Jalandhar, November 20
The Finance & Contract Committee meeting will be held on November 24 and will be attended by Senior Deputy Mayor Surinder Kaur, Deputy Mayor Harsimranjit Singh Bunty and members of the committee — councillors Gian Chand and Gurwinderpal Singh Bunty Nilkanth.
One of the agendas that will be tabled during this meeting includes the installation of a tube well in Ward Number 66.
Notably, ward councillor Davinder Singh Rony had been asking to install a tube well in his ward for the past two years months. He had held several protests and lodged complaint that the Mayor had promised to install a tube well in Gopal Nagar, which falls in his ward, and a proposal for the same was also cleared. The councillor said not only the proposal, but the tender was also cleared and an order also passed.
“When I got to know that the tube well was rather proposed to be installed at Aman Nagar in Ward No.61, I felt betrayed and we held a dharna in front of the Mayor’s residence,” the councillor said.
The councillor said residents have been suffering for the past several years. “I have been raising the issue even before I became the councillor, but when the approval was finally given for it, such a thing happened which is not acceptable,” he said.
The councillor said it seemed they were living in a village, where there was no Municipal Corporation to look after the matter. “Even a tube well was not installed in an area where people are suffering due to shortage of water,” he said.
But now, the agenda in the meeting gave some hope to the councillor. — TNS
