Fazilka: The BSF and an NGO have jointly initiated efforts to increase the forest cover in the town. Personnel of the 52 Battalion led by Deputy Commandant AK Singh in association with NGO Jwala Bai Nathu Ram Ahuja Trust planted 600 saplings along the banks of Aspal seepage drain near Karnikhera village on Saturday. Environmental pollution is a serious challenge as only less than 3 per cent area is under green cover in Fazilka. Vikram Ahuja of the trust said they had earlier set up "Nanak Bagichis" following Japan's Miyawaki method of afforestation at several places in the town.

Order of the day

Muktsar: Even as the Centre had banned CamScanner app along with 59 other Chinese apps on June 29, various government departments are still using this app for day-to-day work. Hardly a day passes when an official order is not released scanned using this app. Recently, the Information and Public Relations Department released an order scanned via CamScanner. Earlier, the police too had released some documents using this app. Locals say nobody is above law and action should be initiated against those flouting the ban.

Legal cells on cards

Sangrur: Seven-time president of the local District Bar Association Gurtej Singh Grewal has been appointed as chairman of the legal, human rights and RTI wing of the Punjab Congress. Grewal had started his practice at the local courts in 1989. "We will form legal cells at district and subdivision level across the state with an aim at strengthening the party," said Grewal.

Doing their bit

Abohar: Amid Covid-19 pandemic, critical patients in the town are being referred to Faridkot or Bathinda due to the non-availability of a ventilator at the local Civil Hospital. Keeping this in view, Rotary Club, Midtown, donated a portable ventilator to the hospital. While presenting the equipment to the hospital authorities, project chairman OP Trikha assured Senior Medical Officer Dr Gagandeep Singh that PPE kits and masks would also be provided to the staff soon.
