New Delhi, November 23 :The Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal, has said that the state government plans to start group farming by stitching together cooperatives of small farmers to make them self-dependent and increase their income. The government is also working on a mechanism to save the farmers from the menace of distress sale.
He was speaking at the inaugural function of the four-day CII Agro Tech 2014 which was jointly inaugurated at Chandigarh today by Manohar Lal, the Punjab Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal, and Premier of Saskatchewan, Canada, Bard Wall. He asked the debt-ridden marginal farmers to take to horticulture and start growing flowers, fruits,
medicinal plants and vegetables besides dairy farming which would help them improve their financial condition.
The Chief Minister said that the Haryana Government had lined up plans to launch Soil Health Cards for farmers under which cheap and high-yielding seeds would be provided. The country needs second Green Revolution to promote farming but it can be made possible only with the help of farmers, farm-related industries and farm scientists. There is need for coordination between the traditional and new farming techniques to fetch the farmers, better price for their produce, and promote farming.
Agriculture constitutes the backbone of the economies of both Haryana and Punjab. There is need to step up agricultural production, especially due to the fact that small farmers depend solely on farming and the prices of agricultural products have been globalized. The great Deen Dayal Upadhyay said that if farming, industry, transport, trade and social services advanced, the society would be a happy place to live in, and the nation would make progress, he added.
Manohar Lal said that the productive capacity of land posed a challenge because chemical fertilizers were being used which, if used for long period of time, affected productivity. One should prefer organic manure to fight this problem. The water level has been depleting due to the traditional methods of irrigation which should be replaced with such new methods as drip irrigation and fountain irrigation. “Today, climate change also affects farming. We need to pay attention to water management and, in this case, the private sector should come forward and play a role”, he said.

The Chief Minister said that since the stock of agricultural land was getting depleted by the day due to increased urbanization and industrialization, dense farming should be promoted by using newtechniques. Also, laboratories should be set up and training programmes organized for farmers in which the farm universities of both Haryana and Punjab can play a great role. Besides, both states should promote dairy farming. The Haryana Government stands committed to providing storage facility to farmers and the private sector can play a big role in processing and storage.

Speaking on the occasion, the Punjab Chief Minister said that there are two natural resources in agriculture; water and land. The new Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is very well aware of the problems faced by the farmers. It is the right time for finding a solution to their problems. Haryana and Punjab had the oldest canals in the country and if their condition is improved, the production of food grains could beincreased by 20 per cent. The marketing system is good in both states, he added.
The Premier of Saskatchewan, Canada, Bard Wall and Secretary, Union Ministry of Agriculture, Ashish Bahuguna, expressed their views. CII President, Ajay S. Shriram, Chairman, CII Agro Tech 2014, Pawan Goenka, Director General, Confederation of Indian Industry, Chandrajit Banerjee, Chairman, CII Northern Region, Zubin Irani also spoke on the occasion. Chairman, CII National Council on Agriculture, Salil Singhal, presented the vote of thanks.
Manohar Lal, Badal and Bard Wall also released the Theme Paper of CII Agro Tech-2014. Later, Manohar Lal also inaugurated the Haryana Pavilion at the CII AgroTech-2014.....

Ludhiana, November 23: Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Manish Tewari today expressed concern over the National Democratic Alliance government’s attempts to fiddle with the education curriculum in the country.
He said, the current curriculum had evolved over a period of several decades incorporating all the facets of Indian, history and culture concerning all sections of the people. “Any attempt aimed at to redraw and redraft it with a particular slant will be unfortunate and may prove counterproductive”, he said during an informal conversation with reporters after inaugurating a specially built room in a local school constructed from the grant provided by him from his MPLAD fund during his tenure as Ludhiana MP.
Tewari maintained that the NDA government at the centre should now start delivering on the promises it has made to the people during the elections. He claimed that the NDA was till now carrying forward only the development agenda set and pursued by the UPA during the previous ten years. “Whether it is about the foreign policy, the economic policy or the domestic issues, the NDA is yet to spell out as what new has it to offer”, he said.
Among others present on the occasion included Pawan Dewan, Gurmail Pehalwan, Navneesh Malhotra, Palwinder Taggar, Sunny Kainth, Rohit Pahwa, Principal Poonam, Jaswinder Kaur, Harmeet Kaur, Gurmeet Kaur, Santosh Devi, Harsimran Kaur, MC Gurpreet Singh Khurana, Ex-MC OP Rattra.....

