JALANDHAR : Local Government Minister Punjab Navjot Singh Sidhu today said that the Cabinet Sub Committee on mining constituted by the Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh would submit its report to the government shortly.

Interacting with the media persons here today, the Minister said that the Cabinet Sub Committee would expose every wrong doing, if any, in this field and recommend stern action against the guilty. He said that for submitting a foolproof report they would approach all the stakeholders in the field of mining and listen to them before filing the report. Sidhu said that the report would be submitted to the state government within a month after the Vidhan Sabha session of the state assembly was over.

Dwelling on another issue, the Minister said that the Captain government would herald a new era of unprecedented development in the state for which the wheels have been set in motion. He said that right from starting the non-functional Sewage Treatment plants (STPs) to ensuring canal water supply in major towns besides covering 67 services of the Local government under the e-governance, setting up of Fire Directorate and solving the problem of open drains with the help of NERI, a number of steps were being initiated by the Local government department to facilitate the people. Likewise, Mr. Sidhu said that the sewage project that was lingering on in many towns since long would also be completed shortly.

Making a scathing attack on SAD supremo Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal, the Minister said that he has no moral right to hold ‘Poll Khol Rallies’ in the state especially when the people of Punjab have given four back to back crushing defeats to them within a year. He said that in last one year, Punjab was ahead in each and every field under the dynamic leadership of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. Mr. Sidhu said that Akali government was notorious for ‘90% mewa and 10% sewa’ but the Captain government has won the hearts of people by dedicatedly serving the people to ensure all round development of the state.
