Vacate govt land by May 31 or face action: Punjab CM gives ultimatum to squatters


Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Friday asked squatters to vacate government land by May 31 or face action.

The ultimatum comes a day after Punjab Rural Development and Panchayat Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal directed officials to ensure the removal of encroachments from government panchayat land by June 10.

Mann said the state government is committed to freeing land from squatters and an anti-encroachment drive will begin on June 1.
