The public-hearing session of the UT administrator continues to lose sheen with only four of six complainants turning up for redressal of their grievances. The first complainant,Vijay Kumar Gupta sought the execution of Conveyance Deed (transfer of ownership) for his house that was allotted to him under a scheme of the Chandigarh Housing Board.
He was,however,told that until and unless he addresses building violations,the case cannot be considered further. Patil said that it is a legal matter and he will get the case examined in detail.
Another complainant,Maninder Kaur had a complaint against a sub-inspector posted in the women cell. The complainant alleged that her husband and in-laws demanded dowry,tortured her and poisoned her. In the subsequent inquiry,however,the allegation of slow poisoning could not be proved,in view of the medical record given by the complainant. To this,Pail stressed that if there is a certification that Maninder was poisoned,necessary action would be initiated.
Ajay Kumar pleaded for permission to erect an illuminated LED display screen for commercial advertisement at Neelam Cinemas,Sector-17,Chandigarh. Patil asked the concerned officials to look into the case as per rules and intimate Kumar about the possibility of his request being accepted. The last complaint was Pooja Sharma and others from Manimajra whose concern was demolition of houses of Pocket No 7,8 and 11. It was informed that individuals with cases of similar nature have knocked the doors of higher courts for justice. To some cases the decision pronounced was positive and some are still pending in courts. Keeping this in mind the concerned officials were asked to re-look into the matter and see that all are given justice.
Puppet show: Bulgarian artists take centre-stage on final day
It was all Bulgaria on the concluding day of the Chandigarh International Puppet Theater Festival on Monday. Different styles of puppetry were used by Bulgarian artist Desislava Mincheva,as a series of different roles were performed by her on the stage.
It was a very unique and innovative show,the administration should hold shows like this more frequently. I am really happy that my child got exposed to a show like this. The management was better than what I had heard happened in the previous shows,said Aarti Joshi,who came with her daughter to the show.
Mincheva said that she was visiting India for the second time and added that she loved the experience. She further compared the Indian audience to one back home. Music of both the countries is also very similar, the Bulgarian added. The show attracted a huge crowd and as a result there were not enough seats for the audience.
