MP inaugurates overbridge work at Mandi Gobindgarh

Fatehgarh Sahib, June 21

The Fatehgarh Sahib Member of Parliament (MP), Dr Amar Singh, accompanied by the Amloh MLA, inaugurated the work of an overbridge on the National Highway in front of the industrial focal point at Mandi Gobindgarh today. The 100-metre long bridge will be constructed at the cost of Rs 21 crore.

Addressing mediapersons Dr Amar Singh said due to internal movement of vehicles in the industrial area long traffic jams were witnessed, which inconvenienced locals and commuters on the National Highway. Local MLA Kaka Randeep Singh Nabha brought the matter to his notice, Dr said Amar Singh. He took up the issue with Union Minister Nitin Gadkari and the NHAI Chairman and they sanctioned the project, Dr Amar Singh added.

When mediapersons asked about his absence from the district Dr Amar Singh evaded all queries. Clarifying his long absence as alleged by SAD leaders, who had put up posters of him gone missing from the constituency, Dr Amar Singh said, “SAD leaders don’t have any agenda. They are indulging in cheap politics just to get media attention.”—TNS
