Patiala, April 8
Residents of Urban Estate (Phase 1 to 4) are now demanding that their area be included under the canal water supply scheme. The residents have raised the demand with the Local Bodies Minister Brahm Mohindra.
In a letter written to the minister, the residents said the project for the canal water supply scheme for Patiala city was approved, but Urban Estate (phase 1 to 4) were excluded from it. A letter written by OP Garg, secretary, Patiala Consumers and Telephone Subscribers Forum, said: “Consumers of Urban Estate have approached the forum. This was an injustice to people of the area… We, therefore, request you to kindly look into the genuine demands of the residents of your constituency and get the areas included in the canal water supply scheme at the earliest.”
Meanwhile, the work on the canal water supply project worth Rs342 crore is underway. It is to be executed in 36 months — by October 2023
Garg said: “We got to know about the project later. Thereafter, we have been writing to officials.”
Meanwhile, as part of the project, 21 underground service reservoirs of over 40,000-gallon capacity will be built at Lakkar Mandi, Tej Bagh Colony and other places. The project will also include overhead service reservoirs to be built across the city.
Officials said the work of the construction of a boundary wall for the project has already been started.
