Punjab cabinet expansion after Gujarat results: CM Captain Amarinder Singh

Chandigarh,Dec 8:-- Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has said he would go for a cabinet expansion after the declaration of Gujarat Assembly poll results on December 18. He, however, ruled out appointment of a deputy chief minister saying the Congress has no such convention. Chief Minister was addressing a press conference at the launch of the Congress Vision Document for the state’s urban development.


Captain Amarinder rejected the suggestion that his government has failed to implement many of its poll promises, which could affect the Congress party’s performance in the Municipal Council elections. He said that it is not possible to implement all promises in eight months, especially given the financial crisis inherited from the erstwhile SAD-BJP government. He said that the process of farm loan waiver would begin after the elections. Chief Minister disclosed that his government is mulling a change in the Excise Policy. The policies in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan are being examined, he added.
