[चंडीगढ़,पंजाब]पंजाब के ३ स्मार्ट सिटी में “स्वछता” की कसौटी पर एक भी सिटी खरी नहीं
खुशहाल पंजाब के अमृतसर+लुधियाना+जालंधर को बहु प्रचारित स्मार्ट सिटी प्रोजेक्ट में शामिल किया गया है लेकिन इनमे से एक भी सिटी स्वच्छ सर्वेक्षण में टॉप १०० स्वच्छ शहरों में स्थान नहीं प्राप्त कर सकी|
केंद्र के हाउसिंग एंड अर्बन अफेयर के मंत्रालय की रिपोर्ट के अनुसार एक लाख से अधिक की आबादी वाले ४८५ शहरों में स्वच्छ सर्वेक्षण कराया गया था|इनमे से पंजाब के १७ शहरों को शामिल किया गया|दुर्भाग्य से इनमे से एक शहर भी टॉप १०० में स्थान प्राप्त नहीं कर सका|
लुधियाना को १३७ रैंकिंग दी गई है
अमृतसर ने २०८ रैंकिंग हासिल की
जबकि जालंधर को २१५ पर संतोष करना पढ़ा है |बेशक ये रैंकिंग पिछले वर्ष की तुलना में बढ़ी है लेकिन स्मार्ट सिटी प्रोजेक्ट में आने के बावजूद टॉप १०० में भी स्थान ना पाने के कारण प्रदेश में कांग्रेस और केंद्र में भाजपा की सरकार की कार्यप्राणाली पर प्रश्न चिन्ह लगाने स्वाभाविक ही है

[New Delhi] India Recognises UN Restrictions not Repeat Not USA :Iran
India today said it will continue trading with Iran and Venezuela despite US sanctions
“We only recognise UN sanctions. We do not recognise any country-specific sanctions,” External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said at a press conference.
She made the remarks while responding to a question on whether US sanctions against Iran and Venezuela will hit India’s oil imports from the two countries.
The external affairs minister also said that India does not make foreign policy under any pressure from any country.
Earlier this month, the US had pulled out from the landmark Iran nuclear deal of 2015 under which Tehran had agreed to stop its sensitive nuclear activities in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.
Announcing the decision, President Donald Trump had reimposed sanctions against Iran which were suspended after the nuclear deal was finalised three years back.
The US had also announced tightening sanctions against Venezuela following re-election of President Nicolas Maduro.
Iran is India’s third largest oil supplier. Venezuela is also one of the major suppliers of oil to India.
Swaraj also ruled out using cryptocurrency in oil trade with Venezuela saying the Reserve Bank of India had banned it.
Hours before she held a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif
China, Russia and several European nations have been trying to salvage the deal.
Iran had struck the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) with the US, the UK, Russia, China, France and Germany after years of negotiations.
