CPI Protest Against Israeli Bombing on Gaza Strip at Doraha

Sat, Aug 16, 2014 at 6:12 PM
Many CPI leaders addressed the gathering
Ludhiana: 16 August 2014: (Punjab Screen Bureau):
The communist Party of India (CPI) held a demonstration today at Doraha against the Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip. Com Kartar Singh Bowani–Distt. Secretary CPI addressing the gathering said that the decades-long impunity of the Israeli government, with the passive support of the United States, has allowed its systematic occupation and annexation of Palestinian land since 1967, illegal Israeli settlements, and the blockade of the Gaza Strip and virtual imprisonment of its population. The Israeli government is wrong in justifying its oppression of the Palestinian people as its right to self-defence in the face of Hamas' response to the state of Israel.

Dr Arun Mitra – Asstt. Secretary said that the rockets launched by Hamas represent an indiscriminate attack on the Israeli population, but it is clear that they kill very few Israelis, although they unleash fear and terror. The Israeli military assault has killed no less than 1,600 Palestinian civilians including whole families and innocent children. Israeli bombardment has also destroyed schools and hospitals. The UN head of human rights, Navi Pillay, has called such disproportionate and indiscriminate military action a war crime. Israel is following the 'Dahiya doctrine' where the deliberate and disproportionate use of force to inflict casualties and suffering on the civilian population is to generate terror and achieve the political objective of exerting pressure on Hamas, rather than a military objective. Causing such fear and terror is unequivocally illegal under customary international humanitarian law.  He demanded complete stoppage of this aggression.

Others who addressed include Com Ramesh Rattan, Com Karam Singh, Com Anod,Com Darbara Singh, Com Niranjan Singh, Com Harpal Bowani, Com Gurjit Bhamiri, Com Sukhwinder S Fauji, Com Malkit S Naularhi – Ex Sarpanch, Bibi Manjit Kaur Rampur, Com Gurdev Singh, Com Rajeev Anand, Com Sukhwinder Singh, Com Baljit Singh Thula, Com Hapreet Kaur Bhatal, Com Jaswinder Kaur, Com Kamaljit Kaur, Com Mannu Bowani.

AAP Volunteers celebrates Raksha Bandhan With PP jawans 
Ludhiana: 10 August 2014: (Punjab Screen Bureau):
File photo of 5th August 2009
Aam Aadmi Party Ludhiana Volunteers continued on the path of “Vyavastha Parivartan” as dreamed by Mr. Arvind Kejriwal. 
In a unique initiative the Aam Aadmi Party Volunteers celebrated Raksha Bandhan by tieing Raakhi on the wrists of not just those who vow to protect their sisters but those who are the protectors of all society. 
Aam Aadmi Party volunteers visited three Police Stations in the City today : Sarabha Nagar Police Station, Fountain Chowk Police Station and New Shimlapuri Police Station. AAP Lady volunteers tied Raakhis on the wrists of the police men present in the station while the lady police were encouraged to tie raakhis on the wrists of AAP male volunteers. 
The idea behind the event was that while residents of the city enjoy during each festival, the police personnel on duty do not get a chance to celebrate any festival. On each festive occasion they are on duty preventing crime and protecting the public and still carry a negative image in the minds of the people. This negative image needs to be changed and the isolation of the police personnel from society must be removed for our society to progress and be crime free. To remove the gap between the general public and the police, this initiative was undertaken so that even the lowest ranking police official feels that society cares for them and they also take part in the festivities. 
The million watt smiles on the faces of the cops as young girls tied raakhi on their wrists was worth watching and Aam Aadmi Party Ludhiana Volunteers have resolved that they will make every effort to change the perception of the public towards the police and celebrate each festival with them.
As a gift the volunteers took an assurance from the police personnel that they will continue to perform their duty with greatest dedication so that each citizen of Ludhiana feels safe and secure always.
