Ferozepur, April 24: Today, Sunil Kumar Jakhar, candidate from Ferozepur Lok Sabha constituency visited the Bar Association, Ferozepur to plead his case for seeking the vote of Advocate’s fraternity.

Jakhar in his address exposed the government for misappropriation of crore of rupees grant received from the centre for Nirmal Gram Scheme for construction of free flush latrines. He pointed out that the flush latrines have not been constructed in his own constituency Jalalabad.

A letter issued to Surjit Singh of Arianwala in Jalalabad for providing this free facility at a cost of Rs.10985 during January 2011, was never constructed. He came to know only when letter at his residence was received by him and scam came on surface.

Jakhar said, it is not only in Jalalabad but there are number of villages where the modern latrines have not been constructed despite receipt of grant from centre by the government. Only Sukhbir Singh Badal and Sher Singh Ghubaya can give reply to this as to what happened to the grant of Rs.126 crore received during 2010-11.

Addressing the advocates and their assistants, Sunil Kumar Jakhar said, “I have come to collect your ‘vakalat nama’ to represent your case in Parliament. Since the vote is yours, please do apply your mind to see as to whether the person asking for vote is deserving or note, before giving me this authority. Otherwise there will be no difference between Akalis and me. They are seeking their votes on community basis and I may ask for the same by making you emotional.”

He also pointed out that grant has lapsed due to the negligence of the government which was earmarked for disposal of sullage water and solid waste in the villages and town to maintain clean and pollution free environment to save the people living there from infectious disease.

Attacking on Modi and Badal, about their double standard speaking, he said, the Badal should dare to say that the alliance in Punjab with BJP will be only if the problem of 25000 Punjab farmers in Gujarat, is solved. Only then, we could know as to how well-wisher is Badal to the farmers of Punjab in Gujarat.

Jakhar also assured to take up the matter about opening of Hussainiwala border in the Parliament which will help in normalizing the relations with Pakistan and improving the economy of the area.

Earlier, Parminder Singh Pinki, Congress MLA Ferozepur City, C.M.Munjal, Jagdeep Singh Kamboj, Gurnail Singh Brar, former MLA, Jatinder Pal Singh, also addressed the Bar members.

Chandigarh, April 24: The Punjab Congress today demanded immediate dismissal of two Cabinet Ministers Ajit Singh Kohar and Gulzar Singh Ranike and Chief Parliamentary Secretary Virsa Singh Valtoha following the disclosure of their alleged involvement and that of three other leaders in smuggling racket followed by a high level inquiry by a sitting judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
In a statement issued here today, party General Secretary and member of the campaign committee Rajanbir Singh said these allegations coming from former Additional Director General of Police (Intelligence) Shashi Kant just could not be rejected off hand as he had claimed that he had submitted the list of smugglers and those patronising them to Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal .
He said the issue at stake was not that Kant had political ambitions or the timing of his revelations as earlier also, he had raised this issue, particularly in relations to smuggling of drugs into jails in the state which also was a widespread racket.
Rajanbir said earlier, drug smuggler and former cop Jagdish Bhola had named revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia and now two more ministers and a CPS apart from two other MLAs and a political leaders had been named in this racket.
He said this is one government whose three ministers were under a cloud after their names having beenb surfaced in smuggling. These allegations were being levelled against the political leaders for a long time now. He said the Chief Minister must order a high level inquiry to bring out the truth and punish the guilty, to whichever party he belonged.
He said addiction had spread like epidemic in the during the last few years and what was at stake was the future of Punjab as those hooked to drugs was the younger generation. He said in case this situation was allowed to continue, it would ruin Punjab within no time.
Rajanbir stressed that none should be allowed to play with the future of Punjab. Apart from the easy availability of drugs, what had compounded the situation was the high incidence of unemployment. What was needed was a multipronged strategy to wean away the youth from this menace and engage them in productive process.
He said the state government just could not shift the blame for smuggling as what was being consumed by the addicts in Punjab were mainly the synthetic drugs manufactured within the state and not smuggled from across the border. It was mainly heroine which was coming from Pakistan and as such, what was required was strong preventive steps.

