‘Jinxed’ between Zero Line and wire fencing 27.4.2017 The Tribune
Anirudh Gupta Ferozepur, April 26 It is 8.17am, and about 25 tractor-trailers and bullock carts are queued up near border pillar number 195 along the India-Pakistan border in Dona Telu Mal village. Farmers are waiting under the scorching sun for their turn to get past the high-security BSF fencing gate. Before they go further, the farmers are not only frisked by gun-toting BSF sentinels, but also their agricultural equipment are thoroughly scanned by sniffer dogs. Women are also frisked by special BSF women volunteers. Even ID cards are checked. After being sure, the BSF sleuths give “green signal” and let the farmers go past the fencing gate. On other side of gate, the farmers have to wait for hours, again. This time, for their turn to cross the Sutlej on the wooden “bera” to reach their fields. The entire process takes at least three to four hours. There are three private “beras”, for which local farmers have contributed; the government has provided only one. Even BSF troops use “beras” to transport ...

Forest mafia at it again 27.4.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, April 26 Well-heeled forest mafia is spreading its wings across Punjab, especially in Chandigarh’s periphery – threatening the ecologically-fragile Shivalik Hills. Even as the Capt Amarinder Singh government is taking measures to check mining, transport and cable mafia, chopping of trees is going on unchecked under the patronage of revenue and forest officials. Despite Forest and Wildlife Preservation Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot issuing strict guidelines, the illegal felling of ‘khair’ trees is going on in the forest areas of Siswan and Mirzapur villages, located along the road connecting Kurali with Baddi in Himachal Pradesh. On the pretext of clearing the land that has been de-listed from the provisions of the Punjab Land Preservation Act (PLPA), 1900, a large-scale felling has been going on for the last few days in the thick forest area abutting the Siswan check dam. Fresh signs of felling of ‘khair’ and other trees and chopping these into pieces for smuggling were ...

Kochi Corporation seals Kokkers theatre 27.4.2017
Kochi: After long years of legal battle and uncertainties, the Kochi Corporation has  taken steps to attach the Kokkers theatre and the 65 cents of land owned by it in Fort Kochi. In an early morning move, the corporation authorities consisting of Mayor Soumini Jain, standing committee chairman A.B. Sabu, opposition leader K.J Antony, corporation additional secretary A.S. Anuja and other officials  sealed the building with police support. The attachment of the theatre and the land is a major achievement as the previous council had failed to act on the contentious issue. The opposition CPM had earlier announced a hunger strike against the delay in attaching it.   The corporation had allocated funds for the purpose and announced a new film city project to be executed with the support of the State Film Development Corporation. Meanwhile,  the action dominated  Wednesday’s corporation council meeting. The councillors alleged that they were kept in the dark over the “surgical strike” and even the members from ...

State depriving people of development: Nuh landowners 27.4.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, April 25 Nearly two years back, the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government laid out the roadmap for the state’s development. But petitions filed in the Punjab and Haryana High Court by Nuh landowners have brought the claims of progress under a cloud. Questioning the de-notification of land nearly nine years after the initiation of the acquisition process, the petitioners have claimed that the state administration was revengefully holding on to backwardness where the locals had failed to serve the government’s oblique motives. Taking up a bunch of about 10 petitions by Shamsher Singh Malik and other petitioners, Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Harinder Singh Sidhu issued notice of motion for May 16 to the state and two other respondents. The petitioners claimed the authorities concerned in the state government had lost the right to govern for “not being true to their oath and also for their failure in doing their moral duty while raising the big slogan of development and ...
