Disputed structures near temple demolished
Step taken in view of PM’s visit
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, November 24
Officials of the Ludhiana Municipal Corporation today demolished some disputed structures outside Durga Mata Mandir, near Guru Nanak Stadium, the venue of the XXXI National Games. Although the demolition provoked some minor protests, Municipal officials claimed that the temple authorities had themselves asked for the demolition of these structures.

The rubble was carried away. The structures were mostly used for keeping the shoes of devotees. These structures were claimed to be hampering the smooth flow of traffic during the peak hours. Moreover, in view of the scheduled visit of the Prime Minister, Mr Atal Behari Vajpayee, who is likely to attend the concluding function of the Games, these structures were removed.

A senior corporation official confirmed the demolition and claimed that the temple authorities had themselves requested the corporation for the removal of these structures as these were being misused by some anti-social elements. No temple official could be contacted for their version.

However, some people resorted to slogan shouting and alleged that the MC officials had not served any notice to them. The demonstrators mostly included the people who were using these structures for keeping the shoes of the devotees or selling goods.

It may be recalled that only a few months ago a major controversy had erupted following the demolition of the outer pillar of a gate outside the famous temple. This had provoked widespread protests in the city and had resulted in the transfer of the then Ludhiana Municipal Corporation Commissioner, Dr S.S. Sandhu. This time corporation officials seem to have taken the temple management into confidence as the demolitions were necessary in view of the forthcoming visit of the Prime Minister to the city.

Police adds insult to injury, books ‘assaulted’ women
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, November 24
Three local women, allegedly beaten up by a dhaba owner, have been booked on the charge of attacking him. Though the police claims to have registered another case on their complaint, the women allege that by registering a case against them, they are being pressurised into reaching a compromise with the dhaba owner.

The three women had allegedly been beaten up by the dhaba owner and some of his workers with iron rods earlier this week. He had later complained to the police that the women had attacked him at his dhaba and got a case registered against him.

As cases have been registered on both complaints, the policy of free registration of cases, introduced by the SSP, Mr Harpreet Singh Sidhu, is under a cloud. While the women, alleging police inaction and favouritism, are virtually running from the office of one police official to the office of another for justice and action against the dhaba owner, the Salem Tabri police denies the allegation.

Police sources said they had registered two cases on the complaints of the women and of the dhaba owner as per the new policy and the law. The sources said they were verifying the complaints and would take action against the guilty. Asked about the harassment caused to the women, the sources said they had been directed to register a case on every complaint.

Narrating the incident, Ms Janaki Devi, a mother of nine, said two of her daughters had been harassed by some dhaba workers. She said she had gone to the dhaba to reprimand them earlier this week, but he had started abusing her and had hit her with an iron rod. She claimed that her jaw had been broken while an injury on her head had required stitches.

When the woman told her daughters about the incident, her daughters Rajni and Sanju went to the police station to lodge a complaint. They had an exchange of hot words at the dhaba, which was on the way. They alleged that the dhaba owner and some of his workers had attacked them with iron rods and had injured them.

Ms Janki Devi alleged that the police had dilly-dallied on registering their complaint and had told them to go to the civil hospital to get them medically examined. She said the police was supporting the accused, who had tried to intimidate them at the hospital. The women said they had no knowledge that the police had registered a case as no one had come for their statement.

Boom time for auto drivers
Inadequate transport facility for players
Kanchan Vasdev
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, November 24
Even though the organising committee of the XXXI National Games claims to have arranged for over 900 buses for the transportation of the participants to and from the venue of various events and the hostels, the participants have to hire vehicles on their own to reach their venues respective thanks to the inadequate transportation facilities. The problem however, is proving to be a blessing in disguise for the auto-rickshaw drivers as their earnings have increased manifold.

Many participants staying in various hostels of the city lodged their protest with the Ludhiana Tribune and said while the rest of the arrangements were upto the mark, the organising committee had not paid much attention to the transportation.