Slams family rule of Badals, BJP’s ideology,cautions against the designs of the RSS

Amritsar : Radical Sikh leaders join hands to revive United Akali Dal

Amritsar,November 22,2014 :(Courtesy HT by Harkirat singh ):Radical elements in the Sikh Panth, opposed to the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), have joined hands to form yet another Akali party -- the United Akali Dal (UAD).

Amritsar,November 22,2014 :(Courtesy HT by Harkirat singh ):Radical elements in the Sikh Panth, opposed to the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), have joined hands to form yet another Akali party -- the United Akali Dal (UAD).

The formal declaration of the formation of the UAD was made here on Saturday following a convention of the United Sikh Movement, a socio-religious group that had been in existence for the past two years. The group was formed by Bhai Mokhan Singh, a member of the Mehta-based seminary, the Damdami Taksal, with a view to fighting drug addiction and preventing Sikh youth from cutting their hair short.

The convention commenced with the announcement that henceforth the United Sikh Movement would cease to exist. Its place will now be taken by the UAD, a secular political party belonging to all Punjabis.

While affixing the word ‘United’ to the new party, the main aim of the leadership was to get all Akali leaders opposed to the Badal faction, on a single platform. However, the leaders of the new party failed to put up a united political front of Sikh leaders that would have some strength to take on chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and his Akali party.

This desire was expressed by Bhai Mokham Singh when he told the media, “We had invited all (anti-Badal Akalis) to the convention. But for reasons best known to them, they chose to stay away.”

The prominent Akali splinter groups that stayed away included SAD (Longowal) of the Barnalas, SAD (Amritsar) of Simranjit Singh Mann, SAD (1920) of Ravi Inder Singh, SAD (Panj Pardhani) of Daljit Singh Bittu and SAD (Delhi) of Paramjit Singh Sarna. Even the prominent radical group, the Dal Khalsa, stayed away.

Demand for federal structure

Despite the presence of radical elements in the convention, including former militants like Wassan Singh Zaffarwal, the UAD leadership declared that it would have nothing to do with the demand for Khalistan.
On the contrary, in its very first resolution passed at the convention, it demanded “an autonomous region for the Sikhs, where the community could experience freedom” but within India. The demand was akin to those enshrined in the numerous ‘Anandpur Sahib Resolutions’ which were passed in the seventies by the SAD.

Calling for a federal structure, the resolution demanded devolution of powers from the union to the states. While the union government should have full control over matters like defence, railways, foreign affairs and finance, the other departments, including agriculture and food, should be handed over to states, it said.

Zaffarwal, one of the five militants to have signed the declaration for Khalistan at the Akal Takht in 1996, when questioned, said, “Times have changed, now this demand has no relevance.”

Like the ruling SAD, the new party demanded that Chandigarh and all Punjabi-speaking areas of adjoining states be handed over to Punjab. The demand also included giving Punjab its rightful share in the river waters.

Slams family rule of Badals, BJP’s ideology

The new party, through another resolution, slammed the family rule by the Badal clan and accused him and his relatives of amassing wealth through corrupt means. The resolution also claimed that under the Badals, traditional Akali leaders, many of whom had gone to jail during the ‘dharam yudh morcha’ in the eighties, had been eased out and corrupt leaders had now taken centre stage. The resolution also held the state government responsible for drug smuggling into the state.

The resolution also stated that the Congress was no better than the SAD (Badal) and held the party responsible for Operation Bluestar and the anti-Sikh riots of 1984. It demanded that the Modi government bring a resolution in Parliament seeking forgiveness for the two incidents.

Another resolution warned the Sikhs that they remain alert against the designs of the RSS, which is trying to spread its wings in Punjab.

Party organisational structure

For the smooth running of the party, a 25-member adhoc coordination committee was formed with Bhai Mokham Singh as its convener, Gurdeep Singh Bathinda as secretary and Bhagwan Singh as chief adviser.

