CHANDIGARH: Punjab Transport Minister S. Laljit Singh Bhullar today urged NRI Punjabis to open 'booking and dispatch' services in Punjab for doing their transport business abroad.

Addressing the gathering after Inaugurating back office near Kultham (Banga) of Canada based Harman Transport Company, the Cabinet Minister said that by providing such services from the soil of Punjab, large number of youngsters of the state will get employment.

Transport Minister Laljit Singh Bhullar said, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann was making tireless efforts to make state a "Rangla Punjab", thus NRI Punjabis should also contribute equally in these efforts.

Appreciating the endeavour of Canada based company, which has very large bus fleet in Canada, for creating employment opportunities for around 100 local youths by opening this office, the Transport Minister asked the Punjabis diaspora associated with the transport and trucking business to open their such office in Punjab for generating employment for the youths of the state. He said that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had urged Punjabis expats to provide employment on their own land, and local youngsters will benefit from the 'booking and dispatch' operations of NRIs.

"Mann government will provide all kinds of support to the NRI Punjabis operating their foreign businesses from the soil of Punjab", asserted the Cabinet Minister, adding that "we will not let them face any difficulty." He exhorted the USA and UK based Transporters present in this event to start their such services from Punjab.

Prominent amongst others who were present on this occasion, included; MLA Sheetal Angural, AAP state spokesperson Advocate Paramveer Singh and Satnam Singh Jalwaha and others.
The Chief Minister said that Red Entries must be made in the Revenue records so that no one is able to sell or purchase this property. He said that top most priority must be accorded to this work adding that any sort of callousness in this work is unwarranted and undesirable. Bhagwant Mann asked the Chief Secretary and Director General of Police to personally supervise this work for its smooth execution in a time bound manner.

On the occasion, Chief Secretary Vijay Kumar Janjua, Additional Chief Secretary to CM A Venuprasad, Director General of Police Gaurav Yadav and others were also present.
