affected These two plants get raw water supply from Wazirabad The water we get from Haryana through Yamuna is picked up at Wazirabad These plants are dependent on water from Haryana through Munak Canal The two plants provide 30 per cent of the total potable water supply in the capital Has there been an impact on habitation in areas near Wazirabad along the Yamuna where ammonia level increased Since the increase in ammonia was temporary habitation in the area does not get directly affected apart from potable water supply getting hit in areas which get water from these two plants It is only when ammonia level increases over a long course of time when it seeps into the ground water supply and people use this water that there will be an impact Since there is an increase in ammonia only for 2-5 days the surrounding areas are not affected As soon as the ammonia level increases we open the gates and make sure that water is released and that it does not stand in that area for long So there is no possibility of this ammonia seeping into the groundwater Some studies have shown that in parts of Delhi the content of ammonia and other pollutants is high What are the steps the DJB is taking to tackle this If groundwater in a particular area already has ammonia due to industries operating there or due to geological reasons that is a different issue The increase in ammonia level in Yamuna is a different issue There will be adverse impact if this Yamuna water with high ammonia content is left standing at a particular place for too long There are many industries which are illegally releasing dirty water it causes pollution in ground water too However DJB does not have a mandate over this The ground water control board is responsible for this In many parts of Delhi pollution has been found in groundwater and water bodies We have maintained that people in Delhi should not draw ground water for drinking purposes since it is not fit for consumption There are many industries from where dirty water is seeping into the ground We will have to stop it but DJB does not have the mandate to tackle this issue it is with the CPCB For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express

will help Indian Cricket regain its leadership position in all formats of the game Their participation augurs well for the future of the game in our country and the noble intention to ‘give back to the game’ is commendable” said BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur in a press release The board has been talking about setting up the advisory committee since Jagmohan Dalmiya and Anurag Thakur took over as BCCI president and secretary respectively in March this year Earlier reports mentioned Ganguly Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid as the three men the board wanted The committee is formed with a view to enable Indian Cricket be better prepared for the challenges of the future The statement from BCCI confirmed that areas of immediate focus will be "to provide guidance to our national team as we set out to enhance our performance on overseas engagements provide direction to improve our talent pathway and take steps to strengthen domestic cricket to better prepare our players to handle the rigours

Thakur and Dalmiya will consult with the panel on all major cricketing decisions While there had been lot of speculation of late regarding Ganguly’s appointment as chief coach or Team Director his appointment in advisory panel might mean that either Ravi Shastri will continue in his current role or a new chief coach and support staff will be taking charge According to BCCI sources the Indian cricketers can seek technical advise from the trio and the Board wants batsmen to specifically speak to Tendulkar before any tough international assignment Ganguly might well be consulted for preparing a blueprint for success of the team overseas with Laxman working on the bench-strength and the new talent coming in through the system The new innings that the cricketers are starting out on

Khan feels it would be logical to shift their release dates so that both the films do not eat into each other’s business “I think logic will be to shift (release dates of both ‘Raees’ and ‘Sultan’) We will try and figure out a way so that it doesn’t eat into each other’s business It is awkward… it’s like what are we doing I don’t think we like to have it (box office clash)” Shah Rukh told PTI The 50-year-old star said he will talk to his friend Aditya Chopra who is the producer of “Sultan” and Salman regarding the box-office clash of both the films Read More “Adi (Aditya Chopra) is my family and so is Farhan Akhtar (producer of Shah Rukh’s ‘Raees’) With all due respect I will speak to Adi Salman (about avoiding the clash) I have spoken to Farhan already If we have to change one of us will move on” Shah Rukh said “If they are adamant or fixated that somehow due to some sense of righteousness Eid belongs to Salman Khan so be it” SRK said he and his producers have no ego issues about the release dates of both the films “Personally Farhan Adi and I are friends and I don’t think we have ego issues We all know if there is an opening number assumed in terms of business we will share it 50-50 or whichever ratio I am not saying X is a bigger star or Y” But at the same time Shah Rukh insisted that they are working towards making “Raees” ready for Eid “As of now we are making the film ready for Eid Our production is ready for Eid” he said Producer Farhan Akhtar too had hinted that they will see if the clash happens or not Shah Rukh’s last film “Dilwale” released alongside Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus “Bajirao Mastani” – starring Ranveer Singh Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra “In case of ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ both lost money due to the clash One doesn’t want it” Shah Rukh said adding “It has never been a fight of arrogance when it comes to the release of a film I feel every film should get its due” Rahul Dholakia’s “Raees” is set in 1980s of Gujarat

