Captain’s Thali now for Rs 13

Punjab finance minister Manpreet Badal said on Sunday that the state government had fixed a target of getting at least 12 industrial houses to set up units in state in the first year itself and achieve a figure of 60 by the time the Congress government’s tenure ends in 2022.

During his first visit to his assembly constituency, Bathinda Urban, after winning the February 4 state elections, Badal said the Congress government was “highly sensitive” to generating employment in the state. He reiterated the government’s “resolve” to end VIP culture.
Speaking at a gathering, Badal asked the deputy commissioner not to accompany him during his visits to the city. Earlier, the entire district administration used to accompany former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, deputy CM Sukhbir Badal and Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal. “The DC, SSP or officials of other departments will be called or requested to come only when there will be a need for their presence,” said Manpreet.
