Jalandhar, September 15

Jalandhar Cantonment MLA Pargat Singh, along with 10 councillors of wards falling in his constituency, met with officials of the Municipal Corporation and raised various issues lying unaddressed for long.

At the meeting, the MLA said problems discussed during earlier meetings with the MC officials had not been looked into. Talking to The Tribune, he said: “Many important issues have been awaiting attention of the MC officials. I don’t know what is happening and when things will improve.”

Rohan Sehgal, Ward No. 26 councillor, said the demand of streetlights in his ward has been lying pending for a long time. There are only 10 safai karamcharis in his ward which is half the required strength of 20, he said. The councillors have been raising the issue of unequal distribution of safai karamcharis in 80 wards of the city for the past two years, ever since the Congress took charge of the civic body. He also raised the issue of non-lifting of waste at Model Town garbage dump.

Sarabjit Kaur, councillor of Ward No. 25, said patchwork in her ward has been lying pending for long.
