Punjab Assembly holds 2 day session to discuss SYL canal and other issues

Chandigarh: In view of the two-day session of the Punjab Assembly starting today, state Health Minister Balbir Singh said that this session is organised to discuss the issues being faced by the public in Punjab.
The session has been called by the AAP government amid a political row over the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal following the October 4 Supreme Court order asking the Centre to look into the mediation process.
"This session is to discuss the issues being faced by the public in Punjab. The people want to know what the government is doing and working on. This Governor (of Punjab) has written more letters than all governors put together," Balbir Singh said.
Meanwhile, Punjab Congress President Amarinder Singh Raja Warring said that the government has not informed them about the topics to be discussed in the assembly session.
"The list of businesses has not been given to us. The government has not told us what it wants to discuss. We will hold a CLP meeting shortly and take a decision. The governor has called this session unconstitutional," Amarinder Singh said.
Earlier on Thursday, the Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Legislative Assembly, Partap Singh Bajwa asked CM Bhagwant Mann to make a statement in the Punjab assembly session on 37,100 government jobs provided to youth.
"A comprehensive breakdown of job openings, categorised by department, with clarification on whether these positions were pre-existing or newly sanctioned after the AAP government assumed power," he stated.
He further said that a clear delineation of the exact date on which the recruitment process for these positions was formally initiated.
"An unambiguous identification of the agency responsible for overseeing this process, whether it is the Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC), the Punjab Subordinate Services Selection Board (PSSSB), or an alternative administrative mechanism," he stated.
