Chandigarh, July 31 (Courtesy HT) : India's got talent's one-legged dancer Shubhreet Kaur Ghumman has alleged her Chandigarh-based husband Yash Makkar of marrying her by giving false details of his family background and duping her of about Rs. 20 lakh, including Rs. 4 lakh spent on the marriage.

He further alleged that she forced him to marry her by making cut on her wrist.
Now she is planning to lodge an FIR against Makkar in her home town Malerkotla.

Shubhreet, while talking to HT said, "On June 5 this year I married Yash Makkar, who also runs a gym in Mohali. Before marriage, he told me that his family lives in England and soon they will also get settled there. After marriage we shifted to a rented house in Mohali. But few days later I came to know that his family lives in Chandigarh and he married me for my property.”

"I had a fixed deposit of Rs. 1.45 lakh which he withdrew from the bank. Besides my jewellery, he also took away Rs. 10 lakh which my mom had given us at the time of our marriage,” said Shubhreet.

Punjab's SOS to Centre for Rs. 2,330-crore relief

By Babushahi.com

Chandigarh July 31 (Courtesy HT) : With the rainfall deficit having reached an alarmingly high 58% in Punjab, the Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP government alerted the union government on Tuesday about “drought-like conditions” and reiterated its plea for Rs. 2,330 crore special central assistance to “mitigate the effects of deficient rainfall.”

Chandigarh July 31 (Courtesy HT) : With the rainfall deficit having reached an alarmingly high 58% in Punjab, the Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP government alerted the union government on Tuesday about “drought-like conditions” and reiterated its plea for Rs. 2,330 crore special central assistance to “mitigate the effects of deficient rainfall.”

The Parkash Singh Badal government has taken the plea that similar drought-like situation had hit Punjab in the 2009 kharif season and that then union government had released Rs. 800 crore as assistance for additional cost incurred by Punjab in providing power to the agriculture sector.

Even though it was an official holiday in Punjab on Tuesday, key functionaries of the agricultural department and financial commissioner, development (FCD), Suresh Kumar swung into action after being sounded that union agriculture minister Radha Mohan Singh had denied that Punjab had sought any help in view of scarce rainfall.

The state government took up the issue with Ashish Bahuguna, secretary, union ministry of agriculture, and informed him about the proposal sent by the director, agriculture, to the commissioner, agriculture, of the union government. The Badal administration specifically informed the union secretary, agriculture, that the chief minister had also written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking Rs. 2,330-crore help.

Referring to the union agriculture minister’s reported statement that Punjab had not sought any assistance to mitigate effects of drought during the kharif season, the state government said: “…the requisite proposals and contingency plan have already reached the (union) ministry.”

In a detailed July 29 demi-official letter, FCD Suresh Kumar said: “The drought-like conditions are still prevailing in the state, with 58% deficiency in rainfall as on July 28. Farmers and the state government are extremely stressed to save crops by spending huge amounts on diesel and electricity.”

Due to the current scanty rainfall, Badal told Modi, about 85,000 tubewells would require further deepening, costing about Rs. 700 crore. And, the state power corporation, “which is diverting electricity from paying sectors to non-paying agriculture sector”, is likely to incur an additional expenditure of Rs. 1,500 crore, Badal had said in his July 4 letter to the Prime Minister.

In 2010-11, fiscal agriculture contributed about 22% of the Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP).

Almost 98% cultivated area of Punjab is under assured irrigation, with about 73% of the area under tubewell irrigation and the rest being supplied irrigation water by canals.

Punjab has told the Centre that of the total 11.56 lakh electrical tubewells in the state, 50,000 having mono block pump sets go defunct and farmers have to replace them.

“It is estimated that during the current year, nearly 85,000 tubewells will be deepened and the average cost varies from Rs. 1.5 lakh to Rs. 2.5 lakh, As such, farmers will have to incur additional Rs. 700 crore on deepening tubewells, for which they need to be compensated,” says the detailed financial relief-seeking proposal of the state government.

The state government has also urged the Centre to examine the possibility of conversion of short-term credit to medium-term credit and that interest payable to the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (Nabard) on funds provided to cooperative banks should be lowered so that the banks can pass on the benefits to farmers.....

