By Babushahi Bureau

Patiala, September 1: Excise and Taxation Department, Punjab has detected a major scam in evasion of tax on ceramic tiles. This was informed by Sh.

Patiala, September 1: Excise and Taxation Department, Punjab has detected a major scam in evasion of tax on ceramic tiles. This was informed by Sh. Anurag Verma, I.A.S., Excise & Taxation Commissioner, Punjab. He said a few days back, a vehicle No. RJ 07 GA 1846 loaded with Ceramic Tiles was checked on Barnala-Raikot Road. It claimed that it was carrying ceramic tiles worth Rs.3,01,528/- from M/s. Metro City Tiles Pvt. Ltd., Morbi, Gujarat to M/s. Gupta Sanitary and Hardware Store, in Chandigarh. The vehicle was being escorted by the car of a “Passer”. On checking, it was found that the passer was carrying a parallel set of documents, issued by M/s. H & R Johnson India Ltd., Mumbai (Mah.) in favour of M/s. Maa Mahakali Traders, Jalandhar amounting to Rs.7,56,624/-. On being questioned, the driver and the Passer stated that the tiles of M/s. H & R Johnson brand were actually going to be delivered to the dealer at Jalandhar but in order to evade tax, bogus/forged transit documents had been prepared in favour of a Chandigarh dealer. The Jalandhar dealer denied that he had brought/purchased these tiles. A couple of days later, two more vehicles having registration Nos. RJ07GA-2782 and RJ07GB4289 were impounded, in which similar modus operandi of tax evasion was being adopted. Mr. Verma said that a penalty of Rs.11,87,477/- have been imposed on the goods in the vehicle, but no one has come forward to claim the goods as owners till now.
Mr. Verma said that in order to go to the root of the problem, the computer data was searched to find out as to how many trucks had transited through Punjab carrying tiles from M/s. Metro City Tiles P Ltd. Morbi, Gujarat to various dealers of neighboring states. It was found that during last one year, 181 trucks had crossed the State carrying goods of M/s. Metro City Tiles P Ltd. Morbi, Gujarat. Value of these goods was more than Rs. 5 crores. Out of this, goods worth Rs.80 lacs have been shown to have been sent to the Chandigarh dealer. Mr. Verma added that with the help of VAT Department, U.T. Chandigarh, a statement of M/s. Gupta Sanitary & Hardware Store was recorded. The dealer denied having received any of these goods, meaning thereby the goods amounting to Rs. 80 lakhs were actually unloaded and sold in Punjab and tax thereon was evaded.
Mr. Verma said that in the light of denial by both Jalandhar and Chandigarh dealers, the Department did brain-storming as to how to catch the actual dealer who had received the goods. It was felt that M/s. H & R Johnson India Ltd. would be having the names of Punjab dealers who had imported goods from them because the vehicle detected had a correct set of documents from M/s. H & R Johnson India Ltd., Mumbai. In light of this, the matter has been taken up with VAT Department, Gujarat to provide the details of purchases of ceramic tiles made by Punjab dealers from their dealers. He said that the first interaction with Gujarat VAT Department revealed that during last four years Gujarat dealers had sent ceramic tiles worth about Rs.770 crores to Punjab dealer. In light of this, VAT Department, Gujarat has been requested to give the detailed information of amount of ceramic tiles purchased by Punjab dealers from Gujarat. Gujarat dealers would necessarily have supplied these details to their VAT Department in order to claim concessional rate of tax under CST Act. They would also have provided ‘C’ and ‘F’ forms obtained from Punjab dealers. Once this data is obtained, the returns of Punjab dealers would be compared with it and where Tax has been evaded would be recovered. ....

While talking to mediapersons at Shergill Farm in Behrampur Zimidara village near here on Sunday, Dr Gandhi said AAP was born out of movement of Anna Hazare, but had lost organisational structure, and some opportunistic persons of the movement had entered the party, which had harmed it.
He said the party had committed mistake in Delhi when Arvind Kejriwal resigned from the post of chief minister, adding that Kejriwal should also not have contested the Lok Sabha elections.
He said instead of contesting the elections he should have campaigned for party candidates in the country. Had he campaigned in Punjab for few more days, the party would have won at least eight Lok Sabha seats in the state, Dr Gandhi said.
He said if the assembly elections were held in Delhi, AAP would emerge victorious, adding that BJP was running away from the elections.

