Chandigarh, October 25: Manohar Lal Khattar’s journey to the coveted post reflects upon the life of a man who remained grounded all his life, travelled on public transport, lived in every district of the state and toiled in paddy fields in sweltering heat as a farmer.
Khattar’s connect with the masses at the ground level and his expertise stem out of his insightful exposure in various domains as a farmer, trader, manufacturer, a finance planner and above all a social worker for the last 40-years.
Khattar shares an inseparable bond with farmers. In his early days as a school going kid, Khattar use to assist his father in farming- from sowing seeds to selling the produce in markets to earn a living. Post partition, his father after overcoming bottlenecks, bought a small piece of agricultural land and took up farming in village Banyani in Haryana. His aspiration to become a doctor brought him to New Delhi for higher education. At a young age, Khattar started trading by venturing into cloth business. His stay in New Delhi was with his relatives who were into similar business.
But the tricks of the trade were hard to learn without initial capital. Khattar borrowed money from his father, became a trader and eventually a manufacturer. He not only returned the money to his father, he shouldered the responsibility of taking care of his brothers and sisters with his earnings. It was this exposure that left Khattar with an insight into problems and difficulties faced by the traders and manufacturers, who dominate the urban and semi-urban landscape of Haryana and contribute to the state GDP.
Khattar’s stint with the corporate world based on his impeccable expertise in the field of finance are well accomplished, which is why the state can hope an upward trajectory in its growth and investments in the coming years.
As a Sangh Pracharak, he is the first CM of Haryana who has travelled every corner of the state and lived in each and every part of Haryana. His first posting as RSS Pracharak was at Faridabad, followed by accomplished tenures at Rohtak, Jagadhri, Yamunanagar, Karnal, Kurukshetra, Hissar, Bhiwani, etc.
An RSS Pracharak is mandated to travel in a public transport like buses, auto rickshaw, rickshaw, train etc. His long stint as a RSS Pracharak provided him an insight into problems of the people across all sections of the society. This exposure provided Khattar with an inseparable connect with the masses.
His unmatched organizational skills are well known and brought Manohar lal to centre stage of political discourse. He served as the General Secretary organisation of BJP Haryana from 1994 - 2004 before being elevated as Zonal Organisng Secretary of BJP for the states of J&K, Punjab, Himachal, Chandigarh & Haryana. Under his Chairmanship of Election Campaign Committee for Lok sabha Election in Haryana, the BJP romped home to a resounding victory winning 7 out of the 8 seats it contested.
Khattar, who walks tall with a clean upright and non-controversial image, always maintained a low profile and preferred that his record does the talking. He has been instrumental in BJP’s success in various states, including Gujarat and Chhattishgarh.....

Chandigarh, October 25 (Courtesy: HT): The Punjab government has decided to appoint a Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader from Malerkotla, Ajit Singh Chanduraian, as a member of the Punjab State Information Commission (PSIC).
As per information received from the chief minister’s office, CM Parkash Singh Badal has written to the governor, seeking time for administering the oath of office to Chanduraian.
Chanduraian, a former member of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), had contested the assembly polls from Malerkotla as an independent candidate in 1997, 2002 and 2012, but had lost on all occasions.

Chanduraian is close to SAD secretary general Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, on whose insistence he was taken back into the SAD fold and is being appointed member of the information commission.

