FEROZEPUR, November 1: After Ludhiana, several block presidents and other office bearers of the Congress party from here today sought the removal of the Punjab Congress president Partap Singh Bajwa saying he had pushed the party into a “virtual civil war” with one group of the party fighting against another all over the state.

The signatories to the “remove Bajwa” signature campaign include Zira Congress block president Ravikant Jain, vice president Karamjit Singh, Makhu block president Nachhattar Singh, Mudaki block president Kulwant Rai Kataria, former president Ashok Kathuria, PCC member Harpeet Singh Hero, DCC vice president Harish Jain, former general secretary SK Passi, former PCC secretaries Narinder Singh and Jasbir Singh Bhullar and former Zira Market Committee chairman Gurmeet Singh Shera.

In a letter to Congress President Ms Sonia Gandhi, the Congress leaders sought urgent replacement of Bajwa saying, he had not only pushed the party towards a civil war, but had failed to provide strong, effective and successful leadership to the party.

They said, he has surrounded himself by his family with his brother Fateh Jang Bajwa on the one side and wife Charanjit Kaur Bajwa on the other. “The PCC has been turned into a close run family business of the Bajwas with the result genuine and hardworking leaders and workers are ignored and overlooked”, they said, adding if anybody disagrees he is slapped with the show cause notices at the behest of the PCC president.

“The way the PCC disciplinary committee has started slapping notices of leaders and workers only reflects poorly on the PCC president that he has to wield the stick to stay in office”, they pointed out, adding, a PCC president should unite and lead and not use the stick of disciplinary action for everyone who raises a genuine voice in party’s interest.

While speaking to this correspondent on phone, he declined to name any one to substitute Bajwa. He, however said, it is for the High Command to nominate any other President who could take all party workers with him and have the capacity to give a major fight to Akali and BJP.

All development projects in Ferozepur still swinging

Despite tall claims of Govt. Ferozepur still getting step-motherly treatment

Ferozepur, November 1 : Even after more than six decades of Independence of India, Ferozepur being a district and divisional headquarters is lacking various development projects.
Despite tall claims of removing the word - ‘backward’ - attached with this border town by the successive central and state governments, Ferozepur and no dearth of funds to ensure the facilitation of development works in the state, is still getting a step-motherly treatment.
All the projects for which either the foundation stones were laid or proposal under consideration with the Centre and State governments - opening of Hussainiwala border, setting up of domestic airport, PGI Satellite Centre, Shifting of Central Jail, starting of Govt. College , Astro-turf stadium, Commissioner of Fzr-Chandigarh – are hanging fire.
The Hussainiwala-Lahore border was closed after 1971 India-Pakistan war and the residents hope had brightened when Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif attended the Modi’s swearing-in-ceremony. This project too has become a victim of false promises by the political leaders.
According to Airport Authority of India (AAI), there is no plan at the moment to set up an airport in Ferozepur. It may mentioned that in June 2013, a team of the AAI led by Narendra Mukhija, Joint General Manager (Engieering) had visited the border town to assess the feasibility of setting up a low-cost airport. In fact, the then UPA Government had decided to set up airports in Ferozepur, Jalandhar, Patiala and Ludhiana in Punjab.
Regarding PGI Satellite Centre, was emphasized for its set up for health facility in this border town, by a team of doctors from Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER). The land for the project is yet to be finalized. Once the Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal bad given the consent to built the satellite centre on 16 acres of land near the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) but the staff and students too have objected to shifting of ITI to some other place which is likely to cost too much besides completion of technical formalities for awarding the diploma certificates.
The shifting of central jail on Ferozepur-Fazilka road near Khai Pheme Ki on the outskirts of the town stands approved over 44 acres plot identified but still to get clearance for procedural formalities. The idea behind shifting of jail is to en-cash 60 acres prime land situated in the heart of the city.
Though the work on Government College at village Mohkam Khan Wala over a land of 12 acres donated by the Panchayat has started but the work is too slow and it is likely to consume another academic session depriving then poor and economically from getting higher education.
The work on Astro Turf – Hockey Stadium, 10 crore projects, for which the foundation stone was laid on February 14, well before the elections, is yet to start. It’s early functioning could produce more sportspersons on account of availability of sports facilities.
The train between Ferozpeur-Chandigarh which was once chugged off on trial basis was withdrawn. It is being taken as a big conspiracy to help business interests of a big political party running the transport system which will make the common man suffer. All the political parties to get its credit are giving different statements to torpedo each others' claim. Now the youth congress workers with support from various local NGOs are sitting on dharna till its restoration. Rather, Ferozepur one of the oldest and largest division of railways is being bifurcated for creating new Jammu Division
Merely laying the foundation stone would not suffice, the completion of projects is more important, said President of leading NGO Coordination Committee, Inder Singh Gogia.

Chandigarh, November 1: The ShiromaniAkali Dal today lashed out at the
former Union Minister and Congress legislator from Patiala, Mrs
Prenteet Kaur over the sensational disclosures in a section of press
of her secret accounts in foreign banks and demanded strictest
possible action against her and other under the relevant provisions of
the law.
"The cat is now out of the bag. Not only has a former Union Minister
been found lying in full view of the public and international media,
but it has also been established that the Congress leaders joined
hands with the global financial underworld to siphon off into their
shady personal foreign accounts precious fiscal resources of the
country meant the poor," said SAD Secretary General Sukhdev Singh
Dhindsa, Senior Vice President Ranjit Singh Brahampura and General
Secretary Balwinder Singh Bhunderin a statement here today.
The Akali leaders said that Mrs. Preneet Kaur's case was a not a
one-off incident and it was merely" the tip of the iceberg." The SAD
asked the government of India to probethe matter vigorously and expose
the entire unholy nexus of leaders belonging to the Congress party
with international mafia.
Mr. Dhindsa, Mr Brahamapura and Mr Bhunder said, "It is
shocking that a person holding a highly sensitive and responsible
position such as minister of state for external affairs played a fraud
with her country by hiding vital information about her financial
assets from the Government of India. As minister of state for external
affairs, she was expected to be a role model and to act as a true
ambassador for her country. But she made a laughing stock of herself
and of her country in world capitals, said the Akali leaders."
The Akali leaders said that the trail of crime with respect to black
money in foreign banks leads right up to the Congress headquarters and
to the residences of their top leaders in the party's High Command.
The guilty must be punished and money lying in foreign banks must be
brought back to be spent on the poor and the needy in the country.
The SAD leaders said that the magnitude of black money taken out of
India through illegitimate means was reportedly large enough to meet
the full development expenses of the country for several decades. The
Indian economy had failed to grow at the expected rate only because
the Congress leaders had set up a parallel economy through black money
,kept in foreign banks.
They said that besides this, Ms Preneet Kaur was expected not only to
safeguard the strategic and financial interests of the people not
indulging in any underhand financial deals with foreign financial and
banking institutions but also to help her government in securing the
relevant information against offenders in this regard. But how could
she ask the other countries for such information where own hands were
not clean?....

