The National President, IACC, Mr. Chella K.

Union Minister for Food Processing Industries, Govt of India Smt.

Chandigarh, September 18: Dr Ambedkar Joint Action Committee of Scheduled Caste MBBS Aspirants and Thinkers will hold a peaceful Dharna at Kharar on September 19, 2014 at 11 AM in protest against usurpation of MBBS seats for SC candidates and given to general category violating the Reservation Policy and Constitutional Provisions. According to Kirpal Singh, Chairman of the Committee, the whole SC community is sore over this decision of governments and recent counseling done by Baba Farid University of Health Sciences.
As stated by Punjab Government these seats could not be filled up from the SC category students as sufficient number of students could not qualify the AIPMT test. It is worth mentioning that in the past the admission were made by relaxing the marks . Moreover , in AIPMT out of 29 states only 9 states and out of 7 UT only Chandigarh participated . Thus, medical aspirants of 20 states and 6 UT did not appear and were given admissions through their respective state Pre Medical Entrance Tests. Further, under pressure from Punjab state Dental Colleges government of Punjab made a clever move and conducted a retest for these BDS courses letting aside the result of AIPMT. It is worth questioning here that if this modification is permissible then why a combined test for both MBBS and BDS seats was conducted to fill the vacant SC seats in MBBS course? It can be inferred that this is a deliberate step to adversely affect the interest of SC of Punjab origin aspiring to be MBBS.

It is important to mention here that none other than Principal Secretary of Department of Welfare is the competent authority for de-Reserving proposals and order any changes . Principal Secretary Medical Education is in no case a competent authority to take any decisions regarding the Reservation Policy. In this case , approval of neither Principal Secretary Welfare nor National Commission For SC or State SC Commission was seeked therefore, this de-reservation is void as it is already banned.

Punjab has about every third person belonging to Dalit (31.9% census 2011) mostly belonging to labour and BPL families whose voice is often kept unheard. If this scenario prevailed Medical Education will become a forbidden fruit for them and will never dare to get Medical after +1. This will leave the slogan of providing governance comparable to Maharaja Ranjit Singh rather hollow.
In the past governments have been relaxing the criteria and Congress Government headed by S. Beant Singh found to be a fine example who admitted students by initiating the process on its own in order to give admissions.....

Khadoor Sahib (Tarn Taran), September 18 : Squarely blaming the successive Congress governments at the centre for the ‘financial crunch’ in the state, the Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today said that the step motherly treatment by Congress coupled with its regressive policies have broken the backbone of Punjab’s economy.
Interacting with the media persons on the sidelines of political conference to mark the Gurta Gaddi diwas of Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji here today, the Chief Minister said that the Congress has always adopted an anti-Punjab stance against the state due to which the development of the state has suffered a lot. He said that Punjab’s economy has been adversely affected due to the partition of the country and prolonged militancy but it got the fatal blow when the Congress granted incentives to the neighboring states, which led to the mass exodus of the industry of the state to these hilly states. “Punjab’s economy was derailed due to wrong policies of the Congress but we are trying our level best to put it back on track” added
Badal.
Terming the formation of Modi government at the centre as a ‘silver lining’ for the state, the Chief Minister said that the days of discrimination with Punjab were over and now an era of unprecedented development would be heralded in the state. He expressed hope that the NDA government would soon allot some key projects, which would give impetus to the overall development of the state. Mr. Badal further said that the Modi government has taken over the reins of the nation recently but it would certainly give major projects to the state very soon.

The Chief Minister further said that the media has misinterpreted the letters written by Union Finance and Defence Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley whereas the reality was that the Union Minister had just referred the issue of debt waiver of state and revision of formula for Army recruitment to the concerned quarters. Showering heaps of praises for Mr. Jaitley, he said that due to the personal efforts of the Union Minister the holy city of Amritsar had got several key projects. Taking at jibe at former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh for his regular absence from Amritsar, Mr. Badal said that though Mr. Jaitley was doing so much for the holy city despite of his defeat but on the other hand the Lok Sabha MP elected by people was never seen anywhere.

When asked to comment on dismal performance of BJP in recently concluded by-elections, the Chief Minister said that it was wrong to construe it as a referendum against the Modi government. He said that these elections were fought on local issues and hardly had any connection with the Modi waive.

