Punjab BJP takes up demand for general category commission and welfare boardtext_fields
The BJP in Punjab has taken up the demand of people belonging to the general category for forming a general category commission and a welfare board. They have been staging protests against the government since November 26 over these demands.
The demands of the people of the general category are justified, said BJP leader Vineet Joshi. "The formation of a commission and welfare board for the general class will not cause any harm to people of any other category, but will definitely help every person of the general class. Also, the commission and the welfare board will listen to the demands and complaints of the general class students, employees, farmers, traders, shopkeepers and the vendors," Joshi said.
Such commissions were formed by BJP governments in Gujarat in 2017, in Madhya Pradesh in September 2021 and in Himanchal Pradesh two days ago, he said.
"If the BJP government will be voted to power in Punjab in the 2022 assembly elections, the party will constitute the general category commission and general category welfare board on priority," added the BJP leader.
