State Elections in punjab

The election code of conduct has came into effect in Punjab immediately after announcement of elections to state assembly. About 1.75 crore voters of Punjab would be eligible to cast their vote to elect a new government in Punjab on January 30,2012.

The present term of SAD-BJP government in Punjab ends on February 16, however it would continue till March 4 till the results of elections are announced.

Chief Electoral Officer Punjab Kusumjit Sidhu said that that after the Final Voter List is to be published throughout the State on 2nd January, 2012, those eligible persons whose name is not present in the voter list will be entitled to get themselves entered as voter after the publication.

EC will set up teams across the State which will ensure random checking of vehicles and remedial action in case of complaints pertaining to expenditure. The teams will be authorized to search the vehicles for cash, liquor or drugs.

Passenger as well as Goods vehicles will be liable to be searched. In case any cash/jewellery of value above Rs. 1 Lakh is found and the person is unable to explain it’s source, it is liable to be seized and handed over to the Income Tax authorities. Banks have also been instructed to report all suspicious cash transactions above Rs.1 Lakh from any account, and these shall be monitored by the Election Department as well as the Income Tax Department. Ec will also keep a check on sale of liquor as the liquor trade in Punjab is mostly controlled by ruling party politicians.

Meanwhile leaders of various parties have welcomed the announcement of election dates.Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal said the SAD-BJP alliance is poised for a massive landslide victory.Badal said the SAD-BJP alliance is set to go past its figure of the 1997 Assembly elections when the two parties had won 67 seats.

"The negative Congress campaign of mudslinging will backfire on them. People want to know what their leaders have done for them and what they will do in future. There is no place for gutter propaganda which the Congress was hoping to rely on," he said.

Meanwhile, Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh also welcomed the announcement of elections in Punjab.

ayodhya verdict is out

The Supreme Court acted wisely on Tuesday in dismissing the plea to defer the verdict in the 60-year-old Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit by the Allahabad High Court. The terse dismissal by the three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia of former bureaucrat Ramesh Chandra Tripathi’s deferral plea was interpreted by legal experts as a clear indication by the country’s highest court that the judicial process should not be unnecessarily interfered with for extraneous reasons. With all parties to the dispute making it clear that nothing short of a miracle can bring about an out-of-court settlement, there is surely no logic to delaying the verdict further by a few weeks or even months. Such a step would only create unnecessary suspense and acrimony and worsen the mood of the disputants.

Political parties, ranging from the Congress to the CPI(M) and the BJP, and organisations ranging from the RSS to the Hindu Mahasabha and the Sunni Waqf Board have welcomed the decision. It appears nobody wants any further prolonging of this vexed dispute. The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court is now expected to deliver the verdict on Thursday, September 30, at 3.30 pm. While the Centre has asked all states to be on alert and has deployed extra forces in likely trouble spots, including an unprecedented number of police and paramilitary personnel in Uttar Pradesh, the nation by and large does not seem to expect trouble. The title suit (or property dispute) started in 1950 after idols of Lord Ram were placed in the disputed structure and has dragged on for nearly 60 years. Whichever way the verdict goes, it will surely be challenged in the higher courts. The Sangh Parivar outfits have been particularly circumspect, and have stressed the need to maintain peace rather than urge big celebrations in case of a possible triumph or defiance in case of a legal setback. Even the Gujarat Chief Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, not known to be a peacenik, has appealed for calm. Similar appeals for restraint and respect for the law have also come from the Muslim leadership. So far, so good.

It may be that the Sangh Parivar has finally realised that Ayodhya will no longer generate the enthusiasm it once did, and that harping on it could even prove counterproductive, politically. India has moved ahead, and has hopefully left far behind the vitriolic ambience of communal strife seen in the early 1990s. It is now looking more to the future than towards the past. Thankfully, too, most political parties appear to have realised this and are acting in a more responsible manner. If the parties to the dispute, the political establishment and the country as a whole can accept Thursday’s high court verdict, whichever way it goes, in a calm and clear-headed manner and not let emotions run amok, then India will give the clearest signal yet that it is coming of age as a mature democracy capable of handling its problems in a reasonable manner. One can only hope this can also create the right atmosphere for an eventual solution to the Ayodhya tangle!

We've seen so much of the RGV stuff about " Jai Maharashtra" and the style. plus, talk about 'judwa' movies .. There are things which might make you feel there's something familiar what Kaminey offers. NOT.

Well, attempting a dark comedy is difficult, especially about mafia (that too in the settings of maharashtra). The movie is a dark comedy, with an adventurous plot and an action setting. The movie almost achieves what it wants to. its brilliant in execution, with some freelance direction and good screenplay. the story revolves around parallel tracks of brothers wanting to live their own lives, but they're bound to collide. The storytelling warps in the movie where we witness a normal movie and then suddenly so much happens that you fee like rewinding back. The pace is varying and there is something to keep you edged on your seat. And the final scene comes similar to "lock, stock and 2 smoking barrels", in an Indian environment, really perfect, spotless direction.

The direction just in-phase with the contemporary age of experimental cinema. we see perfect lighting for the scenes and low shots in the movies. the songs are nice, too. the movie in whole is a great watch for people who have the taste of seeing action or adventure scripts. A nice movie, watch it.

Shahid's acting is good, limited in his roles but very methodical. priyanka tries a kareena of JWM (or the asin of Ghajini, for that matter) and plays it smoothly. However, editing the viewer with a lost feeling sometimes. There are certain potholes scattered throughout the movie, which could have either explained or avoided, at least. and yes, the movie seems a little predictable sometimes, but its maximum criticism it deserves. go on experimenting Bollywood ! o ya, n i really wonder why it got A certificate .. there is nothing A about it..
