Canada lures Sangrur bizmen

Sangrur: Having faced huge financial losses in the past, many industrialists of Punjab are exploring options to shift abroad. Immigration expert Kamalpreet Khaira shared latest offers from Canada for the industry in Sangrur with local traders. "Since Punjab's industry has been on a decline for the past many years, many industrialists have started looking for options to settle abroad. Shifting abroad is not a bad idea if industrialists are getting a good offer," said Ghanshyam Kansal, president of the Sangrur District Industry Chamber.

Quarantine or earned leave?

Chandigarh: While the Punjab Government has issued clear instructions that Covid-affected employees were entitled to a quarantine leave for 30 days, the Education Department is deducting the leave out of the earned leave. An employee sent a communication to the department showing that his leave had been deducted out of the earned leave. Government guidelines during the pandemic read that "employees who cannot attend office as they have tested positive for Covid or their place of residence has become a containment or buffer zone, shall be granted a quarantine leave for a maximum of 30 days. In case the employee was still unable to attend the office, he/she will be granted ordinary leave after that".

One-upmanship game in Pathankot

Pathankot: In October last year, a video of Bhoa Congress MLA Joginder Pal had gone viral in which he could be seen lambasting Deputy Commissioner Sanyam Aggarwal and SSP Gulneet Singh Khurana. This development had irked fellow bureaucrats for the sheer audacity with which the legislator had dared to take on the officers. Last week, when the Pathankot police sealed a mining unit owed by Joginder Pal, officials were cock-a-hoop with joy. Aggarwal and Khurana chose to maintain a stoic silence but their colleagues were surely elated. Sources say the SSP had concrete information that the MLA was engaged in illegal mining following which 80 cops were deputed to conduct raids. Had the legislator not used unparliamentarily language, he probably could have been spared. However, a senior officer said there was nothing personal about the action.
