Govt primary schools sans sweepers 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Ludhiana, April 20 It seems that the Capt Amarinder Singh-led government has turned a blind eye towards unavailability of sweepers in government primary schools. After a video of students lifting garbage in Government Primary School, Baba Shri Chand Colony, went viral, the Punjab State Commission for Protection of Child Rightson February 8 shot a letter asking District Education Officer to write to the district development and panchayat officer to provide sweepers. However, even after two months primary schools have still been grappling with dearth of sweepers. Charanjit Kaur, Principal of Government Primary School, Sri Chand Colony said, “We had requested area councillor to provide sweepers but to no avail. We have employeed a private sweeper and pay him from own pockets.” Sukhwinder Singh, Principal of Government Primary School, New Subhash Nagar said, “Nothing has been done till date as per the orders of the commission. The letter asked the municipal corporation to provide ...

Irrigation Dept, JMC in tussle over Ranbir canal 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jammu, April 20 The Irrigation and Flood Control Department and the Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) are at loggerheads over the dumping of solid waste by residential colonies and traders along the Ranbir canal, converting it into a huge dump. The dumping of solid waste goes on unabated in the water body, the lifeline for thousands of farmers in the Jammu region. On Thursday, the authorities released water into the canal ahead of Baisakhi, exposing the failure of desilting carried out by them. Huge quantities of polythene and other waste material could be seen floating on the water, which irrigates thousands of kanals of land across the plains of Jammu, including basmati rice growing in the areas along the International Border. Even the relevant provisions of the MC laws are not being followed properly and the water body is slowly turning into a huge dump. Blame mainly lies on the people who are dumping waste directly into the water. However, the civic bodies have failed to take ...

Tribune News Service Bathinda, April 19 A total of 11 agenda items worth Rs 3.25 crore will be discussed at the General House meetings of the Municipal Corporation of Bathinda on Friday. Surprisingly, giving the go-by to developmental works, the agenda items focus on office work, including extending the term of sanitation workers, who have been working on contract, by six months. The extension may cost the civic body Rs 43.65 lakh. Despite being opposed by Congress as well as SAD-BJP councillors at the last House meeting, the issue of spending money on development in a colony being planned by a private builder has also been included on the list. The agenda of development works in a private builder’s project had raised many eyebrows and a demand to constitute a sub-committee to look into the matter was raised as the MC is facing a fund crunch. Councillors had also objected to the alacrity with which the civic body is willing to take up developmental works in a private colony. The MC may have put several ...
