WILL BRING RESOLUTION IN STATE ASSEMBLY TO OPPOSE ‘AGNIPATH SCHEME’- SAYS CM

ASSERTS THAT THIS WHIMSICAL AND IRRATIONAL MOVE OF THE NDA GOVERNMENT WHICH WILL DESTROY THE BASIC FABRIC OF THE INDIAN ARMY

Chandigarh, June 28:Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today said that the state government will soon bring a resolution in the state assembly to oppose the ‘Agnipath’ scheme proposed by the NDA government at the centre.

“Agnipath is a whimsical and irrational move of the NDA government which will destroy the basic fabric of the Indian Army” said the Chief Minister while replying to issue raised by Leader of Opposition Partap Singh Bajwa during zero hour.

The Chief Minister said that this is another illogical move by the NDA government to ruin the future of the youth of the country. He said that no one, except BJP leaders, have ever understood the merits of schemes like demonetisation, GST, draconian farm laws and other adding that ‘Agnipath’ is an addition to such baseless moves, which no one is able to understand. Bhagwant Mann said that it is unfortunate and unbelievable that a youth will join the Army after attaining age of 17 years and superannuate merely after four years at age of 21.

The Chief Minister said that ironically the youth who will be serving the country at prime of his youth will not get any pension or other benefits for this service. Bhagwant Mann said that this is a huge loss for the youth of the country who want to serve their motherland, either in freezing cold or boiling hot temperature, by joining the Armed forces on basis of their physical ability. He said that ‘Agnipath’ reflects the sorry state of affairs in the country as the party in power at centre is recklessly running its affairs without applying mind.

The Chief Minister said that this is grave injustice with the youth of the country which is not at all acceptable at any cost. Bhagwant Mann said that the state government vehemently opposes this senseless move of the Union government and resolution to oppose this will be brought very soon. He solicited the support and cooperation of all the parties to oppose this move with full might to secure the future of the youth.

NO RIVER POLLUTION TO BE ALLOWED IN PROPOSED TEXTILE PARK AT KOOM KALAN- CM

SAYS PROJECT WILL HELP IN ATTRACTING INVESTMENTS AND OPENING NEW VISTAS OF EMPLOYMENT FOR THE YOUTH

Chandigarh, June 28:Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday said that no river pollution will be allowed in proposed Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel Parks at Koom Kalan (Ludhiana) and all environmental clearances and norms as fixed by Centre and State Pollution Control Boards will be adhered to.

Replying to a call attention moved by MLA Hardeep Singh Mundian, the Chief Minister said that Government of India (GoI) has approved the scheme for setting up of seven PM Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel Parks (PM MITRA) in partnership with the interested State Governments. He said that under this scheme proposal for setting up of Textile Park at Koom Kalan has been sent to the Government of India. Bhagwant Mann categorically said that this project will be subject to all environmental clearances and norms as fixed by Centre and State Pollution Control Boards.

The Chief Minister asserted that the environmental laws will be followed to ensure that there is no pollution of river water or any sort of health hazard for the people. He said that the ambitious scheme will help in attracting investments on one hand and opening new vistas of employment for the youth on another. Bhagwant Mann said that one of the basic requirement for the project is that the interested state government should have ready availability of contiguous and encumbrance free land parcel of 1000 acres for this project.

The Chief Minister said that Punjab Government has already identified land parcel in Tehsil Koom Kalan (Ludhiana) for the above said project. Bhagwant Mann said that total 463.4 acres of government land in Villages Garhi Fazal, Haider Nagar and Garcha has already been transferred under Optimum Utilization of Vacant Government Land (OUVGL) Scheme to PUDA and 493.99 acres of panchayat land in village Sekhowal, Sailkiana and Salempur has also been transferred to PUDA after making payments to panchayats. He said that thus PUDA has already acquired 957.39 acres and the remaining land will be acquired shortly so that the requirement of the 1000 acres land can be fulfilled.
