Amritsar, October 22,2014 :Tarun Chugh, the National Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party has urged Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to ask chief parliamentary secretary Avinash Chander to resign from his post since his name has cropped up in the infamous case related to dismissed Punjab Police DSP and druglord Jagdish Bhola.

Chugh said that BJP was committed in its fight against drugs in Punjab and as such feels that Avinash Chander should have resigned on his own by now. If he comes clean after the probe, he can again join the government as a CPS.

The continuation of Avinash Chander, as a CPS in the SAD-BJP government is definitely having an impact on the image of the alliance government and raises doubts about the government's intention to act,he added

Mr Chugh further said that when the ED has summoned the CPS, it can be easily construed that the ED sleuths might have some basic evidence against him. It does not bestow a CPS to appear before the ED time and again for his links with people involved in drug trade especially when the government claims to be fighting a war against drugs.

The BJP has been consistent in its stand against the trade of drugs in Punjab as the party believes that the supply and sale of drugs in the state has dealt a severe blow not only to the youth involved and their families, but also to the economic and culture of the state. The state is getting a bad name in rest of India and across the world.

It would do no harm to the alliance if Avinash Chander is asked to go. Rather, it would strengthen people's belief and confidence in the government as it would send a strong message that the government has will to act against anybody, whosoever he or she may be.

There is no doubt that the state government has fought a war against drugs at all levels and hundreds of people involved in the drug trade have been arrested. The police have made huge seizures. Under such circumstances, if the CM asks Avinash Chander to quit, that would add to the credit of the government.

He referred Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has given a clear indication that high moral standards should be maintained by the elected representatives and people sitting on constitutional posts. As such Avinash Chander needs to be asked to put in his papers.

BJP had hailed the stand of Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal when he had asked Punjab cabinet minister Sarwan Singh Phillaur to quit when the name of his son Damanvir Singh Phillaur had cropped up in the same case.....

Ottawa Civic Hospital confirmed two people have been taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, one with a gunshot wound.


Parliament Hill came under attack today after a man with a rifle shot a soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa, before seizing a car and driving to the doors of Parliament Hill's Centre Block nearby.

MPs and other witnesses reported several shots fired inside Parliament, and a gunman has been confirmed dead inside the building, shot by the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms, according to MPs' eyewitness accounts.

The soldier's condition is not known as this time.

The prime minister was on the Hill at the time of the shooting, but was safely take away. It's believed one suspect is still at large.

--------------------------

Gunman killed at Parliament Hill, other suspects sought

A gunman has been shot and killed inside Parliament Hill’s Centre Block and police are swarming over downtown Ottawa hunting for other possible suspects after several shootings rocked Ottawa on Wednesday morning — including one at the War Memorial that wounded a soldier and another near the Rideau Centre mall.

The War Memorial shooting occurred just before 10 a.m., and the shooter then apparently drove to the gates of Parliament Hill and ran inside the buildings. A witness also reported that another man headed east, potentially in the direction of the Rideau Centre.

Witnesses said 30 to 50 shots were fired inside the Centre Block.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the leaders of the other political parties are all believed to be safe. The prime minister was taken away from Parliament to a secure place, officials said. The Hill was immediately locked down.

The schools and the U.S. Embassy, which is near Parliament Hill, were also locked down.

The caucuses for the Conservative and Liberal and NDP were holding their regular Wednesday meetings when the incident at the Hill happened.

Credit facility can be extended in the existing account if it is being operated satisfactorily” disclosed Isha Kalia.

hub for digital animation and visual effects. Vancouver is home to some of North America’s
most expansive and sophisticated studio facilities, offering over one million square feet of stage
space, equipped with leading-edge technology, digital green/blue screens and all the latest
production equipment.

