by KAMALDEEP SINGH BRAR | Amritsar | Published: June 25 2017 10:46 am Top News The district administration has ordered a probe following a complaint against Dera Radha Sawami for allegedly constructing a boundary wall and fencing around more than 70 acres of land belonging to Wraich village in an attempt to make it a part of its headquarters spread into hundreds of acres in Beas town of Amritsar district Dera allegedly fenced this land around four years back Some villagers have now demanded that the administration demarcate this land that belongs to the village and hold bidding as per rules for contract farming on this land Lok Bhalai Insaf Welfare Society president Baldev Singh Sirsa said “Around 25 villagers have furnished affidavits to the administration that they are ready to participate in the annual biding for contract farming on this land They have also mentioned in the affidavit that they will start their bidding from Rs 35000 per acre” Sirsa alleged that under pressure the district administration and the village panchyat silently had allowed the dera rights of farming on this land for years at very low bids “The dera has constructed a boundary wall around this land There is no access to this land for us Every year the dera gets this land at a very low bid as there is no other bidder” “Despite all odds a group of villagers went to participate in the bidding held at the local government school on June 8 But they were not allowed to participate by the administration under the pressure of dera” Sirsa said Karamjit Kaur is sarpanch of the village Her father-in-law and former sarpanch Balwinder Singh speaking on her behalf said “Biding for the land was held in a transparent way Everybody was invited and there was no restriction Dera made a bid for around 75 acres of land They would pay Rs 3 lakh for one year for the whole land It would cost them less than Rs 5000 per acre” Sirsa however said that in a related case villagers had given an affidavit in the Punjab and Haryana High Court that they were ready to pay Rs 35000 per acre for this land Balwinder Singh said the dera had been successfully bidding for this land for over 20 years but agreed that villagers were unhappy about the wall constructed around the land He however denied any rigging in the bidding process “The land is not fertile I will have no problem if someone is ready to pay Rs 35000 per acre” said the former sarpanch Additional Deputy Commissioner (Development) of Amritsar Ravinder Singh said “I have received a complaint in which objections were raised over the process of biding of land held earlier this month Complainants also claimed that a boundary wall had been constructed by the Dera around the land which is public property I have asked District Development and Panchayat Officer to probe into the allegations” For all the latest Cities News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Cape Town | Published: August 1 2017 12:47 am Caster Semenya 26-year-old South African is the runaway favourite for the 800m (Source: File) Top News Caster Semenya is making a bold bid for double gold in the women’s 800m and 1500m but her only guarantee at the World Athletics Championship in London is further scrutiny of the gender controversy that has dogged her career The powerful 26-year-old South African is the runaway favourite for the 800m where she seeks a third world title to add to Olympic gold from Rio de Janeiro last year and is taking on the 1500m for the first time at a major international meeting All of this though will come under a cloud of controversy at the Aug 4-13 championships as many feel high testosterone levels give her an unfair advantage Anticipating a storm Semenya this month granted a rare interview to South Africa’s SuperSport TV channel expressing her frustration at continually having her gender questioned “I don’t understand when you say I have an advantage because I am a woman” she said “When I pee I pee like a woman I don’t understand when you say I’m a man or I have a deep voice I know I’m a female so there’s no question for me “I have to find a way to deflect (the questioning of her gender) so instead of allowing it to all be negative I turn it into a positive My family’s support system is fantastic” After Semenya won the 2009 world title as a 19-year-old tests reportedly revealed that she was hyper androgynous resulting in her body producing an abnormally high amount of testosterone which makes her more powerful than her rivals An International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) rule limiting the amount of naturally occurring functional testosterone for female athletes appeared to have narrowed Semenya’s prospects but the IAAF’s Hyperandrogenism Regulations were suspended for two years in 2015 by the Court of Arbitration for Sport allowing Semenya to make a comeback Her time of 1:5527 in the Diamond League meeting in Monaco this month was the fastest in a women’s 800m for almost a decade and there will be an expectation that she could take down the longest-standing athletics world record set by Czech Jarmila Kratochvilova in 1983 Semenya has made a late decision to add a tilt at 1500m glory to her London programme setting up an intriguing clash with world-record holder Genzebe Dibaba from Ethiopia Semenya has run the distance only once this year winning the South African student championship in April but she is the reigning African champion from Durban last year where she set a personal best of 4:0119 For all the latest Sports
