AMRITSAR: The Punjab government has withdrawn the security provided to 424 retired police officers and religious and political leaders.
Earlier the newly formed Bhagwant Mann's government in Punjab said his government will remove VIP culture treatment in jails and convert them into administrative blocks.
He said that the victims staying in jails were enjoying VIP like hospitalities where they used the place for resting, playing badminton, tennis, watching TV and were passing a relaxed time.
Thus he ruled that he would put a stop to this lavish living in the jails as he underlined the argument that how could a victim enjoy so many personal privileges when he/ she was found to be a culprit.
Now the government has removed the security cover of 424 retired police officers as well as religious and political leaders.
The Punjab Aam Admi Party government has made a significant bold step in implementing this great decision.
As reported, 10 personnel tasked with the security of Dera Radha Soami, Beas, are also said to be removed. The Punjab government has been striking with these dynamic steps since it came into power this year.
Last April the government had withdrawn the security of 184 former ministers, MLAs and private protectors.
Again from Giani Harpreet Singh at least half of the security had been removed.
Only last month the securities of 122 former ministers and MLAs had been withdrawn. Likewise, the securities of Former ministers Manpreet Singh Badal, Raj Kumar Verka, Bharat Bhushan Ashu and the family of former Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi were removed.
Earlier Mann made significant points about removing such VIP cultures of big govt. officials who were found to be accused and grabbed them all under lawful investigations and decisions. And with this removal of security covers, he had shown how committed his govt. is towards its effective and made- for- people govt.
In a successful manner, his government collected 710 mobile phones from jails in a special drive that was conducted last time and with this new development, his govt. has jumped another milestone to achieve.