The Chief Minister further said that the sole motive of Shiromani Akali Dal’s tie up with Indian National Lok Dal in ensuing Haryana assembly polls was to defeat the Congress party. He said that this would not have any bearing on age old ties of SAD-BJP as both the alliance partners were committed from routing the Congress out of power.

Earlier addressing the mammoth gathering, the Chief Minister slammed the Congress party for irrelevantly meddling in the religious affairs of the Sikhs. He said that the sinister moves of Congress government in Haryana and Maharashtra to constitute separate Gurdawara Management Committee and reducing the representation of SGPC in Hazoor Sahib board respectively has given a severe blow to Sikh psyche. Mr. Badal said that the Sikhs could never forgive the Congress for Operation Blue
Star and 1984 Sikh genocide.

Taking the Congress party to cudgels, the Chief Minister further said that it was deliberately trying to weaken the SGPC, the supreme organization of the Sikhs, which was not at all tolerable. He bemoaned that the Congress party has a dubious track record of step motherly treatment with the state adding that it has derived the Punjabis from their legitimate share in river waters, Punjabi speaking areas and even from their capital.

Listing the achievements of the SAD-BJP government to make Punjab a power surplus state, the Chief Minister said that the Goindwal Thermal Power Plant would be soon made operational, which would further enhance the power generation capacity of the state. He said that the state government has made elaborate arrangements for providing coal linkage to this ambitious project, which would usher in an era of unprecedented development in the state.

Laying thrust on the need for imparting skill training to the youth of the state, the Chief Minister said that it was the need of the hour for opening new vistas of self employment for them. He said that the state government has set a target of providing skill training to alleast one lakh youth every year for which a vast network of skill training institutes have been set up. Likewise, Mr. Badal also exhorted the farmers to adopt crop diversification as the traditional agriculture was no longer a profitable venture.

The Chief Minister was accompanied by Lok Sabha MP Jathedar Ranjit Singh Brahampura, Chief Parliamentary Secretary Prof. Virsa Singh Valtoha, MLAs Mr. Manjit Singh Mianwind and Jathedar Hari Singh Zira, Chairman District Planning Committee Tarn Taran Mr. Ravinder Singh Brahampura, senior Akali leaders Jathedar Alwinder Pal Singh Pakhoke and Jathedar Veer Singh Lopoke besides his Special Principal Secretary Dr. S Karunaraju.....

Bajwa raps Badal for unprincipled alliances for vested interests

Khadoor Sahib/Chandigarh, September 18: The Punjab Congress President, Partap Singh Bajwa, today lambasted the Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal, for entering into alliances with other political parties purely to protect his vested business interests rather than on any ideological basis as evident from Haryana. He announced that the Congress would mobilise the farmers in the state against anti-farmer policies of the governments both at the centre as well as in the state.

Addressing an impressive gathering here on the holy land associated with Guru Angad Dev, the PPCC chief pointed out that the Akali Dal was in alliance with the BJP in the state and at the centre but the party was opposing its own alliance partner in neighbouring Haryana where it was in partnership with the Indian National Lok Dal led by Om Parkash Chautala, now in Tihar jail, citing family ties while in essence, business interests were at the core. It was the Devi Lal government which had allotted to kland to the Badal where now stand a seven star hotel.

He said Badal had been trading the Haryana Sikhs for the business interests of his family and it was for this reason that he had misused every Sikh institution to oppose the formation of the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee as this was going to end his monopoly. He said while the formation of this committee had fulfilled longstanding demand of the Sikhs in that state to manage their own shrines, it would facilitate their emergence as a powerful group which facilitate them to bargain directly keeping in view the interests of the community in that state. He said the population of the Sikhs was second highest in Haryana after Punjab but till now, they lacked such a platform and hence they were getting ignored.

He announced that the Congress would launch agitation shortly on the issues concerning the farmers, the immediate one being reduction in the moisture limit from 15 to 14 per cent which would create problems, especially in the context of late monsoons. This step of GoI will virtually destroy the Rice Shelling industry in Punjab and farmers will have to face lot of hardships to sell the paddy crop.

He said on this land where Guru Angad Dev evolved Gurmukhi script, Badal should tell the people as to why Punjabi was being ignored even in Union territory of Chandigarh where it did not enjoy the status of a second language. He slammed the Chief Minister for just resorting to sloganeering to exploit the sentiments of the people without getting a single demand accepted. Earlier he could pass on the blame to the UPA government at the centre alleging discrimination but now it was his own government in power at the centre in which his own daughter-in-law s Harsiat Kaur Badal was the cabinet minister.

