It’s all fluff, no substance, claims Capt

Punjab
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, July 11 Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has expressed disappointment at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “failure to address any of the major concerns of the farmers” at his Malout rally, while lashing out at the Akalis for “betraying Punjab by allowing the Haryana CM to be present on the occasion”. The farmers found no succour for their problems in his long speech, which was high on fluff and short on substance, alleged Capt Amarinder, expressing shock at the fact that the PM failed to even mention farmer suicides and debts or the Swaminathan report. “And to rub salt on their wounds, the Badals, instead of using the opportunity to fight for Punjab’s rights on the water and SYL issue, shared the dais with the Haryana CM, who was actively working against

As govt fails dope test, it’s up to people

Punjab
Kuljit Bains Punjab’s war against drugs is baffling. Just when we were made to believe things were taking a turn for the better, we are back in a state of panic. Was the rising hope based on falsehoods handed out by the government, or is the present alarm caused by a media in overdrive? Either way, the picture turning out right now is a horrendous tragedy — young men doubling over on roadsides, mothers wailing, and families destroyed. For this apparent turn of events, the state government has a lot to answer. There are contradictions in police claims that make it impossible to make sense of what is going on. The Special Task Force (STF) against drugs says the main supply lines have been snapped, yet the common refrain in de-addiction centres is drugs are available freely, whic...

It’s a gimmick:Bains

Punjab
Amritsar: Lok Insaaf Party MLA Simarjit Singh Bains on Saturday termed Congress leaders’ eagerness to undergo a dope test a gimmick aimed at deflecting the people’s attention from the spate of drug deaths. Addressing party members at Jallianwala Bagh on the conclusion of his statewide “black week” against the drug menace, he stressed the need to end the police-politician nexus. He sought the removal of state DGP Suresh Arora on the basis of a report by DGP Sidharth Chattopadhyay, submitted in the High Court. Bains said the helpline started by his party had recorded over 2,000 complaints from addicts’ families. TNS The Tribune

It’s a long road ahead: Ex-judge

Punjabi Politics
Saurabh Malik Tribune News Service Chandigarh, July 2 Expressing doubt about the deterrent effect of death penalty in drug cases, former judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Justice Ranjit Singh said the process of bringing about a change in the existing laws was long and not without complications. Heading a commission to probe sacrilege incidents, Justice Ranjit Singh said the focus should rather be on the rehabilitation of drug addicts, especially when the European and other countries were doing away with death penalty. He said the NDPS Act would require an amendment to provide for death penalty to peddlers. Being a Central Act, it would essentially require the President’s concurrence. Referring to Article 20 of the Constitution on safeguarding the rights of persons accused of cri