Chandigarh, July 31 – Haryana Chief Minister, Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda today announced to give Rs 21 lakh for setting up Shaheed Udham Singh Memorial at Shahbad and to set up a sports stadia for girls. Apart from this, he also announced to give Rs 10 crore under Haryana Rural Development Fund for development of villages of Shahbad and Rs five crore for development of Shahbad City.
Mr. Hooda was addressing the gathering in a ‘Dhanyawad Rally’ organized by MLA Mr. Anil Vij at Shahbad (Markanda), district Kurukshetra today. He said that after checking the norms, the 50-bedded hospital of the area would first be upgraded to 75-bedded then to 100-bedded hospital.
The Chief Minister said that his grandfather and Shaheed Udham Singh had played great role in the freedom struggle of the country. He said that the martyrs had not sacrificed for a particular caste or religion rather they had sacrificed for freedom of all castes and religion. The State Government of Congress Party had been implementing welfare schemes for all sections of society for the last 10 years with a view to realize the dreams of martyrs.
He said that only Rs 421.47 crore was spent on development of district Kurukshetra during the six years tenure of INLD-BJP Government whereas the present State Government has spent Rs 2766.87 crore on the development of the district. Similarly, Rs 15.42 crore has been spent on development of Shahbad. This clearly signifies that Congress Government has undertaken overall development of the area.
Mr. Hooda said that he himself is a son of farmer and understand the problems of farmers very well. Therefore, he has abolished the black laws of Cooperative Banks. He said that Haryana is the first state to reduce to the interest on crop loan from 11 per cent to four per cent. Under the able leadership of UPA Chairperson Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, the Central Government had waived off loans of Rs 2136 crore. Similarly, the State Government has also waived off the loans amounting to Rs 450 crore of Cooperative Banks.
He said that an atmosphere was created in the country in favour of a particular individual that he has a magic wand and all the problems of the people would vanish immediately. He said that BJP would never be pro-farmer and pro-labourer party on the basis of its policies.
Mr. Hooda said that hailing from a political family he understood the feelings of people very well. Now, people are feeling cheated. The Congress Party had lost all five seats during Lok Sabha Elections in Uttarakhand, but it can be seen in the outcome of the by-elections in Uttarakhand where all the three seats have been won by the Congress Party.
He said that during last one-and-a-half month people of all sections of society had organized 42 public meetings and he has visited the entire State and observed the feelings and vision of people. He said that party is getting full support from all. Therefore, it is clear that the Congress would form government in the state for the third consecutive term.....

This is nothing short of treachery on his part to reveal privileged information and conversations apart from inventing scandalous tales. For a person who takes pride in having worked and served under Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi to stoop to such a level for personal and political gain is shocking in the extreme. Here it must be remembered that Mr. Natwar Singh’s son. Jagat is currently a BJP MLA in Rajasthan.
Bajwa further said that for a person with pretensions to being a historian and a man of letters this is a very big come down and entirely self-created. He urged all congressmen and people of sensibility to socially boycott Kanwar Natwar Singh.

New Delhi, July 31 : Lt Gen Dalbir Singh Suhag, whose appointment as army chief had kicked up a row, took over as the next head of the 1.3 million strong force succeeding Gen Bikram Singh who is retiring.


Suhag was designated as army chief in May by the outgoing UPA government ignoring protests from his predecessor Gen V K Singh and BJP.

59-year-old Lt Gen Suhag, a Gurkha officer who had participated in the 1987 Indian Peace Keeping Force (IPKF) operation in Sri Lanka, was the Vice Chief of Army Staff.

He will have a tenure of 30 months as the 26th Chief of the armed forces.

Suhag was made the Vice Chief of Army Staff in December last year.

Earlier, he had taken over as the Eastern Army Commander on June 16, 2012.

He was at the centre of a controversy triggered by Discipline and Vigilance ban imposed on him by the then army chief Gen V K Singh in connection with an intelligence operation in Assam earlier. The ban on Suhag, the then 2 Corps Commander, was lifted soon after Gen Bikram Singh took over in May, 2012.

BJP had questioned the "hurry" in making the appointment and insisted that the matter be left to the next government. However, soon after the NDA government took over, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said the new dispensation will continue with the appointment made during UPA rule.

New Delhi, July 31 : In a significant international development US will support India in seeking membership of the UN Security Council. This was indicated by visiting US Secretary of State John Kerry in an interview to a private TV channel in New Delhi.

He said America also supports India to become a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group. He said US is looking forward to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit later this year.

