What Students to Learn in Kurukshetra University Which is Not Fair in Its Working

Chandigarh (I-Haryana News): The Kurukshetra University which was established in 1956 to encourage the higher education and research, especially in Sanskrit, Prakrit and modern Indian languages has seems that it is now encouraging research journalists to investigate into its unfairness and corrupt working practices.

Intelligent Haryana News Research Team after finalizing the field report and information received under Right to Information Act on January 11, 2013, the exact day when in 1957 Dr.Rajendra Prasad, the first President of the India had laid foundation stone of university, decided to publish research report on working of Haryana’s first university.

The university authorities are bound to work as per the Kurukshetra University Act, 1986 but IHN investigation revealed that this education throne of the state whose government claims itself as number one state of India is openly defying the statute under which it was established, following are the issues where Kurukshetra University failed to act as per act.

No Long Term Perspective Plan for Development
As per section 13 of the Kurukshetra University Act, 1986 The University should have prepared a long-term Perspective Plan outlining the year-wise developmental activities to be carried out by it.

Whereas, the university did not act as per section 13 of the Kurukshetra University Act, 1986 and not prepared its long-term Perspective Plan yet.

Defunct Academic Planning Board Since 2000
Further, Section 13 of the Kurukshetra University Act, 1986 provided that the University would constitute an Academic Planning Board. The Board was to advice on planning and development of the University, particularly in respect of the standards of education and research.   
But, IHN investigation established that Academic Planning Board was last constituted in 1998 and last met in September, 2000 and thereafter the Academic Planning Board remained non-functional till date.

On above mentioned observations Registrar, Kurukshetra University responded ithat University would prepare a five-year Perspective Plan and a vision document for proper implementation of the programmes and activities but till date anything happened in this regard.
Also on non-functioning of Academic Planning Board, the university answered that it was not because the Chancellor still has to nominate seven members of the Board as per Statutes.

University Failed to Prepare its Annual Accounts and Balance Sheets for last 27 Years

Section 26(1) of the Kurukshetra University Act 1986 provides that the University should prepare Annual Accounts and Balance Sheets under the directions of the Executive Council every year, whereas university was preparing only Income and Expenditure Accounts but was not preparing Balance Sheets which is clearly violations of the act.

In response this statute contrary act by university, it Registrar stated that prior to April 2009, it was exempted from preparing Balance Sheets by the Director, Higher Education and the Balance Sheets for the years 2009-10 and 2010-11 were under finalization, on further investigation it was established that exemption from preparing Balance Sheets is not sustainable because the Director, Higher Education was not competent to give exemption from preparing Balance Sheets as the requirement was provided for in the Kurukshetra University Act. Only the legislature was competent to give exemption through amendment of the Act.

In the absence of Balance Sheets, the state of affairs like university assets, liabilities, loans and advances, cumulative excess of income over expenditure or vice-versa could not be investigated thoroughly.

A case could throw light on fraud prone financial management of university where an analysis of the bank reconciliation statement of bank account number 1201 of the Oriental Bank of Commerce (OBC) and 50221 of the State Bank of India (SBI) were made which revealed that Income of Rs 5.026 crore shown as credited in the OBC account as per the books of the University but was not credited by the bank in this account.

Also the closing balances of the expenditure register were carried forward without ascertaining that the amounts debited by banks were as per the books of accounts of the University. Scrutiny of the bank reconciliation statements of the SBI account revealed that debits amounting to Rs 153.40 crore pertaining to the period April 2004 to October 2009 remained non-reconciled.
These discrepancies indicated that the accounting system of receipts and payments was not foolproof and that the system was prone to financial irregularities, which could remain undetected due to non-reconciliation.

False Submission of Grant Utilization Certificate to IGNOU by Kurukshetra University
The University authorities did not stop here further submitted false fund utilization certificate and spent money else, which is a criminal act under Indian Penal code and punishable with provisions of jailed terms for such act.
The Director, Distance Education of the University submitted a proposal for financial assistance of Rs 81.70 lakh to the Director, Distance Education Council, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) for starting a Post-M.Sc Diploma in Bio-informatics and a PG Diploma in Bio-Informatics from 2006-07.