New Delhi, September 1: PM Narendra Modi’s Japan visit is bringing a bonanza of 35 billion dollars investment over the next five years in India to build smart cities and finance infrastructure projects. Japan will also supply financial, technical and operational support to introduce bullet trains in India.
Media reports that PM Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe during their summit talks also reaffirmed the importance of bilateral defence relations in their strategic partnership and agreed on greater defence equipment and technology cooperation.
The summit meeting took place on the third day of Modi's five-day visit to Japan when the two countries also decided to expedite talks on sale of US-2 amphibian aircraft to India for enhancing maritime security.
At a joint press conference, Abe also announced that as an example of Indo-Japan cooperation, Tokyo will help India in providing financial, technical and operational support to introduce Bullet trains, a project that Modi has been actively pursuing.
Japan will also help India in providing better connectivity with its neighbours, he said.
On the civil nuclear deal, which was expected to be finalised during the visit, Abe said they have directed the officials to accelerate negotiations for early conclusion of an agreement to strengthen partnership.
While India is said to be pursuing the deal with Japan on the template of the landmark Indo-US nuclear accord, Tokyo is said to be not that enthusiastic about that being the basis.
The 3.5 trillion yen( 34 billion USD) of investment from Japan to India including Official Development Assistance (ODA) during a 5-year period will be under the aegis of India Japan Investment Promotion Partnership for development of projects including infrastructure and building of smart cities.
The five-year period will also see the doubling of the presence of Japanese firms in India, Abe said.
Thanking Abe for providing him an opportunity to make Japan his first bilateral visit outside South Asia, Modi said," we both have decided to raise the relationship to a special strategic and global partnership by giving it a special emphasis".

Asserting that his visit ushered in a dawn of new era in Indo-Japan relations, Modi said there is no "limit" to partnership between the two countries.





India, Japan to cooperate to address regional challenges



Underlining that a closer and stronger bilateral strategic partnership is indispensable for advancing peace in the world, India and Japan today decided to promote economic and social development and engage with other nations to address regional challenges and promote peaceful resolution of disputes.

This was decided during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's meeting with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.

During the meeting, the two Prime Ministers affirmed their shared belief that "at a time of growing turmoil, tensions and transitions in the world, a closer and stronger strategic partnership between India and Japan is indispensable for a prosperous future for their two countries and for advancing peace, stability and prosperity in the world, in particular, in the inter-connected Asia, Pacific and Indian Ocean Regions".

"The two Prime Ministers decided, in particular, to draw on the strength of their two countries' shared values, convergent interests, and complementary skills and resources to build a strong partnership to promote economic and social development, capacity-building and infrastructure development in other interested countries and regions," a joint statement said.

They also affirmed their intention to engage with other countries in the region and beyond to address the region's challenges, deepen regional cooperation and integration, strengthen regional economic and security forums and promote peaceful resolution of disputes.

Modi said India considers Japan among its closest and most reliable partners and this relationship is "the highest priority for my government".

"This is not only because Japan is a vital partner for India's transformation, but also because India and Japan as two peace-loving and democratic nations can play an influential role in shaping the future of Asia and the world," he said.

"A successful India and a successful Japan will be of benefit to both countries. Even more, the relationship will be a force of peace, stability and prosperity in Asia and the world," the Prime Minister said.

The two Prime Ministers condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, irrespective of their perpetrators, origin and motivations.

They emphasised that the evolving character of terrorism called for stronger international partnership in combating terrorism, including through increased sharing of information and intelligence. ....

