Drive against dengue, malaria
Schools a neglected lot

Ludhiana, September 4
Shocking yet true, the ongoing drive for prevention of dengue and malaria has not been carried out effectively in a majority of government and private schools in the city and district at large. As a result, schoolchildren are falling prey to malaria and dengue, which is evident from the large number of such cases coming to doctors.

The working of the municipal corporation and department of health and family welfare has once again come under scanner, as schoolchildren spend 6-8 hours in schools, hence they are more exposed to mosquito bites. Thus, fogging followed by regular visits by the anti-larvae wing and conducting awareness programmes is a must in the schools.

Dr Vineet Juneja, a private doctor practicing near Arora Palace said, “I have received more than 20 cases of school students suffering from dengue and malaria in the last two weeks. It is rather surprising that the administration is doing little to check the spread of malaria and dengue in the schools.”

Requesting anonimity, a school principal from Haibowal Kalan said, “No teams from any department have visited our school for fogging or spraying. The students have fallen prey to malaria, as a result are missing their classes.”

There have been a large number of cases in the rural areas, including Kumkalan, Talwandi, Laddowal, Malaud and villages situated on the banks of the Sutlej.

Under the prevailing circumstances, the ongoing campaigns of the state and Central government to promote school health programmes stand defeated.

A doctor working in the rural dispensary of Ludhiana district said, “There has been no initiative taken for fogging in the nearby schools and students with the symptoms of malaria and dengue are constantly coming to the doctors in dispensaries, health centres and also at private hospitals.”

However, Dr GP Mangla, district epidemiologist, when contacted stated that the health sanitation committees in the villages have been given Rs 10,000 each to go ahead with fogging and spraying in schools. “We will start a campaign for the city schools and I will accompany teams to create awareness about preventive measures,” said Dr Mangla.

Homoeopaths offer cure

Working on symptomatic treatment, homoeopaths after getting confirmed dengue patients put them on medication, including gelsemium, eupatorium, perf, crotalus and ceanothus that work to improve the immune system. The platelet count reaches 35-40,000 from 10,000 within 24-48 hours of the administration of the medication, claims Dr Robin Brar, a young homoeopath practicing in BRS Nagar. Similarly, Dr Muktinder Singh from Homoeocare said in the recent two cases, the platelet count of the patients had decreased to 10,000, which had come to normal in five days time.

Missing support, initiative

It has become difficult for the health department to carry out a campaign against malaria and dengue, as the municipal corporation, Ludhiana, had said a straight ‘no’ for providing “manpower”. The MC had provided a squad of 40 persons in 2009, which had enabled the health department to cover a large number of areas, including the city schools. Also, no initiative has been taken to rope in the NGOs, as had been advised by the deputy director of National Vector-Borne Disease Control Programme in her report after the major dengue epidemic in 2008.

Joga Singh, who fled from police custody while he was being taken to PGI, Chandigarh, for CT Scan on August 31, was nabbed following a car chase the jail officials said.

The accused was handed over to the PGI police post. Joga was booked for absconding from police custody and three jail policemen namely Kashmiri Lal, Rajiv Kumar and Avtar Singh, were reportedly suspended in this connection.

Sources in the education department said that the Jail Superintendent, Central Jail, Ludhiana, SP Khanna, had reportedly formed two teams to nab the accused.

The first team consisted of Mehal Lal Attri, Rajiv Kumar Dhir, Rashem Singh of Ludhiana and Sukhdev Singh of Ropar Jail. While in the second team three suspended policemen Kashmiri

Lala Rajiv and Avtar Singh laid a trap on the Noorpur Bedi- Anandpur National Highway.

It is learnt that the cops came to know about the whereabouts of Joga after they raided the residence of the accused. Joga was spotted near an eating joint on the highway. According to the jail police, the accused hired a taxi and told the driver to speed away from the scene after he saw the policemen. The police chased him for 15 km and then managed to nab the accused.

Joga, who hails from Nalagarh in Himachal Pradesh, was in the jail since May 9 on charges of vehicle theft and for his involvement in sale of stolen vehicles with fake registration numbers. A case against him was registered at the Focal Point police.

On August 25, Joga complained of severe chest pain, following which he was admitted in the jail hospital and further referred to PGI for treatment.



‘Encroachers’ just won’t budge

Ludhiana, September 4
It’s not even been a month since the septuagenarian French scholar painted his address on the wall outside his house near Model Town market to keep encroachers at bay, some unidentified men blackened the area where he had painted the address and tried to trespass into his property last night.

Their attempt, however, was unsuccessful as one of the neighbours Charanjit Singh raised the alarm.

Charanjit narrated the entire incident to Jathaul, who stays at Mani Majra, reached here this morning and met DCP Yurinder Singh. Jathaul even filed a complaint with the police for the protection of his property.

