Even as the Punjab government has decided to shut down 1,647 sewa kendras across the state, Punjab Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) co-president Aman Arora has written a letter to chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh, seeking his permission for launching mobile sewa kendras in his constituency at his own cost.
Talking to the media here, Arora, Sunam MLA, said these ‘sewa kendras on wheels’ will provide people access to online portal giving citizen-centric services without charging any penny.
“I don’t want any financial or infrastructural support from the government, but just the access to the online portal from the government side,” he said.
He said after the government’s decision to shut down majority of sewa kendras in the state, only 3 of 24 kendras in his constituency will remain operational. “People will now have to go to multiple offices for their old age pension and other works.”
He said he had written a letter to the CM in this regard on December 23. “If the government gives its nod to my proposal, we will prove that sewa kendras could have been run effectively with a passion to serve the people,” he added.
