Congress MLAs, who are stuck in Chandigarh due to the curfew, have sought the CM’s help to reach their respective constituencies to participate in the relief and preventive operations in wake of the Covid.

Due to lockdown, the MLAs are finding it difficult to move out of Chandigarh.

“Despite best efforts by the Punjab Police, there were problems in the dispatch of relief material to the homeless, destitute and daily wage earners in Khanna, Tarn Taran, Zira, Jagraon, Ferozepur, Qadian, and other places. Due to personal rapport with the locals, we can add impetus to the drive”, said the MLAs.

The MLAs, Sukhpal Bhullar (Khemkaran), Parminder Pinki (Ferozepur), GP Singh (Bassi Pathana), Kulbir Zira (Zira), Fatehjung Bajwa (Qadian), Gurkirat Kotli (Khanna) are among the MLA stuck in Chandigarh.

“Due to the gravity of the situation, all ministers and MLAs, while exercising the precautions against the spread of Covid, should be asked to be present in their constituencies. People have voted us and it is our responsibility to take care of them,” said an MLA.
