It was the turn of Chief Parliamentary Secretary Sarup Chand Singla to have another meeting on E-trip with industrialists here on Monday. He assured the industrialists that he would arrange another meeting with Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal to redress their problems.
Former BJP minister Satpal Gosain,however,expressed resentment at the meeting and reacted to the statement of Punjab Industry Minister Anil Joshi. In his recent meeting with industrialists,Joshi had stated that all those leaders in the government who were opposing E-trip were working more as Congress agents. Gosain had been opposing E-trip openly.
All those who called me a Congress agent should better introspect themselves. I am also for the welfare of the industry, Gosain said.
Though Joshi was criticised for his statement,the Ludhiana Cloth Merchant Association supported him.
