by Haryananewswire (Balbir)
Dr. K. K. Khandelwal, Additional Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Haryana and Financial Commissioner and Principal Secretary, Information, Public Relation and Cultural Affairs Departments today exhorted the youth to oppose injustice and corruption  by tooth and nail rather than being dumb spectators.       
          Dr. Khandelwal, who was speaking as a chief guest in the annual function of Chaman Vatika School, Ambala, said that today corruption was rampant in many countries of the world and the governments of Eqypt and Libya had witnessed coups due to corruption prevailing in these countries. In addition to it, people in Middle East and other Asian countries were also raising their voice against corruption. It was the moral duty of the people to oppose   every such wrong thing as is against the law, he added.        
         He said that the year 2011 had been the year of revolution and common people had been empowered. Referring to the agitations against corruption being undertaken in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Bahrin, Monteria, Sudan, Algeria, Middle East, in Asian countries and Latin America, he said that people in 82 countries and 950 cities of the world were raising their voice against corruption and it was being termed as October revolution.

by Haryananewswire (Balbir)
As a result of a tripartite agreement reached between the Haryana Government, Management of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd and Workers, the labour unrest, continuing since October 7 in the four plants of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, Suzuki Motorcycle, Suzuki Powertrain Ltd and Suzuki Casting Plant came to an end today and the workers would return to work with immediate effect.
          While giving this information here today, an official spokesman said that this had been made possible due to the intervention of the Haryana Labour Department and the District Administration of Gurgaon in a series of talks held with the Management of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd and the representatives of the workers of the plants.
As a part of the agreement reached, the management has agreed to take back 64 of the 2,000 permanent workers who had been sacked for breaching disciplinary guidelines. Another 30 will remain suspended because of the “serious nature” of their actions during the industrial dispute. All the contractual workers would now be allowed to come back and work in these Plants and the situation of the workers would now be the same as was on August 29, 2011.
          He said that Maruti had decided to set up a “grievance redressal committee”, with representation from the management and workers, to prevent further strikes. A labour officer would also be a permanent member on the committee.  In order to provide a harmonious working environment at the facility, it was also decided that in future if there was a strike in any one Plant of Maruti Suzuki, the workers of the other plants would not join the strike.
          It was further decided amongst both the sides that the concept of ‘no work no pay’ would also come into force, thereby no pay would be due towards the striking workers. Besides this, only one day’s pay would be deducted as penalty.

simplicity and sincerity. ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’ slogan given by him gave a boost to agriculture and the
