Muktsar, August 11

Despite the fact that numerous people have been booked for violating Covid-19 related guidelines in the district, politicians affiliated to major parties still don’t seem to bother much about the norms.

On Sunday, SAD’s ex-MLA from Malout visited Rathrian village, where a number of people joined the party in his presence. Surprisingly, none of them was wearing a mask. Earlier, too, he had held a gathering while starting repair work of Bathinda Chowk in Malout.

SAD’s Muktsar MLA and district chief Kanwarjit Singh Rozy Barkandi on Monday visited Sangrana village to inaugurate a volleyball ground and participated in a programme attended by a large number of people.

AAP’s Muktsar incharge Jagdeep Singh Kaka Brar visited some villages on Monday for a recruitment drive. In the photos uploaded by him on Facebook, people could be seen without masks.

Similarly, Congress MLA from Gidderbaha Amrinder Singh Raja Warring recently visited Badian village, where a large number of people had gathered to welcome him.

Earlier, too, on a number of occasions, politicians have violated the guidelines. “It seems the district administration and the police have turned a blind eye towards violations by politicians while poor people are being booked,” said a local resident.

A senior official of the district administration said they were regularly holding meetings with the police and asking them to take stern action against the violators. “If any politician has violated safety norms in the district, he/she will be booked as per the law,” he said.