He recalled that Badal had bestowed the honour of Sardar-e-Azam on Narendra Modi during his visit to Punjab who, after taking over as the Prime Minister, had rebuffed Punjab on every issue. “ Badal promised truckloads of money with Modi becoming Prime Minister but on the contrary, the Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, had rejected the demand for a special package. The tyres of his money truck have been deflated by the Modi government. Yet another blow to Punjab is the change in paddy specification which would affect both farmers and the millers. The third shocker is the rejection of yet another long pending demand by Jaitley in his capacity as the Defence Minister relating to recruitment in the armed forces on the basis of merit rather than the present system of quota”, he added.

The PPCC asserted it was former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh who deserved the honour of Sardar-e-Azam as he had never turned back Badal while Modi had become inaccessible to the Punjab Chief Minister as his picture with him presenting him a bouquet had not appeared in the papers for a long time.


He alleged that while Badal and Badals had promised truckloads of money, these were there but going out in private trucks in the form of earnings from sand and drugs. He also charged the Badal government with frittering away the allocation of Rs. 850 made by the UPA government to the state to deal with the problem of waterlogging and floods. He said heavy rains had again created havoc in parts of the Malwa region and Badal must explain to the people as to where they money had been diverted. He demanded a white paper on the utilization of the funds released by UPA for this purpose.

He slammed Badal for squandering the public money through Sangat Darshans. Rs 3000 crores is being squandered through Sangat Darshans every year purely on the whims and fancies of the CM. Badal is still stuck in the feudal mindset. Now even Arun Jaitley has raised serious objections of misuse of RDF and PIDB funds and the Union finance minister wants these funds to be routed through consolidated funds for monitoring and transparency.

SahbazMinhas of the ISI had joint meetings with Wadhawa Singh (BKI) and Rattandeep Singh to effect the new arrangement. The ISI picked up Rattandeep Singh to head the BTFK. As the new head of the revived BTFK, Rattandeep Singh sneaked into India to carry out violent terrorist strikes so that revival of the BTFK could comecenter-stage. It was decided by the ISI that time is ripe for spectacular terrorist action in Punjab as the festival season has begun and the impact of such strikes would be optimal.
3. Preliminary investigations have disclosed that the first target of Rattandeep Singh is a prominent Hindu leader. The intended target is already having personal protection provided by the Punjab Police. This fresh attempt by the ISI to revive militancy in the State has come about a year after 3 targeted plans had been pre-empted and foiled by the Punjab Police in August and September 2013. At that time also prominent Hindu personalities at Amritsar, Gurdaspur and Pathankot had been targeted. Those attempts had been made by the Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) modules all of whom were arrested. Presently, the Head of the KLF, Harminder Singh @ Mintu is in Pakistan and no fresh activity of the KLF has come to notice. In February 2013, Narain Singh @ Chaura had been sent by the ISI to attempt revival of terrorism and he had been arrested by the Punjab Police.
4. Rattandeep Singh is a Pakistan-based militant who had been living in Pakistan since 1993. In between he has been coming to India to carry out strikes. He had recently re-entered the country to carry out a major strike.
5. He was the kingpin of a group of militants who had planted explosives in a vehicle in Amritsar near Circuit House in May 2010 and for that purpose he had smuggled in a consignment of weapons and explosives from across the border. His associates in this offence, Pal Singh of France, Gurmukh Singh @ Ganna and Makhan Singh @ Amli have been convicted under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act for 27 years, 17 years and 10 years respectively while other associates Narain Singh @ Chaura, Sukhdev Singh @ SukhaChira, Joga Singh, Gurmeet Singh, Sher Singh, Bakshish Singh @ Baba, Daljit Singh @ Jeetu, Pakistan national Mohd. Ishfaq and Satpal Singh @ Ladi are undergoing trial. Rattandeep Singh and Narain Singh @ Chaura had absconded at that time. Chaura was trapped and arrested by the Punjab Police in February 2013 and is presently lodged in Amritsar jail. With the arrest of Rattandeep Singh, all the operatives of the terrorist gang involved in the offence have been arrested.
6. Rattandeep Singh iswanted in several militant offences in the country in the states of Punjab and Haryana and the Union Territory of Chandigarh. He is wanted in connection with a bomb blast at Passport Office, Sector 34, Chandigarh(1999), bomb blast on railway bridge in Panipat(1999), planting of anIED(Improvised Explosive Device) on the railway track at the Shahabad-Markanda bridge (1998), encounter with police and escape from custody (1999) andrecovery of arms and explosives in district Jind in (1996 & 2000).
7. Rattandeep Singh is a top militant and a cash reward of Rs.10 lakh was announced for him in 2011. However, a policy decision has been taken by the Punjab Police to not claim any cash reward(s).
8. Rattandeep Singh belongs to village Rohar in district Jind in Haryana. In March 1992 he went to Bangkok, Thailand and from there went to Germany in May 1992, shifting to Belgium in September 1992. He went to Pakistan in March 1993 on forged passport issued in the name of Harjinder Singh s/o Laxman Singh r/o Bholath (Kapurthala). He underwent arms training twice in August 1993 and June 1994 in a camp located in hilly terrain about 45 kms from Islamabad. Pandey Khan of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) received him at the airport and was incharge of the arms training imparted to Rattandeep Singh. Chaudhary Khalid Rana was a senior officer of the ISI and the main liaison man with the Pakistan-based Punjab militants. Rattandeep Singh remained in regular touch with Chaudhary Khalid Rana.
9. Rattandeep Singh was arrested by the police on May 9, 1996 while sneaking into India through the Samba Sector. In 1999 he escaped and masterminded the bomb blast at Sector 34, Chandigarh on June 30, 1999 and subsequently escaped to Pakistan. He again came to India via Nepal in April 2010 to carry out militant actions in Punjab. In May 2010, Rattandeep Singh alongwith his associates planted an IED(Improvised Explosive Device) in a car near Circuit House, Amritsar and thereafter managed to escape to Pakistan.

