WHICH PUNJAB? THE ONE THAT IS BLESSED OF THE ONE THAT IS CURSED?
Date: 23 Oct 2007
A PUNJABI PATRIOT'S COMMENT ON TWO PUNJABS THAT WERE ONE MIGHTY PROVINCE (THE SIZE OF GERMANY) TILL 1947.
I don't think the West Part of Punjab is under threat.
(i) Language is well preserved there.
(ii) No threat of female of foeticide
(iii) Literacy rate better than E. Punjab
(iv)Population steadily growing where as in East
family planning programme over advertised. Today
thousands of couples are issueless especially
(v) No threat of bhaiya influx who affect your
(vi) I dont think their industry is threatened. Here
in the East it is fast migrating to Himachal in view
of the tax holiday announced by the Govt. Here the
Chheharta industrial area is completely erased while
the man who promoted industrial migration 'satya pal
dang' has been honoured twice by the Indian Govt first
as Padamshree and then padam vibhushan along with his
(vii)The liquor consumption in West Punjab is
negligible, where as the East Punjab Govt earned Rs.
1643 crore as excise revenue from liquor. Imagine the
magnitude of the liquor that has been consumed.
(viii) There is no threat to natural resources of WEst
punjab. Here the Govt has diverted their flow to
non-reparian areas like Rajasthan and Haryana while
the ground water level is daily going down. It is
estimated that in next 30 years farming in Punjab will
fail. i dont think Rajasthan and Haryana will gain
much. But what can you do this is Hindutava at work.
(ix)There is influx of Hindi newspapers and TV
channels are not free. Punjabi TV channels are being
run by non-Punjabis and meaningful dialogue is
missing. TV channels can show only dancing and singing
(x) by next 34 years Punjabis (Sikhs) will be in
minority in Punjab and we are going to see another
ASSam. Punjabis will never tolerate rule of non-
punjabis here. Thus get ready for the blood bath.
THUS PUNJAB NEEDS TO WAKE UP FROM THE DEEP SLEEP.
