“Congress Faces Backlash for Disrupting Punjab Governor’s Speech on Government Achievements: Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema Condemns Insult to Democracy”

In a shocking turn of events during the opening of the budget session in the Punjab Vidhan Sabha, the Congress party has come under heavy criticism for attempting to obstruct the speech of Governor Banwari Lal Purohit. Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema condemned the Congress’s actions, labeling it as an insult to the August House and an attempt to suppress the achievements of the Punjab government.

The disruption occurred as Governor Purohit began highlighting the accomplishments of the state government, prompting concerns from the Congress party about the live broadcast disseminating this information to the public. Finance Minister Cheema expressed disappointment over the Congress party’s disregard for the longstanding traditions and norms of the budget session, where the Governor’s speech marks the commencement of proceedings.

Cheema accused the Congress party of prioritizing cheap fame over democratic principles, highlighting their departure from their own history of advocating for longer sessions to debate public issues. The Finance Minister emphasized that the Congress’s attempt to obstruct the speech was fueled by their inability to showcase significant achievements during their previous five years in office.

Linking the incident to the farmers’ struggle against the three farm laws, Cheema questioned the Congress party’s commitment to the cause. He pointed out that the former Chief Minister, Capt. Amarinder Singh, who has now joined the BJP, failed to support farmers during the drafting of the controversial laws. Cheema contrasted this with the Aam Aadmi Party’s strong stance in support of the farmers, both during and after the struggle.

The Finance Minister reiterated Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann’s unwavering support for farmers, both in the past and the future. He highlighted the immediate steps taken by the government, including a Rs. 1 crore aid for the family of farmer Shubhakaran Singh, who lost his life during the farmers’ protest. Cheema assured that a thorough investigation into the incident was underway, with strict legal action promised against those found guilty.

Cheema outlined several achievements of the Punjab government under Chief Minister Mann, including the introduction of a new sports policy, job opportunities for sportspersons, efforts to promote sports, acquisition of GVK Thermal plant, establishment of Schools of Eminence under Shiksha Kranti, and the delivery of 300 units of free electricity to domestic consumers monthly. He also highlighted the commitment to providing stable employment, reverse migration, and the creation of over 42,000 government jobs for the youth.

The attempt by the Congress party to disrupt the Governor’s speech has sparked widespread condemnation, with Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema leading the charge against what he sees as an insult to democracy. The incident has brought to light not only the political tensions in Punjab but also the contrasting approaches of different political parties towards crucial issues like the farmers’ struggle. As the investigation into the disruption unfolds, it remains to be seen how the political landscape in Punjab will be affected by these events.