Special CBI Judge Madhu Jain rejected Tejinder Singh's bail application and sent him to judicial custody till October20. Meanwhile, CBI also supplied the copy of charge sheet and other documents to Tejinder Singh, who had appeared in the court following court's summons in the case.During the day, he had moved the bail plea which was opposed by the CBI and was later rejected by the court.
Media reports that the court had taken cognisance of the charge sheet on August 28 after relying upon the statements of former Defence Minister A K Antony, V K Singh and other witnesses whose testimonies were recorded by the agency during the probe.The CBI in its charge sheet had alleged that in August-September 2010, the file pertaining to procurement of 1,676Tatra vehicles was pending before V K Singh, who is now a Minister of State of External Affairs and Minister of Statein-charge of Department of Northeast Region. The then Chief of Army Staff (COAS) was not convinced with the total projected requirement of the vehicles and it appeared to him that the requirement has been inflated, the agency had said, adding V K Singh had sought fresh opinion on the issue from different quarters.
In its charge sheet, the CBI had alleged that Tejinder Singh met V K Singh in his office in South Block on September 22, 2010, and during the meeting, he had offered a bribe to V K Singh for clearing the file of Tatra vehicles by first week of October.

Chandigarh, September 1: In order to promote crop diverfsication in the state by optimally utilizing the capacity of juicing plants run by the Punjab Agro Juices Limited (PAJL), the Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal sanctioned Rs 3.73 crore for the purchase of ultra modern machinery required for the up-gradation of both these plants at Abohar and Hoshiarpur
Disclosing this here today a spokesperson of the Chief Minister's Office said that Badal cleared the file to this effect, this morning.
As per the decision, the Chief Minister gave nod to install Poly Citrus, Poly press and Photofinisher machines worth Rs 1.77 crore besides Fruit and vegetable compressor machine at Abohar plant to be utilized for processing of chilly (Red and Green), Ginger, Garlic, Onion and carrot at a cost of Rs 51 lakh. Likewise, he also approved the setting up of two dryers for making the residue of fruits and vegetables saleable. In order to package the juices produced from these juicing plants, Badal also gave a go ahead for setting up bottling plant at a cost of Rs 75 lakh in Hoshiarpur.
It may be recalled that these efforts of the state government were in consonance with its flagship program of diverfsication of agriculture coupled with value addition to ensure remunerative returns to the fruit and vegetable growers. The Juicing plants set up by the state government at Abohar and Hoshiarpur have processed a record 15000 tonnes of tomatoes and other fruits like watermelon, litchi and pears during this year. Likewise, the state government has set a target of processing 10000 tonnes of kinnows in the coming season. The Chief Minister's approval for fresh funds would help upgrading the facilities at both these plants, which would result in processing of kinnows with improved and latest technology.
With equipping up of both these plants with the high end technology the processing of maximum fruits of Punjab like watermelon, pears, litchi, guava, carrot and others would be ensured to enhance its value addition on one hand and to ensure handsome returns to cultivators on the other. With the setting up bottling plants the processing and marketing of the ready to serve drinks in retail packaging would be facilitated. The up-gradation and strengthening of both these plants would go a long way in promoting the horticulture in the state thereby saving the only available natural resources of the state in terms of fertile soil and water besides supplementing the income of the farmers.
The latest machinery and infra structure in these juicing plants would provide an opportunity to the PAJL to establish their products as premium brands to enable them to compete with the national and global players like Hindustan UniLever Ltd, Cremica, Pagro Foods, Del Monte, Capricorn and Mother Diary, which were already using this state-of-the art technology.....

It may be mentioned here yesterday, family member of human Bomb Dilwar Singh who had assassinated the serving Chief Minister of Punjab Beant Singh was honored at the highest Sikh temporal seat Akal Takht amidst the presence of sizeable gathering of radical Sikhs.

Dilawar Singh who was human Bomb had blown himself to assassinate Beant Singh.

Bangi Ruldu Singh (Bathinda), September 1 : Rubbishing the claims of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to form government in Punjab after 2017 assembly elections as a ‘fool’s paradise’, the Chief Minister Punjab Parkash Singh Badal said that the AAP would meet the same fate as it had in the recently concluded by-elections where the party candidates’ securities too were forfeited.
Talking to media persons on thanks giving tour of Talwandi Sabo assembly
segment Badal said that the AAP candidates have lost their securities
in the Talwandi Sabo and Patiala by-elections which was an indicator enough to make AAP workers realize that the party was near oblivion in Punjab. He added that though in a democratic country every person has right to contest elections but people repose faith in only those parties that have credibility and that work on the path of serving masses.
He said that the people of Delhi gave AAP an opportunity to form its government but party president Arvind Kejriwal betrayed their faith by resigning from the post of Chief Minister. Badal added that the intelligent voters will never believe a party that betrayed people.
He added that for the past seven years the stable SAD-BJP alliance in state
is ushering in development and prosperity and due to its credibility the people of Punjab have re-elected it creating a history.
When asked about the Indian National Lok Dal leader Dushyant Chautala
selecting Parkash Singh Badal as the main campaigner for INLD in Haryana assembly elections, Badal said that he would canvass to dislodge anti-Sikh Congress from Haryana.
At the thanks giving tour, Badal directed water supply department to ensure that water paucity in every village were solved so that people do not face any kind of problem.

