Chandigarh, January 11, 2022: Punjab Congress chief Navjot Sidhu presented the first point of his Punjab Model on Tuesday. Sidhu said the state can generate around 1 lakh crore from tax collections, which usually go in the pockets of limited persons. "Punjab's economy has been given on a contractual basis. Mafia Model is operating in the state, which is run by those who are hand in gloves with each other," stated Sidhu He promised that the Punjab Model of Congress will create: 1 Liquor corporation 2 Sand mining corporations, both are state resources. 3 State will have a regulatory commission 4 Transport corporation to be promoted 5 Regulation of total outdoor advertisements Talking about liquor corporations, Sidhu said presently the spurious liquor is being sold in the state illegally. "With our proper liquor corporation, a minimum of six times revenue can be increased. The state will run its distilleries. Excise leakage will be stopped. Government to open its Thekas, that will employ the youth," Navjot Sidhu said. On sand mining, he said the illegal sand mining has not been stopped yet due to nexus and Thekedari system. "The moment sand will become state-owned, announcements can be made. Usually, the illegal sale of sand travels through trucks, and no one dares to check these trucks. There are 102 mining sites. In our model, the trucks will have computerized trucks and will have proper details. The Telangana model should be copied on this. Sand rates have never been fixed and it is the reason the mafia is operating it. By fixing the price of sand, maintaining the rate and date of the trucks, everything will be changed.5000 Direct and 20,000 indirect jobs can be generated through this," Sidhu further added. Talking about the cable mafia, the PPCC president said they will open the system for multiple operators as it will break the monopoly of cable operators like 'Fastway'. "These cable operators are stealing state property worth Rs several crores. The carriage fee will be levied on the operators in our model. The operators have to pay this to use their infrastructure on the state-owned properties. With this, the state can earn crores of rupees. The LCOs will also profit from this. Also, the state will try to recover from the huge loss faced due to cable mafias in the past many years. The state-owned television channel will telecast the 'Gurbani' and Vidhan Sabha session (complete)," Sidhu assured. Similarly on improving and upgrading the state transport system, Sidhu said that one permit will be given on short routes of villages. "Other states earn 20% of their total revenue through transport but unfortunately Punjab is not earning even 0.1%. Digitisation of time table Digitizationl be done. The Punjab Model will include - Online sale of tickets, GPS, grievance redressal, Mobile Application for ticketing, implementation of artificial intelligence. 1500 crore revenue can be generated through this," he claimed. Sidhu also claimed he will be ready to follow the path of anyone who will have a better Model than this model. "This is the crux and it will reverse the trend," said Sidhu.
