Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann:
Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that as per the Revenue Manual of the Punjab Government it becomes the duty of all district Deputy Commissioner’s to tour their respective jurisdiction during the winter months and inspect all the bandhs or embankments of all rivers, nallahs, canals and waterways within their respective areas and ensure that they are well maintained and can withstand the flood waters during the Monsoon rainy season. There is no reason whatever, to state that election duty kept them away from carrying out their laid down duty and responsibility and thus causing danger to the populace and the crops, which are the main stay of the Punjab economy. If there is a robust government in the state, it will take disciplinary action against the Deputy Commissioner’s who have flouted the rules and placed danger to the common man and damaged the state’s economy.
