Mohali, September 3
The Haryana Governor, Mr A.R. Kidwai, inaugurated a clinic of Dr Batra’s positive health private limited in phase 3B2 here today.

The Governor congratulated the effort and said homeopathy had a lot of potential for medical science in the future.

The Governor’s visit to the township, however, did not seem to have prompted the Municipal Council to undertake cleanliness of the area.

The Governor’s cavalcade was within feet of a large garbage dump that had not been cleared.

The authorities had not even bothered to closely check the area for open electricity wires which lay loose barely feet away from where the Governor walked out of the newly inaugurated building.
