Sulking MLAs eyeing Cabinet berth?

Sulking MLAs eyeing Cabinet berth?

Patiala: Legislators Hardyal Kamboj, Madanlal Jalalpur, Rajinder Singh and Nirmal Singh, who have criticised the state government and the bureaucracy for allegedly neglecting elected representatives, met state Congress chief Sunil Jakhar, urging him to ensure that officers listened to them. At a recent press conference, the four MLAs were asked whether or not anyone, including CM’s political adviser Capt Sandeep Sandhu, invited them for talks. To this, one of the MLAs said: “Capt Sandhu is merely a clerk in the CM’s office. We are senior to him. We will go only when the state party president calls us.” Sources say two of the MLAs are eyeing the vacant berth in the Cabinet. The legislators have, however, made it clear that they are not in the race for any post. All they want is that their supporters should be given a hearing and their works should be done.

Award for sketch artist 

Chandigarh: Head constable Ashok Kumar has received a special cash award and an appreciation certificate for making a record size painting of Guru Nanak for the 550th Parkash Purb. It measures 18 x 12 ft. After a news report regarding his record appeared in The Tribune, Ludhiana Commissioner Rakesh Aggarwal awarded him Rs 5,000 for the painting. A sketch artist, Kumar’s name has listed in the Indian Book of Records. He is hoping the Punjab Government will display the painting at the Kartarpur corridor.

Officer goes the extra mile for a cause 

Fatehgarh Sahib: Additional Deputy Commissioner (G) Jaspreet Singh has set a unique example by performing his administrative duties during the day and providing free coaching to youngsters belonging to weaker sections. The young IAS officer is helping needy students prepare for competitive examinations like IAS, PCS and allied services by sparing time from his schedule in the evening. Jaspreet is also providing free books to aspiring candidates with the help of an NGO set up by him in collaboration with his NRI friends. "My hard work will pay off if even a few of the aspirants guided by me make it to the coveted civil services," said the officer. His NGO has also adopted 30 government primary schools, which are in a pathetic condition, to transform them into model schools. 

In father’s memory 

Sangrur: Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla has started organising two medical camps every week in the memory of his late father Sant Ram Singla. On Sunday, he inaugurated the camp at Sundar Basti government school. The first camp was organised on Saturday at Ambedkar Nagar. “The government has been trying to provide the best health facilities to residents. But I, on my own, have started two medical camps every week to help the poor. In all, 850 patients were examined on Saturday and 675 on Sunday,” Singla said. More camps will be organised on December 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, and 22.

To the aid of sportswoman

Gurdaspur: Cabinet minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa is turning out to be a messiah for players, particularly those belonging to the humble background. At a recent function of a government school in his Assembly seat, Fatehgarh Churian, he got to know that state-level athlete Manpreet Kaur had broken her javelin and, consequently, could not participate in tourneys. He asked the sportswoman the cost of the javelin. Wasting no time, the minister took out a wad of notes from his pocket, amounting to Rs 15,000 and handed it over to her. On at least three earlier occasions, he has provided sportspersons with financial security.

Reaching out via medical camps 

Sangrur: Amanat Foundation organised a medical check-up camp at Lehra on Sunday. Its chairperson Bibi Gagandeep Kaur Dhindsa, with the help of specialists from DMC, Ludhiana, provided residents with medical help. “In all, 768 patients were examined. More such camps will be organised,” Bibi Dhindsa said. Former Finance Minister and Lehra SAD MLA Parminder Dhindsa said the medical camp had no connection with any political party. “It was a non-political event and the sole aim was to provide the best medical help to area residents,” Dhindsa said.
