Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Thursday sanctioned Rs 70 lakh for the restoration and conservation of the historic Lahori Gate and Delhi Gate of the famous Qila Sultanpur Lodhi in Kapurthala district.

Badal had recently deputed a team of cultural affairs led by the secretary, cultural affairs, Raji P Srivastva to visit the site for assessing the damage caused to these monuments due to recent heavy rain. The team sought Rs 45 lakh for the conservation of the crumbled Lahori Gate and Rs 25 lakh for the preservation of Delhi Gate, which too was in a dilapidated condition and needed immediate repair, a spokesman said.
