Capt. Kanwaljit Singh' Tragic Death in Road Accident

We deeply condole the tragic death of Punjab minister, Capt Kanwaljit Singh in a road accident near Kharar.

But apart from the utmost tragic loss of a very fine person, the accident shows how dangerous our roads are. If state minister is not safe on roads, no other user is.

Further, as a mark of grief, Punjab Govt. has declared today a holiday. While Govt. could have observed a day of mourning by having flags at half mast, this unexpected stoppage of work at Govt.offices would cause big and avoidable inconvenience to many members of the general public. Besides, today is the second last day of the current financial year. Today was indeed a very busy day for all.
