Morinda, October 3: Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Sunday said that the new DGP would be appointed as per the law as the state government has already forwarded the panel of all senior police officers with 30 years of experience to the Centre.

Talking to the media persons on the sidelines of the state-level function of debt waiver scheme for farm laborers and landless farmers and launching of the pilot project of drone technology for mapping of rural properties under Mission Lal Lakir, the Chief Minister said now the state government was awaiting a panel from the Centre regarding three names finalized for the post of DGP.

Thereafter, the name of DGP would be finalized after consultation with PPCC President Navjot Singh Sidhu, all Ministers, and MLAs.

Mr. Channi further said that the state government is functioning with dedication, sincerity, and honesty, and to ensure transparency in its administration would be the topmost priority.

On the issue of retiring the government employees above 58 years, Channi said any employee who has attained the age of over 58 years would not be allowed to serve anymore so that the youth could be given chance for government jobs.
