Bassi Pathana, January 10
The police, in collaboration with the Truck Union and Bharat Vikas Parishad, organised a seminar to spread awareness among drivers about the traffic rules here today. DSP SP Singh was the chief guest, while Raj Kumar Wadhwa, president, Bharat Vikas Parishad, presided over the seminar.

A large number of drivers from truck union, tempo union, auto-rickshaw union and prominent citizens attended the seminar.

The DSP said deaths due to accidents were on the rise, so the need of the hour was to control accidents. He said the law forcing agencies couldn’t control the traffic by enforcing the law, rather everyone had to take the responsibility to obey traffic rules, and only then the road accidents could be controlled. He said it was unfortunate that our drivers drive negligently here in India, where as they drive carefully while in abroad.

He appreciated the efforts of the Bharat Vikas Parishad and truck union in organising such a seminar.

Kalka, January 10
Union minister for housing and urban poverty alleviation and tourism Kumari Selja has written to union minister for human resource development and telecommunication Kapil Sibal seeking the construction of a building to house post office and telephone exchange at Pinjore.

Sources said in the letter, the minister has said the town is a historic place and is in a dire need of a permanent building for the post office and a 3G telephone exchange.

The letter adds that there is adequate space for the construction of the building on the premises of the local police station.

The residents have to face inconvenience due to the absence of a telephone exchange.

The post office was shifted to another building 40 years ago after the old building was declared unsafe.

The Shiwalik Vikas Manch had recently written to Kumari Selja regarding the construction of a post office and 3G telephone exchange in the town.
