Punjab News: Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann announced on the occasion of Diwali that the state government will hire 1,450 more police officers. Mann stated that 50 inspectors, 150 sub-inspectors, 500 assistant sub inspectors (ASIs), and 750 head constables will be hired out of these 1,450 police officers.
Youth Empowerment Initiative
“The motive is to make youth an equal partner in the socio-economic growth of the state,” he said. 37,683 young people were granted government jobs, according to the CM. For the Diwali celebration, licences to sell firecrackers at specific sites have been granted to over 450 sellers in Ranchi. Jaipal Singh Stadium, Harmu Ground, Doranda Ground, Bundu Ground, and the Zila School are among the venues.
Diwali Market Venue Change
However, because of Statehood Day events, the firecracker market will not be held in Morhabadi Ground this year. The actions are intended to guarantee safety, boost regional companies, and enhance the shopping experience. Both locals and visitors enjoy visiting the Diwali Market, which is well-known for its wide selection of products. Bhagwant Mann, the chief minister of Punjab, has demanded monetary rewards for farmers who don’t burn their paddy straw as well as a minimum support price (MSP) for substitute crops.
Support for Responsible Farming
He said that in the event that farmers lose money by choosing to grow other crops, the state government would fill the shortfall. Mann also said that although it’s a last resort, authorities may be forced to file a formal complaint against farmers if their unions press them to burn their stubble. The state administration is enforcing stringent regulations to deter stubble burning, and officials who do not comply will face disciplinary punishment.
Cricket Retirement Announcement
Indian cricket player Gurkeerat Singh Mann, who participated in three One-Day Internationals in 2016, has declared his retirement from both international and domestic cricket. The 33-year-old, who is well-known for his off-spin bowling and middle-order batting, gave inconsistent selection in the Punjab team as the reason behind his choice. During his seven seasons in the Indian Premier League (IPL), he played for clubs including Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Daredevils (now the Delhi Capitals), and Punjab Kings. Gurkeerat thanked his followers and hinted at the prospect of retiring and participating in international T20 leagues.