Canada Parliament Attack

‘We huddled into a corner as shots were fired’ : Nina Grewal MP Ottawa

Canada, October 25 (Courtesy :HT) : When Canadian Prime minister Stephen Harper was speaking at about 9.30 am (local time) on Wednesday in a caucus room of parliament, we heard a couple of shots. We were not alarmed as we thought some construction work was going on. Then, more shots were heard and we were alarmed, more so as the prime minister was in the room, standing and speaking.
I heard close to 30 shots being fired. We were all alarmed and the first thing we did was to huddle in a corner as sitting there could have made us direct targets. Many of our colleagues stood around the PM to protect him.
THREAT AT THE DOOR
There are three entrances to the caucus room and there is security outside. And that could be the reason that the terrorist, Michael ZehaauBibeau, who was killed by parliament’s sergeant-atarms, could have entered the caucus room. It’s the first room you enter from the side of the Peace Tower. Heaven alone knows what could have happened!
We are not allowed to carry with us our smart phones and so I wondered how I could reach my family, how do I inform my loved ones that I am safe. I was praying all the time and also thinking, as were other colleagues, that this is my last day, I am not likely to survive, and praying within myself ‘God help me, God help me’.
LOCKED UP FOR 10 HOURS
We stayed locked up in the caucus room for over 10 hours as security personnel went to each room to secure the building. We didn’t know, as we were prisoners inside the caucus room, how many jihadis/terrorists were there. Were there two, three? We didn’t know who they were and why they chose to attack the Canadian Parliament, the most sacred Canadian institution, the heart of our democratic system.
After many hours, we were allowed to use our smar t phones and the first thing I naturally did was to tell my loved ones that we were all safe.
What on earth could have happened had this man entered the caucus room? I dread to think of that.
CHAOS IN CAUCUS ROOM
As soon as I got my phone, I took a few pictures of our caucus room, with chairs and tables all piled up against the doors -- that was the only thing we could think of to protect ourselves from inside. There was complete chaos inside the caucus room.
We have a couple of colleagues who are diabetics and they fell down. We all rushed to help them. We were undoubtedly terrorised for close to 10 hours.
Now, after more than 24 hours, I am still thinking that had the terrorist entered our room, he would have killed all of us.
HOMEGROWN TERROR
Personally, I think terrorism is now a global phenomenon and democratic societies are under attack. We have to fight them back. Our government will soon introduce a legislation to fight terrorists and extremists within our own country.
Those who killed an innocent Canadian reservist on duty at the War Memorial, in close proximity, is part of what we call homegrown terrorism.
I pray on this auspicious day of Diwali that it never happens again, that, God, I do not have to go through this experience ever again in my life.
(Nina Grewal talked to media persons over phone from Ottawa. She is a four-time MP of the Conservative Party)....

Ludhiana, October 24: Prof. Hazara Singh, an eminent educationist, a humanist, an author and freedom fighter passed away on October 22, 2014 at the ripe age of ninety-two leaving behind a loud message of a happy meaningful life for the posterity to follow. He has perhaps left no unfinished job as he felt satisfied with his sojourn here even during his brief illness. He left behind two daughters and two sons who all are successful in their respective careers. He outlived his wife by about six years.
He retired as Head of the Department of Languages, Journalism and Culture, PAU Ludhiana in 1982 and thereafter kept himself occupied with his pen, books and the social causes. He penned down about dozen books in English on different subjects. He was at ease in both prose and verse. His whole literary work can be accessed at www.hazarasinghprofessor.org. He remained optimistic till the close of his long innings. His age could never deter him to attend to the literary and other engagements. The people around him described him as a strict disciplinarian who never compromised on his principles.
During his studies, he contributed in Quit India Movement and later too as a prominent student leader for which his scholarship won by him in the Intermediate Examination (1943) was confiscated. This action of the British Government provided him further impetus to struggle for Independence of India with more determination.
He was awarded D.Lit. by World Literary Council for his outstanding poetical contributions.
A large number of his old students, colleagues, writers and the elite of the city attended his cremation and remembered him profusely. Prominent among them were Dr S.S. Johl, S. Jagdev Singh Jassowal, Prof, Gurbhajan Gill, Mr Rakesh Pandey, Principal Prem Singh Bajaj, Dr S.N. Sewak and Dr Jagmohan Singh who represented their organizations.
Wreaths of flowers were placed on his mortal frame by the members of Mewa Singh Gill Foundation of which he was the serving President.

