Khanna, May 16

Guardians of Governance (GoG) are eyes and ears of the state government. They are keeping a regular tab on every scheme allotted to them.

This was stated by senior adviser to the Punjab Chief Minister Lt-Gen TS Shergill (retd) while addressing the gathering in Kishangarh village, near Khanna, on Wednesday.

“GoG submit accurate, unbiased and factual-free report pertaining to the government schemes,” said Shergill.

“Chief Minister, Capt Amarinder Singh, himself regularly monitors these schemes so that report presented by the GoG is up to the mark, besides suitable and prompt action can be taken accordingly,” he added.

“The Chief Minister has given a huge responsibility to ex-servicemen by initiating the GoG scheme,” he said.

He clarified that any negative report sent by GoG was taken on priority basis and they did not interfere in the government’s functioning.

“Those who perform excellently are praised,” he added.

“At present, GOG are monitoring 18 schemes, which will be increased to 24 in the coming days,” he said.

“GoG are ensuring effective implementation of the government schemes,” said Lt-Col Harbant Singh Kahlon (retired), the GoG district chief.

Additional Deputy Commissioner, Dr Shena Aggarwal, Khanna SDM Sandeep Singh, SP (Headquarters) Balwinder Singh Bhikhi and others were also present on the occasion.
