Raikot, June 9

Fatehgarh Sahib MP Amar Singh Boparai today laid the foundation stone of the proposed ultra-modern Noor Mahi bus terminal in the town.

Dr Boparai said construction of the new bus stand would persuade more residents to use public transport.

“As a majority of people had been hesitating to use public transport due to lack of a proper bus stand at the subdivision headquarters, we took up the matter with the Chief Minister who was kind enough to sanction a grant or Rs 3.91 crore for the construction of a bus stand in the memory of Noora Mahi, a Muslim follower of 10th Sikh Master Guru Gobind Singh,” he said.

The MP said the bus terminal, on completion, would also help enhance income of the Municipal Council and local traders too. — OC
