“This means any such random search,Written by Express News Service | Published: April 24Dr Pradip Awate, The two senior students were practising for the sports day. Its a very unfortunate incident We have ordered an inquiry into the incident Since the PT teacher failed to fulfil his responsibilitywe have terminated his services with immediate effect?

Director, A record of this must be maintained. In casesome tenants/PGs are staying with the old peoplethen these people have to be verifiedand should become guardians of their land lords The senior citizens association can monitor thiswho should enlarge their scope by encompassing the welfare of maximum old people of the Tricity Col R D Singh (retd)AMBALA CANTT Move with the times The hotel or party organiser may have violated the law in which female bartenders were allowed to serve liquorbut this episode should highlight the antiquated laws which govern us When women today are freely going to pubs and bars to consume liquorwhy the restriction on their serving or selling alcohol We call ourselves as a nation of equal opportunities The legislators should suitably amend these old laws framed during colonial times The Supreme Court has recently also set aside the ban on bar dancers in Mumbai Jatinder SinghPANCHKULA In the name of welfare The potable water supply in Haryana is yet another example of the autocraticfatal and divisive behavior of the state towards the consumer It has given a fatal blow to the budget of the consumers who have been left no choice but to buy water from the stateto pay the bills at exorbitant rateswith a rider to have the working meter duly installedfailing which the rate is again multiplied The beauty of the system is that while the previous system to charge according to the volumetric use of water has been practically scrappedthe government pats itself on the back for water conservation On the other handthe free water supply along with the installation of water tanks to the vote banks also speaks volumes of the discrimination towards the tax-payer The ruleswhile prohibit the installation of electric pumpwe can find it practically installed at every household of the officials of the the department who deal with the water supply It seems that whatever has systematically been taken over by the state is causing havoc to its usersand that too in the name of public welfare state Jai Prakash Gupta (Dr)AMBALA CANTT Poor traffic management A lot of minor accidents are occurring on the Sector 43/44 crossing due to rash driving All commuters seem to be in a great hurry to cross or overtake while negotiating this crossingcreating a dangerous situation The small roundabout at the crossing is not fit to take the heavy traffic density for the whole dayespecially during peak hours I am of the opinion that this roundabout needs to be removed and traffic lights provided like Sectors 41-40 crossing for proper management It is worth noting that all along V3 road – from Mohali to press chowk – traffic lights have been provided except this one An early execution will ease the traffic movement at this junction Sateesh DadwalCHANDIGARH Colleges need discipline Appalling press picturesshowing leaflet litershuge number of police flag marching and rowdy campaigningwhich were published during student election in city colleges and universityis a sad aspersion on our current education system The way things are movingthe time does not seem too far when during such elections one would see military tanks roaring in educational campuses to maintain disciplinewhich once was a well respectedby both student community and society at largeduty of teachers BalvinderCHANDIGARH Fight for equal rights On September 5the Haryana government nominated 30 MLAs/MPs who represent respective Assembly/Parliamentary constituencies as members of recently constituted seven new municipal corporations (MCs) in the state including Panchkula and Ambala Prior to the constitution of the MCs in these cities/towns municipal councils were existing herewhich were being governed under provisions of Haryana Municipal Act 1973 Nowafter upgradation to level of MCsthe statute governing them would be Haryana Municipal Corporation Act1994 Although the composition of both these municipal bodies is quite similarbut as far as voting rights enjoyed by the elected MPs/MLAs who represent such municipal area is concerned there is an inconsistency between the two laws Whereas the Municipal Act1973 clearly prescribes that only nominated members/councillors would not be having voting rightsthe Municipal Corporation Act1994 debars such rights for elected MPs/MLAs too Pertinent to mention here that even proviso to Article 243(2)(a) of our Constitution only debars voting rights for nominated members in the meetings of Municipalities Although it is within the competence of state governments to grant or not grant such voting rights to MPs/MLAs by making due provisions in state municipal statute but there ought to be a consistency between the two above referred laws Either both 1973 and 1994 Acts should provide for voting rights to MPs/MLAs or neither should have such provision One wonders how this grave anomaly has till now not come to the notice of the authorities concerned Is it an inadvertent omission or well-intended one Hemant KumarAMBALA CITY Backup plans needed The City Beautifuleven though is known for its well-planned architecture and civic amenitiesthe residents of Chandigarh and Mohali had to suffer a major water crisis for near about 15 days Thisdue to faults at the Kajauli Water Worksthe life line of water supply to around 14 lakh people in both the areas The authorities responsible for the maintenance of the pipelines tried to play it down by terming it a minor problemwhereas the issue certainly demands an immediate attention The UT Administration and the department of Punjab water supply and sanitation are responsible for the maintenance of the pipelines The Kajauli pumping station from where Chandigarh receives water is located in Punjab The broken pipelines are being repaired under the supervision of the Punjab government and the municipal corporation only pays the annual bill for the work The two pipelines broken in Mankheri village also come under Punjab territory It is not out of place to mention herewhy the officials concerned are not bothered to check leakages at other points to avoid any such problem in the future Moreoverthe present crises had exposed the functioning of the MC in the citywhere there was no back up and no alternative was made available to the residents There is no planning being done The requirements have not been taken care HoweverChandigarh Administration should have water reserves ofat least 50 per cent of the total supply for immediate relief to the locals Puran KantCHANDIGARH For all the latest Chandigarh News download shlf1314n Express App More
