Patiala, June 7

Former Union Minister and MP Preneet Kaur today inaugurated the construction of an overhead tank at the Municipal Corporation office which is part of the Rs503-crore canal water supply project. The tank will be constructed at a cost of Rs4.75 crore.

She said all 12 overhead tanks, with an estimated capacity of 38.5 lakh gallons, would be constructed at a cost of Rs32.40 crore. “We are hopeful that after completion, the project will prove a lifeline for city residents,” she said.

Officials pointed out that the multi-crore water supply project would provide 24-hour uninterrupted clean water supply to the residents of Patiala. The project would be carried out by the state government under the AMRUT scheme of the Union Government.

Meanwhile, the Municipal Corporation is working on the modalities for the inclusion of 40 residential and other colonies outside the MC limits into the project. After a recent meeting with the Chief Minister’s office, representatives from Patiala had raised demands for the inclusion of these colonies and the Urban Estate area into the project.

Mayor Sanjeev Kumar Sharma said: “We are working on it and the modalities will be finalised soon. We aim at including 40 outer colonies and the Urban Estate area into the project.”