New Delhi, November 1-
Describing the genocide of Sikhs in 1984 as "Fourth Holocaust (Ghallughara), the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today said that the upcoming November 1984 Sikh carnage memorial being built by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) would preserve the history of this barbaric incident for generations to come.
Addressing the gathering before performing the ground breaking ceremony to start the construction work of this memorial at Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib here today, the Chief Minister, accompanied by Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal and Union Minister Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal, said that the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) would continue its struggle relentlessly to get each guilty involved in this heinous genocide to the book. He said that the Sikhs have faced four major holocausts during the entire Sikh history out of which two big and small holocausts was a result of the tyranny of the Mughal rule. However, he said that it was unimaginable that in free India the own government of the country would unleash terror on them by two holocausts one during operation Blue Star in Sri Harimandir Sahib and second after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi, in which nearly 5000 innocents Sikhs were killed alone in Delhi besides nearly 10000 across the country.
The Chief Minister said that this would memorial was a tribute to the memory of martyrs and a salute to the bravery of other victims, who fell prey to the perpetrators of this heinous crime. Mr. Badal said that the nations which forget their history were forgotten by history adding that this memorial would serve as a reminder to the rulers of the future that uncivilized deeds were always condemned by society. Mr. Badal said that the Memorial was being constructed with “humility in our hearts and prayers on our lips for peace and communal harmony, especially in Punjab.
The Chief Minister said that our real tribute to the martyrs was to preserve peace and communal harmony in the country as these brave Sikhs lost their lives and beloved ones the sole bread winners in several families only because peace and communal harmony was disturbed by Congress conspiracies. He said that today was a very historic day not only for the Khalsa Panth but for the entire country and for all civilized people in the world adding that the entire gathering must utilize this platform to pray together for ever lasting peace and communal harmony in the country.
Recalling the 1984 Sikh carnage, the Chief Minister bemoaned that the most shocking part of this conspiracy was that it happened in national capital, Delhi and other parts of the country. He said that though the official figures deliberately down-played number of victims, but in fact more than 10,000 innocent and unarmed Sikh elderly men, women and children were killed in the conspiracy hatched by the Congress leaders under the party's policy of “Khoon ka Badla Khoon”. Mr. Badal said that these slogans were heard on the national television on October 31 and November 1, 1984.
The Chief Minister said that this bloodbath was not a communal riot but a massacre carried out by gangs or killers, looters, arsonists and rapists belonging to the Congress party. He said that senior leaders of the Congress party, including HKL Bhagat, Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler and others actually sponsored this massacre adding that responsible and respected independent witnesses saw Congress leaders leading the gangs of killers and looters into Sikh localities to carry out the country’s most shameful massacre. Mr. Badal said that the executors of this crime left no stone unturned in harming the Sikhs at the behest of the then Congress government.
The Chief Minister further said that several leading legal luminaries, ex-judges, senior editors, human rights and civil liberties activities and organizations have indicted the Congress and its leaders for this crime adding that even Commissions of Inquiry which probed the massacre reached the same conclusion that leaders of the Congress party at the highest level were responsible for this heinous crime against humanity. Mr. Badal lamented that even after passing of 30 years the guilty of the massacre still freely roam the streets of the capital and to rub salt into wounds of Sikhs many of these leaders were rewarded with high offices in the corridors of power while other were given Congress tickets for the Parliament and Cabinet berths, for the murders, lootings, arson and molestation, to be removed only under public pressure.
The Chief Minister further said that it was grave injustice with the victims that for more than three decades justice has been denied to them. He said that even where some action was initiated under public pressure, progress has been deliberately slow and complaints have been pending without any FIRs being registered. Mr. Badal said that political and official patronage has been given to attempts to either weaken or completely sabotage and abandon action where FIRs were registered.
Reiterating the demand of SAD-BJP alliance for strictest possible action against the guilty and relief to the victims of the massacre, the Chief Minister sought a comprehensive relief package for the riot victims adding that Union government must set up a Commission of Inquiry, headed by a Supreme Court judge to inquire the entire conspiracy including official and political patronage behind the massacre in a time bound manner. He further said that the Commission should submit its report within six months. Likewise, Mr. Badal said that special Dedicated Courts should be set up to expedite the delivery of justice where FIRs have been registered and challans presented.
The Chief Minister further said that all closed cases should be re-investigated and thereafter challans be presented before the Special Dedicated Courts adding that all complaints on which no action has been taken be investigated and challans be presented to the Special Dedicated Courts.
Speaking on the occasion, the Deputy Chief Minister and President of SAD Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal said that even a child of ten years or an elder of 80 years was very well conversant with this barbaric act in which thousands of innocent Sikhs were butchered at the behest of Congress government. In this light, he said that there was hardly any need to constitute any SIT to identify the culprits involved in this holocaust rather it was crystal clear that the Congress leaders like Bhagat, Tytler and Sajjan Kumar were openly instigating the mob to take a toll of death on Sikhs. Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal said that unfortunately even the International Human Rights organizations had failed to realize the agony of the Sikhs and their families even after passing of more than three decades.
The Deputy Chief Minister pointed out that the cases of ‘war crimes’ were even heard by the United Nations after period of 50-60 years and the guilty were tried but in this case of genocide nothing was done so far to assuage the tormented Sikh psyche. He said that SAD had been waging a relentless battle since three decades to seek justice from the successive Union governments but at last we were now hopeful of some tangible results in the near future. Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal said, “A positive beginning has been made by the NDA government by giving Financial assistance of Rs 5 lakh to each of the victim of this carnage but this can never compensate the enormous loss suffered by the beleaguered families who lost their kith and kin. These hapless families can only get a bit of consolation only if the culprits of this grave crime are convicted by the law of the land”.
The Deputy Chief Minister said that none would succeed in their nefarious designs to divide and destabilize Sikhs, which was evident from the results of Haryana assembly elections where Congress party finished at third slot for their suicidal attempt to dilute the Sikh power by constituting separate Gurdwara Management Committee for the state. He said that the Chief architect of this conspiracy- Mr. HS Chatha was badly rejected by the Sikhs in Haryana at hustings, where he could hardly manage to save his security deposits from forfeiture.
In his address, the President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Committee Mr. Manjit Singh GK said that this memorial was an attempt to pay homage to the martyrs and victims of 1984 Sikh carnage. He said that the previous Congress led UPA government had even halted the DSGMC to construct this memorial and how one could expect of them to do justice with Sikhs as far as the question of punishing the guilty was concerned.
Prominent amongst other who attended the function included Jathedar Sri Akal Takht Sahib Giani Gurbachan Singh, Jathedar Sri Keshgarh Sahib Giani Mal Singh and Jathedar Takht Sri Patna Sahib Giani Iqbal Singh, Head of Damdami Taksal Baba Harnam Singh, Lok Sabha MP Mrs. Meenakshi Lekhi, Delhi BJP Chief Mr. Satish Upadhay, former MPs Mr. Tarlochan Singh and Mrs. Jaya Jaitely, MLAs Delhi Mr. Majinder Singh Sirsa and Mr. Jatinder Singh Shunty besides several religious and political leaders. ....

