Freedom has not ended their struggle

Ludhiana, August 16
Eighty-year-old Lakshmi's husband Gauri Shankar Chibba died fighting for freedom. Every year, she comes to the venue for the Independence Day function, meets politicians, airs her problems and returns disappointed.

Unable to climb the stairs, Lakshmi sat near the entrance to Guru Nanak Stadium and narrated her plight.

"My husband was jailed thrice in Ludhiana, Multan and Lahore. He laid down his life for the nation. His sacrifice went unrecognised. Every year, we are invited for the function and given a 'shawl'. Will this serve the purpose? The government had promised us a house and government job, but it seems that it has forgotten the same," she lamented.

Surinder Kaur, a daughter of a freedom fighter, said every year the government spent huge sums on state-level or district-level functions, but when it came to compensating the families of the freedom fighters, it chose to look the other way.

"Our struggle to make both ends meet continues," she stated.

"The authorities have dashed our hopes. They have failed to address our problems, they can't even imagine what we are going through. Only a hungry man would know what hunger means," she said.

The kin of the freedom fighters said the Deputy Commissioner was helpful but did not have the authority to allot them houses.

Ravinder Kapoor, general secretary, All-India Freedom Fighter Successors’ Organisation, Punjab, said Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had assured them of addressing their problems. “We are hopeful of meeting him soon," said Kapoor.

Rain plays havoc with plans

With rain playing a spoilsport, the venue for the Independence Day function had to be changed from SDC Government College to Guru Nanak Stadium.

It rained for seven hours and at the eleventh hour, the officials were seen making arrangements as the CM was to unfurl the National Flag.

As the function was to start at 9 am, all officials were busy making preparations. They had to redecorate the stage as water had accumulated in the lawns of SCD Government College.

Deputy Commissioner Rahul Tiwari said they had decided to change the venue during a meeting held with the officials at 5 am (on August 15).

Stress writ large on the faces of the officials as several VVIPs, including the Chief Minister, had reached the city on the evening of August 14.

The officials were on toes making arrangements for the stay of the VVIPs at different venues. Police personnel were deputed outside Guru Nanak Stadium.

A family member of a freedom fighter alleged that his mother was not allowed to enter the main gate and she was made to walk to the next gate due to security reasons.

“The authorities must make arrangements for the elderly. When they can send the cards, why can't they send the vehicles to pick us up," he said.

Though one of the stands of the stadium was empty, the authorities were able to mobilise people to attend the Independence Day function. Schoolchildren had turned up in large numbers and were seen enjoying the event.

Officials pacify kin

Officials of the district administration pacified the kin of the freedom fighters as they were about to hold a protest. Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, along with senior officials, went to the place where freedom fighters and their kin were sitting and honoured them with ‘shawls’. He assured them of convening a meeting in Chandigarh.


Does Kala Kachha gang really exist?

Ludhiana, August 16
The registration of two cases against an African national and eight basketball players of a private university has yet again proved that how the police is giving credence to the rumour of African and Kala Kachha gang. The African national has been identified as Ronald O'Malley, a resident of Nairobi Kenya.

The police booked the African national after he failed to show his passport during investigations.

He was presented in a local court which sent him to judicial remand. Ronald O'Malley had reportedly told the police that he had lost his passport and had reported the matter to the police. He had even showed a copy of the Daily Dairy Report (DDR).

Sumit Sood, SHO, Division No. 7, said Ronald O'Malley was selling watches in the Tajpur road area.

He said Ronald was picked up by police on suspicion. During investigations, it was found that the accused had lost his passport in March.

"But he has not applied for a new passport. We have brought the matter to the notice of the high commission, said the SHO.

Ronald O'Malley was staying in a hotel located near Clock Tower.

O'Malley had also submitted the copy of the DDR to the hotel owner, claiming that as soon as he would get his passport he would submit a copy.

Sources said Ronald O'Malley was booked under public pressure. He was reportedly surrounded by residents on the Tajpur road, who mistook him for a member of African gang.

Ronald O'Malley was also manhandled but the police reached the spot on time and saved the situation from turning ugly. Ronald O'Malley was booked as the police did not want the residents to hold a protest.

Similarly, eight members of a basketball team were booked for hooliganism near Manji Sahib Gurdwara. The basketball players were going to an archaeological site near the gurdwara.

They were wearing black shorts and were in an SUV.

On seeing them, residents informed the police and a case was registered against Chicha of Amritsar, Navjot Singh of Hoshiarpur, Arun and Varun Sharma of Jammu, Akshay Tikkar of New Delhi, Jaspreet Singh of Jharkhand, Bhawani Singh Shekhawat of Rajasthan and Sandeep of Fazilka.

Social activist Mohinder Singh Sekhon said while senior officers were denying the existence of the gang and terming it to be a ghost created through a mobile messaging application, but the lower rung police officers were going ahead and registering the cases.

There's yet more for Ludhiana to cheer, if we go by the promises of the minister, who's also the Congress Member Parliament (MP) from Ludhiana. He has promised to convert the existing Passport Sewa Kendra into a full-fledged Regional Passport Office so that the applicants need not go to Chandigarh or Jalandhar. Promising to start a new Shatabdi train from Ludhiana to New Delhi via Ambala.

He stated that he had some party-related issues that remained unresolved and that the MP (Tewari) had made no efforts to solve those. 

Tewari gets 100.1

Prasar Bharti officials and Fatehgarh Sahib MP Sukhdev Singh Libra gave the entire credit of starting FM Gold Radio from Ludhiana to Manish Tewari. Prasar Bharti CEO Jawahar Sirckar said, “He (Tewari) asked me how long it took to start an FM radio. My reply was 7-10 years, given the procedural issues and technical formalities. However, the minister said, "We will have to reduce the time span to four months and to make it happen we will not let the pressure slacken till the job is done.” “In exams, a topper gets 100 per cent. But the minister has got 100.1 (the frequency on which FM Gold can be heard is 100.1 megahertz),” added the CEO of Prasar Bharti.
