Chandigarh, November 25

To ensure involvement of residents in making the city “the most loving place in India”, the BJP today launched “Mera Chandigarh Mera Suggestion” campaign.

In a media interaction at the city BJP office, Kamalam, MP Kirron Kher launched the campaign virtually.

Co-incharge of the city MC elections and MP Indu Bala Goswami, along with city BJP president Arun Sood, Mayor Ravi Kant Sharma, former president of city BJP Sanjay Tandon, former MP Satya Pal Jain and spokesperson Kailash Chand Jain were among those present.

Sood said, “Through this programme, we will try to establish a direct communication with the residents. The city residents will be invited and encouraged to share their suggestions/aspirations with the BJP, on the basis of which the party will prepare a vision document, Sankalp Patra, for the MC elections.”

A total of 200 suggestion boxes will be placed at different places in the city. Besides, there will be a phone number on which residents can give a missed call following which a BJP representative will call back to take suggestions.

Kirron said she might not be able to attend Chandigarh personally due to her illness and as per doctors’ advice, but she was virtually connected with every activity in the city. “I wish to make Chandigarh a world-class city and for this purpose, participation of public is really important. So, this campaign has been started today,” she said.
