Patiala, January 25
In a major relief to pilgrims visiting Gurdwara Dukhniwaran Sahib and Kali Mata Mandir here, Patiala Member of Parliament Preneet Kaur and Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla today laid foundation stones of two foot overbridges with escalators and ramps at both places.
Patiala MP Preneet Kaur said pilgrims were facing a lot of hurdles in reaching both religious institutions.
She said: “Due to heavy flow of traffic on the Patiala-Sirhind road, pilgrims face a lot of inconvenience in crossing the road to reach the gurdwara. Moreover, the road is also vulnerable to accidents. Therefore, the overbridge will be of a great help to pilgrims.”
She said: “The Kali Mata Mandir Temple, near Sherawalan Gate, witnesses a huge rush of pilgrims during Navratras, which disrupts the smooth flow of traffic. Foot overbridge with escalator and ramps at the temple will ease the situation”.
Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla: said, “Besides providing relief to pilgrims, it will also help in easing traffic congestion. A sum of around Rs 2.5 crore will be spent on the construction of these overbridges.”