The Chief Minister today expressed gratitude to the people of Jeevan Singh Wala, Naseeb Pura, Kot Bakhtu, Bangi Ruldu Singh, Bangi Nihal Singh, Bangi Ruldu and Bangi Deepa villages for emerging Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu victorious from the constituency with a record margin which has infused energy in the cadre.

Badal perpetuating corruption and encouraging corrupt officials

Don’t adopt cavalier attitude towards the health of children: Bajwa

Chandigarh, September 1: Expressing serious concern over the cavalier attitude of the Parkash Singh Badal government in Punjab towards the anganwari children who have not been supplied ration for the last several months, the state Congress chief, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa today dubbed it as extreme example of non-performance and non-governance.

Chandigarh, September 1: Expressing serious concern over the cavalier attitude of the Parkash Singh Badal government in Punjab towards the anganwari children who have not been supplied ration for the last several months, the state Congress chief, Mr Partap Singh Bajwa today dubbed it as extreme example of non-performance and non-governance.

In a statement, he said this state of affairs was shocking as it is the children mostly from the families from the lower strata of the society who were being taken care of in the anganwaris and nothing could be more shocking that the state government had failed to arrange ration for them for the mid-day meal due to bankruptcy.

“Here is the government which keeps on parroting the development theme while its practice at the ground level is to the contrary. This also questioned the often repeated claims by the Deputy Chief Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal about there being no financial crisis in the state”, he added.

He asserted winning elections through rigging, money and muscle power along with the misuse of official machinery was altogether different and the irony was that the Badal government claimed such victories as the vote for development. He pointed out in Talwandi Sabo, the complaints by the people about the lack of basic amenities on the very first day of Mr Badal’s sangat darshan programme should be an eye opener. He said these complaints flew in the face of the claims made by the Badals that the massive mandate in Talwandi Sabo was for development.

Taking pot shots at Mr Badal for asking the government officials at Talwandi Sabo as to how much cut they received while carrying out development works, the PPCC chief said either he should take strong action against the culprits or confess that his writ did not run in the state and he was helpless. In case the Chief Minister had the information, he should act against such officials rather than betraying his own ineptitude. It had been known to Mr Badal all along as he was in the saddle for the fifth term but strangely, he had never given the signal of being tough against corruption and the reasons were too obvious. In a manner, Badal is directly perpetuating corruption and encouraging the corrupt officials.

Mr Bajwa said it was the neglect of the children taken care of at the anganwaris during the day which was all the more serious and betrayed total apathy towards such a sensitive issue. He felt that nothing could be more important than the health of the children and any government showing such wilful neglect had no right to be in office.

He called upon Mr Badal to disburse funds to the anganwaris by giving this issue a top priority.....

Addressing the audience at the seminar, Dilip Chenoy, MD & CEO, National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) said, “There is an urgent need for the industry &academia to come together and contribute to the skilling ecosystem by designing diversified skill training programs. This will empower the youth and help them become gainfully employed or self-employed. The focus should be on skilling, up-skilling and re-skilling across all sectors, according to the industry standards defined by the Sector Skill Councils. We have taken up this challenge and I am sure with our wide network of 150 partners and 31 Sector Skill Councils, we will be able to set-up a successful skilling ecosystem in the country.”


“Our target is to skill 3.3 million youth in 2014-15. The target committed for the current fiscal is nearly three and half times of what was set and achieved in 2013-14.

I encourage all candidates here, to plan for their career carefully and acquire technical and soft skills, which will help increase their efficiency and productivity.”