The repeated incidents of grabbing the multi-crore ancestral property belonging to Surinder Jathaul, 76, who retired as head of the French department at Panjab University, Chandigarh, highlights the plight of the common man, who is suffering at the hands of land mafia.

Ever since the land prices have shown an upward trend, Surinder is struggling to safeguard his ancestral property measuring 400 square yards.

This was not the first attempt, earlier, the miscreants had tried to take possession of the land by taking advantage of holidays.

Similarly, on August 15, another national holiday, the miscreants broke open the lock of Jathaul's house and put their own lock, claiming them to be the owners.

Subsequently, Jathaul arrived at the house and put a new lock. Jathaul even painted the walls of his house and stated that the property was not for sale.

Exasperated septuagenarian scholar said: "It’s a sin to have a house in the prime location. Every month some miscreants trouble me and they even tried to and threaten me."



Auction of Land for Chhapar Mela
Cops on toes to prevent clash
Our Correspondent

Mandi Ahmedgarh, September 4
The police was on toes to prevent any clash between two factions of the village panchayat at Chhappar village where the historic rural fair is scheduled after a fortnight.

Auction of the panchayat land for establishment of temporary vends during the fair has been reported to be reason behind the tension.

The civic body might face legal complications, too, as the same land has been auctioned twice to different bidders.

Interestingly, village sarpanch Gurmel Singh, who had won the election with the support of the SAD and has recently joined the Congress, chaired the auctioning committee in both the cases.

Investigation revealed that the right of auction of common land belonging to the Gram panchayat at Chhapar village had become bone of contention for factions of panches led by the SAD and the Congress.

Sources revealed that five out of nine office-bearers of the gram panchayat, led by sarpanch Gurmel Singh had announced to rent out the panchayat land to Baldev Singh of Barnala on September 1.

The bidder had reportedly deposited Rs 5.5 lakh with the auctioning committee on the spot.

Though the process of the auction had been completed peacefully, sarpanch Gurmel Singh got annoyed when the panches supporting him and other SAD leaders insisted that the amount should not be handed over to him and must be deposited in some private account.

The amount would be used for the development of the villages, suggested the panches.

Though the bidder was not issued any receipt for the payment, the amount received from him was reportedly deposited in account of one of the panches.

Feeling offended Gurmel announced to join the Congress the next day. He along with the support of other four panches declared the earlier auction null and void and announced to organise another auction at the mela site today.

Hardyal Singh, former sarpanch of the village, was rented out the same land for Rs 4.15.

Sensing threat to peace, DSP Jasdev Singh visited the mela site and deputed SHO Jodhan Inderjit Singh to keep a watch over the situation following dispute over genuineness of both the auctions.

Acknowledging tension over the issue, the SHO said both the warring groups had been asked to arrive at amicable solution.

“Though we will not intervene, we will not allow anyone to disrupt peace,” said the SHO.

Mahesh Sharma

Mandi Ahmedgarh, September 4
Row over control of the Truck Operator's Union at Jandali concluded with continuation of the chair by Himmat Singh Jandali who defeated his rival Balwinder Singh, from the USA, by 20 votes in the election held on Friday.

The issue had become a bone of contention between two factions of the SAD, as both were claiming support of Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, secretary general of the party.

Investigations revealed that Rajesh Nehra, executive magistrate, was deputed to hold the election to the post of president of the union through secret ballet. All 268 members cast their vote, with 145 voting in favour of Himmat Singh.

The investigations revealed that two factions of the SAD were at loggerheads over the control of the union.

Supporters of Himmat Singh Jandali, a confidant of Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, were on their heels to enable Jandali retain control of the organisation. On the other hand, supporters of Balwinder Singh, an NRI, had been impressing upon the administration to hold the election to the post through a secret ballot.

Sources in the party said Dhindsa, who did not want to offend any of the factions, had been trying to evade embarrassment by bridging the gap between them.

However, both groups remained adamant on the issue. It is learnt that Dhindsa had asked both the groups to test their strength in the election.

Ahmedgarh Market Committee chairman Amrik Singh Jandali is also supporting Balwinder Singh. The election to the president's post has remained a burning issue among activists and leaders of the party.

Our Correspondent

A woman of Himmat Nagar allegedly committed suicide under mysterious circumstances by hanging herself from a fan. According to sources, Chandni (22), wife of migrant labourer, was seen hanging by her family members.

Victim’s father said that she was often assaulted by her in-laws for dowry.

Their marriage was solemnized in 2006. In 2009 a quarrel had erupted in the family and a complaint was lodged with a women cell at Delhi by his family members.

Later, a mutual compromise was reached and her husband and other family members took her to Samrala with the promise that they would not beat her for dowry. Yesterday they beat her at their house and later she committed suicide, he added.
