WhatsApp video, photo of crime to fetch cash reward in Jhajjar; Will crime prevention possible from community policing?

Jhajjar :
The district police have come up with another plan to curb crime and ensure prompt action on the information pertaining to any crime.

It has released the WhatsApp number 8930500677 to receive inputs, videos and photos about any crime for taking immediate action. Significantly, the police will also honour the sender with appropriate cash prize for assisting it in curbing various crimes.

“The move aims at promoting community policing and ensuring valuable contribution of the public in preventing crime. Quick action will be taken on those videos/photos and other information received on the WhatsApp number. It will not only help the police in maintaining law and order but also prove supportive in curbing the occurrence of crime,” said Pankaj Nain, Superintendent of Police (SP), Jhajjar.

He maintained that videos and photos pertaining to any crime work like an evidence for the police during investigation of any case.

Most of the times, these videos and photos provide decisive clues, which later turn out to be instrumental in conducting the probe in the right direction.
A provision has, therefore, been made to award cash prize to the sender for providing crucial inputs about any crime, he added.

“Besides, we have decided to conduct a survey across the district in order to identify those elderly people who live alone. The main aim of the planning is to provide them security and to connect the police with them for help purpose. After the survey, the PCR and riders will remain in touch with such elderly people to ensure their security,” said Nain.

The SP claimed that several steps had also been taken to ensure the security and safety of women and girls in the district.

Tanwar to launch yatra from Hooda’s stronghold in July; Is Ashok Tanwar looking to snatch the support of Bhupinder Hooda?

Chandigarh :
The turf war between Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee(HPCC) chief Ashok Tanwar and former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is set to intensify with former planning the next phase of his bicycle yatra from Hooda’s assembly segment Garhi Sampla-Kiloi next month.

In fact, Tanwar chose to announce the next phase of his “Haryana Bachao-Parivartan Lao” bicycle yatra from Hooda’s stronghold Garhi Sampla-Kiloi to Kalanaur from July 19 to 22 at a show of strength here on Thursday where party representatives, mostly belonging to anti-Hooda camp, from across Haryana assembled to discuss party’s strategy for the forthcoming parliamentary and assembly elections.

While Hooda was holding his Jan Kranti Yatra, Tanwar was holding parallel bicycle yatra across the state bringing fissures within the faction-ridden Congress to the fore.
Representatives from assembly segments, meanwhile, brainstormed the strategy for reaching out to the people under party’s programme “Congress Ghar-Ghar” to highlight various acts of omission and commission of the BJP Government led by Manohar Lal Khattar.

With that end in mind, the meeting decided to carry out the “Matka Phor & Tube Tor” programme to highlight the shortage of water and inadequate supply of electricity. “The people are suffering badly due to shortage of these facilities while the BJP is resorting to false propaganda to mislead residents,” Tanwar alleged.

He also took a dig at ‘self-styled’ leaders, who indulged in photo-ops to garner publicity saying that the party tickets for the Lok Sabha and the assembly polls would be given to those who reached out to the people.

Starting point: Garhi Sampla Kiloi

State Congress chief Ashok Tanwar chose to announce the next phase of his ‘Haryana Bachao-Parivartan Lao’ bicycle yatra from Hooda’s stronghold Garhi Sampla-Kiloi to Kalanaur from July 19 to 22 at a show of strength here where party representatives, mostly belonging to anti-Hooda camp, from across Haryana assembled to discuss party’s strategy for parliamentary and Assembly elections.

Absent for long, 161 Haryana govt doctors face axe; Is this a good step to improve health services in Haryana?

Chandigarh :
As many as 161 government doctors who have been absenting themselves from duty for long face the axe.

Sources say the state government has decided to serve them notice through newspapers, asking them to rejoin duty within a specified time. If they fail to rejoin, the government will dismiss them from service.

Confirming the development, Health Minister Anil Vij said more than 150 doctors had been absent from duty for long, some of them for several years.

“We want to recruit new doctors to address the problem of shortage. We can recruit new people only against sanctioned posts. If more than 150 sanctioned posts are occupied by doctors who are not working, it is double jeopardy for us, as they neither working with us nor enabling us to fill those posts,” Vij said.

Asked whether or not the 161 doctors are those who executed a bond for serving the Haryana Government in lieu of pursuing their post-graduation, Vij replied in the negative.

“They might have started private practice or joined service in other states without resigning from the Haryana Government,” he said.

Jasbir Singh Parmar, the president of the Haryana Civil Medical Services (HCMS), an organisation of government doctors in the state, claimed that poor service conditions in the state made the doctors to quit.
“The Delhi and Punjab Government give better salaries to their doctors. Besides, Delhi gives four assured career progressions (ACPs) in fourth, ninth, thirteenth and twentieth year of service, while Punjab gives three ACPs in fourth, ninth and fourteenth year, but Haryana gives three ACPs in fifth, tenth and fifteenth year of service,” Dr Parmar alleged.
Sources say the problem of shortage of doctors is of bigger proportions.

Sources said that of the 3,083 sanctioned posts of doctor (medical officer) in the Haryana Health Department, about 500 are lying vacant.

This does not mean that 2,583 doctors are actually working. Apart from 161 doctors who have been absent from duty, about 300 are on childcare leave on any given day and as many doctors are on paid study leave. And about 50 doctors are on deputation to Chandigarh.

To make matters worse, sources in the department say there is inequitable distribution of doctors across the state as doctors prefer postings in Panchkula and Gurugram.

“In all, 194 medical officers are posted in the Director of Health Services and other allied institutions in Panchkula, even when there is no post sanctioned for them. Besides, 18 doctors are working without a sanctioned post in Panchkula district,” the sources said.

Deny ticket to 90% MPs, MLAs, says BJP report ; Is the popularity of BJP decreasing?

Poll survey conducted; findings submitted to Khattar

New Delhi :
A poll survey conducted on the command of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on the BJP’s prospects in the next parliamentary and Assembly elections has recommended that between 80 per cent and 90 per cent MPs and MLAs should not be given the ticket as their chances of winning are bleak.

According to the survey, chances of winning of a majority of members of Khattar’s Council of Ministers, except for four, are bleak. Sources said on the condition of anonymity that Khattar had got the survey conducted secretly and the report was submitted to him about a fortnight ago.

The report recommended that 90 per cent of the party nominees who had lost in the 2014 parliamentary and Assembly elections should not be considered. The survey found no anti-incumbency, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popularity intact and Khattar’s public image clean.

The report cautioned that renomination of MPs and MLAs having a poor image could act against dividends from Modi’s charm and Khattar’s image. The survey said of the eight sitting MPs, only Union Ministers Krishan Pal Gurjar from Faridabad and Rao Inderjit Singh from Gurugram were in a winning position.

With regard sitting rebel MP Raj Kumar Saini from Kurukshetra, the report categorised him as a winning candidate should the BJP give him the ticket. It said the party stood a chance even if some other good candidate was fielded.

The worry for the BJP was that Saini had declared that he would float his own party and field candidates in all 90 Assembly seats. His supporters had been projecting him as the chief ministerial candidate.

With regard to Bhiwani, the report recommend a new candidate as sitting MP Rao Dharambir Singh was adamant not to contest the parliamentary election.
The party nominees had lost from Rohtak and Hisar in the 2014 General Election. The report said a non-Jat candidate should be fielded from Rohtak if politically expedient. With regard to Hisar, it categorically recommended a “strong” Jat face.
