After a big win in the Punjab election, AAP’s Bhagwant Mann is set to take oath as the chief minister on March 16 in Bhagat Singh’s native village.
Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Bhagwant Mann, who is set to take oath as the chief minister of Punjab on March 16, has issued orders to withdraw the security of 122 former MPs and MLAs, including many VVIPs, in the state.
According to the order issued by Mann on Saturday, except for the Badal family, who have been given security on the instructions of the Union Home Ministry and former CMs like Captain Amarinder Singh and Charanjit Singh Channi, the security of all other Congress and Akali Dal leaders has been lifted.
“On one hand, police stations are lying vacant, while on the other, security has been given to the leaders by setting up tents in front of their houses. We will take the load off the police. The safety of three and a half crore people is more important, said Bhagwant Mann.