On alleged surveillance of BJP by US National Security Agency, Kerry said it is not appropriate to discuss the issues of intelligence in public. He, however, assured that President Obama is doing his best to be open.

US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, who is accompanying Kerry said, the tone and attitude of Modi-led government is most exciting and there is a lot of optimism as far as relationship between the two countries is concerned.

She said the US is sympathetic towards India’s food security challenge. Her comments come in wake of New Delhi's tough stand which has put a question mark on the passage of the Trade Facilitation Agreement at the ongoing Geneva talks. India is seeking a guarantee on food security for its millions of poor people as a pre-condition for the passage of the pact.

Amritsar- Dal Khalsa writes to Jathedar of the Akal Takhat apprising him of the plight and status of death row convict Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana’s case besides negative fallout of the internal bickering within the community.

Party head H S Dhami in his letter sent to Gaini Gurbachan Singh pointed out how Akali led Punjab government has ditched all Panthic efforts to save Rajoana from gallows by refusing to recommend commutation of Rajoana’s death sentence into life on the Home Ministry letter asking for its version.

Notably, Akali Dal & SGPC has filed a petition before the President of India against the death sentence awarded to Rajoana.

Dhami said the media report indicates that India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh would take the final call on Rajoana as Punjab government has refused to recommend anything on the file. He further quoted Home Ministry official saying that Punjab government has put the onus to take the final decision on Central government.

Reminding Jathedar for bestowing the title of “living martyr’ on Rajoana by Five Singh Sahibans, he said Badals have twin tongue and dual face. There's a wide gap between the perception and views of Badals as head of the government and as head of the SAD.

He urged the Jathedar to caution the SGPC, DSGMC and the Akali Dal timely of the serious ramifications in case the Modi Sarkar decides to hang Rajoana.

Referring to Badal Parivar controlling the levers of power in all institutions be it political, religious or educational, he said it’s ironic that one family is calling the shots.

We hear the slogan of “Akal Takhat is supreme and pride of the Sikh Panth” during Panthic gatherings and marches, said he. But in practical terms, the political as well as religious leadership was destroying its supremacy, traditions, ethos, tenets and principles. Without naming anyone, the letter says arrogance and big ego’s of those who are at the helm of community’s affairs were responsible for denigration of Sikh institutions including Akal Takht and SGPC.

The letter rue that instead of forging unity, the Sikh institutions and organizations were involved in a race to show other in a poor light.

Referring to their organizations sharp differences with the Jathedar on HSGMC row, Dhami said we differ with you in principle on many issues, however this difference of opinion should not affect our genuine plea to you to save Rajoana.

He took a dig at SGPC for spending a huge amount from guru’s golak to run the advertisement to enforce the edict of Jathedar excommunicating Haryana Sikhs. Asking the Jathedar to give a pause and think, why the SGPC has to resort to such practice?....

HOPEFUL OF GoI’S SUPPORT TO TACKLE DROUGHT LIKE SITUATION IN THE STATE
STATE GOVERNMENT COMMITTED FOR ERADICATING CURSE OF DRUGS FROM PUNJAB

Udham Singh Wala (Sunam), July 31-
Slamming the Congress party for irrelevantly meddling in the affairs of the Sikhs, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today said that the people of state would never forgive the Congress for vitiating the atmosphere of state by pursuing the politics of divide and rule.
Addressing a mammoth gathering during the state level function on the Martyrdom day of Shaheed Udham Singh here today, the Chief Minister said that the move to constitute separate committee in Haryana for managing the affairs of Gurdwaras in the state was the latest step of the Congress to divide the Sikh brethren in the country. He said that it was a third major assault on the Sikhs by the Congress, the other two being Operation Blue Star and 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Mr. Badal said that the Congress party has always inflicted serious blows to the state both economically and religiously, so the wise people of Punjab would never forgive it for these sinister moves.

