Chandigarh, Jan 7 (UNI) Former Premier of British Columbia (Canada) Ujjal Dosanjh has urged the Punjab government to immediately update the laws, rules and regulations relating to property, revenue, rent and tenancy as the current rules had become redundant with the passage of time.
Mr Dosanjh made this demand during his meeting with Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal here today. In this context, Mr Dosanjh pointed to the grabbing of properties owned by NRIs in Punjab.
Emphasising the need to bring traffic awareness amongst the people, Mr Dosanjh asked Mr Badal to regularly launch special traffic campaigns to apprise the people about the traffic rules and regulations. He said that road safety was of paramount significance and should be on the top of agenda of the Punjab government so as to minimise the deaths occurring due to road accidents.
Mrs Raminder Dosanjh, wife of Mr Dosanjh and a teacher by profession urged the Chief Minister to revamp the school curriculum to make it more result oriented and need based. She offered to lend her expertise in the field through a tie up with British Columbia's Ministry of Education.
Later, Small Business and Entrepreneurship Minister of British Columbia, Harinder Singh Takhar also called on Mr Badal and evinced keen interest in setting up manufacturing units in the small industry sector in collaboration with the Canadian government.
Mr Takhar pointed out that Punjab had an excellent network of hosiery, automobile parts, sport goods, hand tools and machine tools industry.
The Chief Minister thanked both Mr Dosanjh and Mr Takhar for their valuable suggestions for the development and prosperity in the state. He urged them to dispel the wrong impressions from the minds of Punjabi NRIs about Punjab as they had a considerable influence on the Punjabi diaspora settled abroad due to their long and distinguished political career.
