Canal mishap: PSEB ignored complaints?
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, June 19
The canal mishap in which six persons died due to electrocution could have been averted had the PSEB authorities responded immediately to the complaints about the ‘tilted’ pole made by certain shopkeepers a week before the incident.

While the PSEB authorities denied receiving any such complaint at the senior level, investigations by this correspondent revealed that kiosk owners doing business near the Dugri bridge had complained to the PSEB about the ‘tilted’ pole six days before the incident.

Jatinder Singh of Taneja meat shop said he had complained to the PSEB about the pole. “Some wires pass above our shop also. In case the wires fell on the shop, we might be electrocuted,” he feared.

Two persons, Kulwant Singh and Harbhajan Singh, who saved many lives, also corroborated his statement. They jumped into the canal along with Kalla and Jassa, who died while saving others.

“We had complained to the PSEB on June 9. A team of the PSEB inspected the pole and brought a new pole, saying they would replace it in a few days. But they did not return. But when the incident took place, they changed it within 15 minutes,” they said.

Mr Kuldip Singh, XEN, PSEB, said no such complaint was received or was in the notice of senior officials. He said the PSEB was not at fault as the Municipal Corporation pole had caused electrocution and the canal banks had weakened due to soil erosion.



Deaths fail to deter youngsters
Kulvir Singh

Ludhiana, June 19
No lessons seem to have been learnt from the recent tragic mishap at the Dugri bridge in which six persons were drowned after being electrocuted. Youngsters, especially children, flocked the canal today for swimming and bathing .

Just four days after the incident, they were seen enjoying a splash in the canal waters. Unmindful of the lurking danger and a ban imposed on swimming in the canal, youngsters seem to have forgotten the tragic incident.

The city police which was patrolling the banks of the canal since the June 15 evening incident also does not seem to bother now. A Tribune team spotted cops standing near the Ludhiana-Ferozepore railway line as well as the Dugri bridge but they did not stop anyone from having a dip in the canal.

The Irrigation Department had already expressed its helplessness. The notice boards announcing the ban and barbed wires erected as fence at key points have been stolen by miscreants. Only a couple of such boards are seen along the canal route from Lohara village to South City.

A senior official of the Irrigation Department, wishing not to be quoted, said it was the job of the police to prevent the youngsters. He said the district magistrate should promulgate ban orders for swimming in the canal to strengthen the hands of the police.

The youngsters, however, argued that the government should provide them a safe place to swim.

Sonu, a 15-year-old son of a farmer said they have no other means to beat the heat and the canal is their only respite, “We are poor people. We do not have the comfort of the ACs or the coolers. The ice cold water is only our saviour from the blistering heat’’

Another youngster Inderjit said the government should make a small distributary from the canal near the leisure valley where they all can swim safely. He suggested that divers or expert swimmers could be posted there to prevent any untoward incident.

Khanna, June 19
Police will extend supervision near religious palaces in the area as the smugglers have increased their activities near mandirs and gurudwaras. Police claimed that two heroin smugglers were arrested today from two different religious places and 2.5 kg of heroin worth Rs 2.5 crore was recovered.

SSP, Khanna, Naunihal Singh, said in a press conference that one smuggler was arrested on Saturday while the other was arrested today. He said the smugglers had connections in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi.

The SSP said that following the complaints of increasing drug addiction in the area a special campaign was launched to nab the smugglers.

Police received information that a big haul of drugs was expected to reach near Gurudwara Manji Sahib Kotan in Khanna sub-division. Following the information a police party, including DSP Khanna Rajeshwar Singh Sidhu and SHO Sadar Police station, reached at Gurudwara Manji Sahib. The police officials surrounded the area. One person was noticed coming on the wrong side at G T Road near gurudwara. When police signalled him to stop he tried to escape but was arrested.

