Thrown off the political bus due to reasons beyond their control, there is a section of leadership within the BJP that hopes for a second chance to come back to mainstream of politics.

Goes slow against hotel owners near bus stand 21.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Patiala, June 19 The Patiala Municipal Corporation (MC) is yet to act against alleged illegal construction by the owners of Corner Hotel in the city.  Officials say a report regarding the matter will be submitted to MC Commissioner Gurpreet Singh Khaira on Wednesday and appropriate action on a number of points will be initiated. The corporation had earlier received a notice from the Public Works Department (PWD) regarding alleged illegal construction on the site in April, 2016, but the civic body failed to act on it for two years.

Clogged roads in dire need of remedial measures 21.6.2018 The Tribune
SK Saluja Chandigarh, being the capital of two states has grown at a faster pace than expected, and so is the traffic. Unfortunately, the scope of widening the roads is limited. Remedial measures such as replacing rotaries with traffic lights, plugging cross movement within various sectors, optimising traffic signals to smoothen the traffic and upgrading public transport system are being implemented in Chandigarh since long. Now, the time has come to think deeply into the issue to address this swelling concern by implementing eco-friendly measures that will take the city one step forward towards Smart City concept. A few such measures include implementation of more traffic rules such as restricting to lane movement, constant speed movement for smooth movement, dedicated lanes for two-wheelers and cyclists for decongesting the traffic, tapping and encouraging government employees to use public transport by providing them dedicated transport system, optimum utilisation of available space for traffic ...

Futuristic city needs smart public transport 21.6.2018 The Tribune
SK Khosla The Chandigarh Administration has been making plans and proposals in a piecemeal fashion to check the traffic woes in City Beautiful, but hardly does anything concrete. Several instances are there when many dignitaries have paid lip service to riding bicycles on specific occasions, just for publicity. The Metro project has almost been scrapped after spending money of the tax payers. Over the years, nobody has thought of giving a re-look to the transport system. With an area of 114 sq km, Chandigarh has witnessed a rapid growth in the number of motor vehicles. The furious pace of motorisation had led to severe traffic congestion and air pollution, adversely impacting the well-being of people, the energy security of the city and the economic efficiency. Policies to deal with these problems have aimed at improving our public transport system in the belief that this will enable people to shift from using personal vehicles. Public transport uses less road space, consumes less fuel and emits fewer ...

Another village ravaged, miners dig deep 21.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Mohali, June 20 With more areas, that have fallen prey to illegal mining on the periphery of Chandigarh, coming to light, the murderous attack on forest officials has placed the spotlight on another village being ravaged by the sand mafia. Seonk, the picturesque village that houses Jayanti Dam and the nearby Jayanti Devi temple, is the latest victim. While the Majri-Khizrabad belt in the area has been depleted of most of its sand over the years, Seonk is fast losing its natural resources. About 2 km from the dam, a rough terrain inside the forest takes you to trenches extending over at least 5 km from where earth has been dug up. A visit by this correspondent on Wednesday showed fresh tyre marks in the area, indicating that the illegal activity is on. The area that has been dug up is a rich source of sand as before the construction of Jayanti Dam, the rivulet used to flow through it.

For private bus operators, traffic rules are last thing to be observed 21.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Ludhiana, June 20 Private buses run by various transport companies in the region continue to violate traffic norms in the city. Whether it is picking passengers from undesignated bus stops, blowing pressure horns, jumping traffic lights, speeding and overloading, private bus operators are often seen indulging in such practices without any fear of law. Frequent traffic jams are witnessed in various parts of the city as private bus operators pick and drop passengers from undesignated bus stops on roadsides. Such scenes are common outside the local bus stand, on Ferozepur Road, Chandigarh Road and Jalandhar bypass.

Many bus and truck drivers were issued challans during the past few days for using pressure horns, but the move failed to yield ...