Chandigarh, September 18: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today constituted a joint monitoring committee to ensure timely implementation of lift irrigation schemes in the Kandi region of Rupnagar, Nawanshehar, Hoshiarpur and SAS Nagar (Mohali) districts.
A decision to this effect was taken by Mr. Badal while presiding over a high level meeting specially convened on the request of Member Parliament from Anandpur Sahib Prof. Prem Singh Chandumajra here at Chief Minister’s residence this morning.
Disclosing this here today a spokesperson of the CMO said that the committee would comprise Financial Commissioner Development, Secretary Irrigation and Secretary Power to finalize the modalities for the prompt implementation of lift irrigation project in the Kandi and mountainous region in order to mitigate the hardships of the people living there who were facing acute scarcity of irrigation water due to scanty rainfall there.
Responding to another issue of wild animals causing extensive damage to the standing crops in the Kandi region, the Chief Minister asked the Forest department to prepare a time bound action plan to save the people from this scourge. The Chief Minister also asked the Financial Commissioner Forests to study the feasibility of fencing around the fields to prevent the entry of wild animals/stray cattle. He also asked Prof. Chandumajra to pursue the case for seeking special funds to tackle the menace of wild animals from Centre on the pattern of assistance already given to Himachal Pradesh, adding he said that he would also personally take up this matter with the Ministry of Forests, GoI.

He asked the Tourism department to engage the services of reputed international consultants in tourism to develop water sports in this area.
The Chief Minister also gave a go ahead for the 4-laning of Banga-Garhshankar-Sri Anandpur Sahib Nawanshehar-Garhshankar roads to cope up with the heavy vehicular traffic especially in the season of fairs and festivals like Holla Mohalla in Anandpur Sahib and Navratras in Naina Devi.

To further tap the irrigation potential in the Kandi region, the Chief Minister also asked the Irrigation department to submit a comprehensive proposal for the construction of already identified 44 check dams in Hoshiarpur district so as to ensure there completion in a stipulated time schedule.
Referring to the hardships faced by the residents of Mohali, the Chief Minister also okayed the proposal mooted by Prof. Chandumajra to introduce the city bus service thereby linking Mohali with Chandigarh and Panchkula especially Nadha Sahib. Mr. Badal also asked the Chief Administrator GMADA to develop the village Madanpura for providing basic civic amenities to its residents besides constructing green belt. Mr. Badal also directed the GMADA to chalk out a detailed plan for the provision of basic civic amenities especially the roads in the newly carved out sector 76 to 80 on the priority adding he directed both the GMADA and Municipal Corporation to work out a joint strategy in this regard.
Meanwhile, the CA GMADA apprised the Chief Minister the development work of Rs.68 crore had been put on hold due to the pending case in the Supreme Court regarding the chunk of 102 acre of land in these sectors.
