WILL NOT SPARE ANY POLITICIAN OR PUBLIC SERVANT FOUND COMPLICIT IN HOOCH TRAGEDY, SAYS CAPT AMARINDER

·PROMISES TO WIPE OUT LIQUOR MAFIA, ASKS OPPOSITION TO STOP PLAYING DIRTY POLITICS OVER INNOCENT LIVES LOST IN TRAGEDY

Chandigarh, August 4: Asserting that he will finish the liquor mafia in the state, Punjab Chief Minister, Captain Amarinder Singh, on Tuesday said no one, whether a politician or a public servant, will be spared if found complicit in the hooch deaths.

The Chief Minister said nobody will be allowed to get away with killing people with the poison called spurious liquor. He had put the entire force of the Punjab Police to crack down on the mafia, said Captain Amarinder.

Some unscrupulous elements took advantage of the police focus on battling the Covid pandemic to satiate their greed at the cost of the lives of Punjabis, said the Chief Minister. While the state government was busy battling Covid, which has claimed 449 lives in the state so far, the liquor mafia seized the opportunity to play with the lives of our people, he added.

This is sheer murder and the killers will not get away with it, Captain Amarinder said, referring to the death of 111 people (83 from Tarn Taran, 15 from Amritsar and 13 from Batala) due to the spurious liquor. “They knew this could kill and yet they supplied/sold the poison to innocent people. They deserve no mercy,” said Captain Amarinder, adding that his government stands with the families of the deceased in their hour of grief and he will leave no stone unturned to ensure justice for them.

Castigating the opposition for exploiting the tragedy for their petty political interests, the Chief Minister said this is not the time to play politics but to stand by the government in its efforts to eliminate the mafia that is indulging in such acts. He flayed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over its dharnas against the hooch tragedy, and asked how this would help in battling the mafia or supporting the bereaved families.

The Chief Minister pointed out that such tragedies have been taking place through the years across states, under different political dispensations. Mafias and criminals do not have any political affiliation, their only interest is to earn money by hook or by crook, he said, noting that 2019 had seen three hooch tragedies, all in the BJP-ruled states of Assam, UP and Uttarakhand, claiming 168, 97 and 30 lives. In 2016, 16 people had died in Janata Dal ruled Bihar while in 2015, BJP-led Maharashtra had lost 102 lives to hooch in Mumbai and under the Trinamool Congress rule in West Bengal, as many as 167 people had similarly died due to consumption of spurious liquor.

Almost every year, India sees some or the other hooch tragedy, which has nothing to do with who is in power in the affected state, said Captain Amarinder, urging the opposition parties to stop playing politics over the lives of innocent Punjabis. “Our people don’t care which party is ruling the state, all they want is justice for their loved ones, who fell victim to the greed of the liquor mafia,” he said, pointing out that Punjab had also witnessed similar tragedies under the SAD-BJP regime.

The Chief Minister urged the opposition to rise, for once, above their petty political interests, to fight for justice for the people.

Harsimrat Badal's signature on anti-farmers ordnance exposes real face of Badals- Brinder Dhillon

-500 Dharnas keeping Covid guidelines in mind in 117 assemblies with only 5 people at each Dharna

- What sacrifice would you make to stop the ordinance? Dhillon asks Sukhbir Badal

Chandigarh, August 4, 2020-Opposing the anti-farmer ordinance of Narendra Modi led BJP-SAD govt, the the president of Punjab Youth Congress Brinder Singh Dhillon along with his party office bearers on Tuesday staged a dharna in front of Punjab Mandi Board office at Mohali.

Addressing the media at dharna venue, Dhillon said "Narendra Modi led govt is hell bent on ruining the farming sector of country". He said that the representatives of Punjab Youth Congres have staged dharnas at more than 500 places throughout state today. He informed that keeping the Covid guidelines in mind only 5 people were present at each place across 117 constituencies of Punjab.

The existing structure of mandi board will be defunct and the development work or revenue generation by Punjab mandi board will stop ,hindering the progress of Punjab.

The procurement by govt agencies will be limited to only PDS distribution limiting the punjab qouta to 8.5 lakh metric tonnes from 1 crore 27 lakh metric tone being procured presently by central goverment.

"Already telecom sector, coal and petroleum sector has been monopolized leading to major companies exiting or being taken over creating a monopoly for two- three corporate houses. If the same is done in farming sector ,farmer will be reduced to bonded labour's on there own land.

This will be the death of punjab economy as well as farmer " stated by the president of punjab youth congress

Attacking Shiromani Akali Dal, Dhillon quipped that while Harsimrat Badal has given her nod by signing the ordinance while her husband Sukhbir Badal is trying to gain the sympathy of farmers by saying that SAD will not step back from sacrificing anything to stop it. "Just clarify what sacrifice would you made to oppose the ordinance? You have befooled the people of Punjab with this tactics for long but it would not work anymore." Said Dhillon while addressing Sukhbir Badal.

