Power woes only worsen
Scorching heat, erratic power supply sapping city residents
Kuldip Bhatia

Ludhiana, May 29
There seems to be no respite for city residents from unscheduled cuts ever since a massive fire damaged transmission equipment at the 220-kv Lalton Kalan substation. Scorching heat and soaring mercury in the region, coupled with scarcity of water caused by erratic power supply, is making life difficult for people who have to sweat it out during the day and also spend sleepless nights.

While power shutdown at regular intervals has adversely affected the quality of life in most of the well-developed residential localities, people in the old city area are grappling with scarcity of water due to power cuts and outage which Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) is imposing on domestic feeders due to power shortage created by the two 100 MVA transformers at Lalton going non-operational and another transformer of the same capacity installed at Ferozepur Road substation still to become functional.

The PSPCL chief engineer of central zone, KL Sharma, said a reconstructed transformer at Lalton Kalan had become functional late last night and full load of Gill Road feeders was shifted back to the substation. Similarly, some load of the industrial units from Giaspura for domestic supply had also been restored. "As of now, there are no restrictions on power supply to the industrial sector while some load shedding is being done on domestic feeders due to the prevailing gap between the total demand and availability of power," he said.

Another 100 MVA transformer installed at the 220 kv substation (Ferozepur Road), which had developed initial hiccups, was also expected to become operational sometime this evening. Power supply would not only be completely restored, but also some cushioning capacity would be available with the PSPCL, he claimed.

However, as things stand right now, the extremely hot weather condition, and the resultant spurt in the demand for electricity, has further compromised the precarious power situation. In many city localities, power supply was provided for a brief duration of half-hour and even 15 minutes before a shutdown for half-hour or an hour in the evening on Monday, with the same schedule continuing till this afternoon.

Residents of Amarpura, Harcharan Nagar, Field Ganj and Kidwai Nagar complained that most of these localities were already getting deficient water supply and now the power shutdowns and cuts during the day had worsened the situation.

Ludhiana, May 29
Colleges affiliated with Panjab University (PU) will pay a heavy price if they fail to comply with the norms set by the national regulatory bodies. The university will be acting tough against such colleges from the new academic session 2012-13.

The conditions have been laid down by regulatory bodies, including the National Council of Technical Education (NCTE) and the University Grants Commission (UGC).

A deadline for June 30 has been set by the university for all colleges to fulfill all the necessary conditions, failing which they will not be allowed to admit batches from the new session.

Non-compliance of NCTE and UGC norms in certain BEd colleges has been pointed out in the past. The university has asked these colleges to submit fee and get the affiliations renewed. The step has been taken by the university to check the "casual" and "non-serious" attitude of some colleges towards inspections.



Women taking to tobacco products in a big way

Ludhiana, May 29
Women are breaking another male bastion, tobacco. The young brigade of women is increasingly being drawn to tobacco-flavoured products.

The city has been witnessing a rise in women smokers of all age groups over the last four-five years. Dr Aashish Chawla, in charge of the tuberculosis department at Lord Mahavir Civil Hospital, Ludhiana, said: "Earlier, we used to come across one or two women suffering from obstructive pulmonary disease in a year due to smoking. But now we receive one to two women patients every month. These people are from the poor strata of society and a majority of them are migrants."

Not only migrants, but also the younger generation of the city is falling an easy prey to tobacco products. Chewable tobacco products are also being used by some women. Nageena (name changed) said: "I started chewing a tobacco product hoping to deal with stress during work. But with the passage of time, my teeth got discoloured and I became addicted to it. Now, I eat a pouch of it every day."

Thirtyfive-year-old Sunanda (name changed) said: "The fragrance of these products made me fall for them. Earlier, my husband used to chew it, but now even I cannot do without it."

The District Health Officer, Dr Kulwinder Singh, said: "During the recent raids conducted by the health department on hookah bars, we caught many youngsters enjoying flavoured hookah and some of these were young girls."

Dr Raman Arora, an oncologist, said: "In our hospital, we receive a mixed group of women patients who smoke and hail from different strata of society." Dr Vikas Loomba, a consultant physician in the CMCH, said: "A few women patients who smoke and suffer from obstructive pulmonary disease visit the OPD often. Smoking may lead to paralytic stroke, heart attack and cancer."

Now, helpline to keep the city speckless

Ludhiana, May 29
Now there is a dedicated helpline for the city residents to register complaints regarding garbage lifting and other related issues. A2Z Waste Management Ludhiana Ltd, involved in garbage collection, has now started a toll-free helpline number, 1800-120-0117, for the residents.

People can register their grievances regarding lifting of garbage from their area to garbage falling from trucks and even rash driving by drivers of garbage trucks.

