Bathinda, December 4

Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal laid the foundation stone for the upgrade of the Bathinda-Badal road at the cost of Rs 36.21 crore.

The road that leads to former CM Parkash Singh Badal’s and FM Manpreet Badal’s village was lying in utter disrepair for a long time. During the SAD-BJP regime, the 35-km stretch was well maintained. However, after the change of guard at the top level, the road remained in neglect.

Apart from this, the FM today also inaugurated newly constructed buildings of three government schools in the city — Rs 1.71-crore Government Elementary School, Haji Ratan; Rs 1.57-crore Des Raj Primary School, Kikar Bazar, and Rs 2.1 crore Government Secondary School and Government Primary School, Sanjay Nagar. The FM said an international-standard swimming pool was being constructed at Dhobiana’s school. He said he was trying his best to keep the government schools up to date. — TNS
