SIT TO PROBE RAPE ANCIDENT: The Haryana Finance Minister, Capt. Abhimanyu, has strongly condemned the incident of rape of six-year old girl in Uklana as a huge embarrassment to the humanity and said that a Special Investigation Team (SIT) would investigate the case to ensure that justice is provided to the victim at any cost.
            Interacting with media persons in Hisar today, Capt Abhimanyu said that taking cognizance of the incident, the Chief Minister, Mr. Manohar Lal, had directed that the case be investigated by a SIT.
         Asked about the campaign launched by the INLD on toll tax, the minister said when in opposition, INLD leaders mislead people by giving irresponsible statements on providing 24-hour power supply and free electricity. They should indulge in responsible politics. If they feel that law is being violated in case of toll or any other issue, they could get it resolved legally. The people of the state have come to understand the politics of INLD very well and have dismissed the party, he added.
          Capt Abhimanyu said the Chief Minister had already ended toll on about 30 roads in the state. The work on laying the web of road network in the country, initiated by the former Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, is being carried forward rapidly.
          Earlier while redressing the grievances of people, the minister directed the District Revenue Officer, Mr. Rajender Singh, to suspend such patwaris as caused unnecessary delay in works like registration of mutation (intkal) in the district. Taking a tough stand against officers and employees causing unnecessary delay in the execution of works, he said that negligence in work generated fear of corruption which would not be tolerated at any cost. As many as 58 complaints were taken up and Capt Abhimanyu directed the officers concerned to redress them at the earliest.
          Later, the Minister held a meeting with district officers and sought information about the projects which were lying pending at the headquarters in Chandigarh.

          On the basis of report, an FIR has been registered against the hospital under Section 304 (2) of Indian Penal Code (IPC) in Sushant Lok Police Station. The other criminal action against the hospital is being taken under the Epidemic Diseases Act, he added.
          The Deputy Commissioner, Gurugram, Mr. Vinay Pratap Singh, said instructions had been issued to all hospitals in Gurugram that in case of any case pertaining to dengue or swine flu, the hospital would immediately inform the Health Department, but Fortis Hospital did not inform the department about the said dengue case. For this negligence, the Health Department would get a case registered against the hospital under Section 188 of the IPC.
          The spokesman said besides these two criminal inquiries, civil action on three counts was also being taken against the Fortis Hospital. The Drug Controller Department has issued notice to the pharmacy running in the hospital for various shortcomings found and a reply is awaited. The State Drug Controller would take decision on the reply and license of the pharmacy may be suspended under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1945, or may be cancelled. 
          Similarly, on the basis of the report of the investigation committee, notice has also been issued to the blood bank of the hospital for which 15 days have been given to file a reply.

Khallar hails media; asks it to frame its own code of conduct

Hailing media as the fourth and an important pillar of democracy, the Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal Khattar, has said that as the government could not interfere in   their right to free expression enshrined in our Constitution, the media should frame its own code of conduct to ensure that whatever media persons wrote or telecast, is in the interest of the society and the nation.
         Mr Manohar Lal was speaking as Chief Guest at the concluding session of the two-day national meet of the Confederation of Newspaper and News Agency Employees Organizations, here today.
         The contribution of media to the society could not be ignored in the present-day world but maintaining credibility is a major challenge before the media. If they are able to maintain credibility, they would certainly be successful in their mission or profession, he said.
           Exhorting the media persons to take media as a mission, he said in the pre-Independence days, leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Lokmanya Tilak had taken media as a mission, and not as a profession, with the aim to get the country freed from the clutches of Britishers.
    As far as challenges are concerned, media and politicians are facing almost same challenges. While narrating an incident, the Chief Minister said when Mr Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of the country he was asked by the media about his biggest challenge. Mr Modi replied that maintaining good image of his fraternity was his biggest challenge.
           Similarly, to achieve success in the profession, media persons should maintain its image and credibility. Today, professionals like advocates, doctors and media persons need to work with missionary zeal by sticking to ethics for betterment of the society.
      Now-a-days, media has grown manifold and so has the competition among them. The aim of the media should be to work to eliminate social evils from the society, enlighten the people on several issues and refrain from giving news which is not based on facts, he said. 
    Referring to the social media, the Chief Minister said the world had become a village and this form of media was emerging as the fastest way of disseminating news from one part of the world to another as compared to electronics and print media. But authenticity of the news should be verified before circulating it on the social media. He urged media persons to separate news from views as this could present someone in bad light before the readers.
          Mr Manohar Lal said the state government had implemented the pension scheme for media persons in the state and the other announcements made by him would also be implemented soon. Media rooms have been set up in five districts and the process to set up such rooms in the remaining districts is in progress. Haryana is a media-friendly state and everything possible would be done for the welfare of media persons, he added.
          Those present included Director, Information, Public Relations and Languages Department, Mr Sameer Pal Srow, Media Advisor to the Chief Minister, Mr Amit Arya, and a large number of media persons.
