Dharamsot gave an example of woman cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur who had been inducted recently by the Punjab government as a DSP in Punjab Police for her excellent performance in Women’s World Cricket Cup this year. He appealed to the people to motivate the youth to take up sports in their lives, and they should fight against the drug menace collectively. He also announced a grant of Rs 1 lakh for the tournament from his discretionary funds.
Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Satwinder Kaur Bitti gave details about development works being carried out in Sahnewal. She also claimed that the Punjab government would leave no stone unturned for Sahnewal’s development.
