Ludhiana: The project to cover a seasonal drain from Shivaji Nagar to New Shivaji Nagar is ongoing, but as soon as the AAP government came to power, policy started on this project.
On Thursday, AAP MP Ashok Prashar visited the drainage site with MC and Punjab state power utility officials to check for any impediments to the project.
On the other hand, BJP leader and former councilor Inder Aggarwal reached Mayor Balkar Sandhu’s office in Area D of Sarabha Nagar and asked him to complete the project on time.
He complained that the contractor had slowed down the work.
Inder Aggarwal said this project should be completed before the rainy season otherwise the general public will face a difficult time. “Another drain from Shingaar Cinema to the cremation ground is to be covered and the inauguration also took place in 2021 but the work has not started yet,” the BJP chief said.
MP Ashok Prashar, however, said there was a problem with the utility poles and transformers. So he visited the site with concerned officials and they also found a solution. He said they have started work to lay sewer lines along the drain to solve the problem of rainwater clogging the area. He said the project will be completed before the rainy season.
