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

By Tricitynews Reporter
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,he has 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 Tricitynews Reporter
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 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 Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 30th August:-FC Goa has confirmed the re-signing of central defenders, Gregory Arnolin and Luciano Sobrosa and striker Rafael Coelho for the third season of the Hero Indian Super League. Gregory has been the mainstay in FC Goa's defence from the first season. The defender is blessed with astute physical prowess and the ability to read the game well. In partnership with World Cup winning defender, Lucio, he was one of the major reasons the team had a successful run to the finals of the second edition. Gregory is also a potential goal threat for his side especially at set pieces, having netted twice in the first season and once in the second season with powerful headers.
The Martinique International endeared himself to the fan base with brilliant displays on the pitch and will be looking forward to going one step further in the third season after finishing up with runners up medal in the second season.
He said that he is very happy to sign with FC Goa again. He has been at this club from the first season and we have made it to the semi-finals and then the finals. This year he hopes to be able to win the ISL with FC Goa for the fans. He will give his best so that FC Goa can be champions of the ISL.
Brazilian defender Luciano Sobrosa was an able understudy to both Gregory and Lucio in the second season. He made seven solid appearances for Zico's team and impressed the legendary coach during this stint. The 37 year old has been a veteran in the Indian football circuit with stints at various Indian clubs like Salgaocar, Sporting Goa and most recently, Mohun Bagan.
Coelho was signed mid-season last year after an injury to striker Victor Simoes ruled him out for the season. He was an instant hit with the fans with his tireless work ethic on the pitch. His constant threat in the box was a huge boost to the team in their run to the finals of the tournament.
