CM says decision to implement 'One MLA, one pension' will revolutionise and reform the Indian political system

It is our humble endeavour to realise dreams of national heroes

Will save Rs 100 crore during the tenure of incumbent government

Chandigarh, August 13:Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today said that the notification implementing 'One MLA one pension' in Punjab will revolutionize and reform the Indian political system. " It is a humble initiative by the Aam Aadmi party government to realise the dreams of our freedom fighters and national heroes", he said.

In a statement issued here, the Chief Minister said that our great freedom fighters had dreamed of a class -less democracy where elected representatives will work as the real servants of people and ensure their well being. But in the last 75 years these elected representatives have turned into political executives by drawing extravagant salaries and pensions from the state exchequer. Bhagwant Mann said that the entire burden of this facility extended to these leaders was met by taxpayers. Their money was misused to fill the pockets of these leaders instead of being used for public welfare.

He said that it is also a humble tribute by his government to the great freedom fighters and iconic heroes of Indian independence movement who had laid their lives for the nation to create a society based on equality. Bhagwant Mann said that his government will make every possible effort to cherish their aspirations and restore the glory of state as ‘Rangla Punjab’.

The Chief Minister said that the state government has fulfilled a major promise made with the people of state. He said that politics is service of people adding that while doing it there is no need for the huge pensions for the MLAs and that too for every term. Bhagwant Mann said that MLAs have entered politics willingly to serve the people, so they have no moral responsibility to claim multiple pensions in exchange for this service. The Punjab government is expected to save around Rs 100 crore during its current tenure with this historic initiative, added the Chief Minister.

Bhagwant Mann government takes major decision to make Basmati Rice, export worthy

Bans use of 10 insecticides which were a constraint in the export of Basmati Rice

Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal terms decision in the welfare of Basmati producer farmers of Punjab

Chandigarh, August 13:The Punjab Government led by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has issued directions to stop the sale, stock and distribution of some insecticides on Basmati crop in the state which were a constraint in the export of Basmati Rice. Agriculture Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal who had already issued strict directions to the officials of the Agriculture Department to keep a vigil on the sale of duplicate and substandard pesticides and take necessary strict action against such practices, has said that now these directions have been issued in the interest of farmers to make their Basmati Rice export worthy.

Divulging the details the Agriculture Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal said that this decision is taken because use of banned insecticides is not in the interest of Basmati rice growers. He said that the sale, stock distribution and use of insecticides namely: Acephate, Buprofezin, Chloropyriphos, Methamidophos, Propiconazole Thiamethoxam, Profenofos, Isoprothiolane, Carbendazim Tricyclazole were being potential constraint in export and consumption of rice, especially Basmati rice. ‘The above-mentioned pesticides are banned in Punjab for a period of sixty days so that good quality basmati rice with no residual effect can be produced, added Dhaliwal.

The Agriculture Minister said that as per the experts there is a risk of higher pesticide residues than Maxium Residual Level (MRL) fixed by the competent authority in the basmati rice grains on account of use of these agro-chemicals.

Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal has also disclosed that the Punjab Rice Millers and Exporters Association has also reported that many samples got tested by them contain the residue value of these much above the MRL values in Basmati Rice. The Association requested for ban of these agrochemicals to save the heritage Basmati produce of Punjab, and to ensure hassle free export of basmati rice to other countries.

Punjab Agriculture Minister further said that the Punjab Agricultural University (PAU). Ludhiana has recommended alternative agrochemicals which are low in residue effect to control pests of basmati rice are available in the market.
