Punjab Congress led by its chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring on Monday held a protest exterior the Deputy Commissioner’s workplace in Mansa to demand monetary support for the flood-affected individuals of the state.

Lambasting the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) authorities for its ‘incompetence’ and ‘mismanagement’ that intensified the floods within the state, Warring stated through the Congress rule, the celebration allotted lots of of crores of rupees for the administration, cleansing and restore of drainage techniques and canals earlier than the monsoon season to scale back the influence of incessant downpour.

“Now the government is hell-bent on wasting the funds for self-promotion and other PR activities, ” he stated.

Echoing the identical strains, Kapurthala MLA Rana Gurjit Singh stated that it was a man-made catastrophe.

“The ignorant and incompetent APP leadership deliberately overlooked the catastrophe that was coming. Had they held meetings in January or February with the local administrations and officials concerned to assess the preparedness before the monsoon, spent money on the management and repair of canals and drainage systems, the impact could have been reduced, ” he stated.

Expressing his disappointment over the way in which the AAP authorities ‘mishandled’ the floods that wreaked havoc within the state, Warring stated, “I travelled extensively within the state and interacted with individuals within the flood-hit areas.

“All the flood-hit individuals had one widespread criticism that the federal government they’d voted for within the title of ‘badlaav’ turned a blind eye in the direction of their issues and left them on their very own through the disaster.”

Criticising the federal government, former Cabinet minister Vijay Inder Singla stated that AAP has completely didn’t rescue the flood-affected individuals.

It was shameful that whereas the individuals of the state have been dealing with hardships attributable to incessant rains and floods, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and his ministers have been making deceptive statements that ‘everything is under control’, Singla stated.

Warring stated the celebration management has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, submitted memorandums to the Governor and urged the Chief Minister to announce monetary support on the earliest.
