Have promoted Vir Chakra awardee Satpal Singh of the #KargilWar from senior constable to ASI. He deserves special treatment, which previous @Akali_Dal_ govt didn’t deem fit to give him at the time of his recruitment in 2010. This is the least we can do for our brave soldiers. https://t.co/OUHuosvSSA— Capt.Amarinder Singh (@capt_amarinder) July 26, 2019