The prominent members in the ad hoc committee include Zaffarwal, Baljit Singh Daduwal, the Sikh preacher from Malwa, and Pritam Kaur, widow of Rashpal Singh, a former personal assistant of the slain Damdami Taksal chief Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

The convention also demanded that all cases registered by the government against Daduwal be withdrawn. The first meeting of the party will be held on January 1, 2015 at Chandigarh in which members of the working committee of the party along with district-level office-bearers will be announced.....

Rs. 588 Crore bills of numerous completed works were due by October 28: Punjab Govt. admits

Chandigarh, November 22 (Courtesy: HT) : Punjab’s finance department has come in for flak from the judiciary for “mindless breaches” and hiding its inertia by wearing “impenetrable apparel”.
In a damning dossier about the fiscal mismanagement of the Parkash Singh Badal government and the finance department babus “hiding behind a cloak of intransigence (stubbornness)”, the Punjab and Haryana high court has given a dressing-down to the state government in a recent ruling pertaining to non-payment for the works completed by contractors.
As the government has admitted that Rs. 588-crore bills of numerous completed works were due by October 28, and sought six months to clear this liability on the basis of first considering the oldest completed works, justice K Kannan of the high court observed: “…if we have a state going on an affidavit that more than Rs. 575 crore are still due for works completed… where amounts are bound to be released, it only betrays a sorry state of affairs…”
In response to court directions, principal secretary (finance) Vini Mahajan had filed an affidavit and justice Kannan observed that “it becomes essential to paraphrase the affidavit” to bring home the extent of admission made regarding the liabilities.
Nearly 130 writ petitions were filed by various persons to whom contracts of public works had been awarded by the state. The petitioners contend that the works had been completed as envisaged, but the payments, as provided by the terms of the contract, had not been made, according to the November 5 ruling of justice Kannan.
In view of this ruling, the finance department on November 17 instructed all financial commissioners, principal secretaries and administrative secretaries to read this ruling for compliance. The department has sought in a week information of works completed and partially completed so that a schedule of payments, as directed by the court, can be chalked out, which will be put on the department website for transparency.
Meanwhile, the government has advised its departments to withhold fresh tendering/allotment of works other than substantially centrally/externally funded projects, till the pending liabilities have been fully cleared. The works would be allotted only after arranging necessary expenditure sanction from the department of finance.
Referring to the affidavit, justice Kannan observed: “Under normal circumstances, it should have been possible for me to pull the curtains down after taking on file the affidavit of the principal secretary (finance).”
The ruling reads: “There have been assurances galore ... and there have been mindless breaches. There is invariably a gaping hole in the cauldron held to collect the promises of the state and they drop by unattended, as forgotten undertakings, forcing the courts to issue directions yet again. It calls for serious action if the breaches are contumacious (lacking respect for authority).”
“Every contract that is completed by one party,” the court pointed out, “and when there is a failure by the state to pay what is obligated under the terms, there is clearly an illustration of hiding behind a cloak of intransigence; wearing an apparel that is impenetrable…This could lead to abuse of power.”
Stating that there must be a case for identifying “persons responsible for causing delay for making payments,” justice Kannan quoting from the Arthshastra, reminded the Badal government: “All state activities depend first on the treasury. Therefore, a king shall devote his best attention to it.” ....

Chandigarh, Novemebr 22 (Courtesy: HT): Reacting to BJP leader Navjot Singh Sidhu's frequent outbursts against the Shiromani Akali Dal leadership, Istri Akali Dal president and MLA Bibi Jagir Kaur on Saturday said he had no moral right to comment on the prospects of the SAD-BJP ties since he had backstabbed his own party.
“He showed his back to his party at a time when he should have stood behind it like a rock and help senior leader Arun Jaitley win with a thumping majority. Jaitley's win would have raised the stock of both the alliance partners at the Centre,” she commented, while responding to media queries at Gurdwara Kalgidhar where she attended a meeting of party office-bearers and members.
She said a leader of the stature of chief minister Parkash Singh Badal needs not to respond to people like Sidhu. She claimed that there was no rift in the alliance partners and they would contest the local bodies elections together.
Jagir Kaur, who was the president of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, said the confusion over dates of Gurpurb arose when the original Nanakshahi calendar was amended. She endorsed the views of Akal Takht jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh that a panel of experts should resolve the issue.
"The controversy should be put to rest as soon as possible to avoid further confusion," she added.
Jagir Kaur said organisational set-up of the women's wing would be declared by the end of this month. There was no plan to divide the wing in separate zones like the youth Akali Dal, she claimed.
"The Istri Akali Dal would be organised on the pattern of Shiromani Akali Dal. We aim to reach every household. If women are to seek more representation in the elected bodies, they would have to first organise themselves at the grassroots level,” she said. ....