Amritsar, Nov 01.2014 : AISSF President Karnail Singh Peermohammad, Bibi Jagdish Kaur along with 50 people have been rounded up by the police here today from the city Bus Stand when they were attempting to prevent State Transport buses to hit on roads.

All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) and Sikh Students Federation Mehta (SSF) gave a call for ‘Punjab Bandh” on November 1st.

Bandh call was given keeping in view anti Sikh riots occurred in Novemebr 1st 1984, thirty years back in the national capital of Delhi which was allegedly Congress party was behind the Genocide of Sikhs.


Bibi Jagdish Kaur who was detained by police in Police station Maqboolpura, had lost her five family members including her husband and children during anti Sikh riots in November 1984, said Peermohammad.

Peermohammad claimed that their more than 50 activists were also detained by police in Tarn Taran district today.

Taking a strong exception to the arrests of AISSF President Karnail Singh Peermohammad and Bibi Jagdish Kaur by the Badal government, “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ) a US based human rights group gave a call to boycott the members of the SAD (Badal) during their planned visits to North America and European Union.

“The arbitrary arrests of victims who planned to highlight the denial of justice and impunity to those who organized 1984 killing of Sikhs has exposed the SAD (Badal) which have been just using the issue of Sikh genocide to garner votes during elections. The Badal government’s action on 30th year of Sikh Genocide clearly defines why justice has eluded the 1984 victims for the last thirty years” stated attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, Legal Advisor, SFJ.


Today is the 30th year of Sikh Genocide organized and orchestrated by the ruling party of that time. We have given the call for “Punjab Bandh” to highlight the denial of justice to 1984 Genocide Victims and impunity to those who perpetrated genocidal violence against the Sikh community, said Peermohammad.


Peermohammad claimed that more than eighty percent Bandh was observed in the Amritsar district.

Sukhbir worries :Despite so much development still Bathinda citizens vote against Akalis

Why people of Bathinda City don't vote for SAD ?-a question haunting like a puzzle for Badals

Sukhbir anxious & alert due to emergent ambitions of the state BJP

BJP is highly motivated after winning Haryana elections

Bathinda: November 1: The SAD President & Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal was seen in anxious frame of mind on Friday during the occasion of the inauguration of the railway over bridge on ring road II project in Bathinda.

Bathinda: November 1: The SAD President & Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal was seen in anxious frame of mind on Friday during the occasion of the inauguration of the railway over bridge on ring road II project in Bathinda. He was accompanied by Bikram Singh Majithia Cabinet Minister for Revenue & Public Relations who personally drove the SUV of Sukhbir Badal from field hostel to the venue of the inauguration of ring road II and ROB. Sukhbir was behind the schedule by two hours.

The tenor of the speech of Sukhbir Badal was bit different from his style. He started his speech by complaining to the people entitled to vote that “We have done lot of work for the development of the Bathinda city. During the last seven years the city has witness unparalleled and record development in all spheres but still the electorate of the city has not accepted us”. He was speaking in reference of hefty margin of votes polled against SAD candidate during the recent Lok Sabha election. “So far I could not find out the reasons what the electorate needs more than the development agenda” said Sukhbir Singh Badal while addressing the gathering of people.

At the end of his ten minute speech Sukhbir Badal said “Bathinda is our home, we have always been at the disposal of the people of this constituency. I tell you when this government will complete its term and some new government come into being you will see and feel the difference, no other Chief Minister will visit this area”. “So I appeal you to support us and strengthen the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in the near future” added Sukhbir while concluding his speech.

Political observers feel the SAD leadership is likely to change its strategy in the coming days as the BJP is going to adopt and take strong posture on various issues related to the functioning of the state government. It is almost understood that BJP is planning to fight the next state assembly election on its own strength. They have already started working on this agenda. The way the followers of the Sirsa based Dera Sacha Sauda openly voted for the BJP in Haryana and a long meeting held by RSS head Mohan Bhagwat with the head of Dera Beas Gurinder Singh Dhillon few months ago, indicates lull before the storm. The state BJP is seen highly motivated and encouraged after the formation of the BJP government in the neighbouring state of Haryana. SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal will have to face a big political test in the coming days.

New Delhi , October 31: After announcing financial compensation for the 1984 riot victim families, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today expressed his anguish and pain for killing of thousands Sikhs during November , 1984.He said the anti-Sikh riots in the aftermath of Indira Gandhi's assassination were like a "dagger that pierced through India's chest." Mr. Modi said that it was an attack on the whole nation and was against the spirit of national unity.

