BRITISHERS LOOTED INDIA CONTINUOUSLY, BUT CONGRESS AND BJP IN STINTS: SAYS CM

EXHORTS PEOPLE TO OUST CONGRESS AND BJP FOR CARVING OUT NEW HIMACHAL

SAYS QUALITY EDUCATION PANACEA OF ALL ILLS FACED BY THE COUNTRYMEN

Hamirpur, June 11: Slamming Congress and BJP for looting the country, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today said that Britishers enslaved India for 200 years but after independence Congress and BJP made us slave in stints of five year each.

Addressing an impressive gathering here today, the Chief Minister said that Congress and BJP played friendly match with each other for plundering the public wealth. He said that like Britishers they also robbed the people of their rights but people had no other option except electing them again and again. Bhagwant Mann said that but now in form of AAP people have found a catalyst of change in the country and people are rejecting BJP and Congress by opting for AAP.

The Chief Minister said that the winds of change that started from Delhi under Arvind Kejriwal had then engulfed Punjab and now it is ready to sweep the entire country. He said that AAP is ready to storm Himachal Pradesh adding that Congress and BJP will be routed out from the hill state. Bhagwant Mann urged the people to oust Congress and BJP for carving out a new and prosperous Himachal.

Training his guns against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, the Chief Minister said that even after crossing 50 years of age, the scion of Nehru-Gandhi family is still a youth leader. He said that a youth is debarred from getting government job after crossing 37 years of age but on the other hand a 94 year old person contests the poll for becoming MLA or MP which is completely unjustified. Bhagwant Mann said that AAP is pivot of change in the country a reflection of which is that more than 70 MLAs in Punjab are less than 35 years of age.

The Chief Minister said that while the successive governments had turned schools into Mid day meal buildings, AAP governments at Delhi and Punjab have transformed them into temple of learnings from where job givers and not job seekers are being produced. Describing quality education as panacea of all ills, he said that it is a powerful tool which can only transform the lives of people. Bhagwant Mann said that people should support AAP to empower a common man through quality education as being done in Delhi and Punjab.

The Chief Minister said that poverty will not be eliminated merely through lip service of leaders. But, he said that education is the key that can pull people out of poverty by raising their standard of living. Bhagwant Mann said that Himachal wants an honest and workable government like Delhi and Punjab for transforming the hill state.

Striking an emotional chord with people of Himachal Pradesh, the Chief Minister recalled the days when he visited the state. He said that Dev Bhoomi Himachal Pradesh is a blessed land and he is fortunate to be here. Bhagwant Mann also said that the youth of Himachal Pradesh is very talented and the time has come when their enormous potential is tapped for the progress of state and prosperity of its people.

Three member committee to probe into scam of handing over prime panchayat land to colonisers by former Minister Bajwa: Dhaliwal

Says Bajwa connived with colonisers to give prime land of department on meagre prices

Amritsar/Chandigarh, June 11:Panchayat and Rural Development Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal today said that a three member committee will probe into the scam of handing over prime panchayat land to colonisers by former Congress Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa.

The Minister while addressing a press conference said that the former Rural Development Minister Bajwa had illegally allowed selling of Panchayat land in village Bhagtupura in district Amritsar even though Model Code of Conduct was in force. He said that the letter for this permission was issued on March 11,2022 whereas Congress was trounced badly in the results declared a day before. Dhaliwal said that the former Minister and Congress leader had no right to grant permission at that time.

The Minister said that these Panchayati pathways and water channels were creating a hindrance in Alfa International city colony which is spread over around 150 acres. He said that an Akali sarpanch had also moved a resolution for selling them in 2015. Dhaliwal said that former Congress Minister had connived with the coloniser and permitted selling of these pathways and water channels at meagre price of Rs 43 lakh per acre whereas the market rate was RS 7.5 crore.

The Minister said that water channels and path ways together constituted 32 kanal and 16 marle land adding that due to this permission state has suffered a loss of Rs 28 crore. He said that Bajwa had no authority as Model Code of Conduct was in place at that time. Dhaliwal said that a three member team including Assistant Development Commissioner Amit Kumar, Assistant Director Rural Development Sarabjit Singh and Senior Law Officer Joharinder Singh Ahluwalia will conduct the probe into the matter.

The Minister said that all the colonies developed in last 15 years will be scrutinised and government pathways will be cleared. He said that Punjab government has so far evicted 5500 acres of panchayti land from illegal occupation. Dhaliwal said that the Punjab government is committed for providing clean, corruption free and transparent administration to people.
