Maha uses Malaysian system to reduce neonatal deaths 20.9.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The state government will use management practices followed by Malaysia to rein in neonatal deaths by monitoring the performance of the health officials concerned. On Tuesday, Maharashtra cabinet decided to use Malaysian government's Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) system and its Big Fast Results (BFR) methodology in three state departments — health, school education, and water supply and sanitation. This will help reduce neonatal deaths to single-digit numbers with special focus on tribal districts, revive dormant water supply schemes, and improve learning of schoolchildren. "This will help us generate results for various policies by re-engineering management processes," said an official from the planning department, adding that an 11-week programme would be held for these departments to come up policies to change outcomes. The NITI Aayog inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with PEMANDU in 2015. The project will be supervised by a ministerial committee under the planning ...

Why 200 Mulund residents would rather die than move 20.9.2017 mid-day.com
The 65-year-old Shah Niwas building in Mulund West Over 200 residents of a dangerous and dilapidated 65-year-old building in Mulund West feel that living on the edge is better than vacating the structure, without the surety of alternative accommodation. On August 14, barely two weeks before Bhendi Bazaar's Hussaini building collapsed, killing 33 people, the BMC had served a notice to the residents of Shah Niwas, ordering them to immediately vacate the ground-plus-three structure since it was unsafe to live in. The ground-plus-three structure had been categorised as C-1, making it unsafe to live in. However, the residents, who are currently caught in a tussle with landlord Balkrishna Shingar for want of alternate accommodation, have decided to stay put. Their defiance has irked the BMC, which has gone ahead and disconnected the building's water connection. The ward officer has also warned residents that if they don't comply with orders, the corporation will disconnect electricity supply too. Shah Niwas ...

Old city residents without water for 4 days 20.9.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jammu, September 19 The inability of the Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department to rectify even minor water supply snags has led to another chaos among the residents of the old Rehari area who are suffering without water for the past four days. In June, a major breakdown had occurred at Mian Dido Chowk, Ambphalla, which left large areas of old Rehari, Sarwal, Panjtirthi and Ambphalla without water for nearly 20 days. Three months later, the same problem has occurred again in the old city areas and the Assistant Executive Engineer concerned, Sanjeev Gupta has promised that his men were on the job and water supply would be restored within a day or two. Earlier, for the restoration of water supply, new pipes were laid and people of the area had even bought new pipes of their own to help the department rectify the damage. In between, since the secretariat is presently in Srinagar, people of the area were seen standing in serpentine queues opposite the secretariat to get water. “When ...

Andhra Pradesh government ignores Telangana, diverts water 20.9.2017
Hyderabad: With the TS government lodging a protest against Andhra Pradesh unilaterally operating the Pothireddypadu head regulator and diverting Krishna waters from the Srisailam dam, the Krishna River Management Board had to step in and order the Srisailam dam authorities to immediately close the regulator gates.  Srisailam dam authorities, however, say they will continue to release the water and they are prepared to deduct the same quantity whenever KRMB issues a water releasing order. The consent of the chief engineers of both states is usually taken before KRMB orders the water to be released from the dam, but this time, Telangana state was not consulted. Telangana"s engineer-in-chief C. Muralidhar wrote to KRMB member secretary Sameer Chatterjee on Tuesday, asking him to convene a meeting of the Board immediately to take appropriate measures for distribution of waters to meet the drinking water needs of TS.  In his letter, Mr Muralidhar stated that despite clear warning given ...

Won’t bow to SGPC pressure: Ex-Jathedar 20.9.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Amritsar, September 19 Former Jathedar of Takht Damdama Sahib Giani Gurmukh Singh said today that the the SGPC’s pressure tactics at the behest of its political bosses were a warning to other Sikh clerics not to revolt. However, he would not backtrack from his apology over being part of the clergy which took the controversial decision to exonerate the Sirsa dera head in a 2007 blasphemy case. Recently, power and water supply to his official residence in the Golden Temple complex was snapped so as to evict his family. Though the connection was restored later, sources said the former Jathedar was being pressurised to take back his repentance letter submitted to the sacked Panj Piaras of Akal Takht on September 12 at a Moga gurdwara. “The reaction of the SGPC was painful as I had spent 22 years in performing service of ‘guru ghar’. Where would I move with my ailing parents and a son who is pursuing studies in Amritsar? I do not even have a one-marla land to accommodate my family. I did ...

Thermal contractual employees protest, demand regularisation of services 20.9.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Bathinda, September 19 Members of the Theka Mulazim Sangharsh Morcha staged a protest in front of the Guru Hargobind Thermal plant in Lehra Mohabbat here today. Raising slogans against the state government for not heeding their demands, members burnt an effigy of the state government as part of their protest. Accusing the state government of aiming at privatization of government run thermal plants, the protesting employees stated that despite making tall promises, even the Congress government was now expressing its helplessness in keeping the thermal plants running. State president of the union Rajinder Singh Dhillon and Varinder Singh addressed the protesting employees and stated that following regular agitations by the unions members, the SAD-BJP alliance had devised a policy in 2016 to regularize the jobs of employees working on contractual basis. But the present government is trying its best to do away with the policy. “Now the state government is stating that only those ...