Dhillon charged the central government of formulating policies to suppress the farming sector. He said the three ordinances issued by the government were against the interests of small and marginal farmers and must be taken back. He said the farming community has serious apprehension that the minimum support price mechanism and assured marketing system may be disbanded by the Centre to benefit the corporate sector. “Since the formation of Modi govt. at centre the government related institutions are being dismantled and the recent ordinance is another effort to ruin the strong mandi system. The basic outcome of green revaluation was formation of Mandi system through small traders and now the Modi govt. is going to replace it with big houses that is not at all good for marginal farmers.” Dhillon said.

Dhillon said that the anti farmer policies of SAD-BJP have forced the farmers of the state to commit suicide and now by making these disastrous changes in farm sector the farm sector will further be ruined. He asked Harsimrat Badal to show what she has done to save the farmers of state while being minister in the centre. He warned to gherao residence of Harsimrat Badal and Narendra Modi if the anti-farmer ordinance is not called back.

PUNJAB POLICE NABS LUDHIANA-BASED BUSINESSMEN RESPONSIBLE FOR SALE OF 3 METHANOL DRUMS THAT LED TO 111 HOOCH DEATHS

ARRESTS IN CASE TOTAL 40, MORE LIKELY AS COPS TRACK HIS LEADS TO DELHI & OTHER PLACES IN PUNJAB

ANOTHER 184 ARRESTS IN 238 CASES AS POLICE LAUNCH STATE-WIDE CRACKDOWN AGAINST ILLICIT/SPURIOUS LIQUOR

Chandigarh, August 4-In a major breakthrough in the hooch tragedy case, Punjab Police has arrested the Ludhiana-based Paint Store owner, allegedly responsible for triggering the chain of events that ultimately resulted in the death of 111 persons across three districts.

Rajeev Joshi, owner of Ludhiana Paint Store, was nabbed late on Monday evening, according to DGP Dinkar Gupta, who said the accused had disclosed that he supplied the three drums of methanol (methyl alcohol), which were used to make the spurious methanol based alcohol, to Prabhdeep Singh, nephew of Ravinder Anand of Moga who is further linked with Avtar Singh. The police is tracking the leads given by Joshi, who was reportedly procuring various types of alcohol and spirits from various places in Punjab and Delhi.

With the arrest of Joshi and two other key players in the entire tragic saga, the number of arrests in the case has gone up to 40 – 21 from Tarn Taran, 10 from Amritsar-Rural and 9 from Batala. The arrests followed 563 raids conducted in the three districts since July 31, under five FIRs registered in the case (one in Batala, 2 in Amritsar-R and 2 in Tarn Taran).

The DGP said one absconding accused, identified as Dharminder of Hathi Gate, Batala, was arrested on Tuesday in the case related to the 13 deaths in Batala. The DGP said 50 litres of alcohol was seized from him.

In addition, acting on the directives of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder, the State Police had launched a major state-wide crackdown on spurious liquor in the past 24 hours, leading to the arrest of 184 persons in 238 cases. A total of 5943 Ltrs of Illicit liquor, 1332 Ltrs of licit liquor and 32470 kgs of Lahan has been recovered, along with 8 working stills, in these state-wide raids conducted by Districts/Commissionerates at various suspicious places. The raids, personally supervised by senior officers, led to the arrest of the 184 accused involved sale/ procurement/ manufacturing of illicit liquor. The liquor and lahan seizures were reported from in and around Sutlej river in Ludhiana Police Commissionerate, some areas of Amritsar (Rural), Tarn Taran District, as well as Anandpur Sahib and Nurpur Bedi areas, said the DGP.

According to the DGP, the arrest of Joshi and other criminals, has led the police to identify some more key people involved in the manufacture and distribution of spurious liquor, including the supply chain of methanol (methyl alcohol), which led to the deaths in Tarn Taran, Amritsar & Batala. The three drums supplied by him to Ravinder and Avtar were further sold to Satnam Singh r/o Pandori Gola village, Tarn Taran. Satnam & his family members then supplied the methanol based illicit liquor to around a dozen distributors in the three districts. Enquiries are also being made from Delhi and other places regarding the possible source of methanol supplied by Rajiv Joshi.

With Satnam’s arrest, the Tarn Taran module of the mafia involved in his case had been busted, said the DGP, adding that atleast five more suspects in the district have been identified and raids were being conducted to nab them. The Batala module had been smashed with the arrest of Darshana and Triveni, who were procuring liquor from Gobinder Singh @ Gobinda of Jandiala who was further linked up with Satnam Singh in the illicit liquor supply chain. The key accused in Amritsar Rural, including Balwinder Kaur, was already under arrest. She had also procured the spurious alcohol from Gobinda.

Chemical examination of the drum residues and 70 litres of alcohol packed in pouches recovered from a ditch in Pandori Gola, at the instance of Satnam Singh, is being got done through the Excise Department.

Incidentally, methanol or methyl alcohol poisoning has been behind most of the hooch tragedies in India, including the recent one in Assam (168 deaths), UP (97 deaths) and Uttarakhand (30 deaths) in February 2020. Similar unfortunate hooch tragedies had earlier caused 167 deaths in Mumbai in June 2015 and in Bihar in August 2016. Currently, methanol is easily available in the market, and has many industrial applications including the manufacture of varnishes among other products.

It is heartening to see that not only the reach has widened but the outcome has become more measureable with the help of technology.”