In June 2006 IGNOU provided Rs 40 lakh for starting these courses and in April 2008 University submitted a utilization certificate (UC) for Rs 26.26 lakh and refunded (September 2007) the balance amount of Rs 13.74 lakh to IGNOU.

However, Investigation revealed that the University had not started these new courses as yet but had spent Rs 26.26 lakh on the ongoing courses. Thus, the utilization certificate submitted to IGNOU was false as the expenditure had not been incurred for the purpose for which the funds were provided, as these new courses had not started, as a result of which the students were deprived of the benefit of these courses.
While answering to False Utilization certificate issue the University stated that the Distance Education Council, IGNOU did not raise any objection on the UC. The reply is not convincing as the UC furnished by the University did not indicate diversion of funds.

Non-utilization of the Amalgamated Fund and Non-recovery of Youth Welfare and Cultural Fees
As per Amalgamated Fund Rules Amounts collected from students for the same were to be spent for the benefit of students on specified items such as purchase of sports material, maintenance of playgrounds and swimming pools, amenities for NCC cadets and expenditure in connection with trips to places of historical, geographical, scientific or other educational interests, extra-curricular activities of the students, travelling allowances to sports teams, organization of annual sports meets, etc whereas the University Institute of Engineering and Technology collected funds amounting to Rs 61.41 lakh for this purpose during 2004 to 2011.

However, only Rs 10.94 lakh was spent and Rs 50.57 lakh was lying unspent (March 2011). It was observed that the University had not prepared any plan to provide these facilities to students, as a result of which, the funds remained unutilized and the students remained deprived of these facilities, even after contributing to the fund.

Similarly, the colleges were required to collect Youth Welfare and Cultural fees at the rate Rs 40 per student per annum, of which Rs 30 was to be sent to the department of Youth and Cultural Affairs of the University and Rs 10 was to be retained by the colleges. The technical institutions including B.Ed colleges were required to collect the fees at the rate Rs 500 per student per annum, of which Rs 375 was to be sent to the University and ` 125 was to be retained by the college concerned. These funds were to be utilized for organizing cultural festivals and youth festivals.
Investigation revealed that 94 colleges, institutions and technical institutions had not deposited youth welfare and cultural fees of Rs 66.74 lakh collected from the students with the University as of March 2011.

Further, the Youth Welfare and Cultural Department of the University did not have the details of the number of students enrolled in different years in 52 colleges. In the absence of the number of students, the quantum of outstanding youth and cultural fees of these colleges could not be worked out.

In response to this the Registrar of the University stated that Principals of the colleges have been requested to deposit the outstanding youth welfare fees and work out the actual number of students of 52 colleges but could not assured stern actions against defaulters.
Non-implementation of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Other Educational Institutes
One of the objectives of the University was to coordinate with educational and other institutions in India and abroad having similar objectives.

The University signed 12 MOUs with educational and other institutions in India and abroad during 2007-11. Out of these, only seven MOUs were put into operation. No action was taken to put into operation the remaining five MOUs.

While answering to non implementation of MoUs the Chairman of the University School of Management stated (May 2011) that ex-facto sanction of Government of India for starting an MBA (International) course in collaboration with the University of Canada, West Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, Canada had been received but the University is in a process of starting the course.

The Registrar of the University replied that implementation of the MOUs depended on the interest taken by the other concerned parties and that efforts would be made to revitalize these MOUs.

Following are the institutes with them MoUs were signed but not implemented till date.
1. University of Gambia Kanifing Serrekunda,
2. University of Canada ,West Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, Canada,
3. Vel-Tech DR R R and Doctor Senior Technical University (VTU), Chennai,
4. Department of Science and Technology GOI, New Delhi
5. American Institute of Indian Studies, New Delhi.
University does not follow the AICTE norms for infrastructure in Instructional Area
As per AICTE norms, the sizes of instructional areas for classrooms, laboratories/workshops and libraries/reading rooms should be 66, 200 and 400 sq m respectively.

It was found that in UIET, the actual sizes of classrooms, laboratories and the library/reading room were 57.01, 57.81 and 184.32 sq m respectively. Thus, the students were forced to work in a congested environment.
The Registrar of the University replied that the norms of AICTE came into force in UIET in the year 2010 and the construction of its building had been planned in the year 2003. The reply is not acceptable as the AICTE Act came into force in 1987 and the sizes of classrooms, laboratories/workshops, etc. should have been adhered to the norms of AICTE.

Inadequate Hostel Accommodation
Hostel accommodation was provided to the campus students of the University. Investigation showed that there was overcrowding in the hostels from 2006-07 to 2009-10, as the average number of students was far in excess of the intake capacity as detailed below:

It would be seen from the above that against the intake capacity of 5,005 students, the actual occupancy was 5,856. Overcrowding of hostels was not conducive for study and hygienic living. Further, the space for the intake capacity of 97 beds had been used for office work, which also added to the overcrowding.
The Registrar of the University replied that more hostels with capacity of accommodating 1,200 students were under construction and on completion of these, more students could be accommodated.

Book Bank not Established for Poor Students 
Grants for creation of a Book Bank are provided by UGC for helping needy and poor students. It was, however, noticed that no Book Bank had been established in the libraries of the University. Further, no grant was sought for the purpose from UGC during 2006-11.

Research Activities in Disarray

The Government, national and international agencies sponsor research projects in the University and provide necessary financial support for successful completion of the projects.

The details Investigation of all the 32 Government sponsored research projects it was established that seen only 12 were completed that too after the delays of one to 16 months.

Similarly, 22 UGC sponsored research projects involving an expenditure of Rs 1.37 crore were undertaken during 2006-11. Out of these, 14 projects were due for completion but only five projects were completed by June 2011. Three of these were completed after a delay of six to 14 months.

Delay in submission of theses

As per the ordinance regarding the Doctorate of Philosophy of the University, the normal duration of a Ph.D is four years for full time research scholars (RS) and five years for part-time scholars. But investigation confirmed that submission of theses was dismal in the Commerce stream where not a single research scholar submitted his/her theses on time. In other departments also, the percentage of theses submitted within the stipulated period ranged between 18 and 66 per cent. Delayed submission of theses put a burden on the existing infrastructure.

Last not the least the above mentioned facts confirmed that the Kurukshetra University is not fair in its working and its management to achieve the objectives and activities mentioned in its the Kurukshetra University Act, 1986, if the institution whose prime duty is to teach future generation of India about values and innovation for development of society is indulging in corrupt practices and defying the established law responsible for its existence then what could we expect from the students who are learning in this educational institute of number one Haryana( As claimed By Hooda Government)

Dinesh Singh Rawat Says:

It is a serious anti nation act by national education planners and mangers because education institutes should be responsible and above any doubts as they are shaping the future of India.

The University in question should try to clean its working ASAP , It my only request to them in national interest.

14 Year Boy Raises Question Over Naveen Jindal's Tiranga Bangles

Panchkula (I-Haryana News): Panchkula based 14 years old boy, Deepanshu Bansal on Tuesday raised big iota over Congress Member of Parliament from Kurukshetra, Mr. Naveen Jindal move to launch Tiranga Bangles.
As per information Master Deepanshu Bansal minor son of Mr.Vijay Bansal resident of house number 1242, Sector-7, Panchkula has filed a case against Mr. Naveen Jindal, the Flag Foundation of India, a society headed by Mr. Jindal and Ministry of Home Affairs, government of India in Panchkula court on Tuesday and Judge, Dr. Atul Mariya ordered to issue notices to all above mentioned and fixed February 21, 2013 for next hearing of the case for defendants replies.
According to plight made by 14 years boy, Deepanshu Bansal, Mr. Navin Jindal, who studied in America on the earning of his Late father Sh.Om Parkash Jindal, who was a towering personality and a self made man and is under the influence of American Culture, which is of very recent origin and as such he is ignorant of the rich culture of his own country and its strength and meaning of offering of bangles to any one in India.
Following is the original plight filed by Panchkula boy against Mr. Navin Jindal for dishonoring national flag’s dignity mentioned in the Flag Code of India.

Master Deepanshu Bansal minor son of Sh.Vijay Bansal, Advocate, of H.No.1242, Sector-7, Panchkula, through his father Sh.Vijay Bansal being his natural guardian.
1.  Naveen Jindal, Member of Parliament, son of Late Sh.Om Parkash Jindal resident of H.No.171, South Avenue, New Delhi-110011.
2. The Flag Foundation of India( A Society Registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860) H.No.171, South Avenue, New Delhi-110011 through its President/Secretary.
3.The UNION OF INDIA, through its Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, New Delhi.
… Defendants.
UPTO DATE and showing the disrespect to the National Flag including misusing the same and its name for political and business purpose or offer gross afferent or indignity to the Indian National Flag in any
manner,  and further for a decree of mandatory Injunction directing the defendants no.3 to take such steps which are necessary to ensure the dignity and respect of National Flag, after the amendment of the National Flag code of India in view of the Supreme Court Judgment titled as Union of India and others vs. Naveen Jindal reported as 2004(2) JT. Page 1 & initiate appropriate action against the defendant no.1 & 2.

Plaint Under Orders 7 Rule 1 of CPC.


1. That the plaintiff is a student of 8th class of D.A.V. Senior Secondary Public School, Surajpur, Distt. Panchkula and is the resident of the above mentioned address. The plaintiff being minor is
filing the present suit through his father Sh.Vijay Bansal, who is his next friend and Natural Guardian.
2. That the plaintiff has studied that it is the Fundamental Duty of Every Citizen to abide by the Constitution and respects its ideals and institution, the National Flag and National Anthem as enshrined in Article 51-A of the Constitution of India, because the National Flag, National Emblem, National Song, National Animal, National Bird, National Flower, National Language, National Fruit, and the National
Tree are binding force that bind us together and keep us united as a nation and inculcate the feeling of patriotism and Nationalism among our countrymen.
3. That while emphasizing the honour and dignity of Indian National Flag i.e. Tricolour, Flag Code of India, 2002 says as under:- “The Indian National Flag represents that hopes and aspirations of the
people of India. It is the symbol of our National Pride. Over the last five decades, several people including members of armed forces have ungrudgingly laid down their lives to keep the tricolor flying in its full glory. The significance of the colours, and the chakra in the National Flag was amply described by Dr.S.Radhakrishnan in the constituent. Assembly which unanimously adopted the National Flag.
Dr.S.Radhakrishnan explained-“Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation of disinterestness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to soil, our relation to the plaint, life here on which all other life depends. The Ashoka wheel in the center of the
white is the wheel of the law of Dharma. Truth of satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principles, of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion. There is death in
stagnation, there is life in movement, India Should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change.
4. That the Indian National Flag represents the integrity and of the Nation, as such its importance can be judged from the fact that the National Flag was adopted by the constituent Assembly constituted for the framing of Constitution of India, even about two months prior to the 15th of August, 1947 and about two years and 7 months prior to 26 January, 1950.
5.That Sh.K.V.Singh has aptly said in the book titled ‘THE COLOURFUL WORLD OF FLAGS’ published by the “National Book Trust”, that: “A Flag is not a mere piece of cloth, attached to a staff. It is the
symbol of a faith, family, dynasty or a country. For this very reason, people, through history have laid down lives for their flags.” He has further said that how, out of necessity flags came into existence.
“With a view to organizing themselves in a war they invented conspicuous objects in the form of flags which they carried with them to battlefields, so that the soldiers could follow the directions of their flag during an operation of war.
The Egyptians, Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, Indians, and the Muslims all followed similar practices. The ancient Persians displayed a vulture a javelin during a war. The Greeks chose an armour piece, while the
Romans had an eagle for their standards. The Chinese standards bore figures of dragons, the figure of a unicorn and an incense burner during the Indus Valley Civilization.”
He further said:- “In ancient India, flags had religious connotations, too. A number of Puranas provide sufficient details to show that the Indians dhvaja enjoyed the status of a sacred object. The dhvaja-dana or erecting a metal-cum-wooden flagpole in a temple in honour of its deity was considered an act of great merit. The Puranas describe in detail the various dhvajas sported by different Hindu gods and goddesses.
According to the Adi-Purana, the Jain kings used to make dhvaja-dana at their temples. There are many reference to kings, who made dhvaja-dana to temples. The Pali-dhvaja is an integral part of a Jain
shrine according to this Purana. It has five stripes of saffron, basanti (a shade of yellow), white, green and black with the motif of Swastika in the centre of the flag. One can notice such flags on any
of the contemporary Jain shrines as well. Besides fabric flags, flags made of metal particularly of brass or copper can also be seen installed on the shikhar (apex) of the shrine.
The buildings, too, employed flags for propagation of their faith and displayed multi-coloured flags at their places of workship. A number of colourful flags and buntings can be observed flying atop Buddhist-Viharas.
Most of the modern Hindu temples are adorned with red or saffron coloured satin flags, whereas the Muslim shrines are seen dotted with dark green Parchams (flags). Gurudwaras, on a high flagmast called the Jhanda-Sahib, a gold-yellow triangular flag is flown and the flagmast is completely wrapped with the same colour cloth as that of the flag.”

“Further the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India before holding that right to fly the National Flag freely with respect and dignity is a fundamental right of a citizen, within the meaning of Article 19(1)(a) of the constitution of India, being expression and manifestation of his allegiance and feelings and sentiments of pride for the Nations, as such not an absolute right but a qualified one being subject to reasonable restrictions under clause 2 of Article 19 of the constitution of India had aptly discussed the role and duty of the courts to protect the Honour of the ‘National Flag’ in para no.86, in celebrated Judgment in case titled as “Union of India Vs. Naveen Jindal and another”, reported as JT 2004(2) SC 1, which is reproduced as under:-
“The courts jealously protects the honour of the National Flag as would be noticed from a decision of a Division Bench of the Andhra Pradesh court of which one of us, Sinha, J. was a party, in a A.Satya
Phaneendra V. S.H.O. Kodad (PS) Nalgonda and others1, wherein considering a letter enclosing therewith a tri-coloured cloth resembling the National Flag which was sold as handkerchief, the court
referring to the provisions of the said Acts held and directed.

“9.The aforementioned provisions, having regard to the purpose and object thereof, must be given strict construction. They also must be construed in the context of Article 51-A of the constitution of India.

10. The provisions of the aforementioned Acts and the Flag code of India clearly state the reasons as to why the same had to be enacted by the Parliament inasmuch as it is expected of every citizen of India to pay respect to the National Flag, National Anthem and the constitution of India they deserve and any case involving deliberate disrespect thereto must be seriously dealt with….
11. The appropriate authorities including the Collector of Nalgonda District and the superintendent of Police, Nalgonda should have taken all steps to prevent the misuse of the India National Flag.
12 They evidently have failed to perform their statutory duties.
13. Having regard to the fact that it has been stated in the letter dated 15.12.2000 that the writer thereof is not aware of the name(s) of the persons(s) manufacturing the same, we direct the state and in
particular the district collector and the superintendent of Police, Nalgonda district to take steps to conduct investigation with regard to the misuse of the National Flag and see to it that the offenders
are brought to book. Let a copy of this order be sent to the chief Secretary to the Government of Andhara Pradesh so that necessary directions to all concerned may be issued so as to prevent such misuse of the Indian National Flag. Accordingly, we dispose of this writ petition. No costs.”

6.That the aforesaid judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India is being misinterpreted by most of the Citizens including defendant no.1 & 2 in absence of wide publicity, to its operative paras and
National Flag Code and Fundamental Duties enshrined in the Article 51-A Constitution of India including the defendant No.1 and 2, inspite of the fact that the defendant no.1 was the respondent/petitioner in
the aforesaid said case. The defendant no.1 who studied in America on the earning of his Late father Sh.Om Parkash Jindal, who was a towering personality and a self made man and is under the influence of American Culture, which is of very recent origin and as such he is ignorant of the rich culture of his own country and its strength and meaning of offering of bangles to any one in India.  The Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer has aptly described the strength and richness of the India and its culture by reproducing the extract from Australian Law Reform Commission’s Issue in his book titled as “Constitutional Miscellany” as under:- We have great talent, immense scholarship, latent creativity, but still we lag behind in law-making suited to the Indian Genius and needs of the masses. I think, given vital restructuring and new vistas, our legislative pathology may be converted into our Code making opportunity. I conclude from the Australian law Reform Commission’s issue. “The West can teach the East how to get a living, but the East must eventually be asked to show the West how to live”.
7. That being influenced by the American culture the defendant no.1 only gave references of the same in his writ petition before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court and subsequently in the Supreme Court in the
aforesaid case.
8. That the plaintiff was shocked to go through the Hindustan Times dated 5.2.2013 wherein, a news report titled as “JINDAL’S PAIN RELIEVING TIRANGA BANGLES BOGUS?” (TALL CLAIM) appeared. As per the aforesaid news report, Tiranga; the popular name of the National Flag is being misused by the defendant no.1 for political and business purposes through the defendant no.2, which is prohibited under the “Prevention of Insults to the National Honour Act 1971 and the Flag Code of India. The Emblem and names (Prevention of Improper use) Act 1950 and the State Emblem of India Act 1950 and Rules” there under.Further the above said act of the alleged tall claim of the defendant no.1 & 2 made the newspaper reporter who reported the matter to use the word bogus which amounts to offering indignity to the National Flag of India and defendant no.1 & 2 are solely responsible for the same and deserves to be prosecuted and the plaintiff reserve his right initiate separate criminal proceedings against them in case defendant no.3 does not take any action. Photocopy of the newspaper Hindustan
Times cutting dated 5.2.2013 is attached as Annexure P-1.

9. That all citizen of India is equal before the law whether it is the defendant no.1 or a cobbler, as such by taking cue from the act of selling ‘Trianga Bangles’ any cobbler can start manufacturing Tiranga
shoes/Jooties. The action of the defendant no.1 and 2 without realizing the consequences of their action and irreparable loss being caused to the Honour and dignity of the National is illegal and amounts to flouting of National Flag Code of India.

10. That under the influence of the American Culture the defendant no.1 is not only causing irreparable damage to the dignity and Honour of the National Flag but also to the rich and composite culture of the
country by his acts and deeds, as the people of India knows the importance and sanctity of the Flag from the ancient time as the Flag is described in the ‘PURANAS and OLD SCRIPTURES’ originated in this
country. Even the illiterate person in the country side knows that Flags are flown on the top of the “Mandirs, Gurudwaras and others religious places”. But the defendant no.1 and 2 are only publicizing
one part that right to fly the National Flag is Fundamental Right of every citizen, whereas, the other part i.e. respect and dignity to the National Flag is being ignored and due to this reason every agitationist whether wrong or right have started holding the National Flag without knowing how to maintain the dignity and Honour respect to the National Flag, during the agitations these days and the defendant
no.1 & 2 are responsible for this situation. The situation turns ugly when the police has to deal with agitationist, some of whom hold the National Flag in their hand.
11.That the defendant no.3 has failed to perform their duty to enforce the laws/rules and orders which have been enacted with the object to preserve the dignity and honour of the National Flag and deserve to be directed to enforce the aforesaid law, inspite of the fact that the defendant no.3 is duty bound to publicize the National Flag code and educate the citizens about their duty to respect the National Flag. Further the defendants No.1 & 2 who are also claiming that they have fought for the right to fly the National Flag and taking credit for the same to enhance their political prospects, but they are not educating the citizens and publicizing the Flag Code of India and other laws to preserve the Honour and dignity of the National Flag.
12. That the plaintiff has left with no other efficacious remedy except to file the present suit as the defendants have been indiscriminately showing disrespect to the National Flag.
13.That no litigation is pending between the same parties with regard to the same cause of action in any competent court of law.
14.That there is no other officious remedy left with the plaintiff except to file the present suit.
15.That the relief claimed in the suit is of very urgent nature with directly concerns the honour, dignity and sanctity of National Flag and immediate nature and it is not practicable to serve notice upon
the defendants at this stage as the serving of such notice may frustrate the very purpose of filing the suit, as such the present suit is being filed without serving the defendant no.3 a notice under
section 80 CPC and the plaintiff crave the indulgence of this Hon’ble court for the grant of exemption from serving the advance notice under section 80 CPC upon the defendant no.3.