Terms Punjab as most preferred investment destination in country

Ludhiana, October 24 : Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today said that the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) was and would ever remain an integral part of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in future also.
Interacting with the media persons on the sidelines of the state level function to mark the Vishwakarma Day here today, the Chief Minister categorically said that he had dedicated his entire life while struggling to safeguard the interests of Punjab and Punjabis adding that it was during this struggle that the ties of SAD with the NDA in general and BJP in particular were firmed up. Terming that the SAD- BJP alliance has always stood the test of time, Mr. Badal said that the SAD-BJP alliance was everlasting and both the parties should not be seen as different from each other. He said that the tried and tested alliance between both the parties was a unique phenomenon of the Indian democratic system, which has passed every litmus test in last few decades adding that the relationship between both the alliance partners was very strong, impeccable and cordial because it has been time and again cemented with mutual affection and understanding.
Expressing hope that respecting the verdict of people of Maharashtra BJP and Shiv Sena would form the next government in the state, the Chief Minister said that both these parties were having similar ideology and they would certainly join their hands to form the government in Maharashtra. Mr. Badal said that it was also the need of the hour so that major fillip could be given to the overall development of Maharashtra.
Replying to another query, the Chief Minister said that if extended an invitation he would surely attend the swearing in ceremony of Chief Minister designate of Haryana Mr. Manohar Lal Khattar.
Terming Punjab as the most preferred investment destination across the country, the Chief Minister said that state’s infra structure has been adjudged excellent by several renowned agencies across the globe. However, he said that due to the prolonged militancy and the step motherly treatment meted out by the successive congress governments, the industrial development of the state has been adversely effected. Mr. Badal further said that the incentives given by the Congress governments to the neighboring states have also given a severe blow to the industry in the state. “But the SAD-BJP government has made stupendous efforts for promoting industrialization in the state, which have been fructified” he added.
Earlier, paying rich tributes to Lord Vishwakarma, the Chief Minister said that he was divine architect of the entire universe, who was believed to be the master of all machinery and equipments being used by the people in the industrial activities. Exhorting the people to follow the footsteps of this great Deity of all craftsmen and architects, Mr. Badal said the promotion of skill training across the state would be befitting tribute to the Lord Vishwakarma, who has ever inspired the artisans, workers and labour class to work hard with utmost dedication and commitment to develop the nation. He said that in line with the ideology and teachings of Lord Vishwakarma, the Punjab government has been laying thrust on imparting skill training to the youth across the state so they could live a life with dignity and self respect.
The Chief Minister impressed upon the industrialists to make a solemn pledge of making whole hearted efforts for promoting skill training as it would be real tribute to Lord Vishwakarma. Mr. Badal said that it would not only help in generating employment for the youth but would also play a pivotal role in putting the state on high growth trajectory.
On the occasion, the Chief Minister also felicitated 41 industrialists.
Prominent amongst others present on the occasion included Cabinet Ministers Mr. Chunni Lal Bhagat, Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema and Mr. Sharanjit Singh Dhillon, MLA Mr. Ranjit Singh Dhillon, former Minister Jathedar Hira Singh Gabria, Deputy Commissioner Mr. Rajat Aggarwal and Commissioner Police Mr. Pramod Ban. ....

London, October 24: Marking the 30th anniversary of the November 1984 anti-Sikh pogroms, the Wiener Library is proud to feature the work 1984: Jis tann lãgé soee jãné by photographer Gauri Gill. The images and texts from the artist's 1984 notebooks reflect upon the pogroms and their ongoing impact in India. The images are from the resettlement colonies of Trilokpuri, Tilak Vihar and Garhi - various sites across Delhi - as well as protest rallies in the city. The accompanying texts by leading artists, poets, filmmakers and writers from Delhi remark upon the event, via the images, in thoughtful ways.
The exhibition also contains photographs of the pogrom as it occurred in November 1984 itself, and are drawn from the work of Indian photographers, Ashok Vahie, Ram Rahman and Sondeep Shankar.
Contributors to this project include contemporary Indian artist Arpana Caur; Senior Advocate and Human Rights activist, Harvinder Singh Phoolka, academic Dr Navsharan Singh; eminent historian Dr Uma Chakravarti; prizewinning Canadian author Jaspreet Singh and Parvinder Singh of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ).


The genocidal pogroms against the Sikh people in India in November 1984 left thousands dead. In many of the outer areas of the capital, New Delhi, whole neighborhoods were wiped out. Women were raped in large numbers. Senior politicians of the Congress (I) party led mobs, assisted by the police and administration. Thirty years on, no memorials exist to the dead and the perpetrators continue to enjoy complete impunity. But the silence is slowly breaking. Not just about the damage caused to the justice system, memory and language in India, but also about the individual and collective trauma that exists within Sikh communities across the world.
The event will feature speeches from Lord Indarjit Singh CBE, human rights barrister Schona Jolly and Parvinder Singh of the NUJ.
Professor Spencer is Director of the Helen Bamber Centre for the Study of Rights, Conflict and Mass Violence at Kingston University. His most recent book, Genocide since 1945 (Routledge, 2012) traces the history of genocide since the Holocaust looking at a number of cases across continents and decades.
Lord Indarjit Singh CBE is Director of the Network of Sikh Organisations UK, Vice Chair and Founder of the InterFaith Network UK. He is also Head and Co-Ordinator of the Sikh Chaplaincy Services. He is a member of the House of Lords, editor of the Sikh Messenger, presenter of 'Thought for the Day' on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 2's 'Pause for Thought'.
Schona Jolly is a writer, journalist and a barrister specialising in human rights and equality law. She is from London, but has lived and worked in a number of countries, including India. She is particularly interested in South Asian affairs and writes for a number of international publications on India. She is an executive committee member of the Bar Human Rights Committee.
Attendance at this event is free but booking is essential as space is limited. Exhibition Time 7pm to 10pm.