Speaking at "Run for Unity" to mark Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's birth anniversary here today Modi referred to the massacre of Sikh and said , "Our own people were murdered, the attack was not on a particular community but on the entire nation. It was like a dagger pierced through India's chest."

It may be recalled that more than 3,000 Sikhs, were killed after then prime minister Indira Gandhi was shot dead by her own Sikh bodyguards at Delhi on October 31,1984.It has been alleged that the targeted killing of Sikhs was very well planned and patronized by the congress regime.Modi Govt announced Rs 5 lakh each to the kins of 3325 persona killed during these riots.

PM did not go to shaktisthal to pay homage to late Indira but he remembered Mrs Gandhi through his tweet ."It is unfortunate that on the birth anniversary of the man who dedicated his life in uniting the country, a tragic incident took place 30 years ago that shook the country and left it deeply scarred," PM Modi said.

New Delhi, October 31: A protest march was held today at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi under the Presidentship of Jathedar Kuldip Singh Bhogal, All India Riot Victims Relief Committee, New Delhi along with thousands of All India Riot Victims wearing black apparels held a protest march from Gurdwara Bangla Sahib New Delhi, to the residence of Shri Narender Modi, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. Jathedar Avtar Singh Hit, Jathedar Kuldip Singh Bhogal,Mohkam Singh Kanpur, Jaswinder Singh Mohali went to the house of Prime Minister Shri Modi and submitted the memorandum. Manjit Singh G.K., President, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee Senior Vice President Ravinder Singh Khurana, General Secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa and Committee Members Ravail Singh Moti Nagar, Darshan Singh Pandav Nagar, Captain Inderpreet Singh and Akali Leaders Kuldip Singh Bindra, Amarjit Singh Tihar and Rajinder Singh Moti Bagh also took part in the protest march.
It is now more than thirty years have passed since Sikhs were subjected to genocidal violence in India in the year 1984. It could be termed as a political tragedy subjugating Sikh nation in India that it’s politicians were still urging Indian rulers to form probe panels though eleven such panels have already failed to yield any results. Now that the new Government have come in power and a ray of hope has now come, the problems of riot victims families shall be heard by meeting with their representatives immediately. It is proposed that a Special Investigating Team (SIT) should be set up under the Chairmanship of a Supreme Court Judge. This SIT should investigate the countless cases of 1984 Sikh Genocide and ensure that the accused are brought to book and punished.
. As per the reports of Human Rights Group about 4000 Sikhs were killed in Delhi alone. The official figure of Sikhs killed in Delhi is 2733. About 7000 Sikhs have been killed all over India as per the reports of the Human Rights Group. No official figure has been compiled for whole of India. About 2000 families lost the earning members of their families and only ladies and children survived. These children had gone through a trauma which affected them psychologically. They could not study and do well in their life. Now their next generation (the third generation of those who were killed) are in Schools. Most of them cannot afford to pay the fees of even average level schools. Some of these families were well to do before 1984, are now living a miserable life. The Congress Government had been shielding the culprits of 1984 Sikh Genocide.
In the year 1984 in Kanpur thousands of Sikhs were killed but the Government has said that about 129 sikhs were killed. But it is matter of pity that in Kanpur and other parts of Uttar Pradesh not a single person has been arrested and that not a single FIR had been registered against the accused persons. The accused are relatives of the Congress party’s Ministers, namely, Shiv Nath Khushwaha, Minister U.P. and his nephew Vijendra Khushwaha and late Naresh Chaturvedi, M.P.
In the year 2005 Dr. Manmohan Singh, the then Prime Minister of the country had announced a package of rupees 715 crores (Rupees seven hundred and fifteen crores) and that the States in which the Sikhs have been killed, the victims families will be benefited by this package. But many states particularly the State of Uttar Pradesh and other states where the riots had taken place and many persons have been burnt alive and loss of their properties particularly Kanpur, Bukharo and Chass, even today their applications for relief are pending with the States.
The demands of victims of 1984 Sikh Genocide are consolidated below:-
(i) Special Investigating Team (SIT) should be set up under the Chairmanship of a Supreme Court Judge. This SIT should investigate the countless cases of 1984 Sikh Genocide and ensure that the accused are brought to book and punished;
(ii) Action shall be taken to file charge sheets against Sajan Kumar in the cases mentioned in paragraphs 5, 6 and 7;
(iii) Each family of 1984 Sikh Genocide be paid compensation of Rs. 10 lakhs;
(iv) Children of all the riot victims of 1984 Sikh Genocide be given employment in the Central Government and the State Governments;

(v) The loans of the victims of 1984 Sikh Genocide should be waived;

(vi) All the policies made in favour of the victims of 1984 Sikh Genocide should be made permanent and continued like that of Scheduled Castes persons;

(vii) As per the orders of the High Court of Punjab and Haryana, Chandigarh, riot victims residing in all the Districts of the State should be allotted flats etc.

(viii) For the education of children of 1984 Sikh Genocide families, there shall be reservation for them.....

New Delhi, October 31:

मेरे साथ आप लोग बोलेंगे, मैं कहूंगा सरदार पटेल आप लोग कहेंगे अमर रहे, अमर रहे,… सरदार पटेल, (अमर रहे) सरदार पटेल, (अमर रहे) सरदार पटेल (अमर रहे)।

मंच पर विराजमान मंत्रिपरिषद के हमारे वरिष्ठ साथी, आदरणीय सुषमा जी, आदरणीय वैंकेया जी, श्रीमान रविशंकर जी, दिल्ली के लेफ्टिनेंट गवर्नर और सारे नौजवान साथियों

आज सरदार वल्लभ भाई पटेल की जन्म जयंती का प्रेरक पर्व है। जो देश इतिहास को भूला देता है, वह देश कभी भी इतिहास का निर्माण नहीं कर सकता है। और इसलिए एक जीवंत राष्ट्र के लिए, एक आशा-आकांक्षाओं के साथ भरे हुए राष्ट्र के लिए सपनों को सजा कर बैठी युवा पीढ़ी के लिए अपने ऐतिहासिक धरोहर सदा-सर्वदा प्रेरणा देती है और हमारे देश ने इस बात को भी कभी भी भूलना नहीं होगा कि हम इतिहास को विरासतों को अपने वैचारिक दायरे में न बांटे। इतिहास पुरूष, राष्ट्र पुरूष इतिहास की वो धरोहर हाते हैं जो आने वाली पीढि़यों के लिए नया उमंग और नया उत्साह भरते हैं।

