She said maintaining consistency throughout the year was the key mantra that helped her in learning every topic precisely. “I never missed any class and I had prepared a subjectwise timetable which had no fixed hours. Sometimes I used to study for three to four hours, while some days just one hour. I strongly believe that good marks cannot be attained by studying at the last hour. Instead, the last days should only be utilised for revision and maintaining pace in every topic,” she said. She further said she was interested in accounts, thus, she has decided to pursue her higher studies in finance. On being questioned, what she 1st Palkit Sidhu with her parents in Jalandhar on Friday.

Via his FB page, the MLA levelled allegations of corruption against ADC (G) Major Amit Sareen, a woman superintendent and staff of the Secretary RTA, but all of them took umbrage against the MLA for trying to harass them unduly while on duty. The ADC, against whom the MLA levelled allegations of quickly In reaction, DC office employees to go on strike from Monday clear a complaint matter against a travel agent, reacted sharply saying that “a genuine agent was being wrongly victimised. A show-cause notice against him had been withdrawn only after scrutinising his entire record”. As the MLA and his supporters alleged that the ADC cleared his file on his dayoff, the ADC said it was done on a working day. Reacting to the MLA’s allegations, he said, “When we clear all the backlog of Suwidha Centre on Saturdays, do all VIPs perform duty on holidays? So, such accusations are actually misplaced.” The entire incident happened in the office of Deputy Commissioner Jaspreet Singh. The ADC later even got released a video and issued a press note to clear the air. Pawan Kumar Verma and Jagdish Chander Saluja, district president and general secretary, respectively, of the Punjab State Distt (DC) Office Employees’ Association issued a memorandum wherein they condemned today’s action by the MLA. “The entire episode has led to spoiling of our image and we all feel insecure. If the MLA had any issue with us, we were there to resolve the matter, but his attitude was not right. He should not c m y b have gone live on FB without first giving us a hearing and levelled corruption allegations against us. He could have checked all record and manuals first. If he still felt unconvinced, he could have got a complaint lodged against us with the Deputy Commissioner or even the Divisional Commissioner,” they alleged. Meanwhile, Angural levelled charges of bribery against the woman superintendent. He said elderly and other people from his constituency were being harassed unduly by the staff and made to make repeated rounds of their offices for work. Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had earlier urged all the MLAs not to embarrass employees in such a manner.
