The next time you visit the Punjab secretariat don’t expect the minister or the secretary to serve you a cold lassi, samosa or burfi .
These ‘free’ delights are a history now as chief minister Parkash Singh Badal has limited the refreshment budget of his ministers and secretaries.
Obviously, the favourite summer delights were costing dear to the state exchequer. The chief minister called the hospitality department officials on Wednesday and asked them to stop serving free snacks and lassi .
However, the ministers and secretaries can still serve the delights but by spending themselves !
The Punjab secretariat canteen is located at the third storey ! Are you listening !
