Punjab Ministers chef 'acquires' sand mine for over Rs 26 crore 25.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Punjab's irrigation and power minister Rana Gurjit Singh is courting controversy for bidding and acquiring sand and gravel mines in the name of his cook and other office staff in Punjab. The ministers chef outbid 32 other players to acquire a Rs 26.51 crore mining site in Punjab. The SAD has demanded immediate sacking of the minister. Party MP Prem Singh Chandumajra said the case should be handed over to the enforcement directorate for investigation. The Akali Dal says it would raise the issue in Parliament. "The Punjab government is answerable as to why it was letting cooks and employees of Rana Gurjit, who were paid a couple of thousand as salary, to participate and win auctions by submitting bids of Rs 50 crore. This amounts to encouraging benaami bids through hawala transactions which are even a threat to national security," he said. Stating that the entire auction was an eye wash and reminiscent of Congress deceit and doubles standards, Chandumajra said it was condemnable that the state apparatus ...

No stake in sand mining business, claims Rana Gurjeet 25.5.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, May 25 Rejecting media reports, Punjab Irrigation and Power Minister Rana Gurjeet Singh on Thursday clarified that neither he nor his company — Rana Sugars Limited — has any direct or indirect stake in the sand mining business.  The minister categorically denied any links of his family members or employees with the sand mining business.  The minister termed as incorrect the reports in a section of the media claiming that two of his company employees had successfully bid for sand mines. The employees in question had left their jobs a long time ago, which can be verified from the company’s records, Rana Gurjeet said. Though he was personally not involved in the day-to-day functioning of his companies for the last about two decades, he could say “with command and confidence that neither any of the employees working in these companies nor any of my family members has any interest or stake in sand mining business in Punjab,” Rana Gurjeet asserted. The fact that some of his ...

MRTS stations lack proper toilets, drinking water 25.5.2017
Chennai: Clean toilets and proper amenities at railway stations remain a dream for Mass Rapid Transport System (MRTS) passengers over a year after the Madras High Court ordered Southern Railway to ensure such facilities. The local MRTS stations lack proper toilets and drinking water facilities. Some toilets along this stretch are either locked or lack maintenance and water supply in the washrooms. The taps in the many such washrooms are broken. Indira Nagar station had a clean platform, but lacked a proper toilet and water facility. The toilets and the flush were broken, which made it unusable for the commuters. “The water in the taps is no longer drinkable. Earlier the station had drinking water, which was supplied by the Corporation, but with the drought situation there is no water available,” said Rajesh, an employee at the station. The stations have separate dustbins for biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste. But plastic debris can be seen lying along the tracks. Covers, chocolate and biscuit ...
