    Haryana grants second language status to Punjabi


    CHANDIGARH: Removing a long drawn grievance of Punjabi population in Haryana, the Haryana Government has granted second language status to Punjabi in the state, which has a sizable population of Punjabis.

    Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda Thursday said "Punjabi will now be officially treated in the same way as Hindi or English,". Haryana has had a big chunk of Punjabi-speaking population since the state was carved out of Punjab in 1966.

    "We have issued notification and accorded second language status to Punjabi and now, any MLA can ask a question in Punjabi," Chief Minister told reporters here.

    The government would make concerted efforts for the promotion of Punjabi language and literature, he promised.

    The community with a population about 15 lakhs, has a sizeable presence in Kurukshetra, Karnal, Faridabad and Gurgaon.

    Last year, A C Choudhry, who was a minister in the previous Congress cabinet, had raised a banner of revolt, alleging that his own party-led government had ignored the Punjabi-speaking community.

    Not really, Apart from a few districts Punjabis don't number much in most of Haryana. However, during the 80s and 90s the population increased in much of Haryana.

    Same date same interview but deliberately ignored by Congress supporter Punjabi Newsline online newspaper :

    Hooda resolute on Chandigarh issue .:. newkerala.com Online News -39783

    Hooda resolute on Chandigarh issue
    Chandigarh, Jan 28 : Asserting that Haryana would never renounce its claim on Chandigarh, Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today said the only practical solution of the long pending territorial dispute between Punjab and Haryana was to allot the Union Territory to his state.

    ''Chandigarh belongs to us and we will never renounce our claim on the city,'' Mr Hooda said while talking to reporters at a Meet-the-Press programme at the Chandigarh Press Club here.

    Asked what could be the practical solution of the long pending dispute, Mr Hooda quipped: ''The only practical solution is to give Chandigarh to Haryana.'' On the demand for a separate High Court for Haryana, Mr Hooda said the proposed High Court must be located at Chandigarh only.
    --UNI

    We knew it from the day the interview took place.This tactic of giving a slap and then a lollipop is an old one .Badal,Hooda,GOI all practice this on Sikhs.

    At least Sikhs in Punjab are aware of this and know that all this is just political gimmick.Sikhs in Punjab are not going to be fooled by such tactics.

    RSS terrorists have usurped our land,killed 2 lakhs of our brothers,now they want to invade our religion for which they even threaten various forums ,hijack some,and even ban people ,go to {url not allowed},panthic.org and see for yourself and now they want to dictate us according to their wishes even in Punjab.

    Deletion of inappropriate language. Please debate the issues.

    The previous post has been moved to Leaders so that several people will consider the extent to which SPN Terms of Service have been violated. Once a decision is made, the post will be returned or deleted from the thread.

    The post has now been returned to the thread.

    Once a policeman got word that a mass murderer was on a bus nearby where his vehicle was parked. He raced to follow the bus, jumped out of his car, forced his way on board -- only then realized that he did not have a good description of the suspect.

    So he shot everyone on the bus. That way he could be certain that he taken care of the matter and had killed the one guilty of so many evil deeds.


    kee_jaana__mein__kaun,

    You are convinced that every Hindu is an enemy of Sikhs. There is another forum member as angry with me as you. He was convinced that every Muslim inside of India was an enemy of India. He doesn't post here any more. How is your approach different?

    The story above should be self-explanatory. Future outbursts will be removed from the threads.

    First of all, Chandigarh is not Punjab. Chandigarh is Chandigarh.

    What has this got to do with RSS again? Its a land issue. Its been there since 1966.

    Get your facts straight Chandigarh has been built by destroying Punjab villages.Pratap Singh Kairon persuaded the "Punjabi" farmers mostly Sikhs to give the land for making capital of "Punjab".Haryana and center have usurped it by illegal means.

    Any way now the matter is beyond Chandigarh,Punjabi speaking areas,River waters and the main demand is Khalistan.At the moment the peaceful phase of the movement is continuing if the govt will let it remain peaceful.

    We'll use all means to get Khalistan.