Amritsar, November 22: Congress Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha and local MP Capt Amarinder Singh today offered to provide substantial amount of money from his Local Area Development Fund for the garbage disposal and treatment plant if the Punjab government comes out with some concrete proposal for a permanent solution to solve the problem in the holy city.

In a statement issued here today, Capt Amarinder said, the expenditure involved in setting up a treatment plant is too huge to be sufficed by the MPLAD fund, but he can still make a substantial contribution from Rs 5 crores granted to the MP every year in case the state government takes an initiative.

He suggested since the Punjab government was almost bankrupt and had no money of its own, the MPs across the state could come forward to provide substantial grants in their respective areas so that the garbage disposal problems is solved permanently.

The former Chief Minister said, he will take up the matter with the central government particularly the Union Urban Development Ministry and expressed confidence of getting substantial grants for this purpose with the MPs’ initiatives.

He pointed out, there was no reason why the central and state governments should not pool in their resources for cleaning of the cities particularly when they were so vigorously campaigning for the “Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan”.

Talking specifically about the Bagtanwala garbage dump in Amritsar, Capt Amarinder said, he was closely following the matter at various levels. He said, he had made it a priority that the garbage disposal in the holy city is done in a clean, sophisticated and hygienic manner. “I hope to see Amritsar as a model city for whole of Punjab in handling its waste and garbage”, he said.....

New Delhi, November 22: The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has demanded from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for changing the name of Aurangzeb road in Delhi after ninth Guru Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib.
DSGMC President Manjit Singh GK asked Modi that Sikh community across the globe wants this and naming road after the ninth Guru would be a befitting tribute to the ninth Guru who chooses to lay his life for the cause of humanity.
Guru Tegh Bahadur was martyred in Chandni Chownk area of Delhi on the orders of then Mughal ruler Aurangzeb in the November month of 1675. Guru Ji’s martyrdom day falls on 24 November, (Monday).
It has been demanded by GK that Guru Ji’s martyrdom day be declared a gazetted holiday across the country, so that message of universal brotherhood given by Guru Ji reaches every corner of the country. “With BJP led national democratic alliance leading Government of India aspirations of Sikh community would be fulfilled,” said Manjit Singh GK. A petition is also being signed online for declaring the road name of Guru Ji’s name.
The DSGMC has also written a letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making announcement of declaring a gazetted holiday to mark the martyrdom day and renaming of the Aurangzeb road after the ninth Guru.

He said that Mughal ruler Aurangzeb was a cruel ruler, and was not cruel to the Hindus and Sikhs but has been ruthless to Muslims also. “So a public place named after Aurangzeb in the secular India is not appropriate,” said Sirsa. ....