During search, 2 kg of heroin was recovered from his possession. The accused, identified as Puran Singh, told police that the drugs were being supplied to India from countries like Afghanistan. He was distributing the heroin to the small smugglers. He revealed that he had supplied half kg of heroin to Jarnail Singh a resident Lalheri Road Khanna today. A case under N D P C act has been registered against him.

Following the information given by Puran Singh police party started looking for Jarnail Singh. He was later arrested near a temple situated in Army camping ground. Half kg of heroin was recovered from his possession. During interrogation he told the police that he was waiting for a customer from Delhi. Police claimed that Jarnail Singh was a known smuggler and many case of opium smuggling had been registered against him in Ferozepur district.

It’s vote-bank politics: Janata Yuva Morcha
Amarjit Thind
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, July 19
The decision of Andhra Pradesh Cabinet regarding the grant of 5 per cent reservation for Muslims in government jobs and educational institutions has drawn criticism from the Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha.

“Terming the yesterday’s decision as violative of the letter and spirit of the constitution,” Mr Vineet Joshi, member, National Executive BJP (Youth wing), added that since the adoption of the constitution, religion has never been the basis of any category of reservations.

He further added that they were unable to find any logic on religion-based reservation that has already been rejected way back in 1947 by the Constituent Assembly’s Advisory Committee on Fundamental Rights, Minorities and Tribal and Excluded Areas. This advisory body was headed by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and comprised of Dr B.R. Ambedkar, Dr S.P.Mukherjee, Maulana Azad, Dr K.M. Munshi, Mr Purshottam Das Tandon, Pandit Govind Vallabh Pant, Sh. Gopinath Bardoloi with Pandit Nehru as Special Invitee.

Mr Joshi further added that as the backward Muslims had already been covered under mandal commission recommendations then why this move under the title ‘reservation for Muslims’ by a party which has been principally associated with India’s freedom moment. “It is nothing but Congress party’s surrender to the politics of appeasement for the perpetuating its hold over the minority vote-bank,” he said.

He said that it was a retrograde move, which, if not immediately reverted will sow the poisonous seed for the growth of communal movement that led to the tragic partition of our motherland.

He stated that the present leadership of the Congress party neither knew and nor seemed to care for the history for India. However, one would expect it to know at least the history of congress party itself and be consistent with its own thinking on the issue of reservations. They must recall that Pt Nehru in a letter addressed to all CMs on June 27 1961 saying: “I have referred above to efficiency and to our getting out of our traditional ruts. This necessitates our getting out of the old habits of reservations and particular privileges being given to this cast or that group... I dislike any kind of reservation, more particular in services. I react strongly against anything which leads to inefficiency and second rate standards.... If we go in for reservations on communal and caste basis, we swamp the bright and able people and remain second-rate or third-rate. I want my country to be a first class country in every thing. The moment we encourage the second-rate or third-rate, we are lost. I am grieved to learn that how far the business of reservation has gone based on communal considerations..... This ways lie not only folly but disaster.”

Mr Joshi added: “BJP wish to make it categorically clear that we have not cited Nehru’s views to endorse them in their entirety.

The BJP believes that reservations are indeed needed to help SCs, STs, and OBCs to overcome their social and economic backwardness.

The point we wish to make is two-fold: Nehru was aware of the limitation of reservations as the sole instrumentality for the socio-economic uplift of those who are socially and economically backward. Secondly, and more relevant to our 
present context, he was totally opposed to reservations on communal considerations.

Ludhiana Calling

Hapless PSEB linemen

It is generally said that defence personnel risk their lives to save the country from enemy. But nobody sings anything in the praise of linemen of Punjab State Electricity Board who brave all weathers and risk their lives while climbing up a pole for rectifying a snag. The other day sentinel witnessed a lineman carrying out repairs while climbing on a precariously hung wooden ladder. While many of them lose their lives during their routine work, the board should provide them required infrastructure so that their family do not have to lose a dear member.