The Chief Minister, while terming the Congress party as the biggest enemy of the state, said that the decade long misrule of Congress led UPA government has broken the backbone of Punjab’s economy. Squarely blaming the UPA government for the woes of the peasantry in the state, Mr. Badal said that due to the ill conceived policies of previous union government the farmers of state were today reeling under a whopping debt of Rs 32000 crore. Likewise, he said that mass exodus of industry had taken place during the tenure of UPA because it had extended industrial incentives to the hilly states. However, Mr. Badal said that with the formation of NDA government at the Centre the days of discrimination with the state were over.
Reiterating his firm commitment to provide transparent, responsible and corruption free governance to the people, the Chief Minister said every section of society including the media should play a proactive role in eliminating the menace of corruption from the state.
Paying rich tributes to Shaheed Udham Singh, the Chief Minister said that the supreme sacrifice of this great son of the soil, who avenged the Jallianwala Bagh massacre by killing General O'dwyer after 21 years, would ever remain as a source of inspiration for our younger generations to fight against tyranny, oppression and injustice. He said that despite of being merely two percent of country’s population, the Punjabis have made more than 80% sacrifices in the national freedom struggle due to which they have a prominent place in the Indian history. Mr. Badal said that the rich legacy of unprecedented sacrifices made by martyrs would ever act as a light house to guide the destiny of our future generations.
The Chief Minister further said that in order to perpetuate the supreme sacrifices made by our great national heroes the state government was constructing Jang-e-Azaadi memorial at Kartarpur near Jalandhar. He said that coming up at a cost of Rs 200 crore, this unique memorial would showcase the supreme sacrifices made by our freedom fighters to make the country free from the yoke of British Imperialism.
Interacting with the media persons, the Chief Minister said that the state government has made all out efforts for delivering corruption free administration to the people adding that the state government has ensured 100% transparency in the recruitment for the government jobs. He said that if any case of corruption was brought in their notice then strict action was taken against the guilty person. Mr. Badal also sought fulsome support and cooperation of people for checking corruption in the state.
Responding to another query, the Chief Minister said that on account of deficit rainfall in the state, he had already taken up the matter with the Union Ministers to assist the state in dealing with the drought like situation. Mr. Badal said that the state government has sought financial assistance worth about Rs 2000 crore to deal with this crisis as it was the bounden duty of everybody to bail out the hardworking and resilient farmers of the state, who had played a key role in making the country self reliant in food production. “We have vehemently raised this issue with the Government of India (GoI) and I am hopeful of a positive outcome of our efforts” he added.
When asked to comment on the problem of drug menace in the state, the Chief Minister said that the Punjab government has declared a crusade against drugs in the state and concerted efforts were afoot to wipe out this curse from the state. He said that besides providing world class facilities for detoxifying the drug addicts, the state government was also making efforts to ensure proper rehabilitation of the drug addicts in Punjab. Mr. Badal said that 22 Rehabilitation centers were being opened by the state government across the state to rehabilitate the drug addicts by imparting them skill training so that they could live a life with dignity and self respect.
Earlier paying homage to the great martyr, Finance Minister Mr. Parminder Singh Dhindsa in his address said that the people of country would ever remain indebted to Shaheed Udham Singh for the supreme sacrifice made by him, which has made every Indian feel proud for this rare act of patriotism. He appealed the youth to imbibe the spirit of self sacrifice, patriotism and nationalism amongst themselves to serve the nation with utmost zeal and commitment. Mr. Dhindsa also lauded the Chief Minister for taking unprecedented step of erecting Jang-e-Azaadi memorial to showcase the history of great national heroes to the younger generations.
On the occasion, the Chief Minister also unveiled a book on Shaheed Udham Singh authored by Mr. Prem Kumar Guglani. Earlier, the Chief Minister also paid homage at the ShaheedUdham Singh Memorial in the local stadium.
Prominent amongst other who addressed the gathering included Chief Parliamentary Secretaries Sant Balbir Singh Ghunas and Babu Parkash Chand Garg, MLA Mr. Iqbal Singh, Administrative Director of PSPCL Mr. Gurbachan Singh Bachi and former Minister Mr. Gobind Singh Kanjla. ....

As Modi, Juneja also started his career from tea stall
Captain Amrinder Singh visited Amritsar only once after getting elected as MP from city





Patiala, July 31

Shiromani Akali Dal President and Deputy Chief Minister Punjab Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal today said that people of Patiala are all set to vote for social worker juneja to end ‘Rajwarashahi’ era from the Patiala legislative constituency.

Addressing a mammoth gathering in favour of SAD-BJP candidate for Patiala bi poll Mr. Bhagwan Das Juneja, Mr. Badal said that Shiromani Akali Dal has opted Mr. Juneja as party candidate for his services to the society. He said that similar to Prime Minister Mr. Narinder Modi, Mr. Juneja has also started his career from a tea stall and reached the heights but never left any opportunity to serve the society. He said that one could easily see the trees planted for environment conservation and benches installed beneath these trees by Mr. Juneja for common people to enjoy the nature. He said that even the kids of the city were aware of the long list of contributions made by Mr. Juneja in social welfare.