Ferozepur, November 22: Sri Swami Kundalini Yogi Sesha Bhattar Sudershancharya, Director Nature Cure Hospital, Hyderabad, 74 years, was here in Ferozepur today to conduct Seminar & Training Workshop on Pranayama & Naturopathy on Nov. 22 & 23 at Shitla Mandi, Ferozepur Cantt.
Swami acquired secret knowledge about Pranayama from Brindavan from his guru - Devraha Baba known as ageless Yogi with a secular image, who preached harmony between religious communities. He became a Kundalini Yogi after 15 years of penance in the Himalayas.
Swamji – the cave man has light to spread and is on a unique mission to spread real philosophy and set up a yogic philosophical institution to impart education. He is also known Tibetan Herbal therapist who mastered the art of diagnosing several ailments by feeling the pulse and administrating his unique for of treatment by herbs from Himalayas. He has dedicated his life to the development and propagation of Yoga which itself is a science that cuts across all barriers between human being and address itself to entire humanity.
Addressing the media persons at Press Club, Swami ji said in his bold and authoritative voice, Pranayama is not only physical but also spiritual.
Without naming any other Yogi, he said, Yoga has become a business for minting money in the name of Indian philosophy and culture but we have to adopt its traditional ancient culture.
He said, yoga is the mixture of soul, god and the yoga only with right techniques is effective. First, we should set our mind which is the driving force behind our all activities. Mind and environment are the causes for chronic diseases in our body and it is necessary to think over as to how to come out of it. It is unfortunate for present India that lust for name, fame and money is making the yoga impure.
Talking about the preaching and philosophy, Swami ji said, both are different, who study himself is a philosopher while preacher is to teach only.
Expressing his concern as to why the India becoming unpleasant, Sawmi said, the lust, rage, greed, attachment and ego are not the key to success in life and subdue these five inner thieves and render them useless. Adopt nice things in life and live with love & sacrifice by making postures of ancient Yoga in our body, said Swami ji, giving a message to the society.

Chandigarh, November 22: To bail out the beleaguered peasantry of agrarian states of Punjab and Haryana from the present crisis, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal urged the Union Government that for deciding the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of any crop the Swaminathan’s Formula must be implemented.
Disclosing this here today a spokesperson of the Chief Minister’s office said that Mr. Badal was addressing the inaugural session of the CII Agro Tech 2014, India’s premier biennial agro technology and business fair here in sector 17, where he shared the dais with the Chief Minister of Haryana Mr. Manohar Lal Khattar and the Premier of Saskatchewan, Canada Mr. Brad Wall.
Pleading the case of implementing Swaminathan’s formula (Cost + 50% profit), Mr. Badal said that it was one of the viable solution to stabilize the present crisis in agriculture economy of the country. Moreover, it was also the major issue of NDA’s agenda. Expressing full faith and confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister said that it was the right time now when this formula could be implemented under the stewardship of Mr. Modi.
He further said that the Punjab, which was known as the ‘Granary of India’ with just 1.5% of the country’s total land, had always ensured India’s food security by producing almost 50% of the total food grains. He said that Punjab’s farmers have a record of pulling the country out of the era of food shortages. But in this process, they have sacrificed their vital natural resources like ground water and soil fertility that resulted in the reduction of farm income substantially. He also pointed out that the agriculture crisis in Punjab was very acute as presently farmers were under heavy debt of Rs.30, 000 Crore.
Advocating for setting up of separate union budget for agriculture like railway budget, Mr. Badal said that this crisis was becoming more and more serious with each passing day, as growth in agriculture was not keeping pace with other sectors of economy, adding Mr. Badal said that nearly 60% of country’s population was still dependent on agriculture but its contribution to GDP has dropped to 17% that was earlier 65% in 1965-66. He further said that the debt burden on the farmers was on rise consistently compelling them to end their lives.
Seeking the central assistance for Agriculture research programme and diversification, the Chief Minister suggested that the GoI should also invest in agricultural research and mechanization development, besides Diversification, which was the major need of the hour and could only be made successful with necessary government’s support, especially in the progressive states like Punjab and Haryana. In Agro-industry sector fruit, vegetables and food processing, could also generate profit through value addition strategy but GoI must ensure proper marketing facility first.
He congratulated the CII for this noble venture and said that Agro Tech had emerged as an ideal platform for all the stakeholders in the sector to come together and deliberate upon the latest in Agriculture, in India and abroad.
On this occasion Mr. Badal also released the theme paper of CII Agro Tech 2014, inaugurated exhibition and took a round of the exhibition along with the Chief Minister of Haryana Mr. Manohar Lal Khattar and the Premier of Saskatchewan, Canada Mr. Brad Wall.
In his address the Premier of Saskatchewan (Canada) Mr. Brad Wall said that he had series of talks with the Chief Ministers and Officers of both Punjab and Haryana to explore the scope of bilateral cooperation in the agriculture and other sectors. Expressing high hopes in strengthening the relations between two countries he offered full support and cooperation to Punjab for initiating joint ventures in various fields like food technology, food processing, agri Bio-technology, Post-Harvest Management / Handling and Cold chain.....