Chandigarh, September 1 (Courtesy :HT) : Comedian-turned-politician and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member of Parliament (MP) from Sangrur Bhagwant Mann, who has reportedly become the most popular Punjabi politician on the social media, said here on Sunday that "politics is a serious business and people give their love only to those who raise their issues seriously".
Having a monthly growth of 1.11 lakh fans since he became the MP, Mann has a total of 7.36 lakh followers on his Facebook page and he has been the most liked politician during the last two months as he left Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal far behind as the latter's account on Facebook has only 5.17 lakh followers. Harsimrat Kaur Badal, with 3.17 lakh followers is next in the line, followed by Captain Amarinder Singh with 1.76 lakh followers and Bikram Singh Majithia has only 73,453 fans.
In popularity on the social media, Mann has also defeated Manpreet Badal, with whom he started the political career in People's Party of Punjab as the latter has only 65,000 fans on Facebook. Other young politicians of the state such as Ravneet Bittu, Vijay Inder Singla and Manish Tewari are also below the one-lakh mark.
Bhagwant Mann was equally famous on YouTube also and his most popular upload on YouTube is his poem in which he sarcastically has criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his pre-poll promises of bringing 'achche din' (betters days). This upload got 4.81 lakh hits in only 38 days. 6,459 people liked the upload. Bhagwant Mann has uploaded almost all his speeches in Parliament and all the uploads have got more than 40,000 hits, on the Youtube.
Bhagwant Mann also has more than 12,500 followers on Twitter, but he is far behind than former union minister Manish Tewari, who has 78,600 followers on the Twitter. But Mann is ahead of other leaders such as Captain Amarinder Singh (4,123), Harsimrat Kaur (2,067) and deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal (1,329) and Manpreet Badal (5,697)
Talking to Hindustan Times, Bhagwant Mann, who is on a thanksgiving tour here, said, "I am happy that the people across the country are giving me their love and support. In Punjab, educated youths are looking for a change in the political system, even the NRIs of the state are supporting me on the social media."
"My interview with BBC also got more than 64,000 hits in one month on YouTube, and my another upload in which I raised the issue of ETT teachers in Parliament got 70,000 hits," he added.
On the authenticity of fans on social networking websites, Mann said, "My followers are genuine and anybody can verify the fact. There are some politicians in the state who purchase fake likes on Facebook, but now the technology is advanced and anybody can check their authenticity."
Mann has also managed to create his fans outside the country as out of a total of 7.16 lakh followers on Facebook, about 22% fans are out of India, including 27,273 in Canada and 21,238 in Australia. With a view to increase his popularity, he has also created a channel on the YouTube, that enables his followers to chat with him.

Nawanshahr: September 1: Deputy Commissioner Nawanshahr Anindita Mitra IAS reviewed the on going developments projects in the district Nawanshahr on Saturday and a held meeting with concerned officals. The DC examined the latest position of the 100 bed civil hospital Nawanshahr which has been lying completed since the last two years, but could not be made functional due to official snags and hurdles in the construction of the only 60 feet approach road to the hospital.

It is worth while to state here that the work on the civil hospital project picked up after Anindita took over as Deputy Commissioner of Nawanshahr last year. She supervised and monitored the project on fortnightly basis, removed the snags and accelerated the construction of approach road which was going on slow pace and the project has missed many deadlines due to this stumbling block.

Amritsar, August 31: In an attempt to demarcate the religious boundaries between Sikhs and Hindus, the Dal Khalsa has called upon the Sikhs to shun Brahmanical rituals and oppose the RSS attempts to brand Sikhs as Hindus "in a befitting manner".

The recent statement of RSS chief has heightened the tension between Sikhs and the RSS. The RSS attempt to suggest a different way of looking at the question of Sikh identity has aroused virulent opposition.

To counter the claim that Sikhism is the sword arm of Hinduism, the hardliners led by the Dal Khalsa held a seminar on Sunday at its party head office. The speaker’s warned that utterances and actions of the RSS will radicalize the atmosphere even more.

Commenting on the RSS agenda for the "Hindu rashtra", Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh categorically stated that though the RSS was free to create "Hindu rashtra", but one thing was clear that Punjab would not be its part. In response to RSS’s cultural attack, he said the sectarian lines between Indian and non-Indians must be drawn. We are clear that Sikhs are on the other side.

