Bhagwant Man reportedly has 42 vehicles attached to his convoy; AAP has been firmly entrenched in controversies

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann is again under fire from opposition parties, who have accused him of adopting a “self-contradictory stance” over “VIP culture”.

Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Congress, Partap Singh Bajwa, said that according to information obtained under the Right to Information Act, there has been an increase in Mr Mann’s convoy of vehicles since June this year. As many as 42 vehicles are attached to his convoy, which is more than former chief ministers including Parkash Singh Badal, Amarinder Singh and Charanjit Singh Chani.

In a statement based on information, Mr. Bajwa said that 42 vehicles have been provided to the Punjab Chief Minister’s convoy by the State Transport Corporation.

“In former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal’s tenure from March 31, 2007 to March 30, 2012, the number of cars provided to the Chief Minister by the State Transport Corporation was 33. In his second consecutive term from March 31, 2012, to On March 30, 2017, Mr. Badal had the same number of cars in his cavalcade. Similarly, former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had 33 vehicles in his cavalcade by the end of his tenure on September 19, 2021. From September 20, 2021 to March 2022, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Chani had 39 cars in his convoy,” said Mr. Bajwa.

Mr. Bajwa said, “There was a self-contradiction between what Mr. Did it bother Mr. Why is he spending taxpayers’ money so recklessly? How can he now afford such a huge cavalry?”

BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa accused Mr Mann of squandering public money to bolster his own security. “The revelation through RTI is shocking that the number of vehicles in the CM’s cavalcade remained at 33 during the tenure of the CM – Prakash Singh Badal and Captain Amarinder Singh, while numerous cars were added to the cavalcade of ‘AAM CM’ Bhagwant Mann to keep him safe . he said.

AAP and the state government have been strict on the issue and have been seen passing the buck. Interestingly, when asked about the Aam Aadmi Party’s reaction on the issue, AAP Punjab Chief Spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang suggested approaching the Chief Minister’s Office media responder while Navneet Wadwa, CMO media responder suggested State Information and Public Relations Officials for response.

IPR director Sonali Giri said on Thursday The Hindus that she is not authorized to react on behalf of the Chief Minister’s office.
