Chennai: Shoddy re-laying of roads causes water to enter houses 28.5.2017
CHENNAI: Despite the Madras HC passing a directive for re-laying roads after milling the existing roads, work is being shoddily being carried out in different parts of the city. The level of the newly laid roads has become higher than the level of houses. As a result, water enters homes every time it rains. Residents are irked about the issue. From near Sadasiva Nagar to Tharamani road levels have been raised over the years. Due to this, the houses are now at a level lower than the roads. The problem occurs when roads are re-laid over existing roads and this is an issue across the city. Many areas suffered during the floods due to such issues. Residents in Korattur also face similar issues where the metro water pipelines have gone way below the level of their houses.

After the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has now stepped up its attack on the Congress-led state government by demanded the immediate sacking of Power and Irrigation Minister Rana Gurjeet Singh over allegedly acquiring sand and gravel mines by acquiring benami transactions in the name of his former employees.

BKU not happy with Rs25 hike in sugarcane MSP 27.5.2017 The Tribune
Our Correspondent Ludhiana, May 26 The Bharti Kisan Union (Lakhowal) has expressed discontentment over the “meagre” increase of Rs 25 in the minimum support price (MSP) of sugarcane and termed it as a “big joke with the farmers”. Union’s General Secretaries Harinder Singh Lakhowal and Sukhrajwinder Singh Gill urged the government to reconsider the decision and raise the MSP of sugarcane to at least Rs 500 per quintal. Union functionaries said the state government was paying the support price of Rs 300 per quintal to the sugarcane producers and a marginal hike of Rs 25 was meaningless. “Farmers would be motivated to diversify from the traditional crop rotation of wheat and paddy and go for crops such as sugarcane only if they get remunerative prices for their produce,” said a BKU leader. Emphasising upon the dire need to reduce the cultivation of paddy and cutting down the area under this crop to conserve groundwater, Lakhowal and Gill said the government ought to fix the MSP of various crops at 50 per ...

Why silent: AAP to Capt 27.5.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, May 26 The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today gave an ultimatum to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to sack Power Minister Rana Gurjit Singh by Monday, failing so all party MLAs would protest against the government. The Tribune reported on Thursday how sand mining contracts of at least four sites were bagged by employees of the minister’s company during the recent e-auction.

Khaira: Need a day to prove charges against minister 27.5.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jalandhar, May 26 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Sukhpal Khaira said today he would need just 24 hours to bring out the truth behind the shady mining contracts bagged by four employees of Power Minister Rana Gurjit Singh’s company. He claimed to have details of bank accounts, from where money was routed before being deposited for e-bidding of sand mining sites. “I wish that I be given the charge of the State Vigilance Bureau for a day. Within a day, I can bring out the facts and implicate all those involved in the ‘benami’ contracts, money laundering and corrupt practices,” he told the media here today. The Bholath MLA, who was with the Congress earlier but did not go well with Rana Gurjit, alleged, “The minister is lying that Amit Bahadur is not his cook and that of Capt Randhawa, who managed his poll campaign. By saying that the four persons, who bagged mining sites, were his former employees points to minister’s admission.” Khaira said AAP workers would gherao the residence of CM Capt ...