The participants on the condition of anonymity said they had to wait for the buses for a long time and they found it better to hire their own auto-rickshaw and reach the venue. They said even the auto-rickshaw drivers were over-charging them as they were new to the place.

Fauja Singh, an auto-rickshaw driver was jubilant at the way things have turned out for them. ‘‘We have no problem in admitting that we are making huge profits,’’ he said and hoped that the games should continue for more days. The stadium — PAU route is not that busy on normal days but thanks to the over 5,000 visitors in the city their business is booming. The drivers, however, denied that they were charging more from the players.

‘‘We are charging the routine fare of Rs 4 per passenger’’ he claimed adding that fluctuation in fare might come when the visitors hired an auto on some special route.

A participant putting up in one of the hostels said they had to hire a rickshaw from their respective hostels for Rs 10 to reach the main gate of the university only and then hire an auto-rickshaw for Rs 4 to the stadium.

“The other day an athlete, Mr P. Sangar had to participate in an event. He waited for the bus for a long time as but none reached, he walked down to the Gate Number 2 of the PAU from Hostel Number 8. And believe me he won the gold medal in that event, “said a resident of Hostel Number 8 of the university.”

He said the participants are feeling cheated as the money spent on commuting was burning a hole in their pockets. “We would have bought small gifts for our family members back home if the organisers had been thoughtful and had provided better transport facilities to the participants.”

Riot victims’ tussle: official issues denial
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, November 24
In the wake of ongoing tussle between two rival groups of riot victims, the Assistant Commissioner (Grievances), Ms Anita Darshi, has denied that she had refused to entertain objections to the allotment of booths and other sites to the sikh migrants, allegedly under the influence of one particular group, claiming proximity to the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal).

Talking to Ludhiana Tribune, she said a group of riot victims, led by Mr Gurdev Singh Batalvi had come to her office with a representation, raising certain objections to the allotment of sites. There was an extended discussion between Mr Batalvi and Mr Surjit Singh Dugri, who was also present there in the capacity of an observer, nominated by the state government. Thereafter, Mr Batalvi and others, accompanying him, took back the representation of their own accord, saying they would mutually ‘settle’ the issue.

She further said she was duly assigned by the district authorities to receive the objections, if any, and examine them in accordance with the laid down rules and guidelines. To corroborate her claim, Ms Darshi said an affidavit by Mr Bhupinder Singh, another riot victim, who was accompanying Mr Batalvi had been received and placed on record.

Meanwhile, the All-India Sikh Students Federation (Badal) has come out openly in support of Sikh Migrants Welfare Society, headed by Mr Gurdev Singh Batalvi and has condemned the hooliganism and high handedness of the self-styled leader of riot victims, Mr Surjit Singh Dugri.

In a statement, AISSF activists — Mr Manmohan Singh, Mr Harcharan Singh Bajwa, Mr Navpreet Singh, Mr Gurmeet Singh Bhinder and Mr Avtar Singh Bhutta, while calling for stern action against those behind manhandling and assault on activists of migrants society at Mini Secretariat, have demanded the cancellation of allotment of booths and a CBI inquiry into the whole issue to bring out truth and bring the guilty to book.

Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, November 24
The population of females in Punjab is dwindling gradually following killing of the girl child in the womb. In order to highlight this grave problem a state-level workshop on female foeticide was organised by the Guru Angad Dev Sewa Society, the Punjab State Human Rights Commission and UNICEF at the Farmers’ Sewa Centre. The workshop concluded today.

The main purpose of the workshop was to discuss the causes of this serious malady, to fix the responsibility and find ways and means to stop this heinous crime. The first session was chaired by Dr Joginder Singh, Director, Health Services, who urged the people to co-operate with the government. Many eminent persons concerned with this issue like Geeta Atherey of UNICEF, Mr Bhatnagar of PSHRC, Dr K.S. Aulakh, Vice-Chancellor of PAU, put forward their views and solutions to solve this problem.

