Chandigarh, March 4, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) legislator Harinderpal Singh Chandumajra today exposed the hollow claims of the Congress government in taking up construction of two key roads stating the Congress government had deliberately not sent complete DPRs (Detailed Project Reports) for the Patiala – Kurukshetra and the Banga – Garhshankar roads which had been declared national highways during SAD-BJP tenure.

The SAD legislator while raising this issue said he had asked when work would start on the Patiala – Kurukshetra road after it was declared a national highway. “Former PWD minister Razia Sultana had admitted that the road had been declared a national highway and that the department was preparing a DPR which would be ready and submitted in 2018-19”.

Mr Chandumajra said to his shock when he asked the same question again on February 27 this year present PWD minister Vijay Inder Singla said the road had not been declared a national highway.

Mr Chandumajra said even the Banga – Garshankar road had been declared a national highway but the DPR was not sent in time because of which it was removed from the priority list. “It seems the Congress government has deliberately stopped work on both projects because they were approved during SAD-BJP tenure “, he added.

The SAD legislator also put up a call attention motion during the course of which he highlighted how industrial pollutants were polluting the Ghaggar river. He said a SAD delegation had met the Jal Shakti minister in this regard and the National Green Tribunal had also reacted to the issue.

He said it was unfortunate that the Punjab government was not doing anything to check industrial units of the area who were not using ETPs and STPs installed to treat industrial effluents before they were released from their factories.
