Bathinda, Punjab (September 1, 2014): Admitting that the corruption is at the peak in Punjab government offices, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Friday asked government officers to disclose their share in government projects.

While redressing grievance of a farmer during a sangat darshan (public contact) programme at Gurusar village in Talwandi Sabo assembly constituency, he also asked officials how they divided the commission.

The video of the entire episode has hit social sites for a couple of days.

In his report published in Hindustan Times, senior HT reporter and president Bathinda press club Kamaldeep Singh Brar quoted CM, “I know everything. I am not going to pull you up over this but at least tell me how much you make,”.

It left the gathering in splits and the officials uncomfortable, said the report.

The villagers have alleged delay in the laying of underground pipelines. “Je ehna da kam hou tan thanu vi char paise bachange (Only if you do their work will you get your margin),” said the CM, looking at divisional soil conservation officer Kulbir Singh.

The official attempted to change the topic but the CM was keen to know the breakdown. “What is the share of the chief engineer and executive engineer? Pata mainu saara hai, main tan bas puchh reha (I know everything but I ask you),” he said.

The gathering was all ears to this conversation on microphone. It is not the first time when the CM has acknowledged the corruption in government offices. He has told farmers at rallies that he pays for the electricity they steal to run their tube-wells.

New Delhi, India (September 01, 2014): Narendra Modi led Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) seems eager to give Hindutva color of India at the earliest possible. Government seems more engaged in bringing in tools of Hindutva promotion into usage in government working.

Guru Utsav draws criticism

After high uproar over usage of Hindi on social media platform, then celebration of Sanskrit week in schools, now Narendra Modi Government’s new move to change teachers day as ‘Guru Utsav’ is snowballing into major controversy.

It is learnt that Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Sunita Irani, had recently issued a directive to all the schools of the country, ordering them to make proper arrangements so that students could hear out Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of ‘Guru Utsav’.

As per media report, after getting signal from Ministry, the Directorate of Education (DoE) of Delhi government issued a notification to all schools, ordering them to make arrangements for a broadcast of the Prime Minister’s address on September 5. The DoF also directed schools to facilitate a Question and Answer session with schoolchildren through various medium like television or through Internet connections.

It’s Aryans’ plot to destroy Tamil Language and Culture: Karunanidhi

Hitting at Narendra Modi led BJP government, DMK Chief Karunanidhi has said that the Aryans are plotting to destroy Tamil language and culture.

“For years we’ve celebrated it as Teacher’s Day. The Centre has now changed it to ‘Guru Utsav’ through a government order. This is how they first lay their hands on our language. After defeating it they plot little by little to defeat those belonging to the language, those who reached great heights through language and those who hurt themselves for the language. We do not need any other example for this”, NDTV has quoted Karunanidhi as saying.

Modi Government draws criticism from all corners:

Narendra Modi’s move has drawn criticism from all corners.

“It shows the dictatorial mindset and attitude. We have no objections to students listening to speeches of the President, the prime minister and the chief minister. But the way it is being forced is surprising”, Manikrao Thakare, Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee President said.

Another Congress leader Manish Tewari said, “The government is inconveniencing teachers, students and parents. The PM should re-schedule his speech.”

Similarly, TMC leader Mamata Banerjee has also raised objection over the issue.

Guru Utsav has nothing to do with renaming ‘Teachers Day’: Smriti Irani

HRD minsiter Smriti Irani has come up in defence to her plans regarding the Guru Utsav, saying it has nothing to do with the Teachers’ Day. She said that it was a special essay competition being organized for students both past and present and will highlight the contribution of teachers in their lives.

Ludhiana, Punjab (September 1, 2014): Opposing the SYL canal project, Social activist Medha Patkar, on August 31st, said the interlinking of rivers was no solution to the water crisis being faced by several states.

She said she was against the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) Canal, a disputed project involving Punjab and Haryana.

The long pending issue of interlinking of rivers of various states, also pending in Supreme Court of India (SCI), is not only opposed by people of Punjab in the light of Satluj-Yamuna Link project, but many other states are being victimized on the name of inter-linking.

Being it on the agenda on the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) government, the social activists and states like Punjab were fearing forcible interlinking.

The BJP, many a time, has claimed of solving water crisis in many states by interlinking the rivers.

Medha Patkar was at Ludhiana on August 31st to meet the local activists of various NGOs under a programme, “National Alliance of People’s Movements”.

She said the linking of rivers was “no mean project as it would severely affect human lives, the ecology and environment”. “It will prove very costly”, she added.

“The BJP, Modi government and other politicians have been misleading the public on the linkage of rivers,” she said.
