Taking stock of the ongoing development projects, he asked the urban local bodies department and the Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) to interlink the beautification and landscaping along with rehabilitation and maintenance of all roundabouts with the Swachh Bharat drive to achieve mission clean and green. It was informed in the meeting that 17 major roundabouts of the city were handed over to industrial houses for beautification, landscaping and their maintenance and the work on 13 roundabouts had been started.
The Ludhiana municipal corporation commissioner informed the deputy CM that Hero Group had adopted Rakh Bagh to make it world-class while some more green belts would be adopted by other industrial houses. He said the project would be completed at a cost of Rs 20 crore.
