Beti Padhao? All girls of Hisar school flunk Class X; Whether the girls have suffered the consequences of the bad policies of the government?
Villagers’ repeated complaints about shortage of teachers fell on deaf ears
Kabrel (Hisar) :
It seems the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign is yet to reach Kabrel village of the Adampur segment in the district.
Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS) has produced the worst result of the district this year in the matriculation examination as none of the students in the batch of 24 girls could pass the examination.
This is the only government school having zero result this year.
Villagers said they had anticipated poor result, as the school had a shortage of teachers in the previous session. The village panchayat kept on making many rounds of the offices of the district administration, demanding teachers.
Village sarpanch Dharm Singh said the village school had no teacher of science, mathematics, Hindi and Sanskrit, while the social science teacher of the village had been sent to another school on deputation.
“Students had complained about the absence of teaching staff. I visited the District Education Officer (DEO) several times, asking him to deploy teaching faculty. But the teachers were transferred to this school only four months before the examinations,” he said.
The head teacher of the school, Ramphal Singh, too, blamed shortage of staff as the cause behind the zero per cent result. “The newly deployed teachers tried hard to improve the academic situation. But we realised that the academic standards were below average,” he said, saying that the school had seven teachers of various subjects to teach 126 students from Class VI to X.
Out of the 24 girls who failed in the matriculation examination, 14 have got re-admission in the school.
DEO BS Saherawat refused to comment on the matter.
INLD is ‘B’ team of BJP : Deepender; Is he right?
Rohtak MP Deepender Hooda described INLD, the 'B' team of the BJP, and alleged that both the parties were “infected” with “Hooda-phobia” (extreme fear of former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda).
Addressing a public meeting at Ellenabad, the home constituency of Leader of Opposition Abhay Singh Chautala, the MP said that thousands of people were participating in Hooda’s ‘Rath Yatra’ showed that they wanted the Congress back to power.
Deepender said that the manner the present BJP government drove the state backwards in development, people remember 10 years of Hooda regime as the golden period in the state’s history.
Coming down on the Khattar government, Deepender said that it had failed on all fronts be it providing water and electricity to people, or maintaining law and order or ensuring development activities in the state.
Hooda junior said that during 10 years of Hooda regime, Haryana had come on top in per capita income, per capita investment, industrialisation, sports and giving incentives to sportspersons.
However, in the past four years, the state had been left behind many other states on all these counts while it had come on top in matter of crime against women.
He alleged that Haryana has witnessed incidents of rioting and violence four times in four years leaving people in fear.
Bharat Singh Beniwal, former MLA from Ellenabad, also addressed the meeting.
Congress must choose between ‘thumkas’, winning elections: BJP; Is the MP right?
BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Chopra said the Congress must decide what is more important to them, winning elections or ‘thumkas’ (dance moves).
The remark came after Haryanvi dancer Sapna Chaudhary reportedly visited UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s office on Sunday.
Speaking to media here, the BJP MP from Karnal said, “The Congress already has people who dance, and that’s enough. The party needs to prioritise what they want to do, whether they want to dance or win an election. (Congress mein thumke lagane wale jo hain woh hi thumke lagayenge, yeh unko dekhna hai ki thumke lagane hain ya chunaav jeetna hai).”
Chaudhary reportedly paid a visit to Sonia’s office on June 24; however, she was unable to meet the UPA chairperson.
Interacting with media, Chaudhary expressed her keenness towards the Congress and Sonia Gandhi, which has raised speculations of her joining the party in the near future.
On a related note, the Haryanvi dancer had made headlines after her appearance and dance moves on the reality show ‘Bigg Boss-Season 11’.
She was last seen in a dance number in the film ‘Veerey Di Wedding’.
Her father’s death when she was just 12 years old had made her take up dancing to support her family. There was no looking back since.
Not allowed to speak, Deepender skips ride; Does the credit of bringing the metro up to Bahadurgarh goes to MP Deepender Hooda?
Congress Member of Parliament (MP) from Rohtak, Deepender Hooda, expressed his resentment at being not given time to address the gathering during the inaugural function of the Mundka-Bahadurgarh metro in Bahadurgarh, thereby making him skip the metro ride.
Interacting with media after the function, Deepender said the extension of the metro up to Bahadurgarh was his dream project and he wanted to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for inaugurating it, but the government did not give him time to speak.
“Being an elected public representative of this area in the Lok Sabha, I should have been given time to speak on the occasion, but the intention of the state government got exposed before the function when the district authorities sent me the minute-to-minute programme for the inaugural function as there was no mention of my address,” said Deepender, adding that he also wanted to put forward the demand of the extension of the metro up to Rohtak before the PM.
The MP said the state government failed to keep the decorum by not giving him time to speak, but he had the courtesy by attending the function. “This act of the government has again proved that the BJP wants to get political mileage by inaugurating all those projects which were initiated during the previous Congress regime,” he said.
Supporters stopped outside venue
Deepender Hooda claimed that his supporters were stopped outside the programme venue by the police when they, along with Deepender, reached there in a cavalcade. Though Deepender asked the cops on duty to allow them to attend the function, the latter did not let them go inside. After waiting for some minutes, the MP went inside the programme venue, while his supporters waited for him some distance from the venue. They lifted Deepender on their shoulders when he came out from the programme.
Bahadurgarh Metro dedicated to public; Will this improve the traffic system?
Bahadurgarh (Jhajjar) :
The 11.2-km-long fully elevated Mundka-Bahadurgarh section of the Delhi Metro’s Green Line was opened to passengers on Sunday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the section through video-conferencing at a function held at the City Park Metro station in Bahadurgarh here, known as the Gateway to Haryana.
The Prime Minister also symbolically flagged off the train through video-conferencing which was seen by people on the LED screen installed at the programme venue.
This will facilitate the travel of people employed in industrial units along the corridor, besides catering to city youths studying in the state’s upcoming educational hub.
This is the DMRC’s third foray into the neighbouring state of Haryana. Metro services are already operational in Gurgaon (Yellow Line) and Faridabad (Violet Line).
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, Haryana Agriculture Minister Om Prakash Dhankar, Rohtak MP Deepender Singh Hooda and BJP MLA Naresh Kaushik were present on the occasion.
Addressing the gathering, Modi said the expansion of the Metro up to Bahadurgarh would transform the “Gateway to Haryana” into the “Gateway of Development” as a large number of people, especially students, servicemen and businessmen, who use to daily commute to and from Delhi, would avail this connectivity.
“There is a direct link between connectivity and development, hence the BJP government is leaving no stone unturned to build convenient, comfortable and affordable urban transport systems in cities. Even, a special policy has been formulated for the first time not only to set a basic standard for metros but also to cater to all technical issues related to metros,” said the PM.
Modi said the BJP government wanted to boost the “Make in India” programme by making coaches of the metro in India itself. Several nations helped India in the making of the Delhi metro and now, India was assisting other nations by designing coaches for their metro systems. Twelve cities were being connected through metro in the country, he added.
“After Shanghai, Beijing, London and New York, the Delhi Metro has become the fifth largest metro network in the world. Two modern metro coach manufacturing plants are being set up in Vadodara of Gujarat and Chennai in Tamil Nadu. After the setting up of these plants, India will be able to export metro coaches to other countries as well,” the PM asserted.
Earlier, thanking the Prime Minister for inaugurating the metro line, Khattar said the Central government had given many projects to Haryana, which showed special affection of the PM towards the state.
He said the 11-km-long track had been constructed at a cost of Rs 2,028 crore and it would benefit 1.5 lakh passengers. Passengers would now also feel the “ease of living” as they would face less traffic congestion on roads.