A2Z Waste Management Ludhiana Ltd had started its operations in Ward Nos 56 and 57 from August 15 last year.

Ever since its operations, the company was facing tough resistance from the private garbage collectors-most of them belonging to the Valmiki community. That is why the company was collecting garbage under police protection.

Later, the safai karamcharis across the state had gone on strike from October 4 to 9, last year. However, after an assurance from the Chief Minister the strike ended.

Ever since then the A2Z Waste Management Ludhiana Ltd has been operating from all wards of the city. They are lifting garbage from the garbage collection points in the city, while private garbage collectors are involved in door to door service.

Manoj Mishra, Deputy General Manager, A2Z Waste Management Ludhiana Ltd, said the helpline number has started from today onwards.

“If any person is having any complaint regarding non-lifting of garbage from the collection points or from our garbage bins placed in different parts of the city, he can register his complaint at our helpline number. If any of our company trucks is found scattering garbage on the road or if the truck driver is not driving properly and indulging in rash driving, residents can complaints that too. I assure the residents that we would redress the problem at the earliest,” said Manoj Mishra.

Toll-free number

Residents can dial toll-free helpline number 1800-120-0117 to register their grievances regarding the non-lifting of garbage in their area. They can also complain about garbage falling from trucks and even rash driving by drivers of such trucks.

Ludhiana, May 29
Cleanliness is a big issue in the ward. Only a few areas, including New Model Town, are cleaned on a regular basis, while others such as Jawahar Nagar and Labour Colony present an ugly picture.

The public convenience facilities in Jawahar Nagar, a busy marketplace, are in a loathsome condition. Water supply is erratic. Sweepers do not turn up for days in many parts of the ward, say residents.

Heaps of garbage dot Middha Chowk. Stink emanating from the litter bugs residents.


Major areas:

New Model Town, Jawahar Nagar, Lajpat Nagar, Gurcharan Park, Labour Colony and Gandhi Colony.

Voters: 13,000

Population: 20,000


I have completed most of the work in the ward. An amount of Rs 5 crore has been spent on various development projects, including renovation of parks and carpeting of roads. Inter-locking tiles have been laid in Jawahar Nagar. Three tubewells have also been installed. Roads have been constructed wall-to-wall in order to prevent encroachments. An amount of Rs 19 lakh has been given to government schools. I won the elections as an Independent last time. If re-elected, I will get a dispensary constructed in the ward

— Kapil Kumar Sonu, councillor

ReSIDENTS speaks

Water supply is erratic. Sanitation workers show up at whims. They have started charging Rs 20 instead of Rs 15 per home for garbage collection. The MC should make the payment to these workers, why should the residents pay

— Chandar Shekhar, a resident

The councillor works hard to solve the problems. Although there are no major problems in New Model Town, I think parks in the area need to be spruced up

Major issues

Residents complain of waterlogging in the area. They say water enters their houses during rainy season.

Sewerage remains choked most of the time. Nothing has been done to solve the problem so far despite residents raising the issue a number of times.

Residents say rodents have become a nuisance in some parts of the ward.

Loose electricity wires are a threat to residents' lives.

There are a number of accident-prone areas in the ward.

— Prem Mittal, councillor

reSIDENTS speakds

Prem Mittal is a good councillor. Even though he has become an MLA, he has deputed people in his office, to address the problems of residents. Speed breakers should be installed as the lanes are narrow and small squares are prone to accidents. Loose electricity wires are a threat. Parks in the area need to be maintained.

— Aman Sharma, a resident

Muddy water is supplied to the area. Quality of water should be improved. Apart from this, there is no other problem in the ward. The councillor has put in efforts to develop the area. There should be more green belts here. Plantation drives should be carried out frequently.

BJP changes candidate from Ward No. 52

Ludhiana, May 29
In a recent development, the Bharatiya Janta Party has changed its official candidate from Ward No. 52 on the last date of filing nomination papers for the municipal corporation elections scheduled for June 10. In place of Rajiv Nanchahal, the party has now allotted ticket to Sandeep Kapoor.

Rajiv Nanchahal was announced as the party candidate on the first list announced on May 23.

Sources within the BJP said the party wanted to “adjust” Sandeep Kapoor by allotting him ticket for the municipal corporation elections, scheduled for June 10.

Ward No. 52 consists of areas such as Mall Road, Civil Lines, College Road, besides other adjoining areas.

“Earlier, the party had decided to adjust him in Ward No. 54. But after Amita Rai (Pinky), daughter-in-law of former MP Lala Lajpat Rai, was allotted ticket from that particular ward, it was decided to adjust Kapoor from some other ward. Senior BJP leaders also thought that Sandeep Kapoor would be a better and stronger candidate,” said a senior BJP leader.

On the third BJP list, Rajesh Kashyap has been announced as party candidate from Ward No. 53.



