Moga: The people of the border state of Punjab have access to weapons on a large scale. The people of the small state are more fond of Asle and this is the reason that now the governments are getting serious on this matter. The Punjab government is serious about the matter after the incidents that broke law and order in Punjab last day.
While the Punjab government has banned the issuance of new arms licenses for the next three months, no person can roam around with arms in hand in public places. District administrative officers across the state have started preparations to implement the orders issued by the Punjab government. By issuing an order in this regard on social media, the Punjab Police is advising the people that they should desist from taking photographs of any kind of licensed weapon and posting them on social media, otherwise action will be taken in any case.
The instructions issued by the police administration are being praised by the people, but a section also says that some people have to keep arms to ensure their safety and therefore it is not completely forbidden to keep arms. Rather strict action should be taken against the people allegedly possessing illegal weapons, because alleged illegal weapons have been used in most of the anti-social activities.

A political leader of the ruling party said that the maximum number of recommendations coming to the leaders of the ruling party these days are not for getting any development work done, but for making arms licences. He said that people need to be more conscious on this matter.
