Amritsar 24 January (Punjab Post Bureau) – Member of Parliament for Amritsar Gurjeet Singh Aujla today held a protest outside Regional Passport Office Amritsar against massive corruption in issuance of passports/ advancement of appointment dates and the indifferent attitude of regional passport officer Mr. N.K Shil towards applicants. Aujla said that corruption and harassment of applicants has increased massively since Mr. Shil took charge of RPO Amritsar. He said that Mr. Shil was contacted directly by him and also by DC Amritsar but he refused to listen to or respond to the official communications which is due to his indifferent attitude towards Guru Nagri and racist approach towards Punjabis. It is worth mentioning here that during previous RPO’s tenure, hundreds of issues related to applicants were resolved with the intervention by the office of MP Amritsar.
A memorandum was submitted to Minister for External Affairs through Deputy Commissioner Amritsar. ADC (G) Surinder Singh received the memorandum from MP Amritsar Gurjeet Singh Aujla at the protest site.
Aujla reiterated that an aggressive campaign will be launched against RPO Amritsar and MEA top brass at New Delhi if Mr. Shil doesn’t mend his ways.
