Why this sudden obsession with Rajiv Gandhi, @officeofssbadal ? Could be because you’re jealous of him? After all, he became Prime Minister at the age of 40 and you haven’t even become Chief Minister at 57! That could explain your manic delusions vis-a-vis Rajiv.
Had visited Ropar today to assess the damage and interact with families who have been impacted. I assure everyone that we are committed to restoring normalcy in flood-hit regions at the earliest and my government will take all possible measures for the same.
Have announced ₹100 cr for emergency relief & rehabilitation measures for flood-hit areas in the State. Special Girdawari will be conducted as soon as water-level recedes to ensure due compensation to farmers. Have asked DCs to extend all necessary help to the affected families.
Visited IIT Ropar to see the damage due to floods in Satluj. Met the Director & students. We are making arrangements for transportation of students and their board & lodging in Kisan Bhawan, Chandigarh. Have deputed Divisional Commissioner to coordinate the relief work.
Visited Ropar to take stock of the flood situation. 696 people have been rescued from 71 villages till now. @NDRFHQ & @PunjabGovtIndia have deployed 13 boats, 2 divers & 29 JCBs to expedite rescue operations. Have directed DC to take all necessary steps to assist the public.
Media is the 4th pillar of democracy & has played a key role in nation-building. As a small token of gratitude, I have decided to extend benefits of #SarbatBimaYojna to all accredited journalists or yellow cardholders. The requisite premium will be borne by the state govt.
Congratulations to Assistant Inspector General, Ashish Kapoor, for winning both singles & doubles titles in Tennis during the World Police & Fire Games 2019 in Chengdu, China. You've made Punjab & India proud and proved @PunjabPoliceInd is truly a force to reckon with. 👏👏
Impact of heavy rains in catchment areas of rivers is being closely monitored. All DCs have been directed to keep contingency plans ready. Minor flooding has been reported in some areas of village Burj and NDRF has been summoned. Likely to reach Ropar in the next 2 hours.
Chaudhary Devi Lal confirmed in the Haryana Assembly in Mar 1978 that your father had issued the notification regarding land acquisition for SYL & later accepted a cheque of ₹1 crore. You have no right to speak on SYL. Leave it to me & I'll ensure Punjab's water stays in Punjab
Ironic to see @officeofssbadal advising me on protecting Punjab's interests. It was I who brought in 'The Punjab Termination of Agreements Act, 2004', abrogating the inter-state agreement to protect Punjab. Let me not say more. Unlike you Punjab is always first for me.
There is no need for Punjab govt to participate in any meeting on the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal. I warn Pb CM @capt_amarinder not to succumb to any pressure & bargain away the river waters of Punjab. The SAD stand is clear: Pb doesn't hv even a single drop of water to spare.
As per the Meteorological Department, Punjab may witness heavy rainfall in the next 48-72 hours. Have directed all DCs & senior officials to be ready on war footing to deal with the situation on ground. #DisasterManagement Group has been activated to take precautionary measures.
Remembering #AtalBihariVajpayee ji on his first death anniversary. My tributes to a great statesman, a legendary politician & an outstanding parliamentarian. I'll always treasure the memories from the Dakala bypolls of 1970, when he campaigned for me in my first election.
Heartiest congratulations to all Armed Forces personnel who have been decorated with various gallantry awards on the 73rd #IndependenceDay. Remembering our fallen heroes who served the motherland till their last breath. I join a grateful nation in thanking you. #ਸੁਤੰਤਰਤਾਦਿਵਸ
Greetings to my fellow Indians on our 73rd Independence Day. Today we remember the heroes of our freedom struggle who laid down their lives for our independence. This #IndependenceDay, let us rededicate ourselves to building the India of their dreams. #JaiHind. #ਸੁਤੰਤਰਤਾਦਿਵਸ
