Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has announced to downgrade his security. He is not in favor of carrying a corpse of security personnel with him.
Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi announced to step down his security. He said that I am one of you and I do not need an army of 1000 security personnel to be safe from my own brothers. Even after taking the oath, the Chief Minister had called himself a common man. His focus is on ending the VIP culture in Punjab.
In Kapurthala, Chief Minister Channi said, the day he became the Chief Minister, I got upset, how trapped I was. I am a free man. Said you know that 1000 people and 200 vehicles are engaged in my security. He said that when I asked my secretary Rahul Tiwari about reducing security, he said that intelligence has said that security cannot be reduced.
If something happens, who will be responsible? I said who will kill me? By killing me what will anyone get? Remove the security, if anything happens, I take responsibility for it. Just like 1000 people are walking behind me. I am a little Sukhbir Badal. Who has to carry so many gunmen. Just like that, the status symbol of security has been kept. From above, the clouds have bought rooms as big as rooms. Two crores are one, instead of vehicles, this money would have been spent on the poor. Eight such vehicles keep moving back and forth.
Security personnel will be deployed as per the need
Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi believes that as much security arrangements as can be done for him and other leaders, as much security fleet should be kept with him. Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi will not carry unnecessarily security forces with him. Security personnel will be deployed as per the requirement.
Security of other leaders will be reviewed
The security of other leaders in Punjab will also be reviewed. This information was given by Deputy CM Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa. He had said that the Chief Minister has asked to review the security provided to all the leaders and others in the state. He said that the Punjab government will completely end the VIP culture.
