Budda Nullah panel to find land for sewage
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, November 6
To combat pollution caused by sewage in the Budda Nullah, the state government-constituted Budda Nullah Cleaning Committee today decided to identify a piece of barren land lining the nullah to form a lake from the water collected after treatment and use it for irrigation purposes.

The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by committee coordinator P. Ram here today, which was attended by representatives from other departments, including the district administration, the Municipal Corporation, the Forest Department, the Irrigation Department, the Sewerage Department and the Punjab Pollution Control Board.

The plan would be submitted to the state government for its final nod. It also asked the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) to make a documentary on Budda Nullah to study the pollution caused by various sources.

‘‘In the past it was generally believed that the PPCB was alone responsible for the state of affairs in the nullah. But later on, it was found that there were other departments too that had to share the blame. The documentary would clear the situation all the more,’’ said an official on of the PPCB on the condition of anonymity.

The officials said around 58 villages from Neelon till the confluence point of the nullah and the Sutlej were discharging sewage into the water body.

If the water could be treated and collected on some barren land, the water body would be cleared of pollution. The water thus collected could be used for irrigating crops.

Govt doing little to promote Punjabi language: experts
Mahesh Sharma

Mandi Ahmedgarh, November 6
Holding successive governments responsible for deterioration in the standard of Punjabi language in the state, lovers of the language have urged leaders of various political parties to shun politics at the cost the language.

They have urged bureaucrats to accord due importance to the mother tongue in the state.

Grammatic and spelling mistakes on walls and boards in all corners of the state showed poorly on the “efforts” of the authorities to promote the language. They felt that the observance of “Punjabi Week” by the Language Department was a mere ritual.

Major errors exhibited frequently in front of higher authorities revealed that the authorities - democratic and bureaucratic - had little concern for the language.

Listing some bloopers, they said spellings of simple words in slogans of "Sarav Sikhya Abhyan" displayed above the seat of a District Education Officer and a large number of spelling mistakes in the National Anthem on a display board at the office of Principal of an aided senior secondary school at Kup village, near here, only reflected the concern the authorities had for the language.

Dr H.S. Walia, Head, Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, Punjabi University, Patiala, alleged that the authorities at the Language Department had departed from their fundamental job of preserving and promoting the language in the state.

"Controversy over issue of the Shiromani awards during recent years showed that the department had failed to select experts in various fields," argued Dr Walia, adding that the process had allegedly been shadowed by political clout.

Blaming the government for trying to adopt individualistic approach, he claimed that the outstanding work of publishing books in Punjabi language could have achieved 100 per cent success had the Chief Minister contributed Rs 40 lakh to the department, instead of spending it on a function organised to honour a writer.

Prof Amarjit Singh Prag, Director, Guru Har Karishan Educational Society, alleged that the department had failed to implement the use of the mother tongue in offices of the state government.

"A majority of officials communicate in English or Hindi," claimed Mr Parag.

He pointed out that the Chief Minister had not bothered to attend official functions organised by the Language Department to observe annual Punjabi Week during past years.

Professor Parag lamented that even Punjabi University, which had been established to promote the language, had ended up being just another university.

Jatinder Kumar Bhola, Municipal Council president and former office-bearer of the Ahmedgarh Sahitya Sabha, alleged that the successive governments had been ignoring the development. He said a majority of bureaucrats felt ashamed while conversing in Punjabi language.

Reema Jain murder case transferred
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana November 6
The Sessions Judge, Mr Harbans Lal, today transferred the infamous Reema Jain murder case to the court of Additional Sessions Judge, Mr H.P.S. Mahal.

The son of deceased, Mr Bhanu Partap Jain, had moved an application before the Sessions Court for transferring the case to the court of some other Additional Sessions Judge with the plea that number of hearings have taken place but due to overrush of cases, the charges were not framed by the trial court, resulting in the delay of trial.

It was claimed by him that it was a case of very sensational nature. In the interest of justice, the trial needed to be held expeditiously.