He criticised the Akali leadership for striking an alliance with Hindutva forces. He said that it was the Sikh leadership that allowed the RSS and the BJP to have a field day in Punjab. He said that the tenth Guru sacrificed his sons for the sake of the panth but today's leaders were sacrificing panthic interests for the future of their sons.

He said that "the Congress harmed Sikhs physically by getting hundreds of them killed, but the BJP was hitting at the roots and foundations of the Sikh religion". He lambasted the RSS for interfering in the internal affairs of Sikhs.

The Dal Khalsa leader said that it was the Hindutva brand of politics practised by a "lunatic Brahaminical minority" which compelled them to take extreme steps.

The speakers were of the view that the success of the BJP in Indian polls had emboldened the RSS to rekindle the Hindutva agenda in other parts of the India.

Prof Jagmohan Singh, a human rights activist delivered speech on the role of youth in shaping the present and future of the community.

The gathering passed a resolution stating that Sikhs are a separate religion. Sikhs have distinct identity. Sikhs are not Hindus. Punjab rightfully belongs to Sikhs”.
In a scathing attack on the Union government, he said the state is in a denial mood to recognize and resolve the Punjab problem.....

To take up issue of Punjabi farmers not being given visa to Georgia with union govt.

Lehri (Bathinda), August 31 Terming the move to form Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Judicial Commission as a wrong step, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal said that the Haryana government was meddling into the Sikh religious affairs since the matter lay sub judice in the apex court.
While interacting with media persons on the second day of thanks giving tour in Talwandi Sabo Assembly Constituency, the Chief Minister said that the issue of separate committee was under judicial consideration in the Supreme Court and making any move to form Haryana Sikh Judicial Commission would not only be legally incorrect but also ethically wrong. He said that the Congress has always followed its age old policy to divide and rule wherein it has divided states and people
and to rule over them.

The Chief Minister said that Haryana’s CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda was taking such wrongful step on the behest of Congress high command to divide Sikh community in different states and taking decisions against them. Holding Congress responsible for hatching a conspiracy, Badal said that while the matter was sub judice in court, it was illegal to form the judicial commission and appoint office bearers of the same.

He added that the Hooda government was supporting that faction demanding separate committee whom Sikhs of Haryana have already rejected giving them a crushing defeat leading to even forfeiture of their security deposits during general elections of Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).

The Chief Minister today reiterated that SGPC represents Sikhs whose foundation has been laid on the sacrifices of thousands of Sikh martyrs. He added that in Maharashtra the ruling state Congress government has marginalized representation of SGPC in the Takht Sri Hazoor Sahib Board yielding to nefarious designs of the Congress high command and has given proof of being anti-Sikh.

He added that by taking such decision, the Maharashtra government has tried to disrupt peace of Sikh community and this move cannot be considered morally, politically, religiously or legally justified.
Taking up the issue of Georgia refusing visa to the Punjab farmers, Mr. Badal said that though such international issues were responsibility of the union government, he would urge the center to intervene in the issue so that the interests of Punjabi farmers, who have made agriculture investments in Georgia, were safeguarded.

Slamming state Congress over its allegations of emptying the state coffers, the Chief Minister said that except for making baseless statements Congress was left with nothing else to say. He said that during the SAD-BJP government’s regime the state has witnessed all round development and prosperity through implementation of pro-poor initiatives whereas Congress had formed government claiming to fight
for the poor, but did nothing tangible for this underprivileged section of society. Mr. Badal categorically said that there was no paucity of funds for the development of the state and prosperity of its people and hence Congress should refrain from making such baseless statements just to score brownie points.

The Chief Minister today expressed gratitude to the people of Natheha, Nangla, Lehri, Singho, Behman Kaur Singh, Behman Jassa Singh, Gurusar, Fatehgarh Nauabad and Leleana villages for emerging Mr. Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu victorious from the constituency with a record margin. He listened to the grievances of the people and monitor progress of ongoing development works.

Prominent amongst others who were present on the occasion included Senior SAD leader and Rajya Sabha Member Mr. Balwinder Singh Bhunder, MLA Mr. Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu, PUNSUP Chairman Mr. Sukhwinder Singh Aulakh, Akali leader Mr. Amarjit Singh Khana, former MLA Jagdeep Singh Nakkai, former Principal Secretary to CM Darbara Singh Guru besides Special Principal Secretary to CM Mr. KJS Cheema.....