Dr Rainuka Dagar, a social researcher from Chandigarh, dwelt at length on the issues, causes and consequences of the adverse ratio in Punjab. She also spoke about different justifications people give about male child preference. Dr Surinder Singla, senior vice-president, IMA, Punjab, spoke strongly against sex determination and female foeticide and said that the IMA will not support any doctor found doing this henious act.

On the second day, all the participants were divided into four groups — medical, social, religious, administration and media.

The group leaders, after a discussion, presented the recommendations of their respective groups with a possible action plan. It was decided that this should not be the last effort. Rather, it should be the beginning. This message should be spread among common people.

Dr A.S. Nagpal, president of the Guru Angad Sewa Society, asked everyone to take a sacred vow not only to refuse sex determination tests but to discourage people about this obnoxious practice of female foeticide.

Residents irked over noise pollution
Shivani Bhakoo

Ludhiana, November 24
Noise pollution being caused by loudspeakers, hosiery and sewing machines, generators and microphones in residential areas and silence zones has not only created nuisance but also leads to discomfort to the city residents.

To keep a check on those violating of the Punjab Loudspeakers Act, 1956, residents of Dugri Urban Estate, Deep Nagar, Basti Jodhewal, Rani Jhansi Road, Field Ganj, Model Town, have written several letters to the Administration. They alleged that despite a ban on the use of loudspeakers by the District Magistrate, the noise pollution due to use of these during religions functions persisted in these areas.

Mr Acchra Singh, a retired superintendent at the CMO office while talking to this correspondent said no religion or community had right to add to the noise pollution on the grounds of religion. He said the reciting of prayers in full volume by outdoor speakers that disturbed the peace and tranquility of neighbourhood, should not be permitted in the city.

Mr Najar Singh, a resident of Shalimar Park, Dugri, said no religion permitted disturbance to old, ailing and infirm persons, students or small children. He said, “One should not forget that small babies, old persons and youngsters were all entitled to enjoy their right to sleep in a peaceful atmosphere. The ailing persons had the right to enjoy the quietness during leisure hours. Why should they be disturbed? The noise pollution in the city was increasing day by day”.

A resident of Basti Gujran, said on condition of anonymity that the noise caused by the hosiery and sewing machines was really irritating. He said, “The noise pollution is less during day time but it is very irritating at nights. These machines cause a lot of noise and kids too can’t sleep peacefully at night. They are mostly late for their schools because of disturbed sleep. But no one can stop the machines. Even if we say anything to them, they say that they are just workers and can’t help out it”.

Another resident complained that the labourers in the Basti Jodhewal area were very rude to the residents. He said, "On one hand there is lot of noise of these machines and further songs being played on tape recorders on full volume add salt to injury. If we tell them to lower the volume, they argue with us”.

Residents further complained that noise pollution was also leding to several complication including sleep disorders disruption in communication, loss of efficiency, hearing loss deafness, high blood pressure, depression, irritability, fatigue, mental stress and annoyance.

The residents also urged the Deputy Commissioner to control the noise pollution caused by machines, loudspeakers, microphones and generators so that people in the city could enjoy a peaceful life.

Creation of post flayed
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, November 24
The Fire Brigade Employees Union has condemned the passing of the creation of another post of Assistant Divisional Fire Officer (ADFO) in the Fire Department for the district by the Municipal Corporation.

At an emergency meeting of the union held here yesterday, Mr Rajinder Sharma, president of the union, said, “The Municipal Corporation should have not passed such a motion as one ADFO is sufficient for the district. It should try to fill the 46 vacant posts of fireman as at present only 40 firemen are working against the sanctioned 86 vacancies of firemen for the district.”

Mr Sharma alleged, “The state government has ordered filling of the vacant posts of firemen, but the Municipal Corporation is doing nothing substantial in this regard. “Besides this, there are 13 fire officers working in the district and no extra ADFO is required,” he added.

The union appealed to the Mayor, the Municipal Commissioner and councillors to review the matter again. It would not be in the interest of the state as the additional monthly emoluments would be about Rs 30,000, it added.
