The Tribune – Transporters seek Badal man’s ouster

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, 22 May 2017. After Congress MLAs, private transporters have now sought the removal of Harmel Singh Sra from the post of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Punjab State Transport Society.

He is a loyalist of the Badal family.

In spite of the change of guard, Sra continues to hold on to the post. The society, formed in 2011, handles the crucial project of automated driving tracks, the work of collecting a part of the fee levied for issuing driver’s licences and registration of documents.

“At a time when the Congress government is framing a transport policy to end the monopoly of Badal-controlled transport companies, the continued presence of such officials (Badal loyalists) gives a wrong signal,” said Jaswinder Grewal, president, Mini-Bus Operators’ Association.

Sources in the government said Sra had resigned, but certain clarifications had been sought by the Chief Secretary’s office.