Chandigarh, August 31 : In a bid to facilitate the aspirants from the state to appear in the Civil Services Exam in a hassle free manner, the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal has urged the Union Minister of state, Personnel and Training Dr. Jitendra Singh to set up an examination centre either at Ludhiana or Jalandhar, which were the centrally located.
In a letter to Dr. Jitendra Singh, the Chief Minister apprised him that thousands of students from the state appear for Civil Services examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) annually. He pointed out that at present there was no examination center in the state adding that Chandigarh being the nearest centre, all of the students from Punjab have to come here for appearing in the prestigious examination. Many of these students have to travel a distance of 300 km to reach Chandigarh.
Narrating the hardships faced by the students, the Chief Minister further said that as the exam starts in the early morning, students could not take risk of traveling from their hometown to Chandigarh on the day of the exam, henceforth most of them have to travel a day prior to the exam and make arrangements for their boarding and lodging at Chandigarh. He said that apart from other inconveniences, this also resulted in a lot of economic hardships to the poor students, especially from the rural areas of border districts, being located farthest from the capital city. Pleading the case for hapless aspirants of this coveted exam, Mr. Badal mentioned that there were several instances where bright students from disadvantaged background have not even filled the form due to resultant economic hardships. Thus, he sought the Union Minister's immediate intervention resolve this issue of priority by setting up atleast one examination centre in the state for ensuring equal opportunity to all.

Chandigarh, August 31: Mohinder Singh Ji sanyojak Chandigarh branch has informed that Her Holiness Nirankari Rajmata Kulwant Kaur Ji, the holy mother of Nirankari Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj merged into the eternal abode on Friday, August 29, 2014. The body has been placed in repose at the Sant Nirankari Satsang Bhawan in Sant Nirankari Colony, Delhi where thousands of devotees are coming from all over India and abroad for her last glimpse (Darshan).

The funeral will take place on Sunday at Nirgam Bodh Ghat at 2.00 pm. The last journey of the body will start from Sant Nirankari Colony at 11.00 am.

A special Prerna Divas congregation in remembrance of the spiritual life of Her Holiness will be held on Monday, September 1, 2014 from 11.00 am onwards at Ground No. 2, Opposite Nirankari Sarovar, Nirankari Chowk, Outer Ring Road, Delhi in the divine presence of His Holiness Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj and his gracious spouse Pujya Mata Sawinder Ji.

Her Holiness Nirankari Rajmata Kulwant Kaur Ji was born on January 1, 1931 in Kaimalpur (now Pakistan) in the family of Shri Manna Singh Ji and Smt. Somawanti Ji. However, she was brought up in Quetta where her father had his business. She loved to visit Gurudwara and listen to Gurbani. She received Brahm Gyan (God-knowledge) from Baba Avtar Singh Ji when she was just 8 year old. In April 1947 she was married to Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji, son of Shahenshah Baba Avtar Singh Ji.

Ever since her marriage, she served Shahenshah Baba Avtar Singh Ji more as her spiritual master, Satguru rather than her father-in-law. With full spirit of faith and devotion, she obeyed each and every word of Shahenshah Ji, so much so that she became an example for other devotees.

In 1962, when Shahenshah Baba Avtar Singh Ji passed on the Sant Nirankari Mission's spiritual mentorship to Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji, she started sharing the dais with him and participated in Mission's activities all the more whole-heartedly. Devotees of the Mission started addressing her lovingly as Nirankari Rajmata Ji. She dovetailed her responsibilities at home in such a way that they never came in the way of her assisting Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji in promoting the spiritual message of the Mission. Here also she treated Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji as Satguru first and her spouse later.

In April 1980, Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji fell to the bullets of some anti-social orthodox elements and Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj took over the spiritual command of the Mission. Her Holiness Nirankari Rajmata Kulwant Kaur Ji bowed at his feet as a humble devotee even though his mother in worldly relationship. And she showed the same faith and devotion towards Baba Ji till her last breath.




