Patiala- The senior advisor to CM Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh and Punjab government’s flagship scheme Guardians Of Governance’s senior vice chairman Lt Gen (retd) T S SHergill, PVSM today said that the main motive of this scheme is to create sense of responsibility and honesty in common man as well as government officers and employees so that better governance can be awarded to the real beneficiaries of various schemes.
Shergill today convened a meeting with the district administration as well as 167 Guardians of Governance.

For the past two and a half months, these guardians are working with the district administration to solve problems of people at grass root level in a commendable way.

Independent reports about these schemes are being sent to the Chief Minister’s office through a computer application whose data is sent to control room 24 hours. The Chief Minister himself monitors this entire project and the concerned Deputy Commissioners to get information about the same.

So that Punjab can be number 1 state yet again in country.
