Highlights of the story
- Chadha will give advice on how the government works
- BJP said: This is a shameful day for the Punjab
The government of the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab made a major decision on Monday. Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha has been appointed chairman of the advisory committee of the Punjab government. This advisory committee will advise the government on its operation. Apart from this, the committee will also make recommendations to improve the functioning of the government. On this, the opposition has begun the siege of the government of Bhagwant Mann.
A CMO spokesman said the chief minister on Monday approved the dossier on the appointment of Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha as chairman of the government advisory committee. He said Raghav Chadha has been a student of the best educational institutions around the world like Modern School, Barakhamba and London School of Economics. Raghav is an accountant by profession. He has also worked with some of the largest corporate companies in the world.
Raghav was the adviser to the finance minister of the Delhi government
Earlier, Raghav Chadha has worked as financial adviser to Finance Minister Manish Sisodia in the Aam Aadmi party government in Delhi. Chadha was only paid the Re 1 salary of the Delhi government. He has tried to prevent revenue theft and reduce corruption.
Promotion of Punjabi culture in Delhi
The Punjab government said Chadha’s family is resident in Jalandhar. A few decades ago, the family moved to Delhi in search of work. However, Raghav Chadha remained firmly rooted in his roots and worked to revive the Punjabi Academy in Delhi, thus promoting the Punjabi language and culture in the national capital.
The Punjab will benefit from the experience of Raghav: Government
Now in his new position, Raghav Chadha will take on the responsibility of overseeing the functioning of the AAP government in Punjab and will advise the government on financial matters if necessary. The government said the Punjab would benefit from Raghav’s experience and could be a big help to the indebted state. Raghav is expected to play an important role in the financial planning and debt release of the Punjab.
One who has no mandate is above CM: BJP
Now the government can easily sell the rights: Harsimrat
At the same time, the opposition has attacked the government of Bhagwant Mann after Raghav was appointed chairman of the advisory committee. BJP leader Tarun Chugh said this is a shameful day for the Punjab. A man who does not have the mandate of the people of the Punjab will lead the administration above CM Bhagwant Mann.
Raghav Chadha is the modern “viceroy” of the Punjab: Congress
Akali Dal leader and MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal tweeted and said: Now the Aam Aadmi party can easily sell the Punjab and its rights. Punjabis should be prepared for a long battle ahead, starting with Chandigarh and SYL. The Punjab is fine from today and is really at the mercy of Delhi. Raghav Chadha, the remote control of AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal, became the CM. The de facto CM Bhagwant Mann of Punjab sent a wedding permit.
Punjab Congress President Amarinder Singh Raja Waring has mocked Raghav Chadha. He said, “What is Chaddha’s experience of becoming a super-CM over Bhagwant Mann? I feel sad that the Punjab, the land of the greatest emperor of all time, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, is now ruled by an outsider who has no government experience and that too when we already have a democratically elected electorate here.The government has passed.
He further said that he “remembers the times of the Raj when British rulers used to appoint a viceroy to protect and safeguard their interests in India.” He said, “The ruler of Chadha is the new viceroy appointed by Arvind Kejriwal, with Bhagwant Mann acting as an obedient and subordinate Jagirdar.”
It will make Mann proud: Raghav Chadha
At the same time, Raghav Chadha has thanked the Punjab government. Raghav Chadha said that Man Sahib has given me the opportunity to serve the people of the Punjab. I received his blessings as I began my new role. I will shed my blood and sweat to make my older brother and Prime Minister Bhagwant Mann proud.
