Desecration of Guru Granth Sahib is only Trigger:Congress

[New Delhi,Amritsar]Desecration of Guru Granth Sahib is only Trigger:Congress
Indian National Congress Says that Conflict between the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) and the Panj Pyaras+ desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib is only the trigger
Punjab is reeling under a severe crisis. The people of the once prosperous State are up in arms. The State government has resorted to firing that has led to deaths of protesters.
Bur Unfortunately Punjab is suffering from a much deeper malaise, which stems from the corruption ridden misrule of the SAD-+BJP government.
Congress Added Recently, the cotton farmers of the State were devastated when their crops were destroyed by a whitefly attack. They later found that the pesticides provided to them by the government were spurious – a multi-crore scam. No heads rolled in the government. But, in the last 45 days, 15 farmers have ended their lives.
Support prices of crops have remained stagnant despite a rise in input costs, but the SAD-BJP government has turned a blind eye to the issue.
A recent news article claimed people of Ludhiana got “rotten grains” under the State government’s Atta-Dal scheme. The grains were so bad that they were unfit to be fed even to cattle. But those who refused the rotten grains got “threats” from local leaders.
Since 2007, as many as 6,550 industrial units have been declared ‘sick’ and 18,770 units have shut down, or migrated out of Punjab. Over 75 lakh people are jobless in Punjab.

Holiday Politics Again in UP,May Declare Holiday On IronMan’sBirthAnniversary

[Lucknow,UP] itIs Holiday Politics Again in UP, May Declare Holiday On IronMan’sBirthAnniversaryTo Encash Patel Votes UP Govt May Declare Holiday On Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel’s birth anniversary. it is holiday politics again in UP But This Time Patel[Kurnis]voters in mind,After this decision, the number of official holidays in Uttar Pradesh will reach 39.
In an apparent move to woo ‘Patel’ (Kurmi) community ahead of 2017 Assembly polls, Uttar Pradesh government is likely to declare a holiday on October 31 to mark Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel’s birth anniversary.
The decision is likely to be taken by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav after Bundelkhand’s slain dacoit Dadua’s brother and former MP Bal Kumar Patel and his son, MLA from Patti (Pratapgarh) Ram Singh, met him in this regard with the request, official sources said.
“He (CM) was of the view that holiday should be declared and asked us to give our demand in writing,” Bal Kumar said.
“I want to draw your attention towards Sardar Patel whose contribution towards freedom struggle cannot be ignored. SP hasalways honoured great personalities and I request you to declare a public holiday on his birth anniversary,” SP MLA Ram Singh said in his letter to the chief minister.
The decision maybe taken by the Samajwadi Party government in view of elections for the 403-member Uttar Pradesh Assembly due in early 2017.
As Kurmi, an OBC community, which constitute nearly seven per cent of population, regards Sardar Patel as their icon, the party “feels” it would help them in wooing them in the state and they could counter BJP, which is going all out to encash Patel’s name.
“With 39 public holidays a year, there has been a 50 per cent increase in the state government’s list of public holidays in the past 10 years,”
The Samajwadi Party government had earlier declared a holiday on December 6, the death anniversary of Bhim Rao Ambedkar, which was seen as an attempt to appease Dalits.
The Akhilesh Yadav government had also declared holidays on the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Chandrashekhar (April 17), Maharana Pratap (May 9), Maharishi Kashyap and Maharishi Nishadraj Jayanti (April 5), and Hazrat Ajmeri Garib Nawaj Urs (April 26) besides others.
The SP government has also declared June 24 as public holiday in UP to mark socialist leader Karpoori Thakur’s birth anniversary.
