Due to Arvind Kejriwal being in jail, many works in Delhi came to a halt.

Due to Arvind Kejriwal being in jail, many works in Delhi came to a halt. Even after a rebuke from the High Court, Kejriwal is not resigning from the post of Chief Minister.

Patiala, 27 AprilIn Delhi schools, students do not get books. The High Court has strongly reprimanded the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal. The court has also said that by not resigning, Kejriwal has put his personal interests above the national interest.

On Saturday, a BJP candidate and MP from Patiala Lok Sabha Maharani Preneet Kaur told the media. He said that the Delhi High Court last Friday strongly reprimanded Arvind Kejriwal for not resigning from the post of Chief Minister. Court even asserted during the petition hearing that the Delhi government, under the leadership of the AAP party, solely seeks power. Arvind Kejriwal, who exaggerates the level of education in Delhi, is deliberately unaware of the fact that children are not getting books today. If Kejriwal was concerned about children’s education, he would have given priority to their future, resigned from his post, and paid homage to Baba Sahib. This action would have resulted in a greater level of respect for the Constitution crafted by Ambederji.MP Maharani Preneet Kaur, speaking to the media, said that the MCD Commissioner had argued in court that the non-formation of local committees was a major reason for the non-distribution of notebooks, stationery items, uniforms, and school bags.

Only the committees have the power and authority to award contracts worth more than Rs 5 crore, and the Chief Minister, who is currently in jail, is the committee chairman. Without the chairman, committees cannot take any decisions as per law. Therefore, children currently lack access to books, stationery, and school bags.

Taking aim at the Aam Aadmi Party, MP Preneet Kaur said that the AAP minister, who asserted that Delhi’s education structure has reached a world-class level, is prepared to provide books and other essential items to children because of his power-hungry nature. Are not. Today, the lure of power has become bigger than education in the eyes of AAP leadership.

Monica Sharma intimated the corporation against the fisherman.

Monica Sharma said that Fishermen did not follow the rules of food safety protocols. She said that when local residents complained, the fisherman was not properly following the rules, and it was very difficult due to the bad smell and health hazards. The main reason was that he was standing near the temple of Shiva. And it was considered disrespectful to be selling fish in that location.

She also complained that she peacefully told him to move his stand, but he did not take it seriously and continued to operate in the same location, disregarding the concerns of the community. Monica emphasised the importance of respecting cultural and religious sensitivities while conducting business in the area. This led to informing the corporation about the issue, as it was affecting the overall harmony of the community. Monica suggested finding a more suitable location for the fish vendor to operate his business to avoid further conflicts.

So the corporation took the action of relocating the fish vendor to a different area that was more appropriate for his business, ensuring that cultural and religious sensitivities were respected and community harmony was maintained. She also said that at 24 No. Phatak, the community doesn’t have any problem with vegetables and other non-meat products being sold.

Kultar Singh Sandhwan-Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker expressed sympathy for the injured farmers.

Patiala, February 15: Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker Kultar Singh Sandhawan has termed the inhumane torture of farmers protesting for their democratic demands and oppression against food donors a crime against the country. Speaker Sandhavan had arrived today to check the mood of the farmers admitted for treatment at the Government Rajindra Hospital; before that, he also inquired about the condition of the farmers at the Civil Hospital Rajpura. He also got feedback about the treatment of farmers in government hospitals, on which he expressed satisfaction. MLA Neena Mittal, Gurlal Ghanour, Kulwant Singh Pandori, and Deputy Commissioner Shaukat Ahmed Pari were also present with him on this occasion.

Speaking informally with the media on this occasion, Speaker Sandhawan said that during this peaceful protest, the injured farmers, including journalists and other persons, were being treated free of charge on the instructions of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann. He said that the Chief Minister has also made it clear that the demands of the farmers are absolutely reasonable, and the centre should listen to them with a clear heart and resolve them immediately. The central and Haryana governments should also immediately stop the oppression of the farmers in Punjab. Speaker Kultar Singh Sandhwan said that blocking roads does not come under any law, and while nails and sharp arrows are not even on the borders of the country, oppression of farmers and food donors is a crime against the country because the country means farmers.

Speaker Sandhavan said that the farmer made a valuable contribution in the struggle for the freedom of the country, and his children are guarding the country’s borders and the farmer is filling the country’s food reserves. He said that bullets and shells are fired on enemies, but by doing this on the farmers, the BJP-led Central and Haryana governments are inhumanely torturing the farmers. Kultar Singh Sandhwan, referring to the words of the late Ram Manohar Lohia, ‘If the roads are calm, then the parliament will be uncontrollable’, said that the BJP government is protecting those people, whose narcotics were found in tonnes from the port.

Taking the Haryana government by the hand, he said that democracy is being killed by oppressing the farmers who are going to Delhi in a peaceful manner, for which the BJP will have to bear the consequences, and the people will surely give their answer in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. He said that the farmers’ fight is the country’s fight, and Punjabis have even climbed the gallows for the country. The speaker said that by ignoring the 65 percent of farmers in the country’s agriculture sector, which provides the highest employment, the central government, acting on the cues of a few corporate houses, is refusing to accept the earlier demands. He said that the culprits of the Lakhimpur Khiri incident should be given severe punishment, and ointment should be applied to the wounds of the farmers.

Meanwhile, SDM of Rajpura. Jasleen Kaur Bhullar, Director, Principal, Dr. Medical College. Dr. Rajan Singla, Medical Superintendent. Harnam Singh Rekhi, Dr. Vinod Dangwal, Dr. Deepali, Harshpal Rahul, Honey Luthra, and other dignitaries were also present.*Photo Caption: Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker Kultar Singh Sandhwan knows the condition of farmers at Rajindra Hospital.