आज श्रीमती इंदिरा गांधी जी की भी पुण्य तिथि है। सरदार साहब का जीवन देश की एकता के लिए आहूत हो गया। बैरिस्टर के नाते, सफल बैरिस्टर गांधी के चरणों में समर्पित हो गए, और हिंदुस्तान के किसानों को आजादी के आंदोलन में जोड़कर के उन्होंने अंग्रेज सल्तनत को हिला दिया था। अंग्रेज सल्तनत ने भांप लिया था अगर देश का गांव, देश का किसान आजादी के आंदोलन का हिस्सा बन गया तो अंग्रेज सल्तनत की कोई ताकत नहीं है कि वो आजादी के दीवानों के खिलाफ लड़ाई लड़ सके।

कभी-कभी जब हम रामकृष्ण परमहंस को देखते हैं तो लगता है कि स्वामी विवेकानंद के बिना रामकृष्ण परमहंस अधूरे लगते हैं। वैसे ही जब महात्मा गांधी को देखते हैं तो लगता है कि सरदार साहब के बिना गांधी भी अधूरे लगते थे। यह एक अटूट नाता था। यह अटूट जोड़ी थी। जिस दांडी यात्रा ने हिंदुस्तान की आजादी को एक नया मोड़ दिया था। पूरे विश्व को सबसे पहले ताकतवर मैसेज देने का अवसर दांडी यात्रा में से पैदा हुआ था। उस दांडी यात्रा में एक सफल संगठक के रूप में, एक कार्यकर्ता के रूप में सरदार साहब की जो भूमिका थी, वो बेजोड़ थी। और महात्मा गांधी ने दांडी यात्रा की पूरी योजना सरदार साहब के हवाले की थी। हम कल्पना कर सकते थे कि देश की आजादी आंदोलन के अलग-अलग पढ़ाव में, महात्मा गांधी के साथ रहकर के सरदार साहब की कितनी अहम भूमिका रही थी और आजादी के बाद सरदार साहब का लाभ देश को बहुत कम मिला। बहुत कम समय तक हमारे बीच रहे। लेकिन इतने कम समय में सरदार साहब ने अंग्रेजों के सारे सपनों को धूल में मिला दिया था, चूर-चूर कर दिया था। अपनी दूर दृष्टि के द्वारा, अपने कूटनीति सामर्थ्य के द्वारा, अपनी राष्ट्र भक्ति के द्वारा। अंग्रेज चाहते थे कि देश आजाद होने के बाद सैकड़ों टुकड़ों में बिखर जाए। आपस में लड़ते रहे, मर मिटते रहे, यह अंग्रेजों का इरादा था, लेकिन सरदार साहब ने अपनी कूटनीति के द्वारा, अपनी दीर्घ दृष्टि के द्वारा, अपने लोखंडित मनोबल के द्वारा साढ़े पांच सौ से भी अधिक रियासतों को एक सूत्र में बांध दिया। जिसे सम्मान देने की जरूरत थी, उसे सम्मान दिया। जिसको पुचकारने की जरूरत थी, उसको पुचकारा और जिसको आंख दिखाने की जरूरत थी उसको आंख दिखाने में भी सरदार पटेल ने कभी हिचक नहीं की, संकोच नहीं किया। उस सामर्थ्य का परिचय दिया था। और उसी महापुरूष ने, एक प्रकार से आज जब हिंदुस्तान देख रहे हैं वो एक भारत का सफलदृष्टा उसके नियंता सरदार पटेल को देश कभी भूल नहीं सकता है।

शताब्दियों पहले इतिहास में चाणक्य का उल्लेख इस बात के लिए आता है कि उन्होंने अनेक राजे-रजवाड़ों को एक करके, एक सपना लेकर के, राष्ट्र के पुनरूद्धार का सपना देकर के सफल प्रयास किया था। चाणक्य के बाद उस महान काम को करने वाले एक महापुरूष हैं, जिनका आज हम जन्म जयंती पर्व मना रहे हैं, वो सरदार वल्लभ भाई पटेल हैं। लेकिन यह कैसा दुर्भाग्य है, जिस व्यक्ति ने देश की एकता के लिए अपने आप को खपा दिया था, आलोचनाएं झेली थी, विरोध झेले थे। अपने राजनीतिक यात्रा में रूकावटें महसूस की थी। लेकिन उस लक्ष्य की पूर्ति के मार्ग से कभी विचलित नहीं हुए थे, और वो लक्ष्य था भारत की एकता। उसी देश में, उसी महापुरूष की जन्म जयंती पर, 30 साल पहले भारत की एकता को गहरी चोट पहुंचाने वाली एक भयंकर घटना ने आकार लिया। हमारे ही अपने लोगों को मौत के घाट उतार दिया गया। और वो घटना किसी सम्प्रदाय के लोगों के सीने पर लगे घाव की नहीं थी, वो घटना भारत के हजारों साल के महान व्यवस्था के सीने पर लगा हुआा एक छूरा था, एक खंजर था, भयंकर आपत्तिजनक था। लेकिन दुर्भाग्य रहा इतिहास का कि उसे महापुरूष के जयंती के दिन यह हो गया। और तब जाकर के देश की एकता के लिए, हम लोगों ने अधिक जागरूकता के साथ, अधिक जिम्मेवारी के साथ। सरदार साहब ने हमें एक भारत दिया, श्रेष्ठ भारत बनाना हमारी जिम्मेवारी है। ‘एक भारत श्रेष्ठ भारत’ इस सपने को पूरा करने के लिए भारत की जो महान विरासत है वो विरासतें विविधता में एकता की है। उस विविधता में एकता की विरासत को लेकर के, जातिवाद से परे उठकर के, भाषावाद से परे उठकर के, सम्प्रदायवाद से परे उठकर के एक भारत समृद्ध भारत, ऊंच-नीच के भेदभाव से मुक्त भारत यह सपने को साकार करने के लिए आज से उत्तम पर्व नहीं हो सकता, जो हमें आने वाले दिनों के लिए प्रेरणा देता रहे।

और युवा पीढ़ी आज इस राष्ट्रीय एकता दिवस पर पूरे हिंदुस्तान में Run for Unity के लिए दौड़ रही है। मैं समझता हूं यह हमारा प्रयास एकता के मंत्र को निरंतर जगाए रखना चाहिए। और हमारे शास्त्रों में कहा है राष्ट्रयाम जाग्रयम वयम.. हर पल हमें जागते रहना चाहिए अपने सपनों को लेकर के, सोचते रहना चाहिए, उसके अनुरूप काम करते रहना चाहिए तभी संभव होता है। भारत विविधताओं से भरा हुआ देश है। अनेक विविधताओं से भरा हुआ देश है। विविधता में एकता यही हमारी विशेषता है। हम कभी एकरूपता के पक्षकार नहीं रहे। हम विविधताओं से भरे हुए रहते हैं। एक ही प्रकार के फूलों से बना गुलदस्ता और रंग-बिरंगे फूलों से बने गुलदस्ते में कितना फर्क होता है। भारत उन विशेषताओं से भरा हुआ देश है, उन विशेषताओं को बनाते हुए एकता के सूत्र को जीवंत रखना, एकता के सूत्र को बलवंत बनाना यही हम लोगों का प्रयास है और यही एकता का संदेश है।
राज्य अनेक राष्ट्र एक,
पंथ अनेक लक्ष्य एक,
बोली अनेक स्वर एक,
भाषा अनेक भाव एक,
रंग अनेक तिरंगा एक,
समाज अनेक भारत एक,
रिवाज अनेक संस्कार एक,
कार्य अनेक संकल्प एक,
राह अनेक मंजिल एक,
चेहरे अनेक मुस्कान एक,
इसी एकता के मंत्र को लेकर के यह देश आगे बढ़े।

Chandigarh, October 31: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today while saluting the heroes, who made relentless sacrifices to realize the goal of a Punjabi Suba, reiterated its commitment to undo the injustice done to Punjab during reorganization of the State.
In a statement here on the eve of Punjab Day, SAD general secretary Maheshinder Singh Grewal said successive Congress governments at the centre were responsible for the criminal neglect of Punjab and its people due to which various important issues concerning the State remained unresolved. “Chandigarh was not designated as the sole capital of Punjab following reorganization. Various Punjabi speaking areas were kept out of the ambit of the new State of Punjab following a well planned conspiracy. Even the river waters of Punjab were awarded to other States bypassing the laid down principle of riparian rights”.
The SAD leader said now with the Congress virtually consigned to the dustbin of history after a decade long misrule, the SAD both hoped and expected the new government to undo the injustice meted out to the State. “The SAD will also take up the issues vigorously and do everything possible while remaining within the ambit of the constitution to achieve its goals”, Grewal said adding “We are confident the centre will consider our demands sympathetically and resolve them at the earliest”.
Grewal said besides the need to resolve the pending issues of the State, the SAD felt Punjab was not getting its due for coming to the aid of the country when it faced a food crisis as well as when it fought the nation’s war against terror. “Punjab filled the nation’s food pool at great loss to its own land including depletion of its water resources. It also incurred a huge debt while fighting the nation’s war against terrorism. Now we are in need of a loan waiver as well as a financial package to put the State’s finances back on track. We are hopeful that this demand will receive the urgent attention it requires from the centre”, the akali leader added.
Speaking about the SAD, Grewal said the party was committed to maintaining the multi-regional and multi cultural identity of the country which was represented ably by regional parties whose role could not be overemphasized in a democracy. “We are also votaries of a federal structure as enshrined in the constitution and feel that this should be strengthened further. We are also for ensuring the minorities get their due space in society”.
The Akali leader said the SAD also took this occasion to assure the people of Punjab that it was committed to all round development and peace and brotherhood among all communities at all costs. “This is the cornerstone of the State policy under the leadership of S Parkash Singh Badal and also forms a part of the philosophy of the SAD under the leadership of S Sukhbir Singh Badal”, Grewal added.

TarnTaran, October 31 : All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) and Sikh Students Federation Mehta (SSF) gave a call for ‘Punjab Bandh” on November 1st and requested people of Punjab to do the bandh peacefully and do not believe in any misleading information.

Bandh call given keeping in view anti Sikh riots occurred in Novemebr 1st 1984, thirty years back in the national capital of Delhi which was allegedly Congress party was behind the Genocide of Sikhs

AISSF President Karnail Singh Peermohammad said that 2014 November will be 30 years when after the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, the Congress leaders organized and orchestrated genocidal attacks targeting the Sikh community throughout India. The attacks on Sikh lives, properties and places of worship were carried out in a meticulous and identical manner resulting in more than 20,000 Sikhs being killed most of them burnt alive, hundreds of Sikh women being raped, Sikh Gurudwaras being burnt; Sikh properties looted and more than 300,000 Sikhs being uprooted and displaced.

Justifying the call for November 1st “Punjab Bandh” AISSF President Karnail Singh Peermohammad Along with SSF President Paramjit Singh Khalsa, Sikh Genocide's president Surjit singh dugri, Bibi gurdeep kaur, Bibi Jagdish Kaur Prime Witness Sajjan Kumar Case and Kanwarbir Singh Gill Punjab president of International Sikh Organization stated that after having lost faith and disgruntled with the Indian legal system, 1984 Sikh genocide victims have now approached the People of Punjab for their support to seek justice.

Federation President stated, To show solidarity with 1984 Sikh Genocide victims, “We appeal to the People of Punjab and the SAD (Badal) government to support the November 1st “Bandh” call and keep government offices, businesses and educational institutions closed for a day”.

AISSF President stated that despite recommendations of Nanavati Commission, successive Congress governments shielded the high ranking Congress leaders from prosecution for their role in November 1984. “Since BJP-SAD is now in power at Delhi, victims demand that cases should be filed against Kamal Nath, Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler”.

“Justice for the 1984 victims does not mean “Votes” for political leaders who use this issue during elections but ‘Convictions” of those responsible for the Sikh Genocide added Peermohammad.

