IEP Chandigarh, January 24
Punjab Revenue Minister Bram Shanker Jimpa said that under the dynamic leadership of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, the Punjab government will continue the public welfare centric initiatives without discrimination. He expressed gratitude to the Chief Minister for distributing the compensation amount of Rs. 32 crore to the flood victims of Fazilka district few days back and said that this amount should have been distributed by the previous government but they did not spend even a single penny as the compensation.
Jimpa further said that the previous governments only indulged in rhetoric while on ground level, no work was done for the welfare of the people. Whereas now the MLAs and Ministers of the government led by Bhagwant Mann hail from ordinary families and understand the difficulties of common people. He said that the traditional political parties have looted Punjab on a large scale but present government will continue to carry out public welfare works on a priority basis without any discrimination so that Punjab becomes a prosperous state again.
He said that the determination and sincerity of the present government towards the common people of Punjab is reflected in the fact that during the first 9 months of the financial year 2022-23, Rs. 125 crore have been distributed as compensation for crop damages and for the welfare of farmers. It includes more than Rs. 5 crore compensation for house damages in natural disaster. He said that the State Government is committed to serving every section of the society.
