Demand for district status to Phagwara gathers pace

Residents raise the demand for making Phagwara a district at a meeting.

Jalandhar: The demand for making Phagwara a new district have started gaining pace. A joint meeting of representatives of almost all political parties of the city, prominent personalities, lawyers, writers and journalists was held recently in this regard. The participants at the meeting declared Phagwara a historic city with special political significance and sought district status for Phagwara. The speakers urged the state government to do the same without any delay. There are three large mills and two internationally renowned universities and more than two dozen quality educational institutions in Phagwara, they said. Phagwara, first being a part of the state of Kapurthala and then as a sub-division of Kapurthala district, has contributed a large share in the revenue and has made strides in development. The city also has the status of a corporation. During the meeting it was agreed that every political party and organisation should send a memorandum to the Capt Amarinder Singh on their behalf as this demand has been raised many times before.
