(Ludhiana)SAD Slashes Capt Govt For Not Distributing Ration to Migrants

SAD Asks Punjab govt to waive off power bills of all Blue card holders for four months
SAD Tells govt to honour promise made to industrial sector by waiving off fixed power charges for period of lockdown instead of deferring them
Addressing a press conference senior SAD leaders S. Maheshinder Singh Grewal and S. Sharanjit Singh Dhillon said Bharat Bhushan Ashu was directly responsible for the crisis in Ludhiana. “Even though migrant labourers are most in need of food relief, Ashu did not distribute any food material to them despite the fact that the centre had despatched wheat and pulses for 1.40 crore people to Punjab. It is because of this that labourers took to the streets in Punjab and endangered themselves as well as other citizens by flouting social distancing norms”.
The leaders also asked the chief minister to direct officials to distribute ration on merit without being influenced by Congressmen. They said genuine beneficiaries were suffering because Congressmen had commandeered the distribution operation. “Blue cards of thousands of genuine beneficiaries have been cut and ration is being diverted to Congress leaders to distribute as per their whims and fancies to their supporters.
