No to development, Yes to politics!

Ludhiana, July 31, 2017 - The cancellation of meeting of the finance and contracts committee of the Municipal Corporation earlier this week was the outcome of squabble between Congress party – the ruling party in the state and SAD-BJP combine – which rules the MC. The politics was given precedence over development clearly shows the petty mindset of the politicians. Once again, they have shown that rather than being committed to the welfare of the people, they are more keen to pursue their political agenda. Feeling cheated over the indifference of the government as well as the civic administration towards delivery of civic services and providing basic urban infrastructure in the so called ‘smart city’, a city resident said, when it comes to wooing the public, the politicians make big promise but they invariably falter when it comes to living up to their commitments.

Quick-witted advice

While encouraging the students at Dr Kalam Model United Nations at BCM Arya Model School, Shastri Nagar, ADC (D) Surabhi Malik, was suggesting them to retain the attitude of learning continuously even after they pass out from school and college, the power went out and it became dark in the auditorium. She immediately, made use of the occasion, to say that if they don’t have this mindset of learning, their future will be plunged into darkness, like this. The students were amused and applauded her for her quick-witted remark and advice.