However, the counsel for accused, Mr Anil Jain, had submitted that proceedings in the case were delayed due to the prosecuting agency. There was no fault of theirs. The accused was in custody for more than one year and he did not want to delay the proceedings.

The prosecution had taken much time in even supplying the complete copies of the challan presented against them.

The Sessions Judge had called the comments from the Judge of trial court and he had also referred the case to Sessions Judge for transfer.

Keeping in view the reference made by the Judge of the trial court, the Sessions Judge transferred the case.

An FIR in the murder case was registered on July 30, 2005, under Sections 302, 201, 404 and 364 of IPC at the Police Station Division No: 5, Ludhiana.

Fruit dealers shift to New Sabzi Mandi
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, November 6
Fruit dealers finally shifted from Old Sabzi Mandi following the inauguration of the fruit shed in the New Subzi Mandi near Jalandhar bypass here today.

"Seventytwo of the 80 arhtiyas have already shifted and trading also started," president of Sabzi Mandi Association Subhash Ahuja said.

Due to insufficient space in the Old Sabzi Mandi, fruit vendors had been facing problems. Not only had loading and unloading become difficult, trade was being affected as a result and the area also suffered traffic problem. The fruit shed, which is one of the 14 sheds in the New Sabzi Mandi spread in an area of 54 acres, is expected to significantly increase trade and market fee.

"Space had become a big constraint. Now we have space to keep fruits that come from places like Srinagar, which earlier used to go to Delhi and other areas. This way we can cater to mandis of Haryana and around," Mr Ahuja added.

Other sheds of the new mandi, which is quite spacious, are likely to be opened gradually. It would have facilities for storage, banks, post offices and a cinema as well. A rest house and kisan ghar for farmers is also planned to be constructed. Sops are expected to be allotted soon to all agents.

Signature drive to link elevated road with rly overbridge
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, November 6
Activists of Tagore Nagar Mandal of the Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha today started a signature campaign against the non-linking of railway overbridge with the elevated road, with 480 residents and shopkeepers joining the cause on the first day.

Led by morcha office-bearer Sandeep Kapoor, a number of activists started the campaign from a sweets shop in Ghumar Mandi falling in ward No. 47.

Almost all residents and shopkeepers signed on the charter of demands that the overbridge should be completed and linked to the elevated road.

The morcha activists said the residents felt cheated as the project had failed to live up to their expectations even though the Congress-run government had spent Rs 51 crore on the elevated road, which was not beneficial to city residents, especially those of Civil Lines, Field Ganj, Chaura Bazar and the old city, as it did not connect them to the new road.

The leaders said as per the original design conceived during the SAD-BJP regime in the state, the elevated road had to be connected to Civil Lines through the overbridge, Raikhy cinema, multiplex parking of the MC and machinery market.

However, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh inaugurated the incomplete project to take credit.

They said work on the overbridge in Civil Lines had been lying on the back burner for over one and a half years and no efforts were being made to get the it restarted.

The project was worth Rs 4.26 crores when it was started. But now the delay had caused the estimate to grow to Rs 10 crore, said the leaders.

Mr Kapoor said had councillors of the areas affected by non-linking of road taken the project seriously, residents would not have suffered.

The activists said the residents of Field Ganj were the worst hit as the traffic coming from the old city was going through Field Ganj to pass through Jagraon bridge. It had resulted in total chaos.

Mr Kapoor said the campaign would continue till the end of this week and residents of four wards would be covered. The charter of demands would then be submitted to the Commissioner for further action.

“We will also file a PIL against the wastage of funds that has been caused due to delay in project,’’ he added.

Death sentence to Saddam a 'judicial murder'
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, November 6
The medical fraternity, while terming the death sentence to Saddam Hussain as a 'judicial murder', has apprehended that instead of containing terrorism, this act will give a fillip to it and promote further instability worldwide.

Seeking immediate intervention of the world community and a fair trial under UNO supervision, the doctors said the whole world knew that this 'war against terrorism' had motives other than containing terrorism, and was practically an economic war for domination of oil trade.

