Jalandhar, January 9

As the civic body polls are drawing near, political parties have begun stepping up their activities.

While the Congress is busy doling out funds and announcing development works, the Shiromani Akali Dal, Aam Aadmi Party and Bharatiya Janata Party are busy approaching each other’s workers who had been working for the community.

SAD chief Sukhbir Badal on Friday visited Jalandhar and held several meetings with leaders from across Doaba. Badal reportedly asked the party leaders and workers to look for good Hindu faces who could perform well in urban areas.

The launching of five new schemes across Punjab, including those for slum dwellers, smart meters, e-Dakhil, Dheean Di Lohri and distribution of sports kits, too, can be seen in light of the upcoming elections.

Former Punjab Youth Congress chief and Phillaur incharge Vikramjit Singh Chaudhary inaugurated multiple works worth Rs56.03 lakhs in Phillaur today. These works include water tank for supplying safe drinking water to residents, laying of interlocking tiles, installation of streetlights, construction of a crematorium and boundary wall of a gymnasium.

Anandpur Sahib Congress MP Manish Tewari also distributed cheques to initiate the development works. He inaugurated works costing Rs27 lakh in Balachaur block and handed over cheque for Rs33 lakh. He also gave Rs16.60 lakh for the development tasks.
