CM in Punjab Assembly

Published Jun 11, 2013 05:08am

CONGRATULATIONS to the new Punjab chief minister who has been elected to head the country’s largest province for the second consecutive time.

I hope and pray that this time he fulfils all his promises but I also hope that unlike in the past he should grace the assembly floor more often this time around. His previous assembly record has been dismal with only six appearances in the first one-and-a-half years following the 2008 elections and not more than a handful of appearances later.

He even missed out on some all-important budget sessions and even the session called after the drug reaction issue when he also held the portfolio of health.

As confidence of more than two-thirds of the entire house has been reposed in him, it is his duty to be accountable to this august house and its members.

He has over 10 ministries under his belt ; a world record. So, this time he may send his dummy.

It's because of in-built arrogance and looking down upon other colleagues as second rate.
