Punjab Transport Minister S. Laljit Singh Bhullar, on Sunday, inaugurated the Institute of Automotive & Driving Skills at Govt ITI Rupnagar, the third such government institute in the state after Mahuana (Sri Muktsar Sahib) and Hoshiarpur.
The Transport Minister, while congratulating the people of the district, said that the state government has fulfilled the long-standing demand of the people of the region of setting up such driving skills center. Now, the people of the region will not face any hardship in obtaining a driving license and training.
Laljit Singh Bhullar, who was accompanied by MLA Advocate Dinesh Chadha and Deputy Commissioner Dr. Preeti Yadav, said that earlier such centers at Sri Muktsar Sahib and Hoshiarpur were covering all districts, thus the people of far-flung areas were facing a lot of difficulties. Now, with the tireless efforts of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann led government, RTO system is being initiated in every district, which will make easy for people to get training. Our government is fulfilling its commitment to provide better facilities to the people of the state, he added.
While expressing gratitude towards the Cabinet Minister S.

Now opening of such third center in Rupnagar is a matter of great pride for us.
