The Chief Minister’s directive came after three Punjabi singers/actors made a representation to him through a Video Conference shortly after the Cabinet meeting. Rupinder Singh `Gippy Grewal’, Ranjit Bawa and Gurpeet Ghuggi pointed out that even though the Chief Minister had last month announced resumption of shooting in the state, the absence of clearly defined guidelines was making it difficult for them to resume work, which had been completely suspended during the lockdown period.

At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
