Morinda, October 19

As CM Charanjit Channi is on a grant-distribution spree for developmental works in his Assembly constituency of Chamkaur Sahib, three AAP MLAs — Amarjit Singh Sandoa, Kultar Singh Sandhwan and Kulwant Singh Pandori — met him today and demanded that they also should be given funds for welfare works in their constituencies.

During his visit to Chamkaur Sahib villages since yesterday, Channi has already distributed cheques for Rs 90 crore to 138 villages and announced developmental works to the tune of Rs 1,000 crore. Ropar MLA Sandoa said Channi had granted funds for development in his constituency. The other constituencies, especially in Ropar, also needed his attention, he said.

The MLA said in many other states, the local area development funds worth crores were at the disposal of MLAs. “In Punjab, we have not been given even a single penny,” he said, as the three MLAs met the CM at Kalar village near Morinda. Representing Kotkapura in the Assembly, Sandhwan said people had been suffering in his constituency as the government had not allocated funds even for repairs. — TNS
