Minister of Forests and Social Welfare Sadhu Singh Dharamsot has claimed that the Punjab Government, led by Capt Amarinder Singh, is committed to provide all facilities, including assured power supply, to farmers of the state who have started transplanting paddy on Thursday.

Dharamsot was talking to this correspondent after addressing a gathering during the bhog ceremony of late Sardara Ram Dharamsot on Railway Road here on Thursday.

Evading questions on Navjot Sidhu’s not taking charge of Ministry of Power and New and Renewable Energy Sources, Sadhu Singh Dharamsot said, “Though I am not in a position to comment on this issue, our government, led by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, is committed to providing ideal facilities required for transplantation and cultivation of paddy in the state.”

Dharamsot appreciated that farmers of the region had started irrigating fields and transplanting paddy as the government kept its promise to provide the required and assured power supply from day one of the transplantation.

Dharamsot called upon residents of the area to associate with the government’s movement to plant saplings of shade and fruit trees at vacant places in the vicinity of their houses and workplaces. He reiterated that the Forest Department had did yeoman service by providing free saplings to all desirous people and organisations.
