SAD holds BJP responsible for collapse of sewerage facility
Senior protestors of the SAD and the BJP today argued at a meeting held in the Town Hall to discuss problems pertaining to sewerage and water supply.
Scores of SAD activists loaded the venue and blamed the BJP leadership of misleading the “coalition dharma” by keeping the “big brothers” away on knowing that BJP councillors and departmental officers were entirely holding meeting with senior officials of the Punjab Water Supply and Sewerage Board (PWSSB) in the council.
Some of the SAD workers supposed that the BJP leaders were responsible for the failure of sewerage, sanitation and water supply facilities as they had given contracts to their favorites who took over funds than serving people. A block president of the BJP supposed that the Akalis had burglarized the state with open hands. SAD workers relaxed as officials approved to have separate meeting with them at the party’s local office.
Later, Congress workers met the officials and explained difficulties being faced by citizens in some colonies.
PWSSB Chief Engineer RK Goyal discussed the condition over the phone with Leader of the Opposition Sunil Jakhar. He guaranteed that super suction jet machines would land here on Monday to begin fixing the main sewerage pipelines for which Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had granted Rs 55 lakh.
