Goof-up in hoardings

After the recent reshuffle in the portfolios of the Cabinet ministers of Punjab, OP Soni, who was earlier the School Education Minister, has now become the minister for Medical Education, Freedom Fighters and Food Processing. The hoardings put up by the organisers of the Universal Education Expo to welcome the Cabinet minister mentioned Soni as the Education Minister, even though he is now a Minister for Medical Education, Freedom Fighters and Food Processing. Vikas Vinayak, founder of the Universal Education Expo World, said we had planned this event before the reshuffle in the Cabinet. “We knew that the portfolio of OP Soni has been changed, but we did not feel the need to change the hoarding, as we had mentioned him only as the Education Minister. Even as the Medical Education Minister, he is still an Education Minister,” said Vinayak.