Bains brothers, Gabria in thaw mode

Ludhiana, May 29
Two days after the “patch-up” between Bains brothers and former minister Hira Singh Gabria, the Akali leaders got an interesting sight during the filing of nomination papers at the office of Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) today when Bains brothers and Hira Singh Gabria were seen greeting each other.

Not only this, they even posed for lensmen present on the spot.

Hira Singh Gabria, who was accompanied by his son Rakhwinder Singh and other supporters, had come to file Rakhwinder’s nomination papers at GLADA's office, while Simarjit Singh Bains and Balwinder Singh Bains had come with their supporters, who were to file their papers as well. SAD candidate Rakhwinder is contesting elections from Ward No. 61.

Interestingly, when Bains brothers and their supporters were still inside GLADA's office, Hira Singh Gabria and Rakhwinder reached there. Some other party leaders, including Mahesh Inder Singh Grewal, Manpreet Singh Ayali and others too were present there.

As Gabria and Bains brothers have been at loggerheads for a long time and have gone vocal against each other publicly on several occasions, the senior party leaders present in GLADA's office sensed that their presence might lead to some awkward moments for them as well as for both the leaders. That is why, the senior leaders urged Simarjit and Balwinder to wish Rakhwinder good luck, after which Simarjit hugged Rakhwinder.

Two days ago, the party high command had issued directions to Bains brothers and Hira Singh Gabria asking them to work together for the MC elections, so that all their candidates registered victories from their respective wards.

During the last MC elections held in 2007, Simarjit had fielded close to six candidates as Independents against the SAD (B) candidates chosen by Hira Singh Gabria. After most of these Independent candidates won, they joined the Akali Dal. But during the recently held Vidhan Sabha elections, Simarjit had contested as an Independent and had defeated Gabria from the Atam Nagar constituency by a margin of over 28,000 votes.

Later, Simarjit and his elder brother Balwinder Singh Bains returned to the party fold. Even during the distribution of tickets for the upcoming MC elections, Bains brothers managed to secure around 12 seats out of total 38 for their supporters.



No stopping stubble burning

Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, May 29
Not paying heed to the ban orders issued by the district administration, farmers continue to burn stubble.

The burning of stubble not only generates more heat, but can also result in a fire.

It was found that burning of straw went unnoticed on the outskirts of the city. The practice continues unabated at villages, including Hussainpura, Gopalpur, Lehra, Dehlon, Lalton, Baruddi and Hambran.

Dr Amandeep Singh Bains from RBS Roots, an NGO working to protect environment, said farmers were reluctant to leave the practice. He said the reality was that they themselves were the worst affected due to burning of straw in fields.

"The fertility of soil gets badly affected. A majority of cases of asthma and other respiratory diseases were being reported from hospitals," said Dr Bains.

Surdul Singh, a farmer from Dehlon, said they were left with no other option but to burn stubble.

"We do agree that it is dangerous to burn the straw like this as in the past, many fire incidents have taken place due to the practice.

The government should provide some other option as for the next crop, we have to clear our fields," said the farmer. 



Brother, sister feud turns ugly
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, May 29
The police has not registered any case in the incident where a man allegedly threw his sister into a fire at Nurpur Bet on May 26. Preliminary investigations made by the police reveal since it was a case of land dispute, the victim, Nacchattar Kaur, had levelled "baseless" allegations against her brother Nacchattar Singh Sandhu.

SHO Ladowal Gurpreet Singh said the police had recorded statements of both the parties. "It is a land dispute case. The land belonged to Nacchattar Singh and his sons and his sister wanted a share. But we have checked the documents, the plot is in his name and that of his sons.

On May 20, he had got a case registered against his sister and her sons as they were not letting them sell the property and we had arrested two sons of Nacchattar Kaur, who were later released on bail.

We are further investigating the matter," the SHO said.

Sandhu said the police did not register a case against him as he was not even present on the spot when his sister alleged that he had pushed her into fire.

Arvinder, Nachhattar Kaur's son, however, alleged that the police was shielding his uncle.

The police maintained that it had not got any copy of the MLR from the Civil Hospital even after two days of the incident, so a case could not be registered.

Ludhiana, May 29
Local lad Rahul Kumar has established himself in the field of powerlifting and has won medals in the powerlifting competitions during the last couple of years.

In the recently held national powerlifting championship in Ludhiana, Rahul gave a stupendous performance, clinching a gold medal in the 60kg category.

Practising under the watchful eyes of three gold medals winner in weightlifting during the Commononwealth Games at Auckland (Newzealand), Parvesh Chander Sharma from Ludhiana and strong man of India for three consecutive years, Parveen Sharma of Raikot, has been aspiring to don the national colours and bring laurels to the nation at international-level competitions.
