Chandigarh, Sep 27 (UNI) Underlining the need to curb the VIP culture, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Monday asked the Ministers to keep their security personnel at the barest minimum as per the guidelines as he had already curtailed his own security.
Chairing a maiden meeting of the reconstituted Council of Ministers at Chief Minister's Office here, Mr Channi said that this initiative would not only be instrumental in deployment of extra security personnel judiciously but also save the general public from unnecessary inconvenience in this regard.
In order to provide easy access to the elected representatives like sarpanches, municipal councillors etc, it was also decided to issue an entry card from the office of concerned Deputy Commissioner/SDM and the holders of such card would be allowed hassle free entry in state government offices and Civil Secretariats in Chandigarh.