4-day event will be a convergence point for Indian and international agri community, and will host 9 Concurrent Shows, Kisan Goshthees, International Conferences and Industry roundtables

Will have participation from lakhs of domestic & international farmers and key constituents of agri sector along with 36 international exhibitors & 126 domestic exhibitors

Chandigarh, (Punjab/Haryana), November 22: Parkash Singh Badal, Hon’ble Chief Minister, Government of Punjab while inaugurating the 11th CII Agro Tech 2014, being organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) at Parade Ground, sector 17 here today called on the Centre Government “to fix the Minimum Support Prices of crops like Wheat, paddy etc according to the relative ever rising input costs and implement the recommendations of the Swaminathan Committee while fixing the same, in order to improve the plight the farmers”.

“CII Agro Tech is a tremendous platform to showcase the latest technologies and best practices for the benefit of the farmers”, he said while complementing for putting up a brilliant CII Agro Tech.

“In Punjab alone, farmers are under heavy debt to the tune of Rs 30,000 crores. If the Swaminathan formula is not implemented, there would be more suicides. Further, Agriculture being the backbone of the economy, I would request the Centre to have a separate Budget for agriculture just like the Railways and Defence, which should be discussed and passed”, added Mr Badal.

“Further there is an urgent need to develop and modernize water irrigation facilities like canals, and a need to renew the focus on developing technologies and research. The centre should also fund all the Agri universities that are all financially starved. I would also recommend a concession on loansgiven to small and marginal farmers which should be set at nearly 2% which will help make farming more lucrative and bring latency to the sector.

The farmers of the region (Punjab & Haryana) have contributed a lot to the agriculture sector of the country and now all stakeholders like the centre and state governments and the industry needs to support them in their quest. For long, the farmers of the region have come to the rescue of the country in terms of its food needs and now the central government needs to streamline policies to support the farmers of the region. It is heartening to see the new government at centre having focused policies for agriculture where policies are created for developing the agriculture of the sector today.

“To encourage diversification which would save the burden on soil and water, the centre must start procuring the certain commodities like Maize, pulses, cereals etc for which it has just fixed the MSPs yet”, added the Punjab CM.

Mr Manohar Lal Khattar, Hon’ble Chief Minister, Government of Haryana highlighted that, “If Agriculture progresses, the whole economy will progress; hence it is the time for a second Green Revolution which calls for an urgent cooperation of various stakeholders including the state & central governments, scientists, universities, institutes etc”.

“There is an urgent need to promote agro processing industry and set up the required logistics and supply chain requirement including the cold chains to reduce the burden on soil and also increase the earnings of the farmers”, added Mr Khattar.

“We are planning to launch Krishi Cards and introduce Cold Storages across the state so that the agro processing industry is benefitted. We are also promoting cooperative farming for various small farmers so that they do not have to resort to distress sale and get a profitable price”, he added.

“ The industry, scientists and the government should come together to create better private-public partnerships, develop better warehousing systems and invest in R & D to develop better seeds, fertilizers and techniques with focus on small & marginal farmers to enhance their productivity”, he informed.

“Another big challenge is the depleting water levels in irrigation where diminishing levels are leaving less water for agricultural purposes. Solutions to the same are the utilization of bio-fertilizers and new irrigation techniques like fountain irrigation, drip irrigation which are the need of the hour”, he added.

Mr Ashish Bahuguna, Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India said, I believe that Punjab & Haryana are still the food grain baskets of the country and will continue to be at the forefront of the agri revolution in the times to come. Today the challenges before the Indian agriculture are immense. The farmers in India earn just 1/10th of the total earnings of the non farmers. What is required is to increase the level of income for our farmers through innovative measures. To achieve this, the pattern of agriculture has to change. We have to move towards newer vistas like Horticulture and Animal Husbandry. I am looking forward to receive the gyst of recommendations from the CII, and look forward to work in close cooperation with them, he added.