“Amritsar is the best place to learn civilised human language”: Majithia to Amarinder

Dr Manmohan Singh neglected Amritsar during his decade long tenure: Majithia

By Babushahi Bureau

Amritsar, April 24 : The Punjab Revenue Minister Mr Bikram Singh Majithia said here today that Amritsar had been singled out for ingratitude by the Congress party and its governments at the center and in Punjab, as the city and the district had the unique distinction of suffering “Prime Ministerial Neglect” from its own son, Dr. Manmohan Singh, and from its self-proclaimed grand half-cousin, former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.

Amritsar, April 24 : The Punjab Revenue Minister Mr Bikram Singh Majithia said here today that Amritsar had been singled out for ingratitude by the Congress party and its governments at the center and in Punjab, as the city and the district had the unique distinction of suffering “Prime Ministerial Neglect” from its own son, Dr. Manmohan Singh, and from its self-proclaimed grand half-cousin, former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.
Majithia said, “Amritsar is the home town of the only Sikh to become the Prime Minister of this country, Dr. Manmohan Singh. And now a former Chief Minister is laying a controversial claim to the legacy of his lineage from this sacred city. But will anyone in the Congress please point out even a single major project by which Dr. Singh will be remembered by the people here?” Mr Majithia asked.
“This most sacred place of the Sikhs and one of the holiest havens for the entire mankind was simply given an “over-flight” by the Prime Minister as he carried grants to other places. It was as if he felt guilty at being a Punjabi and remained apologetic about it throughout his career as PM. His aircraft would simply refuse to land in Amritsar, leaving his birth-place and its other poor sons and daughters simply looking skywards and watching their indifferent brother’s plane disappear towards the South or the East. The city was never on his itinerary when it came to development projects,” said Mr Majithia.

The Prime Minister flew over Amritsar on the way to places as far as Vidharbha, UP, Maharashtra, Kerala, Andhra with to distribute his liberal bounty ranging from Rs. 50,000 crore to Rs. 1.75 lakh crore, not a single rupee was spent on Amritsar. “The people of the state, and especially of this region kept hoping for an economic package for border areas and one at par with concessions given to our neighboring states. The only thing Dr Singh did was to keep extending the concessions to our neighbors while not offering a penny to his home state, said Majithia.
“The only ‘gift’ that Amritsar ever got from any Congress government or Prime Minister was the tragic Operation Bluestar, which Captain Singh first pretended to oppose but now justifies. What an irony that Captain Singh has chosen the sacred land of Amritsar to defend both Jagdish Tytler and Operation Bluestar,” said Mr Majithia.
Ironically, however, said Mr Majithia, “it was here, at Darbar Sahib, that the present Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal organized an Akhand Path to pray for good health of the PM when he was to undergo heart surgery. Dr. Singh did not come even for thanksgiving in return.
The Revenue Minister also had a dig at Captain Amarinder Singh and asked him to
emerge from ‘his self-created animal kingdom, abandon his howling jungle habits and pick up the language of civilized human society .’ “Amritsar is the best place to learn humility, human language and other civilized skills and values,” said Mr Majithia, referring to Captain Singh’s use of offensive and ungentlemanly descriptions for his opponents.
The Minister in his statement maintained that elections were a matter of serious and deep commitment and it needed more than mere animal instinct to address issues concerning development of the state and welfare of the people.

Coming down heavily at As for Captain Singh, the Revenue Minister said, “As for the Maharaja of Mega Falsehoods, the less said the better. If he ever visited this city as Chief Minister, it was always for things which made news for all the wrong reasons. Not a single brick was ever laid towards the development of this sacred town by either Dr. Manmohan Singh as Prime Minister or by Captain Amarinder
Singh as Chief Minister.” ....

Amritsar, April 24: In order to spread its message and create awareness amongst the masses, the Dal Khalsa has decided to hold Seminar on 'Sikh Nation and Indian Elections-an analysis' on April 27 at Hoshiarpur.
Party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said every election puts struggling nations and their representative bodies in a fix as they debate their participation mindful of the pitfalls that such elections have inbuilt in them.
He said theirs being a revolutionary political party of the Sikhs, has decided to approach this issue head long.
He said the dichotomy of the Sikh polity is pronounced –protesting, ruing, yearning, cribbing and complaining yet participating in electoral politics of the country. He said the panthic representatives would hotly debate and discuss this predicament at a seminar to settle the issue. He said the speakers would analyze the loses and achievements of Sikhs as a community while participating in the election process since 1952.
He said the dilemma of struggling nations and peoples is palpable in Kashmir, but dormant in Punjab and the North-east. Despite all misgivings and utterances of the present Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal that, “Delhi has always cheated and ignored Punjab” and the fact that since last 3 years, the elected Sikh body –the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has been put on hold by the executive and the judiciary, the Sikhs of Punjab are into throes of politicking and electioneering.
He lashed out at both main national parties Congress and BJP for not addressing the fundamental questions and the core concerns of the Sikhs. "Akalis have become subservient to the Hindutva force, causing serious damage to the once Sikh party".
It has always been a casual and convenient approach to participate in elections, notwithstanding the loss to the collective aspirations of the Sikh Nation”, he said.....

