Ludhiana, January 25

Punjab Housing and Urban Development Minister Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria today laid the foundation stone of an upcoming leisure valley on six acres of land along the Buddha Nullah in the Haibowal area here. The leisure valley is being developed on a vacant piece of land by the Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) at a cost of Rs 2.96 crore.

Sarkaria was accompanied by LIT Chairman Raman Balasubramaniam, Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu, Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma, ADC (D) Sandeep Kumar, MC Councillors Maharaj Singh Raji, Rashi Aggarwal, besides several others.

Speaking to mediapersons on the occasion, the minister said the leisure valley would have lush green lawns, shady trees, dedicated footpath for walkers, joggers, open gym, kids playing area, canopies for sitting, benches, tubewell for water supply, modern lighting and many more amenities.

He said the Haibowal area, especially the localities along Budha Nullah lacked projects such as leisure valley and green belts and that was the reason that a vacant chunk of land had been identified for developing it. He expressed confidence that this project would prove very beneficial for the area residents while adding that the leisure valley would be developed in such a manner to have play areas for children, besides grounds and recreation areas for the adults.