Mr Brad Wall, Hon’ble Premier of Saskatchewan (Canada) shared that “A lot of opportunities for synchronisation and cooperation in agriculture exist between India, especially North India and Canada. Both the countries have huge research capabilities and can work together in agri R&D for mutual benefit.

“We look forward to partner with India in aspects of research and bringing innovations in Agriculture. Currently we have nearly 43 active agreements in force. University of Saskatchewan is working in close cooperation with the University of Hyderabad to develop nearly 90 varieties of chickpeas. We are also working in sequences of student exchanges and in research & development and will continue to do so in the future as well”, he added.

Complimenting the event he said that CII Agro Tech is an amalgamation of great minds.

Mr Ajay S Shriram, President, CII & Chairman & Sr. Managing Director, DCM Shriram Ltd said, “Today the Indian agriculture has come a long way from the times gone by. Agriculture in India is not anymore about sustenance, but is more about addressing the emerging food needs. Although the farmers are now able to meet growing demands of food, but still structural barriers remain in the growth of the sector. But saying that, there is a renewed optimism with the new government supports agricultural policies. New developments by the government have added a renewed vigour to the sector and have provided a critical opportunity to India to establish itself at the top. But to achieve the same, key barriers need to the executed. Via stronger public-private partnership model, we need to help reduce post-harvest losses and thus rationalise the market.”

“We believe that via streamlined measures by setting up processes, brand building, developing talent, develop agricultural research, scaling innovative solutions, promote mechanization, developing robotics increasing cold storage, research laboratories, promoting venture-capital funding and developing a national agricultural mission that we can achieve the same.”

We believe that the potential of the sector is manifold, and Agro Tech has been successful in establishing itself as a key stakeholder in the development of the sector. By helping to infuse key tech integrities, CII has established a distinctive position in the industry. And the gathering in here is a testimony to the same.”

Dr Pawan Goenka, Chairman, CII Agro Tech 2014 &. said, “Indian agriculture has come a long way since 1960, with the green & white revolution paving the way for greater success of the sector. Emphasising on the need to achieving global competitiveness, he said this is the only way to achieve the desired agri productivity levels in India.

Over the years, CII’s flagship biennial event, Agro Tech has become a much sought after agriculture event across India. This is one of its kind agri show with a large domestic participation and significant international presence, he added.

Mr Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General, Confederation of Indian Industry said, “Today there is an urgent need for stakeholders to create value systems of operations. Via agricultural-industrial partnerships we can take the sector forward. Going forward, CII would push for measures for successful diversification. CII is keen to partner with the states and the private sector for investments. We are happy to have a partnership with Sheckezuan which is critical and carries a deep linkage with us. CII is much eager to adopt some villages in states to develop model villages for dairy production. We are also happy to announce that a Centre for Food & Agriculture is up and running which is working with many states benefitting 10000 farmers across states. The centre identifies value chain to catalyse production in the sector. We are confident that with concentrated efforts from all stakeholders we will achieve great results.”

Mr. Zubin Irani, Chairman, CII Northern Region & President – Building & Industrial Systems (India) United Technologies India Private Limited said, “Today the current developments in the agricultural sector have created a need for strong cooperation between agriculture and the industry. While greater technical innovations have created a robust value system, the need is now to bring rapid and huge investments in the sector along with channelization of distribution mechanisms & logistics, providing support services like marketing & agro business consulting, which will help bring more progress to the sector.”

Mr Salil Singhal, Co Chairman, CII National Council on Agriculture and Chairman & Managing Director, PI Industries Ltd commented, “The sector and the Industry needs to work together to bring more prosperity to the farmers of the country. New-age measures like Animal Husbandry and Food Processing need to be forwarded for the development of the sector. The time has come to go to the next level as it is a period of transformation. Today India has the potential to be the ‘Food Basket of the world’, and all that is needed now is to rethink innovatively to bring prosperity into the sector.”

“We need to come up with avenues that enable ease of doing business viz. a viz the Agricultural sector. The immediate need is for creating proactive administrative and policy making structure to bring more progress to the sector”, he concluded.

Focusing on developing mechanisms which help the farmers restructure their agricultural occupation, this edition of CII Agro Tech will talk about the industry best practices, technologies, latest innovations and strive towards policy changes.