Chandigarh, April 24 : Shiromani Akali Dal General Secretary Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal today called upon the Punjab government to order a high level inquiry into the confessions made by former Punjab DGP Shashi Kant that he tampered with official records and files pertaining to cases of huge recoveries of drugs. The entire record of the conduct of this officer, including reports of Shashi Kant possessing assets far out of proportion to his known sources of income, now needs to be probed in the light of this sensational confession.
Grewal also challenged Shashi Kant to an open public debate on the handling of war on drugs in the state.
“This is a most damning confession ever made by an officer of his rank and seniority. It virtually amounts to pleading guilty but seeking immunity in the name of mitigating circumstances. He has admitted that he committed a grave crime but maintained, as an excuse, that he did so under political pressure. No professionally competent and honest officer would ever do such a thing under any pressure. It looks like an open-and-shut case of an officer trapped in his own misdeeds and now trying to wriggle out by putting the blame on his seniors and bosses. This does n’t wash in the eyes of law or morality, “ said Mr Grewal.

“ A senior former officer has gone on record admitting that he deliberately mishandled a critical case, destroyed evidence and tampered with official records, including police files. These are grave offences, no matter what provocation. No self respecting officer in his senses would ever stoop to such things. But since Mr Shashi Kant confesses to this crime, it needs to be followed up . The possibility of his throwing big political names merely as a means to camouflage the truth and to provide himself the protective layer of “benefit of doubt” needs to be seriously and thoroughly probed, said Mr Grewal.

The inquiry should be ordered immediately after the electoral process in the state is completed,” said Grewal in a statement here today.

”There are strong indications that Mr Shashi Kant knows that he is in trouble over his questionable conduct as an officer, and is therefore preparing alibis by dragging in the names of others, including senior police officers and politicians. As a seasoned police officer, he must know which direction the needle of suspicion points, and he could be trying to change that direction by creating a political confusion around the case,” said the SAD General Secretary.

Mr Grewal said that there is need to probe if the entire hue and cry being raised by Mr Shashi Kant was a calculated move to mislead and misdirect the course of investigations in drug smuggling cases and weaken the on-going war on drugs which has reached a very crucial stage,” said Mr Grewal.....

Bathinda, April 24 : Sukhbir Singh Badal, President Shiromani Akali Dal and Deputy Chief Minister Punjab today take the election campaign of his wife and SAD-BJP candidate from Bathinda constituency on the fast track. Sukhbir’s whirlwind tour of more than dozen villages of Bathinda constituency today raised the election heat to the peak level.
A day before NDA’s prime ministerial candidate Narinder Modi’s rally here, Badal today addressed public meetings in the villages Jatana Khurd, Ghuduwala, Sahnewali, Lalli Wali (Lalian Wali), Dasodia, Bhalike, Rama Nandi, Nangal Kalan, Channewala, Heer Ke, Chottian, Ali Ke and Aadam Ke of Bathinda constituency to appeal the voters in the favour of Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal.
During these rallies Badal recalled the initiative taken by SAD-BJP government and especially by Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal for the development of the area and appealed the voters to vote for performance. The gatherings in all these meetings responded enthusiastically to all the development initiatives counted by Badal by raising the slogans of ‘Shiromani Akali Dal Zindabad’, ‘Bibi Harsimrat Zindabad’ and ‘Badal Sahib Zindabad’. They also raised the slogans of ‘Ab ki baar Modi sarkar’.
Focusing on the expected loss to the farmers because of untimely rains in this harvesting season while addressing these rallies, Badal promised that NDA government would introduce comprehensive crop insurance to secure the farmers against these unforeseen losses. He also promised that NDA would provide agricultural loans at cheaper rates of interest. Badal said that there was multifold increase in the cost of production because of anti farmer policies of congress led UPA government. He assured that NDA would reverse this phenomenon besides ensuring that farmers should receive MSP as per the Swaminthan Formula, which includes assured markets at MSP 50% above cost of production for farmers produce.
Appealing the youth to vote for SAD-BJP for better future of Punjab, Badal said that Modi-Badal-Jaitly relationship would ensure an economic package for Punjab with cent per cent waiver of Central excise and Income Tax to bring an industrial revolution in the state. He promised that once voted to power at centre NDA would ensure development of Manufacturing, Textiles, IT and tourism sector in the state to create abundant employment opportunities for the youth. He said that SAD-BJP government has done a marvelous job in promoting sports in the state and it would bring required funds from the NDA government.
Meanwhile, a number of local party leaders, party workers and common people assured Badal that this time a victory with more than 1 Lakh votes would not satisfy them and they wanted to witness that Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal registered victory with the maximum margin in India. The another interesting thing one could witness during Badal’s today’s campaign was that not only the massive gatherings in the rallies but the people who were working in the fields or homes because of the ongoing harvesting season were seen welcoming the cavalcade of Badal by waving their hands and raising slogans.....

