Link roads in poor shape
Our Correspondent

Dera Bassi, May 2
The poor condition of link roads in Dera Bassi and Lalru areas has been a reason of so many accidents. The residents expressed that they had been facing a tough time due to the deep potholes on these link roads. They further said that these roads had not been repaired for the many years now, which was the root cause of their poor condition. Ironically, during the wheat harvesting season, it becomes difficult for the farmers drive their trolleys across these roads. Residents said that they had complained this matter to concerned authorities so many times, but nothing had been done so far.

Manpreet Kaur, Congress leader also expressed that condition of the roads had gone from bad to worse as the roads had not been repaired since long time. She demanded that the road should be repaired sooner than later, so that people could easily cross these roads. The roads which have been effected badly include, Lalru to Aganpur Bhagwasi, Lalru to Dharmgarh, Lalru to Magra, Malkpur to jolly, Dera Bassi to Bohra and Bakarpur, Dera Bassi to Samgouli and Bhagsi, Dera Bassi to Amlala, Dappar to Aganpur, Dera Bassi to Mianpur and a few other roads.

When asked about this to Kuljeet Singh Randhawa, state president of Punjab panchyat parisad, he criticised the state government for not attending the area properly. Congress leader Krishan Gupta also said that despite being a healthy industrial area, poor condition and infrastructure disappointed industrialists and now they do not prefer setting up industries here. Meanwhile SDO Mandi Board, Nirmal Singh said that a proposal for repairing link roads had been sent to state government and after receiving approval and getting funds these roads would be repaired.



Ropar IIT unveils technology to produce bio-fuel from farm residue
Tribune News Service

Ropar, May 2
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Ropar, in association with Aston University, Birmingham, UK, unveiled a technology to produce bio-fuel and bio char using agricultural residue, especially paddy straw, here today. Explaining the benefits of the technology, Professor Robert Berry, executive dean of Aston University, said it would help in protecting environment as well as increasing monetary benefits for farmers.

“The technology is being introduced in decentralised form for the first time in India, while it was being used in anaerobic digestion to treat sewage sludge in the UK,” said Robert.

The technology has already been successfully tested on the IIT campus. Now, a unit of prototype of the project will be taken to the fields of Laadal, Khwaspura and Hussainpur villages of Ropar next month so that the farmers get a first-hand experience of it.

Informing about the technology, Berry said European Bioenergy Research Institute of Aston varisty’s patented technology - a Pyroformer - takes waste products and residues such as husk and straw and converts them into controlled conditions. The process generates, oils, gas and bio char.

The straw or husk is pyrolysed in the reactor at around 375 degrees Celsius. Through pyrolysis, solid residue that is called bio char, gas and a vapour product is obtained.

The vapour product is brought in contact with bio diesel or diesel in a quenching unit where bio diesel is used as a medium to condense the vapour. The vapour after condensation becomes bio oil. It is then collected in small cans.

While bio oil and gas can be used to run pump sets or engines at farms, bio char can be used for co-combustion in thermal power plants or as fertiliser.

“While one such unit will cost nearly Rs 30 lakh, the farmers can recover the cost within five years as one quintal of straw will produce 33 per cent of each of bio oil, gas and bio char,” said project in charge Sudhakar Sagi, from Aston University.


Pharmacists want services regularised, to hold state-level protests
Tribune News Service

Patiala, May 2
Expressing resentment over the non-regularisation of the services of pharmacists and the class IV employees, the Rural Health Pharmacists Action Committee has decided to hold state-level protests in the coming days. These employees have been working as contractual employees for the last many years and despite repeated assurances of regularising their services, the Punjab Government extended their contract last year but only for one year, which ends on May 31, 2013.

While providing further information in this regard, Ram Singh, convener of the committee, alleged that despite years of service, the pharmacists were getting merely Rs 7,000 per month. Whereas, as per the policy, their pay grade should be Rs 10,300-34,800-4200, which means that their initial salary should be Rs 16,290. Ironically, till date the government has not done anything about it. Similar was the case with class IV employees, who were paid Rs 3,000 instead of at least Rs 10,000.

"Two years back the government brought us under the zila parishad and since then it has been just extending our contract. Now that two years are about to get over, they are still not talking about our regularisation," he informed.

Meanwhile, no action has been taken yet, over the issue of expulsion of unqualified pharmacists. It is worth mentioning that the Punjab Government had issued a letter on January 28, 2010, stating that all dispensaries must appoint qualified pharmacists, as per the Pharmacy Act 1948, the upkeep and distribution of the medicines must be done by qualified registered pharmacists

"These unqualified workers do not possess proper knowledge of medicines and which can actually prove fatal for the people. The government has been extending their contract as well," added Ram Singh.

P'kula property case
File containing attachment order lost, official tells court
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, May 2
In the dock for allegedly being involved in the sale of a property that had been attached by a court in 1990 in a disproportionate assets case, Estate Officer of HUDA Ashwini Kumar today informed the court that the file containing the attachment order for the said property had been lost somewhere and he had also got a police report lodged with the police station in Sector 5, Panchkula, in this regard.

The case has been adjourned to May 21. The Estate Officer appeared before the CBI court of Special Judge Vimal Kumar.

According to the case registered in 1990, the CBI had booked Col BS Goraya (now retired) in a case of disproportionate assets. The value of his property was not proportionate to his income. He had several properties in his as well as his family members' name in Panchkula and Gurgaon, which led to the registration of the case against him.

The court had attached two of Colonel Goraya's properties. One of these, plot No. 323 in Sector 2, Panchkula, has been registered in the name of Goraya's daughter Jaswinder Mann.

Through two orders, dated July 5, 1997, and September 9, 1995, the CBI special court had attached the two properties. Colonel Goraya, however, had submitted an application on March 26 this year, seeking verification regarding the sale of the Sector 2 plot.

According to the application of the CBI, the Colonel's sister, Jaswinder Mann, allegedly in connivance with HUDA Estate Officer Ashwini Kumar sold the property to Pawan Gulati.

After the CBI noticed the discrepancy, it moved an application in the court and a show-cause notice was served on the official concerned earlier this month, following which the Estate Officer appeared before the court today.

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, May 2
The Punjab and Haryana High Court was today told that the recognition granted to Sacred Heart School-26 would be subject to the outcome of a petition filed in public interest in the Ruchika molestation matter.

Action against the school for expelling Ruchika Girhotra, allegedly at the behest of Haryana former top police official SPS Rathore, has been sought in the PIL filed by advocate Ranjan Lakhanpal.

The High Court was told that a notice to this effect had been sent by the Director Public Instruction (DPI) in February to the school. The DPI has indicated that the "recognition" of the school will be "subject to the outcome of the petition" pending in the court.

As the case came up for hearing this morning, the school produced a copy of the notice. In its application, the school submitted: "How the same has happened is beyond our knowledge as the pendency of the petition should, in no way, interfere with the recognition granted to the school by the Education Department of the Chandigarh Administration, but it has for reasons best known to them played on their mind".

The application further adds: "The fate of 3,000 students has been put to jeopardy. The school is functioning properly since its inception in 1968 and excelling year after year in its performance in all areas of student development. There are around 3,000 children studying in the school, of whom 600 belong to economically weaker sections (which is not required under any law but the same is done under our own initiative)".

The case will now come up for further hearing to May 8.

The High Court had earlier given the Administration time to inform the Bench about the action that was taken after an inquiry report was submitted in the molestation case. The report had indicted Sacred Heart School for expelling Ruchika.

The Chandigarh Administration, on a previous hearing, had produced a photocopy of the report prepared more than two years ago on Ruchika's expulsion from Sacred Heart School.
