Khaira slams govt for set­ting up rev­enue panel

Hindustan Times (Bathinda) - - Punjab -

CHANDI­GARH : The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wed­nes­day slammed the Congress govern­ment for set­ting six-mem­ber Rev­enue Com­mis­sion to make the ex­ist­ing land acts in the state more rel­e­vant to the chang­ing land use.

Leader of op­po­si­tion in Pun­jab as­sem­bly Sukh­pal Khaira said the rev­enue de­part­ment is al­ready top heavy at the state level and has an army of of­fi­cers at the di­vi­sional and dis­trict lev­els. “They are all trained of­fi­cers with decades of ex­pe­ri­ence in the field as well as the ad­min­is­tra­tive side. If the CM is con­cerned, he could set up a com­mit­tee of serving de­part­ment or other de­part­ment of­fi­cers to achieve the pur­pose,” Khaira said in a state­ment.
