Round 40 Punjab govt academics will now guard outstanding checkpoints of Phagwara in Kapurthala district between nine pm and 1 am to forestall unlawful sand mining within the space, the state govt stated in an order.
This order comes a month after the state revoked a identical order that deployed 24 faculty academics to protect distilleries in Gurdaspur.
Academics shall be posted at outstanding police checkpoints in Kapurthala district’s Phagwara town to forestall unlawful sand mining, the brand new order says.
Phagwara’s Sub-Divisional Justice of the Peace and senior officers of civil and police management, in a verbal exchange trade, have been knowledgeable that the academics shall be posted on the checkpoints between 9pm and 1am and shall be accompanied through a police group.
Calling the order “shameful”, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has slammed the Congress govt within the state for involving govt academics in non-teaching actions.
Birthday party spokesperson and previous Training Minister of Punjab Daljit Singh Cheema tweeted: “After distilleries now Punjab government deputes academics at more than a few police nakas to forestall sand mining. Timings from nine PM to one AM. One fails to keep in mind that why over and over again government is exposing academics to liquor & sand mafia? This shameful order must be withdrawn right away.”
Closing month, the Punjab govt was once hugely criticised for a debatable order issued through the place of business of the Gurdaspur deputy commissioner that deployed 24 academics at liquor factories to control the provision of alcohol and was once forced to revoke the order.
“The officer who handed the orders must face motion. Sale of liquor isn’t the one factor that the Congress govt must be obsessive about,” Daljit Singh Cheema had stated.
