Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann is constantly in action mode. Mann has now decided to abolish VIP cells in state jails. Along with this, the AAP government has put a strict ban on mobile phones found in jails. After this order, a fast search drive is going on in the jails. So far 710 mobiles have been recovered from the jail.
CM Mann has already made it clear that VIP culture will no longer be adopted in jails. Now no criminal from inside the jail will be able to run his black business outside through mobile. Along with this, some officials who were negligent regarding this have also been suspended. The AAP government has said that now reform homes will actually reform the criminals and negligence of any kind will not be accepted.
Warning to those promoting gun culture
Earlier, Bhagwant Mann on Thursday warned singers who are allegedly encouraging gun culture through their songs. He termed such practice as unacceptable and said those involved would be dealt with strictly. Mann condemned the practice of some Punjabi singers to encourage gun culture and gang-banging and urged them to refrain from spreading violence, hatred and ill-will in the society through their songs.
The Chief Minister urged such singers to respect the culture and Punjabiyat of Punjab and strengthen the bonds of brotherhood, peace and harmony instead of promoting anti-social activities through songs. Mann called upon the singers to play a creative role responsibly and promote the cultural heritage of Punjab, an official statement said. The Chief Minister said this at a high level meeting with Deputy Commissioners and Senior Superintendents of Police on the issue of narcotics.
