Sukhpiar Singh of Chhateana village in Gidderbaha subdivision here is scheduled to get married with a girl from Zira subdivision in Ferozepur district on Monday. Till Saturday morning, he was worried about how things would take place in the ongoing curfew.
However, his just one tweet to the DGP Punjab worked and within three hours, he got permission to visit the bride’s residence with five persons for wedding.
Speaking over the phone, Sukhpiar said, “I had tweeted my request to the DGP Punjab in the morning. Within minutes, he forwarded it to the local police. Thereafter, I got a call from the SSP’s office to visit there along with the Aadhaar card to get the pass. In the afternoon, I got the pass validating five persons, including myself, to visit there. I am thankful to the police for this quick action.”
He said, “Earlier, it was decided that the wedding was to be held at Kotli village here. But now due to the curfew, it will be held in a simple manner at the would-be-bride’s residence. Even her family members have got permission from the local authorities.” Notably, the state government has also introduced an online facility to get curfew passes.