Chandigarh, October 21: The newly elected 13th legislative assembly of Haryana is a relatively young one, with the youngest just 29.
Nearly half of the 90 legislators elected this time are 50 years old or less. While the youngest one, Sukhvinder of the BJP, who trounced Ranbir Singh Mahendra of the Congress, who is former president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and son of former chief minister Bansi Lal, from the Badhra assembly constituency, is just 29 years old, the oldest is INLD legislator Hari Chand Middha (Jind seat) at 72.
At least 44 legislators in the new assembly are 50 years old or less. Of these, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has 23 young legislators, followed by the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) with 12 and the Congress with four. Haryana itself was created November 1, 1966, and will be 48 in the next few days.
Nine of the 13 women legislators elected this time are under the age of 50 years. It is for the first time in Haryana that 13 women legislators have made it to the assembly. The earlier high was 11 women legislators in the 2005 assembly polls. The election results this time have also sent the first legislator-couple case to the assembly.

Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) president Kuldeep Bishnoi and his wife Renuka Bishnoi will enter the Haryana assembly as the first elected couple. Both, aged 46 and 40 respectively, have been legislators earlier but were never elected together. Kuldeep is son of former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal. Kuldeep’s elder brother, Chander Mohan, a former deputy chief minister, lost in the polls this time.

INLD leader Abhay Chautala and his sister-in-law (elder brother’s wife) Naina Chautala have also been elected to the new assembly. Naina is the first woman from the political clan of former deputy prime minister Devi Lal to contest an election and win it. Abhay and Naina are 49 and 47 years old respectively. However, Naina’s son, Dushyant Chautala, who is the sitting Lok Sabha member from Hisar, lost from the Uchana Kalan assembly seat.

The outgoing legislative assembly had three people from the same family as legislators. These were INLD leader Om Prakash Chautala, a former chief minister, and his two sons Ajay Chautala and Abhay Chautala. Om Prakash Chautala and Ajay Chautala were convicted by a CBI court in Delhi in a teachers’ recruitment scam and sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment. Both are lodged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail now.

The BJP will form the government in Haryana after the party won from 47 constituencies.

The INLD followed with 19 legislators while the Congress, which was in power since March 2005, managed to get only 15 seats. Two seats went to the HJC, one each to the Shiromani Akali Dal and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). Five Independent candidates were also elected.
BJP legislative party meeting to elect the new chief minister begins here.

The BJP parliamentary board has deputed union Minister Venkaiah Naidu and senior leader Dinesh Sharma as observers for the meeting here.

All newly-elected 47 BJP legislators, the central observers and other senior Haryana BJP leaders are attending the meeting.....

Bhura Kona (Tarn Taran), October 21: Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal today said that he would soon meet the Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi to seek his personal intervention for ensuring remunerative MSP to the farmers’ for their produce.
Interacting with the media persons on the sidelines of a function to pay tribute to former Head of Damdami Taksal Sant Kartar Singh Bhindrawale here today, the Chief Minister bemoaned that due to escalating cost of farming inputs and the excessive centralization of policies by the Union government, agriculture was no longer a profitable venture. He said that the net result of such regressive policies of the successive Union governments was that the hard working and resilient farmers of the country who had played a key role in ensuring food security in India were on the verge of economic disaster. Mr. Badal categorically said that the ongoing agrarian crisis in the country could jeopardize the food security of the nation if timely action was not taken by the Union government.
Therefore, the Chief Minister said that he would soon meet the Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi and urge him to take immediate steps for evolving a mechanism so that the farmers of the country could be provided remunerative MSP. He said that this important issue was a part of BJP’s manifesto for the recently concluded general elections, so it was imperative for the NDA government to take necessary action in this regard. “I am confident that a visionary and dynamic leader like Mr. Modi will take the necessary action for ensuring the welfare of the food growers of the country” added Mr. Badal.
When asked about the spectacular victory of the BJP in recent concluded assembly elections of Haryana and Maharashtra, the Chief Minister said that he was the happiest person due to the marvelous performance of their alliance partner.
Earlier paying floral tributes to Sant Kartar Singh Bhindranwale, the Chief Minister recalled the services rendered by him for the preaching the tenets of Sikhism amongst the masses. Mr. Badal said that the commitment and dedication of Sant Ji for disseminating Sikhism amongst the people would be ever remembered by one and all. Describing him as a true champion of human rights, he said that throughout his life Sant Kartar Singh followed the footsteps of Sikh Gurus for opposing the tyranny, oppression and injustice for upholding the values human rights.
The Chief Minister further said that Sant Kartar Singh Ji was a true votary of democracy and a testimony to which was the vehement struggle launched by him against the Emergency imposed by the Government of India (GoI) in 1975. He recalled that after the imposition of Emergency the then Union government had issued gag orders to disallow more than five persons to assemble at a single point but at that time Sant Ji had led numerous processions to defy this unethical encroachment on the fundamental rights of the people. Mr. Badal said that as a result of such untiring efforts by Sant Ji democracy was restored in the country.
Reiterating the firm commitment of SAD-BJP alliance government to ensure overall development of the state, the Chief Minister said that due to the stupendous efforts of the state government, Punjab has today emerged as a frontrunner state of the country. Mr. Badal further said that Punjab being a welfare state was providing free power to its farmers at a cost of Rs 6000 crore, so as to bail them out from the agrarian crisis. Likewise, he said that thrust was also being given for ensuring the well being of the weaker sections of the society, for which free Atta-Dal was being given to them.
Prominent amongst those who were present on the occasion included Chief Parliamentary Secretary Prof. Virsa Singh Valtoha, former Chairman PEDA Bhai Manjit Singh, SGPC Member Jathedar Bawa Singh Ghumanpura, youth Akali leader Mr. Gaurav Singh Valtoha besides senior officers of the Police and civil administration.....

