The convention would focus on deteriorating law and order, increasing police excesses, high incidence of taxes in the state, lackadaisical approach of the police and administration in the Faridkot minor girl kidnapping case and delay by the Centre in the announcement of minimum support price for wheat, an official spokesman said here.

The decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the Morcha which include People's Party of Punjab, the Communist Party of India, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the Akali Dal (Longowal).

THE MOST VENOMOUS

Late on Wednesday night, my smartphone flashed the caller's name 'Salim Khan'. I presumed it was Khan wanting to inform me of yet another exciting snake rescue or a tragic snakebite. But my heart sank. It was not Khan but a panicky lady blabbering at the other end. I thought my worst fears had come true: after having rescued hundreds of venomous snakes from tricky spots, I thought this time Khan had himself been bitten by one and that his relatives were informing me. However, it was not exactly a venomous snake that had struck Khan. It was MAN, a species that has proved deadlier than the most toxic of slithering serpents.  Writes VIKRAM JIT SINGH