The Sikh human rights groups have developed consensus that the recent discoveries of mass killings of Sikhs in more than 100 cities throughout India proves that November 1984 is Genocide as defined in Article 2 of the UN Convention on Genocide. The gravity, scale, organized and intentional nature of these genocidal attacks was concealed by the Indian governments by portraying them as “Anti-Sikh Riots of Delhi”. The recently discovered evidence shows that more than 37000 claims for deaths and injuries were filed by the victims of November 1984, out of which more than 20,000 claims were by victims who were attacked outside Delhi, said Peermohammad.

AISSF, 1984 victims and human rights activists have started a “"Torch of Justice" campaign which will pass through Hondh-Chillar, Kanpur, Bokaro, Jharkhand and Delhi. A delegation of Sikh Genocide survivors and AISSF will carry the "Torch of Justice" from Delhi to New York reaching U.N. headquarters on November 7th.

Among the other organizations who supported Punjab Bandh call were Damdami Taksal's Chief Baba Ram Singh,
Akhand Kirtani Jatha's Chief Bhai Baldev Singh, United Sikh Movement's President Bhai Maukam Singh, 1984 Dharmi Fauji welfare society's president Bhai Baldev Singh Gurdaspur, Sikh Federation Bhindrawala's President Bhai Balwant Singh Gopala, Delhi Gurudwara Prabadk Committee (Dharam Parchaar)'s ex chairman Bhai Tarsem Singh Khalsa, Sarbat Khalsa Lehar's Chief Bhai Baljeet Singh Kalanangal and Bhai Dharam Singh Trust's Chief Bibi Sandeep Kaur Kastiwaal.

Chandigarh, October 31: The Punjab Congress President, Partap Singh Bajwa, today strongly denounced the Narendra Modi government for ignoring the martyrdom day anniversary of Shrimati Indira Gandhi who sacrificed her life on this day for the unity and integrity of the country.

“This betrays parochial, partisan and narrow-minded thinking of the ruling party leadership at the centre as the prime minister represents the nation and not a particular political party. It is just more than the moral duty to observe the days associated with such towering national personalities. We appreciate that this government has remembered Sardar Patel but the legacy of such leaders should not be politicised nor appropriated for narrow vested interests. It was the same Sardar Patel, who as the Union Home Minister, had banned the fundamentalist RSS to which Modi belongs. Ignoring of the anniversary of Shrimati Gandhi just cannot be condoned as she symbolised unity and integrity of the country”, he added.

Bajwa said the BJP had been associated with sectarian approach but the vast and diverse country like India could not be governed with such prejudiced thinking.

He said the BJP might have gained electorally but the party leaders could not take the support of the people for guaranteed for all time to come and they would have to answerable about their acts of omission and commission.

He recalled that it were the BJP leaders like Atal Behari Vajpayee who had euologised her as Durga and it was on the record. He had given her this highest compliment on the floor of the Parliament on the creation of Bangladesh after the dismemberment of Pakistan. However, it was regrettable that the same very party government had given manifestation to its limited vision and approach by not observing the martyrdom day anniversary of Shrimati Gandhi.

He said this approach of the Modi government was unprecedented as no government at the centre had earlier ignored this day. The Modi government was setting up wrong and unhealthy precedents for the polity of this country, he added.

Chandigarh/Bathinda, October 31 : The compensation awarded to the victims of 1984 riots is mere beginning of the procedure to balm their wounds, said the Deputy Chief Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal in an interaction with the media persons while inaugurating the ambitious Rs 75 cr Ring Road phase 2 connecting Bathinda - Badal road with Bathinda - Malout Road and the railway over bridge (RIB) over Sri Ganganagar railway line project.
He said that now the Punjab government will build up pressure on NDA government to punish those involved in heinous killings of innocent Sikhs in 1984 so that the wounds of victims are healed. He said that along with compensation, the accused should be awarded strict punishment for which SAD will leave no stone unturned to pressurize the center government. Accompanying him was the Punjab’s Revenue, Rehabilitation and Information and Public Relations Minister Mr Bikramjit Singh Majithia.
Terming Rs 50 hike in the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of wheat as a small measure he said that the Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi would be approached to increase this hike by at least Rs 150 to Rs 200 per quintal. He added that the state government stood by its farmers and very soon center government would be approached for considerable hike of MSP. Speaking on the issue of black money stashed in the Swiss Bank accounts he said that the center government should make the list of account holders public so that every Indian could know about it.
After having inaugurated the project, while addressing a large crowd Mr Badal said it was due to the malicious policies of Congress led UPA government that the ROB’s construction in the Ring Road phase 2 project got delayed by over two years. He added that due to partisan attitude of UPA government the work on this project as well as commissioning of International Airport in Bathinda lay in limbo. He added that the airport too shall be commissioned very soon. Reiterating the SAD-BJP government’s commitment to provide people of Punjab with the best of facilities, he said that more projects would be brought to the state.
He added that with the commissioning of road and ROB, Bathinda city’s traffic congestion will get major relief as the traffic moving from Mansa, Dabwali, Haryana and other areas would be diverted to Malout, Muktsar, Fazilka and Abohar using this road. Even the heavy vehicles such as oil tankers of oil depots and Guru Gobind Singh Refinery will move towards areas of Malout, Abohar, Muktsar and Fazilka using this route.
The Ring Road phase 2 is 7 kms long, while the length of ROB on it is 660 m. It has 7.50 m wide two spans and 1.20 m wide central verge. Of the 660 long ROB, The Bathinda Development Authority (BDA) has completed Ring Road 2 and ROB at a cost of total Rs 75 cr. BDA had laid Ring Road phase 2 at a cost of Rs 23 cr and readied it by February 2011.
BDA has constructed its 583 m portion of ROB on time, while the 77 m of portion lying in railways’ jurisdiction lay pending for some time. After the MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal intervened and took up matter with the Ministry of Railways, Government of India, the railways completed its portion. Now after the completion of Rs 42 cr ROB, the Ring Road phase 2 has been commissioned.
Prominent among others present at the occasion included Chief Parliamentary Secretary Mr Sarup Chand Singla, former CPS Mr Jagdeep Singh Nakkai, Deputy Commissioner Bathinda Dr Basant Garg, DIG Mr Amar Singh Chahal, SSP Mr Gurpreet Singh Bhullar, former Mayor Baljit Singh Beerbehman, Chief Administrator BDA Mr Varinder Sharma, SAD press secretary Mr Om Prakash Sharma and others.....

