Punjab Govt’s callousness worsened flood situation in state: Sunil Jakhar

Chandigarh, July 11, 2023 (Yes Punjab News)
Expressing concern over extreme hardships being faced by people across state due to floods, Punjab BJP President Sunil Jakhar on Wednesday targetted state government for its lack of planning and preparation despite clear warnings by Meterological Department before the monsoon season.

Lackadaisical and irresponsible attitude of state government has visibly worsened the flood situation in most parts and people of Punjab are being made to face hardships for no fault of theirs, Jakhar said asking state government to immediately release compensation to tune of Rs. 20,000 per acre to farmers for crop damage. Government should not wait for Girdawari and provide immediate assistance to all those affected, Jakhar demanded.

In a statement issued here, Jakhar said that there were alerts issued by Met Department but state administration slept over it and as a result there has been avoidable loss of life and property. The Chief Minister did not have time to hold one single meeting and the Chief Secretary only sprung into action only after Punjab was in grip of deep waters, Jakhar added.

The Chief Minister has responsibility and duty towards 3 crore Punjabis, but it is regretful that he seems to have forgotten them after taking their votes to come in powe. That CM chose campaigning in Panchkula to taking stock of affected people’s needs in Mohali and Dera Bassi shows where his priorities lie, Jakhar rued.