The country’s premier Biennial Agro Technology & Business Fair will in the current edition have a large domestic and international participation including 36 international exhibitors and 126 domestic exhibitors.

Chandigarh/New Delhi, November 22: Nation today recognised Ludhiana as the "Best Emerging City" as leading news magazine "India Today" in its latest survey commissioned by the India Today group last year declared Ludhiana as the "Best Emerging City" in terms of Housing. After receiving this award in New Delhi, Punjab Irrigation Minister Mr Sharanjit Singh Dhillon said that this award reflects the revival of realty sector in state despite global and national depression in the economic scenario.
He said this ranking by India Today group is a slap on the face of Congress leadership that has been crying hoarse about the lack of housing facilities in the state. "This award is a result of innovative steps and pro people policies adopted by Punjab CM Mr Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy CM Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal in boosting the realty sector of Punjab," said Mr Dhillon.
This award was presented by Mr Venkaiah Naidu, Union Minister for Urban Development, Parliamentary Affairs, and Housing and Poverty Alleviation at an award function organised in New Delhi last evening.
Mr Sharanjit Singh Dhillon said that urbanisation was now the top agenda of SAD-BJP government. "This shows the rising importance of the city structure in our politics as urban areas are the engines of economic growth. Ludhiana is not only the financial capital of the state but is also a big investment destination in terms of housing. Our government has already constructed more than 4,000 housing flats for urban poor in different parts of Ludhiana. Besides this, a large number of private players have invested and are still investing in the realty sector in Ludhiana," informed the Minister, who himself is a resident of Ludhiana.
While addressing the awards function, Mr Dhillon raised the issue of our villages also being developed by the NDA government. He requested Mr Venkaiah Naidu to prepare a plan through which the villages of country are developed like the urban cities. "More than 70% of our population lives in villages and the centre government should contribute its share so that the villages can also be given an urban look," he said.
The second edition of India Today's Best Cities of India Report studied 30 capital and metro cities and 20 emerging cities on 12 parameters - overall, economy, housing, transport, public services, healthcare, education, crime and safety, entertainment, environment, investment and cleanliness.....

New Delhi, November 22: Indian women’s National Team made it three out of three in the 3rd SAFF Women’s Football Championship as they made short work of Nepal with a clinical 6-0 win in the final to clinch the crown for the third straight time, here in Islamabad, Pakistan on Friday.This is the first time that India have won on Pakistan soil.
All India Football Federation President Mr. Praful Patel congratulated the victorious Indian team in retaining the Women’s SAFF Championship.
“Congratulations Girls,” he said in his message. “This triumph in Islamabad shows that there’s no dearth of talent as far as Women’s Football in India in concerned. All of you make us proud. Congratulations to all the Players and the Support Staff,” he stated.
AIFF General Secretary Mr. Kushal Das also congratulated the women’s team on the victory. “Keep up the spirit. Congratulations,” he said. “The victory further emphasises AIFF’s keenness to develop Women’s Football in India.”
“The Senior National Women’s Championship conducted earlier this year opened up the pool of talent and the results are evident. We now look forward for Indian Women squads to further make an impact at the AFC level.”
Bala Devi took her tally to 16 goals – the highest scored in a single edition of the championship – finding the net four times with Kamala and Prameshwori Devi also getting on the scoresheet.
Nepal who have been India’s companion in the finals on all three occasions tried to put up a stiff resistance in the opening stages but were breached just after the first quarter with Kamala latching on to a neat pass from Prameshwori to break the deadlock.
Nepal got all their force to man the backline and bottle up Bala in particular. But goal-machine from Manipur soon got on the act with a delectable volley in the 39th minute only to double her tally one minute later. It was 3-0 at halftime.
India showed no mercy on their familiar foes post the breather with the final score reading 6-0. There was no stopping Bala as she completed her hattrick from close range at the start of the second half, also stabbing home her fourth at the death this time from a Premi Devi through ball. In between Bala’s exploits, Prameshwori curled one in from the top of the box.
Just to measure the extent of India’s supremacy in the tournament, the 53rdranked team plundered a total of 36 goals in the five matches they played, conceding only once against Bangladesh.....