Ban plastic bags

In Himachal Pradesh the govt with the cooperation of the people has been successful in banning the plastic bags which were degrading the environment. They have become so conscious that even the parshad from Vaishno Devi comes in cloth bags nicely sealed with valcrove which earlier came in plastic bags. Why cannot we all start cleanliness campaign in our city by carrying cloth bags when we go shopping and say firmly ‘no’ to plastic bags. Let each one take the responsibility of motivating 10 other people not to use plastic bags. We owe it to our coming generations to live in a cleaner environment .

Traffic chaos in Meena Bazaar

Parallel to Chaura Bazaar of the city runs a long narrow lane that runs through Meena Bazaar that sells all kinds of provisions, sweets, herbs, and even has jeweller’s shops. Yesterday, Sentinel in a rickshaw had to pass through that bazaar to reach basati bazaar . The traffic was chaotic even at 1.3pm when the heat was maximum. Cycles, scooters, rickshaws, carts all vied to overtake each other in the narrow lane with the result that the pedestrians have to walk on their own peril. Soon the rickshaw journey ended as three to four scooters were so parked that no rickshaw could pass either way. Rule of jungle prevailed i.e. ‘might is right’. Neither the shopkeepers nor the buyers seemed to be bothered about the unruly traffic. It is high time bottlenecks are removed from that narrow bazaar and the lane made safe for pedestrians. Ban the two and three wheelers and make it walkers’ zone only. Time we got civilized.

Is anybody listening?

If one happens to frequent the mini secretariat in Ludhiana, one finds several faces who have been making rounds of the Deputy Commissioner’s office for getting justice. Though several DCs have come and gone, these people’s work has not been done by anybody. Despite having documents supporting their cause, these persons, though covered extensively by mediapersons while highlighting their plights are only left to make rounds of these offices. Many of them are very old and are too frail to even walk properly are seen waiting outside his office. Is anybody going to listen to them?

Violators or enforcers

It is a common sight in the city to see zealous cops challaning motorists and two wheeler drivers for not obeying traffic signals and other violations. But are they obeying the rules themselves ? No, not really. ASI and SI level cops on motorcycles can be seen doing the rounds only wearing a cap and not the mandatory helmets. Similarly, many of them are seen jumping the red lights on their motorbikes while the public men are seen watching them on various traffic chowks. Do they think wearing uniform and wielding a stick means they can flout the rules?

Please value life

Life costs nothing in this part of the world if the recent deaths of drowning in canal after electrocution is any indication. While so many lives were lost, the departments who were responsible for this criminal negligence were passing the buck to each other and were not able to shoulder the responsibility of the incident. Despite the fact that it was a hair-raising incident and a loosely erected electric pole was responsible for the tragedy, no responsibility was fixed on the defaulters. When the mediapersons queried whether any action was taken against the officials responsible, the authorities were seen accusing each other. One wonders for how long will this happen? Please start valuing life!

Of magicians and astrologer

Astrologers and magicians seem to have a great market in the city. If one astrologer or a magician leaves the city another makes his grand entry and starts advertising in newspapers and other kinds of media. The city has already witnessed a number of astrologers, vastu consultants, tarot card readers, feng shui experts and palmists and at the same time magicians. After Shankar Samrat it was the turn of Jadugar Samraj, followed by O.P. Sharma. The pamphlets being circulated in the city of late have announced the arrival of a magician woman Chingli Phungli.

Heat wave

Soaring mercury is forcing the city residents to stay indoors most of the times. Even those persons, who depend on their daily wages and have to work in sun are preferring to stay indoors. The other day a colleagues rickshaw puller asked her to make her arrangements for reaching the office for some days. When she asked the reason he said that the heat wave was rendering him useless and he wanted to rest. But what would he do to earn his livelihood? he was asked and pat came the reply, ‘‘I will keep lying under a tree outside a temple and depend on alms for some days.’’

