Jalandhar: Punjab Pradesh Congress vice president and Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjeet Singh on Sunday criticised the SAD-BJP government for using government employees to distribute booklets highlighting the ‘false claims of development’ during last nine years.
“It is total misuse of official machinery, where government employees were forced to do the Akali’s propaganda work”, Rana said in a statement issued here on Sunday.
Rana Gurjeet said that with the government employees being deputed for the job of distributing the booklets, normal work in the offices has suffered leading to harassment to general public.
The Congress vice president maintained that had there been any real development carried out by the Akalis during the last about ten years, they would not need to use booklets to tell people. “The development speaks for itself and you do not need to print and publish booklets and force it on people”, he said.
The Kapurthala MLA said that the SAD should better use its party workers for the false propaganda. “Since the SAD leadership knew that nobody was going to entertain their party workers, they were forcing the government employees do this job”, he said, while appealing the government employees to resist these diktats where they were forced to carry out Akali propaganda.
Rana also asserted that the development needs no propaganda, Rana pointed out, people still recall the great work done by Capt Amarinder Singh as the Chief Minister of Punjab, whether it was procurement process, repealing of the water sharing agreements, introduction of BT cotton etc.
