It’s a direct reflection of the incapability of the Chief Minister to guard the pursuits of each Punjabi. In a roundabout vogue, the AAP Authorities in Delhi now has a authentic method to take management over the governing of the State, additional reinforcing the picture that the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Punjab is now a subservient puppet of the Chief Minister of Delhi. ”

“This sample of the Authorities of Punjab handy over governance to the AAP Delhi first started with the information sharing settlement signed with the Delhi Authorities, on 26th April, 2022 in direct violation of the constitutional provisions. The Congress had led a delegation to the Governor and submitted a memorandum outlining the problems with this settlement.
