The state government will start providing sand from 100 commercial sites at the rate of Rs 5.50 per feet to the common people. Now people are getting sand from 32 public sites through tractor-trolley at Rs 5.50 per feet. It is also a target to increase the number of public sites to 150. The Chief Minister inaugurated the public site at Mao Sahib, and from there 200 trolleys are being filled daily. Due to this the labourers also earn well in a day. With this decision in Punjab, the labourer would get reasonable remuneration with the decision of manual excavation.

Meet Hayer said that there is a rule of law in Punjab and the opposition parties are maligning the name of Punjab, while Punjab ranks 17th in terms of crime rate. Presenting the data of the national criminal record, he said that the crime rate is very high in the states like Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.

Meet Hayer said that the Congress MLAs sitting in the opposition do not leave a single opportunity to defame Punjab without any reason and facts, but their own party enforced President rule in Punjab for eight times, Sikh massacre in Delhi and black days in Punjab. Gangster culture in Punjab is a gift given by the previous governments.