Drawing a comparison between SAD-BJP candidate and Congress candidate, Mr. Badal said that on one hand alliance has opted for a candidate who is from the people and for the people, and on other hand Congress candidate is from a Maharaja family which is accessible to common people only during polls. Taking a dig at Captain Amrinder Singh, Mr. Badal said that people of Amritsar were repenting on their decision as Maharaja Sahib went to city only once after winning the parliamentary election. He said that people of Amritsar were not aware of Amrinder’s real face but Patialvis have witnessed this time and again. Mr. Badal said, “I am quite sure that amid this hot weather people of Patiala are going to miss Amrinder even during election campaign.”

Mr. Badal also appealed the voters of Patiala to question Mrs. Parneet Kaur that why she failed to bring any project or scheme during 10 years long Congress led UPA regime for the development of patiala despite being minister in the government. Mr. Badal said that Mrs. Parneet Kaur never bothered for the development of Patiala otherwise it could be an easy task for her.

Thanking the gathering for making the rally a grand success, Mr. Bhagwan Das Juneja said that working for social cause was always his passion and victory in this poll would strengthen him to contribute in social works more effectively. He said that he has decided to fight this bi poll as he has many dreams for the development of the Patiala city which could be fulfilled only after becoming a part of SAD-BJP government. He appealed the voters of Patiala to vote for SAD-BJP to ensure the speedy development of the city.

Meanwhile, the entire leadership of SAD-BJP from Patiala in their speeches pledged from the rally stage that they would turn every stone to ensure historic victory of Mr. Juneja. The leadership in their speeches also appealed the voters of the Patiala to use this bi poll as an opportunity to elect an honest and dedicated social worker as their representative in SAD-BJP government.

On this occasion, Mr. Harpal Juneja, treasurer Youth Akali Dal and Mr. Harmeet Singh Pathanmajra, president Youth Akali Dal Patiala honored Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal with a sword and siropa. Earlier, Mr. Juneja accompanied by Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal, Mr. Sikander Singh Maluka, Mr. Surjit Singh Rakhra and Mr. N.K. Sharma filed his nomination as Shiromani Akali Dal candidate in the office of SDM Gurpal Singh Chehal.

Mr. Sikander Singh Maluka, Mr. Surjit Singh Rakhra and Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema also addressed the rally.....

Chandigarh, July 31:

The Punjab Congress President, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa, today said that apparently ditched by the Narendra Modi government at the centre, the ruling Akali Dal leaders had started pouring venom on their alliance partner ministers from the Bharatiya Janata Party who had exhibited some guts to by articulating the concerns of the trade and industry in the state.

“It is interesting that the Akali Dal has started teaching coalition dharma to Local Bodies Minister Mr Anil Joshi and his colleagues. It is clear that the Akali leaders are proverbially out to thrash their alliance partners but would not allow them to even cry. It is strange that the BJP, despite being in power at the centre, is tolerating such humiliating behaviour from the Akali colleagues”, he said in a statement.

The PPCC chief asserted the long term focus of the so called social engineering experiment of fielding Hindu candidates adopted by the Shiromani Akali Dal President and the Deputy Chief Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal was to make inroads in what is perceived as the traditional support base of the BJP in the urban areas. The latest experiment had been done in Patiala from where the Akali Dal earlier used to put up the candidate from the urban Sikh communities. It was part of the design of the Akali Dal leadership to contest the elections in future at its own in case such an eventuality arises.

Referring to the high hopes of the Chief Minister, Mr Parkash Singh Badal, on the NDA government, he said the Modi government had dumped the Akali Dal by not giving any special grant or concession to Punjab in its maiden budget presented by the Finance Minister, Mr Arun Jaitley, who had faced humiliating defeat in the Lok Sabha election from Amritsar and had seen through the reality of situation in this state where the people were filled up with anger against this government.

The second major issue on which Mr Badal felt slighted at the attitude of the NDA government was the formation of the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee on which the Union Home Minister Mr Rajnath Singh had refused to intervene as that would have amounted to undermining the centre-state relations. The issue was now in judicial domain with the Haryana action having been challenged in the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Mr Badal was now desperate on this issue.

