In the High Court in Auckland today self styled Sikh leader and JP Daljit Singh faces 20 charges of forging documents to change residential addresses showing that people from places like Timaru and Tauranga appeared to live in the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board area. Daljit Singh was a candidate in the first super city election in 2010.
Gurinder Atwall, Davinder Singh, Mandeep Singh, Virender Singh, Paramjit Singh, Malkeet Singh and Harmesh Singh also face forgery charges.
Crown prosecutor Robin McCoubrey told the jury of 10 women and two men that ".... he and his associates . . . carried out a fraud in the election system to try and assist Daljit Singh,". McCoubrey said that at the time the Electoral Enrolment Centre (EEC) made it "rather easy" for people to go online and change their electoral address.
He said Daljit Singh and Atwall, who he called Singh's "right-hand man," used the names of Sikhs to go on to the EEC's website.
Once there they would change the address, to the local board area where Daljit Singh was standing, and then download a declaration form which they signed and submitted. To Read Full News Click on the heading on top.

BHOPAL: The Navratra festivities ended in tragedy when 115 pilgrims including women and children were killed and more than 80 injured in a stampede on a bridge leading to the historic Ratangarh temple in Datia district of Madhya Pradesh on Sunday. It was a disastrous re-run of the 2006 stampede when more than 50 pilgrims had got washed away falling in panic into the Sindh river off the same bridge in 2006.
Eyewitnesses said over-crowding of the bridge, which is 500m long and 10m wide, caused one of its railings to snap, which led some people to shout that the bridge was collapsing. With more than a lakh of people for the pilgrimage, this set off panic with people trying to rush to safety, which caused the stampede.

Roaring at more than 200 kmph, winds ripped through homes and tore down trees. A cargo ship was feared sunk, but the death toll of 23 stood in stark contrast to nearly 10,000 killed in 1990 when the super cyclone had struck an almost unprepared eastern coastline.

I fully agree with him. Change is the sign of a growing country. New Zealand is a developing country and development brings change. Earlier big supermarket giants like The Warehouse, Neol Leeming, Food stuffs etc were following monopolistic practises.
