The police here have booked around 40 persons for making a murderous attack on a Congress Sarpanch in Ghanaur block of Patiala district on Friday following a tussle between two groups of Takhtumajra village.
Members of the Patiala Media Club on Saturday organized a blood donation camp where 41 units of blood were collected. The members of the press club organized the event on National Press Day to commemorate the 550th Parkash Purb of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
For many weeks, there was a tussle between the Punjab government and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) over the control of stage for big events at Sultanpur Lodhi to observe the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, which led to two parallel platforms. However, post-event analysis reveals that there would not have been much of a difference if only one stage was set for the occasion.