look in the movie According to him it is a realistic and honest film “I wanted to do an intense criminal role with a golden heart I loved the idea very much and said yes in 20 minutes I think it will be an interesting film We have been able to make it in the real zone and still give it a twist for the masses by having songs and action” he said “‘Raees’ transcends the journey of a man who may not be the best person to make a movie about He is a bad guy you might like” he said Shah Rukh had last played a bad guy in the remake of “Don” “Yes I am in a way playing a bad guy after a long time This film is more realistic and gritty while ‘Don’ was stylised and sexy On the sets some people did not talk to me as I looked mean It will turn out well” he said Actress Sunny Leone will be seen dancing with Shah Rukh in a new take of the 1980 “Laila O Laila” from “Qurbaani” The original track featured Feroz Khan and Zeenat Amaan “We wanted to do the song in the first schedule that time we did not get it We did a new song an original one It is not an item song It is a film set in the ’80s so it’s a bar number it is related to the story “We always wanted to do the song with Sunny We thought

” For all the latest Entertainment News,was a fiery 27. Marathi films were made on a small budget. But they were afraid of taking loans and not being able to pay them back. Op Woodrose to sweep the rest of the state clear of militants and ma??intain order and Op Metal to specifically catch or kill Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and members of his inner core team — came from The greatest mystery of these 30 years however is how and why with such elaborate planning the army brass miscalculated on Blue Star so horribly It is tempting to say they were arrogant and underestimated the task but that would be unfair More than 70000 troops had been called to Punjab tanks APCs and all Vijayanta tanks had been lined up along the final approaches of the Golden Temple much before the first shots were exchanged between the army and the militants The media was cleared out even before the militants all telephone lines cut and the state put under not curfew but martial law for the first and hopefully last time in our history There was no underestimation of the task but I dare say now that there was a touching belief that the militants wouldn’t fight and if they did their resolve would be broken in a couple of hours All the bandobast therefore was to stun them with a display of firepower a strategy of shock and awe decades before it was given that name in Iraq by George Bush junior Each of the generals involved Brar Western Army Command chief of staff Lieutenant General Ranjit Singh Dyal Army Commander K Sundarji and his chief General Arun Shridhar Vaidya (later assassinated by revenge-seeking Sikh gunmen while driving his Maruti 800 after retiring in Pune) later admitted to this miscalculation to some extent There was a firm belief that Bhindranwale would not fight he would surrender or try to escape Just how serious this misreading was I first learnt from a senior Intelligence Bureau officer who spoke to me in some horror after spending the first few hours with army commanders He said he tried to tell them that Bhindranwale and his people would fight to the finish but was not merely overruled but mocked In fact one of the generals pointed at some of his black-dungareed commandos who were getting kitted out and briefed and said “Have you seen these bhoots (devils) of mine The terrorists have to merely see them and they will surrender with their tails between their legs” My IB friend a wonderful professional and a patriot retreated from the argument sort of fatalistically The first assault by the commandos ran into trouble One set of audacious generals had overlooked the fact that they weren’t up against some armed rabble but a small army of faithfuls led by someone just like them In fact a fellow general as bright if not brighter than all of them Former Major General Shabeg Singh had served with each one of those serving he had received his fame organising and training the Mukti Bahini during the Bangladesh war and was a master of guerilla warfare He earned infamy later as he was accused of irregularities and dismissed a day before retirement But as most human beings do he never believed he was guilty but was victimised because of what else but his religion He had found spiritual succour and a new soldierly cause with Bhindranwale although now in what he saw as the service of his faith not his republic Just how good was he I won’t go by hearsay though even that makes him sound superhuman Wading through the rubble at the Akal Takht a couple of days after the fighting we found a copy of a book a thin memoir written by a Pakistani brigadier who was taken PoW in Bangladesh It had been presented by an officer of the BSF’s intelligence branch who had “sourced” it from across the border It had a warm and respectful note to Shabeg Singh from his BSF fan saying how happy he was to see high praise for the (now rebel) general from the Pakistani brigadier and what a privilege it was to present the book to him Since it was being thrown in the rubble I picked it up and kept it In any case the defence of the Golden Temple was not so much about high strategy or even old-fashioned guerilla warfare It was more like a battalion-level tactical defence of a built-up complex of buildings They provided alleys parapets machine-gun emplacements tunnels towers and lots of ancient marble walls more impregnable than modern armour Most importantly it had a bunch of manholes So important because it was inside them that he placed his LMGs which sprayed murderous grazing fire at assault troops while guns positioned higher up rained sweeping fire Together they fully covered the