The Punjab government will table all reports of the various Commissions set up by it in the Assembly, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh announced on Wednesday.
The CM said this while replying to a query raised by the Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Singh Khaira during the speech of MLA Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa on the motion of thanks on the Governor’s address in the state Assembly on the second day of the Budget Session.
Talking to reporters later, the CM said that while the Narang Commission report was ready to be presented in the House during the current Budget Session, the reports of the Justice (Retd) Ranjit Singh Commision and Justice (Retd) Mehtab Singh Commission would be tabled in the Assembly once they are finalised.
The government had set up the Justice (Retd) Narang Commission to probe illegal sand mining while the Justice (Retd) Ranjit Singh Commission and the Justice (Retd) Mehtab Singh Commission were tasked, respectively, with investigating the sacrilege cases and false cases registered during the SAD-BJP regime.
The issue of the sacrilege cases figured prominently in the House as Congress MLAs, joined by the main opposition Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), cornered the Akalis head over the issues of drugs and lawlessness, as well as the cases of sacrilege reported during their rule.
The leader of the Opposition Sukhpal Khaira supported the efforts of the Captain Amarinder government to investigate the various allegations against the erstwhile SAD-BJP government and its endeavor to bring the guilty to book.