In a joint statement here today, several prominent doctors, medical teachers and functionaries of professional bodies maintained that even the most hardened criminal was entitled to a free and fair trial. "It is very unfortunate that the very procedure of the trial of Saddam Hussain violated all norms of civilized and legal propriety. The way the jury was altered from time to time, defence lawyers were eliminated and the very fact that the prime minister of Iraq predicted the outcome of the trial before the jury announced the verdict, is highly condemnable."

They said in the absence of a free and fair trial, no fair minded individual would believe the outcome. In fact, the present verdict eroded the faith of the people world over in the very institutions of democracy. It has also revealed the true face of ‘Anglo-American democracy and human rights'.

The war in Iraq, the statement added, had given rise to a lot of medical and health problems which the medical fraternity could not ignore. "The prestigious medical journal Lancet has brought out tales of untold miseries and killing of more than six lakh children by American military action. We are sure that a much greater number of innocent people in Iraq are suffering from lack of food and medical attention."

The doctors alleged that the military action in this region had violated all norms of international treaties and it was the moral duty of governments world over to intervene, so that this genocide was stopped. The gross violation of human rights, carpet bombing of villages, and killing of innocent children could not be justified under any circumstances.

The signatories to the statement included Dr LS Chawla, former Vice Chancellor; Dr PL Garg, Registrar, Baba Farid University of Health Sciences; Dr Balbir Shah, former secretary; Dr Navdeep Singh Khaira, president; Dr Sanjiv Uppal, secretary Medical Teachers Association, DMCH; Dr BS Dhillon, president; Dr Barjinder Singh Sohal, general secretary; Dr NR Gupta, secretary Punjab State Medical and Dental Teachers Association; Dr Hardeep Singh, president; Dr Ajay Bagga, press secretary PCMS Association; Dr Gurmej Singh Gill, president, IMA, Punjab; Dr PS Sahota, central committee member, IMA; and Dr Arun Mitra, secretary, Indian Doctors for Peace and Development.

Tax officials crack down on 'peti mafia'
Kuldip Bhatia

Ludhiana, November 6
In what can be termed as a body blow to the infamous 'peti mafia' operating at the parcel-booking office of the Indian Railways here, the officials of the Mobile Wing of the Excise and Taxation department have seized more than 250 outward-bound packages of hosiery goods and knitting yarn on Saturday.

These packages were brought to the railway station by the mafia for despatch to various places all over the country evading value-added tax (VAT), without proper documents and in most of the cases without payment of freight charges to the railways.

Talking to the Ludhiana Tribune today, Mr Mahavir Singh, Assistant Excise and Taxation Commissioner (AETC), Mobile Wing, who had headed the operation under a tight security cover, said the staff at the parcel office had denied having booked these packages which were lying in the open.

Since no documents were made available and no one owned up the consignments, the packages were seized for alleged evasion of taxes.

He said the process of opening the packages and making complete inventory of goods had already been taken in hand and the department would put up notices giving details of the seized stocks so that the concerned parties could come forward for clearances of goods on payment of due tax and penalty thereon.

"In fact, representatives of some firms have already contacted the officials for releasing their stocks."

According to the AETC, the operatives of mafia were not only coming handy to the trade and industry in the mega city in the evasion of VAT by ensuring safe delivery of consignments to the railway parcel office, for a fee of course, but in a majority of the cases, the packages were loaded on trains during night and early morning to different destinations without proper booking, thereby, causing huge loss by way of freight charges to the railways as well.

In this context, the connivance of railway staff at various levels could not be ruled out, he pointed out.

In the wake of coming winter, the production of hosiery goods in the city was on the peak and large consignments of goods were being sent to different parts of the country. As a result, the mafia was also learnt to be having its hands full, bringing a large number of packages to railway station here without proper documents which were then loaded on different trains after being booked or without booking with the help of certain 'obliging' railway employees.

It was pertinent to mention here that till now, the well-entrenched mafia had proved to be a big thorn in the flesh of enforcement staff of Excise and Taxation Department and had been defying all steps taken by the department to plug the huge tax evasion by the trade and industry through despatch of goods to outstations by railways.