Congress accused of supporting militants
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, June 19
A former Union Minister and senior BJP leader, Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad, today charged the Congress government in Punjab with lending overt and covert support to militant groups for ulterior political motives.

Addressing mediapersons here, Mr Prasad said this border state had underwent the agony of terrorism for well over a decade and even the Congress have had a tough time in dealing with the menace. Many a precious human lives were lost during the period, the militants ruled the roost. He, however, maintained that circumstantial evidence pointed towards the Congress hand behind the recent spurt in terrorist activities in the region and the intelligence goof up behind reported moves to reorganise militant outfits in Punjab and elsewhere.

Mr Prasad, who was in the city to address a day-long media workshop organised by the party, remarked that the ruling Congress might be eyeing the general elections in the state which were less than two years away in its bid to create terror among the minds of the people for its own political compulsions.

“But the game Congress leaders are playing is a dangerous one and it can lead to a situation which will spell doom for the state and its people.”

He said the state could usher in peace and prosperity only if the anti-national forces were dealt with an iron hand and a ‘casual approach’ could prove disastrous.

Commenting on attempts by the UPA government in the Centre to improve bilateral relations with Pakistan, the BJP leader regretted that the entire process had become Kashmir centric. “There are several other core issues concerning the two countries which needed to be discussed and settled.”

He felt that a completely erroneous impression was sought to be created about the status of Hurriayat leaders, who were projected like the real representatives of the people of Kashmir during their recent visit to Pakistan. There was a lawfully elected government in place in Jammu and Kashmir and it should be the elected state government to talk about the future of the state and its people and not any self-styled pressure groups.



SOS call by NRI wife sends cops in a tizzy
Mahesh Sharma

Mandi Ahmedgarh, June 19
An SOS call by a Canada-based NRI woman that her husband was getting remarried in a village near here, sent the Jagroan police in a tizzy as the latter had to rush to the village to intervene.

But the efforts of the dejected woman proved futile when the groom claimed to the police that he was a permanent resident of Canada and had divorced his former wife as per the Canadian rules.

The marriage was finally solemnised as Mr Rajiv Ahir, Senior Superintendent of Police, Jagraon, maintained that they could not stop the ceremony as the groom had claimed that he had legally divorced the complainant.

Ms Gagandeep Kaur, a native of Ghungrana village, now settled in Canada in a fax message to the police yesterday had urged the latter to intervene and save her marriage. In her complaint she had claimed that she had married this youth of Mohammadpura three years ago.

Ms Gaganpreet alleged that his husband started harassing her on one pretext or the other immediately after the marriage. After she became pregnant, instead of supporting her he started living separately and threatened to desert her in case she gave birth to a female child.

Gaganpreet lost all hopes of reunion when she gave birth to a daughter who is 33-month-old now. While talking to the Ludhiana Tribune on telephone from Canada Gaganpreet said: “My mother-in-law instigated my husband to desert me as she aspired to have a grandson and was not ready to accept the law of nature. She lodged a false complaint against me and my parents when we came to India last year,” she alleged.

When a few days earlier she came to know that her husband was going to marry a girl of Pherurai village near Raikot on Saturday through her relatives in India, she requested the SSP Jagraon to intervene and stop the marriage which was scheduled to take place today. But the police could not stop the same.

Mr Satpal Singh Zaildar, said his daughter Gaganpreet Kaur married Lakha of Mohamadpura village near Raikot on January 6, 2002.

Mr Ahir held that the marriage could not be stopped as the groom had claimed that he had already divorced the complainant. “As we did not have anything to support the claim lodged by the complainant, we were not in a position to interfere. But we would investigate the matter and proceed as per law,” said Mr Ahir.

Refuting the claim regarding divorce Ms Gaganpreet said: “Though we have been living separately for a long period, I received no intimation regarding such orders from any court in India or abroad. Otherwise also he has to return my istridhan, compensation and maintenance allowance for my daughter.”
