After inaugurating sewa kendra at Attari, deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal announced commencement and functioning of 113 sewa kendras in the city along with 900 rural sewa kendras.

The deputy CM said that these kendras will help people to avail government services in a corruption-free and hassle-free manner. He said that working of sewa kendras will be efficient and transparent. There will be frequent inspections to check the efficiency.

Badal said that it is a red letter day in the history of Amritsar as hundreds of sewa kendras have begun operations. After the announcement, Badal slammed Congress and said that they have ignored the interests of Punjab.

“Congress’ history is replete with instances of discrimination against Punjab, despite the fact that Punjab has always been in the forefront of defending the nation as well as contributing to its economy,” said Badal.

“Captain Amarinder Singh, who is now so vociferously supporting the cause of farmers and indulging in chest-thumping on the issue, is the one who had levied hefty power bills during his tenure and committed atrocities upon them,” he added.

Badal said, “It is Congress only that violated the sanctity of Darbar Sahib by attacking it with tanks, so how can its aristocratic leader, Captain Amarinder Singh, be trusted to safeguard the interests of Punjab.” Talking about the overall development of Punjab, he said that the SAD-BJP government has always stood for the holistic development of the state. He said that their government has taken pro-people initiatives and is concerned about all sections of the society.

At the event, cabinet minister Gulzar Singh Ranike, DIG AK Mittal, SSP Rakesh Kaushal, additional deputy commissioner Tejinderpal Singh Sandhu and SDM Rajesh Sharma, were also present.