Bathinda, April 24: Bathinda Member Parliament Harsinrat Kaur Badal said an NDA government at the Centre was necessary for the growth and development of the state.
While addressing impressive election meetings in villages of Talwandi Sabo assembly segment on Thursday, Mrs. Harsimrat strongly criticised the UPA government for "deliberately discriminating" against opposition-ruled states in terms of disbursement of grants, thus "stalling development". She said that the strong anti UPA government wave indicated that Congress would be decimated in the country in the near future.
Mrs. Harsimrat promised with her constituents to develop her Bathinda constituency ten times more after BJP leader Narendra Modi comes to power at center. She also appealed the public to vote for SAD-BJP ensuring victory at all thirteen Lok Sabha seats in Punjab. Appealing people to reach Bathinda on Friday to attend Shri Narindera Modi's rally at Bathinda, she said the rally would further strengthen SAD-BJP wave and alliance would sweep in all the 13 seats of the state.
“Bathinda would be developed ten times more after Narendra Modi becomes Prime Minister of India. I want to see my constituency Bathinda as a role model of the country on lines of development. Besides giving good governance the SAD-BJP government in Punjab had developed Bathinda a lot in last few years while a number of projects have been laid,” Harsimrat said.
Castigating the Congress for discriminating with Punjab Harsimrat also criticized the Sikh Prime Minister for his failure to give Punjab a single project and said, “Manmohan Singh being a Sikh Prime Minister failed to give any single big project to Punjab in ten years regime of congress that had only brought corruption, inflation and unemployment to the country. The countrymen are waiting for the poll day to through out the corrupt congress leaders out of parliament,” she added.
Criticizing her rival Manpreet Badal she said that real face of Manpreet Badal who was in league with Congress has been exposed before the public. “Manpreet during his regime as Finance Minister always forced the SAD-BJP government to stop the welfare schemes being given to poor and even now he had complained to Election commission of India and got stopped the atta-dal scheme meant for the poor,”.|
Accompanied by Talwandi Sabo MLA, Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu, she addressed the impressive election meetings at Singo, Behman Kaur Singh, Behman Jassa Singh, Gurusar Jagga, Sangat Khurad, Teona Pujarian, Tangrali, Jogewala and Kamalu village of Talwandi Sabo assembly segment.....

New Delhi, April 24: A joint team of Bihar and Jharkhand police raided the house of Bihar BJP leader Giriraj Singh, armed with a court order, on Friday to arrest him for his alleged hate statements but could not find him.
Media reports that "A team of Bokaro police and Patna police raided Giriraj Singh's house around 5 AM in the morning to arrest him on the direction of a Bokaro court, which had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against him but Singh was not found in the house," City Superintendent of Police Jaykant told today.
Jharkhand police is in town and is waiting to apprehend Singh with the assistance of the Patna team, he said.
The Jharkhand police team said they would try to arrest him before he surrenders in court and if Singh continued to elude they would pray to the court for attaching his property.
Singh had on Wednesday said he will surrender before the court on Thursday but did not say whether he would do so in Jharkhand or Bihar. Efforts to contact Singh failed.

His cell phone was found switched off and his landline was not operational. When a group of media persons reached Singh's home and asked his kin about his whereabouts, they said he was in the city but refused to divulge the location.

