Keeping in view the coming panchayat, block samity and zila parishad elections; PWD minister Sharanjit Singh Dhillon laid various foundation stones of development works in Sahnewal constituency on Monday.
He laid the foundation stone of a new block in Government High School, Kohara. The school building was insufficient for students and the people of Kohara village and nearby villages had been demanding construction of new rooms.
Dhillon said a sum of Rs 50 lakh will be spent on it and the work will be completed in the next two months.
Sharanjit Singh Dhillon also laid the foundation stone of widening and strengthening the link road from the Ludhiana Chandigarh Road to Bhaironmunna village.
Dhillon said that there was a heavy rush on this road and widening of the road was the need of the hour. The work would be started shortly and completed in three months.
Dhillon said that Rs 2 crore will be spent on these developmental works.
The third foundation stone was laid in Hiran village. Dhillon said, “The road from Hiran to Rayian to Shri Bhaini Sahib was very important. It served many villages of the area as bypass to Kohara Machhiwara road. The people of Bet area would have to travel a short distance to Sahnewal town after the widening of the road from 10 feet to 18 feet.”
Speaking on this occasion, Sharanjit Singh Dhillon said development in Punjab was the dream of chief minister Parkash Singh Badal.
Dhillon added that all link roads in Punjab were being repaired in the next few months at the cost of about Rs 14,000 crore.
Meanwhile, hitting at PPCC chief Partap Singh Bajwa, Dhillon said Bajwa had no right to criticise the ponds of Punjab villages. By criticising the ponds, Bajwa has humiliated Punjab, Punjabi and Punjabiat, Dhillon said.
