Aam Aadmi Party is going to start ‘Punjab Yatra’ in state to identify the issues of public importance that can be raised in the Punjab vidhan sabha during the session. Addressing the media at Punjab Bhawan, Chandigarh AAP MLA and leader of opposition in vidhan sabha, Adv. H.S. Phoolka along with MLAs Aman Arora, Pirmal Singh Dhaula, Kulwant Singh Pandori, Jagtar Singh Hissowal and Amarjit Singh Sandhoa said that the motive of the yatra is to reach the people at grass root level and know their problems.Phoolka said that the yatra will begin from May 1 from Amritsar and will meet the people at different places in state. The people will be asked their issues and compiled as question to be raised in vidhan sabha. This kind of yatra will be hold before every session of vidhan sabha.AAP leaders Bhagwant Singh Dhillon, Amritpal Singh, Dr. Balbir Singh and Ashok Talwar will co-ordinate the yatra. Apart from the interactions during yatra, people can submit their problems by making a call at 0172-2740561.“Being leader of opposition in Punjab Vidhan Sabha, I have a greater responsibility of raising the issues of people of state. The purpose of yatra is to reach the people who have no access to their representatives and their issues are never addressed.” Phoolka said.Phoolka raised the issue of shorter vidhan sabha session than prescribed in the rule book of vidhan sabha. “It is clearly mentioned in the book that the sessions of vidhan sabha should not be shorter that 40 days in a year but the average of last few years is 15-20 days, so we will pressurize the government to extend it to 40 days so that the issues of people can be raised properly.” said Phoolka.