Three FIRs - two at Deogarh and Bokaro in Jharkhand and one in Patna - were lodged against him at the behest of the Election Commission, which has barred him from campaigning in the two states in the wake of his 18th April controversial remarks.

He had said that those opposing BJP PM nominee Narendra Modi should go to Pakistan, and that the Centre was giving subsidy for export of beef while taxing those who reared cows.

The third FIR was lodged at the Airport police station in Patna three days ago for repeating the same remarks publicly on 20th April.

Singh is contesting from Nawada Lok Sabha seat on a BJP ticket. Voting was held in Nawada on 10th April.

Batala/Gurdaspur, April 24: The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Partap Singh Bajwa, today proposed that the sacred Kartarpur Sahib shrine situated across Ravi in Pakistan opposite Dera Baba Nanak of Gurdaspur District should be exchanged with some other Indian territory.

Batala/Gurdaspur, April 24: The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Partap Singh Bajwa, today proposed that the sacred Kartarpur Sahib shrine situated across Ravi in Pakistan opposite Dera Baba Nanak of Gurdaspur District should be exchanged with some other Indian territory.
He said for a long time, the Sikh devotees had been longing for free access to this shrine where the founder of the Sikh faith, Guru Nanak Dev, spent last years of his entire life. Presently, the devotees pay their obeisance to the shrine from this side of the river where a special platform has been erected. He said the devotees had been demanding free access to the shrine via a corridor so that they don’t have to go through visa formalities.

The PPCC chief said he had took up this issue with Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh in May, 2012 and suggested that this territory be exchanged with some Indian territory which is across Ravi in the same sector. He said the people living in such pockets were facing a lot of hardships as the only means to connect with the mainland was by boats. This area remains cut off from India during monsoons. Not only that. Even basic facilities were lacking in the absence of a direct
connect. He said Dr. Manmohan Singh was not averse to this proposal in principle.
He said there was a precedent for such exchange of territories after partition. He said the Hussainiwala area across Satluj where the samadhis of martyrs Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sujkhdev were located had been transferred to Pakistan. It was only years later in 1962 that this territory was handed over by Pakistan to India.
He pointed recently, a similar decision to exchange certain pockets across Bengal Bangladesh border had been arrived at but could not be implemented due to opposition from Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerji.
He said however, the situation in Punjab was different as everybody was in favour of free access to the Kartarpur Sahib shrine which was located just across the border on the other bank of Ravi. Once the two countries arrived at such a decision, there would not be any hurdle from the state government. River Ravi is the border in this part.
However, Bajwa said, the jingoistic rhetoric being resorted to by the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, Mr. Narendra Modi, on the issue of relations with the neighbouring countries, might pose the biggest hurdle in case this divisive leader came into power. He said the people in Punjab in general and the border areas in particular were desirous of peace as in case of war, they suffer the most going by the past experience. Moreover, a dignified relationship with Pakistan could facilitate free trade across border which would provide a big boost to the economy of this land-locked border state which presently was not attracting big ticket investment.
He said such a step would also give a quantum jump to the backward economy of Gurdaspur as the only industrial town of Batalain this district had already turned into a ghost town with several hundred industrial units having been closed down during the last few years due to the apathetic attitude of the Akali Dal-BJP government headed by Parkash Singh Badal.
He said his opponent from the BJP in the Lok Sabha election, Vinod
Khanna, had been promising people to develop Gurdaspur and Pathankot as a tourist hub without coming up with any concrete proposal. He said here was a concrete proposal which, apart from the aspirations of the devotees, would act as a catalyst to boost the economy of this region.

respected sir, i was on your neighbor seat yesterday instead of 6 Ps, m also agree with yor point of advertisement and pornography which pollute young minds. but i also want to share you that in each and every article related to women issues the first line is "women is half of the world population" but only .5 to 1 per cent of glamour dolls pretend to show the image of women and people are ready to accept. it is the issue of deterioration of dignity of women in the society. there is a ad on whisky in which by each and every sip of whisly the top of women started disappear and the slogan is "kujh bhi ho skta hai" . similarly movies like grand masti which passed by censor are also create danger in the society related to cultural and value terams. there is need to finish gender gap in the society,. boys and girls look each other as alliens as they do not understand opposite sex and so they attracted. from the begining in the school, there create rows of boys and girls seprately. if we do not understand opposite sex we will not respect them, there is need to reduce this .