He pointed out that a section of the Sikhs had taken strong exception to the ads being inserted by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee thereby appealing to the people to adhere to the edicts issued from Akal Takht which was unprecedented. He reminded the SGPC chief, Mr Avtar Singh Makkar, that it was Mr Badal who had violated the Akal Takht Hukamnama in December, 1998 and it was then that the slogan ‘Akal Takht mahaan hai, Sikh Panth di shaan hai’ was raised by Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Tohra.

He said it was now for the BJP to decide whether the party wanted to face the indignities heaped upon it by the Akali Dal out of frustration under the changing situation or charter its own independent course as the Akali Dal had already planned its strategy to confront such a situation.....

Chandigarh, July 30: Victim of Ludhiana’s land mafia and lower rung police officials, the 66 years old NRI Joginder Kaur Sandhu today sought justice from chief minister Prakash Singh Badal and deputy CM Sukhbir Badal through media. Forced to take extreme step of committing suicide if her issues are not resolved, Sandhu has requested the CM and deputy CM to intervene.
Addressing media persons at the Press Club, Sandhu presented her documents that are proof of her tale of woes and 14 false cases registered against her in past 10 years. Her tears exposed the arrangements for Punjabi NRIs, highlighted the insecure aspects of their properties’ disputes and women security. Her tale mirrored actual status of special NRI police wings and NRI Commission of the state government. It highlighted the face of that Punjab police which can arrest owner of a house for occupying her own house and leave her to rot in jail.
It is perfect blend of false claims wherein an NRI, though in India, has been shown to be abroad and booked in case of human trafficking, wherein false evidences and witnesses have been created. Her tale exposed the strong police force that has ability to defy orders of seniors and reject the investigation reports at lower level. It has reflections of an NRI Commission that can show a person seated opposite as being lodged in jail. This is what Joginder Kaur Sandhu has been facing since the year 2004.
14 cases were registered against her but in all the cases police and land mafia nexus has fallen flat and has been proven wrong. Despite this, she is yet to get justice. Peeved as the working of police and administration, Sandhu today said that she had no way out but to commit suicide. “The CM, deputy CM, NRI Affairs’ minister and DGP Punjab would be responsible for my death, who have been unable to put a full stop on its goons in khakhi,” she said appealing the NRI fraternity to never invest in Punjab or leave behind their property, if they loved their lives.
An NRI from France, Sandhu said that she owns ancestral property in Ludhiana, which has now become a bane for her family. Since the police patronized land mafia started eyeing her property, she made efforts to save her land in 2004 and hence could not return to France till date. “The high-handedness which started with the government of Captain Amarinder Singh reached new heights during the regime of SAD-BJP government. The Ludhiana police alone registered nine fake cases against me. When these cases started falling apart in court, the gang got more false cases registered against me at Hoshiarpur, Ropar, Jalandhar, Muktsar and Jagadhri,” she said.
Stating instance of the case registered against her at Jagadhri, Sandhu said that Haryana police was far more humanitarian than its Punjab counterpart. “The Haryana DGP S N Vashisht gave me justice, while Punjab government has driven me to contemplate suicide than live more to fight,” she said.
She added that the land mafia leaders are SHO Rajesh Kumar, DSP Gurpreet Kaur Purewal and so-called financer Jaswinder Singh Jassi. These people got 10 false cases registered against her and all fell flat.
Sandhu said that Jassi and his companions also left no stone unturned to misguide the court using police as a tool. The person named Vikramjit Singh, who claimed to not know Jassi at all, is in fact his brother-in-law. “The fake dealing of my house has been done in name of Vikramjit Singh. Further Vikramjit has given power of attorney to Jassi on a Rs 100 stamp. Despite this Jassi claimed before court that he was not related to Vikramjit Singh,” she said presenting documents that proved that Jassi and Vikramjit Singh are relatives.
Sandhu added that despite the an IG and three SSPs giving clean chit to her, cases were registered against her. When this gang started getting caught in its own net, on July 4, 2013 a case was registered against her at Muktsar and on July 6, 2013 another case was registered against her at Jagadhri. “I had never seen Muktsar or Jagadhri. With the due course of time, both the cases were proved false,” she said.
She added that complainant Rajinder Singh in the Muktsar case was a relative of DSP Purewal. She said that a member of this group Kamaljit Kaur has a case registered against her under section 420/120B who has got false cases registered against Sandhu at Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur and Kapurthala. But she has not been arrested yet. Sandhu showed the affidavit of Kamaljit kaur wherein she had accepted of lying and has accepted owing Rs 3.82 lacs towards Joginder Kaur. When Kalamjit Kaur felt lost, she gave this affidavit on September 25.
NRI Commission:
Raising questions over the working of NRI Commission, Joginder Kaur said that during this entire decade long battle she did not enter into any compromise or agreement with the accused. “Either I have been acquitted or the cases registered against me have been cancelled,” she said. Showing records procured through RTI from the NRI Commission she said that documents show she had made compromises and agreements. In one of the cases she has been shown locked in a jail.
“When I approached the NRI Commission and said that I was sitting right in front of them, whereas they have shown me to be in jail, they said that there must have a mistake in writing. They refused to comment on the compromises and agreements shown in my name,” she added.
No faith in Punjab govt
Sandhu said that she has lost all the faith in government system. From the Punjab government to police to NRI Commission, all have proven to be worthless. She added that in the present system there were bleak chances of her social respect being restored and of finding a way out of the mess. She said that while her family waited for her in France, she was sweating it out in legal battle here.
This is how the property was taken over
Sandhu belongs to Hoshiarpur district, went abroad in 1972 and later her family settled in France in 1984. During this time period, she bought two houses (number 725 and 725/1) at Punjab Mata Nagar, on Pakhowal Road at Ludhiana. She rented above two storeys of one of these houses.
In 2004, during her visit to India, she faced an emergency and borrowed Rs 2 lakh loan for month from a financer Jaswinder Jassi from Vishal Nagar Ludhiana and signed some documents as guarantee against loan. She paid back the entire loan in time.
But next day on December 13, 2004 her house was looted on gunpoint. The accused took away Rs 3.42 cash, 16 tolas gold and a mobile phone set. “As per rules, an FIR was to be lodged at the Model Town police station, but SHO Rajesh Kumar refused to do the same. Due to this incident, I had to cancel my ticket to France and till date I have not been able to go to France permanently,” she said.
During this time, she held Sri Akhand Sahib path in her house. She asked the priests to start the path in morning and left house in care of a servant. At night she went to Delhi airport.
Thinking that she had gone back to France land mafia illegally took possession of house and even threw out the belongings of tenants. "Next day early morning Sikh priests reached my house to start the path. Model town police station SHO Rajesh Kumar arrested the priests for trespassing and put them in lock up,” she added.
Numerous cases have been registered against her since then in which she has either been acquitted or the FIRs have been cancelled against her.
Sandhu said she will fight till her last breath to get justice and would be forced to commit suicide if her problems went unaddressed.....