Chandigarh, October 31: Dr Baldev Singh Dhillon, Vice Chancellor, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, today gave a call for making technical innovations in agriculture sector to enable the world to meet the emerging challenge of food security in 21st century.
Giving a presentation on the concluding day of three-day meet by Commonwealth Parliamentary Association on agriculture Dr Dhillon said that countries would have to focus on crop improvement by conventional breeding and bio-technology, adopt new cropping systems and focus on sustainable use of agriculture resources and applied inputs. Focusing on agro-processing as value addition area in agriculture he also emphasised the need for sensor based precision in agriculture for optimum utilisation of water and other inputs.
Batting for climate resilient agriculture Dr Dhillon said that time has come that universities should pool their resources to come out with strains of climate resilient crops in view of adverse impact of global warming and unpredictable and swift climatic changes.
Favoring continuance of Minimum Support Price (MSP) regime, especially procurement by government, Dr Dhillon said that for a country like India where 80% population was dependent on agriculture sector, the intervention of government in procurement of agriculture produce was imperative to safeguard the interest of farmers from international marketing pressures.
Advising farmers to focus on diversification and take benefit of research of agriculture universities, he said that Kiwi fruit cultivation promoted by Y.S.Parmar University of Horticulture, Himachal Pradesh, has revolutionised the lives of small farmers and similarly seedless Kinnow cultivation has been instrumental in food processing this crop.
Advocating new cropping system, Dr Dhillon said that farmers could opt for either cotton (early maturing) and wheat cycle or "rice/maize-wheat-summer moong cycle" or "rice-potato-spring maize cycle" or green manure-rice/maize-wheat cycle according to climatic and soil requirements for optimum utilisation of resources.
Expressing concern over depleting water resources, Dr Baldev Singh Dhillon advocated censor based soil moisture probe that can save 15-20% irrigation water. Similarly leaf colour chart test can save 62 kg per hectare urea. Underlining the need for promoting laser land leveler, early maturing crops, direct seeding of rice, drip irrigation especially in orchards, Dr Dhillon said that water depletion in Punjab is a wakeup call for whole world and corrective steps would have to be taken by all countries.
Focusing on multi dimensional expansion of research activities, Dr Dhillon said that controlled climate vegetable cultivation has changed the lives of farmers especially in Himachal Pradesh and Punjab and such steps were needed to improve the economy of farmers. He advised small farmers to adopt bee-keeping, mushroom cultivation, to improve their economic lot.
Dr Bhagirath Choudhary from International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications also gave a presentation on "Innovations to improve Food Production and Farmers Income".....

Answering to media queries here Mr. Badal along with Mr. Bikram Singh Majithia, Revenue Minister Punjab said that this was a beginning of commitment made by NDA before coming to power and they were very confident that justice would be delivered to Sikhs at all costs. “I and Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal are going to meet Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Mr. Rajnath Singh on the issue. We will press the Union Government to expedite the legal proceedings so the guilty could put behind the bars by adopting appropriate legal measures.”

On the issue of media reports regarding PPCC President Mr. Partap Singh Bajwa’s proximity with a person involved in criminal activities, Mr. Badal said that it was very unfortunate if he hired gangsters to put away congress workers having resentment against him. He said that this act of PPCC chief has exposed his real face.

When asked about the Rs. 50 hike in MSP, Mr. Badal admitted that it was a very meager. “It should have Rs. 200 for the facilitation of farming community facing high input rates” he added. Mr. Badal said that it should be revised in view of current farming scenario.

Answering to a query that 30th anniversary of Sikh pogrom is falling in next month and what is being done by SAD in this regard, Mr. Badal said tomorrow they will lay a foundation stone of memorial in the memory of 1984 riot victims.

Chandigarh/Panjawa (Lambi), October 31: Punjab today registered another major leap in the power sector with Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal inaugurating India’s biggest pollution free solar power project here which will generate 34 mw power and cater to the power needs of more than 250 villages comprising one lakh households.
Inaugurating the project, Mr. Badal who was accompanied by Non Conventional and Renewable Energy Minister Mr. Bikram Singh Majithia, apprised the gathering that by the end of this year Punjab will be able to generate 250 mw power from solar projects. He said by the end of December next year Punjab will achieve solar generation capacity of 2000 mw power.
Talking to media persons after inaugurating the project, Mr. Badal said the government was contemplating to install solar panels on the rooftops of tubewells and residential complexes. He said once the solar panels were installed on tube well rooftops the farmers of the state could get uninterrupted and pollution free power. He said this policy would not only reduce the power expenditure of consumers but also become a source of income since the farmers would be able to sell their surplus power to the grid. He said for this purpose the State government had formulated and approved a Net Metering Policy and people should come forward to generate requisite power through solar projects.
Answering a query regarding strategy of State for waterlogged areas, Mr. Badal said it had already been decided to put waterlogged area in the priority list for installation of solar projects. He said infertile land of villages and non-used panchayats land would be identified in waterlogged areas to initiate these projects.
On the issue of development projects in state, Mr. Badal said that the sole aim of SAD-BJP government was to ensure efficient governance and effective solutions to Punjab’s developmental challenges.
Non Conventional and Renewable energy minister Mr. Bikram Singh Majithia said Punjab was growing in the area of solar power in leaps and bounds. He said that this was the 6th project in the state, which would generate power at a cost of Rs. 350 crore. He said the Union Non Conventional ministry had given its nod to establish 1000 MW Solar Park for which process of land identification has been completed. He said it is also a matter of pride for Punjab that we have world’s biggest 7.5 mw rooftop solar power plant at Beas.

Earlier Chairman of Azure company Mr. H.S. Wadhwa, Mr. Inderpreet Wadhwa, CEO and Co-founder Mr. Preet Sandhu honoured Deputy CM and Mr. Majithia for their fulsome cooperation in installation of this project. They also thanked Punjab Government for this mega project spread over a land of 170 acres.
Prominent amongst those present on the occasion Mr. Avtar Singh Brar, chairman PRTC, Assistant Media Advisor to Deputy CM Mr. Harjinder Sidhu, Mr. Kanwarjit Singh Barkandi, Mr. Balkaran Singh, OSD to CM Punjab, Mr. Tejinder Singh Middu Khera and Mr. Satinder Jit Singh Manta.....