15. That the plaintiff has come to know about the act of misuse of the National Flag by the defendant no.1 & 2 at Panchkula on 5.2.2013, through the HINDUSTAN TIMES dated 5.2.2013, as such the cause of
action in favour of the plaintiff has arose at Panchkula, which is within the jurisdiction of this Hon’ble Court and this Hon’ble Court has got the jurisdiction to entertain and try the present suit.

16.  That the value of the suit for the purposes of court fee and jurisdiction is Rs.___ and the prescribed court fee of Rs.___  Has been affixed on the plaint. 

It is, therefore, respectfully prayed that the present plaint for a DECREE FOR PERMANENT INJUNCTION RESTRAINING THE DEFENDANT NO.1 & 2 FROM FLOUTING THE NATIONAL FLAG CODE OF INDIA 2002 AS AMENDED UPTO DATE and showing the disrespect to the National Flag including misusing the same and its name for political and business purpose or offer gross afferent or indignity to the Indian National Flag in any manner,  and further for a decree of mandatory Injunction directing the defendants no.3 to take such steps which are necessary to ensure the dignity and respect of National Flag, after the amendment of the National Flag code of India in view of the Supreme Court Judgment titled as Union of India and others vs. Naveen Jindal reported as 2004(2) JT. Page 1; initiate appropriate action against the defendant no.1 & 2, to follow the National Flag Code of India may kindly be allowed, in the interest of justice. AND/OR Any other order or direction which this Hon’ble Court deems fit may also be granted in favour of the plaintiff and against the defendants

Dinesh Singh Rawat:

I do agree with Deepanshu Bansal and support his cause. Well done Boy.

In Information Age Hooda’s Public Relations Department Chief Do not Consider Internet as Media

Today, I got chance to meet Mr. Sudhir Rajpal, Director General, Information and Public Relations, Haryana in his office but his assumption about omnipresent emerging media, Internet that too in Information age shocked me.

I started my conversation with him that his department should use internet media more frequently apart from other traditional platforms of mass communication to reach maximum he said, “Internet Ko Kon Dikhata Hain (who watch internet).

After heard Mr. Rajpal views about all emerging Internet, I asked question from myself that was I sitting in front of Public Relations person whose prime official duty is to spread policies and vision of Chief Minister Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Haryana state which claims itself as number one state of India? 

Mr. Rajpal is the person responsible to handle Public Relations of Chief Minister Mr. Hooda’s vision and his Government policies in maximum platforms of mass communication but as he don’t recognize the emerging power of Internet (Online) as media is harming Chief Minister Mr. Hooda and Haryana Government among netizens which is mostly consist of youngsters( the biggest section of India’s population and of Indian democracy).

Also in era where Prime Minister of India and most of the other Public Offices and authorities are officially joining Social Media like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc after recognizing the growing power of internet among citizens especially youngsters to convey their policies and plans, contrary to this Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda led Haryana’s Public Relations department Chief do not considers Internet as media?

 And further Mr. Rajpal raised question mark over Mr. Hooda’s Government Information Technology department claims about expansion of Information and communication Technology infrastructure in the state when he said that mostly Haryana People do not use Internet to get information.

Last not the least as an Online Research Journalist who is working for last 10 year to establish and expend internet media as full-fledged media in India pained me to meet such a Public Relations personality that too of the state which claims itself as number one state in India than what we expect from other?  

I Pray God will save Mr. Hooda and his government from such Public Relations Person