small open courtyard maybe half the size of a football field where the attackers had to expose themselves to reach the Akal Takht This was his designated killing ground as it would be defined in classic infantry defence manuals specifically in this case following the principles of what acronym-loving armies called FIBUA (Fighting in Built-Up Areas) Manhole LMGs were so effective because they denied the attackers the basic defensive tactic of hitting the ground and crawling because the bullets then got you in the bodies instead of merely the legs A very large number of the jawans therefore were injured in the legs Please look at the picture of a row of beds from a military hospital treating the injured after Blue Star Shabeg wasn’t foolhardy enough to think he would win His tactic was to optimise his resources snipers behind any hiding place every room along the parikrama infested by a gunman or two so any probing patrols would be cut down others sprinting up and down the staircases linking just the two floors of the buildings and their parapets His idea was to inflict as many casualties as possible and thereby delay the inevitable so that Bhindranwale’s supporters in the villages had enough time to organise mobs to converge on Amritsar and make further army operations impossible unless Indira Gandhi was willing to inflict scores of Jallianwala Baghs in Punjab It was a good approach that succeeded tactically The commandos did not get very far took several casualties and also underlined the generals’ unthinking impatience in launching them in black dungarees on white marble as it gleamed in bright moonlight A more conventional infantry charge by the troops of 10 Guards a regiment genetically designed by none else than god for the assault role was stopped as well as it spilled in from the main entrance This was the first time the generals were made to wonder if they had miscalculated More assault troops launched from other directions were similarly pinned down Typical of the Indian doctrine in such situations the army followed the approach of incremental escalation and not with the best results One infantry unit after another was thrown in but casualties only mounted Then an approach was tried through an APC but again sort of half-heartedly in a wheeled old SKOT rather than a tracked Russian BMP with better armour and firepower It was knocked out by a militant RPG-7 rocket launcher and there was much recrimination on this later Did intelligence warn the army of the presence of such a weapon Or were the generals being too arrogant (incompetent) in not anticipating this That night as I sat on a high terrace that did not have a view of the battleground but helped you understand the story with flashes fires and explosions I recorded the night’s noises on a tiny tape-recorder as also some of the police and army wireless conversations on a radio with the FM band (FM radio had not arrived in India yet and security forces used some of the same frequencies on which we now hear music) These conversations got more frantic as the night ended There were nearly 3000 infantry troops pinned down hundreds wounded more than a hundred bodies This time of the year the sun comes out really early and every soldier still alive — all the thousands of them — would be a sitting target for snipers As often happens in such situations the battlefield the “terrain” was the best force-multiplier for the defender He could hide and fire whereas the attackers had to expose themselves This was unacceptable so further escalation became inevitable For greater detail I would again shamelessly refer you to my “Blood Sweat and Tears” chapter in The Punjab Story But even 30 years later I can see nothing less regrettably than a story of incredible military courage and yet incompetence No soldier flinched even when faced with an impossible task And the generals who had misread and miscalculated played on incrementally until the dawn threatened and artillery — not heavy but artillery nevertheless — was called out along with Vijayanta tanks that blazed with their main guns The brutal destruction of the Akal Takht building was now launched in earnest If Bhindranwale wouldn’t flee or surrender or come out in a suicidal charge he would be entombed there now There were Vijayantas to the left of the sarovar (see sketch) firing from just a couple of hundred yards and howitzers on top of facing buildings firing in direct mode This was the equivalent of a sledgehammer where a psychological or at worst surgical strike had been anticipated There was never any doubt who would win But the cost in lives sentiment political consequences and a legacy of anger and bitterness had not been imagined It is for this reason that I would call Operation Blue Star a bold brave audacious operation where soldiers did the profession of the arms proud but both leaderships political and military showed gross incompetence But the generals of one side were not the only ones who had miscalculated Bhindranwale too made similar arrogantly delusional blunders He had boasted that the Sikhs in the army wouldn’t fight him Two of the three generals involved Brar and Dyal were Sikhs The first army injury Captain Jasbir Singh Raina of 10 Guards was a Sikh too Brar told me in a Walk the Talk interview on NDTV 24×7 days after the attack on him in London that while addressing his troops before the assault he had given the freedom to opt out to everybody particularly Sikhs if they had any hesitation Nobody did Raina in fact volunteered to go in first If the generals showed an underestimation of the militants’ fervour and tactical dash Bhindranwale — and sadly Shabeg too — showed similar lack of appreciation of the ethos of their own country’s army Many militants and civilians died but the army suffered gravely too And brutally so This morning responding to the first in this series I received a touching email from K Ramkumar the HR head of