Tribune News Service

New Delhi, May 23
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has said that with a people-friendly INC-led Government at the Centre, her government will very soon come up with a comprehensive relocation and rehabilitation policy for the slum dwellers in the NCT of Delhi.

Taking stock of the problems, including that of distribution of plots by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), faced by the people in resettlement colonies in Holambi Kalan, Dikshit, in a statement issued in the day, said her government was committed to providing all civic amenities to people shifted to the resettlement colonies.

Ms Dikshit said the policy of her government was not only to provide alternate plots but also basic civic infrastructure with proper sanitation, health, education, power, transport and water. She said she would take a round of all resettlement colonies, new as well as old, to ensure that the administration and civic agencies were delivering.

According to the statement, the chief minister’s visit to Holambi Kalan was in line with the Government of NCT of Delhi’s declared policy of relocation and rehabilitation with all civic amenities and as a follow-up of INC President Sonia Gandhi’s visit earlier this year.

The chief minister was accompanied by education minister Arvinder Singh Lovely, MLA Charan Singh Kandera, MCD Commissioner Rakesh Mehta, Food and Civil Supplies Commissioner GS Patnaik and senior officials of DJB, DTC, education department, health department and NDPL, which distributes electricity in North Delhi.

The chief minister said that it was her government’s unambiguous policy to ensure that whenever relocation of slums and jhuggi jhonpris took place, the people being shifted out were not only provided with alternative plots but also basic infrastructure and amenities.

Dikshit said that while the services were functional in Holambi Kalan, they were somewhat unsatisfactory. She issued instructions to the agencies concerned to provide more people-friendly services in those areas. Officials were also asked to submit an action taken report to the chief minister within a week.

Mother of three murders husband with lover’s aid
Parmindar Singh

Ghaziabad, May 23
A mother of three children strangled her husband with the help of her paramour in Modi Nagar. The police have arrested five accused, including the wife of the deceased and her paramour, in this connection. According to the police, the body recovered from Tibra Rajwahe on December 1, 2003 had not been identified. A few days ago the father of the victim, Jasveer, told the police that his son had been missing since December 1, 2003.

The police showed Jasveer’s father the photographs of missing persons, which are available in the police records. The father could identify one of the photographs as that of his missing son.

When the police interrogated the victim’s wife, Kavita, she confessed to having strangled him with the help of her paramour and three others.

Kavita, wife of Jasveer, told the police that they were married in Partapur 10 years ago. They had three children from this marriage. Following a dispute in the family, Jasveer and Kavita had started living separately in Bhupinderpuri colony of Modi Nagar.

Here, Kavita had allegedly developed illicit relations with Dr. Raj Singh, son of the landlord Tarachand. On the birthday of her son, she and Raj Singh had made her husband drink so much liquor that he became unconscious.

Later, Jasveer was taken to a bathroom where he was strangled with a chunneri. The body of the deceased was loaded on a rickshaw and dumped on Tibra road in the dead of the night.

Villagers protest against attack on witness

Sonepat, May 23
Four armed motorcycle-borne youths fired shots at bus driver Kuldeep when he was going on his bicycle on the Sonepat-Rohtak road near Sisana village, about 25 km from here, yesterday.

Kuldeep sustained bullet injuries and was rushed to the PGIMS at Rohtak for treatment. However, the alleged assailants managed to escape on their motorcycle after leaving two revolvers at the site. Some old enmity is stated to be behind the killing.

It is stated that Rajesh, elder brother of Kuldeep, was allegedly murdered on October 7 last year and Kuldeep was an eyewitness. Since then, he was being threatened with dire consequences if he turned up in the court to give evidence in this case. But Kuldeep failed to relent in this regard. When he was on his way to a school on his bicycle yesterday, he was waylaid by the alleged assailants. They have been identified as Praveen, Sunil, Rajbir and Virender.

The Kharkhauda police have registered a case against the alleged assailants who are still at large.

Livid over the indifferent attitude of the SHO of the Kharkhauda police station in arresting the alleged accused, the residents of Sisana village today blocked the national highway between Rohtak and Sonepat for nearly four hours.

However, the blockade was lifted when the DSP (Headquarters), Mr Arun Nehra, reached the spot and promised the villagers prompt action against the alleged accused.

A large number of vehicles from Sonepat-Kharkhauda and Rohtak side remained stranded as the road was strewn with tyres and boulders.

The villagers have reportedly made it clear to the DSP that they do not have faith in the investigation by the SHO, Kharkhauda, Mr Yaad Ram, and demanded that the case be handed over to another police officer. According to another report, a warden, Radhey Sham, sustained head injuries when he was allegedly attacked by another warden, Rakesh, in the district jail here yesterday.

The injured jail warden was admitted to the local civil hospital for treatment. He is stated to be out of danger.

The Jail Superintendent and the police are still investigating the case. However, the police have not yet registered any case in this connection. The use of abusive language was stated to be the main cause of the assault.


Beat the exam result blues, don’t just stop having fun
Smriti Kak Ramachandran
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, May 23
It’s the time of the year when the heart skips a beat, sweat races down the spine and even the latest juicy gossip fails to hold your attention. For there is a more serious issue weighing on the mind, the seemingly all-important CBSE board results.

For thousands of students who took the board exams this year, May is the month for keeping the fingers crossed and keeping the channels of communication with the Almighty open.

“For the last few weeks the condition has worsened. We scan the papers daily to find out when the D-day will be. It’s hard to concentrate on anything when all you think of is what the results will foretell”, says Kunal, who is awaiting his class X results.

Kunal is not an exception. There are hundreds like him who are steadily loosing sleep over the “impending results”. But doctors are worried about the ones who, unable to tackle the pressure, often succumb to it.

With the number of students committing suicide, following poor results or in anticipation, on the rise, experts are busy handing out tips to help overcome the stress.

“Exams and results are an occasion for high anxiety. Some students are unable to cope with this; for them this is a crisis, and they need to be given help, so that they could emerge stronger from this”, says Dr. Samir Parikh, a psychiatrist, who works extensively with students.

To stem the negative emotions in such stressful times Dr. Parikh suggests: “It is important for parents, school, and students to be able to identify a student in crisis and help him out. If the friends do not support and the student feels left out and inferior, it leads to more disturbances. Nagging, criticism, insults, punishment and similar gestures, suggesting disappointment, lead to loss of self-esteem and the child develops a self-harming tendency”.

He further says, “Schools should show support, be positive, avoid comparisons, give extra guidance and help and make the student feel important”.

Parents, say experts, should watch out for signs of sadness, crying, social withdrawal, neglect of self-care, sleep impairment, somatic complaints like pains and aches and appetite reduction. Expressions of low self-esteem, sense of loss or failure, inability of the child to have fun or enjoy routine activities, irritability, loss of drive and feeling of hopelessness and helplessness also call for professional help.

Professional help has come in the form of helplines run by NGOs; even the CBSE has been effectively dealing with anxious students for the last few years. However, the fact remains that increasing competition and the race for marks has resulted in some students facing severe psychological disorders.

“The ability to recognize the maladaptive thoughts that may be exaggerating one’s fear of a bad result can help counteract these thoughts. Once you closely examine these thoughts and the ritualistic processes that generate them, you’ll see how unrealistic they really are. Challenge those thoughts that tell you that you are a failure and that you can’t succeed. Just remind yourself that it was just another exam and with effort you will do better in the next attempt”, advises Dr. Parikh.

He also cautions students against getting into a negative frame of mind and refraining from having fun. “The first thing that you should do is make sure you do not get into a chain of negative thoughts that make you feel bad and effect your self-esteem. And one of the common mistakes an individual makes is to change his lifestyle totally, assuming that if he cuts himself from all leisure and fun with friends and family, one can study and do better. This is a mistake, so don’t stop having fun”.


Hotels in walled city in a tizzy
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, May 23
A large number of hotel owners in the walled city are in a tizzy. They have received notices from the Licensing Department of the Delhi Police, directing them to procure ‘no objection certificates’ (NOCs) from land owning agencies, stating that the hotels are regularized and sanctioned as per latest norms. The notices have been issued despite the fact that most of these hotels fall in the special category, which does not call for such NOCs.

The hotel owners said that “the licensing division has asked us to get the NOC from the land owning authorities as per the latest guidelines, but our hotels come in the special category which does not require regularization and other certificates.”

“The Delhi Police licensing department has itself mentioned this on another page attached to the notices,” pointed out a hotel owner.

The former Union Urban Development Minister, Mr. Jagmohan, had created the special category for hotels in the walled city area. All the hotels constructed before 1999 fall in this category, hotel owners claim.

On May 8, 2001, a meeting was held in the presence of the Special Commissioner of Police, Mr. R. K. Sharma, in which it was decided that the hotel owners should deposit a permission fee to run the hotels at the rate of 2.5 per cent of the difference between the commercial and residential rates as notified by the L and DO, Ministry of Urban Development, vide its notification number J-22011/4/96-LD dated April 16, 1999. Later, when the matter was handed over to the MCD, it further reduced this amount to Rs 1000 per room per year in its meeting held on May 14, 2002. The hotel owners alleged that they were depositing the license fees as asked by the MCD thereafter regularly. “Now, why is the licensing department of Delhi Police harassing us unnecessarily”, they questioned.

The hotel owners alleged that there are around 500 hotels that have mushroomed in the walled city after 1999 in connivance with the local police and civic authorities; these hotels were being run without licenses. “The notices should be sent only to those hotels that have come up after 1999, not to all of us,” said Ram Kumar, another hotel owner.


UPA govt won’t last : SP unit chief
Our Correspondent

Rewari, May 23
The Haryana Samajwadi party chief, Ms Kanta Aladia, today stated that the Manmohan Singh led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government would not last long as the coalition was quite incoherent and seemingly irreconcilable.

Without hurling any aspersions on the constituents, she said the “ inherent contradictions” among the alliance partners might not permit the UPA government to run even more than a year. Things could also start rolling out as soon as the constituents concerned started gearing up for the coming assembly elections in Bihar, Kerala, West Bengal, Haryana and other states, she said while addressing a press conference.

Regarding the outcome of the Lok Sabha election in Haryana, the state Samajwadi party president asserted that no one should remain in doubt that it was clearly a public mandate against the ruling INLD.

She went on to say that it would be something preposterous on the part of the Congress, which had bagged nine out of the 10 seats in the state, to entertain any wishful thinking about its towering “popularity and acceptability” among the masses.

Making a specific mention of the Samajwadi party’s electoral performance in Ahirwal, where its candidate, Mr. Raghu Yadav, had polled a hefty chunk of votes in the four assembly segments of Rewari, Bawal, Jatusana and Ateli, Ms Aladia informed that they were now all set to strengthen the party organisation in the Ahirwal as well as the Mewat regions of the state.

She also informed that the party would contest the coming Haryana Vidhan Sabha elections in a big way.


South Delhi to get water once a day
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, May 23
Residents of South and South-West Delhi will receive water supplied by the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) only once a day, instead of twice, from Monday.

The DJB chief executive officer, Mr. P. K. Tripathi, today said the Board was resorting to once a day distribution because of the acute scarcity of drinking water in these areas.

Instead of two hours each in morning and evening, now the supply will be for four hours once a day. The DJB will publicise the timings in different areas tomorrow, Mr Tripathi said.

The new pattern of supply will be in Greater Kailash, Sant Nagar, East of Kailash, Kailash Colony, Panchsheel, Dakshinpuri and adjoining areas, Garhi and Chirag Delhi, the areas which fall at the tail end of the distribution system.

“Everybody will benefit from the new once-a-day supply. It will definitely improve the situation,” said Mr Tripathi.

The once-a-day supply will be the norm this summer. According to the DJB CEO, with the availability of water remaining unchanged during summer and in the absence of ground water, the Board could only improve water management.

“We are planning to revamp the distribution network. We will also sign a memorandum of understanding with our employees to provide better service,” said Mr Tripathi.

The city requires 850 mega gallons per day (mgd) during summer against the supply of 670 mgd.


Child succumbs to chickenpox in Sonepat

Sonepat: A four-year-old child, reportedly, died of chicken pox in a private nursing home in the Model town area here yesterday.

According to a report, not only chicken pox, but cholera, malaria and several water-borne diseases have spread in the city and elsewhere in the district, clearly potraying the failure of the Health Department in controlling these diseases. The district authorities too remain silent spectators and have failed to take any preventive steps to check such type of diseases.

Since the onset of the summer season, contaminated drinking water is being supplied in most of the areas. Repeated public complaints to the authorities of the Public Health

Department have fallen on deaf ears. Leakage of water from the saluice valves and underground water pipes was the main cause of the supply of contaminated water supply, it is learnt.

Moreover, sale of sugarcane juice, sub-standard ice creams and cut fruit under unhygienic conditions is only contributing to spreading cholera in the city and even in rural areas.

Villages in Kharkhauda and Rai blocks are the worst hit.

Private nursing homes and private clinics are flooded with patients suffering from cholera, malaria and water borne diseases. OC