Ferozepur, July 30: The pass out education standard can be well imagined from 26 per cent teaching and 36 per cent non-teaching posts lying vacant in education department in Punjab.
On the one hand, test passed unemployed teachers are crying for jobs whereas on the other hand, 26 percent posts of teaching staff are lying vacant in government primary, middle, high and senior secondary schools.
Similarly, 36 per cent seats of non-teaching staff are lying vacant of the category of class IV, clerk, assistants and senior clerks.
The shortage of both the categories are badly affecting the education system in the state.

They further informed that in middle, high and senior secondary schools, against 76,833 posts, 21,217, say about 28 per cent posts are lying vacant.
Giving a proposal to the Punjab Government, the Punjab Education Reforms Committee members said, in case the JBT qualified teachers in primary schools, master cadre in lecturer cadre or headmaster or lecturer and headmaster to principal cadre and class-2 to class-1 are promoted in all categories, the problem of filling up the vacant posts would be solved and the promoted teachers will have feeling of higher responsibility.
Further, the vacant posts in the primary cadre can be filled through recruitment.
The Committee also demanded from the Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister that in case the government wants to upgrade the standard of education in Punjab in real sense, then the process of filling up the vacant posts of teaching and non-teaching staff should be started immediately. While these arrangements will bring efficiency in the working of the education department, the unemployed qualified teachers would also get the opportunity to get the jobs.

