Ambala, September 15
The police arrested 17 persons from a gurdwara located on the Ambala-Jagadhri road for planning to take part in a takeover bid of gurdwaras in Haryana. According to sources, as Jagdish Singh Jhinda, a leader of the Haryana SGPC (Ad-hoc), had set the deadline of September 15 to take over control of gurdwaras in the state, the district administration had imposed Section 144, CrPC, to avoid any untoward incident.

When some persons belonging to the Jhinda group gathered at Dosarka Gurdwara, which is the head office of the Haryana SGPC, to take part in the bid, the police arrested 16 persons near the gurdwara.

Ambala SP Shashank Anand confirmed that 17 persons were arrested, 16 from Dosarka and one from Ambala City, and booked under relevant sections at the Mulana police station.

According to the sources, Jhinda, who heads an ad hoc Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee in Haryana, and two others were arrested by the police in Kurukshetra as a preventive measure in the morning.

The SP added that foolproof security arrangements had been made in all parts of Ambala and no untoward incident was reported here today. The police was deployed outside major gurdwaras in the district, he added.

The Sikh leadership in the state has accused the SGPC of neglecting state’s gurdwaras and the Sikhs, despite these shrines contributing a revenue of Rs 10 crore to the SGPC annually. However, the SGPC has refuted all claims of Jhinda and his supporters.

SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar said: “They are not allowed to take law into their hands. We are serving Haryana gurdwaras with full dedication and will not allow anyone to interfere in our matters.”

Those arrested are: Jasbir Singh, Joginder Singh, Sharan Singh, Gurdeep Singh ,Avtar Singh, Hakam Singh, Amar Singh, Sukhminder Singh, Kiranjit Singh, Niranjan Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Baldev Singh, Mandeep Singh, Amrinder Singh, Sukhchain Singh and Parminder Singh.

They were later produced before the SDM, Barara, who released them on bail, the sources added.

Kalka: The local police on Tuesday night arrested four members of the local unit of the Haryana SGPC (Ad-hoc). Police sources said SS Nanda, Sharanjit Grover, Kulwinder Shunti and Harbhajan Singh were arrested under Sections 107 and 51 of the CrPC.

Pinjore-Kalka Highway
Traffic chaos continues to hound motorists
Hemant Kumar

Kalka, September 15
Hundreds of tourists and commuters have to face inconvenience on a daily basis following traffic disruptions on the National Highway-22 here. Traffic chaos on the Chandigarh- Shimla highway, which passes through Kalka and Pinjore has become a norm here.

Long queues can be witnessed at the Kalka-Pinjore railway crossing, with problem worsening in the evening hours.

Residents say the toll centre at the Kalka-Parwanoo barrier remains clogged, with vehicles queuing up right up to the Gandhi Chowk.

And with apple season on, trucks laden with the produce remain lined up along the stretch causing further chaos.

While the construction of the Pinjore-Kalka-Parwanoo bypass is expected to ease traffic congestion, the work is expected to be delayed by another six months due construction of two flyovers — one opposite the HMT factory gate and second near the Burajkotian link road. Consequently, no respite is in sight for now, as commuters continue to grapple with traffic disruptions on the stretch.

According to a government survey, over 30,000 vehicles pass through the area using the national highway every day.

With rain battering the region, the condition of the highway has deteriorated further, restricting the free movement of traffic. This has even resulted in some serious accidents.

Stretches from Gandhi Chowk to Kalka-Parwanoo barrier, and old bus stand to railway over bridge, besides main bazaars of Kalka and Pinjore, are in dire need of repairs.

Other stretches that need attention include link roads from Gandhi Chowk to Tipra via Khatik Mohalla and link road from Kalka to Khera Sita Ram.

Residents have urged the state government to augment the construction work on the bypass.

They have also urged the Kalka police to deploy adequate force at Gandhi Chowk to regulate traffic.

Chhat (Banur), September 15
The spur that had been damaged by the gushing water of the Ghaggar near the lion safari at the Chhat Bir zoo was repaired today. Mohali deputy commissioner Parveen Kumar had visited the zoo yesterday along with Dera Bassi SDM and other officials to look into the matter.

He had instructed the staff to repair the spur immediately so that water could not enter the lion safari.

The zoo officials had brought the matter to the notice of the official numerous times but had failed to elicit any response from him.

However, the administration swung into action only after the reports of threat to the safari figured in the media.

The zoo officials had expressed concern over the delay in repair of spur and had informed the administration to look into the matter.

Spur between the Ghaggar and the boundary wall of the zoo had been damaged following heavy flow in the river last week. Even sand bags had been washed away following incessant rain.

The Army was to be roped in for the repair, which was expected to cost around Rs 2 lakh, but it did not respond despite requests.

Tribune News Service

Fatehgarh Sahib, September 15
The Government-aided Teachers’ Union of Punjab has decided to launch an agitation against the non-payment of salaries and delay in the implementation of the fifth pay commission. In a press statement issued here today, association district president Ravinder Joshi said the decision of launching the agitation was taken during a state-level executive meeting.

A protest march would be taken out on the National Highway-21 in Kharar and MLAs would be gheroed by the teachers. Joshi said despite repeated requests and representations, the government was not listening to the problems of the teacher community.

The district president added that the government-aided schools are in a deplorable condition due to the lack of interest of politicians and policy makers to improve the condition of the schools.

Nakesh Jindal, president of Lal Lajpat Rai Senior Secondary School, Bassi Pathana, said the teachers would fight for their rights until their demands were not met. The sorry state of affairs could be gauged from the fact that the minister have got their salaries increased manifolds, but the teachers are still unable to get their pending hard earned money.

He pointed out that the situation of the retired teachers is also poor who find it hard to make both ends meet. Earlier also, the teachers have to resort to agitations to get their pending salaries and other demands fulfilled, he said.

Mohali, September 15
Extended monsoon has become a cause of worry for the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) officials ahead of the first Test of Indo-Aussie series scheduled for October 1. Talking to TNS, PCA curator Daljit Singh said incessant rain in the city was not good for the pitch. “Time is less and the moisture level inside the pitch is high,” said Daljit Singh.

“An area of about 65,000 sq feet of outfield is de-weeded and re-grassed,” said Daljit Singh. He added that the stadium would offer top-most facilities during the forthcoming World Cup matches here.
