Chandigarh, May 3

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Punjab, has asked Capt Amarinder Singh to make arrangements to meet the domestic needs of people before a possible lockdown and provide financial assistance to the needy and poor families.

Address oxygen issue

The AAP has urged Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to address the issue of shortage of oxygen by implementing a proper system of production and storage at Sri Guru Gobind Singh Refinery Phulokhari plant. Party legislator Baljinder Kaur has written a letter to the Chief Minister in this regard.

The AAP said the party would extend all possible cooperation to the Punjab Government and the people during the possible lockdown. In a statement issued from the party headquarters here on Monday, AAP Punjab president and MP Bhagwant Mann said in view of the impact of the Covid pandemic, the government was preparing for a complete lockdown in the state but the question was whether the government had found a solution to the problems faced by the people during the lockdown.

“Has any arrangement been made to meet the domestic needs of people?” Mann questioned the government. He said businesses would be shut during the lockdown and the employees of the factories and companies as well as construction workers would lose their jobs. — TNS