At home Nirankari Rajmata Kulwant Kaur Ji taught her son, (Baba) Hardev Singh Ji and daughters Niranjan, Jagjit, Mohini and Bindiya to assimilate the values of truth, love, tolerance, humility and contentment. She encouraged them to trust God and have faith in Satguru. Like any other devotee, she inspired her children also towards seeking the company of saints (Satsang), remembrance of God (Simran) and selfless service (Sewa).

Rev Nirankari Rajmata Ji was always a guiding star for women. She counselled every woman devotee to live with love and harmony not only with husband but other members of the family also. There are thousands of examples where she saved the family from breaking or shattering.

Her Holiness Nirankari Rajmata Ji's holy discourses were always marked by the message that every human being must attain God-knowledge for which he or she has to bow at the holy feet of a perfect true master.

Ferozepur, August 31: To lay the foundation stones would not suffice, which has become a rituality of the politicians, to please the public, but arranging timely funds and completion of projects is more important.
The Foundation stone laid by Parkash Singh Badal, Chief Minister, well before the Parliament elections on February 14, itself speaks its own tale as the same yet to start what to say of its operation. The cost involved is Rs.10 crore.
Among those whose names are appearing on the foundation stone, apart from Parkash Singh Badal, are – Janmeja Singh Sekhon, Irrigation Minister, Punjab, Kamal Sharma,Punjab BJP President, Sher Singh Ghubaya, MP and Sukhpal Singh Nannu, former MLA.
Despite four personalities from Ferozepur closely associated with the Akali-BJP government and one Congress MLA Parminder Singh Pinki from Ferozepur, the fate of Astroturf Stadium in Ferozepur still looks to a dream for hockey players.
The existing Shaheed Bhagat Singh Stadium has produed many – Ajit Singh Olympyian, his brother Harmik Singh Olympian, Ram Lal International Player, Gagan Ajit Singh, SP Punjab Police, Harnarayan Singh Ladi, former DSO, Navsher Singh of Railways, Manmit Singh Rubbal of Punjab Police, Bhopal Singh, SP Retd.

Even Major Dhyan Chand, known as “The Wizard”- had been doing practice in the Shaheed Bhagat Singh Stadium which was earlier known as Nehru Park.

Sunil Kumar Sharma, District Sports Officer, as usual said, the work on Astroturf will start only on receipt of its grant. I wish that grant is released at the earliest so that the talent of hockey lovers could bring laurels for Ferozepur in the matches at all levels.
Sports lover and NGO Ashok Bajaj a social activist said, the government should lay the foundation stone only after proper earmarking of budget by the finance department for the purpose.

Chandigarh, August 31: Ancient India had made valuable contribution to several scientific disciplines including astronomy and geology. This was stated by Dr. Om Narain Bhargava, a distinguished geologist and former director of Geological Survey of India, in his thought-provoking lecture 'Astronomy, Geography and Geology in Scriptures: Facts and Fictions’ delivered under the aegis of ‘monthly lecture series’ of the Society for Promotion of Science & Technology in India (SPSTI). The lecture was held in the Seminar Room of the Physics Department of Panjab University.

Dr. Bhargava said that the mysteries of universe, geological processes and evolution of life have evoked curiosity amongst human beings since time immemorial and almost all civilizations have made contribution to the understanding of astronomy and geology. In India, most of the findings and conclusions in several disciplines have been incorporated in various scriptures, most notably in the Vedic literature, comprising Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas and Surya Sidhanta.

Most of the references are philosophical and even symbolic that require deep understanding of Sanskrit and their philosophical interpretation. For example, Shani (Saturn) is mentioned as son of the Sun. The interpretation could be that the Saturn evolved out of the Sun; but then all planets had similar origin.

Citing several examples, Bhargava said that some of the facts mentioned in the Vedic literature are stunningly accurate, while others are quite off the mark. For example, dimension of the Universe (=Brahamand= Supreme Egg), diameters of various planets, distance of the Moon and the Sun from the Earth and the age of the Earth given in Surya Sidhanta are quite close to modern scientific findings. The universe according to scripture originated from a BINDU, akin to the Big Bang. The speed of light and diameters of several planets calculated are nearly precise, though in case of the Jupiter it is quite off the mark. The time of Pralaya and Mahapralyaya roughly coincide with major orogenies (mountain building activities) and important geological events, but it is difficult to say if these were based on some scientific evidence or just conjectures.....
