IEP Chandigarh, March 7
Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann led Punjab Government has neither bad intentions nor flawed policies. In Punjab, there is absolute law and order and no one who tampers with law and order will be spared. It was stated by Punjab Cabinet Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer while participating in the debate on the governor’s address during the ongoing budget session of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha today.
Recounting the historic achievements of the state government in six months, Meet Hayer said that in the first six months, their government has achieved many milestones, which the previous governments could not achieve even in five years.
The minister further said that in six months the government has provided 600 units of free electricity, more than 500 Aam Aadmi clinics, freed illegal encroachments, sand is being given at Rs 5.50 per feet, more than 26000 government jobs provided, implemented one MLA, one pension etc. Shortly, the target is to provide sand from 150 public sites and 100 commercial sites at Rs 5.50 per feet. Daily labourers in Punjab are getting employment at mining sites to fill sand. He said that the contracts of commercial sites given by previous governments in Punjab will expire soon.
The state government will start providing sand from 100 commercial sites at the rate of Rs 5.50 per feet to the common people. Now people are getting sand from 32 public sites through tractor-trolley at Rs 5.50 per feet. It is also a target to increase the number of public sites to 150. The Chief Minister inaugurated the public site at Mao Sahib, and from there 200 trolleys are being filled daily. Due to this the labourers also earn well in a day. With this decision in Punjab, the labourer would get reasonable remuneration with the decision of manual excavation.
Meet Hayer said that there is a rule of law in Punjab and the opposition parties are maligning the name of Punjab, while Punjab ranks 17th in terms of crime rate. Presenting the data of the national criminal record, he said that the crime rate is very high in the states like Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
Meet Hayer said that the Congress MLAs sitting in the opposition do not leave a single opportunity to defame Punjab without any reason and facts, but their own party enforced President rule in Punjab for eight times, Sikh massacre in Delhi and black days in Punjab. Gangster culture in Punjab is a gift given by the previous governments.
