In Fatehgarh Sahib last month, the chief minister had said that the proposal to declare the new national highway from Patiala to Panyali (on Ropar-Phagwara road) via Sirhind- Fatehgarh Sahib-Bassi Pathana-Morinda as Mata Gujri Marg was submitted to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI).
In his letter to Union Minister of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, Singh said that the feasibility report and detailed project report (DPR) of the road was already in the process of preparation and would soon be submitted to him.
The historic towns of Sirhind, Fatehgarh Sahib and Chamkaur Sahib, where the four Sahibzadas of the tenth Sikh Guru Gobind Singh attained martyrdom, are located on this road.
Mata Gujri, the mother of Guru Gobind Singh, is an iconic figure in the Sikh history and is remembered for her courage and supreme sacrifice.

[New Delhi]Crimes in Natl Capital Increased by 12% In 2017 :Police Confess
Crimes in the national capital increased by 12 per cent in 2017,
However, records show that crimes in the city under major heads like
murders have declined. T
he increase in motor vehicle thefts continues to be an area of concern for the police.

According to the data shared by Delhi Police,
2,23,075 cases were registered in 2017 as opposed to 1,99,110 in 2016.
The total Indian Penal Code (IPC) crimes per lakh of population during 2017 was 1,263 in comparison to 1,137 in 2016.
The police said that the increase in the number of cases registered is
due to fair registration of crimes,
online registration of FIRs pertaining to property thefts and
motor vehicle robbery and
registration of FIRs on all complaints of women.
Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik said that “socio-economic disparities” are a significant criminogenic factor, coupled with other issues.
The Delhi Top Brass said that the issues of women’s safety and the menace of street crime demanded a focused strategy.
With incidents of terror occurring frequently across the globe, anti-terror measures were also on the top of their list,
Patnaik said that their focus last year was on preventive policing rather than reactive policing.
“Beat-in-focus policing, identification of active criminals and effective surveillance on them, high-visibility of police on streets, etc, led to a reduction in heinous crimes by 23.43 per cent last year. Street crimes like robberies and snatchings also declined by 21.05 per cent,” he said.
R P Upadhyaya, special commissioner of police (crime), said that 6,057 heinous crimes were reported in 2017 as opposed to 6,057 in 2016, thereby showing a decline of 23.43 per cent.
Statistics showed a minor decline of 0.73 per cent in rape cases. Murder cases also showed a decline by 7.78 per cent and dacoities showed a decline of 20 per cent.
The police also claimed that insistence on focused investigation led to a high rate of detection of heinous cases which was 87.98 per cent in 2017 as opposed to 71.81 per cent in 2016.
A total of 60,10,772 challans were issued by the Delhi Traffic Police last year, with the police collecting Rs 94.25 crore.
The statistics also showed a minor decline of 0.9 per cent in the fatal accidents, that was attributed to the measures like suitable deployment of night checking cum patrolling parties by the traffic police, analysis of accidents, etc
