Four Improvement Trusts get heads, more on cards


Four Improvement Trusts get heads, more on cards

Chandigarh, July 8

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today cleared the names of the Chairpersons of four Improvement Trusts at Patiala, Ludhiana and Jalandhar and Amritsar. The appointments in other 26 Improvement Trusts would happen in the coming days.

The political appointments would be announced after approval by the Chief Minister in the coming days. Senior political leaders have been adjusted in the appointments. The development follows a meeting between the Chief Minister, Congress Punjab Affairs incharge Asha Kumari and PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar.

In the order issued this evening, Sant Banga, a close confidant of the Local Government Minister Brahm Mohindra, has been appointed as Chairperson of the Patiala Improvement Trust; Dinesh Bassi of the Amritsar Improvement Trust; Daljit Ahluwalia of the Jalandhar Improvement Trust and Raman Bala Subramanium of the Ludhiana Improvement Trust. On last Friday, Brahm Mohindra, who took over as the new Local Government Minister, replacing Navjot Singh Sidhu in the recent reshuffle, had put up the file to the Chief Minister for his approval.

It is learnt that 114 positions in different government bodies would be filled in the coming months. With the Congress has been in power for more than two years, resentment is brewing up among senior leaders due to delay in the appointments even as over 13 former bureaucrats, including those who retired long ago, have already been “adjusted”. Senior Congress leader Dinesh Bassi was denied ticket from Amritsar (East) during the 2017 Assembly elections, when Navjot Singh Sidhu was fielded. Bassi, who was not even allowed to contest the Amritsar MC elections by Sidhu, has now been compensated. — TNS
