Noble cause - ECAS Punjab

Gurdaspur: Shalu (28) of Bariar village in the district, who had gone to Dubai six months ago, found herself in a difficult situation after her company decided to give her the pink slip following the lockdown. She had no money and was on the brink of giving up when her colleague gave her the phone number of philanthropist Dr Surinder Pal Singh Oberoi, who has earned goodwill for his work for the welfare of immigrants. On getting a call from Shalu, Oberoi sent his Dubai-based PRO Baldeep Singh to help her. Shalu was given air tickets and now she is flying back to India on July 22 by a SpiceJet chartered plane.

Goodwill gesture

Muktsar: Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and her husband and SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal personally congratulated some students, who scored good marks in the CBSE Class X and XII examinations, over the phone. While Harsimrat spoke to three girls of her Bathinda parliamentary constituency on making it to the Class X merit list, Sukhbir interacted with a visually impaired boy of Mansa district (falling in Bathinda parliamentary constituency), who scored 95 per cent marks in Class XII. The Badal couple also offered help to these students.
