Punjab CM: Over Rs 300 cr spent on relief

Chandigarh, July 24

Slamming the SAD for questioning non-utilisation of Rs 64 crore from the CM Relief Fund, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday said the government had already spent over Rs 300 crore in providing Covid care and related expenses.

The fund has been set aside by his government for emergency purposes, to be used as and when needed. Ridiculing the SAD for criticising the state government for spending only Rs 2.28 crore from the amount accumulated in the CM Relief Fund for Covid support, Capt Amarinder said the source of financing Covid-related expenditure was totally irrelevant.

The Rs 64 crore balance lying in the relief fund was a drop in the ocean compared to the crores of rupees already spent by his government on infrastructural upgradation, setting up of Covid Care Centres, roping in additional medical and para-medical staff, he said. — TNS