Chandigarh, July 30: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today advised Local Bodies Minister Anil Joshi not to play politics on the issue of input tax credit (ITC) besides urging BJP party president Kamal Sharma to direct Joshi not to flout the principles of coalition ‘dharma’ as well as collective responsibility of the State cabinet.
In a statement here, SAD general secretary and party core committee member Mr Maheshinder Singh Grewal said it was shocking as well as unacceptable for Mr Anil Joshi to issue ultimatums threatening that he would lead an agitation in case an amendment made in the VAT Act was not revoked immediately. “This was most surprising considering the fact that Mr Joshi participated in the cabinet meeting held in October 2013 in which it was decided to amend section 13(1) of the VAT Act which provided that ITC would not be available unless such goods were sold or used in the manufacture or processing of goods meant for sale in the State”.
Mr Grewal said from this it was clear that Mr Anil Joshi was part and parcel of the decision to impose ITC on stocks and even ratified it not only in the cabinet but also during the budget session of the Vidhan Sabha when the amendment was taken up for consideration.
The senior akali leader said all ministers needed to practise restraint and adhere to the principles of coalition dharna and collective responsibility. “This means that all decisions taken collectively should be owned by everyone and no one minister should try to project that he was not part of the decision making process”, he added.
Speaking on the issue of ITC, the SAD leader said the SAD-BJP government believed in taking feedback from the people and reacting on it. “It is based on this feedback which was given to Deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal by various trader groups that it was decided to roll back ITC on stocks”, he said adding former minister and senior BJP leader Manoranjan Kalia had also made a plea in this regard to the Deputy CM.
Mr Grewal said the fundamental idea behind amending the VAT Act earlier was to control evasion of taxes. “There was feedback that against the total of 2.49 lakh registered traders, 1063 traders were paying 85 % of the total tax. Also total of only 3,000 dealers were paying 90 % tax collected by the state. As many as 1.44 lakh dealers did not pay any tax”.
The SAD leader said though the decision to amend the VAT Act was done to streamline tax collection and control evasion, some practical difficulties were reported by the traders due to which the decision was rolled back. “Like the earlier decision to amend the VAT Act which was taken following feedback from everyone, the decision to withdraw the amendment is also part of this process”, he said while urging BJP president Kamal Sharma to apprise BJP ministers that they should not try to project that they are not part of the collective decision making process. ....

Patiala, July 30 : The Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP alliance has a history of winning the bye polls even during the tenure of the Congress government and this time too it will create history by winning the Patiala seat. This was stated by Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema the SAD Secretary, Spokesman and Punjab Education Minister and Mr. Surjit Singh Rakhra member PAC of the SAD and Punjab Water Supply and Sanitation Minister here today.
Addressing the first ever meeting of the prominent leaders of SAD-BJP alliance in favour of Mr. Bhagwan Dass Juneja here today, both the leaders said that whenever any bye poll was held in the state it the alliance had won it the maximum number of times whether it was in Gidderbaha, Ajnala, Moga, Dasuya or any other election. They said that history would be created this time in this royal city. They said that Congress won’t be able to match the aggressive campaign of the SAD-BJP alliance and would face a crushing defeat in this election.
They said reminded the people that this style of campaigning had led to win on three seat for the SAD in Delhi Assembly elections besides DSGMC elections too and this time it is election in their own state. Lashing out at Congress they said that the illusion of the Former Chief Minister that the Patialvis always vote for a particular family would also be proved wrong in this election. Both the leaders urged the SAD-BJP leaders to take on their responsibilities.
Addressing the gathering Mr. Bhagwan Dass Juneja said that this time it is a contest between a common man and a royal family. Common man is always there to serve the people whereas royal family is inapproachable so the people would vote for the comman man only. On the occasion Mr. Raj Khurana former MLA said that the BJP has deputed senior leader and Health Minister Mr. Surjit Kumar Jiyani as the Convener from the BJP side.
Prominent those present on the occasion included Prof. Kirpal Singh Badungar, Former Minister Surjit Singh Kohli, Harmel Singh Tohra, Ajiab Singh Mukhmailpur, Mayor Amarinder Singh Bajaj, Deepinder Singh Dhillon, former MLA Jasjit Singh Bunny, Indermohan Singh Bajaj, Faujinder Singh Mukhmailpur, Harmeet Singh Pathanmajra, SGPC member Surjit Singh Garhi, Jasmer Singh Lachru, Sawinder Singh Sabharwal, Chairman Jaspal Singh Kalyan, Balwinder Singh Barsat, Surinder Singh Pehalwan, Harinderpal Singh Tohra, Former Mayors Ajitpal Singh Kohli, Jaspal Singh Pradhan, Vishnu Sharma besides others.
