Kapurthala: Congress MLA Rana Gurjit Singh owns a distillery production unit which he had now converted it to a sanitizer manufacturing one. He is supplying sanitizers free of cost in his assembly seat.
Rana Gurjit, a former minister representing Kapurthala in Punjab Assembly, took the step after the govt prompted distilleries to manufacture sanitizers after they were being sold at an enormous price by some of its manufacturers.
Kapurthala has seen a significant surge in COVID-19 infections.
MLA Rana Gurjit in his maiden statement states “Within last week, I have supplied almost 50,000 bottles of sanitisers in the villages and urban areas in the Assembly segment. I am personally supervising the distribution operations after taking all precautions, including wearing a three-layered mask, gloves and maintaining social distance.”
Rana Gurjit was also the richest candidate in Punjab Assembly elections. He had also procured sodium hypochlorite for sanitising his constituency. “Punjab government has subsidised the chemical being sold by Punjab Alkalies Limited,” he added.
