Have written to PM Narendra Modi urging him to review the central directive extending BSF jurisdiction to over 50 kms deep from the international border of Punjab.sukhbir singh badal
Also conveyed to him the urgent need to have the decision rescinded along with 3 farm laws.
I wish to remind the PM that he was one of the most vocal champions of fiscal & political autonomy to states & as Gujarat CM had objected to a similar directive of then UPA govt.
Deploying BSF with sweeping powers amounts to imposing President’s Rule through the back door.
Those who fly in luxury, must know that low ATF prices make flying affordable & fulfil PM Modi Ji’s vision of ‘हवाई चप्पल से हवाई जहाज़’ through UDAN scheme.hardeep puri – union minister
Instead of questioning low ATF prices they should convince Congress-ruled states to reduce taxes & levies on fuel.
ATF prices in the country have always been lower than consumer fuels, also due to the fact that Centre charges only 2% central excise on ATF at UDAN airports.
Till now 387 air-routes have been awarded under UDAN scheme making aviation accessible & affordable for nearly 4 lakh passengers everyday.
PM Gati Shakti envisages doubling India’s existing aviation footprint to a total of 220 airports, heliports & water aerodromes by 2025.

It is our constant endeavour to boost medical related infrastructure across the nation. In Kushinagar tomorrow, 9 medical colleges will be either dedicated to the nation or their foundation stones would be laid.
