Warring’s affinity with Bathinda

Warring’s affinity with Bathinda

Bathinda: Gidderbaha MLA Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, who gave a tough fight to Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal in the recent Lok Sabha elections at the high-profile Bathinda seat, is all set to resume his thanksgiving tour in the constituency. Warring had embarked on the tour immediately after the poll result on May 23, but he could not cover the entire constituency at that time. The Congress legislator recently went on live on the Facebook and announced that he was back after the summer break and would soon venture out in the remaining areas of the constituency. He even visited the city on Sunday and met the family of former district Congress chief Inder Singh Sahni, who recently passed away, offering his condolences to the grief-stricken family. It seems Warring is already preparing ground for contesting the next Lok Sabha elections from here.

Go green, Japanese way

Fazilka: NGOs Munshi Ram Charitable Trust and Jwala Bai Nathu Ram Ahuja Trust have come up with a Japanese technique to increase the forest cover in Fazilka. The trusts have decided to plant 1,500-2,000 trees using Japan’s Miyawaki technique of plantation. The technique ensures that the plant growth is 10 times faster and 30 times denser than usual. It involves planting trees of native species plants in the same area which help each other to grow faster and denser. The saplings can be planted in small spaces and is called a mini-forest. Trust representative Vikram Ahuja said in the first phase, the samplings were being planted on Badha Lake road near the residence of Deputy Commissioner. Ahuja said Fazilka’s green cover had come down to less than 3 per cent only, while the sustainable level of green cover for a healthy eco-system is over 30 per cent.

Form group, have say

Chandigarh: Taking a cue from the famous proverb “United we stand, divided we fall”, a group of Congress legislators have formed an organised group to get their issues “effectively” addressed from the babus and even ministers, in certain cases. The only rule to be a member of the group is that a new entrant has to swear by the name of God at a religious place. Two MLAs from Malwa confided that while individually approaching officers, it was difficult to get works done in a time-bound manner even if their party is in the power in the state. “We have to cater to the people of our constituencies. So if we fail to get their work done on time, we are sure to lose our support base. Ultimately, it is the voter who matters in every election,” remarks an MLA.

Olden days, golden days indeed

Abohar: At 93, social activist Jagdish Chander Nagpal has authored “Olden Days, Golden Days”, which was released on Sunday at a function here on Sunday. Sub-Divisional Magistrate Poonam Singh, former SDM BL Sikka and members of the Nagpal family were present. A DAV College Lahore alumni, JC, as his friends call him, says in the olden days life was simple, slow, peaceful and comfortable. “People were at peace, had fear of their parents and the police. We never heard of snatchings or rape, but in the present times, things get reversed,” he said. Indian American Economic Development council chairman Shudh Parkash Singh said, “Self-made men are always wiser and more grounded.” Justice Iqbal Singh (retd) said the book would be guiding the youth to serve the humanity.

Doctor by qualification & heart

Hoshiarpur: A Hoshiarpur-based IAS officer, Dr Rakesh Minhas, posted in Daman, is earning the blessings of people on social media for his efforts to save lives of people injured in road accident. His photographs are shared widely over the social media. Dr Minhas, Collector of Daman, was recently passing from Athal village, near Haveli farms to Daman, where he found two persons were seriously injured due to electric shock in an accident in which a crane was hit with electric wires. Dr Minhas, being a medical professional stopped, his vehicle and gave crucial treatment to save the lives till the ambulance arrived. “He is an IAS officer by profession and a doctor by qualification and heart. He has done his duty with complete devotion and we are proud of him,” says his father Dr Anoop Kumar, a surgeon based in Hoshiarpur.
