In a letter to the central vigilance department, Bains said the collapse of this solar power floating project, being built at a cost of about 92 crore, is no small incident. “There should be an investigation,” he wrote. Bains, MLA from Anandpur Sahib, posted a copy of his letter dated April 30 on X on Sunday, claiming there was no action even after a week against any official and no statement about the actual losses.

The minister said that an accident can not only affect the reputation of the country but also endanger the lives of people. “Due to the collapse of the project, the people of the area want to know the whole truth. Whose fault is it in this whole incident should also be clear in the vigilance investigation,” he wrote.