ICICI Bank mentioning that his cousin was part of the “Thambis” of the hapless Madras Regiment battalion that suffered severely in the assaults It was 26 Madras and I had the privilege of being taken under their wing even while the wounded were being tended to They suffered heavy casualties and when one of their assault sections managed to enter the Akal Takht the JCO leading it was overpowered blinded and flung from the top of the building to the marble courtyard But the cruellest saddest and most unnecessary loss of life was that of battalion doctor Captain Rampal more than 24 hours after the fighting was over He was walking around looking for the wounded from any side to tend to when a group of terrorists hiding in one of the basements dragged him in demanded that none else than the head priest of the Temple be sent down to negotiate with them and when that wasn’t done the doctor was tortured to death his body dismembered The officers of the battalion led by Lieutenant Colonel Panikkar took me to their mess one evening and fed me a meal of sambhar and curd rice from their langar which was such a blessing after a week of dry rations and told more stories One of these was of Lieutenant Ram Prakash Roperia of Jind in Haryana the baby of the battalion His English was rather basic but like any self-respecting Haryanvi he would speak in no other language So everybody called him by a mockingly anglicised name: Robert Prince Ruparia He fell to a sniper bullet on the afternoon of June 6 as he climbed down a rope ladder from the wide parikrama parapet where several of his comrades lay flat to escape snipers In the 46-degree sun for all of the day they were dying of thirst and heat stroke and young Robert Prince a baby but an officer to the core volunteered to go down and bring water A sniper in the Temple shot him in the neck Roperia died three days later It was while talking about his sacrifice at the sambhar dinner at 26 Madras that night that I got my finest lesson ever in leadership and a line I have used often since then even in my farewell note to my colleagues at The Indian Express this Monday: there is a moral dimension to leadership If there were so many soldiers lying flat on that parapet why did the youngest and an officer have to expose himself to bring water “Because” said Panikkar “there is a moral dimension to leadership” If the officer is not in front why would the troops follow him to whatever consequences Thank you Lt Col Panikkar wherever you are You gave me a lesson no life coach or famous general ever could There were also many other mysteries and mythologies What happened on the first night of fighting for example in the sarais from where several Akali leaders were rescued and many militants escaped while a sudden flurry of grenades and the confusion that followed led to the death of a very large number of people maybe a couple of hundreds in the crossfire many of them innocent devotees It was later said that the army unit there from 9 Kumaon Regiment had lined up the Sikhs and shot them randomly Frankly I tried every source possible but could never confirm this But that there were many deaths most of them unnecessary is undeniable Many Sikh survivors including some priests back the deliberate massacre story But my sources in the army always insist that this was just murderous confusion caused by the militants some of whom hid in the pilgrims’ rooms in the sarais and cut down the soldiers who tried to clear them The Kumaonis responded by presuming every room to be terrorist-occupied and fired also resulting in innocent deaths Thirty years later I am still not willing to buy that deliberate massacre story though so many survivors have repeated it In so many decades of covering the army’s operations I have found Indian soldiers to be mostly honourable and the officers if anything caring and cautious to the extent of being soft in such situations I wasn’t in the sarais that night But everybody knows that the Kumaonis’ company commander Major HK Palta was I cannot say who killed whom and why but among the lives lost all Indian was also Major Palta’s His family now lives in Noida If anything the fiasco at the sarais completed sadly the story of those 72 hours Postscript: I have many nightmares from those three horrible days involving the bodies of fellow Indians One is of a truck parked at the kotwali on the morning of June 7 when curfew had been relaxed for a couple of hours An awful stench rose from the truck and what looked like blood mixed with viscous bodily fluids dripped from its leaky frame I joined the several policemen who grabbed its rear wall and raised themselves to take a look at what lay inside There were scores literally scores of bodies and nobody could say who was a combatant and who a devotee But so many dead fellow Indians rotting under the 46-degree sun A DSP we all knew well lost his composure and started screaming abuses both at the army and Bhindranwale for causing so much death To the right of the truck under the same sun sat about 50 suspected militants with their limbs tied while soldiers kept watch over them behind an LMG on a tripod and an officer a Sikh interrogated them in public There was nothing physical about it just an angry volley of basic questions Possibly it was sights like this that spread stories of Sikhs being lined up and shot by firing squads The second was a convoy of three army trucks weaving its way through the narrow old-city lane called Braham Buta Akhara connecting the Temple complex Once again I raised myself to the back of one and found three rows of stretchers on either side with bodies of soldiers The one on top to the right a boy from Garhwal Regiment no more than 19 or 20 possibly still had beads of perspiration on his nose He must have just died Both nightmares involve my dead countrymen Neither will ever go away [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: AP | Published:
