Rana terms repeal of Farm Laws, reopening of Kartarpur Sahib Corridor as bold initiatives: Rana



Devender Singh Rana

Attributing the announcement of Prime Minister to repeal the three farm laws to his unflinching faith in democracy, BJP leader and former legislator Devender Singh Rana today said that Narendra Modi has emerged as a democrat-statesman who keeps the nation first.

“The nation is proud of the sagacious political stand taken by the Prime Minister in the interest of the nation and for satiating the urges of farmers”, Rana said while addressing Sangat at Gurdwara Yadgar Lt. Gen.(Retd) Bikram Singh at, Bikram Chowk, Jammu, held in commemoration of the Gurupurab.

Rana also hailed the opening of Kartarpur Sahib Corridor to enable a huge number of devout to pay obeisance at the revered Gurdwara, notwithstanding the cowardice of the neighbouring nation which has inflicted many scars on Indian psyche by being a corroborator in the most inhuman acts.

“It was only appropriate to reopen the corridor on the Prakash Parw of Guru Nanak Devji, apostle of peace, harmony, social justice and equality. He greeted the Sangat and exuded confidence that such occasions would be observed in the true spirit of amity and brotherhood. He lauded the valour of Sikhs, saying their bravery and sacrifices towards the nation will always remain a source of inspiration for generations.

Rana said the people of J&K have been sharing each others’ joys by being part of the festivals, which forge the spirit of brotherhood and camaraderie. He hoped this spirit of inclusiveness would flourish leaps and bounds for bringing harmony and tranquility in the society.

He said all religions stand for love, amity and selfless service but their teachings should not be allowed to fall silent in the din of hate and greed. To eschew these tendencies, there is an immense need of generating awareness about the unity indiversity as professed by all religions, he maintained. Rana said the best way of celebrating festivals is to take a pledge to follow the path of righteousness in letter and spirit and work for building a society based on the natural principles of social justice, equality, compassion, love and togetherness.

This has been the core of the teachings of Guru Nanak Devji. Prominent among those present on the occasion included senior BJP leader Satish Sharma, President Gurudwara Committee and BJP Leader Sardar Jasmeet Singh , BJP District General Secretary IT Cell, Upinder Singh , BJP Leader of Transport Cell Sardar Darshan Singh, Sardar Mohan Singh, Sardar Jagdev Singh, S. Jarnail Singh, Anil Verma , Sanjay Sharma, Dilip Singh and others.

Super Speciality Hospital Jammu

The premises of the Government Super Specialty Hospital Jammu wore a deserted look after many management officials, doctors, and paramedic staff tested positive for COVID-19.

With a surge in COVID-19 cases, the Out Patient Department (OPD) also saw a minimum presence of patients.

On their entry to the hospital, Rapid Antigen Tests are performed on the patients.

“The people who return COVID-19 positive results are not permitted entry into the hospital while people with negative reports are allowed to move into the OPD,” an official said.

“The authorities are allowing only 50 patients in each department of OPD for a checkup every day while around 150 patients used to visit the departments usually,” the official said.

He said that the people had also become conscious and they too were avoiding coming to the hospital unless it was an emergency.

“Routine surgeries have been stopped and only emergency surgeries are being conducted in the operation theatres,” the official said. “Around one-third of people come for an OPD checkup at the hospital now. As the people are tested on their entry to the hospital, many avoid coming to the hospital.”
