Block rail, roads - go to jail in Punjab
July 10, 2014 03:14 PM
Putting people to inconvenience and even causing suffering by blocking rail tracks and roads in Punjab could now have a legal complication for protesters. The state government has approved a bill under which blockade of rail and road traffic would attract punishment of up to one year in jail and even a penalty of Rs.100,000. While the Parkash Singh Badal government may be trying to contain growing incidents of lawlessness in the state in recent times, the opposition Congress is aghast at the "draconian and anti-people legislation" to put curbs on protests and demonstrations.

July 03, 2014 01:56 PM

Residents of the Sikh holy city and the Amritsar Lok Sabha constituency are now wondering whether they would be able to get the best out of these two towering political leaders. While Jaitley, after the May 16 election results and the formation of the Narendra Modi government at the centre has not dropped in to check out with the Amritsar electorate, Amarinder Singh came only last week, over a month after he was elected as a member of parliament on a thanksgiving trip.