Ferozepur, October 21: The Punjab Government led by SAD-BJP alliance has earned criticism on its failure over “Drug Free Punjab” campaign in the state and SAD defeat in Haryana while supporting INLD against the wishes of its alliance BJP.

The government has not failed in providing the proper infrastructure to establish Rehabilitation Centers in Punjab, the bitter truth is that even after months, the government is not able to appoint the requisite staff.

On his visit to this border town on 5th July this year, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had announced that the State Government shall build 22 Rehabilitation Centres in Punjab. National Building Construction Company (NBCC), a government undertaking was entrusted the work for the construction of these rehabilitation Centres wherever required.

The building of Old Age Home, adjoining blind home at Ferozepur city was converted into a Drug De-addiction & Rehabilitation Centre and the inmates of Old Age Home (Baghban) were shifted to Blind Home.

Even after months, the state government has failed to depute the proper staff and infrastructure in this rehabilitation centre. The staff including one counselor, four male nurses, two ward attendants, who were appointed after a written test and interview, is deputed at the Drug De-addiction Centre at Civil Hospital. Since the old age home is vacated, only one watchman is appointed there for 24 hours to upkeep the premises. Besides few incidents of theft has also been reported in this building.

As per the information available, Er. DPS Kharbanda, Deputy Commissioner, Ferozepur has urged the government to provide more facilities and expand the current building with provisions at the first floor instead of constructing a new proposed one at Canal Colony, Ferozepur. The Deputy Commissioner, in his letter written to the Managing Director, Punjab Health System Corporation, has mentioned that it will be rather easy to use the old age home building instead of constructing a new one.

It is pertinent to mention here that there are around 8-10 drug-addicted person getting regular treatment in the de-addiction centre at Ferozepur Civil Hospital.

Chandigarh, October 21 ,2014 :Karnal BJP MLA Manohar Lal Khattar to be new CM of Haryana , elected leader of Haryana BJP Legislative Party at Chandigarh today.

Khattar is a non-Jat in a state where Jats have for long dominated politics as the single biggest chunk of voters. He is an unmarried former RSS pracharak or functionary, who was deputed to the BJP 20 years ago.
Choosing a non-Jat CM for Haryana was a tricky decision. It seems to have based it on the fact that it did not do well in Jat-dominated areas like Sirsa, Hisar, Bhiwandi and Jinda in south Haryana and performed very well elsewhere in the state in assembly elections held last week.
Only six of the 25 Jat candidates it fielded won, setting up a clamour from north Haryana that it must be rewarded for backing the BJP with a non-Jat chief minister. He will be the first Punjabi CM of Haryana.
