Bharat Bandh: No significant impact in Gurugram, Asha workers extend support

Though farmers in other parts of Haryana registered their protest against the passage of the agriculture Bills, no significant impact was noticed in Gurugram district. However, Asha and Anganwadi workers and members of trade unions extended their support to the ‘Bharat Bandh.

Gurugram has very few farmers and even among them, the Bharat Bandh evoked an extremely lukewarm response.

No farmers’ union appeared to oppose the agriculture Bills in the district.

Only scattered protests and demonstrations were reported from places in and around the area.

Reportedly, in Rewari, about 50 people gathered in the grain market and protested against the Bills and submitted a memorandum to the President through the Deputy Commissioner.

Meanwhile in Gurugram, Asha workers, Anganwadi workers and trade unions extended their support to the Bharat Bandh but no one from farmers’ union came forward to raise their voice against the Bills.

Some Asha and Anganwadi workers and trade unionists were seen taking out marches in support of farmers.

Asha workers and others protested in the Sadar Bazar area of the district.

“The absence of farmers against these Bills in South Haryana does not mean that they are not against them. Some people are in opposition and some are supporting the Bills,” said a farmer leader requesting anonymity.

“Actually, there is no organised union of farmers in South Haryana, due to which the farmers are not united here,” the leader said.

“Another reason is that most of the MLAs in South Haryana belong to the BJP and there is a BJP government in the state,” he said.

“There has always been Jat and non-Jat politics in Haryana, so even the people of South Haryana are not particularly opposed to the non-Jat CM government,” he added.

Apart from this, Gurugram and Faridabad in South Haryana are known as industrial districts, while Bawal in Rewari district is also an industrial area. In these three districts, a large number of farmers’ land was purchased by builders for commercial and residential purposes. So farming in these districts has been reduced.

On the other hand, farmer leader Maan Singh said that he supports these Bills, so there are no protests.

“In South Haryana the biggest problem is water, so the farmers here are doing traditional farming and do not do too much experimentation, so there is not much opposition,” Singh added.

Labourers here support the farmers.

“We are taking part in the march because being an industrial city, there are many labourers who are the sons of farmers, hence we are in support of farmers’ agitation,” said Janghu, a labourer.

Day after chaos, Delhi University’s pro-VC removed

Meanwhile, The DU Teachers’ Association condemned the series of events and termed them as “unprecedented chaos”.

Delhi University

New Delhi, Oct 22 : The drama over the appointment of the new registrar has taken an ugly turn as Delhi University’s (DU) pro-Vice Chancellor, P.C. Joshi, has been removed from his position on Thursday.

The development came a day after he cleared the appointment of a new registrar, even as Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi had appointed another person for the same position.

Joshi will be replaced by Geeta Bhatt, a member of right-wing teachers’ group, National Teachers’ Democratic Front (NDTF).

Bhatt is also a leading member of the Group of Intellectuals and Academics (GIA), which had said that the Delhi riots of February were a conspiracy of “Jihadis” and “Urban Naxals”.

Soon after her appointment, Bhatt took out an order saying that Joshi is “without any jurisdiction and lawful authority”.

The chaos at the university began when the joint-registrar’s office issued a notification naming P.C. Jha as the Director of the university’s South Campus and as interim registrar from October 21.

“He has been appointed as Director of South Campus in place of Suman Kundua with immediate effect till further orders. He will also act as Registrar, University of Delhi, as an interim arrangement, with immediate effect till further orders,” the notification said.

According to university sources, the fight is between two factions, one backed by the Vice Chancellor, who backed Jha, and Joshi, who on the same day of Jha’a appointment, sent him a letter of “illegally occupying the office”.

“In case you are not vacating the office immediately, you will be forcibly moved out of office and action will be initiated against you,” Joshi said in the letter to Jha.

Meanwhile, professors and officials at the university have called the fiasco disturbing and humiliating for the university.

“The reputation of the university is built over decades and it can be lost within no time. Only one side can be right, but here both the sides are issuing letters, showing a situation of lawlessness. Those who are in power did not care about the reputation of the university, especially during admission time,” said a professor of the university.

Meanwhile, The DU Teachers’ Association condemned the series of events and termed them as “unprecedented chaos”.

Vice Chancellor Tyagi, who is on medical leave at the moment, did not respond to the reporter’s calls and messages.

Pinarayi Vijayan

Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 23 : Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday compared Covid to a forest fire, stressing on maintaining vigilance to prevent the the disease’s spread.

“Covid is like a forest fire. Just like a forest fire… when it seems to have ended, it suddenly comes back with greater force. Covid is like that and hence there should be no relaxation of caution,” he said.

“It has also come to notice people are having an attitude that ‘let Covid strike’, but that’s dangerous because post Covid complications cannot be ruled out. One per cent of Covid patients seems to have post-Covid syndrome. Even after testing negative, 10 days quarantine should be undertaken,” Vijayan added.

His comments came as the state recorded 7,482 more coronavirus cases, while 7,593 patients tested negative.

The Chief Minister said that the state has 93,291 active cases, while 2,74,675 people have so far been cured. Meanwhile, there were 23 more deaths, taking the toll to 1,255.

He said that in the past 24 hours, 56,093 samples were tested, and it had been decided that the number of daily tests is increased.

Kerala has 2,80,926 people under observation, including 23,193 people in hospitals, while there are 618 hotspots.
