed the children, along with the team of heart surgeons led by Dr. T S Mahant, Executive Director, Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery at Fortis Mohali.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Saboo said, “Rotary Club of Chandigarh initiated the project of free-heart surgeries in 1999. Since 2006, Fortis Hospital, Mohali collaborated which helped complete 602 surgeries on poor children from India, including a few from the developing world.”

Mr Saboo further added that partnership with Fortis Hospital in Mohali has already saved the lives of 440 children since 2006.

“It’s a project that is very dear to our hearts as it reflects our commitment to the cause of quality, compassionate patient care and being a support system for the underprivileged and vulnerable sections of the society. It’s a privilege to work with Rotary Club of Chandigarh and we specially thank Mr Saboo, who had started this project, for his tremendous efforts and support to the cause,” Mr Abhijit Singh said.

“Let no child suffering from any congenital cardiac disease die for want of money,” was the commitment that the Rotary Club had made in 1999. It was initiated as ‘Gift of Life’, added Mr Saboo.

Dr T S Mahant, who was accompanied by Dr Rajat Gupta (Consultant – Paediatric Cardiology) and Dr Garima Garg (Associate Consultant, Paediatric Cardiology), commended his team for their dedication. Dr Mahant said, “Despite the language barrier that we face with patients from African countries, the best reward and satisfaction that we get is that priceless smile and joy on the faces of the parents of these children. This strengthens our belief in the oneness and humanity.”

Accompanied by their respective mothers, two boys, named Takunda (11 years), Tafadzwa (11 years), and a girl Farirai (3-1/2 years) from Zimbabwe were all agog with joy. However, one girl Heather (1 year) could not be operated because of complications. She has been advised surgery after two years, informed Rtn. Hassan Singh Mejie, Chairman of Rotary Heartline project.

Rtn. Sukhjit Singh Gill, Project Coordinator and Mona Khattar, Secretary of the Club, informed that six girls from Rwanda, who arrived yesterday are in the age group of 11 to 19 years, and are accompanied by a doctor and an attendant.

Mr Saboo, who led many medical missions in African countries, was approached by various African governments to help in saving lives of children with congenital heart ailments. About 10 children from Zimbabwe and 20 from Rwanda are supposed to go heart surgery at Fortis Hospital, informed President of Rotary Club of Chandigarh D.P. Singh.

Mr Abhijit Singh said, “The surgeries are done at concessional rates and often do not cover the cost of the procedure and stay, etc. However, commitment of Fortis Hospital, Mohali to the decade old association with Rotary to save lives of children is our commitment towards providing medical excellence along with best patient care for our patients,” said Mr Singh.

Chandigarh, April 30, 2016 (Courtesy HT):
The Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) has approved an average hike of 17.8% in power tariff for all categories of consumers with effect from April 1.
The new structure means that a domestic user in the highest consumption bracket will pay ` 5 per unit, from ` 4.4 previously. For the lowest consumption bracket in the domestic category, the per unit cost has been increased to ` 2.55 per unit (see box).
The tariff has been fixed for three years and the government has the right to increase it by filing a petition.
The last tariff revision was done in 2012 that had led to a gap between revenue and expenditure.
The UT electricity department had proposed a hike of up to 40 per cent — in different slabs .The department’s previous representation for increase in tariff was turned down due to its failure to get a commercial audit done.
The fixed charges for a domestic connection has been hiked by around 40% to ` 10 per KW/ month.
Under the commercial category, which is a non-residential area, the fixed charge has been increased to ` 20/KW/month for single phase and for three phase, the rate has been hiked to ` 100/ KW/month. The tariff for agriculture has been increased to ` 2.9 per unit from ` 2.3 per unit.
The peak demand of the UT electricity department is around 350MW, which is being met from different central/state generating stations. UT has no generating capacity and receives 67% of its power through SAS Nagar (PSEB), about 10% through Dhulkote (BBMB) and remaining 23% through Nalagarh.
On the demand for giving meter reading cards to all consumers, the commission has said the idea had been noted for future action and demanded a plan to be chalked out.
CROSS-SECTION OF VIEWS
RTI activist R K Garg said, “The electricity department is running into losses and increased rates will put burden on common man. The department should be transparent.”
“The hike will burden the industrialists. The policy has many loopholes. They will charge separately on units and the load, which will inflate consumers’ bills. Consumers should be charged as per the units consumed,” said Arun Mahajan, member, industrial advisory committee
“The rates should not be increased; it is an unnecessary move. The need is to check power thefts,” said Baljinder Singh Bittu, chairman, FOSWAC.

Chandigarh, April 30 (Courtesy Daily Post):
Unprofitable farming coupled with mounting debt is driving Punjab’s farmers to end their lives. Making an addition to an already alarming list which included a shocking incident of a farmer and his mother committing suicide at Jodhpur village in Barnala district three days back when a commission agent brought police along to dispossess them of their land, following the court orders, at least three more farmers took the extreme step on Friday at different places in Punjab. Shockingly, a farmer Amrik Singh of Saidowala consumed some poisonous substance and committed suicide in a Phillaur court premises. The debt-burdened farmer had gone to the court to appear in a legal case. As Singh was palpitating, he was rushed to Civil Hospital, Ludhiana, where he succumbed to the poison. In the second case, a farmer Mukhtiar Singh upset over his failure to repay the loan committed suicide at Bhindi Aulakh village in Ajnala assembly segment.
Mukhtiar, as learnt, had even sold his two-acre agricultural land but even after that he could not clear his liabilities, which forced him to take the extreme step. The deceased was owing Rs 12 lakh as debt to the banks and other private lenders, as learnt. In the third such case, one Bachittar Singh of Natt village in Bathinda consumed pesticide and ended his life. He too was quite depressed due to the debt burden. The villagers informed that Bachittar was owing Rs 5 lakh loan to different persons.
As per the information placed in Parliament on Monday, as many as 56 farmers in Punjab had ended their lives this year, till March 11. However, the Bhartiya Kisan Union (Dakunda) general secretary Jagmohan Singh claimed that over 100 farmers and farm labourers had committed suicide in the state in last one month or so.
With farmer suicides becoming a major political issue in the wake of next year polls, farm economists put the size of debt on rural household at Rs 72,000 crore from institutional and non-institutional sectors. Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Thursday urged the Centre to rope in eminent agricultural experts to suggest ways and means to arrest the trend of constantly dwindling profits from agriculture income due to unfriendly farmer policies.

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.

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....
