Retd Supdt Of Punjab Police Gurbax Singh Joins Punjab Lok Hit Abhiyan

By 121 News

Chandigarh 31st August:-  Jagmeet Singh Brar Convenor Punjab Lok Hit Abiyian addressing a press conference here at Ferozpur while joining former senior police officer Gurbax Singh and many Sarpanches from the district joined the Lok Hit Abhiyan started by Jagmeet Singh Brar.

Gurbax Singh said that his colleagues and he has been deeply impressed by the policies of  Jagmeet Singh Brar and by his commitment to fight for the real issues of Punjab by rising above personal interest and we commit ourselves to the demand for farmer loan waivers and ordinance to stop suicides.

Jagmeet Singh Brar expressed anguish at the attitude of the Punjab & Central governments on the matter of farmer suicides in Punjab.He said that there are 5-6 suicides in Punjab everyday, land & homes are taken away and poor farmers are pushed to suicide & drugs and if this continues even militancy may return to Punjab.

Blaming the loan recovery policies of banks and private lenders he said that at least, government banks should show mercy to these poor families, they are publicly humiliated and death is the only option left for them, I have met dozens of suicide victim families – they die when you kill their hope.

He added that our main agenda is that the NDA/Akali Govt must bring an Ordinance immediately to stop banks and lenders from taking properties of poor farmers – this must be done immediately till a permanent solution is finalised. If the NDA Govt can make the Land Acquisition Ordinance again and again to give land to Industrialists then why cant they make a ordinance ONCE to save farmers from suicide, if more than 100,000 Cr loans of the rich can be waived then why not for farmers ?

He said that Badal has no right to call himself 'Panth Ratan' or 'Kisana Da Rakha' if he cannot get PM Modi to give this Ordinance.  Harsimrat Badal must resign if she can't bring this in the Cabinet.

Attacking Capt Amarinder Singh he said that Capt says he will do this in 2017, he will do that 2017, wait till 2017. Punjab is on a ventilator today. Will Capt. Support this demand for an ordinance or will he again betray Punjab like on CBI probe for drugs? He is a MP, Deputy Leader of the Opposition – will he atleast go to Parliament and raise the issue?

Team of Punjabi Film ‘Toofan Singh’ blames Censor Board for Not Issuing Certificate

By 121 News

Chandigarh 30th August:- The team of Punjabi film 'Toofan Singh' held a press conference here today and raised many questions on the activities of the Censor Board. The team blamed the board for not issuing any certificate to the film without any solid reason. The producer of the film Jarnail Singh, director Baghel Singh, main lead Ranjit Bawa, Bollywood actor Yashpal Sharma, Sardar Sohi and Suneeta Dhir were all present here.

Co-producer and director of the film said that the film is based on the life of Bhai Jugraj Singh aka Toofan Singh. According to him, the film has been made by producer Dilbagh Singh under the banner of Royal Cine Arts has nothing to do with any particular religion or community. Bhai Jugraj Singh was a warrior who fought with anti-social elements and freed the society from many evils. This film doesn't pin-point on any religion or individual's feelings. The Censor Board is not issuing any certificate and has no reason for that.

The team of the film told that a five-member committee of the CBFC watched the film initially out of which three members denied issuing the certificate and hence recommended the film to the Chairman and higher authorities. After watching the film, the Chairman and higher level officials didn't take any decision on the certification. The film was later sent to the Tribunal from where the final decision is awaited.

 Lead actor of the film Ranjit Bawa said that he worked very hard for this character. There is nothing in the film that would hurt anyone's feelings. CBFC is just supposed to issue the certificate and rest of the decision should be in audiences' hands.

 Yashpal Sharma also condemned the poor attitude of the board and said that many social realities don't reach the masses because of such decisions. Sardar Sohi said that such activities are nothing but a fraud with the art. In the end the whole team said in one tone that they will fight every battle to get the film released.

By 121 News

Chandigarh 30th August:- As many as 60 members of the District Bar Association, Panchkula attended a Max Hospital health session on 'preventing heart attacks: is it a choice anymore ' at Bar room of Distt Bar Association , Sector 1 here today.

Addressing members, Dr Amit Gupta, sr consultant, cardiology at Max Hospital Mohali said that lawyers and advocates are subject to the tremendous workload. Quite often conflict and hostility causes a toll on their mental and physical health.  Because of their hectic schedules and sedentary lifestyles, lawyers have been seen to suffer from stress, anxiety, fatigue and depression which are a dangerous risk factor for heart disease, as high blood pressure or even smoking.

 Dr. Amit Gupta further said that it is important to recognize heart symptoms early on and to take corrective action on time. Many patients do not have chest pain, rather they have burning in chest which usually is mistaken as  gas problem or dyspepsia and keep on taking antacids . Sometimes cardiac problem can present only as breathlessness, sweating, jaw or back pain or shoulder pain and sometimes rarely as syncope or extreme weakness.

In such a situation going to the nearest doctor and getting a simple ECG at times can be lifesaving. More over it's advisable to be always ready for an emergency plan, pointed out Dr Gupta.

While cautioning young lawyers especially, Dr Amit Gupta said that latest statistics suggest that in India, there are roughly 30 million heart patients and two lakh surgeries are being performed every year. Nearly 2.4 million Indians die due to heart disease every year. Over 50 percent of patients suffering from heart attack die just because they are unable to reach the hospital in time.

Dr Amit Gupta  added that as a vulnerable society ,we need to stand up together to make healthy life style choices in order to prevent us from getting the disease ,rather than going to hospitals seeking options for its treatment.
